At 37 Pro Racing Driver Danny Watts Comes To Terms He Is Gay

The 37-year-old star has told his fans that he identifies as gay after years of struggling to come to terms with his sexuality.

The professional racing driver – who recently retired from the sport – revealed that he felt he had to keep his true self hidden while competing in the largely macho world of motor racing.

“There isn’t any one moment that stands out in my mind as the moment I realised I would need to live in the closet if I wanted my motorsport career to go anywhere; it was just a general feeling I got,” Danny explained.

“There were enough gay jokes and homophobic slurs to go around, and I felt like if I lifted my head out of the trenches, I’d be immediately annihilated.

“All the other guys in the paddock had girlfriends, so I got one to blend in. When that relationship ended, I got another one, and so I continued pretending to be straight for seventeen years.

“I knew from quite young that I preferred gay porn to straight, but kept that side of my life hidden to avoid upsetting people in my team, people in racing, and the wider public.”

Danny admitted that he became “one of the worst of the womanisers” in an attempt to conceal his sexuality, while adding that he didn’t have any gay friends in fear that “someone would notice and connect the dots”.

“Eventually, something in me flipped, and I couldn’t keep it in any more,” he said. “I came out to my wife, who told me she’d known I was gay for ages and she was happy I’d finally come out.

Lisa Marie Presley’s Dark Secrets Reveals during Rehab Stay

While battling for her life and sanity in a Los Angeles rehab center, Elvis Presley‘s only child bared her darkest secrets

Now, a source who spent time at the facility with the pill-popping beauty has revealed Lisa Marie’s shattering revelations, including:

-A close pal of her dad molested her when she was just a girl — and she had a very twisted childhood.

-During her “sham” marriage to Michael Jackson, she discovered stomach-turning evidence her second husband was having sex with young boys.

-She was “unwanted” by her mother, Priscilla, who tried to lock her away in a psych ward.

Lisa Marie confessed the failure of her marriage to Michael Lockwood convinced her to check into the rehab center, which also offers psychological and behavioral treatment, to beat her prescription pill addiction, the source told Radar.

After slapping Lockwood with divorce papers in June and charging he’d robbed her blind and left her emotionally shattered and thinking of death, Lisa Marie said she “collapsed,” the insider revealed.

She told her fellow patient: “All of a sudden, I f*****g broke and I broke hard. Not necessarily that I wanted to die. . .just lay in bed. I’m talking to the pieces left of me, and I’m trying to remember who I was, because I was strong — but [drugs] completely changed me.”

Elvis’ daughter also proclaimed to her fellow addicts: “My marriage was a lie!”

Of course now, as Radar readers know, the former couple’s twin daughters have been placed in the care of California’s Department of Children and Family Services after the singer allegedly discovered “disturbing photos and videos of children” on Lockwood’s computer. Does she have a pattern?

Lisa Marie said she was shattered when her mom took her ex-husband’s side — and blasted Lisa Marie as “crazy and drug-addicted,” said the source.

“She said Priscilla actually talked about putting Lisa Marie in a mental ward after she suffered a relapse during drug treatment,” the insider told Radar.

Lisa Marie also said she’d been a vicim of childhood sex abuse — by one of Elvis’ closest friends — but it didn’t go into detail, according to the source.

Radar’s source also said the singer’s troubled childhood included a sordid relationship with one of Priscilla’s post-Elvis boyfriends — 28-year-old model Michael Edwards — when she was just 13!

Kate Hudson in "Almost Famous"

I worked at a video store in LA when "Almost Famous" was released, and one day a woman came in after seeing it, and said that Kate Hudson will never look as good as she does in it, and will never give a better performance.

At the time, she was getting a lot of publicity, and I thought she might go on to be like her mom, and there are moments in the movie that remind me of her.

But I don't think there is one thing she has done since then that has been remotely interesting or authentic, and that she did peak with that film.

Have you liked anything Kate Hudson has been in other than "Almost Famous?"

I just watched a dvd of China Seas last night. She was so screechy and amateurish and she looked like a garish painted doll - and this was in b & w! The other ladies in the film, even Rosalind Russell, looked sexier and more appealing.

Her platinum hair looked like a wig so I googled "Jean Harlow wig" and sure enough, wiki said she had to wear a wig in the film because her own hair had begun falling out from all of the bleaching. A year later she was dead.

Why do Americans refrigerate eggs and dairy?

Americans love refrigeration, and eggs, cheese, yogurt and other dairy are high on the list of items we rush to get into the refrigerator after a trip to grocery store. Meanwhile, our culinary compatriots in Europe, Asia and other parts of world happily leave beautiful bowls of eggs on their kitchen counters.

So what gives?

Mostly, it’s about washing. In the U.S., egg producers with 3,000 or more laying hens must wash their eggs. Methods include using soap, enzymes or chlorine.

The idea is to control salmonella, a potentially fatal bacteria that can cling to eggs. The Centers for Disease control estimates that salmonella causes about 1.2 million illnesses a year, resulting in 450 deaths — though not all of those cases are traced to eggs.

The bacteria can be passed through the porous shell to the inside of the egg from material on the outside, though in rarer cases it can infect the ovaries of a chicken and infect the eggs from the inside.

Is Russia on the verge of annexing Ukraine?

Russian president Vladimir Putin has signed an order recognizing passports issued by separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine, prompting alarm from the United States and Ukrainian officials amid fears it could represent a step by Moscow towards declaring the rebel regions independent states.

The executive order recognizes passports and other documents issued by the self-declared People's Republics of Lugansk and Donetsk, the two rebel republics that have established themselves with Russian support in an ongoing war against Ukraine's government. The republics are currently unrecognized -- including by Russia -- but Moscow has secretly supplied them with arms and money, and has covertly deployed its own military to carve out their territory.

The order published by the Kremlin said residents of Lugansk and Donetsk would now be able to enter Russia "just upon presenting IDs issued by relevant bodies de facto operating in the given areas," referring to the separatist authorities. It also recognized birth and marriage certificates, drivers licenses and educational qualifications among other documents issued by the rebels.

The order shakes the stagnant conflict and in making it, the Kremlin appeared to be laying down another test of the Trump administration as it weighs its policy on Ukraine and Russia, with the order published even as Vice President Mike Pence appeared before European security leaders in Germany to reassure them the U.S. is committed to their defense before a newly aggressive Moscow.

The U.S. embassy in Kiev swiftly issued an expression of dismay over the Russian order. On Twitter the embassy wrote that the step "is alarming and contradicts the agreed-upon goals of the Minsk Agreement," referring to the two-year-old peace agreements meant to end the fighting and which calls for the rebel areas to be reintegrated into Ukraine.

Senior Ukrainian officials warned that Putin's order could be seen as ending that agreement. Oleksander Turchynov, secretary of Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council, said in a statement: "This step by Kremlin completely destroys the Minsk process and is equal to Russia's statement about an exit from that."

The Kremlin and other Russian officials downplayed the order, saying it was temporary and only removed a burdensome bureaucratic hurdle for residents in the rebel areas. Russia has denied supporting the rebels with money or militarily, despite evidence to the contrary.

The rebel regions in Ukraine's east have been in limbo as the conflict has settled into a poorly observed truce, with the front lines effectively fixed but fire still exchanged on a daily basis. Following Russia's invasion and swift incorporation of Crimea in 2014, the rebels in the east had hoped they would be next. But recently, they have complained of feeling increasingly forgotten by Moscow, which has shown little interest in formally absorbing them.

Now, though, analysts in Russia and in Western capitals said they believed Putin's order today could indicate Moscow was slowly moving towards recognition.

That is how the separatists publicly interpreted it. The leader of the Lugansk People's Republic, Igor Plotniskii, hailed it as "another step towards international recognition of our sovereignty," Russian news agencies reported.

The move recalls a playbook used by the Kremlin in other separatist conflicts within its neighbors' borders. In Russia, analysts quickly referred to Russian actions in its short war with the former Soviet republic of Georgia in 2008. In that conflict, Moscow backed two breakaway regions, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which have since become effectively incorporated into Russia.

Shortly after its troops bulldozed Georgian forces out of the regions, Russia recognized identity documents from their separatist governments, who at the time celebrated that as a sign Moscow would soon recognize them as independent states. Not long after that, Russia did, becoming one of only four countries (including the tiny island of Nauru) to do so.

"I stabbed an innocent woman to death earlier today..."

Have we had a thread on this murderous little bitch yet? Meet Pearl Moen of Austin.

“I stabbed an innocent woman to death earlier today. … It was absolutely fantastic. Murder gives me a high unlike any other. It feels like this crisp unreality, flashing and sparkling, adrenaline and shock.”

While these lines might sound like the demented writings of John Wayne Gacy or perhaps Charles Manson, they actually appeared in what police said was a diary kept by a teenage girl named Pearl Moen, 18.

She was mistaken about one thing, though — the woman she stabbed did not die.

On Friday, Moen pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 15 years in prison for attempted murder, in large part because of these words, and others, scribbled in her diary.

They referred to the morning of Nov. 17, 2015.

As the sun rose over the Hyde Park neighborhood in Austin on that Tuesday, a young man and woman sat on the sidewalk outside his apartment complex, savoring the last precious minutes of a date.

Moen, who was then 17, watched intently from behind some bushes. As TV station KEYE noted, when the man ran upstairs to use the bathroom about 7:30 a.m., the woman began to doze off in the morning light.

That’s when Moen struck, bursting from the bushes and brandishing a knife. She stabbed the woman 21 times and left her there to bleed."

Why Do Gay Men Seem To Idolize And Relate To Women?

We all know this is true. Yes, there's misogynistic gay men, but still, the majority of gays can relate to women more so than to men for some reason. Is it because we grow up gay, and can't really fit in with a society full of straight males, so they look towards the other gender? Is there truth to gay men's brains are more in line with women's? I'm just really curious. It's not bad to somehow have a woman as a role model, but with gay men, it seems overwhelmingly so, more than they can relate to straight men, or men period.

What do you all think of "Carousel" (Rodgers and Hammerstein's)?

It's my favorite musical and for sentimental reasons - I saw it when I was 8 years old at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre in Lincoln Center in 1994. Audra McDonald gave a glorious performance (and won her first Tony). An old lady in a huge fur coat saw me and said, "My my what is a little boy doing at a show like this?" She must have known I was "different" because she gave my mother a knowing smile as I sang to her "Mister Snow" with such queeny enthusiasm... She gave me her front row seats and I watched it all unfold in a state of pure delight... It was magical. Simply magical - for a 8 yr old small town boy to see such a spectacle.... I had been going through a huge Broadway phase at the time.

Anyway, the score is - especially on that 1994 Broadway revival CD - simply sublime. It was, I read somewhere, R&H's favorite show personally.

I almost don't want them to revive it because I thought the 1994 version was so beautiful, but if they did I think they need to find a powerhouse Billy. Surprisingly no man that has ever played that part - and its one of the best male leads in musical theatre - ever won a Tony Award. If Paolo Szot can win a Tony for Emile, then they've got to find a Billy Bigelow that can just blow the roof off the place.

Iowa is latest state to move Hard Right

After decades as the crossroads of prairie populists and checkbook conservatives, Iowa has suddenly become solidly Republican like many of its Midwestern neighbors. It was one of four states - along with Kentucky, Missouri and New Hampshire - that flipped to complete GOP control in the November election, but Iowa's rush of new legislation has been the most intense. In an all-night session last week, Iowa lawmakers approved a bill similar to one enacted in Wisconsin six years ago that strips most public sector unions of long-held collective bargaining rights, including health insurance.

Jeff Orvis, a veteran northern Iowa high school teacher, said he sees the measure leaving permanent damage to Iowa's century-old reputation for quality schools, enshrined on the state's 2004 commemorative quarter: "Foundation in education."

