Conventional Wisdom Does Not Apply To Donald Trump


The conventional wisdom was that Donald Trump was not a serious candidate and would not win a single primary.

Jim Geraghty:

Does Campaign Infrastructure Matter?

Trump’s organizational deficiencies might doom him . . . or they might not matter.

What percentage of Hillary Clinton supporters will actually cast ballots this year? What percentage of Donald Trump supporters? Yesterday, Katie Packer, former deputy campaign manager for Mitt Romney, scoffed at the notion that Donald Trump could reach the necessary 270 electoral votes, suggesting that Trump would not win any state that he wasn’t leading by five points in the polls.

Will Trump underperform his polling numbers because his campaign’s get-out-the-vote operations aren’t as good as Clinton’s?

The entire political world is about to find out how much field offices and data analysis really matter. This year, Clinton’s campaign opened plenty of offices in every swing state — 65 in Florida, 54 in Ohio, 38 in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, 34 in Virginia, 33 in Iowa, 32 in Michigan, and 25 in Colorado and New Hampshire. They’re attempting to replicate and build upon a method that proved ruthlessly effective for the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. By comparison, the Trump campaign had just one campaign office open in Florida on September 1. Trump fans fervently believe their man will over-perform his final polling numbers, contending that there’s a “shy Tory” effect — that a significant number of voters support Trump but don’t want to reveal their support in surveys, and Trump inspires such passion in them that get-out-the-vote efforts won’t be as important as usual.

The conventional wisdom is that in order to win the White House you have to spend a ton of money on consultants, television, radio, and print ads, consultants, pollsters, consultants, phone and mailing lists, consultants, building a campaign infrastructure, and consultants. The conventional wisdom does not apply to Donald Trump. I’m not sure that the conventional wisdom applies to anyone this year.

Do you know who likes the conventional wisdom?


People like Katie Packer. Also pollsters, advertising agencies, television networks, radio stations, newspaper publishers, and all the other people who collect campaign dollars. The conventional wisdom was that Hillary and Jeb would spend over a billion dollars each this year. That’s a yuuge pie and lots of people were hoping for a slice.

But there is no amount of money that would make Hillary a better candidate. You can’t make chicken soup out of chicken shit.

A company came out with a new dog food, and hired an advertising firm to promote the product. The ad agency placed commercials on television and ads in magazines; millions of dollars went into the campaign. The commercials and ads were first-rate, but still the dog food did not sell. The client called a meeting at the ad agency and demanded to know what had gone wrong.

After a moment of silence, the leader of the ad agency team explained: “The dogs don’t like it.”

    I’ve never even thought about whether candidates sit or stand for debates or town halls. Funny to see Standing making a headline🙂

  2. Lulu says:

    The entire “campaign architecture” thing was set up by consultants to make money. I remember (1970’s) when congressional campaigns were the candidate, one campaign manager (usually the candidate’s friend, relative, or local yokel who didn’t have a job currently) and county party volunteers (like me in college). It was cheap, press the flesh, and fast. Some tv and radio ads, a few newspaper articles, then boom. The election. It became more complicated, expensive, and media heavy to make more money, hire more hacks, and give more control to “parties” which are elite national clubs now instead of a collection of rubes, city government functionairies, and union leader goons. And media companies made more and more money as did the consultants who handle media and get a cut. In “consulting” everybody gets a cut. Trump has his own (earned) media operation and has broke the back of crooked, opportunistic, hack consultants. The Dems are still full on with the old system and Trump is making them look like idiots.

    • votermom says:

      I heard Dennis Prager on the radio say that one consequence of McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform was that you could not go into politics anymore unless you were already rich.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      I can’t wait to see him do that, in the cesspool of DC. 😆

    • Constance says:

      The Dems are paying off the media with their ad buys and the media companies expect to be bought off every election. If Trump pulls this off he totally destroys the old system of profiting from our elections.

  4. Venus says:

    The Trump actual vote consistently over-performed his poll # by about 5 during the primary. I notice that Katie Packer, et al never mention that.

    • mothy67 says:

      What the hell is a “likely voter” this campaign season? I love when they ask if the people that arrive hours early in the heat/rain/snow will actually vote. Jackasses.

