I was just thinking about the right wing white supremacist nut job that killed 4 people in and outside a waffle place in the middle of the night this weekend.

He is not likely to be identified as such in most reports.

I suspect the focus will be on the gun.

"Many were relieved that the Civil War had ended...." ....with the election of Donald J.Trump to the Presidency in the year 2016, nearly 150 years after the shooting had stopped.

Jackie Robinson said, in the 1950's, "We Blacks have waited long enough for our rights." Well, that was going on 70 years ago, which is about the approx. age of the Nixon/Trump Voter.

Thank you gentlemen for showing up today.

I appreciate that.

WWII happened as a result, not of WWI, but the post-war deconstruction and reparations forced on the losers, particularly Germany.  If Reconstruction had looked more like the Marshall Plan than the Treaty of Versailles, perhaps the relief wouldn't have been 'sorta'. 

On the other hand, it's not as simple as that.
