    I like his point about money. I've been both in the situation where I have money and where I do not. I much prefer for people not to know whether I have money.

    I know of one person who stopped hanging with her friends after Trump was elected. Was it the right choice? It's hard to say. There may have been unhealthy dynamics.

    And Carpo makes great points.

    Not to split hairs, Wind but between cold wars, military colleges were making that very argument and succeeding. The world doesn't need the United States to be the world's police. What they need is a united world kick-ass military. A rogue nation gets out of line, the world force moves in and neutralizes them. THEN, a designated world police force (in the fashion of the United Nations but much meaner) moves in and attends to the psychological, physical, and emotional needs of those that just had their asses kicked. These, call them services to use a polite euphemism, include restoration of infrastructure, medical facilities, even building of roads with 'traffic signs and lights', ... did you see what I just did there, whoo weee, I'm clever, in short, nation building.

    I don't think re-education camps were part of the formula, but what the hell, why not?!

    I haven't seen the 15 minutes free thinking t-short before, I don't think. I like it. He still has a face for TV or movies. Those features are so bold. And he has a good voice too. This one's good. Short and sweet. I like his message.