      • Somebody says:

        Tim that is the $65,000 question, will the electorate that turns out look significantly different than in previous elections? The answer to that question will also reveal who the likely winner will be.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        Amen 😀

      • lateblum says:

        I want to know how many first time voters (who were not recruited by the Dems) will have their right to vote – or their “credentials” – challenged at their polling place.
        Certainly not the ex-cons or the newly sworn in citizens or the AAs or the Latinos.

  5. mothy67 says:

    I read somewhere that a media buying company thatvdid not exist 2 years ago, registered in a house near DC got 15% of all money raised by Sanders even what he did not spend they kept. The reason he stayed in was because the cash was coming.

  6. elliesmom says:

    Conventional wisdom says unless the election is a blowout for one side or the other, we can’t trust the results of the election. Since neither party is doing anything to make sure our election results are accurate, one can only guess that both parties benefit from the ability to cheat. The solution to the problem is so simple. The ubiquitous “bubble sheet counter” is the perfect solution. The machine records the results instantaneously, and the news folks get to report the “un-certified election results” at the end of the day. Then the locked ballot boxes are opened, and all of the ballots are hand counted. The machine has already spit back any ballots where the markings aren’t clear. That might take several days, but unless someone has rigged the machines, it’s just going to validate results. So as long as it’s completed by the time the electoral college votes in December, time really isn’t an issue. The machines aren’t expensive. Most schools have at least one or two. The town I used to live in and the town where I live now both vote this way. It’s not a novel idea, and anyone who has been to school in the last 50 years understands the “#2 pencil rules” and knows how to mark the sheets.

      As much as the media wants to label Trump a clown and circus act, it’s really Johnson who is the clown. Yet there are some “republicans” that insist they are voting for him because he’s a serious candidate with a serious record…..unlike Trump who is a clown.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Gary Johnson, the candidate of the NeverTrumpers ! He does give fun interviews, but with so little media coverage, he needs not to waste it😀

    Time to attach a few more cars to the Trump Train. 🙂

    • Lulu says:

      This is not new. This is so common now it isn’t funny. The “humanitarian” worker as they call themselves also get killed fairly often when their victim (who thinks the pervert/groomer/rapist) is going to “help” them in some way or give them cash or the sex victim’s family gets them. It is all over the place and one of the reasons I give to charities anymore. It is the perfect cover for abuse.

      • taw46 says:

        I am so naive in some ways, I never knew this was a “thing”.

        • Lulu says:

          Churches with “missions” went through a period maybe 20-30 years ago when way too many of the “mission” people, from religious to teachers to medical, had a very disturbing percentage of perverts and deviants taking advantage of people seeking help or their children (even orphans). Most denominations improved screening, training, supervision,etc so now it is NGO’s who don’t seem to have a problem with it. As an example some middle aged woman who went to central America to “teach and do social work” got underage or very, very young males as lovers, gave them money, then discarded them like used toilet paper. One of them killed her for using him like that. This is very, very common but most of it doesn’t make in to the news. They caught the guy but he got a very small sentence because of what she had done. The UN “people” are notorious for very awful behavior and not just sexual.

        • blowme0bama says:

    • lateblum says:

      Trump ought to give Gennifer Flowers, Juanita Broderick and Monica Lewinsky front row seats to the debate along with Ivanka and Melania.

    • dm says:

      Saw that earlier on another site…also claims that Juanita Broddrick (?sp) will be sitting front and center for Trump…guess both sides are going to try and rattle the other. I’m sure the cameras will be all over that…maybe I should “watch” the debate with my eyes closed; don’t think I can stomach seeing Cuban’s smug face…ugh.

      • lateblum says:

        I did not see that claim. Where was/is it?
        I’m most likely not going to watch the debate. I can’t listen to her anymore. Well, I may watch it with the audio off.

        • dm says:

          I’ve retraced my steps and can’t find it…might have just been a snarky comment, can’t recall. In my defense, it was 5:30 and I was still working on my first cup of coffee…never trust an addict before they’ve had their fix.

      • Constance says:

        I’m shocked that the ads ABC is running for the debates are kind of WWF Smackdown ish.

      • Constance says:

        I just don’t see Trump getting rattled over anyone sitting off stage. He is a pro and I get the feeling he is chomping at the bit for this debate to get going.

    • votermom says:

      Why does Cuban hate Trump? Is it billionaire envy?

