Default Trumpstock Houston Tomorrow!

People already lined up. 100,000 tickets reserved. This could be the largest tailgate/street party Houston has ever seen.....bigger than the Superbowl!

Feeling pretty confident I'm going to have to duck out of work early tomorrow and make the pilgrimage. Anybody else going?

I thought about trying to go, but being a work night just makes it tough and I certainly already know Iím voting for Cruz.

Its 4 blocks From where my wife and I work (we work in buildings near each other with daycare split in between our offices), the road closures are going to be nuts, we will probably skip out of work early in attempt to get home in a reasonable amount of time.

I suspect this will be something you will tell your children about, an "I was there" moment, kind of like this one:

Just passed the HFD Mass Casualty Response unit...traffic is actually pretty light given all the closures.

That crowd may want to hang around and head to the border, may need their help.

Of more pressing concern is Beto (the socialist Irishman with multiple arrests challenging Cruz) is here in Houston as well for kicking off early voting (for the dead, brain dead, and illegals) thereís a good chance his zombie chronies may find their way to the Toyota Center as well to make a scene.

I look forward to the news reports of zero violence and zero incidents. It will prove the point that liberals are the problem.

Prove to whom exactly? How do you see this playing out - The opposing side will watch this 'zero violence zero incident' rally and have some sort of revelation such as; Boy. We really act like fools. We should behave better!



Then what? The MSM will pick up on this good behavior and reconsider their liberal bias reporting? Is that how you see this developing?

The thread title is funny anyway.
Sometimes you have to wait months to use one as funny as Trumpstock.

Mostly fodder for forum debate. A Fox talking point. Something for CNN to lie about. You know, the usual, but with a better example.

Trumpstock song

Well, I came upon a line so long
It was long as a country road
And I asked them, Tell me, where are you going
and they told me
Said, we're going down to Houston town
Join the crowd , see a hell of a man
Got to give back to the land and get my vote free
We are stardust, we are golden
We are billion year old carbon
And we got to get our country back from the darn Dems

The fact of the matter is, the left has left the rails. There was a time when being liberal wasnít necessarily a *bad* thing so to speak. We probably needed some social change. (Think Gay rights, womenís rights, the elimination of racism) Unfortunately somewhere along the way, the left took their victory and just kept rolling. Now, we have unhinged lunatics wearing ***** hats.

I had a job that I hoped would finish early, but didn't so I just had time to shower and drive to the closest park-n-ride. I ended up having a returning to downtown bus all to myself, the driver was great, dropped me underneath 59, I only had to walk a few blocks, and got there in time to see Trump's campaign manager, Parscales as well as Cruz and Trump speak on one of the several jumbotrons set up outside.

It was a fun crowd. Saw HPD chief Acevedo all dressed up in his street cop outfit. They had the protesters well away from everyone else. They had the baby Trump inflatable, and bless their hearts, they were screaming and chanting for as long as I could hear them walking by.

RSBN Live stream passed 50,000 before Trump took the stage, various Youtube feeds were in the six figures combined, Toyota Center was packed with more people outside.

2016 levels of high energy.

Meanwhile Obama spoke in a caerfully crafted setting to hide his pathetic "crowd" while he pathetically tried to take credit for Trumpnomics.

We watched it on OANN last night. Even Fox News covered this one. They haven't carried many in the last month or so.
