“Every time I said something, she would say something back,” he said. “It was rigged.”

Per teh Borowitz Report:


Trump blasted the format of Monday night’s debate by claiming that the presence of Clinton was “specifically designed” to distract him from delivering his message to the American people.

“Every time I said something, she would say something back,” he said. “It was rigged.”

He also lambasted the “underhanded tactics” his opponent used during the debate. “She kept on bringing up things I said or did,” he added. “She is a very nasty person.”

Turning to CNN, Trump criticized the network’s use of a split screen showing both him and Clinton throughout the telecast. “It should have been just me,” he said. “That way people could have seen how really good my temperament is.”

Boycott Nestle, Says Petition After Company Outbids Town For Water

A Nestlé spokesman said the company didn't know it was competing with a municipality, but it nevertheless matched their offer to complete the purchase from the Middlebrook Water Company for "future business growth."

"In the middle of a severe drought in southern Ontario, bottled water giant Nestlé continues to extract four million litres of groundwater every day from an aquifer near Guelph," the declaration says.

"Nestlé pays less than $15 per day for this precious resource and then ships it out of the community in hundreds of millions of single use plastic bottles for sale all over North America — at an astronomical mark up."

The group is asking people who support the boycott to sign an online declaration that aims to stop Nestlé from profiting from bottled water.

Florida, under....Bush????? gave Nestle drawing rights to its huge aquifer years ago. For pennies.

Nestle' is YUUUUGE.

I try very hard not to buy their stuff, basically we have stopped using a LOT of processed products.

More details on Burlington Mall killer

BURLINGTON, Skagit County — Tips and surveillance video led to the arrest of a 20-year-old Oak Harbor man in connection with Friday’s deadly shooting at the Cascade Mall, authorities said Saturday night.
The suspect, identified as Arcan Cetin, was arrested Saturday evening as he walked along a street in Oak Harbor. Cetin will be turned over to the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office, according to Island County authorities.


Skagit County court records show Cetin has a criminal record that included three domestic-violence assault charges in both Burlington and Island County, with the victim identified as Cetin’s stepfather. He also was arrested for drunken driving.

Island County District Court records show that Cetin was told by a judge on Dec. 29 that he was not to possess a firearm.

A couple years ago, Marty Baldwin said he allowed the suspected gunman, who was homeless at the time, to move in with him and his wife. But Baldwin kicked him out a few months later after learning the younger man was using and selling drugs, he said

Just read there are promising results from dandelion root to kill cancer cells.

Something you might want to google.

In Europe, they are finding good results in the lab animals, and are planning on doing human trials.
Seems effective for many cancers but NOT breast cancer, in fact may increase estrogen, which we do not want in most breast cancers.

The good news is that dandelion root is ever so cheaply available as capsules in the health food stores
( My personal favorite way of buying vitamins and supplements is iherb.com)

Another pronouncement from the orange man...

Remember the fuel shortage of early 1970's? This was a proposed solution.

Note the mpg they are bragging about....

President Obama wishes to reminds us of this:

Cable News Silent as Two States Declare Emergency After Pipeline Spill

More than a quarter million gallons of gasoline have spilled in Shelby County, Alabama, after a major fuel pipeline ruptured this week. While the spill has received attention from local media outlets, national cable news networks have largely ignored the story.

According to local media, the fuel line, which carries refined gasoline from Houston to the East Coast, has leaked roughly 6,000 barrels of gasoline since Monday. The leak is expected to drive up fuel prices across the Southeast, and the governors of both Alabama and Georgia have declared official state emergencies, preparing residents for fuel shortages.

“Based on current projections and consultations with industry partners, parts of Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina will be the first markets to be impacted by any potential disruption in supply,” the company stated.
