Quote Du Jour

Blowhard, Esq. writes:

The *establishment* composed of journos, BS-Vending talking heads with well-formulated verbs, bureaucrato-cronies, lobbyists-in training, New Yorker-reading semi-intellectuals, image-conscious empty suits, Washington rent-seekers and other “well thinking” members of the vocal elites are not getting the point about what is happening and the sterility of their arguments. People are not voting for Trump (or Sanders). People are just voting, finally, to destroy the establishment.

The other day on Facebook, a friend wrote:

Obviously I don’t like Trump and don’t think he should get anywhere near the Oval Office. But a lot of people do like him, and not just for bad reasons. If you are pro-Trump, what do you hope for from a Trump administration? I’m looking for the positive side, not the “we’re mad as hell and want to burn things down” part.

I wanted to respond, “Why isn’t ‘we want to burn things down’ enough? Why are you stacking the deck like that?”
