Surviving The Day's Politics

Between this administration's refusal to do anything about our environmental crisis, which could cause our entire society to collapse within 30 years if ignored, its war on people with uteri and demand to promote the life of a clump of cells over existing people and all the little things--like allowing Russia to hack our elections, instituting tariffs on already broke people and so forth--it's been one of the most stressful times to be

March for Our Lives

This Saturday, March 24, will be the day of the March for Our Lives event across the country. The mission is simple: the people demand that their lives become a priority over guns and that school shootings be stopped. It is outrageous when a politician can enact legislation against storing pets in plane storage one day after a terrible act yet still remain inactive on this issue after deaths every week.

Elizabeth Porter Doesn't Care About Children

You gotta love a struggling politician grasping at straws... or strawman arguments... except when you absolutely can't because they're being heartless beasts.

Putting money and your career before the lives of Americans, no matter what their age might be, is a sure sign that you don't need to be in office anymore.

Resistance Round-Up

Have you been taking action against Trump and company ever since January? Here are a few action items of note this week.

The Worst of the Worst

Donald Trump has been president for less than an entire season and there have already been so many sweeping changes in both policies and the political climate of the country that one would be hard-pressed to pinpoint the worst disaster of his presidency as of yet. Given his propensity to tweet out his feelings as he sees fit and to anger world leaders, it’s likely that the worst is yet to come.

J.K. Rowling Feuds with Piers Morgan on Twitter

When Jim Jefferies flipped Piers Morgan off on HBO last night, you could hear Maher’s crowd hooting their approval, but it was Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling who really let Morgan have it on Twitter following the show. She tweeted the episode to her followers, telling Morgan that sucking up to bullies doesn’t work out in the end, and he’d know it if he’d bothered to read her books.

“Accept God or else!” say Arizona lawmakers

No divinity, no diploma, according to proposed law.

Oh, those cute political pundits in Arizona are at it again! It’s not enough to limit cultural studies, make “show us your papes!” laws, question science and generally make our nation look like a bunch of buffoons on the nightly news, making countries that already laugh at us tired of the same old joke about those stupid Americans again; now they want to add a little religious twist in all of their shenanigans.

Arizona lawmakers are now trying to pass a law that states that in order to graduate from high school, students have to take this super creepy nationalistic oath that ends with “so help me God.” Apparently pledging allegiance to a tiny classroom flag every day for 12 years wasn’t enough for these sheep herders; now you have to declare it loud and proud—or else. Click the link to read the whole zombified language of the oath and see if you’d want to take it yourself.
