Link round-up for 20 January 2019

Various interesting stuff I ran across on the net over the last week.

o o o o o

Tengrain shows us the latest in men's fashion.

Tremble in fear of Hell (found via Scottie).

Sounds like people in West Virginia have been watching Mononoke-Hime while on drugs (found via Mendip).

Some manage to have fun with dress codes.

Give back teh kitteh.

The first one of these is actually pretty deep.

Everybody get out of their way.

Check out these cats in zero gravity.

Debra She Who Seeks goes full unicorn.  Then there's this person.

Donna at Tell Me a Story needs more than one language's profanity to express her feelings about Trump and his gang.

That's not mold, but it has taken over.

Jesus commanded, he obeyed.

Sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander.

"Once upon a time....."

Tumblr is still full of shit.

Evangelicals seem confused about how "faith" works.

Why can't this be real and Trump be just a movie?

The mission of #Jagärhär is to fight trolling and make the internet less nasty.  It's gonna be a big job.

I can't believe advertisers still haven't figured this out.

No wonder Republicans live in fear of Democrats taking over.

A new godawful Christian movie wallows in the usual misconceptions about atheism.

Wingnuts just can't be happy unless they find something to be outraged about.

Here are some online forums for atheists.

If you see a person in a wheelchair being pushed by someone else, and they show signs of distress, don't ignore it.

Understand anti-Semitism.

These people exist.

US Christians' trust in their clergy is at an all-time low.

Fresh out of Catholic school, it's the Twitler YouthUpdate:  Apparently there's more to this incident than first reports told us.

Here's one reason why Republicans are fighting state legalization of marijuana (found via Scottie).

Easily-triggered macho flakes freak out over a Gillette ad.  Well, there's this.

Religion undermines progress and freedom (found via a comment by Maryplumbago here).

Atheist blogger Anderson Connors just moved from Texas to the Portland area.  His first impressions sound interesting.

Religious conversion is remarkably similar to another process.

Like Heidi Heitkamp on Kavanaugh, Doug Jones does the right thing despite the risk to his re-election.

The Word of God cannot be trusted.

TV news has screwed-up priorities.

For fundies, lying poses problems.

Sounds like Assange is going nutzoid; good please-steal-this-book story at the beginning.

Trump is a fake populist, Ocasio-Cortez is a real one.  59% of voters support her 70% top tax bracket.  And she drives the fundies crazy (well, crazier than they already are).

In some parts of the US, schools are hotbeds of Christian harassment.

It's not just a shutdown, it's an attempted hijacking.  If politicians won't end it, maybe TSA employees can.

Will global-warming denialists listen to the US military?

A major goal of modern medical research is an Alzheimer's vaccine -- and we may finally be making progress.

The UK is divided over Brexit, but strongly united on one point; and at least one EU country is preparing for a Brexit without an agreement (both found via Chris Sterry).

Maternal death rates have plummeted in most advanced countries, but there's one big exception.

The Catholic Church in India behaves pretty much the same as it does everywhere else.

China's economy is in deep crisis, but its most serious weakness is in education.

Zimbabwe is in trouble.

Trump is losing ground with his base.  We can make inroads with real solutions to their real problems.

Some Republicans still live in the Dark Ages.

Stacey Abrams isn't going away.

Both-siderist baloney is rearing its head in the media again.

The rising generations want more activist government.

Impeachment might be worth doing, even if the Senate won't convict.  But for some of Trump's actions, there can be no justice short of speedy removal.

Shower Cap reviews burgergate and the shutdown battle, and has a song for Steve King.

[731 days down, 731 days to go until the inauguration of a real President -- yes, we've made it to the halfway point!]

If the people of West Virginia are really concerned about white monsters terrorizing their State, they might try staying out of the woods and looking in the mirror.

Thank you for the roundup. I especially enjoyed the dress code and sauce for the goose links.

I was browsing through these yesterday, tried to avoid as much of Trump as possible (sorry) ... I'm just to a point where I'm so sick of seeing his scams/ deals or tweets on the news daily, and his recent offer to Dems on the Wall, is nothing but a crock of shit too ... SAD.

Oh yeah, there has been all kinds of talk and insults over AOC (Alex Cortez) too, even a couple Dems don't like her, Republicans think she is the anti- christ probably ... they even insult her for doing what many young folks/ kids like doing ... DANCING ... it is sickening. I myself like Cortez alot.

I couldn't help but to leave a comment on Anderson Connors blog, as far as his move to PDX, and his views of it and comparison with Texas.

I personally feel that folks in wheelchairs should arm themselves ... but I know many folks would disagree with me.

Latest men's fashion was pretty cool, see they are getting back to bold colours, reminds me of the 80's once again. I don't think though, it would look god on me {:-)

Debra: Thanks for the post!

Green: Well, there is that.....

Sam: Thanks.

Ranch: I understand. Trump has been in power two years now and I'm getting pretty sick of hearing about him too.

Republicans always seem to need someone as a bogey-(wo)man. AOC seems to freak them out because she's outspokenly radical.

If the colors on that outfit were any bolder, they'd be assault and battery. :-)

Your round-ups are always so much fun! Of course, any time there are kitty posts, they are favourites :)

Glad you find them interesting.....I guess it's true what they say about the internet being primarily a vehicle for cat pictures. :-)
