And to think we in the UK thought Brexit was bad, having Trump as POTUS is just good that its you lot across the pond!!
Maybe we can send the ironically uneducated college students here who seek safe spaces and play doh over to you and you can enjoy whatever socialistic circle jerk you want with them. If you really think being in the EU was a good thing, you really are a socialist twit considering the UK was being hosed with that deal and dragged down by the rest of the union. Smh.

Stating the obvious but "true communism" will never work for humans. Human brains simply aren't wired for it. Communism would be great for a robot society though. :laugh:
You can also substitute in socialism for communism and statement is just as true, just ask the pilgrims when they tried socialism when they first got here how it worked...it didn't. They had to scrap it and set into motion a system more similar to capitalism and they had so much they created outposts to sell/trade the excess products and food.

I really don't get all the hate over college "safe spaces."

Does it really offend you that people have somewhere safe to go when they feel threatened? I mean, seriously?

Actually, yes, when they need a safe space and grief counseling and therapy dogs because their candidate lost, yes.

They need to frickin join the real world. Coddling them like this is only going to teach them nothing about dealing with real, actual bad things that you know, actually matter. It perpetuates the horrible job our nation did as a whole (don't know if the rest of the world is the same) by teaching an entire generation that no one loses and everyone gets a trophy.

You really don't seem to understand the point of those places. It's not political "grief counseling," it's simply a safe place from violence.

I say that having gone to evergreen state college, hippie capitol of the world. No one used them the way that is being suggested in my experience.

And also, if I were a gay frog rather than a straight one, Mike Pence would scare the shit out of me too, and with good reason.

Except....the colleges made all these announcements for these students filled with despair (really? Give me a break, its an ELECTION only) because of the loss of their candidate.

When the candidate in question is hostile to the very fabric of your way of life, frankly, I can relate.

You can elect any number of legitimately terrifying people, you know. Pointing out he was elected does not make it less scary for people, it makes it more.

This hysteria is unfounded. To 99% of people, who the president is matters not one bit in your everyday life.

You didn't see conservatives out wailing and crying in despair and demonstrating in the streets like the world ended when the closest thing to a communist we ever elected was elected 8 years ago. Why? Because like I just stated above. And you know what? To the average American he has barely affected them. And I can say that as someone who did not vote for him.

The man elected is one of the most non-ideological presidents ever elected. Even Obama, after the election said he is not ideologically driven. So, unless you are an illegal alien, he shouldn't scare anyone.

Bottom line, no matter who is prez, life goes on, America goes on. I'm very pragmatic and realistic about it.

I found Obama hostile to my very fabric of life. I put up with it for 8 years. Never needed a safe place other than standing in front of my gun safe......that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Also that is NOT A THREAT. I just really like my "safe place".

If I were a liberal, I'd be crying about losing Congress and the Supreme Court, not Trump. GOP has controlled the House since 2010, the Senate since 2014, and the Supreme Court for decades. Obama has had no major legislative victories since 2009.

For me, watching as the promises Trump has made concerning illegal aliens not be fulfilled will be the first proof that he is working for the Establishment, and was just Plan B in case Hillary failed from the start.

I'm so glad i live in a society where guns arent part of everyday life.
.

Our cat broke a plate in the kitchen one night when we were in bed and it frightened my wife. Fearing a burglar i went downstairs with the only weapon at hand, the pipe off our vacuum cleaner. Fortunately i didnt have to open fire.


My wife proudly named me her "Knight with shining plastic".......:peace:

Pretty sure guns outnumber the people in my neck of the woods and I can't name the last time I've seen a gun. That said, I know where one is should I need it. Guns are tools, no more and no less.

Same here. Everyone has at least one. What so many people ignore (or just aren't aware of), is it is not the Wild West in the U.S. with guns and gunfights brandished and happening everywhere.

The vast, overwhelming majority of gun owners never use their gun and are safe and responsible owners. Nearly all gun violence is confined to pockets of cities and towns, and most of it involves illegally purchased weapons, something that won't disappear by outlawing guns.

It might be worth noting that my home state of Vermont ( which I hope to return to next year) has no laws regulating concealed carry of weapons (anyone can carry) and has probably the lowest murder rate in the country, averaging 4-5 murders a year for 500,000 people. Most of those are domestic violence related and not all involve guns. So obviously, guns are not the problem, and proof that overregulation is not needed.

Ever since the "stand your ground" law went into play in FL our crime has also dropped off dramatically. You are not as likely to attempt a crime when there is a GOOD CHANCE you might get shot..........lots.

I found Obama hostile to my very fabric of life. I put up with it for 8 years. Never needed a safe place other than standing in front of my gun safe......that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Also that is NOT A THREAT. I just really like my "safe place".
And believe it or not, if you legitimately believed the obama supporters were going to hurt you in some way or actually bring back host, the "safe space" is for you too.

For the record, I am pro-gun rights. One of the reasons amongst many I could never write Hillary's name down, nor claim to like Obama. If the President elect claimed electroshock therapy was the goto philosophy for gun-rights advocates, you'd have an arguement.

You didn't see conservatives out wailing and crying in despair and demonstrating in the streets like the world ended when the closest thing to a communist we ever elected was elected 8 years ago. Why?
I saw quite a few actaully. Obama with a "Hitler Mustache" seemed to be the goto one.

I'll also note that unlike the liberal protesters, those dudes were legitimately scary on campus. I've never been engaged unwillingly and most notably, unrelentingly to the level I was when they showed up from a liberal supporter.

I was never afraid of his/her supporters. I was afraid of his government.

Were they going to shock the shit out of you for owning guns? Or maybe deport you and/or family members, hmmm?

I mean yeah, if you were physically in fear, go to the safe space. That's the point. But I doubt you were. There's a difference between losing your gun safe and losing yourself and/or family.

If I were a liberal, I'd be crying about losing Congress and the Supreme Court, not Trump. GOP has controlled the House since 2010, the Senate since 2014, and the Supreme Court for decades. Obama has had no major legislative victories since 2009.
You clearly didn't go to my thanksgiving day party.

@rtwjunkie

There is a lot of hysteria but even you have to admit Trump has no one to blame but himself there. I mean all this hysteria originates from things he said and then defended. He can't possibly ever do half the things he has promised, granted, but he fanned his own flames. (What do you expect from a reality tv star?)

That's a good way to end up dead in many instances.

By the way, I am largely dependent on Social Security, due to an accident, for my livlihood. Trumps plans to curtail it could very much hurt me and I'm no illegal Alien. I'm a white, male, "in power" American who is looking hard for a job, but whose right arm can't even install a cpu in an lga socket anymore. Trump makes ME fearful.

I'm old for reasons. And its the Obama admin that keeps taking from SS. If anything less Government means your SS is protected (as long as people keep working)

Not if they plan to largely eliminate it.

I'd like to believe you, but I'm very skeptical, honestly.
