Hillary Clinton Offers Little To Make New Impression in Iowa

When Hillary Clinton unsurprisingly announced that she would run for president earlier this week, she said she wanted to start small.

While hitting the road in Iowa, her first campaign stop, she stuck to her word. Scheduled events in Monticello and Norwalk, two farming communities, were closed to the public. Even behind closed doors, Clinton didn’t announce any major policy ideas beyond offering four “pillars” of her campaign: strengthening the economy, protecting the country from threats, strengthening family and community, and fixing a broken political campaign, promising that more details would come in the future, according to NPR.
Iowans wanted to see her up close, but that didn't happen.

How People Plot Their Escapes from Sexless Marriages

“The mistake was getting married.” That’s how the post begins. Under the handle forever monkey, the 40-year-old woman continues, “It took almost a month to consummate the marriage,” she writes. “We went from twice a month, to once a month, to twice a year, to once a year.” Eventually, she resorted to an affair. “We’ve had sex maybe 4 times since then, over a year and a half ago,” she says. “Here’s the thing: we are close. He holds my hand, he loves me, he does nice things for me. We have the same interests, we talk all the time. But i’m just sad, there’s this huge part that’s missing. The kids are almost grown. What do I do?”

My husband and I don't exactly have this problem, even nearing 50, we are both as attractive to each other as the day we met. We have almost no gay friends, so I don't know if this is something intrinsic to same-sex couples.

This is for those using the system flipping flights using owned paid seats as if it's yours; instead of using what you saved for building a plane to fly your passengers safely, work with your mind combining ideas instead of shooting down economic hidden issues.

10 Myths Many Religious People Hold About Atheists, Debunked

In a regular poll conducted by political scientists Robert Putnam and David Campbell on American political attitudes, atheists recently lost their spot as as the most disliked group in America to the Tea Party. Still, number two is simply way too high in the unpopularity rankings for a group of people who just happen to spend Sunday mornings in bed instead of in church. Polling data shows that nearly half of Americans would disapprove if their child married an atheist and nearly 40 percent of Americans don’t see atheists as sharing their vision of American society, numbers that outstripped similar prejudices toward Muslims and African Americans.
