It's a big travel weekend and when it comes to our transportation infrastructure, we've gotten a little off track. In fact, it could be reaching a breaking point. Here's why: yhoo.it/1Hnbr7n

The man behind the viral photo, Baltimore bishop M. Cromartie, urges rioters to get off the streets and "follow the cause and protest peacefully" http://yhoo.it/1zeFjoT
Bishop M. Cromartie of Baltimore’s Prophetic Deliverance Ministries has had enough of the violence and rioting in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray. The bishop, who says he saw his own cousin killed by police in 2002, told Yahoo News that it’s his mission to keep kids off the streets and spread the message that it’s OK to protest but not OK to start riots.

I think she would make a Great President! Her problem is there are so many running for Republican President it will splinter the voters which will allow the worst person ever to be President become President! I won't mention her name! Republicans need to Unite now and support Carly Fiorina!! ;-)

There's a major food fight going on over GMOs, but why all the hoopla over what we harvest? http://yhoo.it/1HZsWyn
GMOs — or genetically modified organisms — were in the spotlight again this past week following controversy at “The Dr. Oz Show” over, among other things, the television host and doctor’s stance on GMOs. It sparked a media firestorm and had people picking sides.