  12. lateblum says:

    Last night I was out with a good friend who is now supporting HRC. In 2008, she hated HRC and said she could “never” support her. Now she expresses concern for Hillary’s respiratory problems. She hasn’t seen anything that indicates different medical issues and when I told her a little about what I have seen, she voices real doubts that what I have seen is authentic. She says that if they were real, MSM and PBS would also be reporting them and they have not. At least not that she’s seen.
    This conversation has opened my eyes to what people are NOT hearing and are NOT aware of.
    THAT is deplorable in the true sense of the word.

    Oh my!

    Drudge Report – controversial debate rules!!!

    • votermom says:

      Fri Sep 23 2016 11:30:40 ET

      If presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton slips into a coughing fit or any other medical crisis during Monday’s high-stakes debate, she will have to power through, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned!

      “There are no commercial breaks,” a commission source explains. “Period.”

      Debate moderator Lester Holt does not have the authority to cut away from the stage during the epic 90-minute showdown. And microphone audio for either of the candidates is not to be manipulated.

      Clinton has experienced severe coughing episodes throughout the election year. During a Labor Day campaign stop she suffered a 4-minute choking marathon.

      Monday’s throwdown could top out at 100 million viewers, making it the biggest political event in history.

      EDITOR’S NOTE: The presidential debate commission settled an early flashpoint when Clinton demanded a step-stool at the podium to add height to her 5’4″ frame. Campaign Chairman John Podesta expressed concern that Hillary would be dwarfed by 6’2″ Trump. The request was quickly rejected. The commission is allowing for a custom-made podium, which will accommodate the difference in stature.

      • CiscoKid says:

        Maybe it will be a fair and square debate…but I’m not betting on it.
        But ninety minutes is a long time on your feet under studio lights.
        Imo, Trump has the strength, Hillary doesn’t .

        • lateblum says:

          It’s true. 90 minutes is a very long time to stand in the same place without some support. WEll, maybe only for women of a certain age. (That would be me.)

          • CiscoKid says:

            Old timer here has to use a cane, 24/7.
            I couldn’t do 90 minutes under hot studio lights standing up.

          • mothy67 says:

            i’m always in awe of older diner waitresses. They are on their feet for hours sometimes overnight.

          • lateblum says:

            Absolutely. And they are the best.
            I will say though, that walking or moving around on my feet for 90 minutes is a heckuva lot easier on my body (feet, legs, back) than standing in place. I had the older gbaby at a kids activity center 2 days ago when school was only a half day. We were (I was) moving the entire time. So much easier.

        Sometimes you have to say what you want to say very softly so either they have to listen or they miss it. Then walk away.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Those people in there are pathetic. After listening to a few minutes of that shit, people should have just walked out or popped her in the mouth.

      • lateblum says:

        You are right. I hadn’t watched the video. I shouldn’t have responded to taw. I was thinking about how I used to handle students, and my own kids from time to time.
        I still haven’t watched it in its entirety. Those people are indeed pathetic and part of the problem is how they wallow in self indulgence and self pity. They’d rather be victims so they can blame their (mostly) self induced problems on others.

      • Anthony says:

    • 49erDweet says:

      The actual “battle” on injustice in the classroom was fought four and five decades ago. What these nitwits are doing is pouting because they or their parent(s) have subsequently made bad choices in life and now they don’t wanna pay that price. They are being encouraged in this by academics who serendipitously stand to gain from the resulting unrest. It’s a racket.

      • lateblum says:

        49er, You said it so much better than I. I’m gonna send you my thoughts and let you just put them together in a cohesive comment.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Generations ago students would have long, strung-out, esoteric conversations at odd hours, usually deep into the night. “Conversations” meaning that one would talk, the rest would listen, each responding in turn, but listening to each other and see- and comprehending – other’s viewpoints. One at a time. An occasional f-bomb might creep in for emphasis, but they were rare because all understood the tendency that if one’s argument became weak, one resorted to crudity. And in that way our views on life were forever altered, because of shared experiences.
          What’s going on now is a simultaneous joint ranting and raving, with precious little time for considering another’s views. And the lack of organized, logical thought freely sprinkled with f-bombs is mind boggling. Most rants reflect a small child’s viewpoint. Hurt feelings. As if feelings were what mattered. Small children may be delightful, but are not particularity reliable when it comes to life situations. Feelings are only part of life. Giving them too much importance seems to me to be an indication of a troubled personality. But other’s mileage may vary.

