I bully retards on here every day, so I'm not about to denounce that.
So you're responsible for this spate of kids running up to people, innocent people in the street and playing complicated and atonal arrangements on guitars, saxes and other instruments! You bastard! How could you unleash such a plague on the world???

Agreed. I can never remember anyone ever saying they took their example from a pres, with the possible exception of JFK. Most everyone knows politicians are corrupt, amoral *******s, and this government, you know, it goes right up to the president!!

That doesn't happen. Everyone in America WANTS to be president some day, probably, but nobody wants to be like him. Or her. Or it. (Edited for when America elects an alien president, or a dog. Hey, there's a cat who's mayor already of some town...)

Kennedy was screwed when he refused to provide additional support during the Bay of Pigs operation (the CIA's brainchild) and ousted Dulles as a result of the fiasco. The CIA was also happy to work with the mob until Kennedy took an active role in hindering them. There is also the popular belief that the CIA may have baited Nixon into breaking into the Watergate after even they realized the futility of the Vietnam war and he refused to end it.

If Trump proves to be more than just a nuisance for them, expect reprisals - even if that reprisal is a fabricated report of Trump's collusion with Russia.
You mean Trump could be Fired??

I'm just baffled at how anyone can still defend him after the last month. Unless your sole reason for voting for him was to see the whole thing burn.

I'm slowly getting over the shock and disgust of the election results and am getting back to looking forward to watching America self-destruct.

I live in DC, so we feel obligated to live in a constant state of shock and disgust now. The inauguration is going to be such a **** show.

I think you're just describing the rest of the country.

I certainly hope so. Normalizing this ass hole would be the worst thing we could do.

Edit: Outside of electing him, of course. Oh well.

Same. I work in NW, live in NE. Considering staying with friends in Virginia next Thursday-Sat just to avoid the influx of pro-Trump die-hards and anti-Trump protesters.

But, I also kind of want to walk around and just people watch. Sadly, depressingly people watch.

Oh ****, you're from the VA area? One more person to badger into going to Maryland Deathfest whenever I get the money to go.

Yep, I plan on going to the inauguration to do just that. However you slice it, this will be a historic inauguration. I would feel weird living here and not witnessing it. Unfortunately, my wife - who is Filipino - feels too unsafe to go. Just shows you the world we are living in now.

Where in NE do you live, and do you like it? Don't want to derail anything, but the wife and I are considering looking for a place there. Brookland looks like its getting more stuff to do, but I haven't had a chance to check out the bar/restaurant scene there.
