Now that I realize we are willing to elect just anyone President I hope in 2020 we nominate someone who is struggling to make it off of social security payments.

No wonder he wants Mexico to pay for it.  He knows we couldn't buy a peanut with the tax money he gave to this country.

Denigrating over-weight people is Trump's way of winning the Presidency?

Next debate we have I wish they would post the question asked at the bottom of the screen.  Candidates seem to go where they want to and we all forget the question asked.

Saudi Arabia Arrests Teenager for Participating In An “Enticing” Video Chat With American Blogger

imgresSaudi Arabia continued this week to prove to the world that it is every bit as extremist as counties like Iran and radical Sunni groups.  Our closest Arab ally arrested a teenager named Abu Sin for engaging in “unethical behavior” by appearing in online video chats with an American vlogger named Christina Crockett.  The video was deemed "enticing"under the Kingdom's medieval morality laws.

Lawyer sends $1,000 to jury duty scammers who are refining their craft

Jury duty scammers are growing so sophisticated that a Houston lawyer believed their claim that he would be arrested if he didn’t pay up.
Lawyer Keith Woods paid $1,000 to the scammers, report the Houston Chronicle and Click2Houston.
The scammers left a message on Woods’ phone when he wasn’t home, and when he returned the call he heard a message that he had reached the Harris County Sheriff’s office, he told the Houston Chronicle.
The scammers told Woods there were warrants for his arrest for missing jury duty, but he could take care of the problem by paying $1,000. Woods obliged. After figuring out he had been scammed, “I felt foolish,” Woods told the Chronicle.
Harris County District Clerk Chris Daniel told the Houston Chronicle that the scammers are sharpening their skills. “In the past it was someone with a foreign accent telling you to send it to a P.O. box, using hard cash,” Daniel said.
Now the scammers ask their victims to buy a reloadable money card and to read the card number over the phone. “To appear legit, they’ll have you mail the card as proof of payment,” Daniel said.
Daniel says his office never places phone calls to people who miss jury duty. “You will receive a failure to appear notice in the mail from us,” he said.
Federal prosecutors indicted 51 prisoners and guards in January for running phone scams from a Georgia prison with contraband phones. Harris County Sheriff’s investigator Joshua Nowitz told the Houston Chronicle that Georgia prisoners may be running the Texas scam. “The scam is still continuing, and it’s being operated by the same groups of people in the same prisons,” he said.
