I've never seen anything like it in my life.

People threatening to kill themselves because Trump won. People telling me that anyone who voted for him is a misogynist, racist, and everything else. I know people who voted for him that are not those things, they just did not believe in Hillary.

I didn't vote for Trump or Clinton. I didn't think either were quality candidates, and for me to vote, I'd truly have to believe in the person running, which I generally don't. Maybe that makes me ill-informed to understand, but I really cannot understand reacting in this manner to a presidential election.

Is this even normal? I can fully understand being upset, but this has gone to another level that I am struggling to even understand. Does anyone here actually think their rights are going to be stripped from them because Trump won?

While I have political views, I'm generally apathetic to the election process as regardless of who wins, I see no changes in my own life irrespective of who is sitting in the White House.

I get protesting if we actually had a body of work from Trump that you could go okay, this doesn't work and it's fucking up things more. But to be protesting over an election result that was not what Bush v Gore 2000 was? It seems a bit much. Apparently 33% of Hillary voters think the election result is not legitimate according to an ABC News poll. All because Hillary lost, suddenly it's not legitimate? What the fuck?

When I worry about the way things are going politically, and how it might affect the economy, I remember that I lived through the worst financial crash in living memory and during that time I perhaps took a 5% hit in overall income. I probably put up with a car that I didn't like for 6 months longer than i would have done otherwise, and that was about it. Then I don't feel so bad.

However, my position in society is pretty concrete. I'm white, able bodied, reasonably young, financially comfortable, have a decent education and qualifications, I'm straight, in a long term relationship and live in a nice neighbourhood. Perhaps I would feel differently if a few of those things were changed and my position was a bit more precarious.

Most of it no, but at the same time to a small point I can see why. The media has stirred up so many lies, manufactured stories (along with the legit ones), buried things that don't fit their image of Trump it should scare people. Over at racketboy there's a thread going on how f'd up things are (general thread that Trump oozed into) and he had this long post, well cited, lots of images. Many of these stories of scared muslims women with their head scarves thrown off are being found to be manufactured and debunked, some with various so called attacks from whites working over minorities. Also not that many weeks back there was this Trump event, a gay group showed up there in support, but you don't hear about this in the US media do you? Better yet, Trump actually pointed at them, asked for their huge rainbow flag that said ilke LBGTQ for Trump on it, pulled it up on stage and waved it for a cheering audience and mugged for the camera with it. Who carried that shit? Third string honest local media and the foreign press not in the back pocket of the DNC suck up machine.

When you see fucked up one sided coverage of the guy, not one of them other than his few buddies in the press like that crank Hannity on Fox's nightly opinion block, covering the other side of it you'd be scared to a point too. Ever read the guys plans for the future on the site for a long time now? The dude is like a 1980s style blue dog democrat with his infrastructure plans, his government blue collar jobs bill ideas (vs the lefty work for the green jobs/made up jobs numbers stuff) and others. Sure he has some goodly right leaning stuff when it comes to the dollar like forcing social security to ONLY be tapped for those paying into it locking it away from pilfering politicians who have used it as a fund for shitty democrat(more than republican but both) mooching plans which has bankrupted it and more. The rational members of the DNC remaining say they will work with the GOP in the Senate and House to pass such things to help the big swath of the US that took it in the ass the last 10 years. Again, something the press on the large is NOT covering.

Watch his first 100 days if some psycho doesn't assassinate him first (or shortly after) and you'll see what government was back under the days of Reagan, Bush Sr and Clinton -- parties working to actually get shit done versus stomping their feet and telling each other go radical my way or kiss off. I'm no Trump fan, did not vote for him or her, but I can see if you get beyond the fear mongering lies and spin of the media who caused this irrational wave of panic and suicide watches it actually could turn out pretty well, or at worse, 4 more years of deadlock but not likely(at least for the first 2 if the DNC pulls off a midterm majority.)



