Can we all agree that slashing $7.1 billion from education is asinine?

Of all of the hair-brained, short-sighted budget proposal ideas, removing billions of dollars from education takes the cake. If there’s anything that people of all political persuasions should be able to agree on, it’s the importance of education. A well-educated citizenry is the chassis that supports everything we need to keep moving forward—a thriving economy, safer communities, advances in science and technology, strong international standing, and more. And as the top-performing educational systems in the world prove, a well-funded, equitable, government-funded school system is the most reliable engine humans have designed to keep the machine of civilized society running. However, the 2020 budget proposal coming from the White House includes cutting $7.1 billion from the Department of Education. On the …

Senate GOP effort on Trump border wall seems to fall short

After a closed-door lunch, GOP lawmakers predicted the Senate would approve a resolution Thursday annulling the emergency Trump has declared along the border. The Democratic-led House passed the legislation last month, meaning Senate assent would send it to Trump. “It was called turn out the lights, the party’s over,” said Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., recalling a favorite refrain of “Monday Night Football” announcers when a game was out of reach. “Well, that’s appropriate right now.” Republicans hoped Trump would support a separate measure curbing a president’s powers to declare future emergencies. Had he done so, they thought, it would be easier for reluctant GOP senators to support the emergency Trump has proclaimed to steer $3.6 billion more than Congress has …

The King Of The Surf Guitar Has Died

Dale, whose work included the 1962 hit “Misirlou” that was featured in the film “Pulp Fiction,” died on Saturday night.

He said he also liked to inspire people who might be having a tough time. Dale said his fans …

Peter Pugh, 75, was walking home through Titchwell Marshes when the tide came in. He said he attempted to swim to the next field, but was blocked by dense reed beds. Twenty-two hours after he went missing, a police drone recorded footage of Mr Pugh. He was up to his armpits in water.

Kentucky just passed a major abortion ban. Here’s how that could affect you.

Kentucky Legislature just became one more in a growing line of states to pass a strict abortion ban. Last night, the Kentucky state House passed a bill that would ban abortions after six weeks, otherwise known as a “heartbeat bill.” What that means is any medical practitioner offering abortions would first have to check for a heartbeat, and if one is detected, they would not be legally allowed to perform an abortion. As of now, there are only a few exceptions to the ban, for example, if the mother’s life is in danger, but if someone is seeking an abortion because of a fetal diagnosis, the ban would stand. The bill has now been sent to the Republican Governor Matt …

Leave Britney Spears alone… because she is doing well more than 10 years after her highly-publicized breakdown.

Bernie Sanders Tests An Updated Pitch In Once-Hostile Territory

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. ― When Sen. (I-Vt.) traveled to South Carolina for the first time as a 2020 presidential candidate on Thursday,  in the state’s Democratic presidential primary three years earlier seemed like a distant memory. Mounting the stage in the gymnasium of a Baptist church to the Doobie Brothers’ “Taking It To The Streets,” Sanders received the kind of fawning reception to which he has become accustomed in larger and more liberal American cities. The crowd, 1,600 strong, according to Sanders’ campaign, welcomed him with chants of “Ber-nie” and roars of support that initially made it hard for him to complete his sentences. “Thank you for being part of a campaign which is not only going to win the …
