I might not state my lack of sympathy for Trump voters quite so rudely, BUT

I also lack much sympathy for you. Many of you, particularly you guys and gals over 50 that voted for Donnie, supposedly had enough wisdom, memory, and experience to know who was who and what was what. You supposedly had the judgement to know who was lying to you, who was telling the truth, and who was trying to scam you.

You had plenty of info about Donnie’s character and business practices—that he went bust multiple times, got married at least three times, and had been unfaithful to his partners. You knew that his businesses cheated his subcontractors multiple times, and you had inklings that he might have problems telling the truth. AND DESPITE ALL THIS YOU WENT OUT AND VOTED FOR HIM ANYWAY.

Being young and stupid is one thing. Many younger guys and gals lack judgement, caution, and critical thinking skills. It often shows up in drunk driving and jack-@$$ behavior. It’s almost expected and almost forgiveable.

You lack that excuse, and it looks like you pi$$ed away your chances to wise up from the day you hit puberty to this point forty plus years later. Gawd, guns, and abortions are no excuses, either.

Like my old man used to say: “There’s no fool like an old fool.”

McConnell Has Got To Go

It’s not just Mitch McConnell being an obstructionist reactionary; McConnell has shown signs that he could well be connected to the flow of Russian money that flowed to Agent Orange and other Republican candidates and organizations in the last couple of elections.

This is intolerable. It may not legally qualify as treason, but it’s the sort of behavior that no country guarding its sovereignty and its self-determination should tolerate, particularly those governments that aspire to be representative republican governments with elected officials chosen by its own citizens.

Successfully play me for a fool once, shame on you

Successfully play me for a fool twice, shame on me

Successfully play me for a fool multiple times, and I’m either a Trumpkin or a Democratic purist progressive.

I'm A Former Cold Warrior: If Trump Resigns, PROSECUTE!

I’m a former Cold War voter who reluctantly voted for Republican presidential candidates because I sincerely believed that they’d be tougher on the Kremlin than their Democratic counterparts.

That being said, I emphatically endorse investigating and prosecuting Donald Trump either for allowing the Russian Federation to influence our elections and Individual One for being an agent of an unfriendly foreign power. Such behavior by American politicians not only shouldn’t be tolerated, but the parties involved should be prosecuted so such behavior should be deterred in the future.

I'm not that worried about Democratic chances in 2020. Trump has soiled the Republican brand

I’m not that worried about Republican chances in 2020 even if Donnie resigns, gets dumped, or flat-lines before Primary Season. I’m old enough to remember the 1976 elections and remember just how tainted the Republican brand still was after Watergate and the Nixon pardon.

Let’s do some deep-breathing and relax. Trump has been in office far longer into his term than Tricky Dick was into his second term when he resigned, and the ordure from Trump’s dealings is still flowing and getting into the news. Today’s Republican Party is in worse shape than it was back then. Father Pence is far more involved with this administration’s grubby dealings than Ford was in Nixon’s. The Republicans are far more racist than they were back then (Remember SenatorEdward Brooke?), and I doubt the MAGA Magoos would turn out enough to vote for someone of Haley’s complexion into the White House.

I Bet Tucker's Too Clueless To See Why Pacific Life Yanked

their advertising. It isn’t just nebulous good public relations, it’s because Tucker's comments are a threat to their bottom line.

I wonder if Tucker has a clue that people of other races and other ethnicities buy insurance and other financial products? Or if Pacific Life has glommed onto the fact that they need a wider customer base than bigoted white folks? Or that Pacific Life has noted that regardless of skin color, gender, or ethnicity, money is green? Judging by his response, I’d say he hasn’t.

I can think of yet another reason not to advertise with people purveying racism. They look stupid. And looking stupid is definitely bad for business.

I'm Trying To Think Like A Chest-Thumping Rugged Individualist

of the sort te Extreme Right professes to admire so I can see if I can sympathize.


(Time passes)

Nope, I don’t have any sympathy. Caveat emptor, y’all. Let the buyer beware.

Putin's Favorite Congressman Deserves An Appropriate Send-Off

after his electoral defeat. The Red Army Choir singing “Farewell Slavianka” maybe?

At the risk of being labeled a nut-case

I think I have a touch of the Second Sight, even though I consider mine to be sketchy and often unreliable.

Nevertheless, I do have advice for the Kat Kerr’s of this world: don’t confuse what your brain constructs with your subconscious with input about what’s really going to go down. And when you’re unsure as to which is which, keep your mouth shut.

And no, I don’t make Second-Sight predictions for either fame or fortune.

At times I think Marco Rubio wants to set the clock back

To pre-1958 Cuba. Contrary to present-day Floridians’ assumptions, Cuba was NOT a true democracy. In fact it was a dictatorship with sham elections and political repression. The last free Cuba election had been held some years BEFORE Fidel Castro took over, and vote-rigging was common practice.

If Floridians want genuinely free and fair elections they should blow off little Marco’s whiny comments and demonstrating their outrage.
