Fellow DU members please be careful judging Trump supporters

Hi everyone this is a big call I know but I do not want the US to fall into a civil war and here are a thing or 2 I am doing to try and prevent that from happening.;

There are many reasons why a person voted for Trump, as many as there are supporters however now the facts about Trump are coming out and layers of supporters are coming off Trump just like an onion but where are they going, into what type of camp? Depends on how they are treated. Now I am listening to the Trump voter.

If us progressives do a victory dance at the cooler every morning it probably is just going to piss the Trump supporter off and they might join an even worse group that reflects that anger. Instead I try and be present and listen when I realize the other person has really liked Trump and listen without reacting with my own stuff.. I notice the anger and frustration and their feeling of being abandoned, that is suffering by any measure.

Many of them just want to talk so they can come to terms with their own reasons for following Trump and maybe discover truthful options to build with.

Just a reminder from one social field professional to another, if the Trump supporters think there is no solution to their love for Trump there is a good chance mass shootings and crowd run downs is going to increase.

it finally makes sense

One of the main reasons for the taxpayer-funded attorneys at the Gibson Dunn law firm was not just to try and clear Christie from Bridgegate but also so go through the office to try and make sure any items like pesky emails or calendar entries that might conflict with Chrsties claims was eliminated. However they said they did not even interview any of the other members of Bridgegate. Wildstein said he has something that will incriminate Christie but that was over a year ago and there has not been any proof he has anything. But it is almost as if he is running interference for Christie and leading the DA. I am so looking forward to this trial!

snow level going down in southern OR

Stormy in Seatle, some rain here in southern OR. Looks like northern CA is getting some snow too but its going to take a long time of regularly scheduled rain and snow fall before this drought is corrected.
The newly warm pacific or 'El Nino' is bringing some promised rain but its weak, barely warm so if we go back to a cold pacific, 'La Nino' like in last 4 years CA infrastructure is going to need some help because there will be a real long term water shortage in one of the most productive growing areas on earth

really?

I am in a wheelchair and I get met with people trying to avoid the disabled persons smell everyday so this research sheds some light on the truth. Research helps us prove or disprove a theory and get a little closer to the truth. OL I am guessing you are from the south originally?

well there are the Dems sound bites from now on

just say the republicans, "....propose major spending cuts to programs such as Medicare, health care subsidies, food stamps and the Medicaid program for the poor and elderly to produce a budget that's balanced." over and over

Oh wait its the democrats were they keep their powder dry until they feel the need to deny something the GOP is accusing them of. \sarcasm off

maybe, but lets hear from the folks he was shooting at

Need some corroboration but my first thought was how did he hit both targets at 125 yards with a 40?

Obama is on a nother level

For good or bad our president does not react based on primitive emotions like many in the GOP do. His reaction if any will be well thought out. He is not the guy to follow if you are into getting your rocks off by stepping on other people, he keeps his eye on the big prize.

don't upsat the applecart!

Doubt they just typed it up and sent this letter, they had to ask at least 40 other congresspeople if they would sign it so am sure this action was cleared with the shot callers in the GOP. Remember Iran has been our sworn enemy (cash cow) for years and we have paid billions to the defense industry to protect us from those darn Iranians. The problem is Obama and Kerry and some others in the democratic party are looking at the Iranian issue from a world perspective and trying to bring some peace to the middle east and that is not what those that make money from demonizing Iran want.

I have faith the universe knows what its doing and these greedy politicians will get whats coming so I am getting some popcorn going to watch house this plays out
