Joyce Vance has a excellent analysis of that long TIME article

Yesterday, Time magazine published an in-depth interview with Donald Trump titled “How Far Trump Would Go.”
Notice that the title is not a question. It’s a definitive statement.

Last November, we discussed this topic in a piece I wrote called “Frogs Boiled: What Trump is Planning for a
Second Term.” I wrote it when we first learned that Trump had posted his plan for a second term, Project 2025,
online and that it was deeply concerning. Trump means to end democracy, and this new piece in Time, which is
lengthy but deserving of your time, confirms that conclusion.

Project 2025 is available online for all to see, billed as “Building now for a conservative victory through policy,
personnel, and training.” The website reveals the Project is coordinated through the conservative Heritage
Foundation, helmed by three smiling white men and inviting people who land there to sign up so they can stay
in touch.

Some of this, to be clear, is about traditional conservative policy. Other pieces—like the idea of transforming the
ranks of career public servants into party loyalists—are disturbing. And over it all lingers the question: how much
worse do these cold policy prescriptions look in Donald Trump’s hands?


Appears this TIME article is warning us not to vote for Fascism. I'll gonna buy as many copies as I can find and
give them away to select individuals. " Read this great stuff about how easily TSF is getting back in the
White House" With him on the cover, Rs are dying to read about how great he is!

Beware of luxurious hotels.

A lady decided to give herself a big treat for her 70th birthday by staying overnight in a really nice luxurious hotel..

When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $250.00. She demanded to know why the charge was so high "I agree it's a nice hotel, but the rooms aren't worth $250..00 for just an overnight stay - I didn't even have breakfast!"
The clerk told her that $250.00 is the 'standard rate,' and breakfast had been included had she wanted it.

She insisted on speaking to the Manager.

The Manager appeared and, forewarned by the desk clerk, announced: "This hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center which are available for use." "But I didn't use them." ''Well, they are here, and you could have."

He went on to explain that she could also have seen one of the in-hotel shows for which they were so famous.
"We have the best entertainers from all over the world performing here."
"But I didn't go to any of those shows.." She Pleaded.

"Well, we have them, and you could have." was the reply.

No matter what amenity the Manager mentioned, she replied,
"But I didn't use it!" and the Manager countered with his standard response.

After several minutes discussion, and with the Manager still unmoved, she decided to pay, wrote a check and gave it to him.

The Manager was surprised when he looked at the check.
"But Madam, this check is for only $50.00" "That's correct" she replied "I charged you $200.00 for sleeping with me."

"But I didn't sleep with you madam!" said the manager

"Well, too bad, I was here, and you could have."

If & when the next Presidential Debate happens

We should demand that the moderator's only functions will be as time and peace keepers.
(Maybe allow them a few questions.)

No more asking predetermined questions that were handed out prior to the debate so candidates can
brush up on a subject.

A moderator would never ask " If elected, is your goal to be President for life?"
"Why did you destroy all the transcripts of your meetings with Putin?"
"Why didn't you call out the National Guard on Jan 6th?"
"Is it true you wanted protesters shot so you could walk across the street and hold a bible up?"
"Why did so many of our undercover secret agents disappear right after you asked for a list of them?"
And the list goes on & on, but you get the idea.

Why not get down & dirty in the mud pit, watch 2 guys ask and answer questions only from each other?
Let's see who can think on his feet and is knowledgeable about things necessary to be Commander in Chief.

Plus we know TSF would never agree to these terms, he'd demand prior knowledge of the softball questions
he'd be asked. Then we'd have a huge talking point... "Why is he afraid to debate?"
