Over here in the Kingdom of the realOranges, we follow the election drama in shock, but not in awe. Not the election process itself- this is US democracy, we understand how it works- but the flabbergasting fact of 2016 is what has boggled our mind. Even sadder and unwiser: that the Mafia Boss in the Bewitched House still gets support of 68000K voters. That must be a crushing reality for non-whites, for the sick and poor and yes, for anyone with a non-fake knowledge of the disaster of robber capitalism and the reign of Ali Baba and his Clan of Criminals.

I am a powerless Gutmensch over the sea, I cannot help you, dear friends, but you are in my thoughts. So much I hardly sleep. Get on with it, tar and feathers!
