A shooting war would help my diet because there won't be much replacement food moving... or toilet paper.

Of course we're immune to it. American's attention spans are too short for anything to catch on and have people stay with it. Other countries live century to century, generation to generation. We live our lives in 4 year election cycles. Wash, rinse, repeat. Remember this?: Black Panther Party

We've even seen perfect storms before:

That is a gross misstatement of the socialist Democrats' state of mind. Having ethics would have meant not show-trialing Justice Kavanaugh. But a show-trial is exactly what he got. Good thing it failed.

An ethical Party would have kicked the Clintons out long before the White House -- but that didn't happen either.

Representative Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) ran a short gamut from hallucination to creative writing in the impeachment first, offense later if at all showtrial show of the impeachment.

No, the Democrats are dead to me. They should, on ethical grounds, be dead to you as well. If you assume the Dems have no virtues at all, no principle but untrammeled, undemocratic power, your understanding deepens.

This, however, is well thought.

I was perhaps unclear. When I said democrats I was referring to voters and not to politicians who are all filthy liars wearing different outfits and who have 'no principle[s] but untrammeled, undemocratic power.'
