Brexit - It is not going to happen here, Trump is not getting elected

One simple reason, our electorate is different from theirs. They are 80+ percent white. If we had similar demographics then Trump would win. (Easily I might add so we shouldn't knock them) We don't/He won't.

Also, I find it ironic, those same ignorant Brits who voted in Thatcher, leading to their erosion of jobs, now voted to leave. So basically they fucked the subsequent generations twice. Here the same ignorant racist assholes who elected Reagan are those supporting Trump in the largest numbers.

Now before anyone goes off on me for ripping on other generations, my generations was the ignorant college aged Republicans who turned out for Ronnie.


Hillary Clinton is going to be President of a much different Country

Obama came in and changed the course, not nearly as much as I had hoped, but I understand the hurdles he faced. ESPECIALLY RW CORPORATE OWNED Democrats. There were always two or three Senators limiting the dialogue/progress and the mainstream media willing to support the Republican agenda AND have a few Democrats to point to as opposition.

Bernie came in with his balls to the wall approach, not holding back, speaking truth from the heart. And it caught on!!!!

So now we have tens if not hundreds of Democratic elected officials staging a sit in and streaming video. Bypassing the Republicans along with the MSM. Hillary will not be able to govern like her husband did. A term of triangulation will not suffice, people are pissed and want action.

Congrats to Cleveland and HRC

Cleveland finally gets another championship.

And a Democrat Nominee has never won the Presidency when a Western Conference Team wins.

LeBron is still a dick.

I hate to be pessimistic about gun control

But based upon past experiences and the posts I see on FB today, I think we have a much bigger problem.

The right is bat shit fucking crazy, they are petulant fucking children, horrible, horrible people.

I live in Southern Cal, grew up in AZ. So when a major event occurs it is always the same, a day of silence (the idiot talking heads haven't given them the message yet) followed the next day by posts deriding Obama. (They got their talking points)

A couple of things, I expect the AZ crew to always come up with bat shit crazy stuff, they proudly vote for Sheriff Joe and likely believe Obama is a Muslim.

A good many of the CA folks are Evangelical Christians, after the Charleston shooting last year, and the family members forgiving Dylann Roof, I was very interested on how these people would respond. Not a single response, NOT ONE FUCKING SINGLE RESPONSE to what was arguably the most Christian actions in decades! Liberal friends, some strong Christians, had posts or likes, but nothing from the "special" ones.

IMO here is the issue, the righties refuse to even consider any good coming out of anything from a liberal, either in actions or proposals. So global warming is fake, because they first heard it from Al Gore and liberals. Sensible gun control, NOPE, that is a left wing idea.

A post from an out of stater and her personal contact today with a neighbor brandishing a gun quickly devolved into a thread on, "he could do damage with an ax," "if we had gun control only criminals would have guns and then we couldn't protect ourselves."

The elected Republican politicians act the way they do because that is exactly the way their electorate wants them to act. It truly is a class of cultures and I don't see anything that will make them act in a manner that is Country first. To them it is and will always be Party first. We end up with them justifying their votes for Palin and now Trump and no logic, facts, or event is going to get them to change.


Tweety is on/off his meds. Slamming Hugh Hewitt

The douchebag is going on and on with his anti Hillary list. On his second time through, Tweety cut him off and ended with, every time I have Hugh Hewitt on, no matter what question I ask I should be prepared for the response Hillary sucks.

Hugh looked like he sucked a lemon.

Everyone needs to chill the fuck out!

Clinton will not lose this! Why? - numerous reasons.

1. Trump is a horrible candidate and human being.
2. Electoral Math - Trump needs to run the table of all swing states.
3. Team Obama will be out in force during the last three months, thus motivating voters to solidify his legacy.

It will be close, in the range of 271 to 296 Electoral Votes, but she will pull out a victory.

EDIT IN JUNE: I meant 371 to 396 range! Seriously I didn't see the Trump meltdown coming this fast.

This from a guy who thinks she sucks as a candidate and as a person. That being said, it is my opinion. No need to post daily about all of her shortcomings, just as there is no need to have numerous posts calling for Bernie to drop out.

EDIT IN JUNE: O.K., time for Bernie to drop out.

Toughen up Clinton supporters, you are going to really start seeing the Republicans and media start tearing in to her, and her numbers will continue to drop. Better now than September, she can rebound, win her prized possession and be President for a term.

EDIT IN JUNE: The Repubs will rebound, I think June is lost for them. They will go into extra hate mode in July, most people will be too busy to notice, she will bounce back, repeat in September, bounce back in October!

For my latest can't miss prediction! UTAH IS IN PLAY!!!!!! Seriously the Mormons hate Trump more than they hate liberals.
Instead of bright red it will be mauve, within 10 points.



For fucks sake, if John Miller or John Baron is calling and giving details

And little Donald says it isn't him,.... Then isn't the logical follow up question, who is John Miller/Baron? How does he have details to your life? Why did you apologize for impersonating John Miller on one occasion. Come on media, do your damn job and let him keep digging deeper.

Edit: Rachel just reported that the WaPo reporters asked the follow up question. Silence and the phone went dead. That's the way you do it.

Just saw the news that Chistie has been named to lead the Trump transition team

How the hell is this even possible. He isn't the former Governor of NJ, he is the current Gov. who has a full time job already.

The dude punched at The OC Trump event - Cole Bartiromo

Familiar name, he is the cousin of Maria Bartiromo

His own video of the event in Costa Mesa has him calling the protesters, "pond scum" and "scum of the earth."

Below is an article on this sleaze bag. Although the violence is condemnable, I am guessing he antagonized the crowd.

Congrats to Hillary and her supporters, you have won, BUT....

This is an unsustainable system. Independents are the majority of voters, under the current system they are disenfranchised in too many States. I have read a number of over the line posts saying this is acceptable, Chris Matthews is going on about registering as a Dem if you want to have impact. Very Republican comments on both fronts, someone would have had to focused in October 2015 to vote in the NY Primary, to put it bluntly, that is fucked up.

My next step, to change my party affiliation to unaffiliated , in California I can do this and still vote in the Democratic primary. Thirty five years of being a Democrat is over, highly unlikely I will ever be a Dem again.

My change will mean jack shit, no impact on a state or national election, I hope it will impact those states that have rules in place that are not as democratic as CA, because in no logical realm can a Country label itself as a Democracy, yet disenfranchise such a large percentage of voters.
