Record Numbers of Americans Want to Leave the U.S. – Gallup Polling

Tires to the midterms I was telling everyone I was moving to Montreal. I speak French fluently and I’ve lived in warm climates all my life so cold is not such a big deal to me actually would be interesting. That being said the United States of America is my country and I love it dearly. I don’t want to leave. So when the blue Wave happen that cemented my staying in the country. But if I were thirty something I would highly consider moving to Canada because they actually have a middle-class that’s growing. Canada has the lowest handgun rate in this hemisphere. 65 million people live in Canada and I believe last year there were about 135 murders, think about how many murders happened in your town in just one here.

I was telling one of my good friends today that if this president has done anything for this country that is good he has made it important to all of us that we become civically active and vote because if not we will be in another nightmare scenario like we are right now.

We are in an upside down world where Americans wants to leave the country that everyone wants to live in and you can thank the Tangerine nightmare in the white house for that.

There are bad people or characters in every country. And sometimes these bad characters flaunt their hatred. Sam Woolf wanted walking in darkness with tiki torches and looking idiotic.

Michelle Obama reveals she snuck out of White House to celebrate gay marriage ruling – NBC News

I cannot express in words how much I miss the Obamas in the White House.

As a gay American when we got the right to get married it was one of the happiest days I’ve ever had. It’s bittersweet for me, I’ll be 65 in April and my chances of getting married are very low. People ask me why I never had children, in the years that I would have wanted to adopt a child it was illegal for me to do so. It’s amazing how a government can change your life. I don’t regret anything but I’ve got to be honest to say that it would have been nice to have more of a family around me. I live alone in Los Angeles and my closest relative his in France.

bravo to Michelle Obama for being so open in her book. I ordered you to buy it.

The Delusional Futility of Analyzing Ashley Kavanaugh’s Awkward Body Language During Her Husband’s Swearing-In – Slate

I must be one of those violent Democrats because I did not watch anything to do with Kavanaugh’s Vote or swearing-in. Hand the hypocrisy of having a second swearing-in just baffles me. But then everything that this White House does baffles me.

I rarely ask that you go to the link that I post regarding the stories. I do urge you to go and watch the video for yourself. It’s rather disturbing.

Facebook says hackers saw personal info of 14 million people – NBC News

My divorce from Facebook is coming up on a year. I deactivated, deleted or however you want to say my Facebook account on November 11th 2017. I have not regretted it one minute. What I have seen his how ubiquitous Facebook has become. I cannot interact with the Stonewall Democratic party here in Los Angeles without Facebookas well as someone who does have Facebook. That being said the problems with Facebook are so ingrained that I truly believe it’s going to take a massive Exodus for them to start listening to us.

Oh and I did lose 55 pounds after getting rid of it and have not gained another pound. Kudos to me.

If you do a search on my blog for deleting or deactivating Facebook you will find step by step instructions. Our privacy is well worth a little inconvenience.

Obama slams ‘crazy stuff’ coming out of Trump White House, hits politicizing of Justice Department – NBC News

I’m in constant pain so I have issues with sleeping. I slept a little bit later this morning than normal. I turned on the TV expecting the normal chaos created by the Trump Administration and instead I thought I was having a dream. There was President Barack Obama making one of his amazing speeches. What a way to wake up! He mentioned the t-word by name and called out all of the terrible policies of this Administration. He told us that our vote means something, he gave us the Hope for Change.

Bob Woodward’s new book reveals a ‘nervous breakdown’ of Trump’s presidency – Washington Post

I believe the country is going through a nervous breakdown with this presidency. I wake up every morning to see what has happened to our country. Whether or not we are going to war or some important social program has been gutted. This man is frenetic and has no concept of how to run a government or a country and should not be in that office.

And then there’s the corruption. Not the corruption that that one conjures up for example bribery. I’m talking about the corruption of dumping 40000 documents on the lap of the opposition party the night before the hearing for a supreme court nominee. The corruption that the legislative branch has given up all power to the Executive Branch. The corruption of trying to make the judicial branch a reflection of the Republican mindset.

People say that this coming election is the election of our lifetime and they are correct.

Stormy Daniels, Trump and the power of telling the truth – NBC News

Stephanie Clifford also known as Stormy Daniels along with her attorney, Michael Avenatti, May well be the Catalyst that causes the Trump ship to sink. I wasn’t of this opinion right away. I thought Playboy model Karen McDougal was more believable in her interview with Anderson Cooper than was Stormy Daniels. But both women need to be given credit because dare truth was absolutely the truth. At the end of the day everything they both have said about their dealings with Trump have been corroborated by multiple individuals.

with Trump we’re dealing with an individual who thinks he and he alone is above the law. This was something that was clear from the time he tried to get out of going to Vietnam for the lame reason that he had bone spurs. And through his history as a failed developer he cheated his way through every business deal. He’s a cheat and got into the White House by cheating and now the American people know that. What to me was more important than anything that happened this week was the interview with the juror in the Paul manafort case that wanted Paul manafort to be innocent but said that he wasn’t and the evidence was overwhelming. She confessed to wear a make America great again hat to the courthouse. But she left her hat in the car and brought her citizenship into the courtroom. I believe this is giving a lot of people out there validation and the ability to walk away from Trump and his lies.

Trump speechwriter fired amid scrutiny of appearance with white nationalists – Washington Post

Bill Maher’s does this bit where he says that he’s not sure that it’s a fact but he knows that it’s true and I will emulate him and saying I’m not sure it’s a fact that I know it’s true that if you fired all the white nationalist in the White House we wouldn’t have a President anymore.

With all the rhetoric of hate being spewed from this White House what did this man do to get fired? And why do we still have this president?
