    The story of Trump, reminds me of the movie: "Being There" starring Peter Sellers.

    A simple-minded gardener named Chance has spent all his life in the Washington D.C. house of an old man. When the man dies, Chance is put out on the street with no knowledge of the world except what he has learned from television. After a run-in with a limousine, he ends up a guest of a woman (MacLaine) and her husband Ben (Douglas), an influential but sickly businessman. Now called Chauncey Gardner, Chance becomes friend and confidante to Ben, and an unlikely political insider.
    Maybe you can see it too...if not watch the movie if you can. People read too much into what politicians say...

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    Chance loves to watch ... Shirley MacLaine ...

    I didn't recall the significance of the name until I started listening...

    What is the difference between being Patriotic and being a Nationalist? Beau knows.

    If we're a nation of laws, they need to apply across the board.

    At two minutes Beau quotes the Founding Fathers. "He has erected a multitude of new offices and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people."

    Wow. Trump's acting like the King whom our Founding Fathers were resisting. Imagine that.

    Beau converses with the Liberal Redneck, Trae Crowder. (Beau's audio is not great but Trae's is just fine)

    It's not my intention to be focused on either males or the south. It is what it is.

    It's not about conceding on election night. That's not what's in the Constitution. It's about Peaceful Transfer of Power. That's what's provided for in the Constitution.

    Trae's a comedian. Their job includes being harsh.

    Have you ever listened to Joe Rogan standup? He can be way harsh.

    yeah, but his material is harsh in a different way. I noticed that the redneck said that Chris Rock was one of his inspirations. His 'material' is closer to Rock's in terms of the topics that he covers.

    I have both railed against both-siderism and been accused of bias when simply using common sense and objective analysis.

    Beau hits the nail on the head, imo:

    "Don't pay any attention to the goons. Just go in, vote, and leave."

    Good bit of common sense there. The goons both want and desperately need folks to be afraid or intimidated.

    This is a bit of 'cosplay' demonstrating the President's lack of ability or motive to protect the American people.
