Coffee Flavored Whipped Cream

I found this recipe while surfing a news app. I have made it a couple of times and it is tasty in coffee and supposedly as cake frosting or sandwiched between two cookies. I have only used it in coffee.

Ingredients:

16 ounces of whipping cream

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 teaspoons of instant coffee (I used Folgers classic roast instant)

Directions:

Using a metal bowl (place in freezer for 15 minutes along with handheld mixer beaters), combine all ingredients and beat until you have stiff peaks. I didn’t have a metal bowl. Only plastic or glass on hand. I placed my glass bowl in the refrigerator for a couple of days and placed the beaters in the freezer. Comes out great. Sometimes we have to improvise.

Spoon into coffee as creamer. Lasts 3 days in the fridge.

Why Trump is Responsible.

Donald Trump would like people to believe that he has done his best for the American populace during these extremely trying times. The outbreak of Covid-19 in this country is completely 100% Donald Trump’s fault. He is so interested in getting re-elected to office to allow the statute of limitations to run out on some of the lawsuits that he has held up with litigation, that he is like a cornered animal.

Trump is lashing out at everyone who speaks any facts about a virus that has caused a pandemic. He has become unhinged and wants very much to bury the facts that he was informed about the virus before it was wreaking havoc on our shores. He disregarded the warnings from the previous administration and dismantled the department that was formed to leap into action if the U.S. were to face this type of situation.

Trump does his form of leadership without rhyme or reason and the American people are caught in the middle. He has spent all of his time trying to divide the people of this country by pitting their opinions against each other. Since he does not utilize facts, the only thing that is left would be opinions. The truth is what is needed most at a time when the country looks for answers from their leaders and we are stuck with a pathological liar in the Oval Office.

The main problem with Trump are the loyalists that stand by him. People that are supposed college graduates that are incapable of seeing the madness going on right in front of them. Or can they see the madness and are planning on writing their book about the ordeal of working for the idiot president? Anyone that is in that administration and waits until they leave to do the right thing by speaking out about this imbecilic attitude towards dealing with an issue that has killed more that 75 thousand citizens, can expect to lose money when it comes to book sales. Bring out your books, for they will never be owned by me and I’m sure many more people that will have nothing but anger for the person that wants to capitalize on a bad situation that they let continue.

This guy isn’t screwing up a company that makes colored paper by changing paper sizes and item count in the reams, he is destroying a country. Trump is responsible for destroying our relationship with allies. He is responsible for ignoring Intel about a pandemic and trying to make money off of the citizens during their time of need. He is responsible for the biggest stock market decline of all time. Trump is responsible for the uptick in racially motivated violence in this country and is the first president to use the white power sign every time he is in front of a crowd of people. Trump is destroying democracy as we know it by ignoring the Constitution that he took an oath to uphold.

I do believe that the American people will come out okay on the other side of this horrible position that Donald Trump has placed us in, but this could have all been avoided if the Republican Party cared about anything but robbing the people of this country of their tax dollars and not keeping the promises that they made to get the votes needed to obtain the offices that they hold. To want to win an election so bad that an organization would subject an entire nation to someone that is obviously unstable in the position of presidency, is unconscionable. I hope that others in the nation realize that the Republican Party under Trump does not have their best interests at heart.

Trump denies us the facts from health professionals because the news is not all roses and won’t help his campaign efforts. What will it take for this man to understand that it’s time to step from behind the curtain trying to puppet the emotions of the people to benefit himself as a supposed victim? Many of us realize that he is the one to blame for this cluster-fuck of crisis management and he will never live it down. I hope the civil suits filed against him for the death of loved ones will bankrupt him and his family because they were nothing but enablers.

I now need yet another drink and hope my brain will turn off long enough for me to get some rest. Only problem is I will wake up and Trump will still be in office and there will be another day of insane news where I stand holding my coffee cup and wondering WTF?!

How Did America Lose It’s Way?

February 11, 2020 Leave a comment

Many Americans voted for Trump, but not as many Americans that voted for Hillary Clinton. Our election and our right to choose the person that we actually wanted to lead us, was stolen from us. We had a foreign government interfere with our election and a man that was supposed to repay his personal debt to a foreign dignitary that wanted to access new countries and needed sanctions lifted, in order to do so; take control of our country.

Donald Trump was unaware that his plan to use his SuperPac money to pay back a former KGB agent would go well, but he underestimated a man that is a million times smarter than he is. We have been dealing with his insanity for 3 years now and an election is coming; will America let us down?

