Not Breaking, but Interesting News

    Remind me again why we don’t need feminism. Have at it in the comments section below the post.

  "In eastern Europe, there are growing numbers who feel there's a sort of elite conspiracy involving too much concentration of power, too much corruption and too much neglect of the interest of ordinary people." <-- Sound familiar? It should.

Granted, he was at a private dinner when he said those things, but that just makes it feel more authentic. To be fair, he did make a public statement defending himself. Emil Michael said, "The remarks attributed to me at a private dinner – borne out of frustration during an informal debate over what I feel is sensationalistic media coverage of the company I am proud to work for – do not reflect my actual views and have no relation to the company’s views or approach." What do you think?

  I can hear you rolling your eyes, but I can also hear the growing pains of language. It never stops evolving and to evolve you’ve got to do some questionable shit it seems.

  My husband and I cut the cord a while back. Shortly thereafter, the cable company told us we could get an even cheaper deal--cheaper than just our internet connection--if we signed up for their Latino package. Today, we’ve got about 30 channels we almost never watch, but our bill is in fact 8 dollars cheaper. I will never understand that.

  If this doesn’t make you mad, I don’t know what to tell you anymore. “Deep flaws” indeed.
