Oh dear God another "popular vote" apologist! The rules have been posted for over 200 years. You Leftists are like girls who lose and then want to change the rules of the game so you've actually won.

Never before has the media completely coalesced behind one candidate to sing her praises while spending the rest of their time vilifying her opponent and attacking any of his supporters with serious brown shirt action!
The elitists pulled out ALL the stops . . . and it just WASN'T ENOUGH!

They need to shift focus away from Saudi Arabia.

"A Muslim walks into a gay bar. The bartender asks him what he would like to drink, and he responds with "shots for everyone"."

All this trouble and they still can't find the political will to eliminate pension double dipping. That's when a retiring administrator takes another state job for a couple years and then retires from that as well reaping double pensions for life. And of course, these sweetheart deals are coordinated by other state employees in a quid pro quo system with the taxpayer holding the bag.
We need pension reform but it ain't gonna happen while democraps hold sway and that's gonna be forever I guess.
I'd rather see pension insolvency.

They have always been different, but I don't recall such behavior in the generations of our parents or grandparents. Men were less pussified, women were more feminine. The dynamics were better than today, which you can also see in the high divorce rates and the continuously rising singlehood in our society.

This. I've just been harangued by my wife who thinks I'm trash but I've been working SOLID for 15 years without fail. Always employed, always faithful. But I hear how bad I suck and dragged into therapy - I get the long list of stuff I dont do after a long hard day of work.

She likes to work but hates her co-workers, she is miserable, and every damn cent of her pay we pay in taxes so its useless. And with 3 kids and a job she is a angry wretch all the time. Dual income (I dont care which spouse goes to work but it should be ONE at a time) is the DEATH of America. I feel sorry for my kids. This world is a damned nightmare.

If you cannot defend your own fake news. attack the other party of spreading the fake news.

and therein lies the issue- partisanship has replaced journalism
the WAPO and NYTimes are shills for the left as much as the Daily Caller and Breitbart are for the right

Heraclitusstudent says

answer should start by not trying to hide the fact that there is a problem as is officially done in the US

This is a total fucking lie.

You are the one who is lying:

Bush:
"The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. "

Clinton:
“Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing to do whatsoever with terrorism.”

Obama
“We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam,”

This is clear: The entire bipartisan consensus completely absolves Islam of causing terror. Islam is to be considered a religion like any other. There cannot be any criticism of Islam. Any criticism of Islam is Islamophobia and to be banned.

This is absolute BS. Critical discussion is the only mechanism we have to eliminate bad ideas and foster good ideas. If you eliminate that, you give a huge pass to an evil ideology.

Add to this the rhetoric for every attack that now routinely redirects the problem to other sources: weapon control, psychiatric issues, homophobia, etc, etc...
Add to this a foreign policy where our allies - the Saudis - are among the worst exporters of radical Islamic ideology.
Add to this the constant lecturing about 'islamophobia'.

You get a picture of leaders who are paralyzed, unable to wrap their arms around the problem and even attempt to tackle it. All they do is constantly try to sweep the problem under the rug as if hoping it is going to solve itself.

Sorry for your trouble Mick. Dual working parents with kids can be really tough. Women are generally ungrateful and that only escalates when they also earn a paycheck. Wish I knew a grand solution but I guess time makes it easier. Kids become more independent and easier to care for.
Advice: (what works for me)
1) hire a maid. That way nobody has to slave doing housework. Once every other week keeps things reasonably clean even with three kids.
2) date night: bout the only way to keep any romance in your marriage is to plan date nights and do them often.
3) spend some time talking one on one with your spouse after the kids go to bed. Yah I know this can be hard when all you want is to relax but it makes a huge difference in her attitude. Happy wife, happy life still works a hundred years after it was coined.
4)reconnect with guy friends and do stuff with them on a regular basis. This is pretty important if you don't want your life to suck.
Good luck. (You're not alone)

Bbbbut, I thought you and your Leftist buddies were pushing this idea that Trump was a big white nationalist! All the time spent on how fast he disavowed a kudos from David Duke clearly showed how much of a RAYCIST NAZI OMG!!!$&*%! he was!
But now he's seemingly abandoning any pretense of racism, you're butthurt? Could it be because you were galactically wrong as usual?
I think you'd rather he was a big nazi because it might justify your insupportable positions.

Trump is only an excuse.

the real reason they are not attending: they are too EMBARRASSED to show face after all the corruption scandals and being crushingly defeated in the house, the senate and the white house.

not attending only show what a bunch of immature, spoiled children that they are, throwing tantrums when they don't get what they want.
