Re: Nazi invasion...
I was under the impression Moscow had already agreed to security guarantee's when Ukraine gave up its' nukes. But Russian promises have mostly been worthless in my lifetime.

Dr Seuss Enterprises canceled those books and actually planned it last year, the "loony commie lefties" had nothing to do with it. People and times evolve, and there is no shame in rethinking things. Look how long it took for the Washington Football Team to finally agree to change it's patently racist name.
This is a Texas thing, they wanted to be independent with all the good but none of bad that goes with it. You really have to get into the Texas mindset to understand it. And being rabid republicans, I'm sure they will just pull themselves up by their bootstraps and somehow blame those damn libruls
Parler actively kicked anything to the left of Attila the hun. Hell, one of their favorite politicians claimed to be more conservative than Atilla.
To continue your analogy, say Mickey Mantle takes a bat to Carl Yastrzemski in the field of play. Now if your business model still sells baseball cards with Mickey's face on them you will lose the Red Sox customers and the fair minded Yankees customers who thought this was wrong.
And rightfully be condemned by Cubs fans too.
While loud, the basket of deplorables as they were once called, less than half of a half. And even then, not all of these voters are going to be onboard with overthrowing the government by violent means. They might not get to fly on airplanes as witnessed by the ones crying about not being allowed on flights home.
In the US these maskholes are a pandemic upon themselves. One of the primary reasons we can't get things under control.
Of course things do start @ the top and we have had no leadership there, with any luck there will be more people interested in protecting others while the vaccine is deployed and the US can get across the finish line.
So much this, you want to have your work done overseas, at least know what you want. I've worked in the US for bosses who had no idea what they wanted and then complained about the end results, even when you gave then what they had said they wanted. You want the big bux making decisions, then make the instructions concise and to the point. I've seen it happen far too many times that leaving these grey areas open has been just a way to blame someone else for manglements failings.
There might be some credence to the rumor that one of the reasons he's in the forefront of these suits is that he is shopping for a pardon. He faces several federal charges as he is just another corrupt politician in the long line of corrupt politicians from Texas.
But yes, he is not much more than a trump peenremora.
The boom was financed by irresponsible deficit spending and equally irresponsible tax cuts. Now that trump has completely blown the response to Covid-19 the magnitude of his idiocy is being shown. And while it may be fine for you to sacrifice yourself on the altar of the stock markets, some people wouldn't mind living long enough to see their grand kids graduate.
If he had actually made his "premium" clothing anywhere besides China I could see his point. The vast majority of his and his daughters clothing lines are made there though. We won't even go into the fact a lot of her stuff has been found to be knockoffs as well.
He is just another do as I say, not as I do clown.
And during the last major election, the people who said we aren't building a monument to the Maginot Line got the most votes and said no wall. It is the will of the people who voted their representatives into office.
As far as this being Trump's shutdown, he went on national TV and made it a point to say he would be proud to wear the mantle and claim it as his. Are you trying to take away one of his few accomplishments?
The space race in the 60's was a case of the project management triangle being skewed towards we will get to the moon first, damn the costs.
If you really think that NASA is being mismanaged, how much do you think it would have cost the US to have Haliburton or Boeing to put the rovers on Mars or send pictures back from the Kuiper Belt?
NASA's FY 2017 budget of $19.5 billion (in nominal dollars) represented 0.47% of the $3.98 trillion United States federal budget during that year.
NASA was allocated $601.31 billion (in nominal dollars) overall from 1958 to 2018.
As part of the system of checks and balances, one of the houses of a co equal branch of the government (in this case the one that controls the purse) is now controlled by people who said they were not willing to build a wall. So it should not be built, on the premise that the majority of people have spoken and said no.
While it might take time and money to spin up new or find replacement facilities China is just as much at the mercy of their biggest consumer if they wish to keep their growing middle class happy. As far as closing any of the Foxconn facilities, they make stuff for all the major IT companies so that is a no go also.
This saber rattling between the two is amusing to watch if it wasn't so dangerous to the worlds stability.
