Terrible's Lakeside Casino Events and Concerts in Osceola ...

[Other] These are the top 73 parks in the United States, ranked based on the quality of their coaster collections, as voted by, well... you! This is as close to objective as a ranking will ever get for this. Don't worry, I have some nerdy data to help explain myself.

This post needs a little clarification. Anyway, many of you are aware of the brilliant Vote Coasters project over at Coaster Bot. If not, take a look: https://coasterbot.com/votecoasters-fullresults2020
2699 enthusiasts from across the wrold people ranked every roller coaster they've ever ridden, at an average of 43 coaster credits per voter (116256 total credits). Many of you personally participated in this survey. Their algorithm is extremely clever (https://coasterbot.com/votecoasters-how) - "The community is only permitted to rank roller coasters they’ve actually ridden. This way each roller coasters position in the final results will be as truthful and accurate as possible. By making it easy for lots of people to contribute their lists, Vote Coasters is able to accumulate a large sample which represents everyone! Once the community has voted, the numbers are crunched. Our method involves directly comparing the rank of two individual roller coasters across all of the submitted lists. As Vote Coasters makes direct comparisons between individual roller coasters, the poll is not a popularity contest. Even obscure roller coasters that few people have had the chance to ride yet can do well!"
I have taken this data and created a point system for coasters that's directly linked to their ranking on Vote Coasters 2020. The #1 ranking, Steel Vengeance, is worth 500 points. [Zadra's second and would be worth 499 points, but it's not in the US] #3, Lightning Rod, gets 498 points. El Toro gets 497 points and so on, all the way down to La Vibora in 499th place, earning only 2 points for its park. Any coaster under the top 500 (such as Corkscrew at Cedar Point) is worth zero points. This weeds out kiddie coasters and terrible coasters from factoring into a park's collection quality. Basically, crappy coasters add zero points to a park's total points, while excellent coasters are worth way more points than mid-tier ones. For coasters with two tracks, such as Gemini or Lightning Racer, I only counted points for the best of the two tracks. My spreadsheet showing the point values for all 256 American coasters in the top 500 is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10aaS1f8CptsXEvUSqE2-VUtal-Od9gim-x8rT7xkT8M/edit?usp=sharing
I have added all of the points for the coasters in all of the 73 American amusement parks that house at least one global top 500 roller coaster. I ranked the earned point totals for all 73 parks. (That's how I got to a "Top 73!") For those like me who care exclusively about coasters and collecting quality credits and nothing else, I think this is an EXCELLENT way to prioritize future amusement park trips based on the quality of each park's overall coaster collection. Without further ado, here's what you want to see:

My (23M) cousin is dating a (52F) woman and I'm positive she’s not good for him but don’t know what to do...

So this is a really juicy tale per se and it involves my cousin who is the same age as me and has been my best friend since a youngin and his 52 year old twice divorced with 4 kids girlfriend. I will refer to my cousin as Jordan and his woman as Sara. I'm from Tucson & Jordan lives in Palm Springs, California and we talk about once a week. About 6 months ago he told me had met a girl but didn't really call her his girlfriend and therefore I didn't really probe because it's common for him to meet girls off of tinder and then discard of them shortly thereafter. He told me she was older and that really didn't surprise me either because when he was living in Iowa with his father prior to moving back to PS he had dated a woman in her 30's . On top of that, when he was 16 him and his friends went to Huntington beach and at the hotel they were staying at he lost his virginity to a 30 year old woman. Ever, since then it's been "I like my older women cousin" to which I would reply yeah you like that roast beef (IK I'm gross) so its always been a running joke between him and I. Anyways, he never really mentioned this girl anymore after the first mention and so I didn't think anything of it figuring he just moved on like the rest of em. Fast forward a few months, his dad who lives in Tucson came over to my families house for a steak dinner and he said he'd been having terrible headaches but we really didn't think anything of it because he's a former collegiate wrestler who'd go for walks everyday and was in pretty good shape for a guy in his mid 60's. Not even 2 days later Jordan's father calls him and says the headaches are persisting, he can't keep food down, and the pain is so bad that he can't even sleep. Jordan like the good son he is drives straight down to Tucson to take his dad to the hospital (he knew his father was stubborn and wouldn't call us or even EMS to take him). While Jordan was down here he gave me a call to update me on the condition of his father (diagnosed a brain bleed) and mentioned he had came to town with his girlfriend and wanted me to meet her but they had already turned back around and left town because he had to get back to work. So I told him next