American T.V.–And Society–Has Become Completely Trashed with Commercials

Greed is overtaking America, and the most obvious place to see this is on T.V. There are seemingly more commercials than programming on T.V. now. They sold us on buying a cable subscription by promising fewer, if no more commercials. Ha, what a lie that has turned out to be. It is getting to the point where you don’t even want to watch T.V. anymore. I know if I see one more commercial for a drug that may kill me, I just may die. America has a lot of soul-searching to do, and part of that searching is to...

Ivanka Trump is Experiencing ‘Labor Pains’

Vox reports that a labor watchdog had plans to publish a blistering report next month on the labor practices of a Chinese company that produces Ivanka Trump-branded shoes. But the group says that over the weekend, two of its investigators in China disappeared and one was arrested there, raising yet another set of questions regarding the ethics of having a presidential administration with extensive business interests in foreign countries. China has a reputation for cracking down aggressively on labor activists and human rights groups, especially under the notably authoritarian rule of Chinese president Xi Jinping. But China Labor Watch’s...

Putin Tells Trump to ‘Drill Baby, Drill,’ So Trump Puts America at ‘Third-World’ Status

One must scratch one’s head to figure out why Donald Trump would pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Agreement, until one realizes that it is what Putin wanted. What ‘Puty’ wants, he seems to get these days, and it turns out that the melting of the Arctic will allow Putin to drill, baby drill, right into the sweet spot of oil. Hey, if Putin wants it, Trump does...

Donald Trump is Nothing But a Lying, Cheating Drama Queen

“If you get up every day and try to make Donald Trump’s ludicrous and dangerous pronouncements sound normal and sane, you are an enabler,” Bil Maher said during his “New Rule” segment. “Twenty years from now when your kids ask you over a glass of soylent green ‘What did you do during the Trump years, Daddy?’ you don’t want your answer to be ‘My job was to go on TV and pretend Trump didn’t say whatever you just heard him say.’ That is an enabler and that word is not a compliment.” About White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer,...

Trump Has Made a Total Mess of American Foreign Policy and Germany Wins

According to USA Today, President Trump received a largely cordial welcome on the first overseas trip of his presidency. But now that he’s returned to Washington, the foreign leaders he met with are increasingly blunt in their reviews of the American president. In separate remarks intended mostly for domestic consumption, leaders of Germany, France and Israel all sought to distance themselves from Trump, just days after meeting with the president during his nine-day foreign trip to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Vatican City, Brussels and Italy. Among the sources of friction: Trump’s reluctance to unreservedly commit to the North Atlantic alliance,...

Kevin Spacey Is about to Take down Trump’s ‘House of Cards’

Sometimes, the truth is just as strange as fiction, according to House Of Cards star Kevin Spacey. He compared his character Frank Underwood to Donald Trump on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. ‘At some point between when we’ve shot the season and before it drops there are three or four or five things that we have dealt with on the show happen that end up happening in the real world,’ the 57-year-old actor said. Tomorrow, the day after Labor Day, The House of Cards will debut season 5 with a season promising to make even President Trump look...

America Just Loves Its Bullies, Like Trump and Gianforte

First, Gianforte, candidate for Congress bodyslams a reporter and will still likely be elected because, you know, America just loves its bullies. Speaking of American bullies, watch this video of Trump shoving another world leader aside to get in front. I don’t know about you, but I believe America needs to take a very close look at itself in the mirror and decided if it truly likes what it...

If Melania Divorces the President She Will Become a Hero to Women Around the Globe

Yes, this is total speculation, but it sure seems that Melania Trump wants to stay as far a way as possible from her husband, Donald Trump. First, we learned that originally, Melania wouldn’t move into the White House with the President. That fact in itself is the most puzzling thing I have ever heard. I mean, really? Who wouldn’t want to move into the White House, a place that just about everyone in the world would want to live? Then again, more speculation, if you had to do it with a person you just despise, then I could see...
