Both the Republican and Democrat National Committees seem to be run by nothing but chuckleheads and feeble minded jackasses. The democrats bruit about hiring a known illegal alien for the national campaign staff even though that is a direct violation of the Federal Election/Campaign laws and the rethuglicans insist that Trump formally forfeit his right to run as an independent if he fails to get the rethuglican primary nod.
Why either committee thinks that they are acting in some clever manner is beyond me. The democrats really can run a candidate like Obama or Clinton even if they did eat an undead baby on live TV during the debates. They won't suffer from any penalty except the loss of the almost undecided. Yeah, that's an interesting inane category of democratic voter that is usually so dim that they don't know the candidates, don't know the issues but they always voted democrat before so it doesn't really matter if the whole party has adopted a universal slavery policy for all Americans making less than $150,000 per year, they're still leaning toward a solid vote for the democrat.
Usually at this point in a campaign, we hear about money and who has it and who doesn't. I admit I don't pay any attention to the broadcast news or print media but I haven't heard anybody questioning Trump's campaign warchest status so I figure he has money backing him from somewhere. As far as I can tell, he's about the only rethuglican candidate who meets the Koch Brothers minimum standard for politicians but I'm not sure if that's true. I don't think Trump has exhaled an honest breath in the last 40 years. I can almost see him at his first public address, maybe at the inauguration laughing out loud and saying, "I fooled you suckers A G A I N! You are so stupid! Didn't you bother to check my voting record, never mind who I gave campaign money to for all these decades?"
It looks like we're in for interesting times. It seems that the new 'Klan with a tan' is making inroads on whittling down the number of police. They are getting some support from people concerned that any police officer can shoot and kill any American and it isn't even viewed as a crime or even negligence severe enough to warrant instant and permanent dismissal as a sworn officer on ANY police force.
At the same time, the police and District Attorneys in Texas have locked up a couple of hundred bikers because nine of their number were killed by gunfire. They've been locked up and no pleas for habeas corpus are being entertained while suspicion grows that the cops are the ones that did all the shooting and the killing and most of the bikers were simply caught in the crossfire of cops shooting at anything that moved.
It looks grim. Nobody will pay others to shoot police but there doesn't appear to be any shortage of people willing to do it. The cops have made no friends by stealing innocent traveller's cash without even deigning to charge the innocent traveller with a crime. The police simply steal their cash and pocket it. They literally put it in their own pockets and walk away from the scene of the notcrime.
I think it would be profoundly funny for a Republican to run for President as a Democrat and simply espouse the same exact things that JFK espoused. That would still put him to the right of everybody except Reagan and would turn the table splendidly on all the dim ones and the sharper ones who would find themselves flailing against the catechism of JFK and what MLK said. It would also add a little gravitas to the mind boggling stupidity of Hillary, Sanders and whossname.
Not with a bang but a whimper.
