I think it's worse than many think

I believe Groper Don the Con intends to tear down every norm associated with international relations.
He is of the view that the US is the 'imperial power' and the rest of the world are colonies by order.

Hint - China can devalue its currency without US permission but not according to this lunatic.

Tears for the dead in that Oakland fire

To think that I enjoyed a street and art festival in Miami on Friday and am now watching coverage of other street artists who died in a horrific fire in Oakland - now 33 bodies found

So I went to Miami for a few days

and had a really good time. We spent Friday afternoon/evening/night at the Art Basel downtown across the train tracks in Wynwood.
That was quite an experience - both the graffiti at Wynwood and the art on display were fabulous..
It was good to see people making some money hustling every imaginable thing including coconut water.
Got some free drinks and we supported the food trucks at Wynwood yard.

One of my nephews worries about gentrification with good reason - lots of original homes had for sale signs. Still it was loud and exciting - I was most impressed with Hebru Brantley's work and there was a French glassblower whose work was mind blowing. There were lots of artwork attacking Trump.
We were able to talk to some of the artists. Damn this planet has talented people.

Saturday afternoon we went to see Loving. I cried even though I knew they would win in the Supreme Court. Then we went to Dadeland Mall.

As you can see this was a well needed cleansing trip to enjoy our families and chill.

Now it's back to reality.

I stand behind Hamilton electors,

A teenager from Washington state has become the seventh person to indicate that she will break ranks with party affiliation and become a “faithless elector” in an attempt to prevent Donald Trump being formally enshrined as president-elect when the electoral college meets on 19 December.

Levi Guerra, 19, from Vancouver, Washington, is set to announce that she is joining the ranks of the so-called “Hamilton electors” at a press conference at the state capitol in Olympia on Wednesday.

The renegade group believes it is the responsibility of the 538 electors who make up the electoral college to show moral courage in preventing demagogues and other threats to the nation from gaining the keys to the White House, as the founding fathers intended.

“I stand behind Hamilton electors,” Guerra said in a statement to the Guardian. “I promised those who elected me that I would do everything I could to keep Donald Trump out of office.”
