Trump

I don't know what you think about Trump! But I decided to raise the topic here as I think he was preternaturally created from fiction literature, that is as Jethro Furber in Omensetter's Luck by William H. Gass in 1966.
My budding theories on this are growing exponentially here:

George Soros seems to be preternaturally created from fiction literature. Soros is like a James Bond villain.

Re: Trump

The NEA has little to do do with "traditional art." I'd support it if it did. Do we need to subsidize works like "Piss Christ" or the inanities of so-called performance artists? Reread my post.

Just my opinion.

It amuses me that some think I'm a Conservative. In truth, some of my political positions would hardly be welcomed by the Right: limited amnesty for Illegals without felony convictions, legalization of drugs, and so forth.

Still, these days I have more sympathy for Conservatives as opposed to those on the Left. Wasn't always like that.

Re: Trump

I have many sympathies with the American libertarian movement, apart from when it comes to economics because they're hilariously wrong.

Traditional Art was once avant garde.
I see myself as a sort of Avant Garde Traditionalist.
Meanwhile, the Trumpish trend seems generally anti-Art and anti-Literature, does it not?
Still we shall all likely be IN dark art soon anyway via the perceived Trumpish attitude to Global Warm(onger)ing!

I wholeheartedly agree that stuff like the Christ in urine thing is a pointless endeavor as art of its kind isn't about furthering any sort of craft or mastery of artistic mediums, but simply shocking people. It indeed shouldn't be bothered with by anybody, much less the government.

But, that's not really my point. My point is that Trump and his party don't really care about art one way or another, like many other things. The money isn't in giving grants to worthy artists and expanding funding for education. It is evident that Trump doesn't want to do anything but to diminish every service of the government and put forth money for anything except maybe the military.

Re: Trump

I am fine with Trump. I am fine with Hillary too, if she had won. Alot of educated middle class people around me voted for Trump, and I somewhat understand his appeal to them. Trump appears like an un-PC rebel, iconoclast of the century against Hillary's smug establishment attitude of I-cannot-possibly-lose. They also called her a liar for all the scandals she got involved in.

Once we commit ourselves to a passion, noble or sordid, it is of no importance, we are certain to proceed from torment to torment. The very aptitude to endure them shows that we are predestined to suffer. We love only because unconsciously we have renounced happiness. The Brahmanic adage is irrefutable: 'Each time you create a new tie, you drive another pain, like a nail, into your heart.'

Re: Trump

If only the Arrogance of the True Believer could be harnessed for the production of home heating energy we'd never run out of hot air... I think I shall leave the Enlightened in peace to enjoy their self-righteous buzz. Tolerance was never a quality of the neoLiberals.

Re: Trump

My contribution to Conservatism:

Opossums don't hibernate; they're not that lucky and have a hard time making it through the winter. One little guy or gal snuck into my cellar and apparently wants to winter it out there without turning into a block of ice (he ain't no polar bear for sure). Wth. I'll let him winter it out since he finds the cat food agreeable. When March comes, I'll kick his long-tailed ass out.
That's as far as my interest in Conservation goes. Humans can take care of themselves.

I call 'im Brown Jenkin.
