Today we actually move the old lady in to her new home so time is short and therefor this 'Rumble' will be equally so.
This sounds about right: Zero Hedge has piece explaining why the Dems lost the election:
If anything, the antics of the DNC during these primaries showed that their callous disregard for the broader economic interests the people, and the hypocrisy which their self interests enabled, knew no bounds.
Think of the arrogance of their mindset— vote for our candidate because she is not good, but less bad than the other fellow, and once again you really have no other choice.
And they wonder why they were so soundly rejected.
You could say much the same concerning Cameron, Juncker, Merkel et al 'over here' which is why I believe the Italians will stick it to them today. Viva Italia!
But 'a very naughty boy' offers a different reason: I have mentioned before that 'very naughty boy' who runs I Hate The Media. He has a knack of putting his finger on very delicate topics usually avoided by the MSM. Thus, he quotes a piece in Salon magazine which blames Republicans for 'suppressing' the black vote in the areas they control. Piffle, says IHTM, the plain truth is that very many blacks did not vote for 'HillBilly' in the numbers they did for Obama for one simple reason - she's white!
Are all 'Greenies' bonkers? I ask because the 'Greenie' lady who ran for the presidency and lost BIG TIME has insisted on recounts of the votes in various States. The first result from a county in Wisconsin resulted in 'HillBilly' gaining one vote from Trump!
At her current pace, Clinton will overtake Trump in Wisconsin in approximately 74 and a half years.
I suppose the answer to my original question is 'yes'!
One by one the bells fall silent: Rather a sad piece in The Telegraph today by Jane Shilling who informs us that the Whitechapel Bell Foundry is ceasing business. Apparently, the business has existed since Elizabeth I and it has occupied its current premises in East London since 1738.
It is melancholy news, and not just for campanology nerds. Across the centuries, the foundry’s bells have rung out around the world. They include Big Ben, at 13 and a half tons, the largest bell ever cast by the firm, as well as the 1752 Philadelphia Liberty Bell, the bells of the Armenian church in Chennai, south India, the Bell of Hope that commemorates victims of the 9/11 attacks – and the recast ring of eight bells at the village church in Tunstall, where I grew up.
As the churches fall empty, so the bells fall silent and a quintessential part of England dies.
No more rumbles today!
