Seems like a waste of time to me. Honestly, nobody on the other side cares about the issues being protested against. Especially the anti Trump protests. It will change nothing. It just looks like a temper tantrum. The republicans are still going to do everything on their agenda. Not one thing will change because of protests.

There are only two ways to change things.

1. Vote out the people you dislike.

2. Use force. And I don't mean throwing rocks or smashing the windows at Starbucks after you order your Venti Soy Latte and carrot sticks.

Don't worry your pretty little traitor-supporting helmet about it.

It isn't your time being wasted, after all. Chill out, maybe crack a history book.

Two thoughts flashed through my mind:

1) Let them eat cake.

2) An episode of Spitting Image...
Douglas Hurd puppet, screaming hysterically: "There's been a bomb in Oxford Street! There's been a bomb in Oxford Street!"
Margaret Thatcher puppet, angrily: "That's terrible! Who is responsible?"
Douglas Hurd puppet, coldly: "You are, you dumb bitch!"

Laugh out load

Crack a history book is right.

Indeed, because some party notion is what relies on notably fallacious ideas of logic.

What makes you so focused on in grouping and out grouping?

LOL... one of your Republican "legends" was Barry Goldwater—whose family, like the spineless Drumpf family—Anglicised their name from Goldwasser to avoid any perceived embarrassment. Anyway, Goldwater was made (in)famous for advocating to allow field commanders to use tactical nuclear weapons without presidential authorisation in Vietnam—which is one of the reasons he lost the 1964 Presidential race in a massive landslide, gaining only a laughable 52 electoral votes.

Disconcertingly, Drumpf reminds me all too much of Goldwasser. And like all Republicans—or conservatives—he seems to think you can solve issues by going to war.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Both parties are full of shit. Instead of vocing displeasure on Trump alone, show how tired you are of the two party system in general. If there never pops up another *sane* alternative to two corporate sponsored jebus machines you keep voting in, atleast you gotta force them to shape the hell up.

I was a participant today and it was pretty amazing. I need to up my protest sign game though. Some of the signs were very creative and FUNNY as hell.

I just got back from the Portland march. It was an amazing experience. There were around 70,000 to 100,000 people and it was pouring rain! It was hard to gauge because some of the protesters were on the other side of the Willamette River that runs through Portland. 100% peaceful! Great experience. My sign was dumb though. "TRUMP, SHOW US YOUR TAXES!"

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.
