Pray for Trump: Psalm 109:8

"Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers arc in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

— Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Second inaugural address January, 1937

And that was two years ago.

From a post on my FB feed:

by Sidney Iwanter:

I don't usually give trump props, but he did a service to every American listening to his speech. He proved he couldn't pass a citizenship test if he were cribbing the notes off of his sons, Stephen Miller, and any other Orc who might have helped him with this word salad of historical nonsense.

He gave a lesson on our history so rife with mistakes mixing up an 1812 Battle (Baltimore) with the Revolutionary War, something about taking over airports during the time of Valley Forge (either LaGuardia, JFK, or Newark), which lead to our Anthem in 1814, some misplaced modifier about Cornwallis in or about or from Yorktown.

I probably missed more home schooling thoughts, but I was too busy pouring Propecia directly into my ears hoping to increase the growth of hair to drown the words out.

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we have the military pay to protecting the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes up very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

It could have fit in the Humor Section, but this section rose to the occasion.

As one tweet I saw quoted in a story today put it:

One if by land
Two if by sea
Three if by the Delta Shuttle from LaGuardia.

I wonder if anyone is bringing up all the "Obama is so dumb he needs a teleprompter" criticism from 2009-2016.

I keep wondering if trump or any of his offspring participated in that.
