Isn’t it weird that in 20 years you are going to be a completely different person then you are right now. A different house, different friends hopefully faster wifi.

I support higher, but seeing as how a raise would be incremental anyhow, I see no reason not to raise it to here and then continue advocating for a higher wage.

Analysis: Over Half of All Statements Made on Fox News Are False | Addicting Info

A new analysis by PunditFact found that of every statement made by a Fox News host or guest, over half of them were flat-out false. What’s more, only a measly 8% could be considered completely “true.”

In other words, a fancy review of hundreds of hours of video confirmed what many who watch Fox News with any regularity already know: Fox News lies. A lot. Like all the time.

Which isn’t to say that exposing Fox News’ irresponsible journalism isn’t an admirable goal. Despite its blatant spin doctoring, Fox still captivates a large portion of the news watching audience. On a near nightly basis, Fox News programs like “The O’Reilly Factor” and “The Kelly File” crush the competition. Given what we know about how poorly Fox informs its viewers, that paints a pretty grim picture for the millions who consume it without question.

As you can see, Fox manages to capture an impressive range between “Mostly False” all the way to “Pants on Fire” while at the same time just 40 percent could be said to be even somewhat true.

Some might argue that all news networks are pretty terrible and with the seemingly endless drivel that comes out of a 24-hour channel it’s a valid point. Luckily, PunditFact looked at a few other major stations as well and while they aren’t bastions of veracity, they at least look like they’re trying.

John Boehner, Asshole of the Day for July 11, 2014
by TheDailyEdge (Follow @TheDailyEdge)
Two weeks ago, we named John Boehner Asshole of the Day for suing President Obama for doing his job while the Speaker consistently refused to do his.
At the time we pointed out the hypocrisy of Boehner’s crusade against frivolous lawsuits while devoting most of his time—and a lot of our money—on pursuing them.
It gets worse.
Now that details of his suit against the President have emerged, it turns out that Boehner wants to sue Obama for doing one of the few things he and the President agree on: delaying the Obamacare employee mandate.
Adding to the ridiculousness, it has long been established that the delay in question was based on the Treasury Department’s "longstanding authority to grant transition relief when implementing new legislation."
As might be expected from the Worst Speaker in History, the Boehner lawsuit against Obama is illogical and silly. But it’s also dangerous.
Says Bloomberg’s Jonathan Bernstein: If Boehner’s frivolous lawsuit is allowed to go forward it would create a new kind of disaster for American society by further "enhancing judicial power at the expense of the elected branches. And that’s a very bad idea.” 
This is John Boehner’s 9th time as Asshole of the Day, as he continues to work toward what looks like a guaranteed place on the Mount Rushmore of Assholes.
