Politics - A Legacy Weekend

Well, here it is folks ... the moments you've been waiting for ... or not. Over the next 2 days, both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush will announce their presidential candidacies. Both must overcome the damage created by family members, who were former presidents. NBC labeled them the "Dynasty Candidates". Each have their own strategies - while hoping for the best with a reasonable amount of confidence. They begin by introducing the real Hillary and the real Jeb. Do we know them? Yes. I can't remember the last time I liked a presidential candidate, nor voted. My take is that politicians are figure-heads who know little and run nothing. I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist ... just allow history to speak for itself.

United States Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777. In 1916, Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day and in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Just as we found with the current film San Andreas you have
to overlook the science and enjoy the sci-fi thrill adventures.
