Re: the Election. Gotta get this off my chest.

Topic: This business of a backlash against people upset by Trump's election-- called "whiners", "sore losers", "pussies" or worse, and the people who throw these labels around and claim that "life will go on as usual, so buck up, people" and so on, so forth, yada yada et cetera.

Here's the thing: NO, life will not go on as usual for some folks-- that is, if Mr. Trump follows through with some of his campaign statements and promises. People will be kicked out. And if early post-election incidents are any indication (really hope not), then the most racist "white power" elements of this society will view Trump's election as "validation" for their extremist beliefs, and will be emboldened to perpetrate their hatred to more aggressive and severe levels. Some folks may be okay with (or downplay) all of this, but really, a pretty large percentage of Americans find this to be a pretty damn disturbing trend.

I mean, yeah, protests went too far and verged on rioting in a few places; yeah, I get that. And yet, how many people bother to condemn the post-election hate crimes committed by Trump supporters? How many even acknowledge them?

I really don't think we can just gloss over this shit.

Of course! He stole the election. That makes more sense. That's both somewhat reassuring and almost completely horrifying.

The more I think about Trump card, the more I think that JFK was the last president to try to do things against the shadow gov. he even made a speech about secret societies. But Trump is no JFK. I think he speaks out of the side of his mouth. The American people wanted change with
Obomb-ya, did not get hope or change, with the Trump it's like going into a casino and thinking they are going to hit the jackpot because some guy in a grape suit and a carpet on his head told them so.

I'm still trying to piece it together-- the hacked votes and stolen election. Piece together the trend of the last 50-60ish years, the last 16 in particular (this is not the first stolen presidential election-- see the "hanging chads" in FLA 16 years ago). Part of me suspects that there really is/are "shadow government(s)," and/or some sort of overall corporate Cabal/Cartel that controls who gets to be the figurehead (and who's on the Supreme Court).

But even if start trying on those sort of "tin foil hats," it's puzzling why they'd go with Trump, if they could stay more in the mainstream GOP and pull the same fraudulent strings. Is Russia the only thing effectively standing between the CABAL's worldwide domination? If so, why would the Russians be so pleased that Trump "won?"

Don't know what to make of it.

On the face of it, none of it makes any sense, Trump is a show man, Hillary was a war monger, what happened to Democrats that were against war. Putin seems to be the only sane one, he is a martial artist, he knows how to move the chess pieces, and other countries are getting on his side. Trump speaks with a forked tongue so far, I don't even want to talk about what Hillary is. I just hope the evil cabal is on the run, And Trump will not just be another phony faced game show front man. The powers that be have had a lot of time to dumb down people, but this event in North Dakota illustrates that some people are waking up, the whole world is watching.

Adam Alter’s new book “Irresistible” points out — and to madden us, distract us, arouse us and deceive us. We primp and perform for them as for a lover; we surrender our privacy to their demands; we wait on tenterhooks for every “like.” The smartphone is in the saddle, and it rides mankind.

Which is why we need a social and political movement — digital temperance, if you will — to take back some control.

Trump got 64 percent of the college educated white ladies :P

This is not a good time to remember the good old days

when the corpocracy cracked down on progressives during the thirty year war during the first half of the last century. Actually if you considered our South East Asian War Games in Indo China we had another thirty year war in the second half of the last century. {well 27 years in south east asia] so we had 77 years of war in the 20th century and 23 years of peace if you don't count Korea. That leaves about 20 years if you dont count our wars in Granada, Panama, and Liechtenstein
