Trending Politics is up first with a disturbing story. SICK: Christian American Arrested For Reading Bible At Pennsylvania ‘Pride’ Event

Damon Atkins, a Christian, was arrested this past weekend during a ‘Pride‘ event in Reading, Pennsylvania, for reading the Bible aloud, causing significant controversy over First Amendment rights.

The Other McCain is up next with a history lesson: D-Day: ‘The Blessing of Almighty God’

The U.S. forces in Operation Overlord did not keep a day-by-day casualty count — which would have been an impossible task, given the circumstances — but research indicates “there were about 1,465 American deaths, 3,184 wounded, [and] 1,928 missing” on D-Day itself.

And The Other McCain is up again with Death by ‘Mommy Makeover’? A post that wins the contest for the most Latin phrases in a composition outside of Classics Studies class. (Or a law school!)

It would be an incorrect assumption — committing the fallacy of post hoc ergo propter hoc — to suggest that Jacky Oh’s death was caused by whatever surgical “rejuvenation” she underwent in Miami. Also, you might get sued for libel for making such a suggestion.

That Trump was the most pro-Israeli president we have had in ages and that half his family is Jewish, does not count. Repeat after me, Trump is Hitler.

Daily Signal - Southern Poverty Law Center Adds Parental Rights Groups to ‘Hate Map’

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which brands mainstream conservative and Christian organizations as “hate groups,” placing them on a map with chapters of the Ku Klux Klan, added a slew of parental rights organizations to that “hate map” for 2022 and labeled them “antigovernment groups.”

Ambient Irony - Daily Tech News 8 June 2023: Working Nine To The Other Five Edition

It's not the nine-to-five (well, eight-to-six) that gets me, it's the wakeup call at one and the working until nine again.

Got hit by a botnet at work and, well, Docker is complete and utter shit the moment anything unexpected happens.

Again from The Other McCain - Cue the ‘Paw Patrol’ Theme Again

The laughingstock of the cable news industry is once again the butt of the joke, as CNN fires their CEO Chris Licht after just a year:

Smitty at TOM - BREAKING: Trump Indicted. Haven't heard a peep out of Smitty in some time. He has images of social media posts from Trump. Click thru.

The Other McCain again - I’ll Take ‘Symptomatic Evidence of Demonic Possession’ for $400, Alex
