Two separate political worlds
American politics these days, and perhaps European as well, seems to be divided into two entirely separated spheres that have little or no communication between them. What I see written here belongs to some other dimension entirely than the one I live in. I can certainly see the effect of this dimension in the disruptive work of the enemies of Trump as they labor to interfere with everything he tries to do, unfortunately succeeding in many cases, but in my dimension his popularity remains high and his successes are overall adding up.

Concerning the Wall, since for some strange reason this is opposed by a lot of Democrats and Republicans both, there has been a proposal to fund it by Trump supporters themselves. Heard this on a conservative radio talk show recently.

Re: Two separate political worlds
Well, Paul, since you seem to be unaware of it, I must inform you that your post is just another from the Other Dimension than the one I hear about every day from conservative sources.

Re: Two separate political worlds
What do you think of the El Chapo Act?

What I'd like to know is, where is that money right now? Does the U.S. government have it? Does Mexico have it? Is it spent already? If so, what will it be spent on? I'd expect these answers to be on the news, prominently. But with today's news, fat chance.

Sounds good on paper, though I can't really read through that site right now. Good questions.

Every day I wish I was dead, for at least part of the day after reading the news -- or a political thread at EvC. I usually find some reason to prefer to stay alive but it's touch and go these days. And I worry about the deluded people too. If this isn't yet the official End of Days, how far off can it be?

Sorry, I didn't mean to attract all that attention. Wishing I was dead won't kill me. Unfortunately. Yes I'm very depressed, to my mind realistically. I don't want to drug it away. It is what it is. I hate the opinions here. You shouldn't feel sympathetic for me.

If being here really makes you feel like killing yourself,

I don't "feel like killing myself," Suicide is not an option. Wishing I was dead is a wish. A fantasy about someone knocking at the door and then shooting me dead when I open it. Sometimes it's a prayer that God hasn't answered. I consider this frame of mind to be a sin too, so maybe if I just keep praying He'll take it away.

I really didn't expect all this reaction. I thought I was saying essentially the same thing Marc said about being glad he isn't younger. But I see how it's different now.

wouldn't some time away be worth trying?

I've taken time off from EvC, it makes no difference. I would really have to be dead not to have to deal with these things. And of course it's other things as well anyway.

But thanks for everybody's concern.
