The Nightmare Has Barely Started for Some!: LA Times Headline

Headline of Today's LA Times: Medicaid Cuts May Hit State Hard

On line version link below....

I live in LA and am on Medi-Cal which has saved my life up to now. I'm assuming all other states will be affected as well.

For me, I am on one medication: a controlled substance. I get it for free. Without Medi-Cal, I would have to pay hundreds of dollars a month out of pocket. The irony is, it's a generic which costs very little for the pharmaceutical companies to produce. I could and would gladly pay, say $150/mnth, which is far more than what it costs. Yet it's either pay hundreds of dollars or pay nothing. There is no in between.

Who else on here is in this boat or similar?

Has there ever been such a pall over an inauguration before?

Besides the aftermath of the Kennedy assassination, I'm not aware of such lack of enthusiasm for a new regime.

I think if Tweety did a 'fireside chat' on primetime national TV, talked about his past mistakes, apologized, assured the LGBT, minority, and foreign-born citizens of their safety. Chalked it up to the frenzy of campaigning or something... it would heal a lot of wounds.

Instead we get the same old, same old: grudges, thin-skinned diatribes, paranoid accusations. And a cabinet made up of homophobes, Nazi's and racists.

Is he tone-deaf? Doesn't he know ( or care) that most of the county loathes him?

How Often Do You Update Your Computer Drivers?

I recently bought the AVG Driver Update program and was surprised that I had about 40 driver updates on my computer/printer that I wasn't aware about and also 7 program updates. I'm not shilling, but I think this is a good program because it automatically looks for updates and alerts you to them and installs them automatically if you want. Some of my driver updates were for even the basic CPU storage drives, whatever that is.

What [music] goes around....

It occurred to me recently that some DL patrons, and especially the general public, view today’s music in a vacuum, without reference to (or consideration for) music that was popular years earlier. I completely understand this, because I, myself, failed to do the same thing when I was very young in the 1960s and for many years thereafter. I believed that old music was simply irrelevant.

Benny Goodman was a trend leader in Swing Music, which was popular in the 1930s and 1940s, years before I was born. He was a pioneer in the same way we consider leaders of more recent trends like trance, melodic, and deep house to be. In fact, Benny was comparable in achievement to artists like BT, Paul Van Dyk, and Eelke Kleijn.

It’s easy to dismiss the achievements of artists in the distant past. I’ve learned that no matter how music changes, it remains relevant, because it adds perspective and history. When I’m one day beyond the mend and living in a rest home, I hope to be sitting in a semi-circle exercise class, shaking my arms above my head to songs, which might include Benny Goodman’s “Sing, Sing, Sing”. I hope they take requests.

European leaders shocked as Trump slams NATO and E.U., raising fears of transatlantic split

BRUSSELS — European leaders grappled with the jolting reality of President-elect Donald Trump’s skepticism of the European Union on Monday, saying they might have to stand without the United States at their side during the Trump presidency.

The possibility of an unprecedented breach in transatlantic relations came after Trump — who embraced anti-E.U. insurgents during his campaign and following his victory — said in weekend remarks that the 28-nation European Union was bound for a breakup and that he was indifferent to its fate. He also said NATO’s current configuration is “obsolete,” even as he professed commitment to Europe’s defense.

Trump’s attitudes have raised alarm bells across Europe, which is facing a wave of elections this year in which anti-immigrant, Euroskeptic leaders could gain power. Most mainstream leaders have committed to working with Trump after his inauguration Friday, even as they have expressed hope that he will moderate his views once he takes office. His continued hard line has created a painful realization in Europe that they may now have to live without the full backing of their oldest, strongest partner. The European Union underpins much of the continent’s post-World War II prosperity, but skeptics have attacked it in recent years as a dysfunctional bloc that undermines finances and security.

“We will cooperate with him on all levels, of course,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters in Berlin. But she said Europeans will need to take responsibility for themselves.

“We Europeans have our destiny in our own hands,” she said.

The full ramifications of a potential breakdown in transatlantic ties are so extensive, they are difficult to total. U.S. guarantees form the backbone of European security. The United States and the 500-million-people-strong European Union are each other’s most important trade partners. For decades, European nations and the United States have worked tightly together on issues of war, peace and wealth.

Trump appears skeptical that the European Union matters to American security or economic growth.

“People want their own identity, so if you ask me, others, I believe others will leave,” Trump said of the European Union in a weekend interview with the Times of London and Germany’s Bild newspaper. He said he did not care about the E.U.’s future. “I don’t think it matters much for the United States,” he said.

“You look at the European Union, and it’s Germany. Basically a vehicle for Germany,” Trump said, meaning Germany had used the free-trade bloc to sell its goods to the disadvantage of others. He added that Merkel had made a “very catastrophic mistake” in opening Europe’s doors to migrants and refugees.

And he offered no special credit to European nations for being long-standing U.S. allies, saying he will trust Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin alike at the outset of his presidency.

“I start off trusting both,” he said. “But let’s see how long that lasts. It may not last long at all.”

Trump offered mixed messages about the NATO defense alliance, which is dominated by the United States, calling it “obsolete” and saying it is “very unfair to the United States” that most nations are not meeting their voluntary defense spending commitments. “With that being said, NATO is very important to me,” Trump said.

The Kremlin embraced Trump’s comments, with a spokesman agreeing that NATO is obsolete. British leaders also welcomed Trump’s willingness to negotiate a trade deal in the wake of their nation’s departure from the E.U.

But among most U.S. allies, Trump’s attitudes “caused astonishment and excitement, not just in Brussels,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told reporters Monday in Brussels, where he was meeting with other European foreign ministers at a previously scheduled gathering. Coming directly from a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Steinmeier said NATO had listened to Trump’s comments “with concern.”

Canada’s Justin Trudeau Says Transgender Inmates Will Be Housed Based On Gender Identity

"Trans rights are human rights."

Justin Trudeau continued to serve as an inclusive voice for the LGBT community last week after vowing to make sure transgender inmates are able to serve their sentences in prisons that match their gender identity.

The Canadian prime minister vowed to address the problem at a town hall meeting on Thursday after a trans woman declared that the current prison placement policy is “torture.”

“I will make sure we look at it and we address it and we do right in recognizing that trans rights are human rights, and we need to make sure we are defending everyone’s dignity and rights in every way we can,” he said.

A new Correctional Service Canada policy was just released days before Trudeau’s speech, however, that places inmates in facilities based on birth sex instead of gender identity.

A spokesman for the minister of public safety said that all Canadians should be free to be themselves and safe from discrimination, and declared that the CSC has already begun to update its rules regarding trans inmates.

He added that a bill that would add gender identity to the list of protections against discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act is currently moving through Parliament.

Eugene Cernan, last man on the moon, dies

A now a break from the usual ass and presenting dick threads:

Eugene A. Cernan, the last astronaut to leave his footprints on the surface of the moon, has died, NASA said Monday.

He was 82.

"We are saddened by the loss of retired NASA astronaut Gene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon," the US space agency said on Twitter.

Cernan was one of fourteen astronauts selected by NASA in October 1963. He served as as spacecraft commander of Apollo 17, the last scheduled manned mission to the moon for the United States. The mission launched on December 6, 1972 and returned on December 19.

The mission established several new records for manned space flight, including longest manned lunar landing flight (301 hours, 51 minutes), and longest lunar surface extravehicular activities (22 hours, 6 minutes).

Australian Open 2017

We again return to the antipodal summer and once again to the first major of the year. As usual, first the men. The recently-made Sir Andy Misery, er, Murray is on top with his awesome bottom and thighs. He's world number one and Olympic champion, but we feel the absence of the always interesting but injury-prone Del Portro. The unfulfilled Isner may face DL favorite Po-hey (Pouille) in the second round. Berdych is still around and may meet Gramps Federer, seeded 17, in the second round. Nishikori is still there, but have we forgotten about him?

