Political Rant? Okay, More Like Donald Trump Bashing


crazydaffodil

850 views

I try not to impose my political views on people, as I respect everyone's right to make a formulated, rational decision all on their own, without input from me.  But these people who support, idolize, worship and plan to vote for Donald Trump for President of the United States, well, they've just done lost their freakin minds!!!!

Imagine a President Trump, if you will...  Sorry, I'll give you a moment to regain your senses and realize that this is just a hypothetical situation....

Okay, it might take a little longer still to recover.  I must be patient here....

Let's say he doesn't like what Putin is doing in Ukraine.  First, he'll try to negotiate a plan whereby Mexicans will build a wall around Russia and make the Chinese pay for it.  He'll find out that this won't work so he'll just end up buying Ukraine and crashing their economy to the point where all of their real estate interests are cheap and he'll buy them all up.  Then he puts in lavish hotels, casinos, skyscraper office buildings and condos.  He'll really have Putin fuming and wanting to make a deal then!

Back to reality now, George Carlin, one of my heroes, put it this way:

13312677_1069784753068449_2302918593202743383_n.jpg

So if spoiled Americans, who have been living in conditions far greater than most other places on the planet, can't accept a $7.50/hour wage limit, then they just don't understand how this country is supposed to work!  Only Trump should have enough money to wipe his ass with.  Only Trump can find ways to run up such incredible debt and resolve by just saying, "I'll print more money!"  The rest of you should be awed and wowed by his immense skill, talent and resourcefulness that it won't matter that the water you just drank is laced with so many toxins, it could kill you before you finish reading this sentence because we have no more environmental controls!  You think snow in May is bad, oh, just you wait until the "climate change" Trump has in store for you!

Now, I'm not advocating that Ted Cruz or Jeb Bush or John Kasich were better options, but don't you think the Republican party is so lame that the best person they could find that people would like is Donald Trump?  Seriously?  Are things really so bad in America that the rest of the world laughs at the idea of him even being nominated?  It's truly scary and I fear for those who can't see through this mirage he has placed in front of them.

Just sayin...

I find nothing to disagree with in your rant.

Apparently - yes.

I worry.

Preach it!

I won't say more because I think my hate for Trump is well enough documented.

I've been thinking about this. And I think I've found a situation where Trump might trump Clinton.

Trumps net worth: 4.5 billion USD

Clinton's net worth: 45 million USD

Now lets think about a [hypothetical] situation where the needed funds for running the government can't be appropriated for whatever reason. If your incumbent president  at that time decides 'oh shit, I'm doing this with my own money because it is *that* important', Trump can keep everything ticking along 100 times longer than Clinton.

I mean wouldn't that be worth reconsidering your opinion? Just for at least 1 millisecond?

Except that is only Trump's net worth according to Trump. We have no proof that he has that much and there is plenty of evidence that he does not. For one thing, he once explained--under oath no less-- that he estimates his net worth based on how he feels that day.

That isn't the net worth Trump gave himself. I got the net worth for both candidates from Forbes.com. I assumed that they would use a similar method calculating for both of them. I guess I forgot to add that.

Plenty of other reliable sources think that Forbes overestimated that number. His finances are murky and he refuses to release his tax returns. The Clintons have consistently released tax returns so their net worth is likely accurate or very close to it. Trump, not so much.

He made the undocumented immigrants prepare it at least.

      There is literally no reason to stop and reset during a cross country flight. It's just making the travel that much longer instead of going all at once.

      This! It’s not like the traveling itself would have taken days. They could have simply made their connection and would have been at the final destination a couple hours later. The way they organized it now probably means they had to get all their luggage, their cats and everything they brought hauled to whatever family they are visiting. And then in a couple of days they will have to pack up again, get to the airport, check their bags and cats again and go through security again. So they have two days of travel instead of one.

      It can make sense to split up a long journey into two days. We did that on the way back to Germany from our vacation in New Zealand. It’s two eleven hour flights back to back. We pulled through on the way there (which worked surprisingly well!), but on the way back the cheapest flight was a connection with an overnight stay at Seoul. So we did that. Arrived in the evening, took a taxi to a close and cheap-but-decent airport hotel, got a good night’s sleep and then got on the next 11 hour flight the next morning.

      But yeah, for two 3-4 hour flights? Makes no sense at all!

      How old are Shalom and Justin’s kids?  I can’t imagine leaving my kids when their other parent is dying.  The poor daughter who was down with him.  It just doesn’t seem like they are thinking about the kids, especially if the kids are too young to understand.  I don’t image Mike and Debi being support for the kids emotionally during this.  I’m sure Shalom is torn and she was raised essentially being taught husband is above all.  Someone in those kids lives are hopefully there to hold them.

      I just think of a first grade class I subbed for this year with Aiden, Kayden, Grayden, and Zayden.

      was Braden absent?

      Ok, I am not going to say I haven't read the left leaning conspiracy theories about this shooting, even if I'm trying to hold off until we have more verified information.

      But I don't get where this "Biden sent the shooter" idiocy is coming from because seriously here? He has an actual job, with stuff to do etc. Now if you wanted me to believe Steve Bannon sent the shooter I would be more receptive, mostly because it's the kind of out there theory I can get behind.

      I don’t mind that they want to see people they love, but why the prevarication

      Doesn't fit in with the "we need a safe and stable home across the country " grifting theme. I don't think people would have donated as much if they knew there was a planned holiday in the middle, and I am wondering how many donors are now side-eyeing the hell out of them. Because that wasn't a small omission there, it was strongly implied that both flights were sequential and necessary to get to where they are planning to live.

      I swear if it turns out they've moved two suburbs away in Seattle... I will probably laugh. I doubt this is the case - why fly the cats? - but part of me is expecting to find out they've moved to Salem, Oregon, or Sacramento.
