Fuck yeah, @RepDebDingell

You go, Rep. Dingell (you know shit got real when you elicit this type of response from Rep. Dingell).

Chef Jose Andres: This was sent to me by our @WCKitchen team in Navajo Nation this morning!


Sending 2020 out the door with a big FUCK YOU:

This Agency's End-of-2020 PSA Wins Prize for Most F-Bombs Ever

OK, who wants to say a big FU! to 2020 and kick this miserable year out the door?

That would be the entire human race.

Of course, Toronto agency Public couldn't fit all 7.8 billion of the planet's inhabitants in this profoundly profane (and NSFW) 90-second spot, designed to drive donations to the Mental Health Coalition and the Black Health Alliance. Still, dozens of folks show up, flipping the bird and dropping F-bombs to let 2020 know exactly how they feel:


FUCK YOU to the tiny fingered, Cheeto-faced, ferret wearing shitgibbon.

An unusual note in tomorrow's daily guidance from the White House


Trump issues 26 new pardons, including ones for Stone, Manafort and Charles Kushner

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening announced 26 new pardons, including ones for longtime ally Roger Stone, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner's father, Charles.

The pardons of Manafort and Stone reward two of the most high-profile and widely condemned former advisers of the President, both of whom were indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller, went to trial and were convicted by juries of multiple crimes.

Manafort, who is serving home confinement, initially agreed to cooperate with Mueller then lied to prosecutors, while Stone never cooperated after lying to Congress to protect the President. Manafort spent close to two years in prison for bank and tax fraud, illegal foreign lobbying and witness tampering conspiracies before being released because of the Covid-19 pandemic, while Stone's sentence for obstruction of Congress and threatening a witness was commuted by Trump earlier this year days before he was set to surrender.

Charles Kushner, meanwhile, had been prosecuted by then-US Attorney for New Jersey Chris Christie in the early 2000s for tax evasion, witness tampering and illegal campaign contributions.

Trump Administration to Begin Departing White House in Two Weeks, Email Says

Source: Newsweek

The Trump administration will begin departing the White House within two weeks, despite the president's insistence that he lost the election because of widespread voter fraud and ongoing efforts by his Republican allies to overturn the results in key battleground states.

In a video message posted to social media on Tuesday evening, President Donald Trump attacked the economic relief bill passed in Congress this week and suggested that "maybe" the next administration "will be me." The president also met on Monday with Republican lawmakers planning to object to the electoral votes of several states won by Joe Biden when Congress convenes January 6 to formally count the votes. But internally, the White House is preparing for the administration's departure.

White House staff received an email from the president's executive office on Tuesday evening instructing them to begin cleaning out their desks and boxing up office supplies with their departure, starting on January 4, CBS News correspondent Weijia Jiang reported via Twitter on Wednesday morning. The email includes lists of things that need to be done, such as "cleaning out your refrigerator and microwave," "returning Presidential gifts to room 1" and "taking home personal items."

"Employees will receive a comprehensive checklist in the coming days. As an initial step, please take inventory of your office and understand you are responsible for the following," the email says, going on to list tasks that need to be completed.

Wow, ok, Pres Trump is asking Congress to come back and amend the COVID relief/Omnibus spending bill:

"I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000, or $4,000 for a couple," he says.

Millennials own less than 5% of all U.S. wealth

Despite making up the largest portion of the workforce, millennials controlled just 4.6% of U.S. wealth through the first half of 2020, according to data from the Federal Reserve.

Baby boomers control over 53% of the country's wealth, while Gen X accounts for just over 25% and the silent generation holds around 17%, according to the Fed's data, which breaks down U.S. wealth in the beginning of 2020 by age, class and race.

While it's not abnormal for older generations to be wealthier than younger generations they have had longer to earn money and accumulate assets, after all the Fed's data also shows that millennials have far less wealth than boomers did at the same age.

In 1989, when baby boomers were around the same age as millennials are today, they controlled 21% of the nation's wealth. That's almost five times as much as what millennials own today.

Many previous reports have found that millennials are, on average, worse off financially than their parents and grandparents were at the same age, despite being better educated.
