    WASHINGTON - Rising prices have erased U.S. workers' meager wage gains, the latest sign strong economic growth has not translated into greater prosperity for most middle- and working-class Americans.

    Please tell me again how this is a tax cut that helps the middle class? Come on more propaganda!

    Over 300 priests in Pennsylvania accused of sexually abusing over 1,000 children. Covered up by the Catholic Church.

    Multistate Outbreak of Cyclosporiasis Linked to Fresh Express Salad Mix Sold at McDonald’s Restaurants — United States, 2018







    https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/cyclos...318/index.html


    Fresh Express reported to FDA that the carrots in the mix went to McDonald’s restaurant locations only, and that the romaine lettuce was the only ingredient in the mix that was distributed to other locations. Romaine lettuce from the same lot that was positive for Cyclospora was distributed in pre-made salads and wraps distributed by Caito Foods LLC of
    Indianapolis, IN. Fresh Express also reported that no romaine lettuce from the lot that was
    positive for Cyclospora was packaged for direct retail sale to consumers.



    .
    Important advice for consumers:
    If you purchased one of these pre-made salads or wraps, and have not yet eaten it, do not eat it.
    Throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.

    If you have eaten one of these pre-made salads or wraps and you developed diarrhea, see a healthcare provider to be tested for Cyclospora infection and to be treated if you are sick

    Every single thing that comes out of this administration is a lie. Let's blame environmentalists and not the QAnon guy they actually arrested for arson last week.

    Zinke blames 'environmental terrorist groups' for scale of California wildfires

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is blaming "environmental terrorist" groups for the deadly forest fires ripping through California.

    Zinke, who visited neighborhoods ravaged by the state's largest wildfire ever over the weekend and on Monday, said environmentalists and green regulations in California made the fires much worse.

    "We have been held hostage by these environmental terrorist groups that have not allowed public access — that have refused to allow [the] harvest of timber,” Zinke told Brietbart radio over the weekend.

    SI: There's a rumor that at WrestleMania, it's going to be Roman Reings vs. The Rock. When you hear that, what's the first thing that pops into your head?
    SR: I’d like it to be Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins.

    SI: What about Seth Rollins vs. The Rock?
    SR: That’s cool, too. Don’t get me wrong. I love Rocky. I think he’s great. Love everything he’s done for this business. But my gut, my first instinct, says we don’t need him. We don't need him. If we’re not the guys who can main event WrestleMania, then how are we ever gonna be The Rock? How are we gonna be Stone Cold Steve Austin? We can’t hold onto these guys forever. We just can’t. To me, let’s do Seth Rollins-Roman Reigns before we do Seth Rollins-The Rock. That's me.


    SI: But do you see how it's good for business to bring in that Rock audience or do you not care?
    SR: I see that perspective 100 percent. I get it. There’s nothing wrong with growing, getting bigger and putting more eyes on your product. I totally understand that. I get it. But at some point, we gotta move on from that.

    Add another layer to the legal drama surrounding the Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple — and took his case all the way to the Supreme Court.

    Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colo., on Tuesday filed another federal lawsuit against the state alleging religious discrimination.

    This time, the cake at the center of the controversy was not for a wedding. In June 2017, Colorado lawyer Autumn Scardina called Masterpiece Cakeshop to request a custom cake that was blue on the outside and pink on the inside.

    The occasion, Scardina told the bakery’s employees, was to celebrate her birthday, as well as the seventh anniversary of the day she had come out as transgender.

    Masterpiece Cakeshop ultimately refused Scardina’s order on religious grounds.

    “Phillips declined to create the cake with the blue-and-pink design because it would have celebrated messages contrary to his religious belief that sex — the status of being male or female — is given by God, is biologically determined, is not determined by perceptions or feelings, and cannot be chosen or changed,” the complaint stated.

    More than a year later, on June 28, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruled that there was probable cause that Phillips had discriminated against Scardina on the basis of gender identity.

    In refusing to make a cake for the transgender woman, Phillips had “denied her equal enjoyment of a place of public accommodation,” Aubrey Elenis, director of the Colorado Civil Rights Division, wrote in her ruling.

    TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Let me ask you real quick? Why does nobody-- I totally get that and I actually hate litter which is one of the reasons I'm so against illegal immigration. It produces a huge amount of litter. Huge amount of litter. And I mean that with total sincerity.

    I know who he meant. But, if you go to a baker who you KNOW will refuse to do what you have in mind (whether you agree with his rationale or not), who's the attention whore? I'd contend it's NOT the baker.

    I don't know if it would have been obvious that pink-blue symbolism would have offended his religious sensibilities.

    In any case, I wouldn't describe either one as an attention whore, but the actions of both are probably aimed specifically at setting up the next test case.. The Masterpiece decision really did nothing to resolve the basic issues, so both sides are going to want to go back to court.

    The debate over Donald Trump’s alleged n-word tape, explained

    While this debate largely focuses on the president, it is not just about him and his alleged use of a racial slur. On a broader scale, this is a debate about the definition of racism, and the ways that racism gets framed as the shameful behavior of individuals rather than systemic inequities created to maintain power.

    That Trump allegedly saying the n-word is positioned as eye-opening proof of his racism is part of a larger issue that continues to paint racism as solely being about bad words and deeds rather than policy and white supremacy.
