This election will be a contest between good and evil. In a previous post, I described Donald Trump as vile. If you move the final letter in “vile” to the front, it becomes “evil.” That makes Hillary Clinton good. Good is sometimes boring and evil exciting, but the US doesn’t need and perhaps cannot withstand the excitement that evil would bring to the world.
Please see Trump in one word
Donald Trump has not yet dyed his hair green, but I think that he got his orange make-up from Willy Wonka’s Oompa Loompa assistants. Just as Dr. Evil has his Mini-Me, the Donald can surround himself with a bevy of small look-alikes, the Oompa Loompas.
The most important contest this election year is the Trump/Clinton contest. Ranking just behind that contest is the Paul Ryan re-election campaign. Paul Ryan is the Koch brothers representative in Congress besides being the author of the Koch approved budget with Libertarian Party priorities. Paul Ryan may be vulnerable this year. If he can be defeated and retired from Congress, it will be a very important step in remaking the House of representatives so that it may again begin representing the 99% instead of the 1%.
I never knew that Clint Eastwood ever sang professionally. In Paint Your Wagon, the Alan Jay Lerner musical released in 1969, both Clint and Lee Marvin sing their own musical numbers. Watching it now for the first time, I was struck by how young Clint appeared at the time, 39. The film was made on location near Baker City, in eastern Oregon. A portion of the movie was filmed at my favorite place, Big Bear, California. A tad long at 2 hours 44 minutes, still enjoyable.
RINO–Republican In Name Only
Thar’s what current members of the GOP call people they consider not conservative enough. Actually in truth, the current leadership of the Republicans are the RINOs. Fans of Ayn Rand, they are Libertarians hiding behind a Republican facade. Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, is currently their fair-haired boy. Reluctant to run for president himself, the Koch brothers put Ryan on the ticket in 2012 with Mitt Romney.
