Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud President Trump’s nomination of Don Willett and James Ho for spots on the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.  They also are cautiously optimistic that this NFL weekend might actually focus on football as three teams announce they will be standing for the national anthem.  And they throw up their hands as a anti-Trump elementary school librarian publicly rejects the donation of Dr. Seuss books from First Lady Melania Trump, while also slamming Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and falsely accusing Dr. Seuss of racism.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are all for a robust federal response to assist in the recovery and the rebuilding of the Texas coast, but they also don’t want to see the legislation turn into a spending spree for a bunch of unrelated projects for other parts of the country and they applaud political and policy figures for setting that priority now.  They also unload on the mayor of Berkeley, California, for calling for speakers like Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter not to speak on campus because it might set off the Antifa rioters.  And Alexandra explains the litany of double standards as the media and social media savage First Lady Melania Trump for wearing high heels to board Air Force One on her way to survey the devastating floods in Texas.

It’s Fun Being a Girl Again

 

So, I’m in the check-out aisle at Publix and spot a fashion magazine and begin to browse while the fellows in front of me unload their cart of copious amounts of booze and Count Chocula cereal (I’m in a resort town and do not judge). This August issue has both summer fashion and highlights of what’s trendy for Fall – double bonus! OK … I’m an older gal, I don’t live in a big city, and I’m no longer in the corporate world, but I do love to keep up on current trends. I’ll never submit to stuffy pantsuits or short grey hair and no make-up – too vain – no … too self-conscious and refuse to get old – hell – I’m a Baby Boomer – I broke ground burning bras – why stop now?

Inspired by beautiful Melania’s cool dress in Poland, I pour a glass of wine and hit the porch to scan the new styles for summer and what’s coming. I didn’t get far. OMG! Why does Chanel and others keep running ads of two women closely embracing, this one with boobs hanging out of her fall sweater? Michael Kors ads have improved. His models don’t look like they’re on death row and the clothes are actually flattering – instead of concentration camp chic – improvement.

New Loreal Paris Hair color Products – hmmm … pink, purple, peach and teal …”lumagrothe is modeling the teal, Natasha has mermaid hair … moving on. Maybelline’s new SuperStay Ink Matte lip color. I’ve seen this dark blood red, black or purple on several spokespersons from the Democratic Party on TV – they look like vampires … moving on.