Stan Wawrinka and his awesome ass and thighs come next, but can we ignore his pockmarked face? Despite his major wins he may be the underrated competitor in this tournament. Australian James Duckworth is also in the same quarter. Does he have the legs to stand on? (American political reference) Will Kyrgios explode as usual, and will oldster Tsonga surprise us? We hope Sock's awesome ass advances. Ics are next: Cilic and Tomic.

Monfils is next, another we're surprised is still around as well as another Ic: Coric. Young and old Baghdatis, always entertaining, then Coal Schreiber. Then, of course, there's the injured and recovering Nadal (no? 9) with his famous ass and newly-implanted hair. Will he come back? Can he compete again against Sir Andy and Nole!? Ferrer, Simon: still around. Donaldson and Fritz: do we care? Pig-faced Raonic.

Dear Lord, Thiem and his beautiful rival-of-Nadal-ass come next. Oldsters Haas, Dimitrov, Gasquet and Feliciano. Is Goffin an oldster? Verdasco of the nice thighs and then...Nole! Nole this thread! Ingratiating himself again especially now that he has lost his number one ranking to Sir Andy of the Nice Beefy Ass and Thighs.

On to the women if we must because as we know from Courtney and Ben say the WTA is as compelling as the men. Kerber is now, unusually, number one but is she really the one to beat? Ovas: Plisk and Schevd, Then we have perpetual ensured finalist Genie Bouchard according to Chris Evert, World's Worst Tennis Commentator. Vinci will defeat. Sanchez Navarro is there as is Mugurutha.

Then Halep and...

Olympic champion...

Puig!

Tig.

Ovas: Kozl, Voskoboe (Face of Boe), Kuznets and Pavlyuchenk

Am I forgetting anyone? Oh yeah, Granny Venus! May she retire with dignity. And Halep too!

Ovas: Plisik, Gavril

Trump favourite: Putin-tsteva

Skip Stosur and Radwanska. Interjection by Ben and Courtney: Oh, so fascinating!

This quarter's Ovas: Cibulk, Allert, Alexandr, Makar, Rodio, Stryc, Safar

Errani and Wozniaki. Courtney and Ben: Still interested?

Of course we are still interested, because although last but not a mere footnote we reach the newly-engaged number two Serena Williams. Is she the one to truly beat?

Now once past my usual verbose opening, let's have a great Australian Open thread and a fruitful and satisfying tennis year. Will Kevin Spacey be there rooting for Andy to up from his bottom? What will Mirka Federer eat in nervous anticipation of her husband's matches, and will Brooklyn Decker-Roddick, model and thin, chastise her? I'll keep my Popsicle up.

Doctors dropping ALL Medicare patients

Not too long ago my step-dad had to spend a few days in intensive care. Pretty scary stuff.

He had just about every nasty symptom imaginable, from constant vomiting to dizziness to ultra-high fever, but the doctors couldn’t figure out why. Fortunately his condition improved enough that he was released from the hospital, and now he’s on the mend. Now, my step-dad is a Medicare patient. But he just found out that he’s been unceremoniously dropped by his Primary Care doctor.

Apparently his physician dropped all of her Medicare patients in one giant culling. It turns out that physicians across the country have been firing Medicare patients; and according to a late 2015 study from the Kaiser Family Foundation, 21% of physicians are not taking new Medicare patients.

Then, yesterday I made matzo balls and used the stock for the soup but it was way too strong and I had heartburn and...the rest.

So, clearly I needed to add water to the stock, but how do I know how much without watering it down too much?

I've had stock explained before but I don't get it.

If people respond to this and I don't get it - I will say so. I don't care how much I'm insulted (which I'm sure I will be), but I'd like to sort this out, once and for all.

How can anyone hate Zendaya?

She can sing, act, dance. She's an activist. She has her own clothing brand. She's tall and can model like no one's business. She is mega talented and has everything going for her. She is much more level headed than all of the other Disney girls. She is a great role model for all young girls out there. There's no one quite like her in the industry and that makes her all the more likable. Zendaya is a true star.

It does not " Hail" in Winter

It's called "sleet." You would think adults would know the difference between hail and sleet and freezing rain. Sleet is tiny frozen droplets that fall in winter or cold weather. Hail is a warm weather phenomenon that falls during thunderstorms. Outside of the tropics and Florida, hail rarely falls in winter. Freezing rain is rain that freezes on cold surfaces.

In 2014 Trump called Russia the 'biggest problem' and geopolitical foe of U.S.

In a series of interviews in March of 2014, Donald Trump singled out Russia as the United States' "biggest problem" and greatest geopolitical foe. Trump's comments more than two years ago, which came in the wake of Russian incursions into Crimea, offer a sharp contrast to the Russia-friendly rhetoric he has employed since launching his presidential campaign. In the interviews reviewed by CNN's KFile from March 2014, which occurred on NBC News and Fox News, Trump goes as far as to suggest imposing sanctions to hurt Russia economically and then later says he supports such sanctions. Trump also expressed his agreement with former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's 2012 assessment that Russia is the United States' number one "geopolitical foe."

yes, he was blackmailed, either through the shitload money he borrowed from Russian banks, or the piss tapes

Steve McQueen Stories by first wife Neile Adams

From "My Husband, My Friend" book by McQueen' first wife. Neile Adams

IF I WERE to pick a specific event that signaled the point of no return, it would have to be that morning in early January 1968 when an anonymous phone call disrupted our breakfast. A man’s voice said cryptically that an underground book had just been released containing a list of all the known and unknown homosexuals who were in the public eye. “I thought you’d like to know that your name is on the list,” said the voice on the other end. Click.

The phone went dead and the blood drained from Steve’s face. He was thunderstruck. There was a long pause as he looked at me unseeing. Thinking hard. Then finally he recounted the mysterious telephone call. We both fell silent trying to grasp the situation, trying to grasp what it all meant.

In the end we both agreed that, one, this book was a sleazy publication and consequently no one would see it; and that, two, no one in his right mind would ever think of Steve as gay. tttt But Steve became possessed. His ego couldn’t handle the innuendo. It seemed to violate everything he stood for—most notably his macho image. We had our lawyers try to track down the publication, but it was an impossibility. The name of the publishing house was phony and the trail led nowhere.

Fortunately for their own reasons, the FBI became interested in the case, and within two weeks the books had disappeared from the underground market, just as Bullitt started to roll in San Francisco. But the incident had shaken him.

That, plus the drug culture and the sexual revolution, conspired to draw him into a midlife crisis. tttt

Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw

From Ali MacGraw' book "Moving Pictures"

When I first saw him, the movie star “Steve McQueen,” it was from a seat in the deep, dark Radio City Music Hall. The movie was Bullitt. It was one of the very rare times in my life, especially in my grown-up years, when I left the movie theater with my knees knocking for the star.

He had a tigerlike quality. Something about his short athletic body reminded me of a wild animal, ready at an instant to pounce or attack. I think the essential thing about Steve was that he exuded danger. Lots of men and women are handsome or sexy, but it is hard for me to think of one film actor, except for Marlon Brando, who had Steve’s innate mystery and danger. You never knew what he was going to do or say or be next.

In life it was a little less romantic, making for a pretty nerve-racking home life as I tried to guess the mood of the day or the hour. He came by this sense of danger the hard way — by surviving a devastating childhood. And never trusting again

Our relationship was doomed from the start . Steve tried half-heartedly to confront his problem through the help of an analyst. “Don’t ever tell anyone I am seeing a shrink,” he said. “I don’t want anyone to think I am weak.” He missed so many appointments that it was obvious he didn’t really want to deal with the pain and history.

