    The really scary thing is that some/many/all of these folks appear to be operating in a total vacuum,
    and appear to believe in some/much/all of what they are saying !!!

    3 little examples - some of them not so little.

    Weapons of Mass Destruction.
    Islamic State didn't arise because of the attacks on Iraq.
    US Defense spending is falling "behind".

    Falling behind who, we'd ask....

    My problem with right-wingers is not that they're 100% wrong about everything, it's that they're hypocrites.

    Trump bitched about Obama's travel expenses even though his are going to be more in 1 year than Obama spent in 8.

    He pissed and moaned about Obama playing golf, but he's played 13 rounds since the 1st of January.

    He still denies he lost the popular vote, justifying his false accusations of voter fraud.

    Every time he or one of his dupes is caught in an outright lie (an almost daily occurrence), their response is the equivalent of "I know you are, but what am I?"

    Lies, deceit, "alternative facts" are now apparently acceptable.

    All you righties who voted for him are responsible for his results. You sure made Putin happy.

    The "buyers' remorse" is growing by the hour.

    He couldn't get enough support to overturn the ACA, but get ready for tax cuts for the rich, shackles off for polluters and the selling of public lands to pay the National Debt. Imagine showing up for vacation at Yosemite National Park by Exxon/Mobil and watching the oil rigs pump.

    There is a problem with 'facts'. Every 'fact' is based on probability. Probability affects risk, if you assess risk in terms of likelihood and potential consequences. Whenever I hear a 'fact', I always consider there might be an agenda which is a reason for modifying the truth. All lies are designed to benefit somebody. What annoys me is when people seize upon the most unlikely alternative and try to sell it as truth. The alternative is to believe in God and disregard the evidence.

    Trumps credibility ( ???) has reached an all time low over here with his acceptance of the Saudis explanation of the Embassy killing.

    Do all right-wing politicians use xenophobia to keep them in power ? It seems to be pretty common around the world. We have a global population explosion and global warming - what do they expect to happen ?

    If we stopped buying oil from the Saudis, they might go broke - OR NOT !
