Do Trump supporters really expect Democrats to give the respect to Trump that they never gave to Obama?

    My Red Neck Neighbor who does electricity under the table and gets disability and pays no taxes has all the business he can handle since the election. The Red Necks are so excited. “Now that Obama is out and that b_____ lady didn’t win,” I have all sorts of business. I declined to mention the 120,000 new jobs from last month.
    I’ll sit back and watch it unfold.

    So the angry disenfranchised masses elected a billionaire who is now appointing other billionaires to fix the system that helped make them billionaires. Can Trump buyer’s remorse be far behind?

    The only thing missing from this emerging sur-reality show would be a daft half-term governor from Iceworld, whose favorite pastime is shooting wolves from helicopters, in charge of our neglected vets. Oh wait, this just in… http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-sarah-palin-trump-va-secretary-20161130-story.html

    Fun fact irony of the day: Hillary is threatened with prosecution and imprisonment for ALLEGEDLY emailing classified documents (and of course all of Benghazi), but Gen. Petraeus is cheered as a potential appointee for SOS (or whatever), and would have to report to his parole officer on his first day of work for his conviction (with no jail time) of voluntarily sharing classified secrets.

    General Maximus, anything to add? “Are you not entertained?”

    Yes, they do. And they do so without a trace of irony or a whiff of self-awareness that is required for them to considered sentient.

    GOPers are not into that whole “know thyself” trip. Ya dig?

    We’ll to be honest, the whole polarization in politics started with opposition to our first president when Jefferson hired his own reporters and started his own paper when the existing ones wouldn’t publish his opinions on how he thought things ought to be. So much did this distress Washington that he did not want a 2nd term, but was later persuaded.

    In more recent times with the advent of the internet and social media the masses who could not afford to start their own tv or print news outlet began to come out against Clinton(42) then the left piled on Bush, then the right jumped all over Obama, and there is no doubt that the left will gang tackle Trump.

    The biggest problem in today’s society is everyone is talking “at” the other guy not “with” them.

    I will be demanding my representatives in Congress and the other Democrats in Congress to make their NUMBER ONE priority to make Dishonest Trump a one-term (or less) president.

    JWHAT – who do think you are, Mitch McConnell in Democrat drag? 😉

    Good luck with that (really!), but as I linked to before on this blog, there may be a more practical, activist approach to preventing Herr Gropenfuhrer from goose stomping out many of the progressive accomplishments of the past eight years. Resistance is NOT futile.

    Thanks for the link. Since I’ve been retired for the last few years I’ve neglected donating to some of my favorite organizations. That will be my first step. I’ll be making frequent financial donations to Southern Poverty Law Center, Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Freedom from Religion and some others. These groups will be sorely tested for the next few years.

    But I’m 100% for scorched-earth resistance to what I see as heading down the path to fascism….not on my watch.
