There will be a lot of pieces to put back together, all at once, when he is gone.


Can the Republic Recover from Donald Trump?
here will be a lot of pieces to put back together, all at once, when he is gone.

Yates asked the assembled: What is going to happen when this administration is finally, blessedly over? It is a very good question and there is no very good answer to it.

This is a rhetorical question. Yates, and Charlie Pierce both are smart enough to figure out the answer.

It isn't Trump that's the worst problem. At some point he will be gone. The real problem is that the worst of the worst Americans, the Kochs, have finally captured the Executive branch in the same way they have successfully captured the Congress and state government.  It's game over folks. Checkmate.

Will you vote for President Pence, or President Scott Walker?  Or maybe President Greg Abbott.  Maybe Bob McDonnell of Virginia will run, now that his several criminal convictions have been reversed. They all know where to get the money. America's good Christian community will support them all the way.

They will lower taxes for any unfortunate point O-1 Percenters still left with a tax bill. They will make it legal to mine for coal where your house sits. They will drill for oil in Coral Bay, and bomb Turkey.[/size]

The USA is a disguised military dictatorship. Military dictatorships are the worse kind of parasite on an economy. Their main products are death and pollution.

We are toast.

 

You are absolutely correct AG. Because Trump and/or Clinton and/or Pence and/or any others that Eddie just named are merely symptoms of the lack of morals and integrity in this whole society which no longer is unified by any values but the worship of money and hedonism and selfishness. The entire world is being murdered and destroyed by these Satanists. They are Satanists because they are out to wallow in the destruction of everything even including themselves. Can God prevail? Or must he start over?

If God is God, then He/She/It cannot do anything but prevail. Most readers here at the Doomstead Diner either are atheists who disdain the "psychololigal weak minded crutch" of worshipping the Deity OR do not really give a fork as long as said Deity does not require worship and obedience to any moral code. The former claim to be "ethical".  Their only "ethics" based behavioral code is "might equals right" (Orwell lives!). The latter are an egotistical bunch that cannot, and will not, accept any constraints on their behavior by some uppity Deity that never asked them permission to be born into this plane of existence.

I KNOW that God IS God. I may never prevail, but God will prevail. Though for many years I was angrily frustrated about the lack of justice in human society, I now finally realize and accept the fact that no human has the mental equipment to question God's apparent lack of name takin' and ass kickin' on this planet.

Yeah, we've been trying to do that for a long, long time (see below).

Jeremiah 12 King James Version (KJV)

1 Righteous art thou, O Lord, when I plead with thee: yet let me talk with thee of thy judgments: Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?

2 Thou hast planted them, yea, they have taken root: they grow, yea, they bring forth fruit: thou art near in their mouth, and far from their reins.


Jeremiah was thoroughly bent out of shape when he wrote this. The next few passages has him asking for God to slaughter the bad guys with all sorts of colorful blood and guts mayhem.

3 But thou, O Lord, knowest me: thou hast seen me, and tried mine heart toward thee: pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and prepare them for the day of slaughter.

4 How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? the beasts are consumed, and the birds; because they said, He shall not see our last end.


I've been there with that. Many readers here, whether they worship themselves or the Law of Conservation of Energy  ;D, also want to kill off all the bad guys.

True, blessed are those folks who hunger and thirst for justice. So, I will not judge harshly those who want to kill off all the bad people making life difficult to miserable for the rest of us.

Their logic is sound as long as there is no afterlife.

I firmly believe there is an afterlife. I firmly believe this portion of human existence is an embryonic proving ground.

What comes after is as different as a majestic Sequoia tree is from a tiny seed.

Due to the inherent limitations of  a seed versus a tree, I can understand why so many other seeds around here think I am full of horse poopy.

Another analogy to the self-limiting modus vivendi of these seeds is Plato's Cave. I've seen what's on the outside of that cave. Nothing that goes on inside the cave compares to it. The cynical wishful thinkers that firmly believe that this cave of shadow boxing baloney is all there is are DEAD wrong.

I used to be just like them. But I finally got to a place where the real water of life cleared things up for me.


I still get depressed and I still rant about injustice, but I know all this is temporary. God IS God. I am not now, or ever will be, God. My job is to obey He/She/It, whether I like it or not. Seeds should never presume to know what it is like to be a Sequoia.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.. -- Psalm 34:6
