Update: It turns out the cannon has a motorized base, and can make holes just fine using the barrel itself as a battering ram. But due to design constraints it won't work without a projectile loaded in, so we still need those drills.

The point I'm trying to make is that we should have some government-guaranteed loans for the purchase of exotic cats.

At first, I moved from pokémon posters to regular oil paintings, but then these really grumpy and unreasonable detectives from the Louvre showed up and took them all. They wouldn't even give me back my thumbtacks!

What If Trump Has Been a Russian Asset Since 1987?

4 Comments and 13 Shares

And it would mean the Russia scandal began far earlier than conventionally understood and ended later — indeed, is still happening. As Trump arranges to meet face-to-face and privately with Vladimir Putin later this month, the collusion between the two men metastasizing from a dark accusation into an open alliance, it would be dangerous not to consider the possibility that the summit is less a negotiation between two heads of state than a meeting between a Russian-intelligence asset and his handler.

It is often said that Donald Trump has had the same nationalistic, zero-sum worldview forever. But that isn’t exactly true. Yes, his racism and mendacity have been evident since his youth, but those who have traced the evolution of his hypernationalism all settle on one year in particular: 1987. Trump “came onto the political stage in 1987 with a full-page ad in the New York Times attacking the Japanese for relying on the United States to defend it militarily,” reported Edward Alden, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. “The president has believed for 30 years that these alliance commitments are a drain on our finite national treasure,” a White House official told the Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin. Tom Wright, another scholar who has delved into Trump’s history, reached the same conclusion. “1987 is Trump’s breakout year. There are only a couple of examples of him commenting on world politics before then.”

This is a disturbingly plausible possibility. And it’s insane that this is really just the broad overview. I’ve been saying all along that the volume of scandal here is one of the tactics. You have to be dedicated to wade through this much filth.

Based on Trump's behavior I have wondered if he's a real life Manchrian Candidate but sold out to self-interest rather than brain washing.

  • Waiting years to receive a car you ordered, to find that it's of poor workmanship and quality.
  • Promises of colonizing the solar system while you toil in drudgery day in, day out.
  • Living five adults to a two room apartment.
  • Being told you are constructing utopia while the system crumbles around you.
  • 'Totally not illegal taxi' taxis by private citizens moonlighting to make ends meet.
  • Everything slaved to the needs of the military-industrial complex.
  • Mandatory workplace political education.
  • Productivity largely falsified to satisfy appearance of sponsoring elites.
  • Deviation from mainstream narrative carries heavy social and political consequences.
  • Networked computers exist but they're really bad.
  • Henry Kissinger visits sometimes for some reason.
  • Elite power struggles result in massive collateral damage, sometimes purges.
  • Failures are bizarrely upheld as triumphs.
  • Otherwise extremely intelligent people just turning the crank because it's the only way to get ahead.
  • The plight of the working class is discussed mainly by people who do no work.
  • The United States as a whole is depicted as evil by default.
  • The currency most people are talking about is fake and worthless.
  • The economy is centrally planned, using opaque algorithms not fully understood by their users.
