I moved on 🙂 Go Trump! Even if he shoots a man in Reno just to watch him die, right?

    To clarify, this was my FB header thingy graphic cover page from 2014-15-ish. Lurved the Scott Walker…I thought he should be our next prezzy,

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      I was an early Walkerite too. I became a fan during the Wisconsin Recall Wars. But then he faded as it became clear he wasn’t ready for prime time. Then he quit, so supporting him became moot.

      I was not an original Trumpkin. But over the past year it has become more and more obvious that nobody could beat him. The German word is “zeitgeist” – Donald Trump embodies the zeitgeist of 2016. This is one of those times when the man and the moment come together in a way nobody could have foreseen even two years ago.

    • swanspirit says:

      I was there, Scott Walker all the way, until he fizzled right out. And I thought Trump would flame out. But he was flame on instead.

      Not so far fetched in the not too distant future. The federal government is an overreaching monster and I anticipate open defiance at the state level should HRC be elected. We’re beyond tired of being pushed around by DC and the coastal elite.

        That little town’s on the Canadian border in upper NW Washington. Much closer to Vancouver than Spokane and Seattle. I was surprised at the turnout ! And such a small showing for the protesters, I think there were more police in the free speech zone than actual protesters.

      This is America and we are going to take Her back dammit.

      • DeniseVB says:

        You betcha’. I’m really worried that if Hillary wins, that’s going to be a mandate for Obama’s third term by continuing to reward failure and punish success. Hubby and I are comfortable in retirement, over the past few years have been liquifying our assets in a safe credit union savings account and paid off the house. Plan A: Trump wins and stops the bleeding. America’s Back Baby! Plan B: Hillary wins, we sell the house, put equity in savings and wait. Plan C: Cash it all in and move to Costa Rica or some other paradise friendly nation. Plan D: USA goes full Venezuela, the rest of the world’s economies die. Plan E: We’re old enough not to care, you’re on your own my Obama lovin’ Bernbot , NeverTrump and Hilbot family and friends.

        I choose to be optimistic 😉

        • AFVet says:

          We have one thing going for us,….Trump is in our court.
          We paid the house off in ’94 and have been saving ever since.
          No matter what happens in this election, we are ready for it.

        • taw46 says:

          I moved as far away as I could, but to still be in the U.S. I don’t think that will matter if things continue on the same path. But I also have that age thingy going for me 😊.

    Prepare for whiners, Trump Lied ! He’s Not Self Funding!! or something neverTrumpy. Self funding was only for the primary, nobody expects him to match HRC’s 2 billion budget.

  13. Myiq2xu™ says:

    • DeniseVB says:

      Yep, it was NeverTrump that triggered this post. I’m so sick of being called ignorant for supporting him. We all (here) pretty much evolved from supporting earlier candidates, where were the anti’s on the journey other than bashing Trump ? So over the major parties and it looks like a lot of other Americans are too.

    Taking a look at the comments section at Breitbert it looks like shillary has unleashed her paid troll army.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      These days the only place where I read the comments is here.

    • Somebody says:

      There was a story a week or so back that Hillary has indeed employed a paid troll army.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Trolling is a hobby, not a profession 😉

        • Somebody says:

          I’m dead serious there is such a thing as paid trolls. In fact I know one, or at least she was one. She completely misread me and at one point and tried to recruit me when the ACA battle was raging, we have since parted ways. It was absolutely a paid gig.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Oh, I know there are ! Should have added /sarc to my 😉

            I read the article a few days ago, it’s one of Hillary’s PAC’s spending millions on an army to “correct misinformation about Hillary’s policies”.

    • DandyTIger says:

      I hope we get some trolls to play with.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Hillary’s troll army is desperately needed at Chelsea’s dumb tweet. (Really ? An 8 year old is worried how they’re going to pay for college? The comments are brutal……

  16. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Dana Milbank, liberal columnist for the Washington Post, revealed Friday what he called a “dirty secret” among his media peers: that Trump is “disastrous” for the country, but they can’t get enough of covering him.

    In a column, Milbank said that despite viewing a Trump presidency as a peril, they continue to cover him as though he were a normal candidate.

    “He is unsavory, but covering him is a guilty pleasure,” he wrote. “And this, I would argue, is the dirty secret of the news media in this election. Trump, virtually all of my colleagues in the news business agree, would be disastrous for America, and the world. But he’s good for us. Too often we tend to ‘vote the story’ and devote lavish coverage to that which produces the most conflict, the most outrage — and the largest audience.”

    Milbank argued that the billionaire businessman boosts readership and ratings at news organizations “because of the spectacle he creates: the violence, the bigotry, the foul language, the belligerent rhetoric, the name-calling,” but that it “doesn’t mean he deserves to be treated as if he were Mitt Romney, John McCain or George W. Bush.”

    Trump has enjoyed outsized news coverage since he launched his campaign in June, drawing in media by way of his showmanship and willingness to court controversy. The effect was to limit the exposure of his GOP rivals for the nomination.

    But much, if not most, of the coverage of Trump was negative. In both news and opinion pages, he was called racist, sexist and xenophobic for his policy positions, which included banning foreign Muslims from entering the U.S. (a response to a Islamic State-related terrorist attack in Europe).

    Even so, Milbank wrote that the media coverage was irresponsible.

    “[I]f my colleagues in the media continue to treat Trump as a legitimate democratic figure,” he said, “well, that would be a recipe for ruin.”

    The media love to think of themselves as the gatekeepers of “legitimacy”

    • DandyTIger says:

      “…virtually all of my colleagues in the news business agree, would be disastrous for America” and “doesn’t mean he deserves to be treated as if he were Mitt Romney, John McCain or George W. Bush.”

