Dumb headlines thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

House passes broad anti-hate resolution after pressure from Omar allies

Given that Omar is a woman, misogyny is a serious issue and the resolution opposes prejudice, maybe they should have called it a 'comprehensive anti-hate resolution'. :wave:
So now you can't be anti-Israel without being anti-semitic, and thus can't follow the centuries-old Greek tradition of despising Turkey without being anti-Islam.

Despite all the kerfuffle about it being said outloud, I haven't heard anybody deny that Israel tries to buy influence.
I know that it's all been a BS attack on an outspoken Muslim Black woman, of course, so I haven't followed it closely. However, I did hear that the 'dual loyalty' argument has been particularly used by anti-Semites, and that may be true. That said, it does NOT mean that lobbying by US Jews against the interests of Americans can't ever be discussed for eternity.

I'm glad that the House went with a comprehensive anti-hate resolution that also condemns Islamophobia and white supremacy. Not that it's being reported this way, but that is a direct slap to POSPOTUS and his Trumpettes.

The Sierra Club - North Carolina Chapter newsletter includes an article with the headline:
NC’s youth step out to demand climate action

Cool, but here's the pic they used:

Walmart plans to add thousands of robot helpers to U.S. stores

Doesn't Walmart need robot customers before robot helpers will do them any good?

"Mind Blowing Amount of Trash Left After NASCAR Race"

Don't fans always leave after an event is over? Badaboom.

But seriously, these particular fans were pigs (with apologies to the pigs)

Probably not confusing for PA residents, but I couldn't imagine why wolf and gun-control advocates were arguing with each other at the same rally, especially when there are no wild wolves in PA.

Beware of the nonviolent tornadoes, too. You never know whether it's commitment to principle or a tactical ruse.

How Mueller's Farewell Subtly Rebuked Trump

Wasn’t anything “Subtly” about it. I heard Mueller:
Say that POSPOTUS fanboys were and still are useful idiots for Russia;
Call Putin’s Agent Orange and his lapdog, Barr, liars;
Beg Congress to impeach.

Police Identify Human Remains As Dennis Day, Long-Missing Original Mouseketeer

:lol: :oops: Not saying that it's a dumb headline, but I assumed he'd been missing since he was a Mouseketeer.
Oregon state police have confirmed that a body found in April is original Mouseketeer Dennis Day.

The body was found April 5 at Day’s Phoenix, Oregon home, but was badly decomposed, hindering identification by dential records or DNA. Day had been missing since July 2018....

I hope someone thinks to check my house if I go missing for a few months.

Seems the body was somehow hidden, but no smell?
Mouseketeer's family: 'It's been a long wait'

... The confirmation marks the end of an unusual missing-persons investigation that began nearly 11 months ago. Day was last seen alive in the middle of July 2018, and investigators found the longtime Phoenix resident’s body April 4 in the Pine Street home Day shared with his husband, Ernest “Ernie” Caswell following a search that involved two K-9s and a drone to search the property....

Maybe it was one of those spontaneous combustion incidents. Nothing left but ashes even if sitting in a chair, and the chair left undamaged. The guy sure had a big head when a Mouseketeer; he may have been a space alien all those years. This would also explain the mystery of the death.
