Since I have been seeing it used a lot on Facebook lately, I've created a page for the argument, don't like it,
don't do it.
- Republican Governor Kay Ivey, who signed into law the Alabama abortion ban, explains how pro-life she is while presiding over her
seventh execution. Republicans are so damned pro-life, if you aren't pro-life,
they'll kill you, and if they can't kill you, they'll neglect your
children until they die too. And, if you hadn't guessed who is forcing their beliefs on the
women of Alabama, The Friendly Atheist checked out all of the 25 old white men, and, as expected,
they're all Christians. No wonder they know almost
nothing about sex.
- To give you an idea of the caliber of the men Trump is choosing for federal judges, several of them are refusing to comment on Brown v. Board of Education, the US Supreme Court case that ended racial
segregation is public schools. These men actually are afraid to give their opinions on racial segregation, which should give you an idea of
what they believe!
- The USA can't seem to send rapists to prison, but we do give them
custody of the children they fathered from raping women.
- Trump is so anti-immigrant, he wants to dump 1,000 of them every month into Florida. His belief is that the counties can't handle such a large influx of desperate people and it will have a negative impact on
their economies. While this is true, think about how utterly vile that is. He's using human beings who are absolutely destitute as a punishment to people who
care for destitute people. Of course, as is typical for Trump,
he isn't taking into account any long-term affects. All of those immigrants are going to have children, all of whom will become US citizens. Trump is inadvertently pushing the demographics of Florida further
from where he wants it to be (i.e., all white).
- Maybe Democrats would do better to stop talking about who is "electable" (read: conservative white men) and talk about the people Democrats actually
want to elect?
- Trump broke yet another Federal promise, this time by cutting the funding of California's high-speed rail project, because Trump likes to punish people for disagreeing with his ridiculous (and frequently
racist) views. The state now has a lot of partially built railways they will either leave to deteriorate or have to
fund on their own.
- Just to be clear, Trump is lying about his failing trade war.
Tracie Harris shares some of the letters her Atheist group has received from people stuck in abusive religious families.
Why do drugs cost so much more in the USA compared to every other country in the world? It's complicated, but the short answer is, our capitalistic approach to medicine is paying for all of the development of
drugs in the hope we can gouge the sick. Other countries buy their drugs in bulk, so they can sell them cheaper, and also use our safety data to offset the development costs. If we adopted their system, other
nations would have to pay their fair share, and we would have cheaper drugs.

I've added a page for the Weezer song, My Name Is Jonas.
- In defiance to Alabama's all-white all-male criminalization of abortion for religious reasons (Republican Governor Kay Ivey said abortion must be banned because fetuses are a gift from her god.), the three
remaining clinics in the state vow to remain open even it means both doctor and patient will be
- Trump continues to be soft on white crime. His latest pardons include Patrick Nolan who plead guilty to corruption (but is a Republican), and Conrad Black was found guilty of robbing a lot of people and
obstructing justice, but wrote a book praising Trump.
- Republicans are refusing to grant citizenship to the children of American same-sex couples because they claim their children are born
"out of wedlock."
- Trump is still trying to downplay his failing trade war.
- Republican Kim LaSata makes her views on abortion clear, it should be criminalized and it should be painful, not because its unethical, but because it goes against how LaSata interprets her religion. She
goes on to explain how all pregnant women should let her god deliver their
- Republican, and Christian leader, Jim Beck, has just been indicted on 38 counts of fraud and money laundering regarding the
theft of state funds.
- Republican Ted Cruz is so spineless, he even caved to Trump's ridiculous Space Force idea. And, to back up his nonsense, he invented
fictional space pirates.

- One of Trump's many failures was his inability to repeal Obamacare, however, this isn't stopping his administration from removing it as much as possible from government web sites in the hope that people
will forget about it.
- Trump gets pretty much everything wrong about tariffs, so here's what his tariffs are
actually doing. Interestingly, Trump's trade war (that he doesn't want anyone calling a trade war) is causing so much harm to the US that even
Republicans are beginning to criticize him, but they're still too spineless to actually do anything about it.
- Alabama just passed an unconstitutional law banning nearly every form of abortion in their state. The law was ratified by 25 people who voted in favor of the bill. Of the 25, 25 are white, 25 are old, and
25 are men.
- Christian preacher Terry Holcomb told the people who pointed out his violation of the first amendment to go kill themselves and because of that, Fox host Todd Starnes said
he likes him.
- Trump's lawyer openly admitted he was traveling to Ukraine to try and find dirt on Trump's political rivals.
- Trump aide, and professional bigot, Sebastian Gorka lashes out at an Authur cartoon that features a same-sex wedding claiming it is a "war on [American] culture," which is interesting considering he's not
American, and same-sex marriage is both legal and protected by the US Constitution. Maybe showing a wedding ceremony that happens literally every day in American is a war on his backward pathetic culture, but
certainly not on America's.
- Trigger-happy conservatives will tell you that school shootings will stop simply by giving teachers guns, but all that seems to do is make the teachers
the school shooters.
Having more women in Congress wouldn't make the country more fair, but it would make the country more fairly represented.

- Even after it was voted down, Republicans still can't stop lying about the Green New Deal, which has ironically given it more life. So, why not learn about
what it actually is.
- The history of how America's presidential con man lied his way onto the Forbes list, despite
losing more money than any other American.
- Kirstjen Nielsen, former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, was fired by Trump, and we're just learning why. Turns out, like most Trump appointees, she was evil, manipulative, and backhanded,
but she wasn't quite evil enough to perform a mass incarceration of entire families without evidence of crime, which is what Trump
demanded she do.

Which is worse? Christian Pastor David Richards of Tennessee repeatedly raping his 14-year-old daughter over a span of two years, the pastor's congregation who refused to believe their preacher was a rapist
even after his semen was found on his daughter's bed frame, or Judge Steven Sword who gave him an extremely lenient sentence because, as Judge Sword put it, the rapist is a
"good Christian man."

- As was expected, China has raised tariffs on US products in response to Trump's
unprovoked aggression. This will hurt American and Chinese
consumers and businesses, but, since Trump has bankrupted the US government, will give them much needed funds.
- The nation needs to know if secretly working with a hostile foreign power to undermine a US election (exactly what Don Jr tried to do) is a crime. Any patriotic American would say yes, but Republicans tend
to care more about their party than the country, so they're trying to prevent even discussing whether it's a crime.
- There are a lot of Democrat presidential hopefuls, but the press seems to be focusing mostly on the men.
- Khalifa Haftar invaded Tripoli and left 300 dead, and over 1,000 more wounded. The United Nations has identified Haftar as a Libyan warlord who must be stopped, but, after being easily persuaded by Saudi
Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Trump identified Haftar as a freedom fighter who is
- White supremacists in Poland used to love Trump's pro-white pro-nationalist agenda, but when he suggested Poland should have to pay reparations to Jews, they got their
knickers in a bind.
- Trump can't even stop lying about who gets to see the Lincoln bedroom.
- After Tennessee Judge, Republican Jim Lammey, posted on Facebook that Jews need to "get the fuck over the Holocaust," he claimed he wasn't racist, and makes nothing but

A homophobic police officer arrested a man for having a sticker on his truck which reads, "I eat ass," saying the sticker was "derogatory." When the driver asked the officer, "how is it derogatory?" the
officer complained that he would be furious if one of his children saw the sticker and he might have to teach his kids about gay sex. The driver refused to remove the sticker citing it was his first amendment
right to display it (which courts have ruled for decades to be the case), but the officer, clearly ignorant of the law, arrested him anyway. Naturally, the driver was released without charge, and is now
pursuing legal avenues to sue the sheriff's office for wrongful arrest.
Are human embryos more like tumors or parasites? A better question is are anti-abortion Christian apologists more like tumors or parasites? Both.

- Trump probably lost more money than anyone else in the US, during the
late 1980s, but a long series of cheating and lying allowed him to get out of debt. He tries to brush off his billion dollar loss as cheating the US
system, but the problem with this argument, is it means he is actually the worst welfare queen in the world.
- Tariffs are raised yet again. China will go tit-for-tat, and all our consumer good will increase in price. Trump has succeeded once again in
hurting the US economy.
- Under the guise of anti-discrimination, Texas Republicans are banning abortion for inviable fetuses. Even if a fetus has an abnormality where it doesn't have lungs, this new law would make it a crime for
both the woman and the doctor to perform an abortion. It doesn't matter that the fetus will die a horrible death shortly after birth, Texas women will be forced to carry it until term and give birth to their
dead baby, because Jesus. Meanwhile Ohio Republicans are reclassifying birth control as
abortion and demanding that potentially fatal ectopic pregnancies that must be aborted can be
fixed by magic.
- Donald Trump Jr. tried to work with the Russian government to help his father become president, however, as stupid as he is, he got scammed and his failure was made public. Naturally, when Republicans were
in charge of Congress, they refused to even consider that he broke the law, but, now that Democrats have some clout, they're investigating whether it should be a crime for Americans to work with foreign powers
to steal elections, but Republicans continue to obstruct.
- After Trump called for an immediate and reckless withdrawal of the US military from Syria, without even discussing it with our allies in the area, the head of the Department of Defense resigned in disgust.
This left Trump with yet another department without a leader, so he randomly picked Patrick M.

Delta Airlines ran a union smear campaign in order to try and convince their workers not to band together for higher wages and safer working conditions. Their brilliant argument was to tell their workers, if

as well as they hoped.

