It's like speeding, man... when you hand a cop a hundred dollar bill you gotta do it like it's second nature... "Hey, officer... you got me, man, here's my donation"... you can't tentatively hang it over the door like a piece of lettuce, you gotta just put it in his hand so he feels like he earned it... Just make sure your left elbow is blocking the camera's view of the transaction.... Now when there's TWO cops it's a whole different system... Michael Brown shoulda just tucked the cigars in the whitw cop's breast pocket.... patted him on the back and handed him a Franklin, and he'd still be here today... KIDS!...

So, um, two good lookin' women are having a douche together... the male attendant says to the first one, "Ma'am, would you mind rolling onto your left side for me?" She rolls and as she does she says, "Ma'am? What am I your mother?"

So, two veterans are standin' on a bridge pissin' in the river... one leans over to the other and says, "Men!"

You see that, boy?... Humor, real belly-laughin' guffaws an' snot blowin' out your nose humor, comes first from your soul, you gotta be a funny person in the first place... but a lot of it comes from asking seemingly simple questions and then providing unexpected answers.... It's sorta like how I know YOU'RE a veteran... you're obedient... you go, unerringly, to where I want you to go.

You see, surprised? The thing that makes this joke funny is that 1. It's about you in a sorta back-handed way... and 2. The punch line has NOTHING AT ALL to do with the set up.... Get it? I didn't think so... Anyways, whatever humor is, you don't got it, child...

No, man, I don't want to... aisle seat only for this brother..... I flew to San Diego a few months ago and I was in a middle seat on a fully booked plane and you know what I ended up doing? I took my belt off and belted my elbows together so I could fit between two other full grown men...

"Stop and seize
Aggressive police take hundreds of millions of dollars from motorists not charged with crimes
Written by Michael Sallah, Robert O’Harrow Jr., Steven Rich
Published on September 6, 2014
After the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the government called on police to become the eyes and ears of homeland security on America’s highways.
Local officers, county deputies and state troopers were encouraged to act more aggressively in searching for suspicious people, drugs and other contraband. The departments of Homeland Security and Justice spent millions on police training.
ABOVE:: Video images from YouTube, Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and Seward County Sheriff’s Office.
The effort succeeded, but it had an impact that has been largely hidden from public view: the spread of an aggressive brand of policing that has spurred the seizure of hundreds of millions of dollars in cash from motorists and others not charged with crimes, a Washington Post investigation found. Thousands of people have been forced to fight legal battles that can last more than a year to get their money back.
Stop and Seize: In recent years, thousands of people have had cash confiscated by police without being charged with crimes. The Post looks at the police culture behind the seizures and the people who were forced to fight the government to get their money back.
Part 2: One training firm started a private intelligence-sharing network and helped shape law enforcement nationwide.(Coming Monday)
Part 3: Motorists caught up in the seizures talk about the experience and the legal battles that sometimes took more than a year.(Coming Tuesday)
Behind the rise in seizures is a little-known cottage industry of private police-training firms that teach the techniques of “highway interdiction” to departments across the country.
One of those firms created a private intelligence network known as Black Asphalt Electronic Networking & Notification System that enabled police nationwide to share detailed reports about American motorists — criminals and the innocent alike — including their Social Security numbers, addresses and identifying tattoos, as well as hunches about which drivers to stop.
Many of the reports have been funneled to federal agencies and fusion centers as part of the government’s burgeoning law enforcement intelligence systems — despite warnings from state and federal authorities that the information could violate privacy and constitutional protections.
A thriving subculture of road officers on the network now competes to see who can seize the most cash and contraband, describing their exploits in the network’s chat rooms and sharing “trophy shots” of money and drugs. Some police advocate highway interdiction as a way of raising revenue for cash-strapped municipalities.
“All of our home towns are sitting on a tax-liberating gold mine,” Deputy Ron Hain of Kane County, Ill., wrote in a self-published book under a pseudonym. Hain is a marketing specialist for Desert Snow, a leading interdiction training firm based in Guthrie, Okla., whose founders also created Black Asphalt...."
You'll learn. That's the republican side of eroding your rights. Two Card Monte anyone?

You see, surprised? It really doesn't matter what the set-up is but what matters is the unexpected punch line.... It's cruel sometimes, I know... that "mastectomy" thingy wasn't meant to be funny, it was meant to wound... Now, everybody can see you got a hard-on for the Ghost... you've made that plain.... But you're leanin' too hard on used material... You need, I don't know?.... A new act or sumthin'? You're comin' across as a really boring one-trick pony...

And look... that clown's so dumb he doesn't even realize he's been shot... That, IN ITSELF, is funny.... Men and women are different too.... A man can always be counted upon to stumble into a trap.... it's what we do... it's what YOU do... Women are sneakier.... let's leave it at that... I think it's because they smell so good?... Not sure?... Whatever it is it's not funny....
