    I have been thinking since all this nonsense rioting started. Since these brats do not understand that in this country we pride ourselves on a peaceful transfer of power, maybe we could consider exchanging them for people who want to come here from socialist countries. These people want and would welcome the freedom of a peaceful transfer and the brats would learn just what socialism is. we get better citizens and they get a real education.
    win – win

      The left is not done. They are pushing for a million people to show up for the inauguration.

      • mothy67 says:

        doubt it. They are worse than terrible twos. Come January they will not remember November.

      • lateblum says:

        So is this a dog whistle to people who can afford to go to DC, protest and disrupt the inauguration and get arrested? or just a “call to arms”?
        I wouldn’t be surprised if Soros, et. al. continue to fund the protests/demonstrations/riots. Or at the very least an organized demonstration in January. They’ve been protesting for years. ANSWER’s posters are ubiquitous at every protest. These riots are protests against the present revolution.
        Doesn’t Trump represent a revolution as well? Didn’t voters revolt against Soros and his compadres by kicking HRC to the proverbial curb – or hiking trail?

        • taw46 says:

          I am hoping that much of this will burn out by January. But the hardcore left and Soros, not so sure. Now that they are emerging from the shock, I see they are still trying to inflame the masses. I don’t think it is over. I hope once Trump takes office, some type of charges can be brought against Soros. But as someone pointed out on FOX, it will be hard to get to him as there are many layers between him and the organizations he funds.

          • lateblum says:

            I agree it will be hard to get to Soros. He knows just how to keep himself hidden in plain sight. It would be ever so much easier if bronco bama weren’t owned by Soros. Because then he could ask for calm during this transition. But he doesn’t because it isn’t in HIS best interest to have calm. I don’t think obama cares about this country. I think he cares about obama. I don’t even think he cares about his “legacy”. I think he cares about what is in it for him in the moment. So he won’t “try to stop” the rioting. He’ll continue to be the puppet that he’s been his entire life.

          • taw46 says:

            I agree with it all. As far as calling for the riots to stop, I put Hillary right there with Obama. If either one cared about our country and the peaceful transfer of power, they would speak out.

      Good Idea.

      The way some very mature ladies are behaving on my FB, I understand perfectly how these kids are behaving like they do.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I had a 45 single of the this song and I played it over and over again when I was very young. At the time my one brother was in Vietnam and another would be drafted and sent to Germany(not fit for combat).. It drove the younger of two of my older brothers crazy as they were determined to head to Canada if they were drafted. My father would just tell them to close their door. He understood even though there was a significant age gap my brothers being drafted hit much harder than their being in college. and for whatever reason the song always made me feel closer to them.

    Btw, you all, i can’t stand some of my beloved facebook friends right now because they keep posting some bs post about “we know you aren’t racist, etc… but we are going to be condescending to you for your wrong choice!” Basically. How many of you guys are wanting to throw up thinking that your usually awesome friends are passive aggressive being jerks to those who don’t agree with them? I can’t go on there anymore. They don’t understand that this is one of the exact reasons we didn’t vote the way they wanted us to, because we are rebels and tired of feeling guilty and falling in line. I for one fight falling in line whenever the hell i can in life after 2008. Although my whole life i have had really sense of self and that whole, i don’t care what you think about me, which is actually seeming rare.

    • DeniseVB says:

      My FB page has some really sad people posting now that I can’t even finish reading them. Very depressing, so I quietly “unfollow” them, but we can still be friends. I just don’t understand the TrumpHate, yet they won’t even allow his supporters to enjoy their first victory in decades 😀

      • I was naive to think I could let up on hiding shit on FB after the election. I’m hiding more stuff than ever now!

      • Constance says:

        They seem to be so stupid that they think Nazis are coming or that gay people are going to be rounded up. How long will it take these idiots to figure out they were being manipulated by the Left and they have been made to look like idiots? I’ve gotten a few of the “What do you do when ignorant people vote the “wrong” way” lectures.

    • taw46 says:

      I was never an every day FB user, but I sure have avoided it the last few weeks. Only check in for a few minutes. And yes, I have been seeing the same type of posts, insulting those who voted for Trump. They are jerks. Luckily for me, most of those I follow did vote for Trump. Or like me, they don’t talk about it.

