Trump Death Cult Thursday

1a

They are the extremists. If you need proof, look no further than the Afghan capital, Kabul, where the latest wave of suicide bombings has proven devastating. Recently, for instance, a fanatic set off his explosives among a group of citizens lining up outside a government office to register to vote in upcoming elections. At least 57 people died, including 22 women and eight children. ISIS’s branch in Afghanistan proudly took responsibility for that callous act — but one not perhaps quite as callous as the ISIS suicide bomber who, in August 2016, took out a Kurdish wedding in Turkey, missing the bride and groom but killing at least 54 people and wounding another 66. Twenty-two of the dead or injured were children and the bomber may even have been a child himself.

Such acts are extreme, which by definition makes the people who commit them extremists. The same is true of those like the “caliph” of the now-decimated Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who order, encourage, or provide the ideological framework for such acts — a judgment few in this country (or most other places on the planet) would be likely to dispute. In this century, from Kabul to Baghdad, Paris to San Bernardino, such extreme acts of indiscriminate civilian slaughter have only multiplied. Though relatively commonplace, each time such a slaughter occurs, it remains an event of horror and is treated as such in the media. If committed by Islamists against Americans or Europeans, suicide attacks of this sort are given 24/7 coverage here, often for days at a time.

    Human beings suck. Brains still dwell in the Dark Ages, no respect for life. It’s a 50/50 world but the bad guys always have the upper hand because they are bad guys. Torture, incarcerate, kill, kill, kill. The half or the population who have empathy and a thirst for justice ALWAYS have an uphill fight. This is why we won’t be able to last much longer and the earth will be grateful when we’re gone and peace settles in.

    Typical stupid human tricks. Give them a perfectly good planet and see what they do (to) with it. Who thought up this wacko experiment anyway, Off-Worlders? They figured out the ending long ago, we will self-extinguish ourselves as the planetary parasites we are.

    Until then it will be Assholes vs. Good Guys.

    Donald J. Trump

    @realDonaldTrump
    As everybody is aware, the past Administration has long been asking for three hostages to be released from a North Korean Labor camp, but to no avail. Stay tuned!

    2 of the 3 Americans were detained in 2017, when Trump was president, so the Obama jab makes no sense. Another case of Trump disrespecting his base — assuming people won’t know the facts or won’t care.

      Daily total is 51 minutes. Much cooler going home; still warming up with another sweater underneath the main jacket.

      Day 5: 160+51=211 minutes.

    I keep scratching an itch on the top of my right hand. Dammit, I somehow touched poison ivy, which is weird. I’ve hardly pulled a weed, most of my outdoor work jas beem pruning.or mowing.
    Well, I touched it somewhere unless it doesn’t itch in the morning and it’s not poison ivy.
