Trump’s Acceptance speech vs Reagan’s

Last week I took some time to listen to Donald’s Trump 2016 acceptance speech. In contrast, I listed also listen to Ronald’s Reagan 1980 acceptance speech. The differences cannot be any more stark.

I see trump as a person who has one foot planted firmly in the soil of Authoritarianism and Populism and the other toe dipping in the cesspool of Fascism.

A plague o’ both your political houses

( pleas allow me to rant a little)

Reading what going on meme infused Trump supporters and Hillary supporter I have one thing to say to both.

A plague o’ both your houses

The Populist Trump supports had no problem stabling the back of Republicans who supported McCain and Romney but getting into a hissy fit because some of us not bow down at the alter of Rush Limbaugh and Trump.
There can never be any unity between liberty loving individuals and Conservatism as far as I am concern. I not interested in unity, but ether their repentance or the end of conservatism.

To The Left Stop Be So Ignorant About Gun Control

France  has a very tough  gun control laws but  it could not stop Paris November  15 terrorist attack or Charlie Hebdo attack.   Second if you take away all the assault weapons, you still leave areas that are vulnerable. It will not  stop terrorist  for obtain weapons and there not enough law officials who can respond before the attacker can cause  grave damage.   The was the case for Paris November  15 terrorist attack, Charlie Hebdo attack, 2015 San Bernardino attack, and  Orlando  massacre.  Let us not forget the  2013 Clackamas Town Center shooting: was stopped before  more were hurt or killed by an armed citizen who happened to be in the mall at the time.  He did not have to shoot, but pulling the gun threw the shooter off his game.

Portland Transit Race puts Taxi and Pubic Transit on the Bottom

Willamette Week had their The great Portland transit race. The race was a group of people had to go from e Willamette Week office in Slabtown to Roadside Attraction, the pleasant patio bar on Southeast 12th Avenue. The participants used Bike cycle t Car2Go, Lyft, a taxi and the bus. The race counted time of travel and cost.  Unfortunately private auto was not in the equation.

The winner was Car2Go at 18 Minutes and cost $6.47. the Bike was free at 22 minutes. Lyft 19 minutes costing $11.14.

As for the bottom of the barrel

Taxi 23 minutes costing $17.00 with tip

and Trimet 51 minutes at $2.50

I know firsthand the problem in using public Transit. My wok commute was 1.5 to 2.5 hours for a 30 to 47 drive. As for taxi no wonder why the cab companies are opposed to Uber and Lyft, they want to keep the tradition of high prices and poor service.
