Surviving the US Election

Post by Chambo Off To Work We Go on Wed Oct 26, 2016 9:03 am

This could be somewhat worrying, but I will be in NYC when the US election takes place on November 8.
Not by choice - just circumstance of timing.

Everyone tells me that is really exciting. Me, I am not so sure.
Looking for interesting tips on how to survive the frenzy! Very Happy

NYC
I was there in 1981 for a fair while
Catch the train in and walk the city , a great experience

Chambo
Watch out if the card sharks are still about
They would show you one of 3 cards
They would rotate 3 cards on a table and ask you to pick out that card - and bet against them
They were too good for me
Playing against these dudes in the back alleys of NYC is not recommended
Losing back then means I get to post about it 35 years later

Thanks, I am no card player so will steer clear of them.

Maybe a hounds tooth jacket could help with the Woody Allen look.
Cap, Bad hair, coke bottle glasses may help too.

Yep going there too. Not to the top. You gotta book that months in advance. But should get to lick her feet.

If Trump wins I'd be booking an emergency flight home pronto, and maybe even seeking refuge at the Australian consulate/embassy.

They have a confectionary that is peanut butter in chocolate. Avoid at all costs as it is the most sickening thing I have eaten.

That raises an interesting angle.

Check. I am sure it will be but one of an infinite number of supersized things to avoid.
Although they do say some of the street vendor food in New York isn't bad.

If crooked Hillary wins the election, which would be rigged if she does, I’d get the hell out of Dodge as the Republicans will come out with all 'guns a blazin'. It will be a civil war.

the first time i ever heard the name Donald Trump was at one of the early wrestlemanias' where they held it at the Trump Plaza 2 years in a row & Gorilla Monsoon says ''there's Donald Trump sitting front row, he'd be a hulkamaniac'' Jesse ''the body'' Ventura replies ''yeah sure he is'' or words to that effect saying he wouldn't be

I was trying to think of a football equivalent to what the Americans have done, i.e. replace Barak Obama with Donald Trump. The best I can think of is that it would be like Western Bulldogs supporters thrwoing out Luke Beveridge and instating Sam Newman as senior coach.

Well only got to the 86th floor.
Decided not to join Kong at the top.
That would have cost another $20

Not a Premiership Shirt, but rode around Central Park with my SFC top on. Does that count?

Back safe! Survived the US election.

Was walking along 5th Avenue when the Democrat protesters marched to the Trump Tower.
There were 6 large D(Tr)ump Trucks lining the pavement outside the building acting as a security barrier if someone wanted to throw in a Molotov Cocktail or something. Cops everywhere including some carrying automatic weapons.

Probably be a case of watch out for radical Democrats now.

It is very very odd the way the American politics carries on.
There is almost not an economic policy in sight.
It all about trash the crap out of your opponent for whatever sniff of a reason you can find.
How these accusations are not considered slanderous is beyond me.

I think the US has made a rod for its own back that will come back to haunt it in the reasonably short term.

Interestingly, one lady who helped us out with directions on the Subway in NYC, was a Democrat volunteer.
She said even in a Democrat town like NY, Hillary was not well liked. But there was no way she was going to vote for Trump.
"An evil man" she called him.

When you analyse how this all went it just about boils down to the bigger cities being Democrat (with their larger number of electoral college votes) and rural America being Republican. The swings toward Trump in the marginal to safe divisions made the difference.

The US dollar has dropped 4c in the 2 weeks since the election.

Turbulent times ahead..........

I think it would be more like Mark Jackson or Robert Muir.
The difference is bigger than the Beveridge/Newman disparity.
