End of Week Open Thread

Portland, OR is now the country's Capital of Leftist Tantrum-Riots.

The left keeps finding new ways to shock you. Except they're the same old ways, always:


Trump's now calling for Repeal first, Replace later:


Which makes tactical sense. With no Obamacare in place, Democrats would be pretty much forced to vote for something, or else they'd take the blame for having "no health care" in the country (and I realize how dumb that sounds, but that's the language they use).

If you like heavy metal, and even if you don't, you may find this Pentagram-shaped taxonomy of Dumb Heavy Metal Band Names amusing. CAUTION: Contains names of bands which are not heavy metal.

If that link doesn't work, try this one.


Trump may be beginning the process of rolling back the Title IX Secret Rape Courts.

Chris Matthews suggests that Trump would do well to imitate Mussolini and murder his son-in-law.

Nice media you have there, colonel. Be a shame if somethin' were to 'appen to it.

Oh too bad -- something did 'appen to it. The New York Times has begun laying off copy-editors, and they're -- get this -- protesting it.

Using words including “betrayal,” “humiliating” and “covfefe” and suggesting that management had compared them to “dogs urinating on fire hydrants,” copy editors at the New York Times today let executive editor Dean Baquet and his heir apparent, Joseph Kahn, know exactly how they feel about taking the brunt of layoffs and buyouts as the Times expands its reporting ranks. The latest flare-up comes at a moment when the Times also is dealing with a libel lawsuit filed by former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin over a Times Op-Ed column erroneously linking her to violent attacks on public figures.

So sad -- just some insufficiently skilled workers who have been passed by our dynamic Global Economy, angry about their inability to compete. Maybe they should just learn IT.

Judges in the EU, who are all-knowing and all-powerful, have decided that it is better than an infant should be killed than risk a chance of a trip to the US to see if an experimental cure can help him.

The parents want to take him to the US for the treatment; the courts told them that their opinion doesn't matter, and that he should die.

Charlie’s parents have raised enough money from private donations to fund the experimental treatment, but the court decision prohibits his removal to the U.S. Whenever they see fit to do so, the doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital can now remove Charlie’s life support.

Or, as the Washington Post prefers to say:


Sometimes democracy dies in euphemism, too, huh?

If you're expecting the Vatican to protest this, well, Francis has some nuanced positions on matters of life now, it seems.

And, if you forget everything else this week, just remember-- CNN has had a month long nightmare and it's glorious.
