I guess I was within a few hundred meters of him last night, when he spoke in Lowell and I was eating dinner. But I went to the Star Wars movie instead. Even if that movie hadn't been the kind of thing I like (I wouldn't think it would be a favorite of yours), I think it would be more enjoyable than seeing somebody who would just get me pissed off.

Trump is going to be in Burlington, VT the night after next. Thickets also available on-line though I heard they were sold out right after they were available. The tickets were free and I suspect many/most were gobbled up by antagonists. It will be interesting watching the news Thursday night.

And I have a theory about Trump which is that he really doesn't want to be president. But, he's too far in and can't quit--that wouldn't be his style-- so he keeps saying the most absurd things, hoping that will be his downfall. It's not working yet but give him time.

I almost had the opportunity to see him at the Barclays at Plainfield this year. Apparently he afflicted the grounds, but I had already evacuated. I was blissfully unaware.

Nah. We'll build a wall. We know how.

And you'll get us to pay for it.

PG, you missed Trump talking about Canada (and Cruz)!

Heck we need that wall to keep Cruz out and to protect the American Dream that is alive and well in Canada (he says as the Cdn dollar plummets). ;-)

all in good fun. Anyway, your American politics make for good entertainment (yet scary at the same time).

@Canada, Re: TCruz:

You can have him back now...

While I thought Donald was a Clinton plot, now I realize he is a Canadian one. By driving out many of America's best and brightest, you will catapult to the top of the national league tables overnight. Well played ;)

National League? I though Canada only had an American League team since the Expos left.

Have any of you ever heard the name "Buzz" Windrip? His fictional campaign bears an alarming resemblance to the pronouncements of Donald Trump. We all should head to the Used Books store and pick up copies of Sinclair Lewis' 'It Can't Happen Here' because it is happening.

I also thought Trump doesn't really want to be president & thought saying really absurd things would knock him out. Not working, if that's his plan ... It is kind of fun to watch, but scary, because he's really got supporters. I read an article comparing him to Rob Ford, and showing that, as Ford got elected in one of the most liberal cities in North America, so, too, could Trump get elected. Chilling.
Where in Canada should we be scoping out? (Here's where watching a lot of HGTV comes in handy.)
