Caption This Photo, Morans!

Charles Ashby at the Grand Junction Sentinel Tweets a memorable photo from yesterday’s pro-Donald Trump rally in Grand Junction:

“Where is the emails?” asks ‘Merica! Answer: they’ve been “destored.”

It’s okay, though. As long as they can find the bubble next to “Trump,” their vote will count.

    I thought these folks were for English only.

    • BlueCat says:

      English is so elitist.  What these people speak and write is perfect Trumpian.  It's going to be our official language as soon as Trump is sworn in and you can help bring about that happy day by voting third party.yes

    Bringing back literacy tests will disenfranchise the deplorables and the irredeemables.

      I wouldn't want to disenfranchise anyone, even a deplorable. Dismay, dissuade, disprove, disobey, disorder, perhaps….but not disenfranchise.

        Just lock 'em up.

        But mama, these people are too dumb to be allowed to vote!devil I don't want a literacy test. I want an IQ test. Back when my wife and I were election judges in our precinct, there was a guy who never missed an election. He had a learning disability and could not read. Two judges (one D, one R, as per the rules) would have to go into the booth with him and read him the entire ballot; candidate by candidate, issue by issue. He made perfectly reasonable decisions, despite his disability. So a literacy test wouldn't tell you spit.

          I don't care. I wouldn't suppress their votes if I could – neither would I allow them to suppress mine, or any citizen's.  The right to vote underlies all other American rights.

          Ben Franklin wrote:"There is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, …and can only end in Despotism, …, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other."

          The "morans" may believe that they need a despotic government, but the majority of American people do not agree. They believe enough in democracy to extend its blessings even to those who would prefer despotism.

          I remember when I registered a voter who kept trying to be provocative, talking shit about Obama, throwing out slurs about Mexicans, etc. He was astonished when I helped him complete his form. Then he wanted his form back because he thought I'd throw it away or something. So I gave him a paper with the info on how to register online. He really wanted me to prove that I wouldn't help him to vote.

          ummm….  an IQ  test probably wouldn't either. Feel your pain but….

    The Republican Party is the party of Family Values  Faulty Vowels.

    It's no wonder you need a college degree for jobs that used to only require a High School diploma. Apparently the latter no longer means you know how to speak, read or write any language including English. Not a caption…. just a thought.

  6. Big Time says:

    A mind is a terrible thing to waste. 

  7. ParkHill says:

    You realize, don't you, that the mis-spellings are intentional? It is a strategy to get the sign into the media or re-tweeted.

    The Tea Party movement was funded by the Koch brothers, and the signs were carefully hand written to make it look like it was grass roots.

    And these are likely the same folks that bitched about "Ebonics" when it was a thing….
