The fairy tale that should be told!

This is the fairy tale that should have been read to us when we were little:

Once upon a time
~~~~~~~~

in a land far away,

~~~~~~~~

a beautiful, independent,
self-assured princess

~~~~~~~~

happened upon a frog as she sat
contemplating ecological issues
on the shores of an unpolluted pond
in a verdant meadow near her castle.

~~~~~~~~

The frog hopped into the princess' lap
and said: " Elegant Lady,
I was once a handsome prince,
until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.

~~~~~~~~

One kiss from you, however,
and I will turn back
into the dapper, young prince that I am

~~~~~~~~
and then, my sweet, we can marry

~~~~~~~~

and set up housekeeping in your castle

~~~~~~~~

with my mother,

~~~~~~~~

where you can prepare my meals,

~~~~~~~~

clean my clothes, bear my children,

~~~~~~~~

and forever feel

grateful and happy doing so. "
~~~~~~~~

That night,
~~~~~~~~
as the princess dined sumptuously
~~~~~~~~
on lightly sauteed frog legs
~~~~~~~~
seasoned in a white wine
~~~~~~~
and onion cream sauce,
~~~~~~~~
she chuckled and thought to herself:
~~~~~~~~
I don't fucking think so.

Are the residents of Murrieta California anti-vaxxers?

Every story I see about the idiots blocking the buses the morons natter on about their children being exposed to diseases from the immigrant children. Why are they so concerned? I haven't heard of any major disease outbreaks as a result of immigrants into the country or of illness among the most recent influx of immigrants from Central America.

Do the citizens of Murrieta no vaccinate their children to protect them from the ordinary childhood illnesses? That's the only reason I can think of that they are so afraid of their children being near children from other locations.

That and blatant prejudice.

Whoever posted the link to GeoGuessr - a challenge!

I think I just maxed out the score! I just totaled 24998 - only two points short of a perfect score!

Ashleigh Banfield on CNN skewering Hobby Lobby for investments

Of HL's retirement funds into the same companies that make the birth control methods that HL claims to object to. Her guest is pointing out that HL could have instructed their investment management to not invest in those companies. Both women are being very critical of Hobby Lobby's owners.

No link - it's on right now.
