    U.S. Politics: Impoverished In Squalor

    Nope, I was only reporting what CNN was saying. CNN had already prepared me to expect no smoking gun.

    Mueller is not recommending any more indictments. Nothing against Trump Jr, or Trump, or Kushner or anyone else. According to CNN.

    Excellent! I keep thinking of SHS as Bellatrix, mainly for her dark hair and her crazy look, but Kellyanne seems closer to Trump, so she should be Bellatrix, especially when she gets into a crazy defensive rant/attack. But Nagini is genius! Pence as Pettigrew!

    And I see he also announced today that high student debt was unfair and he would work on that problem right away. The guy who cancelled loan forgiveness programs and other things helpful for students, right?

    Just saw Trump has tweeted that the US will change US policy and go against a UN resolution and support Israel’s rights to the Golan Heights.

    This morning’s laugh. The governor of Kentucky heard about a neighbour’s kids having chicken pox and brought over his nine (!!!!) kids and exposed them all. He doesn’t believe in vaccines. It’s un-American to make people have vaccines.

    U.S. Politics: Impoverished In Squalor

    Meh, maybe we're talking too much about the Conways, but this has been lurking at the back of my mind all day. George Conway wrote the the claim against Bill Clinton for, I think, Paula Jones. Clinton's infidelity and HRC's defense of her husband have been used against both both Clintons pretty well every day of every week of every year ever since. Hilary in particular was attacked by Republicans as an 'enabler' of sexual harassment, and castigated for not leaving Bill for his infidelity. My God I remember the endless stories along the lines of "why doesn't she leave him". Republicans wanted to absolutely destroy them both. Now that I know Conway was involved in the lawsuit, I wonder if he also guided the stories that followed thereafter. And while I know Trump can be a vicious and ugly attack dog, I wonder who came up with the idea of bringing Paula Jones and the other women who accused Bill Clinton out to sit in the HRC/Trump debate. Did Trump come up with that idea, or Kellyanne? Did George suggest it, or was it just her closeness to the lawsuit that suggested that idea? The Republicans have been relentless in their attacks on the Clinton marriage. If the Conways break up over her working for Trump I'd say karma struck back with a vengeance. I see that just a while ago Kellyanne came out in defense of Trump's attacks on her husband.

    UK Politics: A Third Meaningful Thread

    I can pack some tins of tuna in my suitcase for when I go to Worldcon and Titancon in August, if anyone is interested.

    Lol, my cynical response is the Americans will come in and...Er....ravage you, to use a quaint British term.

    Sally Quinn of the WaPo (and speaking of famous spouses, Ben Bradley’s widow) was on CNN the other night. She was one of 3 women at some event when Kellyanne Conway walked up to them and started asking why the press was talking about her husband’s tweets. Duh....because it’s a story? She did not want to talk about stuff Conway told them, but apparently another reporter had no qualms and details showed up in a WaPo story. Her assessment was something has to go, either Conway has to quit working for Trump or get divorced. It’s that stark, according to Quinn and several others that night. And it is being speculated that Conway will choose Trump over her husband, which why the attacks on her husband have ramped up. And that kind of story is notable enough to talk about. It’s not private anymore. I had a lot of sympathy for her husband, described always as an old style, moderate Republican. Then I found out from that interview that he was a driving force behind Clinton’s impeachment and drafted the lawsuit one of the women Clinton had an affair with brought, the lady who won the $800,000 or whatever it was, the case that decided a sitting president could be sued. Now I think of how ironic the situation is, Republicans devouring each other in the name of the Trump cult. Thoughts and prayers, baby.

    Trust me, I’d need at least 5 strokes on each hole. While I love to trudge around with my friends (uh, in a golf cart) my skills are pretty abysmal. I imagined that, in my old age, I’d take lessons but, bah, I don’t care enough. And I have never set foot in a country club. Golf clubs only for social games thrown by employers or charity events!

    I came here because 'Breaking News' just popped up on my Facebook page - "Theresa May admits country is 'in crisis' with ten days to avert no-deal Brexit", the Independent. Reality sucks.

    ROUND FOUR PART A - RICKON STARK Poor little, lonely Rickon, split off for his own safety to, wtf, Skagos, to live alongside cannibals and unicorns. And. Just. Gone. It seems appropriate to add him after Davos. Will Davos reach Skagos only to find it was a wasted trip? Or does he bring Rickon back to die...how...the way his namesake did? In the tv series Once again I'll give 3 sets of letters plus the 'in the' letters. avsswt gmbsetb ujknrmdc In the bsbacu As stated above, the deadline is Sunday, March 24 at 11:00 pm EST. Good luck everyone!
