    We should remember that Trump was a career financial criminal, and a serial rapist, BEFORE his syphilis ravaged his tiny little brain. And, oh, yeah, there’s that whole traitor thing, partly before, partly during, and partly after the aforementioned brain damage.

    ^^It’s another form of dementia when people hear and see things that are not reality and then defend or give their support to those illusions and delusions. It is prevalent in MAGAt world, but as Elias tells us mental health experts will not address it because they know that irrational anger and violence is part of the sickness.

    You don’t get the grand plan: dementia in Trump is one of his more desirable features – for those who plan to be the powers behind the (literal?) throne. It would make Trump all the more malleable. In the first term, these “advisors” and party leaders let him have too much leeway. This is a mistake that won’t be repeated in the Trump second administration.

    Look to see who will be Trump’s vice-presidential running mate. If it’s someone who to a certain extent reminds you of Dick Cheney during the Bush 44 administration, …

    America is sicker than the orange puppet. How can presidential elections between such vastly different candidates keep coming out so close?

    Actually most of that is the money, but the money wouldn’t work if the elections weren’t broken. Does it matter if the primary blame is with the voters or the rich “investors” who are bribing the politicians?

    My bigger take is that about 30% of the people hate freedom. Another chunk, probably the majority of them, doesn’t care much, but they don’t want to work too hard at being free. The last group does want freedom, but they belong in two camps. One group thinks freedom is zero-sum and are determined to actively take away other people’s freedoms to increase their own. The second group thinks it’s a win-win thing, and more freedom for everyone gives them more freedom, too. (I think I’m in that last group, but the evidence seems to show we are losing out…)

We have records and everything), and the list goes on.

    I hope that one day Elias takes a look at the national epidemic of mental illness the American people are suffering together.

    American culture is mentally ill. We are suffering massive PTSD. As a nation we make poor decisions. We are both childish and immature. We allow ourselves to be led by the unfit, the unqualified and the unstable.

    It used to be that Patriotism was enough to unite us. Now that has been subverted into a twisted lie tying us to immoral, selfish monsters.

    It used to be that religion was a connection we shared. We didn’t all worship the same way, but we shared a common spirituality. Now a force of Evangelical supremacy is growing, threatening to tear us apart.

    Republicans and Democrats used to share the belief that the important thing was to “get things done”. Now all they want to do is “win”.

    The American Dream of family, home and career is being destroyed. There is no stability that we can build upon. Our hopes and dreams consist of making it to the end of the month. We don’t invest in the future. We spend to satisfy ourselves now.

    We are no longer people. We are merely a commodity to make the rich and wealthy richer and more wealthy.

    Trump has always had a paranoia about cognitive dementia. His father, Fred, suffered from it.

    DJT’s increasing dementia is only exacerbated by all his other mental health problems.

    Regarding Biden’s speech. Most people don’t realize that Biden was a severe stutterer and worked hard to control his speech impediment. Most of his so-called “gaffs” are related to this impairment, not to any mental devolvement.

    When the English captured New Netherlands (New York) they were displeased with all the Dutch speakers) When the Germans began arriving in large numbers, after the failure of the 1848 Revolutions, there were many English speakers who were less than enthused. The Germans kept speaking German. They formed German Churches, published German newspapers, drank that nasty German drink ~beer.My point being is that many immigrants faced hostility & distain from the English speaking mainstream.

He handled himself very well, even when disrespectful people (like you, I get you don’t like him but he is our president) yelled at him from the crowd. Find me a speech, (or more accurately rant) from Donald Trump that does not involve whining about how unfair it is he got caught in his crimes, and maybe I’ll think about listening to you.

    In all of my years, 94 of ‘em, never have I encountered such a personal fire eating violent hatred such as herein displayed by Mr. Trudeau. That such cruel and bitter (vitriolic) criticism (near suicidal) can generate itself within the heart and mind of any human being is cause for concern if contagious enough to affect an entire cabal with … a bad intention. I have personally looked upon Mr. Trudeau’s endeavors as pure, genius. Maybe the time has come to reevaluate my opinion.

    I really do not give a damm whether or not I live much longer. I have had my “run”. However, I firmly believe with all of MY heart that I will bask in the reversing of a corrupt and dangerous cabal currently leading my USA.

    To me, it’s similar to finding the recipe that hits the umami mark. Starting with the desired outcome, select the freshest ingredients, combined in the right proportions and baked, fried or cured to as near as possible to produce the desired outcome. It is a harder process and luckily we have a few good chefs to help out. I like the League of Women Voters each election.
