- President Dwayne E. M. D. H. Camacho For Clinton

When Trump first began rising in the polls, my thoughts were of future President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho from the movie Idiocracy. It's a B movie but I recommend it because it's 'got what plants crave'.

Turns out the screenwriters of that movie are so horrified by the prospect of a Trump Presidency that they're going to be making anti-Trump ads with the actor who played that role, Terry Crews:

Terry Crews plays the role of President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, and his character has drawn some uncomfortable comparisons to presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. So much so, that Idiocracy writers Etan Cohen and Mike Judge are teaming up to write a series of anti-Trump ads starring Crews as Camacho.

Since Hollywood screen writers are not the deep thinkers that they believe they are, I will make a prediction now, in advance of those ads. I predict that they will blow up in their faces and actually increase Trump support. Idiocracy was based on the idea that smart people were outbred by stupid people after all natural obstacles to being stupid were removed by liberal policies, and Feminism caused intelligent women to wait until their 50's to begin to consider having children. That connection will be easily made by intelligent, rational thinking people. But that's not why these ads will fail. They will fail because that's not how we (the American electorate) decide things anymore.

These days we make decisions based on our intuition (deeply affected by how we feel) and our insecurity about the future. The emotional image of a future President Camacho can't say anything about Trump, good or bad, that ever will convince people that chucking out our suicidal policies in deference to a 'hail Mary pass' like Trump, is anything but a great idea.

That's my call.

Idiocracy is a movie that is summed up in the first five minutes:

The rest is filler.

I would love to see a Netflix or an Amazon mini-series that takes a more serious science fiction approach (i.e. the short story 'The Marching Morons') to what was touched on in the link above.

Netflix and Amazon (especially) are lefty run, so no chance of that happening.

And on June 8, 2016 at approximately 2027 hours PDT a quick purview of the major news sites indicates that Hillary Clinton has just been coronated as God per her sweep of California. Lord help us.

Hey Tom.. Brexit.. will they do it?

No clue on Brexit. I'm hoping for it, but I don't follow brit politics closely enough to tell. My general cynicism about all things political makes me lean toward them remaining in as a prediction, but it's a close call. It would certainly be a good thing for the currency markets however if they left. That market is much more subject to political distortion if there are only a very few choices to be had. And less politics in the market is always a good thing.

It is my understanding this vote isn't even binding. The people could vote to leave and the leadership is free to ignore their wishes.
