End It, Please

FYI: President Bill Clinton is 70 today. Happy Birthday!

This is from CNN yesterday:

The Clinton Foundation said Thursday it will not accept foreign or corporate donations if Hillary Clinton is elected president in November.

The decision comes amid intensifying scrutiny over the foundation’s practices as Republicans use its connections to wealthy international players to attack Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. Bill Clinton also plans to cease giving paid speeches — another move intended to prevent further accusations of cronyism.

The Clinton Foundation and the emails are Clinton creations and big time vulnerabilities. I would rather have the White House than the foundation. I really hate to say this. If Hillary wins, I would hope that they just shut down the foundation. Why risk a second term? Just saying.

The fading ‘Stros are 61-60. What was our record last year after 121 games?

Well at least he can sing. Commentary is talking about the new HISD superintendent. At his debut last night, he belted out a mariachi tune. Lot of folks have given him advice on how to do his job. My three cents: Just don’t be arrogant and be a leader.

I watched the following last night. It lacked sincerity. Here is from CNN:

Donald Trump on Thursday shelved his guiding mantra — never back down, never apologize — and did what he has refused to do in public in more than a year of campaigning.

He expressed regret. 

Trump, reading from prepared remarks Thursday night, acknowledged that he sometimes says “the wrong thing” in an astonishing act of contrition that signaled Trump’s willingness to break from his characteristic brashness and bare-knuckles style that carried him to victory in the Republican primaries, but risks dooming him in the general election. 

“Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that. And believe it or not, I regret it. And I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues,” Trump told supporters here.

Uh, sure! That’s not going to last. You can tell he doesn’t like using the teleprompter.  The guy has been all over the map on everything.

So this morning he tweets this:

The reporting at the failing @nytimes gets worse and worse by the day. Fortunately, it is a dying newspaper.


If Team Clinton had a senior advisor with a past of helping out a pro-Russian political party in the Ukraine, the Fox News talking heads would be all over this. Just saying.

Then this happened:

Now that’s what I call stability.  Meanwhile, it looks like the Trump campaign is making the play to take Travis County. Who’s in charge now?

Last season, the ‘Stros were 66-55 after 121 games of course.

Yeah, I know. We can turn it around. I am disappointed with the team. I am more disappointed with the front office. I feel like they have let me down