          • mothy67 says:

            When I was a freshman in college I was housed in what had been army housing during Vietnam. 20 guys in 10 rooms, shared common room. Bunch of barracks shared a dining hall. Sat up late night talking. Went to eat together. Such a wonderful growing experience at 17. My nephew went to California State of PA. No traditional dorms. Real estate is huge business for colleges. He lived in an apartment with his own room. I found it sad. I transferred from Purdue to Temple. Few people live on Temple’s campus after first year. Live in Center City. No real connection to the campus. .
            If you are fortunate enough to go away to college. Enjoy that time. Grow. Listen. Enjoy.
            I want that time for da brat. These snowflakes don’t know what they have. The anger is systemic. Righteous indignation is healthy. Not what I see in the video. 20 of us learned to get along. One guys father had been a VP in Vietnam(odd they housed him there) He was 21 and could buy booze. Struggled with English but was always sitting up all night. A special snowflake would have ruined that experience for everyone. Suck the life, the joy out of everything. A vampire or a victim depending on who’s around.

          • lateblum says:

            I remember those conversations that went well into the night. Often at a local café or a 24 hour Dunkin Donuts. It was only one of the things that made college so rewarding and special. The back and forth among and between people was almost magical at that time. It gave us the opportunity to learn from one another. It also gave us the practice of sharing, listening, willing ability to exchange not only information, but philosophy and theories, and points of view that were often foreign to us. (Well, they were to me as I was some- what sheltered growing up.) but although I was sheltered, I was expected to grow up. Be responsible. be accountable. Be productive. I don’t see much evidence of this in the children in the video who are too involved in protecting themselves from expectations.

  16. Mt.Laurel says:

    Well the buzz around here is that that ever reliable MSM has their orders to try and attack DJT on his health care plan. Hillary, the darling of the koolaid and global crowd, will do sooooooooo much by increasing the number of people who have to pay for over priced insurance (note the timing with the IRS sending those friendly reminders). Because being required to pay a huge percent of you income on insurance that provides no real access to healthcare is just the ticket.

    Oh and Gap health coverage, once only found in the Medicare segment because Medicare pays so poorly, is now getting a boost because it is less expensive for people to buy a cheaper mandated health plan and pay for private gap coverage for the huge deductibles and other “gaps” created by O’Bam & Hill Care.

          I think it is Congressman McCaul making phone calls about a primary run against him in 2018 (the money is already lining up behind McCaul). I don’t think there will be a Ted job in a Trump administration. You can’t trust him as far as you can throw him. I doubt he could get the votes in the Senate for a SC seat. He needs to work for Goldman Sachs like his wife.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’ve seen buzz that a big endorsement is coming Monday, I wonder if Cruz jumped the gun to make it a Friday news dump story? Or, wonder who it could be on Monday?

      Several JFK/Clinton Dems are jumping on the Trump Train too since the left is going too socialist/commie for them.

      • Lulu says:

        I think this late of endorsements are just hopping on the “day late and a dollar short train”. I don’t think endorsements meant a thing in the primaries and they really don’t now especially this late. Our (and all voters) opinions mean as much as theirs do so who cares.

        • DeniseVB says:

          It really didn’t matter in the primaries, did it ? I’m also noticing that MSM print editions are losing subscribers for endorsing Hillary. Which proves, professional politicians, broadcast and print media are all out of touch with their people. Also, celebrities, corporate sponsors and Wall Street. Also, Twitter, Facebook and other shills for the left. Also, tv ratings and box office drops. Best election ever!

          • mothy67 says:

            I watched the Emmy’s to gauge the Trump hate. It was tepid at best. A few insults. Fox news says worse. Headlines though screamed he was maligned. Perhaps they didn’t want to give him any more attention or maybe they didn’t want to alienate half the country. Biggest gripe came back stage from a woman involved with a show on Amazon Prime, Transparent. Not ratings dependent. She evoked Hitler. Such an exasperating comparison. I immediately write off such dim tools as not very bright.

    Hillary demanded a step stool to debate Trump? They said no. Probably afraid she would fall off. But they are going to give her a squatty little podium to match her physical stature so we don’t just see her big ole head bobbing around. If I was her I would have crept out carefully wearing platform stripper shoes to make up for the height difference.

