Scott Walker is extremely creepy: “Potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said in an interview on Friday that mandatory ultrasounds for women hoping to get an abortion was “just a cool thing.”
And here is another example of Scott Walker’s insane love and support of Big Government. I’m telling you, people, this guy has very serious mental issues. I would not say this lightly. Jeb Bush, for instance? Stupid and useless but not sick. Mitt Romney? A congenital idiot but not unhealthy. Scott Walker, though? Serious issues.
Of course, Mitt Romney might be sane but his supporters aren’t always very stable. A woman ran over her husband with an SUV because he didn’t vote for Mitt Romney.
“A recent study of overworked management consultants in the US found that 35% employed in this occupation actually “faked” an 80-hour work week.” There is an even greater number of such people in academia. The most “overworked” and “stressed out” are always those who never publish anything and teach the same course for decades.
Kerry’s humiliation only worked for a short time: “Russia’s army is massing troops and hundreds of pieces of weaponry including mobile rocket launchers, tanks and artillery at a makeshift base near the border with Ukraine, a Reuters reporter saw this week.”
[Spanish]. Gender-selective abortions in Spain. Barbarity spreads and gains ground.
The new entries in Merriam-Webster‘s unabridged dictionary.
And competing for the title of the idiot of the week, “creationist suggest that if we believe in Evolution that Josh Duggar did nothing wrong.”
It is sad that completely unqualified, pedagogically illiterate people make it into higher ed.
“How hypocrite Michelle Duggar compared transgender people to ‘child predators’ 12 years AFTER her own son admitted molesting young girls as they slept.” These people are beyond disgusting.
This is the best piece ever on why print journalism is dying. I was about to write this post myself but the linked author did it better than I ever could.
You will never believe which TV show this is about: “It introduced a drama of true complexity and characters of great depth, qualities absent in the television landscape at the time. It felt less like older dramas like NYPD Blue orthirtysomething and more like European art cinema.” People are so weird.
“Life is too short for a full-time job. Too short, and too precious.” We will be hearing more and more of this in the coming year. I’m trying very hard not to be judgmental and I’m almost succeeding. OK, this is a lie, I’m not succeeding.
“The vast majority of the claimed benefits of nursing simply do not hold up when we look at the best data.” Like anybody with half a brain doubted this.
Poor little rich women. “Little” is definitely the word here.
“Will the United States remain the most powerful country in the world? Many think not. Those who feel this way also tend to think that China’s ascent will lead to America’s decline.” Oh, come on. China is so not it. I thought that the decade of fretting over the ridiculous fantasy of China as the world’s next superpower was long over.
“Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, a women’s college in Indiana, announced Tuesday that it will start to admit men.” This is amazing news. Ghettoization of education is just wrong.
Sharia law at Walmart! Horrible panic! Apocalypse! Scary, scary shit! No, not really. It’s just funny.
