I don’t quite understand why a confident, powerful woman of ambition hasn’t taken on the political apparatus. It doesn’t make sense to me.
A beautiful sunset tonight.
I don’t know why anyone would blatantly lie about their family, especially a public figure who is under intense scrutiny. But Hillary Clinton did just that.
I’ve been working on a series of collages using state maps & items from the family history, including old photos & paintings. I’m hoping to track down images of many ancestors. Above is Iowa.

Sometimes my ancestors weren’t so lucky.
On June 23rd, 1757, during the French & Indian War — what some have described as the first world war and known outside of North America as the Seven Years’ War — John Tidd, my great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather, was murdered and scalped by “a large body of Indians” near Fort Hamilton, Pennsylvania, in what is now the borough of Stroudsburg in Monroe County.¹
1. Fort Hamilton was a “palisaded house, with four half-bastions, 80 feet square, and garrisoned by 60 to 100 men and horses.” It was “built by the Pennsylvania colonial militia from plans by Benjamin Franklin.”
I should print this out for my nephews. Eat up! Candy is good for ya!
can’t handle a press conference, but she can manage being president?
That’s a question that a writer with National Review poses, and answers, devastatingly so.
He, like me, thinks her campaign is likely over before it even starts. I don’t think Hillary has a chance of winning the Democratic nomination.
“It’s hard to screw up a campaign launch. But Hillary Clinton might be about to do it.”
Hillary will be announcing today . . . on Twitter, supplemented by a video message and email. How exciting!
How many folks are gonna pay attention to that snooze fest?
She ain’t Bill, with the smarmy charm & likability. At least he is interesting, and often provides insight on an issue, which sneaks through his penchant for bloviating.
This all came about because she can’t handle dealing with people, the commoners & those pesky reporters with those pesky questions. Even the sycophants who play softball for her are tiresome.
. . . Hillary Clinton the Person, the actual flesh-and-blood human being, is wildly unappealing. She is at best awkward and boring; she is at worst cold and petulant . . .
It’s routine. So managed. She did the same in 2008 using a 90-second video clip.
I’m not just starting a campaign. I’m starting a conversation — with you, with America.
Aww, she wants to talk with little ol’ me.
Because nothing says “dialogue” like a pre-recorded video with only one person in the room.
This figure of Pittacus of Mytilene, one of the Seven Wise Men of ancient Greece, was in the garden of the house of a woman named Julia Felix, a resident of Pompeii.
