This is not a movie script … it is 100% fact. Actor Steven Seagal who has played numerous roles ranging from a CIA Agent to a hit man was named a special representative to improve relations between the United States and Russia. The strange thing about it is the fact that he was appointed by Russia! The Russian Foreign Ministry announced the appointment on Facebook of all places saying Seagal’s mission will include promoting relations between the two countries in the humanitarian field including cooperation in culture, arts, public and youth exchanges. The position does not carry a salary. I wonder who Seagal’s agent is ???

Trump Good … Trump Bad??? The USA is on pace to add about 2.6-million jobs this year under President Trump’s watch. The interesting fact is the bulk of the hiring has occurred in bastions of Democratic voters and not the Republican counties that put Trump in office. 58.5% of the jobs gained were in counties that backed Hillary Clinton in 2016 according to an Associated Press analysis of county-by-county job data. The AP also found out that 35.4% of counties that backed Trump have actually lost jobs in the past year. Who would have thought that possible?

The fast food chain Popeye’s claims to have New Orleans style chicken. Their ads show the streets of New Orleans, they talk about New Orleans spices and the spokesperson has a Creole accent. Well the chain just moved their corporate headquarters from Atlanta to Miami to save money! The corporation that spent $1.8-billion to purchase Popeye’s last year is called Restaurant Brands International (RBI) and they also own Tim Horton’s and Burger King.
