How low can this bar go?:cry:

No matter the topic, if you think of the most inappropriate, a-holish thing that could be said, Trump will say something even worse.

What scares me is  the country that my generation will be handing over to the next. It's not the same country that I grew up in. Maybe I'm not part of the "Greatest Generation " , but I do believe that we folks born between 1945 and say 1960 had the best of opportunities , affordable education, reasonably secure future , a trust in the government and a sense that progress was inevitable. Sadly, that has been lost.

Let's keep some perspective.  Sure, the loss of trust in government is something to be lamented, but if you think about the catastrophic projected rise in global temperatures, it really doesn't seem like such a big deal.  : pbbt::cry:

Perhaps the reason why so many do not seem to care or take global warming  seriously is because of lost of trust in government ?

a trust in the government

Just curious much do you trust the Trump Government?  :wtf:

As to Trump, I would say 5 %, but I lost faith and trust during the Vietnam era ,.starting  with Kennedy ,on to Kohnson and then NIxon . I will say I gave Obama the benefit of the doubt .

I was in ballet class at the time and everyone's phone went off and it was telling that not one person in the room thought it was worthwhile to even check their phone to see what it was.  :laugh::laugh:

Friday, I called blazerboy at school (he is 18) and we had a long conversation about Thursday's testimony.  The boy hadn't watched it, but had seen clips.  I thrilled and surprised how pissed off he was about what the "good judge" said and acted.  The boy was REALLY PISSED, as pissed as his sister who I had spoken to earlier.  I reminded him that a real man who witnesses asshole behavior, even "just" words, steps in and does something.  Of course a peaceful intervention is preferred but, if I have to drive four hours to college to bail him out of jail because he had to kicks some jerk's ass, I would gladly do so. 

Young MEN are not afraid.  Young MEN act like MEN.

I feel the same way, but believe her. I am no better than "them" if I refuse to believe someone just because they are a c-word.

Coming from the man who took out ads calling for the execution of innocent men.

He means it's a scary time for men who want to live like the Handmaid's Tale is real.
