I'm Torn...

     Is it "train wreck" or "dumpster fire?"

     Nick Gillespie sets 'em up and knocks 'em down.

     Hey, look -- Whigs!

     Also, why does the convention logo look like the elephant is threatening a small bronosaurus?
     Remember, the Libertarian party is on the ballot in all fifty states, the Greens in 47, and there are lots of other choices.  The two big parties have given us decades of the same old suck and fail.  Let's try something else.

It's appropriate - the chorus seems to be "Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

It's half a guitar... I guess y'all really DO want Hildabeast... Good luck with that.

Is that supposed to be a wave, or Trump's hair?

As for Ms. Clinton vs. Mr Trump, I think either one would be an utter disaster in the White House. I'm not voting for would-be autocrats and it makes no difference to me if they are autocratic fascists or autocratic socialists. If you don't like that, stop reading my blog, because I'm not going to change.

I ordered some CDs off AmazonFrance (classical music:me ::retro tech:you). They got delivered today, and I discovered a fact that would twist the mind of any 30% tarriff Trumpette:. Amazon France shipped them from 7735 Winton Drive Indianapolis. Either you live in Paris or there's enough people like me to make stateside warehouses worth AmFr's money.

:), Jeffrey! Also, Indy is a huge center for warehousing.

I think that's the visual representation of Jimi Hendrix's acid trip when he played "The Star Spangled Banner" at Woodstock.

D.W. Drang said...

Joe: Heh.
After posting that I looked at what Old NFO wrote and back at the picture and remembered that Cleveland is the site of the Rock and Roll Museum, because that's where Alan Fried got busted for payola. Or something.

(Note: Spell Check thinks "heh" is spelled wrong, but it recognizes "payola.")

It is half a guitar. The joke was that it was ambiguous, even more so after editing.

I think it looks more like an elephant threatening a walrus. But maybe I need another beer.

My "In the spectrum" son called it a sh*tcom.

Roberta X said...

He's got a point. And more of the same, in a bent and smoky mirror, is coming up from The Other Guys.

"Let's try something else"?

Distract easily?

Roberta X said...

I dunno, Ed, do you?

I keep voting for (or being told to vote for) flippin' statists. I'm sick of them.

I like guns. I like free trade. I like the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, hell, I like all ten. Mr. Trump and Sec. Clinton differ in that she hates the Second as well as the other nine, and Mr. Trump is willing to act like he's okay with the Second but he's not any better than she is on the rest of the Bill of Rights. And dammit, you are willing to give him a pass on that if he leaves you your skeet gun?
