Ok yes he did technically run in 2 states in 2000, for 2 months:

In 2000, Trump ran in the California and Michigan primaries for nomination as the Reform Party candidate for the 2000 presidential election but withdrew from the race in February 2000. A July 1999 poll matching him against likely Republican nominee George W. Bush and likely Democratic nominee Al Goreshowed Trump with seven percent support.

But in 2011 he just talked about it without ever doing it:

In 2011, Trump speculated about running against President Barack Obama in the 2012 election, making his first speaking appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in February 2011 and giving speeches in early primary states. In May 2011, he announced he would not run. Trump's presidential ambitions were generally not taken seriously at the time.

Ahhh, so that’s what the “call of the void” is…

I believe that’s the origin of “tits or GTFO” came from too, a cringey way of saying that they don’t care if your a girl if you say something dumb online. Though predictably it morphed into incel taunts and male chauvinist bullshit once the meaning was lost.

Yup lawyers who take these kinds of cases that are easy wins, do it on contingency. If they don’t think you have a good case they tell you, and then charge you hourly.

That is going to fucking suck. Welcome back to the goddamn 1960s.

What can’t that sort of history repeat? We just keep getting economic crashes, pandemics, and racism.

Lincoln’s assassination was a pretty big part of the south getting away with their insurrection.

But the constitution was fucked by the slave drivers from the start. And it ends with our non-representative congress, and presidents elected with a minority of the popular vote.

Sadly it’s more of a production problem than a demand problem. I believe there are 100s of thousands of preorders pending. They are just hard to build to any decent standard. Or apparently impossible to build to even a basic working standard.

Manna got rampant capitalism + AI pretty close, and has predicted McDonalds payment kiosks, Amazon worker abuse, and probably some of the tech layoffs too.

Don’t underestimate the dipshit antivaxxer hippies out there that were otherwise democratic voters (if they could remember to vote.

I know a couple. I’m working on them but not very hopeful. I’m also a bit worried their kid is gonna die from whooping cough or measles.
