The United States of America will now be called Trumpland (pronounced Trumplund).
Welcome to Trumpland:
• Where the President is a role model of how to deal with people. It is now O.K. to say what you really think about others by using insults, and slander.
• Where the First Lady is a foreigner and was a former stripper and posed in the nude with another women.
• Where Hilary Clinton will be jailed for no criminal acts in Benghazi and her email. She will then be put in front of firing squad.
• Where taxes will be lowered to zero for corporations and big moneyed interest and raised for the middle class.
• Where there is no balance of power in congress. Congress will be renamed the Monolith.
• Where the Supreme Court will favor ultra-conservatism, Citizens United will not be overturned.
• Where Obama Care will be dismantled and we will be subject to the whims of the insurance companies to raise premiums to never seen before levels.
• Where Social Security will be privatized and the uniformed will be subject to the corruption and scams of the brokers and financial advisors.
• Where the corporations will fight for lower labor costs by not bringing jobs back here.
• Where regulations will be removed that protect us from pollution, drug increases, financial corruption, and fraud.
• Where our military that is already the greatest in the world will even be made greater.
• Where the President will bomb the shit out of the mid-east in order to destroy ISIS without any regard for the deaths of innocent men, women, and children.
• Where a wall will be built and 12 million Mexicans will be deported.
• Where no one will be allowed to enter the country unless they can answer no to the following question: Are you a terrorists?
• It is now O.K. to be a racists, misogynists, homophobic, delusional sociopath.
• It is now O.K. to grab a women by her crotch, and kiss her without her consent, but it can only be done with beautiful women. It’s O.K to call others fat pigs.
• Abortions will not be allowed under any circumstances. All pregnancies will be full term. It is nobodies concern if the mother and/or the child have deficits.
• It’s now O.K. to form groups to pray away the effects of LGBT.
Trump voters own every bit of that and I will remind them of it every step of the way. This is what they wanted. They knew all of it and they voted it into office. Unf@ck!ngbelievable.
People, it was evident, and devastating, early on that the poll predictors got it all wrong. God allows these things for us to reflect on ourselves and evaluate our priorities. Black people gained most of their freedoms through fighting opposition.
As a Christian, I see that the struggle continues. I'm looking for guidance from the Holy Spirit to how to move forward with God's purpose for my life. In spite of all, what do I do. Revival starts from within.
The First Lady is a foreigner. So much for playing the xenophobe card. Hillary in front of a firingsquad? I imagine her pay to play people are gonna be upset. They gonna want a refund from the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea May Clampett Charity foundation. I hope they didnt already spend the money on weddings and JayZ concerts. They gonna have to decide whether they pay back Bruce Springsteen or the Saudis.
It's nice to have the results of the election explained to me by the people who wrongly predicted the outcome of the election.
Is there something in that list that is factually inaccurate? Something Donald didn't say he was going to do? Perhaps there is....
Aside from the foreigner First Lady's past career choices and choice of what to do with her own body (which is being not-so-subtly shamed by the OP), is there something in that list that has actually happened yet? Or am I to use a crystal ball to determine the list's accuracy?
No, of course not. Are you saying Donald lied about what he's going to do? Or, are you saying he can't do those things because he's incompetent? Or, is there some other reason he won't do what he said he is going to do?
Ah, I see what you mean.
I replied to you somewhere about pacing and leading. I think Trump intentionally went to the extreme solutions to appeal to people emotionally, to then use that appeal to lead people towards more reasonable solutions while still addressing their concerns. If that happens I wouldn't classify it as lying or incompetence.
Oh, so lying about what you really want to do in order to play with people's emotions to get them to agree to support what you actually want to do is not really lying.
Wow, I never knew that! Thanks for enlightening me.
And THAT was Trump and not Hilary huh ..........Yeeea .!
It appears to be politics. Hillary played that game quite well, herself.
If he still addresses their concerns using less-extreme approaches I wouldn't call it "playing with people's emotions." More like guiding their emotions to constructive solutions.
Or maybe he does exactly what he promised. I don't know. I don't have a crystal ball.
I'll wait and see what happens.
mrpopo: I left out one thing. He will have his tiny hands on the nuclear launch codes...God Help Us. You voted for him for anti-establishment. What you have is more establishment then we have had in a long time and it is all Republican. There is no balance of power remaining. Our democracy will be in shambles.
Oh my gosh you said tiny hands. Bet you'll be the first one audited, silenced and shipped to Alaska. If it's not too late delete that post. For God's sake man. They are already listening.
