Bubble girl

From time to time, the desire to be recognized as being the 'elite' overwhelms the usual prudence of remaining in the dark:  "NYT: Hillary Not on Her Deathbed After All, Just Has No Time or Patience for You Commoners".

Is is simply amazing how her handlers are running the campaign with no contact whatsoever with the voters or even the media.  She talks to 'donors' only.  No unscripted questions, no press conferences, an occasional speech off a teleprompter (with her aides hoping she won't break into some kind of fit), and the only 'debates' shielded by the chivalrous Bernie who lobbed soft balls at her.

"Ignoring the Pentagon’s Multi-Trillion-Dollar Accounting Error":
"The thing is, the Pentagon has been at this dodgy game for decades. In 1996, Congress passed a law requiring all federal agencies to comply with federal accounting standards, to produce budgets that are auditable and to submit an audit each year. At this point, two decades later, the Pentagon has yet to comply with that law, and therefore cannot be audited.
It is the only federal agency that is not complying or, the IG’s report suggests, even trying to comply.
One would think that would be newsworthy, but apparently for the major newsrooms of the US, not so much."
I continue to be amazed by the irrationality of human behavior: "Flooding of Coast, Caused by Global Warming, Has Already Begun". Since there is nothing that can be done, we'll just hold our noses and hope for the best.
