He is such a moron that needs to be checked. Doesn't he have any advisors that can corral his mouth? I love that someone told him the difference between global warming and climate change. Bonehead.

Have you seen the recent Tweets by Donald Trump? He actually called for global warming to ease the cold temps in the east. Is there no limit to his mouth? I just can't believe he did it again!

When he tweeted about the coldest New Year's as a sign there's no such thing as Global Warming, there was a great response from a scientist on Facebook. This person basically described the difference between weather and climate. We're seeing freezing temperatures like we haven't in years, but that doesn't mean the overall climate has changed. Yeesh.

Back in the history of economics wars created jobs and employment but our focus was not on the consumer so people wanted for many things (or lots of junk).

Thanks for the explanation. Mom always told me about the shortages during the war and how hard times were but I had never heard guns or butter. I can't imagine living through anything like that. We are so blessed.

My mother used to talk about the shortages during the war. Women working in factories to keep up with the demand on guns and bullets. Hose were hard to get, but if you had a good friend on base, they could get them. If you look at our history, wars have gotten us out of some really bad economic times. Do you think it will happen again?

I certainly hope not, but its hard to say for sure.

It seems as though things are different now. Wars benefit the large contractors who rebuild the foreign infrastructures destroyed. While here in America, life goes on without a glitch.

No more guns OR butter, but rather guns AND butter.

That's something my Grandmother has commented on many times over the years. She remembers the scarcity in WWII and how everyone had to work together for the troops and the cause. She was especially pissed when Bush told everyone to keep shopping.

I hate to say it but it's easy to forget that there's always a war somewhere. It's been part of our lives for so long.

Very interesting quote Wanderer, I had never heard that before.

"Guns or Butter?" I've never heard that Wanderer. Please tell me what it means. I remember mom telling me about all the things that were scarce during WWII but this saying never came up in the conversations.

There's too much money to be made during war. That's why we support and arm so many conflicting groups. We'll never have real peace. Greed is what rules the world.

The good news is that we are finally trying to start a diplomatic resolution to the hostilities with North Korea! I can't believe DT is even allowing it. Thank God for more sain minds at play here. Congratulations on whoever got this plan into action. You probably saved us WWIII.
