Looking at the shape he's in, how bad he looked at some of the debates, and the hours and stress of the job, I'm thinking heart attack before the third year.
post #152 of 40383

Does he even make it to inauguration day?  He's 70, eats mostly fast food, and looks absolutely terrified and like crap in every post election photo I've seen.  I had a family friend, younger and in far better shape than him just suddenly drop dead from a heart attack the other day.

If I hadn't previously warned against having loose words about this stuff, I would just ask you guys to say what you *really* mean.

It would be interesting to find out the real state of his health and not that absurd one that was released by his Dr Feelgood.

 

I believe a real blood test would turn up some interesting results.

Trump supporters shouted slurs at a gay man from Canada who was in a Santa Monica, CA bar Tuesday night watching Trump win the Presidential election, and upon leaving the bar, the man says, these supporters attacked him.

Calgary filmmaker Chris Ball said that he was watching the election results when supporters of the Republican candidate began to lob epithets.  ‘We got a new president you fucking faggots,” they said, Ball told Metro Calgary.

When Ball left the bar alone later in the night, Trump supporters followed him to an alley way and assaulted him, Ball said. The last thing he remembers before awaking bloody on the pavement was having a beer bottle smashed over his head. Friends took him to the hospital.

 

I'm buying stock in Smith&Wesson and Kimber, soon as I can.  I think a lot of Americans who aren't pink and Republican will be going shopping soon.

I got a .22 rifle for Christmas when I was 13. I'm a good shot. Never hunted an animal in my life, but I like guns and shooting paper plate targets and expired light bulbs.

 

I may buy a shotgun now.

Shotguns are overrated.  People love to recommend shotguns.  There's a reason why military and police don't use them. 

 

I'm not a big fan of AR/5.56 platforms, either.  Get yourself a Saiga 7.62x39.  Looks like a hunting rifle, but basically an AK-47's guts.

This kind of sounds a lot like the stuff Republicans were saying when Obama won the election in 2007.

My comments have nothing to do with the election.  Frankly, if Clinton had won, it might have been more of a reason as she gave every indication that she would prefer to ignore the second amendment exists.  

post #163 of 40383

That's complete nonsense.  

 

She gave every indication that she would prefer to have sensible regulations.  In the 2007 primaries, she used the 2nd Amendment to run slightly to Obama's right on gun issues.  She's pragmatic enough to understand that any sweeping gun regulations would not fly with the public, except for regulations like background checks that enjoy majority support.

In other news, it's dawning on Trump that being president involves, y'know, actual governing.  God save us all.

 

post #166 of 40383

I love my win 32 special, but the ammo is costly and hard to find. ARs are target shooting guns. shotguns are good for home defense because of bird shot or even rock salt  if you want to kill a man get a deer rifle.

“The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.”

PRIVATE EVENT IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 2015

She is, of course, referring to Heller.  The landmark decision affirming that the 2nd amendment (like just about every other amendment in the bill of rights) applied to individuals.  If you believe that Heller is wrong, which she does, you basically have knocked the stool out from under the Second Amendment.  It's also worth noting that her rhetoric cooled over the years as she realized that this was an issue that would energize certain chunks of the populace.  Who knows what she would have really done.  

 

But, hey, it's all academic now, as Trump curb-stomped her.

There would be zero contemplation and discussion of gun purchasing if Clinton won the election.

This is a very liberal, open minded board. It's what I like about it. There would be a celebration thread if the results were different.

Not at all.  In 2007, right-wingers were making things up about Obama gearing up to take their toys away; basically, the right-wing garbage Limbaugh et al spew that has no basis in fact.  I'm talking about the vast number of violent assaults and other crimes actually committed against people who aren't pink and republican over the past couple of days.  You did click on that link, yes?  You did see how some poor guy who isn't even American was just about killed by a couple republicans in liberal, enlightened California for no reason at all, yes?  That's not an isolated incident.

That's mentally deficient.

 

Clinton won the popular vote. Drumpf got 28% of eligible voters.

 

Further, Congress is responsible for passing laws, so "Hilary would've taken our guns!" is just as ridiculously stupid as, "Obama's gonna take our guns!" was.

 

I don't care if we just voted for ignorance, I'm still going to reject it.

I've been lurking the right-wing boards for a couple of years.  There would be - and was - plenty of talk about gun purchasing on those boards had Sec'y Clinton won, for the purposes of what boils down to domestic terrorism, a.k.a. 'taking our country back'.  I was planning to buy stock to capitalize on that.  Even if it never happened, I'd bet those drumpfs would have still stocked up on gunnie-wunnies so they feel better about losing.  But after the past couple of days, I think it would be prudent for anyone who isn't pink and republican to arm themselves against those who are.  No joke.

He's mentally ill right? I know we say people are crazy casually, but something's really going on with this guy.

Was reading a Catholic article on the election, writer was trying to be a bit hopeful ... but in an indirect way compared Trump with St. Paul & the early Christians having to survive under Nero & Caligula. Starting to believe that's our actual situation here.

Trump Picks Top Climate Skeptic to Lead EPA Transition

 

Donald Trump has selected one of the best-known climate skeptics to lead his U.S. EPA transition team, according to two sources close to the campaign.

