I also predicted Trump in a landslide over the Hildabeast because, for one thing, the Hildabeast was, and is, also a catastrophe. And also because Trump said the right things that people needed to hear, especially in ignored and impoverished Flyover Land (thank you all the liars and puppets in goverment and their masters, the Cosmodemonic Transnational Megacorporations. Or as Thomas Jefferson wrote, "The selfish spirit of commerce knows no country, and it feels no passion or principle but that of gain.").
I also predicted the wars of the vile, cowardly, corrupt, never-worked-a-day-in-his-life Dubya Shrub would be a catastrophe. For one thing, everyone in his administration was a catastrophe, including Dubya.
For another thing, there is an old but true saying: "You can conquer a country on horseback but you have to dismount to rule." I knew Iraq would never stand a snowball's chance in hell against the U.S. military but the U.S. would never rule or rebuild Iraq.
I remember thinking we were attacked by Saudi Arabia (almost all the hijackers were from there) so the U.S. attacked Afghanistan and Iraq? WTF? If that many hijackers were from North Korea or Cuba, would we not realize we were attacked by those two countries?
I have mentioned before you can just about live your life by clichés (they wouldn't be clichés unless there was much truth in them). Here is another cliché: "No sword cuts so brutally as when a peasant becomes a lord." (This is one of the reasons democracy always falls, because peasants are always elected).
I have memorized a bunch of Aesop's Fables. Not so much the fables but the morals to them, such as "Equals make the best friends."
I have found these clichés have never failed me. They are, after all, based on thousands, of years of experience.
The dumb don't even learn from their own experience. The average learn only from their own. The smart learn from other people's experience.
Here are some morals to some Aesop's fables: "The tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny" and "The greedy have no gratitude." Just look at Hillary Clinton.
