Contrasts! At the recent Davos gathering the President of China was espousing globalization while our new populous leader was pulling in the sidewalks.
Seventy plus years ago we and our British allies crossed the English channel with an armada of ships of all kinds for the D-Day invasion. Now we read that the Brits are sending five military tanks across via the thirty mile "chunnel" in a feasibility study if ever the need arises to support NATO in an emergency. To paraphrase Paul Revere "One if by chunnel - two if by sea.........."

The first dance: He chose Sinatra's "I did it my way!" The lyric begins "And now the end is near..." Is he trying to tell us something?
The speech: I will leave the disecting to the experts but suffice the historians were not pleased. But the use of the phrase "America First" has ominous overtones of 1940 and predates when he was born. He seems to have no sense of history. My lasting impressions are the words "carnage" and "Tombstones" and his clenched fist at closing.
I expect Obama is on the golf course today and we are stuck with this mean-spirited man for four years. Please God, not eight!

In the discussion of Donald Trump's non-attempts to divest of his holdings, Mark Shields remarked "It's not a blind trust, it's a seeing eye trust."
Lesson learned: Never keep John McCain waiting in the cold Washington air. MSNBC did eliciting this remark from the Senator "I'm freezing my ass off"!
President Obama held his 39th and final press conference yesterday after which he will become an interested citizen - we surely will miss this decent man.

you can buy the wax likeness of a past president at an auction being held at the Hall of Presidents and First Ladies. It is expected that Lincoln will draw the highest price with such as Millard Fillmore somewhat down the scale. William Howard Taft was known for his girth and his descendant, Bob Taft, doubts he has space for a large wax figure and has settled for a bobblehead likeness instead.

-Trump's not a perfect man, by any means. He kind of reminds me of my ex-husband.
-I believe he knows how to build things.
-I made up my mind for Trump at the last minute.
-I don't think Donald Trump is really Republican but he's not in a box.
-If he would only have kept his mouth shut during the primary........
-I felt he was the lesser of two evils.
-I laughed Trump off like everyone else did.......
