47. I think he acts like one of those manikins come alive from The Twilight Zone. Nevertheless...


his handlers have a strategy, born from long success with those tactics, and there is a segment that will follow along, some that won't.

The radical conservatives have pissed off virtually every group except white men with guns, (they are already pissed off, apparently), but it is early, and November is a long time away, with economic slowdown almost a certainty. It is possible all that could become a non-issue and we start tanking on jobs again, 'cause we can only push so many home health care aides, baristas, and Walmart greeters out into the market.

Then it might be a different election. I just can't imagine living in a country where a person can buy up companies (take a cut), load them with debt they can never repay (take a cut), watch them go under (take a cut) and walk away (take a big, big, damn cut), and then become president on the bodies of the working people he destroyed, but I can see where people are in many cases feel and think that they are worse off after 4 years, and want a change, without looking that deep.


The question is will all or enough of the independents choose him or not.

Actually the Mormons do one thing I know of very, very well - which I can't imagine ol' phony $$ baloney doing - and that's practice community. They teach everyone to store food, and have a pantry where members who need it can get it - free if need be. They have their own small canning-quipment-equipped commercial kitchens in many communities, shared by members and sometimes the public. I don't participate in religion, but I admire what they have done in that regard. Ought to be more of those in regular communities, open to the neighborhood. Maybe we are going there...
