The opposite of Trump? I wouldn't brag

Andrew Yang's presidential bid seems to be based on the color of his skin and not the content of his character. In one of the debates, he tapped into the stereotype, saying, "The opposite of Donald Trump is an Asian man who loves math."

Yang is not Asian. His parents are, having emigrated from Taiwan.

He is the son of an immigrant? So is The Donald.

As for math, well, his dad was a scientist who is credited for work on 69 patents. But Yang is a lawyer. A millionaire, true, but not a billionaire. A billion is 1,000 million.

But the biggest difference between the two is President Donald John Trump is a leader. He walks the walk, takes care of his people, and sets an example.

Yang on the other hand is a talker.

The Washington Free Beacon reported, "Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said the United States may have to eliminate private car ownership to combat climate change during MSNBC's climate forum at Georgetown University Thursday morning.

"He told MSNBC host Ali Velshi that 'we might not own our own cars' by 2050 to wean the United States economy off of fossil fuels, describing private car ownership as 'really inefficient and bad for the environment.' Privately owned cars would be replaced by a 'constant roving fleet of electric cars.'"

Roving electric cars?

How will that work in rural America?

How will roving electric cars replace pickup trucks?

I won't go into the cost or who pays because I know it will be me.

His full quote was "What we're really selling is not the car, it's mobility.

"So if you have mobility that's then tied into a much more, if you had like, for example, this constant roving fleet of electric cars that you would just order up, then you could diminish the impact of ground transportation on our environment very, very quickly."

Why doesn't Yang do that now?

There already a roving fleet of cars in Washington, where he made his speech. They are called buses.

The idea of roving electric cars is ridiculously impractical because Yang thinks America is one big city.

West Virginia has the same size population as San Jose scattered about 24,000 square miles of hills, ridges, and valleys. There are 77 people per square mile on average.

San Jose's population density is 5,803 per square mile.

His car policy is as foolish as his gun policy. The sheriff's office is 20 minutes away from Poca.

Yang views himself as an Asian who loves math. He thinks that is the opposite of President Trump, but I guarantee you that Donald Trump didn't crawl out of that first bankruptcy court mess without appreciating math. He went from a billion bucks in debt to becoming a multi-billionaire.

I suggest that if Yang is serious about running against him (and I doubt Yang is) he studies and discovers just who Donald Trump is.


  1. Dear Mr. Yang:

    Leave us the fook alone.



    1. Fook...

      I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand
      Walking through the streets of Soho in the rain
      He was looking for the place called Lee Ho Fook's
      Going to get a big dish of beef chow mein...

    2. Love that songūüĎćūüŹĽ

  2. so, uber eats will deliver my rebar in a pious?

  3. Wonder how much coal will be used by the power stations to generate all the electricity for his roving freet of ewectric cars?
    Ain't enough wind turbines or solar panels in the world to power his hair-brained scheme either.
    Dude, stop yanging my chain.

    1. Coal, see? Good for WV. Yang wants Don's vote after all ;-)

  4. "But the biggest difference between the two is President Donald John Trump is a leader. He walks the walk, takes care of his people, and sets an example."

    And can't be bothered to cover his 3rd "wife" with an umbrella. Trump is filth.

    1. Hell, Zippy couldn't even open an umbrella to cover his "wife".

      Democrats are not just hypocrites, they're incompetent hypocrites.

  5. Yang would not last two days out in rural America. What a fool.

    1. Looks like we'll be forced to go back to 1 horsepower.

    2. The Quakers?

      Got that covered!!!!

  6. Yang is the opposite of PDJT. Yang is a man with idiotic and insane ideas.

  7. My mom told me what the home front was like during WWII. She remembered how, even though the country was fighting for its existence, anybody with a vehicle would do anything to beat the rationing of gas.

    Imagine what happens with cars.

  8. I like the idea,, I can't drive anyway...


    1. You and inpeach pie putz, what's her name???

  9. So, I go for a ride to the beach in one of Yang's "roving vehicles." My family fills it up with towels and toys and sand and fast food wrappers. We hang a souvenir trinket from the rear-view, slap a couple of bumper stickers on it. When do we have to return it, and who's responsible for de-personalizing it? See, I like to leave a lot of stuff in my car which I wouldn't like to see shuffled off with the next "rotation." What Yang doesn't get is that Americans see cars as MORE than transportation. ='[.]'=

  10. Seems to me that Yang is violating the old adage

    "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."

    Come to think of it, all the Dem candidates are.

  11. Yang is just another shyster. He said he'd give a dozen people $1000 a month no strings attached.

    But instead of paying out his own pocket he'd use campaign funds. That right there tells you how clueless he is.

    OTOH driverless cars are definitely on the way. Maybe ten years but 20 for sure. They will penetrate WV cities but likely little else other than to offer free rides to the poor and elderly.

    Already on the left coast they are testing driverless mack trucks on the interstate. You can find videos on youtube.

    I expect they will also replace the TTA bus service since they will be too expensive.

  12. Once the programming becomes more robust, I think cities will mandate driverless cars for efficiency reasons. The suburbs and rural areas will be a different story, of course.

    Always remember the First Rule of Computer Software: NEVER buy "Version 1" of anything...

    1. Hardware, too, my friend. Let someone else beta-test. The manufacturers do the alpha, early adopters are the beta.


  14. Makes me think of Johnny Cab in Total Recall.

  15. everyone seems to forget Yang has a foreskin fetish.

  16. Why do you want these candidates to go away? They are so entertaining and it is all on the house. I wish the number of candidates increases.
