Peace on Earth?

So fine, I dont try to do politics too often on here, because I acknowledge that not everyone has the same ‘fairly liberal’ views as me, though its fair to say my views are pretty much in line with Jean Harlow, as much as I can tell, which is fine by me! So yes, this might be the point that rabid Trump fans should push that little red x in the top right corner, and go find something else to read!

Just to say, if needed, that all unpleasant political comments will be deleted, or not approved, depending on status, so no point insulting me as a socialist, or the type, and expecting it to show on the blog! Equally, I’d like to keep other comments tempered, so no actual insults for the other party either.

The last couple of days have seen an escalation of the nuclear arms race, on Twitter at least! Yes, we are talking about that idiot with a surname of Trump, if you had any doubt? Apart from the minor technical point that (thankfully) he isnt yet President, and in no position to make such decisions, its the announcement of it on Twitter, of all places that worries me the most! Yes, Putin is stirring things up, probably because he knew Trump would bite, and put his foot in it again, and it worked! The scary thing is all the innocent people in danger of suffering because of this, but lets face it, Trump would never let that get in the way of his ego.

Now before some jump on me as a Hilary lover, I’m not! Cant stand the woman, dont trust the woman, but at least she doesnt have the patience levels of a 5 year old before doing something. She waits, well, slightly longer than that! Equally, I can see why she lost the election, people dont trust her, and in truth, who can blame them?

But yes, at Christmas, supposedly a time of peace, and goodwill on Earth, we get this! Ah well…The only irony for me, Pence is even more scary for folk like me, given his views on LGBT folk, and Gay Conversion Therapy, and all that. Fine, I might enjoy all that electro therapy treatment, but not for the reason he believes in it!

So yes, the what I assume is not too serious talk, of independence for California would suit me fine, they might even approve working status for me then, lol! I know, I know, but I can hope! Lets just hope America can survive all this, in all honesty.

OK, video time. The song is apt, and also, given that Bowie died this year, it seems suitable. There are so many tales about the story of the recording of this, that which one is strictly true, who knows? Some of it is covered here at least

Yes, thats right, pretty much Bing Crosby’s last performance before his death! Still had it though. I’ve just taken the actual song clip, if you want to see the pre song stuff, its not hard to find.
