Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 9:10am (Murakami Whywolf))):

I have intention of dying, I need to make that clear, but:

It's not that I want to die, but I feel overwhelmed by the feeling that there is no place safe. This is exactly the sort of man who killed almost all my family before I was born, and I am not exaggerating—the only reasons he is probably not going to do that to many people within our borders are that his power probably won't be absolute (though the purge from the military of people willing to disobey illegal orders will start soon) and he just doesn't feel like killing a bunch of 'fake Americans' yet.


(You really think I'm being over-dramatic…if so, I hope you're right, but to me this seems as real and plain as that wall in front of you, and the fact that this seems not to be the case for so many of my fellow-citizens, that they will not see what is in front of them—or it is, and they _approve_—makes this a problem going far beyond him.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11am HarktheUmpire:

I don't think he'd start a war with Russia, they'll get along really well. I think he's much more likely to start mimicking Putin's politics and poses a much greater threat to America domestically than to the rest of the world. That's actually the only consolation, if a grim one: if he really is an isolationist that might give the rest of the world a breather. If you want to know what the future of America looks like, I think you should look at Russia.

@ (Murakami Whywolf))): consider what Putin does when he breaks promises (which he does on a regular basis, as the economy is a mess): scapegoating. Yes, you may have a point. Putin's government tends to blame the West for everything though (they'll have to stop that soon, which will be interesting). I think Trump is likely to blame minorities, so yes, I think you have a point: this could get extremely ugly.

When Meliana read the plagiarized Michelle speech, it was the loudest dog whistle in history, and only the fascists heard it.

On the other hand, rule by narcissistic, cruel, tasteless, sexually predatory, sociopaths has pretty much been the rule for the past eight millenia or so, so why should we have it any better?

Sure, we could certainly feed everyone, allow everyone a modicum of independence through ownership of the machines that do the real work, let human creativity and enjoyment flower…but where would be the fun in that?!

OK, too much of a coincidence not to share, apoligies for its length: Yesterday, walking down 42nd st I saw a single playing card on the ground and took a pic. It was the Jack of Hearts. I sent it to my brother in law who is a big Dylan fan. I mentioned I heard "You're a Big Girl Now" on Shrunken Planet last weekend and that I was to re-listen to Blood on the Tracks...Jack of Hearts is a track on that album as well. My bro-in-law is a Trump supporter and I was trying to send something benign and non-political to counteract the FB posts that my wife has been sharing with me. Later that night, getting out of a cab driven by a Trump supporter who told me he heard Hillary was losing, I got a text from my bro-in-law that his son shoved a deck of cards in his face and said, pick a card, any card....he selected the Jack of Hearts. I took that as a sign that Trump would win.

The same occurred to me, I think Trump can't control himself, will be out of office and Pence will be the President...and he's AT LEAST as scary as Trump.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am Polyus:

@ScottC - I mentioned upthread that I think he is gonna pull a Palin and split when he gets bored. Slightly different scenario, but yeah, he even said "in 2 years" during his acceptance speech. That was a Freudian slip.

it's pretty naive to think the elections aren't rigged.

The specifics of Trump versus Pence mean nothing to me. They are assholes. I expect them to be assholes. Fuck them both.

But the pure base level hate this bullshit riled up and now has validated is past belief to me. Any bets on how soon Muslim or Mexican businesses will be burned? Literally.

Some idiots will set fire to a taco truck and that will be acceptable to some.

I'd trust Pence more with nuclear weapons. He seems like maybe he doesn't particularly want to blow up the world on a vengeful whim. I mean, unless God tells him to, but that seems less likely somehow. Or maybe he's just that slick and is really fucked up under the surface.

I live in a very rural NW community - lots of Trumpenproletariat - lots of farming and timber jobs that don't exist anymore and a traditional population of workers that refused to adapt or simply not of the economic posture to reeducate, retrain - but blame everyone but themselves for all their bad decisions. So, living here, have seen lots and lots visible signs of Trump support. But work and do culture in Portland OR, so assumed mine was an isolated example.
Just gobsmacked - still

Avatar 11:44am Boomis:

@Fuzzy: Agreed. In the end, each party base had their favored candidate: Trump and Sanders. The elite of the GOP, despite their best efforts, couldn't overcome the will of their primary voters. The DNC, however, did ram Clinton through. And, in the end, the will of the people was heard yesterday.

For what it's worth, I de-registered as a Democrat this past summer because of this mess.

Or rather, primaries are just for show, we're getting the candidate they choose for us whether we want them or not......or whether they're actually electable or not
  11:49am ScottC:

the supidest thing about this whole thing is that Trump promised the Rubes all sots of things that he has no constitutional powr to deliver. NAFTA is a treaty. The President can't "cancel" treaties. You watch. Trump is going to sign TPP and then White Collar workers will get screwed to the level of the rest of us. Not to mention that a municipality may no longer have a legal right to protect its water supply. Flint x 100,000. It's called Investor-State Dispute Settlement Provision. You get that - "Investor-State". Investors will have their own country ( not to mention private army ) WE ARE FUCT!
