Leaked Documents Allege the NRA Has Been Spending $100,000 a Day on Lawyers – Slate

I’m a blogger, not an investigative reporter. But I’ve got a good sense for numbers. So let’s see 35 million dollars a year on lawyers, 42 million dollars a year to an advertising agency, 60 million dollars towards the campaign of Donald Trump. that’s a lot of money for one nonprofit organization!

The NRA went from a gun safety organization to an organization that protects mass murders and their perpetrators.

the NRA and gun rights organizations in the US love to say that their rights are inalienable under the second amendment. Have we ever looked at the wording of the second amendment? The first words are a “well regulated militia”, regulations are in the first few words of the amendment. It was never meant to be an all out flooding of the market with high capacity and armor piercing bullets. Military-style weapons should be in the hands of the military. their arguments make as much sense as saying that we all have the right to have our own private nuclear Arsenal.

And as far as these leaked documents, they’re coming from Oliver North, one of the sleaziest people that we have had to deal with since the Reagan Era. He was the guy who sold weapons 2 hide from Congress the funding of an illegal act. Wayne LaPierre you go to bed with dogs you’re going to wake up covered in fleas.

The NRA has become a merchant of death and a very corrupt one at that.

Your Private Facebook Posts May Have Been Public For Days – Yahoo News

How much clearer can we be but to say that we are not the customers of Facebook we are the product that Facebook sells. There’s no other way around this and if you believe otherwise then you have been fooled by their marketing. Sure they have this feel good marketing campaign telling us how they’re going to go back to the way they used to be, is that going to be any better? The way they used to be was the way that got us Trump in the White House, that guy that sold to the highest bidder.

Do me a favor. Delete Facebook app from your phone. I’m not telling you to deactivate your Facebook I’m just telling you to delete it from your phone. Try it for a week. If at the end of the week you don’t feel better then put it back on and they cost you nothing because all you need to do is log back in. But I promise you you’re going to feel better and you’re going to see that Facebook is one of those things that we’ve gotten used to but we really don’t need. We did really well until 2004. Yes 2004 is when Facebook was just a little bit of an idea and Mark Zuckerberg mines. We did well and we survived so it’s time that we stop letting them have all of our information for free.

Trump’s liar-in-chief: Since joining his staff, Kellyanne Conway has been living in a world of make believe – Salon.com

The first interview I saw of her after becoming campaign chairman for Donald Trump was on Chris Matthews Hardball. The outrage from that interview has caused Chris Matthews ratings to plummet. Right out of the gate she started lying and hasn’t ever stop lying weather it’s July to make Donald Trump look good or to lie to make Hillary Clinton look bad. I know PR and PR makes people see the best of what the pr people AR promoting. It’s why the first thing someone does when he or she screws up is they hire a PR firm.

Miss Conway is not a PR person. She is a propagandist and one with an evil agenda. She knows she’s lying and she repeats it over and over again. It’s what has become the norm with politicians who are on the wrong side of an issue. I watched her say that Donald Trump does not insult people. Was she in a coma during the primaries? She says she’s not interested in talking about Hillary’s health, and yet she does so in a new window over and over. She’s a perfect match for Donald Trump and that cabal that he’s put together as a campaign. Lord, I look with Nostalgia at the days of Paul Manafort. Kellyanne Conway is a con man. She is the one who said there would be a softening of Trump’s immigration policies.  In fact there has been no softening or hardening. He is just repeating the policies that President Obama has been carrying out the last 8 years. Donald Trump is a con man and he hires con people around him. Maybe after the election they can start a circus.
