    Astros fans somehow in shock that they were booed at Dodgers Stadium. On Tuesday evening the MLB All-Star game went underway in Los Angeles at the iconic Dodgers Stadium. Well, it came as no surprise that the visiting Astros players were booed when they were announced on the field. The thing is … the Astros fans were surprised and that seems a little silly, all things considered. Take a look at how fans reacted on Twitter. The hate for the Astros, Padres, and Giants ???? — Tamara Yeghiayan (@TamaraYeghiayan) July 20, 2022 Every time I see one of these Astros players with the ASG hat, I laugh to myself because it looks like an Asterisk — Lets fly ????

    South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem Republican governors are experiencing the benefits of President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan. Their budgets are afloat on a tide of money coming from the COVID-19 relief bill, which is funding priorities from rural hospitals to water and sewer systems to affordable housing. That fact has not stopped their whining about the law, though. South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem railed against it as “a giant handout from Washington, D.C.” in a budget address explaining that she was spending the money on water projects, childcare, and more.  Why didn’t she just refuse the dirty, dirty handout? Because “Giving that money back means that money goes to another state—to California, to New Jersey, maybe Illinois, Michigan, or Minnesota. That money is not going back into South Dakota taxpayers’ pockets.” Funny story: three of the five states on her list send more money to the federal government in taxes than they get in funding. South Dakota does not. And that’s fine! Part of the point of having a federal government is to help states that need it. But it’s important context for her...
    Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images Curtis Sliwa, the Republican candidate for mayor of New York, tried casting his vote on the Upper West Side on Tuesday while accompanied by his cat Gizmo.

The New York Times reported that Sliwa was “irate,” and loudly bickered with poll workers. After being asked to remove his jacket that had his name on it, which is apparently considered unlawful campaigning at the polling site, the candidate shouted, “Arrest me! After catsing his vote, he placed his ballot in the machine and it promptly jammed. It needed to be repaired. Also, “An election worker hurled an expletive at Mr. Sliwa while asking him to leave,” said the Times. Later, the founder of the Guardian Angels complained, “They couldn’t have been more hostile.” Sliwa lives with Gizmo and 16 other cats in his Upper West Side studio apartment. “Gizmo was on the kill list,” he said. “Thank God my wife was...
    If you’ve been waiting all your life for Rudy Giuliani to cosplay as Abe Lincoln, then good news, person with really specific tastes! The former New York mayor posted a video of himself with a Lincoln filter in what is ostensibly meant to be a get-out-the-vote message for Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, running against Democrat Terry McAuliffe. #mcauliffeisbad just listen to Abe pic.twitter.com/tQbS9EVJ3Q — Rudy W. Giuliani (@RudyGiuliani) October 19, 2021 You may very well ask why he would do the ad as Abe Lincoln. Well, it was meant to reference a Clinton-era scandal over a plan to let top donors stay in the Lincoln Bedroom, a controversy that originated with a memo McAuliffe sent to a White House official. So in an approximation of a Lincoln voice, Giuliani said, “In my time, we had a name for men who sold bedrooms for one night. In your time, the name is Terry McAuliffe! End the Clinton sleaze once and for all!” To be fair, the comparison isn’t completely without merit. After all, who can forget...
    Difficult games always have a breaking point. It’s the moment when players have to decide if it’s their execution that’s holding them back, or their tactics. It’s the idea of doing the same thing over and over again, hoping for a better result or changing the approach altogether. The key to success is figuring out what the situation requires. In “Returnal,” players face that decision constantly in Housemarque’s genre-bending project. The developers behind “Alienation” and “Resogun” take their expertise in bullet hell shmups and apply it to a third-person rogue-lite for a unique but challenging experience. It all begins rather suddenly as Astra space scout Selene Vassos crash lands on the planet Atropos after being drawn in by a mysterious signal. Upon awakening, she finds herself amid an ancient alien civilization that has crumbled and her only way off the planet is to investigate the broadcast that drew her in. Selene will come across other versions of herself that have perished in “Returnal.” (Sony Interactive Entertainment)  RETURNING ETERNALLY That’s where “Returnal” starts but where it ends up is messy.

