Trump Explained: Monkeys live in groups with a clear hierarchical structure

In September, the newspaper published a piece on understanding Trump’s popularity through our evolutionary history. “Monkeys live in groups with a clear hierarchical structure, whereby one dominant male, the alpha, is boss. The alpha-male decides who can eat, who can interact and who is allowed to pick his fleas,” wrote Mark van Vugt as translated by WorldMeets.US. “Intimidation and bullying is part of his daily repertoire.

Best Case Scenario

The best thing that could happen to this country right now would be if someone gave Prosecutor Preet Bharara evidence of Donald Trump receiving a favor from Senator Clinton in exchange for his contributions to her or her Foundation.

Liar Liar and Media Bias

From Rod Dreher: http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/facebook-what-the-media-dont-let-you-see/

Excerpts:

Donald romancing progressives, Hillary courting Bush Republicans - WTF?

Donald is romancing progressives, while Hillary is taking Progressives for granted and courting Bush Republicans.

This is totally insanity.

Do any other Progressives feel unwanted and abused by the Corporate Democrat Party?

We Progressives are like runaway teens lost on the streets, tired, hungry, cold, rejected by our family, - Well, big daddy pimp Trump is there to welcome us in while mommy won't even answer our phone calls.

I guess I'm going Green.

Inside The Conservative Effort To Woo A Third Party Challenger

[quote]Inside The Conservative Effort To Woo A Third Party Challenger

The hope is that a third party candidate would win enough states to prevent either Clinton or Trump from winning the necessary 270 electoral votes. Under that scenario, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives would choose the president, and these activists hope the body would choose their third-party candidate.

Bernie is the electable one

According to many polls, Sanders wins by a greater margin over Trump. He doesn't have the fatal baggage of voting for the Iraq War, watching WalMart hide $76 billion in profits in the Cayman Islands tax haven and being a special interest lady funded by Wall Street and the fossil fuel industry.

The impending “Veepstakes” for both Donald ("Don’t-call-me-Rainman") Gump and Hillary

Assuming that neither of the presumptive, Republican and Democratic nominees are ultimately “indicted” before the 2016 General Election (an unlikely scenario, "yes" ,but hey, anything seems possible in 2016!), one of burning questions that is now on the minds of the US electorate, with regard to this year’s GOP-driven, “Presidential Reality Show” (aka the US Presidential Primaries) is, of course, the impending selections of each nominee's, Vice Presidential running mate.

Health Savings Accounts

Health savings accounts sound great.

[quote]Over $7,900 stolen from Tukwila woman's health savings account

TUKWILA, Wash. -- The use of health savings accounts has increased dramatically since the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

However, the accounts many people use only for medical emergencies are often out of sight out of mind until the day they’re needed, making the accounts prime targets for thieves.

A Tukwila woman learned that truth the hard way.

NEW YORK, May 6 (UPI) -- Top fundraisers for Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton have begun targeting one-time donors to former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, in a bid to woo those who are opposed to GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

Shocking... not. Looks like a Friday news dump.
