Apparently "45" is having a tough time because the United States has all sorts of laws and regulations and that the guy at the top can't just do whatever he wants! So sad!

Too bad he ran for President. He should have waited for the election for Dictator or Autocrat. His mistake.

In other amusements, Rex Tillerson, former Exxon CEO and freshly-minted Secretary of State with no previous experience in government, wanted a person by the name of Elloitt Abrams as his second in command. Abrams has "decades of experience" in foreign service under Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. "45" said no. Abrams wrote an editorial during the election that was very critical of "45" and said Republicans should give up on the White House and focus on lower ticket races. So not only does Tillerson not really know what he's doing, he's denied a really skilled person who does know what he's doing. And all of the senior staff who knew exactly how the State Department worked are now all gone.

WHEEEEE!

There definitely are times when I wonder as to the merits of democracy, when results such as Trump come about.. still, heavy a toll as it'll have, maybe this will indeed give anybody who hasn't drunk the Kool Aid a kick up the rear, and remind everyone that politics is not a spectator sport.

If you're not entirely fed up with it all (or maybe especially if you are), you might enjoy checking in on the SLUniverse politics forum - it's an unlikely venue, being a site originally for Second Life, but the politics forum's populated by a wondrous assembly of wonks, some merely educated amateurs, plus a former staffer, and someone who's worked on translation-related editing for UN-related projects for a long while. It gets spirited, but it's essentially very liberal-minded.
