Re: Donald Trump
I'm living in Holland and we have a little man here called Geert Wilders who is as far right as you can be these days, and he seems to be walking round with a permanent stiffy since Trump got in. Here there is a coalition government, and I can't even remember the last significant decision that was made here. endless talk, no action. So Wilders sees this (walking in the shadow of Trump) as his big chance to gain a majority, and you know what? I'm tempted to vote for him just to see how bad it can get. Trouble is, we have a habit here of killing right wing people who seem to be about to do something significant. The last one was Pim Fortuin. None of you will have heard of him, but the point is there is still here a very fresh memory of what happened here during the German occupation of Holland in WW2.
I gotta say, Trump is a laugh a minute. Unless you happen to be Mexican. Or Muslim. Or democrat. Or a woman. Or gay. And probably soon, if you're handicapped, mentally ill, a gypsy, a jew (as soon as Trump has got their control of the money away from them).......wait a minute, haven't I heard this before somewhere?
I make no judgement about it. Humankind has not come so far. It's always been about might is right, if them over there have what we want, we go and get it, take their women and kill the men. No doubt some thought we were making progress in the 60's but it seems it was just a blip. Normal service has been resumed.
