Tom the Dancing Bug, IN WHICH Donald Trump can get us to debate anything he wants, including whether or not giraffes are jerks.

Hey, Rhode island got a mention…sweet.


#5

geraffes are so dumb.


#6

Always sweet when home gets mentioned!


#7

#Reuben Bolling gets it.

With the exception of a few Independents like Bernie Sanders, the political Left* in the USA uses mainstream rhetoric that harms their own causes and fights on battle grounds of the the Right’s** choosing. Trump takes full advantage of those weaknesses to promote his own brand.

* Nominally Left, really just center-right authoritarians.
** Nominally Right, really just pseudo-libertarian plutocrats.

Hell even trump’s supporters acknowledge he’s an asshole ‘that’s why we like him. He says how it is.’

It’s funny depressing because it’s true!


#11

Sadly it’s all true, it’s tough to parody something when the reality is already so extremely weird. Liberals tie themselves in knots reacting to Trump, and no progress is made. Trump is making the media dance and look like fools with his extremely weird tweets.

I hope we can eventually amend the Constitution to disallow presidents from tweeting. It seems disastrous.


#12

I’m not sure it’s the media who looks foolish when Trump tweets.

There are almost twice as many people in Silicon Valley as there are in the entire state of Rhode Island. Both have 4 congressional representatives, but Rhode Island also gets Senators.

PS - I’m drawing the line of Silicon Valley being only Santa Clara County. I’m not including Alameda County, San Mateo County, San Francisco County or Santa Cruz County. Because none of them are simultaneously Silicon and a Valley.


#14

Please re-read Tom the Dancing Bug.


#15

Is there a point here some where?


#16

Alameda County has a pretty big valley, as well as silicon (including Livermore Laboratory.)


#17

Nice summary!

I find the fact that everybody in the US uses Republican terminology so disheartening.

Use their words and discuss their topics = accept their framing of the issue
