the problem

From David Sheilds’s Nobody Hates Trump More Than Trump, a collection of quick blurstings… page 127-128…

An acquaintance tells me that, according to a data mining firm at which he works, I am Irish, a Republican, conservative in my social orientation, opposed to raising taxes to support social security, a gun owner, a supporter of military interventions overseas (more concerned with fighting terrorism than protecting civil liberties), don’t believe income inequality is a major problem, not particularly concerned about Trump’s “possible” conflict of interests, fervently believe the media has overplayed the Russia scandal, and am opposed to the impeachment of Trump.  Ruh-roh.

The internet cookies probably show he likes ball sports, maybe some country music, maybe shows a complaint about “political correctness” — maybe does some hunting and goes to the outdoors…

The depressing thing about our politics — it’s subsumed by cultural impressions, and if the cultural impressions and entertainment choices differ or gets eclectic (live in a couple or a few different social mileus that contradict politically) — you’ll be box you in anyways.
