Webtacular World Issue # 221, February 25, 2018

Greetings Webtaculators! Nothing shows the true compassion of our President than requiring a note card with the bullet point “I hear you” to yet again demonstrate just how unqualified he is at his job. It is unfathomable that anyone could hold a meeting with shooting survivors to have an open dialogue and have to remind themselves to actually listen. It is even more insane that his single identifiable idea is to arm teachers to prevent shootings, since apparently the presence of multiple armed deputies clearly wasn’t enough. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: Xi Forever
Why: Because China’s establishment of its term limits now means that two superpowers essentially are dictatorships. This is probably not a good development.

What: Throw The NRA In A Fire
Why: Because the NRA has lost multiple business partnerships due to its comments regarding firearms at CPAC following the Florida shooting.

TECH THING OF THE WEEK ()
What: Convert To Word
Why: Because you don’t want to end up like Manafort.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)

What: BoJack Artsman
