Could Trump go out with a bang?
« on: November 17, 2020, 02:53:08 AM »

 Apparently after the election loss Trump has been in talks with his advisors about a strike on Iran who have apparently continued to quietly pursue its nuclear ambitions while the world was distracted with coronavirus. They advised against it.

 But Trump doesn't seem like the kinda guy to sit quietly for the next three months and help with a smooth handover. So with his election contest failing and no-one willing to give him much credit for the positive vaccine developments it seems logicial he wants his last act to remind people that he got touch on Iran after years of Democrat appeasement. And it was only a year ago that tensions escalated.

 Of course he would stand a much better chance if he'd won the election but he is still President and I imagine that the military are still hawkish and would welcome some action.

Damn, I hope not.  I was actually hoping he'd do something drastic in the opposite direction.  Start a quick and total withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq.  Give a big middle finger to the Pentagon and the deep state.  Maybe pardon Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, Reality Winner, and Ross Ulbricht while he's at it.   He should do something big and unexpected, but not bomb Iran.

I'd be happy if he just did a shit-ton of these types of little things that make a real difference in people's lives.

Allowing phosphates back in detergents would be a huge one.  My wife and I add Sodium Tripolyphosphate to the phosphate free detergent in every load of dishes and laundry we run, it makes a huge difference.  Laundry comes clean, stains come out, and dishes are sparkling clear, just like they used to be before the regulations.

And getting rid of gas can regulations that make them not work and spill all over the place would be great too.

Just dump some lye in your laundry which is less alkaline than TSP.

I canít wait for the algae blooms.

The gas can spouts I agree are nonsense.

Yeah, these are goofy U.S. laws.  We don't really have these issues here.  Cheers!

And the 1 gallon toilets too.  I've heard of people smuggling toilets in from Canada.

Trump Jr. and one of Giuliani's sons have Covid now.  Even though Covid is a liberal hoax perpetrated by baby-eating liberals who fornicate with the devil in pizza outlets.  Science, shmience!  Cheers!
