I had such a long week, but I survived it and it’s all because of passion and intensity for making sure Hillary Clinton gets back to the White House in January 2017.  Effectively, the nomination is hers because Bernie Sanders doesn’t have any way – especially mathematical – for acquiring the number of delegates required.  Yet, he continues to believe that it’s possible but …

As expected, he did ‘win’ Indiana; however, not in the fashion in which he has been accustomed to in caucuses.  As we analyzed polled data coming in and looked at specific regions, we knew this was going to be close.  By all statistical conclusions, Hillary won Indiana because she took his edge.

And then, Guam.  Hillary won Guam by an incredible margin … 59.8% – 39.2% … and I enjoyed it because of Sanders advocate Tim Robbins equating Guam to South Carolina:

I had basically moved on from Sanders until all of the hate-filled BSers were in Los Angeles spewing hateful, curse laden words at Hillary supporters headed to her rally in East LA.  What set me off was the fact that BSers yelled, screamed at children and even ripped pro-Hillary signs from their hands (well documented) … that was a line that should have NEVER been crossed.  Any tolerance I had for BS and his supporters fizzled weeks ago; however, my patience for any of them has flamed out as well.  There was one incredible moment at those protests that just sent Hillary’s message of LOVE AND KINDNESS through the ‘roof’ …

And then of course the now dead #DropOutHillary attempt by the remaining BSers …

And of course, Donald Trump just couldn’t help himself when he called Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) ‘goofy’ after she was calling out for his racist, hate-filled speeches after winning Tuesday in Indiana.  But what he didn’t expect, as usual, was to be schooled by the Senator via Twitter:

Trump truly has no idea what’s ahead for him.  His anti-Hillary comments and his lack of knowledge of how things actually work politically, economically, policy-wise and diplomatically will be his downfall and Hillary will school him in every debate.  And when he attacks Hillary, he’s just kicking the hornets nest of Democrats who’ve already dealt with Bernie Sanders and his cronies.

And this cartoon pretty much sums up how a good number of Republicans feel about Trump being the presumptive nominee:

Lincoln out.

I, along with Team Hillary, are NEVER going to allow Donald Trump anywhere near the Oval Office … and anyone around me being apathetic toward the political process and voting better not have ONE WORD to say about my intensity!

Jews were forced to wear to wear these stars in Germany to identify them publicly.

The 2016 Days of Remembrance started earlier this week – a time to remember what happens when a government enacts intolerance into law.  It’s hard to believe that its been 71 years since the liberation of the Nazi death camps and the discovery of the world that over 12.5M human lives were lost at the hands of these murderous thugs – with 6M being Jews.  As individuals we must always remember the stories of survivors and then we must make sure that The Holocaust is never forgotten:

As I said at the start, it was a really bloody long week, but the weekend has really made things better albeit not being able to set my mum as originally planned; however, that’ll happen sooner than later! 🙂 I’m hooked on several series on Netflix … because my favourites aren’t on right now!  The one that is ‘killing’ me waiting for is THE WALKING DEAD … that series final still plays over and over in my head!

And we’ve only two episodes left of THE ORIGINALS … this season has been intense! Usually I’ve nothing nice to say about Nicklaus, but right now – I’m liking him!  I hate that Davina had to die and now Marcel … the writers have done a good job of keeping most of us on our toes and right now, I don’t know what to expect!

I’ve been watching EuroVision 2016 and there are so many great acts this year; however, I am partial to Joe and Jake from the United Kingdom … I love, love, love, love, love, love their song:

Even if they don’t win it outright, they’ve already won over the UK! 🙂 I cannot wait for them to release a few more songs … 

And a few of you who were so happy to see me back asked for quotes, current music I’m into and pictures of my recent travels / excursions  … and so, I give you some of my favourites:

Currently, I’m really into Frou Frou – you’ll recognise Imogene Heap’s beautiful voice … and their catchy little tune, MUST BE DREAMING:

I recommend their entire album … it’s a MUST listen and if you’re like me, you’ll end up buying it outright!  It’s melodic … it always picks me up and makes me dance across the floor! 🙂

Some moments this week that make me smile:

And now, quotes galore …

And that’s it – for now … I’ve decided that a big blog on Sundays is what I can do for now … plus, I’m really relaxed 🙂

Now, for one last little song – this is my shake my ass song at the moment … 

And on that note … everyone have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious week! xo

545 vs. 300,000,000 People


This, of course, isn’t my work, but it’s the work of one of America’s best columnists … and it rings with such incredible truth.

And no matter who you identify with politically, this really … well, read it … and know that he wanted it published over and over and over – so, in honour of his request, I’m publishing it here!

-By Charlie Reese

Orlando Sentinel

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.

You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. ( The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.)

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?( John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. ) If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to. [The House has passed a budget but the Senate has not approved a budget in over three years. The President’s proposed budgets have gotten almost unanimous rejections in the Senate in that time. ]

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.

If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ..

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible. They, and they alone, have the power.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees… We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

What you do with this article now that you have read it… is up to you.
This might be funny if it weren’t so true.
Be sure to read all the way to the end:

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table,
At which he’s fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for
peanuts anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid…

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
‘Taxes drove me
to my doom…’

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the heck happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’
I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!

GO AHEAD… BE AN AMERICAN!!!

This was his final column after 49 years of being a journalist. The fact of the matter is that this isn’t even the least bit misrepresented – if you do the leg work, you can find that everything he presents is fact and in fact, is being carried out.

Wow – it’s a lot to think about, but it makes you think …

Here’s to everyone having a great week … I’m going to go watch Moulin Rouge and then crawl in my big, comfy King-sized bed!
