Useless Idiots

Stories about people who are useless to society.

Trump’s Appointments

So far it’s looking like a mix of good and bad.   His national security adviser, Retired Gen. Michael Flynn, isn’t too bad, but the AG (Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions) and CIA Director (Republican congressman Mike Pompeo of Kansas) suck. I think Flynn’s wiki page has been edited to make him look as bad as…

Dr. Peter Attia: Hack, Liar and All Round Disgusting Individual

  Apparently Peter and his buddy Gary Taubes just love themselves some crappy pseudoscience. Both of them are funded by the Arnold Foundation, with substantial ties to animal agriculture industry lobbying.  Marion Nestle notes the Arnold’s working relationship with a National Restaurant Association and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association consultant. So let’s go over the bogus arguments in this…

UFC Fight: Why Nate Diaz Beat Champion Conor McGregor

What a great Saturday night! I setup my giant 120″ projector screen in my friend’s yard and we invited a pile of people over to watch the Diaz v.

In a recent Chicago Tribune article, Roger Pilon, the VP for legal affairs at the Cato Institute and director of Cato’s Center for Constitutional Studies, had this to say about NSA surveillance: Yes, government officials might conceivably misuse some of the trillions of bits of metadata they examine using sophisticated algorithms. But one abuse is no pattern…

Feminist Bullies Tearing Video Game Industry Apart

Epic piece by Milo Yiannopoulos on Breitbart’s London site. Apparently some of the female feminists have been offering sex to various games journalists in order to get coverage for their cause, along with using threats, intimidation, lies and a host of other nefarious means. Here’s a snippet: Instead of addressing allegations of corruption, examining their…

Women, Trick Your Husbands Into Having Kids
