BIAS ALERT: Amazon ‘fixed’ reviews for Hillary Clinton’s book | Fox News

“According to WND.com — which has been tracking the number of reviews — Amazon deleted hundreds of comments last week that were critical of the book, which lays out a policy blueprint of how the country would look under a Clinton-Kaine administration.

On Thursday, Amazon — whose CEO, Jeff Bezos, owns the Washington Post — said there were 91 positive reviews compared to 166 critical ones, according to WND. Just two days earlier, there were 1,244 reviews — 81 percent of them with one-star and 16 percent with five-star ratings, the website reported.

As of Monday morning, 85 percent of the customer reviews on Amazon gave it one star, while only 11 percent gave it five stars.

The book dropped from No. 840 on Amazon’s best-seller rankings early last  week to No. 1,538 on Thursday.”

“Call me old-fashioned, but I like men who look like men. I like men who act like men, walk like men, feel like men. I like the brawn, the scruff, the musty scent, the power they exude when muscles ripple. That doesn’t mean they all have to look like a body builder, but they need to be a man who exudes strength.”

It’s may be controversial when a woman says she likes manly men, but what is it when Gay Bikes say the same thing?

Babies Have a Microbial Window of Opportunity – Too Clean

Babies Have a Microbial Window of Opportunity [Excerpt] – Scientific American

“The prevalence of infectious diseases declined sharply after the emergence of antibiotics, vaccines, and sterilization techniques. However, there has been an explosion in the prevalence of chronic non-infectious diseases and disorders in developed countries. One hears about these in the news all the time since they’re very common in industrialized nations, where alterations to our immune system play an important role in their development. They include diabetes, allergies, asthma, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), autoimmune diseases, autism, certain types of cancer, and even obesity. The incidence of some of these disorders is doubling every ten years, and they are starting to appear sooner in life, often in childhood.”

Dream On 

Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got the dues in life to pay

I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody sin
You got to lose to know how to win

The friendship of George W. Bush and Michelle Obama – One Party?

“Over the past eight years, former President George W. Bush and First Lady Michelle Obama have been seen becoming increasingly chummy. At public events, the two can often be found sitting next to each other, sharing a laugh or lending a hand to hold.

Saturday’s ceremony was no exception. During the event, Obama reached over and grabbed Bush into a hug as their spouses clapped and looked on.”
