Fire up them Nuclear Power plants, boys*, and begin processing that weapons-grade uranium** — we’re goin’ nuclear.
Back to the future, it seems.
Because it seems, after Putin flexed his shirtless muscles and talked tough about being tougher than us, of course our race-baiting, violence-inspiring, etcetera, etceteta, megalomaniacal president-elect/Dictator-in-waiting has to respond in kind (if he is try to top what Putin said, would that be “respond in kinder,” (respond in more kind?”).
Anyway, I’m not sure but I think I liked Trump better*** when regarding him as Putin’s puppet.
You know, I’m the first to admit that I often dabble in the dark art of hyperbole here, but the more I think about it, and by “it” I mean you know who — and if you take a look at my blog stream it’s pretty evident I’ve been thinking about “it” a lot (too much) lately…
But the more I think about it the more convinced I am that Trump truly wants to turn the United States into a Putinesque autocracy.
I mean, what better gift to give (to himself), to a hyper elite who has everything than his very own country?
And by “own” I don’t mean plutocracy or oligarchy or any other odd-sounding undemocratically damning political systems, I mean “own” as in his and his alone.
And we’re talking not just any country, not some two-bit Second World almost ran country like Putin’s (note, I did not say Russia) — we’re talking a country founded on the very principles that oppose people like Trump… a country that found him his aristocratic ilk to be so revolting that they decided to revolutionize the place through revolution (like how I did that just now?).
Seriously, I think Trump sees what Putin did with Russian — i.e.****, make it his own — and, like the lifelong spoiled little megalomaniacal, HIGH MACH brat that he is and who will do anything to anyone that needs to be done to have his way, says to himself …
I want my own country, too.
And now he has one.
*Usually I would be cheeky here and say “boys” would be “non-gender specific; however, I’m 99.9% sure based on hisstory, that the Nuclear Power industry is pretty much run by, at least, a 99.9% all-boys club
**Or is it plutonium? I’m never sure which everlasting death-inducing nuclear power by-product works best for nuclear grade weapons.
***And since, as far as I know, zero times anything still equals zero, by better I mean not at all.
****Or is it “e.g.”? Like uranium v. plutonium, I’ll never get the difference between the two straightened out…
