I would call it more a local problem

Not something to build a campaign issue on.

What get me is her reference to it being racist
by Steven Haninger / January 20, 2016 4:49 AM PST

But, today, it seems anything can be turned into shouts of racism. If she's so concerned for minorities, she's gotten this one backwards. White people are the minority there. BTW, I really agree with the linked article's closing remarks.

"Save the “that’s racist” accusations for situations that actually warrant it.

Being vigilant against true bigotry — a worthwhile posture — should involve taking racism more seriously."

over a year ago, and the EPA had been notified and did NOTHING about.........NOW it's being investigated (because of a Republican governor).......so this administration made it political in time for the elections.

Vets: Don't Blame Obama for Track Palin's Behavior

Don't blame President Obama for the PTSD that Sarah Palin claims her oldest son is battling.

That was the message Wednesday from the head of a New York City-based veteran's organization that has fought for years to get Iraq and Afghanistan war vets help with their post traumatic stress disorder.

Rieckhoff urged Palin to "resist the urge to politicize" PTSD.

fret about Sarah?...I think she's already "gone Rogue"

Sarah Palin is a no-show at Trump campaign event in Iowa

NORWALK, Iowa -- Wednesday marked the first day of Donald Trump's new partnership with Sarah Palin,

Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said in a text message on Wednesday morning that Palin was in Oklahoma City with him, ahead of the Tulsa rally, but he would not say why she did not join Trump in Norwalk, as was previously announced. Spokesmen for Palin have yet to return requests for comment.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
