The Doomsday Clock

About two years after President Obama was elected in 2008 he was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. History will judge how he lived up to that prize. In the fifth day of the Donald Trump presidency, the Doomsday clock was advanced 30 seconds to midnight. “Never before has the Bulletin [of Atomic Scientists] decided to advance the clock largely because of the statements of a single person,” they wrote. “When that person is the new president of the United States, his words matter.” History will also judge how he lives up to that. I fear he will. * * * * * * * * * The "How to Radicalize more Disaffected Muslims and Others" preliminary findings were leaked today to the Huffington Post. "For those Muslims already in the US, we will register them, spy on them, make them feel unwelcome. For foreign Muslins, we will single them out and deny them entry to the United States," a source said. "This should pretty much guarantee a whole new generation of people who are angry at the US. If we continue to bomb them, herd them into camps, deny fleeing civilians entry to our country, they, their children, and their children's children will hate us forever. The upside of all this is that we can then steal their oil, too." Well played, sir. * * * * * * * * * * * President Big Hair Small Hands today issued an Executive Order that supermarkets from this day forward would sell only American cheese as part of his America first campaign. "Swiss, Cheddar, Muenster -- you can kiss them goodbye," a spokesperson said. "And we will be reinstating G W Bush's Freedom Fries designation as well." * * * * * * * * The odds in Las Vegas, by the way, are 7 to 4 that Trump lasts less than an year in office. * * * * * * * * * Foreign translators are having difficulty translating Trump's statements. Said one, "Trump gives me outbreaks of sweat", his German translator says. "He is so contradictory that people think the translator talks rubbish." Said another: “It is evident that his limited vocabulary reflects a narrow thought....” * * * * * * * President Big Hair Small Hands said today that only 35 women showed up in Washington DC to protest over the weekend. Sad. * * * * * * * * * I really think young Barron Trump should be off limits for commentary though I can't help but think, given his surely bizarre, and probably dysfunctional family life and his narcissist father, that he's a prospect to be one of those kids who end up setting cats on fire. Pray for him that he is not destroyed. * * * * * * * * * * Mexico's President cancelled his scheduled meeting with Trump. Something to do with a wall, apparently.

The word in Nebraska is that he won't last even a year, but will be led silently away to get over himself. I guess we shall see! The email you have is not one I have used in years!

I just read an article about how laughter contributes to longevity. Given the current political climate, we'll all be thriving at 90 and beyond. Refuse to take seriously anything DT and his minions say, do, think, imply, create, think about saying, imply creating, do about thinking, yadda, yadda.... Laugh out loud. Heap those burning coals. Drive the bastards crazy.... See you at the centennial!
