Katy Perry is a complete idiot. She responded to the Manchester attack carried out by a terrorist who was able to exploit open borders....... by calling for more open borders
Yeah it’s easy to call for “no borders” when YOU live inside the secluded border of an 18 million dollar mansion, isn’t it Katie?
the rest of us down here in the real world actually have to live with the consequences of open borders, the very kind of open borders that let the Manchester bomber go to Libya and Syria for ISIS terror training and then slip back into the UK
We’re not worth two hundred and eighty million dollars we can’t travel around in chauffeured luxury vehicles and private jets.
We’re not the so frigging arrogant elitists and out of touch that our staff aren’t even allowed to talk to us.
After the u.s. election Perry re-styled herself as an icon of the “anti-Trump resistance” embracing her role as an ambassador of “woke pop”
this is the same clown who called for a “revolution” after Hillary lost.
Hey Katy you’re not Che Guevara, you’re a dumb bimbo who dresses up like a slut and sings about popsicles.
Don’t you just yearn for the days when celebrities occasionally told the truth about the world, rather than this sterile virtue signaling where they all just say exactly the same thing?
The only celebrity with the balls to tell the truth is Manchester’s own Morrissey
Who blamed mass immigration and political correctness for what happened this week and for that he was smeared as a “far-right racist”
Well he’s been proven completely correct.
The bomber was acting suspiciously for months loudly chanting Arabic prayers in the street showing sympathies for Isis at his local mosque the neighbors did nothing they didn’t report it - no doubt because they feared they’d be labeled as far right racists.
Listen, leftist idiots like Katy Perry have no argument when it comes to open borders and Islamic immigration.
That’s why they have to use Muslims as rhetorical human shields, so when you attack their argument they can claim you’re attacking Muslims, that’s why they deify Islam and Islamism because if you remove that human shield from the equation their argument vanishes.
I’m sick of Katy Perry and all the other celebrities with their lame virtue signaling you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.
Spewing empty platitudes about ‘uniting, loving each other’ doesn’t accomplish anything.
It’s just a coping mechanism so people can hide from the fact that they’re completely powerless in the face of evil
It would be pretty harmless but many of the celebrities doing this are the same ones who exploit people’s grief and emotion to shout down people like me as 'racist’ for trying to politically push for policies that will genuinely reduce the risk of terrorism.
Reduce the risk of little girls being maimed and mutilated that’s why this needs to be called out and that’s why Katy Perry needs to
Okay I just remembered another one. So on Tuesday this woman comes in with her son, they buy a few things, it’s whatever. Her total is two dollars and change, she adds a pack of cigarettes, eight dollars and change. Her son (about five or six) sees the fidget spinners on the counter. He asks for one and she says no. She asks again and she says “Tomorrow. I get paid tomorrow.” She pulls out a HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL to pay for her shit. I groan inwardly but break it since I know I haven’t safe dropped in a while and do indeed have four twenties. The kid keeps whining about the spinner and she gets angrier at him. I’m kinda silent cause I’ve always been afraid of other people’s parents. As she’s leaving, kid refuses to leave the store and she just. WALKS OUT WITHOUT HIM. He’s still like right in front of my till, kinda hiding behind a post, and I’m now freaking out like, did she just abandon her kid right in front of me? Is she going to make him walk home by himself? No, she comes back a few minutes later, tells him “tomorrow” again, and they leave. First of all, lady, you do not do that shit. Second, if you’re paying for eight dollars of stuff with a hundred dollar bill, you definitely have the money to buy your kid a seven dollar spinner. I wish I’d told her they likely wouldn’t be there the next day, as there were only two left in the first place.
TalesFromTheFrontDesk: Respect the housekeepers please
I am about to enter my 13th hour of work in the past 24. It’s graduation weekend for a few colleges in my area so we are pretty full. Besides racist comments being made to guests by delivery drivers and the diffusion of a laundry staff mutiny, it has been (relatively) uneventful. I can deal with this
What’s really bothering me though is a guest I just interacted with. He left several HUNDRED dollars as a tip for housekeeping. Why? Because he left expensive items in his room and fully expected this things to be stolen. I don’t know about you all, but I have so much respect for our housekeepers. They work so hard and frankly, their job sucks. I see where the guest was coming from and he’s being very generous but it seems insulting to our staff that he would expect his stuff to be stolen.
