Ah ok so all the really smart progressive people were out there protesting the idiots huh?

Lets take a look at just how smart some of these protesters are.

You know because men don't pay for razors, we get them for free from the government right?


How about this genius? She dreams that women should have the same rights as guns. I guess she would like them to have a 7 day waiting period after they are bought. Maybe they should have restrictions on how many words (bullets) they can hold. Also they should only be able to speak one word at a time (semi-automatic). Only people who are 18 should be able to buy a woman. Makes sense right? I mean these are your super smart people.


So far it's looking like a bunch of, what was the word you used......oh yes Idiocracy.

The tolerant left, tolerant to everyone except those that don't believe the same socialist BS that they do.


Please don't make me find signs made by little trumpets

(i like those signs btw)

How are progressives going to get this miserable group to accept certain progressive values without resorting to attacks on the miserable groups religion, political leanings, skin colour, orange Presidents with tiny penis's 'n bad hair or any other crap-o-deflection?

How?

Because so far those tactics aren't winning any converts to the cause, let me give you the tip.

Maybe try libertarian - maximum freedoms, minimum government, do as you would be done by and live and let live - and no harming other humans.

I am right, you are wrong decisions, have a way of standing you on your head, and can frequently come back to bite you. It is like traveling North or South. If you take the road North, you will eventually end up in the South. If you take the road South, you will eventually end up North.

If we are unmoving, stagnant, unchanging, in our decisions, it is like traveling East or West; it is never ending. The only way to change your direction is to turn around.

We can close the divide, but it will take one or both sides to move toward each other.

I am saying we are already united, the idiocracy can either open their minds and join us, or divide themselves out...forever.

Many husbands would jump at the chance to lock their wives in a child-proof cabinet, or trade them in for better wives, or collect multiple wives.

Conservatives think differently than Liberals. They have vastly different ideologies. Different goals, different key points. But none of that should be a catalyst for a divided America. We should all be hoping for the best outcome, working towards a better USA for all. But until the entire population lets go of their hurt feelings or arrogant egos, it will remain the same.

The right needs to stop gloating, stop antagonizing, and start being the quiet driving force that gets things done again.

The left needs to realize that Trump is president and will be for at least 4 years, realize they aren't superior to anyone else, and they need to realize we are all in this together.

We are not divided by republican and democrat, we are divided by morals and idiocracy. People like that are on both sides of the spectrum but they mostly vote republican. Don just happened to be their savior.

Most liberals I know have accepted Don (nothing else to do) and hope for the best.

It seems to me that he's rather effectively pointing out the stupidity of that sign.

Most liberals I see here have not. But looking for a way to degrade the right isn't a productive way of narrowing the divide, it's a fantastic way of keeping it strong and wide.

There is NO divide. We are VERY united. Read my OP, it degrades the idiocracy, not the right. If you feel degraded then...change

Nice! I guess by her logic, women wont be allowed in schools, so no more female teachers, no post offices so I guess she dreams of the day women cannot use the mail, no national cemeteries so where will we bury women?

But to the average brainwashed liberal in the protest it looked like a clever sign.

Isn't it obvious that the division is between the people who want an equal, progressive America and the idiocracy who does not?


"Equal" in and of itself is a neutral term... as is "progress." Equal what? Progressing to what?

For some of us, at least me, the only equality I want to see is equal freedom. I want gays to have the same rights to marry and benefit from marriage as heterosexuals... but I also want the baker and the dress designer to have the same freedom and right to say "no".

And the only "progress" I want to see is when everyone stops using color of law and the barrel of a gun to impose their will on others -- and hurt those who refuse to yield.

I appreciate your stance, however its conflicting.

To allow bakers to say "no" to gays is allowing unequal rights to the gay. Its the same as putting up a sign out front saying "no gays allowed".

Not sure. I think some places are, some aren't. Some people feel we are, some don't.

But....

I tell my friends, I'll do my damn best to vote in ways that will favor your protection and dignity in life. That's all I feel I can do when it comes to government issues, and as far as civilians, well if you're out with me and someone disrespects you or even attacks you, I will personally defend you. I will do my best to not let my friends down, male or female, no matter what ancestry they come from.

So I personally do my best to practice unity and education, but I do see division and fear in this country on different levels.

There IS division, but only from the loud mouth idiocracy. The rest is united. We can not walk backwards to unite with the idiocracy, we can only hope they wake up, smarten up, lighten up, open up and move forward. I do not have faith that will happen, but we cannot move backwards to unite with them, especially when they keep trotting backwards.

so, what`s wrong with being a divided country?

conservatives seem perfectly happy with being divided or separated from liberals, it`s the liberals that are having hard time with being divided from conservatives.

why do liberals try to make being divided sound like a bad thing?

America is the great melting pot of diversity we have never all agreed on the same things and never will.

trying to force everyone to accept the same way of thinking is an excercise in futility,it`s never going to happen.
