Trump is also a 70 year old baby.

Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a…

Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him…

“groveling” when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!

The best part for me was that I had a dozen tweets in my feed immediately after her speech beginning the countdown to Trump calling Streep “overrated”.

Also, “I never mocked him, I showed him groveling BY mocking his handicap.” Just don’t make fun of people and people won’t assume you’re making fun of people.

This is literally every day, folks. The world won’t make it 4 years simply out of people being tired of pointing out the problems every single day.

12 days till doomsday.

Just curious, what exactly do you expect will happen when Trump is sworn in? “Doomsday” insinuates mass death, anarchy, lawlessness. I’m pretty sure it will be business as usual and everybody will go about their lives.

I expect a crazy bigoted, sexist, bully to take control of our government and our nukes.

Okay. Obama is a crazy, hateful, conceited, bully but you’ve been pretty cool with him.

Ignoring Warb’s condemnation of Trump for a second…Obama is a crazy, hateful, conceited bully? Really? That’s an accurate assessment of the man and his personality?

From my point of view, yes. Yes, very much.

I could go as far as smug and even conceited, but I’d be interested to know what actions of his demonstrate his craziness and hatefulness to you.

He has been very hateful of cops, from day one. All of his speech and rhetoric is hateful of cops. He is very hateful of conservatives, he’s proven this time and again. I personally think he is crazy just because of his radical allegiance to a failed ideology. Socialism doesn’t work, history has proven has much yet he and his keep wanting it.

Think of Socialism like a spectrum; on the far left is things like minimum wage, work hours, and the banning of child labor. On the far right is things like abolishing private ownership entirely. The things on the left have worked, and continue to work, the things on the right haven’t.

  1. We obviously disagree on that description of Obama

  2. I am not all that “cool” with him. May I remind you that in fact I was so not “cool” with him that I didn’t vote for him in 2012(of course I didn’t vote for Romney either)? I just don’t have an obsession with hating everything Obama.

I know, I mean he’s talked about banning them from coming into the country, and said a Judge was unqualified to judge a case merely because he was a cop, and he said of countries sending cops and conservatives here that “they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Obama is very hateful of cops and conservatives.

Of course, most of this is merely my opinion,

Yes the opinion of someone obsessed with hating Obama.

Trump is as much the “apocalypse” as Obama was. It all depends on your philosophy.

bull****.

I felt very threatened under Obama, and the figures seem to confirm my fears since attacks on the Police have increased under him and my health costs have skyrocketed.

are increased attacks on police really the fault of Obama? It is not his fault that there have been an increase in the headlines of cops killing unarmed black people. I am not saying that these incidents were all justified, but clearly some have that opinion and a few have reacted to that by attacking cops.

I feel far safer under a President Trump than I ever would under Obama.

I wonder if you’ll still be saying that in few months. Wait, am I thinking? This is you we are talking about, of you will say that even if you shouldn’t feel safer.

But again, it’s just my opinion based on my experiences and what I’ve seen.

and the fact that you’ll vote for the Republican Presidential candidate and support a Republican President no matter what.

I don’t care what Meryl Streep thinks of Trump, I really don’t care what Trump thinks of what Meryl Streep thinks of Trump, and I really don’t care what JK Rowling thinks of what Trump thinks of what Meryl STreep thinks of Trump.

JEDIT: I also really don’t care how many dresses are left in D.C. and if Trump is right that the answer is zero.

That really muddles things, imo. Reasonable regulation of the market does not fall under “socialism”.

Socialism is the means of production of goods and services being placed under the control of the political authorities in the name of “The People”. Economic Fascism, national and globalist, is the political authorities exercising control through nominally “private” owners mixed with outright state ownership. It is, in fact, a thoroughly leftist socialist totalitarian sort of system. Hitler and Mussolini were sincere and accurate in identifying themselves as socialists.

Thing is, there are TWO political spectrums, the Ideological(horizontal) and the Actual(vertical).

The purpose of politics is to actually bring a people to optimum conditions and actually protect them from the tyranny of men. This means that ‘The Human Optimum’ belongs at the top and totalitarianism at the bottom of the Actual spectrum.

Complete socialism(Communism) is on the left and oligarchy of private interests who control the politics for themselves belongs on the right of the ideological spectrum.

At the center of both spectrums are the people who want to find their way to The Optimum. In the U.S. context, these are American conservatives and independents with conservative values.

Imagine a sheer cliff with many people trying to climb across the face in various directions.

Ideologically, the conservatives want to go up, the lefties WANT to go down, and private oligarchies want to go off to more of that.

I’m just waiting until I can laugh my ass off when Trump is president and finally does something so insane and egregious that all the people who vocally support him suddenly become very very quiet.

Hopefully it won’t result in any deaths or anything.

I honestly have no horse in this race since I am neither a Trump supporter or Trump hater. But I am about 80% sure nothing drastic will really take place under Trump, so I see both sides being disappointed. The left, and all the Anti-Trumpers, will be sad that he isn’t the Bond villain they really want him to be and when they finally realize there will be no concentration camps built for the Mexicans and Gays. And anyone who voted for him really thinking that he’d do most of what he said he would do will be sad and disappointed as well when he doesn’t do hardly anything he said he would. I honestly see this being a mostly uneventful few years ahead of us.

I tend to agree for the most part, although I think the potential for Trump to screw up royally on the international relations front could have serious implications. He has thin skin, a quick temper, and he responds well to flattery.

The things you pwn end up pwning you.

Rarely are things clear in politics. This is where I got the idea of socialism as a spectrum from.

Reasonable regulation of the market does not fall under “socialism”.

Depends on who you ask.