I'll throw this out there, fear December 19th. Currently there is a petition out there now with over 3M of 4.5M needed that wants to have Democrat votes count twice basically. They will come to the 1/3 of states that do not bind electors to vote for the winner (such as mine being one) and they will twist arms, beg, plead and offer assistance to switch votes to Clinton to steal the election a month and a half after the fact. Those who are not bound, states have like 1K-10K penalties for switching, and these petitioners will pay for all court costs, fines, losses and more to make sure Trump is not put in office. They're actually willing to subvert 250years of election history in this country for their own petty bullshit. Guarantee you, they fear 2nd amendment gun rights now, watch all those red leaning counties in many spots rise up in some kind of armed insurrection over that crap if it actually happened. You want American Civil War Part 2, that would be the one true way to do it.

Well let's see... over the years, Trump has been back & forth on everything(isn't even a real Republican). He only ran for President as a joke(most likely didn't think he'd get this far). He's a real estate mogul who's made his fortune off of screwing people over and "settling" in court. He has no political background. There's of course the whole "racist" thing(the KKK supporting him for one).

There's the immigration issue, abortion, gay rights, etc... but the most important to those in dire need:

Affordable Care Act(aka 'ObamaCare') - This has been a big help for people on the poverty level who otherwise couldn't afford decent insurance(or insurance at all). Also, lot's of people who have pre-existing conditions require this for continued survival. Why?... beforehand they were either denied insurance, or had to make un-affordable payments.
[yes, Trump did recently say he'd let people with pre-existing conditions continue to receive health insurance... but we'll have to wait & see how that actually turns out]

With all the protests lately(+ people wanting to move to Canada over this), he has yet to come forward and talk to everyone. The most recent news is how he just wants to live in the White House part time.

On top of everything... the American people(majority) voted for Hillary Clinton. Yet the 'Electoral College' gave the presidency to Trump. Regardless of how you argue this, it comes down to this: The American people don't want Trump... but that's who they've been given.

The Affordable Care Act ended up being a shitty fucking act to anyone who pays their own insurance without subsidies, which I guess you don't since you are defending it. Have you read Donald Trump's health plan? It's probably more ambitious than the ACA.

Electoral College in quotes, like it's some kind of dubious coalition. Jesus christ man. I will give you that "the american people do not want Trump" but guess what, faggot? They didn't want Clinton either. In fact, not even 1/3 wanted her.

Abortion, gay rights, immigration - you know how those will pan out, or is that projection? Have you read any of the events surrounding Trump and gays? If you sincerely believe the shit you've written here, then please, do the world a favor, buy a gun, and kill everyone around you. You live in an echo chamber in desperate need of a final menstruation.

Many many people here have acted sexist and narcissistic. Trump's racism? I think for me it'd be Curiel, which was his biggest fuck up of his campaign imo. It wasn't like he said anything hurtfully racist though about him either, but he literally described what racism is in his meaning towards him.

Mexico is a very corrupt country. Saying they ARE sending criminals and rapists and killers though is over reaching.. A small minority do fit this and most are just people wanting to better lives here who offer nothing but good if given the real chance at being citizens. This is why I want a blanket amnesty over who is here, then erect the damn wall to lessen the amount coming in. People will get through, but less people equals less piggy backing and theft from licensed workers.

I also agree with Trump to deport violent illegal offenders. I like Mexicans, and their amazing work ethic. They'd make great citizens if they ever had the chance of amnesty, and they wouldn't be forcibly relegated to vote for liberal presidents non stop to prevent potential deportation.

Those votes are like a hostage crisis. Their adult children are FORCED to vote for the left to protect their parents. Ever wonder why Obama hasn't just amnestied all these people? Why would he? It's bad business. He did say come out of the shadows. So why not issue a fucking order to amnesty them? Why would he or any other dem president risk losing all that free blue money to continue that power flow? (Before the feelings artists fry me on this one, this is a conspiracy theory in my mind on potentially why things are handled as they are, so please respect it as opinion speak. I cannot substantiate it. It's just what I've wondered. Grain of salt.)

