I forewarn anyone reading on, everything said below consists of a good bit of speculation and not necessarily the mindset or beliefs of the OP.

With that being said... Let's get on, shall we?


OK, face it... There is a possibility Trump could be the Anti-Christ. I can't say that a part of the conspiracy nut in the depths of my mental rabbit hole doesn't give it some thought but even with this, you have to admit, some pretty neat things are happening for the US even through all of the shambles our minds are left with after infinite sources that knows our deepest desires... Knowledge. It's a deep one if you think about it.

Reading through the list of new topics, one of musdicismagic's had me thinking. He said:


I don't live in the States, so I don't have a first hand feel that is what really is going on. Silently, many leaders of their countries are saying this mother fker really has the balls to tell the general public what is really happening and yet the media is slamming him for the truth and even this is overseas.


That totally made sense to me and I hadn't thought of it that way.

"tell the general public what is really happening and yet the media is slamming him for the truth"

Since before there was a President Trump, a man stood at a podium and based his whole campaign on 'Telling the People the Truth' and revealing corruption in the government. We were promised that those people would see justice. So many people rallied behind this, at very least, half.

Granted, we've always wanted someone like that. C'mon.. You all know you've imagined what it would be like if someone tore through the government and started fixing things while the whole of government resisted and said, 'You can't do that! That's not how this works. You can't just come in here and start shaking up the place, making all of these changes'.

What changes could they have been talking about? I remember the campaign promise of 'Bringing our Troops Home'. I remember something about finding and getting rid of corruption. I also remember a lot about how he was going to tell the people the truth. Oh I forget that whole Making America Eat Grapes. Or Make America Grapes again. I forget. I think someone told me it had to do with a full cup of really hot wine that God pours over Aqua-Lung. There was some other stuff in there but I can't remember off the top of my head. There was a pretty big list.

So anyways, the guy wins, people flip out. You would think that Orson Welles had written the script and All the world’s indeed a stage. ...but no. This is All Out Life. Every possible opposing politician along with nearly all unopposing politicians screamed from even before Trump was president, "IMPEACH"!

Because he wanted to come in there and do what he told the country he would do and for that, some little old frail crane of a woman, seemingly after eating her fill of white perch and drinking shots of valium says, "unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country".

Silly.

Fast forward to today - We scream for truth but when someone hands us that truth on a nice silver platter, sans bullets, one of two things are happening that we can all see.

- The government is stopping the US world and has done so for 3+ years just to figure out this Trump thing. All the while, the now Pres. Trump steps up to the tweeter mic and kicks some knowledge. Slamin some truffe and droppin da mic on ya'll while the media tries their best to block it out like a bad Hairday. They spin one side and shake up the other. People who work for him, hate him. People who work for a living tend to love him.

- The government is really not so bad and the media is only telling you the truth and how they see it is based on trustworthy hearsay. Trump came in like a wrecking bull and started making the rest of the world mad because they were needing to step up and pay their fair share. No! The US has to hold on to everything so it can maintain control of foreign markets. It's a strategy, Dammit! People are starving in our streets and our children are getting killed over squabbles in lands we don't own and certainly can't control. The working man is trying to enjoy a little life while he struggles through the greatest part of it because we seem to keep having to pay off debts. Then when the paycheck is cut, we use it to pay for our other debts. Hope there's enough for a few drinks later to relax that welling anger. The American Way and the only way we can do things if we want to eat. How did we get here?

We're so afraid of pissing off other countries by wanting to spend less on bills for stuff that only seems to make a mess of other countries to 'save them', We're so politicized that we couldn't push through a tug-a-war line demand truth unless we cut the damn thing down the middle... another middle. People are so glued to this that it's made it where people of different political religions can't defile themselves with the air being breathed by another political religion.


I kind of feel like I'm sitting on top of a tall hill in the middle of a valley. One one side of me I see the depths of the political mess we're in, here in the good old United States. Meanwhile, other countries are having their own problems. Australia is burning down, countries have citizens rioting, revolting and protesting for big changes. It's come to that much of a breaking point to peoples around the world.

We can throw in weather that where never to happen in such frequencies and destructiveness. Or global warming, if you want to go that route. Anyone can see we're heading towards a singularity of 'something'. Whether you see it as good or as bad might depend on how often you go outside and look around. You can't see a giant missile falling towards your house if you're never outside to see it.

Is it political? You bet your ass.

Is it social? Wish it weren't.

Is it religious? Probably in any way you can imagine it.

What's pushing it? Unlimited possibility?



Question... Without Pres. Trump, think... imagine... What would the world be like right now? I'm not asking about "No trump! Be Good!" or... "we'd be in a financial #hole".

Look at the state of the world - wars, famine, disease, poverty, religion, money, politics, justice... What would it be like? Would it be any different?

Ummm…"you can't fix stupid"...so I pretty much feel the world would still fall prey to charisma over character...

By character...I mean the courage to fulfill your convictions...despite insurmountable odds...intestinal fortitude...
not some cheesy morality one-upmanship...

Hopefully President Trump gets the chance to continue to appoint more conservatives to the SCOTUS...that would be his real legacy...A conservative supreme court shaping the way forward for at least another generation...

All interesting and somewhat familiar speculations.


I call this the scenic route

Same destination, different scenery and at times, quite the entertaining show. I can’t imagine that “the thinking people” of the world haven’t experienced some spiritual growth of some kind, over the last few years. I think that’s the silver lining.

Sure beats being thrown in the back of an unmarked van with a bag over your head, though. That’s kinda how I saw the alternative.

“Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world, I took the Trump train, going anywhere” 🎶

Humor is all I’ve got. But they say it’s good medicine!

You would think so but It leaves me wondering how. From the top down, half the country are idiots (take a side - any side) or they don't want to see the elephant in the room and the other half pretend to be smart yet we're still a complete and 100% mess.

From the bottom up, we feel 'normal', intelligent... just normal people who have at least a 5th grade education. We look around our immediate circle and we see half-ass normal people we enjoy being around. Speculating but we could probably consider that happening in bubble all over the planet. Those weird people we like to keep out of our circles make up the other missing portion of the universe. Real life dark matter. Even in their own circles, I'm sure they can have normal lengthy conversations. People who live outside the cities aren't stupid. They just don't know which ballet dancer won the 1859 Winter Olympics (I have no idea of the date - i made it up)....

So how is it possible we can all agree that we see stupidity in crazy proportions and somehow still call that normal and 'functioning'? I just don't understand how looking down doesn't match with looking around from the bottom up.


Figured it out... I am my own reality and none of you guys exist... Nope. Does't explain it either.

The world is on fire, has the fire been less or more in an era with or without Trump.

Some deep thoughts here, but I will withhold considering Trump the Anti-Christ up until he seemingly is healed from a mortal wound. We have another 5 years? It may be possible, he is just the harbinger of the Antichrist.

Still love the deep thought of your thread, but will still be voting for Trump in 2020!

I noticed that and love the analogy .

But I don’t think things are hopeless .

The way the world is working today.

I believe it’s more along the lines of .

Here, here

That’s the problem with deeply contemplating things.... I have to stop myself sometimes. Like, have to....

Not jumping off the train until I party for a while at least.

Ideologically Tainted? You should explain that statement.

The Judicial Branch are the final Arbitrators of disputes, Especially on matters Constitutional, as such they usually try to remain as Constitutionally accurate as is possible.
Every Human brings their own prejudices to their endeavors but if error is certain why not err on the conservative side of an issue?
The Oath is after all to protect and defend the Constitution.

no - you should comprehend it - its quite basic english

if you feel it " nesecary " for a judiciary to have a poltical bias - and cannot comprehend that this is wrong - then you are the wingnut that is the problem

I did not say that it was "necessary" although it is impossible for anyone to completely leave behind their political and religious beliefs, thus a certain level of bias being unavoidable.
It sounds to me as if your BIAS is on the socialist side of the spectrum, and since the spelling errors in your attack on my question, seem to imply that you may be drunk I will leave you to yourself.
You have been here long enough to know that in any debate, when you attack your opponent, you lose.
Good day.
