Nobody asked me if I watched it, did they ask you?

Those stats are probably from the same people who said Wisconsin was a lock for HRC :lol:
Oh I see you are using "alternate facts". How convenient.
I watched it, but it was on a television where I was eating lunch. Naturally I couldn't hear anything. How many viewers does that count as? One? The entire restaurant? Only those facing the TV?

Stats like these are not "facts". They are merely guesses.

Ignoring the Constitution, that's a good one, after eight years of doing whatever felt good.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/exami ... cle/736031

And that's just one example.

I also have to laugh at all the whining that Betsy DeVos is unqualified to run the Department of Education... poor fools don't know she isn't being brought in to run it, she's being brought in to shut it down, along with the liberal scheme of free for all student loans that has buried so many young people hopelessly in debt.

The election is over. Now we are stuck with Trump. You think the USA is in a bad place now? Hey now, just you wait a bit.

He is going to "Make America Great".

At least put up a sign saying that over the gate.

Indeed it is and indeed we are. What an improbable sequence of events that brought us to the point of getting such an apparent nutjob in the White House.

Too bad we don't have line item elections on policy issues, instead we're stuck with package deals. In order get someone who will fix tax policy that was running the country into the ground at warp speed we have to pick up a bunch of stupid stuff like dangerous pipelines.

I had thought Trump would be one and done, now with these union endorsements I'm not so sure. Throw that on the pile of things you thought could never happen.

This, IMO, is one of the major roadblocks to true progress in this country. In fact, Obama at one point claimed he wouldn't sign any bill that had more than one line item, if my memory serves. That certainly didn't happen.

The contrast that kills me is that one seemingly cannot vote pro-life and pro-environment at the same time. Yet the opposition to either is deeply rooted in denial of our best science.

Not sure who that was directed towards but I didn't get what I wanted; what I wanted wasn't on the menu.

I commend you though for taking such a firm stand on free speech.

Only 41% of Trump voters say that the stock market went up during the Obama administration. 39% say it went down, and another 19% say they're not sure.
Go to any market information service, and verify for yourself. The market was up. Dow Jones, S&P500, NASDAQ, and any other broad average you care to look at.

A serious question:

Why can 39% of Trump's voters think otherwise?
