Well, I broke my computer this morning. I reached over to get a cup of tea and laptop got upended. It is being repaired but ther is a wait of between 3-5 weeks. Blogging is very hard with the kindle so will have to see how it goes.
So, I went to the off-licence/liquor store to buy a bottle of wine. I was delighted to see my favourite person there. We discuss politics and he knows I am in trauma about trump. He asked me how I was doing. I told him – not great.
So we started this conversation about the EC. Well, I did. Another gentleman came in and was buying his survival supplies. I apologised for holding him up (not literally)…
He said to me, this is fascinating. I am really enjoying the conversation. So I schooled them on the EC vote. It was fun.
When I was young, I would have been afraid to put forth my opinion. Well, to be fair…I probably didn’t have an opinion about anything.
As you age, you don’t give a fuck.
So, Sarah Palin is being considered for Secretary of Veterans Affairs.
That pretty much sums it up.
Crippled son graduated from Trinity College yesterday. A great day was had by all.
Dog hair tip.
Get an eggplant (we call them aubergines here) and wrap it with sticky tape. Sticky side out. Then roll it across the offending article. Magic!
Seems to me as if little donnie and his newly-found GOP arseholes don’t like this recount bidness.
WI and MI are refusing to co-operate.
RED FLAG ALERT.
Oh, the Breitbart peeps are not at all pleased with the Goldman Sachs guys that the donald is surrounding himself with. It’s beginning to dawn on them that have been duped.
Courtesy of Politico:
After a decade in the wilderness, Wall Street’s most powerful firm, Goldman Sachs, is dominating the early days of the incoming Trump administration. The newly picked Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, spent 17 years at Goldman. Trump’s top incoming White House adviser, Steve Bannon, spent his early career at the bank. So did Anthony Scaramucci, one of Trump’s top transition advisers.
Goldman’s president, Gary Cohn, spent an hour schmoozing with President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday and could be up for an administration job, possibly as director of the Office of Management and Budget, people close to Cohn and the transition said. Cohn, a long-time commodities trader, is friendly with Trump’s powerful son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
Back to Breitbart. I went there so you don’t have to.
I think little donnie may be in trouble…
Courtesy of The New York Times:
Breitbart.com’s scorn for Muslims, immigrants and black activists drew a fervent following on the alt-right, an extremist fringe of message boards and online magazines popular with white supremacists, and after Mr. Bannon took control of the website in 2012, he built a raucous coalition of the discontented.
More quietly, Mr. Bannon systematically courted a series of politicians, especially those who share his dark, populist worldview: at home, a corrupt ruling class preying on working Americans; globally, “the Judeo-Christian West” in a “war against Islamic fascism.” They were views that placed him closer to the European right than to the Republican mainstream.
He made flattering films about Michele Bachmann, the former congresswoman from Minnesota, and Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate; repeatedly pressed the television host Lou Dobbs to run for office; and flirted with a range of Republican presidential hopefuls, including Rick Santorum, Ben Carson and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. Finally, in Mr. Trump, Mr. Bannon found his man.
Mr. Bannon told a colleague in multiple conversations during the presidential campaign that he knew Mr. Trump was an “imperfect vessel” for the revolution he had in mind. But the upstart candidate and the media entrepreneur bonded anyway.
And that’s all I’ve got. Read the full article.
So last night this erupted from the donald.
Methinks the donald needs to shut up about voter fraud. People just might demand a recount of the whole election. And there were a lot of voters that were disenfranchised.
He is back at it again today.
This man is making a mockery of the presidency. He is not fit to be in that position. I just hope the EC will do the right thing although I am not holding my breath.
Daughter went out on Thursday night with the Trinity crowd in Dublin. I’m fairly certain that adult beverages were involved. Anyway, she lost/or had her phone stolen. She rang the place where it had disappeared and they don’t have it. She was afraid to tell her father as it is rather a costly item. I didn’t feel like telling him either. Last night she came into the kitchen while hubby and I were having a glass of wine. I said to her, you may as well tell your father the bad news. I swear to god that hubby thought she was pregnant or something. There was this horrified look on his face.
They are currently buying a new phone.
And that is how you do it. It took me three days…
