    If progressives are snowflakes, then what are conservatives? Hail? Frozen Sleet?

    So the derision of 'snowflake' is to mean delicate and easily destroyed then it's better to be a devastating blizzard? A Blizzard Warning is issued for sustained or gusty winds of 35 mph or more, and falling or blowing snow creating visibilities at or below ¼ mile; these conditions should persist at least 3 hours. Hmm. Sounds like a blow-hard who bellows with constant B.S. like the url breitbart.com - Funny tho' The Great Blizzard of 1888 was called White Hell.

    A heat wave to melt the snowflakes. The last 28 years sucked and that covers both parties. Now with Trump neither party is really in control. Trump is more like the Wig party (look it up, b4 you go ptosis)
    Continuing with the dems and repub is a recipe that puts out bad food.
    Give it a chance b4 u summarily dis it.

      Very apropos answer. :0  A blistering heat wave. Do Wigs believe there is no global warming? Do you mean the Whig Party of 1834–54?

      Yes that Wig party. Trump is not really GOP, and like the Wig party we could develop a third party that clips the ultra left and the ultra right. Since the dems & repubs have been around, nothing gets done because their ideology is so far apart

    I always laugh when they call liberals "snowflakes" as they tend to be some of the most easily wound-up people I've ever talked to.  Not to mention they elected a man with one of the most sensitive egos I've ever seen.  Seems a lot of them feel entitled to dish it out whenever they want but can't seem to take it when it turns back around on them.  It would be amusing if they weren't so clueless.

      Okay, to summarize:

      Conservatives are snowflakes, too. Perhaps even snowflakier than the liberals they accuse of being snowflakes.

      So liberals don't like being called names. But it is OK to call Trump a non legitimate pres. Clip the wings off of both parties, and America will do better. Right now I would call liberals domestic terrorists, and UnAmerica.as 4 Repubs need change.

      The labels are really interesting. Not so long ago you could use the N word and the queer word, and the bum word. Heck I was called an illegitimate bastard and a Kraut and Wapp. Sissy was normal. Jock was OK. Hippie was ok. Middle aged white male?

      Great choice, it made me laugh. Based on the hard fracture of the party and guys like the Bushes, Romney and McCain being irrelevant, it would simply be dinosaurs because they are extinct. Maybe with that hairdo - DT second coming of Wooly Mammoth.
