The usual out-of-bounds rules apply.
. No flame wars
. No religeon
. No racism
. No bitching
. No petit squabbles
. And consider all viewpoints before writing something you'll regret.

but there's too much utter shit going on to ignore this.

What in the name of holy fucking hell is going on in the world?!

I know that any sane person would not condone waterboarding, trump does apparently condone it, but he does also have the same view as any sane person when it comes to cutting off people's heads.

The phrase "he couldn't possibly be THAT bad!" has long since become irrelevant..

Giving too much time, attention and coverage to evil actions has lead us to this point. There is a reason that some proverbs like below existed. Linkage

The world has reached a critical point of inequality that has aided the leaders in directly addressing to the dark side of people and capturing their support.

Yeah it is like Hitler rounding up the Jews, but we also need to remember that ISIS and other religious nutjobs are just as bad if not worse than Hitler, those lot are planning to kill off anyone that's white or Westerner and will succede in taking over the planet if the lefties keep being left in charge.

Anjem Choudary wants us all forced into his bullshit way of life and also wants us all put into slavery; he also wants to ban the playing of music, ban the internet and make us live in old clothes while wearing just the one shoe. Now then, still want the lefties to have their own way?, well I bloomin' well don't!, taking away a geek's computer is just plain cuntish.

And, before anyone accuses me of being "right wing", I'll have you know that I'm straight down the middle, everyone has the right to do as they please as long as it's not harmful to others.

Roll on the armageddon train.

I really hope I'm wrong here but I can't see anything good happening globally unless you happen to be one certain Vladimir Putin.

I'd expect the EU to eventually be broken down into pieces shortly after a couple more countries leave one way or the other.

NATO to then be broken down also as a result.

With Europe in a state of disarray, I'd expect Putin to sweep in and claim more land.

It just seems like the world is going through a fairly "crazy" isolationist period, with the possibility of removing great swathes of the poor, weak and elderly whilst focuses go towards some form of War Effort.

As I said, I really hope I'm wrong here.

Nah, the Jews were rounded up for extermination.

The phony Hollywood and media and protester outrage over this is pathetic. When Jimmy Carter temporarily banned Iranians, nobody complained. When Obama temporarily banned Iraqis, nobody complained.

However, President Trump temporarily blocks the 7 countries on the list that Obama made (some of which Obama even bombed), and suddenly people are pissed?

I am glad we have a president who actually keeps his promises and does what he says he will do and also takes the security of our country seriously.

The Trump thing for me is... Well, as I see it personally, peering from afar, is that the citizens were pretty much sick and tired of the politics they had in place, and wanted a change... And for me, there is nothing wrong with that.

The US isnt going to be a new Nazi regime setup, the similarities are few and far between, for one, Germany was forced into decline after the World War 1 Armistice, The Treaty of Versailles pulverised the German people, Britain actually thought it was too hard on them, the French thought it wasnt hard enough... When Hitler was voted in as Chancellor, the Germans were actually voting against democracy, they had enough of it!

I firmly believe the US as a whole strongly believes in democracy, the Trump presidency isn't a regime, and it never could be for a number of reasons, it'll never cross them lines because if it did, as I see it, and I may be wrong, but the second amendment ultimately controls how far the federal government goes, its the ultimate full stop... Anything more, and you are indeed talking, civil war, which, by the US constitution, would be perfectly legal.

We all know that isnt going to happen!

The more worry for me current affairs wise, is probably closer to home... Italian banks being just about fucked, Greece still teetering on a Grexit, fighting in Ukraine, Europe still has major issues and the Trump thing has generally clouded them for the time being.

I know we are leaving the EU, and to be fair, I do 100% think we will be fine, but just because we are leaving, the EU's still next door and anything that goes on there will affect us, and to be fair to Trump on one regard... There are only 5 NATO nations out of 28 that fill their 2% GDP towards defence promise... UK, US, Greece, Poland and Estonia!

That just isnt good enough... Germany paid 1.3%, and this is the power house European nation who is hammering the Greeks and secretly want them out of the EU, but they are totally skint and still muster the required 2%. There is a total imbalance and Trump and May are right to call the other 23 nations out on it...

Again, even with us gone in the political scene, I do have a feeling in my stomach that Europe will still need the UK and the US like they have for the past 100 years, and regardless on how they treat us when the Brexit negotiations start, we'll be there, doing what we do best... Try and sort European shit out when said shit hits the fan!

You know the world has gone to shit when the only ones who can give you a sane representation are comedians.

I keep laughing, but mostly because it's all so sad