Anyway, I’m super happy for whichever housekeeper cleaned his room. They deserve it.
my grandma is one of those working class people with enough disposable income to spend on things such as gardening and lawn upkeep and jeweled glass frames of hundreds of dollars, and a perpetual surplus of food but according to her we are ‘low money’ that she must be a pennypincher
she’s also one of those working class people who strives to emulate the affluent suburban image, so she wants an immaculately kept lawn and other ways to feel like she has money, and basically her household is the type that requires more upkeep than a household actually deserves from a practical standpoint
By the way: Billy McFarland, the generic stock image of venture capitalist bro who launched Fyre Festival, is for sure a contender for 2017′s Asshole Of The Year Award. Will he join the ranks of Martin Shkreli, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and 2016 itself? Perhaps!
-At precisely eight o'clock, just as we were opening, a man darted into the store, decked out in board shorts, a worn graphic tee, and pristine latex gloves. After a few minutes walking the store, he brought forward an armful of household essentials and asked me to wait as he quickly picked up one last item from the front end. I looked on as he walked to the card wall, scooped an entire rack of Yu-Gi-Oh cards up in his arm, and purchased the twenty dollars of cleaning supplies and over one hundred dollars of trading cards with infallible glee.
-A woman purchased a large gift bag with an equally-large package of toilet paper. This is the type of ally I need in my life.
-A dog in a cart looked me dead in the eye and bared their teeth. This intimidation tactic would have struck terror into my very core, were it not for the pup’s ferocity being undermined by its fun-sized nature.
-A fact I have always presumed to be true has been proven as such today. No sight is more fear-inspiring than a ragtag team of twenty teenage jocks storming your storefront with neither care nor supervision.
-I heard a toddler shouting the French word, “Merde!” repeatedly as he was pushed through the store. His parents did not know, but I knew, and he knew that I knew, and I knew that he knew that I knew, and that was enough for him.
-A woman complained to me at great length about her disappointment in a local hotel’s policy. After she was pressed for more details by means of a polite and silent nod from me, she explained that she and her family had been having a picnic and photoshoot on their front lawn and were asked to leave once it was determined that they were not actually staying at the hotel. A pay-to-stay establishment not allowing free use of their premises made little sense to this woman, as this situation as a whole did to me.
okay @marywisdom I now need a fic of Leonard Snart going to the WestAllen wedding.
Technically, he and Mick and Lisa weren’t invited, but that doesn’t matter, he forged an invitation and said that Barry’s third-removed cousin couldn’t make it, so he told them to go and have fun
Barry pulls Len aside and begs him not to ruin the wedding and Len is so offended
“As if I would ruin Iris’ special day, Barry. What kind of person do you think I am?”
Len and Mick in matching tuxes with little fire and ice lapel pins, Lisa in a gorgeous gold dress with matching jewelry
Lisa takes so many pictures at this wedding, so many. Of the bride and groom, the families, the reception, the cake (the cake has a glamor shot)
Also, she winked at Cisco from where he was standing with the grooms and there’s a great picture of him blushing.
She sat next to him during the reception
They danced together
Len and Mick are food snobs, you can’t tell me otherwise, especially Mick, and they manage to smuggle out three trays of hors d’oeuvres for later because that catering was damn good.
also they each got an extra piece of cake
“good job on finally tying the knot,” mick says, frosting in his teeth as he slaps Barry on the shoulder.
LEONARD SNART GIVES A TOAST TO BARRY AND IRIS
everyone’s slightly nervous and on edge because oh god
but it’s such a - nice - speech?
he mentions how Iris is the perfect person to balance out Barry, how she doesn’t take any shit and always finds a way to get things done regardless of the pressure on her head.
and that Barry is a good person and it rubs off on you whenever you spend too much time around him (”look at me,” he jokes) and that he wishes nothing but the best for both of them
and just when everyone starts tearing up he narrows his eyes and sends Barry a sneaky glare
“You better not screw this up, Barry, I’m only giving you one warning, or you’ll get frostbite in places where you really don’t want it. Iris, you call me if he messes up. Mazel tov.”
When Barry and Iris open wedding gifts later, they find an envelope with literally four thousand dollars in unmarked, non sequential hundred dollar bills with the note “don’t spend it all in one place ;)”
“p.s. don’t bother dusting for prints ;)”
Lisa gave Iris a beautiful gold necklace that has a huge amber crystal pendant. Iris’s thank-you note thanked her for the gift and let her know that she was sorry she had to return it to the museum.
Also homeownership is wildly overhyped as an idea in America. It constitutes massive amounts of land and resource waste, and mortgages are just a way to get people who are financially secure enough to avoid paying rent to do so anyways. Yet the government still spends over a hundred billion dollars every year subsidizing it through the tax code because of pressure from the construction, real estate, and finance lobbies and voter support derived from the nostalgic normative ideal of “the American Dream”
