Hillary Clinton: One morning many years ago,( I think it was 1998) I was upgraded for free to first class on a Hawaiian Airlines flight to Honolulu and was seated next to a movie producer that actually smelled like oatmeal and looked like an Annie Oakley impersonator, all straw colored hair and a face full on freckles. I remembered this particular flight for the upgrade and because when I jokingly asked the her if she was wearing an oatmeal perfume and in response, she gave me new information. It was soap made with oatmeal. At the time I had no idea that such a product existed. Anyhow, she and I started talking politics about Hillary and Bill and their TV appearance that morning on a sofa next to Bill affirming her support for him during the impeachment proceedings concerning his liaison with Monica Lewinsky. It was such a publicly demeaning and humiliating position for her to take I wondered out loud to the movie producer next to me if she too thought that Hillary had traded her support for Bill in the present crisis for his support in her later bid for the presidency. She answered affirmatively that she thought that was probably the case and we both sat, gob-smacked and speechless for the rest of the short flight. It seemed clear to us both that Hillary Clinton would endure any pain and humiliation she encountered to reach her goal.
So I have some long held background and opinions around the idea and issues of the Clintons and the presidency. For political junkies like me "Hillary Knows Best" is like a reality show in which we all take part. We imagine that we are part of the narrative instead of the reality, but we are just the marks, swindled out of our democracy by the corruption on the right and the left. For myself, I have never really favored Hillary as a candidate. I have looked upon her candidacy negatively primarily on the principal that we are not a monarchy and should not have marriage based nepotism or any type of nepotism be the primary factor by which a candidate gains access to the election process for the presidency or any other office in America. Besides being a Republican I opposed the son George Bush and the son Jeb Bush candidacy by Royal Family Nepotism on the same issue.
I am a lifelong Democrat and have never voted for a Republican. Even once. There have been however, elections in which I have not voted. All those considerations aside I am going to vote for Hillary because I see Donald Trump as being unfit for purpose. He just is scary and bat-shit crazy. He lies like a rug, changes his policies at the drop of a Tea Party hanky, and is unsuitably ignorant. And despite what he says Trump does not appear to have "a very good mind!" No way Jose' do we want this fool to take charge of our economy or security. You can't trust him to even do what he says.
Nope, exigencies take precedence and I'm not a dope, I'll vote for Hillary this time unless she decides that Tim Kaine will be her running mate. I want Elizabeth Warren to be her Vice President. She will likely win with Elizabeth Warren by attracting the Bernie folks and women. Tim Kaine is just more of the same old shit that folks are tired of and frustrated by. Hillary won't win with Tim Kaine. Elizabeth is a better choice strategically and righteously. Tim Kaine is not a "righteous" choice. Please take the righteous road Hillary!
BTW Big Bill is back in the news today perhaps trying somehow to boost her score and fulfill his promise. It has turned into another FU and will be distracting for the next week or so apparently. Loretta Lynch, Bill Clinton meeting raises eyebrows
Chris Mathews: Way, Waaay past his "sell by date" Chris Matthews should retire in a comparative good light instead of opening his mouth and convincing many of the viewers that he is a ridiculous dingbat! BTW, Chris it is sometimes okay to be a Young Dingbat, but an old one is just a ridiculous old fool. No link, just go watch one of his shows. Sad.
Michael Phelps sure is hurting from smoking all that weed back in the day. Yep, 31 years old and beating 18 year old swimmers. He really screwed up making it all this way to his 5th olympics. Michael Phelps wins 200 butterfly to qualify for fifth Olympics
RUSSIA and USA: BFFs? My predication today is the same as it was a year ago. Does water run downhill? Russia and the USA will cooperate to solve the troubles in Syria. Here is the start of a good relationship with our former enemies: Obama proposes new military partnership with Russia in Syria

This is an event that will impact global politics bigtime. It is amusing to observe that the voters in Britain that voted to leave the union were primarily old, uneducated, white, and disfranchised economically are just like the Trump Chumps we see in America. It was mostly younger voters that wanted to remain in the EU.
We don't know in Hawaii how the British exit will affect us. Assuming it will be similar to the ways it will impact the mainland it will be major. The American stock market has taken a negative downturn as it has done across the globe. The mortgage market will take a downturn in the near future but long term nobody knows. Hide and watch.
Why are we risking the health of our citizen athletes by going to the Olympics in Brazil? It is so silly and stupid, risking global health by shuttling in athletes from all over the world to go to Brazil and compete. What is that all about. Money. Just the international media dollars to be harvested alone are mega-billions. Who cares if citizens across the earth risk the health of newborns and whatever else will come along with the ZIKA EPIDEMIC. Listen you money grubbing assholes. Stop the event. Cancel the Olympics. Deal with now before your moneygrubbing greed cause a full scale worldwide epidemic!
