An Imaginary Conversation between Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln on Zombies or the Walking Dead of 2016
Washington: good morning Thomas, good morning Abraham. I surmise that you too could not sleep well in your grave last night and so you are up and about this bustling modern city bearing my name. It’s a good thing we are invisible. Could you imagine the confusion that would ensue, were we actually visible to the mindless crowd surrounding us?
The world’s longest continuous conflict, between the Government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (in Spanish – Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia) (FARC) has come to an end. After more than five decades, and a trail of destruction that has left tens of thousands dead and millions displaced, both parties have agreed a groundbreaking peace deal.
Even in Ancient Rome, where violence, rape, pedophilia, criminality, and dehumanization were rampant on a daily basis, their legal system was better than ours than currently in the United States, where now the powerful forces of the Deep State Plutocrat Elite are attempting to, with great success, kill our judicial and legal system by subverting the courts, destroying the Appeal and Jury Trial process.
Capitalist-imperialist America is destined to have hawkish presidents in future too for advancing global interests of USA, both legal and illegal. After the successful launch of Islamophobia with full media backing, now the Hawks in USA are now busy introducing fear for the Trump phenomenon 0r Trumpophobia to terrorize the educated American voters fed up with problematic Obamamania and Democratic misrule after republican variety.
Like in Israel, US ruling elites plan for the future strategies and choose presidents to suit the needs.

Robert A. Heinlein's assertion "A generation which ignores history has no past; and no future," is a good starter to understand the issue of the Vienna Agreement. After the Munich Agreement was signed, in September 1938, Britain and France deliberately abandoned Czechoslovakia to Hitler, believing this was the only way to save the world from another war. However, Winston Churchill: "“You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war. ”Exactly as in 1938, Obama had to choose between dishonor and war, and he chose dishonor. Now we all will have both the dishonor and the war.
The 2016 elections presents a divergence in US foreign policy between the two major candidates. On one hand is the continuance of the status-quo by Hilary Clinton, who is pushing for a value-based foreign policy, as all presidents have done for decades while Donald Trump is looking for a shift in US foreign policy that hearkens backs to a time when the US was less interventionist and more explicit about its interests rather than claiming to cultivate democratic governments.
In what could have been President Obama’s greatest legacy, and indeed, what he was elected mainly for by the legions of hopeful Americans, young and old, black and white, male and female, gay and straight, was that he would use his own personal experiences as a black man, presumably oppressed and discriminated against his whole life, to inject some much needed humanity and fairness into America’s draconian and foreboding criminal and family court systems, which in fact are the heir apparent to such luminaries as Adolph Hitler’s NAZIs and other failed social engineers throughout history.
