Polls Show Donald Trump’s High Probability Running for U.S. President in 2012

 The poll might just show Donald John Trump, Sr., 64, as a second placer in the latest GOP or Republican poll on who might be this political party’s potential bet against the Democratic Party’s in the 2012 U.S. Presidential Elections.
 Trailing behing Mitt Romney who got a 21 percent support and tying with Mike Huckabee wherein they both got 17 percent Trump bested Newt Gingrich who got 11 percent, Sarah Palin 10 percent and Tim Pawlenty 6 percent.
GOP, which is the Republican Party’s nickname that stands for Grand Old Party, is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the U.S. along with the Democratic Party. GOP has the second most registered voters and as of 2004 totals to 55 million which is roughly one-third of the U.S. electorate. However the Democratic party boasts of 72 million voters as of 2004 and is the party where President Barack Obama belongs.
One of the two bright hopes for Trump being GOP’s bet is the result of a poll released earlier this week that found him to be the one who might topple Romney’s lead in New Hampshire.
The New Hampshire primary is the first primary in the quadrennial U.S. presidential election cycle which is the process of choosing the Democratic and Republican nominees for the presidential elections.
Public Policy Polling says that without Trump in the game Romney sits at 31 percent which is actually a 16-point lead over Huckabee. But once Trump joins in the race Romney would just be ahead by six points which could easily change in Trump’s favor.
Likewise Trump is leading the entire potential U.S. candidates favored by the Tea Party.
Though not a political party the Tea Party is a political movement that has caucuses in the House of Representatives and the Senate of the United States. A Gallup poll shows almost 80% of Tea Party members consider themselves to be Republicans.

The psychology of Trump’s popularity may be the reason for the sudden surge of the possibility of this business magnate, socialite, author and television personality running as the Republican’s best bet for United States’ 2012 Presidential Elections.

Carole Middleton: Future Grandmother of a Potential Heir to English Throne Badly Hit with 15/50 Syndrome

15/50 is a phenomenon recently coined because many mothers are now trying hard or unconsciously dressing like their young daughters.
 Nothing actually morally bad with that. It’s just that it becomes quite hilariously funny for anyone who would see a trim and/or fashionably young figure from the back only to be surprised, frightened or plainly head-scratchingly-disappointed to see upfront a 50+-year-old woman who, in spite of all the best cosmetics, toiletries and even surgery done to her face, still looks old.
Not that am even suggesting that Carole Middleton, Catherine Middleton’s (future wife of Prince William) mother, had anything done to her face.
 Instead Carole Middleton is a glaring example of how one who was monetarily deprived in her youth (or plainly never got attention and is still trying hard for attention now) is making up through the dresses and/or shoes she wears. In result she looks like she is dressing like her daughter. However which way Carole Middleton was a flight attendant before she became a millionaire when she and husband Michael Middleton set up Party Pieces – an online mailing company of children’s party accessories. She definitely has more money now enough to qualify them as millionaires.
Not that aquiring things now when one was deprived of them then is bad. One needs therapies in forms like these every now and then. But when a woman is dressing up like one of her daughters it either is a sign of being hardheaded in accepting her age (in spite of the wrinkly skin, cellulite, sagging arms and thighs and lack of figure and all) or just being plain uneducated in how one, six years past the half century mark, should dress.
Middle-aged women should not, on the other hand, look frumpy. They should look like human beings blessed with the wisdom of their years. They should look respectable enough that their experiences and stature as mothers (way past half the century mark) should look.
Royal followers are aware that snobbish noses turned up the very first time Carole Middleton caught the spotlight as one of Prince William’s guests in his Sandhurst graduation chewing gum. “So this gum-chewing-woman is the potential mother-in-law of the future king of England?” they thought. “Not only was being a former flight attendant quite unimaginable for the possibility of this woman being a mother-in-law to Prince William but to chew gum on his graduation? No class at all.”
In the pictures below spot where Carole Middleton got it wrong. Below are proofs detailing where she and many other women in her age range get it wrong. Note that Carole Middleton still dresses the conservative English way (though it’s the conservative yound adult English way) compared to other women hit with the 15/50 phenomenon.
 At 56 years of age and wearing short skirts, flat boots and navy jacket. Forget even her well-toned body. Old is old. No offense but if looks betray a mature woman’s age men and women still know that other parts of her anatony would still give her away.
 The picture of Kate Middleton’s parents after her engagement announcement. Carole Middleton turned up for the world press in tight skinny jeans and high heeled boots with a cropped zipper jacket that looked like it was from Topshop. The thing that glaringly shows how Carole Middleton refuses to dress her age is that Topshop is for the young market. Even Kate Moss, the somewhat old supermodel now, who was in charge for some years of the clothes from Topshop, was around 36 years old when she got that job. How young is 36 compared to 56? One is a mother to a six-year-old child and the other is a mother to a 29-year-old-daughter.
  Trying to look young makes a woman look old. Tangerine cocktail dress even more revealing than that of her daughter’s. Too young, too tight, too bright. Too trying hard. Too bad taste. Too needy to be educated on how to dress her age. Too many like these happening these days.
Here is a bright shining example of how women of Carole Middleton’s age and stature should dress. Princess Michael of Kent may be 10 years older that Mrs. Middleton but she definitely looks younger, more cultured, wiser and more in command of the respect women way past the century mark deserve.

