"Point of Order..."

Trump spoke about the nightmare world of the American Inner cities during his run. He was the only one that regularly did. He said "what did" Blacks "have to lose " by voting for him. This since the plight of inner city folks happened mostly "on the democratic watch".

Well no not entirely, but still. He said that he'd "do" something.

One thing that stays with me that he said, "...Blacks deserve better". Granted he didn't mean it. Still the words were said. 13% of Blacks did vote for him behind that. I actually don't blame them. If only he meant it. If only 'any' politician meant it.

It occurred to me that like "Only Nixon could go to China". Perhaps this flawed reviled man is the only one, if the Angels lead him, The only one that could actually address the old wounds of this country. 

We are in a profoundly frightening, and unique period in our history, and this man is a wild card. Wild cards sometimes do the right thing if only by accident. I'm trying to see the possibility of light in our so very dark situation.

We as a nation just accept that a portion of our country will always have a body count of a minor war...period. It stays with me that only Trump brought that up in that way. Sometimes the Devil tells the truth to shame the Angels.

Stay Tuned.


  1. I've never believed Trump is the fiend the left have apparently convinced themselves he is. To me he looks like merely an asshole magnate who wants power, not Satan incarnate as they seem to imagine. He comes off more like Berlusconi than Hitler. He might manage to deliver some jobs, or he might accelerate our destruction - perhaps both, in some bizarre combination. In any case, it's past due time to dump the neoliberal globalist economics and military interventionism that Clinton represented.

    Even if he tries to deliver some make-work infrastructure projects like highway-building, as promised, he might not be able to. The USA is now 20 trillion dollars in debt. So he may wind up just being the bag-holder for his predecessors.

    There is no left left this country. I suspect the core constituency of the Democrats are the well-to-do, masking their economic self interest behind a facade of social justice and fake concern for minorities. The real issues of our time are economics and class warfare against a background of general decline, not a rehash of civil rights struggles against a background of wealth and progress, like NPR keep trying to pretend it is.

    One good thing at least has come from this election: it is now clear that a large proportion of the population no longer trust the news media or believe what they tell them. This vote of no confidence is well earned and richly deserved, IMHO.


  2. I agree. Trump was the most defeat-able candidate in the history of this country...maybe any country. I'm no Hillary hater, but it seems most everyone else was. So naturally they put her up against a guy that's political poison to rational any constituency.

    Naturally he won.

    Gee what happened? Humm well you fielded the "Bride of Frankenstein" against a Nazi Daffy Duck. Hell I was tempted to vote for Daffy over her.

    Yes if nothing else this is the final..I hope I hope I hope destruction of Neo-Liberal hell.

    This guy is nuts, and though I panicked, and thought the cattle cars were being readied for the usual suspects. ...of which I am seriously one. I think instead this is going to be a "Three Stooges" movie directed by Dan Quayle on the fabled bad "Brown Acid" while getting a blow job from a pencil sharpener.

    So I'm just going to sit back, and watch Hell on Earth happen for the entertainment of a weary world which is in serious need of a few laughs.
