Motel 6 apparently colluding with the American Gestapo.

Giving you away like motel matches – Balloon Juice

Quote:
The front-desk clerk told him that he needed to show identification in order to reserve a room. Rodriguez-Juarez handed over the only thing he had — a Mexican voter ID card.

Six hours later, he was lying on the bed, watching TV, when he heard a knock at the door.

He opened it. Three agents from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement were waiting for him.

[…]

A Phoenix New Times review of court records found that between February and August, ICE agents made at least 20 arrests at Motel 6s, showing up roughly every two weeks.
The company is apparently claiming this was a local management policy at a few locations and has since been discontinued, but their mealy-mouthed response (see the BJ comments) isn't exactly confidence-inspiring.

This is my conviction, that I am an innocent man. Though you say I'm unkind, I'm being as nice as I can.

sean. on Twitter: "New survey: 48% of Trump voters agree that, "America must protect and preserve its White European heritage." https://t.co/pQrldtuVWk"

I think the survey author simply paraphrased the Fourteen Words. Half of Trump voters agreed with it. But how dare you call them white supremacists.

(Clinton was basically exactly right with her "deplorables" speech - she even said half of them went in the basket.)

ESPN's account of its treatment of Hill is pretty suspect, by the way:

(Apparently the reason he's being suspended rather than fired is procedural: it's evidently required to have a vote to fire him. If the vote doesn't end up firing him, this story will end up being even more enraging.)

Also, this:

WATCH: St Louis Driver Runs Over Anti-Police Brutality Protestors

Thankfully, it doesn't seem like anyone was hurt. Still, both sides!

There’s more irony points to be had if you write a paragraph.

I didn't know who Gregg Popovich was, I had to look him up. He is the coach of the San Antonio Spurs (makes sense considering the back ground :p). Has some great lines here:
