God, please pinch me and wake me up. This must be a dream/
« on: November 10, 2016, 08:45:42 AM »
Just read that Trump is president.
I had 4 quick, gutteral reactions to this.
Huh? What? Huh? And what?

Possibly mankinds most toxic time in history and yet people saw adding poison as a solution? The man is, politically, an absolute moron, completely oblivious to the real world.
Wonder how long until he's impeached.

I seriously don't understand people if they decided he was a good idea. Absolutely baffled.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

How ironic. More than half of the Amerikan people would've thought the same thing if the witch Clinton was elected for president..

That's about as ironic as most of the things in the Alanis Morisette song. :)
That is to say, not ironic at all. :)

May be true, but falls outside the definition of ironic.

At least Clinton can string a few words together coherently and doesn't look confused all the time. Nor is she openly corrupt in business, or openly misogynistic.

This isn't to say I'm a fan, but she seems the better of 2 evils at the moment. The way the world is at the moment Trump is like a bull in a China shop. And oblivious to this.

America is a dying empire, and Trump will accelerate the fall.

He'll be either impeached or assassinated at some point, I just hope he doesn't do too much damage 1st.

Hmm. Should be under CH/politics but nevermind.
Actually last time I checked the popular vote was with HC by 200k votes. But the election isn't decided by popular vote.
@fishy.. I suggest If you don't live in the country you can't see all ends.

I really don't know why some people are so afraid of Trump. The same thing happened when Ronald Reagan became president. They thought he was some kind of new Hilter or something, and World War III was forthcoming. But after 8 years, WW-III was still science-fiction. Heck, Reagan even stopped the cold-war!

The extreme right - neo-Nazis, ultra-Nationalists, misogynists, climate change deniers - has taken over the Republican Party, which now has total control over every part of the federal government. That is indescribably dangerous. This is waaaaaay different from Reagan, Bush, or even Nixon. Hate crimes and acts of intimidation are already being perpetrated against women and minorities, and these guys haven't even assumed office yet.

When one person's rights are threatened, all of our rights are threatened. If you think you're going to be safe under this new regime, think again.

@Amidude

You seem to have problems with definitions.
A single clip in no way amounts to "all the time".
Everyone has bad moments.
Trump on the other hand looks confused more often than not.
Also, and I don't mean to sound antagonistic, but there's no such word as "stopt"?
I assume English isn't your native tongue?

@gertsy

Ah, I somehow missed the CH/politics forum, hence the reason I put it in general.

@thread

Perhaps its that I'm just not used to it, but the overt patriotism thing seems bizarre to me. I was playing with some streaming 360° cameras of Trumps acceptance speech and just prior to him taking the podium his supporters, I kid you not, started up a "U.S.A, U.S.A, U.S.A" type chant.  :)
Cracked me up. Who is it these people think they're competing against in a domestic election?  :)

This illustrates the situation quite well.

Oops..typo!

Ha-ha, you guys are making me laugh. You're scared for nothing. We'll see after 4 (or 8) years and I promise you that the world is still intact.
But, that said I truely believe that the world is coming slowly to an end some day. But I don't think it shall be within Trumps presidentship.
