Its at 244 to 209 at this moment in favor uv Trump. :shock:

I'm watching NBC. Chuck Todd iz doing hiz best to keep frum pooping hiz pants. You coud see it wen Florida started looking good for Trump.

I believ we started on the path to Idiocrasy wen Reagan got elected. Then Bush Jr. got us on the road. Prezident Trump puts us on the expressway. We're screwed.

My nephew kept telling me about it all night. His mother sent him a gif of Bugs Bunny sawing along the boarder between Canada and the US, and letting the US fall off the Earth.

Probably not a bad idea. Or bild a wall!

I think it wuz in the Firefly Fan Forum that I predicted that Hillary woud pik Bernie Sanderz or Elizabeth Warren az VP. My thinking wuz that they hav the pizzaz to fire up the voterz.

Didnt happen. She pikt Kaine, a virtual unknown nationally.

At the time, I figured 'who am I to question it?' I'm no political expert. The insiderz must no way more than me, so maybe therez more to Kaine that will be revealed during the campane that will help win the election.

Also didnt happen.

Az competent az he may be at governing, az nise a guy az he iz, az completelly he fillz in all the Democratic check boxez for an electable 2nd banana, there wuz nothing to get excited about. No fire in the belly, no media magnetizm.

Now that its almost sertain that she lost (its 2 am and they havent called a few states yet), I get to be the expert. Hillary and her entire team, including Obama, shoud hav seen how thingz were working for Trump in spite uv being totally agenst conventional wizdom and realized he wuz on to sumthing.

If you go to Whitehouse.gov you can write an email to the prez. Remember the good old dayz after Obamaz first win? There wuz a palpable atmosfere uv optimizm - partly a reaction to the gloomy financial situation I think. The smart guy wun for a chanje and look! He'z asking us for ideaz!

Far az I can tell, it didnt work.

Havent sent anything in for yirz, but this morning I felt the urje to giv it 1 last try:

Dear President Obama,

I don't know if you noticed that I stopped trying to contact you some time ago. It's mainly because I never got any response to the great ideas I was sending thru this form.

I suppose you and your people were just too busy.

A big problem that has always plagued human civilization is that good ideas don't tend to float to the top. Instead, whatever the form of governance, new ideas are usually ignored, if not actively suppressed, especially when they don't jibe with the current mindset.

Back in March, you gave a press conference about Trump becoming the Republican nominee - your main point being that it's not your fault.

True, to at least 99%, yet still, here we are: President Elect Donald Trump.

Horrible. Absolute disaster. Clearly, the entire system failed. I'm sure you feel terrible. You will be wondering for the rest of your life if there was something you could have done that would have prevented this.

Although I am as shocked as everybody, I have an inkling of why it happened. And I mean besides the nonstop Republican efforts to thwart everything you did and stood for.

Like me, many of the Trump voters must feel that the entire system is not working for them. They feel they have no voice in this country and are getting very little of the prosperity being generated. No shortage of proof that us ordinary citizens were being bypassed after you drug the nation out of the ditch Bush drove it into.

Just in general, I think if you'd concentrated on raising the minimum wage to 15$ per hour beginning at least a few years ago, we would not be in this mess now. Certainly it may have been impossible against the Republican obstructionism, but still, maybe if you'd put up a big fight they may have lost credibility with many of the people who just rejected Hillary. Another thing is that you should have bragged often and loudly about your accomplishments. You did many great things, but just ask the average citizen if they can name them. As creepy as it may feel, Trump has proven that there is no penalty for boasting.

I still think you're the greatest president ever and now I'm worried that your legacy will be dismantled. Even if the pin head Republicans find a way to get rid of Trump before he takes office, with Pence as President, they will surely do pretty much the same thing and there will be nothing to stop them.

Now I am wondering if there is some way for you to aid me with one or more of the ideas I sent. Political connections, administrative help, money - anything that makes it more than just me.

In fact, way back in '08 I sent you a package with stuff for The Nooalf Revolution. The only thing I always needed was publicity for it, so just a mention from you could finally get that buggy rolling. There's no telling where I or the whole country or the world would be now if you'd just said 'nooalf' at a press conference back then. And imagine if you'd worn the T-shirt! The opportunity is still there, even if it can't have any effect on the current situation. Another idea is the Gun Incident Tax - not as fundamentally important to civilization, but it is the solution that the gun control activists need to make a real difference. I am completely ignored by them. A word from you would change that.

I have forgotten the other ideas. Maybe you can find them and pick one you like. I don't know. It's your legacy as well as mine at stake.

I'm not sure while I felt the need to try this again now. I feel sick about Trump winning and like I failed to make the differences that would have stopped him. If I had a fraction of your talent to influence people and got somewhere with nooalf 20 years ago, maybe the country would not be stupid enough to fall for a con man now.


Thot I'd repost it here just so it haz a chans to be red by sumbudy besidez me.

Trump doesn't know what he's talking about, but would not admit it even if waterboarded.
He's like General Turgidson without the military knowledge.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

I think he's begging for something to happen his yuge ego won't allow him to do himself - be taken away from his misery. Our misery, too, but he doesn't care about that, not one bit. As little as he actually cares about anyone or anything else but himself, as is obvious in his vicious trolling of a campaign he was as surprised - or even more so - to have won than millions of other people.

Oh yeah, and Jimmy Fallon spoke of what people fought against but what still exists and that kids, who innocently hold no such views, need to be taught to keep it that way and that they need good parents, teachers, role models. And I thought how sad it is that a population has to teach their (ostensibly adult) president those things...
