I arrived here to read but progressed to writing. I love this avenue of self-expression. I am a blonde but a brainy one. Educated, sophisticated, well read and well travelled. Intelligence, humour, grace and authenticity are important to me. And passion, always passion.

Trump has been played like a yoyo by Putin with a few complimentary words. Imagine the leader of the free world made into putty by a ruthless dictator's flattery. The Donald seems to admire dictators and thinks that the presidency would be the same. He has no idea how the government works in the US - a combination of the two houses of Congress and the President. He imagines he would rule by fiat and has blamed Clinton for not solving every problem single-handedly for the past thirty years. He is singularly unfit to be President having appealed to the worst in people and normalizing racism, sexism, xenophobia, and so much more. The list is endless. And now we know that he has sexually assaulted women as some sort of droit de seigneur of a rich entertainer. He says he will not accept the election results (unless he wins which is unlikely) and suggests that the 2nd Amendment is a solution - armed violence. He has gone very close to suggesting that Clinton be assassinated, which as I understand it on its own is a crime. I have seen his supporters saying that if he loses that doing this would be a patriotic act. How much more crazy can they get?Trump has to be defeated and defeated soundly enough to give control of the House and the Senate to the Dems. The GOP has to rebuild itself from the ground up offering a conservative alternative to the Dems and casting out the alt right extremists and their odious opinions. Perhaps they will form another party led by Trump and Steve Bannon with Roger Ailes as their media guru, like the extreme right parties in Europe. The GOP sold their souls to Trump and will reap the rewards of that.
I am more afraid of what will happen after the election, which I expect that Trump will lose. There is a segment of his followers that are particularly disturbing. Locking Clinton up is not enough for some of these people. They are now vowing to take her out. I saw one man interviewed who said it would be a patriotic act. As I understand it, making such a threat is a crime. It is people like him should be locked up.Trump knows he is going to lose and is lashing out in every way, trying to undermine the process, an effort to delegitimize another president as he did with President Obama. This is contrary to how election contenders behave in the US. They accept the outcome. If anyone could have made an issue of legitimacy it was Al Gore, who lost to George Bush because of Florida where his brother was governor and in charge of the process along with a GOP Secretary of State, Katherine Harris. She too was clearly doing whatever she could to skew the results to Bush. The Supreme Court made the final decision led by Scalia. Gore accepted it all instead of keeping the country in turmoil for months over the 500 or so Florida votes that lost the election for him. He did win the popular vote in the country, but put country before party and himself in an act of grace.I think we will see Trump unraveling before us until the election and unwilling to concede if he loses. The GOP is likely to split with one half made up of its traditional politicians like Paul Ryan, and another with the alt right Steve Bannon, and Roger Ailes and Donald Trump. This second part will continue with its racist, sexist, nativist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic rhetoric to the delight of those who fanatically supported Trump and agreed with the hateful ideas openly asserted or given some cover between the lines. So, there is reason to fear for the US, no matter how this election ends.
After last night's performance, we understand why Trump admires Putin so much. Talking about putting your political opponents in jail is reminiscent of dictators like Putin and Stalin, not elected presidents in democracies. He has bragged about sexually assaulting women, women who likely could not pursue it because of his money and power, so the criminal acts have been perpetrated by him. He is a volatile child-man, with an enormous ego, thin skin, and no moral compass. His response to criticism is to vow revenge in a Nixon-like fashion. He lies with impunity. In Trumpworld, the earth is flat and black is white if he says so and it is convenient. This is like the children's story, "The Emperor's New Clothes" in that his followers are willfully blind to his utter and complete lack of ability and character to be POTUS. So long as he keeps spewing hate they are happy. I well understand that Hillary Clinton is a flawed candidate, but her flaws are nothing compared to The Donald's. The town hall likely ended in a draw at best from Trump's point of view. Trump used a scorched earth approach that will keep his base. He did nothing to increase the number of people voting for him, especially women and independents. His remaining on the ticket is the best outcome for Clinton. All he has to do is keep talking and threatening and lying and she wins.
Oh geez, that pull-away by her... yeah, now I see why she stuck that hand out. It's creepy and more than a little bit sick. I think this man has mental health issues for a lot of reasons and this is one of them.
A fucking handshake though... Oh hey we are on TV, let me give my daughter a handshake so it's not weird lol. He has made some very inappropriate remarks about Ivanka and allowed Howard Stern to call her a piece of ass. What father would be complicit in a such a conversation about his daughter? There is a part of him that sees her that way. It is best that he keep his hands off her. Aside from all of the other reasons that he is unfit to be the POTUS, he has lots of issues with women, including his daughter, always viewing them as possibilities for sex. His conversation with Billy Bush is evidence of that and I understand that there are lots more like that which will likely be revealed before this is over.
The only question now is if the Democrats will retake both the House and the Senate. Trump is toast and is taking the GOP down with him. The GOP candidates now denouncing him should have done so months ago instead of defending the indefensible. If they had put country before party, Trump would never have gotten the nomination.
My fear would be dementia or Alzheimer's disease. There is something worse. It is Lewy body disease which is like having Alzheimer's and Parkinson's simultaneously. So you are deteriorating both mentally and physically. I understand that Robin Williams' wife said he had been diagnosed with it.
When is the next one? This coming Sunday evening.
Monday morning. Susan awoke and found herself alone in bed. Michael, her husband, had gotten up very early and gone off to the airport to catch a flight for a business trip. Susan stretched across the width of the bed and thought that she was missing him already. They had been married ten years and still had sex often. She reasoned that this was because they maintained their curiosity about...

It was one of those perfect June days that we wait for all winter. The sun was warm, the sky a clear and intense blue without a cloud in sight. It felt like slipping into a warm bath rather than the sauna that the heat and humidity of August would bring. There were even people out sailing at midday this Friday as Stacey gazed out of her office window toward Lake Ontario. They were starting...

I love the weekend for many reasons, but foremost is morning lovemaking. We are both busy with work all week so this is not a weekday thing unless we wake up early. Even then it is not conducive to either inhibition or romance to be having sex with one eye on the clock. Even for a hit-and-run quickie. David and I both like staying in bed and recovering slowly rather than rushing to shower,...

He was usually a man of intellect and analytical certainty. The growing conflict between...
