TRUMP Flags but no conflict of interest? ~~dru~~

The Return of the Modern Philosopher

Trump gives Alaska back to Russia, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Russia, Alaska, politics, Trump's inauguration, satire, humor, Modern PhilosopherPresident Elect Donald Trump’s inauguration is not until Friday, Modern Philosophers, but he is already sending thank you gifts to those who helped him win the election.

And the billionaire, who really knows how to spend, is not skimping on the presents.

Today, Trump surprised one of his most ardent supporters, Russian President Vladimir Putin, with the gift of Alaska.

“Putin gets a bad rap because the Democrats wanted us to see him as the enemy,” Trump explained as he signed away the forty-ninth state in yet another horrible real estate deal.  “I know better.  The man is a friend, an ally, and a lover of all things American.”

Is that why you thought you should give him his own chunk of America?

“Alaska used to be part of Russia, so we’re merely giving a very cold, very far away place back to its rightful owner,” Trump continued.  “I’m hoping that…

The Return of the Modern Philosopher

Donald Trump, Trump's inauguration, The Robot Apocalypse, The Machines, technology, paranoia, doomsday, hacking the election, humor, Modern PhilosopherOn the eve of Donald Trump’s inauguration, I realize that I have totally neglected one major story because we’ve all been so distracted by the President Elect’s rise to power…

The Robot Apocalypse!

We’ve been so caught up in the election and the coming Trumpocalypse, that we’ve paid absolutely no mind to Robot High Command’s plot to enslave the human race and take over the world.

Was it a coincidence that Trump came along when he did, or was he a part of The Machine’s devious plan all along?

Let’s look at the facts:

Donald Trump “won” the election, and is about to become the President of the United States.  Reports suggest that the election results might have been “influenced” by hackers.  Intelligence agencies believe the Russians were behind this hack.  The Russians deny any involvement, Trump doesn’t trust the intelligence agencies, and many people believe the world will end…

And on that day of Friday, January 20th, 2017, Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Fruitless the search of my soul for rays of hope. Pitiless the news. Unrelenting the trolls. And all of my friends were busy lying on their carpet face down in utter resignation. So, I scoured the internet for a ray of light. Surely somewhere there was hope.

In Middle Earth, the mood was grim.

what-the-fuck-gandalf Gandalf had been lost in Moria since the before the election, so Pippin told him.

gandalf-cant-even Now he can’t even get off this rock.

bilbo-nope Bilbo finally broke open the Old Winyard laid down by his father.

arwen-fuck Arwen stopped trying to use her millennia of Elven wisdom in internet exchanges and now simply  intones profanity


Aragorn just beheaded Kellyanne Conway.

In the Zombie Apocalypse, the Walking Dead group shared their reactions to the Trumpocalypse as well.

Danse Macre,

Zig, zig, zig, Death in cadence,
Striking a tomb with his heel,
Death at midnight plays a dance-tune,
Zig, zig, zag, on his violin.

The winter wind blows, and the night is dark;
Moans are heard in the linden trees.
White skeletons pass through the gloom,
Running and leaping in their shrouds.

Zig, zig, zig, each one is frisking,
You can hear the cracking of the bones of the dancers.
A lustful couple sits on the moss
So as to taste long lost delights.

Zig zig, zig, Death continues
The unending scraping on his instrument.
A veil has fallen! The dancer is naked.
Her partner grasps her amorously.

The lady, it’s said…

Some of the many humorous quotes (mis)attributed to Yogi Berra are trenchant expressions of genuine wisdom, akin to Zen koans.  (In his Washington Post obituary, the subtitle “American philosopher” is well-chosen.)  One of his gems is so widely applicable and important that it deserves a special name.  It is also so widely quoted that 2 versions are common, as indicated by [|] below:

Yogi Berra’s Law
[The game|It] ain’t over til it’s over.

Yes, the original context was baseball.  With 2 outs in the bottom of the 9-th inning, the home team may be trailing.  Yogi rightly admonishes both the home team (to resist despair) and the…
