Impervious To All Logic And Reason

On Tuesday, we posted about the decision to close a Harley-Davidson plant in Kansas City, MO, a company once blessed with the wise, benificent attention of "I alone can fix it" con artist Donald "Rump" Trump, and with the massive tax giveaway to corporations and the wealthy passed by Republicans last fall.  NBC Nightly News visited the plant and spoke to several employees about the plant's closing.  Moment where peak moron is reached: 1:30.

While we can empathize, we can't sympathize with self- defeating, obtuse people like this, who know they're getting screwed -- they just refuse to blame who's doing it, year after year, decade after decade.  As has been said, we can't convince them, we just need to outvote them.

The diehard Trump/Republicans will indeed die hard. If you vote against your self-preservation and support a political,party that cares nothing for you, then you get what you deserve. Blaming anyone else besides this Administration is a worthless lie, and the workers looking for new jobs are going to realize just how soundly screwed they are.

Trump: The Grift that keeps on Grifting.

donnah -- yes - it's when your tribalism ends up with you in the boiling cauldron.

They're beyond salvation. We need to keep our eye on the ball: encourage those who didn't vote that November is crucial.
