Random Thoughts - Politics 2016

Is Elizabeth Warren Native American? Here's the Mass. Senator's Heritage Explained

There they were, in matching blue outfits, with matching blonde coiffures, sporting the same big grins.  Two women commanding the stage in the race for the Presidency of the United States.  Why was I so fixated on the visuals?



I've lost interest in the words; Donald Trump has nothing to say to me and Hillary is still #WrongWithinNormalParameters and listening won't change anything.  Yes, she is moving to the left, touting affordable college and a rise in the minimum wage.  Yes, he is promoting his golf course and misspeaking about Scotland's Brexit vote.  I don't really care.  I'm #SettlingForHillary.  My mind is made up.  Now, I can focus on the spectacle without worrying about the content.

TBG thinks Hillary seems more relaxed when Elizabeth is on the stage.  I couldn't get past the matching blue outfits and the hair and the nodding in synchronicity.  The notion of an all female ticket is intriguing, though I'd rather have Senator Warren in Congress than flying to state funerals in odd parts of the globe.  If adding her to the ticket motivates those who felt the Bern to take a more active role in getting out the vote, then I will be able to relax until November.

Every time the news reports that Mrs. Clinton has a double digit lead I begin to panic.  "Don't tell them that - they won't vote," screams the little voice in my head.  I worry that young people may feel disconnected from the two rich white people trying to run the country.  I worry that complacency will overtake common sense and right thinking people will stay home.  I know that the Trump contingent has gotten this far by putting their votes where their passions are; I have no reason to think they'll stop now.

George Will is no longer a Republican, because he can't stomach Donald Trump.  Scott Brown is trying the birther argument on Elizabeth Warren.  Bernie Sanders is still campaigning even though he admits he cannot win.  The facts are absurd.  I'm sticking with the visuals.  Can you blame me?

  1. I used to like Elizabeth Warren, but the more I know about her and hear her, the less I like her. I'd rather he chose Kaine from Va, I think. I also like Sherrod Brown, Senator from Ohio (we have donated to his campaign). He's not fiery though and I guess Hillary likes that Elizabeth can get down and dirty. I don't. I also think it'll hurt them the negative things Warren said about Hillary before. To me this all makes Warren look ambitious and that she'd do anything for power as obviously she's thinking beyond to this being a platform to be President. Anyway, there's no choice for voting for Hillary much as I'll be holding my nose to do it. And Hillary fans don't need to tell me how wonderful she is. I don't buy it and it's based on her personality, past ethics, who sponsors her, and record. But can't vote for Trump and don't want to see him as President; so I have to vote for Hillary whoever she picks. It's the most disillusioning campaign season I ever remember

    1. Yes to everything you say.
      I do like listening to Elizabeth Warren tear into Trump, though :-)

  2. I love them both. I was telling hubby this morning that it sickened me when I heard someone say, are we ready for an all-woman ticket? Are you freakin' kidding me?! We've had all-male tickets! Are we in 2016 or 1916? I cannot believe that anyone could even be thinking this. Are we still that ass-backwards?

    I would LOVE for Hillary to pick Warren. That's my dream ticket, but Kaine and Castro are great too. Kaine was our governor and many people in Virginia still love him. He was very well liked by both parties.

  3. In case you are good at resume writing, there will be no trouble for you to do it. But what is you don't? It is better for you not to torture yourself but check military resume writing services and order your resume there.
