Space Station 3-D Printer Builds Ratchet Wrench

THIS!!!

This is why we have science and technology, and math, and shit that makes your cell phone work. The earth isn’t 5,000 years old, you navel-gazing, closed-minded, backward-assed, lost in the wilderness of Bible knowledge, fundamentalist motherfuckers.

The International Space Station’s 3-D printer completed the first phase of a NASA technology demonstration by printing a ratchet wrench.

Make ‘Em Deader

Fentanyl can kill faster than a politician can steal

Nebraska is now using fentanyl as an execution drug.

This means someone was reading the news and noticed how many people are dropping like flies across the country from accidental fentanyl overdoses. And then someone had an epiphany, that went something like this, “Hey! We’ve been trying to kill some people more efficiently than we have been. Maybe we should learn from the opioid epidemic on how to best make ’em dead faster!”

Congratulations America.

Trust Us

Paul Manafort appears to have had some money problems. He had them on the actual day he left the Trump campaign, no less. In fact, the first thing he did after leaving the campaign was to suddenly apply for tens of millions of dollars in personal loans… in exchange for a promised position of political power.

And of course now we know that he was also having money troubles before he was Trump’s campaign manager too.

But amazingly, in between those two time periods, he volunteered to run Donald Trump’s presidential campaign… for free!

Interesting.

During this time, Trump’s attitude regarding Russia, and specifically Vladimir Putin, visibly changes. A short time later it metastasized onto the RNC’s official platform.

Oh! And at the same time as all of this, a Russian oligarch is suing him for $10,000,000 in open court.

Oh, and apparently years ago, he and Trump were supposed to split Yankees season tickets. But really, they barely know each other.

And we’re all okay with this?

Where to start? …Let’s see:

  • As always, the label ‘fake news’ is only applied to things he doesn’t like or agree with, even though, at this point is almost universally being reported on by all news outlets.
  • He appears to have worded it in a way that tells us the meeting was initiated and controlled by Don Jr., since he is the one who ‘had’ it.
  • His labeling of his son as ‘wonderful’, and the constant concern about his kids getting into trouble that he also displays, tells me that maybe we should have some nepotism laws so our president can concentrate on the other 324,999,999 people in the country he is supposed to show interest in.
  • While there are a whole lot of reasons why it’s probably not okay to have another country help you get elected, it’s even worse if your president, whom is sworn to uphold the laws of our country, instead spends all of his energy looking for loopholes in them instead.
  • It seem to me that politicians should only be allowed to campaign on what they themselves are going to do for their constituents, and how they will achieve it. Not about how horrible everyone else is. Can you imagine if we had to choose everything else in our lives this way?: “Don’t buy Pepsi~Cola. They keep changing their formula… What’s else aren’t they telling us?! — {We’re Coca~Cola, and we approve of this message}

Ask yourself this, if you owned your own business and an employee spent all of their time avoiding work blaming others like this, would you just let it continue without any consequences?

Bernie Sanders thanks the Koch brothers for helping him make the argument for ‘Medicare for all’

As funny as I find this entire story, let’s face it, healthcare in America should be treated like the criminal conspiracy that it is.

Don’t agree? Then by all means, please explain to me why helping other human beings stay alive and healthy should be monetized.

For example, despite the actual wording in these statements, tell me how these two situations actually differ:

1. “If you ever want to see your child again, you must pay $10,000 in small unmarked bills.”

2. “I’m sorry ma’am, but your son has a serious health issue that is fatal if not treated properly. However, it appears as though you have not hit your insurance copay limit, so this would cost you about $10,000 out of pocket… and it’s your only option.”

Sessions announces ‘religious liberty task force’

Okay, I’ll stop pooping these headlines out soon. But first, this one…

I think it may finally be time to start a serious conversation about taxing religious institutions if they’re going to insist on overtly (or covertly for that matter) influencing politics.

— • — • — • — • — • —

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Monday that the Department of Justice is creating a “religious liberty task force.”

“Sessions said the cultural climate in this country — and in the West more generally — has become less hospitable to people of faith in recent years, and as a result many Americans have felt their freedom to practice their faith has been under attack.”

Giuliani: ‘Collusion is not a crime’

America’s Mayor goes ‘El Bonzo Seco’*

As most people know, reporters have to be really careful with the words they choose, otherwise they can easily be sued for libel.

This is why they say a politician told a falsehood, or a misleading statement, because they’ll be sued if they flat out call something a lie. And it’s also why they say collusion instead of conspiracy.

And of course, this is also why Trump wants to tighten the libel laws, so he could sue anyone he wants for saying anything he doesn’t like. When you lie as much as he does, you want to be able to sue anyone who reports that you told an untruth, a fib, falsehood, fabrication, deception, fiction, falsification, white lie, half-truth, exaggeration, tall tale, a whopper, fibbing, misinformation, misleading, or any other synonym that, while less legally binding, still means he’s a lying sack of shit.

“I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime,” Rudy Giuliani actually said this on Fox & Friends.

Anyway, I guess one would assume that his lawyer knows that. So, is Rudy being misleading?
