What do you guys think the future of the Democratic party is going to be? I imagine there's a serious identity crisis happening for them at the moment.

And probably a lot of people saying under their breath... "What would have happened if we'd nominated Sanders?"

Immediate future:wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mid future: infighting, factions, "moves to the centre" (ie adoption and re-branding of republicans policies.
Long term future:el chapo 2020.

El chapo- an actual billionaire who built successful businesses worldwide without being sued once.

Nine naked Men just walking down the road will cause a heap of trouble for all concerned.

I think that should be Saint El Chapo. Got a nice ring to it and an honest crook beats a Nazi every time.

I'd pay people to vote for him at this point. Not a lot though because the election would also be rigged in his favor.

Trump is, however, the government America deserves.  A truly postmodern fascist in a clown suit, like Berlusconi without any redeeming qualities as many coke-filled parties with hookers.

Hillary Clinton will most likely be the next president, if you look at the numbers.

I have a horrible feeling of dread, though.

Went back over OP to re-read and found this gem. Given the EXACT prediction in the thread title and the feeling Howl had I'd say this is proof that the man from Tucson is in fact the most legit Holy Man since Ezekiel!!  :eek:

Somebody shout out the AMEN!!

Who here can deny the Holyness ITT? Only those already pledged to the lord of blindness!

 :box: <---HOW LOUD DOES THAT TRUMP GOTTA BE TO GET FOLK WOKE!?

DANCE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, AS THE HOLY MAN DO!!
 :sexybeast: ....

WELL OK MAYBE A little LESS HOLY FOR THE KIDS IN THE AUDIENCE! PLEASE!

 :banana: :banana: :banana: .... WOOOHOOOO! YAH GOT THAT SPIRIT NOW YALLS!

:buttsecks:... HEY NOW..!
:bsex: .... WOAH! THEY PUTIN IN THE OVERTIME ON THEY SHIT HUH??

:zombie:  :zombie:   :zombie: WE GONNA GET LIT LIKE A BABYLON BARBECUE UP IN HERE!! AIN'T LIKE A LITTLE FIRE GONNASTOPTHIS!!

 :angrymob: :angrymob: HOLY JUST BE GETTING WARMED UP! BRING YOUR MOTHERFUCKING FRIENDS!!

Yeah, but we all know what happens to Holy Men™ and prophets.   :lulz:

Pretty sure a sizeable population of the US ain't gonna get what they need, either.

Heh. There's a silver lining kids.

Hahaha!

Quote
On November 8, another four states voted in favor of outright marijuana legalization: California, Nevada, Maine, and Massachusetts all voted in favor of legalized use, sale, and consumption of recreational marijuana.

AHAHAHAHA!

Someone let RHWN know that he's a monumental failure.

I would, but he blocked me from his fart-huffing google group.

 :lulz: Maine.  I wish we could see RWHN's meltdown, convinced as he was that he was doing Good and Right and everything he was involved with was For the Children.


I kind of skipped the last couple pages, so if this was mentioned my bad, but on the plus side, our minimum wage is supposed to go up to 15.00 by 2020.  I was surprised about that.
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Falling Away From Me and Paint It Black for me

Enjoy the clean smog coming your way from all the clean coal you'll be mining.

News interviews hilarious so far. Hey Cain, I assume you're hitting the whiskey but when you sober up, how much extra sway do you think this will give the right wings in Europe? I have a horrible feeling it's more than I'm thinking.

Im thinking the right wing in Europe is gaining power for the same reason it is in America. Because it actually tries to understand people and relate to them and persuade them to its cause. While the left lectures them like misbehaving school children from a position of moral authority they barely had to being with, and that they have spent the past decade or so completely destroying while, again, lecturing people like school children for not recognizing it.

Pandering and playing to the crowd is not the same as understanding and relating.

This is true. And Trump might learn this the hard way if he doesnt deliver. He was elected on a platform, and without it hes a subpar meme politician.

 My point still stands. Most of you thought Trump COULDNT win, because you didnt understand why anyone would vote for him. Because you made no efforts to. You are either unwilling or uncapable of understanding how the average person in your country actually thinks and what matters to them.(pro tip: it isnt "theyre all dumb hick racists" but go ahead and keep repeating that. It did you SO WELL this time around.) If you do not fix this you will continue to lose.

Making a problem worse is not how you fix it.

Which is why its going to be so fun to watch SMART PEOPLEtm doubling down on Trump being Hitler incarnate and further alienating themselves from the majority of this country who voted for him.

You know what, you're right. The left needs to rise above the equivalent of the birthers, and the ones who thought Obama was literally the devil.
Trump isn't hitler, he's a bad candidate, Clinton was a bad candidate too, but in my eyes preferable to Trump, but that's in the past.
Now we have one of the two bad candidates as president. So far this one has demonstrated that he is a misogynist, is incapable of coherent argument or taking accountability for what he says.
If he flip flopped so much during the run up to the election, it will be easy to define the things he does wrong as president, . In likelyhood there will be a lot of that. We must now look at this toad objectively, also look at what he gets right because ignoring that could turn the democrats into the tea party.

Plus, as my Ma pointed out, Regan was also completely unqualified (and literally demented) and the country survived him.

What the fuck is it then? Other than the addition of "sexist" "homophobic" "superstitious/religious" and "worthless human garbage" to the list of descriptors?

EDIT:
Oh wait, I know, it's because of that stupid conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton killing Vince Foster

(caring about the email thing falls under the "dumb hick" umbrella)

I left out diehard Bernie bros voting for Trump to spite Clinton, people who are just angry and/or want to watch the world burn, people who are only familiar with Trump as a reality TV guy and not a guy who bankrupted several businesses asn is as corrupt as Hillary, misogynists voting against Clinton because she's a woman, and people who simultaneously gullible and don't think America is great and believe a failed businessman can remedy this, religious groups that consider only the issue of abortion without considering that shitting all over our safety nets for the less fortunate also goes against christian values, and people who just think it would be funny
