TRUMP VISITS MURPHYS

DSC08008 (Copy)Imagine my surprise when I found out my best friend Jim is related to Donald Trump. The resemblance is pretty startling. And he has gone gung ho, preaching the merits of a Trump presidency.

DSC08006 (Copy)Personally, I think Trump decided to run as a lark and now he can’t insult enough people to get himself out of the election. He’s sort of stuck. This trumper doesn’t agree.

DSC08005 (Copy)Jim is quite an actor himself. He’s convinced the Trump hairstyle will become the rage as his popularity grows, so he did a pretty good imitation of the hair, the scowl, the whole persona. I get all these emails asking to sign petitions against Trump. I refuse to sign because I think Trump and Sanders have shaken up our corrupt establishment and I’m just cheering on the sidelines.  I hope he wins the Republican nomination since Kaisch doesn’t have a chance. Then the party of obstruction can hold their noses to vote Republican.

Meanwhile, I’ll vote for a sensible, sincere, non billionaire, Sanders, who has the heart of the people and started this whole revolution. Go Sanders. I hate the vilification of Hillary that is going on. She is no worse than most of the beltway wheelers and dealers, but they vilified her when she was a First Lady and they continue to do so now. It is ugly. We need someone clean, like Sanders.

And, just for the record, Jim is not really related to Donald Trump, but he is a supporter.

LIBERALISM IS DEAD?

R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., founder and editor of the American Spectator, claims liberalism is dead. It looks to me like the Republican Party is in disarray, befuddled and crying out for help. Asking Mitt Romney to step in and diss Trump. They have two presidential candidates who have the lowest voting records and attendance in Congress, Rubio has produced NO legislation and missed 35 per cent of the votes on bills in congress and Cruz has the third worst attendance and missed 24 per cent of votes in congress. (Republican Lindsay Graham, is in second place, having missed 28 per cent of the votes.)  And, their leading candidate continually has a problem with the truth? The party hopefuls are confessing to hold their nose if they have to support Cruz. Tyrrell sizes up President Bill Clinton saying “He did little to resuscitate liberalism.”   He may not have resuscitated liberalism, but he turned the party progressive. He got the country moving. Jobs were soaring, the biggest national debt in history, at that point, left by Reagan, was paid off. Clinton poured surplus money into social programs that conservatives had “borrowed”from like Social Security. And he left us with a balanced budget, and a huge surplus. Then Bush spent it all on a war started with a lie. His Vice President, Cheney claimed, “…deficits don’t matter.” Huh!  And, now Tyrrell for the second time is declaring that the Democratic Party is a relic?  In his words, “It is astonishing that so few Americans-even conservatives-recognize it.” Maybe it is the Republican Party that needs an autopsy.  People are tired of a do-nothing congress controlled by conservatives. People are tired of conservatives starving institutions like the Food and Drug Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency, and The United States Forest Service so they can’t do their jobs. People are tired of a party that denies the very existence of science. Looks to me like revolution in the country and we have Trump and Sanders to thank for that.
