For a very long time, Yes, We Have No Pajamas was the #1 most popular post. No longer. There are 2 ahead of it, both political in topic. This no longer surprises me...the politics of the time are dire; people on both sides are paying attention to the developing reality.
Especially on Monday, July 16th, 2018. Remember that date. It's the one that will go into history books. And not for a good reason.
No other president in the history of these here United States, ever sucked up to an autocrat/dictator they way Feckless Leader did today. It's just never happened. He called our most staunch allies, "foes," and the Chinese and Russian dictators our good friends. He's already kissed up to Kim Jung-Un, so I suppose his next adventure in boot-licking will be a visit to Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines.
Anyone remember Neville Chamberlain? How he was excoriated by the people of Britain and the world for attempting to appease Hitler with the Sudetenland concession? I could not think of a more recent example of public fury until I got to Hanoi Jane. Now, let me just say I was never a great fan of this action even when I was marching against the war. Was she a war criminal for going there? I don't think so. Fonda didn't give anything to the North Vietnamese except her opinion. She had no state secrets to sell, she had no tariffs to deploy, no bombs to drop. She was a celebrity with a mouth and that's it. The only power she had was that which we gave her by jumping up and down. And she was called a traitor over and over and even by some today. I get it.
Any other politician who attempted to ally this country with Russia and China away from NATO and the rest of the western world would have been pilloried by the GOP. Today, there are plenty of GOP followers who are sucking this right up. They think this is all okay. I have one thing to say to them all:
Когда-то КГБ, всегда КГБ. Учить русский; вам это понадобится.
Can you imagine what those same conservative hot-rocks would be screaming if it had been President Obama standing there trashing the country to the world. Or Hillary Clinton? Give me a break. What a bunch of hypocritical troglodytes.
On that horrible note, here is something completely inane:
It was an innocent, friendly kind of social question: What did you get for Christmas? There was no intent to mock, tease, or otherwise deride anything about said gift. But I could not help but howl when he told me “jammies …and flannel sheets with snowmen on them.”