Trump is establishment? Are we talking about the guy who ran against the Democrats, the Republicans, Hollywood, the Media, Wall Street and the elites?
No, the new establishment is the monolithic GOP that now controls the house, the senate, and soon the Supreme Court. ahorseback, you will have no one else to blame because those nasty liberals won't be in control of anything, but your ultra conservative friends will control everything. It's just what the founders wanted, no balance of power, just like the Constitution does not state. Democracy and the republic is down the tubes. Welcome to Trumpland.
Lol. You own it. Relish your "victory" because you earned it with your vote.
This childish ignorance we are seeing on the forums today from the left is quite saddening.
Ignorance means lack of knowledge. Please show where anything I have stated here today demonstrates a lack of knowledge.
It means a little more than that. I use the term toward the liberals bemoaning their lot in life today in that they lack understanding. By choice, it appears to me, so I can't find much gumption to look for a sympathetic stance.
We, or at least I, am not bemoaning my lot. My sole mission in being here today is to make sure you know that we know exactly what you just voted for. There shall be no wiggling out of it, no blaming of the DNC or the Globalists or the Bernie Bros. Y'all voted for the man and his policies. Enjoy it. Rejoice. This is what you wanted. Be proud.
But that leftist attitude is true to form, The right sat on its hands for eight years while the left played political football with our future , political correctness and divisiveness working to globalize America ! Last night , good or bad , we took it all back. Some on the left are the lousiest winners ever because they accomplished nothing ! And the poorest losers now because of immaturity and petty childishness .
Really? It's childish to congratulate you on your vote and remind you exactly what you voted for?
Wow, who knew?
We are not children here. Your intent is clear.
I simply ask for the left to grow up.
I'm glad you encourage people to act with maturity and grace, regardless of their political persuasions. Especially people who really matter, like people on internet forums. It's extremely comforting to know your standards and expectations are so high.
I actually tried to find a picture of Hilary beside the veteran quadriplegic veterans that she has destroyed for years now . But , I couldn't find her near enough to one !
Yeah, because Hillary juxtaposed next to a veteran would be exactly the same. Yeah.
Hilary actually hides from the military ,I've heard. Especially the wounded .
I'd give it up. This childish whining by the left is getting on my nerves. Ignore it and, with luck, it will go away.
Cmon, you guys having been whining since 2009.
Really? I don't remember ever whining? About whom? Define you guys, that might help.
So, in all the time we have debating in this forum, you never had a disparaging word about the Obama Administration and your associating him with the 'welfare state'? I am hard pressed to provide individual examples , but you get the gist.
As for conservatives, all they have been doing is whining since Obama took office. When the left expresses concern about a Trump win and his platform and agenda it is whining. When mud was being thrown at Obama by the right, that was simply airing legitimate grievances?
I've never used the term welfare state. I have bemoaned the Obama care debacle but, honestly, I think Congress and trump should accept that the American people back a national health care system. They should scrap the sorry excuse for one that hasn't helped anyone I know of and work toward a fair and affordable system.
I am sincerely sorry that you are so bent out of joint. I hope you overcome it.
Nope. Not bent out of joint. Just holding you accountable for your choices. As I will for the next four years. Get used to it.
I would expect the same from you if Hillary were in office. It is what we should do as Americans, right? We are responsible for our actions.
You're entitled to think I'm being immature; I just hope you hold your president to the same high standards. Oh, wait, you've already demonstrated you don't.
Well, if you think my one vote made that much of a difference; OK. But, I will tell you I voted for him for specific reasons. I expect him to not disappoint me.
I did not hold Obama voters responsible for the disappointment. I didn't vote for the man but I honestly hoped he would be who I thought he was when he was running. I didn't vote for him because I knew it was too good to be true.
Your one vote, along with a bunch of other one votes, makes all the difference. Hillary won the popular vote, but lost the electoral college. She lost by very small margins in quite a few states.
I take responsibility for voting for Obama. He has not been perfect, but I am overall quite pleased with the job he has done. He accomplished some things he said he would; he tried and failed at others; and some things I'm pretty sure he just didn't do. Most of all, he represented us in an intelligent and respectful way around the world, even if some of his policies were not a success. I hope you can say the same at the end of four years of Trump.
Represented us well around the world? I'd have to disagree but if you simply mean he knows when to smile and or bow, I guess that's right.