 

Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, is spearheading Trump’s transition plans for EPA, the sources said.

 

The Trump team has also lined up leaders for its Energy Department and Interior Department teams. Republican energy lobbyist Mike McKenna is heading the DOE team; former Interior

 

Department solicitor David Bernhardt is leading the effort for that agency, according to sources close to the campaign.

 

Ebell is a well-known and polarizing figure in the energy and environment realm. His participation in the EPA transition signals that the Trump team is looking to drastically reshape the climate policies the agency has pursued under the Obama administration. Ebell’s role is likely to infuriate environmentalists and Democrats but buoy critics of Obama’s climate rules.

Christ.

 

Of all the terrible things to emerge from a Trump presidency, inaction on climate change will have consequences for generations to come. The Obama administration made extraordinary progress on sustaining a sense of urgency over the issue and translating it into specific country-by-country commitments. I dread seeing what a Trump administration will do with the Clean Power Plan, Paris agreement, and other international frameworks to reduce emissions. What we have done so far isn't nearly enough to meet the scale of the threat.


Of course, countries like India and China will continue to have incentives to reduce their emissions and make their urban areas more livable, and the trend toward more cost-competitive renewables will likely hold steady, but US global leadership on climate change has taken a serious hit. Mitigating the dangers of a Trump presidency must now be done through supporting state efforts and preparing for the midterm elections, where many environmentally friendly incumbents will be on the defensive.

Personally I don't think that rock n roll is the best way to learn about politics. I think the best way to become informed is by reading the newspapers, books and magazines. I'm a fan of Rolling Stone because of the social and political articles. That said a Trump Presidency could change my mind.

I got more interested in politics because of bands like The Clash, Crass, DOA, Dead Kennedys, etc. and later with BDP, Public Enemy, NWA, Paris...those are the ones that come immediately to mind.

 

Back in the 80's one of my best friends was lead singer in a local punk band. They were quite political compared to the other local bands.

 

Music is a wonderful way to get new generations interested in social issues, politics and the political process. 

 

By any means necessary...

Good god, he's already started tweeting stupid shit. We are TWO DAYS in.

I don't get this mandate talk from Ryan. If Trump had won the popular vote...ok...I'd buy the arguement.

Am I the only one that thinks he's not just going to be a rubber stamp for Ryan/McConnell/Pence. Sure on some stuff like the ACA he will. But once they start trying to tell him what to sign...dictating to him. That ego will kick in. Not to mention the fear of being a single term President. A "loser" like Bush 41 or Carter. I think he's gonna be a bigger headache for the GOP than people realize.

Now you can add Denver to the protest cities. A big one is disrupting traffic leaving the Denver Nuggets game.

So I'm not sure who is looking over the polling data, but it seems to suggest that the "white rage" theory is incorrect or incomplete. White voters went for Trump about as strongly as they did for Romney. Clinton's problem seems to have been with voters from Obama's coalition not turning out. Was this fatigue? Overconfidence? Anger at the DNC? Or none of the above?

More data may suggest that Trump inspired stronger white turnout among certain demographics to the extent that it made a difference, but it seems the greater issue was with depressed turnout among the Democratic coalition - or that coalition voting elsewhere.

I just had a thought that maybe the Republican congress will just turn around and impeach him on day one. They just need him to get sworn in so that Pence can move up, instead of invalidating his candidacy before the Electoral College votes are in, which would give Clinton the presidency.

 

Not that Pence is an improvement. Trump is a dangerous sociopath, but Pence is actually evil. And I don't mean that hyperbolically. Gay conversion 'therapy' kills, and he clearly thinks that women are brood mares whose only purpose is to bear children, and that they need to be punished for failing to do so.

Yeah, Farage has already made a joke about stopping Trump from sexually abusing our female Prime Minister. What a guy.

post #196 of 40383

Pfff... a few of the more fuddy duddy papers still talk up the 'special relationship', but politically it's bollocks. Cameron was openly scorned by both Obama and Clinton, and the only thing the special relationship seems to mean is that America gets to have a bit more legitimacy in any battlezone by throwing some of our soldiers into the meat grinder as well. The fact that there have been a few key figures in parliament who have been openly hostile to Trump will be awkward, but I'm not convinced there is much of note here either way, advantage or disadvantage.

post #197 of 40383

I read that some MPs are already outraged that Trump called the Prime Minister after nine other world leaders. At least he didn't call Vlad before her, I guess.

"Elevating Racists" seems to be the theme.

Had a long conversation with my father, and of the many realizations/conclusions we arrived at, here are a few:

1. Every Muslim American should avail themselves of the 2nd Amendment to protect themselves and their families. Immediately.

2. When Mosques are required to produce attendance lists is the line in the sand where we break family bonds. We're holding our fire now, but the second civil liberties start to erode they get the choice of standing up to the Empire or not seeing my son ever again.

3. Having to publically speak out against tyranny is a lot harder when you have children you're trying to protect. The more engaged you are and the more visible you are, the greater the risk to your family.

4. New Zealand is where we're headed if my son's safety is in question. Short of that, I'm not ceding my country to these people.
