"His campaign is having a fundraiser on Aug. 25 with tickets costing $100": I'd say he's lagging the $32,400 a head ticket cost to attend one of the leader's fundraising events!
When the POTUS isn't fundraising he's vacationing. Not much time left for those world crisis nuisances.

Food for thought.

I wonder how many college educated people are still at a minimum wage job after a year. Again, a stepping stone or temporary job until something better.

Minimum wage jobs are not meant to be a way of life. Most people use them as a stepping stone up the ladder of success. If you are still making minimum wage after a year without an increase or promotion you may need basic jobs skills training and may want to listen carefully to what your performance evaluation is trying to tell you.

The "party" president! Actually, he left the White House the morning after Benghazi for campaigning in Las Vegas then on to Colorado. We finding out that he was MIA that night and missed the previous 5 days of intelligence briefings. . Almost 400 fundraisers in six years and 176 rounds of golf. That's where his priority lies.

For years, the tobacco industry promoted cigarettes, at one time even saying the were healthy! As any long term smoker will tell you, it is VERY difficult to quit. Many smokers try everything - cold turkey, programs, nicotine patch, wellbutrin, hypnosis with a 92% failure rate. Smokers are finding the e-cigs are an instant cure for their habit, often giving up cigarettes on the very day they start using e-cigs. They can vape with or without nicotine, or slowly reduce the amount of nicotine down to zero when they're ready.
The giant tobacco industry and pharma aren't interested in your health, they are only interested in your wallet. They and the FDA are trying to put a stop to the e-cig business. Well, actually tobacco industry is now venturing into that market. but they continue to try to say that e-cigs will harm children because they contain nicotine which is highly addictive - no duh! Who's using e-cigs? The vast majority are those that were already addicted to regular cigarettes.
According to the American Lung Association, There are approximately 600 ingredients in cigarettes. When burned, they create more than 7,000 chemicals. At least 69 of these chemicals are known to cause cancer, and many are poisonous. http://www.lung.org/stop-smoking/abou...
E-liquid typically consists of four main ingredients: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine and flavoring. Some without nicotine.

So it's come down to it takes a law on the books before a company will do the right thing? We don't need a law that prevents them from concealing their defects, don't we already have that? We just need to make it hurt if they do.They need to be held accountable all the way to the top. Fire their a**es and no golden parachutes or golden handshakes allowed. In fact, they should be forced to return any bonuses received and penalized on top of that.
And while we're at it, explain to me why we need to pay government employees bonuses for doing their job? How many private citizens get bonuses? Rare.

You can choose to have sex with your cousin, sister, son or your dog but it doesn't make it right and there are consequences both medically and morally. Some people would argue that it's their choice or that they were born that that way.

Good 'ole Ross Pe-ro. Whatever happened to him and his flash cards? Can't help but wonder if our world would be different if he was actually elected. Too bad people are more interested in voting in the "puppet" rather than the person who could actually lead this country.
