On Rush Limbaugh Show Today Mark Steyn commented that While Daniels with either Bush or Carter would have been a big deal (he didn’t mention Romney as I did but Mitt was never in the oval office, nobody cares about the Trump/Stormy Daniels business and he’s right as I said before:

If 30 years ago, 20 years ago, 10 years ago, hell even 5 years ago somebody told you that thrice married and twice divorced billionaire Donald Trump had banged a porn star and had arranged a side agreement to prevent it from coming out would any of you have been surprised or interested? I mean there is a reason why InTouch magazine didn’t bother to run that story way back when.

I’d like to add one caveat.

If President Trump was carrying on with a porn star while in office, that would be a completely different story. As president he represents the nation and many of those who support this president, including me, would not stand for it.

It’s one thing to forgive the sins of his past when he was a friend of Bill Clinton and a Democrat, it’s quite another if said sins take place in the oval office as head of state.

If that was the case it would be time for President Pence.

Sgt. Schulz: [seeing the prisoner wearing Hitler mustaches and doing a Nazi salute] Bah! One Fuhrer is enough!

Today My son was playing the Youtube video on the tricks that makers of WW 2 video game RAID had to go though pass legal muster for sale in Germany because of their strict laws concerning Nazi references

It got me thinking, one might understand these laws in the context of the occupation of Germany post WW 2, but it’s now 2018 nearly 75 years after the fall of the 3rd Reich and it’s still going on. I don’t know what it tell you but here is what it tells me:

Germany’s Insistence on censoring WW 2 video Games removing any reference to Hitler or Nazi symbols mean that German lawmakers simply don’t trust their own people not to go all 4th Reich if given the slightest bit of encouragement.

Now I don’t claim to know more about the German cultural Psyche than actual Germans but it seems to me that if they think their people are just one video game image of Hitler away from having another go at conquering the Europe and then the world,  then the next time someone suggests moving US bases out of Germany and letting the Germans handle their own defense I think I’m going to politely disagree.

Finally might I suggest my book Hail Mary the Perfect Protestant (and Catholic) Prayer makes an excellent Gift.

…because they’ll have a bad reaction to this:

Sope Aluko, a Christian actress born in Nigeria who holds U.S. and British citizenship, said that the set of “Black Panther” (2018) felt “almost like church.”

“During breaks we shared our testimony of how we got to where [we] did and most of the people were testifying to God’s miracles, it was almost like church,” Aluko told Okay Africa’s Ezinne Mgbeahuruike.

Maybe Joy will suggest they all should be committed, actually she wouldn’t have the guts.  It’s one thing to call Mike Pence crazed for his Christian beliefs, it’s quite another to risk accusations of racism to suggest the same of an almost exclusively black movie cast.

I wonder if Gus Kenworthy will refuse to shake their believing Christian hands too?
