Via Ace’s sidebar, The GOP Will Learn The Wrong Lessons From Trump.

It’s a decent article but it begs the most important question, will the Establishment folks of the We’re Better and Smarter Than You party admit that they need to learn a lesson from Trump’s popularity?

The answer to that is a resounding, how about you yokels suck our dicks?

All we’ve seen from CNN and Foxnews is that Trump is a huckster (true), and is saying some ridiculous things.

What they refuse to accept is that, while the Establishment pricks have decreed that certain subjects are verboten, the rest of us don’t feel that way.

We see politicians who don’t want to enforce our laws and who don’t have to follow our laws.

Fuck em all. If my choice is any Dem currently even ‘thinking’ about running, Jeb Bush/Rubio/Graham/all the rest and Trump, I’m voting for Trump, if I even do vote.

I’d vote for Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina or even, so help me, Rand Paul.

The first three because I’d like them to win, the last because I don’t want any of the other assholes to win. He’s a little too big ‘L’ Libertarian for me. We’re seeing the fruits of America not being World Police in Ukraine, Syria, Libya, South China Sea and Iran. As we learned twice last century, just because we want the world to leave us alone doesn’t mean they will.

Eh, at this point I’m waiting for M’Shell to run and win. With any and all criticism being racist and sexist, she can’t lose.

Messaging Mishaps – Immigration

Posted: August 16, 2015 by socklessjoe in GOP FAIL

Talk of curtailing illegal immigration has a way of hitting some folks’ “racist” triggers.

Sometimes it’s genuinely the speaker’s fault. But a lot of the time it’s the media lackey (whose significant other works for Democrats, but they are totally neutral) who put a racist-y spin on things.

The hilarious thing about putting the kibosh on illegal immigration is that it would primarily help… immigrants.

And other Democratic constituencies too, like young Af-Ams.

It’s a supply and demand thing.  If you reduce the supply of low-skill labor, wages for existing low-skill labor will naturally rise.  The best thing that could happen to a low-skill (legal) Mexican-American voter is border security.

That nobody in the GOP seems to be able to articulate this is deeply regrettable.

So we see that some of our fine, elected, representatives are coming out against the Iran Deal.

“Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), one of the few potential GOP supporters of the international accord over Iran’s nuclear program, announced Saturday he would oppose the deal…

Jeff Flake is, of course, Arizona’s other senator that hates me.

The problem, of course, is that Obama already sent the deal to the UN, so what the US Congress does is absolutely meaningless.

The EUnuchs are very happy to work with the Iranians,

No wonder that European media outlets are referring to Iran as the “new El Dorado,” the “chance of a century,” and the “last untapped market.”

 

They”re mostly hoping the Iranians will be happy to just kill Jews and still sell their oil to EUnuchstan.

So what does Obama’s decision to make a deal with all manner of secrets and send it to the UN first mean?

It means that what the US Congress has to say is already moot. The Russians, Chinese and EUnuchs will have “voted” and that’s that.

Iran won, we lost.

Get over it.

My hope is that the Iranians don’t get into a nukular war with Israel, I mean, they’re going to get into a nukular war, but I hope it’ll be with the other oil ticks who are busy buying their nukes from Pakistan.

 

I’m Back Baby

Got my new (used) Toshiba with Windows 8. Since I’ve hated every OS since Windows 95, it’s about the same annoying.

I got a good job, I’m pretty excited about it. I did take a job 50 miles away because it looked like the kind of place I wanted. It’s been 2 weeks, and so far so good. My commute doesn’t suck, I make 50 miles in about 45 minutes usually leaving at 5:45am and 4pm for home. I hit 90 at some point pretty much every day. Fairly regularly, a group of us will be cruising and some “asshole” gets in the way, I look down and he’s going 85.

I’m going to try to blog evenings, there’s been a lot I’ve been wanting to blog about, like waiting for Obama’s “Justice” Dept to step ! so we have M’Shell throw her batleth in the ring. That’s going to be funny.

 

I could give two wet farts about Caitlyn/Bruce Jenner.  But I’m amused at how disgusted the other folks in this video are at the suggestion that overly generous social programs can be a disincentive to work.

The fundamental thrust of any libertarian-ish ideology rests on two ideas:

  • That people should be free to pursue their own happiness.
  • To the extent that it can be avoided, nobody else should be compelled to subsidize or participate in another person’s pursuit of happiness.

What individual welfare entitlement programs have to do with being trans or gay or female or black or Martian is beyond my comprehension.  It’s a rather annoying little trick that the Democrats play that if you’re anything other than a WASP then you should clearly be for socialism.  And it’s particularly annoying because Republicans by-and-large let them get away with it.

Hillary just recently said that GOP noise about de-funding Planned Parenthood would “deny access” to women’s health services.  Because everything which is not forbidden is compulsory.

As far as I can tell, nobody on the right said a fucking thing about Hillary’s ridiculous statement.

We’re not even talking about shutting Planned Parenthood down, we’re just talking about the concept that maybe some people don’t want their tax dollars funding a highly politicized criminal syndicate that traffics in baby parts for profit.  If you want to murder babies and sell their organs, do it on your own dime.

But no, that simple, minimalistic argument is beyond the national GOP’s messaging scope.
