Just when you thought the world could not get any dumber enter San Francisco-based Modern Appealing Clothing (MAC) who spent the efforts and energy to hire a law firm. Why did they need a law firm? Glad you asked because you’re going to get a good chuckle out of this one!
Apparently, MAC (the clothing company, not the cosmetics line) is filing a civil lawsuit that calls for a restraining order against all products of Ivanka Trump Marks LLC from being sold in the state of California.

The “unfair competition” citation is as follows:
On November 9, 2016, the day after Donald J. Trump was elected President of The United States, the competition between Plaintiff MAC and defendant Ivanka Trump began to favor defendant Ivanka Trump. Plaintiff MAC is informed and believes and thereon alleges based on news reports that, since the election, sales of defendant Ivanka Trump’s women’s clothing and accessories have surged several hundred percent compared to last year.

You can read the full transcript […]
I’m old enough to remember sitting just one row ahead of the “smoking section” on a flight from California to South Carolina as a teenager. Suffice it to say, the smoke was breathtaking (and not in a good way) and yet, somehow, I managed to survive the flight without an electronic device to seize my […]
An interesting article crossed our paths recently. At first glance the title speaks to what we’ve all been dealing with concerning Obamacare. Unspeakable Realities Block Universal Health Coverage In America It certainly seemed ok. It seemed to address the fact that the Democrats just don’t understand why blue collar America, those pesky Deplorables, voted for […]
The hearing will continue on for some time, but after the first couple of hours of the testimony of FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers, there are three takeaways that we can glean from this rare public hearing from the House Intelligence Committee. 1) The wiretap claim by Trump has been roundly […]
In a rare move, the House Intelligence Committee will be having a public, televised hearing today, where FBI Director James Comey will be giving testimony about any involvement by the Russian government in the 2016 presidential election, any possible surveillance by the Obama administration on Trump Tower, and pretty much anything else that pops into […]
