Comment Re:Not sure what to think.... (Score 1) 764

Asshattery is a national pastime. We have people from all walks of life walking around being complete and total douches. I am not one of them.

I can not like someone, and am and still polite. Others, go all ape-shit because their gal lost a fucking election and are conspiring to be assholes because ... well THE RUSSIANS HACKED THE ELECTIONS!!!!! and our society (especially the left) is cheering them on.

So, when you start talking about "Manners", lets talk manners. Manners is caring more for others than yourself; they are selfless. Bradley Manning would be more courteous if he didn't force his particular mental disorder upon everyone else around him. Yeah, it sucks to be different. Trust me I know. But unlike others, I am not forcing anyone to call me anything other than what they want to call me, including asshole. Which I can be on occasion when people expect more from me than I am willing to give. But that is more of their problem than mine.

Social rules, which you end your comment with, are exactly what Chelsea Manning is trying to change. The whole LGBTQLMNOP crowd is all about changing "social rules" they don't agree with. So, in a nutshell, social rules are for controlling others, which is bad, unless they are social rules you like, then they are good. See, that is how hypocrisy actually works. Have a great day (I mean it)

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Where in that clause says anything about owning businesses and removing control over them? All he has to do is fully transfer it to his kids (which he pretty much has done), and he is clear.

Meanwhile, Hillary broke this all sorts of ways with the Clinton Foundation and Pay to play schemes while SoS, but nobody on the left seemed to care a wit. I wonder why the hypocrisy now.

If we rid ourselves of party notices on ballots, the idiots won't be able to vote "party line" down the ticket. The Primaries should be fully open with NO party affiliations mentioned on the ballot. That is, unless the parties have their "primaries" on their own dime, and put forth a candidate along with all the other candidates.

The way to void First Past Post in a party supported system is to rid it of the problem, and the problem is the Parties themselves.

Replace "Hacked the democratic process" with "Exposed Democratic(DNC) process to hack the election" and you'd be right.

The HRC loss can be firmly placed on HRC, The Democrats, the MSM and a few RINOs, By all measures, Trump should have lost, and "bigly", but enough people hated HRC, the Democrats and the MSM to ... actually ... not vote for them. I know, it is SHOCKING that Trump won. But consider that HRC was the ONLY candidate the DNC could have put up that he could actually beat.

This isn't the Russians fault at all. But keep on blaming them all you can, and you'll never really understand why the Democrats keep losing ... bigly.
