The United States “justice” system and the “War On Drugs” were both designed to keep those who were once slaves as slaves long after slavery was made “illegal”.
Is Hawaii state Rep. Tom Brower asshole of the day for smashing the possessions of the homeless with a sledgehammer?
Much like Batkid, Hawaii has found its own superhero. Except that instead of protecting the powerless from harm, he roams the streets with a sledgehammer and looks for homeless people in order to literally smash their possessions.
Remarkably, this vigilante isn’t just some random Hawaiian, but five-term State Rep. Tom Brower (D).
Noting that he’s “disgusted” with homeless people, Brower told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser about his own personal brand of “justice”: “If I see shopping carts that I can’t identify, I will destroy them so they can’t be pushed on the streets.” Brower has waged this campaign for two weeks, estimating that he’s smashed about 30 shopping carts in the process.
What Would Jesus Do? Smash the possessions of the poorest among us. At least that’s what this asshole thinks.
Tom Brower is without a doubt the asshole of the day.
I got overrun, that’s what happened.
Republican House Speaker JOHN BOEHNER, responding to a question from President Obama during a meeting as the government shutdown began October 2.
The question? ”John — what happened?”
Its good to know our speaker can’t control his own hordes. Really fucking cute.
You know there’s something wrong with America when kids can serve openly in Christmas, but gays can’t celebrate the school in military.
239. That is the number of vacation days that our Congress will have in total at the end of this year. 435. That is the number of representatives we have at any given time. 174,000. That is the number of dollars EACH representative makes a year. 4,660,000,000. That is the number of dollars taken from our taxes in ONE year to pay for all of their benefits. These are the fucking moochers, not that poor kid that just bought a snickers bar with his food stamps.
