    Hey Plako – question: Since you’re from an Eastern Bloc country of some sort, (which exact country never being disclosed or confirmed, but no matter) what do you think of DJT’s slavish devotion to Vladimir Putin? Just a wild guess here, but I’d think you’d be kinda concerned about that – no? I have my theories, but I’m curious what you think of their relationship…

    "Slavish devotion"?! I'm sorry but I see a great deal of your personal interpretation of some very limited and probably twisted MSM reports. Don't take me wrong, I'm no fan of Trump or Putin but acknowledge both have some success into looking for their countries first which doesn't mean that they really are against the globalists, just at least display some occasional independence. If you recall, during the election campaign Trump held much more hostile position against IMC hawks and DC lobbyists, and was promising to end the unnecessary wars abroad, disband NATO and bring the troops home. Also, to sit down with Putin and improve relationships. My guess is that after he learned who and why killed JFK he had to play the game, otherwise... Cannot blame him for that, one man cannot change the rotten system even if he wished it sincerely. Which, given who he appointed in his cabinet made me hard to believe.
    As for Trump's respect to Putin, don't you think that Putin played the international and domestic games much better than Trump and is enjoying much more popularity at home and abroad? Occasionally, both Trump and Putin may have common interests and see more benefits from collaboration than from confrontation, not necessarily for the long-term well-being of their countries. The rest is MSM lies paid by MIC and DNC, probably also by never-Trump RINOs as well
    To me, both are politicians, just a few grades less repugnant than Pelosi, the rest from DNC and most of RNC, along with Gavin boy, Falconer, and Fletcher.

    Well, as I expected… Thanks for the response.

    “IMC hawks?”

    Are you referring to the MIC – military industrial complex? If so, you realize what the SecDef’s prior occupation was right? You also understand what DJT’s first trip abroad was all about right? Saudia Arabia and a massive weapons sale, remember? (Gotta bomb those scary Houthis into the Stone Age). The “swamp” in Wash DC is deeper than ever. Spend enough at a certain hotel downtown – bingo, you’ve got access. And guess who bragged, (falsely of course) "The American military has been completely rebuilt under my administration at a cost of $2.5 trillion.”

    Personally -- I think a potted plant could play “international and domestic games” better than DJT.

    IMO, Putin’s way smarter – more cunning -- (and richer!) than Trump. And for someone who enjoys the “alpha male” persona, DJT is docile as a lamb around VP. Strange, huh? And I bet in January ’21 we’ll start to get to the bottom of it and learn why.

    One hunned... How has that last hundred and fifty years of big government worked out for you? Hahahaha... Doesn't even matter whether you vote orange idiot or the guy who can't complete a sentence, still voting the same, KEEPING THE SAME PAYASOS IN POWER. Don't you even worry your pretty little head about it, it will all come out right as rain... LMAO

    I refuse... Most years I find someone worthy of a vote, when I can't, I write someone in... I at least try to do my part, do you?

    I have voted in every presidential election since I became I became of age to vote. I later realized that before they even
    finalize the vote in California, the election already has been decided. It made me think my vote didn't count, but I still vote just for the self satisfaction. Maybe I will write in Werfless for Mayer of San Diego. That would also make me feel good! :)

    I just wish the other 99 percent would do likewise... I also wish for a nice ride, common courtesy, common sense and a ten thousand dollar bottle of whiskey...

    I usually do more lurking than posting in the lounge, but...

    Just curious if anybody has heard any of Jesse Ventura's thoughts on government? One I like in particular, and have said for years, is that we need a "none of the above" box on the ballot. A vote of no confidence in any of the candidates. Might make them listen a little to the people they are supposed to be serving, instead of just spouting platitudes. Another of his ideas I liked was to abolish political parties. No red and blue sides of the ballot. Make citizens actually do a little diligence into finding out what the candidates' positions are. Doesn't sound like a bad thing to me. Just saying...

    Werf, just so you know, I appreciate your insights and contributions to this site – really. No malice in my comments. Just another POV…
