BTRTN: Hey Republicans... What if Donald Trump Were the Mayor of Your Town?

BTRTN on whether Republicans would award Donald Trump an 87% approval rating if he were the mayor of their local town:

http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2018/06/btrtn-hey-republicanswhat-if-donald.html

Excerpt: "Most people, it seems, are rather apathetic about our national political crisis, our constitutional rights, and our freedoms until those sacred principles are violated on their own block. It’s sort of like conservatives and gays: they find homosexuality morally repugnant until their daughter comes out of the closet... Allow me, my Republican friend, to depict how this presidency would feel to you if everything the Donald Trump was doing on a national basis were being done by some local political hack who got elected mayor of your town...

"If any one of the acts that we have described here – just one -- had been committed by your local mayor, you would be justifiably ballistic. You would be up in arms in rage. You would fight tooth and nail to protect the civility, decency, and charity that defined your community. You would fight for your town. Please... Stop watching Fox News and kidding yourself that Sean Hannity’s perverted, self-interested version of reality is actually the truth. Don’t kid yourself thinking you can wear a hat that says “Make America Great Again” while wearing a jacket that says, “I really don’t care.” You’d care if it was happening to your wife. Your daughter. Your son. Your home. Your job. Your friends. Your town. I wouldn't tolerate this shameful behavior if it was being done by a Democrat. You shouldn't ignore it because it is being committed by a Republican..."

BTRTN: To Bee, or Not To Bee

Born to Run the Numbers on the latest in our 21st Century Cultural Civil War... the shit for shat between Barr and Bee.

http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2018/06/to-bee-or-not-to-bee.html

Excerpt:
"Let’s start with the issue of the comparison of the two cases: Roseanne Barr accusing an African American of being a mutant creature than is less than a human being is exponentially worse on the Richter Scale of fire-able offenses than anything Sam Bee said. It is one of the worst examples of racism I can remember since… well, now that I think about it, it actually wasn’t all that long ago that Donald Trump called African countries “shitholes...”

"But to have anyone call a woman – no matter how loathsome that woman is – the “c” word, and to have no formal redress beyond an apology appears to me to be a concession that this vile word is now fair game for anyone. Who wants that world for our children?

"In the end, if we justify calling Donald Trump’s daughter the “c” word because Trump himself has debased our national dialog to the point where we feel we can only be heard if we are as crude, cruel, and evil as Trump is, then he has actually finally won. Then we have become what he is, and then he really does deserve to be President of the United States."
