      Yes, I am pulling that card. I am a woman and a man was just elected who says things like “Just grab them in the Pu**y.”

      bigblucrew, I couldn’t care less if they are white, black, yellow, or orange like Donald. Couldn’t care less if they are Asian or hispanic either. Just want someone who has the interests of America ahead of their own personal agenda, but that is a pipe dream.

    • J-Dub, the white thing is unfair. He has promised 100 billion for inner-city improvements (I’ll be waiting to see where that money comes from), and how do you explain all the conservative black commentators, etc. that endorsed him?
      RCF, I am far from wealthy, and I think you all know me well enough here that as a Christian I don’t use or support that kind of language or behavior at ALL, but here is what I would say to people like Van Jones, who apparently was getting emotional and asking how he explains this to his kids (I haven’t seen the video):

      Tell your kids that you may have won if your party had nominated someone who was not a lying thief & who got people killed in Benghazi and blamed it on a YouTube video.

      That said, I have my disagreements with Trump policy-wise (for example, denying guns to someone on the no-fly list is unconstitutional…there is no due process), and as Mark Levin has said, I’ll hold him accountable when he does something I don’t agree with.

      I’m a woman and I voted for Trump. I also listen to Digital Underground, who advises women to “just grab em in the biscuits.” I don’t take things seriously when it’s obvious they aren’t really being serious. Trump sounded like an old man who never gets any having a bragging talk with a younger dude to sound cool. I have yet to see someone say he walked up to them and grabbed them in the p***y and that be proven true.

    • I’ve read that he opened the resort at Maralago (sp?) to blacks and Jews when other resorts in the same area weren’t doing that. To be honest, I haven’t researched that so I can’t prove it.

      UK Big Board, the email/server situation was implied in the lying part.

      jdub, was he successfully sued?
      bc as we all know from listening to matt, anybody can sue anybody for any reason.
      did they win the case, or was it thrown out?

      (I really don’t know, nor do i care. just playing devil’s advocate)

    • The oldest line from lawyers is that they could indict a ham sandwich.

      Trump was losing the suit to he agreed to a consent decree and was fined, then broke the consent decree.

      Trump was sued by the DoJ in 1973 at the age of 27 years old for racial discrimination stemming from an instance where an apartment complex manager (not him) refused to rent a unit to a black man. He was sued because his name was on the complex, not because he was the individual who turned him away. The DoJ couldn’t prove their case, but the Trumps threw out a very small settlement just to shew them away. I say that to say this. Only a lifetime liberal would attempt to make a racial discrimination accusation more important than manslaughter (at a minimum). Trump is bad, but Hillary is worse. That’s how I am looking at it.

      CG, my daughter asked me in all seriousness if we were now going to have WWIII. I told her that the system of checks and balances that she learned about in school will hopefully prevent that from happening, and that is what truly makes America great. Also, when you say to tell my kids that “my party would have won if not for blah blah blah”, you forget the fact that I am completely against the rigged two-party system. The fact that there is absolutely no voice for anyone outside the two main parties is why everything is broken. My kids didn’t particularly like either one of the main candidates, but they are smart enough to recognize a crass a**hole when they see one, just as they are smart enough to recognize a liar.

      Obama has been catastrophic for black people because illegal aliens are taking all their jobs. That has created hopelessness. So it’s not all white angst.

      STE, buddy of mine runs a landscaping business. He has to hire Hispanic workers because they are the only ones who will show up on time in the morning and work their azzes off without complaining. The other guys he has hired (young white dudes) would come into work high or drunk, or simply not bother to show up. The sad thing was that some of the workers did not have proper documentation, and he had to end up paying hefty fines for having illegals working for him. So what is he supposed to do – fire all the Hispanics and employ drunks and druggies who only work when they want to, and do a crappy job when they are there?

      Don’t get me wrong – there are plenty of young white guys who are honest and willing to work hard. But most of them want more than minimum wage to do it.

    Serious surprise. I am not happy about a Trump victory but am borderline-giddy about a loss for the establishment “more of the same” candidate.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:22 am November 9, 2016 Permalink

      C&M, I am with you on that one. I did not like Hillary at all. Still, if Trump were truly a real “self made man” who had started out as an average person and built his fortune up from nothing, I could handle him a little better. But Trump has lived his whole life with daddy’s silver spoon in his mouth. No way he can relate to what the American middle class has to deal with. And on top of that, he is a complete a-hole.

