Comment Re:Democrats are the enemy (Score 1) 549

I now consider Democrats to be the equivalent of the "other side" in a war - they will still oppose every and any thing your side does, they can lose a battle and still wage war, incessant and total non-compliance, they will fight to the last man, and any victory - even pyrrhic - is still a victory. Any means are justified in the pursuit of their ends.

Sounds like the last 8 years of Republicans. Fighting everything done, without trying to do anything constructive themselves.

I was thinking through the recent news (last night) that Trump got Carrier to keep 1000 jobs in the US, and how I couldn't see a way to frame that in a bad light.

You see nothing wrong with millions in corporate welfare while refusing to feed or educate children in need? I guess that's the issue. Why do you support corporate welfare, while opposing child welfare?

And no, I'm not a Democrat. So save that vilification for someone else.

More than 50% of the voting public stayed home.

That's what I said. Read the numbers. It rounds to: 50% voter turnout, 24%Hillary 23% Trump 3% other.

Also note, not voting for Hillary *or* Trump is an option without staying home. If Jill had gotten 10% of the vote, and Gary 15% of the vote, and 38% Hillary and 37% Donald, the discussion now would be vastly different. Even more so if the 3rd parties managed to get enough states to "block" an outright majority.

3rd party votes aren't wasted. Voting D or R is a wasted vote.

Yes. There are multiple confirmations that Trump does many of the "insane" tweets personally. He does them at 3 a.m. because otherwise, someone is there to stop him. He works 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., naps, then works 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., and claims "work" between then, when the interns are actually sending the tweets. Sometimes he has a public appearance in the day, but much less than any other candidate.

His entire life is a PR lie.