I added a page for the Frank Turner album, Love Ire & Song.
- The US government is structured with three main branches so that no one branch can ever have too much power and run amok. During the Trump administration, the executive branch, where Trump sits, has
routinely been over-stepping its authority and trying to do things that are criminal. Thanks to our three-branch system, the other two branches have successfully stopped Trump from becoming the King of the
US, and Trump does not like this one bit. So, the White House's most recent power grab is to target the judicial branch of government and say that judges shouldn't be allowed to
rule against presidential decrees.
- At one of his
Klan rallies, Trump asked how the USA could stop immigration and one of his followers shouted "shoot them!" To which Trump
smiled and chuckled.
- The White House is tightening its rules on how press passes are given out, effectively banning many
- Even if what they're doing isn't the legal definition of obstruction of justice, Republicans are literally obstructing justice.
- Remember when Trump patted himself on the back for stopping the missile tests in North Korea? Just like with every promise he's ever made, he
didn't follow through.
- Republican Jonathan Stickland told Dr. Peter Hotez, who is professor of infectious disease at Baylor College of Medicine, that vaccines are "sorcery" and only his god
can control illnesses.
- Another school shooting. Another will happen again shortly. Republicans will prevent us from making any progress
toward stopping them.
- Women are still not treated equally under the US Constitution because several hold-out states don't want it. Naturally, those hold-out states are
- Trump is causing long-term damage to the US economy with his tariff war.

Richard Carrier is re-suing, after losing his previous lawsuits, the people who kicked him out of their groups because of of sexual harassment accusations. Personally, I don't think these lawsuits are

|What is the color of justice?|
I added a page for the religious "gotcha" question, why is there something instead of
- Trump has just claimed that his privilege of being president should overrule Congress's ability to
investigate his crimes.
- The New York Times got a hold of more of Trump's past tax returns from 1985-1994. They show that he went 8 years without paying a single cent in taxes, not because his accountants discovered a loophole to
cheat the IRS, but because during that time he lost $1,170,000,000!
- Trump continues to drive more experts out of the US government because his policies are so anti-science the experts can't ethically be a part of this regime anymore. Even after we're done with Trump and we
get a sane person in the White House, we'll still have to deal with a government that has been crippled by abuse
for years to come.
- For every new steel worker job created or saved in America, Trump's tariff war is costing Americans $900,000. This is costing the steel industry $11,500,000,000 a year more than before Trump's tariff, a
price that must be passed onto the consumers. No wonder Trump is driving so many jobs out
of the country.
- Jared Kushner, the White House advisor whose many qualifications include son-in-law, said during a pro-Israel talk that Palestine has received more aid than any other group in history. Except that he was
lying. In fact, Israel has received far more aid.
- The US antivaxxer movement is partially the fault of our inability to teach basic physiology and part Russian trolls. It doesn't help that our president is
also a Russian troll.
- Trump continues to obstruct the FBI even after their investigation is complete.
- Georgia Republicans have just criminalized abortion to the point where women who have them will receive a
life sentence in prison.
- Democrats successfully created a decent compromise to stop Iran from enriching uranium, but Trump's incompetent diplomacy has caused them to
go at it again.
- One of Trump's biggest cheerleaders is the self-professed moral leader Jerry Falwell, Jr. Falwell passes extreme judgment on the Christian failings of Democrats, but has nothing but praise for the the
guy who cheats on all his wives, never goes to church, and constantly lies, cheats, and steals. Why is Falwell such a fan? Is it that Trump hates all the same people that Falwell hates, or is it because Falwell
and Trump share a sleazy lawyer who wasn't bery good at hiding incriminating photos of
both of them?
- Sandra Bland, a black woman who Texas police said killed herself in prison because she was so depressed over her traffic violation of failing to signal, recorded the officer who arrested her, and it's

- 400 former department of justice prosecutors have signed on to an open letter saying the FBI had more than enough evidence to charge Trump with obstruction of Justice
on multiple accounts.
- Trump just pardoned Michael Behenna, a man convicted of murder.
- Criminals of a feather obstruct together. Corrupt Republican Steve Mnuchin refuses to release
Trump's tax returns to Congress. Also, the White
House is ordering Don McGahn not to comply with congressional subpoenas of the documents where Trump tried to convince McGahn to
fire FBI director Robert Mueller!
- White supremacists (Trump's great people) used a drone to drop over Sacramento California hundreds of
- Trump doesn't like how all his criminal scandals were investigated, so he suggested getting an additional two years of his presidency. Sure, that would be a violation of the US Constitution, but he really
thinks he's above the highest law in the nation. Well, if his first two years don't count, here is a list of all the vile things Trump did in his first two years that would
have to be revoked.
- William Barr continues to hide the truth from America, just more obstruction from
- Republican Theresa Kenerly, Mayor of a Georgia town, threw away the city administrator job application of a man because he was black. One of the town's board members, Republican Jim Cleveland, defended the
Mayor Kenerly saying that Christianity teaches that blacks and whites should be kept separate. Georgia isn't just extremely racist, it's the kind of place where extremely racist people
get political power.
- Thanks to pollution, climate change, and habitat loss, we're currently on the path to pushing over 1,000,000 species to extinction. The
Republican response to this terrifying prospect is to congratulate our destruction by claiming it will create
new trade opportunities.
- Trump honors a fellow adulterer with Medal of Freedom because he's also

- Not wanting it to reflect on his election, Trump continues to downplay US cyber-security, but that's not great news when the country really is being constantly attacked, even to the point of having our
power grids shut down.
- Trump's pick for the Federal Reserve, Stephen Moore joins Herman Cain on the cutting room floor, as years of misogyny and racism
finally caught up with him.
- Russia is convincing Americans that climate change isn't real, both through a huge Internet misinformation campaign, and through their puppet president, Donald Trump. And, at the same time they're doing

I've added a page for the Queen song, In the Lap of the Gods… Revisited.
- Trump knew Republican William Barr was his savior when Barr said that presidents should be above the law, and Barr did not disappoint. In addition to lying and saying the Muller report exonerated Trump when
it explicitly didn't, Barr has gone on to defend his lie in front of Congress, and now
refuses to answer further questions. Luckily, Annie Donaldson kept notes of many White House meetings which provided the FBI with a lot of evidence of
Trump repeatedly trying to obstruct justice. Now, she's probably going to be part of the congressional hearing.
- The US Navy has been begging for more money to upgrade its cyber-security system. This is important because a lot of the wars are no longer being fought with soldiers with guns, but with hackers with
computers. Trump may have talked big about cyber-security, but a large part of his presidency exists because of the US's terrible cyber-security, so instead, he took the money the Navy wanted for security and
spent it on another aircraft carrier they didn't ask for and don't want.
- Health care discrimination has come to law because of Republicans. Now, Jehovah's Witness doctors are legally protected to refuse to give you a blood transfusion, Catholic pharmacists can refuse to fill
your prescriptions, and Christian Scientists can refuse to give you any treatment of any kind.
- Trump continues to claim he repealed the Johnson Amendment which makes it a crime for non-profit institutions to endorse political candidates. Of course, like nearly everything Trump says,
this too is a lie.
- Trump's pick for the Federal Reserve, Stephen Moore, has a long history of saying extremely hateful things about women, and even cheating on his wife while claiming that family and fidelity is paramount,
but now we're learning that he's also very fond of racist jokes.
- In 2010, a BP oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico killing all the workers and flooding the Gulf with crude oil, causing the worst offshore oil disaster in US history. New regulatory rules were put in
place in order to prevent a similar disaster, so, naturally, Trump has
eliminated those regulations, making

- William Barr's testimony is yet another reason for Republican shame. It started with Lindsey Graham lying for Trump and then rehashing conspiracy theories surrounding
Hillary Clinton (seriously). We also learned that Robert Mueller said Barr's

the FBI had made their own summary which Barr refused to release.

- Because our water is just too damned clean (ask anyone in Flint), Republicans are working to weaken the EPA's definition of clean water, allowing

- After two years of being attacked on both sides, from the press because Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein did Trump's dirty work all-the-while praising the demagogue, and from Trump himself because
Rosenstein was corrupt, but not corrupt enough for Trump, Rod is finally resigning in
disgrace, just like the rest of Trump's goons.
- Erik Prince, brother of Betsy DeVos, and co-founder of Blackwater, the for-profit mercenary corporation best known for murdering civilians, is finally facing criminal charges for lying to the US government
over illegal dealings with... you guessed it, Russia. Republicans
are trying to protect him, of course, because his crimes will make them look even worse than they already do.
- Trump's financial history with Deutsche Bank and Capital One is being subpoenaed because of probably criminal and ethical violations, so Trump is suing both banks to try and
keep everything secret.
- Samantha Bee put together a fantastic show called the Not the White House Correspondent's
Dinner in response to Trump's being a coward and refusing to let journalists satirize him. Topics included
false balance, deep fakes, the importance of
calling racists racist, and honoring the one sole member of Fox that isn't a bat-shit crazy conspiracy theorist,
Shephard Smith. There was even a nice red carpet event leading up to it.
- To prove how great of a Christian he is, Trump is now requiring refugees to buy US help. Imagine thousands of Jews running from the Nazis during World War II, they've left everything they own behind and
traveled across several countries and an entire ocean to seek refuge in the USA. They arrive on our shores hungry, poor, and barely alive. They beg us to help them, and our response is, "Unless you can pay us
for you own food and lodging, you can't come in!" That's Trump's new policy.
- Republicans are trying to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. Not because they've committed acts of terrorism, but because the current president of Egypt wants to make it easier to

- Republican Darren Bailey isn't just openly defying the US Constitution, but he's also an antivaxxer who likes to spread
lies about vaccines.
- Yes, Trump is a criminal, even if Republicans don't want to call him one.
A lot of the heartwarming news you see isn't heartwarming at all. Like, here we are in 2019, but people are still compelled to keep secret their

hateful approach to the LGBT, but it's tragic that they have to do
it in the first place.

- The data are in. Evangelicals and Republicans are straight-up hypocrites. They will adjust their morality to match their political leader, no matter how
disgustingly evil they may be. Just look at Franklin Graham's
unwavering support for Trump. They may as well just break up with Jesus.
- Government records show that Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort routinely passed up US workers in order to
hire illegal immigrants.
- At least one Republican law makers clearly admits, they vote in favor of obviously unconstitutional bills and make them law, knowing full well the courts will strike down the bill and waste tons of money
and countless person-hours just to appease the Christians who voted
them into office.
- Trump's pick for the Federal Reserve board, Stephen Moore, is apologizing for the many hateful things he said about women. Not because he respects women, after all, he said that the only women who should be
allowed to work in sports are the women he finds attractive, no, he's apologizing because people
didn't find his sexist jokes very funny.

