Random Oddservations™ Funky Advertisements. What percentage of TV ads are there that do not have a barely discernible white lettering on the bottom that qualifies everything the ad just advertised. The new Chevy Malibu- “Oh and how much is it?” “Starting at $22,500” “WOW” And then in little tiny letters at the bottom “Model Shown $43,550”. Or on all the Tablet and Cell phone ads “Screen Image Simulated” Why are they afraid of showing a real image?
Weaker in Review™
- Palestinians: Western Media’s Ignorance and Bias: Foreign journalists based in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv have for years refused to report on the financial corruption and human rights violations that are rife under the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas regimes. Palestinian “suffering” and the “evil” of the Israeli “occupation” are the only admissible topics. Another Ramallah-based colleague shared that a few years ago he received a request from a cub correspondent to help arrange an interview with Yasser Arafat. Except at that point, Arafat had been dead for several years. Fresh out of journalism school and unknowledgeable about the Middle East, the journalist was apparently considered by his editors a fine candidate for covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

- Judge Andrew Napolitano had some advice for Hillary Clinton Wednesday evening. Following a report that intelligence more sensitive than “top secret” traversed through her server, Napolitano said Clinton should consult some “high-powered” attorneys because the evidence against her is “damning.” Here is the actual letter, take a read for yourself and you decide: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2016/01/19/read-letter-inspector-general-sent-congress-after-making-alarming-discovery-about-clintons-emails/
- Hilarious Rodham Clinton gave America an insight into her priorities Sunday when, during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, she was asked abut the new film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The movie chronicles the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans were killed. “I’m just too busy campaigning,” said Clinton, who was Secretary of State when the attacks took place. “I am still very focused on making sure we do everything we can, as I did when I was secretary of state, as I testified to over 11 hours, to make sure that nothing like that happens again, insofar as we are able to prevent it. And that’s my focus when it comes to the continuing obligation that the United States government has whenever we send anyone into harm’s way.” Remember she is ‘too busy’ to see this movie but she has more than enough time for: a) Appearing on the Jimmy Fallon show; b) Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show; c) Appearing on Lifetime to be interviewed by YouTube ‘stars.’ http://www.westernjournalism.com/watch-hillary-gets-asked-about-benghazi-movie-13-hours-and-gives-jaw-dropping-answer/
Describing ilLiberals by the D’s:
Last time it was Deceive, this time:
DIVIDE Verb To separate (something) into classes or categories: to cause to be separate, distinct, or apart from one another.
ilLiberals in America have been dividing Americans into several classes for decades with the past 7 1.2 years seeming to me to be the worst. Whether it is by gender, race, sexual orientation, age, income, faith, etc., liberals are using many tactics to accomplish their goals. “Divide & conquer” is their mantra. Lincoln stated that a house divided against itself cannot stand  and told America we would never be defeated from a foreign entity. The defeat would come from within.  Any possibility that you see this happening from our twice-elected Barrack Hussein Obama? Do you feel that we are closer together as a nation? Do you feel that the nations of the world are working together harmoniously since he took office?

The Correct Side of the Story
I thought this was quite funny. The sad part is, it just shows how far people will go to avoid dealing with the facts and the truth. https://iamnotanatheist.wordpress.com/2016/01/23/flying-spaghetti-monster/
They call it Planet Nine. Nearly the size of Neptune, it lurks at the fringes of our solar system, orbiting the sun every 15,000 years. This putative planet has been deduced, rather than observed, and has a compelling story to tell about how modern science can be an act of faith. (I’ve been saying that for years, it takes faith to believe in a Creator, it takes more faith to believe their isn’t)
