Haven't received mine, but like, I can't avoid hearing from him daily anyway so I'll take it as part of whatever punishment is being doled out to me for my sins.

And just to clarify - that is the per day restriction.
Hats off to the Downundeners for their stoic sacrifice.

Sensible, actually. I've seen what happens, it's really bad.

Or get rowdy and riot.

OTOH if the Australians DON'T get booze, THEN they'll riot.

Ah, well. Sometimes threads move too fast for me. My reply wasn't particularly clever anyway... but thanks for pointing out how much I missed.

I am not American nor a resident so I will never get one. Has anyone posted a copy on line? I guess those might become collectible items if you all throw them away and we could have a jolly good laugh reading them when this whole shit is over. Stupidity is very funny when it stops being dangerous. Hope that happens soon.

Ditto, although I didn't take the time to tear it up (although I did briefly consider it).

I’ve been getting these mailing from Melania Trump. They say “check enclosed” on the outside envelope. Inside there is a check from Melania Trump payable to the RNC. The idea is that you send your own $45 check back with it and you and Melania will have contributed $90 together. Her signature looks just like his

They use this scam of promising to PERSONALLY match contributions constantly and I doubt they ever put up a dime. But I always take the time to draw dicks and write Trump insults all over the check from Melania, and then I send it back. I figure I will waste as much as their time as possible. I also deface the bar codes on the check and envelope in the hopes it will have to be handled by hand, wasting even more time.

As a friend mentioned, the big problem with this mailing is that it's missing some punctuation.

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S CORONAVIRUS: GUIDELINES FOR AMERICA might be a somewhat more accurate wording.

Me neither, which is terrible because without a postcard from Mr. Trump, I have no idea what to do about this here Coroner Virus thing.

Jesus Non-existant Christ, you people would be bitching if he hadn't sent a postcard saying he doesn't care. The Pit used to be fun. It's devolved so much.

You may want to check the grammar in the quote above. I'm not sure it says what you meant to say.

So, the fact that he doesn't care still hasn't got into that tiny thing between your ears yet?

Being stupid is nothing to be proud of. You and Trump both need to learn that lesson.

One would hope that after his long absence folks would remember that duffer's role on the board was to make Clothahump look like one of the intelligent 'conservatives'.

I haven't gotten a postcard, but yesterday the slimy bastard spammed me! I got an email from the trump make america great again reelection committee. The prez knows my first name and addressed me as such! Reported as spam and "unsubscribed" even though I never subscribed to begin with. Stinking wanker.

It's too bad none of the usual suspects can come in and tell us how we're all wrong and that the nazi-loving rapist Trump is in fact doing a fantastic job.

duffer? This is your chance to 'hit one out of the park'! 'Swing for the wall ... err, fence' and don't let us down!

On the front page of this very site some months back there was a shove poll* with questions like.
Who do you think will keep the economy stronger?
  • Republicans
  • Thieving Democrats
I mean, literally every question the two choices were Republicans and [different pejorative] Democrats. They probably wore out their thesaurus.

Anyway, of course to 'validate' the poll I had to enter an email address. Having my own domain, I created suckmydickdonnie@[my domain].com as a forwarding address. Needless to say I've been getting 'newsletters' describing the latest horrors the heathen Democrats are about unleash on poor, helpless, decent people. I have no doubt I was added to the list automatically without human intervention but I'm hoping that when I inevitably hit the Unsubscribe button some Trumpet has to look at it.

*Much more forceful than a push poll.
