A public elementary school in Mississippi named after the president of the Confederacy will be renamed to honor the first black president of the United States.

Davis Magnet International Baccalaureate Elementary in Jackson, which is named for Jefferson Davis, will be renamed Barack Obama Magnet International Baccalaureate Elementary beginning next school year, the school’s PTA president, Janelle Jefferson, said at a Jackson Public Schools Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday night. The prospect of changing the name of what Jefferson called the best elementary school in Mississippi was raised by a student, she told NBC News. “They know who [Davis] was and what he stood for,” she said. “This has a great impact on them, because [Obama] is who they chose out…

Full Frontal Thursday: Weinstein, Women’s Health Care Rollback, and Finnish Fake News

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Ms. Bee talks about the scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein, and how his disgusting acts were covered up for decades by many – including the very women who are now speaking out. Hey, nothing like a good old-fashioned sex scandal to boost a sagging career, and the money earned will boost their sagging body parts.

Also, women’s health care is under fresh assault again. Companies are now free to deny birth control if it goes against “religious or moral beliefs.” Isn’t that delightful? Funny how bible-thumpers don’t see that they really are just as restrictive of women’s rights as the Muslims they hate – perhaps even more so – but why let little things like facts and reality get in the way?

And finally, Sam’s token Brit takes a trip to Finland, since she’s the only member of the crew who would be allowed inside the borders of that frigid, sub-Arctic locale. Now that I think about it, Sam and the other Canuck chick would be accepted, too…

Full Frontal Thursday: Puerto Rico, Health Care, and Bubby vs. Bubby!

In today’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam gives us a primer on the history of Puerto Rico with assistance from Javier Muñoz. Also, a health program known as C.H.I.P. faded out of existence, and we’re taken to Florida to see how ‘civilized’ elderly, retired Jewish people discuss politics. It’s so much different than the way politics is discussed in every other corner of the USA!

Last Week Tonight: Corporate Consolidation

First off, congratulations are in order: Last Week Tonight won an Emmy! Now, on to the meat of the post.

In this installment, John discusses corporate consolidation and how lack of real competition has created laziness and lack of consideration for customers / consumers.

Full Frontal Thursday: Freedom(ish) of Speech!

In this installment of ‘Full Frontal Thursday,’ Sam talks about the hypocrisy of people who demand freedom of speech – unless an ESPN reporter offends their delicate, fragile little fee-fees by calling the Drumpf the racist asshole that he is!

The Drumpf’s token Black mouthpiece, Omarosa Manigault, also gets an “honourable” mention. She is proof that there are a good number of Black people out there in the world, both male and female, who are invested in throwing other Black people under the bus in order to earn praise and favour from the colonialists that they cling to.

Full Frontal Thursday: Tuggin’ Ted, DACA, and…WTF?!?

Samantha Bee returns and talks about the one-two punches of Harvey and Irma, as well as how the dreams of DACA recipients are becoming a huge, collective nightmare.

Also, I think she ate too much Wonder bread and Kraft singles during her break, because she’s taken a remarkably soft tone about hate-mongers and how they just need to be understood. Hug a nazi? Yeah…sure. I’ll hug one of those fetid heaps of human waste the same way they want to hug me. With a rope. From a tree. Complete with the entry and exit holes from a large caliber hand-cannon ventilating the cranial cavity.

She is funny and has great writers, but her judgement skills aren’t the greatest. Remember her backing of Gary Johnson? Yeah…

Last Week Tonight: The Presidential Pardon of Joe Arpaio

In this newest installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about the presidential pardon of Joe Arpaio, and what precedent it sets while this regime is in power.

I Swear…

…because I’m an adult. I use adult language once in a while, but not in a gratuitous fashion. That being said: FUCK TRUMP.

Deal with it.

Political Mash-Up: Hurricanes, North Korea, and Nuclear Waste

I just wanted to post a few things to think about on this Thursday, courtesy of YouTube! Harvey has left devastation in its wake, and now Irma is barreling down the Hurricane Highway. With a good number of Superfund sites being located in Texas, as well as the chemical plants now burning down that way, I figured that revisiting the topic of nuclear waste isn’t too farfetched.

Oh, and there’s still an investigation going on regarding Drumpf’s connections and collusions with Russia – but you won’t hear about it on the FauxNews Network!

Thoughts For Thursday: Political Mash-Up!

On this last day of August, I decided to post a few selected interviews and opinions about politics. I may not discuss politically-related things with others, but that isn’t indicative of being unaware of or uneducated about said topic! Most times, the best way to learn about something is to simply immerse yourself in it – especially when questions asked garner the suspicion and scorn of others. I do my best to ask questions of people who appear to know something on a subject, but if they are unable to answer (and unwilling to admit that they are full of shit) then I shift gears and adjust accordingly. Learning something important and invaluable is a guarantee when I go that route, and the information gathered isn’t occluded by the extraneous and unnecessary.
