Daily prompt: My year’s fine, how’s civilisation’s?

Thanks, Hindsight
How is the year shaping up for you so far? Have your predictions come true, or did you have to face a curve ball or two?

As I was floating around in the surf yesterday, I was struck by a thought so outrageous I couldn’t believe it was mine.

What I thought was, if you put Donald Trump’s rhetoric together with the Republican majority in the House (presumably on his side), would you get Armageddon?

Then I thought Well bugger me, a doomsayer yet, and you not even believing in Armageddon! Yeah yeah, pull the other one!

But the thought had all the horrible fascination of rotting tooth, and I had to keep prodding it.

Mr Trump has declared himself in favour of ‘bombing the shit’ out of ISIS (which would involve ‘collateral damage’ in Syria and Iraq), banning Muslims from entering the US and ‘forcing’ China to ‘deal with’ North Korea, any one of which could have repercussions nastier than his arrogance permits him to foresee.

If that happened, The Don (on previous indications) would lose his wig and demand instant retaliation on a global scale, everyone would get bomb-happy and poof! There goes civilisation (such as it is).

See? I told you it was outrageous. But fascinating, you have to admit.

  1. Remarkably, we survive this crap. We’ll survive this too.

    Oh, I think The Donald as Prez would cause a mass exodus, because many of us are already frightened that so many folks are taking him seriously. The fear is being fed partly because of Mr. Let’s Avoid Confronting Anyone But Congress For 8 Years. We’ve been on our own for 8 years, now. But he can sing, you know. *sigh…

    This is what we are all scared might happen! At least those of us who aren’t voting for the fool.

  4. If politics – right or left – had a theme song it would be: BRING IN THE CLOWNS.