At the same time, I was seeing an analyst. The doctor was a kind and decent man, but unfortunately his system consisted of listening to me nonstop for forty-five minutes while adding no advice or guidance whatever. I never knew what he was thinking....

It was easy to count the Old Milwaukee beer cans and joints in the ashtrays and come up with the obvious fact that Steve was somewhat stoned every day of our almost six-year relationship. What I didn’t know then was that, whether or not I drank a lot during that time, I had my own illness. Alcoholism and the related addictions are not just the shot of tequila or the line of coke.

Every single wounding childhood button that could be pushed by either of us was: Steve pushed ones in me that reminded me of the violence in my father, and I reminded him of his mother in ways that were intolerably painful. Steve loathed a woman who drank at all. That of course enraged me, as he was constantly drinking beer and smoking grass...

Is our Santeria poster here? I need help.

I am ready to give up. I cannot keep a job or find a single friend, and it has turned my lifetime of pain and loneliness into anger and bitterness. Former co-workers have bad-mouthed me to their colleagues, and cost me other jobs. This is after they said they would be references for me. This is not speculation; I know for sure, because the potential employers were friends in the same industry as them; and it is not 1 or 2, it is at least 5 (that I know of for sure) from completely different industries. Former friends ignore and avoid me until I give up and move on, and like co-workers, it isn't a few, it is all of them. This pattern of failure and isolation is torturing me, and I feel like I am cursed or hexed to fail repeatedly. My family is of no help whatsoever.

I know DL will question me, so here is my background. I have been to 3 different psychiatrists and psychotherapists (for a total of eight years; the current one, a psychiatrist, weekly for the last 6 years) and cycled through 6 different antidepressants. Each doctor insisted there is no personality disorder with me; that I have social anxiety and intimacy fears, and that I need to focus on the positive, keep trying and not give up.

I can't keep trying. I can't be positive when I have failed over and over again and see no change happening. I have asked for help; the help I need isn't coming from the ones I have asked.

Santeria poster, if you are here, please, I am desperate. I need to stop this pattern that is killing my soul. I am not worried about physically dying; it is my actual soul that is dying and I fear it will be lost forever. I need hope. I can't hope because things never change, and until things change I have no reason to hope, so I am asking for a reason to hope. You have mentioned in your posts how Santeria helped you through a very rough time and connected you with someone wonderful. I just want a good friend. 2 or 3 would be wonderful. I want to find and keep a job where I am not harassed or bullied, or become a magnet for an angry, toxic person. Or at least - I want to know WHAT I DID WRONG! If I could only know that - what I am doing wrong - that, in of itself, would likely turn my life around. I can't change behaviour until I recognize it.

If you could give me any advice - any prayer, ritual, anything to focus or meditate upon - or, if you know someone who could help me, please, it would make a world of difference to me. Please, I have exhausted every resource and don't know where else to turn.

Prince Charles could spark a ‘constitutional crisis’

As Queen Elizabeth II spends her 13th day out of the public eye, forgoing annual holiday traditions while battling what's been called a “heavy cold,” many have been wondering what comes next for the royal family following the queen’s death or abdication.

Buckingham Palace reported Friday the queen was continuing to recover from her illness, along with the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip. Long before the queen became sick just before Christmas, rumors were swirling for years about who would become the first king to hold the throne since 1952. Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth’s son and the longest-serving heir apparent in British history, has been first in line to be king since then. However, it’s been said the 68-year-old could spark a "constitutional crisis" by immediately passing the throne to his son, Prince William.

It might sound like a long-shot, but it’s happened before. A similar phenomena occurred in 1936 when King-Emperor Edward VIII proposed to marry American socialite Wallis Simpson, who was in the midst of divorcing her second husband. The news caused widespread confusion over the fate of the British empire, with a dramatic and historic abdication speech following the untimely succession of Edward’s brother, the Duke of York.

"You must believe me when I tell you that I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as king as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love," he said at the time. "I have made this, the most serious decision of my life, only upon the single thought of what would, in the end, be best for all."

Of course, Prince Charles' abdication from the throne is even further complicated by opening the ceremonial role of queen as well. While Queen Elizabeth II was the official successor of power when Edward abdicated, her rocky relationship with Charles’ wife Camilla Parker Bowles, an American divorcee and the cause for his divorce to Princess Diana, makes for an extremely uncertain transition of power that throws the royal family’s modern tradition of hereditary succession into jeopardy.

Much like Edward, Prince Charles has faced similar controversy in his lifetime, including when he divorced Princess Diana after having an affair with Camilla Parker Bowles as well as lobbying letters he sent to ministers across several U.K. governments entitled the "black spider memos."

Meanwhile, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton have enjoyed significantly higher approval ratings than Charles, though none were as high as Queen Elizabeth’s.

When the queen ultimately steps down from the throne, either through abdication or death, the proceeding succession of the royal family is intricately planned, with Prince Charles immediately becoming king. What’s more than likely to happen, barring an event unprecedented in modern royalty, is exactly what the Palace has planned for decades: Prince William will continue to serve in his role under his father’s throne.

Trump HINTS that White House Press will be muzzled when he POTUS

Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus suggested that major changes are coming to the White House press corps.

Speaking to radio host Hugh Hewitt, Priebus said "many things have to change" in the White House's relationship and daily traditions with the media

"I think that it’s important that we look at all of those traditions that are great, but quite frankly, as you know, don’t really make news and they're just sort of mundane, boring episodes," Priebus said.

"The point of all of this conversation is that the traditions, while some of them are great, I think it’s time to revisit a lot of these things that have been done in the White House"

I wouldn't be surprised if Trump just locks the entire White House press corp out of the White House. And there is no one to stop him from doing that.

Rebel's rebels? The Republicans who might not kowtow to Trump

Rebel's rebels? The Republicans who might not kowtow to Trump

John McCain and Rand Paul are among the few GOP politicians allying with liberals to save Obamacare and examine president-elect’s alleged ties to Russia

Alan Yuhas, Monday 16 January 2017 07.00 EST

A small group of Republicans may prove a thorn in Donald Trump’s side through the early months of his administration, as he continues to upset conservatives in Congress with his positions on Russia and healthcare.

Senator John McCain, the party’s 2008 nominee for president and a Republican who abandoned Trump late in the 2016 race, has led calls for a congressional investigation into Russian interference in last year’s election.

Citing intelligence chiefs’ conclusions that Russia orchestrated hacks on the Democratic party to sow confusion and help Trump’s candidacy, McCain has insisted he will organize an investigation even if his party’s leaders in the Senate do not join. McCain has also acknowledged that he passed an unsubstantiated dossier, alleging links between the Kremlin and Trump’s campaign, to the FBI last year.

Early in his campaign, Trump ridiculed McCain’s service in the Vietnam war, in which he was captured and tortured by the Vietcong. “He’s not a war hero,” Trump said. “He’s a war hero because he was captured? I like people who weren’t captured.”

Trump received five draft deferments from the war.

Senators Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio have also actively criticized the president-elect’s steadfast interest in making Russian president Vladimir Putin a friend of the Trump White House.

In confirmation hearings, Rubio pressed the question of Putin in sharp questions to Rex Tillerson, Trump’s choice for secretary of state and an Exxon Mobil oil executive who received an “order of friendship” medal from the Russian president.

Tillerson told Rubio he would not use the term “war criminal” to describe Putin over his bombing campaign in Syria, for which the senator scolded him.

“We can’t achieve moral clarity with rhetorical ambiguity,” Rubio said.

