Trump is the catalyst for change insomuch that he's making everywhere aware of all the flaws in our system that he is taking advantage of and making hatred filled bigots show they're ugly faces by supporting him.

He's essentially a trickster archtype.

So all of a sudden, supporting President Trump now means: you’re a hatred-filled bigot

The millions of gays, blacks, latinos, women, native Americans, muslims, immigrants, trannies, Hindus, tall people, fat people, poor people, jobless, straight people, registered dEmocrats and anyone else who voted for him is just a hate-filled bigot now huh?

Laughable man

Either way, apples or pears, a douche-bag or a doo-doo sandwich.

What concerns me more is the amount of derangement people experience these days if they don't get their way.

Not my preferred outcome?
It's war man.

Let's hope not.

O god damn you people are naive.. trump has trippled the civilian death rate by drone strikes in the middle east. He then canceled the drone report which details civilian deaths.

You all bought Trump's propaganda... he just had to pretend to be anti establishment and you all drank the kool aid...

Good job!

Imagine Trump wins again (and I'm not convinced he will).

The looney left goes ballistic:

"And I thought we had de-platformed, censored and smitten down every one of the Trump-loving 'fascists'. So common who was it? Who did the dirty on us this time? And don't blame the Russians. I got my eye on all of you, and if I catch you doing ANYTHING Republican, we''ll all know who it was"!

Jeepers Nurse Ratched, aren't you taking this election a bit too seriously?

I think that the USA is a rich country. Every citizen should just get the best healthcare that can be provided. It's that simple. Doesn't really matter how they do it.

Said the socialist/communist who doesn't understand basic economics.

So, you're a Doctor. You spent 10+ years and gobs of money going to school to become one.

And you're ok with being told by big brother that you have to provide your services - your time, your expertise - to others, for free?

Son, there are a lot of countries that are happy to do that to you.


I don't mind if some people have guns, especially officers of the law or defense forces, or those that legitimately do it for sport or for hunting, if only we could ensure that 'the fruitcakes' among us don't shoot at others, or themselves.

Good thing you didn't get a say when our Constitution was penned...


but I think we should hold politicians to their promises and not grant them any leeway when they vacillate or just plain abandon what they promise.

Lol - we agree on something!

I think that all Politicians should be automatically considered to be under oath whenever they speak in public. I can see room for some kind of exceptions to this rule, but they would have to be clear cut, and it should be clear when they are exempt from being subject to perjury.

If you think the right is nothing but stupid rednecks as your post implies, you’re more ignorant than what I thought.

Hey, now! Let the "smart guy" underestimate us... it'll be fun! I promise.

After this nobody may do anything Republican, or - You're fired!

Let's see what the employees are up to.

Watching gay porn - fine, not too Republican.
Having a slow-boat with the gardeners - shows egalitarian spirit.
Knocking off an hour early to make happy hour round the corner - the company encourages physical activity.

As the HR manager, I think our business is doing fine.
We're 95.5 percent "Republican free".

I'm not a socialist or communist. I am a capitalist and quite centrist.

This is where you seem to have problems understanding economies.

There has to be incentive for health-care workers. In a capitalist economy this is done by paying the health-care system for its services. No-one would do all that for free, it is unsustainable.

So what you do is you pay those health-care workers out of a pool of public money set up for that specific purpose. If there isn't enough money there, you increase the size of the allocation because a rich country can afford such things and good heath-care should be a human right where it can be borne by the wealth of a country.

Like how Medicare and Medicaid work now in your country, but extended.


Son, there are a lot of countries that are happy to do that to you.

Yeah, to have written up 'all-time' rules for a country based upon a one-off militarist threat event, which no longer applies, was just a bad idea.

Americans are dying from firearm caused issues, and they think it changes their level of freedom somehow?

They're gonna release their souls, perhaps?

I have problems understanding economies?!? That is laughable, coming from someopne who doesn't understand that 'pools of public money' means money that was taken from me... my wife... my parents... my friends... etc...

So, instead of forcing a doctor to work for free, you stick a gun in my face, and the faces of all of my friends and family, and force us to pay them.

# you.

Tax - the mainstay of all governments since Ancient Egypt.

No-one needs to stick a gun in your face to get you to pay. You are already sufficiently compliant.

Wasnt he supposed to have drained the swamp already by now? It's been 4 years. When are you fools gonna figure out that there ALWAYS has to be a "problem" for Trump to "solve" because if waves his magic wand and fixes them all, you won't "need" him anymore. He'll never really truly try to fix anything because he needs the praise of his cult to survive. He's like a parent who cripples their child so they can't function in the real world so they have to become solely dependant on them instead. The parent has nothing without the child and is terrified to let them grow and leave the nest and after being psychology and emotionally sabotaged and crippled by the parent because of this fear, the child becomes helplessly dependant on them to the point they can't function in life without them. They both need each other to survive.

Yeah, I read that.

Trump has brought to the surface a lot of stuff. Like how real white supremacy still is in America.

More by incompetence and ego than anything else.

HOWEVER, anyone paying attention — learns from the fool.

Our future will be faced with an “Intelligent Trump” — more like Putin — who isn’t a fool.

The united states is not rich, there are people who live here that a either extremely or relatively rich, other than those folks everyone else lives within a micro climate economically that fluctuates in its stability much more rapidly then the guided finances of some trust fund baby. The only constant is the availability of the fast food around us. We search and shop and plan for the coming cycles, if we don't then we lose our place at our future. higher pay checks and comprehensive education will elevate us to more stable heights. The debt that exist is unfathomable and impossible to grasp realistically. its easy for anyone to say trillions, but the reality is sickening. When the structure finally crumbles under it weight, according the law of the civilized earth we owe other people more than we are worth and that's terrifying.

Well this happened under Trump (although, underneath the radar).

A tent used to be something you go camping with, in the woods, or the seaside.

Now people are living in them.
At every road and municipality.

Daddy what's a tent?
Hush now, people are living there.

I do have to say since California has been purging our homeless, all the adjacent states probably see a logical up tick of vagrants about.
