It was a raging success

The fundraiser was spectacular. Hizhonor, Lil Eddie Murray was there politicking, which was appropriate to get folks all excited. The line to the bar for the Phoenix was long, but I ran into my ol' pal Chicago Jimmy who had a table so we got waitress service. Her name was Reese, and she knew the Terminator reference. Very bouncy, happy, while running her butt off. Good to get that sort of professional service.

By the time we left they had tapped 8 kegs of the stuff, and that was about 10 pm with hours to go! That's about $2000 I have been told but I am not gonna bet the bank on it.

I quote De Tocqueville:

The health of a democratic society may be measured by the quality of functions performed by private citizens.

In this instance, the people came together, well outside the constraints of government, to lift up our fellow citizens. Quiet rare enough in Seattle.

More to come, by popular request.

Politics: I was visiting Phoenix last week. Spent most of my time in
Fountain Hills. I had to catch a plane at 11:00 on Sunday morning. So I missed the Trump rally at the fountain. I drove by cop cars at every intersection, as well as one protest rally on a main road into Fountain Hills.
My grandson did attend the rally. He was a big Bernie Sanders advocate.... until he had the opportunity to hear Bernie speak, then well... he was more than a little disillusioned.

His assessment of the Trump rally was: The atmosphere was electric, the energy level was massive, he had never seen that level of excitement and energy anywhere except a couple of rock concerts.

Trump isn't my first choice for a president. But damn, has he ever done a job on the establishment GOP, a job that those traitorous bastards deserved years ago.

I am curious to know what about Bernie's speech turned him off.
Trump is not my first choice either, but I consider him to be waayyy better than ANY Democrat I can think of.

Hi Crabby,
Two months ago, he was telling me about how all the college students were promoting Bernie, and how 'his age group' was thinking. I didn't argue with him. I told him about my years 'The 60s,' we had heroes too, that were socialists and Marxists, as well. Then we talked about innocuous things like economics, religion, sex and pot.

So I was completely surprised when he commented about listening to Bernie. (I don't know where or how, but..) His comment was that, "That Old Geezer has his head up his butt."

Since I couldn't argue with that assessment, we moved on to other more important things, like religion, sex and condoms, and important shit.

The great Conservative BillO chatting with a gop front runner:

"You did not mention Afghanistan in the address. …What exactly will you do about Afghanistan?" O'Reilly asked.

TRUMP: I’d stay in Afghanistan. It’s probably the one place we should have gone in the Middle East because it’s adjacent and right next to Pakistan, which has nuclear weapons. ...That’s one place, frankly, instead of going to Iraq, we should have probably gone there first.
