At the Sign of Triumph

No, this isn’t about the recent election results, though I have to admit I’m still cackling about that.

I’m reading the latest offering in the Safehold series.

At the Sign of Triumph

Anyone else out there a fan of this series?

  1. The series amplified all of Weber’s worst tendencies. May we hope that it’s over now?

    And why would anyone cackle over that disaster of an election? I hear that Sarah Palin is being considered for Secretary of the Interior.

    Sure, just as soon as the Gbaba are defeated. Shouldn’t take more than another 15 or 20 books given Weber’s glacial pacing.

  3. Trump’s trust may not be blind, but his supporters are.

    I hope it’s clear from the transition team choices that Wall Street has nothing whatever to fear from this nitwit. Dodd-Frank will be ripped up and there will be nothing that replaces it. Goldman-Sachs will be quite safe.

    Whether or not any of this will be “good for the country” (since keeping his promises obviously would not be), it will do nothing for the basket of unhappies who thought the messiah had finally come for them.

    The protests horrify me. Nobody should give the dictator-elect any excuse for declaring martial law. It’s fine to hold signs indicating that one still cares about, e.g., transgender rights, the environment, or women’s right to choose. Of course, it’s important to register that the electorate is still there and will be vigilant. But anything like violence not only invites something awful, it also makes the non-Trump supporters look exactly the way the Trump supporters were predicted to look if they had lost. All the talk about peaceful transition of power being threatened by a Trump loss, blah blah. This stuff is all in Gandhi and MLK.

    BTW, nobody should expect Trump to ever show his taxes. Any government transparency that has been won over the last 50 years is gone. (I love, though, that transition team is checking possible appointees for conflicts of interest. Ha ha ha.)

  4. Flint: Sure, just as soon as the Gbaba are defeated. Shouldn’t take more than another 15 or 20 books given Weber’s glacial pacing.
