Trump + Missiles And Bombs = Well, It Can't Be Very Good

Trump just said this,

President Trump praised the attack as a "very, very successful mission." He indicated that he had given the Pentagon a free hand to use the weapon as part of his vow to step up the war on Islamic State. 
"We have given them total authorization and that’s what they’re doing and frankly that’s why they’ve been so successful lately,” he told reporters at the White House. “If you look at what’s happened over the last eight weeks and compare that really to what’s happened over the past eight years, you’ll see there’s a tremendous difference, tremendous difference.”
WTF?!  Hell, you said the generals were dumb and you knew more than they did, so why did you give them control?  If you were in charge, there would be world peace by now.

Is it part of your clever plan to show the American people just how stupid the generals really are compared to you?  I'll bet you knew that the missile strike against that Syrian airbase, 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles @ 1.87 million a pop wouldn't accomplish anything.  You could spend about 35 weekends at Mar-A-Lago for what them stupid generals wasted on that mission.

And the MOAB drop, I guess the generals just wanted to see a big boom, cause ISIS is pretty much a done deal in Afghanistan.

It may be tempting to see this as evidence that the US is increasingly worried about ISIS’s influence in the country. But the truth appears to be closer to the opposite: ISIS’s forces have dropped by about 75 percent since their peak in late 2015, and the group has lost significant territory since then.
“By NATO's own estimates, it's something like 800 fighters countrywide, a big drop over past year,” Colin Cookman, an Afghanistan expert at the United States Institute of Peace, tweeted.
Brilliant move, I'm sure all the generals will be begging you to take charge after this.

Seriously, the missiles and bomb didn't do near the damage that the cheerleading media and politicians did.  Imagine, making this simpleton believe he did something good, now he's conditioned to believe that bombing and missiles are all he needs to get some praise.  Horrible precedent you guys set.

Next up, maybe:  Can we afford the Trump family?


Arkansas Executions, An Early Christmas for Conservatives.

Now, I'm not saying these guys aren't guilty or even that they don't deserve death, however I am saying that governments that kill their own is not a good thing, for obvious reasons.  I live right next door to Arkansas in Oklahoma and I have noticed that conservative government officials seem to exhibit a tad too much glee when execution time nears.

But conservatives certainly don't want to be considered squishy liberals, so one way to prove their he-manliness to their fellow conservatives is by killing things and parroting what they hear on Fox "News" to each other to show their supposed intellectuality to each other.

Now as for the "killing things" part, I understand it because when I was a kid, I'd get off the bus, walk down the driveway, go in the front door, throw down my books, grab my shotgun or .22, head out the back door and kill things and I killed many things, I thought this was a rite of passage, something you had to do to be considered a man, but I was young and incredibly stupid.

Arkansas Governor Hutchinson and Attorney General Rutledge aren't young, but they are very, very conservative.  Here's what the Governor had to say,

"I have a responsibility to the voters, I have a responsibility to my oath of office, but I also have responsibility to a higher power, God and eternity, and I understand that," he said.
 "I feel comfortable in my understanding of my responsibilities both in terms of faith and scripture and in terms of as governor.
I'm sure he's referring to that passage in the New Testament where Jesus says, "Damned straight, kill 'em all!  You're a bunch of pussies if you don't."

Attorney General Leslie Rutledge who describes herself as a "Christian, pro-life, gun carrying, woman" which, no doubt, caused the most erections in Arkansas  since Sarah Palin, is just all a-holes and elbows making sure the Lord's work is done to send these cons to hell.

You know, I believe it would be a good idea if we just let these good Christians do it like they did in the good old days, bring these guys to the state capitol, order a couple of truckloads of bricks, charge twenty bucks a brick and just stone the hell out of 'em.

You're pussies if you don't.

Next up:  Trump +  missiles and bombs = can't be good


Donald J. Trump and Kim Jong Un or Twiddle Dumb and Twiddle Dumber.

Each started out as spoiled rich kids, pampered and groomed to believe that they are a higher order of human being than most.  They both live in a world devoid of reality, actual reality.  Trump's reality is one framed by Fox "News", Limbaugh, Alex Jones and anyone he talked to last.  Kim seems to believe that reality is what ever he wants it to be.  And both head nations that have nuclear capabilities. 

And they each owe Russia for their current positions.
