I got nothin'
Clinton can't be blamed for the rise in rightwing populism across the entire planet. It's happening all over the place. Fear is a hot stock right now, and so is false euphoria. Bernie couldn't have beat it either.
And then there's the hacking and the general return of Jim Crowe. The electoral system is broken, so is labor, and so is capitalism. The majority of the the electoral votes that counted chose fear and and false nostalgia, and that's what we're going to get.
A bloody, decapitated, painful death, punctuated by ignorance, destruction, dynastic kleptocracy, and complete chaos.
There is no way out of this hole, save for the dissolution of the Union or a few angels in the wings. We cannot win Congress back, because the maps have been drawn against it. We can barely slice a majority out of the Senate, and even then, the "pendulum" will swing to the center, not the scary left, if it ever swings again.
There is one hope, and that is the underlying war between the telecom infrastructure and the content providers and distributors.
The former Trump needs to become Putin, the latter control the actual content of the news.
Trump (the alt right) is slow being censored from the main avenues of networking. The battle for seconds of exposure will be fierce. I imagine some people will be shot. Paranoia will continue to increase. It is doubtful Milo will live to see another decade, the precious lamb. Nothing good is going to happen.
Hahahaha, that was great, baleen. Have some coffee.

Baleen since you're around I need to ask you a question. A few years back you submitted some videos by a dad who had his sons playing instruments in front of screaming young girls who were most likely paid to be there. From wastching these clips I got the feeling the dad was either angling for some Olson twins success with his boys or just a rich dude indulging them for the hell of it (like Rebecca Black's Friday that went viral years ago)
Do you know whatever happened to the dad and his sons? They're probably in their mid to late teens by now and I've wondering if they're still alive or if the bloodline ended in murder/suicide because they failed to gain any fame whatsoever.
Pillager, on Election Day the decision-making power is in the hands of voters. Candidates can attempt to persuade, they can cajole, they can frighten, but ultimately it is up to voters to do their job.
This election, the choice was clear. Everyone with a brain tried to warn you that you need to vote for Hillary, if for no other reason than to stop Trump. That you were too dull to understand is on you.
Dull? We told you all she would lose. Why can't she finally take personal responsibility for running such a shitty campaign?
Is that Russel Crowe's uncle?
Tell you what: I'll concede Hillary ran a shitty campaign, if you concede that Bernie ran an even shittier candidate, in that he couldn't even beat Hillary, and Trump and the Republicans would have eaten him alive.
It's the candidate's job to appeal to voters and convince them that they deserve the vote. To say that voters OWE their vote to a candidate is shockingly undemocratic.

Next election we should just let candidates guess how many jellybeans are in a jar.

He's channeling Chauncey Gardiner.

Surprised that he didn't bring up his daughter's family.

Shit, did he have a minor stroke or something?
We're gonna stop every other thing that's going on.
And some things that aren't going on.
I talked to some very smart people and we're going to stop some terrible things. Very bad things. I can't mention specifics about them they're so horrible! But trust me, I have the best people working on stopping the bad things.
Listening to this shithead talk about the Two State Solution sounds like listening to some elementary school kid trying to improvise a history report on George Washington without even known anything about him.
Or who he was.
Or that he was our first President.
Or what a President is.
When I was in high school in a history class we had to do a presentation on a country. the class clown chose Turkey, but he forgot to actually research and write his report, so he just drew a blob labeled 'Turkey' on a sheet of lined notebook paper and made up a bunch of stuff off the top of his head until the teacher, disgusted, told him to shut up and sit down. That's sort of what listening to Trump is like.
No, his answer didn't surprise me, and that's the problem.
I like how he randomly evokes "I WON BY A LANDSLIDE!" at the start of responses to completely unrelated questions the same way George W Bush did with "SEPTEMBER 11TH!" to questions he didn't really have a non-bullshit answer for.
Not according to a large percentage of trump voters
OTOH who could forget the Bowling Green Massacre #mandelaeffect AND POST!
God, whats next for President Awesome? Maybe print up some money for himself?
You think congress will care about the fiscal cliff?? You're funny...
"Prevalent anti-Semitism is one of the reasons I won this election."
Yup, that's about the worst answer possible. But let's wait and see if he follows through on his promise to "stop all the things."
He is completely incapable of recognizing that just because something benefits him personally, it might nevertheless be morally and ethically wrong. He's 70 years old, we can't make him learn this totally mundane ethical reality that most people learn at a tenth his age.
