counter trump

For Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the 2018 race was little more than a tune-up for the 2020 presidential campaign. She breezed to re-election by 24 points.

Warren exhibited strength in Massachusetts’s 10 youngest municipalities (Gen X, Millennials).

We can look at who voted for Warren in 2018 to see who might vote for her in 2020 — both in the primary and in the general election.

Most Americans Support Warren’s ‘Ultramillionare Tax’

And we can look at the "anybody but Trump" crowd.

Socialism is NOT An Effective Political Bogeyman!

30 years after the end of the Cold War, Americans don’t view socialism the same way they once did. In 1949, Gallup asked Americans what they thought “socialism” meant. 34 percent of Americans thought socialism signified “government ownership or control” — of businesses, utilities and “everything.”

But when Gallup asked the same question in September 2018, it found that respondents associated socialism with equality (only 17 percent said they viewed socialism as government ownership).

And in 2018, Americans associated socialism with benefits like social security, homeless shelters, food banks, care for the elderly, and universal access to medicine.

Gen-Xers, now in their 40s and 50s, are much more likely to be mid-career, to have responsibilities for small children or aging parents, or to be lost in the swamps of midlife crisis.

Millennials are hot for socialism!

let the trump follies begin

the retard on robo-fussin is doing his "rallies" (a.k.a. follies)

SOME take his utterances as the gospel truth...

most folks (world-wide) see him for the IDIOT that he is...

I pity the fools that flock to his follies.

he certainly has his share of high-profile defenders...

and his speech-writers do seem to stand out...

his loyal toilet twitter followers would eat a mile of his sh*t just too kiss his ass...

and SOME, no doubt, of his followers (the zombies) got brains...

so, by all means, let the trumpster in the dumpster stage his follies...

and GOP TV reports the "alternate facts."

primary election season approaches and republicans are running their cockroaches in coaches...

while the buffoon in the balloon builds his wall...

it breaks the spackle loose in my intestines...

and sends me to the John to dump my mud...

as the the trumpster in the dumpster promotes his widely popular (NOT) idea...

Propaganda time for the trumpster in the dumpster

Propaganda is information that is not objective and is used primarily to influence an audience, often by presenting facts selectively.

Propaganda uses loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response.

At Trump rallies, paid actors are on camera behind him CLAPPING on CUE.

Apparently, the idea came from Russia (and some of the money may have also come "from Russia with Love" -- for Trump's damage to democracy).

Well, the trumpster in the dumpster is out selling snake oil to the rattle snakes!

His CULT FOLLOWING loves him, no doubt.

"North Korea" loves him, no doubt.

However, Trump has NEVER had a 50% approval rating - not EVER.

The number is 40% and NOT the 50% that the trumpster in the dumpster CRAVES.

Reality is not what his cult following, or his FAUX Snews spreads (wipe your shoes off)!

The farmer hauled another load away.
You could tell by the smell it wasn't hay!
