    ....It’s no secret that the ruling class in America despises the country class. If you’re one of those people who don’t live in coastal cities and subscribe to the same worldview as the elite aspirants hoping for a job at a billionaire-backed NGO or an internship that might lead to a job at McKinsey then you’re a deplorable, a CHUD, and definitely racist and whatever bad things are happening to you, your family, and your inland town are your just deserts. One of Trump’s main functions and biggest appeals is that he exposes the occupational elites that are credentialed but...

    Leo Guinan (“he/him”) has bravely and smugly gone public with his decision to blackmail his father for being a Trump supporter. Unless daddy changes his ways, he’ll never see his grandchildren again. Guinan oozes self-righteous hatred. The only good thing about his post is that people were appalled and contemptuous. Guinan describes himself in glowing terms: Trying to share my experiences in a way that might help others. I can change the world. I will change the world. Even if for a single person. He/Him. This wonderful human being wrote a now-viral post entitled, “Today I Gave My Dad A...

    . Rob Roy is the owner of Rob Roy Auto in Salisbury, Massachusetts, and he has a rather unusual hobby. Besides being a businessman, he likes to stir up political drama with some of his homemade signs that he posts outside his shop. He has been doing this for years, but it is his latest choice of signs that seems to be getting him in some hot water. There is no question that Roy is proud of some of the signs that he has posted, including one of his controversial ones, which was a picture of a Confederate flag...
  • You racists need to start learning how to pronounce “Kamala”

    Those of you who watched the unhinged and unfunny performance of Julia Louis-Dreyfus on the final night of the DNC probably caught the “clever” routine she delivered with Andrew Yang. The two of them took turns mispronouncing Vice President Mike Pence’s surname as some sort of takedown on the fact that he had previously mispronounced the first name of his opponent in the upcoming election, Senator Kamala Harris. While that got a few laughs from the liberal audience, some critics chose to read a lot more into the issue of Harris’ name, its origins, and how everyone is supposed to...

    Austin, TX – An Austin bike shop owned in part by Lance Armstrong has announced it will no longer fulfil its lucrative contract keeping the Austin Police Department’s bicycle patrol on two wheels after after three employees complained that officers used their bikes to control violent protesters. Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop, located in downtown Austin, is “the brainchild” of racing legend Armstrong, according to the shop’s website. KXAN reported that the bike shop, which took a Paycheck Protection Program loan of between $150,000 and $350,000 in April, is walking away from a $314,000 contract with the city. The most recent...

    WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The disruption caused by COVID-19 has been incredibly inconvenient for everyone. But for some young adults, the timing of this lockdown has been heartbreaking. The second semester of senior year is usually full of milestones: senior prom, senior trips, and graduation, just to name a few. But high school seniors across the state and country are missing some of these once-in-a-lifetime memories in an effort to stop the spread of Coronavirus. Now, as the cancellations have started, local seniors are struggling to accept that for their class, these rites of passage may never happen. “It’s devastating...

    In the past week, a story that keeps getting written and re-written by young journalists is the stubborn refusal of older Americans to panic about the Wuhan Virus.

    As 1968 began, Paul Ehrlich was an entomologist at Stanford University, known to his peers for his groundbreaking studies of the co-evolution of flowering plants and butterflies but almost unknown to the average person. That was about to change. In May, Ehrlich released a quickly written, cheaply bound paperback, The Population Bomb. Initially it was ignored. But over time Ehrlich’s tract would sell millions of copies and turn its author into a celebrity. It would become one of the most influential books of the 20th century—and one of the most heatedly attacked. The first sentence set the tone: “The battle...

    That’s it. I have heard it all! As a southern person, I say the word “y’all” all the time. It is a conjunction of the words “you” and “all”. I use it for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re male, female, old, young, white, black….In no way, shape, or form is the word racist. That is, unless you’re a liberal I guess. I came across an article calling for the word “y’all” to be banned because thy fee the word is racist. NPC Daily writer Neville Croft wrote, “[A] new hate word is increasingly being used by the alt-right. The...

