Get a life lesson from this man who has used his 46 years on this earth to develop this ultimate “wife hack” … LOL … and be sure to stay with it to the very end ladies as the instructor parses the men for you as well .
” In June, Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared on the cover of People magazine for the first time in more than a decade. Real people, not the magazine, talked about what the article might mean for 2016. They talked about whether Clinton was using a walker (she wasn’t). They talked about people talking about whether Clinton was using a walker (She still wasn’t).
According to a report from AdWeek on Monday, the June 16 issue of People featuring the former first lady and senator was the magazine’s worst selling of 2014 with 503,890 copies sold.
It has not been a good year for Hillary Clinton and print media. Her book, “Hard Choices,” also failed to sell as many copies as initial estimates assumed it would.”

” In the secretive special operations community, officials are debating whether to tweak tactics for daring and risky missions involving hostage rescue and terrorist targeting that have been compromised by years of detailed news accounts and Hollywood portrayals.
Some believe Islamic extremists have gone to school on special operations forces. The classroom is the U.S. media.
Special operations forces’ three most recent attempts to rescue American hostages failed. Last year, SEALs attempted a beach insertion to capture a terrorist leader in Somalia but were spotted and repelled. There was also the horrific loss of SEALs in a helicopter shoot-down that some family members believe was an ambush.
For years, the basics for rescue and terrorist targeting have remained intact: insertion by silenced helicopter or boat to, or near, a target; and fast-roping or running to the end point. The objective is complete tactical surprise by the best commandos in the world, enhanced by goggles that let them see through the darkness.
But as one veteran of the special operations community said, “We’ve got one way of doing things, and the enemy is on to it because they’ve published these news reports and movies and all the rest of it. It’s time for some new tactics because the old ones are not working anymore.”
Retired Rear Adm. George Worthington, once the Navy’s top SEAL, was asked whether members of al Qaeda and other terrorist groups have gone to school on special operations tactics.”

