A depression of the likes we have never seen before.
« on: October 26, 2020, 08:23:55 AM »
Starting to wonder if Mr. Trump's words could be a prophecy about to materialize?

We get the politicians that we deserve? Seems like the idiots voting for these morons will make us suffer greatly.

After what happened in 2016, I think a lot of people share your concern.

Already blaming Joe Biden for things that occur before he even starts his term...

Don’t worry, we are “turning the corner”! Is it Easter yet?

Another Dem to dump fallout from another failed R administration on...

LOL...

Cardboard you have described where we are at today perfectly. Under Trump’s leadership the US is experiencing the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. And it looks like another wave of the virus is hitting which, in the coming months, will result in another downturn in health and economic activity.

Divides in the US are also at Depression levels (race issues, regional and political strife) all fuelled by Trump.

America’s standing in the world is also at Depression levels also fuelled by Trump.

But do not despair. I think there is a US election soon.

Is it an election or an IQ test?

If US was so united and doing so well under Obama/Biden, why did people vote for Trump?

Because Obama and Biden were not running again?
Because voters made a mistake?
But then again, the majority of voters did NOT vote for trump.

No one likes Hillary and Bill's stench.  It's going to be a landslide victory in Biden's favour.  Cheers!

Which prophecy:

- Our Atlantic City casino hotel is one of the best in the world...a great success...a great success!  Bankrupt!
- Trump Vancouver...Trump Toronto...great hotels...great successes!  Naming licenses cancelled...both owners went into receivership!
- Trump University...we have the best professors...the best courses...the best University!  Under investigation and shut down.
- We have the best administration...going to do big things, big things!  91% turnover in the Trump "A" team in 4 years!

Or how about all of these prophecies:

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/timeline-president-donald-trump-changing-statements-on-coronavirus/

This quote by H.L. Mencken, about 100 years old, succinctly encapsulates American politics:

“When a candidate for public office faces the voters he does not face men of sense; he faces a mob of men whose chief distinguishing mark is the fact that they are quite incapable of weighing ideas, or even of comprehending any save the most elemental — men whose whole thinking is done in terms of emotion, and whose dominant emotion is dread of what they cannot understand. So confronted, the candidate must either bark with the pack or be lost... All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

Cheers!
