So, the other two Trump threads are closed. Might be an idea to talk about Trump on this thread, hey?

Did I hear Ake say that most of the liberals at Mudcat supported the Bush invasion of Iraq? I have to say that I was surprised and disappointed that Hillary voted for it. I don't think she'd do it now, although she is more "hawkish" than I would like.
But I think most U.S. Mudcatters were against the invasion of Iraq. I certainly opposed it.

None of the threads were personally abusive and I don't see how we can discuss Mr Trump without also discussing the election as a whole.

" He insists on contributing every third or fourth post to argue with people in the US about American candidates."

To be fair, if the US appoints itself 'leader of the free world' then those of us in the free world have a stake in these elections too, and we're as entitled to comment on it as anyone else. The influence of the US across the world for good or bad means everyone has an opinion, and everyone is affected.

Also, your president came over here with a stick rather than a carrot during the run up to the EU referendum and gave his two penneth (making things worse for us remainers), so if we are to suffer direct interference in our affairs then a few folk commenting on a forum thread is the least of it.

When someone doesn't contribute to the various threads, but changes the subject to his hatred of one candidate, he isn't furthering the conversation. And saying it over and over and over suggests that he thinks repeating a lie often enough will make it become the truth.

And now he has managed to turn the thread from Trump to himself. That is an old troll trick.

It was horrifying that Bush started a war in Iraq, and wretched to see how anyone who opposed it was immediately pounced upon as unpatriotic if they didn't get behind Baby Bush right after 9-11. Cheney lied. Many people were fooled.

But you haven't seen nothin' yet, if Trump were to be elected, the House, the Senate, and the Supreme Court will have to spend all of their time keeping him in line and acting to correct his judgement errors. He doesn't have a clue what the Constitution is about.

My wife was telling me about a series of experiments undertaken by behavioral scientists. Young children watched puppets performing short vignettes, after which they were allowed to choose one of the puppets to play with. When shown one puppet acting politely and another acting badly, the children almost uniformly chose to play with the "nice" puppet. When shown a puppet who liked the type of breakfast cereal the children themselves liked and another puppet who liked something else, the children almost always chose the puppet who liked their own favorite cereal. But when shown the cereal vignette and the good puppet/bad puppet vignette sequentially, the children almost always chose to play with the puppet who liked their favorite cereal, even if it was the bad puppet.

My interpretation of this is that the children identified puppets who like their own favorite cereal as members of their own "tribe". They formed tribal identities based on a very basic commonality: food preference. They were willing to ignore bad behavior on the part of other tribe members, but not in non-tribe members. Tribal identity trumps morality.

This says a lot to me about Donald Trump's appeal and, most importantly, why he's able to get away with the outlandishly offensive comments he makes. He has established himself as a member of the "disaffected white people" tribe by appealing to base level wants and needs, like economic (in)security, and ignoring higher level concerns like morality, wisdom, and rationality. Other disaffected white people are willing to ignore, even applaud, comments and behaviors from Trump that they'd never find acceptable coming from a non-tribe member.

The gun of Damocles is loaded, and Trump merely made an implication?

BEE W, I have watched the good/bad puppet experiments. Point well taken. Perhaps you see my perspective of Trump using what I call, in this case of insinuating permission to shoot, oblique hypnotic suggestion?

The Chicago Tribune (click) has a good article about The Donald and The Nukes. It's similar to his quip on 2nd Amendment people and Hillary - he says it, and then he denies it, but he leaves the thought there. And so he has succeeded in issuing a horrible threat while retaining some degree of deniability. It's insidious.

This sort of practice is common among lecherous men who make sexually-threatening remarks toward women and then immediately deny that they said anything of the sort. Such veiled threats may be even more damaging than direct threats, because the culprits often succeed in escaping culpability. Like I said, it's insidious.

Of course, the entire Republican Party has been doing this to Hillary since 1992, to the point where even Bernie Sanders supporters believe them. They have well-nigh destroyed the reputation of a good woman, and they deny culpability. They made Trump their candidate, and now they deny culpability. Need I say it again? It's insidious.