    • lyn says:

      I lost one friend , because she wanted me to unfriend another woman who was a Trump supporter. I refused.

      • Constance says:

        Yeah the Democrats are really big on shunning people. They don’t see that their behavior these days is making them look vapid.

    • votermom says:

      I think my FB feed is full of conservatives because no one is talking about the election.
      Closet conservatives.
      My fakebook feed (Vigila) is full of gloating and glee.

      • kanaughty says:

        You are so lucky. Many of my family and friends are washington state. They are not only on the west coast bubble, but also the puget sound bubble. I mean it’s seriously like the truman show, they don’t even realize how much of a bubble they are in and hoping they will start thinking for themselves and get out of that echo chamber. I am tired of the feed saying i know you are not racist etc. but now you need to prove you aren’t or some condescending passive aggressive shit. This is coming from smart people who don’t realize how stuck up they are being because their way is the only way to think. They don’t understand just how badly they got played by the lies of the media. Now one thing i do notice is a lot of my friend’s hubbies are for trump though and they have the guts to fight back against this. While i stay in the closet on politics as much as i can there because i lost friends there in 2008 with my support for hillary. Also military friends tend to support trump too.

    • lateblum says:

      I’m so glad I don’t have a FB account any more. I quit FB because I was getting lectured in 2008 and I figured I didn’t need that sh*t then. I’d be bald from pulling my hair out by now. I am, however, getting emails that are not only toxic to me but also to my computer, it turns out. I am currently in the process of doing a full scan because my email tab turned orange when I clicked on the Campaign for America@ourfuture.org (saying “Trump’s Reveals Enemies List [sic]) I have also received emails from ourrevolution.com (saying “you are not alone”) and couragecampaign.org saying “Tonight We Stand Together”. These (and others from The Progressive, have arrived since Wednesday. And there are more in my spam folder that I haven’t even looked at.
      This is getting really annoying. Especially since the state campaign snail mail has stopped. Ugghhhh. 😦

    I had never heard this

    Their will was resolute and remorseless and, as it proved, unconquerable. It fell to me to express it, and if I found the right words you must remember that I have always earned my living by my pen and by my tongue. It was the nation and race dwelling all round the globe that had the lion heart. I had the luck to be called upon to give the roar.” – Winston Churchill

    • CiscoKid says:

      …”I had the luck to be called upon to give the roar..”
      And so has President Trump.
      Good work mothy67, I never would have known

    • taw46 says:

      My mother read many books about Churchill, I should go pull them out. It always gave me chills to hear his WWII speeches.

  7. Dora says:

    I’ve heard of this group before. They are pretty vicious dudes.

    • lateblum says:

      They are present at EVERY protest that I’ve ever attended – and I’ve attended and engaged in plenty. Ask Denise about them as well. They are a communist organization and are no doubt in bed with MoveOn and other Soros endeavors. And yes. They are vicious. I’ve seen them (been present for) cause violence and stir people to do things that, as individuals, they would find abhorrent. I always stayed as far away from the ANSWER people as I could.

    This is such wonderful news. The Donald is changing the world and he hasn’t even been sworn in yet. 🙂

    ObamaTrade Is Dead: White House Abandons TPP As EU Halts Trade Talks After Trump Victory

    Last night I got involved in a FB conversation between my niece and nephew. She was upset because the protesters were burning flags on Veteran’s Day. He’s a college student in Philadelphia who had burned a flag that day. It moved on to why people were burning flags. He believes Trump supporters elected him because they’re white supremacists who couldn’t handle the idea of 8 years of a black man followed by 8 years of a woman. He started sputtering when I pointed out to him if black people had voted for Hillary in the same numbers they had voted for Obama, there’s a very good possibility she would have won. It was “vote suppression” that kept black people away from the poles, according to him. He said he knew this because he had gone to class, done research, read literature, talked to his peers, and met people in his neighborhood. He’s at Drexel. When I suggested he’s being indoctrinated instead of educated, his mom got involved and took after me. She’s my brother’s ex for a good reason. Out of respect for my niece since it was her FB page, I left the conversation, but it turns out she and her fiance are both closet Trump supporters. I expect the next time I see her will be fun. But all fun on FB aside, if I believed half of the US believed what Matt believes they do, I’d probably be out in the street, too. We have a lot of swamp to drain, and the government is just the beginning.
