The Republican Party has spoken, after so many months of Flip Flop with “The Donald”, finally they have conceded giving Mr. Donald Trump the nomination he needs to move forward for his dream to become the next President Of The United States of America.




StopViolenceViolence  in America – is at an all-time high. Many believe our nation is definitely divided. Too much violence and not enough gun control are the key issues which will come to play in this year election. Let’s hope Donald Trump is up to the challenge if he wins on November 8th.

Arturo (1985 – July 3, 2016) was a polar bear living in Mendoza Zoological Park inMendoza, Argentina, the only polar bear living in the country. He was born in the United States and transferred to Argentina in 1993. His companion, a female named Pelusa, died of cancer in 2012. The living conditions of the cage Arturo resided in were controversial, as temperatures reach up to 40°C in Argentina, and the pool in Arturo’s cage was only 20 inches deep. Animal rights activists had, in response, dubbed Arturo the “world’s saddest animal” and promoted a petition to have him moved to Assiniboine Park Zoo, a zoo inWinnipeg, Canada. The petition was created by Laura Morales of Hamilton, Ontario. It gained considerable attention after the hashtag #Freearturo began trending on Twitter. Supporters of the petition also noted that a polar bear died in Buenos Aires in December 2012 due to excessive heat, and argued that Arturo exhibited symptoms of depression and other mental health problems.

As of July 19, 2014, the petition had over 400,000 signatures and had been endorsed by Newt Gingrich and Cher. Assiniboine Park Zoo responded that while they would’ve gladly accepted Arturo there, they did not have the authority to do so unless Argentina agreed to transfer him there and that the Mendoza zoo could not supply the necessary medical records to make such a trip possible.

On July 24, 2014, the director of the Mendoza Zoo, Gustavo Pronotto, told the Associated Press that Arturo was too old to be moved to Canada. In social media, people also advocated for Arturo to be moved to Canada. and Twitter hashtag #FreeArturo.

On July 3, 2016, Arturo died.

The Woman Card– As Donald Trump favorites calls her, Is Hilary really up to the challenge to become our next president? The odds are strongly against her. The majority of American are seeking justice and old values to be imposed once against with-out thinking about the consequences it may bring. They might elect Donald Trump just because he voices their “anger” and frustration. Trump doesn’t bring solutions to the table. He brings more showmanship, he treats this nation with ignorance. The solutions may sound good, but a real thinker always knows “what may look good on paper, may not actually work in reality.”