"Now, I don't even see how Iowa is going to attract good teachers," said Jeff Orvis, a union representative from northern Iowa. "That's my biggest worry."

Among other items, Republicans also are pressing to eliminate state money for all Planned Parenthood services, outlaw the use of fetal tissue for medical research, subject doctors who perform abortions to lawsuits by women at any time in the future, scrap minimum wage increases in Iowa's largest counties and block municipalities from enacting sexual orientation discrimination protections.

There's also talk of a tax cut, despite a $110 million shortfall in the current budget year.

"We're doing big things for Iowa," Senate Majority Leader Bill Dix said. "That means taking some risks."

Statehouse GOP leaders including Dix say they are merely capitalizing on the election, which also saw Republican Donald Trump carry the state's electoral votes after Democrat Barack Obama did so twice. Some on either side of the divide see a state with a tradition for social priorities and fiscal discipline reflecting a more lasting imbalance.

Thousands protested at the Capitol in Des Moines last week. And Senate Democrats held an all-night debate Wednesday night, after every member of the minority spoke to oppose it, while only two Republicans stood to promote it. Republicans stymied each of Democrats' dozens of attempts to amend the bill.

Democrats' frustration spilled over after one member noticed a Republican House member wearing headphones plugged into his phone during the debate.

"What could possibly be more important right now?" Abbie Finkenauer of Dubuque shouted. "Get off your phone and pay attention."

Shannon Wurzer, a Republican teacher from northeast Iowa, said she was shocked when she saw the party she supports refusing to consider any of the amendments.

"They weren't giving an inch. It didn't seem like the Republicans were even listening," she said. "It was all their way. And that's not what we're used to in Iowa."

Betty Andrews of Des Moines was texting a friend whose late parents had been union stewards in Cedar Rapids. "They'd be rolling over in their graves," she said. "This isn't the Iowa they knew."

Dix rejected that Iowa has shifted in a lasting way beyond its half-century tradition for political balance. Instead, he says Republicans are seizing upon voter sentiment, which coincides with 20 years of pent-up Republican policy changes.

To act cautiously in light of November's heavy Republican legislative victories could hurt the GOP's chances of holding its majority, so it's all or nothing, Dix said. "That's what our mandate is, and to me it's not one that's very patient."

Republican Ron Corbett, House speaker the last time his party controlled the Iowa Capitol, said Republicans showed more willingness to work with Democrats back then.

That's also in part because rural Democrats were more powerful, he said. Today, the rural-urban divide in the Iowa Legislature more closely resembles that nationwide, with Republicans dominating rural areas and Democrats the urban districts.

Exacting a penalty on the opposition "could always come back to haunt you," Corbett said.

‘These are facts’: CNN’s Jake Tapper humiliates Trump for calling news reports ‘conspiracy theories’

“How do I illustrate what conspiracy theory is?” Tapper continued. “How about this one about Ted Cruz’s father,” he said rolling footage of then-candidate Trump claiming his former rival’s father was involved in John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

“That’s a conspiracy theory,” Tapper said. “Or how about this one, about President Obama,” he added, playing footage of Trump in 2011 insinuating that the former president was not born in the United States.

“THOSE are conspiracy theories,” Tapper said. “These are facts.”

The CNN host then turned to Trump’s hypocrisy regarding leaks. Though his administration is currently fixated on the historic amount of internal information coming from the White House, Tapper noted the president was more than happy to use leaked information to his advantage during the campaign.

“No president likes leaks … but it’s worth noting candidate Trump’s path to power was tread on a road of leaks,” Tapper said, playing a montage of the president praising information from WikiLeaks and the FBI that proved damning for rival Hillary Clinton.

“He didn’t have a problem with leaks then,” Tapper said, adding, “It’s not a moral position if you only hold it when it applies to you.”

Angela Merkel says Europe must take MORE refugees and Islam 'isn't source of terror'

The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take displaced people from Syria and Iraq. She also said Islam "is not the cause of terrorism" and that combatting extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries.

In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin's Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East.

Mrs Merkel has come under fire for taking in up to one million refugees amid security concerns and a string of migrant sex attacks across Germany.

After the Berlin lorry attack at a Christmas market in December, ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage said events such as that will be "Merkel's legacy".

Mrs Merkel had been a strong critic of Brexit, saying she had "deep regrets" about it.

Daily Star Online has revealed how Brexit may not reduce migration, with 650,000 immigrants set to head to our shores anyway.

She will go to the polls in September against Social Democrat candidate Martin Schulz, the former European Parliament President.

On Putin, she said Europe's ties with Russia remained challenging, but it was important to work with them in the fight against Islamist terrorism.

Actors who suddenly are in multiple commercials for various products

Why do some obscure actors suddenly start appearing in commercials for multiple products? Take the case of Gabriel Tigerman all of a sudden it seems like he is in half of the TV commercials showing, he is in Discover Card, Midas, Alka Seltzer, Geico, Haines underwear, Wendy's, Burger King, Dairy Queen.

What is so special about Gabriel Tigerman? I have seen this happen with other actors over time, they will be appearing in multiple commercials for different companies all at the same time and then disappear never to be heard from again.

"Populist correctness: the new PC culture of Trump's America and Brexit Britain"

[quote] The right prides itself on being straight-talking, on calling a spade a spade, but when it comes to calling a Nazi a Nazi or a racist a racist – well then, things are more vague. They are the “alt-right”, please. Use unacceptable terminology and they will get very angry indeed.

[quote] But what’s this? I thought an easily triggered outrage button was the preserve of politically correct liberals? From the vitriol the right heaps on “sensitive snowflakes”, you’d think they have skins as thick as elephants. Far from it: nobody is offended by quite such a wide range of banal things as conservatives. Everything from insufficiently Christmassy Starbucks coffee cups to Budweiser ads to Kermit the Frog’s lack of trousers seems to cause an outpouring of outrage. And, while jokes about minorities or women may be considered just banter, don’t even try joking about white people – that’s reverse-racism! Indeed, many triggered rightwingers recently deleted their Netflix accounts in protest against a new comedy show called Dear White People.

Carson, who is expected to be confirmed as HUD secretary by the Senate, had no knowledge that Shermichael Singleton was going to be escorted out of the building Wednesday until after it happened. The ordeal was first reported Thursday by the New York Times.

The source said that according to Carson, he was informed by HUD aide Sheila Daniels by phone while having lunch in Washington.

Trump fatigue’ is real and it’s sweeping the nation. Here’s why we must stay woke.

Are you tired of hearing about Donald Trump? Do the words “Melania,” “Ivanka,” “fake news,” and “Russia” no longer make you want to cringe, tremble convulsively, or cry yourself to sleep? Do you find yourself no longer phased by that daily barrage of doomful news?

If so, you might be suffering from Politics Fatigue Syndrome, a comically unofficial disorder coined by NPR that is plaguing millions in the United States. Major symptoms include feelings of sheer exhaustion, disdain, and utter hopelessness for anything political-related. In other words, it’s that feeling of being so f-ing over it (“it” being Trump).

Related: Time’s new cover is going to royally piss off Donald Trump

And the masses are starting to feel it. Whether plastered on social media, or magnified in comment sections online, there is no denying that people are growing weary of Trump’s constant orange presence on every screen imaginable.

Not that reporter Mark Joseph Stern, who write about LGBTQ issues for Slate, necessarily blames those complaining. After all, it seems one cannot go a single minute without news breaking about the president or his cabinet, he says.

“It feels as though, if you step away from Twitter for even a few minutes, you will have lost an entire news cycle, or missed some huge development,” Stern tells Queerty. “There is just a constant flow of leaks, drama and bombshells from the [Trump] administration, and it certainly feels exhausting, not just as a reporter, but as a private citizen. Keeping up with everything is really tiring.”

Related: Donald Trump claims to have the will of the people, but Facebook video tells a different story

At the same time, Stern realizes there is a certain luxury in being able to say something like that.

“I think it is a sign of privilege to be able to say, ‘I am tired of hearing about Trump and the government,’” he says. “Because if, for instance, you are an undocumented immigrant, or a person that relies on the Affordable Care Act to receive health insurance, you don’t have the luxury of not thinking about [Trump and his administration], since [they] have an incredible amount of power over you and your life.”

TYT's Michael Tracey Speaks Truth, Triggers Hillbots

He's one of the few who is coming down as hard on the Ratings Uber Alles press corps as he is on the Cheetoh-in-Chief.

Expand your minds.

[quote] Of course journalists far and wide were utterly transfixed by Trump’s big press conference yesterday, in which he meandered, ranted, bragged, and occasionally touched on some nuggets of truth: that’s the Trump formula. It’s what he’s been doing literally since he began running for president, all the way back in June 2015. For some reason however, his antics are continually presented as shocking and new, rather than a very predictable continuation of what he’s been doing for approaching 2 straight years.

[quote] Trump’s press conferences — and even the White House Daily Press Briefings — have become must-see TV for the political and entertainment media, who love to sit around on Twitter and compete for who can come up with the wittiest anti-Trump riposte in realtime. That’s what the central role of the journalistic community seems to be now: seeing who can rattle off the best Trump jokes, rather than report soberly on what is actually happening with the federal government. Trump loves ginning up petty feuds, and the media are happy to reciprocate. They feed each others’ worst instincts.

[quote] It should absolutely go without saying at this point that there are innumerable real issues on which Trump ought to be held accountable. A discerning, sober, tactically-minded media would do this. But what were the White House press corps preoccupied with yesterday? Russia. More Russia. It never ends.

People Are Trolling Matt Damon For His Role In "The Great Wall" By Thanking Him For Being Asian

Matt Damon’s latest film, The Great Wall, was released yesterday. Ever since it was announced, a lot of people have been critical of the film for perpetuating a myth that people of color need to be saved by white people.

Comedian Jenny Yang attended the film’s premiere last night, and afterward tweeted sarcastically to thank Damon for his role in saving the Chinese people in the film.

#ThankYouMattDamon soon began trending on Twitter, with people thanking the actor for saving China.

More and more people then started to thank Damon for, uh, well…

They thanked him for being basically every Asian mom, dad, and grandparent.

They called him and Scarlett Johansson – who stars in the much criticized upcoming remake of Ghost in the Shell – their favorite Asian couple…

And thanked him for his role in several famous movies.

They praised Damon’s dedication to bettering their lives…

And knowledge of Chinese wisdom.

Trump plans to eliminate National Endowment for Arts funding. Their budget is HALF the cost of keeping Melania in Trump tower.

[quote]Confirming what many have feared for months, the White House budget office has included both the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting on a drafted list of programs to be put on the chopping block by the Trump administration. A report in the New York Times notes that the list has yet to be finalized and could still change. It also calculates the total financial impact of defunding such programs as AmeriCorps and the Legal Services Corporation: $2.5 billion, or 0.0625% of a projected $4 trillion budget. “It’s sad in a way because those programs aren’t causing the deficit,” Steve Bell, formerly a staff director of the Senate Budget Committee and now part of the Bipartisan Policy Center, told the Times. “These programs don’t amount to a hill of beans.”

[quote]“The public wants to see agencies like the N.E.A. continue,” said Robert L. Lynch, head of the nonprofit group Americans for the Arts. “There is always a debate, but there has been agreement among Republicans and Democrats that funding for the arts is a good thing, and it has been kept in place.” The move is no doubt motivated the by Republicans’ well-known fiscal conservatism: Trump’s three consecutive weekend visits to Mar-a-Lago are a steal at just $10 million in taxpayer dollars, for instance, and the First Lady’s decision to live in Trump Tower rather than the White House is only estimated to cost twice the NEA’s budget per year.

Finding the descendants of your ancestors slaves

A few years ago I discovered that my great x 4 grandfather owned slaves. When he died in 1868 he left each one 10 acres of land. His second wife took them to court and had the will vacated. They had been freed before he died.

