Actually it was in the celebrity video. Wasn't mocking you, because I haven't been on FYM in 2 weeks because I had to serve time for trolling with Youtube videos. I was able to log on at again 7:10 pm.

Sorry for the confusion. Nothing personal.

What I see pointed to from Trumpets and BoBers looking to push this whole DNC-conspiracy-against-Bernie thing, far more than anything else, is the emails among DNC staffers bitching about Bernie. What they fail to mention (or just don't know) is that those emails were sent in May 2016, after it had become mathematically impossible for Bernie to capture the nomination. A little bitching about someone who refuses to concede after it has become mathematically impossible for them to win is, frankly, completely understandable.

Look, the DNC didn't do Bernie any favors. They also didn't cost him the nomination. Both parts are allowed to be true. The DNC wanted Clinton, and Bernie couldn't overcome that because a large majority of the electorate wanted Clinton, too.

He wasn't able to thead the needle like some other guy

And in reality, as the election showed, a good chunk of the US would have been horrified if Sanders had won. Whether he's a better bet than Trump or not, it would still be a deeply divided nation.
There is a real problem here, and it's in most western democracies. Decades of bipartisan politics is destroying the whole point of democracy. Instead of voters exercising choice they blindly vote their team. They don't think critically. They don't contemplate alternatives.
I'm not sure having more parties, or empowering minor parties, really makes much difference. We have 4 good sized parties in nz but most people blindly follow one of them no matter what.
The problem is us. The voters. Not main stream media or political parties or donors or email misuse. It's the population deciding they don't give a shit because, you know, she'll be right.
Until it isn't all right.

Trump has officially booked his entertainment for his Inauguration... he will follow up a president who had U2, Beyonce' and Springsteen (among others) with the Beltawy's favorite 80's cover band, The Reagan Years, who will split time with The Mixx, another cover band... who are actually just the same cover band, but this time they play more than just 80's.

Yes, this is true.

I'm hoping playing Trump's big Inauguration Ball will be a good warm up for that gig at Champion Billiards Sports Cafe.

I'm so frustrated and done with this. On that conversation of splitting the country into smaller nations, I'm all aboard. This is insanity.

The president-elect of the United States just tweeted about the need to expand our Nuclear Program.

We're all gonna die.

Can you just imagine how wonderful it would be?

They could walk around with a pistol strapped to their side, go to their coal mining gig, then the bar afterwards, and when there's an altercation they have a duel to death and everyone chants "second amendment". It would be nice and white, students wouldn't have to worry about science homework ever again, school would be just about how you feel, if you feel 2+2 is 7 then by golly it is. Women could go back to cooking or being whores. It would be like the western movies but with smartphones.

Of course when their smartphones eventually die, they won't be able to upgrade because they don't do globalism. So all those pony express jobs will be coming back.

I feel so cozy just thinking about it.

We had a nice run, but our interests don't align anymore. I mean at least in the 80s we could all agree that Russia sucked. We can't even get that right anymore.

United States of Soviet Russia

Dude tweeted about nukes just hours after Putin discussed the same issue.

For all these American flag wearing, red white and blue bleeding GOP people, why do they accept a president who looks up to, praises, and quite possibly beholden to a known enemy of our country?

What would Ronald Think???

Not at first, but you'll build your tolerance in time. And then your liver will explode. But probably not before the world.

The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes
What? I don't understand. What does that even mean? We already have the second most, and the guy's in third aren't even CLOSE to having as many. And...let's be real...it only takes a handful to destroy the planet...how many do you really need?
