    • Missouri seeks to change laws in battle against opioid crisis
      Good idea. I wish we had this here: Like many other states, Missouri is trying many different methods to combat the opioid crisis that continues to rage. As part of that effort, the legislature is reexamining some of the laws on its books to see if changes can possibly stem the problem. One of the […]

    • The Roots of Trump’s Policy of Separating Children from Parents
      So, you’ve all heard about this by now. It is, obviously, a terrible crime. And yeah, evil. It is an extension of Obama’s policy of holding families (without splitting them up, but still in terrible conditions). If you want to understand the link, read this Twitter thread. Thread: How did we get here? In 2015, […]

Stroll: On the day when you were born

The angels got together…

********************************************
Well, here's a guy who'll never get laid again. 28 year old software engineer James Damore, incautiously wrote a memo complaining that Google, the place where he worked, had too many women in it.

Yes, at 31% women, google is teaming with stressed out bitches and there is such a thing as too much diversity. Maybe it's because they're surrounded by 69% male assholes who like to interrupt them, demean their intelligence and steal their credit? Just a guess.

Mr. Damore also said there's not enough of a conservative voice at google. I know, we're all playing our tiny violins.

BTW, this guy was a graduate student in molecular and computational biology before he went to google. Normally, the more narcissistic and sociopathic elements among my former colleagues went to Wall Street to cash in big. Sounds like Damore just couldn't cut it or didn't even get an offer.

But all's well that ends well. Google fired him.

That'll learn them to tighten up their candidate screening.

Evangelical pastor Robert Jeffress, Trump's favorite fanatical end-timer, is perfectly ok with Trump turning North Korea into a glass parking lot.

“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil,” Jeffress said. “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un."

The biblical passage Romans 13 gives the government authority to deal with evildoers, Jeffress said. “That gives the government to the authority to do whatever, whether it’s assassination, capital punishment or evil punishment to quell the actions of evildoers like Kim Jong Un,” he said.

Well, I guess if god says it's ok…
