At the Wayne County Fair I stopped at many commercial, political and 

other booths, talking about almost anything due to my listening to other 

people in all of the 73 years of my life. I do have a college diploma, but I

believe, like my Father who only had an 8th grade education, that after 

learning reading, writing and math, life's experience give to you a better


At one booth I talked to two women who were trying to get people to accept

Jesus and handed me a card that said "Smile, Jesus Loves YOU!" They asked

me if I had accepted Jesus into my heart and I said "yes." They then asked if I

had been baptized and I said "yes" again and went on to tell them I had been

baptized in a creek just north a mile or so from the old US Route 30 and a 

McDonalds to the left if you are going to the creek. I learned later that the 

preacher was a false prophet, but I have been baptized before and I believe

God and Jesus will certainly accept that for what it's worth.

"Defeated Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz has endorsed Donald 

Trump in the race for the White House.

The Texas senator fought Mr Trump in a bitter primary battle, marked 

by mud-slinging and personal insults.

Mr Cruz said he would fulfil his promise to vote for the Republican 

nominee and that electing Hillary Clinton would be "wholly unacceptable".

He drew ire at the Republican National Convention in July, when he 

was booed off stage for not endorsing Mr Trump.

"This election is unlike any other in our nation's history. Like many other 

voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this 

general election, " Mr Cruz announced in a Facebook post."



Hillary Clinton: I'm the only candidate in race who has been part of "hard 

decisions" to take out terrorists

10:19 AM - 19 Sep 2016
Hillary Clinton warned an electorate rattled by the explosions in 

New York and New Jersey that Donald Trump’s national security 

plans would exacerbate the threat from Islamic State, and said she 

is the only candidate in the presidential race equipped with a workable 

plan to intensify the fight against terrorism.

“We’re not going to go after an entire religion and give ISIS exactly 

what it is wanting in order for it to enhance its position,” Clinton said 

of Trump’s call to ban immigration from unspecified Islamic nations. 

“We know Donald Trump’s comments have been used online for 

recruitment of terrorists.”

The bombings and the news that police have launched a massive 

manhunt for a naturalized U.S. citizen from Afghanistan create a 

political dilemma for Clinton, as she faces an opponent warning 

that the Obama administration anti-terrorism efforts that she helped 

design have been a failure. She sought to reassure voters by comparing

 her plans for fighting terrorism to Trump’s, and noting that some of 

the most prominent GOP national security experts support her.

“I am the only candidate in this race who has been part of the hard 

decision to take terrorists off the battlefield,” Clinton said at a news 

conference Monday. She vowed that as president, she would intensify 

the air campaign against Islamic State, provide more support to 

Kurdish ground forces and demand tech companies get more 

aggressively engaged in helping find terrorists online, as well as 

frustrating terrorist recruitment efforts on social media.

“There are millions and millions of naturalized citizens in America 

from all over the world,” Clinton said of the prospect that the manhunt 

for an immigrant could make skeptical voters reconsider Trump’s plan 

to curtain immigration.

“There are millions of law-abiding, peaceful Muslims..Let’s not get 

diverted and distracted by kind of campaign rhetoric we hear from 

the other side. This is a serious challenge. We are well-equipped to 

meet it. We can do so in keeping with smart law enforcement, good 

intelligence and in concert with our values.”

“I have sat at that table in the situation room,” Clinton said. “I have 

analyzed the threats. I know how to do this.”

SEPT. 19, 2016 - 6:46 A.M.

It was natural for people who've been our political allies and personal 

friends to call and ask for things. And I trusted the State Department 

wouldn't do anything they shouldn't do.

Trump on GOP dissenters: 'I don’t even really care about their support'

(Steve Dykes / Associated Press)

Donald Trump still doesn’t have John Kasich’s support. And he says he 

doesn’t care.

Speaking on “Fox & Friends” Monday, Trump again found himself 

discussing the long-since resolved primary battle for the GOP nomination, 

even as only 50 days remain until the general election. The Ohio governor 

has been defending what he calls his principled decision not to actively 

support his party’s nominee.

