What shall we give the president?
Monday, 26 September 2016
Right folks, I have been seriously remiss - in other words lazy. Magnetic bracelets can make you less tired, but they can't cure chronic laziness syndrome. And all I can say is mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maximus culpa. Or something like that.
Okay, so what's going on in the world of magnetic bracelets? Or perhaps that should be what's going on in the world generally? Well the kids have gone back to school, the weather - sorry to bang on about it - has turned decidedly autumnal and the presidential election campaign in the United States is becoming increasingly acrimonious.
Ah, that's it my brethren. That shall be the theme for my sermon today. Which magnetic bracelet is right for Hillary and which for Donald? The obvious approach is to go to the For Him section for Donald and the For Her section for Hillary. But the obvious answer isn't always the right one. Sometimes you have to think outside the box. Maybe we should think in terms of the particular characteristics and peculiarities of those two presidential candidates to make the right choice. And boy, do they have some peculiarities!
I suppose that for Donald Trump it is a little bit easier, as his life is pretty much an open book. He may have faults and vices, but they are all out in the open. We know he owns casinos but doesn't like to gamble. He said himself, at least once, that he doesn't like to play in the casino; he prefers to own the casino. And he likes power - having it that is. So what he needs is an Energy Pendant. And not just any Energy Pendant, but rather one that goes with someone who likes to own the green baize table.
So how about this Ace of Spades Energy Pendant? I think it would rather suit him. And it's not all that expensive, so he can certainly afford it.
Okay, you say, but what about Hillary? I suspect that she's a bit harder to please. But then again I also suspect that for all her faults she's a woman of taste. After all, she's not just a politician's wife, she's also a politician in her own right. And a very successful one at that!
Let's face it, you don't get very far in American politics unless you dress for success. Hell, Richard Nixon was judged to have "lost" the presidential debate with John F Kennedy because he forgot to shave before going on the air- and the American public judged him harshly because of his five O'clock shadow, caught by the unforgiving lens of the camera in the close-up shots.
So even men in American politics are judged by their appearance. How much more so, then, when it's a woman? People are always judging women - not just in politics, but in all professional walks of life - by their appearance. Right or wrong, that's just how it is.
So for Hillary, I recommend the magnetic bracelet with ambers on the right. I think it would suit a lady of her age. And I mean that not ungallantly!
