Jesus, in NYC there was a "sticky note" wall on one subway station so alleged people could share their feelings.

It is embarrassing how spineless they are.


Oh, the "leftists are whiners" spin is ridiculous, especially from people who collapse into hysterics if you wish them "Happy Holidays," because **whaaaaa** you're taking the Christ out of Christmas and oppressing Christians and literally crucifying them. And don't even dare to ask them to press "1" for English, or heaven forbid burn a flag, or it'll be nonstop whining from Mike Rowe, in meme form, all over your social media for the next two months. Their God Emperor can't even handle watching Saturday Night Live without launching into a petulant tweet storm about how terrible that mean old Alec Baldwin is. It's pretty clear who the real snowflakes are.

So I'm fine with the protests. Those are fantastic. And the criticism of the Electoral College vs. popular vote, the gerrymandering, the FBI shenanigans regarding Clinton's emails, and voter suppression. Those are legitimate concerns.

What is not a legitimate concern is whether or not Trump is a Nazi, a fascist, or the AntiChrist. Sure, maybe he is - the trolls at Time magazine certainly had fun with the last one - but so far, there's no evidence. So please, try to hold off on going full Godwin, people. You sound like, well, like one of them.

But Trump does still come off as a pathological liar. He has lied throughout, from the beginning of his candidacy, all through the candidacy and now. He lies, some say pathologically. He lies all the time.... Everybody spins. Trump lies. Just, just, he can't control himself.

Politicians lying? NO! Are you sure about this? If you're right, you'd better contact the media and they'll be right on it. Obama was a vicious liar and look at how the media called him out. Oh yeah, never mind.

Trump chooses Oklahoma AG Scott Pruitt to head the EPA. He's sued them numerous times. Rumor mill is that he's been studying how the Apache scalped their enemies and Pruitt wants to make that a daily affair over there for morale. Our morale that is.

Hubba hubba.

He he. Trump is on a whole different golden tower level than Brobama's lies.

Scott Pruitt is the proverbial fox in the hen house.

I am OK with the article (even though it is pretty left wing socialist flaccid) if it was directed at ANY president and administration since G. Washington.

Doesn't this whole thing remind you of a Latin American election and transfer of power? The corrupt wife of a charismatic, impeached former President vs a celebrity "law and order" strongman who deliberately cultivates a cult of personality. A battle for influence between two factions of the secret police. Interference straight out of the Cold War playbook. Propaganda. Random popular rallies. The caudillo is elected and promptly stocks the cabinet with bankers, generals, and wealthy business partners.

The USA is living the Banana Republic election cliché. All we need now is a rash of disappeared journalists, a sexy scandal involving a soap opera actress, and billions of dollars transferred to offshore investment havens while favelas spring up around major cities. If that happens, can we officially consider the USA part of Latin America? Salsa overtook ketchup as our favorite condiment decades ago.

And the Repuglicains are the ones constantly complaining about the US turning into a third world nation.

I thought about urging you to stop it Flip Flop but the longer they believe they lost because of the Russians, the better. But they did just re-up pelosi so maybe they really don't have a clue.

Personally I think he's more Al Trump than El Trumpo. The gold-plated everything and ivy league MBA make it even more convincing.

I just hope he doesn't go full Hugo Chavez and start interrupting scheduled television programming with his bullshit.

Trump administration so far:

Betsy DeVos, who hates the public school system, has no education degree, no education experience, no teaching experience, never attended public school, and never had a kid in public school…will be Secretary of Education.

Ben Carson, who, contrary to Republican buzz, did NOT ever live in public housing, (and who explicitly told the world "I'm not qualified to run a federal agency"), will bring his conservative anti-welfare ideology to his position as…secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

Andrew Puzder, who opposes raising the minimum wage and wants to replace his employees with robots…will be Secretary of Labor.

Tom Price, the Georgia congressman who has fought to repeal the Affordable Care Act and believes we should defund Planned Parenthood…will be head of Health and Human Services.

Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, who was denied a judgeship because of his blatant racism…will be Attorney General. Liked the KKK until he heard they smoked pot.

Linda McMahon, of WWE fame, who has virtually monopolized the wrestling entertainment industry and treats her employees worse than dirt...will be in charge of the Small Business Administration.

Scott Pruitt, who blames the EPA for excessive protective regulations…will be head of the EPA.

And now Rick Perry, a tool of the oil inddustry who wants to scrap the Department of Energy, but couldn't remember it's name in debate…will be Secretary of Energy.

So clearly we have a president-elect who wants to enact the Heritage Foundations wish list. I say we cancel his presidency.

As the Left and Right duke it out to see who gets to skipper the shoal bound and debtberg gored USS Titanic Too, this tawdry little gem caught my eye….

….my sympathies to his wife, so far only guilty of poor mate selection. Whatever the Clinton Foundation is paying him will be appreciated by her divorce lawyers.

We are fortunate to have as entertainment two Deep State intelligence factions at each other's throats and dumping ALL the dirty laundry out in a humongous pile of shit stained silk. Time for some GMO free popcorn slathered with Kerrygold grassfed butter. Pass the sea salt, would you Vladimir?
