    I know Rudy G can get carried away on telly sometimes, but this piece he did with Fox is was hot. Me thinks the time is getting closer the way Rudy is talking.

    Just wondering if the “whistle blower” has broken any law for tipping off the Democrats on a possible criminal investigation on one of their own guys?

    Trying to use impreachment to stop the investigation? If you stop investigating, then we’ll withdraw the impreachment? The response does not commensurate with the 3 million dollars only. Anyway, what’s 3 million dollars today?? Just the perks that comes with the job. No big deal.

    When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

    -Hunter S. Thompson

    Seems an apt statement re current state of US (and global) politics.

    Such a shame he piked out. His writings on Trump would be something to behold.

    Witness his writings on Bush, which sound like they were written today:

    Is it possible that he has already abandoned all hope of getting re-elected? Or does he plan to cancel the Election altogether by declaring a national military emergency with terrorists closing in from all sides, leaving him with no choice but to launch a huge bomb immediately?. . . Desperate men do desperate things, and stupid men do stupid things. We are in for a desperately stupid summer.

    One of the biggest assumption we make is that Trump needs a second term? Trump doesn't need a 2nd term to make the trade war irreversible.

    I used follow his Rolling Stone pieces avidly. At the time he was shaking the establishment press with a fury that matched my youthful anger.

    Hunter S was matchless and invented a new style of reporting:

    "Richard Nixon has never been one of my favorite people anyway. For years I've regarded his existence as a monument to all the rancid genes and broken chromosomes that corrupt the possibilities of the American Dream; he was a foul caricature of himself, a man with no soul, no inner convictions, with the integrity of a hyena and the style of a poison toad. The Nixon I remembered was absolutely humorless; I couldn't imagine him laughing at anything except maybe a paraplegic who wanted to vote Democratic but couldn't quite reach the lever on the voting machine."​


    His successor, again in Rolling Stone, is Matt Taibbi, who casts a long shadow:

    "The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it’s everywhere. The world’s most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money. In fact, the history of the recent financial crisis, which doubles as a history of the rapid decline and fall of the suddenly swindled dry American empire, reads like a Who’s Who of Goldman Sachs graduates."

    But Taibbi, good as he is, will never express his outrage as fluently as Hunter S.

    One last quote for his memory.

    We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world, a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not just Whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us. No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we'll kill you. Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush? They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character.

    Being that Donald Trump is at the very top of the food chain on the planet, has a genetically strong mate and high functioning, successful offspring I would say that natural selection favours him just fine.
