Donald Trump and The National Anthem
This sums it up the best.
I don't know - and I don't want to know - the words to Australia's national anthem. And to be honest, I don't know any Aussies who do know it. It's a piece of crap.
When the authorities finally replace it with a decent anthem, then I'll learn the words to it.
Would this work in real life now? With Trump instead of Harrison Ford?
We wish Doc, we wish.
Well, unless Trump goes against his Russian overlords, it won't be they who take the plane. Besides, if he ever did find himself in such a situation, he'd just piss himself and whine about how unfair it is.
Okay, I admit, I am completely gullible....
But, much like the novel that predicted Titanic's sinking....
I have just stumbled on this about two books from 1893 and 1896, both by the same author.....
Ingersoll Lockwood was born at Ossining, New York, in August 1841 to a well-known legal family. His father, Munson Lockwood, was a brigadier general in the New York State Militia, a lawyer, and also went on to hold the position of Warden at the famous Sing Sing prison. Both of Ingersoll’s uncles, Ralph and Albert Lockwood, were also attorneys. Ingersoll was trained in the law, but before establishing a practice, he was appointed Consul to the Kingdom of Hanover by the Lincoln Administration – becoming the youngest member of a U.S. delegation. After his federal service, Ingersoll came back to New York City where he established a successful firm with his brother Henry. In addition to his legal work, Ingersoll began a writing career, which included political essays, fiction and poetry. His most successful works were his children’s novels surrounding the character of Baron Trump. He retired to Saratoga Springs New York where he continued to write, publishing his last book of poetry five years before his death in 1918.
Can anybody with a much less gullible mind than me debunk the prophetic aspect of these two books, or explain with sobering logic how they came to be - seemingly - forecasts of what was to come?
I can't do it. The superstitious side of me is too strong and I WANT to believe something eerie is going on here!
Trump: Movies & Games May Cause Violence
Appearing at a listening session to address concerns from survivors of the Parkland school shooting, U.S. President Donald Trump has pointed the finger at violent video games and movies as possible causes of violence.
Metro reports that Trump, speaking at a meeting with state lawmakers Thursday, said that youngsters were able to access both too easily while their minds were still forming. He reportedly told Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi:
“I’m hearing more and more people seeing the level of violence in video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts. And then you go the further step, and that’s the movies. You see these movies, and they’re so violent a kid is able to see the movie if sex isn’t involved, but killing is involved, and maybe we need to put a rating system for that. The fact is that you are having movies come out, that are so violent, the killing and everything else, and we may have to think about that.”
The comments follow Trump praising the NRA as ‘great people’ hours earlier on Twitter and suggested arming teachers yesterday along with strongly pushing for comprehensive background checks with an emphasis on mental health.
Survivors attending these meetings this week raised obvious questions about the accessibility of guns in the United States, especially assault rifles like the AR-15 which ended up in the hands of the teen perpetrator behind last week’s mass shooting in Florida.
He will place the blame on everything except the NRA and easy access to guns!!! Fuckwit!!!
While I agree that the easy access to guns is a large part of the problem, I've come to the opinion that the biggest problem in the US is the culture. There are other countries where gun ownership is as high as the US but don't have the same level of mass killings. The problem is that culturally they have the understanding the problems are solved by shooting the bad guys. That's not necessarily a conscious understanding but if you look at their entire entertainment industry, that's the message that's proclaimed. If you look at movies and TV shows from other countries (those that aren't obviously influenced by the US) they don't have the same "shoot the bad guys" mentality running through them. From that viewpoint it becomes understandable how someone can take that attitude and designate the "bad guys" as anyone who has done them wrong or can be made to represent those people.
I absolutely agree that it should be much harder for people to get guns in the US, but until they address the cultural issues I don't think shootings like this are going to go away.

I just found this on someone's twitter as a time-saving response and think it's not too bad...
