If you have viewed the movie Idiocracy then you know the scene I'm referring to. If not, you can view the movie at

Idiocracy Director Says It's 'Scary' How Accurate His Movie Has Become

QUOTE A Bit:  “And then Donald Trump being in the WWF before, and talking about his bleep size,” Judge continued, referring to the Republican nominee for president and his past with the World Wrestling Federation, a nod to the fact that the president in the film is a wrestling star. “It’s just one specific thing after another!”

Whenever I hear or read something like that, albeit interesting & funny, I like to remind myself the following:

...And yet we live in the best times that the Earth has ever seen, pretty much anywhere on it, as compared to any other period ever in the history of frickin' time.

Edward Gibbon may disagree.
 

If a man were called to fix the period in the history of the world, during which the condition of the human race was most happy and prosperous, he would, without hesitation, name that which elapsed from the death of Domitian to the accession of Commodus. The vast extent of the Roman empire was governed by absolute power, under the guidance of virtue and wisdom. The armies were restrained by the firm but gentle hand of four successive emperors, whose characters and authority commanded involuntary respect. The forms of the civil administration were carefully preserved by Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, and the Antonines, who delighted in the image of liberty, and were pleased with considering themselves as the accountable ministers of the laws.


To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

Sri Lanka rubbish dump collapse kills 16 - BBC News

 

QUOTE A BIT.....

At least 16 people, including four children, have died after a huge rubbish dump collapsed on to their homes in Sri Lanka.

The 300ft-high (91m) pile of rotting debris had shifted after floods and a fire then collapsed on Friday.

At least 40 homes on the edge of the dump were destroyed, with four children aged between 11 and 15 killed.

Holy sh@t. I can't believe it. Donald Trump was in the WWE and this is the guy we voted for president. Now I am scared.

Isn't that actually better, though? In the sense that Donald Trump has been a pretty big part of TV entertainment throughout the years and you can actually go and check what he has produced, whereas Hillary Clinton has done 'all the correct things' in terms of her job experience, but you can just tell by her look and her mannerism that there is some shady stuff going on and she just appears better on paper, lol?
I have said it before and I will say it again: I'd much rather prefer any honest idiot, even if that means the Donald, to be a president, than even the best candidate in terms of experience if he/she is as obviously corrupt and power-hungry as Hillary Clinton.
I actually wanted Marco Rubio to win and in terms of the following election I'd like either Michael Bloomberg or Mitt Romney to run.
All in all, it's just 4 years that the USA will have to bear with Donald Trump as president, so no worries, amirite...:lmao:

Oh yeah, and I forgot to add. Don't you think that in a sense Donald Drumpf becoming POTUS is the best thing ever for people who believe that the world is super-corrupt and controlled by a handful of Rothschilds - people who are somewhat conspiracy theorists and believe that 'the game is rigged'?
Well, Donald Trump as president must be the single biggest evidence that this is not the case and that in this world, albeit not being 100% fair all the time, you are the maker of your own destiny.
I mean, there is no way in heaven's hell that a small all-powerful, all-seeing & all-controlling elite would pick this guy on a position such as president of the USA. No way! :lmao:
And in terms of Hillary Clinton's side, you get a pretty solid case that whoever you are, whoever backs you up, whatever amount of resources you pour into your campaign, if the people don't trust you or like you, you are not getting elected for sh*t.
But hey, that's just my way of looking at the election of Donald Trump as POTUS in an optimistic way. :)
