Seen this morning on Facebook: Of course Donald Trump backed out of the debate...

History has shown chickens should be wary of men named Sanders.

A follow up to that delightful video of the Mom with the Chewbacca mask

in Videos and Multimedia yesterday.

That video has had more than a million hits already. A company just can't buy that kind of good PR. So they responded.

Enjoy (video at the link)

Google introduces the self driving bike... Great for toddlers who want to

go for a spin, but whose legs are not long enough to reach the pedals!

I noticed that I hadn't seen any posts from Beam Me Up Scottie

in a while, so I checked. Her last post was April 18, nearly a month ago.

Does anyone know if she is okay?

From the Thom Hartman Community Blog: RT America and Young Turks Blocked from Hulu


RT America and Young Turks Blocked from Hulu

As a senior with limited funds, I stopped cable and learned to rely on alternate forms of information and entertainment. I opted, among other things, to subscribe to Hulu. It not only streams many MSM shows the day after broadcast, it has also streamed many alternate, and progressive shows such as The Big Picture, Redacted Tonight, and The Young Turks. All of that came to an end late March. I contacted Hulu and was told that it was official, but with no explanation.

ON EDIT: I somehow missed the paragraph regarding the speculation that Hillary was behind the blackout... I certainly have no reason to believe that is so and don't endorse it. I posted it because I thought it was interesting that Hulu had stopped broadcasting TYT... No conspiracy theory from me.

I urge everyone who is perturbed by this further blackout to email Hulu at support.hulu.com. Freedom of speech has never been more important than now. The rep I spoke with encouraged everyone to send an email questioning this action and requesting it be reversed. If we aren't covered by MSM, and are also blocked by alternate media, we have nowhere to turn.
