Slot Machine Addict & Republican Crook Notes U.S. Men Are Failures

News

Bloated GOP gambling addict William Bennett makes his millions in many ways, such as his storied tenure on the board of somesketchy "online charter school" that siphons taxpayer money from real public schools. (It was started by Goldman Sachs executives and convicted felon Michael Milken, of course. Bennett "resigned" from the K12 board after an unusually straightforward series of crazed racist ranting about his desire to kill all black children on his own wingnut talk radio program, but there was never a claim that he divested from the corporation.) He also poops out unwanted books now and then, which is one of the more bizarre parts of the American media economy, and is also paid money by CNN both for appearing on its endless, unwatched jabbering panelists programs and also for providing shitty excerpts from his latest book as "web content." And still, with such a gravy train, this is a person who could only find fulfillment by punching lighted buttons on slot machines like a senile old lady with her oxygen tank parked next to her ashtray. What conservative trope has Bennett dug up and crapped out in book form this time? Oh something about how when "we" (conservative men) weren't looking, the womens went and stole "our" prestige and jobs and whatever.


What unpaid intern was forced to type up this garbage?

For the first time in history, women are better educated, more ambitious and arguably more successful than men. Now, society has rightly celebrated the ascension of one sex. We said, "You go girl," and they went. We celebrate the ascension of women but what will we do about what appears to be the very real decline of the other sex?

The data does not bode well for men. In 1970, men earned 60% of all college degrees. In 1980, the figure fell to 50%, by 2006 it was 43%. Women now surpass men in college degrees by almost three to two. Women's earnings grew 44% in real dollars from 1970 to 2007, compared with 6% growth for men.

You go girl. As Orwell wrote, Hell is William Bennett sitting on your face forever, saying "You go girl."

Anyway, this idiotic CNN blog post is full of exciting pre-2008 data, so it's kind of "nostalgic" the way men were only at 20% unemployment before the economic collapse. (The number is 45% today.) Women ought get back in the kitchen or whatever! And cook up a nice plate of air, since the vast majority of households have been unable to feed families on a single income for three decades now ... you know, since the time when bloated gambling-addicted scam-artist William Bennett was in the White House, under Reagan.

The Associated Press finally called the race in California's 48th Congressional District late Saturday for Democratic challenger Harley Rouda, bringing an end to nearly 30 years in Congress for US Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. Over the years, Rohrabacher had represented not only his super-conservative Orange County district, but also the Taliban and Russia, and as his district has become more liberal -- or at least less frothingly rightwing John Birch Society-esque -- it was probably only a matter of time until his seat went blue. Rohrabacher's enthusiastic defenses of Donald Trump and of Vladimir Putin only hastened the swing this year. Too bad, so sad!

Let us bid a fond but not drawn out farewell to one of Congress's more spectacular idiots while we hope he's joined by many others, soon.

HOLY WEEKEND NEWS DUMPS! While Donald Trump was across the ocean getting dunked on by Emmanuel Macron and skipping ceremonies for war heroes because he was scared his shithole hair would get messed up, journalists kept digging into the life and times of Trump's fake acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker, and DAMN. All's we know is that the Deep State must fuckin' HAAAAAAAAATE that guy, whose appointment was probably completely illegal and unconstitutional in the first place so why are we even talking about this.

We already knew bits and pieces about Matt Whitaker's scammy scummy fraud-y old gig, on the advisory board of a scammy scummy fraud-y company called World Patent Marketing, that did some MILD FRAUDS. When customers got mad, Whitaker would write them mean threatening letters. (You should read about how they "scammed US military veterans out of their life savings," as The Guardian puts it. Happy Veterans Day!)

What we didn't know -- and what one of the victims and also some other unknown people (deep state!) were more than happy to tell the Wall Street Journal -- is that FUCKIN' COMPANY IS UNDER FBI INVESTIGATION. And Whitaker was on the advisory board! And he made videos for the company! And he sent those mean threatening letters! What we're saying is that Whitaker is in deep.