    Christopher Buggs, 26, reportedly told a judge to “suck” his “dick” during a virtual court appearance late last month. Instead, the judge held the accused murderer in contempt. Buggs has since been erroneously released from jail. Accused of killing Ernest Brownlee outside of a bodega in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant in Jan. 2018, Buggs had been imprisoned at Rikers Island while awaiting trial. On Feb. 16, the now-wanted man had a hearing before Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge Vincent Del Guidice and, according to the New York Daily News, after being denied bail on the murder charge Buggs “repeatedly” told the judge, “suck my dick.” In response, the judge found Buggs in contempt of court and ordered him to serve an additional 30-day sentence—not that it would have particularly mattered; since the defendant was denied bail anyway, he would have been stuck on the widely-criticized penal island until his trial began regardless. But, Del Guidice apparently reasoned, there were legal principles like respect for authority and the comity of the courtroom at stake. The judge’s formal/moral victory, however, eventually gave...
    Fox News may have joined the rest of the mainstream media in calling the 2020 presidential race for Joe Biden last weekend, but some members of the network’s on-air crew still can’t seem to wrap their heads around the fact that Donald Trump lost. Chris Wallace isn’t one of them. During a Friday afternoon appearance on Fox, shortly before Trump made his first public appearance since his loss became official, Wallace deftly dismissed an unnerving take on the state of the presidency from his colleague, reporter John Roberts. “The president does seem in a way though, Chris, to be winning even as he is losing in the current vote count,” Roberts said, acting as if the election were still ongoing. “Because for his die-hard fans, he is trying to make the case that he didn’t really lose the election, that it was taken from him.” “Is that an argument that he can credibly make?” the reporter asked. “Well, not in terms of the numbers at least so far,” Wallace replied. “Unless we see something from these lawsuits that we haven’t...
    Trump has claimed bizarrely that doctors get kickbacks from COVID deaths. It's a lie. Doctors are hitting back after Donald Trump claimed at several campaign rallies last week that they were deliberately mischaracterizing COVID-19 deaths because they were getting a financial kickback to do so. At a Wisconsin rally, Trump suggested that the coronavirus death toll — upwards of 225,000 in the United States — had been artificially inflated by medical professionals for profit. "You know some countries they report differently," he said. "If somebody's sick with a heart problem, and they die of COVID they say they die of a heart problem. If somebody's terminally ill with cancer and they have COVID, we report them. And you know doctors get more money and hospitals get more money. Think of this incentive."
    That’s a ‘non’ OUR hearts go out, really they do, to the Eurocrats apparently now downcast over the prospect of us leaving the EU with no trade deal. But what did they expect? It is incredible after all this time to see Brussels still bent on ensuring that Britain somehow loses out, so fixated are they on deterring others from ­abandoning their club. 3Michel Barnier, pictured with the PM's Brexit negotiator, won’t get his wayCredit: Reuters They are still making patently unreasonable power grabs even their europhile fans struggle to defend. They still want newly-independent Britain to surrender full control of our fishing waters. To agree economic restrictions to prevent us undercutting them and keep us under their thumb. They simply must change the record if they’re genuinely worried about the potential hardship of us trading on WTO terms — and them copping the blame. No objective person will fault Britain for sticking to its guns on principles so fundamental. Michel Barnier won’t get his way. He and those pulling his strings seem strangely unable to digest that the...
    Stephanie Keith/Getty Images New York Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) yelled at her again hours after a confrontation during which Yoho was heard calling her a “f*cking b*tch” following a rant that AOC says somehow involved “urine.” On Tuesday, The Hill reported on the confrontation between Yoho and AOC, which the congresswoman confirmed happened in a tweet. But Ocasio-Cortez went into greater detail in a series of direct messages with Yahoo! News’ Dylan Stableford and Brett Arnold, telling them that the ranting from Yoho and Texas Republican Rep. Roger Williams involved substances as disparate as “bread” and “urine.” “When I pass other members on the steps, regardless of party, I usually nod or say hello if I’m able. Out of nowhere, Yoho comes up to me and puts his finger in my face and flies off in a rage. He started going off about shootings and bread and nonsense, calling me crazy, shameful, out of my mind, etc. “At first I tried to talk to him, but that just made him yell over me more,” she...
    (CNN)Americans are waking up to a new nightmare. On top of a pandemic that has ravaged the country, killed more than 100,000 people so far and shut down much of our economy, there are now mass protests in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man who pleaded, "I can't breathe," as a white police officer kneeled on his neck. With President Donald Trump sending out tweets threatening violence against looters and police arresting reporters on air, it's hard for Baby Boomers not to feel like this is 1968 all over again. Julian ZelizerIt was a difficult time then. The nation was stuck in the quagmire of Vietnam, with hundreds of thousands of troops fighting for their lives in a useless conflict. Meanwhile, every day seemed to bring more news of turbulence at home as the anti-war movement brought ongoing clashes between activists and police. The nation was still reeling from a series of devastating riots the year before, stemming from the police harassment of African Americans in Newark, New Jersey, and Detroit, Michigan. Two of the nation's...