      Notice how he only mentions GOP candidates there. As if of course he wouldn’t compare to any Dem candidates in treatment. And disastrous for America? What do they know about economics, working class issues, anything really? They’ve said how vague Trump is on policy, but somehow they know he’d be a disaster. The gatekeepers are partly why we’re in this mess. And the general public rightly holds them in less esteem than even congress.

    • WMCB says:

      And this is why I have no sympathy left for our vaunted “Fourth Estate” (the idea of special protections for the press is found nowhere in the constitution, BTW – just free speech for us all.)

      Oh, so Trump wants them to live under the exact SAME libel restrictions/risk as everyone else, no special treatment? No “extra dose” of free speech for them that the rest of us don’t get? Fine with me.

    Well, we’re back to Camp Grandma. My daughter’s CT scan came back clear. No more tumors and no metastasis. We were busy working out the logistics of what to do about her surgery when my son-in-law was ambulanced to the hospital with chest pains. He’s improving and waiting on the cath lab to be free. Mostly likely a stent is needed, but worst case scenario is bypass surgery. We can’t move back to the old house without some major moving of stuff around because Elliesdad can’t make it up and down the stairs, and the kids have “un-disabled” the house. My son would help us get the house ready for Pops , but he’s away in NYC on business and won’t be back for a week or so. The neighbors don’t know my daughter very well yet, but they were great neighbors to us, and they swooped down and took the kids in until one of my friends brought the kids to me last night. She works in their town and lives in RI. She said it was the most fun ride home from work yet. Grandma II called me from Ohio, and asked if I could use some help. It pays to be nice to your kids’ in-laws. She’s hopping a train and will stay all the way through my daughter’s surgery if I keep Crash until things settle down. So her bro will stay through the weekend. My friend will drop him off at school on her way to work on Monday. But I don’t know how long I have Crash for. Other than providing an endless buffet (3 breakfasts so far this morning), her expectations for me aren’t very high so I should be OK. Ellie is a good babysitter and playmate. I’m still feeling the effects of the pneumonia, but I’m mostly OK. Just get tired easily. It’s funny. The kids worried about our moving away to the woods. So far they’re the ones falling apart. lol

      You’ll just walk up to a screen covered with pictures and tap what you want. The screen will show you your order, and if it’s right, you’ll click “OK” and pay, and the order will be filled by a person who may or may not get it right. Just like always. 😉

  26. mothy67 says:

    Wonder what effect the bathroom drama is having on those that have lived transgender for years and are not celebrities. My experience they are people living quiet lives not attention seekers.
    Also what about a family dealing with gender dysphoria or whatever its called, if they are struggling with a teen during puberty do they need the school encouraging what might otherwise be a passing phase? How is it the schools business?
    The whole thing seems so surreal.

    • elliesmom says:

      If you divorce your thinking from the bathroom issue and just look at the process that’s being used, it all makes perfect sense. If they can get you to believe male and female is a social construct that has nothing to do with biology and that 2+2=5, there will be no case for objective reality any longer. The truth will be whatever they say it is. It’s the 1984 playbook. The “new normal” is already part of the current vocabulary. I think the problem with the bathroom issue is they got cocky. They didn’t let people adjust to the last new normal before they pushed this one on us.

            I visited Washington DC after mustering out of the Army at Ft. Did, NJ.
            Spend 3 days there.
            Cherry blossom time of the year. Walked everywhere.
            Capital, WH, Lincoln & Jefferson Memorial. FBI HQ where I saw a SpclAgt.
            do the Tommy gun shoot with tracers.
            Treasury Bldg, National archive to see the Declaration of Independence. Nat’l Space & Air Museum & Some of the Smithsonian.
            Finished last day JFK’s grave, Tomb of the Unknowns for changing of The Guard, ended at Marine Memorial. What has never left my memory & heart was watching a burial service at Arlington. Such a private moment for the bereaved, I felt like I was intruding, but such a solemn ceremony one can’t help but watch. The eulogy, rifle salute & taps, the reverence our Flag was shown as it was folded and presented to the wife.
            Many, many moments I remember, but this one stands out as…gee, can’t find the right word.
            Maybe because I got so long winded.

          • AFVet says:

            I served on the Honor Guard while stationed in Texas.
            It was a moving experience.
            The Flag draped coffin, the 21 gun salute, and the presentation of the Flag to the family. The sounding of Taps always brought a tear to my eye.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Cisco and AFVet, I’m qualified to be buried in Arlington. Hope ya’ll come 🙂

      What are they going to do next year when they throw a party and none of the Hollywood folks show up?

      • mothy67 says:

        But if hillary loses do not the obamas retain control of the party? He can hold speeches about mean raycist obama.

        • elliesmom says:

          Whoever was the last contender for POTUS is usually considered the leader of the party, which is why Romney thinks he can butt into this election. Obama will join the “Living Presidents’ Club”. He’s expected to become apolitical. He may decide the rules don’t apply to him, but if Hillary gets the nomination, win or lose, she’ll be the head of the party for the next four years. Sometimes it’s just in name only when the person lost, but it’s still their position.

      • DeniseVB says:

        My worry now is why aren’t the O’s house hunting ? Planning their library? Ya’know movin’ on plans? So far in my First Lady bio project, if they didn’t have a permanent home to return to, they were certainly looking for one by the middle of their second terms. Even the recent one termers , Carter and GHWB had lovely residences to return too.

        Even as a lowly military family, we had 6 months notice to sell/buy/rent/slumlord/planAmove/ … I just don’t see the Obamas being all jiggy about “their” next adventure, but they’re only a 8 months.

        It’s a lovely dress and color, I would have gone with less poofery since it adds width to her.
