Déjà vu All Over Again?


Déjà vu is a feeling of familiarity, of having "already lived through" something is a feeling of recollection.
Will this upcoming weekends' free-speech demonstrations be peaceful or develop into Charlottesville continued?

The city of Boston has granted a permit for a “free speech” rally today that is expected to turn into a gathering of white supremacists. But the mayor is trying to prevent a second consecutive weekend of violence by prohibiting all weapons and backpacks at the event. https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2017/08/16/city-officials-meet-with-or...

Bug Meal


She reached out to the manufacturer, who offered to send a free coupon to purchase more salad. She also complained to US Government agencies who are responsible for food and commerce. They took her report, assigned a case number and so far nothing else has occurred.

She spoke to her physician, who ordered toxicity tests and the results will be carefully reviewed.

The lady is now mulling over a lawsuit after purchasing this bag of salad which came with a very nasty bug.

The disgusting insect was a nightmarish way to end her low-calorie meal during her lunch break at work.

Is This Leadership?


What happens to a leader who thinks he's the #1 Boss and CEO of US but in reality works for and was elected to represent all 333 million people of The United State of America? How past U.S. presidents have addressed racism and bigotry https://www.cbsnews.com/videos/how-past-us-presidents-have-addressed-rac...

Eight months into office, why has Trump yet to appoint key agency watchdogs? Is he really a stranger in a strange land, or is he carrying out a plot? https://www.cbsnews.com/news/months-into-office-trump-has-yet-to-appoint...

How can anything get accomplished by destroying laws, eliminating safeguards and attacking political party leadership on all sides of the isle? Trump's attacks could leave him friendless if impeachment comes https://reut.rs/2iaMBYt 'Toxic!': Trump hits back at GOP senators after criticism https://www.yahoo.com/news/toxic-trump-goes-2-gop-senators-charlottesvil...

Will more people be killed or injured before we the people wake up and take notice? Virginia governor: Charlottesville was about hatred, not a statue http://hill.cm/BF47KMz

Is there a sinister plan to destroy democracy in America as we know it? How close is this great nation to being shattered, or crumble? We must uphold the notion that all men are created equal. Fascism is not our future it cannot be; we cannot allow it to be so but this is surely the way fascism can begin: http://nyer.cm/Ss9dVaJ

Moral Decay Power Grab


Why did Trump go off the rails and burn bridges during a news conference for his supposed $1 trillion plan for infrastructure?

Folks on both sides of the aisle continue to respond after a political power grab and moral decay which included made up comments like alt-left and others that continue to mount on the part of the GOP's orange poop-on grand drag-in.

Is a so-called leader who does not allow discussion and insists on shouting down anyone who challenges him with inaccurate statements worthy of respect, or support? Have you had enough? Contact your representatives and let them know. https://deargovernment.info/ Also, reach out to The White House with your ideas and suggestions. Tell the president that he works for and represents the entire USA, not the other way around. https://dearmrpresident.org/

Do you want the news without the drama? Have you overdosed on @POTUS? #ControlaltdeleteTrump
