If I were a tree what kind of Trump voter would I be?

This type of free form  associative polling really chaps my ass. What does it add up too, all these bullshit questions.  This kind of  focus group bullshit chaps my ass; who you gonna vote for should focus the fucking group, not "what kind of tree would I be:"

"The veteran pollster who conducted the focus group, Peter D. Hart, has a knack for drawing out voters’ deep thoughts with “What Kind of Tree Would I Be”- type questions and exercises, though the voter who offered “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” as Mr. Trump’s theme song admitted with a laugh and a shrug that she could not quite explain why.  (emphasis added; quotes reordered.
The stupid but high paid pollster gets to voters' feelings in a roundabout way by asking them to write post cards to the candidates:

Cassandra Westerhold, 33, an independent who works in the oil and gas industry, wrote, “I believe that you are a bully and misogynist and I am ashamed to have you as the front-runner for the Republican Party.”
Aron Smith, 45, who works in technology for a large financial institution and supports Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, tried to strike an evenhanded tone. “While I appreciate your business acumen in the boardroom and believe it suits you well as the head of a huge business conglomerate,” he wrote, “I do not believe your crass and cavalier attitude fits the role of president.”
The pollster veers into insanity with these questions where he might accidentally veer into meat of the matter, that our society and especially the media value style over substance, a potentially fatal mistake when giving a man the keys to a vast nuclear arsenal.

[There were deep reservations about Mr. Trump, too. But in their comments — and their answers to probing questions like what song best described him and what they imagined he was like as a fifth grader — some voters suggested that their concerns were less about substance than about style, and that just a little attitude adjustment was all the billionaire needed.]

Attitude adjustment for a man with his finger on the nuclear trigger!  You gotta be freakin' kidding me!

Kentucky Blue

While not usually one to take pleasure in pain of others--especially in sports; as a Cubs fan, it brings a heavy burden of pain for me--but Kentucky basketball has dominated for so long it felt good to see them go down in flames.

We Kentucky mockers best enjoy while we can for Coach (NBA prep school mentor) Calipari has another loaded class for 2016, with 5 five star players signed.

Of course with players playing 1 year and then done for their college careeer, they barely have to go to class.  Why should they go to class when they plan on seeing America while playing in the NBA?

"People Annoy Me"

The stupid  ones annoy me most.  At least this author at Kos feels my pain.

[while extroverts are energized by social interaction, introverts are left drained by them.  This is exactly me.  After a day of meetings, I want to sit in a quiet room....]

The Donald: Failed Businesman Extrodinaire

Didja hear 'bout Trump's Intenet endeavour?  Probably not.sonce it died stillborn:
[Donald Trump was apparently about to dip his toes into the ISP world back in the summer of 1998, announcing that the newly formed Trump New Media would “wire his 20,000 residential apartments with high speed $30 monthly access.”

And sure, Trump could have gone with something vaguely within his realm of expertise—but why break with tradition? A local announcement at the time wrote that “Trump admits he’s hardly the man to head a new media firm. ‘I’ll tell you what I know about it: Absolutely nothing.’” He partnered with Freelinq Communications to launch the firm, but after getting shut out by his more competent competition, the endeavor failed to ever take off.]emphasis added

What else does he know nothing about?  Politics and compromise.

For me, who'll drink anything with alcohol, I'd like to try Trump Vodka. Make mine a Trump and tonic!

I'm Voting for Hillary, After Reading Free Ebook

While absolutely loving Senator Sander's policies, just don't believe a democratic socialist can get elected in America.

He already helped pull Hillary to the left  with their free plans for attending colege.

What about all the questions about her past?  Will she get indicted?  How about the emails?


2 respected investigative journalists, Gene Lyons and Joe Conason, have looked nto those and debunked them all.

Sure, the whiny left will complain Hillary does not fit thier idea of what a Democrtic candidate should look like.  They pine for Senator Bernie.  Nevertheless, cold hard math precludes his nomination or winning  the general election.

Read the book for free:

I double dawg dare you.

Trump Calls Poor People Morons

Univeristy of Central Florida Starts Trump Protest Phase

Donald Trump, speaking at my alma mater--The University of Central Florida in Orlando--faced protesters prootesting his campaign of hate mongering, fear, and intimidation for the first time.

Apparently, the idiot galvanized the student body onto using thier first amendment rights to showThe Donaldthey did not approve of his hate speech.  In this case, I'd have to call the protesters the sane ones.  Trumop should have known better to take his crusadeof hate to a college campus because the youngsters in polls show themselves as more progressive than their elders.

From my reading of the news,UCF, provided the first countr protests of Trump's protest campaign:  "Make  America Great Again."  One clever felloweven glued an   anaomically correct dildo to his "Make America Great " cap and called Trump a dickhead.

When  did we stop becoming great?  The US ranks #1 in many categories like military might and economic prowess.  Nevertheless, the angry underbelly of American politics cares naught for facts but subsists on fear.

The middle class fears getting left behin and becoming por.  Poor folks fear goning hungry and not having a roof over their head while the rich fear taxes, while this braggart, this bully, bloviator full of brash braggadocio incites violence.

Video from London Telegraph of Orlando protest:

Trump's very words stir up protests and verbal dissent, and foment violence; he sounds like the schoolyard bully who never got into a actual fight. He says he wants to punch protesters in the face but you can bet he never took a punch.

Screw that; America, I promise to punch him if we ever come together, punch him right in the balls from my wheelchair.  Maybe he'll pay my legal bills.

[They(protests) have become a regular thing at Trump rallies, and while security experts say Trump has every right to quash dissent at events he's paying for, they say the Republican front-runner is playing with fire by not tamping down uncivil behavior and assault.

"I would go so far as to say that I find that abhorrent," security consultant Stan Kephart, a former police chief in Arizona and California, said of Trump's failure to call out his pugnacious followers. "To me, he's pressing the line. He's doing things that you would see a showman do."

What's Trump's attitude about all of this?

He once said he'd like to personally punch a protester in the face, and has pledged to pay his supporters' legal bills if they get in trouble.

He's spoken fondly of the "good old days" when police could rough protesters up without fear of backlash. "But today," he said Wednesday in Fayetteville, "they walk in and they put their hand up and they put the wrong finger in the air ... and they get away with murder. Because we've become weak."] emphais added
