    You might like this article then. "Donald Trump has transformed the decayed carcass of the Republican Party into a cult. All cults are personality cults. They are extensions of the cult leaders. The cult reflects the leader’s prejudices...

    Impeachment Trump tried to do stand up comedy in Minnesota last night, imitating a guy having sex with his girlfriend. Yes, indeed that. I can hardly believe we have a POTUS who acts this way. He...

    A.P. Fourteen.

    We can not have enough boards. Of all the 'new' component types that can still be produced - new mapboards and scenarios are fun to have and the whole object here is.. fun. We have the counters, we have the rulebook. New boards stimulate scenario design - as Evan says. Pete, Evan, Bill...

    America - at a Crossroads

    I agree that there's quite some space in terms of events between now and dictatorship - and yes, there are unmentioned other checks (ie. military intervention) that could prevent that from happening. Nevertheless, such things aren't unheard of in history and to imagine that America is immune...

    America - at a Crossroads

    It would be hard to overestimate the crisis that now exists in America. Here's what we have: a President who believes himself above the law / ordained by God his private political party behind him - unwilling to challenge him mainly because they fear for their own careers 30-40% of the...

    What did you do during the war

    Trump has no friends. As such he has no appreciation for allies. He has no appreciation for why they're needed. He believes, like a fool, that he and America need no friends. Following a fool like Trump will lead us all to ruin.

    Trumping Truth
