A Few Thoughts

Job Interview


CHECK THIS OUTIt's the new normal. I interviewed a couple of people to do some work for me, and this is generally how it went. (I found this other one on YouTube - more 'new normal')

Bannon's Demise

Sloppy Steve Bannon steps from the national stage, a darling of the radical left (who still hate him). I wonder if that's the legacy that he wanted to leave?

He's also been fired from Breitbart News, but never fear. He's worth millions to cushion his fall from grace and his ride into his dotage, unheralded.

Nobody will miss Steve and neither will they miss Gov. Chris Christy, despite his assertion that he could have been a contender if not for President Trump.

Dow Jones Industrials

I have no idea where the theoretical limit is for the Stock Market, which closed (again) for a record high. Clearly it can't go on forever, but it represents jobs, confidence, a repatriation of trillions from overseas thanks to the Tax Bill. A rising tide floats all boats.

Oprah or Bernie?

The Democrats are a Party without a plan. Oprah is a billionaire fat cat populist cast in the Obama orbit as somebody who would restore Barack's legacy, which has been completely destroyed by President Trump. She's the political opposite of the Sanders' Democrats. Oprah would have the distinction of being the first completely authentic black person to be president and she's a woman.  Would she want to stop running around being fabulous and work 18 hour days, and instead of being loved, be despised? I somehow doubt it.

  1. My daughter is a millennial, as is her husband. Thank God neither is "normal."

    1. I have a daughter who edges on "normal" for a millennial. (sigh)

    2. I have two millennials and they both have critical thinking skills. I guess they're not "normal" either.

  2. I watched that interview and laughed! Nice one.

    Please let Oprah run.

    Thanks.

    1. You laugh at the interview, but it's VERY close to the mark these days. Particularly in California (land of fruits and nuts).

  3. She is an American success story, rags to riches, bootstaps up, etc. I admire that. Would never vote for her or watch her television shows but can respect what she has accomplished with her life.

    1. Oprah deserves credit for being a success story when EVERY SINGLE METRIC is against her. I think that being president would ruin the good life that she built for herself, but she will need to work all that out. She could win the Democrat nomination (and they'd turn on her like the snakes they are).

  4. Good summary on Oprah. She has to know at some level that it's a ton of work she would be signing up for, and that she'll be despised by about half the population instead of just ignored. Why take the demotion?

    OTOH, Trump took the demotion and hit to his lifestyle in the interest of public service. What if she felt the same way?

    1. She's a scrapper, and she clearly has the right to run. She'd be the first completely black president and the first woman president. How would Hillary react? But I agree with you, it's a demotion.

    2. She is definitely a scrapper, I'll give her that, but her long-time friendship with Harvey W. and her legacy of snake oil junk products is something I don't think she can avoid. Just one of many... a face cream created out of penile foreskins? Can we talk about that?

    3. I didn't know that she wore that sort of compound on her face. The photos of her without make-up would make a train jump the tracks and take a dirt road. Maybe she needs more penis on her face? I'm no expert, just a suggestion.

    4. Lol. That's where the snake oil and the weight loss mythos comes in. They don't really work, but she sells it so well.

  5. "...instead of being loved, be despised?"

    Would not be a problem for me, I already despise her.

    1. I don't think that I've ever watched her TV show. But you have to admit that she's a lot more popular at the moment than any politician in the Democrat Party.

      Then there's Rep. Nancy (Nasty) Pelosi who says that anything white men to is wrong - referring to her comment yesterday. If President Trump said that about any ethnic group, can you imagine the horror on CNN and MSNBC?

  6. There are a lot of people that 'want' her to run, if for nothing else than to dig into her shady dealings...

    1. I think that's one reason why she wouldn't run.

  7. Would she bring "Steadman" into the WH?

    1. Or maybe she'd turn him in on a newer model? I don't move in those circles, don't know and have difficulty caring.

  8. Millennials: make it obligatory for them to do six weeks intense army training followed by a months work in a soup kitchen before they are allowed to attend any interviews.

    1. That is clearly a start. Maybe they can travel to $hithole countries and work among the people so that they understand the difference and can appreciate what they have.
