NY Dems screw Republicans hard in new congressional map.


Dave Wasserman
Unlike Dems' Illinois gerrymander, which was thrown together pretty sloppily at the last minute, I can only find a few isolated places where this NY gerrymander "strands" Dem votes in GOP districts - and even then, we're talking fractions of points.

It's a brutal map for Rs.

'I will die free': Unvaccinated Burke County man denied kidney transplant by hospital

BURKE COUNTY, N.C. — A Burke County man’s decision not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine means he also won’t be getting a much-needed kidney transplant.

Chad Carswell, a double amputee who has undergone several major surgeries on his heart, now faces a different battle. Carswell told Channel 9′s Dave Faherty his kidney is only operating at about 4%.

Dialysis three times a week keeps him going, but the solution is temporary.

“Without (a kidney transplant) there’s no telling how much longer I’ll be here, I have to have a kidney to prolong my life,” he said.


Missouri School District Bans Toni Morrison's 'The Bluest Eye'

A Missouri school district joins a growing list of districts across the country to ban books highlighting issues of race, sexuality, and the Holocaust.

In a 4-3 vote, the Wentzville School Board voted to ban the late Toni Morrison's first published book, "The Bluest Eye," which details the experiences of a young Black girl living in the wake of The Great Depression.

"By all means, go buy the book for your child," Wentzville school board member Sandy Garber said during the meeting, according to original reporting from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I would not want this book in the school for anyone else to see."

"The Bluest Eye" follows Pecola, who yearns for blue eyes and equates whiteness to beauty while she believes her Blackness automatically makes her ugly. The book touches on many themes, including rape, incest, domestic violence, alcoholism, infant mortality, and racism. It also includes profanity — at one point, a character's mother calls him a "nasty little Black bitch."

Morrison, the award-winning author of the book who died in 2019 at the age of 88, had argued against banning books prior to her passing. In response to past attempts to ban "Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain for its use of the "n-word," Morrison wrote that banning books is the "purist and yet elementary kind of censorship designed to appease adults rather than educate children."

Candace Owens comes out as moon landing denier.


Candace Owens
Now for some light-hearted fun. What’s the one “conspiracy theory” that no matter what anyone says you believe is true. Mine is that the moon landing in 1969 was completely faked.
Just nothing about it makes sense. Especially NASA “accidentally erasing” the original footage.
