    CNN can no longer try to put a spin on sky-rocketing inflation to make this Democratic administration look even somewhat productive.

    Rahel Solomon, a CNN Business correspondent put it bluntly this week on the network saying that American life is “being shaped by the really high inflation,” which topped 8.6% in May.

    “Well, I think for a lot of Americans, their reality is being shaped by the really high inflation. We know, under the hood of that number, it’s really high energy prices, really high food prices. The costs of new and used cars have gone up, pretty much everything broad-based has gone up. The cost of shelter has gone up, which has some economists really concerned,” Solomon stated with candor.

    She went on to say if you are an American, it is really hard to “feel great” about the economy. And she used a personal story to highlight just how difficult things have become.

    Solomon said that even though her world is talking to economists, traders and analysts, she still is shocked when she goes to the grocery store and looks at the prices. She said it makes her understand how bad it is for others around the country.

    On CNN, Solomon was talking with anchor Ana Cabrera. They discussed a new Monmouth University Poll that revealed almost 9 in 10 American adults believe that the United States is moving in the “wrong directions.”

    The poll also found that inflation and record-high gas prices are what concern Americans the most right now. This should be alarming to the Democratic Party because they control both the White House and Congress.

    When you put together poll numbers like these with Biden’s low approval rating, it’s not hard to project what the midterm election results will be in November of this year.

    We do not have inflation figures for June yet from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But most experts agree that we will probably see the consumer price index show another inflation increase.

    Inflation continued to significantly rise in Europe last month.

    If we see an increase, the Federal Reserve will likely keep raising interest rates and some economists think this will lead America into another recession.

    With even CNN painting a bleak picture of the economy, the Biden Administration continues to push a trillion-dollar tax-and-spend plan. They spend much of 2021 dismissing the rising inflation as something transitory. And now they are claiming that spending more money and raising taxes will help reduce inflation.

    Here is just one of Biden’s risky plans they may enact socialist price controls on the healthcare system. This may in the beginning reduce the cost of prescription drugs.

    But even Biden’s advisors know that price controls have never worked. They reduce the price at first, but then it leads to shortages, and the customers are harmed.

    Price controls were tried in the 1970s with gasoline. But it led to long lines and shortages at gas stations.

    Rather than helping reduce costs, price controls will harm the economy and threaten high-paying manufacturing jobs. And they will lead to fewer new medicines.

    There was a study done by the Council of Economic Advisors that estimated that price controls could lead to 100 fewer lifesaving medicines over the next ten years. This could reduce the life expectancy of the average American by four months.

    We lived through the gas shortages in the ’70s and had to wait in long lines, but at least we were not sick while doing it.

    Even CNN can’t spin this reality.

    The Tale of the Body Brokers

      Every now and then, you hear a chilling tale that tells you just how far the nation has slipped. Criminal activity isn’t prosecuted nearly as frequently as it should. It allows other criminals to create unthinkable scams with the assumption that they’ll get away with it.

      Crime deterrents are clearly not a focus for the Democratic Party.

      That’s what has led to a mother-daughter team working a “body broker service” that they ran out of the funeral home the two owned.

      The team, based in Colorado, is being forced to appear in court to answer for charges of mail fraud – among other things.

      Megan Hess, the daughter, has pled guilty. Shirley Koch, the mother and owner of Sunset Mesa Funeral Home has pled not guilty – though there’s a change-of-plea hearing this week.

      The two women allegedly established Donor Services, a nonprofit, so that they could collect cadavers and body parts to sell to buyers within the scientific and medical community.

      Imagine finding out that your grandmother was not actually cremated or buried as the funeral home told you – and instead, was sold to the medical community for experiments.

      To say that you’d be horrified is an understatement.

      The indictment identifies that Hess and Koch received permission on some occasions from family members to collect tumors and small tissue samples. What they didn’t seek permission for is the other parts that they took – including torsos, limbs, and even heads. In some instances, they sold the entire body.

      When families were given the remains, it was not the remains of their loved ones, according to a report by the New York Times.

      Thanks to the profits that the scheme generated, the Sunset Mesa Funeral Home offered some of the most affordable cremation services around. They provided their services to the population of Montrose, Colorado – a city of approximately 20,000 people, about an hour outside of Grand Junction.

      The scheme ran from 2010 to 2018.

