I read this quote today. It referred to the stock market. I agree, but I think it also applies to all other actions by Trump and his wrecking crew, including Pompeo's bullshit about the West Bank Israeli "settlements" being "legal".

I'm sure you've already seen where Bill Palmer has Pompeo ""resigning."


Yes, I read that bit of wishful thinking by Palmer. Pompeo is a Kochroach, something that is like the roof for Palmer (over his head). Consequently, Palmer's grasp of the consequences of Trump this or that do not take that greater (i.e. US Government by Hydrocarbon Hellspawn) reality into account.

Trump is a symptom of the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn ROT destroying the U.S. government and dooming the biosphere as a Capitalists 'R' US bonus.

However, that does not mean the U.S. Economy won't be eaten alive by the Chinese economy prior to the full brunt of the Sixth Mass Extinction from the unabated (Capitalism caused) degradation of the biosphere. Palmer would vigorously disagree with me, since he thinks everything is gonna be just peachy if Trump and Pence go away and the Democrats take the White House. That is wishful thinking.

About 500 U.S. oligarchs calling virtually ALL the shots evidences that US foreign and domestic policy really IS GOVERNED BY CAPITALIST WISHFUL THINKING that is taking us, eventually, to Catastrophic Climate Chaos doom, but much sooner, to economic and political destruction.

The interconnectedness of all the life forms in our biosphere is something the Capitalists 'R' US studiously ignore (to our peril). Any part of the web of life that is damaged degrades all the other parts. This is Ecology 101.

Of course the 🐉 chemical, 🐍 mining and 🦕🦖 hydrocarbon hellspawn corporations have never been able to wrap their greedy, profit over people and planet heads around that basic, irrefutable reality.

I remember an old saying from the early days of environmental activism in the USA: "We all live downstream." We sure do. 😱

In regard to any and all industrial civilization activiies that allow pollution 😈 "externalities" for short term profit, we need to change NIMBY (not in my back yard) to NOPE, not on planet earth.

All that said, as pathetic a wish as it is, I hold out hope for our country through a Sanders Presidency, provided both houses of Congress vote to support his policies. Again, I do not expect Palmer, a champion of all things Pelosi, to agree with me on that. However, Palmer is quite right about how dangerous Trump is for the USA. I applaud all his efforts to expose Trump's chicanery. That is why I post much of his impeachment commentary in this forum (Any port in the storm, and all that).

I yield the floor to Paul Street:

SNIPPET:

We need Trump and Pence out now, not some time next year. The way to make that happen is with a mass movement that will not only sweep him from power but challenge the richly bipartisan racist, sexist, imperial and eco-cidal class rule system that hatched the Trump regime in the first place.
