Winners and Losers: April 30

LOSER: North Korea is totally the annoying kid we have to hang with

North Korea is like that chubby kid on the play ground that nobody likes because no matter what everyone else is doing, they have to find a way to f#$% it all up for attention.

This punk country continues to taunt everyone around it – except China, which is basically the only country that tries to be it;s friend. The constant rhetoric about nuclear war oozing out of Pyongyang is and military blustering is aggravating beyond common limits of restraint. NK’s Military also showed their sexist side by referring to South Korea’s first female president, Park Geun-hye, a “ swish of skirt.” Take your ball and go home – please.

LOSER: Donald Sterling has his head way, way up where the sun don’t shine

We all know what Sterling said and we’re acutely aware of how far down his own mouth his foot has been placed by NBA players and officials. This situation truly defies all reason. Seriously, if you dislike black folks that much, why are you dating a mixed woman, or owning a basketball team made of mostly black players….This guy watched “Twelve Years a Slave” and rooted for Edwin Epps.

WINNER: Giffords writes awesome tribute to Yousafzai

Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and education activist Malala Yousafzai are probably the toughest , most admirable women in the world. Both were shot in the head for fighting for causes they deeply cared about, and they not only survived, but made full recoveries and are back to fighting the good fight. I say again, both of these women were shot in the head, and they have now become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

Giffords wrote a profile of Yousafzai for Time Magazine’s “100 most Influential People in the World” wednesday. She wrote: “I have seen courage in many places…but Malala’s courage is uncommon.” The fact that this happened and even that people like this exist give hope for the world.
