Perfect match for your avatar.

And Snood, welcome back. The American people were given two very poor choices.

That's not how actual democracy works.

Not going to get deeply into it about this, but...
I don't think Hillary was all that bad a choice. If someone sees her as in some way comparable in "badness" to the pustule we've got in the white house now, they really need to examine the lens they are using to measure.

In any case thanks for the welcome back.

I voted you up for your scientific response, Snood, to the American scientist's study [you've already read about it above] that has revealed that the government of GW Bush lied about the events of 9-11.


I am not now, nor have I ever been a "truther" - i.e. a believer that George Bush conspired to bring the twin towers down. If you are responding to me on the basis that you thought I was, you can stop now.

Bush was dumb enough about 911 in reality. Putting him in some fantasy like conspiring to bring the towers down is wholly unnecessary.

Part of what has made this Trump thing hard to talk about is the sheer size of how fucked up it is. They are bad in so many ways; they have no coherent plans; they have no credibility. The fact that somehow they were able to win office is their sole go-to argument. We say, "You're corrupt and inept, and racist, and traitorous!" They say, "We won."

It was pretty obvious who was running the country during that time. He even made a special visit to Australia, to strong-arm our then PM into "staying the distance" in Iraq.

Said PM then failed to campaign in the next election, lost his seat to a political noobie, and stepped out of politics altogether. Go figure.

When election platforms are replaced by sound bytes, and become reality TV popularity contests, you get what you're given.

Cheetolini, mmm, is that like Musso? I'm not the 1st to consider that. There's visual similarity. I've read several books about Mussolini, now decades ago. I now am fading on remembering all the details, but I do remember some.

Yup, that's like "Musso".

@snood,
Got the gal to check it out. It's photo-shopped for sure.

Still a good job, though.

@snood,
Then you'd need to explain your comments. The post was an image.

Is the press covering any of the prez's successes with exposing organised paedophilia, and child trafficing?

Or sill fixated on his hair? Or his wife's ethnicity?

Snood has been perfectly clear and why do you think
trump has any interest in exposing organized pedophilia or child trafficking. He's all caught up in deporting mothers of small children and promoting Trump businesses.. His wife's ethnicity???? Which one????

@glitterbag,
Ah! the snoodess is here.

I only see the one wife on the prez's list of immediate family.

I've probably seen a hundred photos of Mussolini, but I don't have a photo memory all the time.
Resemblance is notable.

Only if you're an idiot, or just not paying attention. I've always used the Cheetolini metaphorical flourish to refer to fascism and absolutism in the two men's modi operandi. Now that you understand my reference, you're not going to launch right into a challenge of the comparison, are you?

Snoodess? Jealous that we're friends? Petty much?

@snood,
I come here for a good chuckle, snood.

Social media is all too serious sometimes.

Huge cyclone about to hit our neck of the woods, with massive rainfall predicted right down the coast.

You ignored my comments about reality TV and sound bytes.

If that's democracy, I'm Mary Poppins.

Truth be told, I had you on ignore altogether. I took everyone off ignore and resolved to try to sift through and make that decision on an individual basis after my A2K hiatus.
Congratulations - You're the first one back on ignore. You can continue to respond to me, but I won't see it.
