1,000 Words to Ponder

For your consideration.

Spotted in the mountains of north Georgia and presented without further comment save that, no, I don’t think it was an ironic presentation:

  1. CSK says:

    I wonder if some day, some day, the people who display these kind of signs and banners will realize, and accept, how deeply, profoundly Trump despises them.

  2. Mister Bluster says:

    I sure hope whoever displayed this has a firm grip on his balls because reality left him a long time ago!

  3. Gustopher says:

    I’m sure the man who put this up thinks he is triggering libs.

    The “no man, no woman, no commie can stop him” reads like Shakespeare. Specifically like the witches prophesy “nobody born from a woman will ever harm Macbeth.”

    I guess Trump will be stopped by an enby. Or a small child. Or a virus.

  4. EddieInCA says:

    This is ironic.

    A guy who never served.
    A guy who paid off a porn star.
    A guy who sucks up to Putin.
    A guy who has been married multiple times.
    A guy who has multiple bankruptcies.
    A guy who has lost too many recent legal battles to count.


    A woman, a man, and a commie have stopped him. Multiple times.

  5. Michael Cain says:

    How am I supposed to interpret “stump” on this poster?

  6. Sleeping Dog says:

    And in the background, the theme from Deliverance plays.

    …thinks he is triggering libs.

    But the libs, just shake their heads in bemusement.

  7. Jax says:

    AND he’s still got his Christmas lights up. 😉

  8. Kathy says:

    Ok. We can inform the SETI people there is definitely no intelligent life in the mountains of north Georgia.

  9. CSK says:

    Did Ben Garrison execute this banner? He seems to enjoy limning a muscle-bound Trump.

  10. Scott F. says:

    I’ve never quite understood hero worship. There are definitely public figures I admire and recognize as special talents, but I’ve never hung a poster of someone on my wall, even when I was a kid.

    But hero worship of someone with such a well-documented history of missteps, if not epic failure… that is otherworldly.

  11. dazedandconfused says:

    @Michael Cain:

    “Stump” should be interpreted as “get him to admit being wrong”.

  12. CSK says:

    @Scott F.:
    I really don’t get it, either, but apparently Cult45 sees Trump as their savior and defender, unique among all politicians whether they’re Republican or Democrat.

  13. Matt says:

    I can’t figure out wtf that gun is supposed to be. It’s like someone with a child like understanding of weaponry took an M60 and smashed it together with a Soviet RPG. Combined with the Soviet Hind helicopter in the background the whole “no commie” thing makes it all weird.

  14. CSK says:

    It may be some sort of futuristic rocket launcher, and he’s shooting down those Commie copters depicted. But that’s weird, because he and his culties love them some Russia. Well, I don’t expect logic or consistency from Cult45.

  15. ImProPer says:

    What could of been if not for the bone spurs.
    10 more words to ponder: “I was always the best athlete, people don’t know that.”

  16. Scott O says:

    @EddieInCA: Also, he’s a guy who wears high heels and makeup.

  17. CSK says:

    @Scott O:
    And spends more time on his coiffeur than most women.

  18. gVOR08 says:

    @Matt: You’re right, it’s a Hind, which leads me to assume some poster from the Rambo in Afghanistan movie was the model for this.

  19. Mikey says:

    @Scott F.:

    I’ve never hung a poster of someone on my wall, even when I was a kid.

    I did…

  20. JohnSF says:

    Thought 1:
    Please let me know if you’re going to pull the trigger on that, ’cause I’ll want to be standing some considerable distance away and behind when you do.

    Thought 2:
    <"No living commie may hinder me!”
    * gets stabbed by a hobbit*

    Thought 3:
    “Dad, this rat tastes funny…”
    “Yeah, but we pwned the libs son, we pwned the libs!”
    “A troll-lol-lol, a troll-lol-lol, a troll-lol-lol-lol-lol”

  22. OzarkHillbilly says:

    @Mikey: So did I.

  23. Daryl and his brother Darryl says:

    There are a bunch of images in this genre…showing Trump as a complete macho alpha man. The juxtaposition of these with the reality of a man who cannot walk down a moderate ramp is so telling. The idea these people have of Trump is at complete odds with the reality of Trump — in every single fuqing aspect, not just physical.
    The problem our country faces, today, is how to break through to the severely troubled people who have signed onto Cult45.

  24. dazedandconfused says:


    Jung thought the seeking of a Messiah indicates an inferiority complex. There is certainly a lot of that about in poor white trash. Left behind by the exporting of our industrial base and resultant evisceration of the unions. Left behind on computer tech by poor schooling. They will soon be left behind by a con man who exploited their butt hurt for his own gain.
