Those of you outside the US, I don't know why you give a 5h1t about what's happening in the US.

Because the US are very much meddling in countries outside the US!!!
Two days ago Joe Biden was in Stockholm.
Many parts of the town was closed down because of his visit.
That made it impossible to us regular folks to move about in our town!
We "outsiders" have all the reasons to discuss and complain about US policies!

btw. CIA thinks US laws applies in Sweden.
They don't!!!!

Problem...

Who protects International Commerce, and enforces Western International Law, when the policeman goes home?

Post WWII Pax Americana, for good and bad, which the world has been living in. Is fading.

Pax Americana[1][2][3] (Latin for "American Peace", modeled after Pax Britannica and Pax Romana) is a term applied to the concept of relative peace in the Western Hemisphere and later the world as a result of the preponderance of power enjoyed by the United States beginning around the middle of the 20th century and continuing to this day. Although the term finds its primary utility in the latter half of the 20th century, it has been used with different meanings and eras, such as the post-Civil War era in North America,[4] and regionally in the Americas at the start of the 20th century.

Pax Americana is primarily used in its modern connotations to refer to the peace among great powers established after the end of World War II in 1945, also called the Long Peace. In this modern sense, it has come to indicate the military and economic position of the United States in relation to other nations. For example, the Marshall Plan, which spent $13 billion to rebuild the economy of Western Europe, has been seen as "the launching of the pax americana."

Back to normal.

Gee it looks like the Americans have a new term:
The ALT-right!

That's a new term to me as well.
Apparently stands for Alternative Right.
Today we see more and more of these people who like this idea in Europe.
Even in the governments!

I think I prefer Alternative Wrong...

Alternative Right and Alternative Left, are people's choices during times of stress.

Unfortunately... Both are Alternative Wrong.

janne...

You are correct about Europe. And this includes America.

Oh, it seems that (according to the LA Times) that Trump is back in the lead, though it is a VERY slim lead (for now) (Trump 44.3%, Clinton 43.6%).


http://graphics.latimes.com/usc-presidential-poll-dashboard/

Repeating three thoughts:

#1 - The support for Trump, Anti-Establishment, Anti-Washington, Anti-Hillary, Anti-Political Correctness, Anti-Thug Left, Anti-Globalist's, Anti-Open Borders, et al, in most polls. Are under-counted. Possibly to a great extent.

#2 - "It's the economy, stupid"

#3 - Hillary, and her supporters, are enabling a Trump victory.

Now on all 50!

Just another Ross Perot, or 'Teddy' Roosevelt (1912)?

To the Johnson supporters:

Johnson will only split the Anti-Establishment vote. Handing the victory to Hillary.

YES!!!!!

Hillary is a Fraud, Corrupt, a Puppet of the International Capitalists, and Totally Incompetent.

Trump is Dangerous!

I don't think there's any reason to doubt anymore.
The media covers campaigns as in a horse race.

No doubt about it.

Even the once respectable New York Times. Has degenerated into a Dirty Underwear Person, blogging from his/her basement.

Note: The NYT has been delivered to my doorstep, every morning, for more than 4 decades.

For the first time: Having second thought regarding my subscription.

This was not about Right Vs. Wrong. But Possible vs. Not Possible.

So... It MOST CERTAINLY IS about Right vs. Wrong... Else, the Constitutional Rule of Law is truly dead.

Constitutional Law, as taught in schools. Is what we hope for. But, just as Christianity: Not how sinful humans operate.

Christian Beliefs are not dead because of sin.

Neither is a Lawful Constitution dead because of sin.

They are the ideals we strive for.

One wonders what the odds would be to get the FBI director on obstruction of justice charges for declining to charge Clinton with even a few of the numerous that felon has committed...

Different 'take'.

In the Real Politic World of Washington: He went as far as he could.

His personal, and unannounced public listing of his 'Bill of Particulars', was very Politically Powerful.

Yes... Unannounced, so 'They' couldn't stop him.

This was not about Right Vs. Wrong. But Possible vs. Not Possible.

I actually like Her work, as Fiction, Nothing More.

guido...

