    It wasn't meant to disparage you.

    I am often finding myself grumbling about "these kids today", except with much more profanity.

    "It is not worthwhile to try to keep history from repeating itself, for man's character will always make the preventing of the repetitions impossible."

    - Autobiographical dictation, 15 January 1907. Published in Autobiography of Mark Twain, Vol. 2 (University of California Press, 2013)

    Likely the basis of the often accredited but never confirmed quote,

    "History may not repeat itself but it does rhyme".

    All good my friend. The one thing I’ve enjoyed most about this forum is that outside one or two folks I truly appreciate the discourse that occurs here. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and stay safe.

    Tax fraud convictions of Trump Companies does not fare well for his image. Mara Lago could be the new Club Fed! The old level 1 at Eglin AFB is closed.

    I doubt it. Looks like Trump had very little to do with the actual operation of the company. The CFO Allen Weisselman plead guilty to 15 felonies and admitted to doing it for personal gain.

    Does it hurt Trump"s image? Sure. Is it enough to sway undecideds against him in the increasingly unlikely event he wins the GOP nomination? Maybe, but it doesn't look like he has chance anyway.

    Saw that Bolton the Walrus was threating to run against Trump. That would put a nail in the GOP future.

    I voted Constitution Party (Castle) in 2016. I was among the hundreds of thousands who awoke that Wednesday morning fully dreading hearing the phrase "Madam President." Trump surprised me enormously. He moved the embassy to Jerusalem -- which each of the previous 6 presidents promised to do. He slowed the imbecilic love of China. He called out the Fake News for exactly what it is. Etc.

    I chided people who railed against (Birx' invented slogan) "15 Days to Slow The Spread."

    "C'mon! It's just two weeks. It won't hurt you..."

    Then ... BOOM! I had a visceral reaction to "30 Days to Slow the Spread."

    "Hey! Those conspiracy theorists were (once again) right!!!"

    I was personally an anti-vax guy for decades. There was NO WAY I was going to take that experimental jab. I cringed every time Trump boasted about how quickly he helped rollout these "wonderful" vaccines. I *hated* that he kept bragging about this fiasco.

    Regardless, I voted for Trump in 2020.

    It wasn't necessary, period. (Sweden is STILL the example of how herd immunity works -- and worked. Australia became "'the new China" in their idiotic Big Brother oversight of all their people.)

    Bolton's 15 minutes ended years ago.

    Regardless if Trump actually ends up being the Republican nominee or not, his mere involvement has doomed the chances for the party in 2024. Many libertarian and moderate voters that might normally vote R. won't vote for him because he's an abrasive narcissistic asshole that is about as articulate as a stoned kindergartner, and his rabid base won't vote for a more moderate candidate that prefers to persuade his adversaries rather than bully them.

    Discussion is an exchange of intelligence. Argument is an exchange of
    ignorance. Ever found a liberal that you can have a discussion with?

    There's no persuading them.
    The last two elections proved it.

    TFOGGER, telling it like it is!

    That phony SOB has done enough damage. He's already lost his second chance. And his third chance. But please, bring Hillary back so the Democrats can vote for her. Two peas in a rotten pod.
