What's the point of one of these so-called Trump Cards"? It makes you a (literally!) card-carrying Trumper, fine. So I guess it's good to identify its bearer as an Us rather than a Them. But does it do anything else? Like, does it grant a discount on purchases from Trump-owned businesses..?

Discounts on steaks, university tuition, and magazine subscriptions.

The twitterverse is having a great time with it.

To distinguish cult members from bystanders?

The point is to identify the 25% of the US population that thinks "Official" is spelled "Offical".

You know it wouldn't be a real Trump product unless it had a misspelling in it somewhere.  Covfefe!

Judge says Norwegian Cruise can require vaccination proof, despite DeSantis ban


Trying to prohibit cruise ships from keeping the plague away was an action so stupid you immediately know it came from a Trumper.

I was reading a story where suddenly an Italian woman was talking about “mia moglie”, not “mio marito”, and I thought, that’s a weird error. Italy is surely too Catholic to have gay marriage.

Nope! They’ve had unione civile for 5 years now. Colloquially they use husband and wife terms. I came upon this table.



it’s kinda amazing how fast western civilization is leaving bigotry behind.

I don’t actually have anything useful or interesting to say, I just want to see my name on page 666 of The Bathroom Wall. After 15 years of hanging around this board, I feel like I deserve it.

:p

Perhaps they're for playing Cluedo/Clue.

Presumably, Trumpers don't play bridge, because they could never bring themselves to make a "No Trumps" bid.

Far-right newspaper The Washington Times says Mike Lindell’s PROOF that the election was haxxored is not legit according to his own guy.

By Joseph Clark - The Washington Times - Wednesday, August 11, 2021
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The cyber expert on the “red team” hired by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell now says the key data underpinning the theory that China hacked the 2020 election unveiled at the Cyber Symposium is illegitimate.
Mr. Lindell said he had 37 terabytes of “irrefutable” evidence that hackers, who he said were backed by China, broke into election systems and switched votes in favor of President Biden. The proof, he said, is visible in intercepted network data or “packet captures” that were collected by hackers and could be unencrypted to reveal that a cyberattack occurred and that votes were switched.
But cyber expert Josh Merritt, who is on the team hired by Mr. Lindell to interrogate the data for the symposium, told The Washington Times that packet captures are unrecoverable in the data and that the data, as provided, cannot prove a cyber incursion by China.


LOL

Trumpers are suuuuuper pissed at Amy Coney Barrett for siding with over a century’s jurisprudence that, yeah, duh, vaxx mandates are totally legit for dealing with plagues, you dipshits.

Quote
(CNN)Justice Amy Coney Barrett declined a request to block Indiana University’s vaccine mandate, signaling that similar policies going into effect amid a Covid-19 surge could pass legal muster.

Barrett, who has jurisdiction over the appeals court involved in the case, acted alone without referring the matter to the full court.
Barrett’s action marks the first time the justices have been asked to weigh in on the legality of a mandate that private and public entities increasingly believe will combat the spread of Covid-19.

The Pentagon moved recently to mandate the vaccine for active-duty military members, and California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Wednesday that teachers and other school employees must either be vaccinated against Covid-19 or submit to regular testing.
Indiana University requires students to be vaccinated by the start of the fall session on August 23. If students can’t get both doses done by then, they will be tested weekly until they can get the vaccine. If they qualify for an exemption, they are also tested weekly.

“IU is coercing students to give up their rights to bodily integrity, autonomy, and of medical treatment choice in exchange for the discretionary benefit of matriculating at IU,” James Bopp, a lawyer for students who objected to the school’s requirement, told the Supreme Court in an emergency petition asking the justices to act by the end of this week.
Bopp said the students’ refusal is “based on legitimate concerns” including underlying medical conditions, having natural antibodies, and the risks associated with the vaccine.
Lower courts have ruled against the students, citing a Supreme Court decision from 1905, which said that a state may require vaccines against smallpox.

A panel of judges on the 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals — all Republican appointees — said that vaccination requirements “have been common in this nation” and stressed that the school’s policies allow exemptions for those who have medical issues related to the vaccine or religious objections.

“These plaintiffs just need to wear a mask and be tested, requirements that are not constitutionally problematic,” the court held, and added that otherwise, vaccination is a condition for attending the university. Those who do not want to be vaccinated may “go elsewhere.”
“A university will have trouble operating when each student fears that everyone else may be spreading diseases,” the court held. “Few people want to return to remote education — and we do not think that the Constitution forces the distance-learning approach on a university that believes vaccination (or masks and frequent testing of the unvaccinated) will make in-person operations safe enough.”
Indiana University spokesperson Chuck Carney said that 85% of students, faculty and staff already “are approaching full vaccination.”
“With a third ruling, now from the nation’s highest court, affirming Indiana University’s COVID-19 vaccination plan, we look forward to beginning fall semester with our health and safety policies in place,” Carney said.
Bopp said the students are “disappointed that Justice Barrett refused to intervene” but they will continue to fight the vaccine mandate at lower courts.



FWIW, Bopp, the plaintiff’s lawyer, is a Republican activist who’s been involved in a lot of unsuccessful lawsuits to deny gay people rights, overturn the 2020 election, etc.

I’m reading Zimmer’s popsci book Evolution: the Triumph of an Idea, and just wanted to note that it’s a very pleasurable overview of the historical development and rough outline of the basic theory.

I just got a fb ad from the centre for the removal of science from culture. I reported it as fake news.
