Nonsense on two counts, but the whole point of apologia for immorality, such as that you support, is to deny morality.

Recommendations

Read Rawls

Visit Flo's Museum in London....next to the Thompson Hospital.

Do you define moral as universal and within all? As Emanuel Kant (I believe )?
Cheers.

These lies are getting old. This nonsense is designed to enrage the young minds who believe it.


Trump basically did about the same as Romney with whites.

The fact is; just as Obama could not have been elected without whites (twice), Trump couldn't have won without blacks, Hispanics/Latinos, and women. He more than doubled Romney in these demographics.

The reason HRC lost is because she was abandoned by the young vote. The 18-29 demographic didn't show up. The same kids who are now protesting, some violently, only have themselves to blame.



My take: People are disgusted with DC and the establishment, it has nothing to do with the spin you're pushing.

In bold above. This.

People are fed up with Government. They are fed up with the overreach, the massive amounts of regulation, the good old boys club, the same ol' same ol'.

They are fed up and have given notice.

How they are going about showing their displeasure ... that's another story.

Everyone who's "grieving" and going into histrionics over Trump winning needs to look back in history to when our nation was in it's infancy and see what was said about the newly elected presidents and what they did.
Filling up the administration using the Friends and Family plan etc.

Much of what's being said today was said back then. Just look at what was said about Lincoln as an example...

Would you like it better if we gave you a Participation Trophy?

Congratulations and I hope we see entitlement reform really soon so seniors can get a coupon toward the purchase of a policy they pay for based on their medical risk.

Why do all your posts mention "racists"....the only racists are those who call "others" racists...which would be you. It's tiring and irritating to read your victim mentality posts....

Hmmmm.......interesting since Trump, himself, was ranting against the Electoral College as recently as 2012.

Oh, the irony. The very thing he believes is a disaster elected him.

Quote:
"The electoral college is a disaster for democracy."
And, on that I agree with him. His election IS A DISASTER - GWBush disaster x 10. Ya'll don't know it yet. But, it's coming.

You can bet if he'd lost because of the Electoral College, he'd be telling all his followers to protest - JUST AS HE DID IN 2012, here:

Specifically, how??? What was done to these people to poison them?

How, exactly, does an undisciplined narcisistic disordered personality - witness, once again, the adolescent 'oh, woe is me, life's not fair" tantrum/tweet from last night:

http://www.city-data.com/forum/attac...eet-unfair.jpg

who is a sexual predator, liar and a thief make a "fine President."

Where is the ADULT in that tweet?? Where is the PRESIDENT in that tweet? We wouldn't put up with that kind of childish belly-aching from our own kids.

Generally, narcissistic disordered personalities get worse the more power they have.

Trump does NOT care about anyone in this country. Trump only cares about his own ego and his own interests. Period.
