“During Bossert’s remarks, he set the very unnerving calculation that every federal government employee costs the US tax payer $40,000 per year in technology costs alone.” Everyone reading this should have done a legitimate double take as you read the 40K per year per employee number. Furthermore having worked in the IT industry for close to 20 years every person reading this should be horrified by the sheer amount of your taxpayer dollars that are being inefficiently spent by the government doing what every business in the US does every day for a fraction of that cost.
I can’t make it any simpler than Director Comey had to fired. In fact I think this move was long overdue and should have been done either back during the Obama administration or soon after President Trump took office. For too long Director Comey has allowed the FBI to be politicized. We have selective leaks of information being used to partisan political attacks, we have seen potential conflicts of interest run rampant throughout the organization, we have incompetence and each of these has served to erode public trust in our nation’s most prestigious law enforcement agency.
While I have no doubt that this argument began as a way to temper the baser instincts of us Y chromosome carriers, the hyperbolic nature of the feminist rhetoric has fanned the flames of this debate into a raging war against masculinity and ensures that anyplace where the concept of ‘toxic masculinity’ is taken seriously is simply an environment that is toxic to masculinity.
Denier is a word that is better suited for the Spanish Inquisition rather than a modern science debate. Yes the issue of climate change should still be very much up for debate, despite the calls from the Left that it is settled science and we should all just fall in line like good little sheep. I do not deny that climate change is real. It has been happening since the beginning of time with our earth going through five different ice ages. I will even concede that a portion of it might even be manmade, but…
Republicans managed to get their version of healthcare reform through the house and the collective Left has lost their sh$t. I would say I am surprised, but it seems the Democratic insanity and hyperbolic characterizations of those with a Conservative bent just never ends. Being a liberal nowadays is simply to exhausting to even contemplate.
Just reading the headline “Impeach Trump! LA City Council Demands ‘high crimes’ probe that could end presidency” from My News LA I am led to wonder if this is a product of the newly removed laws on marijuana or if the entirety of the LA City Council has gone stupid with Trump Derangement Syndrome. As noted in the article “The resolution calls for the city’s 2017-18 federal legislative program to include support for any legislative action to investigate whether Trump has violated the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution or committed any other high crime or misdemeanor.”
Did the title of my article offend you? If it did tough crap because I have first speech protections that allow me to freely use the word tyranny without fear of prosecution. Tyranny is alive and well on our streets, but unlike the media narrative being pushed by left leaning media outlets the purveyors of control are not President Trump and Republicans, but the regressive Left and their cadre of SJWs play acting as black masked thugs. I have heard some ridiculous things this past year, but reading the Op-Ed penned by Berkeley student senator Juniperangelica Xiomara Cordova-Goff “Campus must prioritize safety of marginalized over free speech”…
I can’t believe I am about to say this… but I have to admit I sort of agree with Rosie O’Donnell, Paton Oswald and George Takei in defending that Colbert’s constitutional right to say that Trump was only “good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*ck holster.” I don’t agree with his statement, I don’t find it remotely funny, but I will die to allow him to continue to spew his irrational hatred on a nightly basis. This is the same right that should be extended to everyone even those whose speech I vehemently disagree with like Richard Spencer or Stephen Colbert.
No Vox did not actually watch “The Interview” to get their facts, but it was almost as bad as they were citing a New York Times article. In the NYT article they seem paint a much rosier picture of the economy of North Korea than what know to be the established facts about that economy. In essence their argument for putting this bright shiny spin on the North Korean economic outlook… the economy used to really really suck, but now it sucks slightly less.
I only can think of one word to describe Republicans in Washington… Feckless. The proposed budget that is coming down the pike only proves that the majority of current DC Republicans are nothing more than tax and spend surrender monkeys. So just so we are all on the same page… Republicans control the House, the Senate and the White House and the budget is being whole heartedly praised by Senator Schumer.
