“But, Senator, please, you know, enough of this seeking every opportunity to demean law enforcement broadly by making the accusation of implicit bias every time tragedy occurs.”

LAMESTREAM MEDIA RELEASE: At Sarah Palin’s School of Public Speaking, Mr. Donald Trump is our star celebrity student.

Head Governess Sarah Palin has this to say of Donald Trump’s speaking skills;

“He is a fast learner with temper mints, you betcha! We learned him real fast! Good thing he stayed away from her Katie Couric, she does the gotcha questions like always. That’s why I say, I, like every Trumpet I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the tax payers looking to bail out, but ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping thugh, it’s got to be all about job creation too, shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track, so healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans.”

TRUMP ADMITS HE PAYS NO TAX

During the first presidential debate Hillary Clinton struck what may be the fatal blow to Donald Trump’s campaign by getting him to admit that he does not pay any federal income tax.

During a lively exchange Clinton decided to turn the spotlight on Trump’s income tax returns, which he has refused to reveal.

Clinton proposed that maybe Trump “doesn’t want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he’s paid nothing in federal taxes, because the only years that anybody’s ever seen were a couple of years when he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license, and they showed he didn’t pay any federal income tax.”

Instead of denying the allegation that he habitually avoids paying income tax, Trump decided to brandish income tax-dodging as a badge of honour and quickly shot back “That makes me smart.”

It remains a mystery why no mainstream news outlets have this in the headlines. Only a few years ago such a revelation would have been the death knell for any political campaign.

Killing Nemo

Children’s cinema has a way of portraying the world’s environment in wonderful balance. Adorable talking wild animals, thriving in lush forests and jungles. A planet with expansive colourful oceans of abundant clear clean water.

Meanwhile back in the real world, Earth’s climate deteriorates before our eyes (for those brave enough to take an honest look), whilst grownups convince themselves that technological advances will protect “the ecological and the economic well-being of the planet”.
