  1. Bill O’Reilly is out at Fox News.

    Who are we winning points with here?

    1. Carlson replacing him is just like switching brands of douche

      1. He’s not that bad. He’s nowhere near as awful as O’Reilly or Hannity.

        1. I agree.

          Whether he pulls in the numbers remains to be seen.

        2. He is definitely smarter than O’Reilly, but is a much bigger douche.

          1. Yeah he does the smirky face thing, asking loaded questions, talks over his guests, assumed bad premises, all the usual crap that narrative-pushing talk show hosts do.

        3. I caught him once or twice and wasn’t impressed. The guests couldn’t get a word in edgewise before “I have to go. Time’s up for this segment.” Kennedy does this too as do many or most other hosts on any network. Allocate enough time, shut up, and let the guests talk, then give your opinion.

          1. Watch the Rubin Report on YouTube.

    2. Hello.

    3. A guy can’t masturbate while talking to his female employees any more?

      They are going after conservatives for nothing these days.

      1. Well, not obviously.

  2. Convicted murder and former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was found hanging in his jail cell.

    Did he not know he wouldn’t have to meet Trump?

    1. And I believe MA is one of those states that vacates a verdict if the person dies before the appeals process is completed.

    2. He saw it was National Hanging Out Day and took it very literally, that’s all.

  3. The head of the International Monetary Fund says none of its members oppose free and fair trade.

    Uh, which is it?

    1. No, that’s the quibble. Free AND fair, and since “fair” is a political definition, it means whatever prevents fair trade.

  4. Researchers found a new “super-Earth,” LHS 1140b, just 39 light years away from Earth.

    Does that make us Bizarro Earth?

    1. Well, we are one big reality show.

  5. …just 39 light years away from Earth.

    So then how many parsecs will it take us to make a run there?

    1. 39 Lightyears is roughly 12 Parsecs.

      1. +1 Kessell Run!

    2. “So then how many parsecs will it take us to make a run there?”

      Don’t bother. They don’t sell beer on Sundays.

      1. LHS 1140b = Minnesota

        1. Skol Space Vikings!

  6. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) says he won’t run for re-election in 2018.

    Wait. There is a god?

  7. The Navy and the Marine Corps have officially prohibited service members from sharing nudes without the consent of the subject.

    These pussies would have gotten their ass kicked by the Japs.

    1. I invite you to go up to a present day Marine and tell them they’re a pussy that would have gotten their ass kicked by the Japs.

      1. Those who are supposedly our best and bravest surrendering to the SJW’s and feminazis is pathetic, and it makes me ashamed to be an American.

        These colors do run.

        1. If O’Reilly lost, what chance did the Marines have?

    2. The Japanese Marines had their own scandal sharing naked pictures of tentacled demons. Without Pelosi’s permission, I might add.

  8. Caitlyn Jenner steps out after revealing she wasn’t ‘entirely comfortable’ having sex with wife Kris during 24 year marriage

    The excerpts obtained by People also reveal that his daughters Kendall and Kylie had once caught her dressing in women’s clothing on camera.

    Caitlyn explained: ‘I went into Kylie’s room to check myself out because it had a full-length mirror.’

    However as the two were trying to catch each other in the act of stealing each other’s clothes, they had accidentally recorded their father trying on different outfits.

    ‘Later that night I heard them running to their mother yelling, “Oh my God, what’s on the computer screen?!” said Caitlyn. ‘They were mercifully too young to understand.’

    1. Am I the only who can’t find much of a pulse to care about Jenner one way or another?

  9. Zara Loses Its Skirt Over Pepe the Frog

    On Tuesday, Zara, the Spanish chain owned by Inditex that has more than 2,100 stores in 88 countries around the world and was rated No. 53 on the Forbes 2016 list of the world’s most valuable brands, quietly withdrew a distressed denim miniskirt printed with a cartoon face from its websites and stores in the United States and Britain after it became a subject of social media controversy for the graphic’s resemblance to Pepe the Frog.

    Unfortunately for Zara, however, the brand has a history with public pressure over a product with potentially offensive implications ? especially anti-Semitic implications ? which may have exacerbated the reaction. In 2014, it apologized for offering, and then withdrew, a set of children’s striped pajamas with a yellow star on the breast that was widely seen as resembling a concentration camp uniform (the star was supposed to be a sheriff’s badge). In 2007, it withdrew a handbag printed with folkloric designs, one of which happened to look a lot like a swastika.

