As for the Downfall scenario, Hitler at least had the physical courage to kill himself. Trump? SRSLY?

After taking the cyanide capsules, one of his personal body guards came in and administered the “coup de gras”.

At that point, the furertru filtered out of the bunker. I one story I read, some SS General made off with diamonds that were part of the “Blue Max” iron cross award. Seems some used diamonds to signify super high bravery.

My mom remembers when Mussolini got ousted. She said people were leaving their government offices with whatever they could carry. Now they just go to K Street and steal the right way.

“My way of learning is to heave a wild and unpredictable monkey-wrench into the machinery.”


-- Dashiell Hammett

Another quote from Mr. Hammett:


“Who shot him? I asked. The grey man scratched the back of his neck and said: Somebody with a gun.”

All snark aside, that's an interesting thought: Owing to the perpetual fluffing, is Dolt 45 truly so utterly detached from reality that a blow on the level of an electoral loss would be truly incomprehensible? If so, how many others does he take down with him?

Its not hard to imagine this guy gets so much super filtered and sifted news he really believes what he's saying. Look at what he says: "Polls say I'm doing great", "I'm doing great with the virus", "People like how I'm handling the economy". etc. They all smack of gettting happy land briefings written by unicorns.

All you have to do is present the polls quoting results from "The Villages". Ignore the ones from Michigan or even Texas

As an IG we got to know very quickly what and was BS and what wasn't. A good reason for telling the truth: One Engineer unit kept reporting it was operationally ready on a certain report. (Personal note: this report is BS, too complex, too easily "fudged". Sadly, many Commander's evaluations are based on these numbers.) Well... Desert Storm came up and this unit was picked to go because the report said they were so good. End result: after checking and re checking it didn't go because reality was way different than the report. (For want of a horse...)

Sadly, its not a new nickname for Sen Cruz

Texas is Now Battling an Infestation of R.O.U.S aka Swamp Rats

Giant Swamp Rats are appearing in Kraus Baker Park in Texas and residents of the area fear that they may contaminate the water and destroy the ecosystem. They are massive in size and are apparently feeding alongside the ducks. One video posted shows exactly how invasive they have been.
