An Overwhelming Sense of Dread
Author: BobR    Date: 01/18/2017 14:27:29

The day after tomorrow at noon, the nightmare we all assured ourselves could never possibly happen will come true. The Gropenfuhrer, the short-fingered vulgarian, the trash-hole, the Cheetolini will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.

Good Morning.

Yesterday was a remarkable anniversary.

On January 16, 1991, coalition forces went over the berm and invaded Kuwait in the first Gulf War.

We've been there ever since.

Think about it - it's been 26 years. That's not an insignificant amount of time. Just for me - in 1991 I was 25 years old. I hadn't even met my future wife yet. Never mind imagining the things I'm doing now. Of course, there are some constants - I was still a Scouter, but with my youth troop at 61 Saugus - I was still living in nearby Revere in those days.

So it seems appropriate to see what those 26 years of "We are always at war with Eurasia" hath wrought.

So apparently some ladies are planning to whine and complain about our new POTUS; some have taken to calling him BLOTUS. So pathetic!

The Safe Place

Good Morning.

T-minus six days, and counting.

I was tempted to post another "Bunnies, Puppies, and Flowers" blog today, but I think we'll be seeing enough of that in the coming months and years.

I just want to put this out there - here is my safe place:

The Peons and the Peed On

The "common wisdom" for why tRump won the election is because "coastal liberal elites" looked down upon and failed to understand the needs of the white middle-class worker in Flyover Country. Those country boys (and girls) just couldn't connect with a woman who used words above their education level and sent emails. They somehow identified with "regular guy" Donald tRump.