      The Daily Sentinel has also said that Hess and Koch took advantage of the poor and desperate so that they could maintain their inventory of body parts.

      Selling off body parts wasn’t the only thing the women were guilty of. Documents were often forged so that buyers thought that they were getting bodies that had a clean bill of health. Instead, some had tested positive for diseases like hepatitis and HIV. The documents, however, showed that all were negative.

      By Hess pleading guilty to mail fraud, some of the other counts of mail fraud along with a charge of transporting hazardous waste, will be dropped.

      Hess told the U.S. District Court that she’s taking responsibility and that “I exceeded the scope of the consent, and I’m trying to make an effort to make it right.”

      Many family members don’t believe that the plea agreement is enough. Others want to hear that the women admit guilt inside of an open court.

      What these women have done is illegal and more than a little disturbing. Yet, with most of their charges being dropped, they don’t face nearly the kind of sentencing that they should.

      It’s yet again proof that the Democrats aren’t really concerned about reducing the amount of crime. People can do the unthinkable and walk away with little more than a slap on the wrist.

      US Capitol Hosts Last WWII MOH Recipient as He Lies in Honor

        Unlike any other topic that has become political, the death of a servicemember can bring together people from both sides of the aisle. When this death is the last surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipient Hershel W. “Woody” Williams, it garners the attention of every politician in Washington.

        With House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer announcing his laying in honor at the Capitol building, they paused to say that this gesture is not just about Williams, but about all those who served in WWII. Announced on July 3rd, it’s fitting to have such an honor announced the day before Independence Day.

        In her remarks, Pelosi stated “Woody Williams embodied the best of America: living a life of duty, honor, and courage. When Woody lies in honor under the Capitol Dome, it will be with immense gratitude for his service that the Congress will pay tribute to this legendary hero, and all of the patriots who fought for our nation in World War II.”

        While her words towards our current military and many who have served are usually given with a degree of disgust and looking down her nose at them, these remarks came off as truly sincere. It’s almost as if she figured out that not all the patriots are bad people, even in her book.

        Schumer’s remarks much like Pelosi’s are not in keeping with the same tone that his past comments have been delivered with, but they certainly carried his distinctive NY sense of American pride that has largely been missing from anyone associated with the left.

        “This is only a small tribute to someone who has made as impactful contributions to America as Woody and all our brave soldiers who fought against tyranny and defended our country in World War II. Whether it was for his acts of bravery in combat or his tireless advocacy for all veterans and their families, Woody made our entire country, especially his fellow West Virginians, proud.”

        Given the immense dedication to the mission and his men, Williams’ award of the MOH is incredibly well deserved.

        With four riflemen providing cover fire for him, Williams fought alone for four hours going alone from Japanese trenches and pillboxes. Placing charges and retreating only to rearm himself and to get explosives, he singlehandedly cleared an immense pathway for his fellow Marines and brought great credit upon the Corps.

        Woody Williams was far more than just a hero; he was the greatest of the greatest generation, and a model for future generations. Thank you, @WoodyWilliams45, for your friendship and your lifetime of service to Veterans and Gold Star Families. pic.twitter.com/AgxuTYeNnf

        Seeing people from both sides of the aisle come together to honor this great man is something we need to see more of from the left. Even if it’s only window dressing to make their other positions seem more palatable to other Americans, coming together to honor a great man like this Marine is a great way to set the foundation for future bipartisan cooperation.

        While he takes his rightful place in the Capitol to lay in honor, this is a time to honor his legacy. We don’t do that by continuing the infighting, but by finding common ground.

        When his unit was under attack, Williams was willing to risk everything to save his Marines. He sought to find the hard answers to end the evil actions of the Japanese and take Iwo Jima. With four others to watch his back, there was only so much they could do with their rifles, and the rest of this mission was on Williams to a complete.

        Much the same, we are now in a similar battle with the left. As so many Americans are finding themselves helpless to take on this mode of activism and wokeness, we must remain strong, determined, and ready to face our attackers and to stand up for what is right for all Americans.

        We all have four men to watch our backs as we march towards victory, we just need to use them.

          Cost of Democrats Betrayal Hits Millions as Truth Comes Out regarding the True Cost of Their Actions

            0

            Alejandro Mayorkas is the criminal mastermind overseeing the southern border. He is Joe Biden’s Homeland Security chief and could not care about keeping the country safe from foreign invaders.

