How any reasonable Democrat could possibly support the Clinton regime for presidency of the United States, it simply escapes my cranium.

Then again, if this happens to be one of those "news" clips they were referring to as fake news...

"...Invites by the school were sent to more than 30 students. Twenty-five volunteered to do the interview, and the first 16 students who signed up were selected.

"Ten of the students thought Clinton behaved better during the debate, while seven thought Trump did."

I am not sure who did the math here, but if sixteen students were chosen for this focus group, how is it that 17 shared their thoughts on who did better? (And funny thing to note is how this correlates to John Oliver's "Kids Count" rant!)

"The jury's 12 members and six alternates were chosen in a two-month selection process that included multiple requests by defense lawyers to move the trial out of Boston, where they said Tsarnaev couldn't get a fair shot in a city where nearly everyone was impacted by the bombing or its aftermath."

Hmm, let's see. Requesting a fair trial because everyone there is "too local." Maybe Tsarnaev should have thought about that before pulling the trigger on that horrendous act. But seriously, where in the United States do you think someone could POSSIBLY get a fair jury to start off with?

As stated by the UAE Islamic Affairs, "It is not permissible to travel to Mars and never to return if there is no life on Mars. The chances of dying are higher than living."

"Bottled water is a bad investment for so many reasons. It's expensive compared to what's coming out of the tap, its cost to the environment is high (it takes a lot of fossil fuel to produce and ship all those bottles), and it's not even better for your health than the stuff running down your drain."

"'It seemed to me that Misha had influence on Tamerlan,' apparently encouraging him to give up boxing because it 'is violent,' Khozhgov told CNN's Wolf Blitzer."

What I do not understand here is if boxing is considered "violent," how in the world did Tamerlan see setting off bombs in a public location and shooting an officer as anything less that violent? Whatever possible justification altered that reality...too late now.

I looked at a section of the news today, and I read, "President Barack Obama has released a $3.77 trillion, 2,000-page spending plan that cuts some cutting edge military technology projects in favor of a fifth domain for battle: cyber."

Let me get this straight...a $3.77 trillion spending plan takes up 2,000 pages? Really!? And how much did the printing purchase cost alone on this note??

...Really? This is utterly, jaw-dropping pathetic in my opinion. Paying people to come weep at one's funeral is a step in the wrong direction. I mean, come on...if someone is bad/arrogant/rude/deceitful/disrespectful enough for one's family to have to pay others to mourn their loss, I just do not see a good cause for this. And yes, people might be making a profit; however, their methodology is a demented way of doing business.

I am not going to post any links or mention the name here, but I find it to be absolutely stupid to name the individual who shot OBL.

This one hits a nerve. Not necessarily that they want to picket Elizabeth Edwards' funeral, but the whole concept of that "church."  I cannot understand why they have such horrible desires to picket funerals of fallen soldeirs. I would hate to break this concept to them, but someone needs to get the point across - if it were not for the soldiers defending their freedom, they would have no freedom at all.

http://www.outlandersport.com/#/more-test-drive
If I may ask, where is the enjoyment of test driving a vehicle via the 'Net? I see this as a complete waste of time and effort because I will put money down that there will be plenty of people who intend to try and do unexplicable things with their driving abilities. Sure, I bet they have many safeguards preloaded to help prevent those things, but there is bound to be someone a step ahead who will take advantage of it... and most likely will not buy the vehicle!

I have stayed out of the news on the Nobama Health Care plan, but from each and every bit that I hear... I have zero understanding of how it would be accepted by the people of the United States.
Update: Lo and behold... some interesting feedack on this article here.
Update: Received from an e-mail:

Let me get this straight.

We're going to pass a health care plan written by a committee whose head says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it, signed by a president that also hasn't read it, and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's nearly broke.

What could possibly go wrong?

This statement from the article sums it up for me:
"If people don't think we were able to go to the moon, then they don't believe in the ingenuity of human achievement. Going to the moon and returning astronauts safely back to Earth is arguably one of the most profound achievements in human history, and so when people simply believe it was a hoax, they lose out on that shared experience, and doubt what humans can do."
