There Are No Mr. Smith’s In Washington Any More

Bitter partisan politics played out today as President Donald Trump sparred with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer over a variety of issues, with Vice President Mike Pence present as well. Things became incredibly heated when Trump pressed for Congress to fund the building of the U.S. – Mexico border wall, and threatened to shutdown the government if his request was denied. Pelosi reportedly mocked the President behind closed doors and in essence stating he was throwing a tantrum.

Don’t care which way you vote or which way your ideology leans, everyone in the U.S. government is a crook. Most certainly all of the people in the picture above. Thousands of federal employee paychecks are at risk come Christmas time, but all they care about is the power play.

Alex Jones – Giving conspiracy theorists a bad name since 1999…

YouTube, Facebook and Apple have all taken down content belonging to InfoWars and Alex Jones claiming violation of their company policies. The far-right conspiracy pundit who has stated such nonsense as the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax and that 9/11 was a government operation has been shut down for hate speech and harassment. Free speech advocates claim that the tech companies are violating Jones’s civil rights.

Sorry folks, you can’t shout “Fire!” in a crowded theater. Jones is a clown posing a clear and present danger…

Trump Threatens Government Shutdown Over Immigration

President Trump stated today that “I would have no problem doing a shutdown” following a tweet that he sent over the weekend in which he said he would be willing to shut the government down in response to Congress failing to act on immigration and the building of the border wall. His Sunday tweet continued:

“Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!”

One question: If the government shuts down, who is going to watch all the migrant kids at the government detention centers, conduct ICE raids and patrol the border? Pretty sure federal workers are getting FED UP with working for IOUs…

Neccophilia – Erotic Attraction To Bad Candy

The Necco plant in Revere, Massachusetts – America’s oldest candy company and manufacturer of some of the nastiest candy (Necco Wafers, Sweethearts, Sky Bars, etc.) outside of candy corn, unexpectedly closed its doors this week. Production has been shut down after the company has been sold to an unknown bidder. The candy company just came out of bankruptcy in May and the fate of its 230 plant workers is in limbo.

We’re still trying to determine if Necco wafers are made out of Pepto Bismol or Kaopectate…
