    I understand and feel your pain.

    Too bad that we just can't give Obama another 4 years. :fil:

    I think that Putin is acting as he is to mask the effects of the sanctions imposed on him by there beligerence, and it has improved his standing at home. In the short term. I think that Russia is suffering very badly economically not just due to the sanctions, but also due to the cheapness of oil right now. I think that once the Russian people feel real economic pain, that they will finally turn to view Putin as causing much of their problems. Hopefully they will see peaceful and democratic change in government.

    China is too tied into us economically to ever fuck with us. We are too important to each other. China has turned to a capitalistic economy, and they need to work and play on the worlds stage. Things may be tense, but we will always need each other.

    He doesn't need another 4. The blacks and the whites are already far enough apart because of him. Health insurance companies have stolen enough of our money because of him. Trans Pacific Partnership (SHAFTA) is already moving because of him. What more damage do you want him to do?

    Who in their right mind would go into politics? So they can find every skeleton you have in your closet and make it fodder for the talking heads. No thanks. That's why you have only narcissistic sociopaths who are interested in running for office. Their thirst for power overrides their self respect and dignity.

    Obama 2008 "I don't care about red states or blue states. I care about the United States"

    Obama 2009: "the conservatives will just have to ride in the back of the bus for a while"

    Like Obama or hate him, his divisive politics have created trump, more than anyone else has.

    Not one bit of it will make a difference in your life. Most people couldn't give a shit and they're doing just fine. Take my 18-year-old nephew for example. Now he should be worried, yet most of the time he's barely conscious.
