the gaps between the rich and the poor will only deepen. 

it is not conceivable what you can see in certain parts of the most advanced country in the world.

some places are more dangerous than the most uncivilized places on earth.

if that is not evidence enough for people to see through the blinders they are wearing, then what is?

under similar situations, bigger empires have crumbled before. even though i truly believe, koutsa, strava we will prevail, and the outcome will be a better tomorrow. 

 

failure is the ultimate teacher

And then if the people turn to violence they are labelled with all manner of derogatory terms.  Unfortunately, the protests outside Wall St during the GFC debacle were weak.  I'm not saying they needed to be violent but they definitely should have been more vocal and longer lasting.  A slogan one of the protesters held summed it up aptly "Don't worry, the French Aristocracy didn't see it coming either". :wink:

There are too many people who have worked for Trump in his campaign and later the White House who have said he's childish, ignorant, probably mentally unstable, and generally not qualified to be president. Of course, his defenders would say it's politics, but look how many people in very high positions have left after very brief time. Apparently he likes to fire people when his policies or ideas don't pan out. But let's not forget that he hired those "incompetent and mean" people to begin with.

DJT: .. Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star... I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!

Like, nothing screams stable when you tweet in the middle of the night about "sloppy Joe," "little Marco," "lyin' Ted" and all the other childish insults...

This is how children drink water (2 hands) President-Trump-Touts-Foreign-Policy-Acc

The person who said would "drain the swamp" and hire the best, most terrific people!

We got LOTS of it down under.  And according to all the advertisements (or is it propaganda) from the coal companies, yeah man, it's pretty clean.  Australia, good at digging stuff out of the ground, not much else.

Best idea I've heard in a long time! :applause-597229:One little modification (maybe). Drink the Molson, build the wall with piss. :beer-817053:

We're really screwed.... It's not just the orangutan. Both bodies of Congress (controlled by the Republicans) are complicit in this savage dismemberment of Democracy, our Judicial and the US Constitution.

Dark times are coming. :vampire:

Something to read, something that could get us thinking:

Dream Coal: Clean coal is more of an idea than a reality, and many scientists doubt it will ever become an effective countermeasure to the emission of carbon dioxide from fossil fuel combustion. -- From Snopes, a project that begun in 1994 as an expression of his interest in researching urban legends that has since grown into the oldest and largest fact-checking site on the Internet.

What little I do know of clean coal indicates it's a pipe dream.  Google "clean coal power plant over budget" to get an idea.

Read here http://reneweconomy.com.au/flagship-clean-coal-project-abandoned-despite-10bn-investment-84327/ 

A snippet from the article.

The 582-megawatt plant, initially projected to cost $US1.8 billion, has so far run up a bill of over $US7.5 billion ($A10 billion) in construction and engineering expenses. In comparison, a typical 700-megawatt natural gas plant would have cost roughly $US700 million to build.

It's draining living in the time of Trump. Really! For somebody living in the USA and used to following political life and paying attention to his elected officials, it's like a black hole sucking you down. Can't escape it and that sinking feeling just adds to the agony.

Here's from CNN:

52 major news stories. 31 days. One month in Trump's Washington.

President Donald Trump demonstrated a unique ability during his first year: He can bend time. Never before have more twists and turns been packed into each day of a presidency. 

Read the story

Anybody have any good ideas of how to "drain the swamp"?

And this is the other bozo, the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, touting their tax cuts: a full $1.50 a week. Paul Ryan received $500,000 in campaign contributions from the Koch brothers after passing the tax reform bill. Wells Fargo, fresh off of defrauding millions of Americans, gets $3.4 billion. An extra $1.50 a week should be good enough, right?

Republicans are morally corrupt, no matter how you slice it.

But many Americans like that secretary voted for Trump, because, heck, he'll build a wall, bring back jobs, drain the pool, stand during the national anthem, and generally make America great again!

