Something for everyone

Comedy and tragedy mirror each other. In comedy, everything goes wrong for our hero but we know it won’t kill him. In tragedy, we know it will.

For similar reasons, assume that the Democrats and Republicans are mirror opposites of each other.

Despite his histrionics, Trump is a blank slate. Socially deaf. A focus of a heart that is a lonely hunter. One can see him as the hero in one’s war with the deep state, or as the villain in one’s desire to see democratic institutions working together for the common good.

War to me isn’t politics by other means, its wealth protection by other means.

Do you believe Americans entered World War I or II because we wanted to save Europe? If so, why didn’t we jump in at the…
