    I heard the tail end of that report on NPR last night and didn’t catch the airline name. Shit, I was going to book my flight today on American. Small hometown airport, limited airlines service the airport. Maybe I’ll be driving this year....

    Anyone following the gay wedding cake situation? Shit is fascinating. Way more going on than I thought based on the shit media coverage.

    There was no refusal to sell a cake. It was refusal to decorate in a specific way... which is art... which is speech. It's on par with asking a muslim baker to decorate a cake with the face of Mohammad.

    I'm sure most folk are sick of all the Donald Trump talk, well the New York Times ran a couple of interesting articles today...

    Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program
    https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/12/1...arry-reid.html

    2 Navy Airmen and an Object That ‘Accelerated Like Nothing I’ve Ever Seen’

    Apparently the study of UFOS was in our military budget.

    How was it asked to be decorated? How is that different from most weddings where the bride wants the cake to look a certain way? Why has this not been mentioned by a single person until you and now?

    This man is starting to become a threat to Vladimir Putin enough of a threat to take note of, if something big becomes of this in Russia the chain reaction could be immense globally, he has galvanized a huge amount of people, may cause big waves next year. could expect massive protests if this man is not allowed to run.
    To be honest I don't know why Putin has not done more to 'sort him out' already.
    but don't expect Putin to leave without a fight if it does become intolerable for him, problem is that fight could be very violent. Putin knows he will end up with a rope around his neck like Saddam Hussein or Muammar Gadaffi if he loses power and people find out how much money he has stolen from the Russian public.

    I just hope this new guy stays alive and do what needs to be done. Then we can get rid of the asshole at the White House.

    Holy shit, Hawaii just got an actual missile threat warning on the news and on their phones.

    Confirmed that it was an error, but the videos showing what was on TV when it hit are fucking terrifying: https://twitter.com/bubbaprog/status/952246857933221888

    I heard about New California. What the fuck? This is just getting really stupid. Plus, let's not forget that California originally belonged to the Mexicans who lost the land in the Mexican-American War in 1848 and were paid off $15 million which would be $150 trillion or more these days.

    My little brother was in high school a LONG time ago, he has a grandchild now (and is back in the Detroit area).

    I was watching the news coverage, really horrible video from inside the school during the shooting omg.

    The kid arrested for this is a former student who had a collection of weapons that he was parading on Instagram?

    I always thought that if he was going to find trouble, it would be due to being such a hardliner jackass. Corruption is a whole other level of surprise.

    God, that brings back some bad memories. 10 years ago today was the shooting at NIU. I remember coming out of class that day, looking around the campus seeing everyone on their phones and just being confused as hell. Then someone told me what happened, and my heart sank.

    17 people dead and several are wounded. All on Valentine's Day and for some goddamn reason, it's making me think of the song David Bowie did a few years ago which was about a kid shooting people at a high school. That's just fucked up. I don't think that was what Bowie intended the song to be as it was more of a response to gun control.
