March 11th, 2017

I wrote too late, but in the immortal words of Senator Jame Blutarsky, Nothing is over until we decide it is, so I’ll forgive the editors at The Guardian and welcome them to the resistance.

March 9th, 2017

That lawsuits—like the one from infamous Stella Liebeck—are only filed by greedy ne’er do wells seeing fast money in suing big corporations with deep pockets hoping for go-away money, is a matter of dogma among a large segment of economically disadvantage (i.e. not on the Forbes’ 400 list) Americans.

March 8th, 2017

So, I haven’t paid a great deal of attention to Milo Yiannopoulos in much the same way I rarely notice other drama queens and attention sluts.

GOMEZ: HUGE LOSS FOR CLEVELAND JOURNALISM…
