  1. ” Authorities have raided dozens of homes and arrested 12 suspects in a major antiterrorism investigation that ” demanded immediate action “.
    That’s all that was on a moving breaking news scroll on a local news station.
    Nothing on who/what authorities are involved.
    Going back to bed.
    Any bets not one muslim terrorist was raided/arrested?
    I say right wing Republican Trump supporters will be the spin.

  2. Here’s some photos of the happy Obama family on their western National Park vacation. See the children study the walkway as they go through the majestic Carlsbad Caverns, and note how they frolic through the high grass of Yosemite.
    Our fashion forward FLOTUS has the whole family dressed in similar colors of gray to show unity or to make identification easier if one of them wanders off. The hubby found an ancient pair of ‘mommy’ jeans to wear with an oversized gray shirt – yo, stylin’ it, Barry! A photo of the Obamas greeting park rangers in their ill-fitting uniforms was heart-warming.

    There’s no mention of the Obamas taking advantage of any of the national parks amenities or doing any hiking, fishing, or camping. It’s unknown if the WhiteHouse staffers remembered to purchase the necessary permits or passes to visit the parks, but since they didn’t plan to actually do anything there they might not have been mandatory.

  3. Apologies for the bad info this morning.
    Nursing a hangover, woke up for aspirins.
    I turn on tv, don’t like putting on full lights, and saw info about raids.
    Didn’t know it was in Brussels till I read srdem65’s post.

  4. So…Orlando nightclub shooting took place over 3 hours, and the shooter had time to call & text…

    Where the heck where the dozens of people trapped in the club bathrooms and why did they not organize and charge-attack the shooter (re: 9/11 “Let’s Roll”) over the course of the 3 hours..???

    Just curious…

  5. Ran out for some ice cream. On the way back had radio on and there is Obama scolding us about climate change. Not how beautiful the country is, how blessed we are, what a great country. Nope. A big scold.

    Never ever a word about water conservation when he plays golf in the desert and drought stricken
    California or elsewhere. Nary a word.

    If I had a lot of money I would build a professional community activist (HA) protest company. Every race color and creed would be employed. They would all be legal. They would follow Barack Obama and Michelle Obama everywhere. They would post the Sidwell friends’ menu each day and buy advertising that asks what did your kids’ school serve today? When they are at MV — I would warn against fats and salt — fats in ice cream, fat and salt on melted butter for Mooch’s lobster and corn on the cob. Everytime Mooch put something scorned in her maw we would send it out on Instagram. Every stupid scold that the Obamas use I would rub in their faces. They steal our joy. I would like to return the favor,
