I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor, insignificant preamble to somethin' else. - Cynthia from the movie, "Dazed and Confused." (1993)
Good Day World!
I don't have to take a poll to know that we're living in extraordinary times in America.
When you have arguably the worst president in our history being considered for a Nobel Peace Prize, it's understandable if you're a little dazed and confused.
Trump, of course, is already taking credit for uniting Korea and disarming their nukes, hence saving the world.
The only problem with that, is no actual official negotiation has taken place. Donny and Rocket Man haven't met face-to-face. There's no confirmation where these negotiations will take place...and when.
When I heard that South Korean president Moon was suggesting Trump should get a Nobel Peace Prize (again ahead of everything), the first thing that struck me was he was stroking Donny's ego.
An easy thing to do, as some other world leaders have already figured out.
Meanwhile, this possible Nobel Prize winner, is getting ready to pick a fight with Iran by backing out of the current nuke agreement on May 12th - in essence, violating the treaty that the rest of the civilized world agreed to.
The last thing anyone needs is another war in the Middle East.
Embattled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
is trying to push Trump's buttons by claiming Iran has already violated the treaty and is making nukes.
With the Jared Kushner connection to Netanyahu, you can be sure there's been secret talks between Trump and Netanyahu. Collusion, if you will.
Both leaders are under attack in their own countries, and the idea of a war as a diversion, must be appealing.
Even the idea of selecting Trump for the honor of a peace prize, shatters all norms when you look at all he legal trouble he's in, and his assaults on our Constitution.
From colluding with Russia, to bribing women not to expose his sleaze before the presidential election, he's demonstrated that the only thing he deserves is being locked up behind bars.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
