    We’re about to see a Presidential Cabinet where every single member will be a racist, sexist, climate-change denying, adulterous, felonious, lying old white man. Every decision they make will be based on a deadly combination of fear, ignorance, and arrogance. We will be one rash decision away from a nuclear holocaust. All of the platitudes about “giving him a chance” and “working together” ignore the hostile reception that met our last President and the past eight years of obstructionism. All of the advice about organizing for the next election ignores the people who will have their marriages invalidated, who will...

    School officials in Colorado are considering demolishing Columbine High School because of a “morbid fascination” surrounding the 1999 shooting there that left 12 students and a teacher dead, according to reports. In a letter sent to parents Thursday, the superintendent of the Jefferson County School District urged the officials to consider the possibility of razing the high school in Littleton and building a new one nearby, KUSA-TV in Denver reported. Columbine “serves as a point of origin for this contagion of school shootings,” Superintendent Jason Glass wrote. “School shooters refer to and study the Columbine shooting as a macabre source...

    The news – plus barbs from social media trolls and other critics -- may be too much for CNN’s Don Lemon to bear much longer. The host of “CNN Tonight” told an audience in New York City on Thursday that the current “level of toxicity” in society – which he attributed to the Trump presidency – has him questioning whether he’ll still be on the air when the 2020 presidential election rolls around, according to reports. “I don’t know if it’s worth this level of toxicity,” the 53-year-old Lemon said about continuing in his current position, the Daily Beast reported.

    The White House Correspondents Dinner was again a hostile zone for President Trump, underlining it's no mystery why the president skips it. White House Correspondents Association president Olivier Knox of Sirius XM Radio first paid tribute to the group's lawyer, who filed a brief against CNN screamer Jim Acosta being denied his press pass for a few days. "No president should get to pick and choose who covers him!" And then Knox went full Drama Queen: And yet, I still separate my career into the period before February of 2017, and what came afterwards. And that's because February 2017 is...

    Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, maintain they are innocent of the charges against them in the college admissions scandal. "This is not a story. This has become a total circus. They didn't do anything wrong," a source close to the couple told CNN. Giannulli and Loughlin have both pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. Each of the charges is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Some spoke of cash-flow problems in the absence of a paycheck. “I got to...

    On Day 13 of the partial government shutdown, an 11-year-old from North Potomac is on a mission. “My mind was just going through like, how can I help, how can I contribute to my family,” said Bella Berrellez. The fifth grader’s mother works for the FDA and is currently furloughed as a result of the government shutdown. She got her last paycheck on Friday, December 28. “I woke up one morning and went downstairs to eat breakfast and I saw the television was on and I saw it said the government was shutting down,” said Berrellez. “I just want my...

    There are essential and non-essential federal employees. During a shutdown the non-essential do not report to work while the essential MUST or risk termination. Neither group receives pay while the shutdown is in effect. When it's all settled and everyone gets their back pay, the non-essential group received paid days off while the ones that were required to report for duty got shafted.

    New Zealand high school students have demanded examiners ignore that they don’t know what the word “trivial” means, after it appeared in a final-year exam and left many confused. Some students who took the year 13 history exam claimed the “unfamiliar word” was too hard, and the exam should now be marked according to each student’s different understanding and interpretation of “trivial”. The exam asked for students to write an essay on whether they agreed with a quote from Julius Caesar which reads: “Events of importance are the result of trivial causes”. An online petition claims the word trivial “caused...

    According to a report by the New York Times, the Trump administration is again looking at ways to attack the rights of transgender people in the United States. A memo released by the Department of Health and Human Services showed an effort to narrow the definition of gender to male or female, and for that assignation to be unchangeable from birth. “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth,” read the memo. “The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a...

    the Atlantic ^ | 29 May 2018 | Pamela Druckerman
    The midlife crisis was invented in London in 1957. That’s when a 40-year-old Canadian named Elliott Jaques stood before a meeting of the British Psycho-Analytical Society and read aloud from a paper he’d written. Addressing about a hundred attendees, Jaques claimed that people in their mid-30s typically experience a depressive period lasting several years. Jaques (pronounced “Jacks”)—a physician and psychoanalyst—said he’d identified this phenomenon by studying the lives of great artists, in whom it takes an extreme form. In ordinary people symptoms could include religious awakenings, promiscuity, a sudden inability to enjoy life, “hypochondriacal concern over health and appearance,” and...

    CBS ^ | June 2018 | Ashley Welch
    Just days after the tragic death of fashion icon Kate Spade, new government research sheds light on a disturbing increase in suicides in the United States. The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that suicide rates have risen dramatically across most of the country in the past three decades. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and is one of just three leading causes that are on the rise. The rate of suicide in the U.S. rose nearly 30 percent between 1999 and 2016. In 2016, nearly 45,000 Americans age 10 or...

    Twitchy called this the greatest “self-own” in Twitter history and I agree. Yesterday, a group of outraged progressives began tweeting around a photo of two children at a border patrol holding facility sleeping behind a chain link fence. Former Obama speechwriter and current podcast resistance leader Jon Favreau wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “Look at these pictures. This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible.” including Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour: And the man who recently spread the...
