    He was not my first choice. I could not see a scenario in which i vote for him in 2016. The reason we got him because the left became arrogant and illiberal. His main selling point is not bowing down to the cosmo bumpkin elite.

    Hillary would've been status quo.

    Trump is just showing us non-political figures should not be umm...politicians? The people that voted for him because he was a great "businessman" is like someone trusting a lawyer to do surgery on them because same?

    Yes the other option was Hillary. And she's objectively better. Stop with the false equivalence.
    What does that even mean?

    I don't think Hillary is objectively better.

    I think both are objectively reprehensible people. That's not a defense of Trump and I'm not a Trump defender. I just think all politicians at the highest levels of power are pieces of **** who have used our system to benefit themselves instead of the people who put them in power while keeping the world mostly uninformed of the facts and the people mostly unaware of how much they've f***ed us all over.

    Hillary was not objectively better, she was all the worst elements of the status quo magnified x10.

    War hawk, blatant lier, corpretist, corrupt as f***, etc, etc...

    People took a risk on an unknown in Trump and lost, but they only did it because Hillary is a known sack of corrupt s***.

    Really, anyone mad people didn’t vote for Hillary, your anger is misdirected. You should be mad at Hillary and the DNC for rigging the primaries and making people choose between two different flavors of s***.

    Of course you were. You always are. Replies like these reflect poorly on the rest of us not on your level to understand your points. We apologize.

    "not bowing down to the cosmo bumpkin elite"

    ^^^ to a reply (mine) in confirming in the All Star thread what the internet is blowing up with concerning Fergie's absolutely weird rendering of the National Anthem after I said you just can't "experiment" with it like that.

    Yeah I'm serious and so was scnottaken. Would you mind re-phrasing your thinking there with just those two examples I gave so I know what you were talking about? WTF is "cosmo bumpkin elite"? Urban dictionary has no clue either. And what did you mean with, "Recite the first. Shoot 2 Uzis into the air. Way more awesome."

    Short attention span? It was from right above referencing your often cryptic (weird even) replies which then it becomes like pulling teeth to find out just what you're saying. Someone else commented on it so you go here.

    I went here:

    "what did you mean with, "Recite the first. Shoot 2 Uzis into the air. Way more awesome."

    Now your turn. How about translating your stuff?