Earlier this month we highlighted a video that was produced by the Stand With Hillary Super PAC to support the “inevitable” campaign , it is her turn after all , of Ms Hillary Clinton for president . There was much to do on both sides of the aisle about the video , most of which commented on the fact that said video was unintended parody . This current video , by the esteemed Remy is real , intentional parody . Brought to you , as always , by ReasonTV we hope you enjoy it as much as we did .
Below are the lyrics so you can follow along …
Just like the last time around
Republicans are gonna frown
Mitt Romney and Ben Carson now?
Like Twitter stock you’re going down
You’d that you were riding in
Billy Joel’s car I swear
because you’re gonna see
shattered glass everywhere
I’m talking Arkansas Badonkadonk..
Perfect voting record make you wanna vote along
Gonna bring along ol’ Bill Clinton
and ooh-wee, shut my mouth, slap your grandma
You think she’s gonna lose
in the early primaries?
You’d sooner see Al Sharpton
promptly filing quarterlies
Somehow I’m a crusader
Can label you a hater
While I say “nominate
anybody with a baby-maker” “
” Most Americans think torture can be justified, but hardly anyone thinks “rectal feeding” is acceptable
This week saw the release of a long-awaited Senate report detailing the post-9/11 CIA detention and interrogation program with a focus on the agency’s the use of torture. According to the report, interrogation procedures used on some detainees that were much harsher and less effective than previously acknowledged. Critics, including former CIA interrogators and Bush administration officials, have called the report politically motivated and inaccurate.
When Americans are asked about suspected terrorists “who may know details about future attacks against the U.S.”, only 24% are prepared to say the use of torture is “never” justified. Nearly as many, 20%, say the use of torture is “always” justified, while the remainder say it’s either “sometimes” (28%) or only “rarely” (18%) justified – a total of 66% who are unwilling to rule out torture completely. There has been little change in views from April, before the release of the report, when 22% said torture was never justified. “
” If you love making GIFs (and really, who doesn’t?) today is a happy day for you. YouTube has finally heeded the call of millions of users and quietly added a GIF-creator tool to some of its videos (for example, anything uploaded by the PBS Idea Channel). The share button (which previously only had share, embed, and email as options) now includes an extra feature: GIF.
It’s a pretty bare-bones affair: tap share, set your start and end points, add any captions if you’d like, and click “create” — YouTube will host the GIF itself. The clip can only be a maximum of 5 seconds long, which makes it somewhat of a crude tool for GIF-makers, but it will help keep file size small. The ease with which one churn out GIFs and add meme-like bottom and top text will certainly be enough for the casual user and perhaps spur on a Mememageddon the likes of which we haven’t seen since 2011. The future is now. “
” A former fighter pilot and Guinness record holder – known as ‘Jetman’ – has performed a new stunt, taking over the skies of the United Arab Emirates. High-flying Swiss national Yves Rossy teamed up with Dubai, flying above the wealth of its land.
” To fly alone is great, but to fly with another guy is greater,” Rossy, who is equipped with a pair of jet-propelled wings, said in a new 4K video, before taking part in a formation flight with Hungarian aerobatics champion Veres Zoltan, conquering the heights in cloudless Dubai.
Rossy and his futuristic jet suit have partnered with Dubai to push yet higher boundaries within the realm of anti-gravity experiences.
Naming his challenge a “culmination of decades of fulfilling a childhood dream through technological innovation, determination, teamwork and courage,” the ex-Swiss Air Force pilot took to the skies of the UAE, celebrating its 43rd National Day, as both he and Sheikh Hamdan – the Crown Prince of Dubai – announced on social media.”
” Millionaires are sharply divided on their choice for the next President of the U.S., according to the second CNBC Millionaire Survey released today. Yet if a vote were held today, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be the overall favorite among millionaire voters.
The survey polled 500 people with investable assets of $1 million or more, which represents the top 8 percent of American households. According to the survey—a poll evenly split between Democrats, Republicans and Independents—Hillary Clinton is the top choice for 31 percent of millionaires, including 23 percent of Independent millionaires and 5 percent of Republican millionaires.
Respondents got to choose among nine potential candidates in the survey: Clinton; Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.); Vice President Joe Biden; Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.); Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas); Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.); former Governor Jeb Bush (R-Fla.); Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Governor Scott Walker (R-Wis.)
Clinton gets the support of 38 percent of women millionaires and 27 percent of male millionaires. Among male millionaires of both parties, Hillary is the top choice, with 27 percent.”
Aside from the obvious contradiction regarding the oft-repeated MSM meme of the GOP as the “party of the rich” this poll is notable for the fact that screaming socialist Bernie Sanders bests Fauxcahontas herself . LOL .
The Dems continue to veer more sharply to the left than any NASCAR auto racecar .
” A quick analysis of English dialects shows that there are roughly as many in the British Isles as there are in the whole of North America – including Canada, Bermuda and Native American dialects. The same categorization would, in North America, result in there being about one dialect per 10m people; in the British Isles there would be one for every 1.3m. Britain is highly peculiar in its linguistic variation, and the cultural contours associated with these differences make a small country feel large.
First impressions of unearned features, such as accents, still have an impact on success, in employment, social life and elsewhere. New YouGov research looks at public opinion towards 12 of the main accents of the British Isles, revealing clear winners and losers, at least in terms of what is seen as attractive.
The Birmingham accent, more specifically ‘Brummie’, has lost the battle of appeal. In net terms it scores -53, 20 points below than the second-lowest: ‘Scouse’, the accent of Liverpool, on -33. “
This ROV from Deep Trekker would make a great gift to the mariner on your list but beware of the $4000 price tag … and this is the starter model . The flagship model , DTG2 Turbo Worker , lists for $10,000 .
DTG2 from Deep Trekker
” The DTG2 from Deep Trekker comes complete with a standard 50 meters of tether that connects you to the Superbright LCD Screen Controller and offers the first completely portable, remotely operated vehicle (ROV). Built to last, the DTG2 is constructed of a cast-aluminum body that encases a 360-degree window and allows the user to have an unprecedented field of view, whether checking out the bottom of the boat or exploring the ocean floor. Typical battery life ranges from six to eight hours. “
Watch this video of the DTG2 and see just how cool it is …
As cool as an underwater ROV might be we personally can see ourselves having much more fun from a gift of the V2 , state of the art , waterproof , floating drone from SeaHex which is a steal at $8,000 … (sarc off)
” The SeaHex V2 changes the stakes for the ever-growing market of quadcopter drones. The big brother of the V1, which allows for safe water recovery, the V2 provides the impressive ability for both water landings and takeoffs. When coupled with the offshore fishing package, the SeaHex V2 lets you create a program to search a half-mile grid in front of you while sending a live feed back to an iPad or a smartphone onboard. That’s a huge advantage when looking for baitballs or a feeding frenzy.”
And here is a video of the SeaHex V2 in action …
While we have highlighted a couple of the most expensive items on the list , do not be deterred . There is something for all budgets among the great gift ideas for the fisherman/boater you love at Marlin Magazine
” Thousands of cellphone users in Kentucky were surprised to receive an “emergency alert” from the federal government warning them to “prepare for action,” a message local authorities later blamed on “human error” during testing.
The alert, which was was sent out to people in the Corbin and London areas of Southern Kentucky earlier today, came from the Emergency Operations Center in Frankfort via the Federal Communication Commission’s Wireless Emergency Alert system.
The messages are designed to warn local residents of immediate safety threats in their area, but some have criticized the “government alerts” as being invasive.
Frankfort Emergency Operations spokesman Buddy Rogers said that the alert was mistakenly sent out “during testing” and was the result of “a computer error, followed by a human error.”
Back in 2011, the FCC began to roll out emergency government alerts to cellphone users in major cities before the program was made mandatory on all new smartphones. Although a user can opt out of some of the alerts, presidential messages direct from the White House cannot be turned off.
This is not the first time that erroneous messages sent out via the government’s emergency alert system have caused consternation. “
” The Democrats took their final drubbing of the 2014 midterm election Dec. 6 with the decisive defeat of Sen. Mary Landrieu in the Louisiana Senate runoff. The election of U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy means Republicans will hold 54 seats in the new Senate.
Assessing the Democratic plight, one-time Republican consultant turned news analyst Matthew Dowd said President Barack Obama had overseen historic losses for his party.
” President Obama has demonstrated he’s very good at winning his own elections,” Dowd said on ABC’s This Week on Dec. 7, 2014. “But in modern times, he has lost more members of the House and more members of the Senate than any president ever has lost.”
We asked Dowd what he meant by modern times and he told PunditFact he was thinking of post-World War II. We went to the congressional records to see how this president and his party stack up compared to past administrations.
We decided to look at how many seats for the own president’s party, be it Democrat or Republican, shifted during each president’s time in office.
We ran the numbers two ways. In the first approach, we looked at the electoral impact of a president who was running on his record. This meant we ignored party shifts in the year he was first elected because at that point he had no presidential track record. This meant that for two-term presidents, we summed the changes for the first midterm, the re-election, and the second midterm. We scored single-term presidents for just one midterm.
Here’s what we came up with. “
President President’s party shift in Congress (Without first election) President’s party shift in Congress (Including first election) Franklin Roosevelt (D) -71 seats +38 seat Harry Truman (D) -17 seats -17 seats Dwight Eisenhower (R) -83 seats -60 seats John F. Kennedy (D) -2 seats -22 seats Lyndon Johnson (D) -14 seats -14 seats Richard Nixon (R) -1 seats 11 seats Gerald Ford (R) -54 seats -54 seats Jimmy Carter (D) -16 seats -16 seats Ronald Reagan (R) -24 seats +24 seats George H.W. Bush (R) -7 seats -10 seats Bill Clinton (D) -59 seats -67 seats George W. Bush (R) -18 seats -26 seats Barack Obama (D) -85 seats -52 seats
” December 7 (Bloomberg) — The Bloomberg Politics Poll, conducted December 3-5 for Bloomberg Politics by
Selzer & Co. of Des Moines, IA, is based on interviews with 1,001 U.S. adults ages 18 or older.
Interviewers with Quantel Research of Ogden, Utah, contacted households with randomly selected landline and cell phone telephone numbers supplied by Survey Sampling International. Interviews were administered in English.
Percentages based on the full probability sample may have a maximum margin of error of plus or minus 3.1
percentage points. This means that if this survey were repeated using the same questions and the same methodology, 19 times out of 20, the findings would not vary from the percentages shown here by more than plus or minus 3.1percentage points. Results based on smaller samples of respondents—such as by gender or age—have a larger margin of error. Responses were weighted by age and race to reflect the general population based on recent census data.

