I found a meme this morning while checking Facebook.  It was one where Donald Trump allegedly said this quote in People magazine:

“If I were to run, I’d run as a Republican. They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie and they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific.”

There's only one from with that quote:  It's made up:  FactCheck.org gives us more details below:

However, the same website saw that Trump did twist the fact during his acceptance speech for the Republican nomination Thrusday night:

Just as Abraham Lincoln says, "Don't believe everything you see on the Internet."

The day, while I was walking to Walmart, I thought of something.  I think this Prsidential electionis a contenst to see which group will be marginalzied for the next few years.  With the traditionally caucasian, tradionally male, traditionally evangelical, upper class be marginalzied--if Hilary Clinton wins. Or will the pluralistic sector of society, including the poor, the eldery, the non-cacasian, and the emotinally-, physically-, and mentally- challenged, will be marginalized--if Donald Trump wins.  Nobody seems to want to talk about united the two factions.  As was the case in 1860, the United States is divided. 

And I wonder if I it will ever be reunited.

Addendum to #5:  We don't need the STAR TREK gang travelling through time.  That's this guy's job:






(Captain Kirk traveling through time will never be as cool Peter Capaldi's Doctor playing an electic guitar atop a tank in a Dark Fortress.  Sorry Steve.)

There are more important things--especially this year--than whether New "Ghostbusters" is a slap in the face against the old one."--Me, a few days ago.

The more I think about the hubbub surrounding the new "Ghostbusters" movie, the more I think it's a metaphor for the 2016 Presidentials election.  For the election we have a plurailistic Democrat versus a reactionary Republican.  The latter wants to takes things back to some sort nebulistic past where white men were WASP males were WASP males and members of any other groups were marignalized.

I agree with Rob Walker (the guy on the right). There are more important things--especially this year--than whether New "Ghostbusters" is a slap in the face against the old one. I didn't like "Batman Begins," but I wasn't offended by it.
