The FAA has announced they are dropping coordination points named after Donald Trump. That's something I never knew existed and makes you wonder if they shouldn't maybe drop that whole naming system.
That's the speculation right now as Trump has now said he won't commit to backing the party's eventual nominee. That really puts the GOP in a bigger pickle than I mentioned earlier. Now they need to try to tame him, but in such a way that it won't piss him off and make him go third party. Add to that his continuous rise in the polls, his chance of going rogue are even greater and pose an even larger threat to Republicans. So much fun in politics these days!
Ever sit there and think "I really need to work more hours?" Well good news. You don't have to think that because Jeb Bush is thinking it for you. Yes, the brother of the President that took more vacation time than any other President actually said Americans need to work more hours. Of course this is no shock. We've heard this from Republicans for years. For example, Jack Kingston, a Republican from Georgia made the very same complaint on the House floor in 2005, saying if families can't survive then they need 2 or 3 jobs. Of course a couple of months later, when Democrats regained control of the House and announced 5 day work weeks, Jack Kingston whined and complained that Democrats didn't care about families and were "keeping us up here eats away at families".
That's your Republican Party. Go ahead and vote for them if you like, but don't you dare bitch about working so many hours to barely survive. It's what you voted for!
Following the huge passage of a bill to remove the Confederate Flag from the South Carolina State Capitol by the State Senate on Tuesday, the South Carolina House has approved the measure, sending it to their governor, Nikki Haley, who has been advocating the removal. So 42 years after raising the flag in opposition to the civil rights act, the flag will be coming down in the Palmetto State. Kudos South Carolina for finally joining the right side of history.
Disney is removing a bronze bust of Bill Cosby from it's Orlando park after the latest news of Cosby's admission that he gave women drugs to have sex with them were discovered in court records from 2005. It's pretty much to the point that there are no supporters of Cosby left, save the few that believe women deserve whatever happen to them.
Time Warner decided to keep calling a Texas woman saying she was late on her bill. The problem? Their robocall system had the wrong person, and even after she called and even after she filed lawsuit, their system kept calling. Now a judge has had enough and ruled that the cable giant must pay that plaintiff $229,500 in damages. The award was triple the amount specified in US Code, but the judge also said "Defendant harassed plaintiff with robo-calls until she had to resort to a lawsuit to make the calls stop, and even then TWC could not be bothered to update the information in its IVR system". This is a win for the good side and hopefully one that starts making changes on the harassing policy of so many companies.
First she quit her job as Governor of Alaska. Then she quit Fox News. Now the former VP candidate, Sarah Palin, has quit something else. This time it's her own web network. Yes, the online channel, launched just last year for $10/month, has announced it's going bye bye. Hard to imagine why it bombed so quick, especially with such riveting custom content as this. Hard to imagine, indeed.
Last week the NYTimes reported the health insurers are seeking some huge premium increases in 2016. When I read it the only one really mentioned was the typical culprit, Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Needless to say that came as no shock. We heard the same story last year, and why they did go up here in Ohio, other plans stayed the same or even dropped. I saw a 20% decrease in my premiums and I got much better coverage than BC/BS offers and for a much better price with lower deductibles and co-pays. So it should come to no shock that we need to look into the insurance giant, and that's exactly what California has done. The non-profit BC/BS was found to be hoarding in excess of $4 billion, and that has now caused them to lose their non-profit status in California. Perhaps it's time HHS and the DOJ also do the same and initiate a nation-wide investigation into the insurance giant?
So it turns out that Donald Trump is part of the problem that brings the "rapists, murders and drug dealers" into this country from Mexico. A Washington Post investigation has revealed undocumented workers at at least one of his properties. Now will the media call him on this?
The Hill has released their top 10 list of likely Republican nominees. At the top of the list is Jeb Bush, with Scott Walker coming in second. Mike Huckabee and Ben Carson also make the top 5, with John Kasich rounding it off at #10. See the complete list here and start praying that the Democrats win in 2016.
The AP has obtained court documents from a 2005 case against Bill Cosby for drugging and raping women, which shows Cosby admitting to the allegations. Not much more in details as the case was settled for an undisclosed sum, but it really does look bad for him and his apologists.
It seems Trump's businesses are taking more and more hits over his hate-filled speeches. That tweet above is of the latest to tell Trump cya.
Sure, this is a great idea, because China's allies, like Russia and North Korea won't jump in, which might also bring in other countries like Germany on their side and before we know it, WWIII. Dumb-ass doesn't even begin to describe his statement.
