Today, I spoke with a dear friend who said, "When Hillary wins, Bill will be First Gentleman !"


Former president, William Jefferson Clinton, came to 'our community' recently  - now, let's be honest, what's the first thing we think of when we hear Bill's name:

  Infidelity? The disappearing cigar? the stain on Monica's blue dress? Fellatio? "I did not have sexual relations with that woman... "  "It Depends on what the meaning of the word is is" ???
 I'm still surprised at how so many people want to get close to him, especially women. I'm not taking a moral high-ground all, but, I just don't get it. I understand all relationships are different...I know people who have open-marriages , 3 ways, etc. ..
but,let me take you back to 1992 :


Bill Clinton: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You're looking at two people who love each other. This is not an arrangement or an understanding. This is a marriage. That's a very different thing.

Hillary Clinton: You know, I'm not sitting here – some little woman standing by my man like Tammy Wynette. I'm sitting here because I love him, and I respect him, and I honor what he's been through and what we've been through together. And you know, if that's not enough for people, then heck, don't vote for him.

I remember the interview , and , my reaction - that's right, these people are attacking them...why???  Hillary  said   I love him, and I respect him, and I honor what he's been through and what we've been through together YEAH! Well, that was then, but, hey, again, this isn't about Hillary.

My guess is that most people who've been victimised by a cheating spouse feels that the whole world knows . . . in this case, the WHOLE WORLD learned the truth. I'm not naive, of course people can get involved with someONE outside of their relationship, and, im some cases, fall in love with someone outside of their marriage, but, the Bill thing is different. His liaisons(see how nice I'm being) weren't about relationship...let's be honest, Bill was looking for pretty ladies to satisfy him, get him get a laugh out of doing the 'disappearing cigar trick' and lighting 'her' up later...

but, yeah, come on, let's forget about all that, after all, it's about what is said, not what is done!

Soon, H.Clinton and D. Trump will debate,again.


So, here's a glimpse of America:

On almost every element, the United States ranks behind most of the other countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, or OECD. We rank:

The U.S. education system is mediocre compared to the rest of the world, according to an international ranking of OECD countries.

More than half a million 15-year-olds around the world took the Programme for International Student Assessment in 2012. The test, which is administered every three years and focuses largely on math, but includes minor sections in science and reading, is often used as a snapshot of the global state of education. The results, published today, show the U.S. trailing behind educational powerhouses like Korea and Finland.

The U.S. ranks 14th in education

6 January 2015

According to Pearson, the United States has a “cognitive skills and educational attainment” score of 0.39, which makes the United States rank fourteenth out of forty countries ranked in that category. The top ten countries (and their scores) are:


South Korea (1.30)

Japan (1.03)

Singapore (0.99)

Hong Kong (0.96)

Finland (0.92)

United Kingdom (0.67)

Canada (0.60)

Netherlands (0.58)

Ireland (0.51)

Poland (0.50)


 The United States has the highest rate of youth homicides and suicides among the 26 wealthiest nations.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Rates of homicide, suicide, and firearm-related death among children: 26 industrialized countries.

More people have died in Chicago in 2016 so far than died in armed conflict in Somalia over the entire course of 2015, according to statistics from an Amnesty International annual report.



...The human rights watchdog reported that “over 500 people were killed or injured by armed conflict and generalized violence” in Somalia 2015 amid continued conflict between “Somali Federal Government (SFG) forces, African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) peacekeepers, and the armed group al-Shabaab in central and southern Somalia.”



In Chicago, in roughly the three-quarters of 2016 alone, over 520 people have been murdered. DNAInfo puts the exact number at 524, while the Chicago Tribune has recorded 530 homicides.


"....An overwhelming majority of voters are unhappy with Congress, which nearly a year into its new leadership is stuck with an approval rating of 13 percent."


....and, now, back to where the majority of the media, the new wizards of OZ -  the don't look behind the curtain crowd -  wants us,U.S. to focus on:

 dirty Donald 'locker-room talk, Don  braggadocio.
