Winning friends and influencing people...



Remember 2012??

When Sanders screamed for weeks and weeks about Obama not having a primary challenger because he said in so many words that even a popular incumbent not having some kind of party challenge was antithetical to democracy?

Using the same rationale, WHY hasn't he demanded a primary challenge for Trump?? Asking for a friend.

Sanders doubles down on Rogan


This isn't going to end well for them. The sooner these amateurs drop out of the race, the better...

So... Are we even going to have a conversation about WHY

Bernie Sanders has gotten so much enthusiastic support from the far right this week? Nobody finds this the least bit suspicious? Everybody just assumes the GOP is playing on the level and has no ulterior motives whatsoever?

What the hell, Yang supporters??

For 20 years, a Tennessee baby thief kidnapped more than 5,000 children...

No one knows or perhaps cares to remember the exact day the Tennessee Children's Home Society in Memphis closed. What is known is that 69 years ago, in late November or early December, the place workers later called "a house of horrors" closed its doors for good.

Shutting the Children's Home Society down may have cast it into obscurity, but by then the home had already permanently changed the lives of more than 5,000 children. The unimaginable horror of the place still reverberates today not because many of the children were orphaned or abused but because they were stolen.

The little-known story caught the attention of fiction author Lisa Wingate when she saw a late-night episode of "Deadly Women" on the Discovery Channel about the children's home matriarch, Georgia Tann.

"I wondered if it was all true or was sensationalized for TV," Wingate told Insider. "So I started digging. I had to know more." The result was "Before We Were Yours," a fictional account of the orphanage told through the eyes of 12-year-old Rill Foss. Released in 2017, the book stayed on top of best-seller lists for over a year.

"People would write or email and say, 'This book is about my mother' or 'I think I might be one of the stolen babies,'" Wingate said.
