a 'once in a lifetime' candidate

"...Did Hillary Clinton possess the wisdom of Bernie Sanders, at a time America needed a leading Democrat to counter the neocons in Bush's administration?

Clinton might be "wicked smart," like President Obama states, but Bernie Sanders possesses wisdom. Wisdom and intelligence are different, and if you confuse the two, you're stuck with an endless stream of politicians like Hillary Clinton. With Bernie Sanders, America will get someone who makes decisions based upon principle and value system, not political expediency and evolution..."

*The time is now*
In a world of American media displaying never-ending coverage of ISIS beheadings, how many politicians say "I'll be damned" if Americans lead the fight against ISIS? Bernie Sanders is the only pr...

A 4-year-old Harris County boy died after shooting himself in the head Tuesday, adding to a toll that's become the second leading cause of accidental death for children in Harris County. Two minors have already died from accidental gunshots in 2016 - Bryson Hernandez, who shot himself in the head at his grandparents' Cypress-area home early Tuesday, and a 15-year-old who was shot by his older brother on Jan. 16 in southwest Houston.

Trump Disses Disabled Vets, Pockets $5M Raised To Help
In an act astonishingly vile for even someone like Donald Trump, 100% of donations made through Trump's pro-veterans web site will go directly to Trump's personal foundation, rather than to help vets as Trump had promised. 

"After ducking the final Republican presidential debate heading into next week’s Iowa caucuses, GOP front-runner Donald Trump announced that he would hold his own pro-veterans event during the debate to raise money for veterans. Trump even set up a special website to solicit donations to help veterans.

“Honor their valor,” the website, donaldtrumpforvets.com, states. “Donate now to help our Veterans.”

"The website, which is nothing more than a single page with stock photos and a credit card donation form, claims that “100% of your donations will go directly to Veterans needs.”

"There’s only one problem: 100% of the money raised on the site goes directly to Donald Trump’s personal non-profit foundation, according to a disclosure listed at the bottom of the page." [1]

Does Trump really care about vets? From 2009 to 2013, Trump's foundation only gave $57,000 to veterans groups. Maybe the $5M will get to vets -- or not. Who knows? What we do know is this:

"Trump's national spokesperson couldn't name a single veterans' organization that will receive the money from his fundraiser." [2]

We also know that Trump does not care for vets trying to make a living as vendors near his gleaming towers of self-promotion on Fifth Ave.

""While disabled veterans should be given every opportunity to earn a living, is it fair to do so to the detriment of the city as a whole or its tax paying citizens and businesses?,” Trump wrote back in 1991 to the New York State legislature, in an attempt to ban street vendors with special disabled veteran’s licenses from Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue."

Vets get special vendor licenses in NYC in thanks for their military service. This provision dates back to 1894 and was created to give those disabled during the Civil War a chance to support themselves. 

Trump one commented that vets are “treated like third-class citizens.” He should know.

We have had nothing but problems with this place. After having a procedure done they placed a vile of my blood in my girl friends take home bag. When I got home we realized what they had done and called them to see what I should do. They had no procedure in place for the handling of biohazardous material if it landed in the hands of the patient. They told us to bring it back down. Now my girl friend doesn't have a car so she needed to set up time with friends to drive her down there. They also had her driving back and forth between the Ann Arbor clinic and brighton clinic. We were treated extremely rudely by the manager when we said we wanted compensation for the problems that Planned Parenthood had caused us. Forward three weeks of them trying to sweep this under the rug and the most they were willing to offer was 50 dollars. NEVER GO TO THIS PLACE FOR ANYTHING! They are incredibly rude when something goes wrong, they have no checks in place for clear HIPPA violations and force their patents to handle glass biohazardous materials if they make a mistake.
