    The Senate’s Military Spending Increase Alone Is Enough to Make Public College Free

    Those concerns were brushed aside Monday night, as the Senate overwhelmingly approved an $80 billion annual increase in military spending, enough to have fully satisfied Sanders’s campaign promise. Instead, the Senate handed President Donald Trump far more than the $54 billion he asked for. The lavish spending package gives Trump a major legislative victory, allowing him to boast about fulfilling his promise of a “great rebuilding of the armed services.”

    Eight Senators voted against, three of them Republicans.  See if you can find yours. #Resistance

    The Ensteins of the Faux Morning show getting schooled by Dr. Oz on marijuana.  The Dooche is shocked! shocked!, I tell you, at being exposed to a few uncomfortable factoids on the plant:

    ‘Wow’: Dr. Oz leaves Fox & Friends horror-struck by springing pro-marijuana rant as segment ends

    “The real story is the hypocrisy around medical marijuana,” Oz said as the Fox & Friends hosts appeared stunned. “People say marijuana is a gateway drug to narcotics; it may be the exit drug to get us out of the narcotic epidemic.” (emphasis mine)

    “Wow!” exclaimed co-host Steve Doocy, who is known for mocking marijuana users with the phrase “all potted up.”

    “We’re not allowed to study it because it’s a Schedule I drug,” Oz added. “And I personally believe it could help.”

    “I hadn’t heard that before,” Doocy gasped as he quickly ended the segment.

    Hadn't heard that before? How dumb is this guy? And they let him run a news show? Well, as much news as you're ever likely to get from FixedNews. Michael, where is the opioid epidemic worst? In the blood-red states where the politicians are most stubbornly resistant to cannabis. Am I right?

    Has our soda jerk weighed in yet today with his pearls of wisdom from the fountain of justice?

    Honestly, you couldn't make this stuff up (not satire)

    I'll bet Fluffy fell for this one, too…

    Shall we add "grossly irresponsible use of time travel" to the list of things Hillary Clinton has done to harm America?

    A little trip down memory lane:
