I have a house in Puerto Rico. Three bedrooms, a few blocks from the ocean, everyone's invited. But wait! Puerto Rico is part of the U.S. so chances are a passing nuclear cruiser, armed with cruise missiles will lob one at San Juan and one at Ponce and there goes that idea!
This guy scares the living shit out of me too Belle. He's capable of anything. But half the country thinks he's the bee's knees...
Look, we're Americans. We're here because no one else wanted us. They're not going to take us back. So we have to defend our little back yards and little pink houses with what ever means possible because it's all we got... Running? Not an option. In case you haven't heard most Europeans think we're jerks. My daughter has been in Belgrade, Serbia for the last five months on a scholarship and she can attest to the animus surrounding us Americans.
I can attest to one thing because I've seen it with my own eye's, we are the baddest MOFO's on the block. Being stationed on an aircraft carrier and maintaining state of the art jet aircraft will do that to you...
It's my dad's house and it's been pretty much abandoned since he passed. Stayed there when he got sick and the first night, trying to get some sleep, was a nightmare. You heard the Coquis (little tree frogs indigenous to the islands for anyone who never heard the name) but you also heard the feral cats fighting just outside the window and the dogs barking and the rooster's crowing and the crickets, and cicada's, and it was just bedlam out there! My dad slept through it. I had to go get ear plugs.
I agree with everything but your math. 10% of 48 months is 4.8 months.
But I'm too lazy to actually work it out more precisely!

She is using Trump math, she has a PhD fron Trump uNiversity, Her math is HUGE!!!
I do see and fear the possibility of something like a Putin + Trump World Oligarchy, but not as much as I feared before. It's interesting that Exxon's request for doing business with Russia has just been rejected by the Treasury Department. And other unsuccesses wrt his promises abound. Steve Bannon losing status and position (e.g. wrt military/homeland policy) is a big plus I didn't expect to happen so soon.
I have expected Bannon's eventual removal or demotions, because I pictured the Trump/Bannon team as using each other for personal gain or ideological expression. The republican held congress has not obliged them nearly as much as either had hoped!
The biggest thing I'm worried about now is how political motives can make the dog wag instead of the tail. Trump might find a need to start a war before the 2020 election. Terrorists probably bank on that possibility too, which might precipitate a major attack on us in order to get Trump to react.
Still, I'm basically optimistic! Thanks for not leaving us all alone here in the USA, yet. :)
I'll try this again with a better scale:
On a scale of zero to ten...how certain are you that there will be a war during trumps presidency:
From my part, I'd say about 2. What about you Belle? What about you thinkatheisters?
