Clearly he meant schwifty but for some reason had autocorrect on.
If she had shown disapproval or even only passive support for her husband you might have some kind of point. She actively worked to crush and discredit the women claiming rape, which means she accepts culpability for her husbands actions.
My public position is that I'm for women's rights. My private position is that I will ruthlessly crush anything that threatens my political power, even multiple accusations of rape by my husband from people willing to identify themselves.
The big 5 TradPub sci-fi/fantasy sector has been floundering pretty hard the last few years. It doesn't help that they're complete morons about their e-book policies. Including indie and small o mid publishers and the outlook is much better. Not great
When the Nebulas, an award by sci fi authors for excellence(unlike the Hugos) in the field of Sci-Fi/Fantasy gives the award to a story like "If you were a dinosaur my love" there's a problem with SJW infiltration. It's not sci-fi, it's not fantasy, and since it's nothing but someone's personal twisted revenge porn they're daydreaming about with no effect on the real world it doesn't even qualify as speculative fiction. Even that idiotic rain story from the following year was at least spec fic.
That's not entirely true. While the SJW infiltration that started in the late noughts certainly didn't help matters, the Hugos had been struggling for relevancy as an award since the late 80's. This is because they basically shun YA Sci-fi and the thought of bringing in new readers. The average age at Worldcon has to hover at least between 40 and 50 if not higher.
It's a comedy/drama about a pretentious pseudo-intellectual snob. The line is blurred.
You mean a completely anonymous lawsuit which has been refiled twice and never served so as to avoid legal penalties on the part of the accusers which just happens to pop up when Trump seems to be seriously in the running for president?
You might want to pull you head out of Obama's ass. I realize you like the taste of his prostate, but that's no excuse.
Second, Wide Receiver, though flawed, was more of a gun-tracing operation than a gun-walking program. Gun-tracing involves putting specific safeguards in place to track firearms, such as RFID chips perhaps with video or aerial surveillance. Gun-walking is what happened in Fast and Furious, where ATF agents sold thousands of guns without a reliable way to recover them, apparently just hoping for the best.
Some of the guns from Wide Receiver were implanted with RFID chips and were actively tracked electronically. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in Phoenix also implemented aerial surveillance tactics in an attempt to follow the weapons.
However, problems reportedly arose due to poorly implanted RFID chips which were forced into the guns, bending the antennas and decreasing their effectiveness. Cartels and straw purchasers also eventually came up with creative ways to shake tracking maneuvers and overhead surveillance, such as driving in loops for hours until surveillance planes had to refuel.
Those in charge of Fast and Furious took no similar steps to strengthen their chances of recovering walked guns other than recording the serial numbers before watching them disappear in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.
In fact, ATF agents involved in Fast and Furious have previously testified that they were ordered to stand down and not track the weapons even when interdiction was possible and instead “took notes” and let the guns walk across the Mexico border. Watch some of ATF whistleblower John Dodson’s Congressional testimony:
You are, however, correct that most of the guns were not recovered. Which is exactly why it was shut down. They tried something, it failed miserably, they stopped.
The Bush era program, Operation Wide Receiver was a quarter the size in scope, made actual attempts to track the guns with tracking devices, and was shutdown explicitly because it failed miserably.
*cough*bullshit*cough* The stated purpose of the program was to track the guns however no attempt was made to do so. Moreover, it was a shittier, greatly expanded version of a Bush program that was explicitly shut down because it didn't work. It's not like the Obama administration was releasing faulty mexican crime gun statistics at the same time this program was going on or anything.

He's mocking both Hillary and Trump. Hillary from when she was playing clueless old lady and 'joked' about wiping her server with a cloth when accused of deleting emails(which of course later turned out to be true), and Trump from thinking Bleachbit was a chemical that destroys hard drives.
*blinks* Just out of curiosity, how much do you think authors get paid by their publishers? Cause the answer is, barring a damn few TradPubs, the answer is jack and shit unless you are a superstar. Even then the way they count sales is fucking asinine.