The CFI day of advocacy was a huge success. Collectively, we met with over 50 state senators and representatives or their staffers to educate them about the existence of secular Michiganders, the
unprecedented growth of the non-religious demographic in America, and our opinions on State matters. I really feel proud to have worked hard to make our voices heard.
I've reverse-engineered some formats from the DOS port of Ultima II: Revenge of the Enchantress, including the full
screen CGA graphics and the talk files.
- Deputy Attorney General, Republican Rod Rosenstein, rebukes his fellow Republicans and Fox and admits that he handled the Russia investigation properly, the he was right not to stop Mueller, and that
Russian hacking is an extremely serious problem.
- Speaking of Russia owning Republicans, NRA spokeswoman Maria Butina, who was cozy with dozens of Republican politicians, is receiving her prison sentence today after she funneled secret American information
to the Russian government.
- The CEO of Twitter personally called Democrat Ilhan Omar and told her that Trump's bigoted Twitter post, which compared Omar to the terrorists behind the 9/11 attack, will remain online despite inciting
hundreds of other Twitter users to threaten to murder Omar.
- Good news for those people who voted to end Gerrymandering in Michigan. State judges have rules that the district lines must be redrawn under the
new fairer method.
- Just a reminder to Republicans, while you're free to have your own personal religious beliefs, you can't use official government channels to promote your religion, and that includes your
government Facebook page.
- Republican Matt Bevin blamed teachers who went on strike for better classroom funding for the
accidental shooting of a child.
- Religions getting preferential treatment in the USA has led to many groups pretending to be religions in order to get all the benefits. At first is was televangelists who perform no religious services, but
still get tax-free donations, but now, it's government-protected tax-free
Catholics are cracking down on their massive collection of hospitals and making sure that none of them provide birth control to women surreptitiously like they've
been doing in the past. Never mind that most Catholics use birth
control, they only care about what the Vatican says.
It's always important to remember that just because a person is a skeptic, that doesn't mean they're a good person. Take Carl Benjamin, who goes by "Sargon of Akkad" on YouTube. He has a long history of
using bigoted slurs to attack religions, races, and even people with disabilities.
|Please girls, let me sleep!|
I'm off work tomorrow. I'm going to the Michigan Capital with CFI to speak to my state's congress about why they should care about secular voters.
- Republican Mick Mulvaney states it very clearly, the Trump administration's goal is to use their government authority to
force Christian beliefs on everyone else. You know, good Christian beliefs
like hating foreigners, cheating on your many wives, and taking money away from children to buy more bombs.
- Big shocker, Trump is opposed to allowing White House staff testify to Congress.
However, considering how damning the Mueller report is, it may not matter.
- The UN was all set to pass a resolution saying that it opposed war-time rape. Then, US Republicans threatened to veto it because the same resolution said that survivors of rape should have access to sexual
and reproductive health care, so the UN eliminated the part about giving raped women
access to health care. Note that the resolution didn't say anything
about abortion, but US Republicans are so obsessed with abortion, that the words "women's reproductive health care" have no other meaning to them.

|That's enough Ultima for awhile|
I've created a page for Ultima and its various remakes.
- The Mueller report made it very clear, it was not an exoneration of Trump, in fact, it was
just shy of an indictment.
- Republican Mike Shea was caught talking with a violent Conservative hate group. The group was suggesting spying on people and violently attacking them, and Shea said he would help get personal information
for the group to brutalize them while they're alone and with their children.
- Sarah Huckabee Sanders has admitted to lying multiple times to protect Trump from the FBI, she just won't
apologize for it.
- Trump is a big fan of Khalifa Hifter, head of an insurgent group that is invading Libya and trying to topple the nation's UN-recognized official government. Trump prised Hifter for fighting "terrorism" and
protecting the USA's access to the nation's oil.
- Trump's 2020 campaign is targeting the only people left who still plan to vote for him: old racist white people.
Why do video games always insist that you save the monarchy?
It's not good for your image when you call yourself a "skeptic," but you fall for a conspiracy theory, correct your mistake with a second conspiracy theory, and then blame the people who pointed out how you

For the MS-DOS port of Ultima I, I've reverse-engineered all of the tile graphic formats and wrote a viewer to display them. I
also discovered the format of the end game graphic.
- People are still reviewing all the dirt in the Mueller Report because there is just
so much dirt!
- To benefit the Trump administration, Russian trolls used the picture of a miner who had died from black lung disease to promote
miners for Trump.
- Republicans Matt Bevin and Betsy DeVos held a meeting about how much they cared about public schools, while at the same time, banning public school students from attending. So, the public school students
wrote their own story about the meeting.
- It always pleases me when politicians shoot themselves in the foot and reveal just how little they think of people. Take Republican Maureen Walsh who said that nurses just sit around and play cards all day
instead of treating patients, or Republican Stephen Moore, Trump's pick to work on
the board at the Federal Reserve, who, upon learning his wife voted for a Democrat, complained that "Women are sooo malleable! No wonder there's a gender gap," and said it was a travesty that women feel
entitled to play even amateur sports with men, and that women shouldn't even be allowed to sell beer at men's
college basketball events.
- Conservative judges have ruled that the U.S. House of Representatives is allowed to religiously discriminate against invocation speakers, even against those that meet all of the listed requirements, but
aren't of the religion that the House approves of, and the House of Representatives
only approves of Abrahamic religions.
- Yet another white male terrorist was arrested by the FBI. Larry Mitchell Hopkins, a convicted felon who had a cache of guns, led a vigilante group that was kidnapping adults and children and
holding them at gunpoint. The group was doing this to
people they believed were illegal immigrants even though it would still be a crime if they were.
- Fox isn't just running ads for the giant wooden box called the Ark Encounter, they're even promoting it
in their shows!
Hannah Fry, everyone's favorite redheaded mathematician, talks about the pros and cons of having a world run by computers, and

tiles used in towns, and the
town map format.
- With more of the redacted Mueller Report finally released, we discover that, no, Mueller most certainly did not exonerate Trump. In fact, Mueller listed
ten individual examples where Trump specifically might be found guilty of
obstruction of justice in a court of law, but concluded that it wasn't the FBI's role to determine if those ten potential crimes should be prosecuted. Look here for details of the
ten potential crimes.
- Thanks to Trump and his fellow Republicans, the US has become a dangerous place for people who work to expose the truth, AKA journalists. With all the calls for violence against them, and the constant death
threats they American journalists receive, Reporters Without Borders has downgraded the US from "satisfactory"
- The Mueller report also verified many of the events that Trump called "fake news."
- Trump's pick to fun the Federal Reserve, Republican Stephen Moore, believes that capitalism is more important than
- The redacted Mueller Report included more detail about the Russian hacking campaign which targeted the 2016 presidential election. It described how Russian hackers systematically tested the security of
electronic voting systems and successfully breached voting computers in Florida and
Illinois. Naturally, the entirety of the Mueller report is being rejected by
- Democrats are trying to tax the ultra-wealthy which may be the only way we can dig ourselves out of the biggest national deficit the nation has ever seen,
thanks to Trump.
- Does Trump think he works for Fox?
- More details of Julian Assange and his poopscapades.
Good news, Gallup reports that church membership in hte USA is the lowest it has been since they started tracking it
way back in 1938!
Bethany Christian Services in Michigan finally caved. They were hoping they could continue to discriminate against LGBT couples and never adopt children to them, but, upon facing the loss of state funding,
and a potential walk out by several of their employees, the agency finally agreed
to stop discriminating. They claim their mission and values have survived unchanged, but this is clearly a loss for their bigotry and a win for general decency.

- Trump is refusing to let any Americans join the UN's anti-racism committee. Not because
he and this administration is horribly racist, but... because...
- Antivaxxers have typically been bipartisan, but I hope that this new trend of Republicans really pushing against vaccines will make it a partisan issue. Democrats will start learning science to separate
themselves from anti-science Republicans and start vaccinating their kids more. So far, that appears to be the route
the country is taking. Thankfully, many states and municipalities are becoming more vigilant
over their vaccine laws.
- I honestly don't care much about the fire at Notre Dame. Yes, it is a wonderful example of beautiful architecture, but it was built on the backs of millions who were abused and violated by the Catholic
Church, and it's sick to see so many people so eager to throw money at it when they can't be bothered to help people who are dying all around them. That being said, I love that the French fire department
specifically pointed out why Trump's asinine idea would just make things worse. And what happened to Trump's
"America First" attitude?
- I'm pleased to see that more Christian students are calling out the Trump administration, especially the
hypocrisy of Mike Pence.
- Fox interviewed Bernie Sanders, it didn't go well for Fox.
Catholics, who can't seem to stop raping children, are suing the State of Michigan in an attempt to prevent the State from allowing LGBT couples

I reverse engineered both the CGA and EGA full screen graphic formats used in Ultima I.
- Trump keeps refusing as more and more subpoenas for his finances
- Republican William Bar, US Attorney General, is violating the US Constitution by refusing to give bail
to asylum seekers.
- Trump and Sarah Huckabee Sanders say Congress isn't smart enough to review Trump's taxes. Well, sure, not the Republicans, but the Democrats actually elected a woman who
wrote a text book on finance.
- Republicans voted to abruptly close a Planned Parenthood in Muskegon, Michigan. This won't decrease abortions, because that branch doesn't provide abortions, but it will eliminate local women's access to
affordable birth control, cancer screening, sexual assault counseling, and family planning advice. Good work Republicans, you have
once again injured women.

