I can't speak for the World, nor do I care to, but my immediate area is as friendly towards the United States as it was under the previous administration.I know what I read from other areas of the world about how the chump affects them. Maybe there's hyperbole there?QuoteThe coronavirus response would have been many weeks sooner.I doubt it. Although, if Mrs. Clinton's leadership were more authoritarian in nature, it may have been. Among the more densely populated "civilized" countries, there is a certain correlation between the state's nannying and their respective infection plots. The freer among them tend to be on a linear incline, while the infection rates in various nanny-states have largely stagnated or declined.Note that when I talk about "nannying" here, it's not only a matter of top-down government control, "there ought to be a law" style, but just as much a matter of general public attitudes (Whether the population at large also thinks that there ought to be a law, or if they lean towards "keep your government hands out of my cookie jar") EDIT: Upon re-reading, I see that I was imprecise here; the wording I was looking for was, "the strength of 'government is a hindrnace/necessary evil' sentiment among the population." I did not mean "the majority," although I worded it thusly.QuoteThere would have been women hanged in effigy, somewhere.I'm no connoisseur of effigies, nor do I think such things are something an president should be involved in at all, but why is it important, exactly, that they be women? In matters of who gets a statue, ought not their personal achievements far out-weigh their sex glands?I should have been more specific- I meant Hilary would have been hanged in effigy. When Obama was elected, he was hanged and burned in effigy.QuoteWe'd have at least one less conservative judge on the bench of the SCOTUS.Yep. (No, really. Simply, yep.)QuoteThere would still be a number of the chump's associates in prison, under indictment, etc.Exactly who and for what? (I'm not saying that would not happen, but when the cunt-pickeld fuck* did regular people on The Left™ stop adhering to the principles of innocence until guilt is proven beyond reasonable doubt? On a related note, "listen and believe" is crap. People lie.)I guess the ones involved with the Russian offers of help would be. Hard to say, since Hilary isn't in office.*I do apologize for the level of vulgarity, but that was one of the main drives for my no-longer losely self-identifying with the Left. The issue of presumption of innocence is something I will not easily forsake.
