I agree with that statement; every one on the left, Obama, Clinton also said to everyone to accept the results. I also voted (for neither) - but if these idiots are out now protesting the results, where were they on election day? Most say the turnout for Hillary was rather low - and they automatically thought they would win because eh, its Trump. It's their own fault, they should now shut up , or if they wish , leave.

-edit

He has a good point though, and I can see why Trump won actually. I do not really buy this whole myth either about it was just sexists/racists etc that were supporting Trump. The left did this to itself, too much PC - and this was the result.

There is no need for apology. I'm sure President Trump will be a different person and I'm sure he will not make that wall between USA and Mexico. Yes, Considering warm relations between republicans and Likud perhaps Israel will occupy more lands and destroy more Palestinians home and farms. Given the fact that Saudi Arabia has supported Clinton, perhaps they will have to pay more to US government to drop their bombs on Yemeni children. And because Mr. Trump doesn't like climate change agreements, perhaps Maldive island will drown sooner and polar bears extinction will become closer. But, these are not US people faults, they vote for better jobs, better care, better insurance and better future for their children same as other countries. However, if I live in America, I would think what my vote will brings to the world too.

Is flawed many other ways too... since the dawn of civilization our smartest minds have stated democracy is greatest unless you put people in charge!!!

Should we kill one person to save ten, many may ask who are these eleven or even simply reply yes? If they are all healthy babies should we kill one to save ten? To me these are not opinions but NO!

Can you hear me? No. Can you read here? Yes... these are facts, people will never be facts. I vote yes or no, right or wrong, you vote opinions ie for people; neither will fix the world due to the latter... if every person voted on policies ONLY then we could fire the ones doing what government currently is not, a job!

Pages here now load better with Jeebiz on my ignore list. Not ignored because of political or religious views.

Ignore keeps all the videos he is uploading from loading in the threads now.
Just being pragmatic. Sorry Jeebiz. I can still view your posts one by one if I so wish it.

As an alternative, if you block ytimg.com and youtube.com with noscript, you just get a box with an error message that loads fairly fast. And it works for anyone posting annoying videos*, not only Jeebiz.

* I consider every video annoying, since getting info from watching a video is so much slower than reading the same message in text.

I have an agreement with a friend to recycle old magazines. She gets the New Scientist when I have finished with it, and I get her old Sagas and Spectators. The Spectators are sometimes months old but all the more interesting for that because I can compare what was predicted with how things actually turned out.

I have just finished an issue dated 17th September and it contained the following paragraph:
Quote:
This is why I now feel it quite likely that Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States. This is not because of Hillary Clinton's pneumonia or her lack of openness about her health; it is because she called Trump supporters a 'basket of deplorables'. With this she has probably dug her own grave.

People also need to recognize that the vote for Trump wasn't only a revolt against Hillary, it was against the Clinton/Bush cabal. As dugan pointed out before, the Democrats lost not only the presidential election, they also lost down ballot as well.
And now we know where Occupy Wallstreet, Black Lives Matter, and all the other Soros-funded thugs are, every state that Clinton won is having riots and protests. Make no mistake, this isn't spontaneous. Soros spent $2 million in one race to oust an Arizona sheriff, how much do you thing he will spend to enjoy watching the U.S. burn?

I actually appreciate that JeeBizz posts these things ... including a CrossTalk episode that I had not yet seen.

Truly, about 2:44, they put the nail on the head: "The elites were talking to the elites, but no one was listening to the people."

It was, thus, a "Dewey Defeats Truman" moment, especially for hawks like The Clinton News Network CNN.

To me, it is very interesting to listen to programs like these which come from an Eastern perspective. Throughout this sh*t-fit campaign, we've heard a lot from people like Vladimir Putin who, although he's certainly as bloody a leader as the American President anyone else, did have a lot of things to say about the situation, and said them very well.

That episode ... and, you should watch it through ... particularly made points about "The Mainstream Media,™" versus the resourceful use of "Social Media." As the Clinton machine ground through its well-worn maneuvers, there was never any thought in that Mainstream Mind that she would win. She would win California, Oregon, Washington, Florida, and "that would be that, just like it's been for so many years." But, when you're listening [only ...] to yourself, you think that Mr. Dewey is a fantastic candidate.

"On the morning after," with lampshades still perched on top of their heads, that Mainstream Machine was still, reflexively, saying the same thing, not quite internalizing the fact that it no longer mattered and that what they'd been saying for all this time was utterly wrong. Like I said in post #1 of this thread, people wanted most of all to say, "Yer Fired!" to rulers that had long ago run out of welcome, and, they did just that.

I actually suspect that "The Donald" will turn out to be a much better leader than people give him credit for. As these journalists observed, he did get better at "being a candidate" as time went on. (So, he was always dead-serious about it, and not, as I once feared, a "repugnant negative alternate-choice" designed to secure his opponent's victory.) People who have been wallowing in cash for thirty years, increasing the number of US military bases to now more than six hundred, are probably going to experience a purge. (American style.) Time to get the hell out of DC while they still can do so gracefully, and go write their memoirs, and lick their wounds.
