Trump has a special talent for unifying people against him. What was a divisive form of protest has exploded in popularity just from him weighing in on it baseball, football, players, people singing the anthem, etc all participating in civil protest. It's a bit inspiring

And the people who do come out against it tend to make the most repugnant arguments. I just unfollowed my old boss when she linked a Breitbart meme relating to the protest.

I think my favorite counter argument is "saying the players are protesting the flag is like saying Rosa Parks was protesting public transportation".

Bah, since I've been 7 years old it's been pretty transparent that"Fiscal Conservatism" meant "deficits are bad when they are paying to keep brown and poor people from starving and dying of disease but totally don't matter when they let bankers buy bigger yachts"

At least 50 killed and 200 injured in mass shooting at a concert in Las Vegas. The news is still breaking at this point and many details are unknown.

Edit: some more details

  • More than 50 dead
  • Over 400 rushed to hospital because of injuries from shooting and ensuing stampede
  • Shooter identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock
  • Shots lasted for 10-15 minutes
  • Based on audio of gun fire, the shooter likely used a belt-fed automatic weapon


Trump calls attack "pure evil", but, of course,
refrains from using the 'T' word

California moves its 2020 primary up from June to March, putting it on "Super Tuesday". The goal is to give the state a larger say in the primaries.

Apparently someone told the cops in 2008 that Lanza had an assault rifle and planned to shoot up the school in Sandy Hook.

Then the police said "yeah but the guns technically belong to his mom, so there' no threat since he doesn't have access to them, let's ignore this."

Then 4 years later, he took one of the guns, shot his mom, and shot up the school.

On the one hand, she's clearly lying about everything else of her predictions or whatever now to sell her books.

On the other hand, I truly want to believe she recommended acupuncture to someone she thought was sick, because then I can make fun or her more.

The source for it is apparently her own book, so even if it is a lie, she still thinks it portrays her in a positive light, and that by itself is worthy of ridicule.

Sounds like a win-win to me.

Out of touch person, from the Left: "You should try homeopathy for the cancer!"

Out of touch person, from the Right: "Terrorists are being shipped to this country by the thousands! We need to close our borders, now!"

Sorry about that. I posted it from my phone, which makes going back and forth between tabs, copy-pasting, and typing difficult.

"Mass shootings are a mental health issue," says man who expanded access to guns for the mentally ill and is seeking cuts to funding for mental health.

What is she trying to accomplish? If she's trying to save herself, she's failing miserably.
