The fifth horseman

A FIFTH HORSEMAN of the Apocalypse now rides through Western Europe, the United States and Canada, the historically white man’s civilized world of liberal democracy.

And freedom.

It is the Horseman of Lunacy, a new boy on the block.

And the other four horsemen are just behind him.

  1. I agree with you. But it seems that horse is really running wild in the U.S. right now. Next romp will be when The Donald names Palin as his VP candidate to counter Carly and to ease his anti-women image. Better get used to Hillary. But don’t worry. I heard she will name Bill as her VP for balance.

    1. Carlos: The Fifth Horseman is definitely running wild in the U.S. right now. Not quite as much as in Europe but a close second.

      I’d rather see a President Palin instead of Trump. I had become a mild fan of Palin in recent years. Alas, she disappointed me grievously with the Trump endorsement. What are these people thinking?

      Would be a hoot if Hillary put Bill on as VP. Likely wouldn’t hurt her a bit.

      1. But if she died in office, he wouldn’t be able to assume the duty of president due to term limitations. So I rather doubt he could be vice president.

  2. OK, the statement about being a mild fan of Palin convinced me of something I have suspected for quite some time. You are a wizard. You are the most convincing troll I have ever encountered on the web. Congratulations. You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool Clete.

    1. Clete: Now why would I want to fool you or anyone else? Here’s my history with Palin. When she was chosen to be the VP on McCain’s ticket, I am embarrassed to say that I swallowed sinker, line and hook the flaming left-wing media’s picture of her as a Moose-hunting dunce. But as time passed and I read calmer items about her, and I saw her more and more, I gradually changed my mind. She’s a very bright, gutsy gal. I had become a reasonably ardent admirer until — insert drum roll — she endorsed Trump! My heart was broken.

  3. Come now, Felipe. She is a complete moron. Always has been, always will be. I’m gonna stick with you being a troll. No one as articulate as you could truly believe she is anything but a total nincompoop and a complete loser.

    1. Clete: There was a time around the 2008 election and shortly thereafter that I would have agreed with you. However, I got educated. Turns out that she was a far-better-than-average governor of Alaska, responsible for a number of sharp and needed reforms. Don’t ask for details. It’s been years, and I’ve forgotten. What remains with me today is that I was not expecting the quite positive and numerous things I learned about her governorship. So my opinion of her flipped. Your opinion of her is straight out of the left-wingers’ instruction manual where you folks get your marching orders. This is quite unfortunate.

      Plus, she’s good-looking.

      1. There you go again with your absurd assumptions. You have no idea what my sources are. But there are a ton of videos on the web, some from the left, others from the right and still others from the middle which show her for exactly what she is, an idiot. She might try spending more time with her dysfunctional family. She sure did a top notch job raising those kids now, didn’t she? Why would anyone trust her running the country?

        1. Clete: Of course I know what your news sources are. Not specifically, of course, but I know how they lean. People, including myself, rarely read the competition. That does not lead to an ideal world, but it’s human nature. You don’t read Breitbart or the Washington Times, and I don’t read the New York Times or Huffpost.

  4. Sheer lunacy what is going on in Europe. Yeah, we are on our way as well. I really do hope Trump takes the ticket, amigo, and can somehow pull off the election. At least this country will be more interesting as we fade off into the historical Dustin. Times They Are A-Changin’ and it is very unlikely this Titanic country can be turned back around. The iceberg is upon us, and there’s no turning back.

    1. Mark: Lunacy only barely describes what’s going on in Europe. Ignorance plays a major role too. As for Trump, you get the same thing but more firmly conservative with Cruz, and you get it without the bombast, the silliness, the crudity. Plus Cruz would defeat Hillary handily. He is very sharp. Wake up, man!

      1. I’m sorry, amigo, but that ship has already left the port. The people have spoken and Cruz is not the man. Kasich is an utter fool, and the last man standing is the bombastic egocentric billionaire, Donald The bouffant Trump. I am okay with that as he is slowly turning his a behavior into something more acceptably presidential. I know a lot of people don’t appreciate that, but that’s okay with me. He really does speak for the working class and those of us who have not had a voice in any party for decades. Let’s see what he can do.He cannot be any worse than the Hildabeest. God forbid this nomination should go to a brokered convention. All hell will break loose and that will be the literal end of the Republican party as we know it. Time for The Establishment to get their heads out of their asses on this one.

        1. Mark: The majority of brokered GOP conventions have led to a candidate who was not the frontrunner going in. Cruz still has a shot, but it’s a long one. I think his naming Carly as his running mate was a sharp move. Trump has serious problems with women, and rightly so.

          Long past time for Kasich to pack up and go home. I used to kinda like the guy, but not anymore.

          As for Trump being better than Hillary, I’m not so sure. I think they both would be bad news but in entirely different directions.

          1. Too late: Cruz is out. Kind of a pity, that. I was sort of hoping for a re-run of the whole “birther” debate, but with the shoe on the other foot.

  5. Sadly, it is the voters that put these nitwits in office. It is about time that the people of Europe decide that Europe is for Europeans. Likewise, we will soon see an “America First” movement in the U.S.

    It is sad that the Middle East is torn by war and hatred, but they need to solve their problems there, not take them to other nations.
    The Middle East is being depopulated and those leaving will never be absorbed into the host countries. The situation will fester until there is a real problem. And that will not be good for anyone.

  6. Now that Cruz has bowed out, we are one step closer to a “President Trump.” Those of us with Mexican ties need to do some thinking about whether we might become victims of some kind of official blowback to a Trump presidency.

    In truth, Mexico needs the USA more than the USA needs Mexico, and I think the current Mexican leadership is well aware of this, even if they don’t like it. But they still may pull some BS like increasing visa hassles or whatever.

    If nothing else, it’s worth thinking about.

    1. Kim: Being a paisano, I don’t have to worry about any official blowback. Unofficial, however, could be a problem. Time will tell.

      But, yeah, we might decide to toss all you Gringos back over the border. So there!

      1. While that latter sentence might represent a popular opinion (though I somewhat doubt it; Mexicans seem to love Americans but not like their country), it would be unwise policy and the leadership likely knows it. But maybe something like London’s new tax on foreign-held real estate? Higher Fideicomiso fees? Higher visa fees? Higher fees to drive a Gringo car in Mexico? Higher tolls for foreign-plated cars? There’s lots that could be done to hassle gringos without killing the golden goose, at least not in one fell swoop.
