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

Fully agree. I have a friend who periodically sends me anti Obama/Hillary/fruitcake è mails. I asked him where he got this looney bin crap. Said his mom was sending it.

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.

I avoid Facebook mostly but do have an account for my volunteer work and to keep up with a few of my long term, long distance friends. In a sentimental moment I friended my mom's cousin, age 80. Her feed is filled with laudatory messages about Trump and his religiosity (unlike Obama he allows Christmas in the White House!) and other such stuff.

Only to anyone but Allah. But he was too busy imposing Sharia law throughout the USA and didn’t have the opportunity to enforce the troop policy.
"All glory to the HypnoTrump, or else..."

"It all makes sense when you remind yourself that the GOP is no longer a political party but turned into an organized crime family"

"I hope to live long enough that the name Trump is reviled as much as the name Hitler or Stalin"

To be fair, he was also taking people's guns away, kowtowing to dictators, palling around with terrorists, forging his birth certificate, and channeling Saul Alinsky. All that keeps a person pretty busy!

All funded by George Soros, of course.
