You mention genocide, and, yes, that seems to be the plan, as the Republicans, when they manage to accomplish something, take direct aim at all who are poor or middle class, threatening health care, overall health, and economic security.  There is much talk here about terrorist attacks after this last episode in London, but I see the biggest threat to this country as trump and the Republican party.


You too, shed your hatred and be patient. Four years isn't all that long to wait for the longed for Marxism, is it?

If you believe that relax, smell the roses and shed your hatred. In four years the march of the neoMarxists will resume - assuming they can come with a better candidate than they did last time.

The old television show "Happy Days" was losing ratings after many years and tried different things to catch the viewers' attention.  Finally, they had an episode where Fonzie, in leather jacket, went water skiiing and accidentally used a great white shark as a ski ramp.  This level of silliness was taken as the real point in time where Happy Days began its slide to oblivion. From then on the term "Jumping the Shark" was taken to mean the moment in time something had lost its impact. 

 

America has jumped the shark and is sliding toward second rate status. 

  • We have turned out back on science and declared coal as our future energy source. 
  • Not true. We are committed to an integrated energy system.
  • Our word is no longer our bond.
  • Our word is our bond. Candidate Trump promised to not participate in this terrible agreement. President Trump kept his word.
  • We cannot be trusted with secret information. 
  • Well, that is true. Between the "deep government, the "Resistance" and the MSM, normal security has been a problem.
  • We cannot staff our government.
  • Being we now have for the first time just about a non-career pol as President, who is to say what "staffing" is. And, of course resistance of the "Resistance" isn't helping.
  • Our infrastructure is crumbling.
  • True, it needs work. You may recall Obama joking that those "shovel ready jobs weren't all that "shovel ready" - but the near trillion dollars did go someplace.
  • Our healthcare system is in chaos.
  • You're right. The disaster of Obamacare has created a challenging situation.
  • We appear to be colluding with the enemies of our allies. 
  • Well, "colluding" - I believe there are some investigations about that. Have you heard results. And I believe the "colluding" was before the elections - what are they "colluding" about now??
  • We no longer are willing to lead.
  • Quite the opposite. In fact that seems to be a big complaint from the left - President Trump will not yield to the globalists.

 

I, for one, will miss the prominence of American.  I weep for it.

 

Keep a happy face. Even though it is an offensive term to the left, President Trump does believe in "America First" as do I and based on your words, as do you.

Richva--,I like you, mourn the loss of status, pride, security, trust,  and honor that trump has stolen from this country.  Indeed, trump has turned this country into a pathetic sitcom, often creating situations much more far fetched than when Fonzie "jumped the shark."  I worry, not only about the immediate future of America, but her future, and, thus, the future of forthcoming generations.  It is still shocking to me that trump was ever taken seriously, and each day my shock increases as he systematically destroys America.

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

And yet a significant minority of Americans approve of what he is doing. No wonder the world is laughing.