I can't fathom how so many people have been duped by Trump. His lies are so obvious and he's bullshitting all his life.

They were concentrating on the wicked witch.  They didn't want to vote for her.  I can only presume they didn't realise they were voting for a baboon.

Yes, she was very unpopular and, as it seems, she didn't excite her base to come out and vote.

But, these two represented two different worlds. She was qualified to be president. And, she would appoint competent people in vital positions. And, probably she'd be raising her own taxes instead.

I think many voters don't really think about the greater implications of voting for a president. Probably they voted against HRC without thinking about the Supreme Court, the environment, science, education, health care, foreign relations, etc, etc. 

I'd like to think that most of us would call out a bullshitter like Trump no matter what party he belonged to. It was so obvious that he was either lying or didn't know what he was talking about. So obvious.  It's like you walk into a room to talk about something you know nothing about.... you'd say generalities and bullshit that would make people happy.

Hey, if you elect me to run Phantis I'll give everyone free internet access, money for every post, and a new car every month to the person whose posts are liked the most. Trust me, I'm very successful, and I can make Phantis great again. Just give me the keys!

      We had another mass shooting in the US, this time in Las Vegas, the deadliest of its kind, until the next one of course. Our right to be safe is trampled by the right for someone to own military-grade weapons.
      We had hoped that after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, Congress would act to pass some federal gun safety laws. Nothing!  The victims' stories and pictures in Vegas are beginning to circulate now. I'll leave you with the images of the children of Sandy Hook as a horrific reminder that how a political party and its leaders are essentially in the pocket of the gun lobby.

      Pentagon Officials Allowed Workers to Use Government Credit Cards at Strip Clubs
       

       
      The initial 2015 audit discovered that workers spent nearly $100,000 at various strip clubs and related adult-oriented establishments, which kinda sounds like nothing when compared with the estimated $1 million spent at casinos. As for how exactly such charges are allowed to exist, the report's findings suggest that Defense Travel Management Office officials and DoD management did not properly explain how the travel cards should be used. Furthermore, DoD officials were not adequately trained on how to discipline those found to have misused the cards. For the complete rundown, read the full report right here.

      The hotly anticipated Jason Bourne 5 is now in filming and they selected Greece to play a major part in the film. Original director and team are back so this will be the smash of 2016.
       
      Sadly the Greek Government did not want the film shot in Greece, so they instead will shoot the Athens/Greece scenes in Tenerife..  :tdown:

      Inexplicable decision
      Online government portal Diavgeia turned out to be one of the most important reforms carried out in Greece over the last few years. A decision by today?s leftist-led coalition government to dismantle the transparency initiative program was based on absolutely unfounded excuses and represents a major setback. The government portal allowed citizens to have access to decisions regarding state recruitments and procurements, the expenditure of public organizations and other interesting information.
      In the absence of Diavgeia, what is more than certain is that the corrupt and the wasteful will once more be able to hide behind a veil of nontransparency. The removal of the transparency portal was no doubt an incomprehensible decision on the part of the SYRIZA-Independent Greeks administration.

      Was interesting, Tsipras was completely pro the Turkish deal. He did not have one red line.
      The Cypriots forced the EU to not open 5 vital EU Chapters on Turkey. The EU agreed and those Chapters remain closed. Tsipras could have asked for Turkey to recognise Greek borders that are constantly violated - sea and air and could have asked Turkey to recognise the Greek status of the islands of the dodeconese. Tsipras could have said Turkey has to scrap Turkey's causi belli against Greece if Greece moved is sea borders to 12 miles. Instead, Tsipras demanded nothing, except Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia (the V4 right wing group) agree to the EU - Turkish deal. Previous Greek PMs also stated Turks would not be allowed to settle on Greek Islands to alter the demographics if the was ever free movenent visa liberalisation for Turks. Tsipras demanded nothing. And Kammenos? The big right wing Greek who cares about security? He said and did nothing.
