As Planes, Trains, And Automobiles Left Town

In order to put today’s article and title into context I will have to digress into a brief explanation for the benefit of my foreign readers. Americans celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November. The next day is known as Black Friday and is a huge shopping day that has morphed into a semi-holiday of its own. Many employers simply grant it as a day off and countless Americans take the day off via other methods.

In this metaphor the Trump campaign is a sinking ship and establishment elected Republicans or those who plan to run for office in the future would be well advised to abandon ship. Let’s look at that today. Continue reading Risk Getting Wet

We Love The Proven Failures And Obsolete

Donald Trump has the habit of referring to himself in the collective. It’s always “We love” we this and we that. My question is who the hell are we? It certainly doesn’t include me. Perhaps he should be truthful for once and say Bubba and I. Many of Trump’s proposals and observation are so ridiculous they are actually humorous. Let’s have a few laughs today.
