For literally 5 years, everyone’s facebook feed has been filled with excited updates from friends proclaiming “It’s ‘Back to the Future’ day!” and a photo of the dashboard in Doc Brown’s souped up DeLorean. It wasn’t, and unwitting social media users took part in what has to be one of the most annoying viral trends in recent history.
TV fitness star Jillian Michaels has a new reality television show out tonight called ‘Sweat Inc,’ where Michaels and two co-hosts talent scout for the next workout phenomenon. By all appearances, the show looks to be the typical ‘American Idol’ style format where contestants subject themselves to humiliation and praise from expert hosts in order to become ‘the next… Read More
According to Virgin founder and CEO Richard Branson, the UN is about to urge all governments around the world to decriminalize all drugs.

Trump likely knows his latest assertion is complete bullshit, but he has hit upon a remarkably successful strategy when it comes to shoring up Republican votes: talking incessantly about illegal immigration. And the more topics he links to it, the more powerful he becomes.
A Michigan woman in desperate need of a medical procedure was subjected to some very un-Jesus like treatment by her Catholic hospital.
In another gnawingly irritating screed against Obama for his fictional transgressions against ‘real Americans’ (white people), Palin has outdone herself with a wonderful mixture of sexual innuendo, racism and violent rage.

Connell, in her defense, had found it difficult to hold her hors d’oeuvres plate at a cocktail party in Manhattan, making the jury’s verdict rather unfair.
Recently, Murdoch labeled neurosurgeon-turned-idiot Ben Carson as the “real black president” in waiting – a strange turn of events given Carson’s evident lack of intellectual chops and obvious inability to take on Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. Taibbi has sniffed a rat and sees this race baiting as part of Murdoch’s desperate attempt to undermine Trump – a force he is ill prepared to take on.
Next, the city will be commissioning a $500,000 study as to whether shooting unarmed black men exacerbates race relations in the New York area.
