Apparently all it takes is one Trump missile attack to make our "liberal" media forget all the things Barack Obama did in/to Syria during his Administration. We've been meddling there since time immemorial, not just in funneling American weapons and training to Syrian rebels during the Obama years, but in our century-old attempts to grab as much of the Middle East's oil resources as we can. And more cock-swinging about missile strikes isn't the answer -- the Founders' proscription against "foreign entanglements" is a far better answer.
Ipsos/Reuters poll finds nearly three out of four Americans still don't want their emails, text messages, phone records, or internet activities snooped on "if it would help the U.S. government foil domestic terror plots." Of course Ipsos/Reuters also found most Americans unclear about how much snooping our government is doing on us -- and one wonders what the results would have been if the poll asked about foreign terror plots.
Food industry lobbyists are trying to get the FDA to delay implementation of their new nutrition labels. Because of the financial burden of changing labels Jesus Mary and Joseph aren't these our best and boldest entrepreneurs always whining about the "cost" of new labels like they have to hire monks with quill pens to make them? (Also, that ZOMG $4.6 BILLYUNZ IN COSTZ!!!! is a scare number -- that would be $4.6 billion divided by 20 years and then divided by over 30,000 food manufacturers.)
Adam Johnson at FAIR catches a "liberal" media outlet falling all over itself not to come out and say a police officer allegedly beat up his wife. "Miami-Dade Police Officer Arrested After Wife Ends Up in Hospital," "his wife confronted him about the video which led to a violent argument," "(t)he argument turned physical," "Officer Bradley’s wife received serious injuries to her face area" -- it'd be funny if it weren't so awful.
House "Freedom" Caucus says it'll support another Obamacare repeal bill if "offers from the White House for changes to the bill" are included. These changes include letting states opt out of having to require insurers to cover certain kinds of health care, which will make health insurance worthless in addition to expensive. In other news, arsonists agree to back fire-safety bill if they get to burn more buildings down.
Finally, don't believe the hype that Mr. Trump is so "sick" of "palace intrigue" at his Administration that he's thinking of firing both Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon. The man lives for palace intrigue -- or, at least, lives for feeding the media palace intrigue, which leads to the same result -- and that includes the hasty denial coming from one of his spokeshacks. We need to deprogram ourselves from paying attention to all this drama -- which, unfortunately, means first acknowledging its existence as drama.
