While we spend billions on defense, Russia shows us how to take down an enemy without firing...

a shot or assembling an army. Find a dullard. Run him for the highest office using race and bigotry. Hack a server. And Voila! You now have control of your enemy. Amazing when you think about it.

This is some Tywin Lannister / Red Wedding strategy. End a war by writing a letter.

5. True. Lots of obscenities around these days.

 

I wonder if we will survive it. If we do, I'm thinking there are going to be a lot of overdue changes getting done.

6. Changes MUST get done, for U.S. to survive.

Question: What happens with Senate/repugs, do they see the light, or wait to be kicked out a'la revolution?

9. I think most are too far gone to "see the light."

 

Like tRump they have painted themselves into the corner. With his very able assistance* they have demonstrated what complete and utter assholes they are and I don't think their party will recover from that. Rebranding ain't gonna do it this time.


*the only thing he has ever been good at

8. I am a child of the Cold War which the Russians

have now won, as you correctly point out, without firing a single bullet or dropping a single bomb, atomic or otherwise. A puppet installed in the Oval Office spreading dissension and chaos 24/7. Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev and all the others laughing and toasting vodka shots from that great dacha in the sky.
