Wednesday Reads: You know that I’m no good.Posted: February 24, 2016
Last night Trump took down Nevada.
That makes “tree” in a row for the man who feels it is “Presidential” to show disrespect by swinging his dick around…and busting balls at some other wiseguy’s party.
Donald Trump crashed the Nevada caucus location at which conservative talk show host Glenn Beck was speaking Tuesday night on behalf of Ted Cruz.
MSNBC was broadcasting a live look at the caucus site, Palo Verde High School in Summerlin, when Trump suddenly showed up and made an impromptu speech of his own.
“We are going to have hopefully a historic night,” Trump said. “I appreciate everybody being here. I wanted to be here myself and say a few words.”
Geez, talk about yuuge ballz. It is like some kind of set-up reality show smack-down, right?
At what point will this all just stop. It is so embarrassing.
That is all I’ve got to say on that. If you want more info on the Nevada results:
Now on with the other stories for today. The images you see are from illustrations during the 60’s and 70’s, with many from Milton Glaser. I found them on Pinterest.
First up, some links on the cooch…well, links that somewhat relate to the cooch.
Remember that report about what has happened to women’s reproductive health in Texas after they defunded Planned Parenthood? Check this out: Texas Official Forced Out After Peer-Reviewed Study Critiques GOP’s Contraceptive Policy
A Texas official is being forced to retire due to pressure from Republican legislators who took exception to a study he co-authored. The study found GOP efforts to exclude Planned Parenthood from the state’s family planning programs had a detrimental effect on access to reproductive health care.
Rick Allgeyer, director of research at the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, was one of five co-authors of a study that found widespread negative consequences for contraceptive users after Republicans in 2013 banned Planned Parenthood from the Texas family planning program.
The study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, found that after Planned Parenthood affiliates were excluded from the Texas Medicaid program beginning in 2013, delivery of the most effective reversible methods of contraception, including IUDs, implants, and injectable contraception, declined.
There was a substantial reduction, for example, in use of injectable contraception among patients reliant on this method of birth control and a 27 percent increase in births covered by Medicaid.
“It’s one thing for an agency to provide data upon request. It’s quite another to be listed as a ‘co-author’ on a deeply flawed and highly political report,” Nelson said. “I’ve communicated strong concerns to the agency. This should not have happened, and we need to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
Nelson wrote a letter to Chris Traylor, executive commissioner of the Health and Human Services Commission, requesting that the commission review the study. “While I appreciate efforts to shine light on policy challenges, it is important for that information to paint an accurate picture,” Nelson wrote.
“Critical evaluation is essential to good government,” Nelson continued. “But women should not be misled into thinking the services they need are not available to them. Those services are readily available, and Texas women need to know that.”
Nelson has a long history of supporting policies that choke off access to reproductive health care, and Nelson has defended these policies againstmounting evidence that they have had a detrimental impact on women’s health in the state.
Bryan Black, spokesperson for the state health commission, told the Texas Tribune that Allgeyer violated the agency’s policy for working part-time outside of the agency, without explicit permission.
“Rick Allgeyer is eligible for retirement and has decided to retire from the Health and Human Services Commission,” Black said in an email. “His retirement is effective March 31.”
And so it goes. The bullies of the GOP in action. Doesn’t this behavior fit in with the squirrel topped coiffure bully we talked about up top?
Continuing the coochie theme:
Because, and I will again use a clip from the film Idiocracy…
…the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.
Yup. As you can see. It all goes back to the asshole with the swinging dick…oh, I should say the bald asshole with the swinging dick.
Now this next link takes this cooch theme to a whole new meaning. Literally. This is some fucked up shit. More parents want ‘vaginal seeding’ for their newborns. But it might not be safe. – The Washington Post
I can’t bear to quote from this article. Here is a Wonkette version of the trend if you want to read a different take on the subject:
Other links with a cooch flavor:
Give this op/ed a full read, I love this bit:
…there are lots of people, male and female, who simply by virtue of seeing a female name on a resume presume the applicant is less competent and less qualified. Many Americans hear a female voice and read into it shrillness or anger. Many more interpret female anger as frightening or unprofessional and penalize women for it. Male anger, meanwhile, is seen as authoritative and commanding.
All those assumptions work against Clinton, just as they work against every woman in America. The way we change them is by stripping out associations between maleness and power, maleness and competence, maleness and influence. That doesn’t happen in one day of corporate diversity training. It happens by normalizing female power, female competence and female influence — including having women in charge, especially in the highest political office in the country.
Okay, the rest of today’s links…I want to get this posted…
Keep Smiling-Via The Paris Review
For the origins of the selfie, look to the dandy.
Archaeologists may have unearthed the remains of a woman whose execution had a lasting impact on the writer Thomas Hardy, inspiring the fate of one of his most beloved creations – Tess of the d’Urbervilles.
THEY called her “the Lady of the Heather”, and she was rumoured to be the illegitimate granddaughter of Bonnie Prince Charlie.
If she was, she could hardly have come further from Scotland. For the place she called home was at the very edge of civilisation, if not over it: the now uninhabited Campbell Island, 450 miles south of New Zealand.
And our last link…
This is a dam in Italy.
See those little dots?
Can you see it now?
Yeah, fucking goats!!!!!
Have a good and safe day…This is an open thread.