While discussing this with my friend (he's black, from my hometown and shares my last name) I decided to try to find the children of these slaves. His grandmother was adopted, so he's not related by blood, but it piqued my interest.

The robot that takes your job should pay taxes, says Bill Gates

Robots are taking human jobs. But Bill Gates believes that governments should tax companies’ use of them, as a way to at least temporarily slow the spread of automation and to fund other types of employment.

It’s a striking position from the world’s richest man and a self-described techno-optimist who co-founded Microsoft, one of the leading players in artificial-intelligence technology.

In a recent interview with Quartz, Gates said that a robot tax could finance jobs taking care of elderly people or working with kids in schools, for which needs are unmet and to which humans are particularly well suited. He argues that governments must oversee such programs rather than relying on businesses, in order to redirect the jobs to help people with lower incomes. The idea is not totally theoretical: EU lawmakers considered a proposal to tax robot owners to pay for training for workers who lose their jobs, though on Feb. 16 the legislators ultimately rejected it.

“You ought to be willing to raise the tax level and even slow down the speed” of automation, Gates argues. That’s because the technology and business cases for replacing humans in a wide range of jobs are arriving simultaneously, and it’s important to be able to manage that displacement. “You cross the threshold of job replacement of certain activities all sort of at once,” Gates says, citing warehouse work and driving as some of the job categories that in the next 20 years will have robots doing them.

Bill Maher blasts Jeremy Scahill for dropping out of ‘Real Time’ over Milo Yiannopoulos

Bill Maher is making no apologies for booking Milo Yiannopoulos on HBO’s “Real Time” this Friday, saying Jeremy Scahill’s refusal to appear on the show out of protest of the conservative firebrand is one of the reasons why Democrats lost the election to President Trump.

Mr. Scahill, founding editor of The Intercept, posted a lengthy statement on Twitter Wednesday evening announcing that he was dropping out of his scheduled appearance on Friday’s show because he disagrees with giving Mr. Yiannopoulos a platform to “spew his hateful diatribes.”

“There is no value in ‘debating’ him,” Mr. Scahill wrote. “Appearing on Real Time will provide Yiannopoulos with a large, important platform to openly advocate his racist, anti-immigrant campaign. … Yiannopoulos’s appearance could also be used to incite violence against immigrants, transgender people, and others at a time when the Trump Administration is already seeking to formalize a war against some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”

“Real Time, of course, has the right to book whomever it wants on its show, including Yiannopoulos,” he wrote. “But I cannot participate in an event that will give a platform to such a person. For these reasons, I have informed the producers of Real Time that I will not appear on the show.”

“Liberals will continue to lose elections as long as they follow the example of people like Mr. Scahill whose views veer into fantasy and away from bedrock liberal principles like equality of women, respect for minorities, separation of religion and state, and free speech,” Mr. Maher said in a statement, Entertainment Weekly reported. “If Mr. Yiannopoulos is indeed the monster Scahill claims — and he might be — nothing could serve the liberal cause better than having him exposed on Friday night.”

Mr. Scahill was supposed to join a roundtable discussion with former Republican Rep. Jack Kingston and comedian Larry Wilmore on the show. MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance will serve as his replacement, EW reported.

Mr. Yiannopoulos appeared to take Mr. Scahill’s snub in stride. In an email Wednesday to The Associated Press, he wrote, “public shaming and grandstanding don’t work any more. … Thanks for proving my point for me, Jeremy Scahill! You can look forward to pulling out of a lot more shows in the next few decades.”

------------

Good zinger from Milo there. Scahill loses this one.

Forgotten, but not gone

In these depressing days we do what we can to stay entertained. Let's play a game -- let's list celebrities who are alive but everyone thinks are dead.

The rules -- the people must be alive (of course) and sufficiently well-known that their names will be known to many (if not most) people. Millennials don't count in "people" here -- nothing personal. It's just that they're not likely to be familiar with very elderly celebrities. The forgotten-but-not-gone need not be performers.

One more rule -- gay familiarity need not rule a person out. For instance, my choice, Carol Channing, is of course well-known by us to be alive and kicking, but my straight family are always shocked to hear she's not in the ground!

What do you say to someone like that? Pleased to meet you? Where have you been the last 40 years? What say you DL? Looking for feedback or tips on what to say, but snarky bitchy comments welcome.

FYI, I know she had adult kids, no, she is not leaving me a million dollars, yes, she is very old 80 something, probably circling the drain. No I am not an EST.

Tony Curtis' Stories

From American Prince: A Memoir :

Janet' unhappiness wasn’t due solely to the movie. Janet’s friend Barbara Rush was in the movie with us, and one day Barbara came up to me and asked, “Are you and Janet doing all right?” I had a feeling Janet had told Barbara we weren’t, and that Barbara had come to me to confirm it. I just said, “Janet’s not feeling well.” When the movie ended and Janet and I went home, I tried harder to behave in a way that didn’t anger her, and she made the same effort for me. We settled into a functional but unromantic marriage, the kind of life that was less unusual in Hollywood than you might think.

We threw huge parties at our big, beautiful house on Summit Drive. Janet invited the Debbie Reynolds crowd, and friends such as Danny Kaye. Danny was a major talent. He was born in Brooklyn... To my way of thinking, Danny was a very mean and bitter man, and most everybody seemed to agree with me. When we first met, he would belittle me all the time. He once asked me, “Where did you learn how to fence—the Bronx?” Another time he said to me, “How do you act in those high heels?” I said, “I don’t wear high heels.” Then I took a step closer to him, looked in his eyes, and smiled while I said, “Fuck you, Danny.”

I don’t know why Danny had it in for me. Maybe it was because we both came from New York. Maybe it was because we were both Jewish, and he struggled with that in himself. Or it might have been some complicated sexual feeling.

It was widely rumored that Danny went with both men and women. One of the people Danny was believed to have had a relationship with was Sir Laurence Olivier. There had always been rumors about Larry’s sexuality, but he was nothing like Danny.

Live and let live. I don’t look down on gays; it’s just not my thing. George Cukor, one of the great directors, was part of the Hollywood gay crowd. George would throw a big, formal dinner party at his house. Then, after the party was over, George and his friends would go cruise Sunset Boulevard, looking for young men; they called them “after-dinner mints.” To each his own.

Does Jeremy Renner Have The Ideal Acting Career? (No Stans!)

I know DL has all sorts of Renner Stan threads, but was thinking about this last night:

He does sort of have the career so many actors want.

He's the "good looking enough" guy in movies--handsome enough that he's somewhat aspirational, but not too pretty like Pitt or Cruise or even Efron.

He works regularly yet he's far from a household name meaning he can likely go places without needing an army of bodyguards. Similarly the press does not hound his every move because People isn't paying big bucks for pictures of Renner at Starbucks.

Has probably made enough money that he doesn't have to work anymore.

America's "War Hero" John McCain supports Free and Adversarial Press to ward against "Dictators."

John McCain said President Trump is wrong to tweet the press is an “enemy of the American people” — a label a “dictator” might use.

“If you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and at many times adversarial press,” McCain told Meet The Press’s Chuck Todd in an interview airing

“Without it I’m afraid we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That’s how dictators get started.”

Todd asked McCain, “That’s how dictators get started — with tweets like that?” referring to Trump’s Friday evening tweet calling broadcast television networks and the New York Times “fake news” and an enemy of the public.

“No, they get started by suppressing a free press,” said McCain, bristling. “The first thing dictators do is shut down the press.”

“I’m not saying President Trump is trying to be a dictator. I’m just saying we need to learn the lessons of history."

Obese Female Hoarded Molded To Chair Again

SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio

An overweight, elderly woman relatives describe as a hoarder, was rescued Thursday from her home after not leaving her living room chair for at least a year, according to investigators.

A church volunteer who has delivered meals to Barbara Foster, 75, for a decade, called the fire department and said she wasn’t acting like herself, according to WKRN.

The volunteer had not seen Foster, who weighs 550 pounds, anywhere but in the living room chair since July, according to WTVG.

Investigators said Foster was stuck to the chair for at least a year, where she was surrounded by feces and urine. The odor from inside was so powerful first responders could smell it from the sidewalk, according to WTOL. Rescuers had to wear hazmat suits before they entered the house.

The smell was usual, the church volunteer said.

Foster was screaming when rescuers removed her because her skin had molded itself to the chair and her bones were breaking as they tried to carry her out of the house, according to WCMH.

Foster was a hoarder, Leirin Snyder, her neighbor and goddaughter, told WCMH, but she did not realize how bad things had gotten.

Has anyone had a similar experience or might know what caused this?

A force nearly pulling me off my bed. It's happened to me two times. Both times I was asleep and heard a loud scream that awoke me, where I then experienced myself being pulled.

It first happened when I was 6 and I remember it very vividly. I was sleeping in my mothers bed when it happened. The scream startled me awake and I remember feeling my whole body being pulled, not just a limb. I remember turning to see what was pulling me and as I did it stopped. By that point both my legs were hanging off the bed and the comforter was on the ground. It actually happened very quickly, just a matter of seconds. I've never told anyone about it and over the years I just assumed that it was one of my siblings messing with me or that I imagined it.

Then it happened again last year when I was 24. This time it was in my bedroom (different house then the first incident), which is always locked when I go to sleep and can only be unlocked from the inside. I was sleeping and the exact same scream awoke me. I remember smirking because I thought in my head "Hey, its that scream again. I haven't thought about that in years." And the next thing I know I was pulled halfway down the bed. It was even quicker than last time. This time it felt like just one hard pull, instead of a continuous one, and then it stopped. Needless to say, I freaked the fuck out. It hasn't happened since.

Queen Latifah Opens Up About Her ‘Hard’ Decision To Play A Gay Character

Queen Latifah is one of those rare stars who has been equally successful in both music and film, but rest assured, she’s faced her share of challenges along the way.

In a candid chat with “Black-ish” star Tracie Ellis Ross for InStyle, Queen Latifah said one of her most difficult career decisions was signing on to play Cleo Simms in 1996’s “Set It Off.” In case you’ve forgotten, Cleo is one of the film’s four amateur bank robbers, and she happens to be a lesbian.

“When I got the role of amateur bank robber Cleo Sims in ‘Set It Off,’ I sat down with my younger siblings and told them, ‘Listen, I’m playing a gay character. Your classmates might tease you or say negative things about it,’” she said. “’But I’m doing it because I believe I can bring positive attention to the gay African-American community, and I believe that I can do a great job as an actor.’ They understood, and when those things inevitably happened in school, they were OK with it.”

Queen Latifah’s instincts turned out to be right. “Set It Off,” which also starred Jada Pinkett Smith, Vivica A. Fox and Kimberly Elise, was a hit, and is often referenced alongside “Thelma and Louise” as a cinematic ode to female empowerment.

Still, the jury’s out on whether or not Queen Latifah drew from her own experiences in the role, as the star has repeatedly shrugged off media speculation about her own sexuality. In 2008, she told The New York Times, “I don’t have a problem discussing the topic of somebody being gay, but I do have a problem discussing my personal life... I don’t care if people think I’m gay or not. Assume whatever you want. You do it anyway.”

Her 2012 appearance at Long Beach Pride in California prompted some fans to assume that she’d use the event to make a statement about her private life. Though Queen Latifah reportedly referred to the crowd as “her people,” she later told Entertainment Weekly that she “definitely” wasn’t speaking about any matter pertaining to her sexuality.

“I’ve never dealt with the question of my personal life in public,” she said. “It’s just not gonna happen.”

Set phasers for BACKFIRE: George Takei deletes Twitter poll after something goes hilariously awry

Actor George Takei was taking a Twitter poll earlier, but with hours left, he scrapped it because something wasn’t going right:

lauren @LilMissRightie

lol @GeorgeTakei took a poll of who was a bigger enemy to the US - Trump or the press - then had to delete it bc he didn't like the poll.

