Explains a lot though doesn't it? It's two different countries. If you live somewhere where you can drive for 10 hours and not see another living soul, your opinion on stuff like guns is gonna be very different from someone who lives in the suburbs of a big city.

I recently drove across Utah into Phoenix, through Monument Valley passed the Grand Canyon. It was my first trip to the US. In the UK my Sat Nav says stuff like "In 400 yards, take the first exit at the round-about then immediately left then keep right." On my drive through the US it said "Turn left in 174 miles."

 

Was an amazing trip though.

Used to work with an American lad, one of the nicest, gentlest people I ever met even though he looked dead hard, like a white version of Odd Job. 

 

Poor bastard had come from Minesota to Speke as he'd married some bird off the internet.

 

He went home for a few weeks and brought some snaps back with him. Him and his entire family, including nan, were decked out in camouflage gear, including caps and combat pants and holding rifles for a day out hunting. You could see his eyes glazing over looking at the pics just wishing he was back there chasing elk of whatever the fuck.

Haha. I know what you mean.

 

We went into a bar. The windows had that opaque glass squares thing that some places have when they don't want you to see how bad it is inside.

One of the squares had been shot through with a gun. A sign on the window warned that firearms aren't welcome inside. Another sign said "Liberalism is a mental health condition". Everyone inside was dressed just as you have described.

 

We walked in looking like like Denholm Eliiot in tThe Last Crusade. "Hullo. Does anyone in here speak English...or Ancient Greek?".

 

There was a Karaoke going on. They all sang Tammy Wynette songs...or songs about dead dawgs...a serious Country and Western theme. My mate signed us up...to sing 500 miles by the proclaimers.

You’d get someone from a prison in Guatemala reminiscing with glazed eyes if you moved the fucker to Speke

That was an hour that flew by. His precedence was/is, as chaotic as you'd imagine. Perception is, he's a willy wonka showman character in a world of politics, with a large dose of JR Ewing and Mr Bean for good measure.

The second episode was up on iplayer straight away. Surely there’ll never be anything like him as POTUS again, so in some ways I’ll miss him when he’s gone.

In 1998 I spent 8 weeks in travelling cross the USA. I went from New York City to Los Angeles via the North of the country and then back to NYC via the South & then to weeks going from NYC down to Atlantic City (went in the drumpf Taj Mahal hotel & casino which was really tack, even for a casino), on to DC then up to Niagra, before heading to Boston and then back to NYC. 

I loved my trip around the East Coast (lot of my musical heroes are from round there) & the journey from NYC to LA via the north of the country was amazing. The scenery constantly changed and the people for the most very friendly and welcoming (and the ladies love a British accent old boy!).  However once we got 75% across it's noticeable how bland the terrain gets, all flat and increasingly desert like barring a few places.  Loved San Francisco & northern California but once in LA and then heading back to NYC via the south it really is a totally different place. Definitely more places to avoid and there where more folks who were 'ignorant' about the world outside their front porch. 

I do love many things about the US & when the world settles down a little I'd love to go back to Chicago, San Fran & up to Washington State. I can see why drumpf won last time given my experiences in '98. I can also see why he holds such sway with his base, what I can't fathom now is why people who voted for him last time would vote for him again.  

Hope the cunt gets crushed at the ballot box and if he does appeal, he gets laughed out of court. He's not just dangerous to the US, he's now dangerous to the entire world.

I'm gonna call it now, I think he's gonna get trounced, like a historical drubbing. 

 

Reading about the rise in demand for Scottish independence yesterday, and I think when the shit hits the fan like with Covid it prompts a desire for change, it's just an instinct that 'nothing could ne worse than this', same when the British public booted Churchill out after the war. 

 

Even if Trump wasn't nuts and was handling Covid as best as he reasonably could, I think tumultuous times still breed a desire to flip the script and see what happens.

Texas is close, if Biden can, insanely, take Texas it's all over because of the fucked up way the election works.

 

Ohio can go fuck it's self.

 

I'm starting to agree, but I've been burnt before...

His reaction to getting questioned about his tweets and re-tweets (QA'non, White Supremacist stuff, false news etc) "lets not waste an hour on this" fucking coward.

If he really thinks that, maybe he should spend an hour less each night on the shitter tweeting 'witty'responses to girl guide packs in Arse Bend, Arizona.

we’re all hoping for a trouncing but I can’t help but feel something is seriously fucked up could happen. I just can’t put it past Trump and his supporters to try it. It’s a pivotal moment in history.

Was talking about this in work today. If/when he loses, I think it will ignite the powder keg that is his support. I'm more worried about what could happen if he loses than if he wins.

 

If anyone didn't see the first part of The Trump Show last night, get it watched.