- In order to prove how much they support veterans, Republicans deported the spouse of a US soldier killed in Afghanistan, leaving the couple's 12-year-old daughter in Arizona without either parent. After a
media shitstorm reminded the country just how callous and hateful Republicans are, they decided to
let the spouse back in.
- Fox pundit, Laura Ingraham is in trouble for mocking a rapper who was recently murdered because he wrote a song which contained lyrics that were against Trump. She sneered her way through his music video,
but couldn't even properly identify the rapper she was
- In a display of anti-corruption Democratic presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Beto O'Rourke are releasing 10 years worth of tax returns
to the public. I wonder if Trump will do the same? Nah, Republicans continue to
lie to protect him.
- Under Trump's incompetent rule, the opioid epidemic has gotten much worse and so has airplane
- Republican Michele Bachmann says we will "never see a more godly biblical president"
than Donald Trump. That may be true, Trump is nearly as horribly bigoted, racist,
violent, ignorant, and hateful as the god of the bible.

|Who said that my party was all over?|
My birthday party on Saturday was a huge success. Emily wanted about 10 people, and we only had 30... so, good compromise!
- Trump really hates immigrants, but not as much as Lou Dobbs and Stephen Miller.
- Trump claimed Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is anti-Semitic and, since she is Muslim, related to the 9/11 terrorist attack. Trump is a bigot and his bigotry is
inciting death threats.
- In case you forgot, Herman Cain is terrible at economics, sucks at global issues, and has a history of sexual assault. That must be why Trump sees a
- Republican Ted Cruz is very upset that Yale Law will not reward students who work for
Christian hate groups.
- Republican Mike Pence wanted to speak at Taylor University, a private Christian college, but, unlike the popular Evangelical schools, the Christians at Taylor U do not approve of an administration full of
criminals, cheat, liars, thieves, and swindlers, and the majority of the staff voted to
rescind Pence's invitation!
- Satire about the arrest of Julian Assange and what it means to real journalists.
Seven boys entered a girl's restroom in an Alaskan public school to protest transgender students, but when they entered the restroom they found it occupied! A girl who had no idea what was going on tried to
leave, but, according to the girl's family, the boys wouldn't let her, so she kneed one of them in the groin to escape. School administrators then expelled... the girl. While the administrators are refusing to
comment, it certainly seems like they expelled her because she fought against the seven bigoted boys who trapped her
in the girl's restroom.

- Prior to the presidential election of 2016, Trump mentioned WikiLeaks 141
times. The FBI later learned that this was no accident because Trump's advisor, Republican Roger Stone, was in
direct contact with WikiLeaks getting getting access to Democrat emails which were stolen
by Russian hackers, and Trump publicly begged Russian hackers to release stolen emails prior to the election. I bring this up because Trump is now claiming that he doesn't know anything about WikiLeaks and
has no opinion of Julian Assange.
- Despite claiming zero tolerance against illegal immigrants, Trump actually tried on multiple occasions to dump illegal immigrants into sanctuary cities all across America in hopes that the extra burden of
more immigrants would act as a punishment to the cities for not turning over their existing illegal immigrants to federal law enforcement. It's awfully telling that Trump cares more about punishing Americans
that disagree with him than stopping illegal immigration. Meanwhile, families are still broken because of
Trump's policies; Kristjen Neilsen would be proud.
- Ohio Republicans just passed a law banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected with a medically unnecessary and painful
trans-vaginal ultrasound, in many cases before a woman will even know she's pregnant. These bills have
already been ruled on as illegal, so, hopefully it be struck down
quickly, but with so many Republicans on the US Supreme Court, I'm not holding my breath.
- Conservatives really do think Trump is their new god. The Republican Jewish Coalition even swapped out the word "God" with "Trump"
when singing a hymn!
- Trump wanted to put his ditsy daughter in charge of the World Bank.
- The arsonist who burned down three black churches appears to be yet another home-grown white American terrorist, Holden Matthews.
- Maxine Waters was not impressed by the childish antics of horribly corrupt Secretary of Treasury, Republican Steve Mnuchin.
- Trump is confident that he "won" the criminal investigation against him that he refuses to let anyone see.
- Republican Supreme Court Justice and sexual criminal Clarence Thomas, right after saying he doesn't know a single judge who would let their religion interfere with their job, said that people who don't
believe in a god can't be trusted since oaths mean nothing to them. I can
give him one example of a judge who lets his religion interfere with his job!

- Turns out Trump's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, is just as corrupt as her brother. She was federal appellate judge who was being investigated in a tax fraud case which alleged that she used her powers as a
judge to avoid paying taxes on her and her sibling's inheritance. To avoid the investigation, Maryanne Trump Barry resigned. Apparently, if you're a judge, the law lets you just quit your job and all your
crimes magically vanish, now she's getting a taxpayer paid $200,000 retirement.
- Despite hating working for Trump, Republican Kirstjen Nielsen was afraid to resign because of how bad she'll be treated after being known only as
the woman responsible for snatching children away from their parents and putting them in cages. Maybe we should go easy on her and just take away her children and put them in cages? With news that they baby
cages are going to return, Trump is dealing with it the same way he deals with everything. Blame Obama, and
never stop lying.
- Republican Tony Tinderholt, married five times, is trying to pass a law that will allow the execution of any woman
who has an abortion. Meanwhile, South Korea has
ended their ban on abortion.
- WikiLeaks founder, accused rapist, and man who helped Trump cheat the election, Julian Assange, has finally been arrested.
- The Mueller Report is still buried, and will probably be so redacted, it will be pointless. We'll have to wait until Trump is out of the White House to actually
see anything important.
- Fox posted poll results and Trump ran with them bragging about his great numbers. Of course, this was from Fox, so moments later, the people who actually made the poll called out Fox for
changing the poll data. Fox lies, and Trump lies with them.
- Christians often turn violent and murder people who challenge their theocracy. Because of this, it's common for secular people to remain anonymous in lawsuits as to not paint a target on their backs.
Unfortunately, Republican Hardy Billington is trying to pass a law forcing everyone involved in a state-church separation lawsuit
to use their real name. Obviously, this will only affect
non-religious people, and it will scare them into not filing lawsuits. As is typical with Republicans, they don't care about enforcing fairness, they only care about forcing their beliefs on other people.

I wasn't that bothered by the parents who were caught bribing their children's way into prestigious colleges. It makes them look bad, it makes the colleges look bad, it reminds people not to trust someone
who claims they're smart simply because they went to an expensive school. But, one of the cheating parents, Lori Loughlin, says that she's coping with the fallout from her crimes by...
relying on her faith in her god! Priceless Christian hypocrisy.

- More news about baby snatcher Kirstjen Nielsen and why she was forced to resign. Naturally, Trump is lying about it all, claiming that it wasn't he
who put children into cages, but Obama, and Trump stopped Obama from doing it!
- Trump continues to lie about his taxes and immigration, and his racism is ruining life
for a lot of people.
- The Republican-controlled Justice Department has decided that it's not political corruption if a foreign nation wants to bribe a US President, as long as they
do it through his companies. This wouldn't have even been a problem with
every president before Trump, because they all disassociated themselves from their businesses for this very reason.
- Because oil and gas companies are just too safe, Trump has signed an executive order taking away the rights of states to create regulations and restrictions meant to protect people from oil spills,
explosions, and other deadly mistakes that are all too common.
- Tucker Carlson has disdain the poor, and even the middle class. He mocks women and homosexuals. He doesn't care much for people who aren't white. He isn't very fond of intelligent people either. And, when
his views really came back to bite him, he made no attempt to apologize for them. So now, his show is losing money, a lot of money. 34 advertisers have stopped marketing on his show, but there are still a few
organizations that don't mind feeding the ghoul including My Pillow USA, Nutrisystem, Sandals Resorts, OxiClean,

I've added a page for The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
- Trump is moving forward on his closure of the US Southern border and the imprisonment and separation of families and is even telling border patrol to
disobey the rulings of federal judges.
- The Republican government is so piece-meal right now, they're mostly working with "acting" secretaries and directors, and Trump doesn't even mind firing the Director of the Secret Service, the very people
who keep his crime family safe! He can blame the Secret Service for the Chinese woman who
infiltrated Mar-a-Lago, but the lax security is entirely Trump's fault. A whole bunch of other people at the Department of Homeland Security are
also being sacked for not hating Central Americans enough. They too probably won't be
replaced. Let's hope Republican stupidity pays off.
- Democrat Ilhan Omar called Republican Stephen Miller a white nationalist. This is true, he is a white nationalist, but I would go further and say he's a white supremacist. Coming from anyone else, the
Republican response would be, "sure he may do all the same things a white nationalist does, but he isn't a white nationalist because he says he isn't," but, because Omar is a Muslim, the Republican response is,
"Omar's an anti-Semite!" This means very little coming right on the heels of Trump accusing Jews of
not being Jewish enough to vote for the candidate Trump prefers.
- Treasury Secretary, Republican Steven Mnuchin, admitted that he gave Trump's
lawyers special access to Treasury records, even before Democrats made an official request for his tax returns, so they could preemptively put together a defense plan. The Democrats are using the same
anti-corruption provision used to discover the crimes of Republican Ricard Nixon.

the bigoted head of the Department of Homeland Security, has unexpectedly resigned. Nielsen will make
way for a third Secretary, as Trump's first choice, John Kelly was called into the White House to try and stop that shit show.
- Americans continue to demand the Mueller report and Trump's taxes, while Republicans
continue to obstruct, demanding to remain ignorant.
- Racist bigot, and Fox pundit (oxymoron), Tucker Carlson, spends much of his show ranting about how bad the US elite are. So, naturally, Tucker Carlson has spent much of his career bragging about how elite
he is, and he really is.
- Black church burnings are still a thing in the USA, but Republicans
still don't seem to interested in addressing white supremacy.
- Just like Hitler in Nazi Germany, Trump says that the US is "full" and that immigrants are no longer allowed. He even said this in front of
a bunch of Jews.
- Trump wants to get Herman Cain back into politics because he was so good at them to begin with.

