I can't post anything else ceramics related before shouting this into the void. Actually.... in real life it's a LOT more sweary because some contemptuous people are winning, stealing, amassing power and riches, turning our democracy to shite and it's not me and it's probably not you.
It's hard to say anything else coherent for the clanging cognitive dissonance we're all suffering.
We are in a #constitutionalcrisis . Barr is in contempt. @donaldjtrumpjr has been subpoenaed . I’m feeling this. And I ordered a bra on line and it fits. Three for three. I think I’ll buy a lottery ticket.
Pt.2....In an attempt to gain public favour for her proposed marriage, Princess Irene publicly stated that her marriage was intended to help end religious intolerance.
No one from the Dutch Royal family or any Dutch diplomatic representative attended the marriage of Princess Irene and Prince Carlos Hugo in the Borghese Chapel at the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, Italy, on 29 April 1964; the couple chose Rome as the site of their nuptials because of its neutrality. Dutch television provided coverage of the marriage and Irene's family were among those who watched the ceremonies, although fate conspired in the form of a power failure which made them unable to see the last part of the rite. Because she had failed to obtain the approval of the States-General to marry, Irene lost her right of succession to the Dutch throne. She agreed that she would live outside of the Netherlands.
After the wedding, Irene was very active in her husband's right-wing political cause, but over time they drifted away from right wing extremism to left wing sympathies and became a part of the international jet-set crowd. In 1977, Irene was expelled from Spain because of her political views; her husband was also barred from the country for the same reason. Prince Carlos was allowed to return in late 1977, but Princess Irene was not permitted back in the country until April 1978. The prince, head of the Royal House of Bourbon-Parma, became a naturalized Spanish citizen in 1979. The couple had four children, but the marriage ended in divorce in 1981.
Having been married to the Duke of Parma, she is the only one of her sisters whose husband was of princely status.
A #ConstitutionalCrisis and lawlessness at our top levels of government is no joke. Besides obviously #UniteBlue and #VoteBlue, if we don’t see massive transformation back to a sane democracy, #Resist eventually must go to mass #Protest.
