I won't waste your time trying to use Feeling Poorlygate as an excuse to play amateur doctor ---- plenty of people in the basket of deplorables are doing that already ---- because here's the sagacious bottom line:
IN THE SPOTLIGHT
How refreshing it is, after weeks and months of faux Clinton Foundation "scandals," after all the fatuous media talk about "optics" and "perceptions," to finally have a real Foundation scandal to chew on. An actual example of pay-to-play, of money given and a favor granted. And it comes to u…
Long ago, a Spaniard accidentally hit a continent. The displacement and murder of the continent’s indigenous people began and continued for years as the New World filled with colonies, states, and later became a country. All those who were displaced, enslaved, or killed Native Americans were…

According to the Washington Post, prestigious Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn., is finally going to act on its long-held desire to delete the word "Confederate" from the inscription atop the columned entrance to Confederate Memorial Hall dormitory.
Don't answer out loud if you're reading this at work, but how do you feel about employers using sensor-bearing armbands and other "wearable" tech to monitor employee performance?
As I was wondering why lemon juices are made with artificial flavors while dish-washing liquid is made with real lemons, this other wonder grabbed me by the throat.
Unlike their Republican counterparts, Democrats tend not to wallow in the sewer with infantile chants like “Lock Her Up.” Instead, they simply whacked Donald Trump with substance throughout their four day convention in Philadelphia.
