I also opposed his opponent much more because I wanted to at least feel secure if I disagreed openly with my government.
Who did these things?
That was the start of the widening of the political divide. That was when the name-calling became unbearable: when it became somehow acceptable to strip others of their career, their achievements, and their property for not agreeing with their government.
Like any administration
A couple of years ago, a Republican committee staff director told me candidly (and proudly) what the method was to all this obstruction and disruption. Should Republicans succeed in obstructing the Senate from doing its job, it would further lower Congress's generic favorability rating among the American people. By sabotaging the reputation of an institution of government, the party that is programmatically against government would come out the relative winner.
Because -- Hillary was going to silence you?
Who stripped someone of their career, achievements, and property for disagreeing with the government?
like Kim Davis
You think he will outlaw abortion and overturn gay marriage
Trump is silencing journalists RIGHT. NOW.
He outsources ALL of his manufacturing work
doesn't want to show us his tax returns
you know how his pal Putin deals with complainers?
Hell I myself know more about world events than Tillerson and more about popular culture and demographics than Sessions.
The INTOLERANCE is coming from Trump and friends. If a pizza guy refuses gays and pitches a hateful hissy fit and then loses his business because he's an asshat, oh damn well; it's a bitch to say your piece and then people don't want to buy pizza from you anymore. But if a DIFFERENT pizza guy has DONE NOTHING OF THE SORT and his pizzeria is rumored to be a sex-trafficking pedo cover and he loses his business because of A LIE --- THAT IS NOT OKAY.
However, I did not see riots over Obama's election. I did not see members of Congress openly declaring Obama as "illegitimate.
Attempting to get all the facts from a single viewpoint is called "propaganda." In light of this fact, I believe I should continue to provide you with a more complete picture of the events from my viewpoint.
What would be even more effective, TheRedneck, is if you show us the "propaganda" from which you are learning! That's the idea here, right?
...not like a mega-church with a pastor who speaks ebonics
Have you ever been to a lecture for adults -- not like a mega-church with a pastor who speaks ebonics, but like, you know, a smart person talking about a serious thing? Like a long TED Talk?
That's how I feel now. I've seen the country get drunk and weave all over the place, and I just hope there is no fatal accident ahead.
Taken all together, this confluence of events represents perhaps the most profound political crisis that this country has faced since Watergate. We have a president-elect fully prepared to violate the Constitution. We have allegations that his advisers might have worked directly with a foreign government to win the presidential election and who could also, potentially, be blackmailed by that same government. We have a Congress indifferent to these potential crises and focused instead on repealing legislation that will literally cause the premature deaths of thousands of Americans. It’s almost hard to take all of this in. It’s a disorienting and surreal moment in our history and the worst part is that last week might have represented the calm before the true storm.
George W. Bush’s first inauguration took place on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2001, and within two hours of his oath-taking he ordered a halt on the publication of all new regulations until they could be reviewed, according to the New York Times.
In a video released a few weeks after the election, Trump outlined several executive actions he planned to take on his first day in office. They included issuing a notification of the Unites States’ intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, eliminating “job-killing restrictions” on shale energy and clean coal, and formulating “a rule which says that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated.”
