I detest Trump as much as the next guy, but the poor blokes that have to repair those windows aren't the reason for his existence.

Still, with some GOP bigwigs apparently trying to criminalize peaceful protesting, it's almost like they want this sh*t to happen.

I am still hesitant for what Trump's presidency will bring about, but these extreme-left protesters are absolutely pathetic. I almost laughed out loud at this one young woman who was recorded on camera who went from sobbing to screaming during the inauguration. All the while she's sitting on her bum, and not moving. Way to "take a stand", there. No wonder no one takes you seriously.

And on a more personal level, the destruction of Roman monuments at Palmyra hurts me as a student of Ancient History; ISIS must be stopped.

At the very least they're only getting weaker and weaker on the home front.

Yeah, they're still very much around, but they're not quite as intimidating as they once were.

I think a lot of people are going to be like that if these anarchists/leftist/anti-capitalist malcontents keep up this crap. That's one of the big reasons why Nixon won in 1968.

Not to downplay the severity of this issue, but... does it really take a scientist to tell people in 2017 that apes are basically staring extinction in the face?

Now that first thing, I may not be a Trump supporter, but that is one thing he has done right. Health insurance is important, but that mandate was absolute bull.

Very little if anything since America and Far Eastern nations were the largest one that were part of the deal.

It might have a positive market response in Britain and Europe since that means more trade and economic opportunities in that sector to the affected pact nations. Really just means everything is better for Europe all in all.

The Californian-Texas Republic shall be mighty! All jokes aside, if Cali, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas seceded and formed their own country, they'd have like the 5th best economy in the world. LOL

California voted for Hillary Clinton so of course they'd want to branch off because Trump is President.

I seem to recall a comment or tweet or something that said pointedly that Trump erroneously complained the Electoral College was a sham because Romney won the pop vote in 2012--he didn't--and how does he feel now. Made me laugh.

This election combines recounts and electoral college hate.

2 expert snake hunting tribesmen from India have recently been flown to Florida to catch invasive Burmese pythons.

I think that it's just too late for the python population to be wiped out. If they've been able to adapt for this long, they'll never go away.

Lol! Everyone always seems to complain when the electoral and popular vote don't match up, although that's kind of the point of the electoral college. The country isn't meant to be a direct democracy, it's a representative republic, and some safeguards are needed against mob rule (or else major cities would always determine the outcomes).

That would probably almost be about as successful as trying to get rid of sparrows and starlings in the US. They're technically invasive too...

To be fair, we did/and still do, have native sparrows before that one kind came over. And even then, I believe that the invasive kind is actually a species of finch.

So apparently, Trump didn't ban people from nations that have a history of funding terrorism or terror attacks if he had business properties in them.....Conflicts of interest, anyone?

Yeah, shoulda voted for a President who was going to keep this country as PC as physically possible. Cant say anything, cant do anything without being given a label for it.

That being said, there were some issues that arised from political posts being made in here so for the time being, let's cool down with anything having to do with politics, they're as bad as posts dealing with religion so I wont lock the thread but I will ask that no threads pertaining to Trump or anything else unless otherwise stated.
