Are the Democrats doomed? I ask because there are two interesting articles of foreboding on this subject today. The first, and perhaps most surprising, is from the impeccably liberal Maureen Dowd writing in the NYT. She chronicles the disaster that has followed the Dems attempts last year to seize on Trump's self-confessed bad attitude to women whilst supporting 'HillBilly' who had joined enthusiastically in attacking the female victims of her own husband's voracious sexual appetite.
The other article is an anonymous one in The American Spectator which complies with the old diktat to 'always follow the money'. According to this writer, the Dems are heading, if not for bankruptcy then for severe impoverishment. The chances are that the new Supreme Court will finally back a law that will stop public service unions from extracting money from their members who are not Dem supporters. In anticipation, they have already slashed their contributions to the Dems. The 'yuuuuuuge' amounts of money usually forthcoming from Hollywood have disappeared as the entire industry gurgles down the toilet. Likewise, the Obama corruption in which various government funds were aimed at Democrat-supporting entities will cease under Trump and the cream on that cake is that Obama left the DNC an overdraft on its funds! Read the article to see all the other revenue sources which have either disappeared or shrunk. Trump may, or may not, be dumb but he's certainly lucky!
Quantum physics is easy compared to the Brexit imbroglio: Does anyone really and truly understand the ins and outs of the Brexit negotiation? As you may have noticed, given the lack of posts here on the subject, I haven't a clue. Reading the, er, 'informed' commentariat simply leaves one even more confused. Given the internal conflicts in the Tory party it was never going to be easy but my trust in an eventually satisfactory outcome remains with that "old common arbitrator, Time".
No wonder 'the cousins' are confused: So far this year CNN, one of the principle news networks 'over there', has had to retract seven false news stories. There's still three weeks to go until the new year so we must wait and see if they can reach double figures. They are rapidly approaching the (in)accuracy record of the British Met Office who haven't changed the seaweed that hangs outside their windows for decades! Does anyone watch CNN anymore?
Say it ain't so: There is a 'SHLOCK-HORROR' story in today's Times reporting that a 'business man' connected to the Labour party has been recorded demanding a bribe of £2m from a developer trying get planning permission to build a new office skyscraper. I can't provide the details because I refuse to pay to read The Times and thus keep the sundry wives of my ex-best friend, 'Rupe', in the style to which they have become accustomed! But surely, 'Brother' Jeremy would not allow himself to be soiled by connection to such capitalist swine!
When it comes to Martin Schulz we must not be 'lookist':
No more rumbles today