Kurt Cobain Remembered Seventeen Years After His Death

 Kurt Cobain is known worldwide for his music. Though many probably may not reconcile his name with his face and sound they had been a common fixture everywhere as the presence of the faces on our coins are. Cobain is not something alien to a whole slew of people belonging to Generation X or Gen X (born after the post-World War II baby boom ended which are those born in the 1960s, ’70s and not later than 1982).
 Kurt Donald Cobain, February 20, 1967 – c. April 5, 1994, was remembered by his hometown Aberdeen in Washington on Tuesday, seventeen years after his suicide, with a guitar sculpture memorial located in a park near the Young Street bridge where Nirvana’s frontman spent some of his childhood days. Notably, during the guitar sculpture dedication on Tuesday, many of those who went to the unveiling were born after his death in ‘94.

Nirvana, Cobain’s grunge band, found breakthrough success with “Smells Like Teen Spirit” from their second album Nevermind. As much as they sold millions of albums the success of their impact is really measured when Cobain, a singer-songwriter and frontman of this band, was hailed as the spokesperson of Gen X.
 Before he died Cobain was struggling with heroin addictionbronchitis and laryngitis, depression, his fame and public image as well as the professional pressures between himself and his wife, musician, Courtney Love. It’s reported that his death was the result of a second suicide attempt.
On April 8, 1994 an electrician, who was supposed to install a security system in Cobain’s Seattle mansion, found him on the floor and thought he was sleeping until he saw the gun pointing to his chin. Apart from the blood that came out of his ears there was no sign of trauma. A suicide note, to his childhood imaginary friend named Boddah, was found paraphrasing, “I haven’t felt the excitement of listening to as well as creating music, along with really writing…for too many years now”. High doses of heroin and Valium was found in his body. He had been dead already for three days before his body was found.

His death and life had been explored in films and books.
Cobain’s wife Courtney Love hired a private investigator to look for Cobain after he left rehab, a few days of only being in the program, before his death. On April 5 he barricaded himself in the granny flat behind his mansion and killed himself.
Love was in a hospital in L.A. because of a drug overdose. She was taken there two days after Cobain’s death when his body haven’t been discovered yet. A day after, on April 8 when Cobain’s body had already been found, Love went out of the hospital after a friend informed her of the discovery.
 His daughter with Love, Frances Bean, was just 19 months old.

No Wedding Ring for Prince William

There’s still that forthcoming wedding though. England’s second-in-line-to-the-throne decided to forgo the wedding band, the simplest and surest sign that anyone is legally and morally taken. Palace officials confirmed this staggering news with the clarification that this is with William’s future wife, Catherine Middleton’s, blessings. Buckingham Palace clarified that Catherine would be the only one to get to wear the family heirloom Welsh gold band to be given by Queen Elizabeth.

The choice of not wearing a wedding band is one of the accepted modern acts couples exercise these days. This goes alongside a bride’s choice not to take on her husband’s surname coupled with the now most popular separate bank accounts. However Prince William marrying without a wedding band may be considered too drastic as a decision for an heir to an institution steeped with tradition.
Blessed with the wisdom of any couple their age, Catherine is 29 while William a few months younger at 28, Kate and William already know what they can get away with even if they are a young couple of a royal institution.
Reports of a finger food buffet, charitable donations instead of gifts and some emailed invitations are sure signatures of the young, modern couple who had been living in together since their university years albeit reported quiet disapproval from the late Queen Mother and the present Queen. This birth of a new, modern, no nonsense, wise young royal couple had been signaled right from the start when the very first news regarding their wedding is the bride’s limo ride, instead of the usual carriage ride, to Westminster Abbey.
 As much as the only ring that would be visible forever on William’s hand would be the signet ring that men of his position wear there’s no need for any wedding band to ward off any potential, however subtle temptation, as the whole world would be watching and reading about his wedding to the incomparably beautiful, statuesque, patient and understanding Kate Middleton on April 29.
