    Yes what will 2022 bring us? Yes again 3 to 4 tornado's ripped through our county in FL. Luckily we were spared, but are still trying to clear the mess of the one we got. But since this is America the "rip off" games are sure taking advantage of it. Plenty of work for the "contractors" who are in limited supply due to the Covid. So it will take time and lots of effort to get things back to normal. So we just hang in there and try to get things fixed. Maybe I have to start "begging" just like Trump does to pay for it all. I would love to move, but the Covid overseas is neither yet under control; so we got to take our time and have patience.

    I guess no one will miss my writing anyway, looking at the couple of writers we still have.

    Yes, indeed the past has not been an lesson here. The DNA is screwed up. Sorry may be I repeat myself, but I try to compare what is happening here with other countries, but that is difficult because of the weird way people here are elected as well incomplete laws and strange mentalities. I don't think Canada is in the same turmoil as us, regardless of the Covid.

    You can't have an "system" which dates from 1776 without daily updates; the "Amendments" are only a few, but not sufficient. Some Amendments need updates, such as the "Second Amendment", which is even worse right now and totally outdated.

    Sorry but our 'freedom" has created an "monster" culture without proper laws updated to the times. Bully's take advantage of it and run the "brainless" show. "Freedom" should have limits, but not here. It shows, let's rob an whole cargo train and toss the packages all over; but nowhere any cops. ( this happened in LA). There is no "discipline" at all in this society; neither in the government. Shaking my old head in disgust.

    Trump is an example on how you can "bully" your way in with lies and mis-information. This shows how weak our system of governing has become. I fear 2024 will prove that the system is absolutely not "crook" prove.

    And you still think that this is an "normal" country? But yeah what is Biden doing to stop this "mentality" and let Trump do what he wants? In any other country this guy and his cohorts would be in jail or shot and not collecting the "dough".

    Why does Trump still gets his "pension" and other "goodies" as well collects "millions" from his "buddies"?

    If all of this is allowed, then forget 2022 midterm and 2024 elections.

    All of this has nothing at all to do with "democracy" but pure "mafia" indoctrination. Heil Hitler!

    Schmidt, I guess as I've said a million times, that the "education" of our elected members in the government is "awful".

    I've written so often that "qualifications" to get any function in the government is not done as in any "industry". Right now you get people who certainly " know" nothing about human interfaces let alone "governing". The "election" process is just laughable; as I've seen with Kavanaugh etc. Let alone an Jordan, what is his "qualification"? So the point is as long as nothing is done about such, forget any "normalcy" in governing. And Biden himself could use his "unused" powers to do something about that, but does n't. As long as no one cleans up on it, forget this country; it will stay as it is, because no new improved laws are designed/made, to prevent the present "chaos" from continuing forever.

    If you look at the "stock market" of the past few weeks, then it clearly shows on how slowly but surely certain "elements" in our society are trying to "ruin" this country. Short sellers galore. Looking at the total picture of what is happening all over, means the "balances" in just about everything are being "broken". Inflation is the sign that things are erratic and the Fed's are loosing grip on the economy. The way things look also politically, then I belief 2022 will be an "messy" year for the most of us, of course except the "billionaires". Enjoy!!

    Guy, yes you've got the picture; and there are more of those types in the government. Like I've said so many times that this government structure and its "selection" process is outdated, because none of our laws are up to date. Since our Constitution still is the same as 1n 1800. Only an "living" base law works, not the "model" used here.

    You can't run an big country as this without "discipline" and "unified" oversight. Especially with an two party system.

    I worked and lived all over, but I've never been in any country were the "system" is so "messed" up as with as here.

    In Europe or even Canada you don't have continuous fights in the government about for instance on how to vote and who can vote. Its laughable for sure. By "electing" Trump, it showed exactly how dumb this nation is. The priorities are all wrong as well the "mindset". Priority "one" here is how can you become "billionaire"; not how you can make this an better run country. Money and incompetence run the show, not "uniformity" let alone 50 unruly States with their own made laws and sometimes "bully's to suit them. The zillion "ego tripping" lawyers here make the mess only bigger but not better.

    Since this country never had an "dictator" (except Trump) then it is time to get an President who drastically changes all this ridiculous undefined "Freedom" into an more disciplined "unified" structure. Amen

    Just keep on tinkering with "voting rights"; while people have been voting for more than a hundred years. Nothing is "solid" in this government structure and its laws or rules. I've been voting overseas for years and the "system" works without changes or complaints. I guess here they like to upset the apple cart all the time. Just make the "rules" simple and straightforward as done overseas. Why all this hoopla and idiotic recounting etc. Why make it more difficult than it is?

    But yeah it seems here part of the "game" undermine it all the way that will keep the lawyers and "crooks" happy.

    If you looked at Fareed's program, then it is clear that a lot of elements of Nazi Germany are re-surfacing. As you mention the "brown shirts". Yes the present people here have no notion of what did happen under Hitler, so they just re-invent it.

    The "system" here allows such, because our type of "democracy" has no limits in it for anything; "freedom of speech" here is the noose around this countries neck. It is very clear that the Constitution makers never foresaw what the "future" would bring in mentality and "indoctrination" via an total other "media" than available in 1776. However our "leaders" used all these anomalies to their advantage, as well the "zillion" lawyers here. In an large country as this, with any type of people living on this globe, then you need strict "discipline" on all fronts of governing as well "solid" laws. None of this is the case, so no wonder "chaos" and Nazi-ism gets to roam free. Just look at on how the "Covid" is dealt with; the government can't even "mandate" things because of the "cowboy" culture here. Sorry, but this country still has a lot to learn on how to govern in modern times. Amen

    Schmidt; quite simple it is the "money" he gets from the "coal" industry buddies as well other crooks in W.Virginia. That whole State is run by a bunch of Republicans who like to "hunt" and "drink" and rip off tourists. The same attitude as in Siberia. But yeah it shows how weak an Biden is ; Manchin should have been kicked out long ago. The "system" is at fault ; the individual States have way too much individual power, as I've said so many times. In Europe "provinces" have not the power as here ; "limits" are missing in the Constitution for it. The Fed's should decide what is good for the whole country; not just one lone person from any province or State.

    Last night Fareed showed some "history". Indeed he's just about the only person who got it right. like the French say: L'histoire ce repette. Indeed it looks like the GOP have become the Nazi "types" . Looking at all the things which are happen right now and our "weak" system of governing and all the "negative" things around us, like the Covid and Omicron, supply shortage ; ships which can't be unloaded, as well weather issues all over and still the total "incompetent" GOP and its dumb ass senators who help to destroy the "democracy" in this country etc. will have its effect on the future here.

    "Chaos" is the right word. In the meantime the rich made sure that they "cashed in" while the country goes downhill.

    The "future" will not be kind to this country if it does not show an strong "backbone"; it is only "talk" and shoving "money" in an certain directions. All of this is bound to fail; no wonder Bloomberg stepped out of the election. Amen