We give 55 electors to a presidential vote, which immediately cripples the right, and insures our electors are guaranteed to the left in all but word promise. Everyone KNEW election night Hillary had California no matter what. Which is 55 in the bank early. So you gotta attach those 55 to anything Trump gets right from the start on assumption.. He's forced to win big states to pull over that 55 glass ceiling.

55 is the top amount of electors in the entire country also. This is why him winning Florida left him in contention the entire night. It's merely a counter punch. Especially since Florida can easily swing left and barely almost did. I personally believe that no liberal president would ever want to amnesty people from Mexico, because as they'd integrate more, they'd expect more for their talents and skills. This is where the right becomes more attractive..

People do not get how similar whites and mexicans are in many ways. I love the concept of amnesty. This way they can pay into the system. It's a simple idea and I think it'd work great. Personally due to my location almost all my friends are Mexican. I don't even have a single white friend I actively even hang out with. It's not intentional. I am not totally racist towards other whites, but it just doesn't trend with me currently. It's bizarre, but it makes sense due to the high amount of mexican concentration here.

Let's really analyze this Trump racism though. He said first they were not sending their 'best'. So he's acknowledged condescendingly that criminals are coming and they have good people there, but we're getting bad ones. So immediately he's overblown the violent criminal thing and assumed wrong.

Still though, does that specifically have anything to do with race, or is this a cut down on a culture? Last I checked, Mexico was a corrupt country, and calling that out isn't racist. Though it is easy to let the feelings that come with that statement make it more specific then it really was.

Knowing Trump. Who the hell knows, it could have come off less racist then he intended. The guy is a grab bag. This chaos makes him humanly relatable no matter how many it disgusts. How does it really make it about race as a direct context with the statement specifically though without some form of reaching? What if he had said that about Canadians. Would anyone call him racist?

Trump supporters need to just cop to the fact part of their vote was aroused from a concern for Muslim migration. Mine sure was. I am not sitting there excited to see Europe 2.0 where you got leaders like Merkel who care so much about political correctness and forced multi cultural-ism. Look at Sweden. That place was a nightmare of censorship now to hide the general demographic that stuff was coming from.

This was probably the general feeling people had with Hillary and the refugee's. She was Merkel reloaded. Meanwhile I'm on neo-geo.com reading posts from furious people like Shroom telling us about what is going down. I was heavily involved in experiencing European members issues with this.. It influenced me a lot.

So, let's contrast things: A illegal mexican immigrant who is violent may kill someone, but I'd rather take the 'texas hold'em' style variance to allow that, then bring a ton of war torn people in with naive faith they are all going to be respectful and immediately move away from a religious and political ideology that makes assimilation a nightmare? No, it is absolutely not fair to be prejudice towards them and assume so terribly either. This is what is so difficult about the times we are in. It is wrong and cruel, and especially bothering to me with innocent children..

I live in literal driving distance from that San Bernardino attack when that happened, and the main guy behind it was and american muslim. Khizr Khan is bitching up something fierce over Trumps disgust towards Islam, but WHO killed his son? A suicide bomber that he heroically stopped..
You won't see a liberal media head bitch about Islam, because Islam is the ultimate way to fuck up leftist style reasoning.

People tell Trump supporters they got conned. I mean of course it was a con, every campaign ever has been a con. Trump is skillful in inclusiveness and persuasion. I preferred his con to Hillary's. It's just these straw grabbers five minutes out the gate calling all these media opinion pieces from the same fucking sources citing all these polls.

Really? Let's let him actually take the office first. He'll appoint dumbasses, but its the variance once again. Donald Trump is like having my clueless gardner run a nuclear plant the next day. It's a terrible idea, but the results will be a 'blast'. (hopefully not literally, ahaha....) Of course it's a risk, but it was the decision I made and I stand by it. His basic core shit was worth voting for to me, and if he does nothing. Hey, I tried for what I wanted and I can complain if I choose to.

