    I think it was W. Kamau Bell who, in refuting someone's claim that African-Americans are all liberal, said something like, "No, Black people can be conservative, they just can't be Republicans. If a Black person is a Republican, they get dis-invited from the barbeque."

    Yep but there's a tendency for people to backwards project the modern GoP onto Reagan's GoP.

    It was very different 40 years ago, after Vietnam thing became more conservative kinda like the post WW2 years.

    I find it absolutely hilarious that the same person talking about "backwards projection" and how it was "different 40 years ago" is the one who was citing California voting Republican in 1984 as if it was the most telling piece of evidence ever to roll off a banana truck.

    Sounds like the fight between Palos Verdes and Trump. They leased land to the previous golf course owners and continued the lease with him when he took it over. He ended up trying to steal land from their elementary school and lost in court after bleeding the district dry in legal costs. Palos Verdes is a upper-middle, lower-upper class town and I would not be surprised if they voted GOP in most elections but I don't know that for sure. The towns that surround the peninsula that Palos Verdes is on are pretty liberal.

    The town was featured in Life as a House with Hayden Christensen.

    It is also worth remembering the GOP has completely given up on contesting urban areas since the late 80s.

    Well, that's part of "going full racist."

    hey , wait , wait , ı am offended ! The people who run the world of course do not believe in the aliens . Had Aliens existed , they would come , lay prostate in front of those who run the world and beg their enlightened guidance and stuff to fix the alien homeworlds and star systems and sectors . Star Trek chart sez a sector is 20 light years across and you need a week to cross it Warp 8 . Yes , aliens would still ask for guidance , after kissing their feet and the like , because why not and it surely would happen that way . Am not that stupid and ı know it would happen that way . ı know , because America elected Trump as the President , say , as an example ...

    so , what's the truth ? It's some Jewish conspiracy , that's the truth . Standart answer , when people actually have no clue . Or idea . Or anything . America elected Trump , why don't you people believe that people can go that low and stuff , to think it's some conspiracy ? Like totally true that it turns out 11/2017 U1 was some unimportant piece of rock until its trajectory was noticed and it was assigned to some already failing satellite or something . People say it speeded up and down , it was barrel rolled , turned 180 degrees to take the front end to the back and when this failed to create interest , it's pointy end once again changed directions to the tune of some 80's American Rock piece . Did you see any of it ? ı didn't and that's the whole point , isn't it ? Because those who run the world didn't see it either and they are told these things , at least some of them , happened . It really gets dumber to explain why they took notice in that way , but like 11/2017 U1 made the world go some other direction . Like lizard god Trump giving up his war with Iran . Which was also helped by the attacks on the Saudi refineries , which were explained by the TV channels of New Turkey as an Israeli operation , because you know ... New Turkey TVs know everything to know in the world . Like never challenge their authority , especially if you are an American : Your country chose Trump !

    instead America turned to its backyard . For the duration . The people who run the world satisfy themselves with stuff .

    which has a real impact on me ... Unimportant , some Brown person in some unimportant place in a country what the rest of the world surely thinks to be unimportant . By some accident or Fate or whatever you would to describe it with , but ı happen to know people . Who used to be like something in the Cold War , because of like inheriting some tradition and stuff from the 1920s and being quite damn good observers of what was happening on the other side . So , ı get to tell , like F-35 is undesirable and still wishing good to Americans , like Ankara wouldn't die with writing off 100 millions of US Dollars ... Ten or so years ago . Flares up time to time . And can you believe that ı implied that there were those who were paid cash by Lockmart in some forum and the post still remains ! Another forum , most noted by the language posters use on each other and planes the other guy's company made ? It has self destructed , for the duration , because obviously people wouldn't be able to shut up . Amazingly , you know , people have discovered they would be noticed , when they were going BWAHAHAAAA .

    and the reason for the glory years ? When people would follow you to places and make trouble for you ? New Turkey badly wants to insult the Republic of 1923 and they have decided to have a fighter plane . The company troll is a mighty brilliant one , too . Because every one up there is a troll , they can't stand him and make a couple of his brilliances go away . Feed the crow and it will feed on your eyes , as the saying goes and there's this massive cyberattack on the UK , because how can London ever DARE ! Was my implication , explanation of what was going on ... See , ı was not particularly aware London was going to rob us with hospitals and stuff and they had like totally opened up their medical computer stuff ... Oh , of course that's when big corporations decide to teach you your place , despite your extremely concise explanation that it will cost them , one way or the other , enough is enough . Trolls see everybody as trolls , that's a particular problem of theirs ...

