The $1M dollar question of what does Trump's base (mostly white folks with high school diplomas) have in common with Donald Trump in large enough numbers that they would make up his base?

The answer may be this - after studying the 200 people arrested so far in the January 6th insurrections, nearly 60% of the people facing charges related to the Capitol riot showed signs of prior money troubles, including bankruptcies, notices of eviction or foreclosure, bad debts, or unpaid taxes over the past two decades. These people seem to have a lot in common with Trump: Bankruptcies, being sued for money owed and stiffing creditors.

Hmm

What loser doesnt want to win while losing? King Kon is a master of winning with fewer votes, coming out of bankruptcies with a bag of money, and enjoying adulation for being a complete a$$hole. He is a shining Star!

I'm snowed-in at the moment here in the south Sound. I'm sure NW_Ponderer is in the same boat as we only live 15 miles apart. Piccy taken out of my kitchen window.

My hope for Donald Trump is for him to spend the rest of his days in court, spending money on lawyers to defend him. smile

Don't leave out those downwardly mobile white males that couldn't even manage a high school diploma, who feel victimized as they are not doing as well as their parents did without education or training!

I apologize for misquoting Firesign Theater! Forgive me!

It should have been:
Quote:
"Well that's OK cause I'm not Joe."
"and He's not Ed"(pointing at Joe)
"Hey fella, how about bending a couple in the dooda room, if you catch my meaning!"
"If ya get my drift!"

I may have misquoted the spelling of the Dooda room, as it is more likely Doo-Dah room. In my defense, there may not be actual notarized transcripts of all Firesign Theater purformances!
Quote:
Who Am Us Anyway?
What do the following lines have in common?

"Why he's no fun, he fell right over."
"But it's really great s***, Mrs. Kresge."
"The department of redundancy department."
"Let's bend a couple in the Doo-Dah Room."
"You must mean the Old Same Place."
"What's all this brou-ha-ha?"
"May I take your hat and goat?"
"I don't care about your private life or what his name is."
"What's the bird's-eye low-down on this caper? Whatever that means."
"I ought to beat your brain out!"
"Rocky Rococo at your cervix."


we could start a thread for all those ex-stoners out there, who used to mainly communicate using Firesign phrases, if ya get my drift...

My favorite routine was the encounters between "civilization" and the Native Americans.

Quote:
CONQUISTADOR: Welcome to New Spain! This is your new Father - Father Corona.
FATHER CORONA: Pax vneuti nicutm! down on your knees, now! D'ye recognize what I'm holidn' over your head, lads?
INDIAN: It's a Cross. The Symbol of the Quartering of the Universe into Active and Passive Principles.
FATHER CORONA: God have mercy on their heathen souls!
CONQUISTADOR: What the Father means is - what is the Cross made of? Gold! Have you got any?
INDIAN: No.
CONQUISTADOR: What about the Seven Cities of Gold? Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas?
SECOND INDIAN: This is Gold.
CONQUISTADOR: What's that?
INDIAN: Corn.
SPANISH SOLDIER: Corn! Now we can make tortillas!
ANOTHER SPANISH SOLDIER: We been waiting for this for hundreds of years!
THIRD SPANISH SOLDIER: I just invented tacos!

Speaking for the great white father in Washington and all the American people, let me say we respect you savages for your native ability to instantly adapt and survive in whatever Godforsaken wilderness we move you to. Out there. Sign here.
