There are two of us here who rant about our moms, me and I wanna say microbob or micro someone. Not sure who exactly.

I had to double check that gimmick account wasn't mine at first, but their most recent post is even beyond my capability for terrible satire.

My mother and I have had more than a few screaming matches in the last however many years. I try to avoid most topics with her now just to remain sane.

Considering the 3 outer we just lost to get Trump elected I think anyone paying attention won't be counting hatched chickens anymore.

Superuberbob talks about his mom.

I keep my complaints about my mom to myself - including irl. She's not a Trumpkin though. I probably haven't yelled at my mom since I was 15, maybe 16.

Well these tweets seem to mostly come from him. He may have someone helping him choose the word there, though he may know it and it's kind of lame like he's proud of knowing a hard word.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Operation Desert Stormy

Not sure if this is a defensible take by my brother wrt Trump:

"China did also need to be confronted. Allowing them to sidestep the wto and other global economic norms, and more importantly turning a blind public eye to decades of intellectual property theft has, among other things, resulted in the state sponsored expansion of similar divisions in Russia, Iran, and Nigeria. That needed to be called out, halted and eventually reversed. The economic and mikitary consequences of this expansion have been profound"

Yeah, that Bob sounds right. We compared stories for a bit last year.

Don't count on it. My buddy who assured me before the election that I had nothing to worry about as I was freaking out that 80/20 or 70/30 was a MAJOR risk of exactly what we're going through, still assures me that I have nothing to worry about in 2018.

"You've gotta relax, the Democrats will win in 2018."

He logically knows the House is gerrymandered and the Senate sets up for the GOP, but he just buys into this, "The out of power party always flips it in the midterms and everyone hates Trump," narrative.

Most of us on this forum fall into a very unique subset of American people. Imagine a Venn Diagram with the intersection of three circles: Significantly above average intelligence, closely follows politics, understands probabilities.

We're in that intersection; very few people are. I'm not trying to make us out to be superhuman geniuses, but that specific combination has to be rare.

For starters we should stop considering 2016 a 3 outer.

Considering the doctors he keeps company with, he might reach for a bottle every now and then. Does blow come in pill form? He's already got the hookers to go with it. Or maybe the 12 Diet Cokes he drinks every day are made from the original formula. I'd say the paranoia comes from weed, but then Sessions would finally have to admit that he's not a good person.

Wrong Bob.

Anyway, it's my closest connection to the mind of a deplorable. So it's my only frame of reference. Like you, I avoid those topics now for the sake of peace. My sisters do the same.

Nail head, meet hammer. This forum vastly underestimates the role ignorance plays in the American population. Not trying to be too anecdotal, but I know plenty of people IRL who are being ****ty without realizing it. Some of the discouraging polls that are posted ITT reflect that ignorance.

Its rarer than that because you forgot to include the trait "would actually be pleased if liberal policies would be enacted, rather than simply publicly advocating them, even if it was personally to your significant detriment. You are not in the same category as celebrities, athletes, Warren Buffet, Anderson Cooper, Nancy Pelosi, the Clintons, or maybe even Barrack Obama.

When will 13 Dirty Dems reveal their disqualifying hot cock and put it in The Deep state? It’s been a long time now! Crooked H and the FBI tossed the DOJ Salad w President O. Now, Lying Comey is indelibly sucking the BIG-D while Justice and the FBI watch and Report. Collusion with Russia? NO! HOT COCK!

There are quite a few people who have the attention span of gnats.

fwiw in rural america land, I still haven't seen one person actually not support trump who did before. At best a few just backed off being loud about it.
Of course this will all happen. One side is fighting dirty. Dems have a choice in how they fight back. Biggest story of 2018 so far is how well female candidates are doing and how well they are fighting.
