Marjorie Taylor Green claims satan is the reason why women are having abortions

But that's not all. According to the often intentionally dishonest Congresswoman, satan is the reason women are having abortions so they can keep their boyfriends. Some shocking but not so shocking but still shocking comments by Marjorie are making their rounds. In a bizarre interview, the Georgia far-right Congresswoman told a religious extremist that women are pretty much nothing if they aren't or don't become mothers. "Being a mother is what makes a woman's dreams come true," not a career, she told a religious extremist. “Abortion is a lie that Satan sells to women,” Greene told ChurchMilitant.com’s Michael Voris in an interview. “He sells it to them.” “When Satan sells a sin, it’s not loud,” she said. “It’s whispered softly and gently into your ears and into your soul.” ...

A data compromise at Grindr the gay dating app has surfaced. According to reports, a huge swathe of users appear to have had their location data sold to advertisers.

Instacart just announced a new policy to crack down tip-baiting + the practice explained

Tip baiting is described as when someone say orders on Instacart appears to put a tip up on the order when all is said and done. However the bait part comes when some (and evidently there are allot of people who do this) remove the tip at the very end with no valid reason. As many are probably aware with the delivery platform this has been an ongoing issue for Instacart so much so that they've actually addressed this once before. But it didn't do much. The new policy as noted below attempts to address it yet again for those cruel people out there taking tips from people who performed a task that otherwise could've been done by said person themselves (if it were that difficult to tip to begin with.) FROM INSTACART: If the customer reduces their tip to $0 without reporting any ...

Eric Adams now wants to boot homeless people from the streets of NYC, but won’t say where encampments are headed

Mayor Eric Adams is once again making headlines and this time for a very serious comment he made. According to reports, Adams intends to boot homeless encampments from the streets of New York City indefinitely "block by block" but it is unclear where said people will be sent considering there are now more than ever before. The disclosure of such plans appears to have come by way of a New York Times interview where Adams made the comments. Those moved from the encampments *may* be offered wraparound services and intervention help to get them into shelters -- but the local government cannot actually force these things upon people as it is against the law.
