This is fucking backwards as shit.

Yep. And on top of that, there is this:

A new government report says that the federal black lung trust fund that helps sick and dying coal miners pay living and medical expenses could incur a $15 billion deficit in the next 30 years. That's if a congressionally mandated funding cut occurs as planned at the end of the year.
I feel really sorry for the coal families. 1) they are still being lied to about their industry but 2) they have to deal with this now

The coal industry is screwed - not just from demand issue, but from this now:

Quote:
Increasing the tax or even leaving the current rate in place would burden the coal industry, says Bruce Watzman, an executive at the National Mining Association.

"The competition among fuels for electric generation is intense and a couple cents a kilowatt hour makes a difference in the fuel source that's generating the electricity," Watzman adds.

Oh, and if the gov't forgives this debt, then the taxpayers will have to pay for it.....

Again, progress continues, just at a slower pace under the dizzy baboon.


The Supreme Court voted 9-0 today that:
"The laws and the Constitution can, and in some instances must, protect gay persons and gay couples in the exercise of their civil rights, but religious and philosophical objections to gay marriage are protected views and in some instances protected forms of expression[...]

[...] it is unexceptional that Colorado law can protect gay persons in acquiring products and services on the same terms and conditions as are offered to other member of the public"

if [the religious] exception were not confined, then a long list of persons who provide goods and services for marriages and weddings might refuse to do so for gay persons, thus resulting in a community-wide stigma inconsistent with the history and dynamics of civil rights laws that ensure equal access to goods, services and public accommodations.”
In essence, this confirms sexual orientation is a protected class.

Trump thought he was so cool in rescinding the Philadelphia Eagles SB White House celebration. Looks like most sports teams will not be visiting him again:

In essence, this confirms sexual orientation is a protected class.
Already, the State of Arizona has issued a ruling based on the precedent announced Monday.

In the Arizona case, the state appeals court acknowledged Brush & Nib Studio's argument that their religious beliefs precluded their ability to provide services to same-sex couples, who sought wedding invitations.

The court ultimately rejected that argument.


"This conduct, even though it may incidentally impact speech, is not speech," the court wrote. "Further, allowing a vendor who provides goods and services for marriages and weddings to refuse similar services for gay persons would result in 'a community-wide stigma inconsistent with the history and dynamics of civil rights laws that ensure equal access to goods, services, and public accommodations,' " the ruling states.


A trial judge previously denied the business owners' request for a preliminary injunction blocking the enforcement of Phoenix's anti-discrimination ordinance. That ordinance prohibits businesses from refusing service to people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. The Arizona Court of Appeals upheld that decision on Thursday.

So, Doug Ford is going to be my new Premier.

For those wondering, he's the older brother of the late Toronto mayor Rob Ford. Just as greasy, just as less intelligent.

But wow, Kingston went NDP, unseating the Liberals after 23 years!

These are the things I love about Trump:

He gets dogged in Canada for his tariffs so he suggests everybody remove all tariffs on everything. Completely flipped the script

Trump is a Russian-agent. That was revealed at the G7 this weekend.

I don't think Trump is a "Russian agent". I think it's hypocritical of the G7, given their crimes, to keep Russia out. No nation is sinless.

And the hypocrisy train keeps rolling with Jeff Sessions' ruling today.

Russia is out because they have like the 12th largest economy in the world. The G-7 are the world's eight biggest economies (seven countries and the EU).


That's what made Trump's statement so fucking asinine.

I like Ron Howard and so I started reading this article just to see what the responses were, and of course you have the ones you think would be on there, but then there was this one. A generic, but pretty focused thought that nails it.

I dont think this is really much about politics, tweeted one user. Its about a huge cohort of old people who are scared and confused about a changing world, and resentful that privileges they once took for granted seem to be disappearing. Fearmongering media drums this message,
