Donald Trump to black voters: ‘What do you have to lose?’
For weeks, Donald Trump has argued he’s the candidate of black America, capable of changing the “hellish” conditions – crime, drugs, deadly gun violence – that afflict their communities. Unlike Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, Trump contends, he won’t take their votes for granted, and his pitch has its own catch phrase:
“What the hell have you got to lose?”
In the first presidential debate with Clinton, however, Trump’s recruitment of black voters – and, arguably, his attempts to court moderate whites uncomfortable with suggestions he’s a bigot – exploded on a minefield of pointed questions about his racially charged past.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has made a direct appeal to African-American voters, saying “What do you have to lose?”
Mr. Trump told a nearly all-white audience in Michigan that black voters “are living in poverty” and their “schools are no good”.
Star Wars Daywas officially first celebrated on May 4, 2011.
In fact, the holiday became so popular that starting in 2012, the next day was jokingly called “Revenge of the Fifth”, a pun on the Star Wars movie title Revenge of the Sith. It might also have something to do with that day being Cinco de Mayo, but to this day fans still like to let their “evil sides” come out the day after Star Wars Day.
When is Star Wars Day?
Star Wars Day is on May 4th every year, playing on the catchphrase “May the Force Be With You.”
The very next day, (as if one day isn’t enough), May 5th, Star Wars fans celebrate Revenge of the Fifth, reserved for those who celebrate the dark side. It’s a play on the title of the third Star Wars movie Revenge of the Sith.
Is It Revenge Of The Fifth or 6th?
People often get confused because the day after May 4th is not only Cinco de Mayo but “Revenge of the Fifth“.
Sometimes it is celebrated on May the 6th because people skip over the 5th for Cinco de Mayo.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, the Christian conservative reality-TV stars from TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting say their son Josh Duggar “violated God’s principle” when he sexually molested four of his sisters and a family friend when he was a teenager.
The couple and two of Josh’s sisters, who were also victims, spoke for the first time since allegations against Josh Duggar broke.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
March 2002: The 33-page police report reveals that Jim Bob Duggar tells police his son admits he fondled the breasts and genitals of several victims while they were sleeping in the family’s home, and that similar incidents happened four to five times.
This has me terribly concerned. I saw this come through the social media feeds this morning.
~Secret Island Ebola Death Camps~
The main island of Puerto Rico is the smallest and most eastern of the Greater Antilles. With an area of 3,515 square miles (9,104 km2), it is the third largest island in the United States and the 82nd largest island in the world.
This hits right home for several reasons. I lived in Puerto Rico for most of my life. I was born and raised there. I had a long professional career as a physician with the Veterans Administration which I began in 1985 and retired from in 2013. The connection with the San Juan VA Hospital is “parent hospital/facility for tertiary care” of the veterans in the Island. To this day, this is the only hospital available for the veterans in Puerto Rico. There are other medical facilities around the Island: Out Patient Clinics and Community Based Out Patient Clinics.
San Juan is the capital city of Puerto Rico.
I was born in the San Juan area.
Keep in mind .. these are breaking news.
Will need to keep an eye on this and see where it goes.
I have a sinking feeling in my heart. I don’t have cold facts or evidence. Once again, the USA is set to “use” Puerto Rico for its convenience. As a “commonwealth” of the USA, Puerto Rico “abides” by the rules set by the American government.
Once again, the government of the USA is setting to use and abuse the island of Puerto Rico.

According to potrblog in the video below, the “Veterans Administration hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico is expecting the near term arrival of a number of Ebola patients and is creating an entire Ebola Ward to handle the infected patient inflow,” and he states that it is unclear if this is the planned location being set up to quarantine US military members coming back from west Africa after becoming infected with the deadly Ebola virus.
The hospital is fearful that the Airborne spread of Ebola out of their quarantine ward will “create a situation where an outbreak of Ebola may happen to patient, guest or employees”.
The Veterans Administration has categorized this as an emergency situation, and has awarded a no-bid emergency contract to install HEPA air filters in the Ward’s return air HVAC ducting.
More in the first video below about the air filters and the HVAC contract, and the second video below is the one where the original shock claim is made about US troops already being in quarantine after returning from Africa, some infected with Ebola.
“Minuscule — the private life of insects is a French-made series of short video animations giving “a bird’s eye view of insects’ day to day existence, distorted through a burlesque, yet poetic lens”. The characters are computer-modeled in 3D and set against natural scenery. Each animation has a self-contained and usually humorous story line.
The audio is a combination of genuine insect and ambient recordings with artificial sound effects. The various protagonist insects often perform anthropomorphic activities, displaying ironically portrayed intelligence, enjoyment and, sometimes, pathos.
“Many people are fond of ladybugs because of their colorful, spotted appearance. But farmers love them for their appetite. Most ladybugs voraciously consume plant-eating insects, such as aphids, and in doing so they help to protect crops. Ladybugs lay hundreds of eggs in the colonies of aphids and other plant-eating pests. When they hatch, the ladybug larvae immediately begin to feed.
Ladybugs appear as half-spheres, tiny, spotted, round or oval-shaped domes. They have short legs and antennae.
Their distinctive spots and attractive colors are meant to make them unappealing to predators. Ladybugs can secrete a fluid from joints in their legs which gives them a foul taste. Their coloring is likely a reminder to any animals that have tried to eat their kind before: “I taste awful.” A threatened ladybug may both play dead and secrete the unappetizing substance to protect itself.”

IOTD is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!
