Boring is something we all need more of after Trump.
I understand that he’d like to form his own political party known as the “Patriot Party”.
I wish him all the best with it’s formation – it sounds like a wonderful idea.
Republicans currently make up approximately 25% of all Americans. Assuming that Trump’s Patriot Party would pull the majority of its members from republican ranks, that would leave BOTH resultant parties incapable of achieving anything approaching “relevance” ever again – just like the old “Whig” party of the 1850s, from whence the republicans originally sprang!
It seems like the purest form of poetic justice, to me!
As I’ve followed your postings for a while I’m aware that you’re in little danger of the Trumpian “rabbit hole”, but an additional warning is never wasted – I’ve had good friends attempt to send me Trumpian Trash – people I would NEVER SUSPECT of having lost their minds (of course, It couldn’t because I’m a poor judge of character – oh no – so it must be THEIR FAULT, right?)
I’ve never lived in New York, though I had a good friend who lived in the Finger Lakes region (the only time our friendship was tested was when I once suggested a New Yorker was a New Yorker, no matter where they lived – gads, did he blister my ears!)
Of course I knew the comment was stupid; even here in New Mexico (I live just south of Santa Fe and referring to someone as a Roswellian is an insult, and NOT because of the “spaceship” thingy, either – there’s a whole nest of republicans down there, as well) so I deserved the censure, I got!
I would! I always thought that Spock looked better in a Van Dyke, myself!
Except, John, “they” have no clue as to what you’re referencing when you speak of the “Red Badge”, because their education never got much beyond “Cat in the Hat” and they never understood THAT reference, either.
The rabbit hole of Trumpian stupidity into which you are in danger of descending is both deep and dangerous – careful! Remember, it’s like fighting with pigs; you really shouldn’t attempt it as it serves no purpose, you’ll end up dirty and you’ll annoy the pigs!
(Having said that, I WILL ADMIT to fighting with “pigs” myself. As long as you can avoid being eaten, it IS fun, even if pointless.)
The first step in producing an “enemy” is to turn them into an “other”! Although the quickest way to reduce someone to an “enemy” worthy of killing is to have that person try to kill YOU!
Of course, it’s ALL part of the feminist’s master plan, get rid of Biden so that Vice President Harris becomes president – good thinking Ms. Greene – not EXACTLY the conspiracy you’d planned upon but one IS just about as good as another – right?
You may be right on the BLM protestors not wearing masks; I wasn’t paying attention to THAT particular protest coverage , but the coverage, sparse though it may be in the left-leaning news sources of the Trump rallies – they never fail to show (and comment on) the lack of masking at Trump rallies (other than behind Trump in some cases).
When the cameras pan over the people Trump is facing, you can’t help but notice an almost complete LACK of facial coverings in his audiences (this is also why the Trump people banned cameras from behind the podiums at his rallies).
I seem to remember an impromptu news conference held at Trump’s Florida club where the audience, pulled from his guests at the club were given masks so they would be in compliance with current Florida guidelines – none were wearing masks, beforehand, and some refused to don the masks even after they were given them!
Gamma, it seems to have worked for Germany – granted, they STILL have neo-Nazis running around but they easily control them – and the “republicans” in America no longer have a binding creed other than to pledge undying devotion to Trump – their ONLY guiding principal is to support Fascism in all its forms.
There are hundreds-of-thousands if not millions who claim protection under the thoroughly tattered banner of the G.O.P. and the ONLY way to root out those denizens of hate is to ban the party which purports to support them – seeking them out individually will simply take too long!
The republican party was born from the death throes of the Whig party in the 1850s. The dissolution of the Whigs also produced the “Know-Nothing” party which was a terrorist party somewhat akin to what we’re seeing being engendered in what I refer to as the Trumpian party.
Now the republican party is undergoing the same fission that produced them in the first place.
For what it’s worth, I will point out that the dissolution of the Whig party directly led to the attempted formation of the Confederate States of America – calls for secession are growing louder here even as we speak.
Oh, I don’t know, Yipp – ever since I was a child growing up in Oklahoma in the Forties, my favorite question was “Why?”
I’ve never outgrown the desire to understand “why” anyone does anything.
After a multiple of careers including in the medical field dealing with the mentally unbalanced, I have discovered that the answer to “why” can be both surprising and illuminating.
