Finally!!!

We the people have called our Representatives, protested, campaigned, and VOTED.

In the words of a great man "YES WE CAN".

The battle of our House was won in the great Blue Wave of 2018. We are the big tent that protects our democracy and human decency.

Yes. We can. And we did.......

IMPEACH MF45!!!!!!!!!










Happy Thanksgiving Loners

To those of you spending the day with family or friends, I hope it's full of laughter and smiles. (We'll hold down the fort while you're out)

If you are spending the holiday alone, I wish you a day full of contentment and peace. (Turkey served in the loners' lounge tmrw at 5)

Have a wonderful day and cheers to all our Loner friends.




Someone's gonna sing this to me one day...

He just did this...

Context: He starts talking about Antifa. Then makes the hand sign. Intentional? I just took this pic a few minites ago.

Edit: OMG with what he was saying along with this sign...

If anyone knows how to find or make a video clip of that, please let me know.






Thanks dewsgirl for finding a clip

Well, I've survived another wreck

I don't want to drive or ride in a car ever again. I was hit headon last fall.

Yesterday I was driving my little ragtop and...yes it was a schizo squirrel in the road. I swerved to the right to miss the little fellow, not realizing how deep the drop off was.

I panicked and slammed on my brakes, making my car spin in the grass. When I tried to correct and get back on the road I lost control and flipped my car.

I'm lucky to be alive. My hand is broke, have a goose egg on my head, and some scrapes.

Luckily my neck and back are fine and I'm not decapitated.

Not sure what the Universe is trying to tell me. Wish She'd just call and let me know...

Looks like you all get to put up with me for a little longer.

Has anyone read "The Arms of Krupp" ?

It's a fascinating biography about Essen's Krupp family. (Germany)

I'm about 1/3 through it.

So today was grocery day

The first house on my rural road is a crack house waving a giant confederate flag. I do not know these neighbors, nor do I want to.

Today is grocery day, so I drove into town .

There was a road crew working on the bridge. Two flagmen and two men working on the bridge. One black man and three hispanic/latino men.

The black man was holding a stop/slow sign...right in front of the house with the confederate flag.

When he stopped me, I waved him to my window. I said that I was sorry that he had to work in front of that hateful house and that most people on this hill didn't hate like that. He was polite and said a simple thank you.

I'm embarrassed and sick that these people had to be exposed to that shit.

How would you all respond and did I say the right thing?

Look into mah eyez...





Don't know what happened, but I have a sudden urge to wrap my walls with carpet and put up the Christmas tree early.

Im trying to start drawing again.

This was done with a bic ink pen. It's not great, but it helped me express some of my "darkness".

It's a self drawing of me trying to write down my experiences while being attacked by my inner "demons" and insecurities.




Adding a pencil sketch from a few years ago of my son. This one brings me joy. This is where I want to be again soon...


Any of you know anything about the RDIF? (Russia)

The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) is Russia's sovereign wealth fund established in June 2011 by the Russian government to make equity investments in high-growth sectors of the Russian economy. RDIF's mandate is to co-invest alongside large and sophisticated global investors, thus acting as a catalyst for foreign direct investment in Russia.[1] The CEO of RDIF is Kirill Dmitriev.

History
Edit

RDIF was founded in June 2011 under the leadership of both President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as part of a broader initiative to improve the investment climate of Russia and establish Moscow as an international financial center. RDIF is managed by a team of private equity investors with broad international and Russian experience.

Stephen A. Schwarzman is on it's International Advisory Board. He's also a friend of trump's and is the Chair of his Strategic and Policy Forum.


Schwarzman's son, Teddy's law firm he worked at got fined for working with Manafort......!!!
2015 Skadden becomes the first law firm to advise on more than $1 trillion worth of deals in a single year.[14]
2019 Skadden pays $4.6 million settlement to the Department of Justice over Skadden's failure to register as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agent Registrations Act.[15] The $4.6 million represents Skadden's fees for up to 950 hours of work with Paul Manafort and the Ukrainian government in 2012, which Skadden had initially told the Department of Justice had been billed at 100 Ukrainian hryvnias ($13) per hour.[16] As of May 2019, Skadden, along with Mercury Public Affairs and the Podesta Group, have been under investigation by the Southern District of New York (SNDY) for possible lobbying violations regarding former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.[17]

This law firm made 1 Trillion dollars in 2015, becoming the first law firm to ever make that much in a year...

I've don't remember any news about RDIF, so my research is kind of at a stand still. I'm tired of our corporate overlords!


Side note: Schwarzman is also co-founder of Blackstone Group along with Pete Peterson (Lehman Brothers).
