Just in case anyone had any doubt about the quality of the Drumpf's economic team (if such a thing could ever exist):

Quote:
AMONG THE MEMBERS of Donald Trumpís recently announced team of economic advisers is Stephen Moore, a distinguished visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation and co-founder of the Club for Growth, which supports candidates who advocate slashing the tax rates of the top 1 percent.
...
MOORE: Capitalism is a lot more important than democracy. Iím not even a big believer in democracy. I always say that democracy can be two wolves and a sheep deciding on what to have for dinner. Ö Look, Iím in favor of people having the right to vote and things like that. But there are a lot of countries that have the right to vote and theyíre still poor. Democracy doesnít always lead to a good economy or even a good political system.

That's what happens to morons as they see themselves sinking into a pool of shyte. Their only reaction is to threaten, but they're so impotent (ain't no Viagra in the world gonna help 'em) that, cowards that they are, they can't even own up to what they say. So they hide behind lies and delusions so as to justify their stupidity.

I am embarrassed when friends from abroad ask me how someone like Trump could be anything but extreme fringe. Makes me want to move, even though I am pretty sure he can't win.

TIME Magazine's cover story interview answers the question:
Quote:
Trump: Well, Iím running it differently than I did the primaries. I am listening to so-called experts to ease up the rhetoric, and so far, Iím liking the way I ran in the primaries better.

The people who support Trump are generally non critical-thinking types who fit the following basic pattern:

1) They naturally function from a negative rather than positive outlook (they love to hate);
2) They are highly susceptible to propaganda and have been well-taught that the left is evil and the right is divine;
3) Trump is their metaphorical Statue of Liberty, except in the form of a gigantic hand with a raised middle finger.

In this political passion play, facts have no more significance than they have in religions.

LOL

a half full glass of pepsi is just a half full glass of pepsi

it is true the left is evil as proven by your post

and no, not just a large statue but I think rather a god .... the god of large hands

ruminations from the land of the rising confederacy ....
i listened to Mayor Giuliani this morning and have to reconsider whether I am a complete idiot or live in an alternate universe from these folks ... but then I remind myself .... half the people I see and hear are below average intelligence and I know I am above average intelligence .... perhaps that is the clue .... I do live in an alternate universe

How many lies does one have to tell until earning the official title of "Lying Sack of Shyte" - LSS for short?

LSS

I think I will rely on Mindseye N Stein's Theory of Relativity .... for example, if one were to ask my neighbor, she would say Sec Clinton is a LSS and maybe the MVP of LSS (probably because of 25 years of conservative propaganda and Mr Trump says so) .... on the other hand, in the real world, it is clear Mr Trump may be one of the leading all-time contestants in that competition

but then I am a casual observer just passing through

I would agree: the Drumpf is definitely one of the main candidates to the title of ALL TIME LSS.
