There was the Democratic commentator on CNN who attacked Trump for not mentioning the Warsaw Ghetto uprising in his speech in Poland, when he did mention it:

Here’s a poll whose results must’ve shocked the Washington Post pollsters: It found that about half of all Americans say a prayer over their food before eating, at least a few times a week. It’s common across various demographic groups and both political parties, and even those who don’t subscribe to an organized religion; although if you are a Republican or a black Evangelical, you’re more likely to say a prayer before eating than if you’re, say, a Democrat or a white non-Evangelical Protestant. I wonder how many atheists even say a prayer before eating if the restaurant looks bad enough.

It’s a reminder that despite a poll showing a belief in God or prayer hit an “all-time low” in 2014, in America, that “low” is still a very high number (even in that poll, 55% still said they pray every day.)

Remember how proponents of gay marriage said that people of faith had no reason to oppose it because it would never affect them? And then, once they got what they wanted, they immediately began trying to use that dubious Supreme Court ruling to override the First Amendment and sue, prosecute and drive into bankruptcy anyone who still held religious beliefs that didn't kowtow to their agenda? Another thing we hear from those same “progressives” is a lot of balloon juice about the horrible corrupting influence of big money in politics.

Well, meet the gay software tycoon who’s quietly helped finance this legal crusade to the tune of $422 million, and who now has declared the next step in his battle is to “punish the wicked” – with “the wicked” being defined as anyone who still refuses to sacrifice his or her personal sacred religious beliefs on the altar of his radical LGBTQ political agenda. He sounds as if he wants to force God out of the way so that he can take over His job.

Making America Great Again Dept: The government reported Friday that 222,000 non-farm jobs were created in June. Economists had expected 179,000. Isn’t it nice that these jobs reports stories that start with the word “unexpectedly” now mean growth was unexpectedly higher rather than lower?

Amid a flurry of exposes, biased reports and fake news stories, CNN’s ratings have plummeted. How low? This week, the prime time cable TV ratings had CNN in 13th place, behind Nickelodeon’s reruns of “Full House” and “Yogi Bear.” Maybe that’s because you’re more likely to see a Boo-Boo on a CNN news report than on “Yogi Bear.”

Amazing story of a professional runner who was charged by two black bears while jogging in the woods, and he had to outrun them for his life. It reminds me of the joke about two friends who went camping, and they saw a bear charging toward them. One quickly pulled on his running shoes. His friend said, “What are you doing? You can’t outrun a bear!” The guy replied, “I don’t have to outrun the bear. I just have to outrun you.”
