Just watched Trump Alabama rally. What a time to be alive

mind was nuked. My observations


* the first thing trump does when he takes the stage, kicks group of hecklers out.

* 90% of what trump said was about the size of the crowd, over and over again.

"wow 35k people!! and another 4k in the parking lot the fire dept wont let in!"

* laughs at black lives matter protestors and gets them kicked out.

* refers to Rubio as "little marco" numerous times and laughs how he had to "steal" money from the government to repave the driveway on his 185k house.


The whole thing reminded me of a WWE wrestling event where Vince Mcmahon was in the ring with the microphone talking reckless for 35 min.


Unbelievable different from any politician we have ever seen. This guy is gonna win.

I was thinking that most of his talking points are directly lifted from Craigslist's Rant & Rave section.

Say what you will about Trump, but the man is a marketing genius. I watched part of that rally too. I lol'd every time Trump refereed to Rubio as that "that little man" and said he was worried about him when he started sweating through his suit at the debate. He was calling Bush "that poor guy" hahaha.

Nailed it w/ the WWF analogy. That's why Murican's love Trump.

I watched about 15 minutes of the Raleigh NC one a couple months ago, that's about all that I could stand. Most people just wanted to stand up and say something racist. Others just wanted to hear him mention the wall. This old woman got to ask a question which no one could understand until she yelled it about 4 or 5 times " Do you think that the male Syrian refugees that come over will remain celibate when they get here!!!" That's when I had to turn it off. You have to hand it to the guy, he knows how to appeal to the majority of America, the retarded hillbillies love this guy, and I applaud him.


It's really so simple if you think about it. Everyone tries to get the white votes, the woman votes, the latino votes, the blacks votes, the gay votes, no ones ever tried to grab the racist's votes.

Trump resembles a side show act. He's like that kid in school who never had anything intelligent to say so therefore he resorted to insulting people regularly in order to push focus off himself.

Few questions:
1) How, if at all, is he qualified to be president?
2) How screwed would we be, in terms of international relations, if he were to be elected?
3) Why is he so scared to release his tax information? Is he afraid of what will be uncovered and is saying "he's being audited by the IRS and can't do it"?
4) Would anyone really care is someone with a 30 odd 6 put a bullet in his head from 500 yards?
5) How the hell is he so seemingly popular? Are GOP voters really that stupid and mindless or is the party in such disarray that they're grasping at any hope of light?

Quote:
After the murder of Pertinax (28 March 193), the Praetorian assassins announced that the throne was to be sold to the man who would pay the highest price. Titus Flavius Claudius Sulpicianus, prefect of the city, father-in-law of the murdered emperor, being at that moment in the camp to which he had been sent to calm the troops, began making offers, whereupon Julianus, having been roused from a banquet by his wife and daughter, arrived in all haste, and being unable to gain admission, stood before the gate, and with a loud voice competed for the prize.

As the bidding went on, the soldiers reported to each of the two competitors, the one within the fortifications, the other outside the rampart, the sum offered by his rival. Eventually Sulpicianus promised 20,000 sesterces to every soldier; Julianus, fearing that Sulpicianus would gain the throne, then offered 25,000. The guards immediately closed with the offer of Julianus, threw open the gates, saluted him by the name of Caesar, and proclaimed him emperor. Threatened by the military, the Senate declared him emperor. His wife and his daughter both received the title Augusta.

Written, it's ".30-06". Spoken, it's "thirty ought six". The more you know.

On topic: Almost everyone I work with (construction employees; need I say more?) claims Trump will be the greatest thing that happened to America since the invention of air conditioning. Not just them, but a good many people down here. Considering I live in a rather racist and sexist state, it doesn't surprise me at all. However, it does frighten me.

If Trump becomes president, I think I may look into moving to Germany. Or Canada. Or something.

Good thing your house comes with wheels....

Ran into a couple of MS Trump supporters last night at a restaurant. One was wearing a black T-shirt with something about killing terrorists on the back. Both were talking about how corporations are running America and how all the other former candidates are now jockeying for positions in Trump's government. Stayed away from them as much as I could, but I felt bad for the older, black couple eating at a couple tables away.

It's going to be profound if Trump becomes POTUS and actually gets the job done.

the only good that can come out of trump running is if we can use the list of people who voted for him as a list of people who we should systematically exterminate.
