    Can’t say “queer” anymore! Authoritarians at Puffin just made hundreds of changes to Roald Dahl’s books. Here are some examples.By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)February 19, 2023This article from the Telegraph lists a huge numbers of the changes that publisher Puffin has recently made to Roald Dahl’s books.Dahl himself has been dead for decades, so he had nothing to do with these changes. I’m certain that when he wrote his original text, he put a tremendous amount of thought into the words that he chose. I’m guessing that he would probably drop dead from a heart attack if...

    More U.S. adults disapprove than approve of the way President Joe Biden has handled the discovery of classified documents at his home and former office, a new poll shows, but that seems to have had little impact on his overall approval rating. The new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds 41% of Americans say they approve of how Biden is handling his job as president, about the same as the 43% who said that in December. In the new poll, 77% of Democrats approve of how Biden is handling his job, while 91% of Republicans...

    Women have been sharing TikTok videos of themselves doing their makeup from their labor-delivery room hospital beds Some mothers appear to be getting their makeup done before the birth of their children, and the decision has stirred lots of discussion on social media. On TikTok, entering the term "birthing makeup," "labor makeup" and "delivery makeup" yields dozens of viral videos that show women applying full faces of makeup from their hospital beds while they wait for their children to enter the world. Reality TV star and media personality Heidi Montag, 36, went a step above and hired a professional makeup...

    by Becca LondonAll three contestants on "Celebrity Jeopardy!" failed to solve a very simple clue about a midwestern state referenced in a popular movie classic, and the interaction went viral on social media.The video showed contestant Torrey DeVitto, a TV actress and model, pick the category "The Fifty States" for $300. "In 'Field of Dreams' a question is asked, 'Is this heaven?' - No, it's this midwestern state also known as 'the corn state,'" read host Mayim Bialik. DeVitto guessed Wisconsin and was shot down. Candace Parker, a WNBA player, offered Nebraska, which was also wrong. Comedian Patton Oswalt, a...
  • Carville: Dems Should Have Lost 57 Seats – Trump Is Reason We Didn’t

    Democratic consultant and political commentator James Carville said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that former President Donald Trump was the reason Democrats did not lose up to 57 seats in the House of Representatives. Co-host Joe Scarborough asked, “But James, you know, this is just the ebb and flow of politics. Bill Clinton wins big in ’92. Idiots like me get elected in ’94. Obama wins massively in ’08. The Tea Party wins in ’10. Could you explain to people who don’t know politics as well as you how historic last night was?” Carville said, “I’m going try. If you...

    The progressive left, embodied by the Democrat party, has decided to pursue an idiocracy, a government ruled by idiots. The idiots ruling their party leave no room for doubt that this was intentional. Let’s take a look at this gathering of goons and airheads. It is headed, no pun intended, by Joe Biden, the President of the United States, ostensibly the most powerful man in the world. It is apparent to all that Biden is incapable of even the most minor decision. Unless propped up by some unknown drug cocktail and aided by a multitude of teleprompters, Biden is entirely...
  • VP Harris Asked What Her Favorite Part of the Inflation Reduction Act Is. Her Answer Is Typical Kamala.

    So of course, when Vice President Kamala Harris was asked at an event this week to explain her favorite parts of the Inflation Reduction Act, she faltered. "S- I mean, so much, so m- I- one of the things that I'm very excited about is what we have been doing in terms of electric vehicles," Harris decided was her favorite part of the *Inflation* Reduction Act. "And I have a particular fondness, I must tell you, for electric school buses," she gushed. "I love electric school buses," she added to a smattering of applause from the audience. "I really do....

    President Joe Biden called for widespread vote-by-mail and ballot drop boxes across the country, claiming that Republicans were “subverting democracy” with new voting integrity laws to block them. The laws passed in March and signed by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp added stricter ID requirements to obtain an absentee ballot and limited ballot drop boxes. The laws also make it illegal to mass-mail absentee ballots to all voters.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday incorporated the cast of Hamilton as part of the January 6 remembrance, sparking further mockery that the Democrats are “literally” engaging in “theater.” “To begin the conversation, we’re privileged to have a contribution from one of the great creative talents of our time, Lin-Manuel Miranda,” Pelosi said.

