""Australia does not exist. All things you call 'proof' are actually well fabricated lies and documents made by the leading governments of the world," she says.

"Your Australian friends? They're all actors and computer generated personas, part of the plot to trick the world."

Reception to her message has been negative, with furious Australians battling to convince her that they are, in fact, real."--NEWSHUB 03/23/2017

"The Oxford comma—or rather, the lack of one—helped decide a Maine court case over overtime pay for dairy workers earlier this week.

Also known as the serial comma, the Oxford comma is used before a conjunction like “and” or “or” in a series of three or more items. (For example: “I’m going to buy some eggs, milk, and bread.”) Critics feel it’s clunky and superfluous, while diehard supporters believe it’s absolutely essential for clarity. (For what it’s worth, Boston magazine’s official style uses the Oxford comma.)

Delivery drivers for Oakhurst Dairy won their suit against the Portland milk and cream company, after a U.S. court of appeals found that the wording of Maine’s overtime rules were written ambiguously. Per state law, the following activities are not eligible for overtime pay:

The canning, processing, preserving,
freezing, drying, marketing, storing,
packing for shipment or distribution of:
(1) Agricultural produce;
(2) Meat and fish products; and
(3) Perishable foods.

Oakhurst argued that “distribution of” was separate from “packing for shipment,” which would allow the company to claim exemption from paying its delivery drivers over time. In trying to prove lawmakers’ intent, Oakhurst even pointed to Maine’s legislative style guide, which advises against using the Oxford comma.

“For want of a comma, we have this case,” U.S. appeals judge David J. Barron wrote."--Kyle Scott Clauss Boston Daily 03/15/2017

The Des Moines Register lambasts King and his party that both denounces and continues to support him for reelection:

"If Steve King was your average, garden-variety bigot and was standing on a street corner while spouting his nonsense to passersby, he’d be easy to ignore. Everyone could dismiss his rants as undeserving of their attention and get on with their day.

Unfortunately, King has a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. He’s a federal lawmaker. He’s on the public payroll. When he speaks, he represents — literally and figuratively — the people of Iowa.

So when he says things that are untrue, offensive or wildly irresponsible, attention must be paid. Responsible people have to step up and attempt to set the record straight or demonstrate that not everyone in Iowa, or in Congress, shares King’s distorted view of the world.
______

If King’s world view truly doesn’t match that of the Republican Party, then party leaders at both the state and national level need to stand together in supporting an opposing candidate in the 2018 Republican primary. Given King’s longstanding record as one of the least effective members of Congress, the GOP should have no difficulty finding a more thoughtful and qualified individual to represent the people of Iowa’s 4th District.

The only question is whether these party leaders have the courage of their alleged convictions."--The Des Moines Register's Editorial 03/13/2017

Whoopi Goldberg said a #FakeNews story threatened her safety and hurt her relationship with Vets, while author of the story 'soley for profit' dismisses Goldberg's complaint.

"Goldberg called the story a “horrible lie” that impacted her relationships with vets and their families. She said the story also had endangered the lives of her family and herself.

“I’m going to get my lawyer and I’m coming for you,” Goldberg threatened, saying the site’s disclaimer, which says it produces stories “not based in reality” is insufficient.

An ABC spokesman told the Associated Press Goldberg never said Owens “was just looking for attention” as the Underground Report story claimed.

James McDaniel, a professional hoaxer for the Underground Report, said in a post Tuesday on the site he doubts Goldberg or her family faced any real danger.

“Few people who didn’t already harbor negative feelings towards Goldberg believed the story, and how many people believe that such comments would lead an otherwise harmless person [at least to Goldberg] over the edge and push them to violence or murder,” he wrote.

“Many many false stories circulate about Goldberg, as they do with all celebrities of her caliber, why was I singled out. Was it the sheer size of the story, or the fact that I happen to be the one person who came out and revealed their identity after the nine day stint, which a person who was writing fake news solely for profit would never do.”"--Marcy Kreiter Raw Story 03/14/2017

"During spring break, Canadian families used to pile the kids into a tour bus and head to New York to see the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center and other attractions. It was the start of the busy season for Comfort Tour, a Toronto-based firm that usually brought between 200 and 300 tourists to New York in March.

This year, 11 people have signed up for the tours.

“Even white, Anglo-Saxon people, who are most of our customers, they are afraid of crossing the border,” lamented Al Qanun, manager and part-owner of the travel agency.

“They don’t want to end up in some prison.”

It is not just visitors from the countries targeted by the bans that are souring on U.S. travel; the seven countries included in Trump’s original order in January account for 0.1% of incoming travelers. Rather, an atmosphere of fear at the nation’s airports — and well-publicized incidents of visitors being detained and interrogated — are scaring off people without the slightest connection to the Muslim world.

“Think twice about visiting America if you don’t want the ‘Mem Fox’ treatment,’’ read a recent headline in the letters column of the Australian magazine Traveller, referring to the children’s book author who swore she would never return to the United States after being questioned at Los Angeles International Airport on her way to a literary conference.

The Toronto Star newspaper in late January published a commentary calling on Canadians to forgo unnecessary trips to the U.S. until Trump is out of office."--Barbara Demick LA Times 03/12/2017

In checking the Trump twitter archive, he has not tweeted since March 8th?!

My safari browser shows where the tweets come from, Chrome I know does not. Iphone tweets are staff, and android tweets are directly his. The iphone tweets have none of the swagger and anger too. If your browser does not show this at the end of the line, you may put "android" in search window at top to show only those tweets too.

So it's been days???

It could be he's with adults, and tomorrow morning when alone in the bathroom he'll let it all out again?
