What will interest me today

  • After watching the political, financial and media elite coagulate around Hillary!™.
  • After watching The Donald Trump Show.
  • After watching the complete and utter denial that any other choices exist by the party apparatchik.
  • It will be interesting to see how many reject the common wisdom.

How many don't vote.
How many vote "other".

This election has been:

Between "two" of the most untrustworthy candidates ever put forward by the two main parties
The most intellectually bereft that I can remember.
The most divisive.
The most "mememememe" by the respective candidates. Behaving as if we are electing the next "Great Dictator".
Utterly vile.

Who has been excluded from this farce?

Us and our worthless hopes and dreams.
Divisiveness has been driven like a stake into our still beating hearts.
When this has not worked, menaces have been replaced by ridicule.
Whatever the result "the frothing at the mouth partisans" on both sides will be enabled. We are in for four ridiculously long years.

I don't think in all my travels that I have seen anything [political] quite so depressing and as for foreign policy it was between which candidate could be the most bellicose. "American Exceptionalism" received another overdose of amphetamines.

How many will have resisted giving this electoral circus unmerited support?

How much more money will be sucked in next time to bolster a deliberately divisive, corrupt and rigged system?

How much longer will we allow ourselves no choice having been reduced to reliable voting blocks based upon wealth, race, gender and sexuality. Nothing depresses me more than:

Such and such a race will yada, yada.
Women who do not vote for a woman are yada yada.

When the hell will we be treated as thinking rational adults? Our intelligence has been battered mercilessly for decades, it will take decades more to treat the damage done.

Ra ra ra, vote the least bad!

Hell no.

This is the best quote and hoped-for plan to emerge from this knuckle-dragging circus freak show. The two best performers, Bernie and Jill, have been carefully ushered to the sidelines and their cheerleaders alternately condemned, ejected, or solicited as circumstances demanded.

My vote is for Jill but hope that Trump will win, so that the drainage project can begin.

I expect Hillary to win, by hook or by crook. The one upside I see in her over Trump is that she enters office a lot closer to impeachment than he would. Opening the Clinton crime family can of worms with Congressional subpoenas could very well lead to a Nixon waving from the helicopter moment within a couple of years. Tim Kaine has all the leadership potential of a used Kleenex, so the moment of Democratic Party collapse could then be nigh.

Don't blame me for trying to find a silver lining, at least.

But it would give me great satisfaction to wipe that smug smile off her face.

We'd have to bring back that Hillary "Downfall" spoof to get an idea of what that would be like.

You're everywhere and nowhere baby, that's where you're at
Going down a bumpy hillside, in your hippy hat
Flying across the country, and getting fat
Saying everything is groovy, when your tires are flat

We were so completely screwed over by the Democrats, from top to bottom, that I'd like to see the party destroyed.

PUMA.
