During the run-up to the election, every news outlet was convinced, and stated publicly, that Hillary Clinton was leading in the electoral college count.
During the run-up to the election, when the news outlets, the Democrats and the Republicans were convinced Hillary would win the election, the news outlets, the Democrats and Hillary were very happy about what they perceived would be the outcome of the election by electoral college vote.
Republicans were scratching their heads and figuring vote counts this way and that, trying to find some imagined path to Trump beating Hillary, a path they didn't sound like even they believed.
Radio talk show hosts, such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Marc Levin and others sounded very doubtful, hoping against hope that Donald Trump could make a reasonable showing and maybe, just maybe, by some twist of fate, squeeze out enough votes to slip past Hillary.
Alas, it was not to be. Instead, Donald Trump trounced Hillary Clinton in the electoral college. He whooshed past her, leaving her in the dust, coughing and stumbling along in defeat.
And now, the same Democrats who were very happy with the electoral process when Hillary was seemingly ahead, are crying, "Foul! It's the fault of this stupid system we have. We need to get rid of the electoral college!"
Not one single time, when they won the electoral college vote, did the Democrats ever complain about the results. They never even hinted that they might want the electoral college done away with.
Funny how when the shoe is on the other foot...............

Talk about dodging a bullet! This could have been our president! See the love! See the compassion! See the happiness and good will! Look deep into her eyes!
This will be my next year's Halloween costume. It will scare all of the kids from my doorway.

Uh, controversial to whom?
I seem to remember controversy about President BO (the amateur president)'s cabinet. But the controversy was largely ignored by MSM.
Why can they not bring themselves to report news in a balanced fashion? What sinister force causes them to be so heavily biased to the left? Why can't they even admit it about themselves?
Reporting the news is supposed to be about what's going on; all of what is going on. Now days, news and editorial have become so emulsified that it is hard to tell the difference.
There is no reason I can think of why any opinion columnist should not be able to express him/herself in any way he/she chooses, but news journalism should be something else altogether. It should tell a story using the facts of what actually took place. News journalists should avoid telling one story more than another because of the political implications of one or the other.
As Trump builds his cabinet, journalists should report who he is selecting, researching and presenting their background and whatever qualifications they have. They should leave their opinions on their editorial door-step, saving them for the opinion page.
Guess what. One side lost the election. One side won. Donald Trump will be our next president, protests and riots notwithstanding. Live with it.
Goodness knows we on the right side of the political spectrum had to live through the atrocities of the one you guys elected.
Get over it! Opine all you want to, but as one very liberal blogger once commented on this blog, "...he is our president and we should all get behind him." Of course she was speaking of President BO (the amateur president). Now the shoe is on her other foot and her demeanor has changed.
Trumps "in-your-face" selections for his cabinet represent very well the, "we've had enough of the establishment government" group. We're ready for real change and real hope for liberty and freedom.

I saw this election as a choice between a sometimes crude, sometimes politically incorrect, sometimes mouthy blustering CEO and an unindicted felon. I chose the former.
But there were policy reasons I voted for Trump, too. His stance on ObamaCare was my top priority. Illegal immigration was next, followed by taxes, the economy and world trade.
Trump got my vote because he said he would tackle each of those issues quickly and decisively. He said he would work with Congress to get those issues handled effectively and efficiently. I believed him. Blinders on or not, I believed him.
I was as tired of the stupid establishment elitists as anybody, and believed Donald Trump might just be able to overthrow many of them and would at least minimize their impact on the country.
When President BO was elected, I opposed him. I attacked his policies as hard as I could because I thought them to be very bad for our country. I have been proven right on every issue, as far as President BO is concerned.
I intend to hold President Donald Trump's feet to the fire. If he does not make a significant effort to intact the planks of his platform, I will just as quickly castigate him as I did President BO.
I am an equal opportunity castigator.
Already I have heard president-elect Donald Trump seem to waver on one of his platform planks. When he left his meeting with President BO, he seemed to say that he might not totally replace ObamaCare, but might keep some of it.
Not on my watch, President-Elect Trump! If you waffle on ObamaCare, you will be no better than those establishment elitists. They were voted in to do a particular job and they, almost to a man, did not do it. Don't do it, President-Elect Trump! You gained my vote because of your promise to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with health insurance that would be competitive and would be sold across state lines.
That's what I expect you to do. If you do not, you will incur my ire, something that I am certain has you trembling in your boots.
Come on, man! Be who you said you were and do what you said you would do.
America is counting on you!

My father-in-law died recently. He served in the Navy during WWII in the South Pacific in underwater demolition. He was very proud to have served and loved this country to the "Nth" degree.
He always wore his Navy cap. Many times, especially in restaurants, people came up to him and thanked him for his service. More than a few times, people paid his check for him, many anonymously.
He was active in his community, was a very giving person and was loved by many. To him, though, his greatest accomplishment was serving this country in a time of need.
My hat is off to you, Thomas Charles MacKimmie, for your contribution to the United States of America.

|Post Election Destruction|
The people who were happy about his election, some of whom are in the picture on the left, told us to get over it. They said he had been elected, fair and square. They told us we should respect President Obama because we should "respect the office." And because "He is my president."
Some of those same people told us that if we didn't support President BO that we were racists. They said they were unhappy with us because we were unhappy to have a black president. That was patently untrue, but that's what they said.
They told us we should peacefully acquiesce to his election because it was a done deal and he was going to give us "Hope and Change." That he gave us no hope and only negative change was irrelevant to them because it was the idea that counted...the good intentions that mattered.
The very same people who dumped on those who dumped on Obama are now dumping on Donald Trump. They are of the "Do what we say do, not what we do do" crowd. And they are packed full of do do.
Many celebrities warned us that they would leave the country if Donald Trump was elected president. People like Whoopie Goldberg, Al Sharpton, Samuel Jackson, Lena Dunham, Barbara Streisand, Jon Stewart, George Stephanopoulous, George Lopez, Miley Cyrus Cher and even Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg ("Now it's time for us to move to New Zealand").
So why are they still here? It is their collective, right-wing hubris to think we care that they leave the country. I say, "Good riddance. Don't let the door hit you in the bohunkus as you leave."
Whether you like Donald Trump or not; whether you voted for him or not; whether you like his plans for America or not, if you are among those who are rioting, looting and destroying property, you are uncivilized hooligans, unworthy of being called an American. Civilized people don't burn, loot and destroy property.
You are, sadly, being led and stirred up by a bogus, fake bunch of ingrates who call themselves "Black Lives Matter." They are liars, cheats and hypocrites. They don't care about lives, black, white or indifferent. They are a bunch of people in need of anger management classes, who care only for themselves and no one else.
You are not required to like Donald Trump. You are not required to support Donald Trump. You are not even required to say nice things about Donald Trump. But if you resort to violence, destruction and other mayhem, you should be arrested, prosecuted and thrown in jail.
But you are probably too stupid to know that.
