The National Park service retweeted some sick Donald Trump burns, noting how, uh, lightly attended his inauguration was compared to Barack Obama's in 2009. But now, the NPS has been ordered by its Washington support office to "immediately cease use of government Twitter accounts until further notice," according to an internal email obtained by Gizmodo.

The NPS later removed the retweets, but one NPS account has already noted it will cease tweeting. read more


In one of the first official acts of his presidency, Donald Trump has increased taxes on a million middle-class homebuyers.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development on Friday reversed a scheduled 0.25 percent cut in mortgage insurance premiums issued by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). For a mortgage worth $200,000, this adds $500 to a homebuyer's annual costs.

These insurance fees are effectively a tax on middle-class homeownership. By reversing the cut, which was scheduled to go into effect on January 27, one week from today, Trump will be taking more money from FHA homebuyers to keep in government coffers. read more

Repub writes bill that allows police to kill protesters

Indiana bill would allow police to shut down protests 'by any means necessary'

Opponents in Indianapolis argue the proposed law, simply labelled Senate Bill 285, or SB 285, would give police power ‘even to the point of costing lives'

A bill that would require public officials in Indiana to dispatch law enforcement swiftly to remove any protesters blocking traffic by "any means necessary" prompted uproar on Wednesday.

Opponents of the bill, introduced by a Republican state senator, rushed to the general assembly in Indianapolis on Wednesday afternoon to attend a hearing for the legislation, arguing that it could give a green light to the police to shut down protests harshly "even to the point of costing lives" read more

Rank-and-file voters are angry, but nobody told the candidates.

WASHINGTON ― The seven leading candidates to serve as the next chair of the Democratic National Committee gathered at George Washington University on Wednesday night to dodge key questions about party reform and pander to the 447 insiders who will elect the next Democratic leader.

At a debate sponsored by The Huffington Post, contenders repeatedly called for "unity" and made vague calls for better "organizing" while sidestepping important issues about how the DNC should govern its future affairs.

Many committed Democrats are following the DNC race as a fight for the future of the party. After a devastating presidential defeat and nearly a decade of steady losses in Congress and at the state level read more


Balenciaga Showed a Fall 2017 Bernie Sanders–Inspired Menswear Collection.

As history has proven, fashion serves as a mirror for what's happening around us -- and judging by Balenciaga's Fall 2017 menswear collection, the brand's creative director, Demna Gvasalia, either thinks Bernie Sanders got robbed or considers him a kindred, youth-mobilizing spirit.

On Wednesday the Vermont senator and former Democratic presidential hopeful -- or rather, his campaign signage -- served as the inspiration for the French luxury brand's runway show in Paris.

Notorious for using designs for Balenciaga and his own label, streetwear favorite Vetements, to comment on various aspects of culture, from fetishism to mass consumerism, Gvasalia didn't pass up the opportunity to make a case for the political climate that could have been. Only days away from Donald Trump's inauguration and the subsequent national Women's March, read more

Do you know who wrote this article?

Here let me help you his name is Tim Worstall is a British-born writer and Senior Fellow of the Adam Smith Institute Worstall is a supporter of the UK Independence Party (UKIP)
en.wikipedia.org

The UK Independence Party (UKIP /ˈjuːkɪp/) is a Eurosceptic and right-wing populist political party in the United Kingdom.

UKIP has been identified by political scientists as part of the broader European radical right. Its ideological approach is that of right-wing populism, employing populist rhetoric to distinguish itself from the political establishment. Promoting a British unionist and nationalist agenda, it characterises the latter approach as a non-racial civic nationalism, although the accuracy of this description has been disputed. UKIP's primary emphasis has been on hard Euroscepticism, calling for the UK's exit from the European Union, while it has also placed strong emphasis on lowering immigration. Economically describing itself as libertarian.

years ago I set set to fine myself after falling into a fit of depression I ran into a Native American in Chihuahuan Desert in Texas I was completely out of water and close to fainting in the hot desert sun the Native American was setting there smiling with his eyes close under a big umbrella next to his truck drinking a big pot of tea, I fell to the ground and he must of heard me for he got up and came to me and helped me to get to of his huge umbrella next to the truck, Water I croaked, he poured me a huge cup of his tea, I gulped it down in a few swallows before I discovered it was terribly bitter, I asked what the tea was made of he answered while kind of shifting his eyes from one corner of his eyes to the other and saying just some edible cactus's he found, it tasted terrible but it was water I drank another full cup then I passed out.

next I heard a booming voice call to me, punchy it is I wake up!
Who is this I asked? It is I JC wake up! Johny Carson I asked?

No I am THE JC! you know Jesus Christ.

My lord what can I do for you, I asked.

it is not what you can do for me it is what I can do for you is why I awaken you he answered then said, you must follow the great mystic poet Ogden Nash to fine happiness and meaning into your life.

And through this I found my deep philosophy and meaning in life that I follow today.

No really honest no BS, OK maybe just a little micro dot of BS but just a tiny bit, OK maybe a little more then a tiny bit but not much more!
