Rabbitnexus -- "The Media" has been destroying itself for decades. The rubes just don't think through what it means when "the media" set themselves to destroy a Ross Perot or a Donald Trump. If the rubes ever figure it out, "the media" will be burned out of their newspapers and studios and media workers who escape the flames will be fugitives with a price on their heads trying to flee the country. When things arrive at THAT pass, THEN you can say "The media has been destroyed." But "the media" will never destroy itself. Suicide is politically incorrect, and when all is said: "the media" simply haven't got the guts.

I know what Killary SAYS she will do. But anything she promises to do is typically a thing she has no intention of doing. I for one don't think she deserves a chance to serve in the Oval Orifice. I'd rest easier if they'd give the job to Bernie Sanders, who (events have shown) lies every time he opens his yap. At least Bernie is consistent in his way. We could all be a little less nervous if he had the job.

PCR is gathering prestige in my eyes. As Tim Conway used to say: "Gee, I love that kinda talk!"

Ivan: It's only natural that Eurasia SHOULD dominate the eastern hemisphere, at least. Put Asia and Europe together, you got about 80 percent of the global population. Should they -- WOULD they -- sit back and allow themselves to be work as coolies for Washington, DC? You may think they should but I kindly doubt that they will. If their intentions are peaceful, we should all breathe a sigh of relief because the air (not yet radioactive) is easy to breathe and (as long as we stop our war-mongering) it seems likely to stay that way. I love my nifty Korean computer. . . .

The reason so many assholes go to work for NGOs is that they can't get themselves elected or appointed to any position that requires good sense. I believe "delusionally stupid," writ large in English, translates to either INSANE or NUCKIN' FUTS.

Regarding those who would violently oust Vladimir Putin, I say: "Sic 'em, Mr. Putin!" Run 'em down, skin 'em, and nail their hides to the door of the Kremlin's outhouse.

Yours truly,

They're not all stupid. Many of them don't read much; they don't have time for reading; their heads are full of TV; all of which are solid reasons to tone down the vocabulary. On the other hand, the things Stein talks about are too many and too complex. Americans want good jobs, higher wages, lower utility bills, cheaper housing, etc. That's what they all want to hear about, in plain language. But I don't think they get that from her. They want meat and potatoes, she's giving them hamburgers and lettuce salad. She is the most UNexciting speaker I've heard on the stump this year.

If you like her, you like her; that's OK. But she sure doesn't speak to me.

Philip -- I don't believe you'd be able to follow your conscience in Iowa, where -- so far as I know -- the Constitution Party isn't on the ballot. If they are, I never heard anyone mention them on TV or radio or the Internet. So I don't think they'll get many votes here.

Finally, I don't see why I can't vote for The Donald and still be following my conscience -- which tells me not to vote for Hillary. I won't be voting for the lesser of two evils. I will be voting for the best of a VERY bad lot.

Stein doesn't speak the working-class argot. She has a reasonably good message, but she talks over the heads of blue-collar voters. She talks instead to those of us who've been to graduate school. She means well, but she doesn't know what she's doing when she's on the stump.

And another thing: the campaign of 1956. Democrats ran Adlai Stevenson, who was a brilliant intellectual. Ike and his GOP fried Stevenson for an 'egghead' and blue-collars ate it up -- with bacon and toast and butter, of course.

Read about it. See if I"m lyin'.
