Trump and the second coming

Popularity 5Viewed 3802 times 2016-11-10 10:30 |System category:Life| Trump, Future, disasters


I have an instinctive feeing deep down that some very bad times lie ahead. I hope I am just being foolish.

The Middle East, ISIL, Putin, DPRK stupidity, Brexit.... and now Trump.

I keep thinking of the first stanza of a poem by W.B.Yeats; "The second coming."

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed,
and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Ah...... time for coffee and cake.

This is one of THE MOST RIDICULOUS, things I have ever heard in my life! I mean, what does Donald Trump has to do with the Second Coming of Jesus? Donald Trump is A CLOWN!

I mean, he is super arrogant. He bad mouths EVERYONE who does not kiss his a**! He is extremely prejudice towards ALL the minorities! He thinks he is God's greatest gift to this country!

He doesn't even have any political experience, to begin with! He is not even well liked by the public because of his arrogance, and rude, mean, and insensitive comments about other people and other countries around the world!

I fear that you have not understood the poem. The second coming is not the coming of Jesus.... quite the opposite. It is the return of evil or Satan. My meaning was not directed only at USA but world trends.    Please re-read and study the poem.

So I guess it won't change anything ..

If the best lack conviction then are they really the best?

yes, I agree that we are coming up on the End Times. I am very excited about it. I feel very lucky to be alive right at the time when the world is about to end.

Trumps Second Coming is the re-election bid in 2020

On The Washington Post, Trump shared a bit of news about a possible bid for re-election:
He already has even decided on his new slogan for 2020.

“Are you ready?” he said. “ ‘Keep America Great!,’ exclamation point.”

“Get me my lawyer!” the president shouted.

Two minutes later, one arrived

    Blonde Amber: "It could be something to do with 'face' or the fact that allowing foreigners in requires a licence that they can not afford."

    But you said "Thankfully not arrested"?  Why should a foreigner be arrested if the hotel is not great or doesn't have the special license? And the original blogger said "I could have been arrested at any time."  For visiting waterfalls and caves?  Doesn't China want to encourage its tourism industry?

    Gayle: What is the reason that some hotels and motels would say "NOT FOR FOREIGNERS"?  I can understand if a place has military activities going on ...
    5 star hotels in China are usually of about (at best) 4 star standard or less in Europe.

    my research has found that the hotels in China that refuse foreigners are usually of 3 star (local) standard or lower.
    It could be something to do with 'face' or the fact that allowing foreigners in requires a licence that they can not afford.
