Nonpartisan Uno deck is free of red, blue cards in hopes of keeping the holidays politics-free

Mattel is offering a solution to one of the trickier aspects of navigating a family holiday gathering – avoiding any political talk altogether – thanks to its new, limited-edition Nonpartisan Uno deck. 

The card deck looks a lot like the classic Uno game that players ages seven and up have come to love throughout the years; however, red and blue cards have been removed entirely. Instead, the colors that have come to be associated with the Republican and Democrat parties, respectively, have been replaced with orange and purple instead.

“Without Red or Blue cards the focus can stay on the game,” the Mattel Games website reads.

Also new to the deck is the VETO card, which features the word "politics" with a no entry sign through it. If a player should begin to enter a political discussion, playing the card can result in that person losing his or her turn.

The limited-edition Uno deck, sold at Walmart, appears to have already sold out. Mattel did not immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment.

    The concept of objectivity is under attack at the Trump impeachment hearings

    Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan, an expert on voting law, was clearly horrified, responding, “I have a right to cast a secret ballot.” And Harvard Law School scholar Noah Feldman pointed out that not raising hands didn't indicate an answer but an objection to the question itself. McClintock's point was to undermine the witnesses' presentations by pointing out their personal politics. The implication is that they can't possibly offer a reliable interpretation of the law because they dislike Trump, and therefore their testimony can be dismissed as partisan rhetoric.

    Pipeliner takes Railroad Commission to court over "needless" flaring

    Pipeline operator Williams MLP Operating LLC is suing the Railroad Commission of Texas over what it alleges is a pattern of allowing "needless" flaring of natural gas in the state. Williams filed a lawsuit in Travis County court last month challenging the Railroad Commission's decision to allow Exco Operating Co. LP to burn off gas at 130 oil wells in South Texas. Despite the fact that Williams operates a gathering system that connects to those wells and could have transported that gas to market, the Railroad Commission authorized the flaring because it wasn't profitable for Exco to sell the gas, according to the lawsuit.