time. My dad and I picked up his father from the hospital the next day and he was a bit weak and had lost ten pounds but it sounded like he was recovering. In the mean time, Jordan had called me and we were discussing the wellbeing of his father and it was on that phone call that he revealed to me his girlfriend was quote "50". I told him I didn't care as long as he was happy and told him I was happy for him but also reminded him that his twenties are precious and girls who are 50 can't have children lol. He knew I had his best interest at heart and everything was going to be fine as I really didn't care that much. Next couple of days go by and Jordan calls me scared because his dad won't pick up his phone and when I tried his number I got an answer but no one speaking on the other end, being a former EMT that scared the shit out of me and so I rushed over there. When I got to my Uncles house I banged on the window and door and got no reply and so I called the FD and they got in through the window and sure enough he was in the state he was before he went to the hospital but worse (could only speak in single words and couldn't get out of bed). The FD suspected a stroke and took him back to the hospital. So after getting him transported, I gave Jordan a call and he shot right back down to Tucson with his girlfriend Sara and had re insisted that I meet her so I just said sure give me a call after you see your dad and I'll come meet her. A whole day or two goes by and I hear nothing and figure out he had gone back to PS. So I'm thinking he was apprehensive about me meeting her which I thought was odd bc I pretty much said I didn't care. Fast Forward a couple weeks and his dad is out of the hospital and recovering at our house in our guest bedroom. He's getting physical and speech therapy in our home for a perceived stroke resulting in a brain hemorrhage (I think). 2-3 weeks go by and the vomiting, headaches and weakness return so we are advised by the home care nurse to take him to the hospital again so we take him to a different hospital nearest our house. Not even 2 days go by and it was determined through a CAT scan that he had lung cancer that had already metastasized to his brain. Of course we're all devastated and Jordan comes back into town again with Sara to see his dad. My cousin never brought her to the hospital (although Im wondering if he would've if covid didn't limit visitors) but my dad who was spending every day all day with my Uncle said Jordan would show up late to their agreed upon time to visit his dad (who is essentially non verbal at his point) and meet with DR.'s to discuss his condition and treatment and then leave after a few hours to return to the hotel with his woman. (sometimes saying he was going to return but never doing so) Pretty much it was determined based on his dads condition that radiation and chemo weren't an option and that it'd be best to put him in hospice. After all this was determined he was put into hospice care at our house and Jordan had to return to PS to get back to work planning to come visit every weekend. A few days go by and we could tell his condition was worsening quickly so he came down Saturday morning and arrived at our house Saturday evening and not even 2 hours after Jordan arrived his dad passed away in his arms. Even though he was non verbal and couldn't even open his eyes I truly believe his dad waited for him. So we arranged the funeral services and Jordan made it known that he'd be accompanied by Sara and we'd all be meeting her for the first time. Of course with us being so close he wanted me to meet her first. The day before the funeral I go over to their hotel to meet her and so i get there at first and it's a bit awkward as expected but we have a couple beers and get to talking and that's when I find out that she's actually 52, has 4 kids and is twice divorced mentioning that her first husband "picked up the bottle" after she left him and ended up dying from something liver related. I then proceed to ask how they met and they look at each other and go "you want to tell him? No you tell him" she says so my cousin goes on to tell me they met at a Casino and in my head i'm like hmmm I've only been to a casino once but I gathered that if you're looking for wifey material you best look elsewhere. So im a little skeptical but I brush it off because I'm there to support my cousin who just lost his father. We have, a couple more beers and hit the hot tub at their hotel and continue to reminisce mostly telling stories about his father and then we go back inside to watch Jordan's raiders play. This is where the tides shift, we're watching the game and one of the players has a fairly large diamond chain dangling from his neck and Sara goes "Put that N***er chain away" and I look to the left bug eyed and say "Woah, that's not cool. I don't play that shit" she's dead silent and so is my cousin and it's awkward between her and I the rest of the time but the part that irked me the most was my cousin was sort of rude and condescending towards ME for the rest of the night. So at that point im thinking to myself ok I definitely do not like this woman at all...whatsoever. But his dads funeral is tomorrow and it's not about me so we just gotta trudge along. To make matters even worse, I give Jordan a copy of the eulogy my brother wrote. My brother is his dad's Godson and Jordan didn't