Don’t hold your breath, nothing’s coming

Fearmongering and hate always prevail. He will be vindicated, not repudiated in these polls. There will be no accountability, no checks and balances. Appealing to base fears and prejudices is a proven and reliable way to fire up voters.

It’s not the economy, stupid, it’s disease-ridden immigrants.

I have always bet on the worst outcome because humans. I only lost that bet in 2008.

Please make me lose again.

Not all Muslims are violent extremists, but there are a small number of them who espouse extremist beliefs and have resorted to violence. These extremist Muslims have terrorised those who do not agree with their beliefs and threatened people and families that are different from them. These extremist Muslims are a danger to society and should be purged, and the good Muslims should contribute to weeding them out. Muslims should report extremist and potentially violent Muslims to the police. If Muslims keep quiet, if they do not forcefully denounce extremist Muslims in their midst, then they are complicit in the crimes. Silence among Muslims in the face of violence perpetrated by these groups is tantamount to endorsement of the agenda of extremist Muslims. Muslims should prove their decency and respect for the law and American society by condemning and castigating the extremist Muslims in their midst.*

* replace "Muslims" with "Trump supporters" in the text; read again and see how you feel.

Hate trumps everything

In 2008 I predicted McCain will will because Americans are too racist to vote for Obama. Today I predict Trump will win because majority of Americans are racist, bigoted, misogynist, and gullible enough to fall for the empty bragging of a populist charlatan. I really hope to be proven miserably wrong again.

Hey, Pro-Life People

What happened to your "Thou shalt not kill" placards? You made a big deal about them during the reproductive health law debates. You were very concerned about the state giving its imprimatur to killing the unborn and the yet-to-be-fertilised. I would've thought you'd be equally concerned about the state giving its imprimatur to killing the born.

Apostles' Creed

I believe in the President almighty, bringer of life and death.

I believe in the War on Drugs, His central cause, ours too.
Drugs were perpetrated by drug lords, borne by pushers, consumed by addicts;
have corrupted, co-opted, and compromised society.
We have descended into hell.
In the previous administration the drug trade rose again;
they peddled it from prison, seated drug lords in government;
they will come again to blight the living and the dead.

I believe in the righteousness of killing criminals,
the infallible packing tape and cardboard,
the curse of human rights monitors,
the conspiracy of yellow-tinted media,
the narcopolitical opposition,
and the final victory of the President, everlasting.

Amen.

Doomed to repeat it

There was a time when the mere allegation of Marcosian tendencies was enough to make a politician back down from authoritarian leanings. Now, politicians are openly suggesting the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, a constitutional dictatorship, and a remilitarisation of the police.
