The good news is that Trump's attempt to bring back dirty energy won't do it. The bad news is that it delays progress toward a cleaner future.
The Executive Order is a very different beast from the health care bill the Republicans just failed to pass, but it does have a few things in common: It expresses no coherent governing philosophy, it is an answer to no obvious problem, and moves policy in a direction that is wildly unpopular. The difference is that Trump doesn’t need Congress to do this, so he just did it. #Trump #ClimateChange #USPolitics

Apparently "Throwing your hat" was an actual medieval defensive technique taught in fencing schools.

I seem to have finished both our taxes and my mother's before April. This calls for a drink.

Oh. Right. Been there. Did that. That's how I managed to finish them.

You know those things that go by about ten times so you finally watch them? This little girl who thought a broken water heater was a robot is one of them. OMG cute!

Burned Your Tweet replies to Trump’s tweets with a video of a Rube Goldberg-like machine printing out a page containing his tweet, grabbing it, lighting it on fire, and dropping it in an ashtray. It’s an impressive display of both DIY robotics and trolling. View it in action:

Since 2007, the report found, the DEA has seized more than $4 billion in cash from people suspected of involvement with the drug trade. But 81 percent of those seizures, totaling $3.2 billion, were conducted administratively, meaning no civil or criminal charges were brought against the owners of the cash and no judicial review of the seizures ever occurred.

The scope of asset forfeiture is staggering. Since 2007 the Department of Justice's Asset Forfeiture Fund, which collects proceeds from seized cash and other property, has ballooned to $28 billion. In 2014 alone authorities seized $5 billion in cash and property from people -- greater than the value of all documented losses to burglary that year.
