Yeah, like "fuck off"

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Ya, I admit it, I usually reserve the phrase "you're a worthless turd" for when I look at myself in the bathroom mirror, first thing in the morning.

You are the death of this man's hope, you worthless turd.

Well, after that cheerful and upbeat note, let me get another drink.

When I lived in Iran, we had martial law, a 10 pm curfew where soldiers shot at anything that moved, a complete blackout (interesting to see City of then 6 Mio without a single light), the occasional Iraqi plane dropping a few bombs, triple A fire w. tracers to celebrate the New Year, snipers, opposing groups shooting at each other, food, heating oil and other essentials only available on the black market, and more. Whenever I would say; "this is so bad, it can't get any worse" it always got worse.
The lesson to me was, while it could sometimes be better, it can always be worse.

Some people see the donut, others just the hole. Cheerio
