Not Breaking, but Interesting News

    Jorge Ramos is my hero for many reasons, but he’s my hero today because he stood up to this bully and did his best to make a bitingly valid point, several I’m sure. I think it’s painfully evident by now that Trump can sling it, but he can’t take it, even when it’s thrown at him sans personal attacks. No worries, though. I’ve got a link to a video of Jorge Ramos saying some other stuff that is equally as poignant as anything he could have said in that press room. Enjoy.

  Wow it feels insane that Morgan’s parents weren’t fully aware that they had a schizophrenic child. This is a truly horrifying account of what can go wrong when reality is severely skewed.

  There is no end to the list of ways people will attempt to make money off the tragedy of others.

We can’t hand over our personal freedoms just because it makes us feel safer when we’re watching the evening news. Besides, if you submit mindlessly and ask no questions, you’re giving up all that freedom countless Americans keep telling us they’re constantly fighting for and we can’t have that.

  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Donald Trump messed with the wrong demographic. With a voice like that of Jorge Ramos, we are that much closer to being heard.

  How much longer are we going to pretend that stoners are bad people and marijuana is the Devil? Legalize it already and maybe get some serious clinical trials going, so we know what tools Mother Nature has left at our disposal for survival.
