So I did a thing, it might be on the news
« on: June 15, 2016, 03:23:38 PM »
I've been at a Trump rally all day.

I went with an old friend, and all her transsexual friends.

We protested Trump holding a fund raiser at the fox theater.

Apparently I gave an interview and went on a rant about healthcare. I told the atlanta journal and constitution that I'm positive

sorry about the horrid spelling earlier, all thumbs on a phone in the blazing sun

i dunno, thinking maybe i end up regreting that rant to the journal...  ;D >:( but at least it was a pretty damn good one.. fuck it, what's done is done

in the end there were a few hundred people... all in all, it was a lot of fun, we stopped traffic for about an hour, drums and whistles and chants

there were a lot of rainbow flags, so we weren't alone

didn't get arrested, that's always a good thing, and i met "killer mike"!

nah, i was just there to add to the crowd.

i did learn if i'm oging  to protest, some of those activists have strong game. i need to step it up

drums, portable PA system, chants written, tactics... they were very well organized

i was caught off guard when media wanted to talk to me... i should have been a little better prepared, i probably sounded like i was stoned

i guess trump said some things inside to the effect of the lgbt community agrees with him and supports him... some of the more seasoned activists there had some brilliant responses. but my berlin wall sign made it onto the local abc news website.

i've always called those two and new orleans the jewels of the south. you could also add milledgeville to the list, many of the antebellum mansions there were spared during the civil war.

Milledgeville, GA, is also where the great American writer (to my mind, the best since Faulkner) was raised and always considered home:  Flannery O'Connor.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flannery_O%27Connor

If you're not familiar with her deeply dark, very humorous, and profoundly religious work (she was a devout Catholic), start with her "A Good Man is Hard to Find" collection.  Tragically, her life was cut short by lupus when she was a mere 39 (like so many artists who had shortened lives due to aids, when you think about it), but her canon will live on as long as American literature exists.

You can't forget Athens and Madison either. And then there is the hollywood of the south, Covington GA.

Even my mother has come round to saying that Trump is (in her very own words) "...really scary. I mean he's smart in his own way, but really scary".

Trump says that the US  military should leave Japan.
We have  controversies as to whether we should be militarized ourselves but seven decades have passed since we were demilitarized and we definitely need the US  assistance until we have an answer for the future.   North Korea is just right there.

Daniel, how is Trump portrayed by the media there?

Really, that question stands for any of our international members that happen to read this.

Are you alarmed? Do you political leaders seem alarmed?

In truth, I seriously doubt he will be elected. In fact, I think the results will be the most one sided we've seen here in decades. For most of my life elections have been won with very narrow margins. We've become a very binary and bipolar society. Left/Right Blue/Red and every issue is cleanly divided along those lines.

We have a saying here, "dog whistle politics".. and that seems to be all Trump does.

Hi, Zach,

Here, the leftists are supporting the idea of no US military presence and of maintaining the demilitarization but the present majority party Liberal Democratic PARTY has the idea of changing the constitution so that we can form the military, not just the self defense forces.   Naturally, the politicians of the majority party know that our forces will not be sufficient in the cases of emergency since we have not have fought for seventy years.  They are alarmed by the news from the US reportingTrump leading in this and that place.

l presume many Japanese lawmakers are ready to stay low when Hillary comes here calling a spade a spade. I am looking forward to that.

Maybe l should live in the ENGLISH-speaking country for some time.

Slang is not easy for me.    In summer 1984,  l watched the movie GHOST BUSTERS in LA .
In the scene where a beautiful young gal turned into a monster, Bill Murray said,  She is a dog, and the whole audience  laughed.  I didn't know why.   Later my friend told me why.    There are many examples like this l have had.

By the way,  this Midwest friend of mine raved about how strongly she was feeling against Trump.
She is married to a local guy here and is very sensitive about the racial issues in the US.
She is angry with her friend writing on the facebook that Obama looks like a monkey.
Anyway she says she will vote for Hillary through the US Embassy here in TOKYO .
