"I think it would be a good idea." Mahatma Gandhi, when asked what he thought of Western civilization.
The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it. Karl Marx.
"Well, he would, wouldn't he?" Mandy Rice-Davies, 1963, replied Ms Rice Davies when the prosecuting counsel pointed out that Lord Astor denied an affair or having even met her.
Its absolutely stunning how HRC and the Dems let a billionaire steal that issue from them in broad daylight.
And neither the HRC nor the MSM saw it coming. So they got blindsided on election day.
Within the article, there is a link to a talk that Michel Moore did. There he predicted that Trump would win in the mideast on just that issue. And very few people listened to him. Which shows us how useless the liberal blogosphere was e.g. Daily Kos, Huffpo, TPM, Cannonfire. They all helped lead us down the Yellow Brick Road to the alt/universe where the wizard won. Disgusting.
Though only 46% of Americans voted for him, and he is still unpopular in the polls, Trump actually is the most appropriate President for this country - vain, narcissistic, materialistic, immature, preoccupied with wealth, fame and success, the cult of business, physical appearances (trophy wife, trophy daughter), confusing TV images with reality, gold-plated everything, associating with celebrities...
"The business of America is business" - Calvin Coolidge.
It's an old mentality in this country. And for the masses of people who can't achieve all of that (see Scott Sandage's book Born Losers: A History of Failure in America), there is desperation and anger, and some of them turn to blaming immigrants or some other group. Or they turn on themselves with alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide.
"There is already too much truth in the world - an overproduction which apparently cannot be consumed!" - Otto Rank
"For centuries man lived in the belief that truth was slim and elusive and that once he found it the troubles of mankind would be over. And here we are in the closing decades of the 20th century, choking on truth...the mind is silent as the world spins on its age-old demonic career." - Ernest Becker
It is like I've been posting. What is most scary about Trump is the fact he is the correct outcome of a representational system of fools. He does represent the American public and is an accurate result of fools voting their will. Garbage in garbage out.
I should add, Alex Sill's article is the number one rated piece at Kennedysandking.com, and its not really close.
It is doing well on FB also. It is getting 2000 views a day total.
Its really a struck a nerve.
