Visited my mom, about 2 hours there and back but not bad. Took her out to dinner, a nice night for all. Still digesting it I think.

Hey, have you watched The Daily Show with Trevor Noah?
AdLib 7 days ago
Must have been a big meal!
KillgoreTrout

Oh yeah. We had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at home the night before so it was a big eatin’ weekend!
AdLib 7 days ago
No, I haven’t watched it yet. I’ve seen clips, and I think Noah is doing OK, for a newbie. I’m still not used to the Daily Show without Stewart. In many ways, he was the show.

When Aeroplanes first flew, they were flimsy, underpowered and crashed more than often. Then they were used as observation platforms during WWI. Then they armed them and the fighter was born. Then they invented rockets and missiles to attach to take their lethal effect further. All this from a bicycle shop. They also evolved into something good — passenger aircraft,used by billions. Now a new weapon has emerged in a similar fashion, but with incredibly devastating effects. This stealth weapon has been responsible for murder, genocide, suicides and the ability to devastate humankind like no other. Like aircraft, it began as a university test, developed along good lines for the benefit of mankind, then morphed into the carrier of hatred, injustice, bullying, inducing suicide and calls to commit mass murder for no really valid reason. This is a weapon now which can bring down governments, start and sustain wars and cause unlimited misery wherever it strikes. It is our ‘good friend’, the Internet. How sad.

PPO – I would just suggest that the Internet itself doesn’t kill but yes, like any tool, it can be used to help destroy or help build.

Monica – All is well my way. Daughter is off to a school dance, so excited!

Wonderful AdLib, High School? Wow, those were the days. Seems so long ago, but I still remember the excitement as if it were yesterday.

Anyone read about Trump making anti-semetic comments to a..get this…Jewish audience?

Monica – Middle school, it’s only the third dance she’s ever been to.

Tralfamador KT? Where is that?

OMG AdLib, that’s even more of an experience. I hope she has a wonderful time.

KT – What I heard was that Trump relied on the stereotype of Jews all bargaining, saying that they’re all negotiators.
AdLib 7 days ago
Far, far away, in a differnt time zone in another galaxy! LOL! It’s from a few novels by Kurt Vonnegut.

Yeah, can you believe this twerp? It’s frightening to think that he’s the front runner.
KillgoreTrout

Monica – Yep, at that age, the girls mostly hang out with the girls and the boys with the boys. Which for this dad, is just fine! Though, they do have their crushes and all and some of them are more “advanced” than others.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT – I’m going to write an article on the myth of Trump’s popularity. He has less than 30% of the GOP supporting him, which only has about 30% of the voters in America. So in reality, only around 9% of voters support him. That’s it! But the MSM pound the drums about how popular he is.
AdLib 7 days ago
“Are there any Jews that don’t negotiate deals?” Trump, you’re such an idjit!
AdLib 7 days ago
Good point. I can’t believe he’s made it this far. Seriously. The guy is truly a clown.

Thanks for the vid, Monica. He’s a travelling reality show.

AdLib, I taught and administrated at the Middle Schoool level so I have attended many of those dances. What you say is true, they’re really cute at that age when it comes to the girl/boy separation. I believe it is more fun for them that way, they get caught up on the latest, but believe me every girl knows which boy belongs to which girl, and vice versa.

KT – The best thing that could happen for Dems is to have Trump the GOP nominee, it will be a worse implosion of the GOP up and down the ticket than Goldwater! Repubs and Dems despise him, in a GE he and the Repubs would be torn down.
AdLib 7 days ago
Do you think he’ll make it that far?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Actually, is there anybody that doesn’t negotiate deals? We all do, so, with that in mind, I’d say he said more in that sentence than what came out of his mouth.
monicaangela

We’d never get through life without negotiating some of the time.
KillgoreTrout

I believe Trump could make it to the nomination, and yes it would be great for the democrat nominee and the democratic ticket. Not so great for the country. What would a Trump candidacy say about this nation?
monicaangela

Monica – Cool, so you know this age very well. They do have “boyfriends” and “girlfriends” but it’s kind of a shallow thing, they can’t date and just see each other only at school for the most part so it’s not a problem but had to tell her she doesn’t have or need to have a boyfriend at that age. There are some kids their age who have older brothers and sisters which makes them a bit more advanced about things for their age. Not the best influences.

Life itself is negotiation of one kind or another if you intend to live for any length of time.

KT – Which Repub can beat Trump? The polls are kind of frozen until the first of the year, those who haven’t been paying attention won’t tune in until after the holidays. Maybe Cruz or Rubio could beat him but they’re both as weak as Trump with most Americans.
AdLib 7 days ago
monica – Well, “the blacks” like him, he claims. I guess “them haggling Jews” like him too?
AdLib 7 days ago
It really is difficult to say right now. Even though Trump seems to be the least fanatical, religion-wise, he is fanatical in other ways. I guess it really depends on the religious right’s vote.

Ad, most of the middle school kids in the school where I taught, used the idea of dating as a sort of group cliche thing. Certain groups, pared off and considered themselves dating within that group. Dating at that age isn’t the same as dating in High School or college. Most kids with older siblings at that age realize it isn’t the same thing as their older siblings call dating.
monicaangela

Everybody like Trump AdLib, just ask him and he’ll tell you so. Don’t bother asking blacks and Jews, what do they know.
monicaangela

7 days ago
monica, I remember it well. I had crushes, but I couldn’t have called it dating. We did have some “spin the bottle,” moments though.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
monica – But that’s my point, only about 9% of voters support Trump so if he wins the GOP nom, it says a lot about how that shrinking party that only represents the wealthy and needs to pander to racists and religious extremists has become a complete joke but I don’t think it reflects on America. The fringe party puts up a fring candidate and he will be trounced by the majority of Americans. That says something good about the majority of Americans. And remember, these nutjobs have been around forever in one form or another. Remember the Moral Majority?
AdLib 7 days ago
There really aren’t any good candidates running against Trump in the republican party. There really doesn’t appear to be any good republicans IMHO.
monicaangela

Yes KT, I remember those spin the bottle moments, however they didn’t usually occur at School dances. That was more at basement dances or other functions that we sometimes had an opportunity to attend. And even then, it wasn’t something that many girls liked participating in, at least not the girls I grew up with.
monicaangela

I am losing faith in voters in America. I can’t for the life of me understand why Trump is still of interest to republican voters. Think it may be the Media?
monicaangela

Yeah, never at a school dance. I certainly remember “basement parties.” T

What I’m really looking forward to is Jeb Bush’s having to drop out of the race. I can’t wait to see that speech. To quote Cartman from South Park, “Oh the tears of unfathomable sadness! Yummy!”
