Muslim countries not on POTUS ban list

From Rosalind S. Helderman at the Washington Post, simplified information - what you need to know about President Trump's executive order banning travelers from specific countries with predominantly Muslim populations.
Trump banning Muslims from entering the US

More specifically, we are taking a look at Muslim countries NOT on the POTUS ban list

The executive order he signed Friday bans all entry for the next 90 days by travelers from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya.

Wait, what? Why 90 Days?

According to Trump (see image), "...until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."

Trump has two luxury towers in Turkey, and earned $6 million there (reported in May, 2016)... Turkey is NOT on the list, yet Americans have been issued a travel warning from the State Department regarding Turkey's anti-American rhetoric.

Wait, what?

Then there's Saudi Arabia, where Trump is attempting to build a hotel. Saudi Arabia in NOT on the list. "The executive order makes no mention of Saudi Arabia, home of 15 of the 19 terrorists involved in the 9/11 attacks."

Wait, what?

Trump resort construction is underway in Indonesia. Indonesia is NOT on the list. "Excluded as well is Indonesia, the world’s largest majority-Muslim nation...."

Wait, what?

"To be blunt.... From what we could tell from his campaign and his actions since he became president, what seems to be first and foremost on his mind is his own self-interest and an obsession with his brand.”

Ah, now it makes sense.

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

hypocrite - a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, e…

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

You can also learn more about the Zika virus from the Centers for Disease Control atCDC.gov/zika/.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is SCDHEC.gov/, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