want to do the eulogy because he was still so hurt and shocked and public speaking isn't his strong suit. My brother asks if there was anything he'd like to add, perhaps a story or something he wanted to mention about his father. He takes a pen and writes "I'd like to thank my Uncle ***** (my dad) for taking all the appropriate measures to get my dad the care he needed while he was sick and especially Sara for her endless love and support during these hard times" or something along those lines. Keep in mind his father never met this girl and neither had anyone in our family except for the shit impression she left on me. Now before I even expressed my opinion of her to my parents they said yeah we're not putting that shit in there and so that comment was left out completely. Are my family and I blowing things out of proportion or is this completely un fucking acceptable? You have to understand, from the time Jordan's father got sick until he passed it was literally 5 weeks. We have never experienced sudden death in our family like this and we spent 90% of those 5 weeks at his side and when he died so suddenly it literally crushed us. It was just a huge slap in the face to us and most importantly his father that all he had to say was that he was thankful for this woman with shit character who came into his life 7 months ago. So my question to you guys and please please please I need some insight is with Christmas around the corner and him most likely wanting to bring this woman into our household for xmas festivities what should we do? Am I overreacting? I just feel bad because my cousin is living with this piece of work in Palm Springs and she's literally all he has there and if I were to tell him don't bring her for xmas dude I just feel like that would be another blow on top of just recently losing his father. At the same time, my family and I know she's not good for him therefore don't want her around, my cousin is not mature for his age and I just don't see anything remotely positive amounting from this girl. Please help, I'm so lost as to what to do in this situation.
PS his mom and my mom have already expressed their disdain towards her to Jordan and while I haven't directly but I'm sure he knows what I'm thinking. He doesn't seem to care and has a skewed perception of her.

Raised by two sociopaths

Hi guys, I don't really know where else to post this but I'm really lost. I've been reading this subreddit for some time but have never really made a post, but I feel I need to get this off my chest. It's going to be a really long post, so bear with me, but I'll put cliffs at the bottom for anyone who doesn't want to read.
Ever since I was a small child my Mother has both neglected me and abused my emotions. Though when I was little I can't remember any specific cases, but the abuse began regularly after she deemed me, "Not cute."
When I was 8 one of her boyfriends she met online was rich, claiming to make $5,000 a day, he lived all the way in Colorado while we lived in Iowa. He came to visit us one week, and nobody liked him, not even my Mother, my two half Sisters (only siblings) thought he was rude and abrasive, and this was just when we were in the stranger phase.
My Mother decided to drop everything, the life we'd been building in that town for 7 years and move to small town Colorado, all because he had money in his bank account.
When we arrived he kept up this facade that he was a very, very, rich man, though his small house said otherwise. His business was quickly going in the red and went bankrupt only half a year after we came.
He was angry, and began to take out his anger on me. I was a very small boy at the time, almost malnourished looking (mother rarely cooked dinner), and couldn't handle eating very much. Step-Dad disagreed with this. He'd put heaping piles of food on my plate and tell me to finish it, and when I could not, he'd force me to sit there all night until I had.
He would scream at me to finish it, telling me I've wasted all his hard earned money, and my Mother would just sit there, watching, doing absolutely nothing. The worst part about it, is that even though I know he enjoyed doing it, I think my mother enjoyed it too. Even to this day I still torture myself with things like this, trying to rationalize his point of view, reasoning that I was just a stuck up kid who had a penchant for disobeying my guardians.
He gave me the task of feeding his angry Rottweiler, which he caged up in the backyard day and night, never giving it exercise or caring for it at all. The Rottweiler was angry, and would attempt to maul me every time I went out to feed it. Even going so far as to break the wooden fence it was caged in.
One day it escaped and caught me before I got up the steps to the house, it pinned me on the ground in the dirt, right next to the garage, which Step-Dad was in, admiring his car.
I was screaming, yelling for someone to help me, nobody did. Even the window to the backyard through the garage did nothing. I fought to escape but couldn't, it was lunching directly at my throat, and only through the grace of God did I somehow manage to hold it off and escape. My clothes were torn, I was bruised and bleeding, and I was crying.
I walked into the garage, and Step-Dad could only tell me this, "Stop fucking crying."
There is a multitude of other stories I could tell from then, but to cut it short I'll skip them.