“Trump says the media is the true enemy of the American people. So lets take a poll. Who do you think does MORE HARM to the American people?” He provided two possible responses: “The ‘un-fair’ news media” or “President Donald Trump.”

After a few hours and upwards of 70,000 votes, the results were (pretty surprisingly) neck-and-neck.

Displeased with those results (and what liberal wouldn’t be?), Takei promptly deleted the post altogether. His followers took notice, and, jeez, they weren’t happy.

Deplorable Rick 🇺🇸 @realestrickyro

Weird how as soon as your poll flipped in Trump's favor it got deleted from your twitter feed @GeorgeTakei. The truth hurts doesn't it! Ha!

Sarah Abdallah @sahouraxo

So your poll, designed to smear Trump, went to hell and now you're crying about it because... "alt-right trolling"? Typical liberal.

Takei would then try to put more of his foot in his mouth by tweeting the following:

Takei blamed the backfire on “trolls” and others, and then deleted that tweet as well:

Alas, my online poll was hijacked by alt-right, virgin trolls living in their parents' basements. But it did let me ban over 100 of them.

How can Black and White gay men become friends -- or more?

So many threads on Datalounge speak about the racist prejudices and offensive preferences that exist between many Black and White gay men, threads that continue ad nauseam until they're finally closed down.

But what about the Black and White gay men who actually want to become friends with one another, and even more? It seems that there's a lot of hesitation and awkwardness in initiating friendships across the color line, and many end up choosing among only "their own kind" for any kind of relationship.

So, those of you who've succeeded in establishing relationships outside of your race -- how did you go about doing that? How was the approach and the initial conversation?  As you became friends, or more, how did you address or handle any racially charged topics and situations that can easily spark strong disagreements, thus threatening the stability of the relationship?

And finally, what suggestions do you have for those who've tried to make friends, but just can't seem to make it work? What's probably being done wrong in such cases? I believe we Black and White gay men share plenty of common ground, but we just don't know how to make a connection through that.

The Oroville Dam is going to collapse!!! (Oroville, CA near Chico, CA)

If you are in the area, get the fuck out of there; head north!

The Butte County Sheriff’s Department on Sunday issued an evacuation order for parts of Oroville, saying a “hazardous situation” has developed involving an emergency spillway being used to lower water levels at the Oroville Dam.

“Operation of the auxiliary spillway has led to severe erosion that could lead to a failure of the structure,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. “Failure of the auxiliary spillway structure will result in an uncontrolled release of flood waters from Lake Oroville.”

Officials at the Department of Water Resources also sent out an alert saying: “Use of the auxiliary spillway has led to severe erosion that could lead to a failure of the structure.”

Hours earlier at a noon news conference, California Department of Water Resources officials said Oroville Lake is draining without incident and that the amount of water it’s releasing is beginning to taper off, thanks in part to several days of sunny weather and less runoff flowing into the reservoir.

“We think by this time tomorrow … the flow over the auxiliary spillway will have ended,” said Eric See, a spokesman for the Department of Water Resources.

Diminished by years of drought conditions, the reservoir had become a symbol of the state’s worsening water crisis. But an unusually wet winter took the lake from nearly full to overflowing in less than a week.

At the same time, the nearly mile-long concrete spillway that the dam’s managers rely on to release excess water began to crumble, with erosion worsening as millions of gallons of water poured over it.

It continued to rain. Realizing the lake might rise to a level that would trigger the use of an emergency spillway, state workers began clearing the area of trees and brush that could be sent hurtling downstream.

On Saturday morning, water began washing over the dam’s emergency spillway for the first time since it was completed in 1968. Photographs showed a torrent of water rushing downhill to join the Feather River.

On Sunday, officials said that although they expected the uncontrolled spill to end, they plan to continue using the concrete spillway to create more storage in the reservoir in anticipation of rainfall later in the week.

“We’re going to continue to flow water down the spillway and lower the lake,” See said. “You’re going to see the lake dropping over the next several days.”

Officials emphasized that while erosion had carved a massive hole in the main spillway, the dam itself is structurally sound.

“Believe me, in the last several days there have been a lot of eyes on it,” said Bill Croyle, acting director of the water department. “Oroville Dam is not in any way a part of the damage that occurred.”

Officials have estimated it could cost $100 million to $200 million to repair the damage to the spillway and other features.

Amateur Straight Porn

The recent thread on straight men watching gay porn made me think more about the straight porn that I occasionally enjoy as a gay man. Not str8 as in gay4pay but men and women fucking.

I only like the amateur/homemade stuff, which is what I prefer with gay porn, and I find some of the sex really hot. I don't think it's self-loathing and I don't envision myself as a woman. I just like to see hot sex that prominently features a man's body. I am not really attracted to the woman in the porn, but then, I am not repulsed by women's bodies either. It helps if she's good looking and enthusiastic, but my primary focus is on the man.

Case in point: This guy has a huge dick, great ass, and handsome face, and he really knows how to fuck. Plus, the use of the mirror is near perfect. I think it is a really hot scene.

The poll is for gay men, but if you are outside that demographic, I am interested in your thoughts as well.

And if you have suggestions, please share.

Reporters have noticed how Pres Bannon & VP MIller are playing the press

It goes like this....most likely it is Bannon & Miller & Cuntway behind this. Finally the media is totally on to them:. The incident reflects an emerging pattern noted by several top political reporters in how the Trump administration handles its most controversial policy proposals, and undermines the press in the process:

1. Wait for a draft memo of a proposal to be leaked to the press. 2. Refuse to comment when asked about the draft. 3. Wait to dispute a story's accuracy until the story is published. 4. Accuse the press of never having sought comment to begin with.

But her private server!

The Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, who has refused Democratic requests to investigate possible conflicts of interest involving President Donald Trump, is seeking criminal charges against a former State Department employee who helped set up Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday asking him to convene a grand jury or charge Bryan Pagliano, the computer specialist who helped establish Clinton’s server while she was secretary of state.

Pagliano did not comply with two subpoenas ordering him to appear before the oversight panel. The GOP-led committee later voted to hold him in contempt of Congress.

Earlier this month, Chaffetz met with Trump at the White House and agreed not to discuss oversight. He has rebuffed calls for his panel to look into Trump’s businesses and possible conflicts.

Chaffetz said in a statement that allowing Pagliano’s conduct “to go unaddressed would gravely harm Congress’ ability to conduct oversight.”

Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the committee, said pursuing charges against Pagliano would be a waste of time and money.

“Apparently, Chairman Chaffetz and President Trump are the only two people in Washington today who think we should still be investigating Secretary Clinton,” Cumming said in a statement. He added: “The Oversight Committee can’t afford to be distracted by political vendettas against Hillary Clinton while our constituents are begging us to conduct responsible oversight of President Trump.”

Pagliano refused to answer questions in 2015 from a House panel investigating the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya. He later spoke to the FBI under immunity, telling the bureau there were no successful security breaches of the home-brew server, located at Clinton’s home in suburban New York City.

Pagliano said he was aware of many failed login attempts that he described as “brute force attacks.”

Donald Trump used to be a Democrat!

What happened to Trumpy? What happened to his heart, and the ideals he once pursued? And now that he's President, he thinks he can do as he pleases. Happy birthday, Jesus.

And now that the border is re-zoned, the immigrants' dream can become a reality. You'll see, boys. A state of the art, digital, virtual interactive fence. He'll forego deportation and on paper guarantee that they can stay here for free, if we do him one small favor.

What, you ask? Convince the media to cancel their fake news and stop protesting. Why not just get an injunction or call the cops? Yeah he did, and they're on standby but his advisors would rather he handle this quietly.

You can't just quietly wipe out an entire sanctuary city then watch 'It's A Wonderful Life' on TV! He says you want more jobs and lower taxes? You need him to do it! It's what we used to dream about, think twice before you pooh-pooh it. You'll see, boys - the beauty of a Trump presidency that lets us do our work and get paid. With condoms on the tops, whose rentboys keeps open our shop.

Spicer says just stop the protests and you'll have it made. You'll see - or you'll pack! That man could use some Prozac. Or heavy drugs. Or group hugs.

Which reminds me, we have a protest sign to make tonight. Anyone who wants to can come along. Trump Support's a group for people coping with Trump. You don't have to stay too long. First I've got a protest to save.

Trump's lawyer hand-delivered Michael Flynn a secret plan to lift sanctions on Russia

Trump Organisation lawyer Michel Cohen hand-delivered a “peace” plan for Russia and Ukraine to former national security adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was asked to resign, the New York Times reported on Sunday.

The plan, which involved lifting sanctions on Russia, was drafted by Cohen — a close confidante of President Donald Trump who has served as his organisation’s special counsel since 2007 — and Felix Sater, a Russian-American real estate developer who has helped the Trump Organisation scout deals in Russia.

Sater, a businessman formerly linked with the Mafia who has boasted of his “relationship with Trump,” told the Washington Post last May that he “handled all of the negotiations” for the Trump Organisation’s dealings in Russia in the mid-2000’s.

Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii V. Artemenko, who met with Trump’s campaign team during the election, was also involved in drafting the proposal. Artemenko told the Times he had evidence of Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko’s corruption that could lead to his ouster.

Poroshenko has been locked in a war with pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine since he took power in 2014, and is considered more friendly to the West than his ousted predecessor, Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych’s political rise was heavily aided by former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

A house is a place to live, not an investment.

I think I’m older than most people replying to this article. I was an adult in 1982 and saw the runup in housing in Japan. I’ve lived in four countries in my life and have seen two major housing busts and believe me, 2008 and after was not a bust, just a correction.

And for housing, it wasn’t even a big correction. I bought a house in south San Jose in 2009 (for cash) and sold it in 2015 for roughly double what I paid. I got lucky but I also rented in SJ from 2004 to 2009 because I refused to pay the asking price on any of the crap that was available for sale. I now live on the east coast in a house bought for cash.

A house is a place to live, not an investment. A car is not an investment but an expense. An investment pays you, often. Anything you have to pay to keep is an expense. Since a house doesn’t pay you, it’s an expense and a big one at that. Professional property managers know that upkeep is 1-3% of the value of the property per year and it comes in lumps when you can least afford it.

Air conditioners and roofs break in a lump, not 1% a year. So the cash demands may be infrequent but large and average out to the 1-3% range. Where you sit in the range depends on the type of construction, the local climate and regulations, age and even luck. Buying a house as an “investment” is a sure fire way of identifying mental deficits in the buyer. Single family housing rental is dominated by amateurs who can’t count or calculate ROI.

That explains why there are no stock exchange listed firms with a 50 year history of making money out of single family rentals. Apartment complexes and shopping malls cost enough to keep the amateurs out of the market so the pricing is more realistic.

When a family buys a house the only number that matters is the monthly payment. Long term falling interest rates make for a booming property market since ‘housing only goes up’ in most people's very short memory and very limited experience. Falling interest rates or exotic mortgages make it possible to sustain higher capital costs for houses as time passes since the payments, as a fraction of average income, remains fixed.

Lisa Marie’s Dark ‘Threat’ Uncovered! Presley’s Ex Claims She Made Shady Secret Phone Call

Lisa Marie Presley threatened to make her ex Michael Lockwood‘s life a nightmare if he didn’t withdraw his claim for alimony cash, newly filed court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com allege.

Lockwood, 55, states in court documents obtained by Radar that the latest round in their messy divorce began on December 29, when he filed an order asking Presley, 49, to pay him $40,000 per month in spousal support and to pay his attorneys’ fees in the amount of $100,000. He also alleged in that filing that the couple’s post-nuptial agreement was “not valid,” or at least unenforceable.

