Louisiana Just Printing Out Wikipedia Pages, Calling It History

News

From Wonkette operative Lisa B.:


A friend and I decided to get the hell out of the freezing mass of Minnesota and take a roadtrip south. We just returned to our sleeping quarters from a day out in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We checked out the state capitol building, and noticed that next to the statue of their first governor, there is a pedestal with his biography pasted on it for reading pleasure. The biography is literally just two pages printed directly from Wikipedia, with the URL and everything at the bottom. Worse, it was printed in 2009, so it's been there long enough for someone important to have noticed it. We would feel bad for the seeming lack of access to reputable sources, but we don't because we keep seeing the Confederate flag everywhere.

Might somebody who works for the government of Louisiana have some access to verified information about their first governor? Apparently not. Yeah, just tape that Wikipedia page up next to the statue! That works! Looks pretty classy-like!

Tough week for Suzanne Israel Tufts, the nice Trump campaign lady with no experience doing investigations who was almost appointed to oversee, or at least overlook, the Interior Department's four ongoing investigations into Ryan Zinke's "ethics," for want of a better word. Not only did she not get that nice job as acting inspector general after the media got hold of the story and everyone said it stank to high heaven, but Tufts, who had been employed at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, suddenly up and quit that job too late Friday. Pour out a 40 (gallon barrel of industrial waste, into a poor community's water source) for her, won't you?

Once again, the Trump administration is coming after birth control. Specifically, they are looking to issue rules that would roll back the Affordable Care Act mandate that requires that most employers provide insurance that covers it, which would leave god knows how many women across the country without access. The administration had previously attempted to eliminate this mandate last year, but said attempt was blocked by two federal judges on the grounds that doing so would cause "serious and irreparable harm."

But now they're trying again, because forcing people to have unwanted children just seems like a really fantastic time to them, I guess. If these rules manage to get passed, and if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade as it is expected to, the Right will soon be closer than ever to the future filled with barefoot and pregnant women making them sandwiches that they have always dreamed of. For the rest of us, it will be a pretty shitty time.
