I'm constipated.
Is this because of the vitamin E acetate?

Fox news has always been fake news for Republican identity politics but it wasn't until recently that they started adopting nanny state policies:

Shepard Smith challenges vaping industry defender: 'Not true' to claim it's safer than cigarettes

It sure seems a long way from encouraging people to take up arms to retain the freedom to kill endangered turtles on government land. It's almost as if they only care about freedom when it suits their ill thought through agenda.

I watched a live stream of Dimitris yesterday, about all this. He wants manufacturers to put up millions, so we can start an advertisement campaign on these news channels. And advertisers will get invited to make their point on their shows, and see them defended by the anchors.

He's absolutely right, of course. But it irks me to no end that truth has become nothing more than a battle of the advertisers.

Perhaps we should just start accepting that in the survival of fittest, in our current time the fittest are those who can discern facts from fiction.

But then Donald Trump is fit enough to be POTUS. When it comes to an ability to discern fact from fiction, he doesn't even live on the same planet as the rest of us.

It's more likely true that, in our current time, whoever can pull off the biggest lie is the fittest.

Ulster related news:

Northern Ireland court throws out Brexit case
By Associated Press
Published: Sept 12, 2019 6:38 a.m. ET

A motorist crosses the Ulster border in Middletown, Northern Ireland.

A Belfast, ulster court has rejected a claim that the British government’s Brexit strategy would harm Northern Ireland’s peace process.

Three linked cases had argued that a no-deal Brexit on Oct. 31 would undermine agreements between the British and Irish governments that were struck during the peace process.

Judge Bernard McCloskey rejected the arguments on Thursday.

The case is one of several challenges to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s plan to take Britain out of the European Union, with or without a divorce deal.

The U.K. Supreme Court is due to make the final on all the cases after a hearing next week.

Trump EPA set to officially roll back Obama clean water regulation

The Environmental Protection Agency is set Thursday to announce the repeal of the Obama-era Waters of the United States rule that extended federal authority and protections to streams and wetlands, according to a source familiar with the details of the announcement.

The announcement is scheduled to take place at the National Association of Manufacturers

Just when you think the Republicans have shed all of their traditional Moral Majority values they get right back on track with something like this.