            Alejandro Mayorkas is the criminal mastermind overseeing the southern border. He is Joe Biden’s Homeland Security chief and could not care about keeping the country safe from foreign invaders. The man thinks that the border issues directly result from Donald Trump’s failed policies. And he is not afraid to share his pointless opinion of a belief based nothing on lies.

            The Democrats fought hard to keep Donald Trump from being able to finish the wall that would have secured the border and made life a lot safer for people living near it. A structure that would have kept illegals out and made life safe at the border. Mayorkas admitted that Joe Biden had wasted $72 million in shutting down all the wall construction.

            Mayorkas tried to make it sound like Donald Trump was the problem. He said, “We inherited a broken and dismantled system that is already under strain. It was not built to manage the current levels of migration flow. Only Congress can fix it. We have effectively managed an unprecedented number of noncitizens seeking to enter the United States.”

            Congress was in a position to fix the border while Trump was president. But the Democrats kept dragging their feet and refused to work with Republicans to develop a solution that would work.

            Millions of illegals continue to press the border, and all Biden does is put them on buses and release them into the country’s interior. The delusional man thinks that Biden is handling the border just fine. But letting illegals walk on across without intervention is not handling anything. It is letting a problem get out of control. And eventually, it will destroy the country in the process.

            Biden does not care about the country. All the old man cares about is himself and pacifying illegals. He refuses to stand up to the migrants. Instead of telling them to enter the country the legal way, he wants to let them enter any way they want. And that is putting American lives in danger near the border.

            Newsmax reports that “DHS released more than 80,000 of those migrants, raising the total number of illegal immigrants released under the Biden administration to 836,225.” The old man is on pace to set a world record for letting illegals into the country.

            Biden and his administration willfully wasted millions of dollars to stop securing the border. Terrorists have an open the door to enter the country from the south and be transported by the Biden express to their next target. And without intervention, there is no chance of catching them before killing innocent people. It is a clear signal that the president and his staff are not concerned about protecting the country.

            Mayorkas is blind to the truth. He is also in favor of ending Title 42 and binding the hands of border agents tasked with enforcing immigration laws. The Homeland Security Chief reasons that the 1944 law keeps people from being registered at the border; The agents turn them away.

            But registering people under Biden’s watch is not border control. It takes an inventory of the names of people he is getting into the country illegally. Biden’s approach to the border marks him as a traitor. He has willfully chosen to assist illegals in invading America.

            A president who cared about the country would have already secured the border or allowed the construction of the wall to be finished. The funds that Biden wasted would have better been used to provide the equipment agents need to do their job of protecting people.

            The president and his staff have proven that they cannot be trusted with American security. They are more concerned with confusing the issue to justify letting illegals wander across the border. But even more alarming than their betrayal is the frivolous spending of money they have wasted on opening the border.

            Summer Plans? Omicron Subvariant Says Not So Fast…

              The Democrats have had to give up a lot of control since the pandemic waned. All of a sudden, people are able to go wherever they please – and without a mask. Even the most liberal of cities and states have lifted mask mandates and social distancing rules so that people can have their American freedoms back.

              Oh, but wait.

              Just when you thought it was safe to go back into society, there’s an Omicron subvariant rearing its ugly head. And some researchers say that it could pose a problem for us here in the United States.

              Across the globe, we’ve seen some COVID infections soar as people try to return to normal. Even cruise cases have increased – and you need proof of vaccinations to get on board.

              Most countries have accepted the rise and fall of COVID cases as part of life now. The UK, for example, has said that they’re not planning on going into lockdown again. They’ve been there, they’ve done that, and people have the masks as souvenirs.

              Omicron Subvariant BA.2 is the official name that is causing some concern in the various health communities. What is it and should we be worried?

              Well, so far, Dr. Fauci hasn’t poked his head out of hiding to tell us how worried we need to be. So, either he’s not concerned, or he’s realized the hard truth that no one cares what he thinks about it.

              BA.2 has become the dominant strain in the U.S. – particularly in heavily populated areas like New York City. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that as of March 19, there was a 13” increase in COVID cases over the prior week – and the subvariant was responsible for approximately 35 percent of those cases.

              The symptoms for the subvariant are similar to what you’ve grown accustomed to with COVID-19. This includes everything from fever to cough to diarrhea. There are a few other symptoms that are particularly associated with omicron and its subvariant, including fatigue, congestion, and a runny nose.

