    Those darned political operatives will be the death of us yet unless the acronyms don't get us first.

    According to what is being said, the chica was 13 and was a girl. I bet none of this would have made the news if the deed had been done to a porcupine.

    Even Bill Mahr(sp?) has admitted he was decidedly wrong and stated what our job is now is to support the president. Whether you voted for him or not, if you live here he is your president. That doesn't mean you have to stand idly by while he runs rampant over civil rights, but let's wait until we see something like that before we light that fire.

    This is purely conjecture on my part, but I think if Hillary had won, the Fox News pundits (whichever would equate to Bill Mahr) would not go that far. At least judging by the way Obama was treated after being elected.

    I did see bits of SNL with Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle and thought they did a good job of poking fun, but saying we need to come together.

    I decree that elections will never take place in the United Federal Republic of Randy. Any attempts by any person or ape to facilitate such and election will be considered a threat to the fearless leader of the United Federal Republic of Randy and may result in one's pecker being shot off with a sling shot. We don't have guns here. Can't afford them if we did.

    But if we were to have an election, we would accept the will of the people who have that right to vote.

    See who was appointed as one his top advisors today? Steve Bannon, former CEO of breitbart.com. Next he will appoint Alex Jones (InfoWars.com) to be in charge of all conspiracies!

    I can really understand the frustration and anger that have led to America's new President elect. Problem is, I don't believe that you can "clean up the swamp" by releasing an extra crocodile.

    I appreciate that by the time the primaries were done and the candidates were running, in the time left available the only options for voters were; a) Vote for Trump and b) vote for Clinton; or to simply not vote at all. Maybe for 2020 you need to put your collective heads together and come up with a plan C. A new party that is unencumbered by the inevitable web of obligations to big money interests collected over decades and can field an honest candidate with a good set of policies and decent values. America is a great country full of good people and it deserve a heck of a lot better than Donald Trump.

    President elect Donald Trump announced today that as soon as he is able to shut down the NY Times and Time Magazine he will appoint Phineas Barnum VI as head of public relations. Barnum stated in a press conference early today that, "There's a shitload of suckers born every minute."

    Too many people that didn't (or couldn't) vote for Trump aren't even willing to give him a chance to either shine or go down in flames. Key words, "people that didn't or couldn't vote for Trump". How did a Hollywood actor go down in history as one of the most successful, constructive, and accomplished presidents in our history? A Hollywood actor....really? Really. Trump is an accomplished businessman. Anyone that is "accomplished" has pissed a lot of people off along the way. Trump has also provided a living for thousands of good people which no politician in recent history can claim. He will surround himself with good people because that's how he built his personal empire.

    You're right, there are a lot of good people that could lead America. The citizens, including me, chose Trump because they wanted change. To really understand America, one has to live here and know and understand America's rich history. Most Americans obviously don't even know the history of their country much less how the government is organized (civics 101). When Americans finally get pissed off, someone pays and someone different leads. It will be interesting to see the useless pundits unemployed or continuing on as unproductive people with pens and a mouth but with small brains. Off that soap box for now.....; )

    The pendulum theory was being talked about this morning on the radio as the reason for the election results. Thought that was pretty interesting.

    More interesting than that BLM protest by school this morning. :/

    Donald Trump won the election and the Hillary backers have no idea why? They personally have little or no contact with people that voted for Trump. The media people, people in academia and even most of your urban dwellers only dog paddle around in their own pool of like-minded friends. They do not understand the average American because they never talk to or hear from them. Conversely, the Trump voters know exactly who the Clinton voters are and what they stand for. The media and the entertainment industry makes sure of that by bombarding us daily with progressive stories and TV shows. But they know next to nothing about the Trump supporter except for a stereotypical caricature painted for us by the media. It might do those on the left some good to actually talk to the Wal-Mart shoppers, the people that live in manufactured housing and the people who do those jobs you find laughable instead of vilifying them or making fun of them.

    New York:

    Today Donald Trump's legal advisors the firm of Lets Hookem and Gougem have taken residence in "The New Whitehouse". It was also reported incorrectly that Trump Tower will be painted white. The Benjamin Moore paint store has still not been paid for the last paint job on the tower. Instead the entire building will be covered in gold leaf to be covered by a slight tax increase levied on US citizens over the age of 80. A Trump spokesman said today, "Get it while the gettings good all them old sumbitchs are croaking off fast."

    That would just not happen today. The chica would be pushing 40 and The Donald likes that young stuff.

    Thanks. Educated Americans think you need America. Had it not been for this country, you would be speaking Japanese right now and a lot of others would be speaking German. We lead from the front when things turn to shit while other countries either surrender or don't participate. As a taxpayer, that's getting old and some other countries either need to step up to the plate or learn a new language. Trump won because Americans rejected both Clinton and the radical "news media" propagandists, as well as corruption. Capitalism is what made this country rich and Obama rejects capitalism and look at the fucked up mess we have to clean up now. Whatever one thinks of Trump, he gets things done and knows more about money management than the rest of the world combined. Any other country that has a "leader" they would like to brag about, step up to the plate now. Drain the swamp. get off your ass and get to work so you can EARN something. End whining crybabies.

    Well. . .almost done. The Democrats are coming around. They know that they lost their base to Trump. They just can't figure out why focusing on non-problems like transgender men in the lady's restroom and global warming went over like a lead cloud in Middle America.

    As for a Trump court date for something that happened 22 years ago all I can say is "statute of limitations."

    "non-problems like... global warming"

    come on. i know it's not a great way to get voters but if you think it's not a problem, you're being willfully blind. there's a reason al gore named his documentary "an inconvenient truth." yeah it's inconvenient and you can choose to ignore it, but its also, you know, the TRUTH. and it's already becoming a big problem.

    Better said, the opposition is coming around and will grow. There are a shitload of them in both major parties.



    I asked at Wal*Mart if I could pee in the women's loo if I declared I was having gender identification issues. They said no. I guess I'll have to start hanging out in the mens loo with a camera getting a few shots of females having gender issues trying to pee in the urinals withoot making a mess of it. Surely Wal*Mart will accede to this journalistic effort since Wal*Mart is Middle America.

    Statute of limitations:

    If that is the extent of your knowledge on statutes of limitations in criminal matters maybe this will help. Besides, The Donald will still be able, at least for a few weeks or months, to make Presidential visits to the dressing rooms of various beauty pageants.

    The worst that could happen is that he will have to register as sex offender if convicted. That would be another presidential first.

    Not all crimes are governed by statutes of limitation. Murder, for example, has none. In some states sex offenses with minors, crimes of violence, kidnapping, arson, and forgery have no statutes of limitation.

    Really?
    So the 2nd world war started in 1939, yet you didn't "lead from the front" until December 1941.
