He'll probably say that Putin told him it wasn't true ... and that, ya know, why would an ex-KGB autocrat lie?

Gotcha. Must ponder ...

Good talk, making me think.

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

I think if people are going to vote Democrat, they should demand more of the party. Agreed. Definitely! But carefully and with political street smarts. The Reps have succeeded largely because they are a hive-mind monolithic block; Rep Congresspeople who don't play by the rules get axed, political c...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

A delusional orange guy with a strong feelbad factor, or a delusional brown guy with a blissed out feelgood factor. Neither thanks. Its the 'delusional' that is the common factor. I'll take a delusional brown blisser any day over a delusion orange rager. Not that I think Mooji is delusional, but br...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

JD et al, It might be as Chomsky says that America is effectively a one-party system now: centrist Republicans (i.e. Democrats) and extreme-right-wing loonie Republicans (i.e. the Republican party, pretty much). And it might be as JD says that the truly "progressive" move is not to support the Dems ...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

Time to wheel in the psychiatrists, surely. Isn't it the obvious way to get rid of him? No need to find evidence of criminal behaviour, just that he has become mentally incapable of performing the role and need to retire. Now. Ain't got a chance of working. He'd just yell Fake News! Conspiracy! Lef...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

I feel like you're not getting the main point of the article. The article argues (and I agree) that part of the reason we have the present situation is precisely because we've continued to say "ah well, I gotta choose this awful candidate because the other guy is worse". What's the *realistic* alte...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

I’m with you KRB80, I think good will come (is already coming) out of this mess. But if it is allowed (by Reps) to go too far, America might fall so far that is very difficult, if even possible, to come back from. Trump and the Reps might just succeed in breaking America and the world for a generati...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

Yes, the Dems are flawed. But the flawed-ness of Trump and the Reps is of a whole different order of magnitude. If a morally/ethically responsible person were to have to choose between Trump/Reps and Dems ... which is the only realistic choice out there right now, Bernies have no chance to ascend to...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

I honestly think that if Trump moved towards a formal policy of Russia as ally and Europe as enemy, 75% of Republicans and perhaps 90% of Trump’s base would cheer him on. America’s gone mad ... too much entertainment and tv/movie/vgame fantasy, not enough reality. This is how a republic ends, not w...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

I'm (WAY) only kidding!

Trump would probably accuse Mooji of being an anti-"Make America Great Again!" terrorista with direct ties to Satan. And his cheerleaders would (pretend to) believe him!

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

In psychonational terms ... America's shadow is coming to light under Donnie. This could be a good thing, there is a huge amount of creative energy in the shadow. Destructive too. Getting in touch with one's shadow is never easy, so we shouldn't expect that. And it's dangerous, for obvious reasons. ...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

I don't know them, I'm doing my best to avoid all contact with Trumpiana.

But for my/our edification, what are some ditties about Trump's family tree that would help me contextualize him, understand his thoughts/actions?

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

I got a big kick out of reading earlier this week that European leaders were treating Trump like a way-out-of-his-depth petulant spoiled little boy.

Hey, Caligula had Incitatus, we have Trump. (Personally, I'd be happier if a good strong horse were leading the country.)