    What's up with Kamala Harris on her five-day official visit to France representing the United States of America? Going to a foreign country and mocking the locals in their own accent is no way to make friends or project U.S. influence abroad. In fact, it's not something anyone with any manners at all would do, let alone jet into someone's country to do. This is the best America can do? It's the sort of thing a high school student might do — before he gets his college admissions rescinded. Worse still, it's very bad, given that she's on what's supposedly...

    My team member is a fraction of an inch from going on a ventilator. She has been in the hospital since Monday on Azithromycin and steroids. Hey God complex MDs --- covid is a VIRUS!!! I have spoken to her previous MD, the Hospitalist in ICU, and the Patient Advocate. The hospital is playing 100% defensive medicine. They will not use or even consider any drug or treatment that is not on the NIH "proven" list of treatments and protocols for a virus we are just now encountering and learning about --- including monoclonal antibody infusion. Her previous MD did...

  • Idiocracy: a disturbingly prophetic look at the future of America – and our era of stupidity

    07/18/2021 6:05:40 PM PDT · by algore · 36 replies
    Are we living in the age of stupid? The era of the idiot? The answer of course is yes, with examples of monstrous moronicism everywhere – from climate deniers to the “plandemic” crowd who believe Covid-19 was cooked up in Bill Gates’ basement. On the other hand, human beings have always been illogical creatures. A better question is whether we are, as a species, becoming dumberer. If this is already the era of the idiot, what comes next? An “Idiocracy”, according to film-maker Mike Judge. The Beavis and Butt-head, King of the Hill and Silicon Valley creator’s dystopian 2006 comedy...

    Thanks Obama If we don’t start to take urgent action to prevent the worst impacts of climate change today, then we may experience the end of our species within a century, former President Barack Obama said in a new interview. Obama made the argument in a wide-ranging chat, on The New York Times‘ podcast The Ezra Klein Show, that also broached partisan politics, racial justice, the impacts of his presidency, and even UFOs. Specifically, Klein asked Obama what he thought we, as a society, would be judged the most harshly for in the year 2121, making the topic of climate...

    Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) touted on Thursday the need for Congress to pass voting rights legislation as a number of Republican-run states, including Georgia, eye restrictions to the ballot box. “It is almost impossible to overstate how important this really is. We are at an inflection point. This is a moral moment in America, a defining moment in our history. Voting rights is not just one issue alongside other issues. It is about who we say we are, it is about our covenant with one another as an American people,” he said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “And so we’ve got...
  • Company produces methane-capturing face mask for cows

    Device is meant to help with global warming. A sustainable agriculture company has manufactured a device they say will help curb global warming by neutralizing methane exhaled by cows. Zelp, a company based in London, says that its device can help contribute to a "strong reduction in the global warming potential of methane." The mask, which is strapped to the snouts of cows, "neutralises methane exhaled in real time," the company claims. The device also has digital monitoring technologies such as geolocation and emission monitoring capabilities. Activists have warned that cows are significant contributors to global warming due to their...
  • Straight Fire: Collins Blasts 'False, Sexist, Insulting' Attacks from Dem Group Run By Ex-Republicans

    A recent attack, launched by a disreputable leftist attack group run by former Republican operatives, targeted Maine Senator Susan Collins. It labeled her a "Trump stooge," called her a "fraud" of an independent, and asserted that she's "controlled" by the president and Mitch McConnell. This organization supposedly began as a "Never Trump" project, but has morphed into a "Never Republican" outfit aiming to help ensure total Democratic control of government. In no way, shape, or form is it functionally "conservative," as many in the media insist on labeling it. It's a Democratic group, promoting Democratic candidates, in order to install...

    Hmmm, I wonder what could possibly be going on in Oregon with respect to this spike in COVID cases? And Washington? Don’t you dare suggest that the spread is due to peaceful protests and riots. They’re all wearing masks. Just look at that masked up Wall of Mothers Once you brush all the superfluous details away what strikes me most about the  current spate of riots/not riots occurring in our cities is the fact that our police are behaving just like Europe’s gendarmes have been for years – almost decades -  now. Which is to say they’re just there to...

    A resident of Forest, Va. has assembled a list of over 1,200 snitches who reported their neighbors for potential violations of the state’s COVID-19 lockdown. Isaiah Knight compiled the list after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which gave him the name of people who participated in the Soviet-style snitching campaign against their fellow man. He received information from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) that 1,293 people made complaints to authorities. “The short answer is I wanted to see how many people would rat out Anne Frank. And it’s essentially that,” Knight said...“What you see on this...
