    MENLO PARK, CA—Declaring the problem to be a "national emergency," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg ordered the construction of a looming firewall along the borders of Facebook to prevent Google Plus refugees from getting in. A caravan of refugees from the nearly defunct social network began transitioning to Facebook earlier this week, causing Facebook engineers to quickly begin construction of the wall. While conspiracy theorists suggested the caravan was actually funded by Twitter, these claims seem to be unfounded. "We don't know what kinds of people they're sending us," Zuckerberg cautioned. "Sure, most of them may be legitimately seeking asylum. But...
  • Candidates Propose Changes To Fix Flaw In Constitution That Allows Republicans To Be Elected Satire

    03/21/2019 9:37:51 AM PDT · by gattaca · 7 replies
    WASHINGTON, D.C.—A number of Democrats have proposed changes to the structure of government that they think would help them win, such as lowering the voting age to 16, abolishing the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court, and changing how Senate seats are allocated. Now, though, some of the Democratic presidential hopefuls are attacking the heart of the matter: what they call an “outdated Constitution” that sometimes “allows Republicans to be elected.” “The election of Trump exposed a fundamental flaw in the Constitution,” Senator Elizabeth Warren said at a campaign rally. “Everyone said Hillary was supposed to win, but she didn’t....

    International Journal Review ^ | 3/18/2019 | Lizzie Helmer
    The field of candidates in the 2020 presidential elections continues to widen almost every week, but former first lady Michelle Obama argued that not everyone is cut out for the job. On an episode of Conan O’Brien’s podcast, “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend,” which aired Monday, she spoke with the host about how the perception of the job as changed in the current presidency. “It’s not a reality show, it’s real-life stuff,” she told O’Brien. Obama said that in her involvement in the 2016 election, she tried to emphasize that the position is a hard job and that someone with...

    A man, while playing on the front nine of a complicated golf course, became confused as to where he was on the course. Looking around, he saw a lady playing ahead of him. He walked up to her, explained his confusion and asked her if she knew what hole he was playing She replied, "I'm on the 7th hole, and you are a hole behind me, so you must be on the 6th hole." He thanked her and went back to his golf. On the back nine the same thing happened; and he approached her again with the same request....

    On Thursday I posted a clip of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) endorsing an effort from her colleague, Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), to lower the voting age to 16. “I myself personally — I’m not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voter — the voting age to 16,” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. “I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school, when they’re interested in all of this, when they’re learning about government to be able to vote. … But my view is that I would welcome that....

    Former Vice President "Slow Joe" Biden announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Vice President today. Reporters and fellow Democrats were taken aback by this surprising announcement. Slow Joe stated that there were several reasons for his decision to run for Vice President rather than President. First, he listed the 8 years of experience that he had as VP under Obama which made him more qualified than anyone else for the position. He stated that it was really like a highly paid part time job with the only downside being considered a lowly step-n-fetch-it. Second, he acknowledged that he...

    Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recalled how her public-school teachers thought she needed “remedial education” because she had grown up speaking Spanish at home. The freshman lawmaker, speaking Saturday at a packed town hall organized by the Jackson Heights People for Public Schools, said, “As a child I spoke Spanish first. … and I went to a school where no one looked like me. I went to a school where teachers thought I needed remedial education because I spoke two languages instead of one.”

    Moose mistaken for burglar after crashing into Breckenridge home Mar 15, 2019 By: Robert Garrison BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. – Sleeping guests inside a Breckenridge home were awakened early Friday morning to the sound of broken glass.

Breckenridge police found that a moose had crashed through a window in the home’s basement. Colorado Parks and Wildlife were called and said the animal probably had had been walking around outside the house in deep snow...

    A young Arab boy asks his father “What is that strange hat you are wearing?” The father said: “Why, my son, it is a ‘chechia.’ In the desert it protects our heads from the intense heat of the sun.” “And what is the long flowing robe you are wearing?” asked the boy. “Oh, my son!” exclaimed the father “It is very simple. This is a ‘djbellah.’ As I have told you, in the desert it is not only very hot, but the sand is always blowing. My djbellah protects the entire Body. The son then asked: “But Father, what about...
