Everytime I think Trump's an idiot, I remember all the idiots he's pissed off, and I think he may be worth it.

Cool, thanks for the responses.

It's been a weird week. Knowing that people said they were voting for him because they thought he'd bring back jobs and then realizing they were lying and were actually bigots that hate Muslims. And science, for some reason.

Ah well. What can you do.

The more Trump opens his mouth and the more he uses that pen the less respect i have for him

I understand wanting to cut costs, but some areas i dont think cost should be cut. Example submarines, he wants to cut costs on making them but he wants more of them. I just foresee alot of issues due to cuts on this, I dont expect many to get this but this is a big thing near my neck of the woods (def. my hometown) I expect those who live in VA might get it too, (you newport news types hehe)

So are you saying everyone who voted for Trump is a Muslim-hating bigot? Keep in mind, I didn't vote for him; I'm just curious because that seems like an overly broad generalization.

I voted for him and I dont hate muslims. I do want to see us keep folks who want to blow up buildings and shoot other people kept out of the country. I have mixed feelings on the immigration orders in effect right now but if people would just stop trying to kill each other it would make it so much easier for people to emigrate and work to find their slice of happiness.

Unfortunately, at this point I don't know what I think. Overly broad generalization, it definitely it is. But after the past 10 days, I'm pretty much past the point of giving a F*ck.

Maybe I'll rephrase it to the people who voted for him *but still support what he is doing*. Although, he has said the whole time he'd be doing the Muslim ban....so, if someone still voted for him then they knew what they were supporting in advance. Whereas other areas they might not have known about, like, how could we know that he and Bannon and a couple other dudes would be working so surgically to cut off any branch of government that could circumvent them...and that actual, normal, decent human being type of republicans in congress, etc., would sit back and go along with things that they believe are unconstitutional or un-American.

It's been making the rounds, so you might have seen this.

https://medium.com/@yonatanzunger/trial-balloon-for-a-coup-e024990891d5#.djs4yoyuv

If you haven't, it's worth a read. It's an assessment or speculation, based on the facts of the past 10 days...so, you know, it's more of a think piece (before anyone starts decrying #fakenews). But it's a f*cking chilling and dark assessment of the shit that's going on right now.

And exact33, if you feel like banning a group of people based on religion is a step towards a decrease in terrorism and an increase in people not killing other people...I don't know, dude. I assume we need to ban white Christian men too.

For more...fun reading on Bannon:

A story/interview in Vanity Fair from last summer after he joined Trump's campaign, which among a lot of other...thing, includes this ominous quote:

"Trump is a “blunt instrument for us,” he told me earlier this summer. “I don’t know whether he really gets it or not.” It is likely that Bannon’s political calculus here, if not Trump’s, will be less about winning an election that seems a bit out of hand and more about cementing an American nationalist movement."

http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2016/08/breitbart-stephen-bannon-donald-trump-master-plan

And that resurfaced a couple days ago in another VF article, that is also looking at Bannon's whole thing with destroying the media (or, at least, the media that does not agree with Trump--I assume Breitbart and Infowars--you know, "fact-based" stuff, is exempt):

Dont care much for medium. Too left leaning for my tastes. Again with the ban - its for all folks coming from those countries, the majority of which are muslim. What people forget is radical muslims are the ones bent on doing harm to others. Unless someone has a radical muslim detector that points them out i think we need to be more diligent in preventing folks who want to hurt innocent folks.

From what I understand--though I do not claim to be an expert on anything--there have not been any terrorist attacks here from the countries in the ban.

F*ck it, as I said, Trump voters are obviously bigots.

its traditional liberal rhetoric - the right want to eat your children, and do all kinds of awful things. After the softball media repeats it enough people become indoctrinated with it.

I was in a comic store in late december and the amount of hate the liberals behind the desk displayed was amazing for people who are supposed to be showing what tolerance of others is about.

I just don't like the double standard.

Why is it OK to brand all Trump voters as ignorant, bigoted sheep but if I said something like all Obama voters are tree-hugging pansies just looking for free shit, I'm a racist?  And before anyone jumps my case, while I make no apologies for my hatred of thankfully ex-President Obama, my issues were with his narcissistic, self-righteous attitude and his polices; nothing to do with the people who actually voted for him. My question above is actually a paraphrasing of a comment I read on an article about how people on the left are reacting to Trump's presidency and I agree with the question. It IS a double standard.

Both sides love to paint things in black and white when in reality I think the vast majority of America is actually a picture in various shades of gray.  I wish both cons and libs would quit with the namecalling and just for once try for a healthy exchange of ideas.

It's a miracle this thread lasted this long...but here comes Zombie-Havoc starting crap.

It's funny that the side that cries "tolerance, tolerance" ab-so-lutely hates to hear, see, read, even think about anything that goes against their world view. And if you do? Well, you're a racist, bigoted, misogynist pig. Hmm...

I wonder what my wife would think if she knew how racist and misogynistic I am?!?

and here is the part most of the folks who rely on the media for their information miss - Trumps ban seeks to remove "those who engage in acts of bigotry, or hatred and those who would oppress americans of any race, gender, sexual orientatuon." None of the networks managed to read the order and actually present what its goal is. Kinda shameful on the major media outlets.

The other facts lost to low information mainstream media folks is US law currently rejects immigrants on the basis of being drug abusers, nazis, those likely to end up on welfare, health concerns and 'moral terpitude. Should we remove these bans on folks from these classes?

I'll admit that I came at this a bit...inappropriately. And I'd actually delete those posts if they weren't quoted in exact33's replies already.

My approach to this topic differs daily. However, based on following Trump's campaign for the last year and some of the people he has chosen for his cabinet/staff/inner circle...I have just have a lot of issues with this whole thing.

I will say, though, that I have never viewed those on the right or republicans as just being racist or bigots. It has nothing to do with that. I have argued, discussed, agreed, disagreed, fought with and made up with best friends who are die hard, hard right republicans/conservatives through Bush v Gore, Bush v Kerry, Obama v McCain and Obama v Romney. And had the republican nominee this time been just about any of those various contenders in the primaries, I would not have the same feelings now. I mean, I would be grossed out by Cruz, but otherwise, you know. Some of those friendships are hanging by threads at the moment.

This time it feels a lot different.

What really irritates me is how people will label other people, like for example "Oh only hillary voters would believe that" or "its the Dems fault this shooting happened" It really pisses me off!!!! Its not just one side its all sides that do this. We are all people are we not?

I have friends who support Trump, I dont but i dont wish failure on him. Ive been finding it challenging from keeping my mouth shut as i am constantly seeing political crap on my feed on fb almost everywhere i go

Like, a lot of what is bugging me is how they are now circumventing all of the checks in balances in place.

Like here:

"Senate Finance Commitee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) suspended the rules to advance Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary and Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) as Secretary of Health and Human Services. All Republicans were at the Finance hearing on Wednesday morning but no Democrats were present to put their opposition on the record."

And then, ignoring the fact that republicans went about obstructing Obama in the exact same way as the democrats are now, is this quote:

“Yesterday, rather than accept anything less than their desired outcome, our Democrat colleagues chose to cower in the hallway and hold a press conference,” Hatch said Tuesday in a statement.

The Democrats were "boycotting" that hearing.  What are the Reps supposed to do, wait until the Dems feel like playing ball again?

And remember who invented this "ramming" crap, our old buddy Harry Reid.  Harry Reid is the father of making up rules as you go.
