Why fertilize the ground inside the stable?  IMHO it's just too bloody cold to go out to the can; and if the ox and the ass can do it indoors, why shouldn't he?

In case you're wondering, civil forfeiture cases where the Feds are seizing assets are usually captioned so. For the background, here's a reply thread to the tweet from which I pulled the above-linked picture:

Ahh, politics. United, divisive, and smells like the same old shit. Burn it down and start over with a revolutionary new scented candle!

Featuring a subtle bouquet of profits over people, nothing ever changes, well whaddabout, also guns are actually people, and if you don't like it maybe you should move to Canada!  between layers of actual real deal dehydrated horse shit.

Perfect for family gatherings, comment sections, séances, and unprompted conversations in line at the convenience store.

Six-year-old girl arrested at Florida school

The six-year-old girl was restrained with zip ties and escorted to a waiting police car after misbehaving in class....

Here in WIskey we make Florida man look sane. Remember we are the state that gave you Ed Gein & Jeffrey Dahmer. We had a masked man have oral sex with a horse & a woman who took a crap in a box by a register in Kmart. Elmwood is the UFO capital of the world.  We have a werewolf & the infamous Hodag of Rhinelander. And the cops pulled over the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile for a traffic violation a few weeks ago.

The officer's got form for this.

Quote
He then told the school administrators that the youngest person he ever arrested previously was 7 years old, a boy who he had caught stealing at a supermarket. He said he arrested the boy because he “thought it was a joke” while the other children caught in the act had started crying.

Officials have said that Turner also arrested a 6-year-old boy at Nixon Academy the same day as Kaia for misdemeanor battery in an unrelated incident. However, the boy’s arrest was halted by superiors before the child made it through the full arrest process.

Details about the boy’s arrest have not been made public.

The following day, prosecutors dropped the charge against Kaia.

Orlando Police Department officials have said Turner violated agency policy on arresting children younger than 12, which requires officers to get a supervisor’s approval — something Turner did not do. However, his decision was not illegal as Florida currently does not have a minimum age for arrest.

He seems nice...

Quote
Over the course of Turner’s 23-year tenure at OPD prior to retiring last year, he was disciplined seven times for violations of department policy that ranged from unsafe driving to a child-abuse arrest in which he was accused of injuring his 7-year-old son, record released Tuesday showed. He was also accused of sending threatening text messages to his ex-wife in 2009 and racial profiling, records show.
