Never !

America's Nukes must be bigger than anyone else's nukes!
No one must question the size and power of our nuclear missiles!
Believe us, folks, no country has ever complained bout the size of our nuclear bombs we dropped on them - believe us, there is no problem there.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
- Douglas Adams

Maybe in combination with this:

You suppose that this war has been a criminal blunder and an exceptional horror ; you imagine that before long reason will prevail, and all these inferior people that govern the world will be swept aside, and your own party will reform everything and remain always in office. You are mistaken."

From a year ago, but I just now saw this. Interesting, Rash Limpjaw (otherwise known as The Enabler), apparently learns from his idol how to shift the blame:

http://www.politicususa.com/2016/01/25/ ... trump.html

It's a bit puzzling, since Limpjaw is apparently now back on board with Trump. The author was (to say the least!) premature in speaking of the Republican defeat in 2016. The rant is vintage Limbaugh: Democrats are treasonous scum, and Republicans have a duty to shut them down utterly, stomp them into the dust. Of course, it is now the civic duty of Democrats to cooperate with Trump, and they are just being obstructionist in delaying his appointments. Limbaugh is, more than anyone else, responsible for the polarization that has made the country ungovernable. And he doesn't care a bit. He still longs for the day when his party will be in power, all the wealth will be in the hands of him and his few friends, and they'll have license to gouge the poor by charging whatever they want and destroy the environment any time it suits them to do so. In short, he's a PIG.

Just remember that guys will be measuring the size of our nukes, so deduct 50%.

Hmm, I'd forgotten (it's been so long since the war in Viet Nam) that WP once stood for white phosphorous. More recently (like at Stephen Miller's recent appearance before the camera) the hand signs for WP mean white power.

More patriotism

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/p ... a-election wrote:According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll...53 percent of the American public wants Congress to investigate reported communications between Russia and Trump’s campaign team...

Similarly, 54 percent of Americans believe Congress should investigate Russian interference in election...

Democrats supported both investigations...by more than 80 percent. Independents supported...by more than 50 percent. Republicans opposed both investigations by at least a plurality: Forty-six percent were against investigating the Trump campaign’s reported Russian contacts, and 54 percent were against investigating Russian interference in the election.


Haven't heard much about his tax returns lately but whatever it was, the people wanna see 'em.

I don't think they should impeach him, I think they should imprune him. That would be unpresidented.

Add another disappointing failure to Trumps lejr.

I wuz hoping for him to break the record for the shortest term in history, but he haz alredy exeeded Bill Harrison'z 31 day record.

He did hiz best, but didnt hav the jets to swing that load.

And don't forget the binding counter spells.

If that's the only thing threatening Trump's presidency, he can relax and concentrate on Alec Baldwin.

I'm not sure which is sillier, the witches who seriously believe they have some power or the dumber-than-rocks Christian evangelicals who seriously think the witches have some power and who are afraid of it. Well, as Mencken said, in this country a man has to have a petrified diaphragm if he doesn't laugh himself to sleep every night.
