Blame your esteemed US Supreme Court.

Biden is forgiving $37M I’m student debt for the University of Phoenix because they found the school had misled students about job prospects.
I don’t know how to rate Biden as president, but the Biden administration* is great, by some distance the best of the last 50 years.
*Garland still sucks. Not as much as @diablodelsol thinks , but he sucks.
You call this great.
- Clinton (and possibly Hillary too if Trump didn't steal election)
- Poppy Bush
- Tricky Dick
* Ford INC but gets low marks for Nixon pardon guaranteeing us decades of constant Republican fvckery
Pretty much mine, but it does flatter Trump even by placing him last. He's really in a class by himself.
He is one of the most vile creatures America has ever shat out IMO and I hope his parents are being skullfcked by demons in hell for even creating him. But it was just the ranking of recent presidents.
Preet had good discussion of the Hunter Biden gun charges
1. wildly overcharged - usually you only charge this when you are trying to get at something else, eg my dude is a gang member or in the drug trade
2. odd charging decision given separate agreement to give diversion for them previously - which both Joyce and Preet felt was about right
3. Likely unconstitutional given recent Court decisions
So basically politics now mean he has been wildly overcharged instead of getting a decent deal.
LOL, I call that a stupid video. The first meme about whether Biden or his staff are in charge is an easy one.. His staff is in charge of managing his calendar at this type of event. Anyone that has ever had interactions with a high ranking person knows that they have a very full calendar and that they like to talk, which causes them to overrun meetings and if they overrun one meeting, it generally means they are late for the next.
As for Biden "forgetting" to shake Lula's hand.. You should really watch the video. For one, Lula wasn't trying to shake Biden's hand, so.. Yeah, that's out right away. For two, Lula was asking if Biden could hear him because Biden clearly didn't have the headphones for translations in his ear yet. Unless, of course, you think the President of Brazil is speaking in English at a press conference where snippets are going to be shown in Portuguese speaking Brazil.
Such a sad state of trolling.
Yeah. I read somewhere the Hunter has a really good chance of getting the gun charge dismissed due to selective prosecution. As you mentioned above, lying on the background form is almost never charged anyways (It was in the low hundreds) and generally is an additive charge, not a solo charge. Basically, the key to Hunter's defense is going to be that the only reason he was even investigated is because he was used to politically harm his father.
Also, with regards to 3, apparently in addition to the 5th circuit ruling, there's been a ruling in a lower court in Pennsylvania that ruled it unconstitutional as well. Pennsylvania and Delaware are in the same circuit, so that at least means it has some merit for his case.
Yeah, but the Portsmouth fisherman said that Republicans were good for the economy!
They dug deep and it's all they could come up with? Donnie Jr owns multiple guns and is always off his ass.
I'll concede the first paragraph , perhaps the President was late for another meeting.
If Lula wasn't going to shake President Biden's hand why did he shake the other guys hand ?The gesture Lula made as he walked off sure seemed like an agitated gesture.
At least Biden didn't shove him out of the way as Trump did to a nation's leader!
Hi Game of Billions
It’s admirable the way you’re zeroing in on these important considerations rather than getting hung up on boring stuff like policies and accomplishments.
It's the Wingnut playbook and as much as we despise it, it's highly effective. Mainstream outlets are now calling him too old & addled and Kuh-mullah is stealthily going to take over in early 2025. Of course if he doesn't replace her next year with AOC, Ilhan Omar, Hunter or Hillary.
It's also worth noting that Biden and Lula shook hands after Lula finished with his remarks and before the other guy spoke. So, keep on keeping on.
Brian’s hat just got him in huge trouble in a meeting. Mr Andrews made Brian take off his hat. He said it was distracting. He said if anyone disagreed, he’d let Brian keep the hat on. Nobody said shit dude. Nobody said shit.
I appreciate these responses, because then I can look up the quote and watch something funny. I had only seen the "we're all trying to find the guy who did this" hot dog costume sketch from that show before.
Highly suggest watching I Think You Should Leave on Netflix if you have it. Probably my favorite comedy right now. And they get big name actors like Andy Samberg and Bob Odenkirk.
Plus, Tim Robinson (And Sam Richardson) also made a great show called Detroiters that shows the Detroit I know and love.
Around 12 min mark.
Senator Robert Menendez Is Indicted in New York
There goes Biden again, using "his" DOJ to weaponize government.
I really do hope Menendez gets convicted this time, loses his fortune, and spends some of the rest of his days behind bars.
He is a crook.......good riddance. Plenty of goos people in NJ who can take over the role.
