Trumpflakes - I posted an article recently indicating that many of these folks support Drumph precisely because they know he's running a con. In a way it's the ultimate revenge of the nerds.

Loren - in some cases that's the same as being full of shit.

I don't care if they're quotes or not, Tom.  That stuff WORKS!

I hope Urban Dictionary entries are quotations.

DeVos it - to completely blow a job interview and still get the job

Flynncinerate - to lose a good job by accidentally engaging in treasonous acts

Nixon out - to quit or leave an organization or position before you get canned

SCROTUS - initialism for So Called Ruler Of The United States

treasonish - the unpunished crime of betraying one's country through espionage and alternative facts

trumped - to be fired

trumpflakes - people who blindly defend Donald Trump, no matter how Insane or batshit crazy the case may be

Trumpshake - A handshake between two persons that goes past the usual time--it can last up to 20 seconds

How about a couple celebrities?

By simple common sense I don't believe in God.
-- Charlie Chaplin

I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious ideas of heaven and hell, of future life for individuals, or of a personal God. So far as religion of the day is concerned, it is a damned fake… Religion is all bunk.
-– Thomas Edison

"Full of itself" ... whew!  Sound like anyone we know???

A triple play for today.  These seem so relevant right now.

"What can one possibly introduce into a mind that is already full, and full of itself?" - Joseph Joubert

"To know what is right and not do it is the worst cowardice." - Confucius

"The same people who can deny others everything are famous for refusing themselves nothing." - James Henry Leigh Hunt

Another pair that correlate well:

With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil — that takes religion.
-- Steven Weinberg

Nothing is so effective as the notion of the sacred for motivating good people to do bad things.
-- Ozymandias Ramses II (YouTube producer)

Bertold, I like that Mencken quote you have given. Here is a shorter version of the same thought that I also like:

It is better to walk alone, than with a crowd going in the wrong direction. - Herman Siu

The prophet is the voice of doom addressing those who are doomed to intensify the chaos they seek to avoid.

--Stanley Rosen
