2016 Presidential Endorsements

I thought that it would be interesting to keep a running tally of the 2016 Presidential endorsements from prominent newspapers, websites and magazines.  The lists are not very long at this point (especially for Donald Trump) but it's still early, they should be coming soon.

For Hillary Clinton

Charlie Sykes

If there's one good thing to come out of Donald Trumps rise it's that many in the right wing media are having their "come to Jesus" moments.   One of them is Charlie Sykes and I commend him for it.  America's at it's best when we have 2 sane parties that are able to set aside their differences and are willing to work together to solve our problems.   We haven't had that in quite some time and I believe that talk radio has played a significant part in that.  Read the below comments, they are completely on the money IMO.

Riviera Implosion

So long Riviera!  It was a nice run!



I stayed at the Riviera several times, I found it to be a nice affordable spot in the middle of the strip.

In it's heyday, I hear it was quite the happening place to be.

Most Influential Hispanics in America

Who do you think are the Most Influential Hispanics in American politics today?

Here's my list:
I'm sure there are more, these seem to be the most prominent though.  I listed them alphabetically.  For the record, if I ranked them by positive influence, I'd have Becerra, Perez, Sotomayer and the Castro brothers on top of the list, with Cruz, Rubio and Martinez at the bottom.  For the record, for this list, I also don't feel that influential necessarily means having a positive influence either (thus the inclusion of Cruz, Rubio and Martinez).

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad - starring Will Smith & Margot Robbie.  After reading some of the horrible reviews for this movie I almost decided to skip it, I'm glad I didn't because it wasn't bad at all.  I'm sensing some comic book fans felt it strayed a bit from the original story but since the story was new to me I didn't have that problem.  Don't get me wrong here, it has no Oscars in it's future but I found it to be a nice summer getaway for a couple of hours.  It's basically about a group of misfit badass super villains who are forced to work together to fight the evil Enchantress, who is intent on destroying the world.  I enjoyed that they incorporated fellow DC comic characters like Batman, Superman and the Joker into the story.  Will Smith did a nice job as Deadshot.  I thought that Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn was a lot of fun (although some disagree).   Jared Leto was great as the Joker (although some seem to disagree), he made him as creepy as they come (I could see a Joker/Haley Quinn spinoff).  I can't honestly say anyone else on the cast really stood out, not that they were bad, just that they probably weren't given enough to make their characters stand out more.  Overall, if you're a DC Comic fanatic, you may have a hard time stomaching this one, but for everyone else I think it's worth a watch.

I will give it 3 out of 5 stars (*****).

Ann Kirkpatrick

She's got my vote.  It's time for John McCain to fade off into the sunset.
