Odds and Ends

1. Trump staffers complain they can’t get dates. Shocker.

2. What jobs are best for your astrological sign. Looks like I’m spot-on as a Scorpio, hehe.

3. Chat benches for the lonely. What a lovely idea.

4. My dad is a right-wing asshole. Surely some can relate.

5. This has catapulted into first place for night creams. So damn good.

6. 11-year-old girl gets the highest Mensa score, beating Einstein. Amazing!

7. Fall is just around the corner. This hat sure would look good, don’t you think?

8. 20 ways how Trump is copying Hitler’s early rhetoric. Frightening.

9. Speaking of Trump and frightening, did you see this?

10. Geography doesn’t seem to be the strong suit of many. Ha!

11. Interesting article on what products you should and should not be putting on your face.

Happy Friday! Last weekend before school starts for us!

    So done. Loved the site for a long time, but the politics and bitterness are getting old.

    To counteract Jess, I’d like to encourage you to keep going with the politics. I love it.

    Haha, thanks. I was interested in politics before this blog and will be interested in politics long after this blog. Fortunately for Jess, she’s getting out at the right time, 2020 is just around the corner!

    I agree with Jess, I am not interested in your political opinions. I am also tired of all the hypocrisy coming from the wealthy. You claim to care about the environment, but you and your fellow podcast host, Kristen are HUGE consumers, promote wasteful products and spending, and both do a lot of traveling. You don’t practice what you preach. When was the last time you shopped at Goodwill, or decided not to have individual meals or “detox soups” delivered to your door because that would be wasteful? You also seem to have very little understanding of those who are in a lower class than you. Healthcare is already available to the poor, and middle class families in my state. If you had ever been on a government run health care plan you would know what a mess it is, and how frustrating it can be to get things covered. The best doctors and dentists in town don’t accept it because it is such a huge hassle. I think politicians like Warren mean well, but I disagree with her that more government is the solution.
