From the article:

 

No one cared about us until Trump.

 

That's just it; they DID care and they still do care.  (Certainly, they care(d) more than Trump ever will.)  But the problem was that the solutions they were offering, you didn't want to hear.  You wanted to hear exactly what Trump told you: "the world is just fine, nothing is changing, just keep making your popcorn and we'll take care of the rest."  It's the equivalent of daddy coming into your bedroom after you've had a nightmare and telling you there are no monsters hiding under your bed or in your closet.  However, in this case, the monsters are very much real, and they are no longer hiding.

 

Thanks, DD, for the article!  

 

Yeah, there were a few lines that I read from a few of the people that cause me to roll my eyes.   Also, the guy that said that he was conflicted because although he disagreed with Trump's stance on immigration, he believes Trump is a man of God

.  I couldn't help but think that this guy really needed to get out of his bubble.  Trump may be a lot of things but a devout Christian is NOT one of them.  I was raised in church, have relatives who have done missionary work and I don't recognize Trump's brand of Christianity.

I do.  It's the televangelist kind.  Where the guy on TV is getting grannies and rubes to send him their social security checks, while he buys private planes and hookers.

I've forgotten that this type of style has now permeated the pulpit.  I never expected a twenty-something year old man would be taken in by the kind of philosophy that Jimmy Swaggart promoted.

 

 

Why so expensive? Did the side-piece go on the trip too?

 

This sounds like some much needed good news.

^ He really is a monster.  I can't believe we have a minimum of 2 more years of this.  Yeah, he could die, but I've never been the optimistic sort.

 

I'm headed to Temple Israel for Shabbat service tonight.  I dread it to be honest.  The people there have always welcomed me even though I'm an outsider. I hate to see them in so much pain thanks to blind hatred.

Michael Cohen has dropped a November bomb. Thrilled to see it, although none of these revelations surprise anyone about Trump.

I already voted and like early voting and will never go back voting the old way.

I'm tempted to do it myself.

Partially I think it's that unstable, isolated people are being radicalized online.  There was a time when guys like this would have just lived out there lives as drugged out losers. The internet has made it easier for them to find a cause online and to carry out some mission to support the cause (in their minds at least)  One way you can tell they are kind of delusional is that their mission never makes the slightest difference in reality. If anything it drives more people to support whatever or whomever they were against.

 

Just to be clear, I don't absolve any of these people of personal responsibility and they can all hang as far as I'm concerned. If we are going to have a death penalty might is well use it on these mass shooters.

That is a very good observation. They basically are finding things to feed their crazy. I know social media has totally changed my opinion of the American public. About half are complete imbeciles.

I early voted today. I was in line for two hours, by far the longest it's ever taken. We'll see if that means something good on Tuesday. 

Hopefully it means good things. I probably should have voted by mail, but for some reason I want to show up at the polls on election day. I don't even know why, I just feel the need to do it in person this year.

I can understand why. Someone else who was there was saying that this is a day she'd remember forever.

None of the people who run the major Hollywood studios can be called liberal by any stretch of the imagination. 

Having some vocal actors and a few directors and some writers, who also happen to be liberal doesn't constitute an entire industry being that way. The people with actual power to greenlight a movie or a series are almost always conservative and it has been this way going back to the days of MGM and Louis B. Mayer.

 

Many people look at actors and think that they run the industry.  They don't.

 

We've actually discussed this topic in the Movies and Music Thread and lately, also in the Hollywood Sexual Assault/Sexual Harassment thread in the Off-Topic Section.

 

 

 

Despite, the ruling in Georgia, I see the voter suppression handbook is still at work in some states.
