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.
