"Cite."

How it coulda been worse?

Coulda been worse if the parasite, or the commie, or the dope-smoker, or the tree-hugger, had won.

The parasite woulda foisted up, for the next four to eight, the same crap that's been foisted for the past eight.

The commie woulda been worse, by far, in the grade and amount of crap he woulda foisted up.

The dope-head and tree-hugger, both bein' decent human beings, woulda been rendered null by all the less than decent folks in gov (who ain't goin' anywhere).

No, this is an incivil world (to be mild about it) and such a thing calls for pitbulls, not poodles (or leeches).

And, yeah, all I've 'cited' is my opinion (just like others in this thread, not a one of them required to 'cite' diddly).

The coup de grâce would be for Trump to put Monica Lewinsky on his staff.

I disagree. But, let's say Trump 'is' a big old tick about to attach himself to America's hairy hindquarter...I'm way more comfortable with him (and his cronies) making bucks off the presidency than Clinton.

Why?

Cuz he's far more likely to leave me be, sumthin' Clinton and her kind cannot do.

If he does some of the things he claims he wants to do: great!

If he does nuthin' at all (and leaves me be): great!

Again: Clinton and her kind cannot, would not, leave me be.

Had quite enough of strangers dickin' around with me...eight years is plenty.

I hope you're right, but he did run on not leaving women, religious minorities, or brown people alone.

Knew that would come up...frankly, I don't think Trunp and his kind are gonna do squat to women, gays, trannies, blacks, Muslims, or your Aunt Fanny...if there's a profit to be had with Trump in the Big Chair, those groups -- I think -- are just as likely to be in on it as any one else.

But, let's say Trump goes wild on the ladies, the queers, the self-mutilating he/shes, the darkies, and the Allah-ites (and your Aunt Fanny [cuz she’s a royal cunt and deserves it]): fuck 'em...I'm white, straight, a man, and an atheist, meaning a 'privileged, misogynistic, apostate breeder'...the more militant of all those groups would hang me and gut me, so, again: fuck 'em.

If Trump is a baddie, get offa your ass and defend yourself.

Sure as shit, as Clinton 'is' a baddie, that's what I woulda done.

We agree that Hillary would have been a bad choice. People who don't wish ill on their neighbors are trying to figure out what the trip-wire should be in opposing the other bad choice. I get that you are out of the fight and won't stand up unless Grand Inquisitor Franklin Graham comes for you the individual. There is also the bullshit DNC position just like the bullshit RNC position with Obama which places party before country and opposes just to oppose on the off-chance a Trump policy actually helps working people. So for the rest of us the question is at what point should folks be on the barricades?

Always.

Extend not a jot of trust to any employee who presumes to direct you, the employer. Be ready to shoot 'em in the head (figuratively, at least) all the damned time.

Hope for the best (work for it if you can); prepare for the worst.
