Caught My Eye…

Friday the 13th is still better than Monday the whatever. – Unknown.

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!

If you are a first-time visitor, CME is posted right here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.

Topics that I am providing commentary about today include Money Laundering, the Montana American Indian Caucus respond to Trump, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, the VP is coming to Billings, the Great Falls Rally fact-checked, and One More Thing!

Election 2016: Turning the Corner?

This morning I am sitting in my office (also used as a bunker and a basement) looking at my Hillary Clinton bumper sticker. It was free. It’s not the greatest bumper sticker ever made, but free is free.

I believe the information listed on the bumper sticker is unclassified. It could become classified at a later date.

I have not seen any offers for free bumper stickers from other candidates, which is a bummer. Send me an email if you know about any free bumper stickers from Presidential candidates. By the way, getting a free bumper sticker does not mean that I am voting for her or any other candidate.

Now back to Hillary Clinton. Conservatives may find it hard to believe, but Clinton may have turned the corner on the email controversy. What’s around that corner is yet to be seen. It could be Joe Biden!

We did discover some very interesting pieces of information from the latest batch of emails that were released. We now know that Clinton enjoys watching “Parks and Recreation” and “The Good Wife.”
