One would hope that elected officials would at least have the tools to write a coherent sentence or two explaining why they should be elected to represent the people. Apparently, one’s hopes would be dashed, as one Imgur user found out by looking through the Official California Voter Info Guide that has the list of nominees for US Senate.
Each candidate got to write a paragraph about themselves and, after reading the whole thing, the user concluded that most of these people “shouldn’t be trusted with scissors, yet alone a Senate position.”
To prove his point, he got out the old red pen and did a little grading himself.
Taking a Closer Look at the Failings of Our Criminal Justice System
President Obama made a visit to a federal correction center recently to highlight the shortcomings of our criminal justice system, and on his heels cable channel A&E has launched a show called 60 Days In, which takes regular, law-abiding citizens into the custody of a prison for two months. If it sounds like a dangerous proposition…it is. They’re putting their lives and health at stake by doing this.
It sounds like a terrible fate, but they’re doing it for a reason. Take a look:
In an awesome video that ends with President Obama dropping the invisible mic in his hand, the POTUS and Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda teamed up for a freestyle on Monday.
In case you’re unaware, Hamilton is an impossible ticket to get, unless you’re the President and the cast performs several hits from the Broadway show in the East Room. And for an encore? They took it out back for a little freestyle rap…
Raffi Freedman-Gurspan has officially been appointed as the White House's primary LGBT Liaison by President Barack Obama making her the first transgender person to have this role bestowed upon them.
This is a big win for the LGBT community, and leaders within that community have nodded their heads in approval of the announcement.
“Raffi is a great choice,” said Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality. “President Obama has said he wants his administration to look like America, and they have moved to include trans Americans. Raffi’s skills and personality make her the exact right person for this important job.”
Raffi Freedman-Gurspan has already broken ground bybeing the first transgender White House staff member, having been appointed in 2015 as the outreach and recruitment director of the presidential personnel office. She has now become the main point of contact in office for the LGBT community.
You can’t go anywhere these days without seeing some kind of political sign, so much so that they all blend together after awhile. That is, unless you were in Collinsville, Illinois this week.
Someone took a unique angle to get their point across that they didn’t exactly agree with Bernie Sanders and what his political policies entail as far as they understand them.
We’re nonpartisan here, but we ran this by our team and everyone — Sanders supporters and others — all agreed: It doesn’t matter if you’re for Sanders, against Sanders, or indifferent, this is pretty dang clever…
Considering how weird the 2016 Presidential campaigns have already been, the fact that someone decided to imagine all the candidates with beards really isn’t that strange. What is strange are the results.
Joshua Steimle, CEO and founder of MWI, a digital marketing company, was coming up with marketing ideas for a client and decided that he wanted to know what the 2016 Presidential candidates would look like with beards. So he went ahead and created them himself for all the candidates…all of them.
In other words, he found a way to make this election even scarier than it already is.
