They were careless people

To paraphrase F. Scott Fitzgerald:

“They were careless people, the Clintons—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

The Dems enable Trump

Let's be honest here. If the Democrats had picked a reasonable candidate, someone who wasn't hopelessly tainted with Wall Street money, someone not tied to some of the worst decisions regarding working peoples financial lives and foreign war making in recent history, someone who didn't repel young women voters with her louche spouse this wouldn't be a contest. Instead they have chosen Hillary. If Trump becomes president, no one will be more responsible than the Democrat establishment.

There were alternatives. Kirsten Gillibrand would crush Trump. The endemic corruption of the Democrat establishment makes them blind to how they are perceived by ordinary voters. As a nominally left wing party the Democrats are most responsible for the economic fortunes of the working and middle classes. They have been a chronic failure in this stewardship and no one is more closely associated with this failure than the Clintons. If Trump wins, the people most responsible will be those apparatchiks of the financial industry who 'cleared the field' for Hillary Clinton, which is almost all of the Democrat establishment.

How the System Works

"I will tell you that our system is broken. I gave to many people. Before this, before two months ago, I was a businessman. I give to everybody. When they call, I give. And you know what? When I need something from them, two years later, three years later, I call them. They are there for me. And that's a broken system." - D.J. Trump

Race-Baiting Crackpot Gives Interview

Drudge has become very weird. From an interview with Alex Jones:

"We never really heard of ISIS until recently and I remember when that name first started coming up. Do you know that it was designed to be confused with Darrell Issa? Did you know that's what it was. Because Darrell Issa was the enemy at the time of this administration. [...] They came up with the name ISIS to be confused with Darrell Issa. I'm really being hinest with you. I remember the first time Christiane Amanpour sputtered out this word ISIS thinking did she get that one? [...] And then the President going it's not even ISIS, it's ISIL or IS. This Dr. Seuss. This is madness."

One has to assume that he takes too many drugs. 

The future is not here, yet

They cannot stop us. They cannot stop the future. At the recent DARPA Robotics Challenge, things didn't always go as planned...
