Miss Universe 'fat-shamed' by Donald Trump was accused of threatening to kill a judge and being an accomplice to MURDER in her native Venezuela We should push the news media and politicians, including candidates for the US Senate and US House, who make the laws, to address REAL issues like immigration, AIDS, homelessness, lack of good jobs, police killings, mass shootings by psychos, Zika, the epidemic of drug ODs, high and unfair taxes, voting rights for DC residents....little things like that. The mainstream, corporate news media are IGNORING the Libertarians and Greens, and FAILING to ask both ruling-class candidates questions about REAL issues. You members of the press corps have allowed the Presidential race to devolve into petty insults, gossip and betting on who is ahead in the polls today. We have a battle for President between a New York City real estate developer who agrees with his fellow New Yorker, the late hotel heiress Leona Helmsley, that "Only the Little People pay taxes," and an Ivy League lawyer who has problems with emails and with admitting mistakes--and whose close adviser, Sydney Blumenthal, started and spread the rumors that Barack Obama was not a US citizen during the 2008 Democratic primary to derail Obama and help Mrs. Clinton. No wonder many people do not "trust" the candidates! Regarding lawyers and real estate developers: It is common in music, film, TV, Broadway and other creative arts, and in sports, for lawyers and accountants to "legally" steal money from those who create, entertain, play ball and do the real work. The lawyers and "business managers" pad expenses and siphon off $ to themselves and their buddies to make it look like the enterprise is losing $, so as to cheat the creative people and the singers, actors, musicians, and workers. Kind of like what many real estate developers do to banks, building contractors, and buyers of their projects: leave them "holding the bag" by using corporate bankruptcy laws to dissolve their development company after looting all the cash and funneling it to their family, friends and associates. This also happens in corporate life, one example being Enron, where lifelong employees were left without pensions after the CEO and CFO looted the cash and left their workers with useless stock. After stashing their "ill-gotten gains," the lawyers and real estate developers can relax and savor the pleasures of a truly fine cigar. My friends, I am speaking of the fine El Presidente' Cigar, with its latex tip to protect against exposure to disease-infested bodily fluids, in these troubled times of AIDS, Ebola and now, Zika. For the lovely ladies, there is the fine Elle Monica Cigar, a bit more petite and feminine than the "King-Sized," massively-endowed El Presidente' fine cigar. My friends, I don't always smoke, but when I do, I smoke El Presidente'..... El Presidente' and Elle Monica fine cigars: "Safe Sex, Safe Smoke."

Venezuelan Alicia Machado was Miss Universe in 1996 when Trump told her to lose weight. But now her past has surfaced including claims of crime before she moved to the U.S.

This is the main reason The Donald did not pick Chris Christie for VP. Mr. Trump, as a successful New York City-Atlantic City-Las Vegas-DC real estate developer knows all about bribing city officials for zoning exemptions, getting tax breaks for his real estate developments, and giving bribes and kickbacks to city and state officials. "It takes one to know one." "Mr. Big Stuff"  KNEW that Chris Christie was doing the same thing. But The Donald did it as a private developer, Chris Christie did it as a public official, which is far worse. He betrayed the public trust and used taxpayer $ for his own political purposes. Governor Chris Christie will need to resign and face criminal charges over this issue. Sad, because I like the guy, but the law is the law.

Dear former Secretary Clinton, Mr. Trump, Gary Johnson, Dr. Jill Stein, and Mr. President of Mexico, and ALL current and future members of the US Senate and the US House of Representatives:
What do you plan to do about Zika? Please read the following letter about this deadly disease:
"Dear friends at National Nurses United,
Thanks for taking action against dangerous, contagious diseases like Zika. I feel that Ebola is still a serious potential threat, and has a much higher mortality rate, but Zika seems to be spreading fast in the Western hemisphere and is an immediate danger to all of us. Zika causes encephalitis and brain-nerve damage in adults as well as in embryos, and I suspect many cases of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease are cause by viral infections. The sad cases of Zika-infected moms giving birth to babies with severe, irreversible brain damage are hitting us here in the mainland USA now. May I suggest that everyone who tests positive for Zika be quarantined for at least 30 days, because ONE person who is infected with Zika can spread it to their entire neighborhood if bitten by a mosquito which bites the neighbors. The real danger is from people who carry the Zika virus, not from mosquitoes. Unless there is an infected person in the immediate neighborhood, mosquitoes cannot transmit Zika. Zika was first "discovered" in Uganda in 1947, and brought to Brazil a few years ago by a Zika-infected African soccer fan attending World Cup games in Brazil. Zika has spread rapidly throughout Brazil since that time, and is now widespread in Puerto Rico and quickly spreading in Florida, and probably soon in other Gulf states.
Have a nice Labor Day weekend cookout, but watch out for those mosquitoes!
Gary J. Minter"
Parts of Africa and the Asia-Pacific region may be vulnerable to outbreaks of the Zika virus, including some of the world's most populous countries and many with limited resources to identify and respond to the mosquito-borne disease, a new study says.

None of these good folks are voting for me, either, so you're not alone, Mr. Trump. The Republican debates did look like a TV ad for the Men's Wearhouse HALF OFF sale on Navy Blue suits with matching red or blue patriotic ties, so may I suggest, Mr. Trump, that you purchase, or at least rent, a nice tuxedo for your TV debates with Mrs. Hillary Clinton? A nice aqua or pink or perhaps Canary yellow tux would contrast with Mrs. Clinton's orange pantsuits. Be sure to return the tux to the shop within 48 hours to avoid late fees!
The ranks of Republicans opposing their party's nominee are growing.

I have suggested a 30-day quarantine for those testing positive for Zika, to give the immune system time to fight the virus and lower viral levels in the blood, so if they are bitten by a mosquito, the risk of transmission to someone else will be much lower. HIV is similar: it is highly contagious sexually (about one out of three sex acts will transmit HIV) during "primary" or early infection, later on, when the immune system has suppressed HIV, the risk of transmission is very low.
The CDC has invited "public comment" on a disturbing edict that would allow it to quarantine entire geographic areas of the US, restrict the movement & behavior of people in these areas, and r...

Very sad. Mariah should help her find a decent place to live, at least, and give her a small monthly allowance to pay for her crack or whatever drug she uses so she won't have to prostitute for her drugs. She could get HIV or another STD. Unlike the rest of us po' folks, Mariah Carey has plenty of money to help her own family.

Zika, like Ebola, SARS, MERS, Avian flu, Hantavirus, and many other viral diseases is "airborne": it can be spread by coughing, sneezing, spitting, kissing, sex, mosquito bites (and likely ticks and bedbugs), eating food contaminated by a diseased person, and other "casual" contact, as opposed to direct sexual, bite or blood contact needed to transmit HIV, viral hepatitis, HPV, genital herpes, syphilis, and rabies (though there is evidence that rabies can be transmitted via the air in close quarters, e.g. in caves). Because Zika and Ebola are spread so easily and quickly, they could quickly become epidemic in any given area. All it takes is ONE infected person to start the epidemic. I suggest quarantining anyone suspected of having Zika or Ebola for at least 30 days, until the immune system can suppress the virus enough to lower the risk of transmission. In the case of HIV and syphilis, the period right after initial infection, when "primary" symptoms occur, is highly contagious, then the immune system suppresses HIV to a much lower level and the risk of transmission is very low. People with HIV or other immune-system compromising conditions are at higher risk for other diseases.
The cases, in Miami-Dade County, are the first in the continental United States that were not contracted through travel abroad or sex with an infected partner.
