6. "Arms race"?

Now there's a phrase I haven't heard much since the good ol' "Duck and Cover" days of my childhood. (Yep, I'm that old.) Another phrase has popped into my mind: "Nuclear Winter".

Can NO-ONE stop this insane miserable excuse for a human being from taking office?? And no, I'm not suggesting anything untoward. I also clearly recall November 22, 1963, a painful memory indeed.

If I weren't an atheist, I'd be inclined to say, Lord help us all!

Stay strong, everyone.

Evidently he wants to relive his youth, when we were all waiting for the air raid sirens to tell us we had only 15 more minutes to live.

16. You mean the part about me being that old?

That is correct. So is the part about the Duck and Cover drills in grade school. An alarm would sound and we little sheeple would jump under our desks post haste, then cover our heads with our arms. The "Red Threat" was pounded into our tiny brains in the lessons we learned about Evil Communism, the also-Evil Russians (the term MVD sticks in my mind), children turning their parents in for not being the party faithful, and of course the nuclear threat that demanded the US match the USSR weapon for weapon. As an aside, I had a teacher who insisted USSR stood for United States of Soviet Russia. Talk about uninformed! Of course, the horrors of WWII were just being revealed in excruciating detail, adding to the fear factor, and I had a classmate in 4th grade who loved sharing in graphic detail how the Japanese tortured our prisoners in their camps. Also, word was, if you heard an airplane in the sky 'way up above, but didn't see it, it was the enemy about to drop one of those dreadful A-bombs and we would all be pulverized.

Well, I just shared more than you ever wanted to hear, I'm guessing. Gosh, when I look back on those days, it's a wonder I turned out normal at all. Hmmm...come to think of it, maybe I didn't, but also didn't spent years on a psychiatrist's couch, so maybe that's a good sign. Okay, that's enough. Be safe and blessings to you.

BTW, DU is one of my most valued safety nets as I navigate my dotage.

18. I am that old, too.

I remember being in kindergarten and having to go downstairs to the scary basement for those drills. I also spent a couple of days in a home bomb shelter during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I marched on the front lines for women's rights, I helped occupy a building on my campus for minority students, I marched in Madison for our union rights.

I feel like "Good Grief! Not this crapola again!" The Evils of the "Reds".


I think the anticipation will kill us off-I am unsure of what will happen in 2017, but 2016 sucked!

I come to DU a lot, it almost did me in when it was down for the election.

29. I am that old as well, and remember it all too well. my only consolation at this point is that, as

when I was younger, I live at a ground zero, so won't have to worry past the first couple of minutes.

FU, you orange, hate-filled, war-mongering pervert. I wish I believed in hell--actually, I wish I believed in the hell that needs to be created for you, and those who support and suck up to you.

22. Nobody can say they weren't warned that yes, he IS this crazy.

Donald Trump repeatedly asked an unnamed foreign policy expert why the U.S. couldn’t use its nuclear weapons stockpile during a national security briefing earlier this year, MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough said Wednesday.

23. The Major Regret Is That

None of the vetting happened before the election. Indeed, the election coverage in this election was by far the worst I have seen in all of my 76 years. This kind of buyers remorse should not have been set up by the incompetent leading the incompetent, leaving us to live our lives in fear of what comes next.

40. Honestly this is terrifying

I am not confident that this fool will not destroy us and take half or more of the planet with us. He's really out of touch with reality and his ego complex is extremely dangerous.

If we start a "limited nuclear war" it could very easily spiral out of control. The probability of that event may still be small (though I'm not even sure of that) the consequences are so dire as to make it unthinkable.

Should I be working on plans to evacuate my family to lower radiation areas?
