Happy Holidays-Try Tiffany this Christmas

Happy Holidays-Try Tiffany this Christmas

Readers, do you want to really impress your spouse or “significant other” this year?  Have you been wracking your brain trying to think of something to give him or her for Christmas this year?  Are your gift ideas just not making it?  Well, try something from Tiffany.  That distinctive blue box under the tree will excite just about anyone, especially if they are not expecting it.

You say, “Tiffany is way too expensive for me”, or “I’m reluctant to even walk into a Tiffany store past those intimidating guards”.  Let me disabuse you of those notions.  Tiffany sells many products that are within the budget of most people.  Did you know, Tiffany sells a line of home goods, including glassware, barware, and even chopsticks?  Yes, chopsticks! I actually bought my husband a pair of their solid-walnut chopsticks, with a sterling silver end piece that I had monogrammed with his initials.  Very cool!

Get a load of this, just for those who live in cities where plastic straws are banned.  It’s a sterling silver “Crazy Straw”.

About those door guards…  They are just human beings, and you should not be intimidated by them.  Just think of yourself as a Customer, and like any other retailer, Tiffany loves customers, especially new customers.  So get up your courage, and walk right in, being sure to greet the guard with a smile and a hearty “Good Afternoon”.  Then, just go around and look in all the display cases, and find something that your honey will like.

Tiffany has a huge selection of sterling silver jewelry and accessories that are very affordable.  When I was single and living on a shoestring, I saved up all year to go to Tiffany and treat myself to a pair of sterling earrings.  They come out with new styles all year long, so you should be able to find something in your price range.  And from long experience, I can tell you that Tiffany salespeople understand if you are on a limited budget, so tell them what your price range is, and they will come up with something wonderful.

So, Try Tiffany this holiday season.  You won’t regret it, and your Sweetie will be delighted.  I guarantee it!

Did you vote Democrat on Tuesday?

You did?  This is what you voted for.

Antifa-TuckerCarlson

Protest-AjitPai

Protesters outside the home of Ajit Pai, the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.  Mr. Pai has a wife and children, who were frightened by the angry people shouting outside their home.  They had to go into hiding.

This is what Antifa promises people who do not agree with them.

Antifa-2

This is who they are.  These people are not supporters of conservatives.

mob

Democrat supporters prefer mob rule.  Anyone who disagrees with them is liable to have a mob on his front lawn, or outside his office, screaming and threatening violence.

If you voted Democrat on Tuesday, this whom you voted for.  Be very careful out there.  One wrong word to the wrong person could lead to these people forming up outside YOUR front door, demanding blood.  Your livelihood may be threatened, your family might be in danger, if you get on the wrong side of the Liberal Mob.

The Voters of the State of Washington Double Down on Democrat Destruction

May I add my disgust at the results of yesterday’s election.  I am ashamed to be a resident of the state where the voters vote themselves higher taxes, boondoggle projects that waste their dollars (choo-choo train that 1% of the population will ride), essentially disarm their police (after I 940 passes with 60% support, police will be regulated to death and almost have to ask the criminal’s permission to respond with deadly force-the initiative Curbs Police Violence!!); disarm themselves with gun regulations (I 1639 adds more onerous regulation of legal firearms owned by law-abiding citizens, thus reducing every citizen’s ability to defend himself from the increasing crime, especially in cities); and make all the more certain that more ineffective social programs are coming.

The voters of WA sent an abortion-supporting Pediatrician(!) to Congress, turning Blue a district that has been Red for many years; voted down their loudest voice in the State House against the predations of un-Sound Transit (I wish Mark Harmsworth much luck and prosperity in the rest of his life, and mourn that I do not live in his district), and sent even more D’s to the state legislature. [And the Board of un-Sound Transit is about to give the Capo di Tutti Capi a big raise-on MY DIME].  I always knew my own district was a lost cause (the ass with the perpetual sneer who is NOT my “representative” in Congress received 72% of the vote) and the entire state is even a bigger lost cause now.  Of the ten WA congressional districts, seven are now represented by Democrats.

As expected, the citizens of Seattle voted themselves another huge “families and education levy” that will not improve either families or education (throwing money at problems never solves them).  But then, the liberals who tax themselves to death do not CARE whether they have any effect whatsoever; they just feel so good that they are helping (which they do not).

State voters did do a couple of good things.  They emphatically rejected yet another “carbon fee”, which we recognize is really a Carbon Tax, and they made illegal the banning or taxing of particular food products by local jurisdictions (here’s looking at you, Seattle Sweetened Beverage Tax).

Well, the citizens of the State of Washington get exactly the government they elect.  I just wish I didn’t have to live with what the Democ-Rats vote for.

Since When do Invasion Forces have “Constitutional Rights”?!

Migrants traveling to the US (see post below) have the audacity to File a Lawsuit against the Trump Administration for violating their Constitutional Rights! What?  Say again?  This ridiculous suit should be thrown out immediately.  Can you say “no standing to sue”?

And then, there’s this.

