The Donald Dogs the Wag

"If Americans anywhere are threatened we have all those targets fully identified, and I am ready and prepared to take whatever action is necessary."
So said Corporal Bone-Spurs
Idiot Nation
Late yesterday morning when I received the news of the assassination Trump ordered of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, my thoughts immediately flashed to the only-son of a friend of mine of almost fifty years. He entered military service on his eighteenth birthday a number of years ago, and I needed to know if he was still serving. Trying to sound as nonchalant as is humanly possible, I inquired of him,  "Hi, Danny. Where are you these days?" When he informed me that his term-of-duty expired in October, and that he was living in Wisconsin, and was about to relocate to Florida to live with Dear-old-Dad, I replied: "I'm quite relieved to hear this. The president has gone mad. It's not a good time to be in the service. This is going to end badly. Send your dad my best."
"I will", said he. Nice kid.

I have a strong suspicion that Donald Trump is not particularly good at the game of chess. Chess requires the ability to predict what might happen several moves in the future - a talent that Trump obviously lacks. In the year 2011, the current First Fool predicted that then-president Barack Obama would invade the nation of Iran in order to ensure his reelection the following year. He called the imagined future invasion "pathetic" - and it certainly would have been quite pathetic indeed had it happened. It didn't. Instead, in 2015, the Obama administration worked out a series of deals with the Iranians that effectively put their nuclear ambitions on the back burner. Almost as soon as he took office, our esteemed Common-Pervert-In-Chief destroyed the entire deal.

Wasn't sending this hideous psychopath to the White House a jolly good idea? Idiot Nation.

What this unhinged jackass unleashed upon the world yesterday could very well be the spark that ignites a firestorm that might lead to the war that humanity has been fearing for several generations - THE BIG THIRD ONE. We should never have gone in this direction. A-thousand-or-more commentators (this one included) accurately predicted in 2016 that sending this fucking moron to the Executive Mansion would incur a series of self-inflicted disasters that would be felt for generations. My generation was bequeathed the most functional, prosperous nation in the history of humanity. And what are our heirs inheriting from us? An ideological shit-hole. These are the weirdest of times. They really are!
Here's my handy suggestion:
All of the Democratic candidates in the 2020 primaries should sign a joint-letter, letting the people of the planet know that what is happening to this once-great nation is (in the words of Charlie Chaplin) "the passing of greed; the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress", and that, no matter which Democrat wins the election on November 3, 2020, this era of human stupidity and absurdity shall come to an abrupt and permanent end. I never believed - for a minute - that the day would come when I would look back upon the era of a half-witted frat boy like George W. Bush with a feeling of teary-eyed nostalgia. We sure do live in a strange era.

Strange days indeed. Most peculiar, Mama - Whoa!

Are you as pissed as I am that Trump didn't consult with Congress like Obama did every time he killed a terrorist with a drone?

Trump owns this one, every dollar spent, every body maimed and every person killed is his fault. This war mongering fool should be dragged out of the White House and arrested for putting not only the U.S. in danger but the whole world.

We cannot afford another long drawn out war, Trump is putting us on the path to financial collapse beside the bad karma of killing even more people all over the world for no good reason.
Trump is a bigger disaster than I thought he would be, another four years of him and the U.S. is doomed.
