The Trolls are Laughing Their Butts Off. Stop Your Tantrums Over Hillary.

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)

WANT a RAISE- TAX your BOSS at 1950 & 60's TAX rates

The 1950's and 60's seen the greatest growth in middle class incomes and numbers in the history of the world.

Don't Blame Lincoln; Washington brought US the confederacy!

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.

Obama should not be allowed to finish his term and he needs to leave NOW.

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.

41 Years this 30th April VIETNAMESE army DEFEATED AMERICA'S military

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.

True story on deficits

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.

Why Democrats not Republicans - Unemployment/ Jobs

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.
