If Elected President, Donald Trump Will Not Live In The White House

leave a comment »

Yeah. It can happen. And he says he says the White House needs a huge ballroom–built by his nibs, of course. But if so, will #Trump pay the contractors who build it?

July 19, 2016 RNC: Tonight’s Full Moon (conjunct US natal Pluto @27Capricorn) will spotlight the Trump Roll Call anointing as official Republican nominee:

The Trump hotels in Las Vegas, left, and Doral The Trump hotels in Las Vegas, left, and Doral

DES MOINES, Iowa (The Adobo Chronicles) – Since he launched his bid to be the Republican nominee for president of the United States, Donald Trump has made many promises, but nothing has caught the attention of the media and electorate more than what he said today in Iowa, on the eve of the first caucus of the 2016 presidential elections season.

If elected president of the United States, Trump says he will not live in the White House.

Instead, the billionaire candidate will establish his own White House outside of Washington, D.C. — as a matter of fact two of them : one in Florida and another in Nevada.  Trump’s White House (s) will be headquartered in the Trump hotels in Doral and Las Vegas.

“This will bring the White House — and the president — closer to the people,”…

Mercury’s Long Stay in Virgo? Here’s what to Do.

Mercurial insights from expert astrologer Donna Cunningham!

Sky Writer

©7-18-2016 by Donna Cunningham, MSW

            Something prompted me this morning to look for the next Mercury retrograde period, since I regularly plan much-needed projects to tackle during those intervals. I was surprised to discover that Mercury will be in Virgo this year for total of 42 days starting on July 30th. It goes retrograde on August 30th at 29° Virgo and turns direct at 15° Virgo on September 21st,  so it’s retrograde for 24 of the 42 days.

Would you think I was batty if I told you that that was the best news I’ve had all week?My regular readers know that I take the prevailing hysteria about Mercury Retrograde with a grain of salt—well, more like a whole shaker full of salt.  Too many people make these retrogrades sound like some terrifying boogie man, and I think they’re addicted to high drama.

Many  horror…

Fun with the Coels/Coils/Coles

Having a Genealogy party with Old King Cole!

stricklands' blog

Now if you have the surname Coel/Cole/Coil/Coyle/Cowell/Kyle and such in your lineage you have an ancient line of kings of Britain to have fun with and muse over, if you wish. Even the nursery rhyme “Old King Cole” appears among the ruins with King Coilus ruling Britain in Roman times and one of them (so long ago–who knows which one?) calling for his pipe and his bowl and his fiddlers three.

Actually, pipe and bowl are thought to be references to musical instruments since we’re talking so long ago that smoking wasn’t invented yet! How’s that for olden days?

Anyway, if you’ve never checked out the venerable olde Coel/Coil clan (or, gen) and its ancient history (actual or legendary), you may wish to try the following link no matter the multiple spelling variations of the name:

Cole-Coelus King of Britain

I Only Eat Six Foods

with one comment

Selective Food Disorder – is this you?

My Schrader Life

Yes, you did read that correctly. I only eat six foods.

  • Mcdonald’s French Fries (Literally only their French fries)
  • Peanut Butter Sandwich
  • Cereal
  • Waffles
  • Hot Pretzels
  • French Toast Sticks

Then of course I eat junk food like popcorn and ice cream but those are my main foods.

The look on your face while you are reading this is probably a “WTF?!” look. So let me explain.

When my parents switched their precious baby girl, me, to table foods I would gag at the touch of foods like hot dogs. So being first time parents my parents freaked out. They took me to all kinds of doctors and all said the same thing- “She will grow out of it.” Jokes on them. I am now 22 years old and look at me now. I still eat the same foods I always have.

It was not until I was a freshman in…

The Moon’s Nodes, Pluto, Fate and the UK’s Brexit….

with one comment

Astrology answers from Anne Whitaker!

Astrology: Questions and Answers

I have been having an interesting exchange on Facebook today, having Shared thislink, a Brexit post-mortem in which, in an open memo to the outgoing British Prime Minister David Cameron, former Canadian High Commissioner to the UK, Jeremy Kinsman, describes in detail just how badly the Remain campaign failed. My introductory comment was “This does not miss, at all!”

The link and my comment elicited quite a few interesting and well-informed responses. Astrologer Tony Dickey , ably illustrating the old cliche that a picture is worth a thousand words, had this to say in reply: Neither does this”. The picture below, in astrological terms, posted by Tony, certainly says it all:

Citizens United, Justice Kennedy, and Politics:

The Baseline Scenario

By James Kwak

I am, on paper, a corporate law professor, because—well, I guess because I used to work for a corporation (two, actually), and the books I write sometimes have corporations in them, and I teach business organizations as part of my day job. (Secret for those looking for a job as a law professor: UConn was looking for someone to teach corporate law, and I wanted the job, so that’s what I said I could do.) But I’ve made it this far writing exactly one corporate law paper (my summary here), and that was actually about corporate political activity—namely, whether and how shareholders can challenge political contributions that they think are not in the corporation’s interests.

It is well known by now that, in Citizens United, Justice Kennedy committed one of the true howlers of recent Supreme Court history:

With the advent of the Internet, prompt disclosure…
