We could have had President Carson.......
With vice president Kasich, or vice versa.
In any case. Two reasonable and honorable men, even if Republican
How did we get Trump?
The Democratic National Committee created him, with the enthusiastic co-operation of the Main Stream Media, as a caricature of a “candidate” so that The Hillary could claim her rightful position as National Matriarch without the appearance of an a actual coronation. Much as Bernie Sanders was created as an “opposition Candidate” so that the democratic selection of the Clinton Foundation Inc would not appear to be the oligarchic choice of the Washington and Wall Street Elite. (can't you just picture the Mad Men of the political and economic elite deciding mirthfully that Bernie was a “Micky Mouse” candidate that would be perfect to take a dive for the Dem nomination, and oh wow! Who better for the Repubs to offer up than Donald Duck!)
When the Republican primaries were making their selection,the Media had nothing bad to say about Trump, in fact they were generous in their description of his business empire and his Art of Deal making. They helped him gain the Repub nomination as the perfect Clown to emerge from the Republican Clown Car and be disposed of as the blow hard representative of the worst comedic villain reality TV had to offer, the perfect Deplorable for The Virtuous Heroine Hillary to vanquish.
The Basket of deplorables had other ideas
Think about it.
I've been somewhat bemused about how to express myself on Our Salon since Trump's Election
I know many of the bloggers here think of me as a member of the basket of deplorables who voted for Trump, and let me be very clear, I AM.
And yet, far from hating this clump of progressives in the Our Salon community, I like you guys, and actually enjoy reading the stuff that gets posted here.
What gets very tiresome is the mindless blind spewing of hatred toward anyone who doesn't agree with the agenda that Obama set and meant to pass on through Hillary/the Clinton Foundation.
To be perfectly clear, I would have voted against Hilary if the devil himself were the alternative.
Now that we have the lesser of two evils installed, I'm more than willing to discuss how to control him.
With a little less hatred on both sides, we could be celebrating the inauguration of President Carson, the first Black president.
I will simply delete any mindless spewing about my deplorable outlook, take it for granted that at this point of my career of posting my works of art and thought on Our Salon, I view it as no more than washing pigeon droppings off the bridge that COULD connect us in thoughtful discussion of our joint “Donald” problem.
I welcome your thoughtful comments
Update: Pigeon Droppings
Apparently we need a remedial course in basic communication
While it is enjoyable to prattle back and forth and trade insults like toddlers, thispost is an attempt at serious discussion of a serious problem. I've therefore transferred the "Pigeon Droppings" from the comments into the body of the blog so that they may serve as examples of what would otherwise be fun and games, but break up the flow of thought for those who actually are attempting to communicate across a great ideological divide and do not speak "asshole"(Not a problem for me, I'm quite fluent)
besides, I can't just delete these "gems" without holdig them up for inspection.
Sorry. This dreck doesn't merit any more of my time.
