I know Trump’s been in power for over a year, but I still haven’t fully come to terms with it.
I mean, never before Trump would I have ever considered that we would live in such an absurd and dangerous time where we would find a former CIA Director in a very public dispute with a sitting president, or in Trump’s case, a so-called sitting president.
In case you missed them, here are a few of John Brennan’s latest responses to Trump’s latest inanities:
Putin deals with any threat to his criminal regime through intimidation and murder.
At least Trump deals with the threats to his criminal behavior only through intimidation and firings.
No murders (that we know of). . .yet.
After months of bashing him on twitter and calling for his firing, Andrew McCabe, a career FBI agent, is the latest threat to Trump to be fired, which happened only 24-hours before McCabe was to retire, thereby stripping him of his government pension.
Trump is both Putin’s evil sycophant puppet, and a heartless, evil, small-handed dick.
For somehow it managed to capture this reoccurring dream of mine:

GREED AND THE CONSTITUTION
A Novel Pair
By Larry Kahaner
I enjoy writing about greed.
It’s an emotion that intrigues me because I’m not a greedy person, so I’m fascinated by those who are. I want to understand it, and, for me, this means writing about it. In the course of writing I see all sides, and most, if not all of the ramifications.
I’m in a perfect position to do this because I’ve been a business journalist and reporter for about 30 years. I’ve written about 20 books, some under my own name, and others were ghostwritten. I’ve worked in newspapers, magazines, newsletters, the web… you name it. I’m also a licensed private investigator and one of my niches was cult investigations. These groups are almost always headed by a greedy son-of-a-bitch.
First, let’s define greed. It’s when you have more than enough money, power, whatever gets you excited, but you want more. It’s more than you could ever use, enjoy or hope to maintain by yourself. Does greed lead to immoral behavior? Well, you could argue that greed itself is immoral, to which I agree, but more often than not, greed often becomes an obsession that can no longer be quenched through legal or moral activity.
Samuel L. Jackson caused a bit of a buzz recently for his complaint about British actors being cast in roles written for American characters, partly because, he believes, British actors are cheaper hires.
So, essentially what I am hearing is…
With words full of mystical might
Wise Prophets forebode unto thee
Thine future of terrors and frights
For only a nominal fee
