Without nukes we could never have prevented the Soviet Union from taking over Europe. Their huge advantage in tanks was one of the most important reasons for nuclear weapons escalation during the cold war.

They didn't have a huge advantage in tanks in 1945
The US/UK had every advantage in combination - especially in the air - except for sheer manpower and landmass
But nuclear weapons certainly did originally play excellently into the US playbook until the advent of icbms

WWII may have devastated the armies of Europe, but it honed the Red Army into a formidable war machine. At the same time, half of the US's logistical network was sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic due to the Second Happy Time.

You gotta remember that most of the USSR's failures in battle during the early parts of WWII were caused by Stalin's purges of the military, which meant that there was a severe lack of skilled officers to lead troops into battle. It also meant the troops were largely demoralized conscripts.

There is a reason that every single first strike scenario against the USSR relied on massive nuclear bombardment, and that reason is because nobody could field a conventional army in Europe that could match the Red Army.

There is also a reason that Zhukov was sent to some podunk post in the middle of nowhere after WWII, and that's because Stalin feared him.

People that are unconcerned with their military standing rarely come up with things like Operation Dropshot, Operation Unthinkable, or publicize Plan Totality as a bluff-based deterrent.

Recently I got to talk to someone at the RNC and there's a special election in our area and I told him I voted for the candidate he was calling about and I was able to establish a human connection with this person. During this Exchange I outlined that over 50% of all PTSD patients can only be treated with anxiety medication and due to the National opioid crisis being a federal executive order it's made it so I was inactive student in college before with aspirations of getting a job and now I am barely making it staying at home because the doctors can't give the dose they recommend for me. Also my father served in the Vietnam era on the cold war front and was LAPD for years after that sustaining permanent debilitating spine injuries and they made him choose between his pain meds and his anxiety meds.

Because he is bed-bound and I only get to be with him four days a week his anxiety, depression and PTSD attacks he had to choose the anxiety medication. Ever since every day he is an agonizing pain and it absolutely kills me to see him that way because of our own government. After talking to them for a while he said he had a specific way that he could get the message to the RNC because I'm technically a registered Republican and that's absolutely going to change if doctors don't get the right to treat patients Case by case and use their medical knowledge that the government does not have.  Also while I had him on the phone I emphasized that while leaving cannabis legislation up to the states is good the way it falls through the cracks is local governments are then able to override the vote of the state especially because it's the schedule one.

Who knows if they give a shit I doubt it but at least I said my piece.

That being said that's also not the only direct consequence that's happened in my life because of this administration's actions. And if you go back in some of these posts I was praising Trump for doing things like freeing up five hundred billion dollars in a real pandemic,(not the horseshit opiate one), invoking the defense production Act and after he got fooled he required them to do it and the most important in best decision Trump maybe he's ever made is having Anthony falchi as are leading expert leaving us through this and trying to tell people in layman's terms what we need to do he's received bipartisan support because he knows what needs to be done so through all of this I have some sense of hope that the dumb shit that Trump says isn't what he ultimately does.

But those small business loans dried up because they have not to big business, when he introduced the plan Enphase has to get back to normal I pretty much supported all that. Then he dangerously undercut his own efforts by encouraging protesters with no masks that weren't social distancing meaning of the word spreading more disinformation that coronavirus is a lie and these people only are saying what they're saying because they're not seeing the immense death toll that could be even though we have New York and Italy does the model and now many states.

Whenever someone asks a question nowadays that doesn't end in some ass kissing, the response is" your ratings are low, you're pathetic oh, what a horrible question, you're just being nasty, fake news, terrible reporters. Imagine if Obama would have done that Republicans would have been calling for an immediate impeachment over mental sanity. The reason being is the leader of the free world is supposed to be able to have a composure that sets an example for all Americans in public discourse. When you are the president of the United States of America you need to be able to keep your calm in eloquently answer even the hardest and sometimes very critical questions. Recently he said that "he doesn't mind criticism but they shouldn't be able to criticize him if there are wrong" That's the exact definition of criticism is they say you're wrong when you think you're right. Do you really want the government deciding who's wrong and who's right when it comes to the debate over what should we should do with our country? Do you want a free press which is a cornerstone of freedom or do you want a president that can pick and choose which questions he answers if he doesn't like the question?

Trump is to Twitter as Roosevelt was to Fireside chats.....Dump does utilize current tech (everyone talking about his recent troll); more than Obummer's Blackberry jism. Hopefully, any parallel ends there as Roosevelt's chat premiered during Great Depression.

Help us all.  :finger: :voodoo:

Theoretically, that's what local representatives are supposed to do.

I had some bullshit a while back when I was in HS, where I moved states while I had a learner's permit, which led to complications getting a DL when I moved states, and then I became a US citizen halfway through so my documentation was suddenly invalid (since I was applying with a passport...I-5? I-501? something like that) and had to apply with a green card/citizenship.

Took 12 separate trips to the DMV, then I called my local congressman, and on my 13th trip to the DMV I got my DL. No paperwork that time. Just a signed letter from my congressman.

Sadly, trump has done none of that. He did not free up any money for real pandemics (he actually cut funding). He did not actually use the DPA, he only invoked it as a threat.

Not firing Fauci is the only good thing dumpty has done thus far, and that's not an action. That's a lack of action. A literal brick on a chair would have done that same.

Well, he's a whole lot more coherent than the current POTUS, so there's that. He can speak in complete sentences and his grammar is at least at a ninth grade level.
