Several fires are burning within Yellowstone Park forests presently, in addition to millions of acres devastates by fire in the West. Last year, a total of 10.1 million acres burned, a figure double what happened only 30 years ago. The average season of forest fires has lengthened by 78 days in the same time period. The US Forest Service manages 193 million acres of forest and scientists predict that the number of forest being wiped out by fire will double by 2050. What the heck is going on? Do the environmentalists in their effort to protect forests actually cause it more harm than good? Or is it climate change, drought and people who build close to forests? What are there solutions available to stop the forest fires?

Trump campaign strategy: He is hitting Hillary and liberal policies hard with “What do you have to lose?” questions to black voters when he addresses a predominately white crowd? Plus attacking Hillary for poor judgment hiring Huma Abedin whose husband Anthony Weiner is –for a third time—exposed in another sexting scandal. Do these two strategies work? Or do they turn voters off?

Interview: Mike O’Neill, Owner/CEO. O’Neill Research, Opinion, Surveys.Public Opinion Research and Surveys. Topic: The Trump Phenomena, and the Hillary Honesty Factor.

The “Burkini” Ban: In French waters, the Burqa as a bathing suit doesn’t suit some high elected officials’ taste as “not French enough.” They prefer swimming in a more French way—using a bikini, or one-piece. There is legislation afoot to ban Burkini. And there is legislation to reinstate it. What is your take? Where is the freedom of dress? If the ban stays, is France acting like Iran with its heavy handedness? As the saying goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” Should that apply to the waters of the French Riviera?