Senator Rand Paul, who like Rubio was defeated by Trump in the Republican primary, has suggested he will oppose the president-elect on certain cabinet picks. The libertarian-tinged senator was also the only Senate Republican to vote against a rapid repeal of the Affordable Care Act, Barack Obama’s healthcare reform law.

Paul said he could not reconcile adding $10tn to the deficit with a repeal that fails to account for the budget or adequately replace the system.

Five other Republicans have also resisted the immediate repeal of Obamacare: Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Bob Corker, Bill Cassidy and Rob Portman. The five senators added an amendment this week to give Republicans more time to repeal the ACA and write a replacement.

Representative Charlie Dent, meanwhile, told reporters this week that moderate Republicans in the House similarly have “serious reservations” about acting without a new healthcare plan.

Few Republicans have criticized the president-elect publicly since the election, even though dozens said they would not vote for him after, in October, video was released of Trump bragging about groping women without consent.

On Saturday Nebraska senator Ben Sasse was one of the few members of his party to defend John Lewis, a Democrat in the House, from Trump’s insult that the civil rights leader was “all talk”.

Let's analyze the Trump marriage

IMO, they are married for convenience only now. Their body language together during the election was very telling. He acted like he was contemptuous and had "lordship" over her and she acted like she couldn't stand him touching her. In one pic he looked as if he was squeezing her arm very hard while she had a forced smile on her face. I don't think he has a lot of respect for women period especially former prostitutes and I'm sure told her he was still going to cheat and she had to perform certain services and expect certain treatment in exchange for the title of Mrs. Trump and the money that goes with it.

The usual rentals out here suck (in pretty much anything below $1,500/mo for a 2/1 house- big city in Florida close to beaches)- so people are willing to pay a premium for location and amenities. But my life is empty. I don't have enough to do. And since I don't need cash - that fact- complicates it further. Am at my wits end.

If you’ve ever sat through a rightwing YouTube rant or spent five minutes on Twitter, you’ve likely heard the word “snowflake”. The term has supplanted the old standby of “social justice warrior” to describe a certain kind of liberal. This is thanks in large part to the far-right blog Breitbart, which lobbed it at anyone who criticized Trump’s incendiary rhetoric. But if you’re unfamiliar with the term, allow me to explain.

We “special snowflakes” are delicate beings obsessed with our own uniqueness. We identify with genders and sexual orientations we made up off the top of our heads in order to confuse people. We demand that everyone at whatever liberal arts college we’re doubtless attending respect these fabricated identities, and we punish our peers with mean words like “bigot” and “racist” when they refuse to comply.

We can only survive within the confines of our “safe spaces,” where we are protected from criticism and dissenting opinions. When we are confronted with a point of view from outside our snow globe of mandatory tolerance, we become, as the deplorables say, “triggered”. The word was originally intended to describe a reaction to a reminder of trauma, but has been recast as meaning almost any kind of upset, no matter how minor.

In sum: self-imposed victimhood, an inflated sense of self-importance, an inability to handle criticism, and a totalitarian demand for respect are the criteria that define the snowflake. It’s ironic, then, that the public figure who most reliably projects those qualities at the moment is Donald Trump. America is soon to inaugurate its first Snowflake-in-Chief.

Here is a man who, when a journalist like Jim Acosta hurts his feelings with a simple question, threatens to have him ejected. A man who, when he feels insulted, and he frequently feels insulted, goes on Twitter to berate whoever it is has damaged his delicate ego. A man who cannot handle an ounce of criticism without having a meltdown.

Donald Trump demands complete and total respect from everyone around him, including the press, whose job it is to hold him accountable. He portrays himself as the victim in petty spats with news outlets, journalists, celebrities, a former Miss Universe, the cast of a Broadway show, a Gold Star mother. The list goes on.

Indeed, Trumpism is a movement built on victimhood. It holds that Americans are unemployed because immigrants stole their jobs. It argues that people of color are diluting the culture of America and that LGBT people having rights is an attack on the traditional family. Its slogan, Make America Great Again, speaks to that victimhood. We were great once. We aren’t anymore, because of those people.

Saying “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” is enough to inspire a meltdown. Nando’s, a chicken chain, recently “triggered” multiple Trump supporters by simply handing out “#everyoneiswelcome” posters in their DC stores. The act of simply existing while transgender sends some into a tizzy.

The reality is that, yes, we actually are all unique, no matter our political leanings. Having strong reactions to things does not necessarily imply weakness or fragility, and is not the same thing as being triggered. The phenomenon of living in an ideological bubble where opinions that align with our own are considered good and opinions that challenge your beliefs are considered bad is not unique to either party or any movement. It is also not the same thing as a safe space.

Not every protest is a tantrum. Using speech to criticize speech is not censorship. Dismissing the struggles of marginalized communities as “identity politics” is intellectually lazy. Sometimes, something just is racist or sexist, and if describing it as such is enough to make you have a meltdown, then maybe you’re the fragile one. I’m talking to you, Donald.

So I work at Amazon in an FC.

I was alone tonight, the flighty bitch they hired to help me flaked out and I was alone. My boss sent this email to me:

"Night Shift Team,

I had a manager from the Mezz reach out to me saying that they have been waiting for V4s and N3s since 20:00. Can we get these to them on a priority? If we are having any issues, please escalate."

I couldn't respond on email because I was busting my ass to get work done...by myself.

So then she sends this to our entire team (day and night shift):

"Team,

Rep. John Lewis: I don’t see Trump ‘as a legitimate president’

Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., said the Russian government’s apparent interference with the U.S. election delegitimizes Donald Trump’s victory.

The civil rights leader told “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd that he believes in forgiveness and working with others, but he said it would be exceptionally hard for him to forge a relationship with President-elect Trump.

“It’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” he said in a portion of the interview, published Friday.

When asked why he doesn’t recognize Trump’s claim to the Oval Office, Lewis cited what the top U.S. intelligence agencies have said: that Moscow directed a multilayered campaign against the United States to denigrate one candidate and boost the other.

“I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” he told Todd.

Lewis said he does not plan to attend Trump’s inauguration. This would mark the first time he skipped the Inauguration Day ceremonies since he started representing Georgia’s 5th Congressional District in 1987. The ceremonies are normally a celebration of bipartisanship, and many Trump critics — including Bill and Hillary Clinton — plan to be there. Several other House Democrats have also said they plan to boycott the event.

“You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong; is not right,” Lewis said.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee earlier this month about the intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia meddled in the U.S. election through cyberattacks and other efforts. U.S. agencies have not claimed that such interference played a decisive role in Trump’s win against Hillary Clinton.

Late last month, President Obama ordered retaliatory sanctions against two Russian intelligence agencies and expelled 35 Russian suspected spies from the U.S.

Throughout the campaign, WikiLeaks had published embarrassing emails from the Democratic National Committee and from Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has rejected allegations that Russia was their source for the information.

“I think there was a conspiracy on the part of the Russians and others to help him get elected,” Lewis said. “That’s not right. That’s not fair. That’s not the open democratic process.”

The complete “Meet the Press” interview is scheduled to air on Sunday morning.

Let''s Talk About Buffy The Vampire Slayer

One of the best shows on television?

When Buffy was great, it was amazing (Becoming 1 and 2 will forever be some of my favorites episodes of tv ever) but it really started to fizzle in Season 4 when they began college. The college setting just didn't work with the metaphor as well as high school, they lost some strong characters (Angel, Cordelia) to the spin off, and the characters they added just didn't work for me. Plus, didn't Joss leave around this time?

And then there was Dawn. Less said of that the better.

