Has the World Gone Batshit Crazy?

Chris Christie …..


I’m not going to make any friends with this blog entry, but I am past that concern.

I’ll say it:  Trump is Crazy, Clinton I don’t trust, Cruz wraps himself in the Bible and I can’t find one person to vote for with confidence.  I liked Ben Carson, but he’s asleep, and probably our nation needs a  good neurosurgeon more than  another crazy politician.

Trump is a scoundrel, a misogynist, a pathological narcissist and I know my extreme narcissists when I see them.  God Almighty.  This guy’s platform is nothing but brio and insults.  Can you imagine Trump at an international conference in Europe, yelling, thumping the table with his shoe, acting like an ass?

Someone ‘important’ called Trump an ‘unstable narcissist’.  Well, that wouldn’t be so offensive IF he didn’t have a mighty military at his command.  But he would and then the fun begins.  Look out world.

I am as concerned about the Muslim invasion of Europe as much as anyone. People constantly ask where are the ‘moderate’ Muslims when terror happens by Islamic extremists?  Hiding under their beds, or claiming they are the real victims.  Bullshit.  These Muslims are as afraid of what would be in store for them IF they peeked out from their closets, etc.  They know that the sword of Islamic terrorists would take their heads as fast as any other person or group of people.

Hungary has been slammed for being right wing, putting up fences against the masses of Syrians, et al, but Hungary has long experience with Muslims.  Over the centuries, they have been invaded by Muslims many times. My Aunt Jean, who died in 2014 at the age of 102, and was Hungarian, said that our family were ‘pure’ Magyars…lovely, but I think we should remember all those invasions.

And about Turkey?  3 billion dollars were promised to Turkey to ‘try’ to keep these Syrian, etc. people in the settlement camps of Turkey, but now the head honcho of Turkey says it’s going to cost Europe 10 billion.  Of course it will.

Germany seems to be stuck in the guilt of Nazism and WWII.  So Merkel’s plan is to repopulate Germany with Muslims who in the main, have no interest in assimilating into German culture.  Merkel has fallen to the myth that 500,000 or 1 million Muslims is going to ‘repair’ what is wrong with Germany.  Fat chance.  What we see all over Europe today is truly troubling.  The rapes of women and children by young (and not so young)  Muslim men is beyond troubling.  Civil war is looming in Europe, and this is the root of WWIII.

I spent three years reading “Rise and Fall of the Third Reich”.  Just finished it this last fall.  The lessons in this remarkable book should be taken seriously.  Especially about the Brown Shirts.  I feel that Trump is possibly the ‘new” Hitler and the vicious, violent Brown Shirts can be either from the Left or Right.

So what is there to vote for?  Hillary scares me, she’s just a typical Washington politician,  and fat-ass Chris Christie looks like an expectant gopher ….expecting crumbs as a faithful servant of Trump.

I’ve had my rounds with ‘devote’ Christians.  I have two brothers who consider themselves Christians, but I wouldn’t.  Misogyny, arrogance and a lack of real humility is more to their methods, or brand of Christianity.  So Cruz and Rubio wrapping themselves in the Bible doesn’t get much from me.  I trust certain Christians as much as I trust Islamic terrorists. That goes for certain Jews of my knowledge.   Have I missed some group to insult?  Let me think…..The Buddhists in Indonesia aren’t so peaceful  lately.

Thirty years ago I would have voted for Bernie Sanders.  But now?  What the hell has he been doing?  Sitting amongst Vermont cheese rounds?

The real question  to me is this:  When will our country pull out of all these damn wars?  Trump and Clinton will continue these wars wherever there a foothold and we will not be free of this blight.

A thought on our southern migrants.  Trump wants to create a wall and Mexico is supposed to pay for it…Hah!  The money sent back to Mexico by illegals tops 30 billion a year) to stop this migration,  but almost all the farm workers that pick the crops, plant the crops, and are the only farm labor in this country…come from Mexico and lower on the map.  Farmers are very much against Trump because they see this policy as ruining American agriculture.  Certainly the middle level farms.  And further, farmers say that they can’t get Americans to do these jobs.  They just won’t do them.


Last night I tuned in, by accident, to a Congresswoman from Hawaii.  She put it thus:  Sanders seems to be the only candidate who wants to break this war cycle.  I don’t know how he is going to do this, and his other proposals make me  queasy, but in the end….it seems that we are no closer to peace in our lifetimes than our parents were with WWII.

I don’t know.  Right now, I feel the only thing I can do is to plan the garden and read as much as my eyes will allow.  To be grateful to Nature surrounding me and to try to live my life in a more Peaceful way, avoiding human irritants, family or not,  ignoring the chaos that courses around me.  There is such confusion and corruption in life today. It makes it necessary to detach and fine values again.  This world is crazy and crazy-making.

    I love it when people speak their mind. Given Hillary and Trump to choose from, though – which may well turn out to be the case for you Americans – I would definitely choose Trump. Hillary has a record of trying to impose “democracy” on nations that don’t want it, the root cause of all these problems, Trump considers such interference nonsense and has said so quite clearly – to Jeb Bush among others.

    Hi Kanti! Well, I understand you: I don’t trust either one. But our country is in a definite crisis, and we are picking from a small gene pool here. I just don’t like anyone. I think we are definitely looking at a World War, starting in Europe (again) and spreading it’s wings all over the globe. This ‘imposing democracy” on nations….is a dead end. Consider the Muslim world where women have no status, camels do better. How do these Western standards fit on these Muslims? They don’t and only the weapon merchants and contractors and all these corrupt tribal chiefs get the $$$ and their people still eat dirt. It’s beyond belief. Religion and caste behaviors are so deep within these men that democracy doesn’t even apply. We keep pouring tax money into the mouths and pockets of these foreign nations and it’s endless. War is a profit maker for some. For others? well, you know that answer.

    Jane, choices on the political scene are quite pitiful. We have literally hundreds of politicos living on the tax dollar–it seems that a few of them would have ventured out of the cushy D.C. offices and onto a cushy tour bus.

    I can see Herr Trump going totally off on leaders at conferences. Those meeting will be short, no doubt. But that might mean they are productive.

    Humans like to fight, so the wars are going to keep on a’coming. I suspect The Donald does have a bit of Pat Buchanan in his system, meaning he will do what he feels we should militarily then pull back. He doesn’t seem to be very eager to play World Super Cop while others sip wine and nibble on artisan cheeses.

    People are unhappy and discontent, so the dude who tells it “like it is” will garner many, many votes.

    As you have see in the news lately, Turkey is angling for more funds on the refugee issue and speed on their EU member application. The EU member states are arguing among themselves as we speak on what to do, as the massive wave of people is overwhelming.

    As for farm workers. no they won’t be Americans, at those wages. The guest workers will still be plucking and chopping.

    Here’s to you finding some peace among your budding seedlings. Because that is about all the quiet you are going to see for a while.

    Quiet? Hah….not with 4 dogs running around the plow. LOL!

    Trump is an European style Nationalist. With an authoritian manner. I see him not as the next Anti-Christ, but as a budding Hitler.
    The Brown Shirts are already in place.

    Should I cue a rousing marching song? People are weary of the politicians who talk incessantly while collecting monies of the coffers. If they even did a half-asses job. Herr would not have such fertile ground to stomp over.


  6. ladynyo Says:

    Somewhere recently I heard this analysis of Trump (or Thumper if you will…):

    Something like Trump is an European Nationalist, with an authoritarian rule. I think Thumper would be very much at risk turning into a Hitler. The Brown Shirts have certainly multiplied here and abroad.

    Eleg jo.
