I currently volunteer with inner city foster youth. I'll be doubling down my efforts there in any way I can.

I just told my mom I'm not coming home for Thanksgiving because I can't handle being around my family right now. I'm so fucking upset, again, I'm sorry to keep bugging you all with this, I just have no where else as an outlet. My mom, us furious with me. I'm crying at work, and I'm trying really hard to keep it together.

Sorry for all that's been going on in your family, Ashley. I really hope the tension will simmer down in the next few months, but I doubt it.

There's always faithless electors.

All we need is 20 of them.

Sorry for getting so emotional guys. Got caught up in the middle of a lot of things. Let's go back to making fun of Palin.

It's okay. Lots of emotions running high right now.

Didn't Palin have a reality TV show for a time? If Trump does pick her, then we'll have two reality show stars in our federal government.

We're really through the looking glass here, aren't we?

this bed. you made it.

Quote:
The white working class turned out, and they struck back.

The morning after, that already appears to be the dominant media narrative coming out of the 2016 presidential election. Sure, the black and Latino voters that Hillary Clinton was counting on to deliver her to victory were there — but white turnout was up, and especially among white people without college degrees, there was a major swing to Trump.

There’s already furious debate about why this is, and how it jibes with data suggesting that Trump supporters are richer, not poorer, than average. But let’s not lose sight of something very important: Donald Trump’s presidency is going to be an absolute disaster for the white working class, the white poor, and every other economically struggling person in America. The people the media is crediting with Trump’s win have a tremendous amount to lose.

Lower-income whites are not going to suffer from Trump’s restrictions on Muslims traveling, or from his mass deportations, or from his cavalier attitude toward police brutality. But Trump has promised an economic agenda that will increase the ranks of the uninsured by tens of millions, that will eliminate crucial safety net programs for low- and moderate-income Americans, that could start a trade war that drives up prices and devastates the economy, and that will put in place a tax code that exacerbates inequality and leaves many families with children worse off.

That affects all Americans — and with Republicans retaining control over the House and Senate, it stands a very good chance of passing.

One of the worst things for non-Americans is that this has emboldened Trumpeters who are hungry for media attention to crawl out of their holes and swamps everywhere in hopes of duplicating the same result. The Canadian leadership race already has at least 1 who has decided to go down the lunatic path, and she's a woman too.

No need to apologize, you and anyone else should feel free to vent away.

Oh, and...

In a historic context of the past 8 years Palin's nomination as VP was the point conception of the fetal Trump nourished by the growth of the Tea Party placenta.

Good ol' "trickle down" economics strikes again .

There's a word for doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result each time...

If they're anything like my time in the United Kingdom so far... they could always tell mister Trump that his Floridian delegates were improperly filed and take two months to reinstate but continue to fuck it up even then, leaving him without a [White] House to live in.

True story.

So, in essence, we can blame a desperate John McCain.

And if we want to go even further, we can blame George W. Bush for his dirty campaign tactics that pushed McCain from the bid.

Damn you, Georgie.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/russian-d...165347421.html

Quote:
Donald Trump’s spokeswoman says that if there was any contact between members of the president-elect’s campaign and the Russian government, she was not aware of it.

“I do not know of any campaign official that was communicating with any foreign entity during the campaign,” Hope Hicks, Trump’s longtime spokeswoman, told Yahoo News on Thursday.

She said this after a top Russian diplomat told the state-run Interfax news agency that there was a routine line of communication between Moscow and the Trump campaign during the lead-up to Tuesday’s presidential election.

“Obviously, we know most of the people from his entourage,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said. “Those people have always been in the limelight in the United States and have occupied high-ranking positions. I cannot say that all of them but quite a few have been staying in touch with Russian representatives.”
Quote:
Throughout the campaign, Trump and his campaign repeatedly denied having any connection with the Kremlin, while the U.S. government said it believed Russia was behind a series of cyberattacks aimed at influencing the election. The attacks released thousands of embarrassing emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta.

Earlier this month, the New York Times reported that FBI had conducted a preliminary investigation into possible electronic communications between the Trump Organization and servers connected to a Russian bank, but the bureau failed to find a direct link. The bureau reportedly concluded that the interaction could have been a coincidence.
Oh, and there's also this not at all unnerving quote from Trump from a while back:

Quote:
During an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” late last year, Trump explained why he defied U.S. leaders on both sides of the aisle to embrace Putin.

“He’s running his country, and at least he’s a leader,” Trump said when host Joe Scarborough brought up allegations that Putin kills journalists. “Unlike what we have in this country.”
So. Yeah.

Back to prognostication as the FYM Bookie

When we talk about Trump picking cabinet positions we must factor in his managerial style and his value on loyalty in the inner-circle. Even when he let Corey Lewandowski go, he became a commentator on CNN only to troll them on Trump's behalf.

Pence was Trump's first hire and it paid huge dividends. He was a popular mainline conservative with beltway and Gubernatorial experience. His Midwest candor made them a dynamic duo in the Rust Belt push. Trump successfully targeted those population pockets that made the difference.

Rudy Giuliani can have a pick of whatever he wants. Seems like the obvious pick for AG. Word is he would rather State or Defense.

Chris Christie is leading the transition team, but his stock is down based upon 2 cohorts being convicted in Bridgegate

Chief of Staff: Reince Preibus. Take it to the bank (The big MVP of the cycle. Very fair during the primaries. Hit the trail with Trump. In the end takes credit for holding the Senate)

Secretary of State: Newt, Bob Corker, John Bolton, Rudy

Attorney General: Rudy, Trey Gowdy, Pam Bondi

Defense: Jeff Sessions, Rudy, Duncan Hunter Jr (Active Military has to wait seven years before becoming a Civilian head of Defense Department)

NSA : Gen. Michael Flynn

Health and Human Services: Newt, Carson, Rick Scott (I feel Newt may end up here first to untangle Obamacare and he's wonkish enough to craft a replacement)

Treasury: Rep. Jeb Hensarling, Carl Ichan, Steve Mnuchin

Education: Ben Carson

DHS: Christie

Agriculture: Sam Brownback

Interior: Jan Brewer, Mary Fallin, Sarah Palin (I give Palin 4:1 odds, Trump is bullish on opening up more land to fracking, Palin was head of the Alaska Oil Commission (not sure if it is the exact name) and broke-up the old boys network before becoming Governor))

Press Secretary: Laura Ingraham (played Hillary in debate prep)

Wild Cards Rick Perry (Vet Affairs), Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Venture Capitalist Robert Grady (maybe Energy), Sonny Perdue, Huckabee, Sheriff David Clarke

I'd rather a bunch of Wall Street fucks and corporate junkies than the leftovers of the shitty failed Republican campaigns. Give me Lewandowski any day over Rudy, Christie, Palin, Newt, etc. etc.