Hated seasons, 6 and 7, didn't like Spuffy or the complete take over of the show by Spike, Buffy started to become a brittle, no fun bitch, Willow got hooked on magic (oy vey), and the nerds, and potentials were stupid. I don't think the show ended on a high note, but in the end, the bulk of the show was still some of the most moving, ground breaking, original television ever created.

Seasons 1-3 kick ass, the rest are spotty to meh.

Fashion Boss sues airline for denying boarding to Emotional Support Dogs

Sharon Kao, who considers the white, fluffy pooches her “kids,” says she needs Opus and Ace to keep her anxiety and panic disorder at bay.

She claims the supervisor dismissed her documents, saying: “It’s not enough to fly on my flight. I don’t care what it says. I am in charge and I decide if you can fly on my airline.”

Kao claims she was then accused her of lying about her panic-disorder disability.

Kao began having trouble breathing, but the irate supervisor refused to get the Estée Lauder executive help until she nearly fainted and a fellow flier, believed to be a doctor, stepped in.

But even after paramedics arrived to bring Kao to an infirmary, the supervisor wouldn’t leave her alone, she claims.

As she was being treated, Kao handed her dogs to her husband, prompting the supervisor to yell: “See, I knew you did not need the dogs,” Kao claims in court papers.

Hillary capsized the Dem party. We who did not vote for Hillary do not call Hillary voters dumb. We are intelligent enough to know why you voted for Hillary. You are acting like an adult child of an alcoholic and ignoring drunk mommy's lies, thefts, murders, missing bodies, war mongering and treason - because drunk mommy is a paid speaker corporate whore who promised you cupcakes of gay marriage and abortion, et al, and all you have been taught is to push mommy and bash the other, even if they will give you the same cupcakes. We see 1% having 90% the wealth, and our congress with a 6% approval rating and refused to vote for your drunk establishment candidate mommy who robbed the country of the Dem candidate we chose: Bernie. Your treasonous mom convinced you to look the other way, but we refused to. Yes, you will continue to act out like an adult child of an alcoholic and say those who did not vote for your drunk mommy are dumb or naughty, and vilify us in your seemingly secure sheep group mentality, which is bullying, and deliberate. You can and will ignore this; you still think we are dumb for voting against your drunk mommy. It's what you have been taught to think, and sheep follow their orders from the fake media (operated by the 1%) which supplied drunk mommy her fix. But your drunk mommy, with her lies, cheating, thefts, murders, war baiting and treason, lost. We are willing to gamble that anyone else is better. Anyone."

Trade War? Trump Threatens 35% Tax on BMWs Prompting Germany's Economics Minister to Trash Quality of US Autos

'How Many Chevrolets Do You See in Germany?' Trump Asked Donald Trump is now threatening BMW with a whopping 35 percent tariff, prompting Germany economy minister to denigrate the quality of American cars.

"Germany is a great country, great manufacturing country — you go down Fifth Avenue everybody has a Mercedes-Benz in front of their building, right — the fact is that it’s been very unfair to the US, it’s not a two-way street," Trump told the former editor of a German newspaper in an interview published by The Times of London on Monday.

"How many Chevrolets do you see in Germany? Maybe none — not too many — how many — you don’t see anything over there — it’s a one-way street — it’s gotta be a two-way street," Trump insisted.

Asked if Trump expects German auto manufacturers to build more plants in the U.S., Trump responded, "I would tell BMW if they think they’re gonna build a plant in Mexico and sell cars into the US without a 35 per cent tax, it’s not gonna happen, it’s not gonna happen — so if they want to build cars for the world I would say wish them luck — they can build cars for the US but they’ll be paying a 35 per cent tax on every car that comes into the country."

Sigmar Gabriel, Germany’s economy minister and vice-chancellor, immediately hit back, attacking American auto manufacturers.

“The American car industry is getting worse, weaker and more expensive,” Gabriel told German newspaper Bild, on Monday, according to MarketWatch. He added, "the U.S. needs to build better cars" if Americans are choosing German cars over American-made autos.

"I believe BMW’s biggest factory is already in the US, in Spartanburg," South Carolina, Gabriel added, according to The Guardian. "The US car industry would have a bad awakening if all the supply parts that aren’t being built in the US were to suddenly come with a 35% tariff. I believe it would make the US car industry weaker, worse and above all more expensive. I would wait and see what the Congress has to say about that, which is mostly full of people who want the opposite of Trump."

Chickenshit Colorado Congressman Sneaks Out Back Door Rather Than Meet 200 Constituents Who Wanted Answers About The ACA Repeal

In 2012, Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) lashed out at President Obama in the ugliest of ways. “I don’t know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America,” the congressman said, adding, “But I do know this, that in his heart, he’s not an American. He’s just not an American.”

Coffman later tried to apologize in a memorable and unintentionally hilarious way, generating the kind of national media attention politicians usually try to avoid.

Nearly five years later, Coffman is poised to become famous for something very different. KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver, had this striking report over the weekend about the hundreds of people who showed up at a “community event” hosted by the congressman at a local library.

While the crowd was waiting inside the lobby, singing and chanting, Aurora Police officers are putting up crime scene tape to create a perimeter outside of the library. This allowed Coffman to leave secretly at about 3:24 p.m. unbeknownst to those still waiting to see him. The community event was scheduled from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

By all appearances, it was quite a scene. The five-term Republican congressman, representing Colorado’s most competitive district, set up an event at the Aurora Central Library the day after vowing to repeal “Obamacare” in an op-ed. What he and his staff didn’t know was that roughly 200 people who support the Affordable Care Act would show up, eager to ask how and why Coffman intended to undermine their health security.

The GOP lawmaker, according to his office, ended up meeting “with four people at a time for five minutes each,” before a camera caught him sneaking out the library’s back door, hopping in a car, and being driven away.

According to a local reporter, “more than 100 people” were still waiting to see Coffman when he took off.

Before Election Day, Coffman said he’d “stand up” to Donald Trump if the Republican won. Evidently, that doesn’t include standing up to the president-elect’s plans to radically change the American health care system.

Of course, the broader significance of this extends well beyond one Colorado congressman who fled his own constituents. What stood out about the event in Aurora over the weekend was the fact that voters showed up to voice their concerns about the Republican agenda, which in turn put a conservative lawmaker on the defensive.

Indeed, by some measures, Coffman’s troubles on Saturday were the opening salvo in a larger political fight: there were events held all over the country yesterday, with diverse groups of Americans publicly rallying in support of the ACA and against Republican plans to gut the successful reform law.

In the immediate aftermath of Trump’s election, there were significant protests in areas nationwide, and it was only natural to wonder whether that spirit of activism would continue in the months that followed. The GOP crusade to target Americans’ health benefits provides exactly the kind of motivation needed to get concerned voters off the couch.

It’s not easy to get many thousands of people to show up at public events in mid-January, but Trump’s election lit a match. The fire is just starting to spread.

Peter Thiel - Gays are so VISIBLE in society they will never have rights taken away by Mike Pence

The reaction from the gay community has been harsh, with one writer in The Advocate going so far as to suggest that Mr. Thiel was not even a gay man, because he did not “embrace the struggle.”

“I think Trump is very good on gay rights,” Mr. Thiel says. “I don’t think he will reverse anything. I would obviously be concerned if I thought otherwise.”I ask if he’s comfortable with the idea that Vice President-elect Mike Pence, regarded in the gay community as an unreconstructed homophobe, is a heartbeat away from the presidency.

“You know, maybe I should be worried but I’m not that worried about it,” he replies. “I don’t know. People know too many gay people. There are just all these ways I think stuff has just shifted. For speaking at the Republican convention, I got attacked way more by liberal gay people than by conservative Christian people.

