Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

In Trump's USA right now, it's pretty good to be male, white, straight, Christian, professional, upper middle class.  I wouldn't want to be in any other category, however.  That's an insider's view.  My main issue with him is still the Wall in Texas, which I will continue to resist, as able.  He is, in my view, incompetent and dangerous, but my personal life has not suffered so far.  We'll see where things are in a few months. 

I voted for Hillary because at least I thought she was competent.  She had too much baggage, however, and did not run a good campaign.  Allowing him to win the Electoral College was inexcusable.  But, that's all spilled milk and water under the bridge.  Now, Trump is the reality.

I don't know how accurate it is but I heard republicans redrew districts so they would more easily win elections.
But, uh...well there it is.

Well, of course. Every ten years there is a census, and every ten years the party in power in state legislatures starts gerrymandering the districts to ensure that their party stays in power.  It's been going on forever.  The result is some really weirdly shaped districts that connect communities that have nothing to do with each other, but whose voter concentration is advantageous to whatever party has the majority.  The GOP has been able to do this because they win more at the state level, and it's the states who create their own districts.  Now, there is some constitutional oversight by federal courts, so there are rules to be followed.  But subject to that the states can create whatever districts they want as long as they all have approximately the same number of people (one man, one vote).

That begins to make sense that nearly all the states were red but hillary won by 2.7 miilion votes (or so i heard)

I find this REALLY dumb that there are people in a place very different culturally can have a say in what laws we have to live by. And that goes for me too. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, I mean other states having a say.

So you're not saying that the statement displays a narrow viewpoint or lack of knowledge?
No. A lack of wisdom. a narrowness of perspective. Were those not my words?

Yes, yes... Asmo vs. Davin season 83 is still as fascinating as the day it first aired...  :P

I don't know what that means. The expression just looks... Fake, somehow.

That's what they call "gerrymandering," yes? As I understand it, they all do it.

Oh! He's... Is there a word for that emotion? Like, if he just pissed his pants and was confronted with it and went "Nope" in the most obvious way just for the laughs?

That, yes?  :D

Seems like the Pentagon is getting plumb ornery over Trump's "transgender" tweets.

Quote
Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wrote in a memo to commanders and senior enlisted leaders of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines that the military will continue to "treat all of our personnel with respect."

Dunford said Pentagon policy on transgender troops would not change until the White House has issued Trump’s directive to Secretary of Defense James Mattis through formal channels — not on Twitter —  and the secretary’s office issues guidance on implementation to the service chiefs. It’s unclear when that might happen.