      Same. I resigned myself 6 months ago to the fact that I was going to hate the outcome of this election, either way. Watching the elites melt down has been kind of fun, and like Matt, I hope Trump does better than I expect he will.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:25 am November 9, 2016 Permalink

      I’m with you on that one, RealMe. Hopefully, now that the election is over, I hope Trump will put his big boy pants on and make some good things happen for our country. And hopefully that will be things that are good for the middle class, where we need the most help.

      Agreed! Pity is, this is the BEST from which we had to choose…REALLY? ?! What a horrible selection sytem, endorsed wholly and equally by both parties, that remains so restrictive, exclusive and corrupt, that it gave us this ridiculous choice.

      ukjay, your list is amusing, but to be honest, at least from an economic point of view, a lot of presidents are victims of the cycles of the economy when it comes to revisionist views of their presidency. The economy has ups and downs naturally. Now sometimes elected officials can do things to try to mediate those ups and downs, but in the end game, a lot of the time they are at the mercy of the wave. Clinton rode it during his presidency – the 90’s were high times. Carter was caught during a trough. Reagan rode the uphill cycle. Yes, he did some things that helped it accelerate temporarily, but Bush Sr paid the price for that when the wave started downhill. I think Obama caught it right at the bottom, but hung around long enough that it started to arc back up. It was a slower recover partly because the trough was so low to begin with.

      i wasn’t really trying to imply anything with my list. i literally took the last 6 coaches and lined them up with the last 6 presidents (and i did it from memory, so i hope i didn’t make a mistake, but it looks right and no one has corrected me yet – which is a big thing on the internet – so i guess it’s right)

    For years my precinct has been in the old high school basketball gym; this time, it was moved…don’t know why; but, it was moved to a building that’s on a church’s property right next to the church…separation of church and state?
    I had never been to that church; but, I walked in and lo and behold…it was another basketball gym.I couldn’t help thinking….this is Kentucky.



    • Booby Petrino
      10:52 am November 9, 2016 Permalink

      my precinct is a church. separation doesn’t count when they need that location for their purposes. I guess they “rent” it out with those tax breaks churches get.

    • I think churches to that as a community service, just like when they open up their buildings as a storm shelter or for a blood drive.

      yeah they used to use schools a lot more than they do now, but since kids are there all day it became a security risk for strangers to be waltzing in all day.

    I’ve never felt so uncomfortable casting a vote in my life. It’s the first time I actually felt negative after a vote. With that said, it’s time for America to get behind the guy. Man or woman, black or white, old or young. I would have said the same if Hillary had won. My hope is that he will exceed my expectations (which seems very easy to do). He now represents the United States of America. It’s time to move on and support the new leader of the greatest country in the world.



    • ukjaybrat
      11:06 am November 9, 2016 Permalink

      I have to agree. whether you like the man or not, he is now our leader (well in a cpl months). bitching about him for 4 years will do nothing but stress you out.

    Not to keep the politics going, because I plan to return to being a very unpolitical person (this election was so bizarre I couldn’t not follow it), but it does bother me that as bad as these choices were, voters would not step outside of the absurdly corrupt 2 party system. Not that Johnson would have been a good President, but how do we never say enough is enough to the GOP and the Dems? Neither party is really looking out for any of us. Thus ends my last political comment for hopefully a long time.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:57 am November 9, 2016 Permalink

      I am registered as an Independent for a reason. That’s why I think voting along party lines is taking a simpleton’s approach. I voted for Johnson not only in protest of the other two choices, but because, as clueless as he is, I thought he would probably do the least damage if elected.



    • J-Dub421

      If Libertarians, or other parties want to change the system and be taken seriously, then they need to put in the work on a state/local level and not just show up for the presidential election every four years.



    • RealCatsFan

      Politics in America has begun to resemble a sporting event, where a lot of people dislike anything perpetuated by “the other team”. Unfortunately, the rhetoric of the politicians has been to play up to this – us against them. The true art of give and take is lost on them.

    • Realme, I agree! I believe you are correct also J-Dub. However, I guess the amount of resources it would take for that kind of movement would be tremendous.
