Re: Pence state rigging the election
all have implemented state laws and local level tactics targeted to suppress voter participation by college, black, latino, asian and other minority and progressive communities.
Another state is Alabama......closing all the DMV offices in poor areas so acceptable IDs are difficult or impossible to obtain.
The GOP is so classy......they can't win with out cheating.

Well we now have a Republican president and congress.
I hope they can figure out how to govern because the ball in now in their court.
It looks to me like they made their case plainly over the last few years that they have no interest in governing. Their plan, now that the ball is in their court, is to turn it into a wrecking ball and use it to demolish our government and our civilization.
Our country and the planet are in for some seriously bad times for what looks like the rest of my life.
Obviously the Democratic pundits miscalculated how pissed off the average white blue collar American worker is the seemed to have made it to the voting booth in record numbers.
There were a lot of miscalculations. I wonder how much more pissed off those people are going to be when they find out how they are going to be rewarded for their votes by the republicans?

Re: 2020
What would happen if Obama ran for President in 2020?
Michelle Obama?
Trump would have her imprisoned or assassinated. He made it plain during the campaign that either alternative for his opponent is ok with him.
He is a psychopath and a narcissist and he will soon be the most powerful person on the planet. He is convinced that he can do anything he wants with no consequences. Remember, he said he could shoot someone in public and not lose any votes.
He will be the last president of the United States of America.

Re: The Clinton Machine
It's not a question of what she voted for, but what she demonstrates that she will vote for.
She lost, so she will have zero input in the future of America. Who the fuck cares what she would have done now?

A clown car rerun
So we are going to get a rerun of the clown car, Carson, Cruz, Christie.......with a bunch of other dimwits thrown in; Giuliani, Gingrich, Palin.
We are already seeing violence and threatened violence against minorities around the country. In schools bullies and the children of bigots feel empowered to terrorize anyone they don't like.
This is exactly the kind of behavior that enabled the nazi rise to power. A few assassinations of the press by the "2nd amendment folks" as Trump calls them and the press will stop reporting on the abuses of power.
Scientific research will be de-funded because Trump denies evidence. OUR public lands will be sold off to his rich cronies and turned into slag heaps, including our national parks and national forests. Federal lands will be turned over to the states which don't have the budgets to manage them so they will be sold off. Controlling a few major wildfires would break the budgets of most states.
Armed militias will terrorize the public at will as we have already seen in the case of the Bundys in Oregon and Nevada.
I am torn between utter fear of what these assholes are going to do to our incredible America and wanting to see all of them and their supporters actually get the pile of shit that they want to turn America into. Karma is a bitch.

Re: The Italian hotel owner
What about loving your neighbor who lives next door? What if by helping your neighbor in the refugee camp you threaten the wellbeing of your neighbor next door?
Wow, there's a thought, what about helping your neighbor next door AND people in refugee camps, plus any other people in need that you run across?
You could even set up organizations take care of it efficiently and to not work at cross purposes, rather than give tax breaks (that the rest of us don't get) to the ultra wealthy who used their wealth to rig everything in their own favor. They have also been amazingly proficient at whipping up fervor and indignation and fear among the right-wing side of the political divide. Part of this is to further their nutty ideology and part of it is, as a distraction, while they rob the government and the people the government belongs to.
Good grief, Don the Con appointed a person who has spent her adult life in a crusade to shut down public education as the secretary of education! Are you shitting me?

Re: reaching across the aisle
... But we didn't go to any trouble, we just looked at the fake stuff the Left came up with and saw the truth.
Nope. You saw lies masquerading as truth, and it matched what you wanted to believe was true, so you swallowed it. It allowed you to hate Obama without admitting it's because he's black.
The one thing I have not seen anyone mention is, that if Faith's delusional claim that the documents are faked is true, then either one or the other of these things is true.
1. On August 4, 1961, someone in Hawaii knew that Obama was going to run for President and so put his birth announcement in the newspaper,
or
2. Obama has a time machine and traveled back to August 4, 1961 and placed the announcement in the paper himself.
I say all these things knowing that eventually I'll be shown to be right. I may be dead by then, who knows, but it will come out eventually.
As you keep saying about virtually everything you believe, because it HAS to fit your ideology, not because you are interested in truth. Or reality.
What I have the most trouble understanding is what exactly he has done to inspire her hatred?
Faith says:
quote:
I am quite willing to say I believe Obama is really a Muslim at heart, no problem at all, don't need to prove anything about his birth to say that. Also a Marxist, totally a Marxist. He's betrayed the country in multiple ways through his anti-American beliefs, those being two of them.
What specific Muslim and Marxist actions does she think "betrayed the country"?
Meanwhile, her reverence for Don the Con seems to mean she thinks we have had more than enough clean air to breath and clean water to drink, and enough public education, and enough treating other people with dignity and respect (PC run amuck), and definitely enough helping poor people feed their families.
It's time to stop taxing the weathy and starting treating poverty as a character flaw that we all know it is.

Treating other people with decency and not being an asshole run amuck.

Re: Feeling Post Election Trauma
Trump is a deplorable human being and he will soon be leader of the most powerful country on Earth. This should be a cause of great concern to people of all stripes everywhere throughout the world.
I keep thinking about what terrible role models Trump and his family are for my grandchildren.
I guess I am still in shock that America elected someone with enough personality disorders to fill a textbook. His appointees want to dismantle our government and our civilization. No wonder 65,000,000++ of us feel despair and fear.