Vladimir Putin wants to cripple the United States and he has enlisted a buffoon that feels just fine with allowing the American people to think that he is on their side, as he destroys our relations around the globe, destroys the reputation of our military and disregards our U.S. Constitution. Trump is not a patriot and does not care about the country, its inhabitants or its history. Those that believe that Trump cares are grossly misinformed and are not paying attention to what is going on in this society.

White Supremacists actually believe that they are justified in doing heinous crimes against society because our president places dog whistle statements into his speeches at his not needed rallies; as he calls his followers to arms.

When this November comes around we must get out and vote to tip the scales of justice in our favor. Trump must not have another 4 years to destroy this country any further. The destruction of Native American Burial Grounds is the last straw for me. This man must not be left to succeed at his insidious plan to destroy our Democracy. #VoteBlueNoMatterWho

Should We Impeach Trump?

October 29, 2019 Leave a comment

Well, the obvious answer is yes. Trump has done so many things as President that could definitely be considered questionable prior to even becoming President. The Ukraine call was the last straw for Congress, because Trump is now threatening the security of this nation. Then again his friendships with Russian, Korean and Saudi hierarchy should definitely be considered a threat to national security, since Trump keeps us in the dark about what issues were discussed by archiving conversations before anyone has a chance to listen to them. Trump wants desperately to be one of the bad boys.

Trump has done everything to ruin the reputation of America and so many of his followers don’t want to admit it. Look, we understand that people voted for him and we just want our fellow citizens to realize that it was a wrong move to accept him as a candidate. This man has absolutely no respect for anyone. He has made it evident that he looks down on women, immigrants and low income people, time and time again. He insults leaders of other countries as if he is having a contest of disparaging remarks made by grownups; unfortunately most times he is the only one playing.

On the campaign trail, Trump was insensitive and downright cruel to his opponents and has showed Americans that he is a Nationalist, with his inability to speak against Hate Groups and the constant White Power sign that he throws up everywhere he goes. Trump lied to the auto workers, the coal miners and the farmers, just to get their votes and could care less that these voters are suffering from him turning his back on them. He spoke in a state that manufactures automobiles for foreign carmakers and said he would tax the imports, but actually screwed everyone down to the craft beer manufacturers with his tariffs on steel.

Once in office, Trump set forth on a path of destroying Democracy and brutally attacked anyone that exercised freedom of speech. With the attack on journalists, I personally cannot trust this President. He wants one news channel to spew his propaganda and the American people after living with freedom of speech; should accept this complete and utter nonsense that would strip us of our primary right?

Trump rips every program available that is in place to help low income people and wants to strip women of power by using his tired method of demeaning those who are obviously more intelligent than he is. Let’s not forget that this President is a self-proclaimed sexual predator. This we know from the infamous, “Grab them by the P***y!”, statement.

Now I listen to a President send his cronies to request the identity of the “Whistleblower” in the basis of his impeachment investigation; as if this is in any way acceptable when Trump has been accused in a round about way of witness tampering in the past.

The President of this country has decided to represent the American people as a thug that wants payment for an offer of security for one’s establishment; when the only one you need to be made safe from would be him.

Maybe after going out to a ballgame and having a stadium full of people chant, “Lock Him Up!”; he will realize that the American people believe him to be the criminal that he has represented himself to be?

I do doubt he realizes anything because he also stated information regarding the final moments of Baghdadi’s life that he could not possible ascertain from the footage of the raid. Only someone that isn’t with it, would embellish the death of the head of a criminal enterprise; unless you want to tick off his loyal colleagues?! What color is the sky in Trumps’ mind?

Please impeach him and remove him from office with all the people he placed in positions that they were not in any way suited to handle, i.e. Devos, Carson, Barr, etc…

Time for Wine. If Trump is in office for another year, I may have to switch to light beer…I have a liver to consider.

When Will Trump’s Shit Show End?

I have finally gone over the edge with this guy. Can he not just say, “I am definitely no criminal mastermind and should just resign myself to the fact that I am going to jail. Once I am out of the presidency, that’s where I’m going.” It would be better for him to just resign, but we all know that Trump is not about to go out without destroying us a bit more, since there is no pomp and pageantry with resignation. That was definitely proven with Nixon and now Trump is going to go the same way. Just like Nixon, Trump knows he’s guilty, but somehow believes he is above the law.

I wake up in the morning and think about the fact that when I read that first headline, the headache will return. I have never taken so much acetaminophen in my life! This guy is draining my life force. Trump has made me lose faith in the government completely. I was on the brink for a lot of years, but Trump and McConnell just pushed me over the side. The fact that so many Americans still think this guy has it going on has me totally flabbergasted. That’s right, I used the word flabbergasted. When did that freaking word ever suit anything in your life?

