Fox's Kilmeade Asks African-American Fox Host If She Makes Kool-Aid With Her Cobbler

What a fucking tool! Can't stand Kilmeade! He is the poster child for adolescent, unfunny blatant racist humor that falls flat every fucking time!

HARRIS FAULKNER: All right, so now I'm going to take my peaches and I'm just going to lay them in there.

ELISABETH HASSELBECK: Which is great that they're canned by the way, because you can do this any time of the year.

FAULKNER: You can do this -

HASSELBECK: I love that.

FAULKNER: I do it in the summer, and I put fresh strawberries in here, too.

STEVE DOOCY: Oh, what a good idea.

BRIAN KILMEADE: Do you make Kool-Aid?

FAULKNER: That's another - do I do what?

KILMEADE: Make Kool-Aid.

FAULKNER: No, I don't make Kool-Aid.

KILMEADE: It reminds me of the summer.


Beware the Squatty Potty - Skeptoid

Why not just use a $5 foot stool from Home Depot rather than pay $30 for one of these? Cute advertising campaign though. I would be more apt to buy one as a White Elephant gift or just for a laugh at Christmas.


Overall I would say this about the Squatty Potty: on the positive side it almost certainly enhances your ability to bear down when you go. There is some replicated evidence that squatting does foster ease of going. As for the negatives, there is no evidence that it prevents or treats uncomplicated constipation. There’s no real evidence that anatomic position is a risk factor for constipation, and no real evidence that it is significantly different than other types of toilet squat devices. It leads you to believe that sitting is an impairment to normal bowel movements. That implied problem is not supported by the research and is unlikely, based on uneven distribution of constipation problems.

So why buy a Squatty Potty? I can’t say I think it’s worth it. Truthfully, it looks a little ridiculous, not that that means anything during a bowel movement. It really has no effect on other factors that impact constipation—diet, exercise, age and medical issues. I am uncertain that changing your position is enough of a benefit to help anyone suffering from chronic constipation. I can say that it is not dangerous and it may make it easier for you to bear down or reduce straining if you are constipated. It is just not reasonable to say that it has any significant effect on your overall bowel habits.

On the upside, Squatty Potty is relatively inexpensive, seems safe, and as long as you have a realistic view of the benefit I can see someone using it.

Donald Trump's False Claims: A Closer Look - Late Night with Seth Meyers

TYT Turkey Shoots Down Russian Fighter Plane

All this goes back to our attacking Iraq. We created this mess in the middle east and it's still unfolding. George Bush's mess may eventually lead to WWIII

Historic Rocket Landing

Who do you think will win the Republican Presidential Nomination?

Remember it's early and most people are not tuned into the election yet. It's probably going to shift.

According to Fivethirtyeight polls mean very little right now

He says very few people are paying attention right now. So any movement toward Bernie this early on could suggest it's closer then we think. According to 538 about 50% of voters in Iowa and NH decide during the final week:


Trump's made up Black Crime graphic came from a White Supremacist

Snip: But where did this graphic come from? My first thought was that it must have originated at a white supremacist website like Stormfront, because it really is that bad. But neither Google Image search nor tineye.com found it posted at any websites. Google Images did, however, find the earliest tweet in which this horrible racist image appeared.

Here’s the bio of the person who posted it. Notice that he’s an admirer of Hitler.

And his avatar, that looks like a modified swastika, is the symbol of the neo-Nazi German Faith Movement.

So there you have it. Donald Trump is posting racist imagery that comes directly from neo-Nazis.

I hope you’re not surprised that a guy like Donald Trump, who continually spouts fascist rhetoric, is attracted to fascist memes posted by neo-Nazis. This is where the right wing has ended up in 2015.

Why does Trump refer to his suporters as "fans"?

Here is a clip from what he said about the beating of the BLM protester:


The Republican frontrunner compared what happened at his rally to a Black Lives Matter protest at a Bernie Sanders event, which prompted the Democratic candidate to release a detailed racial justice plan. “This is not the way Bernie Sanders handled his problem, I will tell you, but I have a lot of fans and they were not happy about it. And this was a very obnoxious guy, a troublemaker, looking to make trouble,” Trump said.

Fans? WTF

Top U.S. Psychiatrists Confirm Trump’s Narcissistic Personality Disorder, ‘Textbook Case’

A striking number of leading mental health experts are concerned enough about the possibility of a Trump presidency that they’re willing to speak out, publicly, about the candidate’s “Textbook narcissistic personality disorder.”

During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, developmental psychologist Howard Gardner, a professor at Harvard Graduate School of Education, referred to Trump as “remarkably narcissistic,” while clinical psychologist Ben Michaelis used the term “Textbook narcissistic personality disorder,” to describe Trump.

Snip>Going on, Michaelis described Trump’s constant belittling of other people as a ‘symptom’ of a deeper problem.

“To degrade people is really part of a cluster-B personality disorder: it’s antisocial and shows a lack of remorse for other people. The way to make it O.K. to attack someone verbally, psychologically, or physically is to lower them. That’s what he’s doing.”

Michaelis expressed his concerns about a Trump presidency, saying,

“He’s applying for the greatest job in the land, the greatest task of which is to serve, but there’s nothing about the man that is service-oriented. He’s only serving himself.”
