  • Donald! Trump!
  • And fools seldom differ

    Reckon Hillary’s campaign is about to implode though, so the previously laughable Brexit/Trump catastrophe is about to happen, just need pestilence and, errr….the other one and we’re in for the big one.

    Well plagarism seems very much in fashion

    Trump calling for Russia to hack/release Clinton emails….?

    Holy shit, this’s guy’s nucking futs.

    “Trump calling for Russia to hack/release Clinton emails….?
    Holy shit, this’s guy’s nucking futs.”

    Maybe, or maybe he’s just said something extreme to trick you into spreading the message of Clinton’s E-Mails on social media…

    Ive read articles from many sources that the Brexit vote was essentially folk lashing out at the political elite, caused by all of the lies, corruption etc. over the recent years. This could easily apply to the US election too. The first few paras of this article pre-Brexit sums it up quite well

    “That told me what I can write didn’t it…”

    I apologise for putting it that way. Of course you’re free to spread Trump’s propaganda, but I’m free to call you out on it.

    What’s the propoganda? Hilary had some emails on a private server? We all know the story by now. How many US users does this UK-based liberally-slanted MTB forum have? How many of them are going to read that post and say “OMFG I am so voting for Trump now!”

    I’d wager none.

    However, I do think that his comment shows great recklessness, a total lack of understanding of the danger of possibilities of encouraging and perhaps condoning such access of US networks. I think it makes him look like more of a tool, so my matter of consideration (“narrative” if you will) is that, on another level/facet he’s an ignorant foo’ and that the Hilary email thing is not the issue at hand.

    And I won’t be told what I can write by you, thanks, so save your keystrokes.

    Well this “liberally-slanted MTB forum” did used to have 3 or 4 US users, I have no idea of their voting intentions though. They don’t seem to post much now though, I guess they might have been put off by the constant anti-American ridicule and hostility by the sanctimonious liberally-slanted who find such bigotry acceptable.

    Yeah, even that chap’s stopped shilling his book here ‘n all 😉 *

    Apart from the grumbling above** I am usually as welcoming as possible, even to Americans and people who come from outside of Cornwall.

    So are you agreeing with me that it’s not a place where talking about Trump’s outpourings is a problem? It is a shame if STW isn’t diverse – but how to change it?

    *Seriously,. it was lovely when Charlie was around, but he really came across badly over that.

    **I hate being told what I can say. I am “Just a guy, you know” on the internets, that is all. It’s worth only as much as you want it to be worth, but it’s still my freedom to type it 🙂

    “liberally-slanted MTB forum”

    Is it Jamba and Ninfan keeping us from being horizontal?

    I don’t get the America bashing, I have some truly brilliant American friends who are closer than my family. They have different views to me on many things.

    This is me – I know I am guilty of this both here but also in the real world. I’m not proud because if it was aimed at a particular race, faith, gender or sexuality I’d be having words with myself.

    The problem is that whilst I try not to generalise in most things I do, I do struggle with not doing it with Americans. I’ve just met so many narrow minded, introspective Americans who are comically naive both about the rest of the world geographically as well as culturally I can’t help myself. Not just the inbred hicks either – we had a couple people come over to us from Harvard who may well have been very smart but by god were they ignorant about everything non US centric. It made the undoubtedly intelligent thoughts they were here to share with us have zero credibility. It also didn’t help that one sounded exactly like big bird, but that’s going off on a tangent. The truism about Palin believing Africa was a country just gets confirmed by so many Americans I meet. And then they hang on to their silly gun control laws and Trump manages to become a candidate and they look a lost cause.

    Whenever I meet an American who appears to break the mould they turn out to be Canadian!

    I internally try to justify my generalising negative thoughts by reminding myself that they are a rich and powerful country and should have the education to know better.

    So it does appear to be happening. This time it’s not just a Drumpf statement, but as I mentioned before, I suspect he’s not helping with the invitation to actually do it.

    Trump is still going to win. Along with Brexit it’s just one of the signs of the apocalypse.

    and back again 🙂
    Was going to start a neighbour/boundary fence thread but keeping it in one place

    He told a cheering crowd in Arizona that he would secure the border, and left open the possibility that millions of illegal immigrants be deported.
    Hours earlier, he met Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto but said they had not discussed financing the wall.
    The president later insisted he had told Mr Trump Mexico would not pay.

    He accused his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton of wanting to grant amnesty to undocumented immigrants and of advocating “open border” policies.
    Reacting to Mr Trump’s visit to Mexico, she said he had “choked” by not asking his hosts to pay for his wall.

    Like any good keyboard warrior, forgot to actually mention the big issues when he popped round to see his neighbour

    Every time I see or hear that racist, daughter fancying, tiny handed, dead red squirrel wearing **** nugget, I’m reminded of the line in Sage Francis’s Makeshift Patriot: “so wave your flag with pride, especially the white part”

    He is a racist in a business suit, I’m sure the illegal immigrant stance he has will only extend to those of countries he feels are a coloured threat to his utopia.

    TBH just about every line applies… He’s got the megaphone, promising to make heads roll.

    Neil Degrasse-Tyson made a good point the other day. On the US ballot, there should be a option to select none of the above. If that option wins, then both parties have to submit new candidates.

    As at the moment…..

    From the Beeb:
    Meanwhile Rick Wilson, a conservative political consultant who has embraced Evan McMullin’s third-party presidential bid, called Mr Trump’s speech “hideous word vomit”.

    I may adopt that phrase.

    This should be interesting, Melania Trump is suing the Daily Mail for $150 million over claims that she was a sex worker. Whoever loses, we win! 😉

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-37253025

    She’s absolutely not a sex worker.

    She is married to and presumably sleeps with billionaire Donald Trump… because of his charming personality and great sense of humour.

    @shermer – yes indeed. Daily Mail has already published a retraction, that won’t save them from a world of legal pain and expense.

    Trump is sadly the better of two very poor candidates. The outcome is far from certain imo

    I imagine his devastatingly good looks came into to somewhere as well as his lovely hair and his teeny tiny hands

    Unless he is stood next to Hitler No

    i think we will all agree they are two tainted candidates and hardly the best of the best but to think trump is best you need to be a redneck a little racist, incredibly stupid or a combination of all three

    I see they tried the old ‘we published the allegation while making clear it wasn’t true’ trick. It will be nice to see that defence failing miserably. Let’s hope they have a clause in their libel insurance about reckless publication leaving them with the entire bill.

    Happy days!