“I don’t think these things will particularly change. It’s like, even if you appointed a whole series of conservative Supreme Court justices, I’m not sure that Roe v. Wade would get overturned, ever. I don’t know if people even care about the Supreme Court. You know, you’d have thought the failure to have a vote on Merrick [Garland] would be a massive issue. And somehow it mattered to Democrats, but it didn’t matter to the public at large.”

Would he like to get married and have kids?

He looks a bit startled by the question, then says: “Maybe.”

FBI investigators say they have found no evidence that Orlando shooter had gay lovers

Since the shooting at an Orlando nightclub last week that left 49 people dead, reports have emerged that gunman Omar Mateen frequented the gay club, used gay dating apps and had gay lovers.

On Tuesday, Univision aired a report in which “Miguel,” a man wearing a disguise to conceal his identity, alleged he had sex with Mateen after meeting him on the gay dating app, Grindr. He said Mateen had sex with other men too, including a threesome with a Puerto Rican who allegedly told Mateen, after having had unprotected sex with him, that he was HIV positive.

But investigators do not consider the man’s account credible, according to one senior law enforcement official with access to the investigation.

In seeking to verify the reports, federal agents have culled Mateen's electronic devices, including a laptop computer and cellphone, as well as electronic communications of those who made the claims, law enforcement officials said.

So far, they have found no photographs, no text messages, no smartphone apps, no gay pornography and no cell-tower location data to suggest that Mateen — who was twice married to women and had a young son — conducted a secret gay life, the officials said.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein: Russia altered the outcome of the election

" A top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee said she believes Russia tried to interfere in the election and that their activity ultimately altered the outcome.

"The answer is yes on both cases," California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said when asked on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"I've had all of the major classified briefings. I have been astonished at what has been a two-year effort [at] Russia to spearfish, to hack, to provide disinformation, propaganda wherever it really could. And I think this has been a very sophisticated effort," Feinstein added. "

---

She said she hopes the ongoing investigation into Russia's interference in the election to be "full and robust," but if it isn't, both she and Sen. Mark Warner, vice-chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, will call for an independent panel to investigate the situation.

---

Feinstein also said she believes the FBI's announcement in late October of finding new emails that could be related to the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server — which Feinstein called an "October surprise" — "did have an impact" on the outcome of the election. Clinton's advisers have said their internal polling showed them winning the election prior to the announcement, and that their numbers tanked following.

But Feinstein wouldn't go so far as to call for FBI Director James Comey to resign.

"I think that's a decision to come when everybody learns much more about what drove this," she said.

She did say, however, that the Justice Department Inspector General's investigation into the FBI's handling of the case would be "critical" in deciding Comey's fate "because there are rumors of all kinds of conflicts within the FBI that have focused on the director."

Did you get whippings when you were young?

My mother believed that children should get whippings when they misbehaved. This was pretty much the norm in the 1970s. My father didn't believe in whippings, but my mother insisted upon them.

We had to bend over the side of the bed and she would take one of my father's belts and whip us hard. It always hurt like hell and we would usually cry.

One time, my older sister grabbed the belt mid-swing and yelled, "You're not gonna whip me anymore, you witch!" I think at that point, my mother realized that we were too old to be spanked and we never got another whipping after that.

Caitlyn Jenner Will Attend Trump’s Inauguration

Bella Thorne Comes Out as Bisexual Following Gregg Sulkin Split

August 23, 2016

UPDATE, 7:37 p.m. ET: Bella Thorne expressed her gratitude for all of the support she received after confirming that she is bisexual. "Aww thank you for all the accepting tweets from everyone," the newly out actress tweeted on Tuesday, August 23. "I love you guys ❤️❤️❤️ #pride."

Original story below:

Revealing her truth. Bella Thorne opened up about her recently questioned sexuality via Twitter and told her fans that she is attracted to both men and women.

After a photo of Thorne, 18, kissing an unidentified girl made its way online this month, many of the Disney Channel alum’s Bellarinas took to social media to press her about her dating preferences.

On Tuesday, August 23, she confirmed fans’ speculation by simply writing, “Yes,” after one of her Twitter followers asked, “are you bisexual?”

After making the revelation, Thorne received an outpouring of support. “Wake me up when these damn girls will officially date @bellathorne i'm just a happy shipper,” one user enthused, while another wrote: “it actually makes me so happy that you're open about it. u do u babygirl.”

Prior to getting cozy with another female, the former Shake It Up star dated Gregg Sulkin for more than a year. On August 15, the pair — who first struck up a romance in June 2015 — announced that they were parting ways in a joint statement to Us Weekly.

“After much thought and soul-searching, we have made the difficult decision to end our relationship,” Thorne and the Faking It actor, 24, told Us. “We will always love each other and have a deep respect for one another, as we have each grown to be better people because of our time together. Our schedules made seeing each other difficult, and we decided that for now this would be best.”

After releasing the statement to Us, the redheaded beauty took to Twitter to clarify her sudden split from Sulkin: “Things just didn’t end up working the way we had hoped. But I’ll always love the bub.”

Before calling it quits with the hunky Brit, the “Jersey” singer gushed to Us about her beau’s best qualities. “He’s one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met,” she told Us last summer. “He’s so kind, so sweet. He’s very caring even when he doesn’t need to be. … And I think maybe it’s because he’s raised in such a great way with British manners.”

Porn star Leo Giamini, a chemist who who says he is says he is well educated was conned by Jake Cruise to BAREBACK!

This shit is so funny nobody could make it up:

Porn Star Accuses Jake Cruise of Bareback Pressure

Written by paul

Tuesday, 30 December 2008 18:30 In a bareback sex discussion on Queer Me Now, the impossibly hunky breakout porn stars Leo Giamani and Vince Ferelli talk decisions, naivite and Jake Cruise.

The comments poured after a post was published previewing some of Leo Giamani's latest scenes. Leo recently became a fisthold name after appearing in the controversial bareback 7-man orgy that launched Jake Cruise's new porn site, CockSureMen.com.

After the post revealed that Leo was continuing to accept bareback gigs, many fans began expressing their disappointment and concerns. Then, bodybuilding bottom Vince Ferelli offered some pretty damning two cents:

... Some [bareback porn stars] may have been convinced early in their career by directors that took advantage of their naivety (Jake Cruise), so I canx92t fault them as a person for it ...

If a model has repeatedly been in barebacking scenes, then by all means, they can be considered a barebacking model.

But if they were conned by Jake Cruise, or the likes, into barebacking once, then they do deserve a second chance ...

I almost got conned into working with Jake Cruise by my former scout before Jon Royce and Robert Van Damme took me under their wings and set me straight. Seems like Vince (left) has a pretty big boner to pick with our favorite geriatric temptress. Is Vince jealous -- as we are -- that Jake Cruise is getting rich by paying for sex?

Or does Vince have a valid point about the blurriness of consensual lines when it comes to young broke boys and their eager porn mentors?

A former bareback twink porn star named Aaron Taylor (right) seemed to echo Vince's concerns when he told GayPornBlog over a year ago:

... i was young and very stupid. I feel like it was a BIG mistake, but at the time i was broke and needed money and i was offered an extra hundred dollars for it. If i could go back and change this I would. It is totally UNSAFE and needs to be stopped ...

In case you're wondering what Leo Giamani himself has to say, he was kind enough to weigh in on the discussion as well:

... I would like to make it clear that I get tested every 30 days and am 100% disease free. I would also like everyone to be aware that I have not done any bareback scenes in over 100 days. I am very educated, more than most people in this business.

I actually have a Bachelors in chemistry and did very well on the MCATs ... I want everyone to be aware that I will never do any type of bareback scene again. I want everyone to know that I always use condoms in my personal life.

In addition, I have only performed bareback sex in videos which were done with disease free models whose tests were recent and verified ...

