A Time for Mourning

The following is the comment I posted to the article that follows:

Journalism and truth died and someone forgot to tell me. I have a degree in journalism, and would have attended the funeral. For Truth, probably not. It has been ailing for a very long time in US America. Politicians killed it with a very slow poison. Still, sad to see it go completely.

You blinked and missed one of the biggest bubbles in history

China has seen some pretty dramatic bubbles in recent years, many of which have yet to pop, such as real estate.
The Chinese stock market bubble that peaked and crashed last summer comes to mind.

However, the craziness has only gotten more and more extreme. This time it was the commodities market that went bonkers.

Why is Clinton campaigning so hard in Kentucky?

I am a political junkie and watch everything that is going on regarding the overall campaigns- am I an expert no, but work to educate myself on the current events. Therefore, I have a question for you all, why is Hillary campaigning so hard in Kentucky? Last week she dropped $180,000 (I think this number is correct) on ads, all her advocates, Bill and her have been campaigning exclusively in Kentucky during the last several days- why?

Bathroom Incidents

So, there has been an incident in the Charlotte-Mecklenberg School District.

A trans boy who is a student at Olympic High School had to use the restroom. The school district has plans for a designated facility, but it is not ready yet, so the trans students used the boy's restroom. As the student pulled his pants down to use the toilet, a cisgender student walked in on him.

That student saw the image and immediately walked out.

Jim Crow

NC Gov. Pat McCrory was interviewed on NPR the other day and managed to express the idea that passage of Hate Bill 2 was the fault of transgender people.

If we had not pushed for equal rights and access to public accommodations, then conservative forces would not have been forced to take them away from us.

He and other conservatives were also vehemently upset over AG Loretta Lynch's comparison of the current state of affairs to Jim Crow.
