We might well wind up envying those who get killed fast.

I remember quite clearly, but I think now it must have been imagination, that Clinton was being portrayed prior to the election as the one who would drag the world down into war with Russia;


Quote:
And it is Mr. Trump who says he can reverse all that, with good negotiations, if he is president.


“I think I could see myself meeting with Putin and meeting with Russia prior to the start of the administration,” he said in an interview with Michael Savage, the talk show host, this week. “I think it would be wonderful.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/21/u...ssia.html?_r=0


I am sure many people voted for Trump to avoid conflict with other countries, oh foolish them, and poor us for their foolishness may sink the world, and even if it doesn't sink the world, it will probably sink the economy of most countries.

I'm not an unequivocal fan of Richard Woolfe, but his blunt style is entirely apt in this case:

Donald Trump's North Korea 'armada' gaffe was dangerous buffoonery
Memo to the US president: it is best not to misstate the mission and location of an entire aircraft carrier group to a rogue nuclear state


I also thought that Colbert's latest offering had a high point with his joke about the Trump-inspired white supremacist. The Guardian's Late-night TV roundup has a link to the video. Worth a look, provided you've fully savoured your last chocolate cake, and have a dark sense of humour ...

I don't think anyone could have scripted this, if the whole thing had been a TV series.

This is again, from Robert Reich

Quote:
Trump is demanding that Democrats approve money to pay for his border wall or risk a government shut down. A spending bill has to be passed by midnight next Friday to keep the government funded.
“We know there are a lot of people on the Hill, especially in the Democratic Party, who don’t like the wall, but they lost the election,” said White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney.
Let me get this straight. Trump said Mexico would pay for the wall. But Mexico said it wouldn’t.
So Trump asked congressional Republicans to vote the funds to pay for the wall. But even though Republicans are in the majority, many Republicans have refused.
So now Trump is threatening Democrats that if they don’t vote to pay for his wall by midnight next Friday, he’ll let the government shut down.
Even though it’s Trump's government now.
Am I missing something here?

I think the GOP will just cave in and give him his money. They really dont have another option.
