Short Ribs and Random Thoughts Jan 10 2018

WHEN I WROTE the  last edition, I was still in despair at the idea of having to put up with Trump and his minions for four more years.  Now, as any people have pointed out ,  we just need to win the midterms, then impeach. I feel better.

TRUMP AT THE IMMIGRATION MEETING- Our Fake President’s handlers apparently wanted to showcase his maturity and knowledge after the revelations from the Michael Wolff book. Did you see his body language?  Arms folded protectively in front  of him. I’ve never sat through a meeting with someone in such a defensive posture, have you ?  Then at the end he throws the whole issue back to EVERYONE ELSE, saying he’ll sign anything. What leadership! If we get any changes in immigration, it won’t be due to Trump, although he’ll take credit.  BTW, what’s all the hate for “CHAIN MIGRATION”?  It’s called keeping  families together.

OPRAH FOR PRESIDENT- WORST IDEA EVER!!!!   Just what we need! Another TV star!  Let’s nip this one in the bud fast.  If she’s so hot to get into politics, let he serve a term in the Senate.  That’ll cure her .

NANCY PELOSI’S SON Paul Jr.,  apparently  a dingbat, hung with Trump at Mar-A-Lago over New Year’s. Now I can ignore the incessant begging letters from her.

I GOT A CALL the other night while watching TV  and didn’t jump to answer it. It turned out to be Assemblymember Jim Wood,  calling about the HCCDC endorsement .  Wood has run afoul of SINGLE PAYER and I guess there are those who don’t want to support him because  they don’t think he’s strong enough on, but it would help if we had a better bill to support. I’m okay with giving Jim another term.

WINTER SOUP ALERT: Last week in the NCJ, that wonderful woman,  Janice Fumiko Cahilll, published a trio of soup recipes of which the “Rough and Ready Borscht”  turned out to be life-altering. I had never bought a beet before!  Only takes a couple of hours to make.  You’ll thank her.    https://www.northcoastjournal.com/humboldt/winter-simmer/Content

  1. Do you really think that Trump should be impeached? That would mean that Mike Pence would be President, and he would accomplish the Republican agenda better than Trump and actually make things worse. Better to keep Trump as President and just deal with him while continuing to work around him so that he “thinks” he is in control, but in reality good government policies are introduced in spite of him. But it comes down to being a no win situation and perhaps the best idea is to just ride out the next three years.

    • Like a lot of people I will not voluntarily listen to his droollings one more minute than I have to. Pence is weird, like everything else that comes out of Indiana, but he’s not unhinged to the extent Trump is.