Not long after, on January 20, the court documents claim that Lockwood’s attorney “received a phone call from [Lisa Marie’s] attorney, who said that [Michael] should withdraw his request … unless he wanted the allegations against him in the dependency court to be disclosed…”

That “threat was contemporaneously recorded,” the complaint claims.

Lockwood didn’t back down, and on February 7, the court documents allege, Presley “followed through on her threat by disclosing unproven allegations” about him – namely, that she had discovered hundreds of “inappropriate photos” and videos of children on his computer.

Lockwood’s filing claims that the move was intended to “destroy” his reputation, and was in direct violation of a September 2016 court order in their child custody case “prohibiting the disclosure of information about that case.”

I Still Don't Get Gay Guys

Even though I am one.

On Grindr just now and see photo of a hot guy with a douche-y profile, basically saying "if you contact me, send pictures, and make sure they're hot and get my attention."

So immediately I'm thinking "what a high maintenance douche."

Then I check the Instagram linked on his profile and he's an Instagram star wannabe-- lots of well-lit photos with no shirt on (e.g. someone else took them) and it turns out he is a med student and engaged to a hot looking guy who is also an Instagram ho

And I'm looking at it thinking:

(a) if I was 24 (I'm 28, btw) and engaged to a hot guy I was really into, I would not be putting my ass out on Grindr

(b) Who does he think he's going to meet? Some other Insta-ho? Who would degrade themselves to send a bunch of photos with the basic message "here are my photos, do I pass muster for you sir?" Fuck that. He's marginally better looking than a half dozen other guys on there right now, who are not asking guys to pass some kind of test.

Seriously, what's going through his mind? Is he one of those guys who was not that good looking until recently and gets off on rejecting people now that he's hot? Why isn't the hot fiance enough? And who is he ultimately hoping will respond to his photo? Zac Efron? Some other Insta-ho?

Baffling to me because if I had a guy I loved enough to get engaged to, I would be banging him, not wasting time finding tricks on Grindr.

Melania Trump Is ‘Miserable’ as First Lady, ‘Unhappy With How Her Life Ended Up’

[quote]“Melania is unhappy with how her life ended up,” a source close to the First Lady tells Us. “She is miserable.” According to the people closest to FLOTUS, her life has been completely turned upside down, and not in a good way, since having the #PowerOfTheFirstLady bestowed upon her. And instead of embracing her new role, it’s turning her into a depressed recluse. “This life wasn’t her dream. It was Donald’s,” stylist Phillip Bloch, a friend of the Trump’s, tells Us.“Truthfully, it’s a lot to cope with.” Melania is allegedly “horrified” by all the people who have been making fun of her, another source says. Not only that, but all the high profile fashion designers who are now refusing to dress her has been a bitter pill to swallow.“That entire world she used to enjoy,” a source says, “is closed to her.”

[quote]According to Us, Melania spends most days hidden away in her lavish $100 million New York apartment, likely with the shades tightly drawn, trying to ignore the constant stream of picketers outside the building’s entrance. Though she was always been a very private person, Bloch says, “she is staying hidden more.”For example, before the inauguration, Melania would accompany her 10-year-old son, Barron, to and from school every day in a chauffeured luxury SUV. These days, she remains at home and instead “has the Secret Service take Barron to school and retrieve him.” In fact, Melania has only left her apartment a small handful of times in the past month, including to attend the inauguration on January 21, running errands on January 30, and joining Donald at Mar-a-Lago the weekend of February 3, where she was photographed strolling around the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens with the Prime Minister of Japan’s wife. “Don’t let her smile in those photos fool you,” claims the source. “She hates this.”

Trump Confuses TV Documentary With Intel Briefing - Makes up Terror Attack

‘Last Night in Sweden’? Trump’s Remark Baffles a Nation

LONDON — Swedes reacted with confusion, anger and ridicule on Sunday to a vague remark by President Trump that suggested that something terrible had occurred in their country.

During a campaign-style rally on Saturday in Florida, Mr. Trump issued a sharp if discursive attack on refugee policies in Europe, ticking off a list of places that have been hit by terrorists.

“You look at what’s happening,” he told his supporters. “We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?”

Not the Swedes.

Nothing particularly nefarious happened in Sweden on Friday — or Saturday, for that matter — and Swedes were left baffled.

Continue reading the main story RELATED COVERAGE

Trump Returns to Campaign Trail After a Month in Office FEB. 18, 2017

Fact Check: What Trump Got Wrong at His Rally FEB. 18, 2017 “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound,” Carl Bildt, a former prime minister and foreign minister, wrote on Twitter.

Mr. Trump did not state, per se, that a terrorist attack had taken place in Sweden.

But the context of his remarks — he mentioned Sweden right after he chastised Germany, a destination for refugees and asylum seekers fleeing war and deprivation — suggested that he thought it might have.

“Sweden,” he said. “They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we’re going to keep our country safe.”

Contrary to Mr. Trump’s allegations, nearly all of the men involved in terrorist assaults in Paris on Nov. 13, 2015, in Brussels on March 22 last year, and in Nice, France, on July 14, were citizens of France or Belgium.

As the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet noted, Twitter users were quick to ridicule Mr. Trump’s remark, with joking references to the Swedish Chef, the “Muppets” character; Swedish meatballs; and Ikea, the furniture giant.

Others speculated that Mr. Trump might have been influenced by a Fox News interview of Ami Horowitz, a filmmaker who asserts that migrants in Sweden have been associated with a crime wave, by the correspondent Tucker Carlson. “They often times try to cover up some of these crimes,” Mr. Horowitz said, arguing that those who try to tell the truth about the situation are shouted down as racists and xenophobes.

Transgender teenage boy wins girls wrestling championship despite parents' attempts to ban him from competing

A transgender teenager won a girls wrestling contest on Saturday despite attempts from other competitors' parents to stop him from taking part.

Mack Beggs, a 17-year-old from Euless, Texas, has been taking steroids as part of his transition from female to male since late 2015.

He says he wants to compete against boys but isn't allowed to because of University Interscholastic League rules which say he must compete as the gender listed by his birth certificate.

The league does not allow students to compete against the opposite sex so Mack is forced to stay in the girls' category.

A girl he was due to wrestle at the weekend forfeited the match amid claims from parents that was unsafe for her to wrestle the transgender teenager who they say he is getting an 'unfair advantage' by taking steroids.

One parent has launched a lawsuit against the League, claiming it is putting girls at risk of 'imminent threat of bodily harm' by allowing Mack to remain in the 110-pound weight class.

His grandmother Nancy said the forfeiture was about nothing more than 'hatred' and that the youngsters were willing to take each other on before the parents meddled.

'Today was about bias, hatred and ignorance. These kids have wrestled each other before, they know each other and they were not happy with this,' she said.

'The thing is, we want to wrestle each other. I feel so sick and disgusted by the discrimination not by the kids, the parents and coaches.

Nunes told me Monday night that this will not end well. “First it’s Flynn, next it will be Kellyanne Conway, then it will be Steve Bannon, then it will be Reince Priebus,” he said.

What happened when factory jobs moved from Warren, Ohio, to Juarez, Mexico

Chris Wade reached into the darkness to silence his blaring alarm clock. It was 4:30 on a frigid winter morning in Warren, Ohio, and outside a fresh layer of snow blanketed the yard.

Thank God, Wade thought to himself. He would be able to get out his plow and make some quick cash.

Money never used to be a problem for Wade, 47, who owned a house with a pool back when he worked at Delphi Automotive, a parts manufacturer that for years was one of the biggest employers in this wooded stretch of northeastern Ohio. But 10 years after taking a buyout as part of Delphi’s ongoing shift of production out of the United States and into Mexico and China, the house and the pool were gone.

Berta Alicia Lopez, 54, is the new face of Delphi. On a recent chilly morning, she woke before sunrise on the outskirts of Juarez, Mexico, and caught an unheated bus that dropped her an hour away at the Delphi plant.

Lopez earns $1 an hour assembling cables and electronics that will eventually be installed into vehicles — the same work that Wade once did for $30 an hour. A farmer’s daughter who grew up in an impoverished stretch of rural Mexico, Lopez is proud to own a used Toyota sedan and a concrete block house.

She frequently thanks God for the work, even if it is in a town troubled by drug violence, even if she doesn’t see many possibilities for earning more or advancing.

The two workers live 1,800 miles and a border apart and have never met. But their stories embody the massive economic shift that has accompanied the rise of free trade.

WINGMEN---Maybe the greatest gay book of all time (by request from the guys in the Cheesy MM thread to start a new thread):

Written in 1979 by a former USN officer, it tells the story of fighter pilots Fred Trusteau and Jack Hardigan, battling the Japanese across the Pacific and coming to terms with their feelings for each other, and the equally hazardous undertaking of making a life together in postwar America.

Yeah, that's a spoiler. But I want to put it right up front that this is not a downer of a novel with the obligatory unhappy ending like most of the gay-themed novels of my youth. It's not a 100% happy ending (many reviewers have described it as "bittersweet") due to the realities of the time period. But the author doesn't betray his characters by having them breakup or kill themselves or sink into a seedy gay underworld because (as SO many novels of the time implied) that's just what the gays do, they can't be happy. He makes it clear that the problems they face are imposed by a homophobic society, not from their fundamentally flawed relationship.

Some readers may object to the depiction of sex (very low key, implied rather than explicit), the fact that they never say "I love you" or talk much about the relationship at all (in short, typical men of that time and pretty much any time). They might object to the fact that there's far more fighting than fucking and the lack of political consciousness. But this is a WAR novel, it's not a backdrop, it's what consumed nearly every America male for 5 years and defined that generation, as as a poltical novel, it's far more effective for NOT making its points with bullhorn.

What it us is:

A wartime love story every bit the equal of classics like For Whom the Bell Tolls and From Here to Eternity.

A totally realistic depiction of men at war, military life, and what it's like to be a military man in love with another in circumstances where acknowledging that live could get you disgraced, discharged and even imprisoned (and thus is my now firsthand experience btw).

One of the very few books that depicts love between men as enobling, righteous and even heroic, against a backdrop of fantastic scenes of aerial combat.

An all around portrait of life aboard a WW2 aircraft carrier, complete with all the great characters and humor you encounter in that type of situations. Every one of these characters rings true. Every one.

Maybe it's me, but I was relieved the author doesn't take them on a tour of the gay scene and give them a wise drag queen to dispense wisdom or a fag hag friend. It might have made the story "gayer" from a publisher's POV but wouldn't have rung true for these men.

M/M fiction gets bashed regularly around here, and books like this are one of the reasons: those of us who've read it know what that kind of story can be in the hands of a master storyteller whose painstaking research and insider knowledge shows on every page. Once you've read Wingmen, the cheap substitutes just show for what they are.

I read it for the first time 30 years ago, and it's stayed with me ever since.

Disney’s Maker Studios Cuts Ties With PewDiePie Over Anti-Semitic Videos

Disney’s Maker Studios has severed ties with YouTube star PewDiePie, TheWrap has learned.

PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, has been dropped by the company after videos of his featuring anti-semitic jokes were uncovered by the Wall Street Journal.

According to the report, Kjellberg posted a video on Jan. 11 featuring footage of two men laughing as they hold up a banner reading “Death to all Jews.” In addition, the paper found nine other instances of anti-semitic jokes on his channel.

Kjellberg has since defended the video as a joke that went too far after advertising on the video was pulled by YouTube’s parent company, Google.

“Although Felix has created a following by being provocative and irreverent, he clearly went too far in this case and the resulting videos are inappropriate,” Maker said in a statement provided to TheWrap.

Three of Kjellberg’s videos have since been removed, including the one posted on Jan. 11 and another posted on Jan. 22 that showed a man dressed up as Jesus Christ saying, “Hitler did absolutely nothing wrong.”

