    It doesn't even matter that Bill Clinton said what he said in a deposition, and in a context where it was literally true and makes perfect sense, or that Hillary Clinton was always careful not to "blame" the embassy attack on the video. We live in a time when any smart phone user with any willingness to learn what was actually said can look it up on the computer in their pocket, get to the original source, and see for themselves. But there is a significant percentage, between a quarter and 40% of this country, that just refuses to do this. We could have the most informed electorate in history, and instead we get people crying about "Fake News". People believe what they want to believe, that's for sure.

    ďTogether weíre going to deliver real change that once again puts America first. That begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as Obamacare. My first day in office Iím going to ask Congress to put a bill on my desk getting rid of this disastrous law and replacing it with reforms that expand choice, freedom, affordability. Youíre going to have such great healthcare at a tiny fraction of the cost and itís going to be so easy

    Donald Trump, October 25, 2016



    Amazing apples them!! If I'm not mistaken, on his first day in office, he was butthurt about the size of his inaugural crowd and ordered Spicy to lie about it.

    And his party had a majority in the Senate and the House of Representatives too. But we never saw any plan.

    My problem with Trump isnít that he had affairs but that he is a rapist. Iím surprised more people donít have a problem with this or think it isnít true. If he were a normal citizen he would now be in jail forever. There are over 20 women declaring publically he forced himself on them without asking permission. Reporters have found an additional 20 + (for a total of over 40) that somewhere reported that Trump sexually assaulted them but arenít pressing charges. Trump is on video saying he took what he wanted without asking. His response to this problem when the damning video came out was to give a speech at Gettysburg saying all those women are lying. He claimed they were/are making those false accusations for personal gain. Sure Donald. His absolutely total denial means we have no choice but to either believe him or his accusers. I believe the women. And then he added the kind of threat that keeps rich people like him and Harvey Weinstein from being prosecuted for sexual assaults. He said Iím going to sue every one of them. No he wonít, that was an obvious lie. He was just making sure more victims didnít come forward and the ones that had stayed quiet. Those he assaulted clearly heard and understood his true message Ė that they will pay a huge financial and emotional price if they testify against him. Private investigators will find any sins in their past to smear their reputations so their testimony will be in doubt. Normal people canít afford enough legal representation to properly protect themselves from a team of lawyers working to destroy them. And even if they could they will probably lose anyway. Itís no wonder why sexually assaulted women donít want to come forward if the guy has money. This is how rich predators get a ďfair trialĒ while poor ones go to jail. And then their other trick is to pay off accusers and make them sign non-discloser agreements to get the money so their experiences remain hidden. It is truly a mystery to me why Americans are tolerant of a rapist.

    Anyone else sad and weary that we argue while those who actually sow the seeds of division go to the bank with it? I'm talking about those whose job it is to spread divisive talk and the corporations and entities behind them.

    Not going partisan here because there's plenty of blame to go around. This is been sort of the norm since the 1980s I think. It is not new, but it's getting stronger. We need to learn to think for ourselves rather than allow ourselves to be fed bad information by people who profit from division.

    Then GOP majority congress investigated multiple times with FULL cooperation of Obama administration. Hilary Clinton gave more than 8 hours committee testimony. Despite GOP majority in House and Senate - Nothing - Nothing - Nothing came of all this.

    Clinton was impeached - yeah?

    Obama has discussed this openly and in great detail over the years. Long and short is all subsequent efforts to improve ACA have been stymied by a GOP that prefers no public health care - and is even making plans to diminish Medicare and Medicaid if it can get the appropriate majorities.

    IMO - the whole both side-ism thing is part and parcel of the disinformation noise coming from the right.

    Partly, but I think many people choose to ignore the negativity coming from sources they agree with. And there are negative sources of disinformation on the left as well, though they are less obvious. A clear source is Huffpost, which is as comical at times as Fox or Rush Limbaugh.

    Exactly. And it's the only narrative the mainstream media seem able to deliver.

    I see him and this quotation from A Moveable Feast comes to mind:

    “I do not think I have ever seen a nastier-looking man... Under the black hat, when I had first seen them, the eyes had been those of an unsuccessful rapist."

    The Mango Mussolini Orange Shitstain:"You're going "have absolute guaranteed coverage. You're going to have it if you're a person going in…don't forget, this was not supposed to be the way insurance works. Insurance is, you're 20 years old, you just graduated from college, and you start paying $15 a month for the rest of your life and by the time you're 70, and you really need it, you're still paying the same amount and that's really insurance."

    This fucking grifter thought $15/month would be part of his big beautiful health care plan promised on day one.

    Any word yet from Beevis, or is it Butthead. Anything from Prince Jarhead? What about Princess Sparkle Pony(Who Daddy wants to fuck)? What about Squinty the Botox Prostitute Illegal alien? Nothing yet? Sad.

    If only this were true.

    (Unless their conscience is much, much darker than they are willing to admit even to themselves. There is a huge disconnect here that is deeply troubling.)

    I'm sure you know that the map you posted is highly misleading. But just to put it in perspective, this map is a much more accurate way to visualize that election. Counties are represented by graduated symbols proportional to their population.

    Our country does not mandate that Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York get to decide the leadership for everyone.

    The founders of our country recognized a pure Democracy was unsustainable and representation needed balance.

    You missed my point. Your map was misleading and I posted one that better represents the quantities of votes by area. The electoral college process is more closely related to population than land area. That's why california has 55 electoral votes and Montana has 3.

    I've already tried to explain this very point above, but didn't have any more success than you're having...
