Even allowing for the Trump factor, I find that hard to believe!

Perhaps an example of the need for clarity when making evil plans?

<grins> That is actually easier to believe - and possibly more worrying!

The press report about the lights.
Real fact or 'alternative' fact? Who knows?

Does anyone remember Elizabeth the first?
Employed Privateers. The rest of the world called them Pirates. An other word is profiteers.
One thing in common. They didn't care about harm to others for profit.
But She didn't allow them political power.

Now look at Trump.

Don't forget history.

Be scared
Be very scared
This man can be a Hitler on steroids

But he should ask for a better barber first.
Haven't seen sillier hair since Ken Dodd. Or maybe Wurzzel Gummage?

Yeah, lovely girl! I went to school with her. Not seen her for a while though.

As for Trumps' hair, well you know how it is. Since that group of radicalised fundamentalist Beliebers carried out the Springfield Barber Shop Massacre you just can't get a decent haircut anywhere!

At the stroke of midnight on Friday, followers of witchcraft across the US performed a mass spell designed to remove the president from office.

There is method in there. Secure what matters. Increase in spending for the army and for support services for veterans.
A good emperor knows that if you look after the praetorian guard, your chances of getting a knife in the back decreases rapidly.

Now we just have to find a solution for all those pesky judges......

His chances of accomplishing that are not good either.

There is no cure for Trump's kind of madness. My only hope is a cure for those who voted for him, small chance though that may be. I keep recalling scenes from the movie, 2010: The Year We Make Contact.

He has an agenda. But this isn't a corporate take over. When one commands a country one must be prepared for the unexpected coming at you from several different angles.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating and the proof of this president is his reaction to disaster. There lies the test. Wouldn't it be an ignominious end if we were twittered into Armageddon?

A vote on US President Donald Trump's healthcare bill has been withdrawn at the last minute after it failed to gain enough support to pass in Congress.
