These are unreal times.

Hypocrisy is the only reality that’s been consistent.

Agreed–as so many people keep saying, when are we going to wake up from this nightmare of a presidency?

We have complete Repub/Trump control of all branches of our government now. And Trump being lauded by the MSM for bombing on a whim?

I just don’t understand republican thinking. When a democrat changes his or her mind, takes a different stance on an issue, or says one thing and does another, then that person is a liar. Yet, all of the things that repubs have said and/or done lately have all been a complete 180 degrees from what they have said or done in the past, and the base just shrugs their shoulders. If nothing else, this week has proven beyond a doubt that IOIYAR!

I think reality is broken. That needs to be repaired before infrastructure…it is the most basic infrastructure.

glenn – When a Dem changes their mind, as Obama did about bombing Syria, they are “weak” and “flip flop”. When Republicans are impulsive like Trump, they are “flexible”.

glenn – We have to live with a broken reality for at least a year and a half, until the 2018 elections…at least.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad–or “strong”, as so many have said these past two days. As in, “we no longer have a ‘pussy’ in the WH.” When those same people, including the one who just ordered the bombing, said over and over and over again, that we should not be bombing!

We have to gather news proportionately. We also must not confuse opinion, with fact. I got a good bit to say about the strike on the Syrian air base. first, I think it’s a yuge wag the dog scenario.

glenn – And what were the real results of the bombing? The airfield and the planes are all still fine!
AdLib 2 hours ago
Hey everyone!My real fear is that Trump will begin to enjoy showing off his power as much as he likes to grab women.Hang on

FD–my understanding of a “wag the dog” scenario is that it really didn’t happen; that is is made up. I believe that the bombing was not a “wag the dog” scenario, just a distraction.

Are you sure, glenn?
Fuzzy Dunlop

Sorry, that didn’t come out correctly. This bombing is more than “just a distraction”, it’s a fucking disaster!

I wish the FBI would hurry up and prove a Russia connection so the could impeach this dangerous man

glenn – We can’t overlook the possibility that this was orchestrated. It looked that way, all the bombing yet next to no real destruction and Russia and Syria were warned well ahead of time. That’s how you do military strikes that are legit? Warn everyone before you launch and avoid real destruction?
AdLib 2 hours ago
I think Assad wanted to test Trump, and Putin didn’t want Trump to do any real damage. Crazy? A Bit!
Fuzzy Dunlop

think Russia investigation!

Beatlex – Isn’t that the real takeaway for Trump now? Everyone loves him when he launches impulsive military attacks? What happens with North Korea now?
AdLib 2 hours ago
FD–First of all, let me say that I don’t believe the bombing is made up; I believe it’s real. I just didn’t categorize it as a “wag the dog” scenario because of what I thought a WTD was. However, my bad–I just looked it up and you are correct; it is and was intended to change the narrative. So, thanks for making me look it up and understand more fully what it means.

Ad–and remember how trump always says that he will not tell people what he’s going to do militarily? And, of course, what does he do? Tell people, mostly the people he’s going to bomb, that he’s going to bomb them! What a surprise!
glenn

My pleasure, glenn. Only an inquisitive (smart) person would have done so.

We have an impulsive brat running North Korea,and a self indulgent boy in the White House,what could go wrong??
Beatlex

2 hours ago
glenn – Wag the Dog refers to a contrived politically beneficial scenario where the public is deceived into thinking all of it is legit. Assad definitely used chemical warfare so that’s legit but the appearance of the U.S. attack sure could be purely political and nto as represented.
AdLib 2 hours ago
FD–yes, think russian investigation, indeed. He has thrown so much shit against the wall that didn’t stick; so let’s go to the heavy artillery….literally.
glenn

Beatlex – We’ve probably got a year before the Senate Intelligence hearings complete themselves…and who knows what’s going on with the FBI investigation? Comey threw the election, will he really take down his preferred president?
AdLib 2 hours ago
Beatlex–the descriptions of the leaders could be interchanged, and they still apply. Both of them are impulsive brats and self-indulgent!
