DHS reducing its capability to handle foreign meddling with our elections

With each fresh proven allegation about foreign interference in our elections, you'd think we'd be more alert rather than less. No. You might even think such activity would be viewed as a serious threat to national security (unlike a procession of poor non-white people wanting to enter our country). Also no. This sort of neglect … Continue reading DHS reducing its capability to handle foreign meddling with our elections

GOP administrations 38 times the criminal convictions of Dems over 55 years

Whether or not you agreed with President Obama's views, there were no top officials facing corruption or other criminal accusations. This administration? A different story. Turns out the contrast between Republicans and Democrats can be seen as standard over the course of at least 55 years. https://rantt.com/gop-admins-had-38-times-more-criminal-convictions-than-democrats-1961-2016/ GOP Admins Had 38 Times More Criminal Convictions … Continue reading GOP administrations 38 times the criminal convictions of Dems over 55 years

Superb, detailed statement of why the Brits (and a few other people) don’t like Trump

This showed up in my Facebook feed. I have no idea who Nate White is, whether he wrote this or not, or who posted it. What I do know is that it very accurately describes Trump as a human being and thus the reasons why many people dislike him. Someone asked "Why do some British … Continue reading Superb, detailed statement of why the Brits (and a few other people) don’t like Trump

The most recent State of the Union address contained many words not heretofore spoken by a President before a joint session of Congress. Altho the word choices this time surprised with their baseness, Presidents have a habit of expanding on the language used before. This article is primarily graphics but it's worth clicking thru to … Continue reading State of the Union language is a periodic portrait of our times

US isn’t the only country with a brutal immigration policy — check out Australia

The current administration's separation of families and expanding detention facilities run by private prison operators are definitely appalling. But Australia's approach isn't any better, just customized for its views and circumstances. The irony of a detainee's book receiving a top price -- particularly when it was written on WhatsApp -- is limitless.

Device for women’s sexual pleasure stripped of award at CES while male-focused trash was just fine thank you

Bias much? I've read several articles about this award revocation of an award and can find no legitimate justification other than misogyny. Given how women's bodies are used continually for advertising, how women are urged to do everything possible to massage their body into shape to please men, and the overwhelming presence of largely male-oriented … Continue reading Device for women’s sexual pleasure stripped of award at CES while male-focused trash was just fine thank you

Unnoticed, but important, things the federal government does

Do you care about the privacy of your personal data held by the federal government or do you want to engage in a secure transaction with a federal agency? Increasingly, that's simply not going to be possible. So many anecdotes of people who didn't realize the government would (a) shut down, and (b) stay shut. … Continue reading Unnoticed, but important, things the federal government does
