Someone post me a gun. I need protection from the people here that are not supposed to have guns. 

Guys, it's easy to become president. All you need is your dad to lend you a couple of million bucks for your 18th birthday so you can start buying hotels. After a couple of decades you can easily afford it.

Trump. It sounds like an accident in the pants. I don't want to trump. Too late, I've trumped.

The UK is just as bad, we voted to leave the free trade market in the EU. Now the only choice we have is to pay them the same amount of money as membership to trade, but we don't have any say what the EU does with that money and none of it will be used to help businesses in the UK to keep stabilised with the people they are trading with. This is the simple result of racism, bigots and political coup. 

Can you guys watch BBC news in America? We are watching it just to play 'spot thepropaganda'. It's actually quite difficult because of the layers of lies.

Duck, I'm in favor of California, Chicago, and New York seceding. After the dingleberries run it into the ground, we can reaquire the real estate for pennies and try to reestablish some sanity there!

It just keeps getting stupider and stupider. I agree with you Wayfinder, this political party thing just seems to be a means to guarantee an argument.

It never ceases to amaze me how people will scream that we need "term limits" when they keep voting for the same idiots, term after term. 

We already have term limits, all you have to do is elect someone else.

Then we have my home state of California where they keep screaming that we need more federal funding of their stupid projects like the "Bullet train" and then say that we should secede from the nation and become a "sovereign nation" on our own.  Hell, these fools can't even run the state properly and they want to become independent?

When I was little I was told any American can grow up and become President of the United States.  

Of course, back then that thought wasn't so terrifying.

Just this morning out of the nowhere-blue a thought hit me:  Why in the name of common sense do we have two political parties?  Why does the concept of Democrats and Republicans even exist?    Isn't this supposed to be "one nation"?  Where is the supposed unity?

Mind you, I'm not getting political at all.  I'm talking common sense.  When did the idea of two completely opposed parties constantly fighting in any arena become a "good thing"?   How is anyone supposed to accomplish anything when everyone is "taking sides" and fighting people on the "other side"... even if that person has a good idea.

Wouldn't it be far better to eliminate "political parties" and just everyone discuss things as civil individuals, with mutual respect and politeness?  Why should voting be at all influenced by "Vote Republican!" or "Vote Democrat!"?   How is there a lick o' sense in any of that?

How about just plain old, "Vote for the person you think is best" or "vote according to your conscience and good will toward humanity".  What's the problem with that simple concept?

My dad said it plainly:  "There's no way I'm voting for the next idiot that gets in office."

I have a bit different view:  "I voted for Jesus Christ decades ago and my vote hasn't changed since."

Is it just me, or did all of the political BS (past and continuing) take all of the fun out of being a curmudgeon.  With so much uncivil action going on it hurts the goals of true curmudgeonness.

All the damn political correctness has screwed up my lifestyle.

Sorry, Wayfinder.  I'm a hard core meat eater, but if all the meat was politicians I would become a vegetarian.

The season for politicians opens once you bag them, dress them out and stick them in the pot.   I like the seasonings with the little flip tops; easy to open with one hand while stirring with another.

No, never mind that.  Just kidding.  Politicians taste nastee. Totally ruin a good stew.

Nothing like the smell of Oak, Spruce and Cedar in the morning.
