Looks like Trump is on the way to the Whitehouse. 245 to 218 at 08.00 this morning Paris time.

I hope it's good for the US people and also good for the rest of the world! a successful business man should be able to make a successful president. Let's hope so!
Interesting times indeed!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I am pleased with this, Zed.   Much more so than the other choice.  Not in the US, so what I think doesn't count though!

He got in.
I think he was the lesser of 2 evils. He changed horses in mid stream so may times I hope we didn't fall for a con job. There really wasn't much choice it was that Trump MIGHT screw us over, but we KNEW Hillary absolutely WOULD.

It is interesting already. The amount of anger being thrown out by Clinton supporters this morning is just outrageous. Mind you, these are the same types of individuals who would call everyone racist for not agreeing with every iota of what President Obama has to say on things. Funny how they throw epic tantrums when the election didn't turn out in their favor.

I think Hillary's biggest mistake was to start believing her own propaganda, no matter what the facts said.
Poll after poll said "there's enough gun control" but she kept on flogging that dead horse.

Then she alienated a lot of voters with her acidic comments & declarations of not just one or two, but dozens of groups she hated. She had no clue that she was using the same strategic & tactical handbook that Hitler did, & it was the equivalent of his invading the U.S.S.R. & in the end, it produced the same result.

She lost, not because she lacked support initially, but because she alienated so many over such a wide range. She lost the support of many even within her own supporters after the Sanders debacle, but kept right on as though nothing had happened. She chiseled her support below 50%, many polls said so, but she either wouldn't, or couldn't listen.

My cats are really happy today.

They are waiting for the flood of Democratic rats running out of Washington to arrive.

I think North Catalina will put up a wall to keep them out.

Now for the humorous side.... I was checking FaceBook and there is always those recommended articles that show up in the feed. First one I saw was an article titled "How to Move to Canada and Become a Canadian Citizen".... That had me about splitting my side laughing LOL

Have you seen the pictures of Trump character in the Simpsons in 2000 as President and equivalent photos of real Trump! it's spooky how the two are similar.

EDIT: apparently the cartoon is actually a spoof from this year, even so it's worth a look!

I find it very disquieting when someone decides they are going to control the people, as Hilary did.  
We have seen it before and it is never good. 
We have it up here at present.........Who elected the bafoons??  Nobody is letting on that they did!

I heard that Miley Cyrus, Amy Schummer et.al. who said they would move to  canada if Trump was elected will not be moving. The Canadian Government said that they are not welcome because Canada   has enough Snowflakes already.

If already having a nice day please disregard

Speaking of snowflakes.... Lots of professors at a bunch of colleges cancelled classes and postponed tests and quizzes yesterday so that they could "cope with the shock of the election". Welcome to the safe place, participation trophy generation.

I think some of the "we have college education so are more important" brigade have not understood the basic fact that the vote of a working class or homeless man is worth the same as there vote. 
What is impressive is how a billionaire was able to communicate and motivate the working class. That type of negociating skill's do not seem to have been recognised by the Clinton camp and that's probably part of why the lost. To be honest, it's going to fun watching how he gets on; just hoping he doesn't press the big RED buttonConfused

China has already sent a warning about protectionism on Trumps' part. This is going to be a serious paradigm shift type of time we will be living through and many parts of the world will be feeling it.
