Alzheimers is cruel disease and like other illnesses and disabilities should not be used in mocking references be they direct or subtle.

 

 

 

 

I'm not mocking.

Pump brain


Actually I googled pump brain and this was the first thing that came up, so apologies that is the total garbage that it is, I will change it later ...


this is probably more accurate, long term issues apparently has nothing to do with pump brain.


On the other hand there is a correlation between heart attacks and cocaine use. So maybe it's the cocaine.


We don't know whether he consumed illicit drugs. We do know he was definitely hooked to a heart lung machine. Some people take note of his level of apparent frailty.

So being hooked to a heart/lung machine, while the surgeon does his thing makes those frail?

Yup... maybe he snorted but didn't inhale.

Finally, China reacts, suggesting a Trump success would personify a failure of democracy. Saying exactly what I wasn't daring enough to.

Yeah it was linked earlier. No one linked the original yet so here it is. Here's a part also:

"Mussolini and Hitler came to power through elections, a heavy lesson for Western democracy. Now, most analysts believe the US election system will stop Trump from being president eventually. The process will be scary but not dangerous."

From: http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/973564.shtml

Frankly agree I think it was a heavy lesson for western democracy. Democracy was a very new thing in Italy and Germany at that time.

Never the less I think it is a lesson which has been learned to some extent by western democracy which is exactly why you see very widespread opposition to Trump-ism and disgust crossing party lines.

To some extent Trump will change his spots going into the election proper and appear a bit different but I think that will not help him a whole lot.

Seeing the outbreaks at the Trump nomination rallies I keep thinking of this:



It is not the same thing by a long shot but that is what I think of.

Trump uncomfortably reminds me of Greg Stillson; who was the antagonist in an early Stephen King book called The Dead Zone. The protagonist in that book is a psychic and touches Stillson's hand, and has a strong vision of the man one day becoming president of the USA and launching a nuclear war. He sets out to stop this vision from becoming true.

At last, some good news (Time Inc Network)

 

The Beginning of the End of Donald Trump

extracts:

 

"As repulsive as the spectacle has been, Donald Trump being taken down by his own misogyny counts as a rare occasion of actual human progress."

"Donald Trump has been an effective national bully - of the disabled, of Mexicans and Muslims, of strong women - for the duration of his almost year-long candidacy.
Through the fall and the winter, it appeared that no one could stop him.
Now, at long last, it looks like he’s being thwarted by the only person capable of doing so: himself."

If that's true, wow it took a long time to realise. If it's not true, well, they're still in denial.
