Hi,
Did any of you notice the meteor that hit in Michigan last night?
We heard there were reports of sightings from Illinois to Pennsylvania, and in southern Canada. It was like thunder and lightening, but was actually a sonic boom, and it hit they think in Macomb county, MI. There was a 2.0 earthquake.

No joke. Curious if anyone there noticed it. We were startled but thought it may be some sort of lightening at the time.

Lise Yesterday at 20:44
Hi Jackie, heard nothing here in Ontario but it was on the news about the meteor. No mention of the earthquake.

Jackie Yesterday at 23:06
They have mentioned an area near Howell, now. It does not seem they have a definite ground zero. But they are definitely talking small quake.
Twitter followers are going to have fun with it.
Thanks for answering.

Tracy Yesterday at 23:57
saw that on the news tonight Jackie; they showed a great clip of the meteor over a highway/freeway. also saw a really cool clip with people climbing over ice blocks on a frozen lake in Ohio!

This gave me a bit of a laugh.

The "girthers" do not believe the details of Trump's medical.

[theweek.com]

I found the whole thing a bit dubious too. If he is healthy, the rest of us are practically immortal.:-D

When he ends his presidency he should get a job doing McDonald's ads. I could see it happening...sadly.

So the 11 year old girls hijab attack never happened. Too bad Trudeau had to give the incident so much attention with his tweet, before the facts were checked. Sigh...
I had a sneaking suspicion it was a lie. My initial reaction was that the little girl probably doesn't want to wear the hijab, so she made it up. Some of the girls at my daughters school would remove their hijabs on school trips, when they were away from the school and their siblings. One of the girls was caught by a younger sibling without her hijab and she received severe punishment. They post all photos on their social media without the hijabs, which the parents have no idea about.
The media should not have been informed or spread the news of this story until it was investigated properly. She is a minor, and even her name was released. I just hope she isn't in any big trouble with her family who were so quick to judge the community. Or, the worse case scenario - was she coached to tell the lie? Whatever the truth is, I feel sorry for her, and angry that this has escalated to such levels.

Lynn Yesterday at 14:43
I had my doubts when she spoke on the day it was reported.

I wonder too about the source of the lie...like you said,she took it off and when seen used this story, or something else was planned by others around her?

T Yesterday at 16:07
The story has really took off in the media since I posted this. As my kids say, the noise "cricket" is heard from Trudeau, John Tory and Wynn now that we know it's a hoax. How dense can people be? Toronto School District were immediately all on board to push this, and no-one for 1 second thought to doubt the child? As said, I feel sorry for the girl, and from experience, I know many young Muslim girls do not like to wear the hijab and do not like the strict rules they must live by.

Trump Demands Poem on Statue of Liberty Be Revised to Exclude #@*%!hole Countries.

“I don’t know the entire poem, but it’s something like ‘Give us your tired, your poor, your yadda yadda yadda,’ ” he said.

I heard yesterday Trump has a penchant for eating hamburgers and going to bed at 6:30 p.m. With any luck he'll end up like Elvis wink

Hey Jude Friday, 5 January 2018 19:31
Just also read he eats a lot of fast food because he is afraid of being poisoned. But the fast food will eventually kill him if he's not careful. You can't exist on a diet of fast food all the time. Its just a really sad, sad state of affairs.

Pete Souza was Obama's official photographer. This year, he used his own work to emphasize the contrast between Trump and Obama.
Yet 'nobody' could be mad at Obama, because an independent citizen was doing the tweeting.
Brilliant commentary on America at the present moment.

Here is Souza's Instagram so you can bask in humanity, instead of sinking when thinking about the orange goblin.

"A Dentist-Turned-Horticulturalist Made a Record Just for Plants
Dr. George Milstein believed that all plants needed to grow was water, sunlight, nutrients, and a swinging-Sixties soundtrack".

Satire from The Borowitz Report:

Kim Jong Un Fears that G.O.P. Tax Bill Makes his plan to destroy U.S. redundant.

Kim is concerned that his scheme to turn the U.S. into an uninhabitable hellhole has been upstaged by a similar proposal from congressional Republicans.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump’s use of the name “Pocahontas” at a White House event honoring Navajo veterans was not a racial slur, a prominent white expert said on Monday.
“If some Native Americans were offended by the use of this term, I’m sorry that they’re so wrong,” the expert said. “As a white person, I think I’m in a better position to know about this stuff.”
She also defended the decision to honor the Navajo veterans near a portrait of Andrew Jackson, who is widely reviled by Native Americans. “Before we held the ceremony, we consulted with a number of other white experts, and we all agreed that Andrew Jackson was great,” she said.
At times, the white expert seemed exasperated at having to explain to Native Americans what was a racial slur and what was not. “Look, I can explain it to them, but it’s real time-consuming, and I have a lot of other stuff to do,” she said.
In closing, the Caucasian said that accusing Trump of intentionally offending the Navajos was absurd. “No one knows more about offending people than Donald Trump,” she said.

Trump Claims Voice on “Access Hollywood” Tape Is Actually Hillary Clinton Imitating Him

“It’s so obvious that Bill came up with that,” Trump said of the tape’s infamous “locker-room talk.”

I am very worried that there is no easy path to remove a President that clearly is not connected with reality from his job. Something needs to be done to remove this clown from the job.

I admit that I do laugh at the daily sh*&storm and circus that is the WH, but there are many days that the former reality star, now resident of the office, is so seriously off the rails that it is hard to laugh.

He is a disgraceful human, and his enablers are (WORD OF THE YEAR) COMPLICIT.
