Dealing with a Trump Troll

Be on the lookout for Trump Trolls! Trump Trolls are everywhere. While it is never a good idea to feed a Trump Troll, they can help one crystallize thoughts. Too bad thoughts are wasted on Trump Trolls, so I decided to turn my response into a Think of a Solution blog post in the hope that some thoughtful reader could get some value from it.

From Wikipedia Internet troll In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, often for their own amusement.

I recently got caught in a comment feed flame war with a Trump Troll in a Facebook comment debate. The Trump Troll said something that I thought was simply a misguided statement so I responded. It took a while before I realized that I was dealing with a Trump Troll! It is never a good idea to feed a Trump Troll so once I realized what I was dealing with I stopped following the conversation. Damn I hate Trump Trolls, but I did put a lot of thought into my response to his initial assertion which boiled down to that it really does not matter who becomes president. Here was my response to that.

So you are saying that Ronald Reagan did not really make a difference in policy vs if President Jimmy Carter would have had a second term. Are you saying that George Bush Jr would have been the same as Al Gore on a policy level not to mention foreign affairs? Are you saying that Bill Clinton had nothing to do with the CFMA and Glass–Steagall the two main causes of the 2008 collapse AND can you even comprehend the implications of the FACT that the person who helped Bill Clinton get the CFMA to become the law of the land is now the CFO of Hillary Clinton’s campaign? Are you even aware that there are currently 4 superior court judges 77+ in age and that it REALLY matters who the President is when the judges retire or pass away?

President Barack Obama is finishing his administration the way Bernie Sanders will start it. U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has never pandered to the right. Period. The job that is being ignored right now is changing the makeup of the House and the Senate, which is the key component to getting anything worthwhile to happen. And if you do not think a president can write policy then you should consider getting some more accurate political science books or you could just listen to the news…what do you think is going on in Washington between Barack Obama and the House of Congress now?

The near 100% media blackout of the Bernie Sanders campaign followed by assertions meant to demoralize his base is arguably the primary cause leading to Hillary Clinton’s 20% lead at this time and don’t think the Bernie Sanders supporters are going to forget it in November. A vote for Hillary now is a vote for Donald later, like it or not. Bernie Sanders can still win this race and will do much better than Hillary in November. The superdelegates are just the latest conspiracy aimed at demoralizing the Bernie Sanders base. Just like in 2008 they are not set until the convention which is in July. A good showing on the West Coast will more than make up for the current delegate difference, so all Bernie Sanders has to do now is not fall further behind and the makeup of the upcoming primaries are in states that will favor Bernie over Hillary.


If you are not keeping up with things, here are a few of the concerns people have with Hillary.

His response was “That is exactly what I am saying, they are all the same and it doesn’t matter who you vote for.” Then he got nasty and said some even more off the wall bs, at which point I realized that I had stepped into a Trump Troll’s trap, so I unfollowed the conversation. F-ing TROLLS SUCK!

Please do not feed a Trump Troll!

Yes, Let’s Talk…Thanks for daring to say it Bernie Sanders!

Imperialism has been a “gift that keeps on giving” that Europe has imposed on the World for centuries and it did not start there, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could move beyond that in the Twenty First Century! One of the BIG and I MEAN HUUUUUGE! differences between the foreign policies of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton is that Hillary Clinton wants to keep the status quo going and Bernie Sanders wants to emphasise dialogue.

I will do a series of articles on this topic including my thoughts on our relationship with Russia several countries in South America, but this article will focus on Iran.

Iran has played a very large role in US politics since 1980. It could be argued that some rather trivial mistakes made by President Jimmy Carter in 1979, mostly as a result of listening to bad advisors…a topic worth another set of articles…, led to the hostage crisis and gave ex-head of the CIA George Bush the opening he needed to orchestrate the October Surprise that ended up being the deciding factor in the 1980 election that brought the Reagan/Bush era into existence. It is hard to overstate what a drastic negative impact that had on the United States and World Politics in General.

This series of videos gives you a good overview of the history behind our current situation with Iran. Kind of a must watch.

Iran and The West 3/3: Nuclear Confrontation – BBC (Feb 21, 2009)
Episode 3 is the most telling regarding the current situation. The Bush administration was blocking any semblance of trust and Iran returned the favor by electing a hardline regime so the negotiations simply could not happen. Even when Iran was willing to talk, the Bush administration just put a line in the sand and when the Iranians complied the US moved the line. The film was made in 2009, so it ends with Obama extending a hand to the Iranians so now there is an agreement. But once again, the Republicans are trying to undermine it. If they do it will end in tears for everyone involved. The bottom line is: The Republicans SUCK!
