Frightening [Nov. 26th, 2016|12:25 pm]
Tony Grist
I'm so tired of being told these are frightening times.

I lived through the Cold War. Now those were frightening times.

Or not.

Every generation thinks it lives in frightening times. What that means is it doesn't feel entirely in control.

What's the worst that can happen? We all die. Well that's going to happen no matter what. Get used to it.

Don't let the media scare you.  Remember they make their money by creeping up behind your chair and going, "Boo!"

There's more to life than politics.

Come off that news site.  Take a walk. Annoy the cat. Have a nice cup of tea.

This part of society just pre-emptively declared themselves as victims which put the other part of society into a role of menace. Very good point for them to advocate everything what they say and do.

Ps: Why do you think that his taste in interior is bad? Baroque was a good style for centuries, he is just an old-fashioned man. :)

I'm not a big fan of the baroque- especially not in a domestic setting. I hate Versailles.

Versailles is French classicism

Classicism and the baroque bleed into one another.

White House, US Capitol are both built in classical style. And US Supreme Court (Temple of Justice) is some sort of Parthenon too.

Anyway Trump promised to do not change interiors.

I don't think they'd let him do anything too radical to The White House.

Who are "they"? The Illuminati world shadow government or reptiloids?

I guess Mr. Trump just respects his Country and its symbols like every American patriot, without any hypothetical "they" telling him to do so.

Good question.

If it we were talking about Britain the White House would be a Grade I Listed building- and that would mean that any projected change would have to go before a civil service committee and every change that was approved would have to be executed to the highest standards.

I imagine the USA has some similar system for protecting its historic and architecturally significant buildings

The White House was several times rebuilt and expanded in modern times, even up to this stage when it was necessary.

Also every president and his wife redecorated interiors according to their taste and not only their private quarters but the historical part also. I don't think Trump can do something terrible to this place. I guess he will leave this redecoration to his wife while he will be dealing with the rest of the US. And his wife is very stylish person with some design education.

Your picture makes it look as if they completely gutted it.

President Truman had to do this otherwise building would have collapsed.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_House_Reconstruction And here we're not talking about other presidents who added some additional parts and wings to the initial design when they thought they needed it.