Wanna hear the sad truth? EVERYONE is racist on some level. I consider it part of human nature.

If you've never had a racist feeling in your lives once, then you are not a racist. Good luck finding those people though. I've never met a person who could claim that.

Only one I've seen in the media is Lil Wayne, who is a amazing interview. Seriously, he's out of this world bizarre and speaks his heart pretty heavy at times. Probably just a lot of drug induced peaceful momentary feelings though.

It's all organized bullshit. There is footage going around from the Wisconsin "protests" where there are buses 2-3 miles long lined up bringing them in. You can search and see the Craiglist ads paying anywhere from a measly $15 an hour to $1,500 a week. This was always the plan anyway. If Trump won, they were going to do this, virtually every single day. These are the same people from that Chicago rally and through the summer. They are professional organizers, getting funded from outside sources and being paid to do it. It's no coincidence they went "silent" right when the conventions happened and afterwards, just to show up once again the day after the election and beyond.

If Trump won, they were going to do this, virtually every single day. These are the same people from that Chicago rally and through the summer. They are professional organizers, getting funded from outside sources and being paid to do it. It's no coincidence they went "silent" right when the conventions happened and afterwards, just to show up once again the day after the election and beyond.

There's gotta be in 100,000's of people across the country protesting right now, are they all paid?

It's your right as an American to voice a distaste against Trump or anyone else, or even protest them. Rioting is not though. That includes blocking traffic, damaging businesses and personal property or injuring others. Lighting things on fire.

Not every single one of them, there are some that probably have grievances and want to be heard. But the ones with the professional signs, they definitely are and that's a great percentage of them.

Yeah after he assrapes the countries assets and mixes them in with his own. How do you know he isn't? Did he post his taxes? Nobody really knows how much debt or cash he has. He is now supposedly putting his assets into a blind trust... into his kids names. Doesn't sound very blind to me.

blind trust
nounNorth American
noun: blind trust; plural noun: blind trusts

a financial arrangement in which a person in public office gives the administration of private business interests to an independent trust in order to prevent conflict of interest. Under the trust, the owner does not know how the assets are managed.

Also his kids are in his cabinet. Total conflict of interest. Then he can put all his money in some offshore Panama papers type shit.

The problem I had is neither of the candidates should have gotten this far..both of them have severe problems.

Trump has zero experience on anything political related, but then again the other choices were pretty crap, so it was a lose lose situation with the republicans.

If Bernie was the democrats choice, he most likely would have won the presidency since he was neutral on basically everything and seemed like an alright guy. The only reason Clinton won was because she was in bed with most of the democrats that wanted shit. That and she had the "If you don't vote for me, you're sexist" thing going for her.

People thought that when 2009 began, the country was going to suddenly get drastically better. It didn't.

Now, the same people think the country is going to suddenly get drastically worse. It won't.

It's all going to continue on like it has been since before any of us were born. Little course corrections here and there, but the United States is too large a ship to make any sharp turns. And any large turns take years and years to make, by which time someone new has put on the hat and spun the wheel back the opposite direction.

Every election (well, other than Obama's first), the people overjoyed celebrating and the people devastated and bitter are all the same. Asshole idiots. For the kids in their teens or early 20s, in college or just getting out, I get it. They need to fill their lives with useless melodrama... and if it wasn't this, it would just be something else. But anyone older than, say, 26 who is having this kind of overblown reaction in either direction makes me fucking sick to my stomach.

When I worry about the way things are going politically, and how it might affect the economy, I remember that I lived through the worst financial crash in living memory and during that time I perhaps took a 5% hit in overall income. I probably put up with a car that I didn't like for 6 months longer than i would have done otherwise, and that was about it. Then I don't feel so bad.

However, my position in society is pretty concrete. I'm white, able bodied, reasonably young, financially comfortable, have a decent education and qualifications, I'm straight, in a long term relationship and live in a nice neighbourhood. Perhaps I would feel differently if a few of those things were changed and my position was a bit more precarious.

