If you have been keeping an eye on entertainment media this year, 48 year old Leslie Jones has had a breakout year. Starring in the all-female cast of the Gostbusters reboot, a hilarious series of Allstate Commercials, and a gig as “Americas Biggest Olympics Fan”. To my view, Leslie has performed as about the funniest Comedian on TV the last year. Her perfomances have been a breath of fresh air.
Being black, female, and not a Barbie Doll (AKA Stacy Who?) the “alt-right”, made up of Internet Trolls, Breitbart followers, and Chumphazoids had to try and destroy her….
Be strong Leslie – I for one, love what you are doing, love your attitude, and your humor.
They want to destroy Leslie Jones: Harassment targeting “Ghostbusters” star exposes the ugliness driving the new right
The attacks against Jones lay bare the resentments fueling what is euphemistically known as the “alt-right”

RachelMaddow/MSNBC – Confusion Follows Donald Trump Leadership Change – 12 Year Old Runs A Trump Colorado County CampaignAugust 25, 2016

“Those who would treat politics and morality apart will never understand the one or the other.”
– JOHN MORLEY (1838-1923) British statesman
an Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein and her Vice Presidential running mate Ajamu Baraka pull off a political, historic and odds-defying “miracle” over the next 75 days and win the 2016 presidential election? Just thinking about such a possible scenario coming to pass on voting day November 8 gives the idea of “the old college try” a whole new meaning and level of intensity.
What can one discern from observing neither Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump have expressed any welcoming of Dr. Jill Stein and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson to televised debates, marking the 1st time in U.S. presidential political history where four candidates take the stage and engage in battles of ideas? In answer to that question… Because blocking Dr. Stein and…

“I can say without the slightest hesitation, and yet in all humility, that those who say that religion has nothing to do with politics do not know what religion means.”
– MOHANDES GANDHI (1869-1948) Hindu national leader
r. West’s keynote speech at the Green Party Convention in Houston, Texas was so extraordinarily remarkable and rare for political oratory that one becomes especially careful, and concise, when assembling any analysis and/or commentary. One senses his speech literally manifested the sacred on Earth, and that when such rare occurrences of true spiritual power are beheld the only possible reaction or response is one of highest respect and honor. Along with the unavoidable recognition that Dr. West was on sacred ground during this speech comes the certainty of knowing not to describe it in any manner diminishing that sacred aspect. In other words, when talking about Dr. West’s speech it…

Throughout 2016, pollsters have debated the best way to measure support for third party candidates.Some vote choice questions include Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein as explicit options, some do not, and often the results vary accordingly. Since June, the NBC News/SurveyMonkey election tracking polls have asked the vote choice question both ways, with and without Johnson and Stein.
Which version of the vote choice question provides the most accurate snapshot of the way votes would be cast if the election were actually held today? The answer is not as simple as it may seem.
The pollster’s dilemma
Gary Johnson and the Libertarian Party appeared on state ballots inall but two states in 2012, and Stein and the Green Party appeared on all but 12. They will likelygain access to at least as many state ballots this year, if not more. Without…

In “Hillary Health Shocker!” Mr. Bruni says Google and Twitter never lie. There’s something afoot with Clinton. Here he is:
Although she has gone to extraordinary lengths to distract and deceive American voters, the truth is finally coming out: Hillary Clinton has an 11th toe.
I don’t have the medical records. She refuses to release them. But just try to come up with some other explanation for why she’s so infrequently photographed in sandals or flip-flops; why she seldom appears barefoot in public; why, during debates, she keeps her legs, especially the lower halves, tucked carefully behind the lectern.
She’s covering something up, and it’s that freakish, disqualifying digit.
Have you watched her walk? Look closely. She wobbles a bit, or maybe it’s more of a teeter, combined with a lurch, and the likeliest cause is podiatric asymmetry. I consulted foot specialists. At least they referred to themselves that way online…

The Mayor Is A Mook! – TeaParty Trump-Republican Aberdeen (Md) Mayor McGrady Promotes “Idaho Potatos” In June But Opposes State/County Grant-Support For Potato Chips Made In Aberdeen In August!August 19, 2016
Mayor McGrady is a political mook. He and his illegitimate political council appointee Steve Goodin played fast and lose with the economic development of Aberdeen by voting against a $1 million state grant to support Frito Lays $60 mill expansion. The same mooky McGrady wondered out loud 6 weeks ago why the Lidl grocery corp didn’t bring their hq and distribution center to Aberdeen when they decided to put a retail outlet in town. Its simple. Cecil County’s deal was a $360K State loan, a $16,000 conditional loan and a $20,000 worker training grant by Cecil’s OED. At the time Lidl made there decision, Aberdeen City was involved in a crazy five month long struggle to have a council run-off vote to resolve the tie-vote council seat. And the result was not a proper democratic process but instead it was a rigged corrupt run-off procedure that ended up putting one of McGrady’s Tea Party cronies in office who had nothing to do with the tie-vote.
If Lidl was watching this political fiasco that ended in political corruption, what would they think? A Mad Hatter Tea Party Mayor who couldn’t do a proper democratic runoff in ten days. And to top it off, the Tea Party Mayor was a rightwing-nut political mook who doesn’t think govt should give corps economic incentives. The crony-crooked Mayor of Aberdeen ‘doesn’t like socalled “economic cronyism”.. The retailers are watching the political stability of Aberdeen city government and if there not laughing then they must be shaking their heads in bewilderment..

While Republican Harford County States Attorney Joe Cassilly is not fit to be a judge, his little brother ,newly elected Md. State Senator Bob Cassilly got him a raise eqivalent to a District Court judge with Senate Bill 146. Is the matter unethical, immoral and illegal? Should a State Senator be able to use his political influence to get his brother a pay raise? Write your State Senator…er…oh you cant do that! Write your congressman! Ask the Republican Aegis/Sun why they didn’t report or examine the matter! And thank Soul Crusher at the Dodgy Dagger for once again pointing out POLITICAL CORRUPTION !!!!
Cronyism Corruption – Aberdeen Mayor’s “Handpicked ” City Employee Insurance Company, Evergreen’,Owes Medicare Adjustment Fund $25 MillionAugust 19, 2016
The Aberdeen Mayor that doesn’t like the democratic process in elections and in city council matters recently selected without Council discussion or vote a new insurance company for city employees. Mayor McGrady with advise from a non-elected crony ( the mysterious Mr. Gary Wilson) decided to change City employee insurance from Cigna to Evergreen. A representative of the city police union,Jason Neidig, testified against the arrogant autocratic decision pointing out that the city Finance Director opposed the change also. There also was no input on the matter sought from employees or the general public. The Mayor just buried the unilateral decision in the annual budget. The City Council was asleep at the wheel over the decision and did not raise any questions or interest in the matter . The Council surrendered their responsibilty to be a checks and balance to the mayors corrupt decision making process again.
