CONGRESSMAN KEN BUCK AT 3:05 We'll hear from him on the shutdown, being in the minority and more.
WHY DON'T SOME MEN WEAR COATS IN THE WINTER? This article asks a question I've had for ages: what's up with men who don't wear coats in the winter? Seriously, why? I saw a guy running when it was nine degrees with shorts on. I wanted to yell at him that he was an idiot.
THERE'S NO HOST FOR THE OSCARS AND MEH This is a big deal that shouldn't be a big deal. As of late this has been an utterly thankless job so the elimination of the host for the Oscars doesn't really merit the crocodile tears some are giving it. Who cares? Give out the awards and call it a night.
MASCULINITY IS NOW A MENTAL ISSUE At least that's what the American Psychological Association says when they declare "traditional masculinity" harmful to men and boys. Seriously. What is "traditional masculinity"?
“The main thrust of the subsequent research is that traditional masculinity – marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression – is, on the whole, harmful,” reads the news release by the famed association.
So guys, you being you is now considered harmful.
POKER PLAYER CRAPS OUT OF BATHROOM BET I sort of love this story. Two poker players made a bet that one of them couldn't stay in a dark bathroom in isolation for 30 days. There was $100,000 on the line. Did he make it? Sort of. Read the whole thing here.
OUR NEW ATTORNEY GENERAL IS READY TO SPEND YOUR MONEY SUING EREBODY And I sure hope he signs us on to every stupid lawsuit against the Trump Administration and I hope he loses them all so when he runs for re election we can demand an accounting of how much money he wasted on partisan BS. This should be fun to watch.
NO, COLORADANS DON'T CARE THAT GOVERNOR POLIS IS GAY And this column takes the media to task for the incessant reminders that he's gay. I didn't vote against him because he's gay, I voted against him because I strongly disagree with his policies. I'm sure the people who swept him into office didn't give much thought to Polis' husband. It would be nice if we could all just focus on what he does and judge him by that alone.
NEIGHBORS CALL THE COPS BECAUSE A KID DOES CHORES And OMG this story makes me really, really angry. A mom posted an ad for her nine year old daughter as a "mother's helper" on her neighborhood website. Six HOURS later the cops showed up to make sure this mother wasn't running a sweatshop. I. Am. Not. Making. This. Up. Read it here. Our country is done for.
TODAY'S VIDEO IS ABOUT GETTING OUT OF DEBT And I straight up LOVE Dave Ramsey so of course I have to share a Ramsey video. Dave is right when he says debt is slavery. It's totally worth every minute you spend watching it.
THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST POSSIBLE THING THAT COULD HAPPEN IF THE GOVERNMENT STAYS SHUT DOWN And it's truly full of gloom and doom and you can read it here.
I'M SORRY Y'ALL BUT THIS IS JUST TACKY Now Frontier Airlines is allowing flight attendants to accept tips. This completes the transition from trained safety professional who also serves food and drinks to waitress in the sky.
AN ESSAY ON WHY THE DEMOCRATS DON'T LOVE AOC And it's only partly a bit tongue in cheek as it is written by a GOP buy I know from Kentucky. It's still accurate though.
THOSE SOCIALISTS NEED TO START HAVING BABIES OR THIS HOUSE OF CARDS WILL COLLAPSE Because we are not currently having enough babies to replace people dying. And we're missing it by a lot, not a little.
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR Because Meghan Markle is reportedly having a tough time adapting to royal life. I'm not being sarcastic when I say be careful what you wish for.
