The Political thread is absurd. Clearly they are oblivious to why Clinton lost the election (other than the basic fact that she was a flawed candidate who didn't have a squeaky clean past) and the fact that rural America was able to vote. They wouldn't know anything about those folks though because they don't get out of their basements and are stuck at the keyboard. Never mind that some families can't even afford the internet and therefor are not interacting with middle America.

A few months back I was having a conversation about a favorite movie my family watches with a kid in my child's class. He had never seen it and when I mentioned it was on netflix he calmly told me that he did not have netflix because they couldn't afford the internet even though his dad worked three jobs and his mom worked one. I sat there feeling like a complete ass. So, while they type away, watch TV and color in their fancy coloring books, there are people who are living in the real world and that real world isn't always peachy. Shaming people for voting for Trump for any reason and claiming that means their values are f**ked up is one of the most privileged f**king attitudes I have seen expressed. Maybe these people don't even feel that Trump would "fix" anything for them, but since they have been largely ignored for quite some time now, maybe having a f**king voice mattered to them. Suggested their voice is uninformed, uneducated or wrong is insensitive. That attitude certainly is not going to make that group of people feel valued.

Also, important to note, America doesn't typically elect the incumbent party after 2 terms. There are exceptions to this. George H.W. Bush being the most recent exception to this and gaining a third consecutive term TWICE since 1828 for the Democratic Party. FDR was the most recent of the democratic party, and that might be worth a google search if you don't know that piece of history. This likely contributed to Obama not doing as well in the 2012 election as he did in the 2008 election. However, while incumbent dems often see a loss in votes during their run for their second term, Republicans often do BETTER during their second term.

It might be worth considering why this is and what dems are doing wrong.shutup

Why bother to discuss anything with nuance or what Clinton did wrong when you can circle jerk about how Bernie Bros, the "Protest Vote," Gary Johnson, and everything else under the sun OTHER than Clinton caused Clinton to lose. And obviously, trade, foreign policy, economics, history, establishment, money, budget, how people in rural areas have to pay more for health insurance? Who cares, Imirite? If they were smart they would move to a city or suburb and start posting on FJ, if they are female. If they are male, well, they are SOOL, as FJ hates men with a passion.

It was Comey. Obviously. All his fault. /s

Also, to the poster who got banned for discussing Russia..go you!!! I am getting the impression our Italian member of the echo-chamber believes it is me???!!!! Or maybe there is someone's else. Whoever it is, I wish it was me. BTW, nobody needs to tell them how Clinton was a flawed candidate. She is no longer a concern. Seriously, she is not. She lost. Yet, if you are left wondering how this happened, look further than Comey. If you are unable to do that, you are truly lacking critical thinking skills and rather idiotic. You can adore her, but if you think she is without many flaws, you are a moron. If you expected everyone to look past those flaws, you are a moron.

Also, if you checked yourself into a mental hospital because Trump won, you need to remove yourself from your echo chamber and talk with real life people. I bet there are Trump supporters out there who will treat you with kindness and love…if you give them a f**king chance. Or don't and be hateful….your choice I guess.

I've been away for a while and decided to check FJ since all the election furor has died down. What did I find? A whole lotta nuthin'. Nothing new at all. Same old posters talking about the same old things. A few goofy things a fundy or two will do, but the chatter dies off after a page or so and they are back to the same old same old. 

 

Oh yeah, there is a huge paragraph now at the top begging people to join their food blog. rofl Can someone shoot this poor place and put it out of its misery? 

Buh-bye, FJ

I haven't been on FJ due to lack of time and being out of internet half the time myself but Trump filed bankruptcy 6 times He's been married 3 times. Yet GOP regards him as superior. Even so, he seems more ID party than GOP. Him and HC are their own brands. Both have flip flipflopped on issues I still don't get what made Trump qualified. It's the 2nd time a DEM won popular vote and lost the election. I don;t know if we can post links but there are dozens of reasons Ttrump should not be President. Given that I would rather have him than ROmney or Palin. THis was the craziest election I have seen Unless you live in the US you may not get why some of us feel Trump isn't qualified.

I don't get why they have any of those off-topic personal blogs. It's a message board about a pretty niche topic, but some of these folks seem to think it's a sprawling lifestyle brand. Is there some reason they can't get their own tumblr accounts or something? Do they not know about the rest of the internet? I only ever read the titles of the "personal blogs" when I'm scrolling on the main page, but they always sound so boring and self-indulgent.

This so much. I think a lot of people felt this way. In fact, I wish people would think about this exact thing and realize that Palin and Romney are NOT Trump. Romney is so establishment GOP it makes me feel like I am going to throw up and Palin is Palin. I mean, it could have been CRUZ…not establishment, but also bat shit f**king nutter. No thanks. I don't think the GOP likes Trump and since the GOP is a hot mess (DNC is as well) I am willing to high five him for making the GOP scramble and look at what they have done wrong. DNC absolutely needs to do the same.

I really don't care about Trump's divorces and his bankruptcies are small in comparison to his successful business dealings, so I think that point tends to fall flat with a lot of people.

Here is to 2020, good candidates, and America being okay until then. Maybe things will turn out better than we think. Maybe not.

I don't think FJ hates men. Many are married to men. And they also supported Sanders. Like myself, FJ hates control freaks and especially that operate and manipulate under the guise of religion. If the Funds don't want to get picked on they should make their lives private.

 

I bring up Trump's past because GOP is always trying to dig in the DEM closets. Hey look in your own closet. How many skeletons would tumble out?

I am all for racial justice and justice period. I just fele BLM isn't the right way to get justice. They are way too anti-cop.  Neither the law nor the minorities want to take responsibility and it ends up being tug of war solving nothing.

Another fun thing to see, the banning that happens whenever anyone doesn't agree with them entirely.

The interesting thing I have noticed as of late is they seem to believe they have banned me more times than they have actually banned me. Which makes me question how honest they are really being, because in this situation, they are clearly lying.

I understand this. I also understand the sentiment of not loving law enforcement. However, I also hate the idea of being outright and unabashedly anti-law enforcement. I know we are talking about people in this respect, but the stories of law enforcement shooting dogs is something that has always bothered me. Traffic stops and the use of power during traffic stops. I get why people have a general distaste.

But, as you said, it seems as if nobody wants to take responsibility and admit what is wrong within their own groups, but rather what they see as wrong in the other groups. There is no reflection on their own issues (from either group) and therefor, how the f**k do you expect things to change. You want the other group to have some self-reflection, but refuse to do so yourself? That sounds like a wonder way to build relations. uh
