You just proved my point Annee.


Yes it is.


AKA "I'm right - you're wrong"

A2D


I'm saying it from experience.

Have you been Republican for 40 years, then moved on? Or have you only been Republican?

Non-Republicans think differently. That's just the way it is.

Non-Republicans are the "Color outside the line" people. They tend to be open to ideas other then their own.

Republicans are "Color inside the lines" people - - - and do not accept those that don't.


Oh my gawd! Talk about stereotyping!! Annee, you're too much. You have been everything under the sun according to your posts (at least over the span of the 5 years I have been here.)


I'd be surprised if you offered an unbiased opinion.

i recently left ks

the Westborough people and the diests are no different than the radical muslims
both are free to excersize their religion in the usa but neither should hold ANY elected office if they cant separate church and state

trump is going to get all his cabinet positions as the dems are not in a position to stop them

the dems only have themselves to blame
bernie would have beaten trump but the dnc refused to allow a fair nom process

good luck with the protests/calls/letters/emails
use your 1st to the fullest
i dont think it will make a difference for the next 2 years
and if trump is remotely successfull things may not change then

Never a huge Reagan fan, but he talked of his and Tip O'Niel's friendship, they could argue politics all day long, at 5 pm the drinks came out, and they were friends, and enjoyed the time they had to spend together. I am not sure there is anybody in any party can do that today.


Jerry Brown Governor of CA - - said at the beginning of his political career - - you'd invite your opponent to dinner (or drinks) - - hash it out and come up with a compromise.

He says - - they won't even pick up a phone and talk to you today.


Compromise has become a 4-letter word in today's political environment, at almost 60 that is a scary situation.

There is no guarantee Bernie would have won.

I wouldn't have voted for him.

He's offering an unreality at this time. He waited too long.

The republicans have already quite a few that cannot or will not separate church and state. Trump's cabinet picks are a disaster, the repubs have had to break long standing rules to get some of them confirmed, the ethics lawsuits will be coming, I am sure.

I thought Bernie had some good ideas, but not a supporter. No one this cycle expressed any sort of common sense, the only one I could have actually voted for was Kassich, he actually came across as pretty reasonable.

I am a veteran, with training in chemical, nuclear, and biological warfare, my only prayer is to be taken out in the first wave.

Trump is and will be a disaster, JMHO

Quoted you, but a reply to many, apologies.

Annee, Shooter, Queen, Agree, and even Buzzy(while I understand, the meltdown was big), we may not 100% agree on every issue, but am betting the 6 of us could sit down and come up with some compromises. We can all get on here and raise hell anonymously, but together I think we could all accomplish more to overcome the issues that face our nation.

I am not you. I am not required to think like you. And I don't.

I don't accept that Bernie had any business running on the Dem ticket.

He's never been a Dem.

So, Hillary should step aside and let an Independent, who's always been an Independent, now compete with her as a Dem?

Why? It sucks. And I do not support it.

please point out where i posted that you had to

fair enough
when the dnc allowed him to was he entitled to a fair opportunity?

So, Hillary should step aside and let an Independent, who's always been an Independent, now compete with her as a Dem?

Why? It sucks. And I do not support it.

so you support what the dnc did to hold him back?
do you think bernies supporters stayed home on election day?
were they enough in swing states to have made a differance?

It's politics. He had no business on the Dem ticket.

You want predictions? For an event that's over?

I'm betting the vast majority of sane individuals could sit down and come to reasonable compromises... The problem is that congress seemingly removed that word from their vocabulary a long time ago.

I do convene semi-regularly with politicians and their ilk as I'm located mere minutes away from the capitol building here in WA, but it's mostly limited to state government... That being said, Republican influence, however moderate it may be, seems to do nothing here. This state is blue, and VERY blue...

I repaired and calibrated test equipment, AF 32470, Army 35 H, the job is not combat critical, I was cross trained in triage in CNB warfare, having seen what I have seen, don't want to be there. Had a couple of jobs outside of the military, on the chemical warfare thing, definitely do not want to revisit.

In all honesty if there is a CNB exchange, I hope the first wave takes me. Trump presents no level of trust in me, and yeah I do think it is that bad.

I hope he is successful as well, America prospers, but the bar is so low he will trip over it, and break a hip.

i wouldnt wish surviving a cnb on anyone
you are right about that, it is horrible

i worry about a limited terrorist cnb event,(one of the reasons i dont live in an urban environment) but i havent worried about a full scale exchange since i was a child(80's kid)


I hope he is successful as well, America prospers, but the bar is so low he will trip over it, and break a hip

that is funny

I removed the bottom of your post, as I am trying to get away from labels. I live in a fairly rural state, with 2 large metropolitan areas. The Republicans took the state, even though they effect my life more readily, they do no invoke the trepidation that Trump does.
