      by ANDREW LEVINE

      After all the votes were counted and the dust finally settled, it became clear that Democrats scored huge victories in the midterm elections last November. This wasn’t clear right away because some of the contests in “red” states were close, but the “blue wave” actually did materialize.

      Even for those of us who thought at the time that the only good thing about the Democratic Party is that the Republican Party is seriously worse, this was good news.

      It was bad news for Donald Trump. He wasn’t technically on the ballot and neither were the family members and others he turns to for advice or the ignoramuses he dug up to do the actual governing when malign neglect just isn’t enough, but they all lost big time.

      What is bad for them is good for the nation and the world. Trump could start a nuclear holocaust in a fit of pique, and his environmental policies are nearly as dangerous. His presidency poses a clear and present danger to life on earth “as we know it.”

      No Mr. Levine, you’re wrong. The actual existential threat to life on earth (not “as we know it.” – at all) is not a narcissistic huckster with delusions of demagoguery, it is the possibility (now realized) that a fascistic party believes that they have won a mandate to take control of the government and rule in the interest of their corporate masters rather than any concept (except an infantilizing contempt) of the American people.

      In your overwrought, Chicken Little attempt to obscure legitimate dangers (probably because you personally benefit from them) you are allowing, in fact supporting, a pack of corrupt Mussolini clones achieve a level of power that the real Mussolini only saw in masturbatory fantasies.

      (What doh1304 said but without the Chicken Little reference.)

      As warmongers go, Clinton stands on the shoulders of Presidents Obama and Bush jr. , while Trump simply stands like a drunk toddler in a windstorm.

      First time I read it, what came to mind was “male bovine excrement”.  Yup.  Yep.  In no universe would the world be better than it would have been if Hillary won.  Of all the heinous disgusting no-I-cannot-vote-for-it warmongering austerity-loving candidates in the world – the DNC/Democratic Party forced Hillary onto the ballot.

      What’s bad for conservative ‘racists’ (AOC’s term for Donald) and ‘pathological liars’ (Bernies’ term) is often good for our 99% and the rest of the world. Climate change knows no national boundaries.

      When you think you have no choice but to start a war, think again. Wars promise to be quick, clean and decisive. Wars lie. They cause more problems than they solve, they just won't tell you that beforehand.
