God bless the internet and all its wonderful treasures. This 2001 commercial from Holiday Inn Express was frighteningly prophetic. Hilarious, but prophetic. The ad shows a completely inept science team dealing with an Ebola sample, but you can feel safe because they stayed at Holiday Inn Express and are therefore, smart.

Houston’s summer was marred by a battle over religious liberties and overreaching government.

Sparring over a city ordinance that would force businesses, among other things, to allow transgendered clientele the use of opposite sex restrooms or risk discrimination suits, Bayou City area clergy and the government aren’t exactly on the best of terms.

Senator Harry Reid is known for his rants against the “1%” and evil Republican moneyed types. Never mind that Reid stays in the Ritz Carlton when he’s in D.C. or that he’s worth over 6 million bucks, of course.

As if the situation in Ferguson, Missouri wasn’t bad enough, Code Pink has decided to join the riots and protests.

Code Pink infamously dressed as vaginas and paraded around the RNC in 2012. They also protested the maker of my favorite body wash, Ahava, (made in Israel), because it contains “occupied mud.”
