BEZOS WILL SAVE EARTH BY ENDING HUMANITY…

October 18th, 2017

In 1954, James Olds and Peter Milner conducted an experiment with rats whose brains were wired to stimulate the pleasure center. The rats could choose to press lever A, and get a food pellet, or lever B, and get a shot of pleasurable feelings in their tiny brains. Pleasure beat out food and the rats […]

October 8th, 2017

John Oliver almost gets there. He missed the opportunity for Americans to confront the reason, not the excuse, the reason why the Slavetocracy in the Confederacy was able to finally force votes to secede from the United States: wealth. The teaching moment came at timemark 08:59. Oliver dismisses the argument, but that is the central […]

October 7th, 2017

So, this is the bit that frustrates me, if you want to talk racial purity, there is no such animal for two reasons: First, race is not a taxonomic classification and Second, the common ancestors of humanity all came from Africa, so dudes dudettes— We’re all Africans. Deal.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS REDEFINED EPIC FAIL

September 25th, 2017

Driving between students today I was blown away by how every, and I mean every, radio news show focused on one story: President Donald John Trump’s appeal to his minions with his fire the sons of bitches meme. You might argue that Trump has distracted us from yet another zombie blowing up, but I don’t […]

From The Washington Post: An Ivy League graduate headed to law school, with eyes on becoming her state’s first female governor, Miss North Dakota Cara Mund knew the importance of answering a question head-on. So when judges at the Miss America competition asked her whether President Donald Trump was wrong to withdraw the United States […]

STEVE BANNON STEPS FROM BEHIND THE CURTAIN…

September 12th, 2017

Trevor is funny and on target, but if all you know about the 60 Minutes conversation between Steve Bannon and Charlie Rose comes from the late-night television show hosts (like Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert for starters) then you’re grossly uninformed. I confess that I agree with much of Bannon’s assessment. I also disagree with […]