    1. It’s like the Disney animator(s) who sneak in sexual imagery.

    2. I guess all frogs look alike to these people. What a bunch of amphibiphobes.

    3. I used to shop at Zara;s. Then I got some muscles on my arms and legs. If it came out that Zara actually originated as a manufacturer of concentration camp uniforms, I would not be surprised. You gotta be a real twigboy to fit into those clothes.

      1. In Europe, size XL is more like a Medium here.

  10. Dammit. I knew I should have bought stock in Tucker Carlson. Now it’s too late.

  11. Ikea Could Soon Open Caf?s Outside Of Its Stores

    After some research by Michael La Cour, managing director of Ikea Food’s, it was discovered that the home goods stores has been racking in a lot of money just from food sales. According to Fast Company, in 2013, $1.5 billion was brought in from food alone. You might think that people are consuming the Ikea food just because it’s a convenient options when they go there shop, but that’s not actually the case. Fast Company also explained that 30% of Ikea Food’s customers came to the store just to eat, and weren’t actually shopping at all. That’s one of the main reasons the company is exploring the idea of opening restaurants and caf?s separate from the stores.

    What the fuck is wrong with people, and do we really need another place for those who don’t have real jobs to hangout and steal wifi?

    1. People need to write their feel-good story or movie scripts somewhere, no?

      IKEA coffee. Yummy.

      1. You will have to build your own coffee cup from little panels of sandwiched sawdust.

    2. My parents do this, but at Costco. I’d actually be happy if they started going to IKEA, move on up in the world.

      1. IKEA higher class than Costco?

        Sure, coffee and foreign meatballs may be fancier than a hot dog, but goddamn is that hot dog good.

        1. Maybe she’s a Swedeophile, you know, she wears H&M, drives a Saab, sips Absolut, loves IKEA, etc.

        2. I go crazy for those foreign meatballs and those delicious pancakes.

        3. IKEA sells hot dogs too, actually.

          Their food is just OK, but their cinnamon rolls are pretty good. I have enjoyed them on rare occasions because they’re gigantic and highly caloric

      2. When my family visits my parents in Seattle, they always take our kids to Costco as my son (a very picky eater) approves of the pizza there. Long time since I ate at Ikea, but I remember it as being good, but not exceptional. And you get more variety of people watching at the Costco food market than at Ikea.

  12. Lena Dunham’s Ultimately Conservative Message

    To put in perspective the magnitude of what Lena Dunham has accomplished with her HBO sitcom Girls, imagine that Michael Jackson had written a merciless satiric novel about a freakish, plastic-surgery-obsessed, formerly black pop singer, or that Bill Clinton had come up with a hilariously caustic screenplay about a truth-challenged southern horndog of a president. Dunham herself, in public appearances and interviews, says unconscionable things, just like her narcissistic screen alter ego Hannah Horvath. But between Dunham the public figure and TV Dunham stands Dunham the writer. She is everything the other two are not: perspicacious, surprising, keenly aware of her own shortcomings. Girls is a prosecutorial indictment of Millennial self-absorption and entitlement. If, in other words, you can’t stand real-life Lena Dunham, writer Lena Dunham has your back.

    1. “Lena Dunham has your back.”

      No thanks and ew.

      1. When Lena Dunham has your back, there is no escaping, my friend. The soles of her feet are hinged like a hawk’s and she can use them to grip your ankles, while she holds your wrists with her hands. Then her tongue and clitoris elongate and become tumescent with surprising girth, glistening with sticky mucus. She takes from both ends, with basal grunts and infrasound thrumming.

        1. Your unamusing rants are the reason there are no libertarian woman.

          1. I guess you have never read The Sparrow, from whence I was inspired for this imagery, and which was written by a woman.

            1. was written by a woman.

              The only female writer I recognize is Ayn Rand.

        2. Be careful. You’re approaching Agile Cyborg territory.

    2. ? what if you can’t stand them both? I’ve seen so many thinkpieces praising the genius of Girls these past few days, and maybe they’re right, but it just seems like they’re adding a lot of interpretation and deeper meaning than is really there. Of course it resonates with urban millennial writers, but there are a lot more people that find it very problematic and not relatable at all. She’s writing about her life ? that’s really all she knows, and it feels more reflective of a very small subset of a very small demographic than an entire generation.

