    China won't want Trump to be re-elected so they will try to disrupt the stock market next year, maybe sometime around 2020 Q2. Trump is smart enough to know this so he will try to pre-empt it. The next 1-2 months will be very interesting.

    Nancy Pelosi sure chose a spectacular way to have the Democratic part commit suicide. At least she does things in a big way.

    I think people outside of America are also in an echo chamber that they accuse Republicans to be in.

    Most Asean leaders skip summit with US Asean Summit https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/most-asean-leaders-skip-summit-with-us-asean-summit
    At the Asean-US Summit, US National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien read out a letter from Mr Donald Trump in which the US President invited Asean leaders to the United States for a "special summit" in the first quarter of next year. But one observer says the invitation may be viewed as a 'consolation prize'.

    Democrats are like Romans at the end of the Roman Empire, living in the past glory of Rome and oblivious to the empire that is collapsing around them.

    America and the world is lucky to have Trump to clear up the mess that Obummer and Clinton created.

    I don’t distinguish between GOP and Democrats, both are steering a waning super power. 120 years ago Uk was undisputed superpower with competition from Russia, France, Austria-Hungary, Italy and Germany.

    I doubt USA would be considered a superpower at the end of 21st century

    I don't want to speculate what will happen but the world by the end of the 21st century will look nothing like the last 10,000 years of human civilisation.

    Population will become a huge liability once AI, robotics and automation become mainstream by the end of the 21st century. There will be no jobs for countries with more than 10-30 million people.

    How will the world be like when people are no longer needed? I read that in some ancient societies, including korea, the people that can't work or prove themselves useful are sacrificed.

    People will always be needed as long as we rule the world.
    Some are more useful than others and many are even now useless to society.

    Lets not forget, it was the USA who bled Great Britain dry (effectively bankrupt and economically decimated) during two world wars and became fat off same with any pangs of guilt.....now it's been China and Europe doing the same to the USA the last 30-40 years. How the wheel turns.

    Maybe DJT will stop the rot. Only time will tell but I like his approach and attitude.

    DJT maybe able to stop the rot, but he can’t stop the world moving towards an autocratic new world order.

    My question is - in the future when people are no longer needed and we have an autocratic world order, what will happen to the unnecessary people?

    45 years ago, Soylent Green showed people being turned into food.

    20 years in the Matrix, the bots used people as a power source.

    In the future, a autocratic / AI driven global govt (if it gets to that), could use surplus people just like the Japanese did in WWII as slave labour, worked to death....maybe here on earth or out in the stars.

    Sent to work on asteroid mining colonies sounds about right but most of us here won’t see this.

    Re: unnecessary people, some prime example are...

    Aborigines to Australia
    Indians/Blacks to America
    Uyghurs to China
    Kurds to Turkey/Syria/Iraq
    Rohingya to Burma

    And the list goes on...

    It’s unlikely any nation will make the effort to exterminate the “unnecessary”, too much human sensibilities and all, besides Germans, Turkey and Australia tried genocide but all failed.

    in the context of societal unnecessary people like unemployed of any race, other than lip service, only few actually care enough to do anything. 99.99% people walk past beggars.
    In Singapore what do they do? Very few beggars compared to Sydney CBD

    The very definition of unnecessary means very few people will care.

    Blacks and Indians arent unnecessary by any means. Huge amounts of subsidies go to them all for being the right race and skin color.. in a time they preach that race and skin color dont matter.
    It's never all about race or skin color until it comes to buying votes. And the repubs answer is to spend even more haha. Good job.

    Clever overdub? Looking at another clip on "St co's" youtube, the video comparing Barry Bathhouse and "demented circus clown" it is very obviously overdubbed with canned laughter.

    Given the page views and the only evidence for this song being on a leftwing prop site shilling for windfarms, legal pot and "extinction rebellion", all pointing that way.

    Quite well done anyway, if a crock.

    I remember how all the MSM would make fun of Trump for firing people working under him. They would say things like "he's on his third... so far". Why can't he keep the same people like Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc, did in past years?

    The "deep state" really does run deep. Imagine trying to be prez and finding out many of the people you hired were conspiring against you?