“They all want to run in four years, right? If I were the head of the 

Republican Party, I would say you can’t do it,” Trump said Monday.

“In the meantime, we’re either tied or leading."

"It’d be nice to have their support. But at this point I don’t even really care 

about their support,” Trump said, referring to both Kasich and former 

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. 

On average, recent polls have shown Trump and Hillary Clinton tied in 

Ohio, but Trump leads in the most recent surveys. The two are also in a 

close race in Florida. Both are must-win states for Trump.

On Sunday RNC Chairman Reince Priebus suggested a restriction on 

Republicans who do not endorse Trump. Republicans “need to get on 

board,” Priebus said CBS’ “Face the Nation," where he referred to the 

pledge all Republican candidates took to support the nominee this year.

“And if they're thinking they're going to run again someday, you know, 

I think that we're going to evaluate the process of the nomination process, 

and I don't think it's going to be that easy for them,” he said.

“It's not a threat,” he later said. “It's just a question that we have a process 

in place.”

A Kasich adviser later pushed back, saying the Ohio governor “will not be 

bullied by a Kenosha [Wis.] political operative that is unable to stand up 

for core principles or beliefs.”

“Reince should be thanking the governor for standing for an inclusive, 

conservative vision that can actually win a national election and improve 

the country,” Kasich strategist John Weaver said in a statement, noting the 

governor is traveling to try to prevent “a potential national wipeout.”

Trump on Monday referred not just to Kasich but also to Bush. Or Jeb 

Exclamation Point, as he said in a surprise cameo in the Emmy Awards 

broadcast Sunday that ended with him pulling away in a car featuring a 

Jeb 2020 bumper sticker.

Martha Stewart: 'Obviously, I'm voting for Hillary Clinton'

Martha Stewart reignited a decade-old feud with Donald Trump this past 

weekend by announcing her plan to vote for Hillary Clinton.

"There is so much to know and so much to learn and so much diplomacy 

and kindness and introspection that goes with that kind of ... job — and it 

does not exist in the world of Donald Trump,” Stewart said on CNN’s 

“Money” on Sunday.

She and the Republican presidential nominee fell out in 2006 when he 

blamed low ratings for his show “The Apprentice” on Stewart’s spinoff, 

“The Apprentice: Martha Stewart.” He wrote a harsh letter demanding 

Stewart take full responsibility for the failure. She later called his actions 


Stewart, a businesswoman and lifestyle mogul, said America can’t elect a 

leader who enters the job “totally unprepared.”

"We have to be very certain that we elect a person who has experience, 

knowledge, a base of education in the world of world politics as well as 

domestic politics,” she said. “So obviously, I'm voting for Hillary Clinton.”

When Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton face off in their first presidential 

debate together on Monday, they will have their best chance yet to win 

over the roughly 27 million Americans who have yet to decide who to vote 

for. In some ways, this group looks like a typical Trump supporter: they 

are mainly white, without college degrees, older, and frustrated by the 

status quo. But while Trump's supporters are mostly men, America's 

uncommitted voters are mostly women, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling.

With polls showing a close fight between Trump and Hillary, this is a 

group that could decide the election.

New giant tortoise species discovered on Galapagos Islands

22 October 2015 Last updated at 07:25 BST

"Scientists say a new species of giant tortoise has been discovered on the 

Galapagos Islands off Ecuador.

There are only about 250 of the newly identified species, which have 

been given the scientific name Chelonoidis donfaustoi. The Galapagos 

National Park released video of the new species on Wednesday, but 

the images were filmed in August."

Dr Kwok has a poop chart in each patient's room that I talked about 

before, but I explained it wrong. I'm not in first place with my poop

that looks sausage-like with tapered ends. The chart goes from worse

starting with 1, then going to the best at number 4 and worse again 

thru number 6. So my poop is the best at number 4.

I will need to water the flowers again this morning with no rain in sight 

until Tuesday of next week. I finally planted the Mums and black 

mulched the back of the older back corner flower bed.

My plan today is to again grass seed the bare areas of the yard and dig 

up those big clumps of wire weeds. I do not think that the tall grass will 

kill my least favored weed.