      1. I agree, plus I think this column was subtle trolling.

        1. Good point, it was a bit surprising coming from National Review

      2. She’s writing about her life ? that’s really all she knows, and it feels more reflective of a very small subset of a very small demographic than an entire generation.

        It would seem that Bill O’Reilly has her absolutely smoked on a viewers per year, total viewers, and even a viewers per alleged/admitted sexual assault basis.

        Imagining her Michael Jackson had written a merciless satiric novel about a freakish, plastic-surgery-obsessed, formerly black pop singer and that he was 10,000X less popular than he actually was. More like if Ringo Starr weren’t part of the Beatles and wrote a series of childrens’ novels where he was a tiny imaginary train conductor.

      3. Yeah, what’s with that? I ‘ve learned more about Girls this week just by reading headlines than the entire time the show’s been on?

        1. I’ve still learned absolutely nothing about the actual plot or show itself. Virtually all the meta-information I’ve gleaned has convinced me that people more people should really recognize that Lena Dunham is somewhere between unpopular and outright repulsive. As in ‘I wish I could’ve weathered the Kardashians this blissfully ignorant but, if I had to pay attention to one or the other, I thank God and my wife that it was the Kardashians.’

      1. Girls? I think unintentionally, yes.

  13. The most dangerous catch just got more dangerous.

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017…..laska.html

    “For the second consecutive night, Russia flew two long-range bombers off the coast of Alaska on Tuesday, this time coming within 36 miles of the mainland while flying north of the Aleutian Islands, two U.S. officials told Fox News.

    The two nuclear-capable Tu-95 bombers were spotted by U.S. military radar at 5 p.m. local time.

    Unlike a similar incident Monday night, this time the U.S. Air Force did not scramble any fighter jets.”

    1. So we stopped sending hundred million dollar stealth F-22s after Russia’s prop planes? Did we just surrender or something?

  14. Soil your Undies To Test Your Soil

    The Soil Conservation Council of Canada is encouraging people to bury their underwear in the garden.

    This comes as part of national soil conservation week and the Soil Your Undies Campaign.

    Conserving the soil earns farmer award recognition

    The campaign is based on a scientifically recognized test that was developed by one of the councils member organizations in Ontario.

    They found that by burying undyed 100 per cent cotton underwear for two months, farmers and gardeners will get a good indication of how much organic matter exists in their soil.

  15. He [O’Reilly] will be replaced by Tucker Carlson.

    Awesome! Just when you thought the news couldn’t get any better, it’s America’s most smarmy twerp!

  16. The White House denies President Trump misled anyone[…]

    What? Again? Why, that Mainstream Media is out at it again!

    […] when he said the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson was headed for the Sea of Japan while it was on its way to Australia because it will be going there eventually.

    Oh! Then I don’t understand. Wasn’t that a lie?

    The head of the International Monetary Fund says none of its members oppose free and fair trade.

    Wait – isn’t free trade ALWAYS fair? There’s some kind of semantic game going on here.

    Convicted murder and former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was found hanging in his jail cell.

    Speaking of comeuppance…

    Bill O’Reilly is out at Fox News. He will be replaced by Tucker Carlson.

    The old blowhard replaced by the young blowhard.

    Researchers found a new “super-Earth,” LHS 1140b, just 39 light years away from Earth.

    Right off the main highway!

  17. More like Cucker Carlson… amirite?

  18. By the way, Carlson has been really bad when it comes to basic economics, immigration and trade, since El Trumpo became president, almost to the point of being a different version of Rachel Maddow except Tucker’s hair is… longer.

    Yesterday he invited Mark Cuban to talk about H1B visas and Tucker’s arguments against the program seem to focus on the idea that companies should NOT be looking for bargains…

    1. Well of course not. Because a company’s highest priority is to be a good patriotic flag-waving institution. Serve the state first, serve the customers second!

        1. Sorry, forgot the /sarc tag. I’m just criticizing the supposed super-patriots on both the left and the right who think that an American company’s highest priority is to serve America first.

  19. Researchers found a new “super-Earth,” LHS 1140b, just 39 light years away from Earth.

    So restaurants have something new to add to/ruin everything on their menus, great.
