I hope nobody takes this wrong, but; they won!

They’re mean spirited, cannot be trusted, in bed with the Russians and manipulating the media, probably partly involved with this BS stunt that Comey pulled, they know what was going on in the Rust Belt, they were filled with hate, they reached out to my parents who wanted nothing more than to see the brown people go, followed by the ni$$ers followed by the Jews – they ran a brilliant campaign.  They’re living like Kings and Queens, funneling money into their private businesses, shutting down transparency, not releasing tax returns, and on and on and on.  They tried to give mega billions to the super rich while cutting health insurance to over 20 million people.

I hope nobody takes this wrong, but; they won!

They make up news, they make up history, they lie about how they’ll handle foreign policy (China as a currency manipulator), change of stance on Syria, change of stance on North Korea, they shuffle incompetent people around into roles of leadership.

I hope nobody takes this wrong, but; they won!

I would love to personally spank Debbie Wasserman-Schultz!  No, not in any kind of kinky sexual way, but like the spankings my dad used to give me – where he emphasized each word with a swing of the belt:  “You (whack) fucked (whack) up (whack) this (whack) election (whack) because(whack) you (whack) weren’t (whack) interested (whack) in (whack) your (whack) party (whack) but (whack) rather (whack) yourself (whackiddy)(whack)(whack)!

I hope nobody takes this wrong, but; they won!

It is time for the Democrats to bear down and get busy.  This is going to take some serious strategy and bright minds.

Who do they get and what’s their first 5 steps?

As I watch this ‘debacle’ — the American Healthcare Act — move through the House like a pig that has been slathered in grease, as the AMA, AHA, AARP oppose the legislation (haven’t heard from the NRA yet), it is often advantageous in understanding WTHIGOH to examine motive.

With that in mind:

Motive #1:  This is a dodge, a scam – an effort to draw attention away from the Trump administration’s liabilities with ties to Russia. (Covering Trump’s behind)

Motive #2:  This is a dodge, a scam – an effort by Republicans to kill any chance of the promised Obamacare repeal; so that Republicans won’t have to deal with the millions of pissed off voters that will lose coverage or even health care. (Covering their own behinds)

Motive #3:  This is an honest attempt to reform/improve Obamacare while taking credit for killing it at the same time. (Staying in office – Covering their own behinds)

Motive #4:  This is an honest attempt to stop freeloading loser Americans from suckling at the teet of the government (you know – get off of their bootstraps), while at the same time funneling billions of dollars to the top 1% of the public. (Paying the rich back for their support)

What say ye?  1, 2, 3, 4 – or perhaps there’s another motive I haven’t listed.

Who will the Democrats run against in 2020?

Michael Moore recently said he believes that Trump will not last through his first term in office.

trumpwalksAmerican University professor Allan Lichtman, an individual with whom I have great respect (and predicted a Trump win), has also stated that Congress will remove Trump before his first term is over.  Lichtman, author of the “13 keys” system of Presidential predictions, has correctly predicted every winning President since 1984. 

Here’s a link to an interview with Lichtman: http://www.aol.com/article/2016/11/11/a-professor-who-called-trumps-presidency-now-says-it-wont-last/21604240/

Since Congress will be unable to control the Donald, and since the constitution does not indicate that an impeachable offense must take place while a President is in office, and given the fact that Trump is facing numerous court actions in regards to his business(es) – do you think Trump will last through his first term, or will the Democrats be running against President Pence in 2020?

Shall we discuss the debate question?

I’ve seen lots of posts and comments about whether or not Clinton should debate Trump.  Now, the common wisdom is that if a candidate is really ahead – they should avoid / diminish the number of debates.  After all, if you are going to win – there’s no upside to debating – only a downside – let’s say you curse at your opponent, or compare yourself to Kennedy, or perhaps misspeak about what territory Russia is controlling!

podiumFearless leader says Clinton should not debate Trump.  I’m leaning in that direction.  I thoroughly believe that the media (whatever that means) is not interested in a debate, a discussion of contrasting ideas on how to solve such major issues like immigration reform, crime in cities, overpopulated prisons, foreign trade agreements, etc. . .  Instead, a media faced with the possibility of an electorate bored with a foregone conclusion, is focused on instigating a cage fight between two septuagenarians.  We won’t see questions about how the United States should handle Syrian refugees, but rather we will see questions about who is the biggest bigot.

In an interesting post, Steve McQuinn from Quora, gives his sage advice to Clinton as to how she should approach the Presidential debates:

“My advice to Hillary:

  1. Do not ever engage Trump directly in verbal exchange, do not respond directly to his provocations. A debate is not a dialog. A shouting match of zingers and putdowns will only depress the turnout.

  2. Keep nonverbal reactions to Trump very subtle and mild. Don’t roll your eyes, just raise your eyebrows. Don’t laugh out loud, just smile wryly. Respond to Trump’s style with a deconstruction of his demagoguery, directed at the audience in terms that show Trump is disrespecting the audience.

  3. Respond to Trump’s misstatements with simple, informative corrections that not only set the record straight, they educate the audience without being condescending. Use down to earth metaphors, analogies, and stories about real people.

  4. Always speak to the audience, not to the moderators, who are mostly interested in provoking spectacle. Everything uttered should be couched as values that serve people. Everything should be a positive assertion of faith in the best of human nature.

  5. When in doubt about how to conduct yourself, ask yourself, “What would Elizabeth Warren do?”

So what say ye Trail Mixers?  Should Clinton debate or not – and what should the strategy be if she decides to?
