Hysterical Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for July 6th - Amazon's sales are news & Socialism is mainstream?
Bottom Line: Your daily doses of nonsense in the media and my takes on them...
Hot Take: How is this news? Is it news if Wal-Mart or Target does the same thing? Are we openly rooting against small businesses now or just front-running that which some in media prefer the most? Here's an idea. Rather than patronizing Amazon now-through the 16th - how about making a concerted effort to patronize small businesses in your neighborhood when possible instead? The last thing Amazon needs is free advertising under the guise of news. What most small, local businesses need the most is that very thing.

Hot Take: But Joe Manchin should stay a Democrat, right? Because West Virgina's values lineup real well with Brox-style socialism? Let alone, North Dakota, Indiana, Montana, Missouri-etc. Political desperation seems to have replaced any dose of political reality.
The Democrats Are Not In Disarray Michael Tomasky, The Daily Beast
Hot Take: So, Socialism is the new message of the Democratic Party? Got it.
Now You See the Brutality of ICE, Help Us Abolish It Linda Sarsour, Newsweek
Hot Take: So just to be clear. Being critical of FBI agents who say they can "smell Trump voters in a Wal-Mart" and that they'll stop Donald Trump from being President is "attacking law enforcement" but alleging that 20,000 government employees working within the Department of Homeland Security across 46 countries are engaged in systematic abuse isn't?