    • SHV says:

      Already doing damage control for possible (likely?) Hillary disaster on Monday:

      ” Friend —

      We all know how this race has been covered by reporters.

      We’ve all seen Trump get praised for being oh-so-“presidential” every time he manages to make it all the way through a speech without insulting a disabled person or a federal judge.
      “And on the flip side, we’ve seen every last issue of Hillary’s — right down to having a cough (!) or not smiling enough while talking about ISIS — get covered as if they were huge news.

      This is the context in which Monday’s debate will occur.”

      (give money!!!)

      • Lulu says:

        I would guess that they have been experimenting with her drug cocktail this week to keep her lucid, not coughing, and not zonking out. And standing. I can relate to the standing as I couldn’t stand up that long either without walking laps (back problems). I read somewhere this morning that the Trump debate team (I’m sure this is out of Trump’s mouth) to just let her drone on, talk too much (and trigger coughing) and bore everyone to death. And make everyone LOOK at her more. She is a “know it all girl” and it will be hard for her to keep it short and pithy which sounds like his plan for himself. And the more she talks the more she either drones or YELLS! And the head bobbing.

    • swanspirit says:

      She does not seem to be aware of how much optics matter. If I were her, I would have had”work done” on her eye bags and jowls; She can’t dress to save her life. There are women in powerful positions who know how to dress for power. She can’t even seem to find her color palette that is most flattering. Go ahead Hillary, keep wearing drab, muddy colors, they do so much for you. And those Kim Jong Un suits are stunning. Almost as good as the bathrobe and slippers look. The only thing you are missing are the pink curlers in your hair, and a green masque. The masque might help, considering the way your complexion looks lately. And btw, your eye makeup sucks too. Get some of those Hollywood friends to help you. No? Ok, look like a slub then.
      And Goddess that hair. Find one or two flattering styles and stick with them.

        I have absolutely no doubt she’s been having work done this week, probably some filler injections, maybe botox. She “refreshes” herself from time to time, but whatever she does it doesn’t last that long. I would imagine they are pulling out all the stops for her to appear well. They want her to look as fresh as a daisy or as close to it as they can get. I’m sure she’ll have her hair styled perfectly and her make up professionally applied.

        • mothy67 says:

          She’s same age as my mom(almost same distance between my oldest and youngest brothers as between me and mom). Looks much older. Her skin, to me, looks very thin. Especially her neck. Looks paper thin. My great grandfather was very old . Orphan so his age was estimated. 90’s late 80’s but his skin got so thin.

    NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana – The ‘Take ‘Em Down Nola’ group, which has aligned itself with the Black Lives Matter movement, is now saying publicly they plan to tear down New Orleans’ most iconic monument in the city.

    During a protest outside of New Orleans City Hall, a group of Take ‘Em Down Nola, which has made threats against the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) and Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s administration in the past, said police will have to step aside this weekend as they plan to physically tear down the equestrian Andrew Jackson monument in the French Quarter.

      Well, Mooch did say back in 2008 that we would have to change our traditions and our history. And the only way you can change the history is to erase it.

      They’ll let them do it, too. I think they’re supposed to do it tomorrow. Hope that encourages others to do the same and MSM broadcasts far and wide the glorious moments when these slugs overthrow the oppressive monuments that are keeping them down. Maybe they’ll Burn Monticello or Mount Vernon.

      • taw46 says:

        Maybe the statue will fall on them as they pull it down. Really, how do they think they will tear it down? Are they bringing bombs with them?

    What is the rationale behind a cap on individual donations? Elites can give as much as they want to PACs and pay 250,000 for a dinner. So whatis the point.?

    Sooo my oldest daughter called me a little while ago and told me that BLM are planning a protest in her suburb of Charlotte. She actually lives north of Charlotte, near Lake Norman in Mooresville which is in a different county. Her manager invited to spend the weekend with her and her husband, they live out in the boonies. So she ran to her apartment and packed a bag and has already arrived at her manager’s house. Lots of employees of her company are headed to friends and family to get away from potential problems.

    I guess from the thugs standpoint it makes sense because the national guard has set up down in Charlotte and they can’t get their thug on, so why not spread out and find a better location??

    My daughter is hoping that it’s just a peaceful protest of locals only and everything else is just rumor. However, if stuff goes down you heard it hear first.