” As the nation focused on Staten Island, Ferguson, and Cleveland in the last few weeks and the relationship between citizens and law enforcement, a recent Wall Street Journal investigation revealed that federal accounting for killings by police may be grossly miscalculated. Wall Street Journal reporter Rob Barry joins Hari Sreenivasan for more on that investigation. “
” Republican Bill Cassidy handedly defeated Democratic incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu in the runoff for the Louisiana Senate seat Saturday, according to the Associated Press and other sources.
The victory ousted Landrieu from the seat she has held for 18 years. For the first time since she was 23 years old, Landrieu will not hold political office.
Landrieu’s fellow Democrats abandoned her, including the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), which withdrew its $2 million ad buy for the runoff after Democrats lost control of the Senate in November. Her Senate colleagues also declined to join her in voting to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, a last ditch failed attempt by Landrieu to demonstrate her “clout.” “
” A long-standing legal battle between the state and a veterans group vying for a Confederate flag license plate will get its day in the nation’s highest court.
The U.S. Supreme Court announced Friday that it will hear oral arguments in a case involving Texas’ ability to choose the messages it allows on government-issued license plates.
John McConnell, an attorney for the Sons of Confederate Veterans, said he fully expects the Supreme Court to uphold an appeals court ruling in favor of his group in what he calls a “simple case.”
“ When the state gets in the business of selling space … for an organization or nonprofit or what have you, they cannot discriminate,” he said. “They’re a government entity, not a private entity. They are constrained by the First Amendment.” “
Unsurprisingly , the comments are disabled for this video . Wonder why … LOL … We’ll let her own words comment for us …

– 55.6% of abortions in that state
5) VA: 10,527 black, 2,606 Hispanic – Total: 13,133
– 54.8% of abortions in that state
6) OH: 9,047 black, 963 Hispanic – Total: 10,010
– 42.4% of abortions in that state

8) TN: 7,792 black, 609 Hispanic – Total: 8,401
– 53.8% of abortions in that state
9) MN: 2,434 black, 674 Hispanic – Total: 3,108
– 29.4% of abortions in that state
10) AL: 5,549 black, 329 Hispanic – Total: 5,878
– 62.2% of abortions in that state
Nationally, blacks make up 13.2% of the population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and Hispanics comprise 17.1% of the population. Combined, that’s 30.3% of the population. “
