Borg

 Accumulation
 Desolation
 Death of a planet
The way we where                                



                  
Borg  from Star Trek series

The blogger whose link is above writes 

My point is that the Borg appear from nowhere looking like a massive corporation bent on assimilating all cultural difference, using wired and wireless communication technologies that allow them instantaneous communication with each other in accomplishing the “prime directive” of overcoming resistance and literally in-corporating cultures, economies, peoples, and spaces.

Any resemblance to reality is coincidental

Mr. President

No one knows
 
 Do we walk the streets without clothing or not tell lies to make the daily fare more palatable? We all know the answer to these questions. What if, for some chance we spoke the truth, or what if others saw us as more than the threads we carry? Would we then be able to walk the streets again? Sure we would. Walking is easy. To bare ourselves is something else. Fortunately the mirror of expectation we and others hold reflect nothing like the final outcome. No one knows what the images mean, especially how they fit together. On we go and puppet portions of our lives away to duty and desire, and no matter how badly or valiantly we succeed the outcome is usually the same.  It works.

See you in court


Another day, another Trump tweet.
On Thursday, judges in the ninth circuit court of appeals upheld a temporary restraining order on Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban on arrivals from seven Muslim-majority countries. In response, almost immediately after the ruling was announced, the president tweeted (with caps lock engaged):

The Taming of the Shrew

Finally, there is another alternative that, harrowing though it is, must be considered. Perhaps Trump is not a rational actor. Maybe this is not the art of the deal. It could be that what we see is what we’ve got—mendacity and braggadocio, aggression and raw, ungoverned ego. He may not care whether he leads the Republican Party, and the United States, into crises. Like the song says, he’ll do it his way.

Criticism

Former President Barack Obama has criticized President Trump's immigration and travel ban issued on Friday, saying through a spokesman that he is "heartened by the level of engagement" over the weekend in opposition to the action.

"In his final official speech as President, he spoke about the important role of citizen[s] and how all Americans have a responsibility to be the guardians of our democracy — not just during an election but every day," Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said in a statement. "Citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake."
