Given that Trump seems to inspire strong pro/con reactions.....meaning that it's hard to feel neutral or indifferent towards him, coupled with standard of living decreases and easy access to guns in a population that does not always provide access to mental health help.....this could perhaps become a perfect storm with long term consequences.

    I'd be thrilled to be wrong here. Time will tell. Rob
    What sort of Trumpageddon perfect storm are you worried about, exactly? Some kind of uprising by MAGA-hatted armed militias? Crazy people with guns driven over the edge by their twitter feeds? Democratic Socialists striving for equality by liquidating the rich?

    Personally, I think we are a long way from Bosnia.

    Latest Fox News poll. 50% of voters think trump should be convicted and removed, compared to 44% who think he shouldnít. Next up, how the always trumpers say thatís good news for him. Martha mcsally, on the other hand, will continue to berate reporters by calling them liberal hacks if they dare to ask her thoughts on having an actual trial of the president. And lastly, pompeo channels judge rapey mcbeer in an interview with npr. He was shocked that the reporter has a better grasp than he does of where Ukraine is. No one was shocked that he was so pathetic in dealing with the press. Itís not one of his skills.

    You are not far off. How many trumpeteers have already caused violence by his manic tweets? trump spouting neo-nazis gatherings that have incited violence.... undoubtedly trump supporters. many in trumpís base are of this ilk.

    Whistleblowing should be encouraged!

    That;s something, that a Fox news poll shows that. Who is "Rapey" McBeer? Are you calling that person a rapist? Confused.

    I think Rapey McBeer refers to supreme court justice Kavanaugh.

    Oh, thank you--I was looking for someone named McBeer. Duh, on my part.

    I think we are so far away from some sort of social uprising or domestic conflict that it's not on the menu of possibilities. I'm much less sure about how far I trust Don J. on international issues and avoiding some sort of global destabilizing event. Among my historic what if's is, what if the Iranian attack on our airbase had actually taken several American lives. I don't trust the guy to make sound decisions, he doesn't seem to use his wizened and experienced advisers, and we've lost some standing in international support.

    Not that the same would ever repeat itself, but what if we had events along the same lines as a Cuban missile crisis.

    Itís hard for me to believe we are in for domestic violence on the order of the 1860s, or even the 1960s.

    Radical actors of today just punch their keyboard rather than blowing up buildings. Maybe that’s a good thing?
