No war games in south Korea?

That's what the Asshole said. Gosh we can save soooo much money. He just decided that on a whim. Didn't bother to consult with South Korea or Japan or his own military chiefs or his own Defense Director. Nope, no need to consult with anyone, because only he can fix things.

To me, this is the most frightening outcome of this fiasco. The Japanese must be seething this morning.

It's to be expected from a man with no moral compass

It's to be expected. No surprise at all. A man, who sits by idly allowing children to be taken from their mother's arms and then locked up in dog cages. That he could hypocritically defend the flag and then display it repeatedly next to the North Korean flag. That he could come out and tell us of his great success making a good relationship with a murderous tyrant.

We were recently asking "where is the bottom? To what depths will he stoop?" Sadly there is no bottom.

And sadly for us, the world has seen this movie before, when 2 tyrants form a mutual admiration society.

It's all a flim-flam. We are being played.

Trump shows up with no physicists or scientists of any kind. No sanctions experts. No Korea diplomatic experts. No secretary to official notes. We're supposed to just trust them. It's just a photo op for Trump, where he will claim tremendous success. They will declare it a great accomplishment and peace is near. Great progress is being made. blah blah blah But there will be no details. No timeline. Just a con man's bullshit flim-flam.

I feel disgusted with it. Really sorry I tuned in to watch it.

Thank-you WRR-FM

When the TV gets too grim and and filled with dreadful political news about the latest Trump vulgarity, I turn of WRR-FM. An all classical music station, owned by the city of Dallas - commercial free. First licensed radio station in Texas and one of the first 5 licensed stations in America. Right now I'm listening to Barber's Adagio for strings. Before that, it was Tchaikovsky's Cello concerto. Not too bad, ehh?
It's so nice to know that there is still beauty in the world. It lifts my spirits. I hope you have a place of beauty in your life.

The Emperor has no clothes

Today's diplomatic debacle reminds me of the old story about an emperor leading a parade while naked. Failure after failure after failure. The documents supposedly proving his spy-gate BS, will also get ridiculed as a failure.

Meanwhile be sure to tell your family and friends that the Emperor has no clothes.

Some serve. Some serve themselves.


I no longer care or expect an apology about the McCain insult

McCain's family does deserve an apology., but it just ain't gonna happen. Trump and his sycophants have made it abundantly clear that no apology will be forthcoming. They perceive it as a sign of weakness and an admission that they are wrong and vulgar. So no point holding our breath waiting for an apology. It has now become just another Trump distraction outrage.

There are far more important things to focus on. Like the disaster Trump has caused with making Jerusalem the capital. Or the the GOP in Louisiana are about to throw 30,000 people out of nursing homes.


Hey John Kelly, just give it up

It is not worth the heartache. It is not worth that anxious knot of dread in your gut that you feel every morning on your way into work. There is no honor to be gained by working for such a corrupt regime. Surely you are better than that.

I had a beloved teacher in high school (class of 1965), who once told me the importance of working within my limitations. You should check out the Greek legend of Prometheus, the champion of humanity. His fate for his championship was to be bound to a rock and have an eagle feast on his liver every day.

Do you want to be a real hero? It's easy. Just walk away. Hold a press conference and decry the corruption and stupidity of the regime that you have served. Pick up the phone and ask John McCain to cover your back. Somewhere inside you, there is a little piece of you that can never be dishonored or tarnished. It is your right to just say "No! I won't do that, say that, or be that." Redeem yourself. Just walk away.

Belshazzar's Feast

I am not a Christian, I am a Buddhist. Even so, I find many stories in the Bible to be very instructive. Lately the whole saga of Trump's endless saga of sorry scandals has reminded me of the story of Belshazzar's feast, as told in the book of Daniel.

Mene mene tekel upharsin, which roughly translates as "You have been weighed and measured and found wanting."

If you don't know this story, see https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Daniel+5&version=NKJV

Here's Rembrandt's painting of the Feast of Belshazzar
