An asshole to the very end. And 40% of our neighbors.
I’ve put up our Christmas tree. My daughter was in town so I did it while I had her help.
SiriusXM has a Yacht Rock channel that I was fond of, but they move it from channel to channel about twice a year, and now it is on an upper channel my car radio can’t receive. They seem to treat it as a filler.
Yes, I’ve read it daily since you mentioned it a couple years ago.
From today’s electoral-vote.com :
Trump’s support is incredibly stable. It is never below 41% and never above 43.5%, a tiny band. Fundamentally, there are three groups whose support is completely unwavering, no matter how many lies he tells or how corrupt his administration is. First, there are the angry, resentful working-class white men who don’t like the demographic and economic changes the country has undergone in the past decades. In the 1950s, someone with only a high school education could get a good-paying union job at a factory, raise a family on one income, and feel respected. Those days are gone and these men have definitely noticed it. They think that coastal elites look down on them as a basket of deplorables who cling to guns or religion. There is some truth to that perception. They also think that because Trump hates the people they hate, he will do something for them. So far he hasn’t, but maybe in a second term he will.
Second we have the evangelicals. Mostly what they care is about banning abortion and gay rights, especially same-sex marriage. If put to a vote, they would probably make homosexuality a felony again, as it once was. As long as Trump consistently delivers conservative judges and justices who hold these views, he can do no wrong with them. Did Jesus spend his entire life preaching about the evils of abortion and same-sex marriage? Was that his main message? We’ll check on it and get back to you (eventually).
Third, we have a group that is entirely rational in its unwavering support for Trump: Rich businessmen. What they want is lower taxes for the rich and fewer government regulations on businesses. That tax cut was very sweet. Thank you, Mr. President. If your factory produces some noxious byproduct as a result of its manufacturing process, why shouldn’t you be able to dump it in the local river? After all, nobody but the government and the remaining spotted owls will even notice. This group is afraid that Joe Biden is weak and that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are going to run the show and impose crushing taxes on them and their companies. They don’t give a hoot about Roe v. Wade, since if they get their girlfriends pregnant, they can always fly to Canada to get an abortion there if need be. If a poor Black woman in Mississippi who was raped can’t get one, well, that’s her problem.
There you have it: ignorant bigots and cynical millionaires.
Trump lied to us, he lied to us, and he lied to us. He has nothing but contempt for anyone not a supporter, and only cares about millionaires. He has single-handedly demolished the Republican Party.
I think they should nail his ass. I predict he will flee the country.
Deane, you work so hard at coming up with excuses to vote for Trump.
Well, I finally rescanned so I could get ACE TV on 26.3, and it hardly seems worth the trouble.
My mom’s first reaction was, “Wait and see if it’s a scam.”
I can get 26.1 on my rabbit ears in Milwaukie, but I will have to rescan to pick up 26.3.
I guess we won’t get the skyline cam back. I enjoyed that.
I scanned 23 on my Vizio TV and 8.10 is the same as 8.1, 8.20 is 8.2 and 8.30 is 8.3.
I have said that the only supporters of Trump are ignorant bigots and cynical millionaires. Vitalogy was being charitable when he called them “rubes.”
Well, I’d probably describe Trump as fascistic, but he doesn’t believe in anything but Donald J. Trump.
