That Was Then And So Is This ** Open Thread **


Joke: What’s the difference between and Obot and a Trumpanzee? No punch line because there isn’t one.

If we all climbed into the Wayback Machine we would see that just 8 years ago some of the, many of the, same things were stirring in the country. Those of us that used to be Democrats jumped ship when we couldn’t stand the corruption of our party. Some jumped into the other corrupt party and some of us tried to find some honesty and decency by becoming Independents. A foolish concept because in the end we vote for one of the corrupt parties or waste our vote on a 3rd party which hasn’t a chance.


The nastiness of the Clinton/Obama primary is a bone still sticking in some of our throats. We haven’t forgotten and we haven’t forgiven the treachery. And we still cannot understand the voters that voted for Obama not just once but twice.

We, the Democrats that would not support Obama, were first told we had to vote for him or those evil Republicans would win. Then we were told they didn’t need us anyway. And they didn’t. He won and the country lost.

Enough little lost sheep went back to the fold and Obama played his politics of division through two terms. But the Democrats were wounded and the party shrunk some and those that stayed trusted less.

So when Hillary came along for the second time, now carrying a lot more baggage, the Dems were not pleased. Thus the Bernie Sanders phenomena.

Bernie must know that he hasn’t a chance because the Dems, while screaming about voter I.D. disenfranchising the voters have their very own way of disenfranchising the voters, they’re called the Super Delegates.

Once again Democrats have a very good look at the corruption of their party. Once again most of them will vote Democrat anyway. Probably at lot more will do that if Trump is the alternative. Especially women. The same women who will forgive Bill his “bimbo eruptions” may not forgive Trump his “bimbo language”.

So along comes a bombastic, narcissistic, lying, divisive GOP candidate from the right and the dimwitted Republicans fall in love. Enter Trump with all his ignorance and inexperience and the voters go wild. Nothing he says can dissuade them from their besotted support. It’s Obot the election Part Two. Except this time the Republican Party, in hits corruption isn’t happy with the people’s choice and is determined to stop him and insert that own little establishment choice. It hasn’t worked. It not only hasn’t worked it’s blown up in their faces.

I confess there was a time when I thought that in the end the American People would unleash their power and would not vote for someone not fit to represent us as a people and not fit to represent our country. I thought that the majority would not let the media or the establishment select our candidate. Boy did I get that wrong!

Once again angry, ignorant, uninformed/misinformed people stalk us to convince us that their anointed one will save us all. Once again they are wrong and foolish and nasty.

Many think to guilt us or bully us or insult us back into the Republican fold with their boorish hero at the helm. Once again some will return meekly to the fold. Just like the Dems did. And once again some, many will not.

Trumpanzees believe that we will hold our nose and vote for their vulgar and ignorant choice. They believe that we loathe the Hillary liar and phony more than we loathe the Trump liar and phony. Some do. Many do not.

What they refuse to see is that many of us think he’s just as bad as the lying critter he will oppose if he’s the nominee. And how does a decent person choose between Lucifer and Beelzebub? They don’t. Some will just stay home, some will leave the top of the ticket blank and make their down ticket choices and some will vote 3rd party.

And where that will lead is anyone’s guess at this point in time. President Female liar and cheat? President Vulgarian liar and cheat? From Obots to Trumpanzees in 8 years. Who would ever have thunk it?

    Garland Nod The Latest Move In Democrats’ Game of Thrones

    Given the rancor and turmoil inside the GOP these days, even a bitter, partisan, hammer-and-tongs battle to the death over a Supreme Court justice seems almost quaint by comparison.

    WATCH: Anti-Trump Jorge Ramos debates pro-Trump O’Reilly on who’s more biased about Trump!

    This election has gotten so bad that these two idiots are debating over who is more biased about Trump.

    Senior Adviser to Donald Trump Says Riots Are Not Violence

    Excuse me blockhead but a “riot” is by definition violent. He claims he’s got all the “best” words so he should know what he’s saying when he’s saying it.

    I agree with foxyladi14, “You nailed it”!
    We are victims once again! I am following news regarding third party or independent candidate, if none, I will write in some name or leave blank. #NeverTrump

    Another insightful thread.
    Every once in a while I peek at the trump central blogs to keep abreast of their foolishness. On one blog, a trump cheerleader actually told another blogger who isn’t a supporter, to stop bullying other bloggers.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      A page right out of the Obot handbook. Remember back then that they were the victims – victims of our racism. The theme is the same, just the names and faces have changed.

  9. piper Says:

    Obviously, this person lacks a dictionary or the skill to use an internet app. According to my dictionary definition riots are ” violent disturbance of the peace by a crowd.”

    • piper Says:

      Supposed to rest under the donald’s senior advisor which tells me about the kind of advisors he would pick for his cabinet and WH staff.

        Isn’t that a fact? Although don’t forget about this bit of arrogance:

        Trump: “I’m Speaking to Myself” About Foreign Policy, I “Have a Very Good Brain” and “Instinct”

        “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things,” Trump said. “In fact, in my book in 2000 I talked about Osama bin Laden.”

        “I know what I’m doing, I listen to a lot of people, I talk to a lot of people and at the appropriate time I’ll tell you who they are, I speak to a lot of people but my primary consultant is myself and I have a good instinct about this stuff,” Trump continued.

        Supposedly Jeff Sessions is around to “advise” the mighty Trump. What do you think his chances are of penetrating that wall of narcissism?

    I wrote a response to a trumpite on another blog about what will she say or think when he fails to keep his promises. The unbelievable response was – she’ll give him credit for ‘trying.’ Really – smh – a sprinkle of fairy dust (sound bites, no actual plans) is all it takes to turn people into sheeple.
    Time to leave another favorite blog.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      She sounds like some besotted teenager. Unbelievable!

      The Trump infestation on other blogs is frightening. As is their incredible mind numbing stupidity. Are there any actual thinking human beings left in this country except for we few here at Rev Amy’s place?
