March for Science Chicago: Some of the Best Signs (PHOTOS)

march for science chicago the muppets

While the Women’s March in January and the Tax March last weekend had more than their fair share of clever signs, March for Science Chicago blew both of them away. The signage here was beyond brilliant. I guess that’s to be expected when you hold a rally that advocates reason, logic and critical thinking.

On this, the 47th edition of Earth Day, Saturday April 22nd, March for Science Chicago was held, sending a strong message  to our leaders in Washington D.C.

An estimated 4o,00 attended the event, which began with a speaker’s program at 10-11 am, then a march to the Field Museum of Natural History. There, an exposition was held until 3 pm, all in the name of supporting of science.

Aaron Hernandez Dead from Apparent Suicide; Twitter Users Make Really Bad Jokes

aaron-hernandez-patriots

Aaron Hernandez was an awful human being; there’s really no disputing that.

Anyone who deliberately takes another person’s life is truly beyond the pale of description. Repugnant, deplorable, immoral, monstrous, disgusting….choose your words but at the end of the day these are still just words and they can never truly articulate the atrocity that is intentionally taking another human being’s life from them.

Tax March Chicago: Highlights, Signs, Sounds, Photos and Videos

tax march chicago trump putin

Most people never bought into the “only reporters care about my tax returns” fallacy that Donald Trump loves to espouse. It is and always has been a flimsy excuse, but for the small subset of America that thinks he could be right…they were proven dead wrong today!

In our nation’s capital, 25,000 people alone marched for the cause of getting Trump to show his taxes. Tax March Chicago was one of over 200 marches and rallies held in cities today across not just the United States of America, but the entire world.

ESPN 30 for 30: Top 20 of All Time List

Rating the best films in the ESPN 30 for 30 series is a highly debatable endeavor, as there are so many great documentaries to choose from. Click the title where highlighted for a review/feature on that specific film.

A year ago, I would have told you that there’s Hillsborough, the college football docs, and then there’s everything else. Still true, except now there’s Laettner, which towers above everything else.

Chelsea Owner, Putin Confidant Roman Abramovich was in Colorado Same Day as Jared Kushner

With Donald J. Trump and Vladimir Putin we have seen endless coincidences and collaboration. However, we have not seen evidence of definitive collusion. “The smoking gun,” as one would proverbially put it, hasn’t been found yet. However, the United States Senate is investigating whether or not Russia/Putin colluded with the Trump campaign to alter the outcome of the 2016 United States Presidential election.

As of now, the committee’s investigation has been saying that it’s too early to know whether the two parties colluded or not.

Tomi Lahren Dismissal from TheBlaze Could Be an Example of “Failing Upwards”

tomi-lahren

While many rejoiced over news of TheBlaze network firing polarizing hostess Tomi Lahren, the schadenfreude could be both short-lived and premature. There’s so much conflicting information on this topic right now that it’s still TBD how exactly Tomi Lahren will leave the Glenn Beck run operation, and whether or not this results in a blessing-in-disguise for the polarizing and extremist talking head hate-monger.

Neither camp: Tomi Lahren and her representation, or TheBlaze, are responding to requests for comment right now.

It’s all leading to ramped up speculation, and when it’s all said and done, this might be a boon for the career of Lahren. Sadly, the Blaze may have just been holding her back

Manchester United’s Previous League Cup Win Had a Donald Trump Connection

donald-trump

Donald Trump is the 45th President of these United States of America, like it or not. This is reality despite his losing the popular vote by 2.8 million and receiving votes from just 27% of the eligible American electorate. As painful as it is to say, he is the man who is currently in the world’s most powerful position and as such has influence in places that you would never imagine.

Take for instance the League Cup of English football. With the EFL Cup Final set to kickoff on Sunday, and Manchester United vying with Southampton for the trophy, the Manchester Evening News unearthed this gem from the last time United won the title.

Donald Trump vs Chicago: Five Reasons POTUS Incessantly Attacks the Windy City

trump_tower

Donald J. Trump vs Chicago is a consistent feud that won’t be going away any time soon. The 45th President of the United States of America consistently makes the city of Chicago his punching bag, and there are several reasons for this.

Trump has publicly slammed Chicago at least nine times since his inauguration.

While Chicago does indeed have a very serious problem with violent crime, it is far from the hellscape dystopia Trump makes it out to be. More than a dozen American cities have a higher per capita murder rate than Chicago.

Former Man United Star Denied Travel to U.S. Over Iranian Visa Issue

dwight yorke

On Saturday January 28th, massive protests erupted at airports all across the United States. It was a response to the most extremely controversial and inherently discriminatory executive order that President Donald Trump has signed. The E.O. commonly known as the “Muslim Ban” temporarily barred entry into the U.S. citizens from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Later, a federal court in Seattle overturned the order. Trump’s representatives stated in court documents that they will not appeal the the ruling in a higher court and will instead replace the “travel ban” with a new, modified one. However, given the current political climate surrounding immigration issues, and Trump’s ultra-authoritarian and stubborn ruling style, more turmoil is expected.

So even while the ban is still currently on hiatus, former Man United star Dwight Yorke was denied entry into the United States, simply because his passport had an Iranian stamp on it.

Hundreds Moon Chicago’s Trump Tower, Urging POTUS to Release Taxes (VIDEOS)

trump_tower

The event’s tagline said it all: “Kiss Our Asses, Release Your Taxes!”

And that’s exactly what hundreds of woke Americans did at 4pm local time across the river from Trump Tower in Chicago. While this form of protest doesn’t exactly gel with the progressive philosophy of “when they go low, we go high,” it does equate to a level that can be understood by President Donald J. Trump.

Going high brow hasn’t exactly gotten through to him, so perhaps going low brow will?

Liverpool FC Banned The Sun From All Club Premises, Events

hillsborough

Liverpool Football Club have long had a very contentious relationship with The Sun, due to the publication’s failed coverage of the Hillsborough Disaster. Infamous “THE TRUTH” headlines from The Sun are some of the most egregious examples of victim blaming that occurred in the wake of the 1989 tragedy that claimed the lives of 96 Liverpool supporters.

Recent inquests into the disaster revealed that the fans were illegally killed due to negligence by the authorities, and that this negligence was covered up. Much of the initial public opinion was slanted against the fans who lost their lives, and much of that lies at the hands of The Sun.