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. - They’ve watched their parents and friends struggle to pay medical bills. They’ve spent time in Spain, Australia and other countries where people don’t have the same worry. They live at home instead of the college dorm to try to cut down on what they’ll owe in loans. They question whether to have kids in an environment where the effects of climate change are getting worse by the day. The young Bernie Sanders supporters who gathered for a Super Tuesday watch party in Michigan came with reasons both personal and ideological for wanting him to be president....

Scrutinizing the kinds of people who support the candidates may be far more revealing. Who are these starry-eyed young people who cling to their virtual grandpa on steroids, Bernie Sanders?

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue University will offer free tampons and other feminine hygiene products in the campus’ bathrooms in response to student advocates who have been pushing for the move for three years. University President Mitch Daniels on Thursday credited the University Senate, a faculty-led body, for proposing the initiative in a resolution that described feminine hygiene products as a basic necessity that should be in campus restrooms free of charge. Alison Rickert, a junior studying neurobiology and physiology at Purdue, founded The Period Project— an initiative aimed at providing menstrual products to those who need them both in...

    Cambridge University Students' Union has said that having military personnel at their freshers' fair is 'alarming' for attendees and could 'affect' their mental health. Students voted in favour of banning societies from bringing firearms to the annual fairs after union welfare and rights officer Stella Swain suggested those with mental health issues could find their presence 'triggering'. The motion said that the presence of military personnel carrying firearms at the fair indicate 'implicit approval of their use, despite the links between military and firearms and violence on an international scale'.

    Today, the RealCare Baby 3 infant simulator is a fantastically sophisticated, computer-programmed doll that costs up to $1,000 to replace if you lose it. (I know because I had to sign a waiver; Anna’s school has six of them, provided through a grant from a local education foundation.) The student wears a corresponding wristband that logs his or her responses to the baby through a radio frequency identification tag. Then she — and most of the caregivers are female — has to determine what the baby needs, based on distinctly different cries. “Just like a real baby, you eventually kind of can tell — that’s a...

    The powers that be at CNN were in full outrage mode yesterday after Republican Sen. Martha McSally called Manu Raju, one of their congressional correspondents, a “liberal hack,” and refused to answer his questions. After the incident, much of the minimal airtime left over from trashing Donald Trump all day was expended in defense of Raju and the network, which they clearly feel, has been unfairly besmirched. I’ve got two words for them: toughen up. A statement from their PR department said, “It is extremely unbecoming for a U.S. Senator to sink to this level and treat a member of...

    I circle around UCLA’s Moore Hall for the third time. Security officers block each entrance. Police in riot gear patrol the streets. Metal fences wall off the building from protesters, and barricades separate protesters on the left from those on the right. Everyone prepares for Donald Trump Jr.’s arrival to promote his new book, “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.” As a trauma therapist who works with women and refugees — and who practices on Canada’s west coast — I admit that I live in a progressive bubble. I’ve never met a Trump supporter...

    BERKELEY, Calif. — Will Witt walked through the University of California campus doing what he does professionally, which is trolling unwitting young liberals on camera. He approached students who seemed like good targets: people with political buttons on their bags, androgynous clothing, scarves. It was safe to say that the vast majority here in the heart of progressive culture would be liberal. Mr. Witt, whose bouffant and confident smile make him look like a high school jock from central casting, told the students that he had a question for them. If they agreed to answer, and they usually did, the...

    The outgoing boss of BP has revealed some of his daughter's friends in California are on antidepressants because of their worries over climate change. Bob Dudley, who is to step down as chief executive in February, admitted he hated seeing 'young people so unhappy, so anxious' about the impact of global warming from increasing carbon emissions. **SNIP** Mr Dudley added that he hated seeing young people so anxious, and that his daughter told him people around her are on antidepressants. Despite investing green energies, such as biofuels and solar power, BP has been criticised for putting only 3 percent of...
