JORDAN PETERSON IS SUPER SMART AND HE'S GOT RULES And this list of 40 life rules would make the entire world magical if only we all followed them. Do you have a life rule that you never waver from?
THREE QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK YOUR CHILDREN EVERY NIGHT There is a lot in this I love, and not only because these are three great questions to ask your little ones, but because these are the kinds of questions which inspire actual conversation, which kids need. I'm doing this with Q starting tonight.
JUST IN CASE YOU CAN'T GET MURDERED ON CRAIGLIST, HERE COMES AMAZON! This is a TERRIBLE idea. Just AWFUL. Amazon Key is a service that allows you to let COMPLETE STRANGERS into your home to deliver groceries or something. But I'm sure nothing will go wrong.
IF YOU LIKE CHARTER SCHOOLS IN DOUGCO, PLEASE VOTE ACCORDINGLY As one slate has been endorsed by the anti-charter school American Federation of Teachers (hereby referred to as "the union") to the tune of $600,000, and the Elevate Slate has repeatedly stated their commitment to charter schools and school choice. I'm not the only one here, State House Representative Patrick Neville feels the same way I do.
POOR NATALIE TYSDALE She ate a super hot tortilla chip on the Channel 2 Daybreak show and things didn't go well.
AND NOW HERE'S A BENGAL CAT AND AN OTTER WHO ARE BEST FRIENDS.
NOW FOR THE HARD NEWS....
VENEZUELA LOOKS LIKE THEY FINALLY MAY DEFAULT ON THEIR BOND PAYMENTS And let's not forget that Venezuela is sitting on one of the largest petroleum reserves in the world. So why can't they make their bond payments? Because socialism is a constantly failing system and it's their turn to prove it once again. What would happen if they did default? Read a pretty simple explanation here.
NFL RATINGS ARE STILL CONTINUING TO SLIDE BUT I'M SURE IT'S NOT THE PROTESTS. NOPE. That seems to be the attitude of the NFL and the owners, who say they can't curtail the player's free speech (unless that speech is expressed on Instagram when it can be used to sit a guy for a week). But as ratings are down nearly 20% from 2015, they better get their collective acts together.
DEPRESSION LEADS TO A SHORTER LIFE. A new Canadian study evaluated the life spans of people who had depression over three different periods of time. Men's health outcomes negatively affected life span in every time frame studied, and seemed to begin affecting women the same way in the 90's. With all we know about depression and all the various options we have for treating it, please take care of yourselves and those you love and get help if you or a loved one is struggling.
HAVE YOU CUT THE CORD YET? Many people have, and by cord I mean your cable cord. Comcast, AT+T and Charter are all reporting loss of subscribers as consumers change the way they consume content. Have you cut the cord and what, if any challenges have you had in doing so? I'm interested.
HERE IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF WHY WOMEN DON'T REPORT BAD BEHAVIOR BY POWERFUL MEN And it's in a story ripping apart the supposed "champion of women" Lisa Bloom, who made the baffling decision to represent slimeball Harvey Weinstein. She since quit him, but not until she got hella blowback for her choice. My guess is Harvey's check was too big to turn down and the chance to get her face all over the media was too tempting. In this account, it is alleged that Bloom offered Ronan Farrow Rose McGowan's sexual history in an attempt to discredit her as an accuser. Nice job, "champion of women" for helping people understand why women don't come forward against powerful men.
BLACK PASTOR IS KICKED OUT OF GYM FOR SUPPORTING TRUMP Not just kicked out for the day, his membership was revoked permanently. Why? Because an employee whose ego outstrips his intelligence overheard said pastor doing a phone interview supportive of Trump.
THE CHAIR OF THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE HAS NO IDEA WHAT'S IN THE CONSTITUTION When it comes to the Electoral College anyway.
THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION USED JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SETTLEMENTS TO FUND LIBERAL CAUSES Which is no surprise to anyone who was paying attention to the Obama era rule that allowed companies to pay
extortion settlements to outside companies, approved by the DoJ, instead of to the government. It was a slick system to shore up liberal friendly agencies with quick cash they did nothing to earn. Now we know that it wasn't a coincidink that ONLY liberal causes benefited, there was a concerted effort to PREVENT any conservative agencies from getting any funds. Again, this is my shocked face.
