Must use the embed code unless I am somehow missing the mark on the OEN Commons Search. But no matter. Time to take a realistic look at the U.S. and our history of detention centers. Hence my title, as I now briefly explain:

Many or countless others have expressed this before, but the beauty of Trump--sorry to put it that way, but there it is--is that he represents all our country has in practice stood for since its foundation. Kim Iversen I think puts the figure at 40 years here, but I must disagree with her on that and encourage her to read Howard Zinn's "A Peoples' History of America" (as I do for anyone who hasn't read it).

Our OCD with Trump will be the end of us, as it pretty much has been since our "anybody but Trump" days.

Check out this 15-minute video and decide for yourself, as always.
