Deus ex machina is what's gonna do it.

There is no one and nothing else. Everyone couches their language in careful words and deference to dignity, politesse, and “respect for the office of the Presidency“. Their side calls us criminals, pedophiles, corrupt, traitorous, And we answer with “going high” statements.

DU Rules forbid me from writing the sentences which must be retorts to these scurrilous charges, but suffice it to say that if we don’t have a Joseph Welch to the fifteenth power moment, you better pray for cardiovascular anomalies.

Yep....that’s the story.

1. We've already had a few black swans.

We probably need one the size of a pterodactyl.

2. I agree with you

That's why I stopped posting my rants. I'll rant a bit in replies but what I really want to say would burn alot of snowflakes.

Dems need to tell the truth in the most vicious way they can. Trump would implode if everybody ridiculed and laughed at him.

4. Most likely.

As I posited in January, expect the unexpected for the entire year.

I expect extraterrestrials to come and help us any day now.

7. Could be...

On e of my distant relatives has been trying to convince me that they are getting ready to show up just as soon as...

And there are several other CTs offered for every topic dealing with the politcalverse, but they don't want to discuss politics because all of that is just bs to keep us from finding out the truth. The truth, to them, is whatever CT fits in that slot. I worry for this person, and have discussed it with other relatives. Those belibers are out there, sad to say. At least that one doesn't vote.

11. One of the greatest Sci Fi movies ever made (got the first one wrong)...The Day the Earth Stood

Still"...1951.. deals with that idea..How to deal with the idiotic, self distructive, human race..

...........That one is available at libraries (when they open) and Netflix...probably for free on line somewhere..

.......And it is a one of the greatest, most honest, movies ever made, & you will never forget it.

12. I agree.

It was one of my favorites in the scifi world back then. Saw it several times over the years and make references to on occasion.

10. I'd make Michael Rappaport Official Trump Heckler for the Democratic Party

No one is vicious like New Yorkers are vicious.
