I have no idea how we set about recovering from this man after he's gone. The global American Gilded Age is going to end as a result of him.

I'm pretty sure that ended in the 1930s with the great depression.

My opinion, it started with the post WWII industrial bubble when we had the nationwide infrastructure and labor pool to take advantage of all of the resources we had basically lying on top of the ground.  The whole nation was like the gold rush.  Remember social studies and reading those quotes about the first gold panners coming to the NW and being able to just about reach into the water and scoop out a handful of gold?  Exaggeration, but not that much.  We had that for everything.  And we used it up.  And for a few decades the massive MASSIVE piggy bank we built up from doing so was letting us keep living the high life by plying finances and trade.  Having used up the resources, and dropped the ball on keeping the finances rolling, we're going to be about ground floor even with the rest of the modern world moving forward, as more and more of the world continues to modernize.  We've got a pretty good hold on the artisnal weapons of mass destruction and war planes market, but I'm not sure that's really a big enough market to support the whole nation despite how rich it's making a few individuals.

I feel bad for the South Koreans.  They're counting on our help to fend off the Norks, and the White House can't even rattle a saber without stabbing itself just getting it out of the sheath.

We need to start keeping a running tally of all the shiat the orange menace is completely and utterly ignorant of.

He doesn't know how bills work.
He doesn't know the law.
He doesn't know where his own military assets are.
He doesn't know that healthcare is complicated.
He doesn't know that diplomacy is complicated.
He doesn't know that military operations are complicated.
He doesn't know Lincoln was a republican.

What else? I can't keep track anymore...

I think he's thinking about the Pax Americana which is a thing but won't be if Trump keeps demolishing our international reputation.

We will. Hell, being not a warmongering Republican was enough to win Obama the nobel peace prize before he could do anything.

The world community tends to view the US by its leaders. We have respect on the world stage when we are lead by intelligent, competent people and ridiculed when we elect morans.

If Best Korea was threatening Worst Korea and nobody else, I'd say to let them deal with it.  Since they're silly enough to be threatening the USA, I don't really give a fark what Worst Korea says.

I'm a vet (not retired, though) and laugh so hard at this "president" that I almost cry. I can't imagine any sane, current service-member actually liking this guy. I'd be AWOL in a heartbeat if I had to get into harms way because of stupid shiat.

I want someone to publically point blank ask Donald these questions:

Donald,  How does a bill become a law, describe the steps and stages.

Donald, What are the 2 Branches of Government
(This is obviously a trick questions, You can sub out the 2, for a 4.)

Donald, please name at least 3 countries that surround Iran.

Donald please point on this nameless world map where Turkey is.

If he is cleanly and thoroughly rejected, it will be easy to pin the blame on his corpse so long as the people who replace him represent a clear and unmitigated rebuke of everything he stands for.

But more than likely the next President will be Ivanka who will turn the incompetence up to 11

I like the idea that we can just tell the world we are sending a huge carrier group and not think that ic can be tracked by satellite. The wake on a carrier is so pronounce it can be seen for days.

What I'm hearing is "I support this because Trump supports it," which is a very reasonable and smart position.

We could easily say that your generation didn't fix the problem, so we won't either. And what prior serviceman would advocate for the tens of thousands of casualties that the 2ID and others will take in the process?

We aren't vulnerable to North Korea's military, while South Korea is poised to get bombarded with artillery that will kill tens or hundreds of thousands in minutes if NK decides to go hot. Swinging our dick is easy when it isn't in our backyard, but playing fast, loose and angry will get a lot of people, our allies killed. Don't be so farking thick.

How many of those were covered by School House Rock?  Sit him down in front of the teevee and have him watch "I'm Just a Bill" a thousand times and then give him a quiz.  If he doesn't pass he can't president for a month.

Yes, because anyone who spends time in the politics tab knows that I'm such a huge supporter of Cheeto Benito.

It would be so nice if people stopped with the "everything my side does is good and everything the other side does is bad" approach to politics and started evaluating each issue on its own merits.  I know though, your protective bubbles and safe spaces don't have those options available.

The Electoral Collage is BS.  It has picked the popular vote loser only 4 times prior to Donald in US history, each time the results were a disaster, the last person it picked over the Popular vote was George Bush jr.

but but without it places like California would always pic the president...

 If we go by popular vote then EVERYONE's vote matters, flyover votes matter, city votes matter, politicians can't just pander to certain states.

A person who understands that losing tens of thousands of people in battle is better than doing nothing and losing millions down the road.  Just imagine if the world would have come together and put a stop to Hitler before he kicked off his tour of Europe.  Would 10 millions deaths defeating Hitler before he got rolling not have been better than the 60 million that ended up being killed in WWII?

I have a lot of friends that actually saw combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Not one of them is interested in so much as even going to the range.
