  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC.
    That’s ‘Before Computers’.

    Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as

    World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all… Archbishop Temple’s School.

    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock ‘n’ Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during ‘The Cold War’…and then

    I became ‘a family’. Which meant that I sort of missed the ‘swinging sixties’, but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.

    During the ‘Thatcher Years’ I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 56 years of happy marriage.

Was that a ‘Wise-Guy’ in The White House ?

Posted by Big John on August 1, 2017

I know that it is sometimes difficult to understand the way that the US government works when looking at it from this side of ‘the pond’, but I have to ask … What in the name of old Abe Lincoln is going on in Washington at the moment ?

To me it looks like the West Wing has been fitted with a revolving door, on the inside of which is fitted a large box labelled …

“Presidential Appointments .. Please take one”.

It is filled with large envelopes bearing the instructions .. “Please deposit in the trash can on your way out”.

If I’m wrong about this how did a nice Italian boy named Tony- ‘the mouth’-Scaramucci become a ‘made m..’ member in Trump’s team. Could it be that they both attended a course on Joe Pesci’s English and horse’s head diplomacy ? .. If so, then someone could soon be ……

… “sleeping with the fishes” !

    By now, you know that “the Mooch” only lasted 10 days. He got fired before he was officially hired. That has to be a record of some sort. That is the kind of chaos that reigns in our White House these days, thanks to the morons who voted for him, some of whom are friends of mine. And, I never knew they were that gullible. I’m rethinking the kinds of people I’ve been friends with for as long as 30+ years.

    What you have to understand is, our Prez came to that office partly due to an element in our nation that worships entertainment celebrity. In his case his TV show catapulted him into that stratosphere with his famous line, “You’re fired!”. He knows what’s expected of him to please his base. How many more utterances of those words he’ll make remains to be seen.

  3. There’s a growing suspicion that a lot of Trump’s fellow Republicans in the Congress are going to hear “You’re Fired” in the next election cycle. Let us hope so.
