My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
I’ll preface this by saying I am not a fan of Jeff Bezos.
That being said, I’m certainly not a fan of the National enquirer or its parent corporation run by David Pecker. Yes, I used his name because it was funny in a sophomoric way.
I was just talking to a friend of mine about this. I had a caregiver about 3 years ago who was a gay man in his early 60s. He was well-educated and had a career as a character actor in Hollywood. He would take me to the grocery store and as we will check out he would short reading of theheadlines about Hillary Clinton on the cover of the National enquirer and tell mehow this was making him not want to vote for her.
How many others do you think had that same idea in the back of their heads?
78000 in three States?
Yes it’s a tabloid but for some reason people want to believe it’s headlines. Maybe because they’re salacious and people want to think that others have a worse life than they do even if they’re celebrities, especially if they’re celebrities. And to me that’s the danger of this publication. I would never advocate for it to be closed for any reason but it would be really nice if mainstream media would call it out for what it is, a bunch of lies.
He should have stayed in the company of the oligarchs that he loved so much. He even remade one in his own image in Ukraine. He truly believes that the Donald is going to give them a reprieve and I think Donald Trump will let him sink like a LEAD wait in the ocean.
This man is crooked, he got Trump denomination using illegal means. He changed the Republican platform in Russia’s favor and the list goes on and on of the greatest criminal hits this guy has. He’s going to spend a lot of time in jail, most likely the rest of his life. And I can’t think of anyone who hasn’t killed someone who deserves it more.
Today the NRA is like a wounded animal. They see the power of the young people and they understand that the tide is turning and turning quickly. They will do anything to keep selling more guns. A lot of people think about the NRA has some sort of an organization of gun owners. In fact it’s the lobbying group for gun manufacturers. An interesting aspect of gun manufacturers is that they are the only, the only, manufacturer that is not liable for defects in the manufacturer of their products. If a gun explodes in your hand you can do anything about it they are protected by the law.
Yesterday Trump said that he would consider raising the age for purchasing an assault weapon, he also said that he would consider making it more difficult to buy one through better checks. He also floated the idea of arming teachers. Today the first three ideas are off the table and now all he wants to do is put more guns in the school. This is not acceptable. Teachers, and we’ve all had them, or not there to kill a student or an assailant there there to teach our kids. It seems that Trump is doing everything to destroy our schools. He put in an in-depth Secretary of Education, he is cut funding for schools and teachers now have to buy the supplies for their students with their own money. Or his Russian overlords demanding that he dumb down the United States.
Never again is the rallying Cry of the students and they will not except this so called compromise. It’s not a compromise it’s a complete surrender to the NRA’s demands. The NRA wants more guns because the NRA represents gun manufacturers and please never forget that.
Russia and its unacceptable behavior on the world scene has suffered greatly under President Obama and the sanctions imposed by his administration. You add that to the fact that oil is at an unprecedented low and that makes a perfect storm for Putin to have huge issues with his people.Putin borrows money a level unprecedented and the inflation in Russia is now growing exponentially. So you can understand why Putin and his administration want the Trump Pence collaborator tickets to be elected in the US. This is unprecedented behavior on the part of a foreign country regarding the United States. I am happy that the federal government and President Obama have made the statement and are going to be vigilant about hacking done by the Russians.
Is telling the truth a completely unknown quantity to Donald Trump? He says in his interview which is going to air tomorrow on ABC’s Morning Show with George Stephanopoulos that he received a letter from the NFL complaining that the debate was up against an NFL game or two. First it’s on a Sunday night which is the highest viewership night of the week. Finding the Sunday night that doesn’t have a sports game of some sort is hard. And secondly and this is the part that really gets to me the NFL says they did not send a letter to Donald Trump. But I bet you George Stephanopoulos is not going to engage them on that and let the LIE slip by. And just to compound the LIE it’s only one game that will be at the same time as the debates. Hillary is going to cream him in the debates and make them into butter.
Did the Bates schedule is set by an independent committee and not by the candidates.
I believe that Donald Trump’s need for psychiatric care is demonstrated each time he opens his mouth. He’s paranoid and then you add in narcissism and you’ve got quite a bubbling cauldron of crazy. Now he thinks the boogeyman is Jeb Bush. Now he says he loves the competition with Jeb Bush. Isn’t Jeb Bush the one that Donald Trump called low energy? The Republican convention is going to be quite a show. In the end the hate you make is equal to the hate you get, to paraphrase the Beatles.

I think that Hillary is being very kind here. This man is a liar or a flip-flopper whatever is your taste. Just a few years ago he was for sensible gun control including better background checks and a complete ban on assault weapons. He says he wants gun free zones, why doesn’t he start with his own properties. He can do that he has that power, or does he. Many of the properties that bear his name are not owned by Donald Trump because he rents his name out left and right. The corporations that own his properties are sensible people. Now he wants votes from these simpletons they are following him around like he is some sort of Entertainer. He is an Entertainer and not someone who should be in the White House. He will say anything to get elected and his supporters will be very sorry if they put them in the White House. He doesn’t have the temperament or the intelligence to be the president of the United States or the commander-in-chief.
