I think I meant "are the alternative facts." I don't know English grammar.

I also don't know Christianity apparently as these folks are looking to going to church armed:

Possible voter suppression in action. Many registered Virginia democrat voters are reporting that they are receiving calls falsely telling them their polling location has suddenly changed. Some of the calls coming from out of state. Virginia ACLU urging anyone getting these calls to only trust the Virginia department of Elections for accurate polling locations.

I actually received a random text message today with a link to a website that had my correct polling location. I voted about 6 hours prior to receiving the text message, so went to the website just to see if there was mischief in the air. There wasn’t. At least for me.

Who wins biggest in the GOP tax plan? The lazy rich.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions ... fb07144b5d

The Republican tax bill is often described as being weighted toward “the rich.” But that’s not the full story. 
It’s actually weighted toward the loafer, the freeloader, the heir, the passive investor who spends his time yachting and charity-balling. 
In short: the idle rich.
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. - Thoreau

This Florida school is selling bulletproof panels for students' backpacks
George Gulla, dean of students and head of school security at Florida Christian School, told CNN the bulletproof panels would add "another level of protection" to students of the pre-K through grade 12 school "in the event of an active shooter."

The school has never had a shooting incident.

"The teachers are trained to instruct the students to use their backpacks as a shield to protect themselves," Gulla told CNN in an email.

The cost of the panels is $120.

Carter Page has to be the weirdest, creepiest person in the whole Trump/Russia saga. I've been trying to put my finger on how one would describe him and sum everything up about him so far; this piece comes the closest to anything I've read.

https://amp.thedailybeast.com/the-stran ... lf-on-fire
Watching Carter Page immolate himself and incriminate a half dozen of his colleagues from the Trump-Putin 2016 campaign has been a strange, almost guilty pleasure. Profoundly disconnected, socially awkward, and reeking of late-stage virginity, he gives off the creepy Uncanny Valley vibe of a rogue, possibly murderous android or of a man with a too-extensive knowledge of human taxidermy and a soundproofed van.
