  2. Yep…we have arrived …and the orange one, whose elevator doesn’t go all the way to the top, and his base are the perfect mirror images of each other.

  3. The collective gets what they deserve. Trashing trump does nothing. Trashing his supporters does nothing. Energizing the vote… There are enough sane people left if they just think a moment—I hope. Maybe…

    • You cannot have it both ways. Either the collective votes are the sane people vote. The founding fathers and framers of the constitution wanted to only let the sane people vote. We have to decide what we want.

      • No, I do not think that works. We have to find a way for all to participate effectively. The problem has been that only a fraction of those who can participate do … and the destructive attitude we have toward political money of the rich people and corporations.

    • Now we are talking! I pay no attention to what Trump says as one must “consider the source.” I do pay attention to what his minions do as they are the ones with the ideas that get implemented.

  4. Indeed. Isn’t it so remarkably ironic (not!) how history repeats itself and repeats itself and repeats itself… and then the people all wonder in bafflement and ignorance asking “Why is this happening to us?” when all along they simply needed to LEARN and thoroughly UNDERSTAND what history has tried to teach them about human nature and what multiple signs and symptoms from our past always proves to be true in the end:

    Megalomaniacs become Authoritarians, then Authoritarians become Fascists, then Fascists become full-blown enemies against humanity and all the people’s freedoms, liberties, and civil rights are surrendered and/or lost… because they did not learn anything from history.

    • I think you mean “we” instead of “they.”

      • Perhaps, but there is absolutely no way possible I can include MYSELF in that “we” group. My entire voting record, my past civil duties and activism track-record unequivocally show that I oppose “excessive power” in one singular person or entity or oligarchy/plutarchy. Diversity and truer equality are two of the best hedges to protect against charismatic con-men who are megalomaniacs and become authoritarians, fascists, and full-blown enemies against humanity. Humility and empathy for the people are a character traits that are SUPER EASY to spot in a man over many months or years. It’s not rocket science. That’s what I support… leaders who lead at the very front of battle-lines and squarely in harms way 80% – 99% of the time. 🙂

  5. I remember from way back in my younger days hearing that we never seem to get the government we need, but most always get the government we deserve. Our current occupant of the White House is proof we should have tried harder to keep other people in this country engaged with the politics. Of course that was a huge effort and we do need a party that really represents the working class and the poor people. Did we ever have such?

    • Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt
      That is about all.
      Others like Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Obama, Andrew Jackson and a few more campaigned on representing the poor and working class but I don’t think it worked out that way.

    • At one time, for a while, but no longer.

  7. Another factor in all this is apathy. We here all feel pretty much alike in this and there’s a whole other group who feel the total opposite. But there’s an even larger group who are apathetic and totally uninformed about politics. This apathetic group is likely to swing right, as they will vote for whom a friend tells them to or perhaps a spouse. They don’t care or think on their own because they don’t care enough about the repercussions.