Kjellberg’s channel currently has more than 53 million subscribers. Last December, he topped Forbes’ list of the highest-paid YouTubers of 2016, having made more than $15 million.

This is not the first time the 27-year-old has come under fire for controversial jokes. He previously threatened to shut down his channel after reaching 50 million subscribers, in what turned out to be a publicity stunt.

Who should have played Bette Davis instead of Sarandon?

Her reviews are a little tepid.

One of them:

Bette Davis is rendered in a more minor key. Sarandon makes subtle references to Davis’s Massachusetts Brahmin accent and raspy delivery, but mostly avoids direct imitation. There are times when Sarandon raises an eyebrow and cocks her head and suddenly there’s Bette, owlish and assessing. But there’s mostly a lot of Sarandon. Which isn’t a bad thing—she gives a compelling performance. It’s just that seeing old clips of the real Bette Davis—and, for that matter, Joan Crawford—reminds you just how outsized and one-of-a-kind the real things were. Watching Davis on, say, The Dick Cavett Show, you long to see Davis’s archness and directness reflected in Feud. Sarandon nails it on occasion, but she’s not given enough pepperiness to play with. Murphy and his writers seem more invested in making room for Lange’s theatrics,

The Sun: TOM DALEY in cybersex romp!

It's the Sun so take it with a huge grain of salt, but:

DIVE BEEN A NAUGHTY BOY Tom Daley confesses to fiance Dustin Lance to online sex with another man and vows to stop after video emerges of Olympic hero stripping for cyber romp

Olympic diving medallist Tom Daley admits cyber sex but said it happened when he and fiance Dustin Lance were on a break

OLYMPIC diver Tom Daley told how he ­confessed to his fiancé that he had online sex with another man.

Tom said: “It will never happen again” — after film emerged of him stripping for a cyber romp.

The Olympic diving ace revealed it took place in a ­seven-month split from hubby-to-be Dustin Lance Black.

But he pledged: “This will absolutely never happen again now that we’re getting married.

“The date is set, and we’re raring and ready to go for that wedding now.”

Tom said he and film-maker Dustin, 42, had secretly been “on a break” because of the demands of their long-distance ­relationship when he chatted with other men online and indulged in cyber sex with one.

Tom said he had confessed all to Dustin about his online sex session.

And he insisted to The Sun his relationship with Dustin — who he calls Lance — was now stronger than ever.

Olympic bronze medallist Tom said: “It was the distance. It’s not like I actually met up with anyone.

“I’m 22 years old, and if you talk to someone through social media it is what it is. It was nothing more than that. We never physically met.

“But in the modern world this is what can happen — things are more accessible online, and distributed, and they spread like wildfire.

“People are just exploring and finding out what can be done and how easy it is to not even think about what you’re doing online.

“Me and Lance after working through that distance through the amount of time we’ve been together, sometimes it takes something like a little bit of time apart to realise how fond you are of each other.

“That’s why we’ve been enjoying planning our wedding so much in the last few weeks.

“We don’t have secrets in our relationship. We’re honest and open about everything. When we were back together I told him everything.

“Lance and I had a period of time apart, and then coming back together and realising we’re meant for each other.

“We’re soulmates — and the only way that we were going to get back to that point was to be honest, open and share everything that happened in our time away from each other.

“It’s totally crucial to us that we are completely and totally open with each other.

“I don’t think I’ve done anything more or less than any other 22-year-old has done. Lance and I have such a strong connection that again our honesty and openness is so important.”

Fans had no idea the pair had temporarily split last year and Tom’s social media for 2016 is full of happy pictures of the pair.

But behind the scenes Tom’s relationship was in turmoil and he turned to other men for comfort.

The United States is much better off without Michael Flynn serving as national security adviser. But no one should be cheering the way he was brought down.

The whole episode is evidence of the precipitous and ongoing collapse of America's democratic institutions — not a sign of their resiliency.

Gap In-Store Playlists 1992-2006 - HELP!

Surely I'm not the only gay man who collected the in-store playlists for Gap stores while he worked there? I worked for Gap from 1992 to 2006, and each month, a new CD (or cassette pre-1998) would arrive to play in the stores for the designated month. Along with it came a playlist with all of the songs and artists listed in order (each CD or tape was a full four hours),

I loved the music and I would keep the paper playlists for each month that I worked there, using them to build my music collection. So many different styles throughout the years, with a great selection of Nineties music, both well-known and obscure.

In February 2006, I lost the box that I kept the playlists in. I later found a cache of duplicates that I had stored away, and with that, I began the work of reconstructing each month for the years I worked for Gap. I had already been buying music since 1992 and putting the songs into folders but I had not gotten around to making full-on playlists for every month.

I'm looking for scans or photos of any Gap in-store playlists from 1992 to March 2006. I buy my songs from iTunes, and, if they are not available there, I buy used CDs; NO illegal downloading at all. Nor is there advertising on my site, so this is not "advertising" or trying to get clicks. I'm just trying to make my playlist collection complete.

The site shows how to contact me if ANYONE is able to help me out.

1992 was really great with all kinds of House music, endless Annie Lennox, and the beginning of the resurgence of Disco!

Liberal voters warn Democratic officials: resist Trump or be replaced

On the evening Donald Trump announced his supreme court nominee, thousands of protesters gathered outside of Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer’s Brooklyn apartment. They chanted “Just vote no” and “Obstruct” while carrying signs – “Get a spine, Chuck” – and a prop skeleton to illustrate their point.

Trump loyalists stand by their man – but the resistance is taking root Read more The protesters are part of a sudden swell of liberal activism that has drawn millions to city streets and airport concourses across the US, in a startling show of resistance to Trump’s presidency. Emboldened by this groundswell, some progressives have started using the word “primary” as a verb – and as a threat.

For Democrats in Washington, many of whom are still surprised by the scale and furiousness of backlash, the challenge is how to convert this energy into electoral success.

Schumer has significantly slowed the pace of Trump’s cabinet confirmations and excoriated many of the president’s nominees. But the activists outside Schumer’s home on that January night were unimpressed by his votes in favor of Trump’s nominees to represent the US in the UN and to lead the Pentagon, CIA and Department of Ho

The final rule requires that women be treated equally with men in the health care they receive and also prohibits the denial of health care or health coverage based on an individual’s sex, including discrimination based on pregnancy, gender identity, and sex stereotyping. The final rule also requires covered health programs and activities to treat individuals consistent with their gender identity."

So any plan on the exchange as well as any hospital or facility that takes Medicare or Medicaid is bound by this. Sex stereotyping? Give me a fucking break. Funny how hard they work to make it all about women...when we know it's not really about women at all. Well, except for all the self-loathing dykes who hate themselves so much they have to chop their tits off.

Fucking Obama. Took years to even be able to say that gays and lesbians deserved the right to marry, but can't do enough for the Trannies. I guess that's what happens when you owe your career and soul to the Pritzkers.

and predictably, conservatives are saying all the white house leaks are more problematic than what was revealed about Fynn

It's pathetic but hilarious. The conservative narrative during this whole incident is that all these white house leaks are "despicable" and "someone from the inside is trying to take down the Trump administration". They're not focusing hardly at all on Flynn's highly questionable activity or Trump's alleged collusion with Russia. What the fuck is wrong with these people? If not for these leaks (about Flynn and various other issues), Trump and his fellow pieces of shit would be getting away with everything they're doing/trying to do.

Conservatives are trying to make the rest of us feel guilty for doing our best to keep the Trump administration honest. Simply disgusting. How can they call anyone unpatriotic ever again?

Why Israel isn’t shocked by anti-Semites in White House

Israel does not appear shocked by the appointment of racist anti-Semites to senior positions in US President-elect Donald Trump’s administration. There is no wonder there. First of all, it is not in our power to change it. Our complete dependence on the United States forces us to hold our tongue and restrain ourselves.

Second, a world view which supports white supremacy matches our government’s interests. If Trump’s people are more disgusted by Arabs than they are by Jews, we have struck quite a good deal. Trump and his friends see Israel as a forefront against the barbarians, and they are not exactly very observant.

To do the Netanyahu government justice, let me qualify my statement by saying that all forms of Zionism hold the perception that a certain extent of anti-Semitism benefits the Zionist enterprise. To put it more sharply, anti-Semitism is the generator and ally of Zionism. Masses of Jews leave their place of residence only when their economic situation and physical safety are undermined. Masses of Jews are shoved to this country rather than being attracted to it. The yearning for the land of Zion and Jerusalem is not strong enough to drive millions of Jews to the country they love and make them hold on to its clods.

As the Jews in Israel long for immigrants with a certain affiliation to their people, and as Zionism—like any other ideology—needs constant justification, we have a secret hope in our hearts that a moderate anti-Semitic wave, along with a deterioration in the economic situation in their countries of residence, will make Diaspora Jews realize that they belong with us.

Is proof even necessary? No one will protest the assertion that the rise in anti-Semitism in France gave us some satisfaction, in the sense of “we warned you, didn’t we?” Late Prime Minister Ariel Sharon did not hesitate to make such a declaration, angering the French government and many Jews who see themselves as unconditional French citizens. Thousands of Jews from France who see Israel as a lifeboat, as an insurance policy, purchased apartments here and raised real estate prices in the coastal cities. That’s good. It proves Zionism was right.

Furthermore, no one can deny that the economic crisis in the Soviet empire, coupled with the nesting anti-Semitism there, were the cause of the immigration to Israel of about 1 million Jews and their non-Jewish relatives, most of whom have no affiliation to Jewish culture. Neither can anyone contradict the embarrassing fact that Israel worked to lock the gates to the US, the opening of which may have directed many of these Jews and their relatives there, and perhaps even most of them.

It was not the Jewish immigrants’ welfare that we saw before our eyes, but the state’s reinforcement. While the act of blocking and directing the Jews to Israel is ethically dubious, it was justified by the Zionist ideology which asserts that a normalization of the Jewish situation—in other words, concentrating the Jewish people in its own territory—is the only thing that will save us from another Holocaust and, according to some people, will even speed up the Messiah’s arrival.

The Jews’ comfortable situation in America raises doubts as to whether it was worthwhile to gamble on the establishment of a Jewish state. The normalization did not provide us, the Israelis, with a normal existence and did not lessen the anti-Semitism which is now drawing some of its arguments from the way we are managing the conflict with the Palestinians. There are Israelis whose parents or grandparents immigrated to Israel out a belief that this is where the agonizing historical journey will end, and now their offspring are learning that the promise has not been fulfilled.

In order to remove these malignant doubts, it would be good to have some anti-Semitism in America. Not serious anti-Semitism, not pogroms, not persecutions that will empty America from its Jews, as we need them there, but just a taste of this pungent stuff, so that we can restore our faith in Zionism.

High School Boy Wins State Honors In Girls All-State Track And Field

I bet Wangyot still has his little wang:

High school girls in Alaska are crying foul after a male sprinter took home all-state honors in girls’ track and field. According to local reports, it was the first time in Alaskan history that a male athlete competed in the girls’ state championships.

Haines senior Nattaphon Wangyot–who self-identifies as a girl–advanced to the state finals in the 100-meter and 200-meter events. He won fifth place in the 100-meter dash and third place in the 200-meter. In both events, he competed against girls as young as ninth grade.

One of the girls Wangyot beat out for a slot at the state meet, Hutchison runner Emma Daniels, took issue with allowing a male athlete to compete in girls events.

"I’m glad that this person is comfortable with who they are and they’re able to be happy in who they are, but I don’t think it’s competitively completely 100-percent fair,” she told a local CBS station.

One of the girls Wangyot beat out for a slot at the state meet, Hutchison runner Emma Daniels, took issue with allowing a male athlete to compete in girls events.

“I’m glad that this person is comfortable with who they are and they’re able to be happy in who they are, but I don’t think it’s competitively completely 100-percent fair,” she told a local CBS station.

