Has everybody forgotten that it was Obama who wanted the trillion dollar ‘upgrade’ of the US arsenal? I haven’t. Didn’t he sign it into being before he went out of office to get his richly deserved millions from the corporate wealthy? Has he turned in his Nobel Peace Prize yet?
Trump is the end result of Reagan and his gang, and HW Bush, Clinton, Cheny & W, and Obama were just lead-ins to full throttle Fascist Empire which we certainly have got going now.
Fascism won WWII, isn’t it obvious? The wealthy sociopaths are not even trying to hide it anymore and it is spreading everywhere again like influenza. Too many people are mind sick with it.
*Ponyboy, me, too, being told to duck under my Mission Beach School desk and already knowing just how useless this move was being 4 air miles from aircraft carrier row in San Diego harbor and having heard all about what would really happen from my Japanese stepmom. She told truth not crap, and it was an education for this little surfer kid that never went away.
Most of my peers were ignorant Navy brats or had parents involved in the war industry that was booming there. My opinion was not approved by either teachers or the other elementary school kids. I got in trouble. As a matter of fact I had after-school fights picked because of my opinions…along with having a ‘gook’ for a stepmom.
Since nothing and I mean absolutely nothing is going to change in regards to even trying to mitigate the collapse of both the ecosystem and the climate into outright catastrophe, and the world is getting ready for a new world war (Pakistan & India anybody?), which would be worse?
At least with nuclear winter this will be over much, much faster. Six months and every planet and animal will be dead. Yeah, that’s pretty freaking dark, isn’t it? But I read Ellsberg’s Doomsday Machine last year, and bluntly the only reason it hasn’t happened yet is because of LUCK! Just plain luck.
