In other news, Kellogg has joined the growing list of companies pulling ads from notorious shitposting website Breitbart.

Meanwhile, a new study found homicides have increased by 32 percent in Florida as a result of "stand your ground" law.

Finally, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter says a continuing resolution that funds the government through May of next year would be "unprecedented and unacceptable."

He's right that it would be unprecedented. As I pointed out last week, funding the government until next summer with a continuing resolution would mean fiscal 2017 never existed. The government is currently funded by a continuance of fiscal 2016 which itself was a copy of fiscal 2015.

Here's a trivia question: when's the last time congressional Republicans actually completed the entire appropriations process?

    I wonder if their readers objected to the Coco Pops.

      They only objected to public monies going to the mental health support for being cuckoo for them.

    Here’s a trivia question: when’s the last time congressional Republicans actually completed the entire appropriations process?

    Hmmm…how about the Jurassic Period?

    Kellogg was advertising on Breitbart? I’m glad they pulled their advertising but my God… How amoral can a company/corporation be?

    Sadly, some crackpot source of funding will probably take up the slack. Like the Mercer family.

      To be clear, Kellogg and others did not ever intentionally or natively advertise at Breitbart.

      They’ve blacklisted Breitbart, which means their ads will never coincidentally show up there just because some algorithm or cookie tracker flagged a browser to see their ad as its distributed across an ad network.

      Kellogg has told their marketers to blacklist the site.

        Ahh…
        Still, it’s something.
