    Trump says he will be a "big loser" if the GOP tax plan is passed. That is not true. He would save many millions of dollars in taxes. The tax plan benefits banks, big corporations and the wealthiest Americans. Among the middle class, as many as 36% of Americans could be paying higher taxes. If we're fortunate, the tax plan will fail the same way all the GOP healthcare plans failed.

    Lawsuit lunacy has reached a new high. Or is it "low"?

    Jury awards $7.5 million to man who says he was injured buying watermelons at Walmart
    FOX News, Nov 9 2017

    An Alabama jury on Wednesday awarded $7.5 million to a man who sued Walmart after he said he broke his hip buying watermelon at a store in Phenix City. Henry Walker, who was 59 at the time, claimed that on June 25, 2015, his foot became trapped in a pallet beneath a stack of watermelons while he reached for one. Walmart has maintained that the display was not dangerous and that any negligence was Walker's fault. "We are disappointed in the verdict," a Walmart spokesman said. "We appreciate the jury's service, however we believe that the damages awarded were excessive in light of the facts in this case. We plan to appeal." Walmart continues to uses the same displays for watermelon despite the incident.

    Headline on the cover of the latest issue of the National Enquirer: "Where ISIS will strike next. 147 sleeper cells in US -- are you safe? Blood-chilling hit list inside."

    I'm wondering how the Enquirer obtained this information.......and did they notify the Department of Homeland Security?

    Mike Pence's NFL stunt cost police department $14,000
    HuffPost US, Nov 14 2017 2:42 PM

    A planned political stunt by Vice President Mike Pence, in which he walked out of an NFL game in protest of players kneeling during the national anthem, cost the Indiana Metropolitan Police Department more than $14,000. During an October game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers, Pence made a show to leave the stadium after he saw players kneel for The Star-Spangled Banner, later tweeting that he "will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag or our National Anthem.”

    Many believed Pence leaving the stadium was a premeditated stunt orchestrated by the White House, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars. That belief was confirmed when President Donald Trump tweeted that he had told Pence to leave once players knelt. Documents obtained by Citizens For Responsibility & Ethics In Washington show the IMPD spent an additional $14,163 in security costs for the vice president. The police department spending included multiple teams on the force working traffic and security, as well as overtime costs.

    "The tone is set at the top when it comes to this administration’s disregard for ethics,” CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder said. "Vice President Pence should know better than to use taxpayer money to make a rhetorical point, but carelessness with taxpayer money seems to be a common theme with senior administration officials."

    Well, nobody saw this coming:

    Cards Against Humanity buys piece of the US border so Trump can't build his wall
    Mashable, Nov 14 2017 3:17 PM

    The dirty and sometimes downright offensive game Cards Against Humanity is back with another stunt and this time they're taking aim at one of President Donald Trump's campaign promises. The company has announced its holiday promotion, Cards Against Humanity Saves America. Essentially, the company purchased a plot of vacant land on the border of the United States and Mexico, making it extremely difficult for Trump to build his expensive border wall which the U.S. taxpayers will inevitably pay for.

    "Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid that he wants to build a $20 billion wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing," the website reads. "So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built." For $15, Cards will send you "six surprises" in the month of December, including an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of promise to fight the wall, and some new cards.

    ISIS-linked propaganda poster threatens Christmas attack on the Vatican
    RT, Nov 16 2017

    An Islamic State-linked group has allegedly vowed to launch a Christmas terrorist attack on the Vatican. A propaganda poster depicted a jihadist driving a car at high speed towards St. Peter’s Basilica. The menacing poster was released by the pro-Islamic State group known as Wafa Media Foundation. The image shows a masked jihadist driving at high speed towards St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, where Pope Francis usually celebrates Mass. An assault rifle and a rucksack are clearly visible on the seat next to the driver, who is using a satellite navigation system.

    The threat from IS terrorists has tended to heighten at Christmas time. In 2016, an IS sympathizer deliberately drove a truck into the Christmas market in Berlin, leaving 12 people dead and dozens injured. The perpetrator, Anis Amri, turned out to be a rejected asylum seeker from Tunisia. He was killed days later in a shootout with police near Milan.
