Where are we again?

                                        (baby Noodle archives)

I've often heard people say that they voted for Donald Trump because they wanted to shake things up.

Well, congratulations you've succeeded.

But could you please get him to stop shaking things up now!

Because no matter what started out as shaking things up, has now lead to just plain broken.

And now, I do not recognize this place where I live anymore.

Our president just spent over two hours ALONE with Vladimir Putin.

We may never know what was said.

Now we learn that Putin has been invited to the White House in a few months.

Every morning I wake and wonder what's next....

I used to be sure we were the country that said, "give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free".

I was sure we were a country of the first amendment  and that, that included everyone.

I was sure we were a country that believed in separation of church and state.

I was sure we were a country who professed "all men are created equal".

I was sure we were a country who believed in freedom of the press. Where journalists were not targeted, bullied and threatened
A country where we had the right to peaceful protest.

A country where we had freedom of religion, ANY RELIGION.

Mostly I was sure we were a country where no one was above the law, NO ONE.

A country who's commander in chief would never disregard and slander our most staunch allies.

And most importantly, I was sure we were a country who would elect a president that would defend our own country over adversarial countries like Russia!

And under NO circumstances hand over American citizen's to a hostile adversary!

No, I do not recognize this place where I live anymore.

Do you?

Have a peaceful weekend...

Noodle and crew


  1. No, I don't. But that's a great photo. Please look into this doctor in Florida, Mike Sevigny. I am sending him his very small contribution because ANY member of Congress who is a reformed Republican turned Democrat is okay by me. It's a start. He is really something!!! Take a look and would love your view.

    Well, Noodle, I can't comment from the p.o.v. of living in the USA, because I don't. However, TROTW is not immune to the goings-on, not least here in the UK. You'll have seen how that went down... or up... I do know that those who wanted 'to shake things up' have a chance to make amends soon enough. Just hope they do! Try to have a cheerful weekend dear one. Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Not my favorite President. A legend in his own mind.

  4. Besides all of those things, it would really be nice to have a president who didn't constantly LIE about everything! In other news: Noodle, this is a most adorable baby picture! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  5. I can plainly see Noodle has a very concerned look on his face! Need to chill out this weekend. There will be plenty of new bad news on Monday to worry about!

  6. We've would have preferred stirred...not shaken. ;)

  7. I agree with the cats above. What happened to "better dead than red"?

  8. Things are well shaken up since we got Trump for President. Who know what was said between Trump and Putin. Scarey and I wonder what was send to Russian submarine that was sitting off our coast when Trump first taken office.
    I'll shut up...Coffee is on

  9. I love this baby Noodle photo. Shake things up reminds me of a snow globe being shaken, I guess that aptly describes it.
