    • Hello Ark. Sadly yes. We are the Germany in the 1930’s and I am worried we will drag the world into a wide ranging war. We have an idiot demagogue in charge who worships strong dictators and thinks he deserves power. Reality and understanding mean nothing to him, he simply lives in a world of his own imagination. We have had for 20 years small war actions in the middle east. Now fractions of the administration want to change Iran for religious reasons ( make them Christians instead of Muslims ) and some want to get the oil for profitt. The current president wants to be known as a war hero leader when he did not even serve in the military and his dad paid to keep him out of the service. It really is a bad situation because what they are claiming makes no sense and the freighter captains disagree with the US, as do other nations. Hugs

    • Hello MDavis. I love this! I doubt many remember that he fought against the US rage waring into Iraq. They don’t know how he was responsible for the group overseeing the conditions that Bush claimed were violated. I wish our population would put more stock in well reasoned science. Hugs

        • Hello MDavis. If we do not remember the past, are we in danger of doing the same illegal actions? We seriously need a better education system to teach our children history and civics. Hugs

          • Also rhetoric, logic, debate – all good tools to help spot logical fallacies, arguing in bad faith, propaganda. Also critical thinking and the scientific theory.
