I’ll take a Chocolate Sea Salt, please. No Arts Festival for you! The Grit Tree has been reborn as Bulldawg Illustrated . Long live Lewis! Adidas builds its first US factory… in Cherokee County. Guessing that “Please win, pretty please?” is easier to take than the obsessive drone of “BeatGeorgiaBeatGeorgiaBeatGeorgia.” Would/could Glenn Beck go to jail for this? If you like your heart meds, you can keep your heart meds. (And don’t say it won’t happen here.) Somebody stop the bleeding. I love over-supply. How about you? Stop. Just stop. Cool space stuff. And saving the best for last… University chancellor installs escape hatch. Because students.

Hell’s Kitchen has been on for like 15 years now. August 12, 2016 11:49 AM Log in to Reply Davo65 I’m sick of this election…I want it to be over. But then again… August 12, 2016 1:05 PM Log in to Reply Saltycracker Interesting week involving interaction with Europeans here, particularly Italians, Greeks and Bulgarians. Concensus, things are very bad in Europe because of their corrupt governments. It is a “dangerous” place. They are extremely proud of the beauty of their countries, their love for the traditions and very sad for the conditions driving those that can, out. Their observation is that we can’t step back and see that the U.S. is going down that same road slowly with a choice of a crazy man or a corrupt woman. Getting free from corruption is the more “impossible”.

Iceberg meet Tip! http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-08-10/latest-hillary-email-scandal-shows-state-department-favors-clinton-foundation August 12, 2016 1:54 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Not sure I see the issue? Care to explain what is so scandalous about these emails? Maybe there’s an article out there from someone other than Putin’s favorite financial blog. August 12, 2016 3:36 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 If you don’t see something wrong with the contents in the article I linked, then keep kidding yourself. The Clinton Foundation asking favors of the Clinton State Department? Two months in? She hadn’t even had real time to familiarize herself with the 7th Floor. Is there not even the appearance of a wee bit of conflict of interest? Her staffers assisting Bill’s? Even if they used their own time, one better do a FOIA request to see if they put in for Annual Leave on the days in question. Go ahead and parse those words. Build the defense. It might sound eerily similar to another Clinton rationalization of “I guess it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” Or to go back to that Environmental Buffoon, Gore, with his “no controlling legal authority.” Yeah, that really works!! This looks bad. Even you have to admit the optics are damaging. And why put in a barb about “Putin’s favorite financial blog? The meat of the info in the blog citation came from the Wall Street Journal, hardly a right wing publication. No need to pummel the messenger. These releases are a little bit like Chinese Water Torture. Drip, drip, drip… All the while causing those precious few undecided voters to further question her honesty and truthfulness. I’ll grant you Trump’s statements are politically stupid at times. I find myself cringing almost twice a day it seems. So, it’s up to Trump’s insensitive mouth v Hillary’s indefensible past actions and see if people care. And just to give your side their due, I’m betting they won’t. Bad for the country. But that’s only MY opinion. But, taking in early voting times and all, I’m betting on more damaging email leaks, culminating with a pretty bad Late September Surprise. I’m thinking the Clinton campaign has truckloads of Lomotil and Tums on hand. August 12, 2016 6:13 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Don’t forget about Vince Foster. August 12, 2016 6:29 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus Our country is strong enough to withstand this sort of undermining. I hope. August 12, 2016 10:25 PM Noway2016 Jeez, this isn’t even perceived “impartial” anymore…. http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/08/12/cnns-cuomo-comes-right-admits-couldnt-help-hillary-377744 August 12, 2016 6:31 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse False equivalence. Who would treat the face of day to day rantings and subsequent explanations of an egotist absent the temperament, knowledge or experience to lead the US government with much respect. The negativity, obstructionism and persecution complex of a large minority if not majority within an overall minority GOP is running the GOP into the ground at the national level. Much of the GOP’s current power hinges on the distribution of voters—Democrats being more concentrated that Republicans—and a national system that currently favors red state over blue representation.

Doesn’t look good as corrupt Hillary has some pearls to toss to the masses.