Private Catholic school student Jerome Kunkel tried suing Northern Kentucky Health Department for barring him from teen sports until he was vaccinated because the district currently has an epidemic of
chickenpox. Kunkel claimed that he couldn't get vaccinated because his parents read on the Internet how vaccines are made from aborted fetuses, and apparently his religion says he can't inject cells from
aborted fetuses. While I'm pretty confident the bible doesn't say that, attorneys for the Northern Kentucky Health Department showed that, not only can scientists prove that the vaccines of today are not made
from aborted fetuses, but even the Vatican says there is no moral problem with getting vaccinated. Thankfully, the judge ruled against the
scientifically illiterate family.
While that is good news, New York is going in reverse. A county wisely banned unvaccinated children from schools and public places during the states largest measles outbreak in decades, but a judge has ruled

- While campaigning for presidency, Donald Trump promised to release his tax returns, which was customary for any presidential hopeful. Of course, he lied. Democrats are now working to force him to reveal
them, but Trump, is protecting the evidence of his corruption like a mother bear and her cubs
(which Trump just made it legal to kill).
- Trump became anti-abortion so he could become a Republican politician. Also, do you think Trump would even consider being anti-abortion if he knocked up one of the many women with whom he cheated on his
wives? But America's Conservative Christians, who have no morals to speak of, continue to see Trump as their Messiah because he is helping them criminalize

- While they have no problem removing all regulations on predatory payday lender companies, Republicans continue to refuse to help students who are

- Trump is looking at cutting $600,000,000 from the funding of the poor, elderly, and art culture. Interestingly, that's just about the same amount of money he is expected to waste in the upcoming years
charging his vacations to US taxpayers.
- Handing over the private information of your customers to law enforcement without their consent is a far greater crime than illegal immigration, a $12,000,000 lesson that Motel 6

- Well sure, Trump lies and cheats about everything else, why wouldn't he also cheat at golf?
- Republicans, Trump especially, assured their incompetent voters that they would give them the best health care they've ever seen. But, for two years of owning the entire US government, all they did was
lower taxes on millionaires. And now, they've given up on health care all together.
- One argument white supremacists use is that the great conquerers of the Western world, the Romans, were beautifully marble white. They're just as

Some of the more interesting controversies seen with Magic: The Gathering over the years.
Google used to have a motto, "Don't be evil," but their recent ventures into the military have shown that they don't care much about that anymore. In an effort to make it seem like they still care about
helping humanity over their pocketbooks, they created an ethics board to oversee their own AI work, but they stocked it with Kay Coles James, a bigot from the Heritage Foundation. After thousands of Google
employees petitioned to have the bigot removed, and the resignation of a fellow board member Alessandro Acquisti who refused to work with on an ethics board with a Heritage Foundation bigot, Google just shut
down the ethics board all together. It lasted only one week. Google now needs to adopt a new motto, "Stop being

I've added a list of my favorite emulators by platform in my emulators page.
- By refusing to vote on any of Obama's picks for years, the Republican Senate has created far too many vacancies for to fill under the normal vetting process. So, in order to get Trump's unqualified, but
ultra-Conservative federal judges pushed through, the Republican controlled Senate is using the "nuclear option." It's called the "nuclear option" because it has the metaphorical impact of
an atomic bomb on the US system of checks and balances. Ordinarily, someone
appointed to an extremely high level of office like a federal judge must go through a serious vetting process to make sure they're both qualified for the job and aren't compromised by debt, foreign powers, or
strange personal beliefs. Republican Mitch McConnell is permanently changing the way the Senate works to effectively neuter the vetting process forever, upsetting
213 years of US history. While
this will certainly let them get a lot of their own judges into positions with life-time tenures, it's going to cause a serious swing the next time the Democrats have the Senate. It's a shame Republicans can't
look any further than a few years into the future of the country.
- One good thing you can say about Trump is that he's at least consistent in his dishonesty. Like, you can be confident that if he says something, it's a lie. Take everything he says about wind energy, all
of it; it's a lie.
- Shell, one of the largest fossil fuels companies in the world, is leaving the US oil lobby because the US oil lobby doesn't take climate change seriously enough! Got that? An oil company is telling the US
that we're not taking climate change seriously enough! Speaking of
which, Trump's latest pick to run the Department of Interior, after his last pick Ryan Zinke resigned to avoid another corruption scandal, is
David Bernhardt who is already mixed up in several scandals, including the fact that he continued to lobby for the oil industry long after he was
supposed to have stopped to get this job.
- It's not just the USA who lets their Conservative party dismantle their safety regulators and let companies like Boeing skimp of safety features and
negligently kill people.
- Jared Kushner, the completely unqualified Republican who, for a long time was tasked with every job in the White House, has been outed as one of the people who was identified as a security risk, denied
security clearance, and then given it anyway because the White House has been
handing out security clearances like AOL disks. Republicans are not very appreciative of the whistle-blower who properly did her job to report this, and
now they're abusing her disability because of it.
- Trump takes so many vacations at public resorts, it's basically impossible to keep him (and top secret information) safe, as arrested Chinese nationalist
Yujing Zhang demonstrates. She failed, but
have others before her succeeded? Will those after her succeed?

Texas loves killing people more than they love Jesus! The state was being sued by a man about to be executed because, while they would allow Christian clergy to pray over Christians being executed, they
refused allow Buddhist clergy to pray over Buddhists being executed. Rather than be fair and allow the Buddhist to receive a final prayer, they decided to
eliminate all clergy of any kind! Standard Republican behavior: we'd rather become secularists than allow
people to have different religious beliefs!

I've added a page to describe the gradient paradox.
- As predicted, Trump has pulled a 180 and is now claiming that he does not want the
full Mueller report released, and his Republican servants in Congress are conspiring with him to
keep it secret. If it does get released, you can be there will be a whole new
- Trump is threatening to close the border to all three Mexicos. That would be catastrophically bad!
- Usually when you think of Trump the words "defective baby stroller" don't come into your head, but, now that's all I can think about. The company Britax was facing a recall of 500,000 jogging strollers due
to a defective front tire that had a tendency to fall off during a run and cause injuries to parent and child. However, once the Trump administration took office,
recall never happened.
- Not only did Trump approve the sale of US nuclear secrets to Saudi Arabia, but he did so without even consulting the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Survivors of the mass murder at Parkland school have been committing suicide. While it's impossible to point a finger and say that any one thing caused the survivors to kill themselves, one thing that cannot

I added a page for μTorrent.
- The US government keeps a list of everyone who has ever been submitted for security clearance and the results of that request. Often, people are rejected due to untrustworthy behavior, especially involving
foreign governments, or unacceptable person conduct. A White House whistle blower has reported that, during the Trump administration, Republicans have silently granted security clearance to 25 people that were
previously rejected! Of course, from a political party that doesn't mind
giving security clearance to a nobody like Jared Kushner, you have to wonder.
- After yet another scandal revealing just how terrible she is, Betsy DeVos tried to defend her canceling of the Special Olympics by claiming her hand
was forced by those above her. Ah, the old "I was just following orders" excuse. Where have we heard that before?

- Trump failed yet again to try and stop the Affordable Care Act.
- Republicans have okay the sale of nuclear power plans to Saudi Arabia, the nation that murders journalists. The Muslim nation even asked for the sale to be kept secret from the media, and Republicans
agreed, but, much like a barrel of nuclear waste, it leaked out.
- It's nice to see that Trump has again caved, and funding will be kept for the
Special Olympics, but they were only a portion of the cuts made by Republican Betsy DeVos to all of eduction, which are still on the chopping block.
- A bunch of Republicans agreed that Trump didn't surpass the legal definition of "obstruction of justice," but let's be real, several members of his
campaign did collude with Russia for political gain, and, even if Trump didn't personally collude, he publicly asked to, and
did, benefit from collusion.
- Breaking the promises of previous presidents isn't a very good tactic, especially when it hurts the US military, but that's what Republicans do
- Decreasing the vetting process of government officials so Trump can appoint more unqualified people in positions of power is not a good idea, but Republican Mitch McConnell is
probably going to do it anyway. Changing the rules forever just to give your side a slight advantage is stupidly
short-sighted. What happens when Democrats take control of the Senate, and they no longer have to deal with any of these safety nets? Are you going to like it then?
- Ultra-Conservative Mick Mulvaney is slowly becoming the most powerful man in America.
- Trump has replaced the EPA with anti-science Republicans who don't know what an environment is. They have dismantled most of the major pollution monitoring programs and are no longer accepting a lot of
scientific data that shows why air pollution is very dangerous. Now that there is little data left to show how smog kills people, they are claiming that they need to
relax clean air laws.

Andrew and Owen Renner are a father and son duo who came across a mother bear in her den with her two cubs. They illegally shot the mother, and then, as her cubs shrieked in terror, they shot both the cubs.
Then, they high-fived each other with pride for their "hunt," took incriminating photos, and vocally mocked the legal system that made this type of slaughter illegal, not knowing that everything they just did
was caught on camera by a couple scientists monitoring the bear because it's becoming endangered. Andrew was sentenced to
three months in jail and a $9,000 fine, and his
17-year-old son was given community service. Both lost their hunting licenses for a period of time.

I've added a page addressing the argument, more people are killed by hammers than rifles.
- Trump is making another half-assed attempt at ending the Affordable Care Act with no plan of his own to replace it which would eliminate health
care for millions of Americans, mostly the elderly and poor. Even several other Republicans think it's a stupid move, but will they have the backbone
to stop him this time?
- Democrats continue to demand the Mueller Report be released to the public, as they should.
- The NRA is working with people show claim mass-shootings are staged events with
actors put on by Democrats in an attempt to ban guns.
- The USA doesn't have kings. Everyone is subject to the same laws are rules as everyone else. Unless it's
Trump on Twitter.
- Science is neither elitist or partisan, but Republicans, the anti-science party, think it's both.
- Trump is still trying to stop any and all non-pro-Trump television.
A bunch of men with guns drawn broke into an apartment where a 4-year-old was celebrating his birthday party with a bunch of kids as they were playing duck-duck-goose. The parent's were terrified for the
life of their children as the strange men shouted for everyone to "get your fucking hands up!" because, "we are doing a fucking raid!" The crazed gun-toting men then spent the next 45 minutes ransacking the
apartment and even smashed the child's birthday cake. When all was said an done, it turned out that the men who broke into the house and traumatized the children were actually Chicago police who had just
raided the wrong house. They were looking for someone who hadn't lived there in over five
years. Turns out, they have raided the wrong houses over a dozen times in the past two years!

