He’ll be 78 in 2024. My question is, why do we keep electing old dudes? We need to start putting in Gen X at the oldest. Anyone old enough to president, but isn’t yet 65 or 70 would best, IMO. As for the dotard, I’m really hoping he goes to prison before 2024. If not, I don’t know if the MAGAts are numerous enough to put the dotard back into office again. If that happens though, we can kiss the U.S. goodbye.
What I want to know is this - what does it say about the US, or the world in general, that on the same day the person representing the worst in humanity makes this announcement that could affect the entire world, on that same day people who represent the best in humanity launch a remarkable craft to the moon that’s the start of something that could affect humanity as well?
I discovered this great description of Napoleon’s march back in 2016. Trump’s “march” wasn’t quite as good, but it seems like an appropriate comparison. I don’t think he has a chance, but that’s what everyone said in 2016.
For old times sake, here it is:
The French newspapers which, in 1815, were subject to the censor, announced the departure of Bonaparte from Elba, his progress through France, and his entry into Paris in the following ingenious manner:
— 9th March, the Anthropophagus has quitted his den
— 10th, the Corsican Ogre has landed at Cape Juan
— 11th, the Tiger has arrived at Gap
— 12th, the Monster slept at Grenoble
— 13th, the Tyrant has passed through Lyons
— 14th, the Usurper is directing his steps towards Dijon, but the brave and loyal Burgundians have risen en masse and surrounded him on all sides
— 18th, Bonaparte is only sixty leagues from the capital; he has been fortunate enough to escape the hands of his pursuers
— 19th, Bonaparte is advancing with rapid steps, but he will never enter Paris
— 20th, Napoleon will, tomorrow, be under our ramparts
— 21st, the Emperor is at Fontainbleau
— 22nd, His Imperial and Royal Majesty, yesterday evening, arrived at the Tuileries, amidst the joyful acclamations of his devoted and faithful subjects.
I would just like Republicans to actually come out and say what they want. They cry about “not being heard”, but when I ask, they don’t talk, they speak in code, of “values”. What values?
Tucker Carlson recently asked, rhetorically, “why do we want diversity?” He’s an idiot, but he knows the question plays to his audience, because they don’t know. A liberal might also have trouble coming with up an answer, but there is an answer, lots of reasons.
I’d like to ask Tucker, “why do we want values from 100 years ago? what traditions are good, and why?” He’d just look at me and say it’s obvious and something about America being dominant during WWII or something.
