At first I did not like him because I thought anybody that would wear their hair like that is nuts . After a while I got used to his hair and even liked it. If you blur your eyes and pretend like he is 27 . Reminds you of painting that you would see on the cover of a women's romance paperback novel. A swashbuckling romantic figure from the 1700s perhaps. So now I don't mind his hair.

It was refreshing to see someone that did not kiss ass on the debates so I liked that. I like what he says about China. I don't know about the Moose Limb thing.

He said he wanted do away with Obama care because it's a disaster I don't know about that I don't use that. The thing that got me though was what he was going to do about health care. The answer he gave when asked was flip. He said nothing just a bunch of word noise. He did say Obama care hurt all of his friends and that some of them had to go out of business. Then he went on and said in the demeanor of a bad actor playing Al Capone
"hey!, I've got a big heart, you know. I want to help those in need Im a big hearted slob ,hey ! etc. blah blah blah"maybe it was not like a bad performance of Al Capone but like Rodney Dangerfield I don't get no respect ,hey! you know ! hey !, like that.

So I don't think he lies on purpose but he is deceitful and not showing all of his cards. That makes him a politician. So I don't know what you think?

he is big on the fear factor , which is insulting to anyone who can think

I want him to win, just to see all the butthurt. I remember the butthurt from racists when Obama won - and then won again. That was glorious. But now I feel like it's the left's turn again. The panic about Trump possibly winning is just like the panic about Obama possibly winning. With Trump, it's "He's a misogynist racist douchebag!". With Obama, it was "He's a kenyan Muslim liar!". I doubt he'll do much damage to america, just as I did with Obama, and he might even do some good - he's promised to stop common core maths, which is a fucking joke.

I don't see how anyone's outlook on politics or the country could get any more cynical. Why not Trump?

what I got from this:

yope knows nothing about politics, but admits it at least.


I fail to see how this is any different from the majority of voters.

Trump, while a disaster in terms of image, would probably not be that bad of a president. Anyone who's "scared shitless" overestimate the power and reach that the president has.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Actually a little surprised you aren't fully behind him considering how much you love rambling.

OT: Dude is a child taking advantage of other people's fears (including his own) by waiving around a big stick. If he won, I'd somehow be even more embarrassed to live in this country.

the American dream is impossible. It's gone. If it's not gone now it's going to be gone at least. There will be big changes. We cannot go on like we have been I'm going to repeat that,.. we cannot go on like we have been. It is physically impossible. The oil isn't gone yet but it's going to go. When it is gone we will have to find something else to burn in the internal combustion engine. This is going to change everything and it's not that far away. Oil is the life's blood of the American dream. Everything that we think of as the American dream relies on it.

When the oil is finally drained out that stinking desert we won't have to be over there and worry about the religious fanatics as much because we won't be bothering them because they don't have anything that we want.

Are you any relation to jerry. How about Sgt. Garcia from zoro ?
#15
Maybe Jerry Garcia. I had a dream about him before I actually knew who he was.
He was performing at a concert and I enjoyed it.

That being said, I don't think I've ever heard any of his music.

Hysterical citizens, politicians, journalists, celebrities, special interests, and activists formed a firing squad around Trump, who decided to not show up, and they didn't have the sense to not shoot.

-is what the History books will say about the melodrama surrounding Trump, anyway.
#17
Trump has gone batshit mad since doing reality tv. Watch some of the interviews he did in the 80's and he comes across more well spoken, respectful and educated rather than this insulting, immature and racist circus act you see today.

But even in the 80's he still was a dickhead businessman though with dickhead ideas. Like in the video below where he says oil producers should pay America 25% of the product they sell to America just because...yeah right mate.

I'm not even opposed to what he says about trade. I just don't think he could run a country in any sort of reasonable way.

And his rhetoric is just geared towards the lowest common denominator.

His running the media this election cycle has been brilliant and amusing as fuck given the fact that he wont win.

he's a politician in the same way as most of his peers: a popularity chaser using poor rhetoric to capture the attention of human cattle.

I know this isn't the thread for it but...

Let's say that magically every drop of oil suddenly disappears from the face of the Earth and we already have all the technology to meet our power needs without any serious financial or organizational strain. Electricity, transport, heating - all of that is already taken care of somehow.

Well our species would still take an absolutely apocalyptic nose dive into the ground. Oil isn't just good for the internal combustion engine and all that shit. Where do you think all the synthetic polymers come from? Your clothes, your appliances, large portions of your house and car? Where do you think medicine gets the base for most of its drugs and apparatus? Hell, most of the custom materials we use, you think we just throw some rocks and sticks into a furnace and hope for the best?

It's not the end of our species if all of that disappears, we were doing alright even before the industrial revolution when industrial chemistry evolved. But the living standards and global population from back then were veeeery different from what we have now.

I'm guessing we'll stop burning oil a fair bit before there's not enough left to make the clothes on our back but hell son, the American dream ends well before you have a chance to think about which car you'll drive to the store or some banal shit like that.

As I live in the UK I would find it piss funny if Trump was elected president

I would like to hear what he has to say about David Cameron, but I wouldn't find it so funny when he ran the American economy into the ground and dragged the rest of the world with him.
#24
Fun Fact:

A large number of people (over 570,000) in the UK signed a petition to ban Trump from entering the country.

Now, if that's not just a ginormic waste of time, I don't know what is.
#25
he's a master at playing the media. better than any presidential candidate ever.

i'd be absolutely terrified if he became president, and i'd renounce my citizenship and move back to the UK
it's all just coming back

it's all coming back to me

Trump for president and Boris for PM

Boris for PM?

I'm...struggling to imagine what that would be like.
#29
Boris at least knows his politics, even if he pushes an even more ridiculous level of personality politics. He could probably extend what our current govt is doing and stretch its failing economic plan out a few years

trump would do as his name does

I know this , all that was in that educational program I was talking about. It does not take magic to disappear. It's going fast is going to be gone. Here, I will say it yet again and maybe it will sink in. It's going fast and it's going to be gone soon without magic. Peak oil production in the United States was reached in 1970. Peak oil production in the OPEC nations is currently peaking. It's all downhill from here. Downhill for the American dream. Downhill for what Trump says about making America great again.
In fairness that could happen in our lifetimes. For America to become super prosperous again like in the 50s and 60s but I don't think it's likely. The whole point is it's all about oil and that's temporary. The people of the future will look back and I wonder what they will think of us.
Personally I could own and drive a car if I wanted one but I do not need one. I can get along without it. It's not because I'm great just because I don't need one don't need the added expense. I have legs and I know how to use them and live in a metropolitan area.

I'm trying to tell you that this isn't an issue of American prosperity. It's a global issue that might turn out to be one of the greatest historical struggles of mankind, not the death of some yank's dream to own a fucking Mustang.
