There is a vague but growing movement afoot built around the equally vague idea that somehow Trump can be impeached or thrown out even before he takes office on Jan. the 20th. I'm unclear as to the grounds of this liberal ice-cream castle built in the air and feathered canyons everywhere to borrow from an old Judy Collins song. Does Destiny care that much that Hillary Clinton lost?

The Hollywood mass trauma over Donald Trump's victory continues, the mass hemorrhaging. I'm not mad about this but it is curious. Of course they are entitled to their pov but why is it always the same? Actress Jennifer Lawrence recently penned a major essay saying we should all feel enraged and other hyperventilations. I disagree alot with many of Rush's theories and opinings, haven't listened to him in years but the only thing I can come up with is as he once said. Modern-day actors and actresses are so incredibly wealthy that deep down they actually feel guilty about it:)

With major insurers opting out of the exchange and premiums going up is it still worth keeping or even tweaking? Will it eventually be replaced by HillaryCare and how would this differ from DonaldCare? How are our nation's part-timers holding up those kept under 30 hours/week because of the original mandate? Finally whatever happened to if you like your colonoscopist you can keep your colonoscopist?

People yell at me when I say sometimes in exceptional circumstances it makes sense to sit out a presidential election. For me to darken in the circle for a certain candidate I have to like him or her say at least 65%. I don't feel that here. It'll be what it's gonna be:)

Trump went on the Dr. Oz show to wave his good health around. Conservatives seem fixated on Hillary's health (is that an ingrown toenail I see?). Let's face it Hil has some physical health issues but what about the Donald's mental and emotional health? Which matters more pneumonia or psychological insecurities? I just had a slight nap and so a blog was born.

I found myself drifting over to Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff and their PBS coverage of the start of the convention. With the exception of being pro-choice Rudy Giuliani offered real savory red-meat conservatism with Peter Lugar steak sauce. It was a little thick, grilled and char-broiled and the wonderful aromas permeated the convention floor. A black sheriff spoke and Blue Lives Matter was perhaps the main theme of the entire evening. There's a little Melania controversy now as she may have borrowed elements of a previous Michele Obama convention speech. The PBS panelists: neocon David Brooks noted they all had a feeling of starkness so I started to feel stark too even though I've had this starkness since I turned fifty. There were some last minute delegates who wanted to throw the whole thing into chaos like being forced into a date you don't like. Last observation - Chris Christie politely attended but he had your typical man's angry attitude towards rejection;)

Nothing happened for a while now there's been a few more unarmed black men killed by police. MN and LA and of course the cop ambush in Dallas. The conservative position seems to be whenever an unarmed black man winds up dead at the hands of the police he must have done something to bring it upon himself. The liberal position might be the cops are always 100% wrong in these tragic cases. Meanwhile most police departments today have taken to social media platforms as a kind of warmer friendlier more community-orientated police/social service agency so the juxtaposition between the cultivated department image and these ongoing recent and tragic news events is rather jarring. The Long Hot Summer;)

Part of def.: "a generalized feeling that something is wrong, to fear something but you don't know what it is" - - There's the bad choice of Trump vs. Clinton, ISIS is always in the news. You'll be in a modern hip mall checking out the wifi at Nordstrom Rack and you do have the random thought some guy is gonna come in, shoot that useless security guy and start yelling "Allahu Akbar." My Scripps card ain't working, am I gonna have to go on an Obamacare exchange? What if I'm frying chicken and my heart just stops working? I mean how many beats can it take? Colorectal stuff, always the polypic obsession after 50...I think maybe it's not so much a mental disorder, that the free-floaters are plugged into reality and the reality ain't good. The normal go about their day-to-day totally anxiety free because they really don't know what's going on. Indian Point......

Yes said FBI Director James Comey it was wrong and reckless of Hillary to discuss classified and sensitive info on her private servers but you know what? We're not gonna bring charges. I call this Charming Rogue Syndrome (not an exact fit because it is Hillary) to describe someone who skirts the law time and again and gets away with it meanwhile Joe Shmoe gets hammered. Anthony Weiner sends penis pics over the Internet and doesn't have a career.

