That’s When You Vote
Bare oak tickles cloud
I’ve been watching some people who are closely following the never ending debates on TV to see “who wins”. They will pay more attention to talk radio and cable TV news over the next 9 months than they did their wife during her pregnancies.
Advertising revenue is the reason for corporate broadcast debates of the primary candidates, but actual presidential candidates won’t be known until July after the political party conventions.

After 30 years of brainwashing by talk radio and cable news, (Fox news, I am referring to you), the careful cultivation of zombie followers has reached critical mass.
The Right Wing faithful are primed and ready to proudly vote for the corporate takeover of the United States of America.

You know who they are. They fly flags on homemade flagpoles, flags on their trucks and lots of little flags glued on sticks to prove their allegiance and patriotism.
Mix that with bibles and crosses and you have an army of determined ignorance, self righteously participating in redefining the U. S. Constitution.

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."

Treehouse trees are budding
Tonight was the Iowa caucus to garner delegates from the state for the national convention. The media promotes the importance of this small, mostly white state caucus because it boosts their sales.
Bernie and Hillary got close to equal amounts of delegates.
One of the morally bankrupt right wing nuts got a few more delegates than the other republican lunatics. He thinks he has won the presidency.
On to New Hampshire, another primarily white, small state.

Just as import, tomorrow is groundhog day. They should figure out a way to have Punxsutawney Phil predict the presidential elections as well as the weather. That would generate more viewers and be just about as reliable as the Iowa caucus in determining the outcome of November 2016 elections.