I finished reading the The Great Gatsby. It's overrated.
- The Mueller Report remains a secret, but Trump's Attorney General, William Barr, has released his 4-page
redacted version. Barr himself quotes Mueller saying that the report
"does not exonerate [Trump]," Trump immediately crowed that the report exonerated him. And, while Trump claims he wants the report made
public, I think this is the same type of lie he used with his tax returns; claim that you want something out in the open to make it look like you value transparency, but, when it's time to do it, refuse. Of
course, if this report truly does exonerate Trump, he should be pushing to make it public, but I doubt he will. From the meager scraps Barr has released, there doesn't appear to be any additional incriminating
evidence for Republicans beyond what has already been made public, which is a lot, and this is where I'm confused. Several people in the Trump administration have been convicted of crimes directly related to
Russia. Trump's National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn, was found guilty lying to the FBI and the Vice President about his involvement with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Trump's campaign manager, Paul
Manafort, used a pro-Russia Ukrainian group to help him launder millions of dollars. Trump's campaign advisor, George Papadopoulos, along with Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr, and Jared Kushner, all met with
several Russian lobbyists who claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton in the form of hacked emails, which Don Jr repeatedly lied about. Finally, Trump's campaign advisor, Roger Stone, is currently on trial for
working with WikiLeaks and a Russian hacker, to help release Hillary Clinton's hacked emails. Manafort is in prison, Papadopoulos is in prison, and Stone is likely going to prison, so why would the FBI say
nobody in the Trump administration colluded with Russia? I understand why they said Trump didn't commit this specific crime. Sure, he publicly begged a hostile foreign government to attack his political
opponent, but there isn't any direct evidence he worked with Russia, but his administration sure did.

okay McCain's funeral, because that isn't the job of the President.
- Everything bad thing that Trump warned about Hillary Clinton has come true under his administration. He warned that Hillary would constantly be embroiled in legal scandals, Trump has been sued hundreds of
times, and frequently lost. He said Hillary didn't have the stamina to be president, he has taken more vacations and watches more TV than any president in history. He said Hillary would be dangerous for
national security, Trump continues to use an insecure phone, all his staff use private email servers, and his son-in-law, who was given top secret security clearance for no reason, has been

- Why didn't the FAA detect the serious safety flaw in Boeing's nose-diving 737 MAX 8? Well, since Republicans keep cutting their funding, the FAA can not longer afford to hire engineers to test the safety
of planes. At this point, they're basically have to take Boeing's word that the planes are safe. Not a very good tactic when the company doesn't respond to the safety concerns of their pilots,
or even train them properly.

- After 50 Muslims were murdered in New Zealand by a white supremacist who called Trump "a symbol of renewed white identity." Trump responded, not by claiming that white supremacist are terrible, nor by
sympathizing with the murdered Muslims and their families, but by saying, incorrectly, that white supremacists are a small group. The reality is, they're
growing because of Trump.
- New information is coming out about Trump's massive debt. Just prior to becoming President, Trump lied about his net worth and even offered kickbacks to Deutsche Bank in order to secure a
loan of $2,000,000,000. Not surprisingly, Trump's budget is also massive debt where a huge
chunk of the expected income is falsified.
- Only a handful of Republicans had the backbone to stand up to Trump's fake border emergency, but not enough to prevent a veto.
- Republican Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held a meeting which not only barred all press, but also only included religious people! Now they refuse to tell the public specifically who came to it, and
what the meeting was about.
- Russia is doing what Trump dreams about, controlling their journalists so that they can't disrespect the government, even
when the government is wrong.
- Never forget that Evangelicals have sold out their god to Trump. Even after multiple years of scandals, corruption, affairs, bribery, theft, and cheating,
white Christians still adore Trump.

Rather than admit his tax breaks did nothing to help the working class, or even keep companies in the USA, Trump is blaming
workers who expect a living wage.
- Jeffrey Epstein was accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl, so why was he only charged with having sex

- Tucker Carlson's misogyny and racism isn't anything new, he's still this way on Fox.
- Trump tried personally threating Republicans who might choose defy his ridiculous border emergency, but that appears to have backfired, and enough Republicans choose sanity and shot down
his fake emergency.
- Republicans have decided that nursing homes are should be trusted much more, and have decided to cut the fines when they
endanger the lives of their residents.
- Republican Betsy DeVos, whose family got rich through a pyramid scheme, is trying a third time to ruin the lives of students in debt. Previously, a judge ruled that she broke the law in her actions, but

- Back in 2018, Trump tried to get his personal pilot to be the head of the entire FAA despite having no
experience running such a massive organization. Thankfully, the plan fell through, but the FAA still lacks a permanent leader, over a year later! Possibly due to this lack of leadership, the US was
the last nation to ground Boeing 737 Max 8 aircrafts after the massive crash.
- After being sentenced for his other crimes, Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort will now have to spend 7.5 years in prison. Still not nearly enough for the
millions of dollars he stole. But, on the plus side, he's been
indicted again on a whole new set of charges!
- Despite claiming he would protect Medicare at all his Nazi rallies, Trump's new budget cuts it deep.

I added a page for the Nightwish song, Nemo.
- Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was found guilty on eight counts of various forms of fraud covering tens of millions of dollars. Throughout the entire process, he has been caught lying to
law enforcement and never apologized for his crimes which held an expected sentence of 24 years in prison. So, it was quite a shock today when Judge T.S. Ellis III claimed that Manafort had lived an otherwise
blameless life and gave him an extremely lenient sentence of only 47 months!

|To sleep, perchance to dream|
I have added a page for the Seiken Densetsu AKA Mana universe.
I have had two interesting dreams recently, both involving the storage space of my house. In one dream, I go into my basement and it is filled with long rows of shelves, all covered with various objects
left by the previous owner: camping equipment, board games, pots and soil, etc. It's essentially a treasure trove to me, because I love going through large piles of rarely used stuff like this. The basement
also has a second level below it which is damp and musty, it's mostly empty, but there are huge leaky pipes, a boiler, and various things from an century-old basement. In the other dream, my house has an attic
rather than a basement. I go up to the attic because the washer and dryer are there, and it too has long rows of shelves full of books, toys, packages covered in paper, and so forth. There is also a large
chain-link cage that once housed a dog. As I walk down the aisles of the shelves, I see several racks of clothes, and people looking through them in order to buy them. I guess my house also has a shop! I see
another staircase and, confident in being the owner, I climb the stairs that are off-limits to the shoppers. The next level up is a restaurant! There are tables covered in white cloths surrounded by guests, and
servers bustle to-and-fro. I see that this must be some sort of Eastern European restaurant because the people are speaking a language like Slavic or Hungarian. I consider eating here myself since surely I must
be charging this place rent to run out of my attic. I take another set of stairs and they lead to an observation balcony. I look down and realize that I am very high up, and a sense of dizziness overtakes me,
and I wake up.
- Homeland Security Secretary, Republican Kirstjen Nielsen, tried her damnedest to explain why the chain link cages they detain thousands of children in, aren't actually cages. It didn't work.
- A federal judge has ruled that Commerce Secretary, Republican Wilbur Ross, not only broke several laws, but violated the constitutional underpinning of representative democracy in a strong showing of bad
faith. So far, two federal judges have both rules this about Ross for his addition of a citizenship question
on the US census.
- Republicans say that transgender people can't serve in the military because they're diseased, however, every major medical community says that transgender
is not a disease.
- Alabama Judge Frank Barger states clearly that a fetus is a person, and a man whose girlfriend had an abortion can sue the manufacturer of the pill she used and the clinic that

- In order for a news outlet to be unbiased, they cannot have a chummy relationship with politicians. This is why it's so wrong for Fox to

- White supremacist recruitment posters are appearing in vastly greater numbers,
especially near Trump properties where they're most likely to find new members.
- Trump challenged Obama to publicly show his school transcripts, but, at the same time,
hypocritically hid his own.
- Republicans have successfully pushed through another inexperienced judge, Allison Rushing. Rushing is notable because she has worked diligently to criminalize the LGBT and once
worked for a hate group.

- I love how Republican's are calling Michael Cohen a liar and corrupt and a vile scumbag... even though they hired him. SNL had some more hilarious
jabs at them in Weekend Update.
- In order to prove that he is not being controlled by Fox, Trump posted a
direct quote from a Fox pundit. Check, and, mate!
- Iowa Republicans, still angry that their state allowed same-sex marriage before the federal government forced the rest of the nation to fall in line, not only booted all of their State Supreme Court judges,
but now they're trying to replace their system of electing new judges with a purely partisan system so they can have
only Republican judges.
- T-Mobile wants to merge with Sprint. Ordinarily, they would have to go through investigations and prove how their merger is good for the country, but since the Republicans are in charge, they just dumped a
bunch of money into Trump properties to grease the wheels.
- Ben Carson, the man who eliminated civil rights progress in government housing, and continues to run a massively corrupt department, has explained that he, like so many... many of his colleagues before him,

- Despite tauting his great relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, Trump didn't make any progress at the Vietnam summit, and the meeting was
a failure that ended prematurely, just like Trump in bed, ZINGER! This wasn't a surprise to
anyone informed individual, but Trump can't come to grips with his impotence, so he's blaming the
media and Michael Cohen's testimony.
- Trump truly is the most dishonest president in American history.
- Republican antivaxxer Bill Zedler is trying to make it easier for parents to opt-out of vaccinating their children (during his state's worst measles outbreak in decades, no less), by saying we have
antibiotics that can treat the disease instead. Since Bill Zedler is
clearly incompetent, let me correct his mistakes. Measles is a virus not bacteria, antibiotics don't treat viruses, viruses have no cure, getting measles causes permanent damage to your immune system.