About a year later, after that incident I was severely depressed, and rapidly gaining weight. Nearly every night I would call my Sister on the phone and cry. She told me that I needed to get out of there, to go to my Dad's. I believed her, my Dad had always seemed overwhelmingly loving when I visited as a boy. So my Sister called me Dad and my parents went to court over custody. He got full rights.
When I got there it started off good, still being in the nicety stage, but quickly I learned that he is no better than my Mother, he simply only puts on a facade of caring.
He is a drunk. Every weekend he would be shitfaced, coming home drunk, bumbling around, and yet this entire time, he didn't think it was bad, he didn't think it was wrong, he thought it was just a normal thing.
He was not poor like my Mother, but he acted like it. He was never available to do anything, he was always busy. Why should he go fishing with me? Teach me any life lessons? Watching TV was far more important.
So he bought me a computer, told me to go and play that. That was about the extent of interaction I had with him. He thought showing his love meant buying me something, that a material item held more value than genuine love, which neither he nor my Mother ever showed.
Fast forward a couple years later after a few events I won't mention because TLDR;
Step-Dad gets really sick, loses his insurance, gets a back infection that only he only has a 5% chance of surviving with the best surgeons in Denver. He manages to survive, we are now hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, goes bankrupt, gets a job and rents a house out in the mountains for $1,400 a month.
My Mother gives me sob stories on the phone, telling me Step-Dad's changed, I buy her BS because I didn't want to believe otherwise. My Dad and I got into a fight over school went my grades started to drop from depression. He told me to go move back out with my Mom, (so he could drink more often and party). So I did.
This was the worst part of my life, because before then I've always been able to make friends and act normal socially, even though I'd never had a birthday party or knew what happiness felt like.
I was absolutely isolated on that secluded mountain, the only neighbor we had was the landlord, a Wiccan. There was no internet, no forms of entertainment aside from a TV, and nothing to do but do chores Step-Dad demanded constantly, making me feel like a spoiled piece of trash if I refused them. Common chores included feeding the chickens, giving them water, feeding the hogs, giving them water, wiping off his pickup truck, etc. I had no problem with chores, chores were a part of daily life, but the way he would demand them, as if he were entitled to them because apparently he had something to do with any aspect of my upbringing.
My Mother began to reveal her true nature, and became just as bad as him, manipulative and cruel. I had three piggy banks, three 5 gallon glass containers that held pennies and dimes that I got from various things. She came up to me one day and said she was going to leave him, but she needed extra money to. I didn't trust her but she left me no choice, one day when I was out doing chores, I came back inside and all of the containers were gone.
Within a month my Mother sponsored a visit to Grandma and Grandpa in North Dakota, but stopped in Nebraska as we were heading there, she spent every last one of my savings on a casino.
It got cold, being isolated thousands of feet above sea level on a mountain. And most of all it was lonely. I had no friends, no way of making friends, no way of even communicating with the outside world besides the landline.
I became incredibly depressed, and have still been in some form of depression to this day. When you are surrounded by two toxic individuals, with no means of escape besides a foster home (my Sisters wouldn't take me in), you begin to think that you are the problem, and being called a waste of space by my Step-Dad on a daily basis didn't help, because when thats the only thing you hear, with no outside perspective, you begin to truly believe it.
School rolled around and I was still there, my Dad had custody, legally, but didn't care enough to enforce it, he didn't even care enough to get me out of there. He told me to wait the rest of the school year first. And where I was, a drive to school was 3 hours there and three hours back, making it so I'd be waking up at 3:30 AM.
My clothes were utterly neglected, being two years two old, none of them fit, the pants were either falling down or too tight, holes in them, primarily at the crotch area. My shirts were more of the same, too baggy or too tight, holes every which place. My Mother was "too poor" to afford clothing, yet she could afford to stuff her face and spend thousands at Casinos.
I was quickly turned into a social outcast. I was that weird kid. Other children would be interested in sports and activities outside school (something Mom and Step-Dad wouldn't allow, since the bus was only before and after school), while I couldn't relate to a single one of them. I was living in Hell.
I started causing trouble in school, not intentionally, but I was completely apathetic about my grades, my looks, everything. I didn't feel there was a point in trying. Some of my teachers got pissed while others felt bad for me. My math teacher was regularly irate about my complete lack of caring about his class, he'd yell at me, tell me I'd be working at McDonalds, and made jokes about wishing he could paddle students again.
And I didn't care. His yelling didn't phase me because I'd already lived through that with my Step-Dad. A man who would literally throw trash and dog shit in my room just to signify was I "am".
