Sounds like a whiny democrat


Playing idenfity politics? Oh man, no good

Seems like someone needs himself a safe space.

You get me real good here, bud. Not sure how I can reply. You were just so insightful and knowledge with that post, I learned a lot there and I'll definitely be taking your opinion much more seriously now.

Hillary is gonna be in prison

I know Trump people aren't big into paying attention, but he already said he doesn't want to do that and she's a good person. Oops. Maybe next time.

But again, great insight. It's becoming more clear by each post I read of yours that you have a great grasp on politics.

Oh look at that, Mr. Anti Political Correctness took to Twitter tonight to complain about Saturday Night Live. But it's cool if he does that - because he's right. Not skin-skinned at all. Nahhh.

Looks like Donny is holding a "public policy forum" at the whitehouse in february. Oddly, invitees are almost exclusively corporate titans:

Stephen A. Schwarzman (Forum Chairman), Chairman, CEO, and Co-Founder of Blackstone;
Paul Atkins, CEO, Patomak Global Partners, LLC, Former Commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission;
Mary Barra, Chairman and CEO, General Motors;
Toby Cosgrove, CEO, Cleveland Clinic;
Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO, JPMorgan Chase & Co;
Larry Fink, Chairman and CEO, BlackRock;
Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company;
Rich Lesser, President and CEO, Boston Consulting Group;
Doug McMillon, President and CEO, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.;
Jim McNerney, Former Chairman, President, and CEO, Boeing;
Adebayo “Bayo” Ogunlesi, Chairman and Managing Partner, Global Infrastructure Partners;
Ginni Rometty, Chairman, President, and CEO, IBM;
Kevin Warsh, Shepard Family Distinguished Visiting Fellow in Economics, Hoover Institute, Former Member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System;
Mark Weinberger, Global Chairman and CEO, EY;
Jack Welch, Former Chairman and CEO, General Electric;
Daniel Yergin, Pulitzer Prize-winner, Vice Chairman of IHS Markit

Glad we have someone in office who is going to finally rid of all the corruption and elitist!

I could go on all day. I hated Hillary, but Trump is a con-man. Wish my guy Kasich would have won. But he's not flashy enough for the US elections, I guess. People care too much about the show of it all than what actually matters.

It'll be awesome when he's starting a war with some country because their leader insults him. I give it 6 months. Best part is he's only gone to a couple intelligence briefings so far, showing he doesn't give a rat's a**. There'll be the "patriots" that will be puffing their chests saying it's about d**n time 'Murica is showing who's boss. Meanwhile our troops are dying somewhere for some stupid reason because Trump's ego was hurt.

Hilarious! And nice burn by Baldwin! This unfortunately will be the one thing that I look forward to the next 4 years. What a thin skinned whiny little b*tch Trump is that he as THE PRESIDENT ELECT can't stay off Twitter to whine about SNL making fun of him. Something they've done to Presidents for YEARS. This bodes well for international stability....

The reason why Trump won was because the alternate was a corrupt politician who went from broke to making milllions because of politics who also broke the law

If the left wouldn't have rigged the primaries for Hillary, Bernie probably would be president

This lady's Twitter rant is awesome! Says what so many people are thinking. Start acting like a President! Sure you're not in power "yet", but you're acting the same as before you were elected so the picture's pretty clear how he's going to act in office. You're nieve if you think a guy who can't take a joke on SNL because he's so insecure isn't going to make an international mistake when he's in charge of everything.

DEFCON level was raised to it's highest level days before the Election because everyone thought Hillary would win and ultimately start a War with Russia. In fact, Russian news TV warned their own citizens to prepare for Nuclear War and prep for food and underground shelters. You can find news clips on line of these facts. However, once Trump won, DEFCON was lowered to its safest level and now sources suggest it was due to a Trump victory.

The Clinton's are very well known as being the "puppets" for the small group of Elites, the 13 families that rule the world. This is changing, rather significantly. There has been private treaties signed by 100's of countries that will ultimately bring back freedom to the people around the globe. I know a group of people who are working on this transition which is playing out right now. What I believe will happen, once Trump is inaugurated, they may crash the markets globally and blame Trump. Who knows what happens, nobody knows. I've been researching about a topic called the "Global Reset", which has been in the works for decades and its happening now.

Putin doesn't want war with America, but Russians have always been a proud people, and he isn't interested in being minimalized like some rogue dictator of a 3rd world status entity like Castro. Putin prefers to partner with America but not with the likes of Clinton or Obama, et al. Reagan's viewed as a hero of the people by the regular folks there.

He's said as much. Did you listen to any of his campaign speeches? His first pick was the head of a racist white supremacist website, he's then chosen a bunch of billionaires and Wall Street chronies. Exactly the opposite of what he said he'd do and a great way of relating to the hard working middle class that he swore he'd fight for. How long are you going to keep your head in the sand? I'm a democrat. Go back to your Fox News for all your facts. 😂

Jesus, Tom. First of all, but markets are bound for a drop soon anyway. And it won't be Trump'a fault, though I won't mind people blaming him because everyone would do the same for Obama. That said, I know this argument won't go anywhere because it's literally impossible to argue with people who believe in conspiracies. That's your right, but man, this is what ruins politics.

I do find it funny that the Republican Party is now in bed with Putin. What a weird change of events. If you know Putin, you know he's just using him to get what he wants in the Middle East. He now has the freedom to do his s**t over there because Trump will just turn a blind eye. Really not that hard to figure out.

