I’m surprised no one has brought this up.  This is a pretty big deal.  It looks like Iran is poking the bear to draw that entire region into a war. 

Not sure where this will end.  Saudi Arabia needs to deal with this themselves but will want the US to handle it for them.  All I know is the 911 Hijackers were mainly Saudi Arabians and they can deal with this themselves.

Iran may find themselves with more sanctions from the international community. This has an impact on everyone. I don’t think we should be directly involved. As you said, the Saudis can handle it. We may help them in planning or support in some way.

The Saudis are our buddies remember? We have to go to war on their behalf. How else will the Kushners get money to do sham real estate deals and rip off taxpayers. I mean why else do you look the other way as they murder journalists…you know the enemy of the people.

So weird the Iranians are acting up doing exactly what a cat does when it is backed into a corner. If only there was a deal in place that hemmed them in and gave them a path to being a member of the international community again.

We truly have morons and crooks at the controls.

So, was this a serious post or just joking?  There has been some question lately.

Note:  That was a joke

Serious joke. Serious in the damage being done by people who are jokes and will be gone soon to be laughed at through history as the most corrupt and inept crowd of morons ever put into power by a minority of voters.

Unfortunately not before they do serious damage that others will have to pay for, some with their lives. Of course never any of their kids though…

It’s only going to get worse.  These younger kids know more about pop culture than the real world and we will see more celebrities, youtube stars that know know far less than Trump getting elected to office and that’s what’s really scary.

The world will endure Trump, but what comes after him is what should scare the hell out of everyone.

Say what you like about Trump, but he was the first to really understand the power of celebrity and use it to get elected.

The fact that you think the world will endure Trump means you don’t really understand what is going on around you…

The world is straining at the seams right now. Allies are at each other’s throats and authoritarianism is rising. The United States has abandoned its leadership and has aided that strain.

Literally every single Democrat running both on stage and in the background is more qualified and understands policy better than the president of the United States. That is sad and didn’t used to be true. But hey we have a celebrity! Woo hoo! I thought you conservatives hated celebrities?!? Or is it just the once that aren’t serial narcissists concerned with Obama Netflix?


As to your youth comment, blah blah. I hear that all the time from conservatives. Every generation always thinks the next one isn’t as good yet somehow the world is progressing…weird.

Study after study has shown that youth today are more educated, entrepreneurial and more accepting of others than ever before. They also are abandoning the Republican Party in greater numbers than ever before.  Good election strategy for the future.

The AOC’s of the world are telling us the planet only has a bout a decade left so what does it matter?....BTW that’s a JOKE

That’s a little melodramatic.  There was a time when it was the US and everyone else with a splash of Russia.  But the world’s not the same place as it was 10,15,20,30 years ago.  The information/communication age has definitely changed the way the works interacts with each other. 

I would be interested in hearing your definition of the kind of “leadership” you think the US should have…I might agree with you.

I can’t agree with you on thant nor will I try to change your mind.  Some are reasonable but some are so “out there” in liberal looney land that they would horrible for this nation.

It’s my opinion.  It’s cool if you don’t agree.

If you say so.  I don’t agree.

It’s fine you don’t agree, just don’t claim to be rooted in facts or the truth. Ideology and sticking to your own worldview despite all evidence to the contrary is the Republican way now.

The US has turned its back on allies, and abandoned pacts and agreements. Allies are at each other’s throats sometimes at our encouragement now!!! Russia has gone unpunished for a direct attack on America because it might make the president look bad. But hey it’s what you get when one party is a cult and they happen to be in power. Thank god for not much longer.

It is exactly why your party is shrinking, the educated, the youth and women are abandoning you and minorities never were with you.

Finally not hard to see why the Boy Scouts are failing when it is run by get off my lawn guys…
It’s sort of the reason we left and I promise you…my son and I were NOT the people the scouts need leaving.

Oh well.

If you say so..

What should we do with Russia? Attack them?

Actually, thanks to the allowing of girls into the program, there has been a spike in membership.  When I was a summer camp in July, we had 3 girl troops there and all of the kids had a great time.  We will gain quite a bit more with the loss of the LDS church with girls. 

It’s sort of the reason we left and I promise you…my son and I were NOT the people the scouts need leaving.

That’s your choice..Scouting is not for everyone like anything in life.

Oh well.

Couldn’t have said it better.

I guess that falls under the category of a “Joke”

I guess these sanctions aren’t going to be good enough for you:
