Can someone develop a politics filter on Facebook? Please?! I am so infuriated by the ignorance surrounding the Trump tapes. I've seen so many shitty memes; everything from comparing it to Beyoncé being sexual, to someone said Hillary said 'fuck' a few times, to Obama said the word 'pussy' once. THIS ISN'T ABOUT LANGUAGE! This isn't about sex. If you can't figure out what it's about, you probably shouldn't be voting.

I'm by no means a Facebook addict, but it would be a shame to have to stop entirely, because Cori the pictures of your house are awesome.

I think a lot of people would be in favor of that idea, BVS-ironically one thing that all sides might actually agree on !

I hardly ever pop on Facebook, so I've been lucky to avoid that mess thus far. I have a lot of conservative relatives, so I'm sure they've posted a few pretty rabid anti-Hilary things, but I think, given most of the people I'm friends with on there, I'd probably read a lot more "Both choices suck" apathetic posts than anything else.

My main experience with the ignorance surrounding Trump has been from reading letters to my local and state newspapers, as well as articles that focused on Trump supporters throughout the state. Some of the stuff I've read there has been.... Trump was not kidding when he said he could shoot someone in the street and still get votes (or whatever the exact quote was). These people are in to the bitter end. It's fascinating and scary all at the same time.

If you're Mike Pence, who may have just despicable ideas but at least seems to live his life according to these backwards ancient ideals... and you're playing yourself out there all day about this proof that well set the record straight about Trump's accusers... and all he comes out with is that the NYT has a Mexican stock holder?

I mean... are ya shitting me?

A 1994 interview with the current GOP nominee for President...

Quote:
Q: So why in 1992 did you tell a writer for New York Magazine, Marie Brenner, that ‘You have to treat women like shit” — ultimately pouring a bottle of wine down her back?

A: I didn’t say that. The woman’s a liar, extremely unattractive, lots of problems because of her looks.

Q: That statement is exactly why women think you’re a chauvinist pig.

A: They’re right — and not. People say, “How can you say such a thing?” but there’s a truth in it, in a modified form. Psychologists will tell you that some women want to be treated with respect, others differently. I tell friends who treat their wives magnificently, get treated like crap in return, “Be rougher and you’ll see a different relationship.” Unfortunately, with people in general, you get more with vinegar than honey.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.

I seriously cannot even begin to describe my anger that one of the mainstream candidates for president of the US judges the worth of a woman entirely on his perception of her attractiveness, and that even as the wheels falls off his campaign more than a microscopic percentage of the population - including, it appears, a majority of men in a majority of states - remain willing to give their support to a person who does this.

Yet also voter intimidation tactics the Republicans have been encouraging for at least three election cycles now. Ugly as it is, this isn't unique to Trump.

Yeah, and I used to be able to copy/paste and see it on twitter, but now that isn't even working.
