  • The turn of a nation

    Your president is such a rediculous Wurst, what an embarassment. The USA have been such a well respected place and have turned to this rediculous joke. It is such a shame. Retreating from the world stage is one thing, blowing yourself up without any need is something else entirely.

    I really would love to pay you respect for bold leadership decisions or emotional gestures, for acts of gratitude, for anything smart. Its impossible at these times. You have such a joke of a government, no one respects it, no one.

    One stupidity after the other, all to pamper one dumb orange clown and his mobster family of imbeciles. It truely is unbelievable.

    1,800,000 americans infected, 40,000,000 people out of jobs!!! No US government has ever been as uprepared as this one. Wow.
    And just put the number, the outragous number of 100,000 dead americans in context. This is no joke anymore.

    Your president is a fat orange parasite that sucks you people dead, cant you see that? He does nothing, not a thing. I wouldnt have thought he could shock me with anything really, but hiding in a bunker while people start rioting in the streets... cmon.

    Stop this cancer.

    Trump is doing nothing to bring the nation together and stop the mindless violence being perpetrated in the nation's cities. He doesn't know or understand the first thing about leadership. He is adding to the problem with his tweets about 'vicious dogs' and 'ominous weapons.' How does that help the situation. And apparently, 60 secret service have been injured outside the White House grounds.

    In cities across America on Sunday, people awoke to see shattered glass, charred vehicles, bruised bodies and graffiti-tagged buildings. Demonstrators gathered again in peaceful daytime protest of racial injustice. By evening, thousands had converged again in front of the White House, where people had rioted and set fires the night before.

    President Trump stayed safely ensconced inside and had nothing to say, besides tweeting fuel on the fire.

    Never in the 1,227 days of Trump’s presidency has the nation seemed to cry out for leadership as it did Sunday, yet Trump made no attempt to provide it.

    That was by design. Trump and some of his advisers calculated that he should not speak to the nation because he had nothing new to say and had no tangible policy or action to announce yet, according to a senior administration official. Evidently not feeling an urgent motivation Sunday to try to bring people together, he stayed silent.

    Trump let his tweets speak for themselves. One attacked the Democratic mayor of Minneapolis; another announced that his administration would designate the antifa movement a terrorist organization; a third accused the media of fomenting hatred and anarchy; and in yet another, he praised himself for the deployment of the National Guard and denigrated former vice president Joe Biden.

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

      Talking about something else he cannot do legally or otherwise...bluster and demagoguery designed to appeal only to his base.

      President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday that the U.S. government would be “designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.”

      There were just two problems with that. First, he doesn’t appear to have the legal authority to do so. And second, it’s by no means clear the loosely defined group of radical activists is an organization at all.

          If Hildebeast had been elected - it would be 1,000,000 dead...

          Socialist EU: over 160,000 dead from coronavirus.
          At least that's better than Hidebeast.

              Socialist EU? Do you know and understand what socialism in a European context actually is?

                People still don't get it. The difference between Obama and Trump comes down to form over function. It's the difference between a parade ground officer who is smartly attentive to appearances but worthless in combat and a crude, rude, sergeant who is promoted during combat.

                  Could start here;

                  Number of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) deaths worldwide as of May 29, 2020, by country
                  https://www.statista.com/statistics/...de-by-country/


                  Where my tally, includes Turkey, stopped at Croatia (102) equals =

                  175,629

                  Add in the rest lower on the list and those from 29th to today and likely getting closer to 176,000 +/-

                  There may be some variables, depending on how each nation measures such and if they include causes that could be the result of COVID-19 such as pneumonia, etc.

                  Then there is the case of PRChina, where the disease started and had from 8-10 weeks to spread before that nation informed the world and started to something, after their New Year's celebration letting hundreds of thousands (to maybe millions) travel in and out of Wuhan and the country, helping to spread this disease globally.

                  Of course, the PCers will say we can't blame PRChina for this ...

                  Which is why, for a nation with a population of @ 1,439,323,776; https://www.worldometers.info/world-...na-population/ ... it's a bit hard to believe their claim of only @4,634 deaths.

                    Or maybe snake oil salesman versus used car lot owner.

                    Now Hillary R. C. on the other hand would be a "House" owner of certain ages-old services "business"

                      Well ...

                      Back about 1917 there was that International Socialism that started with a government overthrow, floundered about for several decades and sort of withered away by the start of this century, ... Ivan

                      Then around 1933 there was the Nationalist Socialism (& D. Workers Party) in an European nation where their 33% seats in Parliament allowed their man to be national leader to run the Nation, which sort of ran aground by 1945 ... 'Fritz'

                      Admittedly, more recent versions are a bit more subtle and subdued, but still boils down to varied flavors of the same fruit, say all apples with red skins so sort of like comparing Delicious to Fuji to Macintosh ... etc.

                      And as these standard definitions show, slight semantic differences ...

                      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialism

                      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communism

                      So far history would suggest that socialism(any flavor) is another step down the negative slope from Free Enterprise/Liberty towards Communism. = Regression backward to more State("King") ownership of everything and everyone.

                          Coming from a nation that started two world wars and created the Holocaust, your remarks fall on deaf ears. No one cares anymore what Germany thinks. You can't even properly manage a nation smaller than some of our states, and you have never hesitated to accept our aid or our protection after your futile attempts to rule the world. I personally spent many years of my life protecting you from your enemies while you reviled us at every turn during the Cold War.

                          Best you stick to what you know and leave the real world to us.

                            Well, within the limits of the Executive Branch powers and authorities, he has mostly. Still one needs to work with Congress and there only so much going maverick with "a phone and a pen" () that a POTUS can do. Unfortunately, he was sort of "blackmailed" into signing off under duress on that last wreckage of a Federal Budget - 'We can't have the Guv'mint shut down'

                            Now as for "used car salesman(person)", then one at the Nissan dealership we dealt with a few years ago did come close to it. But could be an exception.
