My thoughts

I am not a Trump lover, I voted for him as the lesser of the evils. But many times the media is less than totally truthful about the facts. Twentythree of the twentyeight NATO countries are not fulfilling their obligation to spend 2% of their GNP on defense. The US has exceeded our spending commitment. On the paris climate treaty a couple interesting facts. The draft agreement sets a goal for developed countries to dole out at least $100 billion per year by 2020 to aid in the transition. China has agreed to not reduce it's immissions until 2030. India has a similar agreement. Maybe we need an arrogant blowhard to look out for our interests as our national debt has doubled in the previous eight years.

The capacity to cherry pick arguments and justify one's decision will continue throughout this whole horrible ordeal and beyond.

 

The US committed $9.07 per capita to the agreement for its entirety.

 

The US weapons industry is very happy with the NATO spending arrangement because they dominate that market. As Europe pulls away from the US- in horror- they probably are going to spend more on defense and it is going to be a boon to their armaments industries.

 

But when you can sell $100B to Saudi Arabia for the Yemeni genocide, who cares?

Well, some gay porn aficionados want a rude guy in a ascot and foreign accent to tell this country what to do...we won the damned Revolutionary War, what we have to do it all over again???  

 

Frau Eva Merkel says Germany can`t count on Britain or the US...well good, about time!  We have a $20 Truillion national debt partially from policing the world NATO either steps up or the hell with em.  Had to laugh at Charlie Rose saying "Well Obama wanted other countries to pay more too...Obama wanted countries to pay more too!!!"   Johnny come lately.

 

NPR eggheads were guffawing that "Pulling out of Paris won`t save the coal industry...natural gas is cheaper"   well, good, then natural gas will win the day, but we don`t need the rude guy with an ascot putting his damned thumb on the scale.

Re: My thoughts

Why? Because I don't agree with you? I thought this was an open forum and this country a democracy. Or am I missing something amongst the regular posters here?
