Man Creates Very Honest Tinder Profile

This post was originally published on this site This guy isn’t trying to trick anyone, and we appreciate that. Look, there are a whole bunch of reasons why the world is terrible right now. Our president is embroiled in scandal after scandal. Terrorism and gun violence dominate the news. The American health care system hangs in the balance. But you know what? Sometimes you need to just distract yourself from the awful. You need to stare directly into the viral content machine for something amusing and silly and life-affirming. This is one of those times. Meet Dustin. He’s 21, he’s on Tinder, and he’s trying to find love. He owns a truck. But let’s be real, he’s not going to be trying all that hard. “Well I’m a fat fuck with a big truck. If we can’t get a big greasy burger then we won’t work. I’m 21 years old … Read more

You'll Never Guess Who the Republican Health Care Bill Actually Helps

This post was originally published on this site It’s the Republican way. After weeks of treating their health care bill like they were JJ Abrams and it was the latest mystery box macguffin, Mitch McConnell and the Senate republicans have finally revealed their plans. To say the Better Care Reconciliation Act, as the Senate is calling their version of the AHCA (ironically I presume?), is trash does a disservice to trash. It’s the weird trash juice that leaks out of the bag as you carry it down to the curb even though you’re sure that you didn’t throw out any liquids. We’re still waiting on the official CBO score, but as it’s not all that different from the House bill we can pretty safely assume that millions and millions of Americans will lose coverage if this is shoved through in an undemocratic process until it becomes law. And the changes … Read more

Donald Trump Is Still Holding Campaign Rallies Because No One Else Will Validate Him

This post was originally published on this site (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images) Things have gotten pretty pathetic. Last night, Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Iowa, where he said a bunch of dumbass Donald Trump things. He ranted about the Paris Agreement, saying “Like hell it’s nonbinding!” (Not only is the Paris Agreement nonbinding, but Trump himself said so during his announcement withdrawing us from said agreement.) For what felt like the millionth time he said that, the U.S. is the highest taxed nation. (We’re not even close. Depending on how you measure it, we’re one of the lowest taxed nations or in the middle of the pack. Decidedly not at the top.) He also said that he wasn’t even there campaigning and the crowd was huge. (The event was put together and advertised by his campaign committee.) None of these statements (or, you know, lies) are surprising … Read more

The Senate Republicans Super Secret Health Care Bill Looks Awfully Familiar

This post was originally published on this site Alex Wong Where have we seen this before… For weeks now a group of Senate Republicans have been treating their health care bill like the queen in a game of three-card monte. They’ve been hiding it, drafting it in secret, keeping it from even many of their fellow Republicans. Why? Well, because otherwise someone might find out what’s in it. We couldn’t have that! And though we still don’t know all the details of what’s in it, reports are beginning to trickle out. And just like three-card monte, it looks like a lot of people are going to end up getting screwed. So first thing’s first, according to the Washington Post, this bill looks to be pretty damn similar to the one in the House. You know, that insanely unpopular bill that last polled at a whopping 35 percent approval rating that … Read more
