Saigon December 17, 2016

 Some still flopping.
  Bun Bo Hue or what was left of it when I remembered to take a picture. $1.10
 Coca-Cola delivery man
 Cigarette delivery man.
 After coffee, off to the cock fight, I presume.

Chả giò 80 cents

Bánh Giò 70 cents

The coffee shop owner's daughter.  Speaks fluent English and instructs students at home in the evenings.
A breakfast Banh Mi Sandwich. This was excellent with two eggs 53 cents or with one 44.

Police paddy wagon.  I saw one the same day that actually had 'Police' instead of Cảnh sát?

 The 555 cigarette girl and her wares below. Vietnam

 Not sure if they are tearing it down or what.
Richard from England.  He stayed at this hotel for six months, went back to England for two and is back again as he was bored.  Keeps his cat in his room which is close to mine and never leaves these few blocks as he says it has everything he needs, much as I mentioned.  This area still has character that downtown has lost. A nice guy.

  Cháo, but like the Cambodian variety. Excellent as most everything is for that matter.
Well, at least it had a warning sign........! :)

Rượu đế comes in 140, 160 and 180 contrary to WIKI.  My mother-in-law would test to make sure I got 180 by sticking a chopstick into the bottle and if a match made it flame, then I didn't get cheated. :) 62 cents.

 Codeine 20 500mg $1.23.

Snack carts coming and going.

The War of Ideas

The quick update on the faithless elector issue is that it is not the "start" signal that it once seemed to be. The nuts and bolts of the agreement were unworkable for the Trump deniers. But, this is how the globalists work; they deny the will of the people, the vote, the Constitution, anything that gets in their way. They own the media and now have gone about setting up a "fact checking" organization designed to do nothing other than deny conservatives, or nationalists a voice in the public square. Sure, there are the websites like this one and WRSA, ZeroGov, etc., but how long before they are taken down for spreading "fake news" for offering opinions outside the "protected news" ideology?

Trump will have a say, of course, but giant media companies control information. Google owns Blogger. Blogger is easy and doesn't require a standalone web presence so many of us use it, but those days could come to an end. Then, the blogosphere will be fractured and who knows how long it will take to put the pieces back together, all on different platforms and what sort of leverage can the large media companies exert on Internet service providers? How many ISP's feel the same as they do and either through a willing cooperation or intimidation will enact the same sort of policies against blogs like this one?

Harry Reid Caught In $2 MILLION Bribery Scheme

Via Cousin John

The $2 million cashier’s check was drawn at a St. George bank Nov. 5, 2010.

From there, it was sent by FedEx to a Los Angeles attorney who represented Ireland-based Full Tilt Poker.

Made out to “Mail Media LTD” — a Full Tilt-owned entity used to launder online-gambling funds — the millions then were deposited at Basler Kantonalbank in Switzerland, where Mail Media had an account.

And from there, Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings is investigating whether it went into a Marshall Islands account in the name of Searchlight Holding Inc. to benefit, or even bribe, Harry Reid, the once-powerful majority leader of the U.S. Senate whom online poker companies had been courting to push a bill to legalize their gaming across the nation.

Russia to US: Prove election interference claims or shut up

Via Billy

Moscow has doubled down on its dismissal of U.S. accusations that the Kremlin interfered in the presidential election to help Donald Trump win the White House.

"They should either stop talking about that or produce some proof at last," said Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov, as reported by Tass news agency on Friday. "Otherwise it all begins to look unseemly."

According to Tass, Putin's spokesman said it was indecent for the U.S. to groundlessly accuse Russia of interfering in the election process.