There are people that have predicted presidential elections correctly for years and they are saying that Trump could win in 2020. On that night many people will be putting guns to their heads, because no one wants to go through another 4 years of the sitting imbecile! The day following the election thousands of homes will go on the market and resumes will go out to foreign countries. Time to move on a work visa and come back after the siege is over, if there is anything worth coming back to.

Trump has proven that he lacks integrity, intelligence and diplomacy. What more do people need before they say, “Enough is enough!”, for goodness sake! This guy in our Oval Office is stocking Arabs with weapons, politicizing our troops, manipulating Pastors into endorsing him, provoking Iran into war, flip flops on 97% of everything he says. The only thing that has become Trumps’ mantra is that he wants to build a wall. I think he doesn’t want Americans to escape. A lot of terrorist come in through our northern border, but hey…let’s build a wall across the southern border. As if this will keep out excellent tunnel builders? Plus there hasn’t been a problem at the border for so long, that this whole wall nonsense just baffles the mind. I say that expression a lot now also, since the orange one has been in office. Baffles the freaking mind!

When I have to deal with a day of Trump’s mental collapse for our viewing pleasure, then have to make a decision between wine, beer or Tylenol when I get home; well, shit just got real! The Republican Party has lost any respect I may have had for it, since they have continuously chosen to back a complete and utter narcissistic being (can’t say human) to run this country; when they know in their hearts that this man needs help. Trump just needs someone to bring him McDonald’s and chocolate cake which he will wash down with a Coke; and I bet he’ll be happy.

We could build him a fake Oval Office, so that he can play president anytime he wants to. He can make pretend calls to his pals Putin and Kim while stuffing his face with Big Macs and fries. Trump will be happy and the country would be safe. I just don’t know how to fake the Air Force One portion of this plan…hmmm?!

All I can say at this time is that I want him to get out of the U.K., without totally embarrassing America. He already started with his comments about Meghan Markle, now known as The Duchess of Sussex; who he thinks is nasty, but he didn’t say that…only he did. Trump’s comments on Meghan were prior to getting there…so on with the shit show!

Why is the world being forced to have Alexa and Bixby?

November 21, 2018 Leave a comment

I hate the fact that so many items now are forcing you to have Alexa or Bixby. We are always being forced into using someone’s bright new idea. Why should I have a device in my house that is always listening? I have a remote for my TV and that is convenient enough. I don’t want to tell Alexa to turn on the TV or find music for me, let alone answer queries that I could just go over to my laptop, phone or iPad and Google myself. Are we really just that lazy that we can’t do things ourselves anymore?

I could see if I were in a disabled condition and needed these items to make my connection to the outside world a bit easier for me. Then there is the case of my being older and unable to move around well, which I can say this type of software would be helpful. I can get up and walk around just fine, so Alexa is not at all needed in my home. I don’t want it to come pre-installed on my phone, TV or any other appliance that I may purchase. We don’t seem to get a choice anymore because someone out there in marketing and R&D, thinks we need and want this.

I had an item called a Sony Dash. It was a wonderful item, that Sony decided it didn’t want to support any longer. It was an alarm clock, streamed Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, and so many other streaming services. I could surf the net, check my email and even use a USB port to show pictures from my computer in continuous stream. There was a place to plug my headphones into, if I didn’t want to disturb my husband while I watched a show at night. People placed apps out online for the device that I scrolled all day long, which showed me the market square in Germany, the pyramids in Egypt and other sites around the globe, plus fun facts and headlines. The alarm clock feature allowed me to set a different time for the alarm to sound everyday of the week and a multitude of alarm sounds to choose from. I loved the device and Amazon’s Echo doesn’t compare, nor do I want it in my house.

Now I can’t even go out and buy a sound bar for my TV, without having to deal with Alexa being built in. This is not a great selling point to me and I don’t want the feature, but I’m being forced to, just as we were forced into buying DVD’s and then Blu-Ray Discs. Everyone isn’t a fan of this technology, but as usual, we are forced to buy items that include this software; whether we want it to not. In some cases, we are told that the software can be turned off, but if they send through an update while you are sleeping, you can bet that software is up and running. I don’t want TV’s that take pictures of me in my living room or bedroom and I don’t want Alexa or Bixby around to answer questions for me or start things up.

Now since you have to train these devices to recognize your voice, what happens if you have a really bad cold or laryngitis? Does it mean you can’t answer the door or turn on the lights; let alone listen to music or watch TV? I’m confused about that one and actually at this moment since I still have a choice of not having products with this capability in my home, I dread anything breaking down; which will force me to purchase this technology. Life is stressful in the 21st Century with corporations requiring you to follow their lead and I have to admit, some times they want me to take a trip to where I don’t want to go.

Had to get this off my chest. No wine tonight, this calls for Beer!
