Thomas: “We do not know very much of the future
Except that from generation to generation
The same things happen again and again.
Men learn little from others’ experience.
The same time returns. Sever
The cord, shed the scale. Only
The fool, fixed in his folly, may think
He can turn the wheel on which he turns.” (Thomas)
Change that must have been destined since the beginning of eternity:

In the context of migration to Europe, some interesting issues:
Europe is doomed (an opinion written in 2011 – before the Europe migrants’ crisis)
“Now let us move
our attention onto the brakes
in your head…”
Let us move to America: Real Clear Politics
Fascinated, let’s literally emigrate – and if you were in Syria or Iraq recently you may soon be needing special clearance and even that will not necessarily take you off the suspect terrorist list. But if you can’t move your feet and flap your wings in that direction or you don’t want to, then let PJ O’Rourke, you know him, let him take a look for you, a look or peek-a-boo at the pre-election day circus that’s going on over there: According to the leanings of the young women folk and the latest opinion polls “Old hag Hillary” is not – as Donald J Trump would say, she is not doing too good, in fact is doing badly and that’s why she’s going to taste defeat and she’s going to bite the dust in New Hampshire.
Fighting for his life and his wife, fighting for a third term in the White House, Bill faithfully turning up and railing against Bernie Sanders supporters alleged sexism – all just in order to hustle a few more female votes on his wife’s behalf is not helping her cause very much, because everybody’s asking “Guess who’s talking? “– and the answer is “Slick willy!” and his “Now, I have to go back to work on my State of the Union speech.”
Moreover – the next financial meltdown could be worse than the last crash in which Brother Obama had to bail out more than just the big buck banks. Now just imagine : “Hillary Clinton Refuses To Promise Not To Cut Social Security Benefits”
# Here on this BBC website is a fascinating piece; I have never read anything like it before : “American political satirist, PJ O’Rourke casts a scathing eye over the candidates hoping to make it to the White House” #
The absolute latest – White Man Michael Bloomberg is mulling over whether or not to enter the race for the White House. Even though according to my trusted commentator this New York Tycoon has no name recognition nationwide, yet if he does decide to throw his hat in, I think that 1) it will serve to split the New York vote – on which Senator Hillary Clinton reposes so much hope (and Bernie too) – 2) it could throw much attention on Donald Trump’s much vaunted position as Mr. Successful Billionaire and by a side by side comparison with Donald Trump could answer this question highlighted here : “Trump not as successful as he would like to believe” because Mr. Trump is only worth $4 billion whereas Michael Bloomberg is worth at least $41 billion…3) If Michael Bloomberg decides to run and later on – if he does not win the nomination Donald J. Trump also decides to run as an Independent, that will surely shake up the US’s two party system for some time to come, but who will it hurt more, the Democrats or the Republicans and could either Bloomberg or Trump win as an independent?
As commander-in-chief, State Trooper Donald Trumper or Donald Trumpet will soon be firing shots from his underground bunker, but before and even after that we simply cannot afford to Miss PJ O’Rourke’s unique takes from the Campaign trail.
Dear everybody, no man is an island. Senor Trump is going to like this:
News Update: Netanyahu: security fence to be built on all of Israel’s borders to keep out the terrorists and illegal immigrants…
And one last word: I think that Donald Trump is a great guy, a great human being and a great American, moreover he always speaks highly of Sweden
