I'm very pleased there is still public outcry and that can still affect what is happening. It's a small glimmer of hope. I really thought republicans would start doing whatever they wanted, given that there has been this attitude of "we don't really want this stuff to happen, but it is, so oh well". Compare this to bipartisan outrage at things like the Watergate scandal - our blase reaction and inept path forward to recent issues (ie Russia cyberwarfare) that have arguably been worse than Watergate has been really disheartening. Clearly, Republicans are testing the waters of what they can get away with - we will lose a lot, but at least people are still paying attention.

Yeah I'm thinking this sets the pace for the next 2 years

Always remember the majority of Americans didn't want this

If we get loud they will back down

Trump will hate his new job

Trump has nothing to worry about, he just has to take the blame, and I don't think he gives a fuck about personal criticism. Just another scapegoat.

Especially in places like Ohio and Michigan, Democrats are just notoriously bad at branding themselves

99% vs. 1% is such a winning strategy on math alone if they'd just run with it

I'm not so sure about that. Of course a large portion of the 50% who live off of the other 50% are almost guaranteed to vote for immoral leftist policies.

And if anyone has had a branding issue (until Trump) it's been Republicans. Dems have always painted themselves as the party of the people, a kind of Robin' Hood.

Who the **** are you? And why do you subscribe to this pathetic tag line? I use to think you were cool.

Tired of the leftists are gods and righties are evil narrative, Goofle scoured the finest political minds of YouTube and found himself entirely on the other side and exactly as uninformed as before.

You guys aren't hard to annoy. Rather depressing.

Seriously, the first year I was here I thought he was dope. Now I just think he's a dope for swallowing all of the snake oil. He's worse than Tori Black and Jenna Haze combined as far as swallowing goes.

lol Chula is just proving the "leftist elitism" by defining Goofle by his political ideologies. seriously people, grow up. the fact that you'll actually change your opinion on someone over being a republican or a democrat is ridiculous.

DwnWthVwls 01-03-2017 06:10 PM

Pretty sure most people are worse than those two at swallowing things.
