Lest we forget, it’s still 2017 and the world is still both figuratively and literally on fire. That tiny kerplunk sound you hear is Paul Ryan’s raging hard-on

17 Work, Money, And Life Lessons I Learned In 2017
Axel Holen Many people stop reading books as soon as they graduate school. Don’t be one of them. My 9-5 job involves a lot of heavy reading, but I still make time to read outside of work. I mostly fit this in by reading on the subway to and from work, as well as setting aside 30 to 60 minutes before bed. I enjoy reading anything from crime fiction to political theory. 2. Control your money before it controls

Sessions’ DOJ Charged A White Supremacist With Terrorism. They Just Didn’t Tell Anyone.
The Justice Department didn’t do any of that when federal prosecutors unsealed terrorism charges last week against Taylor Michael Wilson. The 26-year-old white supremacist from St. Charles, Missouri, allegedly breached a secure area of an Amtrak train on Oct. 22 while armed with a gun and plenty of backup ammunition. He set off the emergency brake, sending passengers lunging as the train cars went “completely black.” As passengers waited in dark train cars that smelled of burning rubber, Amtrak workers kept the man pinned

Bush and as an intelligence officer under Barack Obama, stayed in her job as a director in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. But by June, she couldn’t do it anymore.

10 Best Holiday TV Episodes To Give You All The Festive Feels
Nothing says it's the holiday season quite like cuddling up on the couch and binge-watching TV. It's too cold to go outside anyway, right? I know that there are a ton of movies themed around the holiday season that you can watch, but honestly, sometimes you just want to relive the magic of a classic, special holiday episode of a great TV show. Plus, it's much easier to binge through a bunch of festive TV episodes than movies anyway.

Married People Are Happier Overall, Science Says, But Also, Can Science Not?
Maybe it's because I'm a product of divorce, maybe it's because I'm only in my first real relationship at the age of 24, or maybe it's because I feel like I'm constantly hearing stories about people "settling," but I've always tended to be wary of people who claim being married makes you a happier person overall. That being said, a recent study calls everything I was pretty confident about into question, by claiming that being married makes you happier

Parents Demand Surrogate to Abort After Baby Is Diagnosed With Heart DefectHer Refusal Is a Victory for Pro-Life
ShareTweet Surrogacy is not for the faint of heart. While carrying another woman’s child who can not conceive is certainly a noble act, it is not one that comes without emotional repercussions.

Narcissists Dont Always Suffer From Low Self-Esteem  Malignant Ones Are Just Entitled

We coddle even the most abusive narcissists in our society by perpetuating this myth that all narcissists just have self-esteem issues – and the underlying implication that they just need to be cradled and positively affirmed back to a more empathic place. But
