When I visited an uncle in Kansas on his farm, fresh water was somewhat scarce and we had to use the outhouse for doing #2 (we could pee in the toilet all day but it was only flushed just before bed). There was a long stick in the outhouse. I asked what it was for and was told it was to check for snakes in the crapper. Lordy, I HATED using that outhouse.
While I have 'removed' IE on my computer and hacked the registry to make Edge not load at start up, I still find that both of these still collect (generate?) bits of info that needs to be cleaned. I never use either. The best thing to do for both of them would be to remove them from Windows completely with the option of installing Edge if you are feeling particularly stupid that day.
If you are outsourcing the training of your troops in the military, you've completely lost sight of how the military is supposed to work. Also, you need a clean slate at the top staffed with actual competent people. Of course England has long done this, but at least the Hessians were somewhat competent.
Reminds me of a prank a friend played in college around 1972 or so. He arraigned for a series of postcards to be sent to one particular girl that all said, "Wait for me. I'm coming. Godot." He managed to have them sent from around the world with the postmarks being ever closer to home causing the girl to begin to panic. She obviously did not get the Godot part. He would have, of course, missed her. But this lasted an entire semester.
"Thus in the US if you have enough money you can do what you like"
Actually, in the US at least, you don't even have to HAVE the money as long as you can convince the right people that perhaps you DO have the money [see: D. Trump]. I have long considered 'money' to be a consensual hallucination that will never go away.
"Of course he has been a good president based on his achievements in office and achieved what Obama and the democrats considered magical."
If you consider the ongoing and persistent destruction, piece by piece, of the US and the lining of his own pockets with taxpayer money (I mean, really: $3 for his own glass of water at Mar-a-Lago?) to be good things, well then, he's been just fantastic.
