Friday's Fulminations

There is mild moderation.  Normal rules of blogger etiquette and courtesy to blog hosts will apply.with serious transgressors being thrown out.

Unfortunately our system does not allow your comments to show up in the blog post itself.  Just in the comments section.

Visitors might consider the wisdom of using moderate language.

Just a thought to ponder over the festive season and as NZ is a farming country I think it might be relevant.....In the US more Framers commit suicide than returned servicemen, that is a surprise but the US farmer suicide crisis echoes a much larger farmer suicide crisis happening globally: an Australian farmer dies by suicide every four days; in the UK, one farmer a week takes his or her own life; in France, one farmer dies by suicide every two days; in India, more than 270,000 farmers have died by suicide since 1995.

You think food is easy?

There's a train of opinion that if you bequeath the family farm to your kids you should be done for child abuse.

Does Donald Trump know where Jerusalem is? No, of course not. Does he know the competing claims to that speck of land? Of course not.

Does Donald Trump give in to flattery? Sure does.

His "decision" on Jerusalem was made at the urging of American Zionists who want nothing less than the elimination of all Palestinians (gas ovens no longer required), and at the behest of The Religious Reich who see Jews holding sway in Jerusalem as a necessary precursor to the end times.

The US Embassy could already be open in Jerusalem, all they need to do is change the sign on the consulate door.

Oh dear, the Moscow troll has awoken. If it's not the Muslims it's the Jews the only thing they have in common is that they are not a race but a religion therefore an easy target that cannot reply or fight back.

The embassy, like the wall, will never be built. Purely a diversion by a desperate man despised by the majority of his own country. So far only two countries have recognised Jerusalem as the capital, Vanuatu and Taiwan, Embassies cannot exist in isolation.

Our personal opinions of Trump aside, you may suggest he is despised by the majority of his own country[men]. However it appears he's on track for his second term.

The majority of what he does is not playing to you or me or the international audience, but for his support base. He speaks directly to them and they like that.

Para....If what you say is true it is a damning indictment of the US electoral system if the will of 38% wins over 62%*