Throw them into a real shit hole country and see how long they last with their 'you must address me and my 35 genders this way' attitude bullshit.

This spoiled brat culture is hilarious. These are the same type of mental idiots who defend police shootings against thugs that totally created that situation by fucking with cops, then it gets defended with the BLM movement. You can't justify it. Then they cry when the cops get off without charges. Which they already knew that outcome was coming because the original action was bullshit. I was watching a video of some idiot on the freeway and some dumbshit girl got hit by a car and all these drama queens are like OMG how?! It's like the pitch of night and you're fucking with peoples commute home on a freeway. Who even can prove or knows who they voted for.

Honestly, maybe you guys are right and I should consider a gun now. I was thinking about it last night. I've seen no riots in my immediate area so far, but who knows what next week will bring. Ain't no way I'm winning a fight against 30 people at once. Problem is, we've been regulated here already.

do you expect them all to carpool to a red state or can you imagine that maybe since there's so many anti-trump voters in their own state that they might seem large and representative of their own majority opinion and thats why they are there together to reinforce their votes

mind you i wouldn't be caught dead at a march or rally like this, but i think you're being a little bitter. you can't blame a nation of pussies for their reactions no matter how futile they may seem or be.

The city I work in is a moderate to liberal city of 100K. They advertised a protest at the intersection where most of our protests take place. About a dozen cute girls, 2 middle aged guys w/beards and knit caps, and 1 really old confused guy were there. None of the signs matched. It was really disjointed. One was about the 99%, one was about equal pay for equal work. It was...odd.

I really do not know what I expect.

I guess that if I wanted to protest something, I wouldn't bother in a place that already agrees with me. Might as well stay at home and do something productive...

So many fucking feminists are bitches who can't get men and are just bitter. So they turn to this supposedly inclusive pro women movement. It's not what it was originally meant for so, it's mostly just to spout anti white racism and hating men. It's the most safe space bullshit ever, yet they expect you to grin and agree while they check your privilege and shit on you for being a man.

Im gonna plagiarize myself:

No problem. I think he's an egomaniac and haven't been able to find a shred of evidence that he would do anything in the publics best interest. When I was a kid / early teen he was kind of a hero of mine. Looking at it all now though I see he's mostly just full of shit and has made a life's journey of one bad decision after another.

His scorched Earth attitude this election has embarrassed me to be an American. I hope people hold him accountable and he doesn't use the defense department as his piggy bank selling the world Trump nukes. I also hope democracy survives.

Yeah really he scares me with his fascist tendencies. Why does he have to stop talking and make a big scene everytime there's a protester ? His media blacklist, and so on.

I think we should have some respect and reverence for our leaders while still holding them accountable. He hasn't had that for anyone else so I won't feel bad making fun of him. During my lifetime every president is the worst one yet. Now I believe we'll truly know what a bad president looks like.

Trump responded that he hoped Macri would come to the White House before that, and promised Argentina and the United States would have “the closest relationship in history,” the statement said.

in other words Argentina will get an extra helping of butt fucking in the coming years. Macri, our own cunty Business-man/crook/President, it's pretty much his doing. cheers.

If he had just lost it cleanly or at least respected the talking points, I'd still be watching him on TYT. I rarely will check out something there now, unless I wanna get annoyed. I liked his support of Bernie though. I enjoyed that channel as it felt a hell of a lot more balanced then the more mainstream liberal outlets. Once he got into that jail thing with Dinesh though, I was like 'fuck this guy'. What a disingenuous coward he was for that. He's also never addressed it that I've seen. If he just admitted to it, I could stomach him more.

Cenk admittedly fills the crowd with what he calls the 'TYT army', like he just wanted a rome style shout fest and not a real debate. He's like Alex Jones. The other ass hat who is famous for yelling over someone who is speaking once it exposes the gaping logic wounds in the opposition.