Migrant Caravans swell to 10,000, get some help along the way!  No, those hordes of “migrants” aren’t all trudging along in the heat and humidity on their way to “asylum” in the United States.  They are being Organized, and Carried part of the way in vehicles.

CaraVehicle

Funny, why does it look like the majority of these migrants are young men?  Hmmmm?

This is NOT. A. CARAVAN.

This is a slow-motion Invasion of the United States of America by a mob of so-called “migrants”, egged on and financed by George Soros.

President Donald Trump is completely correct in vowing not to let this invasion force enter US Territory.  No one has the right to enter our country without our consent.  EVER.  No matter what horrible conditions they are fleeing in their own country, they are not welcome to literally break down our doors and invade our sovereign nation.

Our President has every right, as Chief Executive of the US, and Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces, to move as many troops as he wishes to our southern border, to stop this Invasion in its tracks.  No Federal or other judge has the right to second-guess President Trump in his command of our armed forces and Border Patrol.  It is his JOB to protect our country.

Annals of “Liberals Destroy Everything They Touch”, Seattle Edition

Annals of “Liberals Destroy Everything They Touch”, Seattle Edition

These are just a few of the stories at the top of the KOMO News site this morning.  Every single story shows how the radicals running local government have destroyed everything they touch.

The City of Seattle encourages (does not punish) public drug use, especially in and around the burgeoning homeless encampments.

Seattle police Officer Pricked by Used Needle in Seattle Park

Also related to the drug scene around Seattle, evidence that there is no plan to decrease the use of illegal drugs in the city.

Public Libraries and YMCAs to get Narcan(r) to Prevent Opioid Overdoses

And Seattle/King County does have enabling legislation to allow “Safe Injection Sites”, where illegal-drug addicts can “shoot up”, supervised by nurses.  They just can’t seem to find the ideal site, so none has opened up yet.  I have read that they are considering “mobile” drug dens, so no permanent site will be necessary.  I can just see the ads now:  “Hey, Burien Drug Addicts!  Meet your Mobile Drug Den at Fourth and Highway 900, Monday at 3:00PM”.

North Seattle Shooting Marks Five-Year High in Homicides in North Precinct, City Says.

And Seattle has passed the most restrictive gun-storage laws in recent memory, essentially requiring legal gun owners to lock up their firearms where they cannot be obtained by anyone easily (especially the homeowner with the burglar or rapist at the door).  Yeah, buy that gun for self-defense, and we will mandate that it be unavailable to you when you need it most.

Sound Transit: Replacing Broken Escalators at UW Station to Cost More than $20 Million

Everyone in the Seattle-Everett-Tacoma area is paying through the nose (car-tab tax, property tax, sales tax) for this useless Choo-Choo Train that 1% of the population will ride.  Everyone has heard of the huge (predicted) cost-overruns associated with this boondoggle, and this is one of the most egregious.  It seems that they need very long escalators to carry riders from the street down to the underground train station by the University of Washington.  The radicals who run (?) un-Sound Transit ordered “commercial-grade” escalators instead of “transit-grade” escalators, probably to save costs.  Yeah, big savings!  Not only are transit riders inconvenienced by having to walk up and down hundreds of stairs to get to and from the train, but NO costs were saved, and more costs will now have to be incurred! On MY dime!

Police: Car Thefts up From a Year Ago in Seattle

Seattle police have essentially stopped responding to most property crimes in the city.  Is it any wonder that we try our best to stay the hell out of Seattle?  The city is almost literally going to hell in a hand basket.  I Despise Seattle, and I feel sorry for those who live there.  However, they do get the government they elect, don’t they?  Maybe I shouldn’t feel too sorry for them after all.

This is really weird!

Just this week, at work we found out that our profit-sharing payout, based on last fiscal year’s performance, is going to be a nice percentage of our total salary.  It got me to thinking about salary, and how mine has increased quite a bit this year.  In January, in connection with my promotion, I received a 6% increase.  In the ten years I’ve worked for my company, I have never had a promotion, and my biggest increase was about 2%, so that 6% was pretty amazing.

Then, about three months ago, my boss called me in, and told me that I was getting an additional 7% raise, totally out of the blue.  I was flabbergasted, and very grateful.  And lately, I have been thinking something that I have never, ever thought before.  I said to myself, “I am earning enough”.  Yes, hard to believe, I am now, after about 25 years of purchasing experience in a number of industries from health care to aerospace, I am getting paid what I think I’m worth.  This is astonishing to me! This is about how I feel.

showered with money

I have told my husband before,  that I basically have everything I need to lead a full life.  Husband, fully-paid-for house, fully-paid-for car (10 years old), good job (getting better!), friends, and family, and a gorgeous black cat.  There’s really nothing more I need.  We both have enough vacation time saved up that we can take whatever vacation we want to.

I know that it’s bad form to tell your employer that you don’t need any more raises, and I won’t mention it.  But when review time comes around in the next month or so, I’ll be treating any raise I receive as “gravy”, or the cherry on top of the milkshake; something I will like but really don’t need.

As I said before, this is WEIRD!
