New Arms Race

Post by 5waldos » Fri Dec 23, 2016 12:27 pm

So this morning Trump doubled down on his "thoughts" of yestday (interesting that he seems to have thoughts that are just 140 characters long) by saying So- if it's an arms race- bring it on. We will out do them and out last them at every turn (almost an exact quote). Now tomorrow it may mean something very different but for today- good lord.

And for a funny- what he said is nearly a direct quote from Survivors (the TV show). Not surprising since Mark Burnett was responsible for both Survivor and for The Apprentice, and is also directing the inauguration. Perhaps he can be the first to be kicked off the island?

Who exactly is he arms-racing against? Not Russia, surely. That leaves only China.

Randy Newman summed up the new Trump doctrine years ago
http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/randynew ... ience.html
Political Science"


No one likes us-I don't know why
We may not be perfect, but heaven knows we try
But all around, even our old friends put us down
Let's drop the big one and see what happens

We give them money-but are they grateful?
No, they're spiteful and they're hateful
They don't respect us-so let's surprise them
We'll drop the big one and pulverize them

Asia's crowded and Europe's too old
Africa is far too hot
And Canada's too cold
And South America stole our name
Let's drop the big one
There'll be no one left to blame us

We'll save Australia
Don't wanna hurt no kangaroo
We'll build an All American amusement park there
They got surfin', too

Boom goes London and boom Paree
More room for you and more room for me
And every city the whole world round
Will just be another American town
Oh, how peaceful it will be
We'll set everybody free
You'll wear a Japanese kimono
And there'll be Italian shoes for me

They all hate us anyhow
So let's drop the big one now
Let's drop the big one now

Most likely Russia yes. It all went tumbling around after Putin made some upgrading comments.

And Polar- yes, kaboom. Had forgotten that song. Guess it will be making a comeback.

Great tweet from one Scott Bixby:

"A new nuclear arms race was announced on a television show hosted by people in pajamas." (Joe and Mika- Morning Joe)

Neutron bomb Trump's first cabinet meeting!
That's the kind of bold flavor they enjoy in Albuquerque!
