Ok, so there will be a lot of original music today (this is part of what I’ve been doing as blogging becomes more of a hobby, that and teaching). Here’s one that cracked me up the other day, so hopefully it will put a smile on your face… …because there’s also some really bad news [Read More…]

Creationist Ben Carson declines any official role in Trump administration.

So Trump promised to “drain the swamp”, but has started putting all his cronies into power like Steven Bannon, Newt Gingrich, and Rudy Guiliani. Fancy that.

Supreme Court denies cert in lawsuit claiming scientifically sound education standards favor atheism.

Here’s a happy story we all probably need right now.

Part of what I do with my day is watch political rallies live and, let me tell you, Trump does a lot of them. It’s the same shit over and over, and I find myself longing for sweet release from the burden of life less than five minutes in. But sure enough, when the plane [Read More…]

Fareed Zakaria has a beautiful explanation of why we cannot elect Trump.

This is one of the most powerful pieces of political commentary I’ve ever seen. CNN’s Fareed Zakaria explains why he will be voting against Donald Trump on Tuesday: And if you’re the type who doesn’t base their political positions on facts and such, here’s a bunch of celebrities singing a funny, but poignant song about [Read More…]

This weekend is the Extra Life fundraiser! Here’s the WWJTD hub for the event.

November 6th is the day of the annual Extra Life fundraiser.

Scott Walker gives us a good reason to vote for Hillary.

Scott Walker, the Republican governor of Wisconsin, tossed out a tweet this morning: If you like the past 8 years, vote @HillaryClinton. pic.twitter.com/cQEtIgPsEz — Scott Walker (@ScottWalker) November 1, 2016 And you can probably guess how Twitter, to the delight of Hillary Clinton, is reacting to it.
