    Re: US Downgraded From Full Democracy to Flawed Democracy

    I am encouraged by some of the reactions to several of the Executive actions.
    A Federal Court just blocked the "Muslim Ban" from interrupting the trips of a number of legal Residents. It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out.
    I think he is testing the waters to see how many people are really paying attention.
    I do hope that he comes to his senses, soon.

    I'm not certain Trump minds the judicial interruption in reality - he needs put on a show for his supporters. My guess would be that in his mind Trump needs to hold on to his small, yet very active and engaged supporters until his decisions begin to have a positive effect on how the government is run. His supporters are the key in dragging whatever republican lawmakers are weak-kneed along before the infatuation wears off - which it will, and is what less nervous republicans are waiting for.

    He kinda reminds me of the the old story about the young boy at the circus entertaining himself with poking a circus bear in a cage with a stick, and giggling with delight every time the bear roars in frustration.

    It would seem the British don't want the man to be allowed a State Visit and have to shake our Queens hand with the same hand he has been grabbing lady parts,allegedly.

    It looks like Trump is kissing up to the neocons by leaving Saudia Arabia off his ban list. Is he negotiating something behind the scenes? I've read where he's beginning to try and make amends here and there.

    If so, there goes the revolution.

    I've heard from several of his supporters. It is frightening. They completely overlook the details, of his mess and simply hang on to "A politician that keeps his promises."
    I ask for details on exactly what promises he has kept, and the point to the wall. "He's gonna build the wall."
    "Who's going to pay for it?" I ask.
    "Oh, he says that Mexico will pay."
    Sheeeesh!

    That there is some huge and used hands lady liberty has. Not very attractive to the average male. But I do like the avatar.

    Lady Liberty has had to work hard all her life. No trophy wife with lithe hands and decorated nails is she.

    I get the impression he is loving the fuss he's causing.
    Trump's crying Schumer put down is a classic bully boy response, his macho followers will love it.

    far right brexiters have now started a pro trump petition. And yes, I think you are right about the bully boy. Even knowing it is true it is hard to believe such a spoiled child is in the White House.

    I do wonder how long this energy will last. I don't have the impression he enjoys working out details but he does enjoy headlines, so I expect him to go on with big pen strokes and maximum noise. But anything else? Not so sure. He'll be making sure his businesses prosper, at a guess.
