CALIFORNIA IS JUST A REALLY STUPID STATE Because in the same state where a young woman lost her life when an illegal immigrant allegedly found a gun and it "just went off" you may soon be unable to get a plastic straw with your soda. Yep. They are outlawing straws. And you know who this law targets? Waiters who may accidentally give you a straw when you didn't want one. Seriously.
THE NEW INTERN IS HERE! THE NEW INTERN IS HERE! After what feels like nine years of paperwork, please welcome our new intern Victor to the show! We will play "Get to Know the New Kid" later today.
MORE LEFT ON LEFT ACTION I am finding all this push back against SJW culture coming from the Left very interesting. This article from a mostly reliable progressive author rails pretty hard against a culture she has been an active part of for some time. It seems now that people are using the same language against THEM that they've been using against, say, ME for years, they don't like it. But unlike me, who has been accused of whining when I read a hateful email on the air, they have some shred of moral Left Wing Authority to push back. I sure hope they win, but mostly I think they won't.
SOUTH AFRICA'S LARGEST OCEANSIDE CITY MAY RUN OUT OF WATER Can you imagine Miami Beach running out of water? Or Los Angeles? But it's happening in Johannesburg, where a drought has been so severe they are thinking of turning off the water to EVERYONE in the city. This should go well. It certainly doesn't help Africa's image as a non-sh*thole destination.
ONE MEMBER OF THE PRESS BLATANTLY ACTED TO PROTECT CANDIDATE OBAMA By not publish a photo of the young Senator with Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan, who is a complete racist and anti-Semite. I put this here now so you can see it but it's not going to surprise any of you who watched how the media covered this guy from the beginning. But I'm sure it's Trump's fault no one trusts the media anymore.
ASTRONOMY NERDS, LISTEN UP, WE'VE GOT A BAD MOON RISING NEXT WEEK This is actually super cool. Next week we get treated to a "super blue blood moon". Oooooh, sounds terrifying, right? It's not. Here's what that means.
So, a "supermoon" is when a full moon occurs at the same time as its pedigree, the closest point of the moon's orbit with Earth. The result: the moon appears larger than normal and NASA is predicting this one will be 14% brighter than usual.
Chances are you have used the phrase "once in a blue moon" -- but have you ever wondered where it came from? The well-known idiom actually refers to the rare instance when there is a second supermoon in a calendar month. The first supermoon of 2018 -- which took place on New Year's Day -- was previously described by NASA as the "biggest and brightest" one expected for the entire year.
Then completing this "lunar trifecta" is the "blood" element. Although it does not have a scientific definition, a "blood moon" occurs during a lunar eclipse when faint red sunbeams peak out around the edges of the moon, giving it a reddish, copper color.
OBAMACARE SPENT $23 MILLION BUCKS COVERING DEAD PEOPLE In this case, it's not even necessarily fraud, it's that the government didn't bother to check and see if people were alive. You read that right. They just re-enrolled dead people and paid premium on policies for people WHO WERE DEAD. But please tell me again how we need single payer?
VENEZUELA'S FINAL DEATH THROES ARE PAINFUL TO WATCH, BUT WE SHOULD ALL BE WATCHING The next time some college moron tries to tell you how wonderful socialism is please ask them explain what is happening in Venezuela. If they try to explain it away as mismanagement of a perfect system, ask them what they would do differently. Venezuela is a hellhole, but Maduro is going to be re elected by doling out food for votes and imprisoning his opponents. This is how socialism always ends up, people. ALWAYS. With children starving to death and political opponents in prison.
THE YOUTH WON'T EAT GMOS BUT THEY ENGRAVE CANCEROUS SUBSTANCES UNDER THEIR SKIN I am not a fan of tattoos, but hey, if it makes you happy, go nuts. But do so in an informed manner. I'm guessing that many gmo eschewing, organic only, whole 30 doing folks don't know any of this information before they get a tattoo. But now you do.
COMMUTING SUCKS, AND THIS VIDEO SAYS IT MIGHT KILL YOU
DID YOU REALLY THINK WE'D GET THE WALL WITHOUT GIVING UP SOMETHING? It's preposterous to me that any thinking person who understands the structure of government would think that a border wall and greatly enhanced border protection would come without some sort of sacrifice. It seems that Trump is willing to allow 1.8 million DACA folks a path to citizenship in exchange for a good bit of money for the wall. Trump is also asking for an end to chain migration and the lottery system for immigration, along with more resources for in country enforcement of immigration laws. The Democrats are going to have come out strongly in favor of illegal immigrants over citizens on this, which may not be a great position in the near future. I personally think this is just a starting point for Trump to negotiate from and this should be very interesting to watch!
THE FRENCH SURE DO LOVE THEIR NUTELLA And perhaps they took a page from our 'Merica playbook when they started a riot when it went on sale. Enjoy another country acting like the idiots on Black Friday here.
DON'T YOU THINK YOU SHOULD CLEAN UP YOUR DIGITAL FOOTPRINT? It's not hard at all and I just deleted my entire Google History just for fun! Watch this.
ARE TODAY'S WESTERNS REALLY TRULY WESTERNS? Our friend Christian Toto ask the question about today's new westerns. Are they really westerns in classical sense? The answer is no. It doesn't mean they can't be good movies, but they aren't the same as John Wayne made.
