I sat with my father and his partner and his cousin and contemporaries over Xmas in QLD and here were their taking points:

... it is the fault of the โ€œgreeniesโ€ and all fires were lit by arsonists ..
2. Donald Trump โ€œis a great Presidentโ€ and โ€œhas really improved the economy of the USA,โ€ Sanders will be wiped off the floor and he will win a โ€œlandslideโ€ in 2020. I think the saddest thing about this..
... is that my father is a well travelled relatively well educated in the school of life kind of bloke. He has travelled around the world more times than I have had glasses of rose. But he represents quintessentially the #okboomer backlash. He and his cronies watch #credlin ...

So I was watching Netflix during the weekend about the uninvited guests Michaele and Tareq Salahi in 2009 and I got to thinking... the furore about these two individuals sneaking into a State Dinner and the failure of the White House security services and the blowback on ......