Now I was getting in trouble with the school system. I didn't reveal any of my familial life because of threats made by both my Mother, my Step-Dad, and my Dad, telling me the horrors of foster homes. They didn't know what to do with me, but soon enough I was in the juvenile system.
Fast forward a few years, living with my Dad again, never truly having a home.
At this time I'd began to focus on fitness and my hobbies, neglecting both school and my social life, which I no longer had, and had learned to live without.
I wrote a book when I was 13 (which I won't name here), it was self-published, simply because I did not have the confidence to find a literary agent and get a publisher. Sales were poor, since there was no marketing whatsoever, nor could there have been.
My Dad didn't give a shit about it, only used it to brag to his friends about how smart I was, then would tell me I'm a failure whenever we got into a fight, telling me how bad it was (he never read it).
I decided to drop out of High School at 16, to focus on my interests. My Dad tried to stop me, telling me it was wrong, but ultimately stopped giving a fuck after I refused. The only thing he cared about was maintaining his social status. He didn't give a single shit about my future, he only wanted to not look bad in front of his friends.
I began to discover just how truly terrible my Mother and Father were. A very personal story my Mother had told me once, how my Half-Sisters were both raped by their father, and continued to repeat for sympathy. I found out to be an utter lie. She told me that story to cover up her behavior, even though my Sisters both said such a thing didn't happen.
I found out that my Mothers reasoning for leaving my Dad, claiming he cheated on her, was not true, apparently the reason was his alcohol use, which I can understand, but I still feel there is more to it than that.
And the worst thing of all, that I've learned, is that we had a total of 10 pets since I was 8. Each and every one of them died mysteriously, a year or two, or three, if they are lucky, after we had them. I tried to chalk this up to neglect and apathy, but quickly learned that there was something deeper behind this. I'm going to list the pets we've had, I will not say their names, but I will say what happened to them.
Cat, dissapeared. Dog, to pound. Rottweiler, (one that nearly killed me) dissapeared. Dog, disappeared. Dog, killed by coyotes. Dog, given away. Dog, given away. Dog, disappeared. Dog, died from obesity, frozen in freezer by Step-Dad. Cat, dead on road after escaping during heat.
I couldn't help but get suspicious. I thought myself crazy for thinking what I believe now, but now I fully realize the madness. I called up the pound that my 2nd dog was placed in. There are no records of him, not anywhere. I tracked down the people my Mother allegedly gave our 6th dog to, they don't recall ever owning a dog with that name. Neither the people with the one after that.
I began to research sociopaths and animal abuse, and have learned that certain individuals could perhaps hurt these animals for pleasure, although most likely neglect them.
My Mother has lied to me about everything, and now I have to face the fact that she could be secretly torturing these animals, just as she tortured me in my childhood.
I don't know what to do. I don't know what to feel, and now I don't know where to go in life. Depression has rendered me incapable of making any decisions, and it is a struggle to even get out of bed in the morning. I can hardly function as an adult. Getting along with others is challenging, and appearing normal even moreso. I feel utter contempt for everything, and Nihilism has become my mainstay philosophy, rendering me unmotivated to do anything.
I can hardly feel anything anymore, I don't want to be a sociopath like my mother, but I cannot help it. I can't feel anything, I feel completely and utterly dead inside, I even view the writing of this like a log of events instead of a story, the only emotions I have felt for years is emptiness and anger.
And now I need to get a job, but can't be hired, being a High School dropout. I am completely and utterly lost, I don't even know what I want by writing this.
TLDR;

Listening to Trump What did millions of voters see in Trump? His speeches hold the answer - by Christian Parenti

Leaning into the mic, face flushed, speaking with unhurried and angry deliberation, Donald Trump told a cheering New Hampshire audience: "We're gonna bring businesses back. We're gonna have businesses that used to be in New Hampshire, that are now in Mexico, come back to New Hampshire. And," pausing for applause, "you can tell them, to go fuck themselves! Because, they let you down, and they left!"
The crowd roared its approval.
It has become apparent that very few coastal lefties, progressives, or liberals actually watched any full-length Trump speeches. I have a different problem: I may have watched too many. During early spring I went down a multi-week-long, late-night, Trump YouTube rabbit hole. I found myself watching hours of raw video feed of Trump campaign speeches. Insomnia got me there but I stayed for the mesmerizing dada quality of the Trump show, and for the mind-bending experience of watching a reality TV freak articulate surprisingly subversive political truths about the economy and America's role in the world.
