MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

Gun control is a constant in the news these days, unfortunately.

The Zika virus fervor is sadly dissipating, and we'll have to see what happens in nine months post-Olympics as athletes and attendees return to their home countries and begin procreating.

Finally, Donald Trump has changed the words he's using to describe his stance on immigration. Does it mean he's changed his position? Depends on who you listen to.

Donald Trump continues to be in the news and his pitbull surrogate, Rudy Giuliani, is right there with his fangs bared.

From April 2015: The boys are on their school vacation this week, so we've been planning activities for them.

We went to a children's entertainment event at the Jericho Public Library that turned into a slight incident. The key word in that sentence is "public."

Believe me, I hate talking about Donald Trump two weeks in a row.

But the public furor between him and Khazir Khan (father of a deceased war hero) is more looney tunes.

The GOP convention was two weeks ago.

The Democratic convention was this past week.
How anyone can back one of the two candidates is insane to me.

On a few separate occasions, I have gotten my name in the newspaper.

Early in my life, it was a few fluke things – a turtle crossing the road, an appearance on a New York kids show, and for doing an art project for pediatric hospital patients.

It all came from thinking after seeing a story about a circus ringmaster...

There was a lot of election stuff that caught my eye this week.

In a stunning one-two punch that slapped down the GOP, Hillary Clinton was cleared of illegal wrongdoing in using a personal email server. Concurrently, the Benghazi commission (the fourth) not bringing a smoking gun has driven Republicans crazy.

These "victories" caused a convulsive revulsion against Donald Trump to suddenly be thrust aside. Trump's campaign declared that tens of millions of dollars were coming in from anti-Clinton donors. Not Trump supporters – people who are against Clinton.

We now live in an era where there is this false equivalency – your candidate's flaws and faults are just as bad as yours. It's a fallacy. And it's dangerous. And it's easy to argue with one quick search on Google.

For people who hate New York, 2016 will be a tough nut to swallow in terms of the presidential election. Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? Yikes.

There are pundits saying it will be a tight race and there are predicators saying that Clinton already has the election won, 131 days to go.

Who can tell?

A guy parked a car full of speakers across the street from CitiField – near LaGuardia Airport – and police were called because HIS SOUND SYSTEM was too loud.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio continues to battle corruption charges inside his administration.

New York State finally passed legislation to allow Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).

A truly mixed bag of news this week.
