It's akin to getting used to having your leg cut off.

I won't live to see it but 50 years from now history will begin to reveal we've lived through the greatest criminal acts ever perpetrated by cabals unchecked.

So...you're saying corruption will have reached its peak by then?

You & me both - and how many others are the same way? I was a news junkie but Nov 8 was the harshest cold turkey cure I've ever been forced to swallow. I wouldn't feel more strange than if on Nov 8 e & Pi had been found rational and every brick in the foundation of physics upturned. I still suspect chicanery in the election process somewhere.

I won't live to see it but 50 years from now history will begin to reveal we've lived through the greatest criminal acts ever perpetrated by cabals unchecked. That assumes mankind is still around 50 years from now, in healthy enough condition to care to research and record history. 50 years from now we may be back to hunter-gatherer status, a million or so survivors who would find it impossible to believe humanity could have been be so stupid as to carelessly destroy the apex of civilization. But it's what we do - this isn't the first time; but it may be close to the last time - the tools of real armageddon are too accessible to too many.

Well, I'd like to think that someone in the Defence Department will intervene if trump goes nuts and tries to push the proverbial red button.

It's hard to stand back and see what's happening objectively. It's very confusing.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Good point - modify the sentence to read greatest so far

It is telling when you long for even the "good old days" of Bush.

Earlier today walking by a TV I heard it saying... the president is going to do x, and it registered in my head as Obama

RE: I still can't get used to Trump being president
Yeah I can't get over it, either. Still feels like we're living in some kind of bizarro-America.

Rev and I went to GameStop earlier and the cashier we chatted with also had the "smh, how did it come to this" attitude about Drumpf. Undecided On the one hand, it made me hopeful like "Thank fuck there are some other sane Texans around here" but on the other, it was sad to feel the same way as that guy.

I don't think many of us on here can. Here's to hoping he can do something to get impeached (Soon).

I get to decide what my life looks like, not the other way around.

RE: I still can't get used to Trump being president
WTF, FiveThirtyEight still claims the guy's approval rating is sitting at 44.3%. I'm pretty much convinced that a lot of people are going to have to die before before that number starts to come down to a sane level.

RE: I still can't get used to Trump being president
First of all, fuck this guy and fuck politics.

Second of all, I used to wonder how the "world will end in 2021" and that question is looking answered, so there's that. Laugh out load
