LGBT + Whatever Other Letters We Are Adding This Week are all mad because of Pence and his efforts to protect religious liberties.

If gay people have the right to live being gay, well religious folks also have the right to live according to their faith.

Personally, I am starting to suspect that the far left knows deep inside that they haven't been very nice to their political opponents for the past 8 years and they are now afraid that what goes around comes around.



ah, as usual, you are behind the curve. The 'Trump' voters tried to take over, and their 538 foot-soldiers allowed the coup.
You all homophobes and xenophobes and prisonplanetpuppets haven't the slightest morals at all.



It's really appalling.
Your boy is there.
So ---- done deal.Right?

No. Now the entire world is like......NOPE.

You know, and I'm not saying there should be any retribution for it. However, we should be absolutely firm in the face of the ongoing tantrum.

They're not in power anymore and it's not their place to make demands.

They can make suggestions, and if they're reasonable ones, they do deserve to be heard and considered. There is always room for ideas, but outright demands? No.

I'm pretty sure our Narcissist Cheeto Monster also thought it was exclusively about him.


Then why march now? Why not march during Obama's 8 years when all of this was not being looked at or worked on to change? If you peel that onion back it boils down to the left not getting their first Mdam President....

And as usual, you seem to be frothing at the mouth and I have really no idea what you are trying to say.

Oh, other than not missing a chance to call me all the usual nasty names.

Personally, I was touched to tears.

In my own lifetime, I have never seen such a show of solidarity in my own country.

Before I came to France, I had no notion of this sort of "rassemblement". I was only familiar with the idea of a protest or strike which has the goal of forcing a very specific and immediate goal.

I learned there are actions of this sort which are instead meant to create bonds of soldarity.
They've been long discouraged in our country with a focus upon individuality, and teaching us from our earliest years to consider "group think" as a necessarily "bad" thing. Coining terms such as "herd mentality" and such, teaching us, "if you ever follow a crowd, you'll end up jumping off a cliff."

As an adult, it became clear to me that this might have been a tactic chosen during the Cold War, to make sure nobody would get infected by communism, but at this point, it simply has made us easy to conquer and to control by our own PTB. A house divided, paradoxially herded like a bunch of sheep (in conflict with each other).

There is a politic used in some business here in France, in which conflict and lack of cooperation between the employees is encouraged and provoked. Then the superior suggests in private with each one that they have a special relationship of trust and appreciation. That gets them acting more independantly, but also being quick to "tell on" each other. Most of all, it keeps them from forming any collective effort to oppose the adminstration. It keeps them away from the syndicates. It keeps them obedient and always sure their loyalty to the boss will be rewarded eventually.

Problem is, every one is thinking this, and even when it has been eight years with no sign of a raise or promotion, they keep believing! I've worked in a place that used this policy, I have talked to a woman who was in a position of responsability in a company that employed this. It works for them. It creates awful conditions, but they stay, and they obey, for a very long time. The only set back is that hostility and internal conflicts between colleagues which are constant.

I realized this has been what we've been living through, as country, under the power ofbig corporations.
I was really touched to see we might just be breaking out of that yoke and daring to simply unite.

It was to deliver a clear message of concern to those that are taking 'what they think is their" power in Washington.

I can tell you one thing, women talk about their sexual partner to their friends a hell of a lot more than men do.

And yet, if everyone thinks alike, it stifles those who don't fit in by ostracizing them.

I would wager that a goodly number of those of us on this board don't fit in exactly wherever we are at. We aren't the perfect round pegs. We tend to be squarish, and you are endorsing a conformist mentality.

What's wrong with wanting to be yourself instead of thinking like part of a group first? In fact, part of the divisiveness in society is tribalism which is encouraged by groupthink.

I am a woman, so I should be woman first and myself last. I should think like "woman" first and dare to have my own thoughts last.

If I was that way, then I would indeed vote with my vagina every time those ridiculous ads go around at campaign time.

VOTE YOUR PRIVATE PARTS!

That concern is based on what? Everything they are protesting Trump about has either not been addressed in anyway by him to go against them or he agrees with them, so once again there are a lot of protests in the country and it started about 30 seconds after Trump hit 270. The left still can not understand how their little daring lost when all indicators have been saying for 2 years that she would win in a landslide. Even when the indicators started to swing, as in The Burn case, they quickly corrected it by subversion, because once again SHE would win no matter what....but she didn't and that is a hard thing to swallow.

Then you stand with what Donald Trump said in his Inaugural speech:


"Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people".



"What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. Jan. 20, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again".

I sure do and that message scares the hell out of Washington. Women can protest, great! What I see though in about 80% of the protesting is the left protesting only Trump...

I think I saw percentages of higher than 70% of protesters who didn't even vote in the first place.

I thought you would have realised by now. It doesn't actually matter what Donald Trump does or says. It only matters that he isn't who they wanted. They will ignore anything that goes against their narrative and make stuff up that fits it. Trying to point out his actual words just triggers some kind of neuron shutdown in their cognitive dissonance gland.
