Washington DC is mostly Black. They won't support a White family moving into the neighborhood. Ruins the neighborhood.

Zzyxxy are you attending in person?

No. I fucking hate crowds, and fucking protocol. I also tend to avoid going to downtown DC. The one time I worked there it was right off the highway with plenty of free parking (I.E. - not near all the touristy stuff and/or capital). I really only ever liked going there when I was on my bicycle (DC is very bicycle friendly). Besides that, I can get a better view on TV.

Yesynot similarly close, but in a different direction

Thats a scary thought. I have no idea where YesNot lives.

I'll compare it to corzine vs Christie; Christie still increased taxes after corzine, but the rate of increase dropped

I swear this election is the most epic troll ever.

This is karmic payback for decades of smug condescension by privileged NPR-enabled misandrist minorities whose leaders laid waste to the industrial base of a whole continent.

That's what they just...don't...get. And when they do address it, it's dismissive, like CNN's Black Racist Van Jones saying "No way this is economic."

If it were economic, they would have voted for Bernie, then Hillary, then Trump. Maybe it's not about race. Maybe some people just don't like the way educated people speak. It just doesn't sound like real people.

For fucks sake. The neo-con/neo-lib elites have clubbed the middle class like seal cubs for 40 years, all the while telling them they should be worried about where some tiny deviant minority is pissing.
They RICHLY deserved this loss.
And then of course, instead of self-examination and self-critique, the disingenuous cunts start with the “Putin ruined it for us” hysterics….
Fuck em’.

That's exactly what I'm waiting for from you. You're spewing your dribble, but not a single word is backed up by PROOF or FACTS.

Why is that??

The cabinet is packed with insiders and billionaires. List the billionaires that are known for working in the interests of the average working person. That isn't giving the government back to the 'people', it's moving it even further away.

But they DID vote for Bernie. Ground Zero of de-industrialized Rustbelt, Michigan:

It is utterly indisputable that in a general election with Bernie Sanders vs Donald Trump, Sanders would have won by a landslide. Every state that went Hillary would have gone Sanders, and half the states that went Trump would have gone Sanders.

The DNC were complete idiots for doing everything possible to sabotage Sanders, and the super delegates demonstrated that they are utterly unwilling to perform their sole duty of making sure the party base does not elect someone with no chance of winning the general election. Hopefully this devastating defeat will teach the DNC and their media allies a valuable lesson. I've seen some indications of reforms, but it is still too early to tell.

Sorry Dude, wrong again. It was economic, and half of the population had enough functioning brain cells to see that the promises Bernie was making could NEVER be paid for.

No, idiot. You're thinking of Trump. Trump cannot pay for or implement any of his promises including
1. Build a wall along the southern border
2. Make Mexico pay for the wall.
3. "If I become president, we're all going to be saying 'Merry Christmas' again."
4. Get rid of Common Core because it's "a disaster" and a "very bad thing." Trump says he wants to give local school districts more control and might even eliminate the Department of Education.
5. Closing the Environmental Protection Agency
6. Get rid of Obamacare and replace it with something "terrific" that is "so much better, so much better, so much better."
7. Knock down the regulatory walls between states for health insurance, making plans available nationally instead of regionally.
8. Rebuild the country's aging infrastructure -- especially bridges and airports that look like they belong in a third-world country -- for one-third of what the United States is currently paying for such projects.
9. Save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cutting benefits.
10. Defund Planned Parenthood.
11. "I will take care of women, and I have great respect for women. I do cherish women, and I will take care of women."
12. Temporarily ban most foreign Muslims from entering the United States "until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on." Trump would allow exceptions for dignitaries, business people, athletes and others who have "proven" themselves. Trump calls for 'total and complete' shutdown of Muslims entering U.S.

There's 12 campaign promises that Trump will fail to deliver.

You think it is hilarious? The more charitable view is that it is grotesquely tragic. After getting fucked by both parties for decades, the poor schmucks STILL hope that somebody, somewhere, is on their side.

Nothing sadder than these Hope and Change 2017 edition morons, following up eight years of whining, by transforming into exactly what they hate.

The government is now packed with Republican idiots, and somehow they think they are now better off.

I wonder if the crowd size in the photos might have been affected by...

...many Trump supporters ACTUALLY at Work?

I thought Trump supporters were all the forgotten jobless, who lost their jobs to Chinese Labor, doing the same work for pennies a day?
