In many cases, we're talking about trolls, the people who post inflammatory, irrelevant or offensive comments. The latest to face the trolls' wrath is Maine Gov. Paul LePage, who the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued last Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the District of Maine on behalf of two clients who say they were unconstitutionally blocked from Mr. LePage's Facebook page....

MRC-TV A new study reveals that people who smoke marijuana are at three times higher risk of dying from high blood pressure than those who have never used the drug. Published on Wednesday in the European Journal of Preventative Cardiology, the study drew its findings from an analysis of about 1,200 people.

POLITICO National security adviser H.R. McMaster said Sunday that the car attack that left one dead at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday may meet "the definition of terrorism."

To most sane people, the photograph showed a young boy excited about helicopters; to some on the Left, the photo revealed a three-year-old's sexuality. Of course, beyond being wildly inappropriate (he just turned four!), this is some heavy stereotyping coming from the crowd that allegedly loathes stereotypes.... (more)