Contrary to how he was portrayed in the mainstream media Trump did not talk only of walls, immigration bans, and deportations. In fact he usually didn't spend much time on those themes. Don't get me wrong, Trump is a racist, misogynist, and confessed sexual predator who has legitimized dangerous street-level hate. Most of all, Trump is a fraud. And his administration will almost certainly be a terrible new low in the evolution of American authoritarianism.
But the heart of his message was something different, an ersatz economic populism, which has been noted far and wide, but also a strong, usually overlooked, antiwar message. Both spoke to legitimate working-class concerns.
Furthermore, his message was delivered with passion and a strange warmth. Dare I say it? Donald Trump has charisma. It is a mix of almost comic self-confidence, emotional intelligence, a common touch, but also at times slight vulnerability. Let's face it, even the aura of sex around Trump -- sleazy and predatory, sometimes sophomoric, as in the "small hands" jokes -- was at least part of a libidinal aura.
Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, constrained by sexist double standards and lawyerly calculation, too often came across as bloodless. At her best moments, like facing down the vainglorious Trey Gowdy, she exuded impressive competence, brains, and steely self-control. She bested Trump in the debates. But more often, Clinton came across like a scripted and dissembling Human Resources manager.
At almost every turn the liberal pundits misunderstood, or did not hear, what Trump was saying. After his win in the Nevada caucus Trump said: "We won with highly educated, we won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated! We're the smartest people, we're the most loyal people." Liberals lampooned him, assuming that he had insulted part of his base.
A different interpretation translates those comments as: "Trump understands that it's not all my fault that I couldn't get an education. He understands that even people who don't have advanced degrees can make good decisions and are worthy of respect."
One of the few coastal elites to have cracked the Trump discursive code is the otherwise odious Peter Thiel, who told the National Press Club, "the media is always taking Trump literally. It never takes him seriously, but it always takes him literally." Voters on the other hand, said Thiel, "take Trump seriously but not literally." Bingo!
Or to translate this into the academese of Roland Barthes, perhaps Trump's discourse was more "writerly" (scriptable) than its simple sounds suggested; that is his meanings, because of the form of their delivery, were open to multiple understandings and re-assembly by the listener. Even his endlessly invoked wall, in reality a proposal for more militarized policing, could sound like a public works scheme, an infrastructure-based jobs program.
The writerly nature of Trump's rhetoric was apparent in his contradictions. He infamously kicked off his campaign with his racist "they're sending rapists" comments. But later asserted that he had "a tremendous relationship with the Mexican people." And said, "I love Mexican people." "They're great workers. They're fantastic people and they want legal immigration."
Again, the smart set smirked at Trump's inconsistency. But in the logic of the Chaos Candidate's discourse each statement was a floating signifier that audiences could use as they wished.
In Trump's discourse A does not necessarily connect to B. If you don't like A, just focus on B. The structure of Trump's discourse will never demand that all the pieces be connected. That, in part, is what he meant with the Orwellian phrase "truthful hyperbole." He has even described his own statements as mere "opening bids" in a negotiation.
Clearly, some people of color took Trump's invitation not to connect the dots and focused more on Trump's disavowal of racism than on his racist utterances. If in fact 29 percent of Latinos did vote for Trump (this shocking statistic is disputed) having sunk into the variety-show style discourse of his stump speeches, I can imagine how some people could convince themselves to overlook Trump's racism and just embrace his ersatz populism.
Hillary never insulted Mexicans or threatened to deport them. Yet she never seemed to declare her "love" for them either.
A typical Trump speech would tee-up with reference to "the wall" but then quickly pivot to economic questions: trade, jobs, descriptions of economic suffering, critiques of deindustrialization. His speeches were rambling, freewheeling, peppered with non-sequiturs and shout-outs to local businessmen, effusive thanks to key local supporters and to the crowd as a whole. "Beautiful. So, so nice. So nice. So, they say we set a record tonight."
Often Trump's sentences were just distinct phrases strung together. The lack of structure, far from boring, gave his stump talks an almost hypnotic quality. The listener could relax and just let it flow. In this regard Trump seems to a have stepped from the pages of Neil Postman's old book Amusing Ourselves To Death, in that he personified the cut-up dada style assault on coherent thought that is the essence of television.