???

Of course it is a work of fiction.

But... Many people believe her BS, Marxist BS, Socialist BS, Progressive BS, KKK BS, Nazi BS, Religion BS, et al.

All we have is one BS Belief, yelling at the other BS Belief's, and calling the other BS's names.

If it wasn't for their Mass Murdering and/or Mass Controlling of humans:

Their BS would be both Laughable and Boring.

Should continued reading shed any light for me, understanding the minds of others? Particularly, Trump and his supporters?

Sarge... Sorry for the delayed response.

Roark's (Ayn Rand) beliefs are shared by a large portion of the American People. Most of them will probably vote for Trump.

Trump's real belief's? Who knows.

Not wishing to give away Roark's explanation, and to who at the end:

We should continue this discussion upon your completion.

Clinton says U.S. could "totally obliterate" Iran.
Old news, but I maintain it is relevant.

Oh dear.
Saying "totally obliterate" a country is a big threat.
Not even Putin has used that terms. (Well his advisors have...)

Read up on obliterate.

The two A-Bombs (there were none left in our arsenal), were used to save many American lives. In addition to stopping Stalin.

Unintended consequences?

Saved many, many, many, Japanese lives. They were not going to surrender, and were ready to commit National Suicide.

Having read extensively regarding the Internal Japanese Debate during this time:

The A-Bombs gave them a 'Face Saving' reason to surrender.

Howard Roarke is such an interesting character, it's taken me 1 year to get through 1/4 oof the book. Reading Limbaugh went so much more quickly. Even "Earth in the Balance" went more quickly!

Howard Roark (Mr. Ayn Rand?). Is a very interesting character, with many valid observations and ideas.

But as most fanatics disclose, if they gain power: "My way, or..."


Spoiler as to what happens after the first quarter of the book?

No spoiler...

Just a general observation.

What he does, his explanation, and where he explains...

You will not put the book down.

Sometimes Trump seems to be more trustworthy than Hillary.
But are Hillary and Donald the only ones that the american people have to choose from.
The US is a great country with about 310 million citizens.
Vote for heavens sake!

Since the end of WWII. Exactly what threat (real - not implied) does one need to STOP the Initial Use of Nuclear Weapons against innocents?

How does one STOP Insane, but not stupid Marxists, Nazi's, Jihadists, etc.

Sorry... But when a Real War is fought. Innocents are always killed by a Civilized and Ethical People.

Was it successful. When we told the Mass Murdering and Enslaving Marxists. You use nuclear weapons - we incarcerate you?

Unfortunately... Civilized and Ethical Cultures. Never learn from history. And must always repeat, against their wishes, what must be done to save their Civilization.

Civilized Cultures have great strengths. But great weaknesses regarding what is necessary to Defeat Evil.

BUT and it is large. If you knew when you set up your corporation, and signed contracts, that it would run to bankruptcy court, that is criminal fraud.

Just as bad as lying to the people to become President?

Too bad that Political Lies. Are not held to the same criminal standards, as Business Lies.

Political Lies have destroyed more lives.

And the reason Obama did not deliver om hope and change is because hs is a neo-liberal, like the Clintons. Which means, they are essentially Republicans excpet on a few social issues ,such as abortion ands gay marriage. And notice how long it took both Barack and Hillary on gay marriage, even.

Correct, and more.

Both the Republican and Democrat Establishment's, have caused great damage.

Joe Biden?

You must be smoking better stuff than Dull to think someone whose name isn't on the ballot could win.

Gary...

If Hillary cannot continue her Campaign due to illness [sic], or any other reason:

Who would the Democrats run for President?

Answer: Anyone they wish. Edit: Doesn't have to be the person they Nominated for the Office of the Vice President.

Remember... The Vice Presidency, under our Constitution. Is a separately Elected Office. Only combined on the ballot for convenience, and the Power of the Party.

Yes... Anyone, meeting the qualifications. Can run separately on the ballot, for Vice President.

Even more interesting: His answers regarding International Trade Agreements. Could have come from Trumps mouth.

More likely Trump's statements came from Bernie's mouth.
