3 Juries about politics in 15 minutes?

Rough night.

All this talk about Bernie, Hillary and the pope?

What difference does it make?

It's funny as hell watching everyone annoy the crap out of each other over this one. What next, a visit to the Dali Lama?

Recycling Eyeglasses

I did some spring cleaning and have 14 pairs of old prescription glasses to be recycled (not all mine actually). The frames are in good to very good condition. Does anyone know if the Lions Club still recycles old prescription glasses?

Can we nominate a robot for president?

This way if the individual goes back on their word we just yank the batteries.

Flint Michigan; Water Purification

Bottled water my ass.

During hurricanes, national emergencies and even war; the National Guard has the ability to produce massive amounts of drinking water through a process called reverse osmosis purification. Drinking water is produced from river water and even sea water. What hasn't the government mobilized the National Guard to produce water locally for the residents of Flint? The politics of this lead poisoning is bullshit. Screw the national media for forgetting about these people.

BTW: Bottled water is produced in commercial plants via the reverse osmosis process; "spring water" comes from the ground. Typically food and beverage factories use reverse osmosis water treatment to treat any/all water coming into their plant for quality control purposes.

In past elections I see all the large media outlets, some unions and major politicians endorsing candidates.

Currently we have ice cream manufacturers, Hollywood personalities, music industry celebrities and Michael Moore "endorsing" candidates. Is the second list even significant? I've personally made my own decisions without caring about "endorsements". I'll listen to debates and discussions and take it all in, but the endorsement stuff seems to be more of an ego thing for the individual originating it.

Screw it; I'm officially nominating Al Bundy for POTUS this fall...................