              Is there any way to know for sure that you have the subvariant? Not unless you go into the hospital for some serious testing. You’ll pop positive for COVID with any of the home testing kits that you can get, so that will tell you everything you need to know about the need to quarantine away from others.

              Since the subvariant has so many symptoms as allergies and the common cold, most people don’t realize they have it. This, of course, leads to it spreading to more people.

              Dr. Rachael Lee, an associate professor of infectious disease said, “We will have to wait and see what exactly that means” regarding the symptoms and what people should do. Her advice is to stay hydrated.

              Sex in Space? It’s NASA’s Next Mission

                0

                NASA has had a number of interesting missions over the years. It’s how we’ve learned more about the planets, the possibility of life on Mars, and so much more.

                For the most part, most people view NASA’s missions as a way to learn about whether it’s going to be possible to live somewhere else. If we destroy Earth, will there be somewhere else that we can colonize?

                Well, NASA is ready to talk about sex in space. According to the government agency, no humans have had sex in space as of yet – and it’s time to do some studies in a low gravity environment. In fact, they say that it will be “crucial” for some of the long-haul missions to both the moon and Mars.

                Think about some of the missions that would require astronauts to be away from Earth for years. Are they supposed to simply stay celibate in the name of science? Healthy libidos make for healthy humans – and there’s no reason why anyone would have to stay celibate.

                As of right now, the people going into long-haul space missions are professional astronauts. But what happens when more people want to explore space travel – civilians, including couples, are more likely to go into space – and sex is likely to happen whether government space agencies want to admit it or not.

                This goes so far beyond the mile-high club. We’re talking about the 62-mile high club – and some researchers have said that it’s entirely possible that we’ll see space hotels in the future.

                In the past, NASA has taken the staunch response that “No humans have ever had sex in space.” The unspoken aspect of that is – that we know of. No one’s going to fess up to that because there have been no married couples launched into space together.

                One NASA spokesperson said that they are always looking at the health and safety of crew members. The Human Research Program looks at the various hazards of human spaceflight. “Should a future need for more in-depth study on reproductive health in space be identified, NASA would take the appropriate steps.”

                Imagine signing up for that study. Free trip to space. Must be willing to have sex in space. Observations will be made in the name of science. It sounds quite voyeuristic.

                Although NASA isn’t interested in committing to such a study right now, there have been many scientists who have talked about the need to have sex in space for the purpose of colonizing a new planet. We’re likely at least a few decades away from such a thing.

                There is another possibility that researchers want to explore. A trip to Mars is anticipated to take between seven and nine months each way. Additionally, many would want to live for a year or more on the surface, using space dome housing.

                It is possible that astronauts could have sex in space, conceive a child, and give birth in space – all while away from planet Earth.

                Is it possible? Is it safe? Are there any issues? There’s no way of knowing until such an experiment is done. And it would be much easier to know about any side effects or problems in a controlled experiment instead of dealing with an “oops.”

                Canadian scientists seem particularly eager to study sex in space. “Rocket science may take us to outer space; it will be human relationships that determine if we thrive.”

                Studies on the ISS are looking at sex among animals on board first. If there’s success, it may pave the way to humans having sex – and from there, space tourism may become more of a possibility.

                US Air Force’s War Capability Tumbles to 70%… 50-Year-Old Planes Can’t Win a War

                  0

                  For the past four years, the Air Force has made a concerted effort to fill…

                  For the past four years, the Air Force has made a concerted effort to fill every stall in its corral with war-ready aircraft. The goal is to be able to react in record time and at full strength should the signal be sounded. But things haven’t been going so well.

                  In the fiscal year 2021, out of every 10 planes needed to complete missions, only seven were available. This caused the delay of combat missions, routine operations, and pilot training. The planes were sitting in hangers with their engine parts strewn everywhere.

                  Mission-capable rates are used to determine the readiness of nearly 40 of the Air Force’s essential aircraft. In 2020 the rate was bad at 72.7%, but 2021 saw it drop even further to 71.5%. The lowest it’s ever been was in 2018 when it toppled to a historical low of 70% but that record might soon be broken if action isn’t taken much sooner than later. 