To be truthfully honest, the ruling elite families are real and don't think twice this is a free world. We live in a real-life matrix, everything in politics is scripted. Literally everything. College doesn't make you smart. Real world experience does. I'm not saying your uneducated. The things I hear they teach in college are printed in the books by the very companies the elite own who publish them. It trickles down into the entire school system. I chose to think outside the dang box bc it's worked for me. I'm very awake and I see through the bs in the everyday world.

This is a great post for a number of reasons. Education definitely is no substitute for experience and wisdom. As the world has faded into a place where a piece of paper with your name and a frame around it carries more weight than work and wisdom then we are going to continue to see issues. I've never been against education either but to say I'm happy with where it has gone over the last 15-20 years would be a lie. At one time as recent as 4 years ago I considered putting myself through school but I, like yourself, choose to self-educate and be my own man. I choose not to be indoctrinated by something that is held as almost being like a religion to liberals.

Not one person who went to school with Bannon said he was racist and never heard one racist statement from them. People they interviewed said they were democrats and he was one of the smartest people in class and was very respectful/kind.

 

He's not racist.

Boston Globe reporter interviewed 24 classmates of Bannon.

 

Here are some good quotes:

 

“In my view, Steve was certainly top three in intellectual horsepower in our class — perhaps the smartest,” Allen said. “But he combined horsepower with logical, well-structured arguments. Whenever Steve spoke, my advice was to ‘listen for understanding.’ That is what I am doing today.”

 

“Steve’s comments in class were peppered with political history references and quotes — everybody thought he would make money for a while and then run for the US Senate,” Pellegrini said.

 

“As a woman, minority [Asian], an immigrant, and as onetime supporter of Hillary Clinton, I believe I can be objective in my assessment of Steve Bannon,” Thai Lee said in an e-mail. “The Steve I knew in 1980’s was a very smart, studious, and polite young man. I have never heard Steve speak ill of women, minorities, or others.”

 

It’s the kind of language that was virtually unheard of in his Harvard days, from Bannon or anyone else. And some of those who got to know Bannon back then say they don’t think he believes some of those things, even now.
 
Instead, they believe he is simply doing what he was taught more than three decades ago: exploiting a business opportunity, this time in the furious, neglected legions of the white middle class. He saw a market in their sense of alienation, and Trump’s election suggests that his forecast was truer than most.
 
“If you were asking me about some of the articles published and things clearly intended to be lightning rod, I’m not sure Steve subscribes to those beliefs,” said one former classmate, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “But there’s a strong argument to be made that he was doing whatever any good business leader would do, which is serving his customers and providing a product.”

Not one person who went to school with Bannon said he was racist and never heard one racist statement from them. People they interviewed said they were democrats and he was one of the smartest people in class and was very respectful/kind.

 

He's not racist. 

Well, if we ignore the fact that his website started tagging things under "black crime," lets just go with him not being a racist...

 

Please, please, please, defend these articles on HIS site:

 

'Bill Kristol: Republican spoiler, renegade Jew'

 

'Trannies whine about hilarious Bruce Jenner billboard'

 

'Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy'

 

'Suck it up buttercups: Dangerous ****** Tour returns to colleges in September'

 

'Hoist it high and proud: The Confederate flag proclaims a glorious heritage'

 

' "Would you rather your child had feminism or cancer?" '

 

'*** rights have made us dumber, it's time to get back in the closet'

 

'Science proves it: Fat-shaming works'

 

"There's no hiring bias against women in tech, they just suck at interviews"

The idea that we are pawns being controlled by a select few isn't really a conspiracy theory. Seems real to me.

Do I think Trump will fix it? At this time, no.


Agree, it will never take one person. Collectively, as a society, our gov't needs to hear our voices and "We The People" have been heard loud and clear.

I'm glad you're okay with it because he's "serving his customers" and saw it as a business opportunity. Something makes me think if someone like this was involved with Clinton, you wouldn't quite be singing the same tune. But yeah, let's give him a pass because he's just doing what's good for business. Why don't you give that same pass to the "mainstream media." Aren't they just... "serving their customers"??? Or is this excuse just valid when it's someone you support? Because that's the vibe I'm getting here. You're going to have to defend this vile garbage with something better than "it's good business," because that's some bullshit.

Don't do this. Liberals use code speak as hate language under the guise of political correctness moreso than literally any republican I have ever seen and say it's perfectly ok. Who knew the worst and most despicable thing in the world would be to be a white, uneducated, working class, Christian male? Deplorable? Trash? Do I really need to continue? Am I offended? Crap no because I'm not a pansy but it works both ways.

The reason why I hate the Clintons is because they use their foundation to make millions for themselves. Not even 10% of the donations they receive actually help people. They pocket a lot of it and it's wrong.

Clinton went from being dead broke to being a millionaire because of politics

I do find it funny that the Republican Party is now in bed with Putin. What a weird change of events. If you know Putin, you know he's just using him to get what he wants in the Middle East. He now has the freedom to do his s**t over there because Trump will just turn a blind eye. Really not that hard to figure out.


Just because DT finds more to like about Putin than HRC did, doesn't mean Repubs are rallying behind him. LOL

By the electoral college he was chosen, because as we all know the popular vote says otherwise. Not to mention even if you look at the electoral numbers, Trump's victory had one of the lower totals in history. 12th lowest by percentage since the electoral college began(56 elections). 6th lowest by percentage since 1884! 5th lowest total since the electoral college at the 538 votes it's at now(1964). Only the buffoon George W(2x), and then Carter(1976) and Nixon(1972) had closer margins. Not exactly loud and clear to me and to the majority of voters too.

And Donald uses his foundation to pay off legal battles. Cry about it.
