  1. There is only one party. It is called “The Party.”

  2. Lemme ask you, what good is “draining the swamp” if only to repack it with the same old snakes that have lived there for decades?

    If Trump didn’t know already, he is finding out now, it’s not the people, it’s the system that is flawed.

    No doubt Trump has been very successful in the quasi-free market (QFM) where logic, intelligence, common sense, and testosterone are the business man’s tools.

    But the american gov’t has a whole different workshop that it works in that is counter to that of the business man.

    Success in the QFM requires the business owner to hire competent help and compensate them in a manner that is beneficial to the business.
    Success also means dismissing hired help when they are no longer beneficial to the business.

    If an employee is a liability to the business now and in the future clearly the business manager (BM) has made a poor business decision (BD) which negatively effects the business’s bottom line.

    Hundreds of gov’t BM’s (politicians and bureaucrats) over a period of decades have made thousands of poor BDs which have been negatively effecting the gov’ts bottom line for a long time.

    The gov’t is currently $20,000,000,000,000.00 (Twenty trillion dollars) in debt because of poor decisions.

    In the QFM when a BM does such a thing his ability to do so is removed and he is no longer a liability to the business.

    The BM is replaced and the negative effect to the bottom line is remedied quickly.

    If this is not done in a timely manner the business will fail and many people, investors and others, will lose a lot of money.

    When the gov’t makes poor decisions that negatively effect the bottom line the costs are passed onto others that are completely unrelated to the infractions.

    The people that are held financially responsible for the bad decisions of the gov’t have no opportunity to stop this behavior.

    First, it is morally wrong to force people to pay for the actions of others.
    Second, it is also morally wrong to not hold people accountable for their actions.

    Both of these things are at the root of continuous gov’t failure and filling the swamp with people that lived in violation of those two things will insure the gov’t will continue to run as it always has.

    There are despicable people working for the gov’t and those same type of people work in the QFM but they have limited impact as explained above.
    But it is the underlying system of gov’t that creates an environment where the same swamp predators continue to ruin the business model over and over with no accountability to themselves.

    In the QFM these predators are criminals but in the gov’t they are lauded and rewarded, as Trump is doing right now.

    Essentially, the gov’t business model is a failure so it is no wonder that it fails and it will continue to fail until the model is changed.

    I am not certain Trump alone can change the gov’t business model so draining the swamp is basically a waste of time because the new predators will continue to destroy the bottom line the same as the old predators have. In other words, putting a new paint job on a car with a blown engine will not get you to your destination.

    I’d like to see “Trump’s Complete Vehicle Repair Center” do a full ground-off rotisserie restoration of the entire gov’t model based upon sound QFM principles and staffed by persons that are not experienced in swamp tactics. If he does that I and millions of other citizens will have renewed faith in the system but if he does not we will continue to carry extreme skepticism and scorn on all gov’t practices.

    • You should be writing articles instead of comments.

      Not a dig.

      If you’re going to put that much thought and effort into a comment it might as well be expanded into an article.


    • Fuck man, I’d vote for YOU. You know, if you were actually dumb enough to WANT the gig. Great read, sir.

      “If Trump didn’t know already, he is finding out now, it’s not the people, it’s the system that is flawed.”

      It well may all ride on that. If it’s Trump actually learning and by extension everyone else learning too, that could be a magnificent thing. Still a good spot for a Plan B though.

  3. It’s a shit sandwhich no matter how much Nutella you put on it. This American fascination w/ quixotism & political sycophants cronyism is how we got here & not where we need to go. It’ over & the sooner those who don’t listen feel pain the better. Kicking the can down the road to continuing to try to teach a Pig to sing, only annoys the pig & wastes your time. The PTB shook the test tube real fookin good this time. The Petri dish is overfilled & running over w/ freaks, consciously ignorant by choice & ignorance by circumstances, useless eaters, miscreants, chemically altered zombie’s that can’t function normally in society. The fact that Trump would even consider Mr. Bane Capitol – Caymen Island shill for political criminals & economic hitmen tells anyone w/ any discernment all they need to know.

    • PO'd American

      Actually Matt…Mittins is going to Cuber, and Higula is going to Libya as their new Ambassadors.

      “The fact that Trump would even consider Mr. Bane Capitol…”

      We don’t really know this as a fact. Trump can be tough to read and seems to have an unusual value structure…might have been playing the whole time. Guy LOVES having that ring kissed. That may prove to be trouble since there are a ton of sick-fucks only too ready to kiss anything to get to “work.”

