#5766: Fake news, because the real news is anathema

220 things Trump has done since his inauguration which have been all but obscured by the media's constant focus on the Russia non-story.

All these things Trump is accomplishing are worthwhile and good for America. Press is therefore totally uninterested.

If you needed any more evidence that Planned Parenthood is an evil organization I invite you to peruse their recommendations for the sexual education of children: "Toddlers are also to be encouraged to masturbate."

How does that "sanctuary city" horseshit work for you? What needs to happen is the naked illegal alien panhandlers need to be arrested (not just ticketed) and friggin' deported ASAP.
Law-enforcement reportedly write off the need to ticket, adding that the officers' hands were tied since most of the costumed panhandlers are illegal immigrants and under Bill de Blasio's administration, going after them would be difficult.
Translation: "We're not wasting our time on this nonsense because Hizzoner won't let us do anything effective."

And everyone is surprised that these asshats refuse to confine their activities to "Designated Activity Zones" when the police won't even ticket them for other violations of the law?

Yet another reason--as if I needed one!--never to visit NYC again. I hated it when I was there in 1985, and so far there has been absolutely no news coming out of that shithole that provides a compelling reason to return.

Not being classified as a hate crime because it was "vibrant youths" perpetrating it against white people. Kidnap, assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, you know, just boys being boys!

I wonder about this. 400 people hired, 180 "worked out." Out of 400 hires, 180 "worked out"--what does that mean? They had 400 people who passed the pre-employment drug test. How much are they paying?

Seems to me that whenever I dig into a story where an employer is complaining that he can't hire "qualified people" it ends up being because they want to pay their workers minimum wage, or at least the minimum wage for that job. "Salary range $30k-$40k" for experienced XYZ, but they offer at $25k, and then complain that they're not getting any applicants and need to hire foreigners.

So you have a job where the skills required are minimal, you don't pay much, and expect perfection. You'll get a lot of turnover, because the people who don't use drugs will work there for three to six months, and--having experience--move on to other jobs that pay more.

Statins are really bad for you. I refuse to take them, like the guy who invented them.

Cop shot dead by person trapped in a rollover. No details or description of the shooter is available. You know what that means, don't you?

Big surprise that a Democrat is a hypocrite. Democrats support "equal pay for equal work!" except when it's their own checks they're writing, and then they pay their female employees less than their male employees because well the women have less experience in the field and it's important to inventivize our longer-term employees and blah blah blah etcetera.

60% of the world's cobalt comes from the Congo which is a shithole of epic proportions, because Africa. Cobalt is an important part of making lithium ion batteries.

So, what do?

Well--got a lot to do. Suppose I should get after it.
