  • “Nappy time!”: Donald Trump retweets offensive attack ad on “little RUBE” Marco Rubio

    Salon ^ | October 5th, 2015 | Scott Eric Kaufman
    On Sunday, Donald Trump re-tweeted an attack ad on “little ‘RUBE'” Marco Rubio that was, to put it mildly, in bad taste: “NEVER HIRE A BOY TO DO A MAN’S JOB” is the title, which floats above an image of an angelic-looking young child who is, presumably, Marco Rubio. He “seems like a nice boy,” the ad claims. “Well mannered but bought and paid for” by establishment Republican interests who “taught him all that fancy government stuff. ‘RINO RUBE’ repeats it well! Good boy!” Supporting the infantalizing of one of his opponents might seem unpresidential, but this is Donald Trump,...

    Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump has a new campaign-trail foe: former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina. On Sunday and Monday, Trump has gone out of his way to trash Fiorina's candidacy, blasting her business record, her electoral prospects, and even how she sounds when she speaks. "I think that she's got a good line of pitter-patter. But when you listen for more than five minutes, you develop a tremendous headache," Trump said Monday morning on "Fox & Friends." Trump had a similar line during a Sunday interview on ABC's "This Week." "She's got a good pitter-patter," Trump observed, according to an ABC...

    A cache of Atari game cartridges dug up in a New Mexico landfill last year has generated more than $100,000 in sales over the last several months. The April 2014 dig ended speculation surrounding an urban legend and proved it to be true that Atari discarded hundreds of games, including E.T. The Extraterrestrial, more than 30 years ago. In addition to the E.T. cartridges, Joseph Lewandowski found more than 60 other titles including Asteroids, Missile Command, Warlords, Star Raiders, Swordquest, Centipede and Super Breakout.

    t's been said one man's trash is another man's treasure, but in Seattle, everyone's trash is the business of government. Not that it should be that way. But that's the law in Seattle: Food scraps have to be separated from other garbage and recycling material, and compostable paper cannot be conveniently tossed out with the rest of trash. We've mentioned before here , here and here how asinine and borderline tyrannical this law is. But while we've merely made comment, some folks have taken action. They're suing the city for invasion of privacy.

    LOS ANGELES (BP) -- The "Family Guy" animated comedy series increasingly jokes about sexual violence against children and teens, with nearly 80 percent of all such scenes in the past three years perpetrated against that population group, a Parent Television Council (PTC) study found. Jokes or humorous depictions of rape, statutory rape, molestation or pedophilia against children were included in 91 percent of the series' scenes depicting sexual violence in the 2014–2015 season, up from 75 percent in 2012-2013, according to the PTC study.

So advocates on both issues are collaborating to push for sustainable international development and hope Saturday’s event inspires people to support it.

    Yesterday, I broke my long-standing streak of not having seen an Academy Award winning/nominated movie in several years. A friend talked me into seeing "Birdman," the film starring Michael Keaton. It was perhaps the most excruciating 2 or so hours of my life. Much of the time I couldn't follow what was going on. The basic plot is about a one-time super hero actor now working on a Broadway play. Half the time I didn't know what was the play and what was "reality." Then there were the F bombs. Now I'm not a prude and can tolerate foul language...

    The man who invented the K-Cup coffee pod almost 20 years ago says he regrets doing so, and he can't understand the popularity of the products that critics decry as an environmental catastrophe. John Sylvan worked at Keurig in the 1990s when he devised a simple product that could create a small mug of coffee out of a plastic pod. Originally aiming it at office workers, Sylvan said he thought the product might have some limited appeal to people who would normally go Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts or other coffee chains in the morning, because now they could get a cup...

    KNBC Los Angeles investigative reporter Randy Mac’s described the streets of L.A. as a “post apocalyptic scene,” as he rode along with the cities one, 13-man trash crew for the nearly 500-square-mile city. Mac reported, “According to a report commissioned by the City Administrator’s office, only 35 percent of LA’s streets are cleaned regularly. The constant state of uncleanliness is threatening LA’s image, making some areas appear unsafe and ungoverned.” The trash crew supervisor Russell Zamora told Mac there was “on a daily basis, somewhere from 30 to 40 tons a day,” of illegally dumped garbage throughout the city.

    In Seattle, wasting food will now earn you a scarlet letter — well, a scarlet tag, to be more accurate. The bright red tag, posted on a garbage bin, tells everyone who sees it that you've violated a new city law that makes it illegal to put food into trash cans. "I'm sure neighbors are going to see these on their other neighbors' cans," says Rodney Watkins, a lead driver for Recology CleanScapes, a waste contractor for the city. He's on the front lines of enforcing these rules. Seattle is the first city in the nation to fine homeowners for...

    Sure, the incentive to compost is the putative reason for this regulation, but exactly how is it enforced? In order for city officials and trash collectors to know you have committed the civic sin of disposing of leftover food in your trashcan, they have to examine the contents of your trashcan. Let’s hope the citizens of Seattle and trash collectors can come to some kind of silent truce over this. Do they collectors really want to examine every load they dump into the truck for transgressions? (Lord help us, the city probably offers a bonus of taxpayer money for tagging...

The Reflecting Pool also was filled with trash. Although the trash cans were full along the expanse, the attendees did not attempt to leave their garbage near the bins. Instead, they left everything on the grass where they stood.

Really, though, aside from the “victim” still being alive, it’s essentially the same line of attack. Mitt Romney’s garbage man, Richard Hayes, knows that his body’s going to break down from hauling Romney’s trash each week, and Romney just doesn’t care.

    Pause at 1 minute and 4 seconds. Not the flag waving LEFT of center, but the flag bunched up on the trash heap RIGHT of center. Both flags are equidistant from the center of the video.

    Protesters mocked attendees at a fundraiser for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Friday morning at the swanky Union League in Philadelphia. The fundraiser was expected to raise more than $3.5 million for the candidate. As buttoned-up Romney supporters left the breakfast, protesters (who gathered prior to 8 a.m. with bagels, coffee and cheesesteaks) harangued them for wasting their money on a candidate that the polls say is losing. "How's it feel to back a loser?" one protestor yelled. The group, holding signs that said "Mitt 'Rob Me'" and "Lyin' Ryan," chanted: "Save your money, Obama's gonna win!" One Romney...

    RENO, NV - Reno police have released the name of a man crushed to death after a chase downtown. Wednesday morning about 11, police were helping Municipal Court marshals, who were trying to stop a man with a warrant out for his arrest. The man was on a bicycle, but then dropped the bike and ran. Officers and marshals stopped the search when they couldn't find the man, but then a resident at the Truckee River Terrace Apartments reported finding a man in a trash compactor there. That's where police found 37-year-old Rodney Wright, the man marshals had been looking...

    Barack Obama turned up the intensity of his reelection bid, debuting a movie glorifying himself as a president who made "tough" decisions that dragged a traumatized nation out of crisis. The 17-minute film, soberly narrated by Tom Hanks, is packed with pensive still photos of Obama, and testimony to his toughness from backers like former president Bill Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden and top political aides. It opens with footage of Obama's euphoric victory rally in Chicago in 2008, recreating the hope and expectation of that campaign, but perhaps inadvertently pointing to the difficultly of recreating that heady moment in...

This was just a prelude of what was to come.Minaj’s performance began on stage with a mock confessional skit. This was followed by a taped video depicting a mock exorcism. With stained glass in the background, she appeared on stage again with choir boys and monks dancing.Perhaps the most vulgar part was the sexual statement...
