The f*cking stupid continues to thrive.

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) signed a new law Saturday mandating that many large retail stores offer some toys in gender-neutral sections, a move advocates encourages children to consider toys without taking into account gender stereotypes.

“This bill would require a retail department store that is physically located in California that has a total of 500 or more employees across all California retail department store locations that sells childcare items or toys to maintain a gender neutral section or area, to be labeled at the discretion of the retailer, in which a reasonable selection of the items and toys for children that it sells shall be displayed, regardless of whether they have been traditionally marketed for either girls or for boys,” reads the law.


You wanted this shit California. I feel for you Morons there.

Enjoy It While You Can: Dropping Oxygen Will Eventually Suffocate Most Life on Earth

For now, life is flourishing on our oxygen-rich planet, but Earth wasn't always that way – and scientists have predicted that, in the future, the atmosphere will revert back to one that's rich in methane and low in oxygen.

What utter Bull Shit.

Hopefully he get's his counseling behind bars.

GoFundMe has removed the fundraising page of the Texas student who opened fire at Arlington high school and wounded four students after his family set it up requesting $25,000 to treat his alleged “trauma” over his father’s death.

Two of the shooting victims are still in the hospital while 18-year-old Timothy Simpkins was allowed to walk free on bond.

The GoFundMe page was launched Thursday by Dallas attorney Kim T. Cole, who asked the public to donate money to help Simpkins, according to the Daily Mail

Judge rules against natural immunity claim challenging COVID-19 shot mandate

A federal judge denied a request to block an employer’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate on the basis of natural immunity on Friday.

Jeanna Norris, who works at Michigan State University, challenged the school’s vaccine requirement on the basis that she had COVID-19 and recovered. After having two antibody tests showing her immunity, her doctor instructed her not to get the vaccine at this time.

Yet, she faces termination for not complying with Michigan State University’s requirement that all staff and students get vaccinated by Aug. 31 unless they have a religious or medical exemption.

Ahh, the good old Taliban. When they aren't pushing opiates they are running rehab centers.

Harrowing images show drug users in Afghanistan being rounded up and put in chains in the latest sign the Taliban are grossly violating human rights.

The men – many of them homeless and addicted to heroin and meth – were beaten and forcibly taken to treatment centres in Kabul.

There, they were forced to sit against a stone wall with their hands tied, before being stripped of their clothes and having their heads shaved.

Many of them looked bleary eyed and skeletal as they were ushered into a prison-like camp where they were told to sober up or face a beating.

OK, I dabble with paints, brushes and canvas. I won't get rich at it, as my last name isn't Biden.

President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, sold at least five prints of his artwork for $75,000 each, according to a report from the New York Post.

The pieces of art were reportedly sold by the Georges Berges Gallery before a "pop up" presentation in Los Angeles on Oct. 1.

"It's unclear who purchased the reproductions — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden's scandal-scarred son — or if any more were sold after the LA show opened," the New York Post reported.

"But most of those allowed to buy works are long-term, private collectors with the gallery," a source familiar with the sale told the outlet.

Prints? Not even the original? Nothing fishy here, move along little peasants and starving artists.

It would have been easy to accept a forfeit. No, and that leads us to Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Lily Roberts is a pitcher for the Adairsville JV Softball Team. The team they were playing against a couple of weeks ago was about to lose when their pitcher got sick.

"They were struggling and I knew if I didn't step up, the game would have to end and they would have to forfeit. So I just thought, I would love to step up," Roberts told 11 Alive.

So that's exactly what she did. Roberts stepped right up to the mound and pitched for the opposing team.

And she wasn't lobbing easy balls over the plate against her teammates, she was firing them across home plate for strikes.

"She would smile at them and throw them a strike," Coach Kelly Abernathy said. "She was pitching like she was pitching in a championship game."