        Sure we do…

        “In addition to Goldman, Mnuchin also worked at Soros Fund Management, whose founder, George Soros, has funded many left-leaning causes. Where it gets even more bizarre is that Mnuchin has donated frequently to Democrats, including to Clinton and Barack Obama.”

  4. If you think this dirtbag is bad, wait ’til GUN GRABBER
    betray-us is SoS. I got out of the gun business because of
    klinton..ITAR… UN gun ban… betrayus will get this all done.
    Drain the swamp? trump’s pumping more water into it!

  5. All of you; stop second guessing Trump. He’s done more for American than all of you COMBINED

    STFU already.

      “All of you; stop second guessing Trump.”

      Gee, thanks. My mom used a hairbrush. You?

      You can save it anyway; pretty sure HUD’s already taken.

  6. The Spider And The Fly (excerpt)

    The spider turned him round about, and went into his den,
    For well he knew the silly fly would soon be back again:
    So he wove a subtle web, in a little corner sly,
    And set his table ready to dine upon the fly.
    Then he came out to his door again, and merrily did sing
    “Come hither, hither, pretty fly, with the pearl and silver wing:
    Your robes are green and purple; there’s a crest upon your head;
    Your eyes are like the diamond bright, but mine are dull as lead.”

    Alas, alas! how very soon this silly little fly,
    Hearing his wily flattering words, came slowly flitting by.
    With buzzing wings she hung aloft, then near and nearer drew
    Thinking only of her brilliant eyes, and green and purple hue;
    Thinking only of her crested head — poor foolish thing! At last,
    Up jumped the cunning spider, and fiercely held her fast.
    He dragged her up his winding stair, into his dismal den,
    Within his little parlor; but she ne’er came out again!

  7. It is amazing to me that Trump is actually considering nominating Romney after the pre election shenanigans pulled by him. Romney went out of his way to condemn Trump. And now he wants to make nice with him ?

    Must be some kind of ruse (Keep your friends close – your enemies closer).

    A chess game isn’t it…I hope Trump has an end game in mind that will benefit his base. Romney isn’t the chess piece to be played seriously. I really think that Trump doesn’t have much to choose from for his cabinet on purpose. Many players have been possibley threatened if they join his cabinet? Maybe? I’d like to know whose idea was it to keep going back to Romney?! Sounds like a plant to me.

  10. WTF is that bullshit on their plates? Jumbo marshmallows?
    Where’s the fuckin’ NY strip?

  11. Its the master plan man.”psstt…hey this week you win,and then next week I will,and then you say this and I will say that”….and the rubes fall for the SoS again.WRESTLEMANIA!WOoOOHOOoo!

  12. I am not convinced that Mittens will be in the cabinet. I think this could be a big slap to his face.
    Bring him in give him the “interview” make it all public then make a very public “nah!” and go with someone else.
    I could be wrong and he may make the cut.

  13. Mistake to hire Romney; but that face is the face of a ball washer

  14. All this BS about Trump having no choice but to hire insiders is wrong. He could randomly pick people off the streets of Bumfuck Iowa for all these jobs, who would do less damage than these lowlifes do. What ordinary businessman would have pushed to get tangled in that mess in Ukraine or Syria?

  15. Who is the other person at the table? Rinse and repeat Priebus. This is a quid pro quo selection. Priebus supported Romney after the convention and now expects a reach around from Trump. The machine must get their next milk toast establishment nominee in the spotlight before the next election cycle. Obama and Hitlery / Trump and Romney… Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

  16. Once you get to D.C., the swamp becomes a hot tub. It’s too tempting.

  17. This should remove some blinders hopefully. Anyone who starts throwing out Trump chess analogies, save it.

    You think it’s a coinkydink Goldman upped their S&P target on Trump hope today? Hank “Tanks in the Streets” Paulson thinks Mnuchin is a great pick. Mnuchin bought and sold Indymac the wonderful folks who managed 37% foreclosure rate on their reverse mortgage (read old folk loans) portfolio. Vampire Squid’s back at the wheel.

    • (((Mnuchin)))…”Wall St. (((Mogul))) with roots in (((Hollywood))).”

      but don’t worry, Trumpaholics. He’s still gonna build that Wall. And evict the illegals. And crush the sanctuary cities, and (etc.)

  18. Trump isn’t POTUS yet and Tom Baugh says he won’t be. Stick with Plan A – sharpen the tomahawk.

  19. Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
    Trump might be thinking:
    “Revenge is a dish best served cold – This chump campaigned against me, now he will do my bidding and enjoy it. Screw ups will be on him. And I’ll fire him when it suits me”
