Ain't no drought in California! Drink all you want, fill your pools, plant lawns everywhere. Hell, turn your sprinklers on just cuz you fucking well can.

those things are not terribly significant in california. i think trump was talking about this stuff:

Statewide, average water use is roughly 50% environmental, 40% agricultural, and 10% urban.

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/416918/no-farmers-dont-use-80-percent-californias-water-devin-nunes

i'm not saying we shouldn't allocate 50% for environmental uses, only that trump is not just completely making shit up.

one more, a famous old irish nationalist song Óró sé do bheatha 'bhaile, which means approximately "welcome home":

Roisin El Safty is also excellent (and better looking!) but maybe not quite as good.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Friday he no longer wants to debate Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.

I don't see how the idea that Neanderthal DNA contributes to the intellegence of modern man is politically incorrect.

read a bit about the geographic distribution of neanderthal genes...

btw, here is a guy who is obsessed with the idea that asperger's disease comes from neanderthals. kinda crazy sounding, but maybe not wrong:

people with autism generally have larger brains, as did the neanderthals:

also interesting: autism may have come from neanderthals along with genes for higher intelligence.

HydroCabron says

SJW's and other feminist butthurt-causing stimuli weren't present when Italians supported Mussolini, or during many other outbreaks of fascism and authoritarianism.

@HydroCabron a bit more proof you're very wrong. fascism was indeed partly a reaction to feminism:

Looking back over the past years of Germany’s decline, we come to the frightening, nearly terrifying, conclusion that the less German men were willing to act as men in public life, the more women succumbed to the temptation to fill the role of the man. The feminization of men always leads to the masculinization of women. An age in which all great idea of virtue, of steadfastness, of hardness, and determination have been forgotten should not be surprised that the man gradually loses his leading role in life and politics and government to the woman.
...
The modern age, with all its vast revolutionary transformations in government, politics, economics, and social relations has not left women and their role in public life untouched. Things we thought impossible several years or decades ago are now everyday reality. Some good, noble, and commendable things have happened. But also things that are contemptible and humiliating. These revolutionary transformations have largely taken from women their proper tasks. Their eyes were set in directions that were not appropriate for them. The result was a distorted public view of German womanhood that had nothing to do with former ideals.

A fundamental change is necessary.

I'm sorry, but that's not historically accurate. Our founding fathers preferred raping their child slaves over consensual sexual relationships.

you mean Sally Hemings? she was young, but what makes you think Jefferson raped her?

that root has not been discovered yet, but given that languages map pretty well to human genetics, maybe the closest to the original human language is bushman, which is spoken by the people who are genetically closest to original humans before they migrated out of africa.

these class action ads are on the air as much as the ads for the drugs, often an ad for the drug followed later by an opportunity to sue for taking the same drug.

lol! perfect.
