foundationRoughly, five weeks left to go in the presidential election and one must wonder—can this race get nastier? 

Well, it can.  Simply check your twitter feed.  You will discover quickly, the allegations thrown around, the news stories being circulated, are as vicious as they get. In a quick twittering around, this is what is on our feed this afternoon:

Post-debate polls, one from Morning Consult, a national poll claiming Clinton with a big bump of seven points including a jump in Colorado, a highly significant climb, at that. Trump taxes? Many or now saying that Hillary Clinton committed some of the same  tax schemes as did Donald Trump.

The New York Attorney General has sent Trump another cease and desist notice for his Trump Foundation allegedly not following the rules.  Trump calls the AG of New York, a hack.   According to reports from the Washington Post, and now charges by the AG, Trump Foundation lacked the proper certification, as required by law. 

And, of course, by now, just about everybody is familiar with Alec Baldwin’s high-lipped impression of Trump on Saturday night live.  He will be returning this Saturday and reportedly will be playing Trump, until, at least some time into the future.

The Trump surrogates are attacking the Clinton’s about their marriage.  Joy Reid of MSNBC wonders if this is for real, given the surrogates own past.  Trump is boasting about two new polls one an online poll and the other a traditionally favorable poll out of USC which has always been favorable to him against Clinton.   

Trump taxes? How about Hillary’s taxes.  Trump supporters are pointing fingers at Clinton, claiming she has committed some of the same tax sheltering schemes, as Donald Trump.

Can it get any nastier?

Probably even “more so” as the big day approaches.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
