Still, Brexit is pegged as impossible and apocalyptic by the media.
Funny. British PM Theresa May seems pretty positive.
Britain is an open and tolerant country, but the message from the public before and during the referendum campaign was clear. Brexit must mean control of the number of people who come to Britain from Europe, and that is what we will deliver.

Feels great. Again.
The Obama presidency ends today. Good riddance. He hardly deserves a postscript. But no rant here. No quotes. No links. No laundry list of failure and malfeasance. Just three quick points.
1. Good will - Our first non-white president, Obama started with more goodwill and political capital than any other president. That was quickly squandered.
2. Divisive - Jimmy Carter is the first president I remember. With gas lines and inflation and unemployment and Iranian hostages, Carter's message was clear: America's best days were behind us. He was the "malaise" president.
Obama was the "divisive" president... a far more negative state. His strategy was to intentionally pit American against American for his own gain. Obama separated us by gender, wealth, religion, sexual orientation, political persuasion, and especially race. His disservice to African-Americans and our inner cities stands out as a particularly ugly blemish on Obama's 8 years.
3. Hard left - The first leftie president in my lifetime, Obama rejected and worked against The American Dream. Those who disagreed with Obama were tagged as idiots and/or deplorable racists. It's my first exposure to the "end justifies the means" approach of the hard left. All this negativity was supported and amplified by the media over and over again.
In 2016, America said nuts to Obama, the left, the media and political correctness. Also, we didn't elect a gol dang crook. That's kind of nice. (snort)
I'm hopeful that Trump will continue to be Trump. He said he'll keep tweeting (btw, you can follow Trump without signing up on Twitter... just goto his page twitter.com/realDonaldTrump). I hope he acts like the businessman he is. Action. Change. Success. As Trump would say... Winning.
Here's a nice summary from Investor's Business Daily.
Yes, Trump's agenda is broad and ambitious. Repeal and replace ObamaCare. Rebuild America's infrastructure. Cut taxes. Slash spending and the size of government. Most of all, he has pledged to reunite us as a people after the most divisive presidency in modern history. If he accomplishes even the last item on this daunting list, he could become the most transformative president of all.
The positivity. Feels great. Again.
Aw, snap. Aw, snap.
I got this message from google because my wireless was slow to connect.
Of course, that made me think of Regular Show. (ha)
Aw, snap. Aw, snap.I'm still strolling around the castle singing Aw, snap. (ha!)
Come to our macaroni party then we'll take a nap.

Fun at the Jew-el
I laughed out loud (LOL'd, sorry) when I saw this magazine in the checkout line at the Jew-el.
I laughed less when I saw some Naper-malfeasance pasted to the front door of the Jew-el. You must now be 21 to buy tobacco in The Ville. A pox on Naperville's nabobs. Go away!
feels great again... yow, bill
PS - Bonus pic! Trump's top advisor Kellyanne Conway in her funky patriot get-up at the inauguration. Excellent.
