Hillary Promises to Get Everyday Americans Foreign Money - revealed by Andy Borowitz



NASHUA, N.H. (The Borowitz Report)—Delivering a stirring populist message at a campaign appearance in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton vowed that as President she would help everyday Americans obtain large cash payments from foreign governments.

“Like a lot of everyday Americans, many of you are struggling to pay your bills,” she told an audience here. “As President, I will work tirelessly to help you make ends meet—by getting foreign governments to pay you.”

“In cold, hard cash,” she added, to a standing ovation.
Growing emotional, the former Secretary of State spoke of the “transformative power of foreign money,” calling it “nothing short of magical.”

“I’ve seen up close how large sums of foreign currency can change people’s lives,” she said. “And I will not rest until every middle-class American partakes of the riches of the Emirates.”

Clinton said that she and she alone was qualified to disgorge heaps of cash from foreign governments, and took a swipe at two of her Republican rivals.

“Do you honestly think Ted Cruz could pry loose any Moroccan money—or Rand Paul?” she asked. “Come on. No one in Morocco knows those losers.”

Heinous Waste of Money officially begins ---Musings on the election fights by Andy Borowitz



WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The two major political parties’ unconscionable waste of money officially commences this weekend, as Democrats and Republicans will soon begin spending an estimated five billion dollars of their corporate puppet masters’ assets in an unquenchable pursuit of power.

The billions, which could be spent rebuilding the nation’s crumbling infrastructure, improving schools, or reducing the scourge of malaria in Africa, will instead be squandered in a heinous free-for-all of slander and personal destruction, alienating voters as never before.

The media will inevitably focus on the personalities of the bloated roster of narcissists lusting after the White House, but scant attention will be paid to the Wall Street bankers, industrial polluters, and casino magnates whose grip on American democracy will remain vise-like.

While attention this weekend turns to the Democrats, the Republicans remain quietly confident about their chances of purchasing the nation’s highest office. In the words of one top operative, “Our billionaires can beat their billionaires.”

Fill'er up in Mississippi? I did - and then gratefully moved on. Gas station photo


SELMA - 4 days ago I saw the bridge and walked around the block - come with me and see

My doorbell rang and 2 friends said they were leaving for NOLA and for me to have a happy Easter. I said: Why tell me now?
They said: You want to come? I asked: Can you give me 40 min?

Our first stop was Selma.
I want to take you on the bridge and then for a walk around the block.

It was my first time there, and other than talking to the person at the cash register at the drug store (watch for a sign you thought you may never see again) I can’t tell you much. She was still aglow about the excitement of President Obama’s visit for the anniversary of the march a couple of weeks back. And about all the stores being closed, and snipers being on the roofs. That did not surprise me, and made me feel good about the Secret Service for the first time in a while.

My photos are of the area walking within a block from the bridge, the town as a whole is incredible impoverished looking as I watch the roads in and out of it. I live in the South, and I know about deserted and poor. Sadly, this was extra sad.

Beautiful buildings with good bonesl structures. Empty and forlorn. They could be bought for an out of tune song and refurbished but then they would be built up, and nobody could afford to come.

I was happy to be in Selma, happy to see the history. Sad about the state of the town and feeling like a stranger in a strange land.

Starting with the bridge








to looking down from it on both sides



to the actual walk around the block





















throwing in this last one, because it was such a surprise to find Edgar Cayce in the mix of Selma's former inhabitants.
It is inspiring me to re-visit the Cayce Institute in Virginia Beach.
My companions thought it a good idea, so, as Rachel would say: Watch this space.


A timely quote from an unexpected source: r.e. Indiana's legal follies

"Let's be 100-percent clear: Indiana's brand new Religious Freedom Law is a measure that fell off the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down. And I say that as not only a conservative, but a religious conservative."

Jake Novak, supervising producer of Power Lunch, CNBC
