    Did you just have a brain-fart SBF?

    Good OP. Pinker's 'The Better Angels of our Nature' should be compulsory reading for every ex-JW.

    Whaaaa? Ever the contrarian attention seeking whore, trying (and succeeding way too often) to get under Cofty's skin. Yes, it would be like that make believe monster in the sky - to kill everyone when they had finally begun to figure some things out, like extending the life span, which had been around 24 - 34 for 100,000 years, to over 80.

    And making huge dents in poverty, illiteracy, and improving health, justice and living conditions on a world wide scale. Not only that, we pathetic humans are on the cusp of addressing some diseases at the DNA level and reversing aging.

    Yes, it certainly proves the sky monster is a monster. She could have intervened for the 1 - 200,000 year history of our species at ANY other time and saved a lot of people from misery. Now that humans are making great improvements in all important categories and the future is so bright we have to wear shades the bitch wants to kill us all. Figures.

    The idea “Make America Great Again” professes a nostalgia for a lost Eden. But really? If that was, say, the 1950s, the U.S. also had segregation, polio and bans on interracial marriage, gay sex and birth control

    but....thats the point. Dont you see? The "great" part for much to the Trumpian drone army, is exactly that. They long for a country where gays are forced to be in a closet, lest they are forced to see two man holding hands walking down the street. A country where being white is still a sign that you were gifted with something special at birth. A country of men who still part their hair with a fine straight comb while the wife waits at home with a freshly made meatloaf, fully aware of her position in the family. A country where fine families go to church on Sunday mornings to compare their best outfits and worship and oddly uninterested invisible person that lives in a cloud.

    They hate to see a country that is changing, that is becoming more inclusive, more open-minded, more tolerate to everybody's differences. How dare we do such things?

    The "great" part for much to the Trumpian drone army, is exactly that. They long for a country where gays are forced to be in a closet, ... - until Trump repeals gay rights laws, repeals racial equality laws, repeals women's rights laws and starts enslaving Negroes, we can take your post for what it is ... hysterical nonsense.

    One thing which hasn't changed is America's War Based economy. Propping up the PetroDollar to enable National Debt to grow beyond the $20 trillion where it currently rests temporarily.

    The War Drums are beating as Washington's NeoCons do what they can to keep the wars going and the debt piling up as the Elite Few magnify their fortunes.

    Nothing new under the sun...
