One of the things that most bothers me about him, is that he seems to completely lack impulse control. You insult him or cross him in the slightest way, and he comes at you like a swarm of African bees. And his constant complaining about being a victim (he's being victimized this morning by the protests, if you haven't seen. It's on his twitter. He says "it's not fair". lol.

I hope there will be people available to him who can exercise some control, so that he doesn't go off on petty yet potentially harmful vendettas.

I personally fear we have elected lil Kim.

My father used to be like that. He was the perfect gentlemen that all the ladies loved, until someone said something he didn't like and then all hell broke loose. He also had a penchant for blaming everyone else for his mistakes and playing victim when called out on it.

Another thing my father would do is believe everything he said BECAUSE he said it. He would literally think something, then automatically believe it to be true BECAUSE he thought it. Like some sort of God complex or something.

Trump reminds me of him. Quite a bit actually. There is one other historical figure that always reminded me of my father too in many ways - King Henry VIII the Tyrant.

Thank you for the thread, Kryties. I'm not posting as much as before, and it might become less and less, depending on the environment here. I'm one of the "I miss my old friends on ATS", and the old environment. With this group of people, I find I don't fit in here anymore.

Anyhoo, I hope the decision to put him in the WH won't negatively effect the rest of the globe. We've made our bed and we must accept it, but I don't want to see countries like Australia damaged in anyway. Maybe most of the turmoil will stay internal.

Meh.

I'm so used to seeing the word "liberal" being used as a swear word on ATS, it doesn't even phase me anymore.

Same with "socialist", "progressive", "snowflake", "safe-space", and so on.

In one ear and out the other.

*yawns loudly*




It's just certain types of people doing what they do best... hate, taunt, divide.

The rest of us folks who have the capability to just shake off the drama-infested fleas like an insignificant pesky little head cold simply carry on merrily going about our lives, minding our own business, and not giving a damn about other people's ideologies and political divisiveness because it doesn't actually impact our own personal lives in any way worth noting.

"Don't sweat the small stuff" as my grandpappy always said.

Hateful, ugly people live in Canada too.

It's just not as much of a dominating factor here like it is where you are maybe ?

My pleasure. I felt it necessary to try and be a voice of reason and attempt to try and calm the place down a bit. I actually think I succeeded in this thread at least!

Don't worry. ATS will return to the old environment with some new conspiracies to keep us all going until the next debacle lol. That's what I love about this place, it always bounces back. Many of the old crew are still here, they've just gone into hiding until the election, and its ramifications, are over.

Our Govt and media down here are turning circles trying to figure out what a Trump presidency means for us. Nobody seems to know if it's going to be a good or a bad thing for Australia and the world at large.

Yep. I think the country has proven it is indeed "a dominating force".

I didn't know. It's caught me off-guard, and I'm a still a little flabbergasted, but I'll come around. Maybe he's all bluster and he won't be as destructive as he could be. He is a dishonest person, he has proven that time and time again, so there is no gage really, as to what he might do. Certainly can't go by past campaign promises.

Popcorn.

Peace out.

It's perfectly understandable why so many of you are pulling your hair out by the roots right now... all this hateful division stuff is plastered all over your televisions and newspapers, it's even spread itself out into your everyday lives going to the store, at work, at school, etc.

Just keep reminding yourself that the heat of the moment will eventually subside to some degree, and most people will go back to being comfortably numb distracting themselves with other things.

You know, nobody has actually bothered to ask me whether I have an understanding of why people voted for Trump. I absolutely do understand the motivations behind it - to 'stick it to the man', to put a wedge into the "status quo" and to wrest back control of your government from the 'elites'. Not only do I understand this, but I absolutely support that! I just do not believe that Trump is the man to do that. I think he will create more problems than he solves.

I could be wrong about this, and I hope for the sake of not only America, but the world, that I am wrong. I just have a terrible feeling I am not - and that the 'people' won't have another chance to affect real change.


I agree. We do understand why - we just don't agree on the character of the man or on his understanding of what a President can and can't do. I wonder if he's gotten his Twitter account back.

Normally I would agree but there is something different this time around. I don't think this is going to fade away as quickly as we might hope.

He's been tweeting like crazy the last few hours from what I'm hearing. Clearly he stole his Nokia 5110 back lol.

You deny then, that people have been attacked by Trump supporters?

You deny that racist waffle has been daubed on walls and public buildings, businesses and residences in the last couple of days? You deny that people have been hounding Hillary supporters in an effort to drive them to suicide, that terminology like "Fire up the ovens" is being used to encapsulate the feelings of certain sectors of the Trump support network?

Well deny it all you like. It is happening, and the fact that it is possible for it to happen at all, means that something is clearly very wrong with the people doing and posting these things.


Some of that will always happen. There are small minded people everywhere.
The biggest problem right now, though, seems to be with people rioting because things did not go their way.

I did not want the awful harpy to win either! How many more times must I say it? They were both thugs, scum, unfit to lick the muck off the boots of the least of the people of the United States. But the thing is, she will not be going to the White House. It is IMPOSSIBLE to accept the idea that a man whose voter base includes racist, white supremacist activists, is about to take office as President of the US in a few months. America will never be called part of the Free World again. It will be called the FUSA, the Fascist United States of America instead, and as long as your president has or desires the backing of racists, that will remain the case!

You know how Presidents of that country know they are doing their jobs right? When the White Power nutters hate the president more than they hate anyone else. Trump is not that guy.


Do you realize that the Democratic Party founded the KKK? I'm not sure what this has to do with Trump.

Well I have to admit, part of me thinks this will all fade away soon enough and part of me thinks this will fester and grow into Civil War 2.0

But for now, I have to cling onto the optimistic side of myself until it proves otherwise.

That's my fear. I have a sense of foreboding about this that I've never had before.

For some reason Monty Pythons "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" just popped into my head.

We could all probably use a bit of Monty Python right now.
