Re: “The Trump presidency, deplorables, the media, and more

Hey Rocky, Congress was supposed to control the President but FDR started shifting that power and it kept shifting. Congress then turned its attention toward campaign donors, not you or anyone else. Those with a lack of understanding of The Constitution and the adherence to it is what fails us all. Billary's people are blaming everything, everyone and missing the real culprit: her.
Ron Lowe Nevada City, California? WTF are you writing to this town for? Worn out your welcome there? I will be happy to talk with you about anything when you arrive here, that is if you can get that "older people" phrase out with your tongue still in your mouth otherwise you will sit and listen and you will learn-the hard way if you wish. Sorry about your children that you explain the world to. Not.
Gina! Hire new writers- "for-profit media are responsible for this, and will not report it as such". Care to qualify that statement? Try, I dare you. Then follow up with your sister's racist remark and what sort of people your parents were besides failures at raising children with brains. Detroit huh? Cheap housing and city council is all in jail, police response time is never and fireman must bring water from home because of______________?

Dan Marvin: Well, what did you expect from a con man RINO who is actually a Democrat? Ron Paul? (BTW, you would have gotten the same old S*** from Hillary, too!)

Robert B. Hoff: Or maybe he won't. Time will tell. But Hillary will try again in 2020 if she lives that long.

Ryan Carrigan: Thank you for your service, but you miss part of it. Clinton lost because she didn't campaign worth a crap on anything except that she wasn't Donald Trump.

Ken Burrows: Complain about Trump all you want, but with Hillary and her PC insanity, would it have been any better or different save the flip on who's acting out? Unlikely.

Ron Lowe: When you get a clue about how and why the Electoral College works, and that the Presidential election is not one national election but 51 state elections (and DC), then get back to us. We are not a democracy, so quit whining as if we were.

Gina Douglas: Have a binky for your whining. Your career criminal Hillary lost because she was a lousy candidate who campaigned poorly. Place your whining blame where it belongs: on her.

Re: “The Trump presidency, deplorables, the media, and more

"Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States of America, do you want to know why? It is simple: Hillary Clinton called me a 'deplorable....'" That's it, huh? You chose to be hurt or insulted or piqued or whateverthehell because you think she called you a name? Drumpf said Mexicans were murderers and rapists and must be kept out of our pristine white country with a impenetrable wall, and you were okay with that?? He called women "bitches" and "whores" and bragged that he could grab them by the private parts and they couldn't do anything about it--and that's alright with you? But god forbid Clinton call you something. He threatens to jail, deport, and otherwise harm people because of their choice of faith paths, dismembering families, separating parents and children, but that's no skin off your nose because you're not Muslim, right? You're not female, disabled, black, elderly, homeless, gay--so you're okay with all of the danger those "other" people are in. But, but, but--she called me a bad name!!! Sheesh....

Re: “The Trump presidency, deplorables, the media, and more

Interesting letters this week. First off our system of the electoral college does work we vote in a Democratic way but count in the electoral so as to be true to our republic. That's what you tell your children the truth. If you remember correct Baby Bush won the same way. Time will tell if Trump makes the right calls for our Country with what powers he may have. I personally think things are going to put in that hand basket and go to that place Grandma warned us about. But we will see. Everybody wants some kind of change and looks to the President to do it but ignores the rest of our leadership where the changes are needed and that's Congress. All of our policy and laws come from that group and yet everyone looks to the President. Trump just like Obama and Bush is only going to get as much done as Congress allows and Congress is influenced by money. Not your vote not mine just by who ever has the most money and they are secure in there jobs because the voters are preoccupied by the Presidential election and whats promised to them by that one person. Everyone talks about coming together as one Nation but we keep voting one group over the other then the next time its the other groups turn after the first group screws up and blames the President. We need balance, compromise and solid leadership in all three branches of Government. Not one side takes all and we damn sure need the money taken out of the Capitol so the people have a voice again. The biggest problem with Obama was Congress not doing a damn thing and him going forward on his own with what few powers he had. We dont need more of that. But that's just my opinion.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Yeah, I guess the right has conviently forgotten the last 8 years of hate that they rained down on Obama. They voted in a candidate backed by the KKK. It's like they've just smeared shit over every WWII soldiers grave with their voting in of President Man-Baby.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Thank goodness the President doesn't have near as much power as the average idiot seems to think he does. If he did I would be very afraid but if 8 years of Bush didn't prove that no idiot is going to be allowed an unsupervised presidency. He will do as much damage as the real people in power allow him to to serve their own purposes.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Hey Mike What has Clinton been convicted of? Here's a clue NOTHING. Why? Because maybe nothing shes done is CRIMINAL. Have you ever thought of that.Trump knows this and has known this but used the hype to get a bunch of folks to vote for him. Why was the the Federal form of Government changed? Here's another clue It did'nt work as intended. To many using there office to benefit themselves and not the people that sent them there. The people sent a bunch of fellas to Washington to do there bidding for them and when they got there they did what ever they wanted and not what the people wanted. Take your own advice read a History book. Sound like someone you just voted for. Think about what you just admitted. He said first thing was jail Clinton and take the ACA down. He hasent even taken office and has said he wont do either. What else wont he do that he promised once he takes office. Your screaming about some folks following the Liberals blindly when your doing the same thing with Conservatives. Our form of Governing is not perfect but its still the best in this World if he screws us over then we get to vote him out in four years or possibly impeach him. What Socialist Country gets this power? Should this "old Man" quit bitchen NO because that's something else that makes this Country great we all get to Bitch without retaliation its a right that's given to all of us including you, him and me.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Time to debunk the Hazy Hurts again...

The short of it is this:

Your criminal girl Hillary lost. Get over it and kwityergritchin', old man.

The long of it is this:

Yes, the con man won, and he immediately has moved left to embrace the policies that your criminal girl Hillary and your socialist pals in Failuresville just love, so kwitchyergritchin', old man.

That, and you really need to crack open a real history book and learn the difference between the federal form of government we as a nation started with and kept until 1860 and the national form of government that we've had ever since (and screwed up the nation mightily along the way, too).

But then again, Hazy, you're a bitter old man socialist, so I don't expect any of that to ever happen. You're simply not bright enough.

So you're left to whining and complaining and engaging in typical liberal stereotypes, devoid of susbstance and full of crap.

So do us all a favor: kwitchergritchin', old man.
