John Dummett, Jr. for President

imagePrompted by a comment here on the blog, I did a little looking around and found indeed that John Dummett, Jr. has declared himself a candidate for President, and has a page at “The Politics and Governance Portal.” You might want to read the page, that concludes:

With strong right-wing policies that are tenacious and ultimately uncompromising, John Dummet (sic), Jr belongs to a class of strict conservative candidates likely to appeal to voters with traditional values, but at the potential cost of finding moderates unsympathetic to their message.

I gather that Dummett pronounces his name dew-MAY.

The page is also interesting for its list of potential Republican candidates for President in 2016, 64 of them.

    Pick a lane, any lane, any day now!

    Last time around Dew Made ran for president as a Democrat. This time Dew Made is running for president as a Republican. Now there is a real decisive guy that sticks to his chosen party platform, at least for one election cycle.

    That’s a French pronunciation, which makes him not a natural born citizen and therefore ineligible to be President.

    He has OBVIOUS divided loyalties, and the intent of the Founding Fathers was that no such person could be President.

    I’m inclined to pronounce it “Dumb ass”.
    And on that note, I might have less time to devote to poking fun at birthers. Gog.com just added a bunch of classic Star Wars computer games to their library.

    Sincerely as a Democrat, or ran like a Democrat the way that Randall Terry ran as a Democrat?

    There is a town in Okieland called “Battiest”. Residents want you to call it “Battiste”. Well, then, you should spell it that way. Duh.

    It appears that when this guy ran in 2012 he received 2 votes. Not 2 electoral votes, but two votes. And not even from his home state. (He is/was from California, the votes were from Indiana).

    Actually, no. Dumet with one T would be indeed pronounced “Dew-may” (sort of, silent t, at least in Northern France) but with 2 Ts, it would be pronounced Dew-MET, no questions about it. (As in for example “allumette:)

    As a Birther, he ran as a Democrat for president apparently trying to achieve standing for his court battles. He was a DINO.

    Their spelling seems German. 🙂

    I always pronounce Boehner the German way (“böhner” with an umlaut, i.e. more like “behner”).

    Two votes for Dew Maid????!!!! Really?

    I have a new conspiracy theory for Doc to consider. It’s beginning to look like all the wackos are going through all the Birther machinations to drive everyone else insane. It must be a devious scheme a by Birthers to destroy our Constitution and America. Who are the enemies of sanity and freedom? Birthers!

    That reminds me of one of my favorites politician’s with appropriate names

    Pat Swindall- elected by the people of Georgia…Swindall…..

    In October 1988, Swindall was indicted on ten counts of perjury related to a money laundering scheme. In recorded dealings with an undercover IRS agent posing as a representative of the Colombian drug cartel, Swindall was told that the $850,000 loan he was seeking to finish building his luxury home included illegal drug money and that he would be part of an operation to “wash” cash. Swindall proposed that an associate set up a mortgage company to funnel the money through.

    During an ensuing investigation into the illegal drug trade, Swindall lied to a federal grand jury about his knowledge that the funds were from a drug trafficking operation, which was refuted by the undercover tapes. While one of the perjury charges was dismissed by District Judge Richard C. Freeman, the jury convicted Swindall on nine counts and sentenced to one year in prison and a fine of $30,450.[1][5][6]

    He got twice as many votes as Susan Daniels 🙂

    Actually, both of these numbers are likely quite wrong. A closer look tells us that not every state reports write-in results the same way. Some states list individual names; others say “Scattered”, “None of these”, or “All Others”.

    So conceivably, Mr. Dummett and Ms. Daniels could have gotten as many as a few thousand out of some 179+ million votes cast. Landslide, indeed 😀

    I couldn’t help but notice that Dummett wants to shrink the size of government, but who do you suppose he works for? The California Department of Fish and Game, that’s who.

    Also, he needs to show us his birth certificate.

    Well, once he’s been President, he gets a lifetime pension, so he can cut like crazy, because he doesn’t need to worry about whether there’s a job for him to go back to.

    Brenda Caprioni: When the dollar collapses and your families are starving to death lets chat again.

    This is particularly funny. Do you actually pay any attention at all to the currency markets?

    The dollar has actually been stronger reversing a downward decline that had begun under GW Bush in 2002.

    Randomly, I’d attribute it to the following factors:

    1. The dollar is always perceived as a safe haven during global crises, ie: investors start buying U.S. Treasuries to avoid risk.

    2. The EU still struggles to resolve its debt crisis because the central Bank foolishly sticks to its Friedmanesque policies, thus weakening the demand for euros.

    3. China’s growth slowed in 2014, pushing investors back towards the dollar. (Despite reforms, both China and Japan continue to purchase dollars to push the value of their own currencies down. This helps their exports.)

    Basically, you’re delusional.

    I use to hear a lot of that kind of talk from my father-in-law. Every year we’d get a rehashed “We’re less than a year away from a complete economical collapse! Let me tell you about George Soros!” speech. Eventually, when his predictions kept not happening, he wised up and stopped making them.

    Its always baffled me, how otherwise very intelligent people, with decades of life experience, can be so paranoid and ignorant.

    Oh, you.
    It would be laughable, but it makes me quite sad to see someone consumed with so much raw hatred, babbling on, slurring people you’ve never even met. What a terrible life you must have. I will pray for you.

    In the meantime, think of this: President Obama ordered the kill on Osama Bin Laden. Right now, he wants to go to war with the Islamic State. If he’s favoring Muslims, I’d hate to see him when he’s angry at them.

    Also, another reason to be of good cheer: Today is the anniversary of the day Dick Cheney shot an elderly man in the face while hunting, and refused to take the blame. Cheney is a beacon of morality, wouldn’t you say?