We're glad that Leo (pictured left with Jake Cruise) has vowed never to do bareback again.

We're also glad that he did well on his MCATs.

Do you support Trump policy of building SAFE ZONES in Syria than accepting Refugees?

Trump says safe zones in Syria should have been built for combating refugee crisis

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has said “safe zones” funded by the Gulf states should have been built inside Syria to combat the refugee crisis.

“I think we should have built safe zones in Syria,” said Trump in response to a question asking if he still viewed German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s policy on refugees as “insane,” a phrase he had used during his campaign. “Would have been a lot less expensive,” Trump said in an interview with the U.K.’s The Times and Germany’s Bild newspapers.

“Uh, get the Gulf states to pay for ’em who aren’t coming through, I mean they’ve got money that nobody has,” he said, adding that Merkel had made a “big mistake.”

Turkey has long argued for the need for a “no-fly” or “safe zone” zone along its Syrian border, with the aim of clearing Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants from the border and stemming a wave of migration that has fueled tensions in Europe.

So do you support Trump "Safe Zone" policy? Or do you support accepting Refugees fleeing the war (that have been vetted by UN)? Choose only one. Vote below then discuss.

HBO’s ‘The Young Pope’ is confounding, captivating and one of the most unsettling shows in years

At once confounding and captivating, HBO’s new limited series “The Young Pope” (premiering Sunday) is among the strangest and most unsettling shows I’ve reviewed in several years — the morose story of an ice-blooded American cardinal, Lenny Belardo (Jude Law), who is chosen to be the next pope, even though he’s only in his 40s.

Taking the name Pius XIII, Lenny immediately transforms into a maliciously capricious pontiff, confusing his peers in the College of Cardinals and striking fear across Vatican City about his true intentions — alarming even the papal cook with his rude refusal of her vast breakfast buffet on his first day, asking instead that he be brought a Cherry Coke Zero each morning and nothing more.

Eschewing long-held systems and protocols that keep the Vatican and the worldwide Roman Catholic Church humming along, Pope Pius seems intent on walling himself and the Holy See off from the world, all in the name of God’s glory.

Referencing reclusive or pseudonymous artists of his time (from J.D. Salinger to the graffiti artist Banksy), and citing the ultimate marketing potential of mystery, Pius tells the Vatican’s savvy communications director, Sofia Dubois (Cécile de France), that he wishes to never be seen in public. He will not pose for photos, nor will his image grace any official souvenirs. He also fires the cardinal in charge of official papal trips, telling him that his job no longer exists, because this pope won’t travel. The world shall come to him.

In other words: Christ, what an A-hole.

As envisioned by Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino (who won the Oscar for best foreign film in 2014 for “The Great Beauty”), it’s difficult to figure out why “The Young Pope” is here and why it’s so instantly fascinating, or what the series might be trying to tell us about faith and organized religion. The first of five episodes made available for review (there are 10 episodes in all, airing on successive Sunday and Monday nights) are deliberately slow; only in the fifth hour does Lenny/Pius’s plan begin to sharpen or make any religious sense. Despite the pace, the show is a chilling, challenging and visually stunning piece of work.

Silvio Orlando is superb as Cardinal Angelo Voiello, the Vatican’s secretary of state, who is the first to realize that Pope Pius intends to break radically with tradition. It falls to Voiello to attempt to reason with this power-mad newbie, who, we learn, won the majority of the cardinals’ votes because he was seen as a safe bridge between a conservative candidate (James Cromwell as Cardinal Michael Spencer) and the church’s more progressive wing.

I am reluctant these days to read into every new TV show a fresh analogy to our present-day transfer of power in the United States, but it’s almost impossible to watch “The Young Pope” and not think of another newly anointed dilettante who shuns expertise and institutional precedence in favor of a radical reordering of power. To underscore his distrust of the system, Pius immediately summons his oldest ally: Sister Mary (Diane Keaton), an American nun who raised him in an orphanage after his parents abandoned him as a young boy.

Sister Mary is as much of a cipher as the pope. Now present at all his meetings as his personal adviser, she briefly becomes his Kellyanne Conway (of sorts), sent to face a news conference after the pope’s first and perhaps only address to the masses gathered at St. Peter’s Square. Held at night to prevent press photographers from getting a good picture of him, the address quickly turns into a firebrand screed about faith. Rather than elucidate or soften the pope’s words, Sister Mary reads a statement from the pope emphasizing His Holiness’s infallibility, and his indifference to any mere mortal who would challenge or respond to him.

Rumors have long circulated about Brazilian soap star Leonardo Vieira—best known for soaps like Senhora do Destino, Prova de Amor and Caminhos do Coração—but it wasn’t confirmed until a photo of him kissing another man went viral in December.

Some fans congratulated Vieira, but he also received a slew of negative comments from trolls, who called him “pig” and “trash,” and declared “the world is lost.”

The 48-year-old has since said he was never really in the closet, noting that his conservative, Catholic family has known he was gay for decades and fully accepts him. He says he’s using the incident as an opportunity to affect change.

Vieira reported the online harassment to Brazil’s Human Rights Commission, and wrote an open letter to the press denouncing the attacks, saying, “I never felt like a criminal or to blame for being homosexual… the fact of being gay never hurt anyone, if anything it hurt myself.”

“Being a human being with good character—honest, loyal, loyal, polite, kind, generous and other qualities—is much more important than who you kiss or relate to sexually, regardless of whether you are male or female.”

We say whomever Viera chooses to share his life with is pretty lucky.

In a democracy, anyone has the ability to influence the outcome of an election.

As much as I wanted Trump to lose, I still don't see outside influences as being a legitimate excuse for his win. The number of fake news releases, paid for rally attendees etc all had their effect on the election. News releases from around the world certainly affected the mind set of many without most even realizing they were being influenced. I honestly believe the majority of trump voters were simply protesting their feeling of having been disenfranchised by so many illegal aliens coming into the US. Allowing this influx of over 10 million into the US has had vastly negative results mainly on the working class. Remember, you don't have to have much in assets here in the US for one to refer to themselves as middle class. Granted the illegals primarily work for less, the net affect was everyone who works, ended up working for less. All these illegals had to have a place to live and most lived in major cities like Los Angeles, San Fran, Chicago and the like. These are the cities with the most expensive property and rental costs in the nation. Los Angeles alone would have over one million vacancies if the illegals were sent home. Rents and home prices would fall like a rock if this were to happen. Wages would be forced higher if there weren't illigals willing and available to do the job for minimum wage.

This is just one of the reasons working class types voted for trump.

Trump: I'm almost done with my Obamacare replacement plan!

So he tells the Washington Post today.

[quote]“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.” People covered under the law “can expect to have great health care. It will be in a much simplified form. Much less expensive and much better.”

How the fuck do they plan to pay for it? No idea!

[quote]Republican leaders have said that they will not strand people who gained insurance under the ACA without coverage. But it remains unclear from either Trump’s comments in the interview or recent remarks by GOP leaders on Capitol Hill how they intend to accomplish that.

[quote]Timing could be difficult as Trump puts an emphasis on speed. Obama’s law took more than 14 months of debate and hundreds of hearings. To urge lawmakers on, Trump plans to attend a congressional Republican retreat in Philadelphia this month.

The Deep State

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”

Søren Kierkegaard

"... there is another government concealed behind the one that is visible at either end of Pennsylvania Avenue, a hybrid entity of public and private institutions ruling the country according to consistent patterns in season and out, connected to, but only intermittently controlled by, the visible state whose leaders we choose.

My analysis of this phenomenon is not an exposé of a secret, conspiratorial cabal; the state within a state is hiding mostly in plain sight, and its operators mainly act in the light of day. Nor can this other government be accurately termed an 'establishment.'

