Oh come on, folks...

This war is only gonna take two, maybe three days at the most. Look, Trump knows more about the militaries of the world than anyone including his own generals. They’ll just scramble the B-52’s and those planes you can’t see even when you’re looking right at them.... you know they have beeps coming out of them so the pilots and mechanics can find them on the tarmac...and in no time Hell on Earth will be unleashed. Meanwhile since the Iranians have never considered this possibility of dealing with President Superman, they’ll be so flustered that they’ll just give up, sign a treaty that will allow Trump Hotels, Resorts, and Golf Clubs to be built in all major cities.

What could go wrong?

12. If anyone misplaced one, I have one of those invisible planes in my driveway.....

I keep hitting my head on it so I'd like to get rid of it. I'd post it for sale on ebay, but it doesn't show up in the pictures. I found what think is the instruction manual, but it is invisible as well.

I'm not sure how it got there, but I gave some very nice small grey people with very large eyes some of my recent bodhi crop. They bowed, pointed to the driveway, waved, and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.

Anyone want a slightly used late model stealth attack ship from sirius-b?

Everything inside it becomes invisible, which makes it hard to read the instruments. I haven't figured out that part yet.

Also, I've wondered what happens if I turn on a dome light. Do people on the ground see lights in the sky?

... followed by a flood of 30 million unemployable refugees who will not be welcome anywhere in the world.

The price of Russian and Iranian oil and natural gas will skyrocket.

But that's not what will end Trump. Putin will release the infamous "P" tape, taken from Jeffery Epstein, in which Donald Trump and William Barr are recorded boffing an underage girl. Trump's Evangelical base will not be upset by that, per se, except that Trump is seen enthusiastically groping Barr's ass.

Sometimes, I just need to fantasize about an easy way to positive change. A break from the endless spiral, that things will have to get worse before they get better.
Can't we just eject, float back to earth under a parachute and let the war machine crash into a mountainside.
