So, he has opted to move his ‘base’ & TWEETS to Tiktok. That it is ALL video suits him even better.
The Chinese are DELIGHTED. Best thing that has happened to them. They have welcomed him with OPEN ARMS. As I write they are busily scaling up their platforms for the INCREASE in traffic. They are also, already, talking about a U.S. stock offerings. WOW. I will certainly buy some.
I used to own Twitter a few years ago. But, I haven’t for ages. So, I do not care.
I do NOT have a Tiktok account.
This afternoon a LIBRARIAN, yes, a librarian told me that she could NOT find my e-mail online!
Sacré bloody bleu!
I was MORTIFIED.
Google my name.
But, yes, it is TRUE that my e-mail is NOT that obvious. So, I am trying to fix that.
No, I am NOT worried about publicizing my e-mail.
I have had this e-mail, unchanged for over 22-years. Most people have it. Plus, I have some rather effective spam filters and e-mail blockers.
So, again. Anura Guruge e-mail: email@example.com.

Donald Trump In His Diwali Tweet Gets The List Of Celebrants Mangled; 96% Of Buddhists DO NOT Celebrate Diwali!
They must have looked it up on Wikipedia — because they got the list HORRIBLY wrong!
Diwali, as most people do know, is first and foremost a HINDU celebration. A very special holiday for them.
So, in any list re. Diwali, Hindus need to come first ….
Having the list starting with Buddhists is a JOKE.
Only a very small, Nepal-specific subset of Buddhists celebrate Diwali.
96%, if not 98%, of Buddhists do NOT celebrate Diwali.
This was a REALLY STUPID Tweet — even by Donald Trump standards.
Yes, there was a 2nd Tweet that tried to rectify matters by mentioning the Hindus.
Realized that this would be of interest to some of you.
They haven’t been downloaded as much I would have expected.
So, I am letting you.
Happy Halloween. Cheers.
It is easy to work out the slang connotation of ‘Pecker’. I know of a great woodpecker joke. It’s punchline tells you all that you need to know of the name ‘pecker’. It goes: ‘So, it is true. Your pecker does get harder the further you are from home‘.
Well, I am just curious as to what Donald Trump is calling David Pecker of late. I am sure it is a derivation, starting with ‘P’, but a tad shorter than ‘Pecker’ per se.
David Pecker is Jewish. So, like all the Jewish ‘Millers’, his surname doesn’t reflect the usual English roots, i.e., somebody involved in ‘packing’ (as in wool or fish into a barrel). I really didn’t spend much time trying to research it (because it is not that important) but from the little I gather it appears that Jews in Europe have been using it for some time now.
Well right now I am only interested in Pecker in is obviously humorous context — because, of late, I have decided that all you can do in the current situation involving Trump is to try and see the funny side of it.
With luck we should get some real good Pecker jokes over the next few weeks. The current batch, on Twitter, is rather tame and obvious. So, get cracking.

Trump, As Ever, Got The Facts Mangled, BUT South Africa Is Indeed Planning To Seize White-Owned Farms.
On Google News search for ‘south africa white farmers‘

NO KILLINGS of white farmers, as yet, from what I can tell.
But, the PLANS for seizing White-owned farms is indeed being talked about. Not sure if any have been seized as yet. I had heard that this was on the cards. This, for us in the know, is nothing new. It happened, as one the stories above points out, in neighboring Zimbabwe. Wasn’t pretty and their were dire consequences.
But, this type of ‘grab’ is something that ex-colonial countries think is their right. My own adoptive father spearheaded the ‘Schools Takeover‘ in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) during 1950 – 1960. It wasn’t farms, but mainly church owned schools. The Christians were NOT happy. They tried to assassinate my adoptive father, multiple times, and supposedly to kidnap me.
I need to look into this more. This was just to give you a head’s up and point out that Trump’s tweet was not all kosher.
My December 5, 2017, “A Place To Call Home” tweet she liked.
If referenced this post.
Now as some of you know I am not into celebrity following and my inability to identify actors/actresses is legendary. Marta Dusseldorp, is an exception. I do recognize her and know who she is.
So, this was a thrill. Teischan will be ‘impressed’ I hope.
Today’s, i.e., August 16, 2017 tweet — post Charlottesville, VA ramblings.
July 25, 2017 Tweet.
This is essentially FAKE NEWS and Trump should know it is FAKE unless he really is even more ill informed and confused than we realize.
As of April 2017 Amazon is collecting Internet sales tax on shipments to ALL states that have a sales tax. That is an irrefutable fact. So for Trump to claim that Amazon has a ‘no-tax monopoly’ is wrong.
Yes, prior to April 2017, Amazon like so many other online retailers did not collect (and handover) sales tax to states that had such a tax. But, Amazon did not have a monopoly and the whole issue of Internet-tax has yet to be fully thrashed out yet.
So, yes, it is true that Amazon in the past was ‘no-tax’.
And yes it is still true that Amazon does NOT force 3rd-party sellers on Amazon from charging sales tax. It probably should to be consistent and avoid Trump having a sliver of an excuse.
Trump’s gripe is really NOT against Amazon. He, irrationally, is MAD at the ‘Washington Post‘ but rails against Amazon because Jeff Bezos owns both Amazon and ‘The Washington Post’.