    not everybody out there is a person who runs the world , means they need some brains to work at places where they work . So , even if 11/2017 U1 is a fake , it still means there has been tampering with the sensors and stuff and no clue , so "Let's see where this leads to" and so and soforth . No , they have NOT decided Aliens exist . Nor anybody will ever bother to discover which song . ı was "told" it was oscillating to Cyndi Lauper's Shebop or whatever and ı know enough music history and no , it's not , and it would be really gross . Once again Somebody and Someone and that guy trolling me and ı have told Lady Vader and them 3 will see !

    does that give me anything ? No . It seems some woman have offended the city or something and people might be like accusing me . My USBs are like financially accessible (meaning they are made-in-China cheap) and ı have accepted they will fail and in one week , one got Write-Protect , one showed every sign of dying and one deletes files in the sense they exist and they take space but are unreadable . From this ı imagine it's American trouble again , only this time she has posted on some fecebook page of the locals , maybe . She would have full CIA support by this time , so why would she ever need some Brown people tell her anything ? Disbelief in some people that she has actually let them know it's official and no , she is not here to beg for anything , too . Adding two and two , quite a few or something have decided the Police should arrest me immediately , in the true New Turkey style of "justice" , fake up something and keep in for a couple of years and and not even a "Excuse me" ... So , like for the benefit of people , because these two kids have rung the bell and run away in the middle of the night , because ı will be taken soon and not be able to "find" them . Maybe 16 , ı expect one of them to be the one who was maybe 8 when he first did so . You know , after the first wave of feeling that she should be sent away , because somehow the town thinks it has a say in how things should be run . Despite Ankara letting it be known that "Leave him alone" . It would have taken one slap about 14 or 15 years ago and everything would be fine and none of the locals would be in this , but can assure you a lot of things are taken as weakness .

    so , what's happening ? In all probability she is here for small print , which America actually insists doesn't exist and people are too old to bother . Those Americans who would respect people here were just 5 guys in the basement of Pentagon ; ı don't know how they survived 9/11 . They were the ones who advised they should sent Nikki Haley , because as the US thing in the UN , she could be spared the blocking mechanisms of what number she was in the lists of protocol and VIPs and stuff of the US and what she would correspond to here , because she was America's face to the whole world . Pompeo might not even heard the name of the town where ı live , let alone me . See , nothing to be hurt about because she talks . She is not against you , as much as she wasn't for you , you know all those years ... And what does the Police do ? Naturally searching for some woman who slapped some headscarved woman in an Istanbul street . As they should , because as an obviously no A-K-P fan , ı really want to know who goes and attacks some 28 year old high school teacher in the street , listening to music on her phone with the earplugs and stuff . She is even named "Martyrs" like the plural form of those who have fallen for the country . Not blaming her , but you know , she would have to be handpicked to be attacked so ; and she has a splendid talk as well . On the days Imamoğlu talked at some Chatham House in the UK , and far more importantly was introduced to the bankers of the City ... You know , godless atheist Kemalists attacking headscarved girls on the streets and also our martyrs because the world tried the extinguish the light of Islam in Dardanelles . Despite A-K-P being established in 2001 . Contrary to what the locals might think , this country was simply given to UK as a colony , an India . As Trump wanted some Anglosaxon domination of the world economy , an underperforming EU would be a bonus and any Briton who reads is right to say the Brexit referandum was in 2016 and well , New Turkey has failed to conquer the Middle East , the British bonanza fails to happen and oh my , we will see how Boris Johnson will manage to Brexit by February 2020 . So ? Well , the lark should end so that America can fake it "has been" accepted and to that end State Department insists they are taking this seriously . So that Boris Johnson might have his India , despite Theresa May couldn't have her India and ı didn't say anything or something , didn't ı ? . Like who cares for rocks in the sky ? Despite this forum saw me trolled or something on whether ı knew the Stuntwoman after the strike on Tankograd went so awfully bad for America , despite the like thousand casualties and stuff in that Russian town , Chelyabinsk ı think ... Amazingly tough , ı guess , even some shop owner gives up recording whatever ı do from a distance by the looks of it , when Ankara says so , but was that subcontracted to others already ?

    ah yes , the first shot of the space war has been fired . People are like amazed at the carte blanche or whatever given to the Russians , ı think this means a blank check . Consider the outrages the Russians have been doing , with a feeling that the Americans still lack ethics and they can't still shoot straight , too . And Ukranians of some sort had great fun at painting Wehrmacht crosses on an APC during the Maidan riots , the Ukranian colour revolution . Yet , within the year an Ukranian Air Defence unit in Crimea marched to their post with the Soviet Union colours/banners , and people are like -well- dumb and unquestioning ... People might also remember the very first bunch of guys who appeared on the spot were called the "Green Men" ...

    translation : ı love Peace Nobels . But those who get Peace Nobels might not exactly like me ...

    and because Americans actually do not like Israelis at all , the said Israelis have lost an advanced missile intact over Syria

    and this Sky Dome interceptor over Gaza , but Hamas has not yet declared that they shot it down , to have the seekers intact .

