Fasten your seat belt tight for the next occupant

The beginning of 2017 will see a new president in the White House, that means the next four or eight years (if the White House occupant wins a second term) is not going to augur well for the US. The correct phrase is: It will be disastrous for the US and the world. The reason being that whatever minor difference there are between the two parties, when it comes to kicking an ass of some underdeveloped country, the difference between both parties almost disappears.

Major Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is a great warrior. She was one of the main architects behind the ouster of the Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi and pushing that country in the throes of a civil war. If she gets elected, she sure is going to drag this country into war/s and will prove herself the female version of George W. Bush, the guy who gave the world Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Republican presidential candidate, billionaire Donald Trump, a racist, is not only going to give us wars but will also try to hurt the tourist business in China by building a wall on the US/Mexican border and thus pulling tourists away from the Great Wall of China and bringing them to the Hate Wall of Trump.

Retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson is another Republican presidential candidate who would like to send ground troops to fight and defeat ISIS.

The right wingers everywhere are always close to God and get signal from the Almighty to mess up the people and country they don’t like. In 2013, Carson told Fox TV’s Sean Hannity,

If the Lord grabbed me by the collar and made me do it (run for president).”

But now he has mellowed that statement by telling David Brody of the Christian Broadcast Network,

I feel fingers. But it’s mostly me. I have to be sure and it’s part of my personality that says always look before you leap but don’t leap before you have to.”

In an interview to the Fox TV, Carson who doesn’t believe in restrictions on armed forces, that is, giving free hand to the forces to commit as many crimes and in any manner they want, said,

“Our military needs to know that they’re not going to be prosecuted when they come back because somebody has said you did something that was politically incorrect.” “There is no such thing as a politically correct war. We need to grow up. We need to mature.”

Carson firmly believes that the Egyptian pyramids are not the royal tombs but were built to store grains:

“My own personal theory is that [Biblical] Joseph built the pyramids in order to store grain.”

Carson ignores experts and archaeologist on Egypt. The Yale University professor of Egyptology, John Darnell, told BBC:

“The major internal element of the pyramids is stone and brick – there wouldn’t be much space for grain, and it would be huge waste of power and engineering.”

So for his belief, Carson may have one more country, that also a friendly Middle Eastern nation of Egypt, on his hit list, to free Biblical Joseph’s granaries from Muslim control.

Up until this point in time, these three candidates are in top position in the polls and so tighten your seat belt and be prepared for the coming wars. Even if the poll changes, none of the Republican candidates are much better than these two nuts. On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders, though not a perfect candidate, is not that bad but doesn’t stand a chance against the crafty Clinton.
