    A dance party scheduled for November 3 in San Francisco has spurred outrage among Bay Area residents due to its "Day of the Dead" theme and what some perceive as a perversion of Mexican traditions.
  • Plausible deniability: The drug that President Trump can’t stop abusing (Compost projecting again)

    Plausible deniability is a politician’s best friend. It’s something politicians seek to maintain in all circumstances by giving vanilla statements that offer future wiggle room. For President Trump, though, plausible deniability is a way of life. The ability to pretend he didn’t actually say what he seems to have just said is something Trump has weaponized and exploited. It’s something he wields against his opponents in an effort to constantly muddy the waters and rally his supporters against a common enemy. The controversy in recent days over Trump’s tweets shows exactly what he’s doing: He is constantly trolling by saying...
  • Reporter Arrested For Asking Donald Trump Aides A Question

    Dan Heyman, a veteran health reporter for the Public News Service, was arrested on Tuesday night for repeatedly asking a question to two Donald Trump aides on healthcare that he believed hadn’t been answered. The incident unfolded at the state Capitol building in Charleston, West Virginia, where Dan Heyman simply wanted to ask White House adviser Kellyanne Conway and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price whether or not domestic violence would count as a preexisting condition under the new health care bill that the Republicans want to replace Obamacare. But after asking the above duo the question, Dan Heyman...
  • Director Judd Apatow: Living with Trump as President Is Like Getting Raped, Murdered

    <p>Do rape “jokes” ever count as comedy? Apparently they do when Trump is involved. Liberal Hollywood writer and producer of films like Bridesmaids and Anchorman Judd Apatow actually compared living with Trump as President to getting raped, during a stand up comedy show in Los Angeles Saturday. Apatow, like many in Hollywood, seems to be unusually upset with the election calling him a “madman” and a “sociopath” in an previous unhinged rant.</p>

    Actress Sarah Silverman called for a military coup against President Trump on Wednesday night in the midst of violent riots in Berkeley, California. In a screaming all-capital-letters tweet exhorted her almost 10 million followers to “wake up & join the resistance,” a term from World War II that anti-Trump rioters have used to define themselves. She then outlined her preferred scenario for the violent overthrow of the legitimately elected government, still in all capital letters.

    A majority of Americans disapprove of President Trump's work during his first week in the White House - breaking a record of how long it generally takes the majority of Americans to disapprove of a president. On Saturday, 51 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump, a Gallup poll found. The poll tracks daily approval ratings for Trump by surveying 1,500 Americans. It took just eight days to reach these ratings. It took at least several hundred days for the majority of Americans to disapprove of past presidents.

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | January 03, 2017 | The Editorial Board
    One of 2016’s most spectacular examples of government dysfunction was the U.S. Senate’s outrageous refusal to consider President Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to replace the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. That dereliction of duty by the Republican majority not only denied a sitting president his constitutional prerogative to fill vacancies in the court (so that the appointment would go instead to a hoped-for Republican successor). It also prevented the court from resolving a handful of cases because of a 4-4 split and probably discouraged the justices from accepting other cases because of the possibility of a...

    Women have been rapidly climbing the employment and wage ladders in recent decades. But only a small fraction have made it to the top rungs — and their progress may be slowing. New research shows that after making big strides in the 1980s and ’90s, the number of women breaking into the top 1 percent of earners has stalled. Women account for only 16 percent of the 1 percent, a number that has remained essentially flat over the past decade, according to a paper by three economists. And they account for only 11 percent of the top 0.1 percent of...
  • Be Careful What You Wish For. Impeach Trump And You Get Pence

    Put this in the category of be careful what you wish for. The instant that Trump won the White House, the chatter about impeaching him has been non-stop. The reasons many legal scholars, ethics experts, and political analysts give boil down to this. He has business dealings with foreign governments, most notably Russia, his family management arrangement still presents business conflicts, his possible violation of the Emoluments Clause, which prohibits presidents from buying influence with federal officials or receiving special treatment, and influence peddling and gift taking from foreign governments. These are all sticky points that Trump hasn’t done much...

    The American people deserve to know that the outcome of this election is actually valid We are tired of hearing the pundits say that the election is over and there is nothing we can do when there are significant questions raised by the recounts that have been going on in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, as well issues raised in a recent lawsuit seeking a recount in Florida. Hillary Clinton has garnered almost 3 million more popular votes than Donald Trump. The polls and exit polls in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania showed Clinton was the winner. The recount efforts by the...

    Green Party candidate Jill Stein has announced her intention to request a recount in three swing states: Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. These are the same states Hillary Clinton was urged to request recounts in by a computer scientist who suggested voting machines in those states may have been hacked by Russia. Stein doesn’t mention Clinton but does say the votes should be recounted because of concerns about foreign government hacking and unreliable voting machines. Stein’s full announcement was posted on her campaign website. It reads in part: The Stein/Baraka Green Party Campaign is launching an effort to ensure the integrity...

    5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: "HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!" The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don't. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he's president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we'll continue to have presidents we didn't elect and didn't want. You live in a country where a majority of its citizens have...

    WASHINGTON — President Obama said he has told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the Israeli leader’s remarks in the closing days of his re-election campaign had upended the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and ran counter to the very nature of Israeli democracy, an unusually forceful and public condemnation of the top official of a vital United States ally. In his first public comments on the matter since Mr. Netanyahu’s victory in Tuesday’s elections, Mr. Obama said the prime minister’s pre-election statement that there would be no Palestinian state on his watch had all but foreclosed the chance for negotiations to resolve...

    DAYTON-- Identical women's and men's products are being sold at different price points in Ohio. The phenomenon is known as "pink tax," and we put some products to the test. One-a-day "Pro Edge" vitamins, 50 count, are packed in the same sized box just different colors; the women's vitamins cost $9.49, while the men's cost $7.99. Up&Up women's shave gel for dry skin relief costs $2.39, while the identical product for men, packaged in a blue cartridge rather than pink, costs $1.87. The Gillette Fusion men's razor with five blades and packaged with two extra cartridges costs $10.79, while the...

    It’s fascinating to watch the national media slowly come to realize just how fundamentally dishonest Gov. Scott Walker can be. Walker’s likable, low-key personality makes a good first impression. But it didn’t take many in Wisconsin long to recognize the double-talking radical extremist behind that bland persona. That’s why Wisconsin may now be the angriest, most politically polarized state in the nation. Now the rest of the country is beginning to see why. Walker may seem like a wide-eyed, Midwestern innocent next to crude political thugs like former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, but that’s...

    It was a year ago - the Sunday after Super Bowl XLVIII at 8pmET - that Michael Sam turned speculation into reality: One of college football's best players, and a top NFL prospect, was gay. In the coming months he was showered with praise. Eric Dickerson would offer him congratulations. Michael Irvin would call him his friend. Robert Quinn welcomed him to the Rams. Even the President of the United States, Barack Obama himself, would laud him.

    Spouting off to an empty chair at the 2012 Republican National Convention, Clint Eastwood looked as if he were slipping into doddering dementia, but he’s shrewder and more focused than ever in his Iraq War picture American Sniper. It’s a cracker­jack piece of filmmaking, a declaration that he’s not yet ready to be classified as an Old Master, that he can out-Bigelow Kathryn Bigelow. Morally, though, he has regressed from the heights of Letters From Iwo Jima (2006). In more ways than one, the Iraq occupation is seen through the sight of a high-powered rifle. The movie is scandalously blinkered....
