It rained on Trumps Parade a reflection on the gloom and doom too come...according too this morning sources, Trump in showmanship while taking his victory lap, will stop the car and sign an executive order on the fly, has this unfolded?

Well of course. It is still winter and you expect a bit of gloom. But don't worry, in about 2 weeks the groundhog will tell us if there will be an early end to winter. If there is going to be a longer winter it is great for the skiers, they bring a lot of money to the economy.

You got to be careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there.

I was there.  The rain was light even though the forecast was for substantial rain.

Rain in Washington on a day in January?  Odds are about 1:3. If that's the best people can come up with as a sign of the apocalypse, imagine how they'd react if Toronto won the Stanley Cup...

The 2020 thread here in Radio Chatter is already a couple of pages. Should we just skip it and start a 2024 thread?
Or, will that not be necessary either? After Ivanka does her 8 years, it will be Barron's turn in 2032. That will take us till at least 2040...  :)

Looking at the protests that have been going on for the last year and 218 days ( and counting ) over the 2016 election,
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protests_against_Donald_Trump

makes me very thankful to be a Canadian.  :)

Fine. I don't follow party politics in my our country, let alone theirs. I did my celebrating when Mayor Tory won our election. It's the only one I voted in.

Very thankful to be living in Canada after watching all these riots for so many months. Seems to be no end in sight.

I imagine sufferers of Obama Derangement Syndrome ( ODS ) must find watching the inauguration very therapeutic. Jackie Evancho!  :)

I know for me personally, watching/listening to those Trump haters having meltdowns, still, is very therapeutic for me.  An endless source of amusement and glee, as a matter of fact.  Both here in Canada and abroad.

I wonder how much police overtime there is to keep the traffic moving?

Hard to tell if this is a movie or a preview of tonight in Washington DC.?

DC EMS staging for a busy night. I hope they have a safe shift.

I don't vote in federal or provincial elections. At least, I try not to make a habit of it.


Personally, I don't give a f%$# which party wins in Washington. It's just the months of riots in this 2016 election that are hard to ignore. And there seems to be no end in sight.

No government experience? No problem!  :)

"For a Republican Party that was desperate to woo nonwhite voters before Donald Trump tossed his toupee in the ring, and will be even harder-pressed to woo them once our present mess is over, Johnson could be the sort of person the GOP tries to renovate into a viable candidate."

Interesting.

. . . it will be Barron's turn in 2032. . .

Since he is only 10 years old, he won't be old enough for 2032 (won't reach that until 2041), so the first presidential election he could run in is 2044.

I agree.  I suspect we as a country will cut off our nose to spite our face when it comes to working with new American policies. 

I'm still happy Trump won and I hope American prosperity will equal Canadian prosperity.
