    Marge Swanson, a fat acceptance activist who helped pioneer the concept of thin privilege, is dead from a heart attack. She was 34 years old. Swanson championed the notion that weight and health have no inherent connection. She enjoyed dying her hair bright colors, wearing glasses and dating African American men. “It’s not that I’m thin-phobic,” she once told an audience on a college campus. “It’s just that curvy women have been enslaved and victimized by capitalists for far too long and yeah, I’m upset.” Swanson was born the middle of five children to a working class family in rural...

    Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he is confident that he has laid the groundwork for Democrats to nuke the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees if they win back the Senate in November. Envisioning Hillary Clinton in the White House and Democrats controlling the Senate, Reid warned that if a Senate Republican minority block her Supreme Court nominee, he is confident the party won't hesitate to change the filibuster rules again. Such a move would be an extension of what Reid did in 2013 when he was still majority leader, eliminating filibusters (with a simple majority vote) on...

    OK, that’s a lame post title; maybe I’ll come up with something wittier later.But Caterpillar just announced that it is moving 300 top executives and support staff from Peoria to the Chicago area.  The local Journal Star reports that Caterpillar’s explanation is that this puts them closer to transportation networks: “What we’re really after here in terms of the location is access to flights and the ability to get to markets more quickly,” [CEO Jim] Umpleby said. “One of the reasons we chose Chicago is it allows us that easier global access but it also is close to where we’re...

    The U.S. Army depicted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as an insider threat in a Powerpoint presentation to soldiers on cyber security. A photograph of Mrs. Clinton, who lost the Nov. 8 presidential race, is depicted along with two murderers, two leakers of classified information and one who mishandled secrets. Mrs. Clinton, as secretary of State, exclusively used a home-based server to handle all her government emails, instead of a more secure state.gov address. Some contained highly classified information and the FBI said the server was vulnerable to foreign intrusion. She was not charged. The others depicted: Food Hood...

The image reportedly showed Obama holding the book "The Post-American World," which was written by radical Muslim author Fareed Zakaria. "In the book, Zakaria argues that, thanks to the actions of the United States in spreading liberal democracy across the world, other countries are now competing with the US in terms of economic, industrial, and cultural power," the Wikipedia description read. "While the US continues to dominate in terms of political-military power, other countries such as China and...