Another runner, Peyton Young (who competed in a different event) took a similar position. “I don’t know what’s politically correct to say, but in my opinion your gender is what you’re born with,” she told the Alaska Dispatch News.

“It’s the DNA. Genetically a guy has more muscle mass than a girl, and if he’s racing against a girl, he may have an advantage.”

Alaska allows each school to decide whether to let boys compete in individual girls’ events. According to the Alaska Dispatch News, Wangyot’s district doesn’t even require boys to undergo hormone therapy before competing in girls’ events.

“For the purposes of gender identification for interscholastic activities, the district will consider the [bold]gender identity based on the student’s consistent declaration of gender identity, their actions, attitude, dress and mannerisms,” the policy states.[/bold]

Wangyot — who immigrated from Thailand in 2014, according to the Alaska Dispatch News — also played on the girls’ volleyball and basketball teams.

Alaska Family Action president Jim Minnery, organized a protest against forcing teenage girls to compete against male athletes.

“We are here today as a voice from the community to ensure that female athletes are not denied the playing opportunities and scholarships otherwise available to them and to make the playing field even again,” he said.

Minnery argued that “Allowing students to play on teams of the opposite sex disproportionately impacts female students, who will lose spots on a track, soccer and volleyball teams to male students who identify as female.”

Fitness Gays, will Crossfit kill me?

Former fattie here. Well, I'm still gay fat. I lost more than 40 lbs in the past year. Mostly through healthy eating and cardio. I'd still like to get down another 20 or so lbs and build more strength.

Now, it's time to take it to the next level. Rather than do weights/cardio/weights/cardio, I was thinking I might sign up for a crossfit class. The thing is, I'm so new to anything that isn't a treadmill or elliptical. I've always been broad shouldered and kind of naturally muscular, so trainers always think I'm experienced, but I'm such a novice with weights and anything beyond basic cardio. Basically, I look stronger than I am.

I'd love to hear the experiences of any of you who enrolled in a crossfit class/gym. Especially those of you who were total novices. I know it's going to be insanely tough at first. I'm not worried about that, I'm just feeling anxious about potentially being among longtime crossfitters who are just much stronger, fitter and experienced than I am.

Any recommendations in what to look for in a crossfit gym? Am I skipping a logical step? Is there something I should try BEFORE I attempt starting crossfit?

A few of my friends commented on how hot he was and how "he could easily get any guy he wanted".

I turned it off & came back to 50 more messages (because it doesn't sign you off right away). I deleted his pic, and apparently it was still cached for some people or something because I just discovered 40 more messages now. Guys were begging, repeatedly, for anything from this dude... sending every kind of pic - face pics from the "discreet" guys who never send them, dick, ass, etc...and begging over and over to fuck around - in a car, hotel, etc. I get that he's hot... but wtf??

Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, joined Trump at the White House on Tuesday.

The Republican governor said while guest hosting a New York sports talk radio show Thursday that Trump pointed out the menu and told people to get whatever they want. Then he said he and Christie were going to have the meatloaf.

‘‘This is what it’s like to be with Trump,’’ Christie said. ‘‘He says, ‘There’s the menu, you guys order whatever you want.’ And then he says, ‘Chris, you and I are going to have the meatloaf.’’’

George Takei reflects on the 75th anniversary of Executive order # 9066: The internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII

Beloved eldergay George Takei writes an op-ed piece for CNN comparing the internment of loyal U.S citizens of Japanese ancestry during WWII to what is happening today.

From the article: "...The internment happened because of three things: fear, prejudice and a failure of political leadership. When the administration targets groups today, whether for exclusion from travel here on the basis of religion and national origin, or for deportation based on their undocumented status, I know from personal experience that these are not done, as they claim, truly in the name of national security.

No, instead they are intended to strike fear into communities, to show the muscle and "toughness" of a new president, and to divide the citizenry against itself. These are the acts of a despot, not an elected leader..."

White House backstabbing: The Court of the Borgias

Over the past few weeks, I've heard this comparison at least twice. The great writer and historian Jon Meacham, frequent Morning Joe panelist, made the comment one morning recently to the effect that it's every person for themselves in the White House, with "Court of the Borgias" intrigue as people jockey for influence. There was also this, from conservative tool Jonah Goldberg, on NPR's Morning Edition:

[quote]I think there are a lot of different things going on. I think, first of all, the White House is fairly chaotic. It's the only part of the government that's really staffed up right now. And Donald Trump likes to pit people against each other. He tends to listen to the last person he talked to. And right now, if you talk to people, it sounds like the West Wing is sort of like the court of the Borgia popes, and everyone's trying to poison each other, and everyone is trying to backstab each other. And so there's a lot of vengeful leaking against rivals.

I like to think I have a fair knowledge of history, but respect the fact that many here will know far more than I do. Is the Borgia Court analogy as cutting as it seems? Just how bad were the politics of Renaissance Italy and Europe in that era? Or is it all much ado about nothing, as someone once wrote?

CoverGirl's first (gay) male model under fire for ignorant/racist tweets

When CoverGirl announced its first male spokesmodel in James Charles, he was hailed as an inspiring figurehead for the diversity-in-beauty movement. Now, thanks to a racist “joke,” beauty fans are threatening to boycott the brand.

Headed on a school trip to South Africa, Charles tweeted the now deleted remarks, “‘I can’t believe we’re going to Africa today omg what if we get Ebola?’ ‘James we’re fine we could’ve gotten it at chipotle last year…’”

Having sent out the tweet on Thursday morning, four hours later Charles had deleted it after it was met with backlash.

The 17-year-old replaced the controversial tweet with a series of apologies, including a lengthy iPhone Notes app-style apology. “Okay, I’m NOT going to post a bullshit apology,” he wrote. “I am aware that the tweet was extremely offensive and degrading… As a white cis male, I recognize my privilege and would never want to take that for granted.” He continued, “I look forward to exploring the country and learning much more about the people and culture, because clearly I know very little and have a lot to learn.”

One problem: The apology refers to Africa as a country. (James then apologized for that with the explanation that his trip is to South Africa only.)

CoverGirl issued its own response to the remarks on Twitter, writing “James Charles’ tweet does not represent COVERGIRL’s perspective. We agree that his statements were inappropriate but appreciate that he has issued an apology. We are an inclusive brand and respect all people and cultures.”

But is the hasty apology from both Charles and the brand enough? The campaign is getting dragged on Twitter, with commenters calling for Charles to be cut from his contract.

There was an Ebola outbreak throughout many parts of West Africa in 2014, with the highest concentration of cases being in Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia. South Africa has had only two cases since 1974, when the Centers for Disease Control started keeping track of the disease, and only one since 1996.

Do you feel more "politicized" after Trump's victory?

I know I do. I mean, I've always voted in presidential elections and senate/governor races, but I never before felt compelled to follow politics as closely as I do now. I certainly never spent a large amount of time discussing politics with friends and family, as much as I do now. This is the first time I've ever been to political protests or spent time calling senators and congressman's offices.

In a way, Trump's victory has been a bucket of ice water to the face. I honestly realize that I must have been sleepwalking the first 32 years of my life... and I know a LOT of people who feel the same way as I do now. At least, I feel like this has been a wake-up call to a lot of similar people.

For what it is worth, I'm 32, college-educated and so there is absolutely no excuse for my previous apathy and complacency.. but well, that is my truth.

Anybody else feel the same way?

Any recommendations on how to record streaming video?

I would like to record some online streaming videos, and googled to discover that many programs will do it. One in particular, "any video recorder," seems like it will do it. When I google reviews, some say that there is a lot of malware attached, and some say that there is not. I am on a mac. Has anyone had experience recording streaming video? Can you recommend a program that won't fuck up my computer? Thank you.

Infectious Disease Expert Says It's Entirely Possible Trump Suffers From Untreated Syphilis

There has been a great deal of speculation in recent weeks about Pres. Donald Trump’s mental health and a debate has sprung up among psychiatric professionals as to the ethics of discussing the chief executives wellness. After Trump’s voluble, rambling hour and 17 minute press conference on Thursday, that speculation has acquired a new urgency.

On Friday, The New Republic published an essay by infectious disease specialist Steven Beutler who believes that Pres. Trump may well be suffering from dementia but that the cause could be clinical rather than psychological.

“Physicians like me have also taken notice of Trump’s bizarre, volatile behavior,” Beutler wrote. “Given our experience, we can’t help but wonder if there’s a medical diagnosis to be made. After all, many medical conditions exhibit their first symptoms in the form of psychiatric issues and personality changes. One condition in particular is notable for doing so: Neurosyphilis.”

Beutler explained that syphilis has been known through history as “The Great Imposter” because it mimics so many other illnesses and syndromes as it moves through its various stages of infection.

“Primary syphilis is the most widely recognized form of the disease. It is characterized by the development of an ulcer, usually genital, a few weeks to a few months after sexual contact with an infected person. If the ulcer is not noticed, or not treated, it heals on its own, and the disease enters a dormant phase. But during this time, the bacteria—a spirochete called Treponema pallidum—spreads throughout the body without causing any symptoms,” he said.

Secondary syphilis develops weeks or months later and is characterized by a wide array of symptoms including fever, rash, fatigue, sores in the mouth and genitals, malaise, muscle aches and swollen glands.

If left untreated at this stage, Beutler said, “the infection enters a prolonged latent phase, which can last decades. During this time, it is asymptomatic and it is not contagious. In some cases, this is followed by a tertiary stage, which is the most serious and may involve any organ in the body. It is seen 10 to 30 years after the initial infection, and is best known for causing neurologic and neuropsychiatric disease: Neurosyphilis.”

Neurosyphilis symptoms can manifest in an array of ways depending upon the patient.

“Commonly recognized symptoms include irritability, loss of ability to concentrate, delusional thinking, and grandiosity,” said Beutler. “Memory, insight, and judgment can become impaired. Insomnia may occur. Visual problems may develop, including the inability of pupils to react to the light. This, along other ocular pathology, can result in photophobia, dimming of vision, and squinting. All of these things have been observed in Trump. Dementia, headaches, gait disturbances. and patchy hair loss can also be seen in later stages of syphilis.”

Do you shop at Aldi?

The grocery store chain. They're massive in Germany and Europe, but I didn't realize that they had more than 1,000 stores in the US already. Sounds like they're going to be expanding in the US this year. What's Aldi like? I'm in So Cal, so my comparisons would be with Vons (Safeway) Ralphs (Kroeger), Stater Brothers, Albertsons, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Sprouts, Smart & Final.

From what I can tell the Aldi stores are smaller than the big guys like Vons and Ralphs, but less specialized than Trader Joe's or Sprouts. They're known primarily for value/discounts, right? Unlike the bigger chains - who have spent hundreds of millions upgrading their stores, it looks like their designs are pretty spare and utilitarian. Are they an obviously German company? Is it a different experience than shopping at American-born grocery stores? I was reading that in order to take a shopping cart you have to insert a coin which you only get back when you return the cart. VERY German.

Henry Cavill Part XIV - The Durrell Creatures attend a brainstorming session with Henry's new manager

JERSEY, C.I. - The critically endangered specimens of Durrell Wildlife Park welcomed Henry's new manager to the park's multipurpose conference center (previously the pen of the Rwandan wombat until it went extinct during Jubilee) for a brainstorming session to "create and build brand-focused, sponsorship-friendly, high-visibility cross-platformed multimedia ventures that will establish Henry Cavill as a global identity." The creatures were instructed to create pitches for a streaming web series in which they would star alongside Cavill that would help establish his public image.

First up were the Andean Meerkats, who pitched a series in which they and Henry Cavill would travel across England and spend the night in haunted pubs. This was deemed too similar to Cavill's regular life.

