Jim Gilmore has dropped his bid for the presidency, which is a real shame, because he had the broad knowledge, experience, and temperament to be a very good President.
The veteran character actor has finally died. I say “finally” because he had the distinction of having already been reported dead twice by the media in the 1980’s. When he actually did pass away at age 94, he had managed to live a very full life, one which he evidently enjoyed to the max.
The Clinton Foundation received a subpoena from State Department investigators last fall. We know they wanted records pertaining to the slush fund — I mean charity’s projects which required federal approval during her tenure, and for records pertaining to her aide, Huma Abedin.
That means that Hillary is now tied to at least four federal investigations that we know of.
Idaho had them due to a rare weather event. I’m still searching for some pix, but let’s face it — weird weather is fun!
Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have both suspended their campaigns yesterday. Christie added some interest and fire to the process without descending into Donald Trump’s crudity. I would have been happy to vote for Fiorina, a classy lady with a keen mind, quick wit, and business experience. She was never caught at a loss, always responded to attacks with wit and class, and was steadfastly composed, logical and rational. I do hope that the eventual Republican nominee will be smart enough to select Fiorina as his vice president. She would make a good one, and heaven knows she is uniquely qualified and able to take on Queen Hillary. My favorite line from the political season was her lucid explanation that flying was an activity, not an accomplishment.
I suppose Dr. Ben Carson may be the next to fall.
I confess that this is a new term to me. Most often you hear about neighborhoods occupying former farm land complaining vociferously about animal and earth smells and equipment noises. This is a case of people deliberately building homes around small working farms in order to secure the freshest, healthiest food.
Real estate developers play a large part in this trend, because it’s a selling point, and property next to a farm is a lot cheaper than that beside a golf course. Of particular interest to many buyers, and to me because I grew up on a working farm, is the sense of community which the arrangement engenders. Note to progressives: Neighborhoods function a lot better when they aren’t at the mercy of dope dealers and gangs…
This is HUGE! The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the 27 states and various companies and business groups who sued to stop the regulations under the administration’s Clean Power Plan from going into effect while the legality of the plan is litigated. I had not been hopeful for this result when the U.S. Appeals Court ruled against them, but perhaps the judicial system is beginning to wake up and remember its real job.
His Oneness planned to get the crippling regulations in effect and let the case spend years in litigation while he put the coal industry out of business and made energy as expensive as he promised he would.
