Yep. Trump is just as warlike and corporate as Obama was.

Is that what you are referring to?


We're living in an obscured single-party state. Republicans criticize Hillary over wars & encourage other wars. I just want any random hippie for prez.

How about patchouli intensity? Skill with beads? VW repair ability? Shamanic humility? Least possessions? Festival wristband count?

I wouldn't trust him and his power-hungry money-grubbing minions any further than I could throw a grand piano.

My mom and I have started a game/running joke about people or characters on television. We're always saying "Can they be president?"
For instance I've started watching Puss In Boots series on Netflix and he can be very dense and even cocky but it sure would be great if he was real and was president instead.

Speaking of cocky Kanye would even be better. Heck just nominate a rock. It would do a better job..at least it can't mess anything up.

a stopped analog clock would be better in that at least in theory it would be "correct" 2 times per day, which outperforms the correctness of the present POTUS.

OMG!! TRUMP IS A PSYCHO MADMAN WITH A NUCLEAR BUTTON AND HE WILL DESTROY THE PLANET!! ! ! ! !

Or maybe he won't:

Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong-un to meet 'as soon as possible'

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has invited Donald Trump to meet him, an unprecedented overture which the US leader has said he will accept.

The shock announcement was made by senior South Korean officials in Washington, who passed on a letter from the North Korean leader.

They said Mr Kim had also agreed to halt nuclear and missile tests and was "committed to denuclearisation".

It appears to be a major breakthrough after months of threats and violence.

However analysts warn that such summits are usually the result of years of careful diplomacy so remain sceptical about what these rapidly arranged talks can achieve.

Mr Trump said the development was "great progress" but that sanctions will remain in place until a firm agreement is reached.

North Korea has not yet issued any official comment on the week's developments.

South Korean National security adviser Chung Eui-yong, speaking outside the White House after the meeting, said: "I told President Trump that at our meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he's committed to denuclearisation."

He added: "President Trump appreciated the briefing, and said he would meet Kim Jong-un by May to achieve permanent denuclearisation."


I didn't check the history, but these may be the highest-level peace talks since the Korean armistice more than 70 years ago.

I find it a little suspicious that Trump and his predecessors have allowed the comparatively weak North Korea to remain independent for as long as they have.

If North Korea attacks another nation it will be because Trump let them. Trump will then pretend to be outraged.

Maybe Trump thinks he can't get public support for a war against North Korea unless they attack first so he will intentionally allow them to attack when he could have prevented it easily.

The U.S. right wing is all about profiting from war, not so much preventing it.