What I find so amusing (if that indeed is the correct word) is that these people are the new racists/sexists. True-blue, to the core racism/sexism will simply never go away, but it definitely isn't as widespread as so many claim it is. Low hanging fruit type insulting during a heated argument is not racism/sexism.

People like the ones in the video, especially that TYT woman are flat out racist/sexist. There's no doubt about it.

In this day and age, if you want to watch a white supremacist speak ill of other races, you have to dig for it. It won't be on CNN/NBC/etc. If you want to see a flat out racist or sexist person against white males...all you need to do is turn on the TV.

We as a society have done a pretty good job of shutting up white supremacists. They get their occasional rally where they get to spew their hate but anymore, its rare and few of us will socially tolerate it. These crazies, on the other hand, are given public voices to spew their completely unfounded hate of white males. How long until everyone has enough? These women are slandering 90 million fathers, husbands, boyfriends, brothers, friends. These men raise children, and work jobs, and help society, and die for the country, the list goes on and on. I know for one, my wife cannot stand it as she knows they are slandering me unfairly. Worst of all, the public media has given them a voice to do it. How long until everyone gets sick of their hate filled rants? It happened with white supremacists...it will happen to them.

The protests and aren't rational, and neither is the gloating from Trump and his supporters.

If the protesters really want to complain about the result that badly, they should be organizing a nation-wide boycott on coal and directing their anger at Hillary and the DNC. Attacking Trump and those who voted for him makes absolutely no sense.

As for the right-wingers, they have nothing to brag about. They didn't win anything. The election result had practically nothing to do with them. The liberals lost because that's what they asked for by making Hillary the candidate, and by millions of registered democrats opting not to vote at all.

There is nothing wrong with the electoral college. It's the only way for conservatives to stand a chance in major elections, and it serves as a constant wake-up call to the democrats when they choose not to listen to the voices of their supporters.

What a skewed vision of reality.

If anything, my faith in the electoral system has been slightly restored after being whittled away to zero after GWB's two (suspicious) wins. Because nobody EXCEPT Trump's deranged followers wanted him to win. The Democrats obviously didn't want Trump, but neither did the Republican Party...and the media presented a nearly completely-unified front to blast him continuously, making him look as stupid and evil as possible for the entire time he ran. The fact Trump won in spite of all that is almost completely down to his supporters.

And liberals did not make Hillary the candidate. We got her force fed to us by borderline criminal means.

There is nothing to skew. The numbers speak for themselves. Just look at the results of the past few elections: the only times liberals lose, is when they don't care about winning. Trump "won" in spite of losing the popular vote because millions of registered democrats chose not to vote at all. It's clear they chose not to because the candidate they were given wasn't one they could believe in, and the onus was on Hillary to do something about that. For those who feel like their lives wouldn't change much regardless of who got elected, there is little point in voting. Other than that, most everyone who actually voted at all did so along party lines like they almost always do no matter what. Both the democrats and republicans each have about 60 million supporters who will vote for whatever major candidate that's presented to them, no matter who they are or what they say.

As for that part about Hillary's candidacy, I thought context offered by the rest of my post would have made it obvious where the distinction between the establishment and the voters was supposed to fit.

It's not like it was a landslide or something.

And secondly, what you are saying is six of one/half-dozen of the other. Trump's supporters won him the election because they supported him and voted when liberal voters failed to turn out for Hillary. But I've never seen the entire political machinery on both sides, the special interests who own them, and pretty near the entire media all turn against one man, and then have that man win anyway. Out of all the people and groups who usually engage in shenanigans and try to subvert the voting process, none of them seemed to want Trump. That's kind of incredible and makes me think, hey, maybe our electoral system isn't quite as worthless as I thought.

Well, she did win it by ~2 million votes, which isn't an insignificant number in my opinion. It's certainly not on the same level as Bush/Gore.

My point is this. Chicago has 2.7 million residents, all in a tiny space. Montana has 1.04 million, Wyoming has .584 million.

