If you're looking for the funniest stuff, I suggest starting with the Steve, Don't Eat It Homage and then the travel category. You're on your own with the older posts that have yet to be categorized.

There seems to be only two possible explanations for Trump's campaign. Either:

  1. He is too stupid/naive/ignorant/incapable to do what he needs to do to win.
  2. He doesn't want/care to win.

The argument for 2 is that he seems to spend an inordinate amount of time in places he doesn't need to go to promote his hotels and golf courses and whatnot. On the other hand, reports are that his properties are hurting and his company is readying the switch away from using the Trump brand to Scion (which worked so well for Toyota).

The argument for 1 is just about everything he does outside of what a normal politician would do at this point (actually a much further back point).

Maybe it's both. (You can substitute Johnson's name for Trump's and make much of the same argument sans golf courses and hotels.)

Everything except Trump's support

In my view, Texas Republicans are loyalists. When Cruz refused to endorse Trump, they revolted at his lack of loyalty to the party. But above party comes loyalty to the country and I think Trump just abandoned any pretense of nationalism with his refusal to say he would accept the results of the election.

Stick a fork in him; he is done. Clinton will approach 400 Electoral votes.

Is he crazy like a fox or just crazy? Is he the blind squirrel who just happened across an acorn? People wonder about Trump. But what about the pundits?

This morning Ari Fleischer on Morning Joe was going on and on about why Trump is cooked. (Full disclosure: I think Trump is cooked.) He cited stats from 2012 like Romney won x% of this group and Trump has less. So where, oh where, is he getting the extra voters to possibly win?

The thing is, Ari, that current polls show Johnson and Stein with 8-12% of the vote. If it stays that way then Trump needn't match any of Romney's 2012 numbers. (See 1992.) So, is Ari stupid? Or stupid like a fox? (And what the hell does that even mean?)

Please, media, stop citing meaningless numbers and stats.

Also, Ben Carson, stop saying you are using "common sense" as it is demeaning to those of us with any sense.

Mercedes won't kill rich people

I have previously posted that self-driving cars should not prioritize the lives of others over the lives of the occupants, Mercedes says they agree with me.

On a side note, I'll be started the "no car" experiment around the end of the year. I currently only drive around 7000 miles a year and soon that will likely be down below 5000. I'll see if I can live using Lyft and Uber and the kindness of others. My dad gives it 3 weeks.
