Hillary Clinton’s Ridiculous Hedge On Keystone Xl

Hillary Clinton’s ridiculous hedge on Keystone XL – The Washington Post.

I’m a Democrat and that’s all you need to know.

“Look. When you are running for president — whether or not you served in the current administration — you are going to be asked to take positions on issues that the current president is dealing with. As long as we hold elections that begin two years (or more) before the current president is set to leave office, that’s going to be a thing candidates need to contend with. If Clinton’s position is that she can’t take a public stance on any issue that has some sort of pending business before this White House, then she’s not going to be able to take a position on, well, anything.”

Stagefright: Everything you need to know about Google’s Android megabug

Originally posted on Fortune:

Stagefright? What? Huh? That’s what you’ve been asking yourself ever since the Internet erupted yesterday over the announcement of a big computer bug in Google’s Android operating system.

In fact, you might still be wondering: Is my phone safe? Wait, the Internet erupted? Did it actually explode? (Is that even possible?)

Thankfully, no. I mean maybe, but as long as you’re still able to read this then I think we’re doing okay. Anyway, for those who still have questions about all the hullabaloo, Fortune has drafted a friendly Q&A to help you understand what happened, and why it is a problem that still needs fixing.

What is stage fright?

Stage fright is the nervous sensation a presenter feels before appearing publicly. (Say, for example, at a major security conference next month.)

Stagefright, on the other hand, is the nickname of a terrible Android flaw found in the open…

Sandra Bland: Why Wasn’t She Bailed Out Of Jail?

Texas county releases video to dispel rumors over woman’s death | Reuters.

She was booked on the 10th and had bail set on the 11th. The bail was $5,000, $500 would have released he from jail. She called her sister to arrange bail. Ms. Bland killed herself on the morning of 13th. Does the family blame themselves for not acting immediately? I hope not.

Caitlyn Jenner’s reality TV show – Not So Interesting

No ratings bonanza for Caitlyn Jenner’s reality TV show | Reuters.

The thrill is gone and it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Name one reality TV show staring a 65 year old of any gender. A girly senior isn’t that sexy even if she is an ESPY winner. The big question is if Caitlyn goes bust will Bruce appear again?

“Caitlyn Jenner’s new reality TV show drew 2.7 million viewers for its weekend premiere, according to ratings data released on Tuesday, a vast drop from the 17 million people who watched the former Olympic champion come out as a transgender woman in an April TV interview.

Jenner’s show “I am Cait,” broadcast on cable network E! on Sunday, chronicles the former Bruce Jenner’s adjustment to life as a woman and transgender spokesperson, along with reactions from Jenner’s family, including members of reality TV’s Kardashian clan.

The first episode was no ratings bonanza. According to Nielsen data, almost three times as many Americans watched “Celebrity Family Feud” on ABC that night.”

Carly Fiorina Should Be In The GOP Debates

Why the GOP needs Carly Fiorina | TheHill.

A PPP poll last week showed Fiorina up to 4 percent. That may not sound noteworthy, but for a candidate with shallow campaign pockets and limited press coverage, it is quite a coup. The poll shows her tied with Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Ted Cruz (Texas), who are very big names in GOP nomination race. That’s made more impressive by the fact that Paul has spent about four times as much as her, while Cruz has spent about eight times as much. In fact, Fiorina caught up with the two higher tier candidates while spending under $1 million. Not bad.

Many Republicans have latched onto Donald Trump as the candidate who isn’t a politician, who tells it like it is, who knows a thing or two about business.

Fiorina is all that, but with an extra helping of class.”

Transgender Confusion

Blog: Born this way?.

It seems to me that the left has a very narrow definition of what it means to be male or female. Why can’t a man be a man in a silk blouse? Women wear pants and take wood shop.

“I was born and remain a female.  As a child, I did not play with dolls, preferring trucks in the mud.  I abhorred anything girlie-girl, thought dodgeball ruled, played and fought with the boys.  It was easier for me to relate to boys than girls, and I fit in better.  In middle school, I was the first female to take wood shop – not because I wanted to prove anything, but because I was more interested in woodworking than I was in home economics.

But there was never any confusion as to who I was.  It never occurred to me to consider that nature had erred and trapped a boy in a girl’s body; I loved and still love being a girl.  I’m thankful I was born female, but I am more thankful that I didn’t have overreacting liberals for parents and teachers.  The moment I started exhibiting less than female traits, they would have rushed me off to the gender reassignment camp.”
