Can't stump the Trump.

Whether you like Trump or not, we need him as President.

We don't need Trump as president because he would necessarily make the USA a better place, but because it would be more entertaining than anything to ever happen in American politics. Imagine, waking up on a Thursday morning and sitting in traffic on your way to work. You hate your job, you hate your boss, and you hate where you live. But you know, that there is an egotistical tanning-bed loving billionaire tycoon flying around the world on a jet, screaming into the phone at other countries' leaders. He's tweeting about the "tremendous success" of the Mexican wall, he's tweeting photos of himself hanging out with Putin, he's writing executive orders on a weekly basis, he's slapping down tariffs on trade with China like it's nothing, he's shit talking the media for recreation, and he's yelling at you about job growth on cable TV.

 We NEED somebody who will run this country like a business.

Here's a fact. Americans are fucking nervous. People have foreclosed on their homes, they've lost their jobs, they've had to move around the country to find new jobs, they've moved in with family members, they've taken on 2-3 jobs at once just to pay a SHITTY rent payment.

We're sick of this bullshit. Social justice is worthless if there aren't any jobs. We need jobs. We need a president who knows business. We need a president who can bring back manufacturing.

Have you seen the way our country has become? It's a fucking joke compared to what it once was, we are ruled by stupid Politically correct jargon amongst other things. Trump is tapping into that anger. That is why many of the social welfare and political class  are scared shitless, they can't go against the people who donated to them.

Trump can anger as many people as he wants as he has the funds and resources to back up his claims, he will continue to double down until the campaign ends.

The Donald's recipe is to play hardball and stop America from getting bent all the time and be at the mercy of interests that often conflict with those of the American people who the president is supposed to represent (rather than being the shill of some interest groups). Remember that he's talking off the cuff. He's played by the same rules as everyone else as a businessman and thinks it's not good for America, and he's right, it's definitely not good in the longer term.

I like the comment he made about China and other countries having geniuses as negotiators and America having incompetents. Now, clearly there's hyperbole, but he makes a valid point about how it seems like some actually important but not necessarily the most visible roles have become like awards. You need tough and smart people to close deals, not nice guys, SJWs, and idealists. You need people who understand how the world works. Obama projected weakness from the beginning of his presidency, and inevitably many of his appointments also project weakness. Considering all his administration has done, I only wonder what kind of people, including people not even working primarily in the interests of the US, he had doing important negotiations and handling diplomacy. The age-old dynamics of power haven't really changed so a healthy dose of cynicism is needed not to get fucked over because in your heart of hearts you want to believe in humans and thereby become vulnerable and get your weakness exploited.

Having a personality like Donald Trump as president would seriously make me believe that I am living in the greatest country on earth. Vote for Trump for American history. Vote for Trump for global butthurt. But most importantly, vote for Trump for the lulz.

The 7 Deadly sins...

To most people, they are just bible mumbo-jumbo. But if you really read into them, you'll understand why our world is so fucked up almost beyond repairing.

Rated from the most destructive to the least.

1. Greed. This one has its own place in the list. Greed is by far the most destructive sin of them all. Over a billion people are starving every day and nobody gives a flying fuck. Resources are centred around the richest areas in the planet and the rest scrape by on our waste.

2. Pride. As Greed is the most destructive sin, Pride is the one enabling most of it. You are a proud citizen of your country. The "best" country in the world. Why should you give a F about other nationalities. They are "lesser" than you... right?
Wrong. We are all humans first. Education level should come second and anything even remotely nationalistic is destructive in itself.

3.Sloth. This is maybe surprising but its not actually. So many brilliant minds sitting at home jerking off, scrolling through the endless shit-posting instead of using their brains to do good. People aren't actually born lazy, they become that way by living in the current world.

4. Envy. Most hatred today is fuelled by Pride but also Envy. You don't like certain individuals because they are better than you. Even if you are the top 1% you are envious of your fellow 1%:er and this behaviour has passed down all the way to the bottom-feeders. Without Envy, there would be (almost) no reason to commit crime.

5. Gluttony. We horde everything. Most people that read this probably own more stuff than they will ever use. The resources used to make that junk could instead have been distributed elsewhere were it could have done something better.

6. Wrath. Most people may have expected wrath to be higher up, but wrath in it self doesn't do much harm. Combined with the other sins it could become much worse. Its kinda like a gun. Its only as dangerous as the person pulling the trigger.

 7. Lust. This sin is the reason a lot of women and men are treated like meat. Rape and sexual objectification is a real problem. Most people may say "its my body I choose to do whatever I want with it." but Its actually powerful people that enable this kind of behaviour.
However as with Wrath, by itself it doesn't do much harm.

They may have been thought up and written down over 2000 years ago. But these sins are what is destroying our world. Wake up people It has been going on for centuries.
