I don't really have a point. I'm just angry.

Last night I was reading a bunch of Eisenhower quotes. I do that when it becomes apparent that we might actually be heading into war. Again.

The one everyone knows

And it struck me that today's GOP is not worthy of Ike. Of course, the irony is that, were he alive today, today's GOP would call him a RINO and  do its damndest to kick him out of the party. They'd call him a socialist.

But hate gets votes, Ike

All I do know is that none of what happened last night - the ballistic missiles launched at US bases in Iraq - had to happen. We had a deal with Iran. A deal they were abiding by. A deal that gave us a semblance of peace.

So... Trump? Wait, no.

But then we elected some motherfucker who decided to tear that deal up because... ego? insecurity? racism? small dick energy?

Yes.

Then he kills an Iranian General.

Fuck war bonds, invest in war!

Military stocks skyrocket.

Iran retaliates.

What happens next?

I honestly don't know.

I know that I wish we had literally any other leaders than those we have. But then we wouldn't be in this mess.

One of these days, Ike. One of these days.

No music. No sprinkles.