I'll be honest I don't much follow the abortion debate anymore main reason is it's agitating especially right before you go to bed. A large
part of society practices abortion, always have and always will so that social fact is agitating so I prefer to think of other things. I'm tangentially aware of the issue though as Justice Kennedy didn't much care for those abortion restrictions down in TX designed to close as many clinics as possible. Must be my advancing age, my general social irritability as when presented with the need for abortion these days I'm most likely to go had to have sex didn't you? (Church Lady id) Those women activists down in TX they act like they won the World Series or the Super Bowl or something. IMO the Ole Gray Lady's love for abortion and yes it is love is on another level, otherworldly even. OK agita;)

That's the part I don't get. He should wake up at 3AM, stare at the purple blotches in the dark of the ceiling and get an eerie surreal feeling about himself and walk in the yard. I don't even wanna label this "sex/sexuality." He is going on trial on charges he drugged and sexually assaulted a Temple University woman ten years ago. Now when even Hef abandons you this should cut to the core of your very soul and yet his wife stands by him. I'm not getting it, what's with the necro stuff?

Last night towards the end of Megyn Kelly's exclusive interview with Donald Trump on FOX News Trump said "I like our relationship right now" and Megyn goes "I gave you my cell phone number." Happy texting guys.

Now they're calling for a federal investigation. I thought the main attraction of FB is to socially interact with other people on the web. Where else can you have 1,000 friends? Always going after Zuckerberg.

They are Sts. Jude, Rita of Cascia, Philomena and a Gregory. With so many millions the world over praying to these big four for impossible cases despaired of where do I rank? Main problem: chronic tinnitus and let's throw in maybe a couple other problems while we have the divine connection. On one website of prayer petitions is a woman who wants a problem employee removed from the workplace. Where does tinnitus rank? Is it higher on the list? It's at least a medical/health issue and they're big on that although it can't rank as high as cancer of course. How do these four saints go through literally millions of petitions and decide which ones deserve their attention first? Do they have computers? They must have large staffs helping them. Excuse me I just got a text message......oh that's just another YPD Alert.

According to the wiki meaning provided by Prince himself Purple Rain means "the end of the world, being with the one you love, letting your faith/god guide you." Prince was a religious sex symbol and according to one Times writer his sexual orientation was he loves You. Prince dead at 57. Why do the world's dictators live such long lives? Former SS guards live into their 90's, Manson still getting three squares a day? Prince 1958-2016 RIP

Hillary told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press "the unborn person doesn't have constitutional rights." I pass a Planned Parenthood on my way to work every day and they have a big banner "Health Care Happens Here." Makes it sound like I can walk in and maybe they can treat my catastrophic tinnitus and premature waking. This is not really a pro-life thread, you can discuss what have you.

I absolutely love the Shazam app because so many times I'll hear a song on the radio and don't know the group or artist. Only thing is it's an issue when you're driving. Reverse phone lookup - I don't like it if I accidentally call another person's cell and they can find out everything about me. Creepy. Police tips apps by Citizen Observer - chances are your town or city has one. I've used the YPD tips one and you get a fair response. Google + I avoid like the plague. It's all public and out there if you rate an app let's say so you might wanna delete that sex book from your library first. I actually see men in the stall gabbing away on their phones and if there's ever a hepatitis outbreak you'll know why:)

You know that police chokehold case. What's taking so long? Maybe it's complicated but it can't be that complicated. How many times can you analyze the same video? It's not Zapruder. Let's know one way or the other. Maybe before Obama leaves office?

With Obama's pick of centrist jurist Merrick Garland to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court I've been wondering. History is rife with conservative presidents nominating judges who later were less than pro-life but how come it never works the other way, having a liberal appointee who later turned out to be anti-Roe?

It must be in keeping with the aging trend but I find myself sleeping less. I fall asleep ok but I find myself prematurely waking and most of the time not really getting back to sleep. An alternative Alex Jones theory of tinnitus: maybe we can simply hear things other folks can't hear. While others may enjoy their joblessness it has a weird effect on me. It brings to the fore any depressive issues that may exist and when you're past the half-century mark you think alot more about your own mortality. Life really is short and tortoises live alot longer than man. Also when you get older you start taking the issue of hell more seriously, at least I do but I was raised Catholic and it never really leaves you. I've blogged about this before, I actually don't like work but I also don't like being out of work if that makes any sense.
