I think it was the Emperor Tiberius who said that when asked why he picked Caligula to be his successor; but it doesn't matter, what should've been said was "it takes a smart dog and one that cannot be easily swayed by hollow flattery, to eat a dog. Donald Trump is a dog, but not the right kind of dog to deal with Vladimir Putin. > *> On your faux shaming of me for not trusting Joey over Vlad the Impaler, > is that I surmise that your party and its financiers, hate the Great > Internal Enemy, much as Stalin, Mao, Kim, Pol Pot,* > Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot can no longer harm me or anybody else, and Kim is far away and controls a weak country. But fascist Republicans are numerous and much closer, and there is a real danger that in the near future they could seize total control of a country that is the world's strongest, both economically and militarily, and also is the country I happened to live in. So I don't believe it's illogical to have a less than friendly attitude towards such people. The stakes are very high, there is a real possibility that Donald Trump could give us a solution to the Fermi paradox, but not an answer we'd like. *> You guys are always worried that Donny was soft on Vlad, and "How > unpatriotic!"

It's us. * > Speaking of hate, I believe the principal reason Republicans in general and you in particular hate Joe Biden so much is that he belongs to a different tribe than you, in the voting booth there is a "D" next to his name not a "R". As I've mentioned before for most of my life I was a registered Republican, I'm a Democrat now but I have no particular loyalty towards them, if they ever go half as crazy as Republicans have I would not hesitate to drop them like a hot potato. And if there was any doubt before then after January 6 2021 all doubt was removed and it became crystal clear that Republicans hate Democrats more than they love the US Constitution or democracy. I would even go so far as to say that some, perhaps most, Republicans hate Democrats more than they love life. > *> Happy Easter.* > And happy Jesus zombie day to you too.
