For those of you who have been following the most recent articles regarding Obama's tenure such as. The Obama Doctrine http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2016/04/the-obama-doctrine/471525/ and
How Hillary Clinton Became a Hawk - The New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/24/magazine/how-hillary-clinton-became-a-hawk.html

Here is an article that gives an amazing background view of Obama's foreign policy. This article seems to show the construction of an almost Orwellian narrative Reminds me of Bush's aides who claimed they create the reality.

As an aside there is an incidental quote that seems to especially apply to today's election "They elect those who they are going to believe." The issues don't seem to have as much influence as the perceived believability of the candidate. Suggests why Trump might appeal and why Hillary's "untrustworthiness" could be a problem.

Great new album by Santana. Some of the lyrics are a little cringe worthy as one commenter noted but many good songs here. Stream the album here.

The reunion of Carlos Santana's mid-'70s-era band captures the musicians' intense chemistry, while still updating the massively influential sound they created.

The best article on the effects of Authoritarianism on U.S. politics I've seen. The Republican party may well split over the rise of this constituency. It also explains why Fox News and Republicans in general are so quick to use fear in their campaigns.

A niche group of political scientists may have uncovered what's driving Donald Trump's ascent. What they found has implications that go well beyond 2016.

1. Bingo!
2. Scary!
3. Ironic! If enough people become fearful of the threat of
Authoritarianism, what will we call the outcome?

@nedgar it's illustrating the upward trend. The fact that some years are cool isn't important, it's that the max temp is increasing. Jesse McNelis. May 9. Jesse McNelis @jessemcnelis. @nedgar and that the rate the max temp is increasing is increasing.

Ultramarathoners can train for years and still get sidelined by blisters. Stanford researchers tested paper surgical tape during a 155-mile race and found it reduces blisters by 40 percent.

Again and again I see Elizabeth Warren as the most articulate, active and informed person is politics today. Watch her destroy a bank regulator who refused to regulate banks

Republicans held a Senate hearing on the cost of regulating big banks. Elizabeth Warren turned that on it's head and examined the cost to everyday Americans of NOT regulating big banks. Watch the video here.
