I watched both results of Brexit and this unfolding. No movie can rank in entertainment value. Fascinating times from an outsider's point of view :heya:

I'm grateful for my half-assed practice- :)

As for the rest of it .. "I don't know"- I don't know if a buckle is enough or too much or just right- But I'm going outside to rake leaves and help the wind get the job done a little faster- :)

It's one of the first places I went to online when I found myself feeling "uncomfortable"(?) :)

I have nothing else intelligent to say- :lol2:

P., Teresa,

The American musician John Cage, when asked about what he is "saying" in his music, said:

"I have nothing to say, and I am saying it."

--Joe

p.s. Mourning the passing of Leonard Cohen, here, this morning, after he passed away on Thursday. Age 82. He'd just released what is now his final album of songs a few weeks ago, too (You Want It Darker). He was also a long-time Zen Buddhist practitioner, with his Roshi.

Have you had the opportunity to listen to You Want It Darker?

Yes, sad news- My favorite is Hallelujah -- the Jeff Buckley cover ..

Thanks, Teresa. No, I don't have the new record, but have many of his early ones. I'll try to listen-around and see if I want to pick up the new one. I almost feel too sad to do so, though.

Prof. Allan Lichtman, who predicted D. J. Trump's electoral win, also predicts he will be IMPEACHED, by Republican Party individuals who will find his policies or foreign relations dangerous to the U.S.A.

This is an interesting 1-minute statement in the video by the Professor. It was evidently filmed prior to the date of Election Day (some time earlier than Nov. 8):

I agree that I think the Repubs would "love" to have V.P.-elect Pence instead as Pres., because he would be so much more controllable. Repubs can make that happen if they can impeach Trump (which they can probably very easily find grounds to do).

At present, Trump has 72 lawsuits of various kinds pending against him. The big fraud case about "Trump 'University' " is coming to a head, soon, too, I think.

Can you explain...i know right and left in Norway. The right are kvasi capitalists. And left kvasi communists. What are republicans and democrats? And maybe add some history as i know it is neccesary.
