Damned if you do; Damned if you don’t
One thing the three-month hiatus did was keep me from making a really bad prediction. Back then, I would surely pontificate, “There is no way Trump could be nominated”. So that’s not part of the record, but it sure would have been.Has anyone figure out this man? I use that term loosely. He’s like those targets in a shooting gallery. You bang over the rabbit and a deer pops up. He isn’t the same two days in a row. One day he likes something; the next day he hate it.
He obviously doesn’t like Dagoes, Wops, Frog Eaters, Potato Eaters, Rag Heads, Bean Eaters etc. But unlike me, he isn’t a bit embarrassed putting such terms in a sentence. They take him to task for it and he “clarifies” so that he’s only a Fascist instead us realizing he’s not even American. But then, once upon a time, none of us were.
The Republicans have focus grouped themselves into a corner. Coming up with plans to win at any cost — just like the Dems — has created this situation. The situation is that nobody likes or trusts their government. That made a Trump’s coming as obvious as those of Hitler and Mussolini and, yes, Stalin. Heck, throw in George III. All arrive in the chaos of failing governments in need of a strong man. And that’s all Trump is portraying.
If any past generation showed up, they’d kick our collective ass. Many of them were stuck fighting those other dictators. We are in for chaos, if we’re lucky. Good luck with President Hillary who Bernie morphed into another silly Populist. And, God bless, tripartite government. It may keep the worst at bay.

Decades ago, the wealthy owner of the Washington Redskins lamented the free-spending ways of his head coach, George Allen: “I gave George an unlimited budget, and he exceeded it.”
