Penal labor in the United States, including a form of slavery or involuntary servitude, is explicitly allowed by the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. ... Unconvicted detainees awaiting trial cannot be forced to participate in forced rehabilitative labor programs in prison as it violates the Thirteenth Amendment.
So now you see what the rush to convict migrants of something/anything is.

Israel, except it's all fenced off and the only people that live there are carnival people that bark all the make believe rides.

Putting the Clorox in communion one stupid convulsing Xtian at a time.

They think the black-hole flare may have been caused by the close passage of either a star called S0-2 last year or a dusty object called G2 in 2014.
So, do you want to be a star or a dusty object?

Update: People argue a whole lot less on this site.
Smoke em if you got em, talk amongst yourselves.

Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Madam’ Ghislaine Maxwell Spotted at In-N-Out Burger
It's articles like this that make me read more news.
Too bad she's not a proper villain, she is rather interesting.

@eldang so we agree on a cell, but we're negotiating which one?

Apparently the ICE prison guard who drove into a group of protesters on Wednesday has resigned. [source: email from the Never Again national organising group]

Okay, this whole fucking every street corner has to have a microbrewery shit is getting real damn old.

Scientists discover new state of matter
We could have all sorts of cool findings like this but no, a large group of stupid motherfuckers keep voting for the duopoly.
Thanks for the connect, happy Friday!

The only purely scientific, peer reviewed, published article definitive study on the flat Earth topic is the famous cat experiment.
That cats have not pushed everything off the edge of the earth is solid proof that it's somewhat round. Particularly at it's edges.

The value of one Dow Future contract is 10 times the value of the DJIA. For example, if the DJIA is trading at 12,000, the price of one Dow Future is $120,000. If the DJIA rises by one point, the value of a Dow Future will increase by $10. A futures buyer makes money when the DJIA rises.
All things being equal, it's more logical to be a buyer from the futures.
