  • Narcissists and Psychopaths Are More Likely to Refuse to Wear Masks, Says New Research

    Two recent studies looked at the relationship between personality traits and reactions to restrictions put in place to slow the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19. Researchers found that people possessing so-called "Dark Triad" traits—narcissism, psychopathy and Machiavellianism—were less likely to comply with restrictions or engage in preventative measures against the pandemic. However, researchers also emphasized the small role personality traits have in the overall response to pandemic restrictions, like face-mask mandates and social-distancing requirements. Both studies, which, combined, surveyed more than a thousand people in Poland, were published in the peer-reviewed academic journal Personality and Individual Differences. In "Adaptive and...

  • What a waste: Britons dump tons of rubbish, clothes 'recycling' on the street in coronavirus lockdown clear-outs

    The streets of Britain have become swamped with tons of rubbish and clothes to be recycled in coronavirus quarantine clear-outs. Councils have warned of a 'wave of waste' coming from homes across the country. As most of the nation is in quarantine, families are generating much more food leftovers. And many are using the spare time to carry out home and garden makeovers, creating even more rubbish and recycling. On top of that, people are even dumping items outside charity shops building mountains of clothes and bric-a-brac despite the fact they are not open. Cases of fly-tipping across Britain...

Have hearing this morning on the phone at 7:30 a.m. - any advice from knowledgeable Freepers? My brother, who is a manager, said to stay calm and just stick to the facts. So, will do at least that.

    The so-called November 4 protests, which took place in cities across the country today, hosted by a nascent protest group called Refuse Fascism, will likely be remembered more for what they did not look like, than what they did. Far-right conspiracies had morphed the event into a fantasy world of unrealistic expectations.

    Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) gave a bridge burning speech on the Senate floor after news broke that he will not seek re-election in 2018. According to Daily Beast reporter Andrew Desiderio, every lawmaker who attended the speech , both Democrats and Republicans, stood and clapped for Flake — except Rand Paul.   The KY lawmaker didn’t see the virtue in trashing Trump as tax reform is on the table. Trump hater and RINO Jeff Flake trashed the Republican party and POTUS Trump on his way out the door! “All stood and clapped after Flake’s speech—except @RandPaul,” tweeted Desiderio.Good riddance! We don’t need Democrat...
  • Former CIA chief: Officials Should Refuse To Fire Mueller If Trump Asks

    The Hill ^ | 07/25/17 | Julia Manchester
    Former CIA Director John Brennan said he believes if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, officials should refuse to do so. Those orders would be inconsistent with the duties of the executive branch, he said. First of all, I think its the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry out some of these orders that are again inconsistent with what this country is all about, Brennan told CNNs Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum. I would just hope this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans and Democrats are...
  • Texas may not restore lost abortion clinics despite ruling

    AUSTIN, Texas Long wait times for abortions and lengthy drives to clinics are likely to continue in Texas for months and maybe years despite the U.S. Supreme Court striking down restrictions that since 2013 have drastically reduced the number of providers statewide. Texas lost more than half of its 41 abortion clinics in the three years since former Republican Gov. Rick Perry signed a sweeping anti-abortion law that justices largely dismantled in a 5-3 ruling Monday. The decision amounted to the Supreme Court's strongest defense of abortion rights in a generation and could imperil similar restrictions in other states....

    American-Statesman County clerks can refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples based on religious objections to gay marriage, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said Sunday. Paxton noted that clerks who refuse to issue licenses can expect to be sued, but added that numerous lawyers stand ready to assist clerks defending their religious beliefs, in many cases without charge. Paxton said Fridays flawed opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court, which overturned bans against same-sex marriage in Texas and other states, placed religious people in conflict between following their faith and the U.S. Constitution

    Green Sky workers being told that the recycling plant is closing. A prominent Clifton-based recycling company abruptly closed its doors on Friday, informing more than 100 employees that they had worked their final day while dozens of North Jersey towns scrambled to forge temporary arrangements with other collectors.

The company’s Clifton employees on Friday were...

    COMMONERS President Obama went for a walk last week, and even mingled with some commoners beyond the White House walls. The surprise occasion was (shockingly) captured on camera and widely disseminated; the White House posted the raw video here. Most of the commoners were thrilled to encounter the president walking amongst them. One woman was so excited, and remarked that it was like the best day of my life. One bro fist pumped while yelling: America! Freedom! Peace! Hope! And charity! [sic] But not everyone was so impressed. At the 2:41 mark, you can see some disgruntled workers who are...
