What rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches towards Washington 

This one:


There will be some schadenfreude, of course, as the slack-jawed fools who voted for Trump realize what they have wrought. But, by then, the missiles should be arcing overhead, and the church pews will all be full, too late.

    This is a really good article on the subject, which should give us all cause for concern. How do you think Trump would react, if faced with this 1980 situation?

    .. I see The Trump as a ‘shouter’ but a monied one. You know, those addled folk who shout on the sidewalk.. They cry out about Gawd – Shite – misc stream of fried circuit thought.. and that’s OK.. I truly feel for them.. without distain.. I have no doubt this is not who they wished to be

    But The Trump is a stunning variation on this malady.. he has vague traces of social civility or ‘manners’ remaining, his bank account seems pretty full.. but I keep seeing an ethicless downscale dirtbag – but rich version of Chauncey Gardener ascending the political throne of the US of A.. and we is ‘being there’d ..’

    Sorry, Gord. Using Breitbart and Gaffney hardly bolsters your case. Breitbart is not a real news outlet and Gaffney is Islamophobic to the point of insanity. I just hope you and your fellow extreme right zealots are prepared to own it when the excrement hits the rotating air movement device. Sadly, we rational folk are going to be caught up in the spray as well.

      So apart from vehemently disagreeing with Gord’s position by slagging him, what actual points do you have to counter Gaffney’s assessments? How should ‘The West’ respond to “…Russia’s current nuclear modernization program…” and “….the finishing touches on a wholesale replacement of his (Putin’s) arsenal with advanced missiles, submarines, and bombers”. How should the US respond to “….state-of-the-art hypersonic and maneuvering warheads explicitly designed to defeat U.S. missile defenses….” or the “….high-speed, unmanned underwater drone said to pack a doomsday 100-megaton nuclear weapon”? Complain that it’s from Brietbart but what about the issues raised?

      • The Doctor says:

        So if Putin is such a menace, as Gaffney argues, why does Trump spend so much time with his tongue up Putin’s butt, arguing that NATO is obsolete, opposing sanctions in response to Putin’s aggression in Ukraine etc.?

    1- If you really believe a 70 year old version of Foghorn Leghorn is going to live in the White House and work 12 to 16 hour days playing the part of President you’re crazy.
    2- If there are wars they won’t be between countries but between California, New York and Michigan and a lot of cities who have told Trump to go fuck himself if he tries to circumvent sanctuary laws by withdrawing fed funds to those jurisdictions.
    3- I don’t for a minute believe Trump will last a year much less four.

    scratch Foghorn Leghorn. Trump is the personification of Yosemite Sam:) To trump anyone who disagrees with him is a “varmint” ergo
