What A Day!

So I almost gave up on NaBloPoMo. My usual blogging time is night but since D is away and grandparents go to sleep early, I am left alone to handle Keya. I am lagging by three posts I think..need to check.

Anyway, so what a day today, huh folks?? PM Modi created a storm with his announcement yesterday and today Donald Trump become President of USA. What were Americans smoking? Did it all come down to Hillary being a woman? Would Americans rather vote for a misogynist, nonsensical, absurd man than a woman? Shocking for THE top developed nation. In the first place, why were there no good candidates? Why people had to choose between fire and frying pan?

Let us see how Trump’s presidency proceeds. What walls and other ideas he comes up with.

As for our home ground, I am stuck with two 1000 rs notes. Can get deposited only after D returns. Thank goodness for online shopping options. But kudos to the PM for taking such a bold step.

  1. Well, like they say, this is proof that Americans don’t know “the rest of the world”. If they did, they’d have seen and heard all the alrm bells going off their hooks and not voted for him :P:P

    But well – the President Trump is a highly mellowed version of the Candidate Trump. It’s like a personality change. Wonder how long that will last, how true he will be to his words of being “tolerant” and wanting to make things better!

    • True!! Whatever his ideas are its actually impossible to put in practice…read a joke on that
      US Pres. first day at the Oval Office after being elected President.*
      First briefing by the CIA, Pentagon, FBI:
      US Pres.: We must destroy ISIS immediately. No delays.
      CIA: We cannot do that, sir. We created them along with Turkey, Saudi, Qatar and others.
      US Pres.: The Democrats created them.
      CIA: We created ISIS, sir. You need them or else you would lose funding from the natural gas lobby.
      US Pres.: Stop funding Pakistan. Let India deal with them.
      CIA: We can’t do that.
      Trump: Why is that?
      CIA: India will cut Balochistan out of Pak.
      US Pres.: I don’t care.
      CIA: India will have peace in Kashmir. They will stop buying our weapons. They will become a superpower. We have to fund Pakistan to keep India busy in Kashmir.
      US Pres.: But you have to destroy the Taliban.
      CIA: Sir, we can’t do that. We created the Taliban to keep Russia in check during the 80s. Now they are keeping Pakistan busy and away from their nukes.
      US Pres.: We have to destroy terror sponsoring regimes in the Middle East. Let us start with the Saudis.
      Pentagon: Sir, we can’t do that. We created those regimes because we wanted their oil. We can’t have democracy there, otherwise their people will get that oil – and we cannot let their people own it.
      US Pres.: Then, let us invade Iran.
      Pentagon: We cannot do that either, sir.
      US Pres.: Why not?
      CIA: We are talking to them, sir.
      US Pres.: What? Why?
      CIA: We want our Stealth Drones back. If we attack them, Russia will obliterate us as they did to our buddy ISIS in Syria. Besides we need Iran to keep Israel in check.
      US Pres.: Then let us invade Iraq again.
      CIA: Sir, our friends (ISIS) are already occupying 1/3rd of Iraq.
      US Pres.: Why not the whole of Iraq?
      CIA: We need the Shi’ite govt of Iraq to keep ISIS in check.
      US Pres.: I am banning Muslims from entering US.
      FBI: We can’t do that.
      US Pres.: Why not?
      FBI: Then our own population will become fearless.
      US Pres.: I am deporting all illegal immigrants to south of the border.
      Border patrol: You can’t do that, sir.
      US Pres.: Why not?
      Border patrol: If they’re gone, who will build the wall?
      US Pres.: I am banning H1B visas.
      USCIS: You cannot do that.
      US Pres.: Why?
      Chief of Staff: If you do so, we’ll have to outsource White House operations to Bangalore. Which is in India.
      US Pres. (sweating profusely by now): What the hell should I do as President???
      CIA: Enjoy the White House, sir! We will take care of the rest!

  2. YEah Tough decision BUT good one I personally feel.. All that money hidded under the mattresses should come out now .. I also hope MODI keeps his word and if found these people should be taxed and taken to court they been ripping the nation.. BUT i dont think that will happen..

    The Badal’s in punjab, the ambanis , the Gandhi’s probably have already got theirs exchanged 🙂 it will again be the Common man who probably had hid a few lakhs who will get caught out again ..
