A list of things that will never likely happen in any of our lifetimes
1. The GOP will turn away from supporting tobacco

2. Corporations and wealthy individuals will pay their fair share of taxes

3. The USA will not be involved in someone else's mindless no-win war in remote reaches of wretched nations

4. Republicans will return to embracing science

5. Congress will begin acting in the nation's best interests

Sadly yes. I'm not sure humans are intrinsically capable of most of those things as a whole.

I agree with all but #8. China will easily surpass the US in a few decades and become the #1 superpower.

Reads like a wish list for our grandchildren's futures, though.

Keep on keepin' on, everyone!

Trump telling the truth
Republicans embracing science instead of the bible
No mass shootings in a years time frame
Republicans working for the people instead of the wealthy
Term limits for congress
Term limits for the SCOTUS

1. That I will like Trump.


I have NEVER liked being lied to and talked to like I am a fool.


2. That Trump will NOT stop saying he is a genius.


A real genius will never mention he is such.


3. Trump gets a loan in New York City.

Maybe, but I doubt it. Take a good long look at their history; china has a tendency to implode fairly regularly.

My prediction (for what it's worth), is that they will have to cope with massive internal unrest within a decade.
