is Billary trying to look younger to under-thirty voters by appearing in public with Madeleine Albright? It’s not working. They just look like charter members of the Old-Bag Failed Secretaries of State Society.
I went into AA on June 28, 1980, which means that, as of today, I have lived one day at a time without a drink exactly 13,000 times.
My goal in sobriety remains slow, steady progress. Had I only walked the length of one football field each day for 13,000 days, I would have arrived 739 miles from where I started. Not an earth-shaking distance but certainly far, far from where I was when I first crawled into AA.
I’ll (not) drink to that.
Everyone must believe in something.
I believe I’ll have another drink.
If I could subtract the years I’ve spent waiting for Windows to load from my age, I would be an adolescent again.
Not that that’s necessarily a desirable thing (except for the reliable and continual erections).
Watching The Big Bang Theory the other day I was struck by the resemblance between Leonard Hofstader and Ted Cruz. Does Ted have some explaining to do?
Interesting article from Politico:
I asked you what most defines Donald Trump supporters, what would you say? They’re white? They’re poor? They’re uneducated?
You’d be wrong.In fact, I’ve found a single statistically significant variable predicts whether a voter supports Trump—and it’s not race, income or education levels: It’s authoritarianism.
A little scary if true. The generally perceived need for an authoritarian leader is likely what swept Adolf Hitler into office in the 1930’s.
On the other hand, isn’t authoritarianism one of the traits generally associated with a strong leader?