Absolutely. The Trumpshit- although he's an absolute moron and a crook into the bargain - is well aware of what he says.

This is a man who described his "romantic escapades" (i.e. indiscriminate rutting)in the 1980's as his "personal Vietnam" because he put himself at risk of sexually transmitted diseases. He stated that this made him feel "like a great and very brave soldier". (see Howard Stern interview). He's a real 14 karat piece of shit.

If you still have your doubts, fine, but do not apologize for Donald. You will regret it. I have had experiences which leaves me without a shred of naiveté' . Life is nice when you remain naïve, like a happy delusion, but it is escapist.

In a political campaign all you need to do is deny a particular meaning while your opponent is put in a position or quandary of having to deny something absurd.

oversimplified but clear:

The 2 parties in America have roughly been the rich party and the poor party. Neither are essentially rational all the time.

The rich party has achieved rulings to abolish half of the voting rights act, citizens united has made independent multi national corporations to spend unlimited money on our lections, and the Court ruled that money is free speech to be used to out shout people with no money. The rich party has created more billionaires than anytime in history.

The poor party has legalized unions, abolished child labor, made a new deal safety net for the needy, established safety and protection agencies, established a civil rights act and promote the health and welfare of the people.   

Both parties can over do it or become addicted to the access to power and money. The skeleton or infrastructure is one of neglect by both parties.

-----------------------


In answer to McGrath, The percentage of American Presidents who have narrowly survived actual assassination attempts along with those have died from attacks is 10%. Surely that can not be an excuse to dismiss inciting people to commit murder.

Historically there are a couple of bad actors who can be compared to Trump like Aaron Burr and Andrew Jackson.

The path to victory by Trump can only be by nefarious/tragic means or by a historic extra large voter turnout.

Mr. Trump defended his portrayal of the president as a "founder" of ISIS, despite criticism that the claim was both inaccurate and inflammatory. In a rally on Wednesday night in Sunrise, Fla., Mr. Trump suggested that the Islamic State "honors" Mr. Obama, and he went out of his way to refer to "the administration of Barack Hussein Obama," emphasizing the president's middle name.

On CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Thursday morning, when an interviewer pressed Mr. Trump on the propriety of his claim about Mr. Obama's responsibility for the rise of the Islamic State, Mr. Trump said it was "absolutely" the case and added: "Is there something wrong with saying that?

I suppose that like him or loathe him, Mr Trump has come through the primaries against all odds to take his place as Republican presidential candidate.

That position itself, in a democracy, deserves a degree of respect if we really imagine ourselves to be democrats.
These threads have turned into a series of puerile insults rather than providing any insight into the man or his opinions and flags up the crazy partisan nature of US politics which I continue to see as the game of "Good cop Bad cop"......a game that guarantees no societal change in the foreseeable future.

A subtle reminder this political season:

Don't feed the trolls.

Respect for a position does not imply any kind of respect for the individual filling it. That's a rule in all circumstances.

But I agree t hat just making cracks about Trump is a bit of a waste of time.

More interesting is speculation about whether the Republicans could find a way of dumping him. I gather there's a provision for removing a candidate for "being of unsound mind" - but since that's what was what got him his position, rather than something that has happened to him subsequently (such as a stroke), it might be a bit hard to justify that. And it would suicide for the Republicans - though that seems likely in any case.

You've got that exactly backwards, Ake.

These threads have provided and are providing facts about the man, his past history and business practices, his ludicrous opinions, his assinine statements, his general ignorance, his buffoonish antics and his insane policies, which YOU perversely choose to see as "puerile insults".

"rather than providing any insight into the man or his opinions"

To be fair Ake, we have plenty of insight into the man and his opinion. He's a lair, fantasist and narcissist; not puerile insults but conclusions based on the actions and comments of the man himself.

Respect is an odd word. Everybody deserves respect, including those who we rightly despise.
