You know that gun laws have become grossly undervalued in this country when an employer decides to give all of the staff guns for Christmas gifts. That's what's happening at the company BenShot, which manufactures glassware embedded with bullets because that's apparently a thing.
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.
You gotta love a struggling politician grasping at straws... or strawman arguments... except when you absolutely can't because they're being heartless beasts. Especially when said heartless beasts are given A ratings by the NRA. 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.
Have you been taking action against Trump and company ever since January? Here are a few action items of note this week. Keep in mind that a phone call or better yet, an in-person visit is the most powerful, so use these online petitions as jumping off points. You can also write letters to your local paper about these issues or call your radio station
While Trump is the gift that keeps on giving in terms of comedy, he is one of the biggest disasters to ever hit American soil (and potentially the planet itself). That's why so many of us are so grateful for former White House photographer Pete Souza and his quiet yet evocative mockery in the form of photography.
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.
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.

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.
