"Okay, I'm the Beast From the Abyss, the man of sin, the son of perdition but I am not a witch and the Democrats' impeachment is a witch hunt," Trump declared as his hair smoldered from Satan's fiery chuckles.
Customs officials have discounted witness claims that he was walking on the surface of the river as he crossed it. "The Rio is very low at the point this person crossed, it may have appeared he was walking on water but it was just an optical illusion," explained ICE spokesperson, Leticia Zamarripa.
Over the past three decades since the early 1970’s, there has been the deliberate manipulation of significant segments of the population, most of them undoubtedly sincere believing people, around the ideology of ‘born-again’ evangelical Christian Fundamentalism to create what we now refer to as the Christian Right or Dominionists. Within the broad spectrum of fundamentalist denominations there are some currents which are particularly alarming. Sarah Palin comes out of such a milieu.
TRUMP: "Look, who is this guy to be quoting The Bible to me?! For every Corinthian he names, I can name two!"
In a nation that lectures other nations around the world about human rights violations, it is almost laughable that MY basic rights and dignity should even be a subject for debate!
As Bertrand Russell said, “The opinions that are held with passion are always those for which no good ground exists; indeed the passion is the measure of the holders lack of rational conviction."
"By removing the need for doctors to be licensed, we could get all kinds of new and exciting approaches in medicine! Why not let a barista do liposuction? A jackhammer operator give a colonoscopy? Or a clown be a brain surgeon?"
Trump's rhetoric is the stuff of Nazi nationalism, demonizing all those who follow a specific religion, just substituting Muslims for Jews. In doing this, he is attempting to sew a swastika onto the American flag.
To address the health hazards that watching Trump's speech tonight represents, such as "Screamer's Throat", "Tv Puncher's Knuckle" and "Exploding Head Syndrome", PlanetPOV will be hosting a sane and live chat.
The irony is that such people use the fruits of science daily, such as televisions, cell phones and the internet to wage their war against that evil practice of science.
