As Tubularsock has mentioned before, Donald Trump is the symptom as well as the result of an America that has fallen off the tracks.


Any country that spends its time at war and not at peace is a sick country.


Americans have been willingly led down the primrose path by leaders that really don’t have the general interest of the “people” at heart.


EVERYTHING has been corporatized and that is epitomized by Citizens United!


The very first give away is when something is entitled with the term “Citizens” …… yes, a dead give away!

That ALWAYS means that a real citizen isn’t within a thousand mile radius of the pronouncement.


Now, of course here is a Tubularsock aside: Have you ever wondered what would happen if the poor would form a Corporation?


They could infinitely expand their lifestyle incomes with golden parachutes and fly first class all with smiling politicians bending over backwards with shit eating grins handing out new installments of corporate welfare checks WITHOUT the stigma of getting a hand out from the government!



Rather cool, RIGHT? Or LEFT …….. is there a real difference anymore? Not that Tubularsock has noticed.


Well shit! Another Tubularsock aside! (Can Tubularsock EVER stay on topic?)


Have you noticed that the RIGHT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “left-thinking”, whatever that is, and the LEFT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “right-thinking”, whatever that is?


But at the same time the power structure continues its agenda, whatever that is, to the point that if you really stop and look at it ………. something is being directed here without our consent.


For example, every time a poll is taken of the general public’s view about the U.S. going to war a resounding number of American citizens say NO TO WAR!


Yet ………. we have been at war THAT WE HAVE CAUSED for the last fifty plus years!


Oh sure, it’s called another name. You know, like a “Police Action”. That was what the Korean War was called AND IT’S NOT OVER YET!


And we always start the wars by propagandizing the citizens with, ….. “THEY attacked us” ….. as in a Vietnamese Gunboat attacked on an American ship in the Gulf of Tonkin. Then off we go blowing the hell out of Vietnam burning to death hundreds of thousands men, women, and children to SAVE AMERICA!


Only to discover that that incident in the Gulf of Tonkin NEVER HAPPENED!


So much for the “FREE PRESS”! Bull shit in, bull shit out!


And NOW those dangerous Vietnamese that threatened America then are now being sold armaments from our military-industrial-complex! God-Fucking-Bless-America!


Or Afghanistan …… why did we attack Afghanistan?


Oh yeah, Tubularsock remembers now, …….. to get bin Laden. And for what? There is still no proof that bin Laden planned 9/11. And before being attacked the Afghan Government said they’d turn bin Laden over to the U.S. if PROOF was provided that bin Laden was guilty.


But it was easier to bomb them than provide PROOF so seventeen years and still no proof, just continuous war.

And it’s good to remember:







Oh but the American population has forgotten Afghanistan because it’s now Syria ad nauseam. And Syria has DONE NOTHING to the U.S.! Oh well.


And don’t even get into Africa ……….. we are destabilizing Africa BIGLY but most Americans don’t even know we are there with our military.


And the Imbecile In Chief still thinks Africa is a “Bigly” country!


Which brings us back to Citizens United.


Money = votes and those with the most money = control. That is NOT democracy that is plutocracy and that is what Citizens United has created!


If a corporation is a person then ipso facto a person is a corporation! So just maybe the citizens may want to shift their status.


And hell, it’s cheaper than a sex change!

Apparently Europeans are closer in getting first hand information on second hand news than Americans. That's why almost all my friends and working mates share your POV too.
Flying Junior Added Sep 20, 2018 - 5:00am
remember the first time I ever heard the term, "Police action."  It was from a very honorable man.  He had a tender heart and was not without romance.
He was an associate pastor who felt called upon to explain to the congregation just why he enlisted to serve in Viet Nam instead of choose to stay Stateside and marry his true love from the old Christian music band.
He called it a police action.  I'm like, what?!?  Team America World Police?  But apparently it is a thing.
I like to think that there was a period of relative peace between 1975 and 2001.  But I understand that Reagan was supporting paramilitary operations in South America to prop up dictatorships in the name of fighting communism.  Of course I was aware of Bush 41 and his Operation Desert Shield.  At the time I had no way of knowing if the premise for the war, an Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, was factual.  But the great unleasher of Chiang-Kai-Shek seemed to have the good sense to limit the, "police action," without toppling the president of Iraq.
Similarly I was made to believe that Clinton's actions in the NATO-led response to the War in Kosovo were justified on humanitarian grounds because of ethnic cleansing and persecution by Milosevich.  Only my anti-war mother made me question these beliefs.
I guess my point is that the hippies carried the day with beloved republican saint, Gerald Ford.  And the anti-war contingent had captured the hearts and minds of vital U.S. citizens.  The war hawks had been shamed by their senseless war in Viet Nam basically into submission.  It took a full twenty-five years before the war pigs got a firm footing again.
I feel so bad for the children of this century who have known nothing but U.S. intervention and aggression.  There is no pride in our international status save the faulty pride of misused and abused military strength.

Yes, I do that alot. That was actually kidding all those that love it when he gives Pentagon pay boost and drops big bombs, like the democrats and republicans. Like our Congress. He has flip flopped so often on this that it must be part of his Art of the Deal. He was indeed throwing a cracker to his base- those silly antiwar nerds.  I think it is just a fake and he will continue his neocon plans. Although it appears that maybe Israel, France, and certainly the US'  recent little games  in Syria may be backfiring. We may actually end up with a no fly zone there, but not the one we wanted.   Its quite possible also Israel attacked to provoke Russian to drag Trump away from exiting and back into the moral highground of saving people from Assads chemical weapons attacks. 
As for Fuck Donald Trump, I could say Fuck Nancy Pelosi  but i wont.
Part of the reason that I am on WB is to try to converse in a more adult way. If  this is so important as the video seems to think, lets see if they can come up with something stronger than Fuck Donald Trump, because  if they cant, I suspect we are in for a long ride in the ERA of Trump. Now, as for Trump's tax returns, that may be another story.

What $21 trillion?  It is imaginary.  Generated out of never-never-land and to never-never-land it will return, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.  
No matter how fast they churn the stocks and refinance the debts, the black hole continues to grow, until Washington and Wall Street get sucked into oblivion.