    • taw46 says:

      I lived in Charlotte for a number of years in the 70’s, my mother and sister lived there longer than me. Back when it was a sleepy, Southern city with not much going on. Wow, can’t believe they are targeting Lake Norman. No where near the city. But there is a lot of money there now, so maybe the rumors are true. They said that is what they were planning to do, hit the wealthy suburbs.

    • taw46 says:

      And I looked, it is on Twitter about a “peaceful” protest in Mooresville tonight.

      • Somebody says:

        Well I hope for the sake of Mooresville it is just, that a peaceful protest. Mooresville is a small town and doesn’t have anywhere near the police force a city like Charlotte has.

        When my daughter called I immediately thought about the video of that man the other day saying they were going to take it to the suburbs. I never imagined in a million years that Mooresville would be targeted, you have to drive past so many other suburbs to get up there???

        • Somebody says:

          ARGH……punctuation is HARD…….and I haven’t even been drinking… brain is just moving faster than my fingers I guess???

        • taw46 says:

          If they were going to have protests in the suburbs, I thought sure it would be SouthPark. Major money there. Beautiful place.

            Will people be locked and loaded? Are the domestic terrorists puppet masters hoping for that?Will they manipulate an angry youth to be dumb and lose his life to further an agenda? Makes me sad that these kids are being played.

      Wouldn’t surprise me. Soros probably paid 20 million to rent 5 buses for an afternoon and they’re going to put them to good use.

    • taw46 says:

      Somebody, no need to worry any longer, protest march is over. Only about 100 people, probably all locals. All races, ages, everyone was nice and shook hands of policemen and thanked them. Guess Soros couldn’t get the buses rolling.

      • Somebody says:

        I was just coming to post that the Mooresville protest just ended and it was peaceful. They prayed and then peacefully marched through downtown lead by the deputy police chief. At the end they said that they wanted to set a national standard tonight that they can have a peaceful protest.

        They coordinated with the local authorities and all went well!!

      • Somebody says:

        Taw thanks for sharing that link. I watched the entire thing, it was indeed a very peaceful protest and yes people of all ages and races participated. I liked the one pastor near the end when he said that the blood that runs from our veins is the same color, how true.

        It was actually a very nice community event and everyone shaking hands with the police officers at the end was heart warming. That little town truly did set the standard for a peaceful protest tonight!!

        Also, I’m breathing a big sigh of relief……I know my daughter is 30, but she’ll always be my baby.

        • taw46 says:

          I understand, I would be worried as well, especially given what happened for two nights. And yes, I agree, what a nice community. It reminds us that the protestors are a tiny minority and the majority of us want peaceful, safe communities. Alas, we aren’t the ones the media talks to.

    I often look at people I do not know on tv/movies and have an olfactory sensation. I like Micheal Caine but he smells like a musty sock. Channing Tatum smells of health. JLo is spicy sweet.
    Hillary smells like Taboo.

    I am not a real parent. The older brat gets the more I become the immature older brother instead of a disciplinarian great uncle. I am an ass, but I willl not permit this child to board the pity train. It can be a choice(not always). Her mom had a yuuge party for her little sister on her birthday. Ten years nary a gift. She invited pup to her sister’s party. No way in hell I let that go unchecked. We talk. I try to give her room for all her emotions. She matters to me. I believe in her. I let her know.
    Thank God for Taekwondo(red belt one stripe) and ballet. So much I do not know how to reach. The being active and knowing her own body helps. Megan Fox wrote a piece on PJ Media on not buying kids smart phones. I grew up in a time and place whence we played unrestricted outside. Almost country. We built shacks, swung from vines. That is not a world baby girl has. Last year there were 3 alerts from the school about attempted lurings of young girls walking home from school.
    We do play dates but it gets old entertaining. I bought the iPhone 6 plus for the face time. I don’t want a phone glued to her ear. They all do face time. What are you wearing tomorrow? We play basketball a few hours a week in backyard she has lots of activities but there are still hours where she should not have structure. Face time when limited allows her to hang out. I wish I could just say go play. The pool, I have dealt with looks about her swimsuit from those wearing drapes. Fine dress in 90 degree weather in black head to toe cloaks, but do not dare evaluate my pest. She has a positive self image. No outside food allowed at pool no smoking in the whole park. 500 fine for smoking. Not enforced with the cult. Excuse is they don’t understand. Huh? Cigerette red circle line is no smoki g in any language.
