Teen Vogue? Really?

A fashion magazine for spoiled rich that girls wants to exterminate their readers?

Or is the Revolution not quite what it seems?

Trump says he intends to 'ban' TikTok from the US

Trump says he intends to ‘ban’ TikTok from the US

President Trump on Friday night said he intends to “ban” the Chinese-owned video-sharing app TikTok from operating in the U.S.

“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One.

The president said he planned to take action against the social media platform as soon as Saturday, according to a pool report of his remarks.


No big loss, but there is the question of whether he has the authority.

Also, the USA isn't China so VPNs aren't illegal. So any such ban is not enforceable.

EU funding withheld from six Polish towns over 'LGBT-free' zones

EU funding withheld from six Polish towns over 'LGBT-free' zones

he European Union has rejected grants under a twinning programme to six Polish cities because of their attitude to the LGBTQ community.

The announcement was confirmed on Twitter by the EU's Equality Commissioner, Helena Dalli.

"EU values and fundamental rights must be respected by member states and public authorities," Helena Dalli said on Tuesday.

“This is why six town twinning applications involving Polish authorities that adopted ‘LGBTI free zones’ or ‘family rights’ resolutions were rejected.”

It is unclear which towns have not been selected for grants.

The cities and municipalities had applied for a grant between €5,000 and €25,000 under the twinning programme of the Europe for Citizens project, which aims to stimulate debate and civic participation on EU policies.


This has Roman Catholic Church written all over it.

WTF happened in 1971?

Interesting site featuring a bunch of economic graphs.


I have some ideas about this, but would like to see what others say first.

The site does not answer the question at least not directly.

De Blasio rips Yankees for allowing Trump to throw first pitch at Yankee Stadium

De Blasio rips Yankees for allowing Trump to throw first pitch at Yankee Stadium

President Trump’s not fit for pinstripes, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The mayor slammed the New York Yankees for inviting “hatred to your pitcher’s mound” by allowing President Trump to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium next month.

“After CONDEMNING racism, the next step isn’t inviting it to your pitcher’s mound,” de Blasio tweeted Saturday.

“To the execs that have aligned with hatred, you are on the wrong side of history and morality,” he added.


Let's go Mets!
