A MIND FOREVER VOYAGING THROUGH STRANGE SEAS OF THOUGHT, ALONE


This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.



The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

TRUMP ELECTION NEWS FLASH AND THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

Well, imaginary readers, you got to be just a little impressed.  Back on Oct 23rd I posted what I thought the map would look like and if it weren't for the illegal aliens and homeless voters in Colorado taking it blue, barely, I would have hit it dead solid perfect.

When I finally went to bed early this morning, Trump still had the popular vote but I knew it was not enough to overcome CA voters and that is why there is an electoral college.

See, back at the beginning, the founding fathers figured out that Boston, NY, and Philly had more people in them than the rest of the original 13 colonies; so if it were just a popular vote, those big cities would dictate to the entire country who won an election.

So they came up with this cool electoral college to prevent it from happening then and prevent it from happening now.  For those who think it should just be a popular vote, let me tell you what will happen.

No politician will ever visit NH, VT, KY, TN MS, LA, AR, KS, MS, NB, ND, SD, WI, MN, ID, WY, UT, NV, NM, AZ - why would they?  Total waste of time, just win LA and SF and you've completely off set all those states in voting.  Add Boston, NY, Philly, Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and maybe Denver and you have a complete run away.  Promise them everything, screw the rest of the country.

But with the Electoral College, NY, and Alaska were important, MN was important - by the time CA came in, it was over baby!!!

Now CA want's to leave the union and I'm thinking, can we help you pack?

But something happened last night that is important.  Look at the votes in FL, PA, and MI - look how close they are - and Hillary didn't want a recount?

So here is what happened.  Podesta makes the announcement and in the meantime Hillary is talking to Trump and here is the deal that was struck.  Hillary will concede the election, no recounts, and Trump agrees to not aggressively pursue prosecuting Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea and they can ride off into the sunset with their 100's of millions.

That was the deal that took place last night while America slept.

The Clinton's get away with it, for now, and Trump is president.

Trump's first deal as president, fair trade if you ask me.

Oh, yea, that earlier post about sheriffs monitoring polling for illegals, I made that up.  And since Trump won I will declare that post prevented millions of illegal from going to the voting booth yesterday and Trumps' victory is all my doing.  Too much?