All complex societies have an establishment, a social network committed to its own enrichment and perpetuation. In terms of its scope, financial resources and sheer global reach, the American hybrid state, the Deep State, is in a class by itself. That said, it is neither omniscient nor invincible. The institution is not so much sinister (although it has highly sinister aspects) as it is relentlessly well entrenched.

Far from being invincible, its failures, such as those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, are routine enough that it is only the Deep State’s protectiveness towards its higher-ranking personnel that allows them to escape the consequences of their frequent ineptitude."

'In the event that we are needed, we will form a wall of meat,' he told Fox & Friends Saturday, adding that while the group is non-violent, they would stand up to any dangerous protesters. 'We'll be shoulder to shoulder with our brothers and we'll be toe-to-toe with anyone who's going to break through police barriers,' he said.

Fast food employee accused of putting menstrual blood on a customer’s burger

The Mississippi State Department of Health, the Columbus, Mississippi police department and Jack’s Family Restaurant, Inc. have all been investigating an alleged food contamination incident with particularly disturbing details.

According to a Facebook post that quickly went viral, the mother of a former Jack’s employee in Columbus alleged that another fast food worker put menstrual blood on a hamburger and licked the cheese that went on it before serving the meal to a customer last Saturday.

Tabatha Hollins of New Hope said her 16-year-old daughter used to work at one of the restaurant’s 130 or so locations across the South. When she saw the other employee put her bodily fluids on the burger, she spoke to one of the managers on duty, who served the food anyway, Hollins claims.

After calling the company’s corporate offices, Hollins’s daughter was fired for making “false reports,” according to Hollins’s Facebook post. In a statement to WJTV, Jack’s Family Restaurant said the employee who allegedly contaminated the food was “terminated several days ago for unrelated reasons and no longer works for us. At the time of her dismissal Jack’s was not aware of these allegations.”

That Facebook post quickly drew shock and outrage on social media, and led to both the state department of health and the fast food chain to announce investigations.

Lewis also said in a statement that the police have been in contact with the person who allegedly received the tainted hamburger. However, the department did not offer any possible explanations for why the employee may have done it.

Jack’s, which is concentrated in the southeast, announced it was also launching its own inquiry into the situation.

“At Jack’s, we take these allegations very seriously and are working to determine the validity of these claims. Additionally, we are committed to taking further action if appropriate,” the company’s statement read.

The Commercial Dispatch reports that Jack's last received an A rating from the Mississippi Department of Health for a 2015 health inspection.

What happened? The book says guests at the wedding were murmuring this will never last....but they never say why.

Woodward and Bernstein

Popularly known as Woodstein, they're both still around.

They wouldn't take this on in their old age but they have decades of great contacts - especially Woodward. They could prove to be very useful in the wars to come. I've seen Bernstein out and about on the Fuckface scandal story but I haven't seen Bob Woodward. He may be appearing on shows I don't watch.

Let's Discuss Falcon Crest

I have been watching season four of Falcon Crest recently and what a great show it was!

Jane Wyman as Angela Channing was so awesome. So hateful, but you wanted her to come out on top.

Who were your favorite characters? What were your favorite plotlines over the years? Which Vicki Gioberti was your preferred? Why has Ana Alicia barely worked at all since the show ended? Why is Lorenzo Lamas so cheesy? Apollonia?

In most cities a foot of snow is not a big deal, but Portland is so rarely that there's no infrastructure to deal with it: everything's been shut down for days. It's like living in a disaster area.

I am about to pay off my mortgage

I am honestly not trying to brag - have not put this on Facebook or anywhere else - just wanted to share, as many of you have probably done this already, and probably for mortgages much higher than mine, BUT.....

It is an overwhelming feeling. I am single and I did it ENTIRELY on my own, never took a DIME from anyone. My brother, who is wealthy, threw in $10k on my down payment when I bought the house in 2003, but I paid him back in full within 6 months. Went from a 30 yr into a 15 about 5 years in. I can't believe I have actually done it; it feels like the greatest achievement of my life. I feel like Linda Loman in DEATH OF A SALESMAN, saying, "I'm free and clear!"

Are They Working on Creating Their Cover Up Now?

Or did they already have that in place before the "election" in November?

It's always the cover up that takes them down but in this case it's hard to say. Treason (or the violation of the Logan Act) is such a sensational crime, even a massive attempt to cover it up might not overwhelm it.

I wonder how long it will be before he has to resign?

Closeted Congressmen

Paul Begala famously called Washington "Hollywood for ugly people." While he was referring to the neediness of actors and politicians, can the same be said for the number of closet cases as well? I know one of the longtime Senators (now retired) from my home state is gay, and while it was well known in our state, it was never mentioned in DC circles and never became news. Aside from DL favs Ms. Lindsey Graham, Louie Gohmert, and Marco Rubio, who else in DC is gay/bi?

I flippin love Kylie Minogue

Because she's never been huge or mainstream here in the US (barring her brief global domination with the Fever album and the monster singles Can't Get You Out of My Head and Love At First Sight), she's often been able to be just-a-tiny-bit-weird, a little left of center when compared other pop singers. And even when she's doing something ridiculously camp and over the top - like when she wears an entire ostrich farm's worth of showgirl feathers - she has this sly smile and knowing sparkle in her eye that seems to say "isn't this ridiculous?" all while celebrating the ridiculousness at the same time. That's a difficult line to walk. To be sublime and ridiculous at the same time.

Porn performers who are really great at fucking

You can be an absolutely gorgeous porn performer and not be very good at sex (like Ken Ryker). And you can be not very attractive, but absolutely fantastic at fucking: I am turned off by Rafael Alancar's many implants, but I have to admit he is one of the best aggressive tops out there.

Who are the porn performers who are genuinely awesomely talented at throwing a mean fuck--either as a top or as a bottom or as versatile? I am not asking who is necessarily the most physically attractive, but rather who is the most talented at sex.

A few who come to mind:

*Adam Killian (versatile)

*Tom Chase (good at both, but unbeatable as a top)

*J. R. Bronson (hungry and gifted bottom)

Best Actress Oscar winners of the 70s

Who would you have voted for?

1970 I guess I'd go with Glenda Jackson but I'm not really wild about her.

1971 definitely Fonda

1972 Liza. Diana Ross didn't even bother doing the accent

1973 Ellen Burstyn, riveting scenes early in the film with Jason Miller

1974 Burstyn again. So likable and funny.

1975 Fletcher I guess. Not much choice

1976 Dunaway is brilliant so I'd go with her how can you not love Sissy

1977 Keaton deserved it for Goodbar I guess I'd vote for her in Annie Hall as a make up.

1978 Ingrid Bergman

1979 Our Sally

the academy didn't do too bad that decade. I agree a lot. How about you?

Obama Extends Sanctions On Russia Over Aggression In Ukraine By One Year

U.S. President Barack Obama on January 13 extended all U.S. sanctions on Russia over its annexation of Crimea and aggression in Ukraine by one year through March 2018.

The move appears designed to make it harder for U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to roll back the sanctions after Obama leaves office on January 20. Trump has said he wants to improve relations with Russia and would take a second look at the sanctions, although several of his chosen cabinet members said this week that they support the sanctions.

In extending the sanctions, which were due to expire in March 2017, Obama said the Russian government and other people and organizations targeted by the sanctions have "undermined democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine" by their "use of force in Ukraine" and thereby "threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity."

Because of the threat to Ukraine, Obama said, Russia's actions "pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States."

The European Union has parallel sanctions on Russia that are due to expire in July. Italy and other EU members have said they would push to end the sanctions, especially if Trump carries out a softening of U.S. policy towards Russia.
