And the entire Republican Party has become one giant in-crowd of professional grifters, most all of them getting rich, getting famous and/or getting laid in the process.
How could it happen that ‘good government’ could so decline/debase/degrade that the top dog in the oval office could even/ever agree to murder with drone strike technology? In an un-sick society the obvious would prevail: murder is not good government.
Note: soldiers are selected from stupid statistical ranks, get promoted to advisory high idiot levels, and militarize/dumb down dot govs: that plus covert agency psychopaths and categories like ‘national security’ at full bullshit levels, results? drone murder, very high tech, evil science… Oval office murder one syndrome…goodbye US: fascist endgames…plus presidents are selected for their stupidity, at best….
