Good Explanation for Trump

I came across this on Reddit and thought that it was a pretty good representation of why people like Donald Trump in America.

Many people have always dreamed of being the one who gets to fire people they didn’t like. Just like all the people who talk about how they wish they could punch that person who screwed up their coffee in the mouth or show the guy who cut them off who’s boss. All the ones who tell customer service folks that they’re gonna call corporate and get them fired. There’s no empathy there, only a desire for revenge, punishment, teaching them a lesson, and feeling powerful. They eat up shit like “You’re fired.” They’re living vicariously through him when he says it.
Now they’re loving that he’s telling politicians and nerds bullshit that makes their heads spin. That he’s bullying everyone. That he’s not giving a shit what China thinks about him. He’s fulfilling their fantasies. Nevermind that these things are just fantasies because in the real world, they can have devastating consequences. Someone gives you a bad review? Destroy their whole company! Someone says your idea was bad? Get them fired!
It’s anti intellectualism at its finest. It’s beating up on nerds for acting smarter than you, other kids for not respecting that you’re the biggest kid in the grade, and anyone who you perceive as having slighted you in any way. He’s just a bully, and he’s satisfying millions of people’s fantasies of being a bully. They think he’s going to be able to just bully the whole world around, just like on his show. Unfortunately, he’s about to be a bully in a China shop.

Disney World Thoughts Part 5: Animal Kingdom

Here it is! The last post of the series discussing my thoughts on the Walt Disney World Resort in Orland, Florida. This time, it is Animal Kingdom.

I have to say, fist off, that this is the best looking park besides Magic Kingdom. They did an excellent job of creating a theme in every part of this park. There is a TON of vegetation everywhere and it was really nice in the hot June heat and humidity.

Disney World Thoughts Part 4: Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios (formerly Disney-MGM Studios) was the one park at Disney World that we had very low expectations of before going there. I had gone online and watched complete park walkthroughs of all the Walt Disney World parks to get an idea of what we were getting into and to know our way around (at least a little bit), similar to how we can get around Disneyland.

Watching the walkthrough for Hollywood Studios, I felt like there was no good theme connecting anything together, no good, stand out food locations and it appeared hard to navigate. When we arrived there, we pretty much agreed. When you enter the park, you go down a Main Street like road, which you can either go to the end of where the Great Movie Ride is located, or you can split off in a couple of different directions.

Disney World Thoughts Part 3: Epcot

I know that is has been a little longer than you would expect for me to get back to posting part 2 of this about Epcot, but here it is.

One of the best parts of Epcot for us was that the shuttle that we took from our hotel (off site) dropped us off right at Epcot. This also allowed us to ride the Epcot Monorail line to the Magic Kingdom when we were going there. I love the monorail at Disney World.

Disney World Thoughts Part 2: Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom is the type of park that is modeled after the original Disneyland design and layout. People will often refer to Disneyland Paris, Tokyo Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, Disneyland itself and the Magic Kingdom in Disney World as “Magic Kingdom” parks. They have a Main Street, a hub, castle, and several themed lands.

The Magic Kingdom in Disney World is the best park of the 4 main theme parks at the resort. I am going to talk about this park and my thoughts on it land by land.

Disney World Thoughts Part 1: Overview

Well, James and I went to Disney World at the beginning of this month and anyone that knows me will know that I was very anti-Disney World for a long time. However, since we visited, I have a different outlook on the property there in contrast to the property in California.

This first post will be an overview of what I thought of Disney World overall and later posts will talk about the various parks and lands specifically.

Wedding and Valley Fair

Hey! Look at this! There is another blog post in the same month! Well, this is just an update on some of the things that I have been doing the last couple of weeks.

James and I went to a wedding in the Milwaukee area, where I was able to meet his parents which went surprisingly well. His mom and dad were both extremely nice and welcoming to me considering they are still working on coming to terms with James being gay.

On the way to the wedding, James took me to mini golf which was really fun! It was at a course that had two options: California and Wisconsin. Sorry California, but the Wisconsin side looked more fun, so we played that. I beat James, but not by much.

Thoughts

I was laying in bed watching TV this evening when all of these thoughts came into my head and I thought they would be good to write here, on my blog.

Way back at the end of 2011, I was on Grindr, which, in case you aren’t familiar, is a gay smartphone app that is used to meet guys. Here in La Crosse, it is hard to find good gay guys (and Grindr isn’t really a good alternative), but I was on there and found a picture of a guy that was in the newsroom at WKBT. I knew this because we had these awful orange squares on the wall that were apparently part of an old set and they were in the background of this guys picture.
