Maybe. Maybe not. Either way you’ll never know.

Not broadcasting every thought isn’t the same as not having a strategy.


You're joking, right?...Uh, evidently, you're unfamiliar with Twitter. Look it up, it's all the rage.

Well you know, all day for several days posting of unedited content that precludes any other dialogue, while elsewhere expressing contempt for the moderators as a whole might bring that on.

Part of the regressive infantilism of our increased quality of life. Marx would describe as the difference between alienated freedom and slavery. The Frankfurt School, adding Freud to the mix, called it repressive desublimation.

Twitter is a cesspool. When he starts tweeting before he sends Pompeo to NK you be sure to let me know ‘cause I don’t hangout that much over there.

Here's a strategy ... and just like protecting and healing the environment ... every US citizen can do his part.

1. Do a MF thorough "uninstall" of the Manifest Destiny browser ... and encourage all government, all parties, all groups to do so. Because of it ... your country has brought grief and death to a lot of people.
2. If you do # 1 ... there's decent chance you'll become a better team player in this world and the world will survive ... longer.
3. If you don't do # 1 ... you WILL blow up this **** world.

I'm an excellent team player in this world. Have been for decades. Ask my European friends. How about you?

Manifest Destiny, like most D ideals, contemptible.

What are you, 9 years old? Study some 20th Century history FFS.

Well I won't. Maybe it needs to be blown up. America anyways. See how you guys get on after. Best of luck, eh?

Well ... yeah ... you're spot on for that recommendation.

From Cuba, PI, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Middle East ( to name a few) where hasn't the US been scorching people during the twentieth century? Is history repeating itself in the 21st century?

And you, ScottSoCal ... can help stop this ****. Why is your country spending all its money on that ****?

Ronan Farrow, son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen (or possibly Frank Sinatra?) just won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting of Harvey Weinstein. I hadn’t realized he went to college at age 11, and Yale Law at age 16! He must be extremely bright, and though I don’t mean to diss journalists, lawyers or people who work in the government (as he has), I’m surprised someone with apparently a very high IQ wouldn’t end up as a scientist or academic.

Then again, having a high IQ is no guarantee of success. You can spend your whole life lost in your thoughts, without actually accomplishing something practical, as Farrow has done (he's also the author of a book, War on Peace). Case in point: Christopher Langan, who reportedly has the highest known IQ of around 200. Last I heard, he was trying to prove the existence of God, good luck with that.

I suppose such a high IQ could invite, in some circumstances, a phenomenon akin to cultural lag.

The President, ensconced at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, spent Saturday and Sunday on Twitter venting at the FBI director he fired, and torching both The New York Times and his own estranged attorney general. He poured praise on his lawyer Michael Cohen amid speculation he could flip on his top client after an FBI raid on his offices carried off some of the closest-held secrets of the Trump Organization and the President's own past.
The President also lashed out at an unidentified "drunk/drugged up loser" as he fulminated about his legal situation and, out of nowhere, when most Americans were enjoying their Sunday afternoon, tweeted, "A total witch hunt!"


Cementing that contrast, four of the five living ex-presidents, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, gathered in Texas at the funeral of former first lady Barbara Bush on Saturday.
The latest, and somber, meeting of the President's Club, the most exclusive political conclave in the world, seemed like a throwback to an earlier era of civility where former political foes buried differences in recognition of their common experience that seems out of step in the age of Trump.


What a class act, trump the dummy. He couldn't have waited until the funeral was over to twitter-rant, again, and again?

A quiz for the two above, not you, between Dubya and President Obama, who signed the most anti-gun/Gun control measures into law?

Hint, it wasn't the Kenyan Muslim.

You’re right. Speaking in favor of protecting a constitutional guarantee = whoring out family values.

Conservative women are fair game I guess.

Huh. Seems like just yesterday W was being portrayed as essentially a war criminal and the guy who wrecked our economy. Obama never ever failed to let us all know. Now their friends.

Sounds legit.

Maybe they have always been friends. Part of the swamp I suppose.

So is the US unique, when considering the Countries/regions above, in the scorching of people? Cuba, Japan... really?

I can help stop this? Something to ponder. I’m in Cali. Unless I vote for a Democrat my vote doesn’t count. So let’s say I voted for Hillary. You know she’s a war monger, right? You know the left has all but declared war on Russia at this stage (over the same electioneering we engage in). As far as scorching people go I think the world is far better off with Trump calling the shots.

I’m an already excellent example to my bruthas and sistahs.

Obama always wanted in on the elite action.

We do live in interesting times when Knuckle is honoring the woman who gave us W and Jeb and kept the home fires burning for Poppy, while liberal Lance haters are overlooking Betsy’s devout creationism as a sign of a logical mind.