Choppy as they were, Trump's speeches nonetheless had a clear thesis: Regular people have been getting screwed for far too long and he was going to stop it.
"When I see the crumbling roads and bridges, or the dilapidated airports, or the factories moving overseas to Mexico, or to other countries, I know these problems can all be fixed, but not by Hillary Clinton -- only by me. The fact is, we can come back bigger and better and stronger than ever before -- Jobs, jobs, jobs!" And amid the wacky bricolage he would suddenly sound like Bernie Sanders: "I would never support what has to be the craziest idea in the history of US politics: allowing the government to invest Social Security retirement funds in the stock market."
Then he might read a few poll results, mock an opponent, and move on, perhaps to praising veterans. "So backstage, I met some of the vets, the greatest people we have in this country." From there he would slide into antiwar, anti-NATO, maybe even anti-imperialist riffs, delivered not in a "woke" fashion, but rather in the "let them fight their own wars" vein of American isolationism.
"She made a terrible mistake on Libya. And not only did she make the mistake, but then they complicated the mistake by having no management once they bombed the you-know-what out of Gadhafi." He told his audiences what many of them already knew but never saw discussed on TV, that US foreign policy has delivered apocalyptic outcomes: "We would be so much better off if Gadhafi were in charge right now. If these politicians went to the beach and didn't do a thing, and we had Saddam Hussein and if we had Gadhafi in charge, instead of having terrorism all over the place, at least they killed terrorists, all right?"
Meanwhile, Hillary ramped up her anti-Russia and anti-Assad rhetoric, giving voters the impression she would deliver yet more war. Trump also linked war to economic suffering in America. Consider this, from a New Hampshire speech:
We spent $2 trillion in Iraq. China is taking a lot of the oil, just so you understand. ISIS may have it and Iran may have it, but China is taking out a lot of the oil. Can you imagine? We spent -- we never do anything right with China. We spent $2 trillion. Thousands of lives of great people, mostly young, beautiful people, wounded warriors, who I love, all over the place, all over the place, not treated properly by the way.
And then:
Iran and Iraq, they were the same. They were twins. They have wars for years -- wars, boom. One goes this way, one goes that way. One -- and I said if you take out one, the other one is going to take over. Well, we took out one and look at the mess we have. We destabilized the Middle East and it is a mess . . . I mean I'm not a fan of Saddam Hussein, but he ran the place. And, he had no weapons of mass destruction. And now instead of Saddam Hussein, we have far more brutal. We have ISIS . . . What do we get out of this? What do we get?
Much to my surprise, the young Yemeni American shopkeeper at my local convenience store in Brooklyn supported Trump. Why? Because, instead of hearing in Trump's rhetoric a threat to round up Muslims, he heard a promise to stop supplying Saudi Arabia with bombs to drop on Yemen. "Over a thousand school kids killed by those bombs! Just little kids!"
Mainstream media typically treats American imperialism as sacrosanct, beyond criticism, and so Trump's antiwar message was mostly just ignored. But in much of the heartland -- where the people who actually fight America's wars come from, and go back to with their PTSD, missing limbs, addictions, and related financial burdens -- there is deep if quiet concern about the broadly defined costs and apparent failure of our belligerent foreign policy. Even the average "low information voter" -- while perhaps confused about the details -- knows that the country is at war, that this is expensive, kills people, and doesn't seem to lead to peace.
On election eve a friend in Alabama, a combat-disabled Iraq veteran turned contractor, sent me the following text:
I'll tell you man, this is how we won. Some percent of minorities, LGBT, women and Muslims crossed over . . . People are sick of the corruption and trump is going to be very socially liberal, minus abortion. And his spending priorities are totally anti-conservative, minus military. Honestly man, I'm praying that he doesn't let the system change him. It's gonna be a lot harder than he thinks. Fuck Koch brothers. And Fuck Paul Ryan too.
Turns out my Trump-supporting friend was to some extent correct. Despite Trump's infamous bigotry he outperformed both Romney and McCain among African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latinos.
These were Hillary's firewalls and they all cracked, at least enough for a few sparks to get through. Half a million black women who voted for Obama in 2012 stayed home in 2016. 13 percent of black men voted for Trump. And where Obama got 60 percent of voters making under $50,000 in 2012, Hillary was closer to 50 percent. That's not a crack; it's a gaping hole.
