It is 2:48 AM on December 24th – the morning of Christmas Eve. To mark the cultural and religious highlight of the entire year across the Western world I thought I should post something about the holiday.
My focus is the mythical figure known as Santa Claus in the West, Ded Moroz in the East, Father Christmas, Father Frost, Wizard of Winter and the many other forms and names he takes across the world. I learned that there were so many names for this wizard that it reminded me of a quote from everyone’s favorite wizard Gandalf the Grey.
Today I was invited to the official opening of Playboy in Vietnam!
Ok, it isn’t that special because I’d still have to pay. But this still makes me wonder how I got on the mailing list! The e-mail they used isn’t one that is really ‘out there’ so I’m thinking they paid for a database of the e-mails of foreigners who live (or have lived) in Vietnam. I haven’t lived there in over ten years so I’m not sure their money was well spent!
Half of the United States remains in shock from the election of Donald Trump. Their only hope to awake from the nightmare was dashed yesterday with his confirmation by the electoral college. That is all she wrote liberals, welcome to the next four years.
The liberals wonder how half of their countrymen could be so stupid? In an effort to understand they might turn on Fox News, or for the younger generation that get their news from social media, click on The Blaze and share a video from Tomi Lahren. For those who have been fortunate enough to never see either Fox or Tomi let me sum them up for you. You have beautiful women who are perpetually angry bitching about the liberals. You also have a few men as supplements to the attractive women who are also very angry and complain about liberals. It is all prom queens and quarterbacks.
It has been another very long spell without a post on this site. One would think I’d be writing about the victory of Donald Trump at the least but no, I haven’t been motivated to do that.
This morning however the incidents at Standing Rock have motivated me. Donald Trump will be just another footnote in the history of the USA but I feel that the incidents at Standing Rock are more important than even the election of the demagogue Trump. Republicans and Democrats will continue to fight each other and try to reverse gains the others have made each election cycle but the Native Americans have had to fight their “white man” oppressors ever since America was still a British colony.
