I suck at guy talk

I was standing around with a few other Dads watching our kids play at the park. They seemed to have pretty good banter with each other. I'm not very social but I tried to get some "Guy talk" in like they were doing. I waited for a lull in the convo and said, "Hey guys, don't you hate it when you keep from scratching your face (to not muss up your make up) and then later walk by a mirror to discover "I'm not rocking face paint today, it's my day off." {crickets} I suck at guy talk

Republican media survey.

I just read the Republican media survey.
I didn't want to actually take it for fear of ending up on a list.
This really is manipulative.
It reminded me of being on the bus one time.
We were on the #4 bus. A dude got on and immediately went to the first attractive woman he saw.
His script was well honed. He says "Hi I'm Clarece, what's you name. Even if the lady was reading or talking he would still aggressively interrogate her. "Where are you going oh, to work? Where you work? They sometimes answered and he would repeat back the lowest form of that job. "Oh you work at a hospital, what do you do? clean up in the cafeteria?" (her) "no I'm a radiologist." That exchange really happened, that's why I remember this so well. Women would rightfully tell him to buzz off. The bus was crowded so he had lots of women to go through. It didn't seem to bother him that the lady he just talked to was right next to the one he currently was talking to hearing the same script. As I observed it dawned on me what he was doing. He was playing a numbers game looking for low self esteem. Before we got to our stop he had found a shy girl who was giggling with him and mostly looking at the ground. They got off together. Most of the folks on the bus were mortified.
That guys parasitic game reminds me of this parasitic game. They are playing a numbers game looking for disgruntled people who don't study much but do watch a lot of tv. They found a lot of them so far.
I know scams, everything about 45 is a scam, not even a good scam, it's like a Nigerian Email scam or a faith healer. 
So whack. It tries so hard to manipulate the incorrect answers it wants. It reads like an angry parent trying to get a child to talk bad about the other parent during a custody case. It
is a great lesson on manipulation. I wish all the country was smart enough to see this for what it is. Sadly people are dumb and hateful enough to fall for this. What a train wreck.

Yeah what they said.

You voted for Trump because Clinton was going to be in Wall Street's pocket. Trump wants to repeal Dodd-Frank and eliminate the Fiduciary Rule, letting Wall Street return to its pre-2008 ways.
You voted for Trump because of Clinton's emails. The Trump administration is running its own private email server.
You voted for Trump because you thought the Clinton Foundation was "pay for play." Trump has refused to wall off his businesses from his administration, and personally profits from payments from foreign governments.
You voted for Trump because of Clinton's role in Benghazi. Trump ordered the Yemen raid without adequate intel, and tweeted about "FAKE NEWS" while Americans died as a result of his carelessness.
You voted for Trump because Clinton didn't care about "the little guy." Trump's cabinet is full of billionaires, and he took away your health insurance so he could give them a multi-million-dollar tax break.
You voted for Trump because he was going to build a wall and Mexico was going to pay for it. American consumers will pay for the wall via import tariffs.
You voted for Trump because Clinton was going to get us into a war. Trump has provoked our enemies, alienated our allies, and given ISIS a decade's worth of recruiting material.
You voted for Trump because Clinton didn't have the stamina to do the job. Trump hung up on the Australian Prime Minister during a 5pm phone call because "it was at the end of a long day and he was tired and fatigue was setting in."
You voted for Trump because foreign leaders wouldn't "respect" Clinton. Foreign leaders, both friendly and hostile, are openly mocking Trump.
You voted for Trump because Clinton lies and "he tells it like it is." Trump and his administration lie with a regularity and brazenness that can only be described as shocking.
Let's be honest about what really happened.
The reality is that you voted for Trump because you got conned. Trump is a grifter and the American people were the mark. Now that you know the score, quit insisting the con-man is on your side.
