In USA political jargon October Surprises influence the outcomes in November wether deliberately planned, or spontaneously.

For the past few years, Republicans have been deniers about a long list of issues that are coming to bite them back, front, up, down, and every which way it can.

Liars and deniers have a way of being exposed at the end of the day. The truth will become obvious as this month evolves and the winds of time begin to shine.

Can anyone tell me how we got to screaming profanities and assaulting people on stage during Oscars LIVE broadcasts?

The whole world saw a man destroy the image he curated by his violent actions at The Oscars. While Chris Rock was presenting the Oscar for Best Documentary, he delivered a monologue before presenting. Rock said of Jada Pinkett-Smith, who was sporting a bald head at the event, “Jada, I love ya. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see ya.”

This is why should rub your car windshield with a potato. How many times have woke up to find a cold frozen car windshield?

My old friend, who I like o call Brother Moon says this not only is delaying the departure to our destination, but it is a nuisance and a hassle.  Our options are to scrape off the ice or deice the windshield with a store-bought or homemade deicer or use a cut piece of potato. https://youtu.be/AErz6zswKxc

I first met Ed Bradley while I was a journalism student in graduate school. I interviewed him for my thesis on Minorities in the Media.

In 1976,  Ed Bradley became CBS' first-ever African-American correspondent to the White House. The last time I saw Ed before he died, he was standing on the corner of 66 Street and Broadway. I had finished lecturing my journalism students at NYIT. We spoke briefly, but he never said anything about his leukemia. Ed was friendly each and every time we spoke.

Here’s one for the bearing it all files. Attention shoppers, there’s barely time to exit the store safely because there’s a bear over there.

The AP reports that Southland Shoppers were startled to see a bear cub browsing the offerings at a Los Angeles supermarket. 

Video aired by CBS 2 shows the small bear strolling the aisles on Saturday at the Ralphs store in the Porter Ranch area of the San Fernando Valley.

What can we expect from a liar who worships Hitler, pays others to take his tests, wears cakes of makeup, and fake hair and small???

The big lie or große Lüge is a gross distortion or misrepresentation of the truth, used especially as a propaganda technique. The Nazi Germany expression was coined by Adolf Hitler when he dictated his 1925 book, Mein Kampf, to describe the use of a lie so colossal that no one would believe that someone could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.