                  Financially, it’s U.S. taxpayers who are getting the unlubricated end of the shaft. Some of these planes are over 50 years old and the required maintenance to keep them mission-worthy is staggering if they can be fixed at all. As long as this status quo is allowed to continue the reliability of the Air Force to successfully complete its mission, both in war and in peacetime, remains in serious question. 

                  The Air Force blames lawmakers for getting in the way. They don’t want to foot the bill for replacing outdated aircraft. It’s a lot of money and they have voters to consider. Maintenance costs and such aren’t as widely publicized as spending billions on new planes would be.  

                  The flyboys keep submitting plans year after year like they’re told to do, but year after year they keep being rejected. As it stands now those plans are caught up in a quagmire until at least the fiscal year 2023 so keep your fingers crossed over this Russia/Ukraine thing. The Air Force isn’t ready for that sort of thing just yet. 

                  Mission-ready rates in the 70 percentile are not going to be enough against a major adversary such as China or Russia. Heritage Foundation defense expert John Venable, also a former fighter pilot, put it this way. 

                  “Think about running a war against Russia or China, where you’ve got to generate all of your aircraft in order to make that happen. The math does not bode well.”

                  Seven fighter-type aircraft which include B-1B Lancer bombers, CV-22B Osprey air-lifters, and F-22A Raptor fighter jets, are at less than 60% operable and they’re not being fixed any time soon. They’ve had to take a backseat to planes needed for daily operations.

                  In 2020, had they been called upon, only 41% of B-1s would have made it out of the starting gate. Those that were down had extensive engine problems and had been down for quite some time. 

                  Searching for the bright side of this conundrum, 90% of remote-controlled Reaper attack drones are waiting to fly off the shelves at a moment’s notice. But don’t get too excited. First, you have to get the drones to where they need to be and this requires, you guessed it, the good old USAF and its broken-legged horses. 

                  Reaper drones have a range of 1,150 miles. China is 6,903 miles from its closest U.S. border. Get the picture? In the long run, it would be less expensive to replace the antique aircraft than what we’re currently spending to attempt patching them up. Then there’s the capability of winning a war to consider…

                  Where’s Liz Cheney? Not Listening to her Constituents, That’s Where

                    As you likely know, Wyoming Republican House Representative Liz Cheney isn’t exactly on the best…

                    As you likely know, Wyoming Republican House Representative Liz Cheney isn’t exactly on the best of terms with her party and hasn’t been for a while. You’d think that would mean she’d be cozying up to party leaders and her constituents alike, hoping that they’ll show some grace and let her keep her seat come November of this year.

                    And yet, it seems she’s been doing the exact opposite.

                    Not only is she not spending any time with them, but she’s also taken to choosing liberal media over them.

                    As The New York Times recently reported, it’s been a whole two years since Cheney has appeared at a single state party function. And it’s been nearly as long since she’s been seen at a chapter-level event. In fact, she’s only had one in-person event with the people of Wyoming since Veterans Day and Saturday.

                    But now, she’s even avoiding those who put her in office in the first place.

                    On Saturday night, the Wyoming Republican Party held a black-tie fundraiser event in Rock Springs, something most in both her party and caucus would have blocked out on their calendar for months. and yet, Cheney was not in attendance.

                    Instead, she was some 200 miles away at the Wyoming Press Association’s annual convention in Casper.

                    That’s right; she was wining and dining with members of the media rather than the voters whose voice she is supposed to be.

                    According to what Cheney told the Times, she doesn’t have time for the “crazies” who put her in office. Of course, this is exactly the reason that she’s on the outs with her party, to begin with.

                    Cheney was one of a few Republicans who joined with those on the liberal left to impeach former President Donald Trump during House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s second attempt to oust him. As a result, Pelosi rewarded her and fellow turncoat RINO Adam Kinzinger of Illinois to be part of her kangaroo circus committee to “investigate” the January 6 Capitol incursion.

                    Now, both Cheney and Kinzinger’s vote against Trump would be understandable if their states had made it known that they were against Trump. But as it turns out, they didn’t. In fact, Cheney’s constituents gave Trump his highest percentage of the vote in the country in 2020, coming in at just under 70 percent, according to the Times.

                    Still, Cheney voted against him.

                    This made it pretty clear, if it wasn’t already, that Cheney had no interest in actually doing her job, namely speaking for the people of Wyoming. Instead, she seems to only be after the power and prestige that her seat could bring, much as her father did as Vice President under George W. Bush.