Two days ago, I beat the game Circuit Scramble.
- The bulk of Michael Cohen's testimony isn't on any new topics, but the evidence he brings to the table adds weight to the earlier accusations. What I think is more damning is how Republicans are
tripping over themselves to lie about a liar.
- Trump demanded that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who has no reason to have access to top secret information or any training to safely handle top secret information, be given
top secret government clearance.
- It's a bit disheartening when I do a Google search to find an article on Trump's lie about the trade deficit he gave yesterday, only to find millions of pages covering dozens of different lies about the
same topic. Luckily, Fact Check dot org has cataloged his various lies on the subject.
- Republicans have appointed William Happer to the National Security Council to lead their anti-science
panel against climate change. He goes against the scientific consensus on pretty much every topic. He doesn't think fossil fuels harm the environment, thinks massive amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
will paradoxically help the planet, and doesn't think the ozone layer is beneficial!
- Antivaxxers have traditionally been politically liberal white women who are easily misinformed because they don't understand basic science or skepticism. However, the natural follow the herd mentality of
conservatives, coupled with a science-illiterate antivaxx Republican in charge, means Republicans are also becoming antivaxxers as well. Take Republican Kelly Townsend who is pro-God and antivaxx. She believes
that vaccinations are a secret Communist plot.
- What will the world be like if Republicans get their way and ban abortion? It will be like Argentina where an 11-year-old girl who was raped by her grandmother's boyfriend was

Yesterday, I finished reading Small Great Things.
- Trump defends Kim Jong Un for North Korea's abuse and eventual killing of American student Otto Warmbier. Defending, and even praising dictators, while ignoring Americans is
standard practice for Trump.
- Republicans ignore the century-old tradition of getting the approval of State senators before appointing a new judge that will directly affect their state, and instead force
Eric Miller into a federal judge seat after only
five minutes of questioning, none from a Democrat. Miller, is a Conservative judge who once clerked for
the sexual-assaulting Supreme Court justice, Clarence Thomas. Republicans always claim they care about small government and state's rights, but, in practice, they use the power of the federal government to
bulldoze over any states that disagree with them. Of course, by breaking this tradition, Republicans won't have a leg to stand on if Democrats decide to do the same thing.
- The Washington Post fact-checked the testimony of Michael Cohen. Interestingly, while most of what Cohen said was either true or unable to be falsified, a lot of what the Republicans said was
a flat out lie.
- Trump claimed he would solve the problem of rising prescription drugs, but, during his presidency, their prices have skyrocketed to the most expensive
they've ever been in American history.
- Ivanka Trump, who has had the world handed to her on a silver platter, says she doesn't think Americans want to see an increase in the minimum
- Republican Christian Hardy Billington doesn't think judges can be trusted to decide which people can remain anonymous because they fear Christians will attack them or their family for suing the state over
violations of the establishment clause in the first amendment, and he's ironically giving a great reason for why
Christians can't be trusted.

Russian involvement despite Republican Matt Gaetz threatening to
blackmail him and his family.
- Trump remains friendly with his labor secretary Republican Alexander Acosta despite Acosta protecting a child rapist.
- In order to protect his bill that bans abortion, Christian Republican Micah Van Huss admits that he cannot see the evil in the
rape of a 15-year-old girl.
- More evidence comes out of Trump committing tax fraud.
- Trump supporter Jacob Wohl admitted that he used fake social media accounts and constantly posted lies in order to manipulate elections. Twitter responded by banning his account because that is a violation
of their terms of service, but Facebook and Instagram haven't done nothing. It's a bit telling that Trump's
stated goal is also to be the equivalent of an Internet troll.

- After the September 11th attacks, Republicans waved a lot of flags, but when the first responders started having severe health problems, Republicans continued to wave flags, but refused to help cover their
health care bills until Democrats allowed them to once again lower taxes for the wealthy. It was the work of Democrats and John Stewart who finally
shamed Republicans enough to help the first responders, and now, they
have to do it again.
- Trump has had to pay $7,700,000,000 of our tax dollars to farmers alone because of his failed tariff
war. Imagine how many other professions have been affected, that the government has ruined. All of that money could have been spent on roads, schools, or bridges.

vast majority of climate scientists. And, in his revolving door of an administration, he
has appointed billionaire Kelly Knight Craft to be the next U.N. Ambassador. Craft famously said that she believes "both sides" of the

- Trump's Secretary of Labor, Alexander Acosta, helped protect the child sex trafficker and child-rapist
Jeffrey Epstein, and the Department of Justice is opening a probe into the case. Although, considering the Justice Department
is also controlled by Trump criminals who wouldn't like it if other Trump appointees went to prison, we shouldn't get our hopes up.
- Doctors are over-prescribing opioids so much that many Americans are dying, and a large reason they're prescribing so many is because they receive kick-backs from the drug manufacturers. So, naturally,

- Republican Mark Harris committed voter fraud so blatantly, than North Carolina has been forced to hold a
new election in his district! No doubt, many voters will vote for him again
because they don't care about honesty or integrity.
- Although many pundits are saying that, if Trump's fake and racist declaration of a national emergency is allowed to go through, a future Democrat president might use the same trick to declare global
warming an emergency, they fail to realize that global warming really is an emergency.

without federal approval, and
Trump's boss Putin is threating to target the US with missiles if we
help defend the EU.
- While campaigning, Trump bragged that he was a builder and he would build wonderful infrastructure for the USA. Instead, he's
canceling infrastructure projects because, after bankrupting the government, he can't
find any other place to get money for his useless border wall.
- Trump may have shot himself in the foot by saying he didn't need to declare a national emergency, while declaring a national emergency, and then
going on to describe it in the most blasé way possible, and then going on vacation. But that doesn't mean he won't get his way. I'm pleased to see that
my state is one of those suing Trump for his reckless abuse of
- Trump's choice for Attorney General, William Barr, has been approved. A quick list of accomplishments for Barr: he's pro-execution and wants to
eliminate the repeal process for people on death row so they can be executed faster, he has helped ban people entering the country if they're trying to get treatment for HIV, he's homophobic and wants to
re-criminalize homosexuality, he believes Catholicism should take over the country and be the rule of law, and naturally sides with the ban of Muslims entering the country, he doesn't see anything wrong with
Trump's past behavior and wants to end the FBI investigation against him, and, because he clearly cares about life so much, he's extremely anti-abortion and wants to repeal Roe v. Wade.
- Yet another extremely wealthy Republican has been caught red-handed in financial corruption. Trump's Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross violated his ethics agreement by mis-reporting his stock holdings. As is
typical, he's calling it a simple honest mistake because you can't expect a billionaire to
know their finances very well.
- Republicans in North Carolina are being investigated for one of the largest voter fraud schemes in the nation's history, but the Republicans who were clamoring for the end of voter fraud
are completely silent on it.
- Sadly, Republican judges issued an anti-abortion ruling favoring Texas Catholics. Texas made a law forcing people who have abortions to also provide a burial service for the fetus even though there is no
medical reason to do this. Naturally, a lawsuit occurred, but recently appointed Trump judge James Ho (who previously worked for an ultra-Conservative lawyer group) refusing to hear the case, and even wrote in
his ruling why the religious opinions of Catholics are more important than the
civil rights of Americans.
- The parents of Nicholas Sandmann, the boy wearing the Trump hat who grinned at a Native American veteran while his friends made racist comments behind him, are not doing their son any favors by suing the
Washington Post and keeping his face in the press even longer.
- West Virginia teachers have had to go on strike a lot recently just to earn a semi-living wage, and they recently had to strike again to prevent their state from selling out their children's future to

- One of the things I appreciate about glory hounds like Roger Stone is that they frequently shoot themselves in the foot in public. For example, Roger Stone found a picture of the judge that is presiding

won't help his 29 criminal charges.

questioned and mocked the student until a verbal conflict arose. The school's police were called into the room to punish the child, and, eventually the child became so agitated that he made verbal threats,
which caused the police to arrest him. When the smoke cleared, the teacher was fired, and the district agreed to better train their staff, but the 11-year-old boy still has an arrest on his record because a
teacher repeatedly tried to violate his civil rights.
Caleigh Wood is an ignorant Christian, and she is fighting for her right to remain an ignorant Christian. When Wood learned that she would have to learn about the history of Islam and how it affected the
world, she boycotted. How dare her school try to teach that science, technology, and culture could be created by anyone other than white male Christians?! Well, by refusing to do any of the assignments or read
any of the material, Wood got the expected bad grade, to which she and her family sued the school. They've lost their lawsuit, but they may try to appeal because they really want to
remain ignorant forever.

- As is typical for dictators, Trump has declared a fake emergency in order to bypass the normal checks and balances that limit his power. Trump says the emergency is illegal immigration, but the truth is
illegal immigration is actually the lowest it has been in over a
decade. So, where does Trump plan on getting another $8,000,000,000 for his useless border wall? Part of it will be stolen from the housing and safety of
US soldiers. Trump continues to amass debt
at a hugely increasing rate, but it's still not enough. The only good news is, Trump's fake
emergency is going to be challenged many different ways, so it may be a long time before he ruins the
- Despite Fox "News" successfully causing several previous government shut downs, and Trump usually doing whatever they tell him to do because, lets

- A federal judge has ruled that Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, intentionally lied to the FBI when he was supposed to be answering questions about his
involvement with Russia.
- Thanks to misinformed anti-vaxxers, children are getting measles again. While they may think it's a harmless childhood disease, the reality it, does severe damage to the infected child's immune system which
takes years to recover. This is especially concerning when you realize that the Trump administration has
prominent anti-vaxxers (including Trump himself) who are literally calling for the diseases that have killed millions of children
to be brought back.
- Yet another one of Trump's appointed goons has called it quite. William "Brock" Long has resigned as director of FEMA after failing to properly handle hurricanes and wildfires and, as is typical among
Republicans, a lot of corruption.
- Trump has again lied to US troops and the American people in general. He claimed that South Korea agreed to pay $500,000,000 more for US protection, but, not only has a deal not been met, the current
number on the table is only $70,300,000.

- More info about Paul Manafort's clandestine meeting with former Russian military intelligence staffer Konstantin Kilimnik has gone public. The two met in a building owned by the Kushner family on August 2,
2016, just two weeks before Manafort resigned as Trump's campaign chairman due to Ukrainian bribery allegations.