Saying that a giant, concentrated collective has more say than other more spread out (and diverse) populations is shitty. I chose those two states mostly at random, but there is a point I'm trying to make.

My whole point is this...the hard left wants to cry "We must have DIVERSITY!!!!" every chance they get. Once the election went the way it went, they all of the sudden want to swap that stance to "majority rules'.

If majority rules, then it could easily be argued that the voice/needs of the current 196.8 million white citizens far outweigh the combined needs of the black (37.6m), native American (2.2m), Asian (14.4m), mixed race (5.5m), or Hispanic (50.4m). I mean 196.8m having absolute say over the combined voice of 110.1m seems pretty logical to me...right? Well, with those that are currently bitching...it would be wrong. They want equal say diversity when it suits their purpose, and all or nothing majority rules when it suits them. Pretty typical stupidity.

Our forefathers wanted diversity represented in the elections, thus every state has a proportional say, that's all I was trying to get across.

My only beef with the current electoral system is that states are all or nothing. If the overall isn't that way, the states shouldn't be either.

In case you didn't know the Democratic voting block was diverse. Whites made up a solid percentage of Clinton votes.
Clinton's 3rd best state also happens to be the Whitest, most rural state in America. Go figure.

But anyways nobody is saying that a voter in Chicago should have more say than a voter in east bumfuck. They are saying that they should have THE SAME say.

The "founding fathers" also didn't think that direct election of Senators was a good idea. But we has since changed that.

With 190 million people in the "white" camp...it's kind of a "no-shit" thing that a good portion of any candidate's votes will be from white voters.

And there is a balance in place. Illinois has 20 electoral votes, Wyoming has 3 (singling out two fairly random states, one with high population, one with small). It would take the combined effort of Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska just to beat What Illinois has. I'd say this is a pretty level playing field, if not slightly tilted in the favor of mass cities. It's much easier to get one city to vote to one side, than the mass of all of those states. The proof is in the pudding, California, Illinois, New York, Texas...all are pretty locked in.

I honestly didn't think the Trumpster could win, he was so badly damaged, Hitler card played left and right, every little Tweet hyper-analyzed, and the final 1-2 KO punch with NBC News holding onto that pussy-grab tape for months and strategically releasing it in time for the 2nd debate so that millions watching would learn of it...

He survived it all, much to the surprise of many which shows more so how bad a candidate Hellary Rotten Nixon was in losing those "blue wall" states and being unable to take him out in Florida...

Before I went to sleep that night, I saw that he had won Florida and Ohio, and realized he won't go down in flames, but I didn't expect a Pennsylvania win... I didn't see what else could give him a path to electoral victory after that, but I was at least comfortable that he wasn't taking the republicans down in an embarrassing landslide loss as our precious darlings on the democrat side were hoping... That they've come unhinged in the aftermath given all the fake predictions is understandable...

Trump actually tried to work for it in key states, while Hillary thought she could just cruise right into the WhiteHouse, let him trip up with his gaffes, and bring B.J. "Bubba" Clinton along for the ride... Nope. Sorry. #NotHerTurn

Exactly. The DNC targets minorities, large cities, and the young. They also try to target women, but are far less successful. The minority population alone is close to 112 million. There close to 30 million 18-24 year old citizens of the US.

So, targeting 112 million minorities + 30 million young voters plus the best you can get from the female portion of the 190 million whites in the country. (As a FYI, The populations of New York, LA, and Chicago total 42.9 million people...all three cities the DNC always takes)

The idiotic GOP targets mostly white people, especially white males. So less than half of the 190 million white citizens.

Its a "well, no shit" that the DNC would want to get rid of the Electoral College. They are far better at gathering mass votes.

I think everyone's vote should count, as did they, it's just that to give each state something approximating their own 'say' we need an electoral college to make that a reality. If you remove the electoral college you weaken the voice of those in undesirable geographical areas, second hand, if you will.

And remember, populous states already get the lion's share of electoral votes.