                    And her party has noticed.

                    In January, the Republican State Central Committee held a straw poll vote between Cheney and her primary challenger and Trump-endorsee Harriet Hageman. Hageman won in a landslide with a vote of 59-6.

                    And on Friday, as Cheney has since refused to attend several other party events and opportunities to meet with her constituents, the Republican National Committee officially voted to censure both her and Kinzinger.

                    All of that, of course, comes after the fact that the Wyoming Republican Party’s Central Committee already voted to not even recognize Cheney as one of their own back in November, officially giving her the title of RINO (Republican in name only).

                    Naturally, the Times did well to paint her as more of a martyr than one who had traded sides and ignored the wishes and needs of those entrusted to her. According to their article, she has been “forced… into a kind of exile from Wyoming Republican Party apparatus,” and all because she voted to impeach Trump and not side with the literal millions who question both the integrity of our elections, as well as what the left say happened on January 6 in Washington D.C.

                    Undoubtedly, her party doesn’t see her as quite the victim the Times makes her out to be. And comments like her saying she’s not even going to try to convince those “crazies” of her innocence aren’t going to make them see her side of the story any clearer.

                    Chances are, she just signed away the death of her career with that last one.

                     

                    Minnie Mouse is Getting a Makeover…to Look Like Hillary Clinton

                      0

                      Remember Minnie Mouse with her cute, polka dot skirt and her bright yellow heels? She’s…

                      Remember Minnie Mouse with her cute, polka dot skirt and her bright yellow heels? She’s been a Disney icon for years. Every child who has ever visited a Disney theme park can remember when Minnie waved to them – and what she was wearing.

                      Apparently, Minnie is getting a makeover. No one can leave tradition alone. The Mouse has been wearing the same thing for decades. Somehow, it’s no longer good enough.

                      There’s only one problem with her makeover. She’s not going more stylish. She’s not being outfitted in skinny jeans or cargo pants. Instead, her new outfit looks more like she got lost inside of Hillary Clinton’s closet.

                      Disneyland Paris is the first to announce that Minnie will be getting a new outfit. It is being designed by Stella McCartney, a fashion designer. This is all part of a chance to celebrate Disneyland Paris’ anniversary.

                      The French theme park is honoring Women’s History Month in March, so what better way than to make sure that Minnie Mouse looks like a proper woman?

                      Now, you might be wondering how many women actually wear pantsuits. It’s certainly a “power” move, but is Minnie the kind of powerhouse you would expect to wear a pantsuit? No. She giggles and walks around carrying flowers, and she pines after Mickey in the cutest way. But to suddenly make her into a businesswoman, especially one who looks like Hillary Clinton, is a bit absurd.

                      “Stella McCartney has designed Minnie Mouse’s very first pantsuit, and it’s gorgeous,” Disney tweeted out, complete with a picture.

                      Gorgeous is certainly one word for it. It’s a dark blue suit with black polka dots. So, they let Minnie keep her polka dots, but she’s in darker colors than what she’s ever been before. And, they took away her yellow heels in favor of black flats.

                      It seems that Minnie Mouse is going to have an identity crisis by the time Stella McCartney is done dressing her.

                      Oh, but there’s a reason for it all. She’s a “symbol of progress for a new generation.” Ahh, there it is. We knew that there had to have been a more symbolic meaning to the outfit change. Perhaps the next thing we should expect is that Minnie decides that she doesn’t want to make eyes at Mickey. Perhaps another girl mouse will come along in Disney that Minnie decides she needs to start pining for.

                      McCartney’s iconic costume is a blue tuxedo using “responsibly sourced fabrics.” It’s clear that she used that as an inspiration for the famous Mouse’s new outfit.

                      As for what people can look forward to if they plan on visiting the Paris theme park, there will be Minnie Mouse t-shirts, also designed by McCartney, that help to honor International Women’s Rights Day.

                      McCartney said of her relationship with Minnie, “What I love about Minnie is the fact that she embodies happiness, self-expression, authenticity, and that she inspires people of all ages around the world. Plus, she has such great style!”

                      Well, she did until she suddenly got dressed to mirror Hillary Clinton. It’s only a matter of time before Orlando and California’s theme parks decide to jump on the bandwagon. Perhaps they can even get Clinton to share with the mouse. Then, we can abandon all sense of tradition entirely.
