Escape from North Portland

Okay.

Coffee's on, cats are fed.
Got the ballistic vest and two full magazines for the AR-10, the older kid says he'll man the fifty-cal in the turret for the run in to work this morning.

Just another Casual Friday in the post-apocalyptic hellscape that Donald Trump assured me just last night is the Obamerica we now live in.
I hear this stuff he says and I want to laugh; that our country is a festering shithole simultaneously over-regulated yet terrifyingly crimeridden and impoverished? Elect me because my magical Trumpenpowers will make everything great again!

I...doh...guh...I can't even...what kind of fucking third-grader believes that nonsense?

And then I look at the numbers and see that something between 3 and 4 out of 10 of my fellow citizens ARE no smarter than that fucking third-grader, and it makes me want to weep.

Actual I thought Trump was fantasizing about Gotham City and how the great BatTrump was the only one that could safe all of us poor scared citizens.

Based on that idiotic thing about how on January 20, 2017 all the evil would pass away and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands, I suspect that he does, indeed harbor such ridiculous fantasies.

Hey, I think you are being unfair to third graders.

The ones I knew were pretty smart and were quick learners to boot (sometimes to my dismay as they would cheerfully throw my words back at me)
