I wonder whether those participating in the "I'm pissed off" so I won't vote for Hillary meme have any idea what they are actually suggesting? If a Republican gets into the White House in 2017, they will have the coat-tails to hold the Senate and House. That means:
One - The Supreme Court is lost for at least a generation, if not forever.
Two - Stopping Global Climate Change by phasing out the carbon economy? They don't even believe its real. (thanks to zapdam for pointing out I forgot to include this)
The 1950's and 60's seen the greatest growth in middle class incomes and numbers in the history of the world.
Canada is doing just fine, thank you. Don't blame Lincoln. If Washington had lost the revolution we'd be part of Greater Canada & slavery would have been wiped out much sooner. Curses to general Washington. Hail to the Queen.
It is clear now, that in his last days in office Obama has dropped all pretense of ever having worked for Working Class Americans. We don’t need more concentration, or rather “transfers” of wealth via trade deals.
This from Greenpeace:
An out-of-control tuna industry is killing sharks and devastating our oceans.
What’s worse? Some of the most destructive tuna ends up on the shelves at your local Walmart.
"The Job-Killing Trade Deal You’ve Never Heard Of: The China Bilateral Investment Treaty," The American Prospect by David Dayden
Excerpt from the Article:
"In behind-the-scenes negotiations with China, the Obama administration is pushing a trade compact that could export jobs overseas and erode worker protections. Why?"
Equally horrific and more secretive than the TPP: China Bilateral Investment Treaty (“China BIT” or more like “China BITe”)
This from CREDO:
Tell the U.S. Senate: Reject the China Bilateral Investment Treaty
Tell the U.S. Senate:
“Reject the China Bilateral Investment Treaty. Say no to corporate trade deals that kill American jobs and give corporations veto power over domestic laws.”

Americas trillion dollar armed forces were routed by ordinary Vietnamese foot soldiers. The supposedly most powerful Military in history went down to defeat at the hands of Vietnam regulars.
41 years ago this 30th of April in 1975, Saigon, the capital of what was then known as South Vietnam, fell to North Vietnamese forces. The event marked the defeat of America to the forces of Ho Chi Minh.
There is a misconception that Republican presidents are fiscally responsible, that they cut deficits and Democrats spend, spend and increase deficits. We would have no national debt if there were no annual deficits, so I examine the trend of the deficits under the various presidents. The truth is that Democrats cut or eliminate deficits and Republicans greatly increase the deficits.
I'm frustrated by Democrats lack of messaging and so I've included truths to show why Democrats are so much better for the economy. Republican Presidents: Eisenhower brought unemployment from 2.9 UP to 6.6 %. Nixon/Ford from 3.4 UP to 7.5. HW Bush from 5.4 UP to 7.3. W. Bush from 4.2 UP to 7.8. Of course Hoover brought it UP, but I don't have numbers. Democratic Presidents: Kennedy/Johnson from 6.6 DOWN to 3.4. Carter from 7.5 to 7.5.
