Billionaire Peter Thiel Funding Effort to Resurrect Woolly Mammoth

Billionaire Peter Thiel Funding Effort to Resurrect Woolly Mammoth:  Silicon Valley titan and Trump supporter Peter Thiel, has reportedly invested $100,000 in a project which hopes to bring the extinct mammoth back to life.  Makes sense.  After all, the Trump administration is trying to escort us all back to the Middle Ages, so why stop there?  May as well head right on back to the ice age while we’re at it.  Sharpen your stone tools and I’ll get a fire…

Poll Shows US Losing World’s Respect Under Trump

Poll Shows US Losing World’s Respect Under Trump:  According to a wide-ranging international study, with the exception of Russia, Donald Trump’s presidency is alarming citizens of our nation’s closest allies as well as others worldwide, diminishing the US standing in the world.  Can’t for the life of me understand why.

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Hire Surrogate

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Hire Surrogate:  Kim Kardashian is claiming she has a condition called “placenta accreta,” which makes it dangerous for her to carry another child, so she and Kanye have now hired a surrogate to carry their third child.  If I’m correct, I believe “placenta accreta" is Italian for “why should I go through another nine months of carrying a kid when I can just pay someone to do it for me?”…
