These Memes About Scalia’s Death Are So Wrong, But SO DAMN FUNNY!

Some may criticize me for sharing these hilarious death memes that feature Justice Antonin Scalia, but I don’t really care. Reportedly Justice Scalia had a great sense of humor, so I say we laugh now and realize that all of us are going to die one day, too. Until then, we should have fun and live life to the fullest. So with apologies (kinda) I give you:

This Website Lets You Show Your Dislike Of Donald Trump In An AWESOME Way!

We might as well just say this and be done with it: Few people are more odious and objectionable than Donald Trump. And yet this guy is the frontrunner for the 2016 GOP nomination!

How can we ever hope to properly express our dislike and disdain for the Donald? We can curse until we’re blue in face, but that’s bad for your blood pressure. We can shake our heads, but an entire debate of head shaking can leave your neck sore. We can turn the channel when we see his face on the screen (my preferred method). Or we can get a smidgen of revenge on the man with the dead hamster on his head.

Simply go to TrumpDonald.org and you’ll be taken to a page with a blue background and a photo of Trump. You’ll also notice a large trumpet which you can control with your mouse. Click the mouse and a burst of air exits the trumpet, blowing back Trump’s hair. Sometimes you even get lucky and are given a celebratory shower of confetti as an added bonus. But there is one warning that should come with this site: It can get addictive very quickly!

So the next time you feel those anti-Trump feelings welling up inside, save yourself all that frustration and give the Donald the treatment he deserves.

Trust me on this one: This website is gonna be “YUUUUUUUGE!”

Federal Judge Says Walmart Must Reinstate And Pay Workers Fired For Striking

An administrative law judge with the Labor Relations Board has ordered Walmart to reinstate 16 workers the judge says were unlawfully fired for going on strike against the retailer.

Walmart was also ordered to pay those who were fired back pay and expunge the disciplinary records of 38 other workers who were punished for being part of the strike.

The group OUR Walmart filed a complaint against the world’s largest retailer in 2013 after workers who participated in strikes centered around Wal-Mart’s annual shareholders meeting in Bentonville, Ark., were fired when they called for an annual salary of $25,000 for employees.

Judge Geoffrey Carter ruled that workers from 26 Walmart stores across the United States were illegally punished merely because they took part in the protests.

Additionally, Judge Carter ordered that managers at the stores affected must hold staff meetings and  workers must be informed of their right to strike. He also ruled that store managers must read from a script which says they promise not to threaten or discipline workers for exercising their rights to protest or strike.

Walmart argued that the strikes were hit-and-run, intermittent work stoppages and therefore not protected under federal labor law. The company said it plans to appeal the judge’s ruling to the full NLRB. Company spokesman Kory Lundberg said Wal-Mart “will pursue all of our options to defend the company because we believe our actions were legal and justified.”

9-Year-Old Girl Outclasses Confederate Flag Wavers At Weekend Rally (Video)

At a Black Lives Matter rally in Johnson City, Tennessee, over the weekend, a little girl showed everyone what love and tolerance are all about.

The rally was part of a national movement to mark the one year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri. About 300 people showed up in Johnson City.

Among the 300, two white men counter protested by waving Confederate flags. One of the men, as he walked through the crowd, announced:

“This flag is not hate, it’s heritage.”

Overall, activists who organized the rally said they were pleased with the turnout and what it represented. One woman, Monique Hall, remarked:

“I never, in my day, thought I would see this. It’s just been really hard to live here. To see this it makes me really hopeful that this place can change.”

But the day was best summed up by a precious little 9-year-old girl named Patiance Gardner who said:

“I really hope racism just stops, and people don’t judge people by their skin color. They’re making sure everybody fights racism and we’re sticking together. Everybody is God’s creatures.”

Leave it to a child, with her pure heart and clear mind, to speak words that cut to the very core of the issue. What Patiance Gardner said is exactly what needs to be said over and over again in this country: We are all the same, no matter the color of our skin, our religion, our background, our social status or income. This is the very essence of what Jesus taught:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)
