I think the last thing Donald Trump ever expected was to be the Republican nominee. The president? No way.
He’s a promoter, a salesman, a carnival barker, a brand manger.
Why did Pat Paulsen run for president in 1968? The same reason Donald runs. It’s good for their businesses. Like Donald Trump, entertainers are brands.
So what happens when a publicity stunt gets taken seriously and the jokester wins the election?
BTW Isn’t there an old movie with this plot? Sound familiar? Cary Grant or Gary Cooper I think. Jean Harlow is an ambitious and street wise reporter who uses her charm and 1940’s sex appeal to puts him up to it. Lionel Barrymore is her old school editor who, like her, only cares about selling newspapers. Sound familiar?
How about the FBI and fools like Search and Avoid Dan Conley saying the government should order Apple to write code (speech) that opens all the i-phones so cops can get into them whenever they want?
First off, the NSA can crack it at anytime. So can’t other agencies but the FBI never asked. Why? They don’t care about opening that phone. They just used it as a rouse to get unneeded and illegal powers based on the crap-our-pants word “terrorism”.
It was great seeing John Oliver use a video clip of D.A. Dan Conley chiming in on this and then making fun of him. What a twerp.
Anything about Red Sox in the Globe is suspect. Big time suspect.
Don’t they make it so obvious? My goodness.
There is no further evidence needed to prove what sackless ball sucks our local media and media watch dogs are than the deafening silence after the Globe’s piece chastising Boston College for not following the advice of their paid consultant, Fenway Sports Management, and declining to play at Fenway Park.
Only a Syrian refugee would not know that John Henry owns the Globe, Red Sox/Fenway Park, and Fenway Sports Management.
What made it completely unethical is although Sam “Two Hat” Kennedy is president of the sports management business, he is quoted in the story as the president of the Sox (his other role) explaining the generous invitation the Sox sent BC.
Where’s Dan Kennedy on this? Where Commonwealth Magazine? Where’s The Herald? Where’s Boston public radio? Where’s David Bernstein? Where’s sports radio? Boston Business Journal? Boston Magazine? NECN?
Is there anybody out there?
This my friends is exactly why our city is the suckiest suck-fest of suck-ups ever to suck.
WE do not need any bike laws. Things were fine without them. I believe bikes should be able to go where it make sense for them without hurting anyone. Like the old day. The good old days.
Nothing wrong with cutting through parking lots, constantly hopping on and off the sidewalk, going in the opposite direction of traffic when necessary, ignoring traffic signals in favor of best judgment, and never ever never never plant your ass in the middle of a lane at an intersection waiting for the light change.
That is the worst thing a human can possibly do. Everyone knows it’s just for show. People get edgy with you there. Especially old and Asian drivers. Plus you’re a dick.
A biker should be allowed to use the best of all worlds. When I see a bike waiting at a red light I say to myself, “What a chump. Get your ass across the street so I don’t have to deal with you when the light changes. You’re not a car, you’re a nut.”
The one biker who really makes me want to clip him is that one dick-head in the pack who likes to show what a hardo he is and stays way outside group like he’s a sheep dog. That person is the worst person in the world. We can all agree on this, right?
