Polk County is just down the road from where I live. Beautiful place. But, it's also where you go to show your kids wott happens when you screw your sister.

Edit - 96.7% white with a population of just over 16,000 and average income of $16,000. It's no cultural center.

Edit, Edit... Most recent Census Bureau data reports a per capita income of $20,000.

What is that like a couple hours from Knoxville? I worked on a dairy farm in White Pine in 1977/78. Doesn't seem from the census figures that the guy really needs the billboard. lol


Maybe not quite 2 hours from Knoxville down US 411. It's in the extreme southeast corner of Tennessee, bordered by North Carolina and Georgia.

Trump is a huge, er I mean YUGE, foreign policy disaster just waiting to happen...


Donald Trump's Brexit Reaction Missed a Big — Yuge, Even — Detail About Scotland

GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump hailed Scotland for voting to leave the European Union on Friday morning after landing in the country to check on his golf resort in Turnberry.

In a tweet, Trump wrote he saw Scotland "going wild over the vote" when he landed. "They took their country back, just like we will take America back," Trump continued. "No games!"

But here's the thing: Scotland didn't vote to exit the EU.

In fact, the country voted widely in favor of remaining by 62% to 38%, though the United Kingdom as a whole decidedly voted to leave the union.

Trump then posted a statement on Facebook regarding the decision, noting, "I hope America is watching."

This sharply contradicts what he said just days before in an interview with Fox Business Network. "I don't think anybody should listen to me, because I haven't really focused on it very much," he said. "But my inclination would be to get out, because you know, just go it alone."

Meanwhile, Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told an Edinburgh press conference that the decision to exit the EU means a second referendum for Scottish independence is "now on the table."

"As things stand, Scotland faces the prospect of being taken out of the EU against our will. I regard that as democratically unacceptable," Sturgeon said.

Trump will return from his one-day stint in Scotland on Saturday to continue his campaign's pivot to the general election.

An amazing mind indeed....

Trump’s Scottish trip is a bigger mistake than he realizes
By Steve Benen 06/23/16 08:45 AM

There’s a fair amount of precedent for presidential candidates traveling abroad ahead of the election. In July 2008, for example, then-Sen. Barack Obama wowed international audiences with a historic visit to Berlin. Almost exactly four years later, in July 2012, Mitt Romney took an overseas trip of his own. (It really didn’t go well for the Republican.)

So when Donald Trump’s campaign said the presumptive GOP nominee would travel to Scotland ahead of the Republican convention, it was only natural to assume Trump was headed abroad to bolster his foreign policy credentials.

But as the New York Times reported, the truth is a little more complicated...

His campaign is desperately short of cash. He has struggled to hire staff. Influential Republicans are demanding that he demonstrate he can run a serious general election campaign.

But, for reasons that emphasize just how unusual a candidate he is, Donald J. Trump is leaving the campaign trail on Thursday to travel to Scotland to promote a golf course his company purchased on the country’s southwestern coast.


This may sound like some sort of joke, but it’s quite real. This isn’t a situation in which an American presidential hopeful has scheduled meetings with foreign officials, and he’s checking in on his business interests while he’s there; it’s largely the opposite. Trump’s Scottish sojourn appears to have practically nothing to do with the office he’s seeking.

The Times report added that Trump’s business interests “still drive his behavior, and his schedule. He has planned two days in Scotland, with no meetings with government or political leaders scheduled.” The Republican’s itinerary “reads like a public relations junket crossed with a golf vacation,” complete with “a ceremonial ribbon cutting.”

Scott W. Reed, senior political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, added, “Everyone knows this is the wrong thing for the nominee to be doing now, and it is amazing this can’t be stopped.”

Wait, it’s even more amazing than that.

If the Scottish golf course were a wildly successful venture, Trump could at least point to this as evidence of his prowess as an international businessman.

Indeed, Trump has made exactly such an effort. In a Scottish newspaper, he recently wrote an op-ed with a headline that read, “How Scotland will help me become president.” In the piece, the Republican candidate wrote, “When I first arrived on the scene in Aberdeen, the people of Scotland were testing me to see just how serious I was – just like the citizens in the United States have done about my race for the White House…. I had to win them over – I had to convince them that I meant business and that I had their best interests in mind. Well, Scotland has already been won – and so will the United States.”

The problem, as the Washington Post reported yesterday, is that the entire venture has been a bit of a disaster...

To many people in Scotland, his course here has been a failure. Over the past decade, Trump has battled with homeowners, elbowed his way through the planning process, shattered relationships with elected leaders and sued the Scottish government. On top of that, he has yet to fulfill the lofty promises he made.

Trump has also reported to Scottish authorities that he lost millions of dollars on the project – even as he claims on U.S. presidential disclosure forms that the course has been highly profitable.


In early May, Trump, in an entirely serious way, pointed to his role in the Miss Universe beauty pageant as evidence of his international experience. Unfortunately for the GOP candidate, his Scottish golf course is his other piece of evidence, and it’s a failure.

The replies to Trump's Brexit response tweet are hilarious, especially when you imagine them being said with a really thick Scottish accent.

A sampling...

i can be a little dense sometimes so can someone help me out?

trump said that his new course has been open a few weeks and had been booked from dawn to dusk every day.
i for get what a round of golf there costs......lets say it was 250 pounds
trump also said more people would come because now it will be cheaper because the pound dropped in value.
if the course is booked for all available hours already
and the value of the pound dropped

how does this make more money for trump?

He loses a little on each round but he makes it up on volume.

Makes perfect sense to Trump though.

If everyone who is pissed off in this country donated $1 dollar to Trump's campaign, he would have enough campaign funds. Those who can do more, should. We have 320 million people in the US, how many of those are poor, dis-enfranchised, individually they can do nothing, but as a group, they do have power.

What a waste of a $1.

Would prefer to put a dollar into a street musician's guitar case any day than to give to Trump.

If I fell into that category, Trump would be the last person who would get my dollar. Besides, he claims he has billions. Why would he need money from anyone? He wouldn't lie about his wealth and success, would he?

At least, unlike Hillary Clinton, he doesn't take campaign contributions from foreign governments that support Islamic Extremist Terrorism and enslave women.

Hillary has to the tune of tens of millions of dollars.
Not so amazingly, many of those foreign governments got U.S. weapons deals approved by Hillary Clinton's State Department.

That may be true if you don't count profits from business operations as contributions. Then again, it may not be true either way. How would you know?

The source data comes from the Clinton Foundation's financial reporting after they re-re-re filed after being caught falsifying the first two reports.
