Frank Liberto, the inventor of baseball stadium nachos (consisting of tortilla chips, jalapenos, and nacho cheese) has died aged 84 in San Antonio, according to My San Antonio. While Liberto can't be credited with creating nachos altogether (that dish dates back to the 1940s), the ballpark concession version of the dish was his signature. He started rolling the dish out in 1976 -- the recipe's linchpin was the slightly liquid cheese sauce, which, when coupled with special dispensing equipment, allowed it to be dispensed quickly for a ballpark setting. ... The Ricos' history of baseball nachos gives credit to game announcer Howard Cosell, for giving multiple shout-outs to Liberto's creation in his commentary. read more

"I was outraged when I read, on Twitter of all places, that the president wanted to ban transgender people from serving in the military. You know, and he knows, transgender people have fought and died for this country from our very beginning. They are serving in uniform with distinction right now, and the suggestion that transgender Americans are unfit to serve is insulting and wrong." -- Hillary Clinton, speech to Human Rights Campaign annual gala

During his eight years in office, Obama avoided legal prosecution, and wasn't investigated by any special counsels, breaking a 36-year stretch that dated back to Watergate.

✔ Barack Obama is the only president since Nixon who didn't have to deal with an independent investigation.
✔ Former presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, and Gerald Ford all faced investigations into their activities or the activities of their associates.
✔ The observation comes as President Donald Trump is under investigation, along with his closest associates, as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

"I wished people would stop making excuses for and trying to deny who Hillary REALLY is." - #3 | Posted by LauraMohr at 2017-11-18 01:44 PM

In November, voters will have the opportunity to choose between a vetted and vocally pro-LGBT candidate and an ethically insolvent, chaotic carnival barker.

In our endorsement of President Obama's reelection four years ago, we noted his administration's embrace of LGBT rights: "Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's moving and historic speech to an international audience of the United Nations' human rights group in Geneva [in December 2011], observing the anniversary of the passage of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, made the Obama administration's perspective very clear, that LGBT rights are human rights."

And...
Now Clinton has made LGBT inclusion a pillar of her campaign, from the first video announcing her candidacy. She has produced the most complete and impressive LGBT platform of any presidential candidate ever. In it, she has vowed to champion the Equality Act, the legislation that would enact federal nondiscrimination protections with regard to sexual orientation and gender identity. Clinton's policy platform called for an end to the ban on transgender military service -- now officially gone -- an end to quack "conversion therapy" for minors, an end to discrimination against LGBT families in adoptions, improved school conditions for LGBT students, expanded shelters for homeless LGBT youth, affordable treatment for people with HIV, expanded access to PrEP, expanded data collection and other measures to stem the disproportionate violence against trans people, and improved access to correct identification for trans people, along with many other positions that directly affect the rights, health, and welfare of our communities. She has also pledged to continue the United States' work of improving the condition of LGBT people internationally, a natural extension of that pledge made in Geneva.

Clinton has raised these issues with consistency during the primary season, and they have become a hallmark of her campaign heading into the general election.

That's who Hillary really is.

And she sounds exactly like the kind of person a real transgender individual would like and admire.

The kind of person a real transgender individual would support for president.
