    Bye Bye Bernie

    Post  trombettista_vecchio on Wed Apr 20, 2016 12:26 pm

    I am heartbroken. Senator Sanders' campaign has crashed, and with it, my opportunity to cast a positive vote. Once again, I'll just be voting for the Democratic slate against Republican ideology that is repugnant to me. That's not nearly as uplifting as voting for somebody who actually shares one's values.

    Nobody believes that the Paul Ryan House is going down, so a Democratic President's primary job will be to veto Republican bills. Let's hope Hillary Clinton is more reliable to do that than her DINO husband was

    Bill Clinton signed catastrophic trade bills.

    Bill Clinton signed the repeal of Glass-Steagall.

    Bill Clinton helped dismantle the social safety net and plunged millions of children into horrific poverty.

    Bill Clinton not only signed but actually championed a catastrophic crime bill.

    Bill Clinton all but invented Republican-Lite status.

    And beyond that, I don't like Hillary Clinton at all.

    She doesn't want to pay to send a billionaire's kids to college. What disingenuous crap. Tuition-free doesn't mean free tuition. It means tax-funded tuition. If we can get billionaires to actually pay their taxes. then they're obviously entitled to that tuition.

    She wants to hold firearms manufacturers liable for gun crimes. That's exactly the same as blaming Cadillac for a hit and run homicide.

    She wants to crack down on prescription opiates. What has she said about protecting people on pain control regimens?

    Hillary Clinton is, essentially, a pandering b!tch. And because her opponent will be a Republican, I have to and I will vote for her. And it will make me sick to my stomach.

    This is an interesting election year, if one is into that shit. Well, I have been since I can remember which is when Ike ran for his second term against Stevenson, maybe? "Adlai" was a funny name to a little kid which I was then. My parents were net neutral with my father always supporting the R's and my mother always voting the D's "Just to cancel him out" was her joke to me. I remember buttons with "I Like Ike" on them in our house.

    So Bernie is being screwed by the D establishment but that's nothing new. At least Bernie has some charm. I like his accent and his bearing. Sort of like the elderly uncle you had that would give you cigarettes and booze when you visited as a teen. Maybe some pot or hash.

    I can't stand to look at Hillary and her voice is one of the worst sounds available on radio or TV. Her R counterpart is Rafael Cruz, senator with Tay-Hoss. This critter is about the most repulsive humans ever to seek national public office. He and Hillary could end up singing a duel on an endless loop in Hell.

    If the R establishment screws Trump and inserts one of mongoloid mouth-breathers like Romney or Rubio or Kashits, I will write in Trump for prez and Bernie as his VP. A real New York City ticket, motherfuckers.

    When I listen to Hillary deliver a campaign speech I'm reminded of my 6th grade teacher's loud and intolerable shrill voice. It's awful.

    Lot's of interest over Trump but there is no way Hillary is going to lose. I remember the last election where many people thought Romney had a good chance. He had no chance. Too many entitlement programs out there for voters to give up. Plus I think Trump has risen to popularity too soon. The Republicans really need to just drop this abortion issue. It's killing them. Cruz wants women who've been raped to not be allowed an abortion. Seriously?

    Shit's just getting warmed up. Notice Trump's starting to make statements about the cross-dresser bathroom laws and changing the GOP platform on abortions. The Cruze conservs are going batshit and the Libs have remained silent. Trump has established alien residency in millions of heads. Here in liberal Maryland, Hilary draws a thousand to a rally. Cruz had about 300 in a townhall in an American Legion building in the town where I work. Trump held a rally the other evening just west of Ocean City in high school gym that had a rated capacity of 3,500 and drew 10,000. This in a sparsely populated county where you'd get maybe that many total repub votes on an off year election. The greatest elections I remember were the 1968 law and order Nixon win and the 1980 Reagan democrat win. Not implying that Trump is Nixon or Reagan like, but his effect is. If it is Trump and Hilary in the general, I expect lots of firefights. Remember Trump has a buddy named Rudy who was not only mayor or NYC but also a federal prosecutor in that district. The NYPD has (or had) an intelligence infrastructure larger than most countries on this planet and I but the Hil & Bill files are voluminous.