The only reason anyone makes a big deal about the popular vote vs. the electoral college today is because of how polarized times have become. Twice in recent years we've had a republican win a narrow contested victory against a democrat where the popular tally won out by a small margin.

The electorial college has 2 problems I see.

#1. Unless you're in a swing state your vote is next to useless.

a. Most states have a majority of Republicans if they are more rural or Democrats if they are urban. If you aren't the most you can hope for is amking it closer.

b. Swing states are basically the only thing that matters to worry about making it go one way or another. So if you don't live there why bother?

#2. Areas that have ridiculously less people get more representation then densly populated ones. A state like Wyoming gets more electorial votes per person then California gets per person. In doing that you give people in rural areas more of a voice then urban ones. Yes it would mean big cities would have a stronger voice but in the way it works now the majority of people are technically considered the minority since their vote means less then people in sparsely populated areas. It seems pretty fucked up all things considered.

The real mistakes of Obama were domestic. Letting liberals careen into elitism against the Midwest, and pushing them further away from science and math, deeper into their buttfuck retarded bibles. The US foreign policy has been pretty bad (Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Israel), but at no point in the past 8 years has the Russian government been a victim of the US.

The deal is this, he and his administration have been serious assholes to Russia for the past 8 years running. He has shoved his useless opinions about them in the world's face again and again...and Putin finally had enough of his meddling and fired back. Now he's being a fuck about it...

Lol

Putin has at the very least been extremely assertive in recent years, if not aggressive. Are we supposed to sit back and let authoritarian regimes in Russia and China take over the world? Why do you think the Russians wanted Trump to win?!

Going back to the electoral college thing, do this one day for fun:
Next time you have a group of people vote, tally up everything and then say "Well majority rules, oh wait no it doesn't.... we're a democratic republic and as the leader I say this is what we're doing."

Wow Smokehouse has said some goofy things over the years, it's getting worse though. If he's not on drugs, which I don't think he is, he definitely needs them.

Are they really still pushing that Russian hackers narrative? I wonder if that announcement Trump is going to make on Tuesday will have anything to do with this. I wouldn't be surprised if he denied their involvement officially. I don't generally watch the news, but it was on in another room & I heard a headline of something like "Russian hacker malware found on laptop at power grid. Laptop confirmed to not be hooked up to anything" and just shaking my head at how ridiculous it all sounds. The general public is probably getting tired of all this. The news before & after he gets sworn in is going to be night & day.

Nearly 2 months later and I am still in awe that a reality show TV star became president of the superpower of the world.

And now there are people gearing up for the next election cycle...this is insanity.

Though, if there's one thing Trump's doing right, it's not giving a fuck about China's feelings. Obama failed in that regard.

News is already 24/7 and you don't watch it anyway so I wouldn't sweat it.

Huh?

Have you seen what has happened to white people (particularly the republican loving heartland) over the past 30 years?

Massive job losses (particularly in the manufacturing sector)
Drug epidemics.
Falling Life expectancy

What laptop do you know that isn't "hooked up to anything"?

Stuxnet was designed to infect computers offline. It did it by running multiple zero day entry points. It could spread online, or offline through USB, as well as 2 other points that I forgot about. This method was replicated in the cyber attack that destroyed part of an aramco oil refinery, and could possibly be laying dormant in US power grids. If a power grid goes down in any country, the number of civilian injury, much less deaths, from hospitals that lose power, and traffic systems that shut down, would create a greater disaster than 9/11.

Throughout the election cycle I wanted Hillary and Trump to debate this without using layman's terms. It never happened. We keep the people stupid and then think accordingly.

Single target custom firmware altering centrifuge timings to degrade over a long period of time while displaying normal functioning system stats, no one caught it until mechanical systems started failing en masse

neither would've been able to understand what it was let alone articulate & debate it

brand new critical infrastructure buildings or factories will generally have uninteruptible power supply (UPS) charged by solar collectors & gas generators engineered into the electrical system.

should really be building code criteria nationwide