Does anyone really expect the left to work with the right now ? After the last eight years of bully-ish whining about expanding every entitlement clause on the list of wants . Don't forget , they see the end of a free ride , that can't be easy !
It's the left who was blocked by every single thing President Obama tried to do to help and change our country for the better.
Trump received a telegram of congrats from Putin, his buddy, first thing. Be very scared.
However you look at it, this is a triumph for politicians who do not think the truth is important, who are happy to fire up the worst impulses of a population, exploit their worst fears and make promises that are undeliverable without dire consequences (trade wars, real wars and persecution of minorities on a grand scale which would require a fully developed police state).
Trump will become a model for politicians worldwide. Don't stick to the truth, tell people what they want to hear, stoke rage and attack anyone who cannot defend themselves...
The US has lost its moral authority and opened us to an era of demagogues and populists of the worse kind.
Glad to see a genuine conservative, Angela Merkel draw a line in the sand and declare that people of all kinds matter.
But that is not going to be enough.
While I think the implications of electing a man who spews offensive and inappropriate commentary on the regular are dangerous in themselves, I'm not sure how much of Trump's extreme intent will have legs to stand on.
Abortion, for example: is it really within his power to completely overturn current abortion laws and flip it to the extreme opposite? I am admittedly not super familiar with how American politics work in that sense but it seems like it would (or at least should) be highly difficult, time-consuming, and met with extreme opposition making meaningful attempts to kill it in its tracks. And don't get me wrong, it's still incredibly concerning that there are people who voted for him because they are in favour of this radical crap, but if he is incapable of actually putting it into action there is some solace in that.
I also take issue with bringing Melania into it. What she has done with her body should not be a hit against her or her husband (he does enough stupid sh*t on his own). Does posing in the nude make her less respectable? Why? It shouldn't. As someone (presumably) for women's rights and equality, I think you're being a bit hypocritical here.
I agree that we shouldn't care what Melania has done in the past as long a it isn't illegal or did not harm anyone. That said, I can guarantee you that evangelical Christians would be screaming at the top of the Jesus-lovin' lungs if Michelle had so much as looked at another woman. Heck, one of these Christians posted a photoshopped image of Hillary ogling another woman's breasts to savage Hillary on these forums. That same Christian believes Michelle Obama's used to be a man and thinks that's horrible. That same Christian is now singing the praises of an LGBT-lovin' Trump. Christians have been exposed for the hypocrites they are in their support for Trump.
I have usually found R's to be hypocrites. Obama's behavior had to be beyond reproach all the time, so did Michele's. I understand a lot of people don't like Hillary. But she never was charged with any of her supposed crimes or indicted for any of them.
Peaceful protests are going on in many blue states, not that it can change anything, it was a legal election and Trump won it, fair and square. But he's said he would use nukes, ban Muslims, will appoint all conservative judges to the Supreme Court, outlaw abortion and punish women for it. He has mocked the handicapped, bragged about grabbing and assaulting women and more. He is a pathological liar. I'm scared.
And although he wants to not let anyone else into the country illegally and send everyone back, his wife Melania worked in the US without being a citizen, and had to marry him to become one. She can't even speak fluent English.
Yes, but he will make America great again. How do we know? He told us!
Seriously, the man is a menace to our country. I have a feeling that he will be given a stern talking to by some powerful people. Trump is a coward at heart so I won't be surprised if he toes a certain line. He will still cause horrible damage to our country, though.. He and the Repubs get to pick the next member of the Supreme Court.
If Trump did nothing whatsoever at all , he would simply amount to a political balancing of what Obama has amounted to in eight years ,except for executive actions . I suggest a lot of people become accustomed to not getting every wish granted from government that they think they are entitled to . Especially young liberals .
This is life - grow a pair.
Oh, I don't doubt it. Doesn't mean anyone else has to sink to that level though, you know? I'd be defending her regardless of her political affiliation and I'd hope everyone else who values women and their freedom to make personal choices free from judgment would do the same. Unfortunately not everyone does, but that speaks to their character (or lack thereof).
I was honestly shocked at the results. At some point Hilary Clintons numbers where higher than Trumps.
What do I think of Trump as US president.
Like most of the rest of the world.
HUilllRALL BARFFFFF UARLLL ARGGGG hillbillies BARFFFF nic, red nic.
Sorry I should not do that in public especially in front of 100% Zionist.
Be careful Castle , your maturity is showing ,........Maybe that's why you are in the situation you are in now .
