    2. From Steve Thrasher's column I linked from the previous thread:

      We’ve also been freed of Barack Obama. Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter and a lot of great left thinking developed under his tenure. But it was hard for a broad left to go full tilt at him. He was too nice, he looked too much like some of us, and while he was far from its biggest ally, he didn’t obliterate the movement for black lives. It survived its infancy under him and now, everything the left learned under Obama can be targeted without reservation at ugly Trump.

  3. That means the Secret Service will be there, too. That could be interesting. . .

  5. Herbal nose spray news… I am pleased to avoid the steroid nasal spray that my GP prescribed.

    After using Sinusoothe [Click] for a week (including learning how to snort medicine for the first time) I have had a huge improvement in my rhinosinusitis [AKA post-nasal drip]. It is described as "freaking awesome" here; [Click] I figured that ought to be good enough for me, and so it has proven. After about a year and a half of coughing, my throat will take time to heal, but already things are pretty darn good. Best price found here [Click] (three for the price of two, free shipping, no tax, 60-day money-back guarantee). Took three weeks to the US west coast in early January; it was well worth the wait. Amazon reviews almost all good except for one person who said it burnt; it didn't for me, and others say that stops quickly. Definitely an Alan-recommended product.

  6. I was in China in 1981, another Year of the Rooster. We were having a New Year's party in the faculty room when the department head announced that it was the Year of Cock! The (American) teacher I was talking to had just gotten married said, "Oh, I hope so!"

  7. I just sent the following e-mail to the White House, my alleged Representative and both Senators.--Alan

    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

    ― H.L. Mencken

    Even The Bad Boy of Baltimore did not foresee a frank psychotic as President of the United States, but it sure looks like we got a twofer. Trump makes even James Buchanan look better. It is time to deploy Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

    BTW, the new White House web site is absolutely cringeworthy. It is what one would expect from a tinpot dictator.
