    Gosh, I really don't know.  But it would be cool if Vermin Love Supreme would run again.  Imagine a president named President Vermin Love Supreme!

    He will always be, "Rents Too Damn High Guy," to me. But I'll mull it over, do some searching, see what I can come up with. Gotta see if he's on the ballot anywhere though.

    Genius he might be but stable he def is not and needs therapy and should stay away from subjects he knows nothing about! He’s comments on slavery are pathetic and proves he knows nothing of his own race struggles!

    He did some good things....he's also done some really awful things.  Not a genius in my book.

    Again I am not trying to hammer this home but he is mental ill !!!!

    I have no skin in the game , liked a couple of his songs back in the day but he should be hospitalized , however when someone famous is mental ill we hop all over it.

    Yes he said some very dumb things and of course they are gross to hear but if this was anyone else who was not famous and was in a mental facility and somehow leaked footage of them came out saying the things he is saying we would I hope just feel sad for that person.

    It can feel fun to tear people down sometimes , again I am hopeful he will get the help , meds and possible in patient treatment he needs before he does harm to himself.

    What is a genius?  Borderline insane.

    Kanye or Ye if you may, is a genius.

    But like I said earlier no no no no no on him for pres-ye-dent.

    In terms of pushing the art of music forward, he was a genius. He is wickedly talented. Or was. IDK. But the dude was at the top of the game for a very long period. Longer than most artists get to the top of their craft.

    But can we stop saying things like nuts, crazy, insane? they come across as pretty pejorative when he's known to have mental health issues. I get that they are describing what he has in a slang sort of way, but if we want people to take better care of themselves or seek help for mental issues (not just Kanye, but anyone), lets try not throw stuff like that around and create a stigma.

    Being flippant about mental health. 

    The flippancy leads people to believe that their issues won't be taken seriously if they aren't seen in day to day life as serious. By using words like nuts, crazy, whatever , it devalues the issue. 


    Also, I meant in general not just in regard to ye.

    Mental health issues and artistic genius often go hand-in-hand.  I don't follow closely enough to have a clue about his musical genius, but lots of the best have mental health struggles.

    I can't imagine anyone in their right mind thinking he'd make a good president, though that's a different topic.

    Having dealt with anxiety and depression for several years, I'm certainly not one to criticize people with mental health issues.  And Jimi Hendrix clued me a long, long time ago about the fact that very creative people can have and even talk about their own mental health (the song "Manic Depression" being the most obvious clue).  I think a person could even become a president and yet have mental health issues.  But at that level of responsibility,  it becomes essential to have good coping skills so that personal issues don't impede one's ability to do the job well.  We've already had enough problems with that.

    A Well-Connected GOP Strategist Is Helping Kanye West Get on the Ballot in Wisconsin

    Lane Ruhland filed West’s filing paperwork and signatures on Tuesday. She’s also representing President Donald Trump in court.

    Kanye West has officially submitted signatures to appear on the ballot in Wisconsin, arguably the most important state on the presidential map — and those signatures were dropped off by an experienced GOP operative with ties to President Trump’s campaign.

    I don't like cheating.  But this ain't cheating.  It's exploiting how awful our electoral system is. Of course Trumpies want him on there and of course the rest of us don't.  It's a reflection on how silly and arbitrary the EC really is.

    I'd like the Wisconsin Dems and whoever puts out ads to spend a bit of effort on showing Kanye with his MAGA hat, etc.

    I see his VP is a “biblical life coach”.

    And, his “campaign” people were caught submitting forged signatures on ballot petitions in New Jersey.

    This whole thing reeks of something out of the Roger Stone playbook.

    I know nothing about the forged signatures, but if accurate... yeah, that's cheating.

    Does anyone really think he has a grand vision for Murica or a pandemic response? Does he have a platform? Link? Would love to see what he’s offering up. And with Sleepy Woke Joe so sleepy, I could switch my vote. Depending.

    I think you are giving people too much credit in how/why they vote. Trust me, I’m from Minnesota. Jesse Ventura was our governor. All that is needed is 30k to vote Yeezy in Wisconsin, which is very doable, and Cheetolini wins the state.
