Trump is not a dictator or socialist and he is not an authoritarian. He is showing the people's will can trump authoritarian governments. Only a socialist would think that's a bad thing and the Chinese have it right.

Who hasn't lost contact with their child at some point? I did once at a public pool and died a thousand deaths until we connected again. I was talking with his swim instructor and off he went. Thoughts of him drowning or being abducted filled my head. I seriously wondered how I would tell my wife. Then I found him. Years later, my wife told me about the time she "lost" him and thought the same thoughts. I suspect this happens to most parents at least once. Most times, a kind stranger, not a gorilla, finds the child.
As for shooting the gorilla, I wondered about the wisdom of it, too, then I saw the video of the gorilla treating the boy like a rag doll ...

Thankfully Iranian commandos and Iranian trained Iraqi soldiers are leading the fight to free Fallujah of the Saudi backed Sunni terrorists occupying the city, as that gives the operation a much better chance of success.

And the child was supposed to learn not to throw rocks at cars by leaving him behind in a bear infested forest? really? unfortunately, there are several parenting practices as or more stupid than this. I hope the child is found for the good sake of the child, although I wouldn't return him to those parents.

Trump is just 'making an example' of people who don't fall in line to kiss his.....hand. He's letting all the GOP know that they'd better do what he says or he'll go after them. It's classic strong man dictator stuff and I think it's very significant that it's mostly the women who are showing the guts to not bow down to the new dictator and grovel at his feet.

Brexit people are Britain's answer to Trump people. They don't travel, don't like foreigners, don't know much, they often deny global warming. Their leader Boris Johnson is Trump's image for more than just his blond mop, he shares Trump's profound narcissism and shameless opportunism.
Brexit is just more Trump-style angry nihilism by miggle-aged men who can't explain why they're angry. Smashie smashie, don't ask me what I'm replacing it with. Give the finger to Johnny Foreigner because .. uhh .. he's foreign.

Clearly, Miller-Barron Trump's Rolling Thunder Brownshirts do not represent the American Veteran and have no respect for those who have served, died in combat, or endured suffering as a POW.
The noisy ostentatious display of false patriotism in the name of selfish aggrandizement and political opportunism has no place in our nation's celebration of Memorial Day.
If a bunch of fascist buffoons want to have a Harley Party to drink beer and parade around in leather suits while desecrating the American flag, let them pay for their own security, road closures, and police escorts away from the capitol on Memorial Day.

How tragic! I hope they are all able to fully recover. It is so counter-intuitive, but we always had it drummed into our heads as children: NEVER take shelter from a thunderstorm under a tree. Lie down, preferably in a low spot, and get soaked.

How about we start by getting rid of the THOUSANDS of congressional staffers whose sole job is to pedal misinformation and who make it their business to leak top secret material to the press.

We must distinguish impulsive suicide from suicide as a rational response by a terminally ill person whose continued existence offers only pain and further loss of autonomy and dignity. "Remember that if the room is smoky, you can always leave."

I'll start with the essence of what is going on here. ISIS etc was created by the CIA, Saudi Arabia, etc, as a proxy force to overthrow Assad. It is as clear as day.
After they failed to overthrow Assad, we were "told" the Pentagon was bombing ISIS but we never really saw any results (until the Russians got involved).
Now, over the last two days, we are getting bombarded with propaganda about how the Pentagon is "trying" to drive ISIS away. Yesterday, it was all about those pictures that suddenly appeared with US special forces helping the Kurds.
It is a bizarre situation where Pentagon proxies are fighting CIA proxies with US taxpayer dollars wasted away and where propaganda-like news has to be manufactured to explain it all to the gullible US public.

There is little sympathy anywhere in the world for a selfish coward who ends the life of a young woman for what will no doubt prove a pathetic motive. The Japanese legal system is ruthless and this man will pay dearly for this crime, trust me.

"an internationally disputed referendum."
"The results of the survey by the [United States government agency] Broadcasting Board of Governors, conducted 21–29 April 2014, showed that 83% of Crimeans felt that the results of the March 16 referendum on Crimea’s status likely reflected the views of most people there."

Barack Obama has been the best president of my lifetime, and I was born during the Truman administration. I can't think of anyone else who is close.
Note that he helped guide us through economic recovery while reducing the deficit by two-thirds.
The nuclear bombing of Japan is not something to be proud of NOR is it something to apologize for. We were at war, a war if you remember that was started BY Japan on Dec 7th 1941.
