    How Booing Trump Corrects Media Bias

    It's rare is to see that most common thing: regular people who hate the president.

    . . . and, oh yeah, if you haven’t done so already (and, why not, huh?) don’t forget to drop your ballot off in person today!

    We just watched an incredible performance on CBS This Morning. Apparently, the oldest of the T***p larvae appeared to promote his new book.

    The T***p dynasty needs to end now…before that lunatic son of a bitch ever gets near a real seat of power. Junior is crazier than his father…if that's possible.

    Little surprise at any of the findings of the interviews done by Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the University of Colorado Boulder Leed’s School of Business. Trying to determine the "concerns regarding the middle-class and their views on foreign policy."   Denver Post excerpts:

    On the whole, people interviewed weren’t tracking trade negotiations with China, or the civil war in Yemen, or Iran’s resumption of uranium enrichment or the Paris climate agreement.

    What mattered most to them were rising costs for housing, health care, child care and education, domestic issues largely detached from foreign policy.

    “We don’t feel people were well informed about foreign policy. They are so much more focused on what is going on here,” said Rich Wobbekind, executive director of the Leeds Business Research Division.

      Yep, it is an eternal truth that it's the economy stupid!  And unless you have been investing in the (often rigged) stock market for the last 30 years, you have been left behind with little hope of catching up.

    Duke, you were correct. Trump will never give up the White House. How could you have known?
