BREAKING: SS has had "more than one conversation" with #trump about the 2nd amendment comments


Sorry, I wanted to indicate this was a tweet from Jim Sciutto, CNN's Chief National Security Correspondent but there wasn't room!

The Veterans of Foreign Wars have issued a statement condemning Trumpís attack on the military Gold Star Kahn family.

In a statement, the VFW said:

"Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump has a history of lashing out after being attacked, but to ridicule a Gold Star Mother is out-of-bounds." said the new national commander of the near 1.7 million-member Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and its Auxiliary.

ďElection year or not, the VFW will not tolerate anyone berating a Gold Star family member for exercising his or her right of speech or expression,Ē said Brian Duffy, of Louisville, Ky., who was elected July 27 to lead the nationís oldest and largest major war veterans organization. There are certain sacrosanct subjects that no amount of wordsmithing can repair once crossed. Giving oneís life to nation is the greatest sacrifice, followed closely by all Gold Star families, who have a right to make their voices heard.Ē


A favorite song/video of mine-- "Africa" by toto

All the Dems have to do in order to win

...is tell the truth and be themselves. Which they accomplished admirably at the DNC.

He's a charlatan, a buffoon, an imbecile, and thoroughly despicable

So what's to like?

As a conservative journalist wrote on American Thinker:

Donald Trump exemplifies every character trait that parents teach their children not to have. He is a braggart, bully, and liar; he is condescending, nasty, judgmental, mean-spirited, divisive, thoughtless, impulsive, selfish, hubristic, unprincipled, misogynistic, and simply put, a jackass. He lacks compassion, empathy, class, social graces, humility, and kindness.


Put ever so well

Stonehenge Begins to Yield Its Secrets

AMESBURY, England ó About 6,300 years ago, a tree here toppled over.

For the ancients in this part of southern England, it created a prime real estate opportunity ó next to a spring and near attractive hunting grounds.

According to David Jacques, an archaeologist at the University of Buckingham, mud was pressed into the pulled-up roots, turning them into a wall. Nearby, a post was inserted into a hole, and that may have held up a roof of reeds or animal skin.

It was, he said, a house, one of the earliest in England.


OMG!! Aren't they gorgeous??? (For all you cat lovers)

*** Impossibly beautiful ***

They're Servals

They get up to 26 lbs

BTW, it does bother me that they are in people's homes and not in the wild, where they belong.

How about a little tail??

A comprehensive website of cliches (though I prefer to call them idioms)

Fascinating because, among other things, it lists the country of origin (and it's astonishing how many of these idioms originated in the US)


The Biggest PR Myth of All: Thereís No Such Thing as Bad Publicity

To those who believe "there is no such thing as bad publicity," I have to respectfully disagree. And I found an excellent article about why it's a myth that puts it much better than I ever could.

The idea that thereís no such thing as bad publicity is laughable. Itís totally insane.

Just ask BP. Do you think they enjoyed being in the spotlight for the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf? Do you think they enjoyed having people boycott their fueling stations? Do you think they thought it was cool that there was a BP oil spill Halloween costume?

Of course they didnít. The company took a massive hit thanks to all of the negative publicity. Theyíve already spent millions trying to rebuild their image through a PPC campaign, TV commercials, and more.

And what about Toyota? How do you think all of those recalls over faulty, dangerous vehicles worked out for them? Last time I checked, their sales were down nearly 10%, and their competitors were making huge gains.

Oh, and letís not forget about Tiger Woods. Itís been exactly one year since his scandal, and the public hasnít viewed the athlete the same ever since. Thanks to the negative publicity, Tiger Woods lost numerous sponsors, including Accenture and AT&T. You think he enjoyed the negative media attention? You think Tiger feels thereís no such thing as bad publicity?

Somehow, I doubt it.