Next up were the Antillean Wandering Loruses, who pitched a similar concept in which Henry would travel across England and spend the night in the homes of handsome soldiers. This pitch was quickly KO'ed, although Cavill did text the Lorus later that evening to ask if they'd had anyone specific in mind.

The winning proposal was submitted by the Carpathian Hanging Iguanas, who devised an instructional series in which Cavill would teach Brazilian jui-jitsu to his dog so it would finally be able to defend itself. The project was quickly greenlit, with Henry's manager taking executive producer credit as well as a 20 percent cut of all foreign and domestic distribution. Taping of the pilot was scheduled for the next day; however, an hour before taping in the park's amphitheater, Henry called and announced he was dropping out.

7 Reasons you shouldn’t shop at ALDI!

Controversy!

I am a HUGE fan of shopping at ALDI, so much so that I’ve created ALDI Meal Plans to help you save even more money. I do realize that maybe not everyone should shop there, so let me attempt to explain some reasons why you should never step foot in an ALDI.

I mean....the prices are great and the food tastes amazing, but maybe it’s just not the store for you. Maybe you need to shop in a place where they pack your groceries for you and take them out to your car? Maybe you really need to spend all of your money at the Organic Salad Bar in the middle of the store? I don’t know about you, but I still think there may be some reasons why you shouldn’t shop there...Here is why...

1.) You LOVE name brand food.

Gosh, don’t you just love paying full price for items that taste amazing?

Did you know that many of the nations top food manufacturers provide the same exact food to ALDI food markets? The rumors are that ALDI stores get their chicken from Tyson, their cheese is Heluva Good, their eggs, milk and produce are locally sourced, and their cereals from General Mills.

That means that the same exact name brand items are re-packaged into ALDI packages and sold for almost 50% less. So if you like to pay the full price for the box that says the name brand...Maybe you shouldn’t shop at ALDI.

2.) You love to spend hours inside the grocery store.

If you love going up and down every aisle, and looking for the secret/hidden deals inside the grocery store. Shopping at ALDI may not be for you.

Before I started shopping at ALDI, I would spend hours clipping coupons and then even more time shopping in the store looking for unadvertised deals and markdowns. I still coupon, but on a much more realistic scale. I would spend upwards of 4 hours per week planning and shopping, but now that I shop at ALDI I am literally in and out in under 30 minutes.

If you love the thrill of couponing, maybe you shouldn’t shop at ALDI.

3.) You need someone to bag your groceries for you, and are willing to pay $50.00 or more to have them do that.

Bagging your own groceries can be a pain, so if you are willing to pay someone to do that for you go ahead...by all means....What you don’t know is that you are paying someone to do that, by paying more for your groceries.

Instead of paying for someone to bag your groceries, bag your own at ALDI...You will survive. I like to bag mine in my Thirty-One Tote bags in my trunk.

2016-02-23-1456247589-6734573-caraldi.jpg

4.) You don’t have a quarter hanging around your car

Forget about it - why in the world would you have a quarter laying around your car? It’s too much hassle to make sure you have one in your car at all times, instead you drive to the stores where they lend you free carts instead.

Norma McCorvey, ‘Roe’ in Roe v. Wade, Is Dead at 69

Norma McCorvey, the anonymous plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in the United States, reshaping the nation’s social and political landscapes and inflaming one of the most divisive controversies of the past half-century, died on Saturday in Katy, Tex. She was 69.

Her death, at an assisted-living home, was confirmed by Joshua Prager, a New York journalist who is writing a book about the Roe v. Wade decision and had interviewed her extensively. He said the cause was heart failure.

Since the ruling, perhaps 50 million legal abortions have been performed in the United States, although later court decisions and new state and federal laws have imposed restrictions, and abortions have declined with the wide use of contraceptives. Theological, ethical and legal debates about abortion continue in religious circles, governing bodies and political campaigns, and they have influenced elections, legislation and the lives of ordinary people through films, books, periodicals, the internet and other forums.

***BREAKING*** Trump knew Flynn misled officials on Russia calls for ‘weeks,’ White House says

President Trump was aware that his national security adviser Michael Flynn had misled White House officials and Vice President Pence for "weeks" before he was forced to resign on Monday night.

Trump was briefed by White House Counsel Don McGahn that Flynn had discussed U.S. sanctions with the Russian ambassador, despite his claims to the contrary "immediately" after McGahn was informed about the discrepancy by the Department of Justice, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday.

Spicer said that the president and a small group of senior aides were briefed on Jan. 26 after the Justice Department informed McGahn about Flynn's calls.

"We've been reviewing and evaluating this issue with respect to General Flynn on a daily basis for a few weeks, trying to ascertain the truth," Spicer said.

The comments appear contradict the impression given by Trump on Friday aboard Air Force One that he was not familiar with a Washington Post report that revealed that Flynn had not told the truth about the calls.

"I don't know about that. I haven't seen it. What report is that? I haven't seen that. I'll look into that," Trump told reporters on the plane.

The White House Counsel's office conducted a "review" of the legal issues and determined that "there was not a legal issue but rather a trust issue," Spicer said. "The president was very concerned that General Flynn had misled the vice president and others. The president must have complete and unwavering trust of the person in that position."

Spicer said that "the evolving and eroding level of trust as a result of a series of other issues is what led the president to ask for General Flynn's resignation." He added that the president had an "instinctive" belief that Flynn had not broken any laws, which was later "confirmed" by an inquiry led by the White House counsel's office.

Spicer's account of the event that led to Flynn's resignation adds to the confusion among White House officials on that issue. Senior officials told reporters on Monday night that Flynn offered his resignation voluntarily. And White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said on the "Today" show Tuesday morning that Flynn "had resigned" and was not forced to quit.

"The president is very loyal. He’s a very loyal person," Conway said. "And by nighttime, Mike Flynn had decided it was best to resign. He knew he became a lightning rod, and he made that decision.”

The press secretary repeatedly said that Trump was not concerned with the nature of the conversations that Flynn had with the Russian ambassador but that the lack of trust created an "unsustainable" situation.

"The president has no problem with the fact that he acted in accord with what his job was supposed to be," Spicer said.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me name a show on NPR

I heard it this evening & I heard just the last 15 minutes. It sounded like a live show. There was a comedienne & there was a singer singing original songs with his guitar.

It was all very jolly and light hearted. Lots of banter. The main guy, the host, I guess...said it was the last show of the season.

Straight afterwards there was that guy who plays Jazz & Frank Sinatra, that sort of thing - talks in a Noo Yawk accent, very slowly. I've heard him often, so I'm guessing his famous/familiar with NPR listeners.

It's so irritating because the schedule for Saturday on the site ends at 8PM - why for fuck's sake? (see link) & I'm sure it was later.

Does any of this make sense to you?

It seems gay men are much more particular about looks, physique, etc. than straight men. Straight men are satisfied with a average looking woman. while gay want a Sean Cody model.

Why?

A Produce Butcher

Whole Foods’ newest outpost, near Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan, opened on January 28th with something never seen before in a Whole Foods: a produce butcher. The idea is not too far off from, say, a seafood butcher: you pick out at item, and the butcher prepares it the way you’d like. On the other hand, seafood butchers usually don’t charge extra (and requires a bit more skill if we’re being honest), while the produce butcher charges either a dollar per pound or, for items less than a pound, a dollar per individually priced item.

Could The MSM's Treatment Of Trump Actually Start To Make Him Seem Sympathetic?

Today's lunchtime debate at work:

Given how much the mainstream media mock Trump about personal issues rather than political issues (e.g. his hair, the way he dresses, his relationships with Ivanka, Tiffany, Melania and the sons, Barron, his tackiness, his accent, etc.) are they in danger of making him seem sympathetic?

PRO: Pretty soon, all people will hear is the pundits freaking out about his gaffes (e.g., NYT Krugman's column about him calling Japanese PM by wrong last name) and not about his policies and decide that the press just bullies Trump because he's sort of Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack and they are a bunch of elitist snobs.

CON: We shouldn't treat him with kid gloves and if he's going to mock say, disabled reporters, the press has a right to mock him back.

Thoughts?

JESSICA LANGE

Okay, so. I'm the ultimate Lange fangirl.

I stumbled upon her majesty in 1986 at the age of 5 when I first saw her in "King Kong" during one of those WPIX 11 Thanksgiving airings (I'm a Bronx boy). At the time, I was also obsessed with dressing up in my mom's clothes, clinging to my She-Ra doll and a certain boy named Jonathan in my Kindergarten class.

Back to Magisterial Lange. I was obviously struck by her beauty (I eventually cut She-Ra's hair down to a bob and pretended to be Kong while climbing furniture in my parents' apartment with Dwan in hand, lol), but I also wanted to be her. I can remember playing in the bathtub, pretending that the tub was Kong's hand and recreating the famous waterfall scene as I showered . This went on for about a year before I grew out of that strange yet endearing phase.

Fast forward and now I'm 8-9 years old. I catch an HBO airing of "Sweet Dreams". I'm rapt. I have no idea that the actress I'm watching is the same actress from "King Kong". I develop an obsession with both the film and Patsy Cline, reading her biography and asking my parents to buy me the soundtrack to the film and subsequently her original albums. I even went as far as recording myself lip-syncing to Cline's songs using my parents' camcorder when no one was around. My father eventually found the tape, destroyed it and beat me senseless.

Part of my obsession, I believe, developed because of the domestic violence angle in the film. My father, at the time, became extremely abusive towards me due to my femininity and aversion to sports and all things masculine. I not only wanted to sing like Cline; I wanted to have her strength as portrayed by Lange in the film. As things usually do in pre-pubescence, my obsession with Cline and the film gradually waned.

I have a liquid memory of watching a film with my mom in which a familiar blonde woman is screaming in a courtroom and being dragged away ("Frances"), but I'm not all that interested at the time. The image sticks but I have no connection to it. I'm 10-11 years old at the time.

How did you spend your free time as a teenager?

Between homework, volunteering and track there was not a lot of spare time. I had a job at a local Italian cluband afterward we would park our cars near the beach or in the parking lot of the bowling alley and smoke. Not weed, cigarettes. Sometimes someone would bring Midori stolen from their parents. Such was life in the barren outer suburbs.

Service Bottoms

Friend of a friend was complaining about how there's this hot guy he's been hooking up with on and off who only hits him up when he wants sex and the hot guy just wants this dude to blow him. Sometimes he'll fuck him, but he doesn't touch the guy's dick or kiss him.

I was like "dude, you're a service bottom. Most good looking top guys have a few."

He got all offended (even more so when I offered to make him one of mine-- dick move, I know, but the guy is sort of a tool and a braggart.) and claimed I was making that up, and that this sort of relationship is not common.

So it's not just a Millennial thing because of Grindr, right? I thought it was pretty common with guys for years. Everyone gets something out of it so long as no one has any expectations that it's anything more than what it is.

Words that have been ruined for you

"Problematic" now automatically makes me wince because of the SJW connotations. In fact, you could say it triggers me.

"Snowflake" - it's a nice word, isn't it? It sounds pretty and delicate, like the thing it's describing. But now it just makes me think of "special snowflakes".

"Tremendous" - perfectly cromulent word, ruined by its association with Donald Trump.

I don't get why this "straight" guy does porn. Everyone from Fairborn Ohio knows he had it made. His dad , Dave Hiles has been a cop in town for more than 20 years! His family also owns a lawn care business that does so well. I played soccer against him in high school and he called everyone a fag. I don't get it, Fairborn is pretty poor and his family has it all, good house and cars. Shit, his family is so conservative, it puts the rest of Fairborn to shame. I had to move to the west coast to escape all that shit and then BAM! who do I see sucking more dick than I ever have ? Luke Hiles!

I can't figure it out. It's not that we need someone to do actual heavy lifting for us, or to physically protect me.

All muscles really mean is that someone is physically disciplined for a long period of time and has enough leisure time to go regularly to the gym.
