He certainly doesn't care enough to stand in the way of the guys like Pence and the rest of the Religious Right/Moral Majority types who wish to reinstall elements of theocracy and control women's bodies... he obviously thinks he can personally control women's bodies, so, there's that.

But worse, whoever said he has no beliefs was dead wrong. Trump's religion is Capitalism. He's as hardline for the wealthy class's hyper-Capitalist outlook on things (which, unfortunately, they have sold wholesale to the working class ever since Reagan's "Trickle Down" bullshit) as any Communist to ever lead the USSR. He will put in Supreme Court Justices who will pass decisions, whenever corporate rights conflict with personal rights, that will take the outlook of Citizens United to new heights.

Congress, having done nothing for the past 8 years, is about to explode with a flurry of the legislation they've been promising their constituents, and many or most of them will set about trying to roll back the New Deal. Every environmental regulation, every law or executive order that allowed businesses to actually be held accountable for the damages they do, all of it... disemboweled in the course of a few months.

Trump will sign all of it. The Supreme Court will not even try to stop them.*

By the time the conservative working class Americans realize that this new reality is harming them, it will be far too late to do much about it. Environmental poison and collapse, resource scarcity conflicts, and America leaning ever more heavily on its massive military to intimidate the rest of the world when they object to our actions, it can get very nasty very quickly, in only a few years. The United States has ~5% of the world's population, yet consumes nearly a quarter of its resources.

We're either going to become a near-Third-World country, and our economy tank too hard for us to sustain our empire (while the corporate bosses just move their HQ and homes somewhere more comfortable, now that the USA is used up), or we're going to war with the world. I just don't see any way around this pattern.


* Edit to Add: And the congress will start pandering to the theocratic base, passing laws against all the social ills they perceive, which will make the Donald very popular when he does the photo-op, signing them. President "Grab Her by the Pussy" won't care even a little bit about the rights women lose, for which they have fought so hard for so long. We're going to see major steps toward theocratic America, even as we grow militant and more militarized. Digging bomb shelters might not be a bad idea.

Dead on.

Trump win disaster for Australian economy.

Ain't nothing drastic gonna happen just like nothing drastic happened with Obama.

My candidate lost too. Oh well. Life goes on. The amount of melodrama this produces is hilarious.

For those that are continuing to freak out.

Cucumber sandwiches are ah-mazing! No soggy-ness if you use the right kind of bread.

Darn Vegans.

It's not a vegan thing, the Brits have been eating them for centuries. I ate some when I when I went for tea at the Ritz. (True story). And they were delicious.

Looked it up. It looks like they put cream cheese between the bread and the cucumber as a sogginess blocker. Much like putting the tomato between the lettuce and the bacon on a BLT. Guess I could try a BLC. Smile

You can also toast the bread and throw some mayo on there (skip the cream cheese) and add a lil salt and pepper and it's instant yum Wink
