Elizabeth May, head of the Green party is in a pickle (get it, green party, green pickle). She’s a decent person, albeit a bit too much of a tree-hugger for Blanche and is caught in her party’s decision to support the BDS bs, which she does not. So what is she supposed to do: step down or keep going despite the differences? Her decision is to stay on as party leader for now and see where the chips fall.
Perhaps she’s hoping that saner minds will prevail or that those who support bds will leave. It’s a sad commentary either way that people who seem to care about the whales, trees and ants can be so vociferous in their dislike of Jews. Here’s our suggestion: take the whole bunch of them to Israel and show them what is really going on. It appears that their opinions are based on media commentary, very often slanted against Israel and pictures, many of which are staged.
So it’s out in the open. The majority of Clinton Foundation donors got special access to Hillary. More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money – lots of it – either personally or through companies or groups – to the Clinton Foundation.
85 of 154 special interest groups gave around $156 million. Of that small group, at least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million. Here’s what Hillary and Bill were singing at one of those meetings: We’re in the money, the sky is sunny.
Those in flood-striken Louisiana will be happy to know that his royal potus Barack Obama has ended his vacation and will now go and visit the flood victims. Sweet of him, eh?
There are some people who either just like adventure or have a death wish. Case in point are the 1000 guests and 600 crew who set sail for the most isolated place in the world – the Arctic and Greenland aka the Northwest passage, for a cool $22,000 minimum per person.
The biggest problem with this cruise is that if anything happens to the ship or anyone on board, they are basically toasted as the area is plagued by a lack of adequate nautical charts, virtually no navigation aids, poor communication systems, and a lack of infrastructure. Blanche, ya think some people have too much time on their hands? This is just not safe. End of story. If one is looking for an adventure where it’s a crap shoot whether or not you will return home, this ship is for you.
So which is better – Uber or taxis? From our firsthand account, hands down it is Uber, which came when called within 2 minutes – literally. No fuss, no confusion, the money comes off your credit card, the cars are spotless, the drivers pleasant and courteous and not on their phones. And they arrive within two minutes of calling.
The taxi drivers in this city may fight them, but it is the public who ultimately decide. While the cab drivers may indeed fight the uber expansion, unless they upgrade their take on their industry, it’s over for them.