The Democratic Party establishment, now spinning desperately to cover their own strategic incompetence, is blaming the white working class as "deplorable" racists. Progressives and leftists who echo this line are making the worst mistake possible.
If Trump's victory were merely the result of racism how could it be that many white blue-collar, rust-belt areas voted for Obama by wide margins in 2008 and 2012 but then voted Trump? Obama received 1.5 million more votes from white men than did Hillary.
If Trump's victory were just sexism how could it be that 42 percent of women with college degrees voted for him? Something deeper is going on.
Nate Cohn of the New York Times described the geography:
The Wyoming River Valley of Pennsylvania -- which includes Scranton and Wilkes-Barre -- voted for Mr. Trump. It had voted for Mr. Obama by double digits. Youngstown, Ohio, where Mr. Obama won by more than 20 points in 2012, was basically a draw. Mr. Trump swept the string of traditionally Democratic and old industrial towns along Lake Erie. Counties that supported Mr. Obama in 2012 voted for Mr. Trump by 20 points.
Obama won Iowa in 2012; Trump won it this time. That same pattern -- Clinton underperforming Barack Obama among white working-class voters -- spread all across the upper Midwest and Northeast. This cost her key electoral college states she had expected to win, most notably Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
What was it that the voters saw in Trump? The mainstream media version of Trump was as a crazy and brutal pig -- not entirely untrue. The words "huge" and "tremendous" were leitmotifs in mocking Trump's limited vocabulary. But his stump speech lexicon also included "loyalty" "win" "pledge" "beautiful" and "love" -- lots and lots of "love."
In that New Hampshire speech where Trump dropped the F-bomb he followed it up with: "We want the businesses that stayed. I've toured a lot of businesses that stayed. It's hard for them to stay . . . those are the ones that we have to love and cherish."
Or consider the particularly emotional exchange Trump had with a father from upstate New York. "I lost my son two years ago to a heroin overdose," says the father from off camera. "Well, you know they have a tremendous problem in New Hampshire with the heroin," says Trump. "Unbelievable. It's always the first question I get, and they have a problem all over. And it comes through the border. We're going to build a wall."
Then, instead of moralizing anger, playing against type come compassion and respect: "In all fairness to your son, it's a tough thing. Some very, very strong people have not been able to get off it. So we have to work with people to get off it."
At this point it becomes clear that the bereaved father has started to cry. Trump shifts to tough-guy reassuring. "You just relax, OK? Yeah, it's a tough deal. Come on. It's a tough deal." And, in a veiled reference to Trump's own brother's death from alcoholism, "I know what you went through." Then, to the audience while pointing at the father: "He's a great father, I can see it. And your son is proud of you. Your son is proud of you. It's tough stuff, it's tough stuff, and it could be stopped."
My point is not that we should like Trump but rather that the Left must understand why almost sixty million Americans voted for him. The answer seems clear: it was Trump's ersatz populism, antiwar message, and his ability to, in a Bill Clinton style, "feel" people's real pain.
Ultimately, the Democratic establishment brought this loss on themselves. They spurned and tried to sabotage Bernie Sanders and his class message. Trump took the Bernie-style populism, emptied it of real class politics, reduced it to a jumble of affective associations, and used it to beat up the smug liberals of the professional managerial class. It worked.
Alas, too bad for all those well-meaning Trump voters and everyone else. Trump is a fraud, a ripoff artist who leaves unpaid bills and collapsed casinos in his wake.
The next four years look very grim indeed. As president he will attempt to govern by Twitter and soundbite, dragging American political discourse deeper into the muck. The worst-case scenario is that Trump will establish a modus vivendi with the far-right Koch-brother-led wing of the GOP and achieve a historic gutting of the regulatory state plus a momentary debt, tax-cut, and infrastructure-funded economic boom. This could consolidate a new right-wing populist base -- at least until it all comes crashing down. If the Democrats continue shunning the working class, they will only help solidify Trumpism.
Or perhaps the Chaos Candidate's colossal ego, infamously short attention span, and apparent pleasure in firing people will produce the Chaos Cabinet and exacerbate divisions within the GOP and paralysis on the policy front. Perhaps, the Clinton- DNC cabal can be broken up and run off and the Democratic Party can re-launch on the basis of a neo-Rooseveltian/Sanders style set of programs.
Either way, the grassroots left -- as in social movements, advocacy groups, and organized labor -- faces scary and unprecedented challenges.
