    Wind him up and listen to him spout insane bullshit. We’re going to “save” coal? He loves those “incredible” coal miners? And Hillary Clinton is going to put them out of business? Lord love a duck, but that’s the height of inanity!

    1:31 of “highlights” is just about all I can take this early in the AM, and the “more complete” version would likely cause me to upchuck my breakfast.

    As for 36:09 of his unrelenting BS, it is ALL “comedy bonus” since he knows so little, stands for nothing, and gives so few real answers. It’s fun to watch him try to “act smart” and pander, but at the same time, it is profoundly disturbing and disheartening that he has gotten this far, and there is at root nothing “comedic” about it.

    It’s about as “comedic” as reading about the Darwin Award winners, and if Trump is elected president, the USA will be the first country to win one.

      Hope you don’t mind if I borrow that last sentence.

        Feel free—-I throw my “thoughts” out into the huge storms raging on the sea of insanity that represents “thinking” in today’s world, and if any of them don’t sink immediately I am heartened.

      It is shocking to see the dark underbelly of American fascism emerging so blatantly in the open, and to a much larger extent than I had previously imagined. I always knew it was there, but most people were apparently keeping a lid on it.
      We have now almost completely forgotten the lessons learned by the rise of this type of mentality in Europe that led to WW II.

      We are all familiar with George Santayana’s quote, but usually only the end of it.
      Here is the full quote, that fleshes out the idea and should be resurrected for Trump supporters to dwell on:

      “Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

    This is what happens when certain people are confronted with facts they feel compelled to block from awareness. The temptation for further repression becomes irresistable as the mounting emotional costs of confronting your behavior become too high. You slip slide down a slope to insanity, self-justifying by all sorts of incredible behavior and allegiances, with people like Trump waiting to capitalize on them. Some, hopefully most, stay sane. But our system isn’t good about installing such people into places of political power.

  3. Interesting that he brings up a $10/barrel tax on oil (when the real cost is $40/barrel for all the damage it does, and that is from Shell), but rages about how oil is up to $50/barrel from $30 or less lol!

    Hey dumbass, the whole idea behind an oil tax is TO decrease the price of oil but with an tax based on its damage to the environment!

    All this whole thing does is confirm that all he cares about is profit for carbon pollution for him and the rest of his 0.1%, while getting totally ignorant brown shirt morons to cheer his ego on as they get fucked in the ass.
