One thing that I think that we might all agree with is that the news doesn't stop talking about Trump. Causing a lot of under-the-radar news stories to go underreported. It's sometimes hard for people to see or find information.

This thread is dedicated to sharing news stories or information that you think deserves more attention. Left or Right. Happy or Sad. Reporting or Opinion. All I ask is that you provide links so others can read or watch for themselves.

Jesus. That's a sad story.

Wait. Why did these retards try him for second degree murder? There's way too much evidence to cast doubt on the insinuation that he meant to shoot and kill a random passerby he had no connection with. Involuntary Manslaughter would have had a lesser punishment but at least he would have had that charge stick. I'm blaming the prosecutors on this one for going for a life sentence when there's no way in Hell that was ever going to fly. Like, was that done on purpose to LOSE the case? Of course only the illegal possession charge stuck. ESPECIALLY when the cops coerced a false confession.

They should not have even had 2DM on the table. You don't hand the jury two packets of McDonald's BBQ sauce and say "But one of them is poison. Now choose one."

Even worse, the fudging gun was a Fed's firearm. Who are we angry with here, exactly? Because I'm livid at US.

Well, except for the part where they made a provision for athletes to get tested like crazy and go in as independents under the name "Olympic Athlete from Russia." They have to wear an Olympic rings uniform, not a Russian one, and if they medal, the Olympic flag and anthem is used. Basically, it's a way to let certain athletes like the figure skaters still go, as there haven't been any figure skaters implicated in doping. I'm sure other sports might get some people in this way too.

The Russians might choose to boycott and not let any athletes do this though, if they're pissed off enough about the banhammer. Putin had already threatened as much.

A group called "Exit International" has developed an assisted suicide machine that will let people take their own lives in what they say is a peaceful and painless way. Basically, it's a capsule that you sit/lie in, hit a button, and it puts you to sleep with nitrogen and takes away oxygen. You fall asleep and then die in about 5 minutes.

In a word.....no.

A little googling found this:

http://www.khou.com/news/local/verify/verify-is-tr...

Basically, the only times there were this kind of turnover are when a President has just been re-elected, and people are deciding to stay or not, or scandals like Iran-Contra. The article goes back to Carter, and none of the other Presidents lost more than one senior staffer in the first year. They had to go back to John Tyler to find significant turnover in the first year, and that was because Tyler had inherited William Henry Harrison's cabinet, and they were not getting along.

I find the lack of news disturbing.

Al Franken is resigning and going out with a bang.

In his remarks, Franken noted what he called "the irony" -- that he is stepping down, "while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assaults sits in the Oval Office, and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party."

Also, GE announces its cutting 12,000 jobs in it's power division. Mainly due to "a decline in business for coal and natural gas products."

And finally, after Trumps commitments to battle veteran homelessness, his administration decided to cut a $480 million dollar program that battled veran homelessness (MAGA). Thankfully, people power took over, and the outcry was so loud the decision to remove/move the funds was changed.

In the case of the fires in the west, some of them are directly attributable to people. Some of the ones earlier this year were directly traced to idiots setting off fireworks, or other cases of people maliciously starting fires, for example. No one person can cause a hurricane or tornado, but they sure as hell can start a fire.

"Talentless chicken" I jacked from Ralph Garman. It's an in-joke on a podcast. I don't hate her, but her show and comedy blows. (My wife dislikes her too @Karaiya) She's hacky at best. And her show's getting canceled.

As far as being talented to have a TV show/success in Hollywood, I submit all the Kardashians, every person appearing on MTV the last decade, Rob Schneider. You get my point.

Who exactly did Franken Sexually assault? Or Moore for that matter?

Franken was guilty of making bad jokes and having poor taste,

Moore, the only evidence of any sort of misconduct was the yearbook and the accuser later admitted that she faked the yearbook.

Here is how we will know for sure if the Moore accusers are for real: if they make police complaints and take their case to trial, now that the election is over, the accusations were likely fake and only made for political reasons.

What exactly did Franken do that would be considered unethical or illegal? I saw the photo with his hands above a sleeping woman's chest, but he wasn't actually touching her, just being goofy/stupid.

The Moore accusations, there was zero evidence of any wrongdoing as far as I can tell?

Who did he grope though? I'm honestly curious, because right now all there was on Franken were some unfounded accusations which he denied?

From what I can tell, he denied all of it, and there isn't any evidence of any sort of sexual misconduct, that is he said/she said and not really proof of anything. Other democrats put pressure on him to resign because of accusations(that were from what I can tell, totally unproven, but just that, accusations).

That really isn't any different from Moore, is it?

He announced his resignation about a week ago, December 7th, his replacement is Tina Smith, apparently it's already a done deal.

Right, his hands aren't touching her at all, his hands are above her breasts and he is looking goofy/dorky. If he never actually touched her, how is that groping? Pretend groping to try to be funny now= sexual assault? I'll dig up the photo, but I could have swore it's in the other thread about famous men accused of sex misconduct.

edit, here just google image seach for "al franken groping photo"

image

It looks like he has his hands above her and isn't actually making physical contact. How is that groping? It's not very funny and he looks like a total dumbass, but sexual assault? seriously?

He was definitely on the roll call today. I don't think he's actually resigned. If the Gov. named a replacement, it's an if and when situation at this point.

Paul Ryan bowing out? Possible mutiny afoot?
