The Luck of the Orange…

Posted on: July 2, 2015

You know you are having a bad day when Flo Rida, the guy who won American Idol last year, a HGTV Property Brother (I don’t know them apart), Emmitt Smith, and Macy’s all dump you in the same day.  If Donald Trump was a country song, it would surely have the words, “If it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck at all.”Donald Trump

But for Democrats he’s a godsend.  He’s the best thing since toupees and the marketing of slightly discolored irregular bronzer.  I’d say he’s golden, but that would mean I’m colorblind – he’s just plain old orange.  Making “the Donald” the face of the Republican Party is a face not even a mother could love, but it is a face Democrats will secretly adore.

Come to find out old Donny-boy was nothing more than the Best Boys and Grips on The Apprentice – he was just hired help.  Come to find out, the article he keeps citing as evidence of “illegal drug-dealing Mexican rapists” says nothing close to what he’s alleging.  The article does detail a human rights nightmare, young Central American girls being raped during their long pilgrimages toward America, but the article doesn’t even hint at the fact those committing the rapes are then immigrating to the U.S.  One of the authors of the article says she isn’t sure Trump has even read it.

There are those who will say, “Well, that’s just Donald and you know how Donald is.”  Well no, I don’t.  No, I don’t know how Donald is because I would never imagine a person so willfully vile could be so willfully ignorant and vice versa.

Here’s the real take away for me:  Ideas and accusations like Trump’s aren’t formed sua sponte – they are the product of repetitious reinforcement.  Simply put, it is my bet Trump’s hackney-eyed world view is consistent with the visions held by those he considers peers.  How else would his craziness be so practiced?  You don’t get to be really cray cray without others along for the ride.Pappy

Undoubtedly, sitting around the Billionaires Boys’ Club, they come to feel far superior about themselves by sipping on their Pappy Van Winkles, smoking their Arturo Fuentes while sitting in their fine Corinthian Leather wingbacks (baby seal hides were momentarily unavailable) and regaling one another about those lesser than they.

In these days after Citizen United, I can’t think of any greater threat to democracy.  When I see Trump, I see the possible repeal of Citizen United.  I hope I’m not alone — maybe we’ll have a little luck of the orange.

Your thoughts on any subject are always welcomed and encouraged.

Thought I’d drop a little post to say, “Hi and howdy!”

When I see Trump, I see the possible repeal of Citizen United. I hope I’m not alone — maybe we’ll have a little luck of the orange.

Wouldn’t that be lovely.

Oh and imagine The Donald and Boehner together for a picture. It would drive Pantone crazy. LOL!

Well religious nuts in Indiana, be careful of the repercussions of what you do.

@3, scientific fact — too much corn can cloud your judgment, ergo, the biggest thing that happens in your state every year is that 33 people drive really fast, make four left turns, and then do it another 499 times.

LOL! The sad effects of unintended consequences.

@4: I could mention a state whose main university runs an NBA farm team and doesn’t require its players to attend silly little things like classes. But I won’t because it would be rude. Bless their hearts.

Beata@6: LOL! I thought that one would get a rise out of you! 😉

OMG! Serta mattresses dumped Trump. 😆

@8, in that everything revolves around “The Godfather” — they have literally gone to the mattresses.

@9: Hahahahahahahaaaa!! True dat!

@6, Beata, I plead guilty, but I would posit that a state whose biggest deal every year is a bunch of horses making four left turns and calling it good might be worse than 500 laps of left turning cars. Just sayin’…

UK has a new online dating site. It’s called MeetYourHalfSister dot com.

@6: North Carolina?

“Last month, Mike Flynn, an editor for the conservative Breitbart News, announced his bid for the special election to replace former Rep. Aaron Schock in Illinois. The former columnist and founding editor of the Big Government blog decided to make his first run for political office after the scandal-tarred Schock’s resignation, arguing that his role in the media prepared him for office.”

Okay, Schock’s office was decorated as Downton Abbey, my best bet is that Flynn’s would be decorated in post-modern gulag.

@12, LOL! You don’t know how difficult it is when your family tree doesn’t fork.

@12: Then Alabama’s would be MeetYourSister dot com.

@19, those dating sites are for people who worship, live for, and name their children after college basketball players. They must date, they must marry — saves the rest of us from being unceremoniously yoked to someone who talks about basketball 24/7/365.

@Prolix and Beata: Sorta like the way some Bama fans are.

You guys are so funny!

Love the post, Prolix. Can you imagine if that idiot was elected? He’d get us nuked.

You guys are so funny!

Well I think it’s gonna be quiet around (more so?) for awhile. MB is on a well-deserved vacay and with chat having familial issues you may be seeing just Prolix and me mostly and when Beata too is able to come by.

And you know…what’s scary about Trump is he’s like 2nd in the opinion polls for Iowa and New Hampshire! What are these people thinking? 😵

@22: Socal, I read that as “he’d get us naked” and I’m still laughing.

Oh and imagine The Donald and Boehner together for a picture. It would drive Pantone crazy. LOL!
Fredster, that ‘s hilarious.

@22 & 23, Trump is at his high water mark. I’d say his 12% is pretty representative of the lunatic fringe.

Then you have someone like Rand Paul who just had a “secret meeting” with Cliven Bundy out in Nevada. It wasn’t secret after old Cliven told everyone and their dog about it. His idea is to turn over all the federal land to private ranchers.

Now that is just what taxpayers want, more free stuff for deadbeat ranchers who haven’t paid their grazing fees since Moses parked the ark and opened its doors.

And then there’s Chris Christie — remember his answer that NJ’ians didn’t want him to leave and run for Preznit. Well, 80% of the people said that wasn’t the case, they just really want him gone, but not as Preznit, just gone. In NJ, being “just gone” isn’t one of those things you get on a Hallmark card.

And then there’s that rogue Canadian Cuban, Ted Cruz, auditioning for “The Simpsons”. I say, “Give him a part.”

Calling them clowns gives clowns a bad name.

Prolix said: Calling them clowns gives clowns a bad name.

Yeah well we know of at least one clown who deserves the bad name.

Sweet Sue@25: Perhaps that would be a combo of the choices: get naked then get nuked?
