Trump asked for mail-in ballot for Florida's Tuesday primary election, he and Melania to vote by mail

President Donald Trump requested a mail-in ballot for Florida's Tuesday primary election, despite weeks of spewing hot lying garbage all over the place about how voting by mail means cats and dogs and zombies will get the vote.

Digitizing Burning Man

For decades, Burning Man has represented an escape from the current reality. An event for free-er spirits to rethink new age ideals inside a stateless entity where art, music and partying reign supreme on the desert plains. Over the years, the Bay Area-founded event has dealt with an internal clash as the gathering has grown larger and attracted a heavy presence from Silicon Valley’s wealthy tech class, with tales of turnkey experiences, air-conditioned camps, helicopters and lobster dinners.

However, not all of the results were directly tied to the far-right fringe conspiracy theory — some were pro-Trump propaganda or messaging associated with "Blue ...

Elizabeth Holmes dropped out of Stanford University at 19 to start blood-testing startup Theranos, and grew the company to a valuation of $9 billion.

Raising taxes won’t cure what ails California

A coalition of Democratic state lawmakers and liberal activists is touting new bill that attempts to deal with the state’s falling revenues caused by the coronavirus-related shutdowns. Assembly Bill 1253 is not really a new approach, of course, but the oldest one in the progressive playbook: boosting tax rates on the highest earners. This “Tax the Rich!” plan, as its backers themselves call it, would raise the state’s highest-in-the-nation income-tax rate to a mind-boggling 16.8 percent. It woul...

GOPers Keep Falsely Implying A Protester Killed A Federal Officer In Oakland

Trump administration officials and Republicans in Congress have for weeks played a rhetorical shell game with the American public.  The Black Lives Matter protests that have rocked the country for months, they’ve implied, are deadly: Just look at the federal officer who was murdered during a Black Lives Matter Protest on May 29. But the murder of Federal Protective Service Officer Dave Patrick Underwood, who was 53 when he was killed in a drive-by shooting, was not committed by a violent...
