Yup, your analysis matches mine.

Trump appears to have a lock on the Republican nomination now. Hillary probably has the Democratic nomination, but that's less solid for the reason you gave. I think that Bernie would do better than Hillary against Trump, and some polls support this. All things considered, I think Bernie is a better match to the country's needs right now than Hillary.

But in any event, the Democratic nominee will get my vote. The alternative is truly terrible to contemplate.

:coffee:

If one's faith in the American people is justified, then the electoral map will turn out to look something like with Trump in the red. He has a lock on the bigot vote.

Been working all day on the internets with MSNBC in the background. It would be generous to say Hillary and Bernie got about a minute and a half each. The tornados in Oklahoma got intermittent 30 second spots and Trump got the rest. Even the brazen liberals at MSNBC can't refrain from providing gratuitous face time to the public spectacle that is The Donald.

The media can take much of the credit for the St Vitus Dance of Trump-a-mania that has mesmerized the Kardashian loving, American Idol watching, nostalgic for Hee Haw American psyche. Who else stands to gain more from a Trump Presidency?

President Trump might then well bolster the military as other hostilities around the globe will pale compared to a unified world intent on regime change in the US. They will know, if we don't, that this country has gone completely mad and must be dealt with accordingly.

America needs a healthy multi-party system. It is this damnable duopoly that has us painted into a corner.

America needs a kindergarten teacher to reinstate basic, entry level respect for manners, decency, fairness, honesty, unselfishness and remedial cleanliness.

And a constitutional amendment that disqualifies everyone over the age of 10 from holding public office.

"Duopoly" refers to 2 parties (which are basically 2 sides of the same coin. We are way past the time of needing to build a system that isn't ruled by D or R and being forced to choose the lesser of 2 evils in every election cycle. There needs to room for the Libertarians, the Green Party, the Democratic Socialist Party and even room for new parties to emerge and compete on a level playing field.

I am awake and have been for a long time. I think you are the one sleeping S&L.

As Jesus said, "Everything is fixed, and you can't change it!" (J.C. Superstar)

The more arcane structural barriers, such as requiring 15% polling before actually being allowed to compete (in a debate) and the reluctance of any viable news agency to provide adequate exposure to third, fourth or fifth parties pretty much guarantees the status quo.

Maybe that's good, because the majority of Americans can only handle a D and an R. Three or more letters confuses them. On the other hand, many of them have no clue there even are more letters because they never see them.

The MSM made Trump by dangling him in front of all else, saying, "Hey, look at us. We have a dancing monkey for your entertainment." They could have added an L to the equation by affording Gary Johnson equal time. They could have added a G by hyping Smokey the Bear.

As a great philosopher (coondog) says, any Kardashian announcing a presidential run would similarly capture the attention and support of half of Americans, given the same air time. (add a K)

We can agree that the process is fixed. But, it is what it is and its not going to change before November. Where we may disagree is on whether evil manifests itself in varying degrees and if it does, the lesser evil is preferable to the greater evil, until we can unveil the entire alphabet.......eventually.

The Trump U. thing is interesting. What a political HIT. If you wish to know more put a little Stefan on in the background...

I do not expect the regulars here to be either well informed of fair when it comes to the law suit against Trump U., so called.

It's odd, that this issue has affected republicans to the degree it has, considering all the absurd nonsense Trump has said that they so casually ignore. It's odd that Trump would even bring it up, unless he's more concerned than he lets on and prefers to try the case in the public sphere.
According to accounts, he is or has been involved in some 3,500 law suits. At least 60 of them are against him for non payment on contracts.

Considering how many judges must be involved, this issue seems somewhat petty. It's not the attitude of the judge that matters, its the fraud that matters. And, it's a personal issue. Has nothing to do with Trump's failure to demonstrate an iota of understanding or knowledge of much of anything. Anything.

Please keep posting that guy, Stefan. Didn't make it through the entire 44 minutes yet, but that's first class entertainment.

Agree. Stefan is an airhead. His English accent does not manage to compensate for the vacuum in his cranium.

So an American judge of Mexican heritage must be biased against Trump because of the stupid wall?
Is an American judge of Jewish heritage biased because Trump sounds like a fascist?
Is an American judge of Egyptian heritage biased because of Trump's anti-Muslim statements?
Is an American judge with a perfect credit rating biased because Trump has so many unpaid bills?
Is an American judge with a normal haircut biased because Trump's looks like a hundred rats caught in a tornado?
Is an American judge married for 30 years to the same woman biased because Trump has cycled through 3 wives (so far)?
Is an American judge who is female biased because Trump has made so many statements disparaging of women?
Is an American judge who is male with normal hands biased because Trump has tiny hands?
Is an American judge who is articulate and intelligent biased because Trump speaks like a 6 year-old?

On Trump's wacky criteria, it's going to be tough to find an unbiased judge to hear his hundreds and hundreds of lawsuits.
