So Donald Trump is afraid of Megyn Kelly..

Dear Mr. Trump,

The last time you faced Megyn Kelly, you were a little perturbed at her questioning of you under the category of electability.  In responding to her question about your choice of words when you feud with others, especially women, you took umbrage and directed a few shots back.

While you have gained some sympathy for being targeted unfairly, you seem to have not only decided you don’t want to face her again, but you want to leverage your good polling numbers as a mob call to not have to endure her determined questioning.

Here’s your problem:  Poll numbers are not solid for any candidate at any time.  One wrong move, and you’re going to see people leave in droves.  In fact, this may actually be the one time you discover, most likely the hard way, that being a narcissist and a prima donna may see the beginning of your decline.

No one questions your business savvy.  We all know your ability to entertain.  But you’re not invincible nor invulnerable.  It’s pretty clear who put the crack in your armour.  The question is, will you take the time to repair it, make good with the voters and those on the fence, and demonstrate diplomacy in seeking a resolution – or will you try to ignore it and hope it doesn’t turn into a mortal wound that will leave a trail of blood seeing your political corpse danced upon from historians years down the road?

I don’t have any problem with you being the President.  However, you will find that people in this country will only tolerate your belligerent and disrespectful behavior towards a person of Megyn Kelly’s character for so long.  If the momentum shifts in her favor, you will have lost a potential ally in your bid to become President.  She can’t make anyone become the Chief Executive, but you might end up with a mortally wounded campaign.

Be the big man you espouse to be to your followers.  Do the debate.  Stop this silliness.

Sonoran Conservative.

Can’t make this up: The NY Times is worried about Sgt Bergdahl’s future employment

Oh For FFS...In an article regarding Sgt. Bergdahl’s desertion charge, the NY Times ponders..

Another question is whether the Army will give Sergeant Bergdahl an honorable discharge if he is found guilty of desertion. For members of the military, an honorable discharge is no small matter, and not getting one can hinder not only a veteran’s job prospects, but the entirety of how a service member look back on his or her career.

If you are convicted in any courts martial, you’re going to get a dishonorable discharge.  This may be upsetting to liberals, but it is a felony conviction, and he’ll have the same problems as any other felon.

As for the NY Times and their crack team of reporters, see the graphic in the upper right.

I saved a screenshot, just in case…

James O’Keefe Strikes Again: Cornell’s Response is “What the..?”

cornell_isisJames O’Keefe strikes again, this time asking  Assistant Dean of Students at Cornell University, Joseph Scaffido, about the possibility of student organizing a new group sympathetic to ISIS and other radical islamic groups.

As stated in this NY Post article, the guy is either completely ignorant of the world, or he is politically correct to such an extreme and takes care not to offend anyone.

Starbucks and the Community: Let’s talk about race over coffee!

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz says we need to talk. From Fortune Magazine:

In a video addressing Starbucks’ nearly 200,000 workers, 40% of whom are members of a racial minority, Schultz dismissed the notion that race was too hot a topic business-wise for Starbucks to tackle.

“I reject that. I reject that completely,” he said in the video address. “It’s an emotional issue. But it is so vitally important to the country,” he continued, pointing to that the United States is “so much better” than what the current state of race relations portray it to be.

Liberals might be Happier than Conservatives

From the Washington Postsmileyface

The reason, they say, is that political conservatives have a tendency to self-aggrandize. When they compared happiness self-reports with tests that measured a tendency to enhance one’s better qualities, they found that the happiness gap could be explained by a self-enhancement gap. In other words, liberals were being more honest about their personal pitfalls.

Essentially, a previous study that had conservatives self-report their happiness suggests that Conservatives were exaggerating and that perhaps, Liberals, were just not being modest.

In the new study, they analyzed photos and posts from both Linked and Twitter.  Apparently, Conservatives tweet more angry and post not as happy pictures as Liberals.. or something.   All because of what you post tells you how much happier or sadder you are.

*sigh*

Hope you all are having a nice day like I am!  🙂

Protecting the Legacy of Obama: The Impact of the Media

sharyl-attkissonSharyl Attkisson posts this and quotes a story from NY Magazine.  Here is the relevant portion (bold mine):

That October, Myers couldn’t get Williams to air a segment about how the White House knew as far back as 2010 that some people would lose their insurance policies under Obama­care. Frustrated, Myers posted the article on NBC’s website, where it immediately went viral. Williams relented and ran it the next night. “He didn’t want to put stories on the air that would be divisive,” a senior NBC journalist told me. According to a source, Myers wrote a series of scathing memos to then–NBC senior vice-president Antoine Sanfuentes documenting how Williams suppressed her stories.

I have been reading Attkisson’s stories for the past several months that document her struggles with CBS to attempt to get investigative reporting on the air.  The major networks all deny that there is some bias, and even today, some journalists will look you square in the eye and deny it when you know they have their fingers crossed behind their backs.