- Trump has once again incited his crowd of thugs into physical violence against the media.
- Trump picked Barry Myers to run the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Myers has no education in climate or weather whatsoever, but
he is a lawyer, so that should help him understand ocean currents and atmospheric pressure. He also seems to understand sexual harassment because, when Myers was running AccuWeather, the company had a serious
problem abusing its female employees, and the company just lost a lawsuit and must now pay out almost
$300,000. Of course, Myers is still seeking nomination, and why shouldn't he? Sexually abusing women is basically mandatory for the Trump

his assistant answered my questions more fully. Basically, there is no obvious reason why my the cartilage around my hip is damaged other than the shape of my bones. So, it's not really my fault, but the
problem won't ever go away because the damage is done, and will continue to be done because of my body's shape. I can do exercises and stretches to strengthen the area to alleviate some of the pain, but that's
about it. Surgery should only be an option if it gets worse in the future, but the exercises should prevent that.

shutdown. Financial experts have tallied up all the damage done to the government during the shutdown and estimate that it cost the American taxpayer
over $6,000,000,000, slightly more than Trump was demanding for his
useless border wall.
- The government shutdown is at least temporarily over, but it's important to remember just how bad and
how dangerous things got right up until the very end.

bend over backwards
for Trump, despite the fact that they're losing support with Americans.
- A couple weeks ago, without warning even to our allies, Trump said he was going to pull US troops out of Syria and Afghanistan because we defeated ISIS and the Taliban. Of course, even the Pentagon admits
that ISIS is still a threat in Syria and the Taliban is still
killing people in Afghanistan.
- I hope you weren't planning on traveling any time soon. Trump's government shutdown has no end in sight, and since TSA agents aren't getting paid,
8% of them are no longer showing up for work, with that number expected to grow as the shutdown drags on.

- Ever since Trump hired Rudy Giuliani as his lawyer, Giuliani has assured the press hundreds of times that there was no collusion between the Trump administration and Russia, but yesterday he disregarded
all those statements and claimed he has never once said there wasn't any collusion.
- Over the past two years, 22 immigrants have died while in an ICE jail. And it
isn't the old and sick, many of them were younger, a couple were children, and one was transgender. This is the same organization that routinely tries to deport American citizens, who are guilty until proven
innocent, their most recent attempt was Michigan-born Jilmar Ramos-Gomez, a US Marine veteran who spent three days in an ICE jail before they
finally released him.
- Every US defense organization agrees that Russia directly and purposefully interfered in the last two major American elections. This is why sanctions were placed on the country, but Republicans, knowing
that their side won because of the Russian interference, is siding with Russia and refusing to
enforce the sanctions.
- A federal judge tells American government workers that, if they want to keep their jobs, they must continue working
- The Trump administration has been caught in two more corruption scandals, the first is violating the US Constitution by using his status as president to illegally profit off
his private businesses, the second is paying his lawyer to hire a tech firm
to artificially inflate his standings in an online poll.
- Racists never think they're racists. Case in point, Republican Steve King.
- Trump continues to have some of the lowest approval ratings for a president in history, but now, even his racist Christian base
- Coal is a dying energy source, and while Trump isn't the reason it's dying, he is the reason coal miners are not transitioning into a viable career
- After Republican John Engler publicly announced that women who were raped are enjoying their spotlight, the MSU board met to terminate his employment. They never should have hired him to begin with, but
hopefully they will learn from their mistake. But, before he could be fired, Engler resigned in a letter that makes no mention of his horrible comments, but instead is filled with self-congratulations and
blames his loss of job on Democrats.

- With the government shutdown continuing to have negative repercussions, Republicans are demanding that 50,000 more government employees return to work, but they will

- After firing his previous hand-picked Attorney General, noted racist Jeff Sessions, Trump's new pick, Republican William Barr, says he will not recuse himself on Trump's Russian probe (despite already
writing publicly that the FBI probe was a sham and Trump should be above the law)
and, if appointed, might make sure that the results of the FBI probe
never made public. Naturally, the Republican-controlled Senate is still expected to confirm him.
- Trump is probably too stupid to be purposely working for Russia, but he's just stupid
enough to be inadvertently working for Russia.
- Republican John Engler, acting president of MSU, just said that the MSU students who were sexually assaulted by Larry Nassar and are suing the school for protecting him are enjoying the spotlight that

- By keeping the government shutdown because his ego won't let him accept the fact that most American hate both him and his wall, Trump is ruining America and the
lives of Americans. In fact, Republican Kevin Hassett, Chief Economic Adviser to the White House, explained that unpaid furloughed government employees
should be happy because they're basically on vacation.
- Although it is a common stereotype to picture a poor black person on welfare, the majority of welfare recipients in the USA are actually white. And, while it shouldn't have been, this was
news to Trump.
- Rather than dispose of their waste properly, the US military often employs companies (in the past, headed by Dick Cheney) to create huge trash fires to burn all their refuse including tires, medical waste,
batteries, plastic, and many other toxic materials that spew forth carcinogens. Despite going against safety regulations, these burn piles are often placed just on the outskirts of camps where soldiers breathe
in the fumes all day. As you would expect, many soldiers have developed cancer because of this, and, they want to hold the companies responsible for placing the burn piles dangerously close to military camps.
Unfortunately, the Supreme Court has a majority of Republicans Justices, and they refuse to hold these companies responsible for their negligent behavior that will surely result in the death of
countless US veterans. Just like Agent Orange before it, the US
military poisons its soldiers and never accepts responsibility.
- Rand Paul, one of the most outspoken Republicans against socialized medicine, is going to Canada where socialized medicine is the law of the land to avoid America's
crappy capitalistic health care. Although he argues that the clinic he's going to is a
private clinic, the problem still remains, how is it that Canada has better clinics than all of the tens of thousands of clinics in the USA?

- Well, he did it! Donald Trump has shut down the government for the longest stretch in the entire
history of our country. And, while the American government now refuses to pay their employees, and Republicans fought to
not even give them back pay, American scientific progress has
slowed to a crawl and Canadian citizens
are buying our meals. Even when Republicans had full control over the American government for two straight years, they couldn't get funding for
a useless border wall, and now, it seems, Trump's only option is declaring a state of emergency so he can rob Americans, and he's not at all
wishy-washy about that.
- Donald Trump has sexually assaulted dozens of women and has a history of cheating on his numerous wives. Being such a good Christian, he also doesn't want women to have access to birth control, but his
most recent attempt to eliminate access was put on hold by a federal judge.
- Why has Trump been so secretive with his talks with Russia, even to the point of confiscating the notes of his Russian interpreter and ordering him not to discuss anything
- Nashville? New Orleans? What's the difference?
- Trump has threatened to devastate the economy of a US ally. What's he going to do, become their president?

- In 1890, around 1,000 US troops slaughtered 300 Native Americans, most of whom were unarmed women and children, on an Indian reservation near
Wounded Knee Creek. One hundred years later, the US government finally apologized for the massive slaughter. I bring this up, because Trump
just made light of the slaughter in order to make fun of Elizabeth Warren.

- In addition to being the most dishonest, most corrupt, and least experienced, Trump will soon be able to add the
longest government shutdown to his growing list of superlatives.
- Homeland Security made a salient point regarding the futility of Trump's border wall by using a hacksaw to cut a
man-sized hole in it.
- Probably seeing the writing on the wall, Trump has currently backed down from declaring a national emergency to rob Americans for his
useless border wall.
- As Trump is being sued for turning government employees into literal slaves,
the Coast Guard gave their as of now unpaid employees some helpful tips on how to survive Trump's government shutdown:

- When a woman has a miscarriage she is devastated and vulnerable, but she is also at risk of death until the dead fetus is expelled. Most miscarriages occur early in the pregnancy, and to not require

extremely difficult for women to get it because Republicans don't trust

- Trump continues to ruin the nation because Democrats won't give him billions
of taxpayer dollars to pay for a pointless wall that he promised Mexico would pay for, but now
lies that he didn't. Instead of fixing our
nation's crumbling infrastructure or updating our schools, Trump wants to waste
billions on a wall that experts say will never work. And, during the shutdown, 30,000 Federal workers are expected continue working without pay or lose their job. They can't strike or unionize because Federal
workers do not receive the same protections as private sector employees. Basically, Trump has turned 30,000 Americans
into slaves. Oh yeah, and with the government shutdown, your food is
no longer being inspected for safety, but an attraction in a Trump hotel
is still open.
- When a free country allows a tyrant to become their leader, they suddenly realize how many hard lines they have to draw to limit the power of the

- Trump put as much effort into planning his public address as he does keeping his
businesses from going bankrupt, so it was little more than a tirade of lies last night and called it a speech. From his ramblings it's clear that he won't end his government shut down, and why would he, it
doesn't affect him, it only
hurts the poor.
- Trump confidently said he was pulling US troops out of Syria and Afghanistan causing a huge fallout, not just among the American people, but also world wide, and even in his own cabinet. This has caused
him to not only change tack, but also lie that he never said it to begin with.
- Trump lies saying he can not only relate to those government workers that his shutdown has put out of a job, but also that they want him to put them
out of work.

- The Republican's useless border wall is extremely unpopular with only 38% of Americans in favor of

taxpayers so he can build the pointless wall

- The Catholic order Opus Dei is paying out close to a million dollars because C. John McCloskey, a priest who coaches Republicans, loves to commit
- Despite their shutdown of the government, Republicans are reassuring Americans that their tax refunds will be processed and returned on time, even though 70,000 employees at the IRS are no longer working.

- As Republicans begin to see hatred from their own base because Trump shutdown the government, they've issued a compromise bill. They still want $5,700,000,000 of taxpayer money to build a useless wall that
Trump promised Mexico would pay for, but, in return, they will let some refugee and migrant children out of prison and provide aide to people who are dying. This is what a Republican compromise looks like.
A party that is almost entirely Christian is only willing to help dying people if they can
- Even as 800,000 federal workers are furloughed or continue to work without pay, totaling $1,400,000,000 in
unpaid salaries, Trump was still all set to increase the pay of those in his already over-paid administration.
But, after journalists made this information available there was a huge backlash and even Trump wasn't too stupid to see how bad that would make him look, so he finally held off
on his own raises.
- And hey, you weren't planning on getting your tax returns back, were you?
- To prove how much he loves the troops, President "bone spurs" Trump called retired general Stanley McChrystal a "dog" with a
"big dumb mouth."
- Trump is still buddy-buddy with the murderous tyrant of Russia.
- First, Trump shutdown the government because they wouldn't give him money for his useless border wall, and now, he wants to shutdown television to lie to Americans about his
useless border wall.
