Well, if that's the case, you're only hope is to get a boat and live in the open sea. Because you're saying that democracy never works. Or do you offer a solution?

Yeah, and it's not that difficult a solution either. Stop with the ridiculous cash contributions for policy. Everyone's railing about the Supreme Court going republican, but it was the democratically led SCOTUS that did the utterly insane "Corporations can now bribe politicians directly" interpretation.

Stop lobbying. Stop bribes. Stop letting Comcast just give a senator 30K in "campaign contributions", and suddenly that Senator is voting that Comcast should be allowed to raise their fees by 17000 dollars a month, and now comcast subscriptions are mandatory for everyone living in their service area.

I mean, they're not even TRYING to hide it anymore.

There used to be a time when this shit was illegal, but not anymore. As long as this goes on, the entire concept of democracy is null and void. Maybe we can call it "Democracy for the Rich."



We don't always agree - but this couldn't be more true. I have been saying this for a long time.

Can't buy votes, yet not one lawmaker writes their own laws. It is all lobbyists BS - which is why it is all funny money law shit and special interests. Anyone that does any homework whats so ever whould be appalled by what goes into these "bills".

On the one hand, I feel bad for anyone who bought Trump's rhetoric. He intends to follow through on none of it. On the other hand, there has been immense dissatisfaction with the US political system, and it just manifested itself.

The people wanted someone who understands them and the world they have to live in. A man who knows poverty and unemployment first hand. A man of the middle. A man who is not driven by greed. A friendly neighborhood billionaire.
Hillary cannot admit her defeat in public? Wasn't that actually what Trump announced he would do?
Trump will fire lazy non-white US citizens (don't ask, he just WILL) and will outsource US citizenship to China just like he did with the jobs in his companies. See? Problems solved. Easy.

Not defending anything - but posts like this confuse me, as Dems have done this for years and then felt bad about it and included them by selling out and defunding our Social Security.

No one ever does what they say they will once they get into office. The political system is sooooo corrupt in the USA. We just had a president for a whole slew of years who never went BACK to Chicago, never spoke of the corruption there, never talked about or tried to solve anything related to the cess pool he came from, yet was grown and fostered in an environment where several major political players are now in jail. A place where everyone votes twice even the dead.

I hope this is the end of the 2 party system.

omg he did it!

Well, I hope he kills it. Coming from a State that picked Jesse the Body as our leader - we have seen some weird shit.

I think this is an indication of a rejection of Washington and their politics more than it is a vote for Trump. Will be a fun 4 years!

Somewhere along the way, and it is evident here as well, that if you oppose something/someone you hate them. We have lost the ability to be civil and live next to eachother....

I think most people would much rather return to the city-state and live somewhere that aligns with their views than constantly fight with the other half of people who don't.

Unfortunately it's not that easy. Here in TX we have suburbs that lean to the right (politically speaking) while the inner city leans left. It's not like these people are in a different state; they're literally right down the road from you, just in a different neighborhood.

Same thing in Minnesota.

Nothing to fear, the idiocy that was trump will fade away and normalcy will return.

You say it like we are "winning" something with her in office......Clinton is to be feared. We lost either way.

Happy B-day Gman. Getting ready to put one of our dogs down. The Dr gave us some time with meds, but probably will have to be soon. Has several growths in his belly, lost 20 pounds in a month, not eating, etc etc etc. Killing me. On prednazone and some other drugs to get him to eat and be comfy. We are told he isn't in pain, but he won't recover. fml.

The new Prius Prime. Plugin hybrid. You get a short range electric car and a really efficient gas car when you need to go further. You then have her ask her work about charging while there, if they do not already have it. And don't pay for any travel except long trips. Businesses get tons of tax breaks for having electric car charging stations. She gets to use the HOV lane there by her self, lower tolls where they apply, and no longer has to do the yearly inspection. Plus lots of tax credits when buying it. Probably about $4K federal and you may even qualify for upto $5K from state. And it isn't really all that expensive.

Until the batteries need maintenance. Plenty of studies that say the hybrids are worse for the environment than gas guzzlers.

V8 (Though I am slowly coming around to both of Ford's EcoBoost V6s)

The Ecoboost isn't as good as people tout it to be. It isn't all that fast and the gas mileage SUCKS! I am averaging 16 mpg.

(I own a 2013 Ford F150 Limited with Eco)

Happy Halloween everyone, please be careful if you are out driving, kids don't pay attention.

How To Order Your Drink From A Bartender.

ugh. In that picture, the Highball glass is not a highball glass, it is a collins glass. FAIL. (It COULD be a highball glass depending on the places other hardware, but then the picture of a collins glass is wrong.......) ((Annnnd reading his other posts he appears very clueless anyway...so there ya go - FYI calling someone a hipster after posting a thread like that, means you are a hipster.))

The pub I go to:
Beer, shot, or GTFO. And a shot is 4 oz., welcome to a drinking bar.
