Trump appeals to the baseness of disgruntle US citizens mainly European decent who have damaged self esteem because they are no longer the White American revered as they were in the days of slavery. And that by brute force, today by guns . It Trump is elected there will be civil war everywhere. God help us.

In the last two decades or so, big strides have been made in artificial intelligence - here's the deal yhoo.it/1rovamA

Think personal assistant devices and apps like Alexa, Cortana and Siri, web search predictions, movie suggestions on Netflix

She’s a groundbreaking celebrity in Afghanistan; at the ripe-old age of 6, she’s breaking down boundaries on television and speaking to children there about education, exercise and peace. She just made her silver screen debut and has already met with the country’s first lady.

Perhaps if the racist dogs did not hound him as the breathe they breathe the country would be in better shape. But of course they would probably blame President Obama for their racist bigoted attitudes also which resulted also in your mind controlled comments.

On April 16, Pope Francis visited a refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos, where over half a million refugees — primarily from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq — found refuge in 2015 alone. And the pope did not return home empty-handed. He brought 12 Syrian migrants, including six children, back to Italy with him. I spoke with four of them while in Rome. http://yhoo.it/24qSfU1
“It was like Alice,” said one Syrian refugee. “Alice in Wonderland!”
