The Trump speech at the United Nations was a walk-off grand slam home-run. And I don’t even like baseball. I thought I was watching Big Papi!
But enough already. I feel like a darn Yo-Yo – or maybe Michael Corleone, from the Godfather 3. “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”
No, I’m not talking about the Mafia. I’m referring to my support of President Trump.
I’ve said at least a few times that I’ve developed shin splints as a result of jumping off and back on the Trump bandwagon. He’ll do or say something positive or constructive for the nation, and then follow it up a day or two later with something dopey – or vice versa.
This time around, he did something dopey, i.e., meeting with Schumer and Pelosi. I don’t care how clever you think Trump is – you don’t make deals with the devil(s) – nor do you even agree to meet with them. You don’t lend those two any legitimacy of any kind – ever. For his dalliance with the two democrats, I said I had one foot on and one off the Trump bandwagon.
Then he turns around and gives a speech for the ages at the United Nations – one that should swell the hearts of Americans who are sick and tired of the United States kowtowing to the despots and dictators who populate the U.N.
In 2015, the Royal Navy released its concept of the surface warship of 2050. Now the RN is casting its crystal ball beyond 2050 by asking a team of young engineers from UKNEST to develop concepts for future British submarines. With designs that mimic sea animals, the manned and unmanned concept undersea vessels are intended to handle a variety of tasks in a future world experiencing intense competition between nations for ocean resources.
A police officer, though scheduled for all-night duty at the station, was relieved of duty early and arrived home four hours ahead of schedule, at 2 in the morning.
Not wanting to wake his wife, he undressed in the dark, crept into the bedroom and started to climb into bed. Just then, his wife sleepily sat up and said, “Mike, dearest, would you go down to the all-night drug store on the next block and get me some aspirin? I’ve got a splitting headache.”

It seems that one of the Kardashian family is hitting back at “fat shamers.” “Khloe Kardashian was incensed as she was met with a barrage of abuse on Sunday by cruel social media trolls, who accused her of wearing baggy clothes to hide her recent weight gain,” writes the Daily Mail.
In case you are unfamiliar, I will attempt to explain – although I don’t keep up with this crap either. I believe fat shaming is the practice of taking to social media to complain about, draw attention to, or make fun of someone famous, who has gained weight, is naturally rotund, or just kind of normal looking.
It most often happens to females of Hollywood . Evidently, the comedian, Amy Schumer has been repeatedly “fat shamed” by social media trolls. Although I don’t care for her comedy and can’t stand her leftist politics, she appears to be “normal” looking. But she’s a comedian, not a model. Unlike the Kardashians, she didn’t become famous by virtue of looks alone. Schumer looks lime a normal American woman – not like the plasticized Barbies that Americans are evidently enamored with. And heck – now that I think about it – most supposedly “perfect” starlets and models aren’t perfect at all. Most of what we see is, to some extent, photoshopped to wipe away their imperfections.
It’s all phony, which is why, at least for me, this story leaped off the screen. It’s the rich irony that one of supposed beautiful people, could be assailed by her followers so easily. But hey – you reap what you sow.
The fat found in fast food can help protect against the deadliest form of skin cancer, a study claims.
Experts found that palmitic acid, which is in products such as burgers and cookies, fuels a protein involved in the pigmentation process to help protect against harmful skin cancer mutations.
While fast food can have harmful effects on the heart and brain, it could prevent melanoma, a deadly skin cancer.
Rates of people being diagnosed with melanoma have increased the past 30 years in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates close to 10,000 people will die from the cancer this year.
Experts said this breakthrough in research could lead to a drug for those who are red hair, fair skinned or have consistently tanned, all of whom are more at risk to get skin cancer.
The nation is all a atwitter over this apparent Trump-Schumer-Pelosi triumvirate.
I was personally disappointed that Trump even met with the two dirt dealers. Nothing productive could come of it. And herein lies the problem: We don’t know what was said or agreed upon, yet everyone has an opinion – but based on what?
