SOLAR IMPULSE 2 completes global circumnavigation trip, demonstrates potential of clean energy aviation.
Solar Impulse 2 cruised at altitudes of up to 9,000 meters and at an average speed of between 45 and 90 km (12.5 and 25 miles) per hour.
The potential of 'clean energy aviation' eludes me....
FAILED TAKEOVER: Bernie Sanders leaves the Democrat party.
'GRILS': a new sexual gender preference for Democrats?

WORRIED ABOUT FOREIGN HACKING? Then you should support paper ballots, an idea whose time has come again.

It’s only three months until November....
EXACTLY: The Ego has landed.
UNEXPECTEDLY: Obama Talked More About Himself Than Hillary. I haven't checked the numbers myself, but as I've remarked in many prior posts over the last 7-1/2 years, every Obama speech is always a paean to himself.

RON FOURNIER: All hell breaks loose at the Democratic convention. As a journalist (items 1-20), Fournier is relatively decent; as a prognostigator (items 21-30), he's too invested in the status quo.
WHILE WE'VE BEEN WATCHING THE CONVENTIONS, Humana dropped out of most ObamaCare markets.
IT'S OFFICIAL: Hillary is the Democrat nominee.
DON'T MENTION THIS TO THE DEMOCRAT CONVENTION: Yes, the earth is cooling.

Tell John Kerry he can turn off his air conditioner.
FIRST COMMERCIAL DRONE DELIVERY: 7-11 slurpees.

What is this world coming to?
NEVER: When is President Obama going to admit ObamaCare is a colossal failure?
TRUMP: Tribune Of Poor White People. Long, so here's the key takeaway:
In the past few weeks, I’ve heard from so many of my elite friends some version of, “Trump is the racist leader all of these racist white people deserve.” These comments almost always come from white progressives who know literally zero culturally working class Americans. And I’m always left thinking: if this is the quality of thought of a Harvard Law graduate, then our society is truly doomed.
Donald Trump may not be the perfect candidate, but the know-it-all progressive ruling class described in the paragraph above is much, much worse for America.

HYPOCRISY ON DISPLAY: "The six union leaders who took the stage on Monday at the Democratic National Convention to condemn the richest one percent took home nearly $2.3 million in total compensation in 2015."
BECAUSE HE WON'T HAVE AIR FORCE ONE TO FLY AROUND ANY MORE: Obama to curb airplane emissions.
CLEARLY A PH.D. from this institution isn't worth the paper it's written on.
ARROGANCE AND CORRUPTION: The real story behind Deborah Wasserman Schultz’s resignation.
JEFF JACOBY: Failure of Turkey's coup was no victory for democracy.

I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that the United States of America should (1) declare war on the Islamic State in all its incarnations, and (2) quit supporting non-democratic governments.
AN EXCERPT from Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.
Contrary to what we learn from progressives in education and the media, the history of the Democratic Party well into the twentieth century is a virtually uninterrupted history of thievery, corruption and bigotry. American history is the story of Democratic malefactors and Republican heroes. Yes, it’s true.
But you'll never hear it from the Democrats or their media.
SURPRISED?