    Yeah, so, again, friendly reminder that Reagan got caught on tape calling Africans monkeys and people who think he is significantly different from Trump are really just saying they like the racism hidden behind a polite veneer

    Trump is like the ultimate expression of Reagan Republicanism. Only they kicked out the Cheney types and are leaving seats empty.

    an eclectic mix if you will ... The Hour of Opposition runs three Atatürk pieces like at once . One , 11 people die in his funeral , actually 13 with two more in the hospital . 8 of them non-Muslim , one a Belgian tourist . Two , the first of his adopted daughters fall off a train in France and he like meekly accepts it was an accident . Three , a school teacher who made a space base of his classroom of first graders , because faux Kemalists declared Atatürk had declared in Eskişehir 1936 or something that people might need not to wait until the year 2000 to walk on other planets , because they had it corrected to add the Moon , because Neil Armstrong .

    two kinda fails , the first daughter was sent to UK to learn the language and the ways to teach it , because America was coming , despite Kemal was naturally educated in French and stuff . She was of course harassed by the British ladies , because the British ladies harass anyone as a custom . The Frenchies would explain that with their horror that they would have to marry British gentlemen . She was returning home , without Kemal's permission , who was not particularly well treated at the few times he was abroad . ı have a piece somewhere on how he was treated as a monkey during some 1910 exercises in France , where he got the chance to fly as an observer and like would put to good use within 3 years and stuff , at least according to Osprey .

    one will be easy . The State in 1938 want no fuss , because they all imagine Kemal was joking he would be the last dictator of Turkey , like ever . Cult of Personality thing , they do not want people crying and stuff , nor like a couple of thousands in the Islamic rites of the funeral , which they rush , just naturally , because the Revolution will become now entirely godless . So , when there are masses , one guy orders the doors closed , the crowd gets real big , let the door open and there will be the rush and suffocations . Like some lightedness about how all the authorities were given medals for the good running of the ceremonial stuff , too .

    three is simple . Some guy makes a graph of how the thrust of rocket engines might develop over the years , add that to Chilkovski or however you spell the Russian's name and reach a level to beat gravity , which was like widely known at the time or something . Kemal knew he didn't know everything , he would listen to those he did when he didn't . Being the best dictator of the 20th Century is no accident , is it ? As for being an enlightened despot , the number of people who showed up after his death is proof that his despotism like needed another 40 ovens of bread , as the Turkish phrase goes ... Which brings us to Ittihad and it's never ending problem , then . That Kemal said it was an accident and the British rushed to prevent a scandal that might ensue with the WW II in sight does not explain the suicide of the former British MI6 agent who handled those White Helmets of Syria , with the claims of a guy in black suit walking in the street on the day . People will of course accept the reference to guys in black who visited the first daughter's extented family to bring mementos and advising them to avoid talking is just an accident , not related to anything . Yeah , people are still obligated to "Atatürkçü görünmek" , to act as if they are Kemalists , right ? One speedily led to events , which were actually made into some little documentary in like 1985 when people were becoming unhappy with Santa Turgut , called the Wild Horses of November on something . Because it was attuned to the youth of the day , the soundtrack is loud , ı have been assured . This is not taught on NATO courses , especially those aim to establish gas chambers in this country .

    and no , this is not a reference or something to the commissar of the show , who like didn't like possibility of becoming an apparent apparatchik in the eyes of the audience and "confessed" he was teaching at military academies and NATO for the last 18 years . When the show started this unnamed guy would appear and say stuff that would send him to jail in a day , if the Congregation like ever desired . "Kimin gazını almakla meşgul olduğu bi bilinse millet Maşallah diyecek" is the kind of odd Turkish sentence that certainly proves the real quality of the guy , if the nation was to hear what kind of people he was lulling into sleep , that the enlightened classes were not unaware of the Counter-Revolution and things would happen . Once again , Russians are on the rampage , this time trying to sell Flankers or -ı think- Felons (apparently those Su-57 things) . Putin might not heed it , but there was a time when the club in Moscow to discuss the Turks required you to be an Hero of the Soviet Union , as a minimum . People tend to pay attention , if they survived being roasted in their struck tanks only by microseconds .
