Did Trump Silence the World?
Many have become so quiet since The Trumpet blew...did he silent the world?
Ask the people in the cities that have to deal with the sore losers. It isn't quiet where they are rioting (protesting) and destroying property in some of the demonstrations.
They are doing what they would revile the opposite side for if tables were turned. A report on who incited the violence would be interesting. Using spoiled students who think temper tantrums are the answer to not getting their way is not new.
In New York when I live, there are protests in Columbus Circle. Yes, there is a miniscule Civil War going on. The extreme Liberals are discontented, even UNnerved.
The thing is, everything's been said and in the end the American people spoke about their dissatisfaction with what has happened in their country. They looked at Clinton's record and decided no more.
The people woke up to the fact that their voice counts. The people told the news media and those they support that they don't care what is spouted from their arrogant mouths. The President Elect offered to let people silence the world, as you put it, but the people did it.
Yes, the America people spoke & SOME people DON'T like this at all. Let them protest.
Just curious how many of the protesters actually voted or voted Independent
Protesting is one thing, rioting and destroying property is another. Disrupting others lives by blocking streets is not protesting either, that is interfering with others lives.
I live in a backwater town that was trying to hitch up their intellectual selves. A college in town. But we did not have riots. We had peace marches for equality and against a "war". These violent protests are never about a cause. Violence is such.
Media hype of violent protests is vile. Conservatives did not do this in the last elections, they went on with their lives. No liberal leadership is calling for an end to current violence (nor offering to pay damages), only encouraging false blame.
Our current president is ignoring it as he always has in the past, until someone else steps in.
Rather than answer your question I will only ask : Do we like living in a Democracy where we have the freedom to choose or not ? Regardless of whether one is happy with now President-elect Trump being chosen, he was and is now going to be our leader. Obviously what he said resounded with many. And many of the things he said, go on behind closed doors or in bar rooms or other places whether we want to admit it or not--sadly. Our job now is to pull up our BIG girl panties or boxers or whatever and get on with the business of bringing our country together. We live in a unique country...where we get to openly protest and scream and holler and rail against the government without fear of reprisal. We need to do everything we can to preserve our way of life. Changes will come as they must..and they won't make all of us happy...that is always the case. But Mr. Lincoln said it so well....'a house divided against itself cannot stand.' Beginning in our communities each one of us needs to reach out to the other and make a difference in some small way. Looking to the government to solve our problems will leave us without solutions. It is one person at a time that we do. Silence the world? Perhaps.

Look who is protesting the election results. Would the right do the same if Hillary had won?The answer is obviously NO. Now we see who are the real intolerant, the bigots and the deplorables...It is ironic how the left talks about inclusive except when they are doing the chosing...As a spectator of...

Is anyone else really really proud of our protesting country?Pride is not an emotion I thought would have been very prevelant for me after Trump took office; but I find myself impressed with protestors coming out every time Trump does something silly - which happens often, LoL! United we stand,...

Do you think that the Occupy Wall Street and other occupy movements were totally constructive or were totally an utter waste of time and energy?

First, I want to say that I totally support peaceful protests. I'm also sure that many of the Wall Street protesters have a clear purpose as to their reasons for protesting. It's obvious, however, that some are just there to be part of a protest, in general. I'm sure there are some like this in...
