Covid now ravaging small Ukrainian towns
« Reply #1025 on: November 12, 2020, 09:12:10 PM »
Small town where wife grew up (and parents still live there) made it to August with zero cases of Covid.

Then it started.  Now they have several new cases every day and deaths are coming.

She knew 4 of those who have died just in the past week.

Her Mother reports that many people have just given up and take the attitude that whatever happens will happen and nothing we can do about it.

Well, I must be 'deluded'... along with all the health workers, carers and management who are trying to keep hospitals, old folks homes and other institutions  functioning whilst risking their health or lives for us ..

Election lasting more than 4 hours

Anyone surprised that two elderly men can prolong an election for such an extended period of time ??

Wife asked this morning: When are we having sex?

I said:  Let me check the weather forecast.

Why ?

Italian man asks why Trump voted out
« Reply #1033 on: November 17, 2020, 09:30:10 AM »
Wife has female cousin living in Italy and married to Italian man.
Italians, along with most all Europeans have political views that would be considered left wing in USA.
(Note: I say this because it has been stated here by those living in Europe).

Wife had long Skype talk with cousin yesterday because it was cousin's birthday.

Cousin said her Italian husband asked her to ask: 

"Why did Americans vote Trump out?  He did not lead USA into additional international wars, he forced Europe to increase spending on our own defense, he led USA into great economy before Covid, he had plans to halt illegal immigration."

Wife replied:  Because stupid voters here who vote based on personality rather than policies.

That's something for a Ukrainian to say, given the Trump administration's less than enthusiastic attitude toward Ukraine.

'Those' being ..examples, please..?

I wish Sandro was still around to remind you that northern Italy has quite right of centre 'patriot' support. Germany has it's AfD, Greece is locking up Golden Dawn supporters involved in murdering immigrants, France has its FN and the UK has Farage, et al

"Why did Americans vote Trump out?  He did not lead USA into additional international wars, he forced Europe to increase spending on our own defense, he led USA into great economy before Covid, he had plans to halt illegal immigration."

1/ He oversaw a continued presence in E.Syria - withdrawing against the will of Generals there and in 'Kurdistan'

2/ The economy was already great ...

3/ He plans to build a wall and get the Mexicans to pay for it ? ;)


One wonders if Wifey's cousin watches too much Fox

Not commententing on wifey's thoughts ;)

Great PBS story re McConnell's revenge after 33 years
« Reply #1036 on: November 26, 2020, 12:09:42 PM »
Be sure to watch this program.
Quite fascinating covering all the nominations from Bork to Barrett

After the Bork defeat in 1987, a young Mitch McConnell gave address in which he said the Democrats would forever rue that day.

It took Mitch 33 years to finalize his revenge.

I had never heard this particular phrasing, but once when Trump asked Mitch how he was holding up regarding Kavanaugh, Mitch said:  "I am stronger than mule piss."
Probably those of you from the south have heard this before.
