addresses the pwned UN Assembly today 10:20 EST.
I will listen to VOA/NPR's post-event interpretation until I pass out or find anything else to do, which ever comes first to mind.

A lot of laughs in Trump's hour-long panegyric, especially condemnation of the "success" of socialist and communist proven failures: THAT stumped the audience for a minute. Then polite applauders rallied for five seconds.

I shut off VOA/NPR interpreters after ten minutes. That is once reporters had established further "analysis" (by expert panelists forthcoming) would be limited to How Trump Disappointed His Base.

Even his theology is all wrong. The American Conservative
The statement itself is also rather odd in that it talks about the many being righteous, when religious texts normally present the righteous as being the relatively few and embattled against the wicked multitude. If the "wicked" are so few, they must be badly outnumbered and don't pose as much of a threat as Trump claims elsewhere.

I'm sure there is a pun in there somewhere, but my theology isn't quite up to it...

Yesterday USA Today predicted Trump's United Nations speech to call for cooperation on North Korea
although White House has not yet published prepared remarks today.

Guess you had to be there < wipes tears > unlike C-SPAN.

hmm, 'Bezos' Daily call to action "In U.N. speech, Trump threatens to `totally destroy North Korea' and calls Kim Jong Un the `Rocket Man'" looks suspiciously like 'liberal' lady call to action "Trump Threatens to `Totally Destroy' North Korea".

Am I about to miss an investment opportunity again?!

Psst, wanna make a killing in deathware?

Some have retired on just crowd control equpiment dividends; not quite as profitable, but nicer to talk about at the family dinners.

Since 9/11 sales have been stellar. Ask Rudy.

And of course Tamilflu shares put many in clover. As soon as Rumsfeld was heard to be on the board of directors you had to know that was a no-brainer.

re: "real men"

hmm, yes, well, I've had a "Deep Space 9" retrospective or my mind for the past few weeks. Consequently, I'm uncertain if "real ferangi" is the truly the more fitting term.
