It's kind of quaint that people still think the US president is the leader of the free world.  The last one who fulfilled that role was Bill Clinton.  Obama could have played that role if he wasn't continuously obstructed but in the end, he didn't. Guantanamo is still not closed down.

The last thing Trump charged headlong into, in a wild foaming-at-the-mouth frenzy, was ... best not to say

All I keep imagining is Hannity chasing an elderly incontinent dog around trying to get it to stay on the newspaper when it has to take a piss...

Trump launched a stream-of-consciousness attack on everything from windmills to Hillary Clinton.

If you still think it's a "free world" in America-land try protesting.

Yeah, it's always been pretty much a self-appointed title.

Fun fact!

The word 'berserk' comes from 'bjorn' and 'sark' from Old Norse, meaning 'bear shirt'.

But a less known fact is the root word for 'bear'/'birn'/bjorn' is the same word for 'brown', since the real name of the animal( 'Arktos' as in arctic, land of bears) was taboo as it might call the danger, metaphorically speaking.

So the real etymology is 'brownshirt'.

That turned out less fun than I promised. Sorry.

I protested a ton this year and am doing okay. Sure, there were a lot of shiatty things that happened to protesters, but there was also a ton of protests that didn't end up in clouds of tear gas.

Free as in beer?  Nope.

Free as in speech?  Not really.

Free as in loose wingnut?

Dubya had hundreds of thousands of foreign people Freedomed to death. Trump is Freedumbing hundreds of thousands of US citizens to death.

Don't worry subby, Trump isn't the leader of the free world, so there's that.

If the Chinese and Russians are going to be grabbing ballots, wouldn't that constitute a hostile act by a foreign country?  Isn't the Command in Chief responsible for defending the US against hostile acts by foreign countries?

We're massively insecure like that. If you don't believe it, try and convince the average American that the NFL, NBA, or MLB champion isn't the "World Champion".

And the only reason he cares anything about windmills is because they "blocked the view" at his golf course in Scotland.

geoduck42: And the only reason he cares anything about windmills is because they "blocked the view" at his golf course in Scotland.


Yes, but you have to admit, because he cared, he learned all about them. For example, did you know the noise from windmills causes cancer?  You didn't, did you?  Because you don't care about windmills enough to learn, like Trump has.

I hate him so much.

Honestly, I'd always assumed that that was because we spent so much money poaching talent from other leagues that it was inconceivable that any other league's champion would be blown out by ours.

"President" is a privilege, not a responsibility. Haven't you been paying attention these past few years?

I've been protesting for 20-some years and 90% of them got teargassed.

Gonna say, that shiat's sunk with the necklace down to the Titanic.

The US has lost its dominance on the global stage, and ain't getting it back soon, if ever. Farking Great Britain has lapped us at this point back into power.
