No takebacks

Before posting the contemptuous crap-dumpling picture meme of white trash who voted Trump on Twitter or Facebook, always remember to type “love trumps hate.”

Heard today on Fox radio news after listening to the Penn State game: A march on Trump Tower in NYC by Michael Moore and “a cast of thousands.” Moore promised the people would not allow Trump, who was “illegitimate,” to take office.

No takebacks. No reversals. HRC lost her alleged “firewall states.” Unless you actually want a constitutional crisis, the US government to fall and for you to be regarded as indistinguishable from those who threatened Barack Obama with the same thing over the last eight years.

No #calexit. And beating people over the head with the Brexit borrowed symbolism of safety pins won’t win a revolution. If you use your head, hard at this point, it’s like asking everyone, every one of the good people, that is, to wear an arm band, so they can know who to cluster with in public against the bad people. Quite the ideal. And when you’re finished with that you’ve found you’ve lost your moorings.

The culture of lickspittle is not fertile ground for cultivation of a revolutionary army.

Eat your plate of bugs and worms. And if you think the song is about you, it’s not.

    Continuing the “no take-backs” theme, did you see the look on Trump’s face when Obama played nice during the tour of the White House? Obama kind of looked like a guy who’s put in his notice with HR, planned a nice vacation, and will start a new job with better benefits, better pay, fewer hours, and whole lot less stress. Trump looked like a guy who just realized he might have taken on more than he can handle, the dog that finally caught the car.

    What will be interesting is how Trump tries to resolve the differences between his campaign promises and the plans the Republican Congress has had for demolishing benefits programs for years now. At least some of the Trump vote has already pledged to hold him to his promises and go bonkers if he doesn’t fulfill them.

    What will he do when they don’t shout his name in adulation?

    Kind of. I’m sure Obama’s heart was broken on Tuesday night. But I bet he got up in the morning and decided, “Ah, life’s too short and this guy’s orange hair will be white in one year or less.”

    I’d also bet more than even money that at some point years from now, when he writes another book, he’ll let us know that if there was anyone who could blow the election, it was Hillary Clinton. I was never convinced he thought much of her or her husband.

    Trump will be screwed if he lets all the GOP establishment, those he just spent a year trashing, worm their way back into his administration. And they’re definitely trying it. You have to admire a group of people like that for their complete lack of pride and anything even remotelt resembling civilized value.

    I think the Republican establishment types are running back to Donald because, on some level, they think they can control him now that he’ll be in office. There were 16 other candidates for the nomination, including governors of larger states like FL and OH, and a senator or two. None of those people were able to able to stand up to him or slow him at all. I don’t think it will go well, since trashing the establishment types was a large part of his appeal during the campaign.

    As for the Clintons, my main problem is that, for people who graduated Yale Law School, they have an incredibly stupid tendency to hand their enemies the metaphorical club for beating them over the head.
