Victoria, no, not the Queen.



In 1872, 45 year old Victoria Woodhull became the first woman to run for president.  27 year old Brie Larson is about to make a movie about the campaign.  Talk about age discrimination.

Another Prediction

So, the way I figure it, If Donnie actually gets his border wall built, it's only a matter of time before someone in Mexico plants a bomb and blows a hole in the thing.  And then it'll happen again, and again.  I also predict that the Mexican government won't put a high priority on catching the bombers.

Remember folks, you read it here first.

The Real Problem



The real problem isn't fake news.  The real problem is absent news. Steve Bannon, the second most powerful man in the United States, and arguably, one of the four or five most powerful people on the planet, is an overt racist who yearns for an apocalyptic war of civilizations.  As of yet, I haven't seen a single report on any of the major networks exposing the insanity of having such a man with so much influence on the government of the United States.  I'm old enough to have clear memories of Howard K. Smith, Huntley and Brinkley, and Walter Cronkite.  Those guys, true journalists, would have been all over Bannon.

And least we forget, Edward R. Murrow's take down of Joseph McCarthy.  It can be done.

The Nobel Prize

The Nobel Peace Prize will be awarded in a few days, and I'm just saying....Alicia Garza, Opel Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors, the three co-founders of Black Lives Matter.

The Lap of Luxury



I kind of feel sorry for Melania Trump.  I suspect she sold her youth for a luxurious life style for herself and her family.  I doubt she ever suspected that her oaf of a husband would run for the presidency and hold her up to a  certain level of public humiliation.

One of the sad things about the whole plagiarism things is that it has drawn attention away from the ravings of Dumbo's supporters at the Repug convention.  In general, I hate Nazi analogies, but let's be honest,  Rudy was a few minutes away from calling for concentration camps for American Muslims.  General Michael Flynn was also pretty sad.  Apart from being a horrible public speaker, until Donnie came around, the retired General was a life long, pro choice Democrat, yet he was willing to throw it all away for a very slight chance to be on the losing ticket.  And would someone please tell Antonio Sabato Jr., that President Obama is not a secret Muslim.  Now I have my doubts that the Prez is all that religious, but come on, the next thing we'll see is some sort of birther nut opening his big mouth, and wouldn't that be pathetic.

On Trial

I'm opposed to death penalty.  Opposition to the death penalty does not allow for exceptions, and that includes Dylann Roof.
