I split my ballot twice actually: a Green for President, and a Republican for coroner. I had trouble understanding why coroner is an elected position, but now that I remembered the dead vote here it totally makes sense. Either way, I was pretty sure the dead would want the GOP doing the slicing and dicing.
Trump says North Korea is China’s problem, which is literally the safest thing you could say. And China’s leaders are adults who know Trump says offensive things now and then. China will pursue its own interests, and none of those interests involve going to war over some words. Likewise, other leaders are adults too. They won’t change their foreign policy over some insults.
Normally alcohol would not be a risk factor in picking a president because usually both candidates are social drinkers. But Trump has never had an alcoholic beverage while Clinton tells us she enjoys social drinking. Having a few social drinks is not a problem unless you plan to drive a car…or make a nuclear launch decision. If we don’t trust a social drinker to operate a motor vehicle, can we trust a social drinker to manage a nuclear arsenal?
If you have ever drunk-texted, or received a text from someone who has, you already know how much “social drinking” can influence decisions.
Sure they do. They think she was in any part good for the country. For that matter, they might think the good of the country entered her decision making at any point. Compared to reality, that is a halcyon image.I don't think very many people had halcyon images of her. We did what these days in politics is apparently unthinkable - set aside our misgivings about her to recognize that electing her was for the greater good. Even if the greater good amounted to nothing more than assuring Latino schoolchildren aren't bullied because of their race, and that girls don't have to put up with being grabbed.
"It won't be so bad" is what they tell you when they grease up your rectum.
