  1. I find I’m clicking less and less on videos (and articles) of Democrats & Co., whether they’re being their idiot selves or just being squashed and roasted. Their day is (I pray) passed, and they are decreasingly interesting to me, even as pitiful amusement fodder. And one can only take so much #Winning watching them writhe and seeth over each Trump appointment & tweet!

    Enjoyed that Diamond & Silk video. I need to reactivate my subscription to them. During the primaries, I turned off several news feeds and YouTube subscriptions to both #NeverTrump and #HyperTrump sites, for just being too extreme. Anti-Trump sites were foam at the mouth offensive. Some Pro-Trump sites would, for example, bash good folk like Cruz and Levin, etc. Not that they weren’t due some criticism, but it was just unnecessarily harsh and too much “Trump can do no wrong.” I’m enjoying D&S much more since the election!

    I never watched any Diamond and Silk, but when Dearest and I go out, we listen to Laura and Rush or whoever on the radio. A few weeks ago, they were on … I think it was The Laura Ingraham Show. I was impressed. They’re a lot more savvy than I expected and they claim they make a living off their brand. I think I’ll subscribe! 🙂

    Joy’s visit to Cuba … mmmm, did you know that medical tourism is a big industry in Cuba? Bringing DOLLARS into that sink hole doing botox and boob jobs on rich people like Joy. And you know they don’t use the filthy, understaffed, no medicines, crappy hospitals the Cubans use where you have to bring your own TP and bed sheets. As for 100% literacy … uh … you do know that dictatorships LIE about stuff like that, right? Moron.
