183rd post

CONTINUED FROM THIS MORNING.... ....But I believe Aunt Lottie (the oldest), my Father (did he quit Bridgewater High School to work and help with his Mother's support?) and Aunt Juanita had to help with money to help support Grandmother and the house. My Uncle Ray and Aunt May (who are twins and too young to work, but later on, she worked at Mick or Mack and helped her husband, Uncle Jack at a store in Montezuma (just about a mile west of Dry River on State Route 257) and Uncle Ray (Father said he was the best door hanger he ever saw) worked as a carpenter for my Father in his construction business just like his Father (my Grandfather).... TO BE CONTINUED.... Hillary Clinton "Considering Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign against President Barack Obama and Donald Trump's recent polls figures cited by The Washington Post, the Republican presidential nominee has a bigger voter issue than females, blacks, Hispanics and young voters: the Catholic vote. The paper reported the relative shift of Catholics from the Republican candidate in '12 to Hillary Clinton now is more than any other demographic currently. "Catholics have long been a swing vote in presidential elections, and right now they're swinging hard for Clinton," The Post's Aaron Blake wrote. "It's also hard to overstate just how significant Trump's poor performance among Catholics is. That's because they comprise about 1/4 of voters in the United States (25 percent in 2012 exit polls) and are about as big a voting bloc as non-whites (28 percent) and independents (29 percent)." Pope Francis and Trump notoriously feuded during the Republican primary season in February, as Pope Francis said Trump is "not Christian" for his views on immigration. Trump shot back it was "disgraceful" for a religious leader to question his faith. "If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS's ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been President because this would not have happened," Trump said in a statement. © 2016 Newsmax.

Clinton now leads Trump by 3 points, 43 percent to 40 percent, in the Morning Consult poll released Sunday morning. Clinton led Trump by 6 points, 44 percent to 38 percent, just last week.... Clinton has the support of 79 percent of African-Americans, compared to 5 percent of black voters who back Trump. Trump also trails Clinton among women, 44 percent to 35 percent. The new poll of 2,007 registered voters, conducted Aug. 24–26, has a margin of error of 2 percentage points. © 2016 Newsmax. All rights reserved.

Quotes from by Thomas Jefferson.... The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you. I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical. Also from "Tears are the summer showers to the soul." Alfred Austin Tonight it rained so I get a brake two days in a row. I probably have time tomorrow, I hope, to video the "the fruits of my labor", my flower gardens, and it may take three 15 videos to cover it all. Copyright ©2013 All Rights Reserved
