This is a post from a regular here on Tom's site, who goes buy the name of LEGEND.

"(TRUMP) a totally deranged billionaire. That loves to Tweet anything. Made wealthy from inheritance. Made famous from reality TV. That has absolutely no Governing experience. That avoided the draft with phony heel bone spurs. Has a history of Misogyny. 3 marriages. 4 bankruptcies. Lies 91% of the time. On and on. "

Lets go back to the first post by Legend.

Everything written there has at least a grain of truth to it. And yet, Hillary Clinton lost. Everyone let that sink in for a moment. She was such a terrible candidate that even Donald Trump beat her. Forget all of the 100 excuses. She just flat out was a horrible candidate.

Does the democratic party truly realize what they have done? Heck, even most of the people who voted for Trump didn't like him either. But yet, he is going to be inaugurated as President of the US, and she and Bubba are now relegated to the dustbin of history. Coulda, woulda, shoulda....

Thanks Hillary..because of your arrogance and poor judgement, hello President Trump.

At some point in time you are going to realize that the media brainwashed you. The Republicans destroyed the job market. Did everything that they could to keep it down. Obstructing infrastructure bills etc. Yet the Democrats brought unemployment down to 4.8 %. Now you think a bunch of Billionaires are going to change what made them billionaires. What state do you live in Coalage? West Virginia? Kentucky?

Media brainwashing? What number excuse is that? At some point, the democratic party (and the Clintons) are going to have to realize what a mistake they made. This election was there for the taking and they just flat out blew it.

I don't know where you live, but we haven't seen 4.8% unemployment in my part of the country for decades. Unfortunately, my wife counsels many job seekers and a lot of them have quit even looking for a job. The true rate is at least twice that high.

And you are only partly right...both parties are to blame. Both willingly participated in the mantra of NAFTA, and other agreements which allowed the heavy manufacturing segment to leave the country. But like I keep telling you, Hillary did absolutely nothing to try and alleviate the fears of lower and middle class americans about the economy. If you had listened to her during the campaign, everything was just peachy keen.

It wasn't the media, it wasn't the Russians, it wasn't the FBI, it wasn't voter suppression, it wasn't vote fraud. It was poor judgement on the part of Hillary, her advisers, and the DNC that gave us Trump. If you want to keep trying to blame others, have at it. But everybody who has their head out of the sand knows the real reason.

The uptick in met coal prices has nothing to do with Obama, or Trump for that matter. This happens periodically. The question is...will it last and will the North American steel industry recover from its doldrums.

The rise in met coal prices has largely been as a result of the dynamic Asian economies, not because of anything happening here.

Texas is prosperous and is red. Whats your point? Denver is what drives Colorado, and to a lesser extent the tourism industry. I'm glad for you the 1% elite can afford to vacation in Aspen.

"Texas had the most minimum-wage workers last year, accounting for nearly 13 percent of all such workers across the country, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour, the same rate as Texas’.

Some 452,000 Texans earned the federal minimum wage or less in 2012. Under the minimum wage, a person working 40 hours a week would make $15,080 a year."

Texas sucking on the government tit, while telling America of its great economy, built on half a million minimum wage of $7.25 an hour workers and federal government handouts.

"Hospitals that serve large uninsured populations stand to lose critical funding if Texas can’t convince the federal government to continue helping the state pay, doctors and health advocates told the state health department Thursday."

All of those Texans making $7.25 per hour qualify for food stamps (SNAP). Thus Diane you are subsidizing their employers and the employees with your taxes.

Many states (like CO) have raised minimum wage to living above the poverty level. Thus Employers have to pay the wage and not the taxpayer subsidizing their pay.

TEXAS has allowed some of the worst environmental pollution in the name of (irresponsible) 'prosperity'.

Government support for unborn children? Isn't that part of the problem? What happened to the concept that parents should support their children? Oh never mind....you guys don't care about that anymore. Thanks be to the Great Society programs of the 1960's.

I would agree that access to birth control is needed and necessary. But the idea of personal responsibility now seems to just be a secondary ideal instead of the primary teaching.

The progressive mantra now seems to be...if it feels good, just do it and the consequences be damned. Is that sudden and unexpected pregnancy cramping your lifestyle? No issues, just kill it and problem solved.

The guy next door wakes up one morning and decides he wants to be a woman that day (even though he has a penis hanging between his legs). No problem. And if he wants to use the womens restroom during the day, who are we to judge? And if some other woman in the bathroom objects, we all know she must be a bigot anyway...so who cares?

Little 10 year old Janie from down the street has decided that she is really a boy, not a girl. No problem...start the hormones and get the scalpel ready. Everybody knows that a 10 year can absolutely make life altering decisions at that stage of life. Do you think that maybe she might be rushing into something? Who are we to judge what little 10 year old Janie thinks? It feels good to her, so it must be right. Right?

And progressives think that conservatives are insane....what a strange world we live in.

From the reference in Post 19 that you did not read.

The vast majority of federal money that Planned Parenthood does receive funds preventive health care, birth control, pregnancy tests, and other women's health care services.

Coalage you have serious mental issues if you let the transgender thing bother you that much. Do you see it as an issue or something that Fox News pumped you up on. See how they brainwash you? Nobody else is that concerned or consider it to be an issue. You only have transgender bathrooms on airplanes, is that an issue? Come on prioritize your issues.

The fact that it doesn't bother you at all is of more concern to me. Evidently you could care less about Little Janie's overall well being. If it feels good, just do it and don't worry about the consequences. I get it.

I thought you guys thought that CEO's took the money from all of the major industries, and then some. And killed the unions in the process. Not just the coal industry. Of course its not nearly that simple. Everybody knew steam coal would be killed. The industry, and the miners, just didn't think they would do it this quickly. Automation took most of the jobs.

Metallurgical coal is dying as well. The market in North America can be served by a handful of mines. The export market still takes a good bit of this coal, but the price pressure from Australia makes it very difficult to compete economically.

In any case, some smart guy somewhere (probably in Asia) will eventually figure out a way to make a substitute for steel.

Once again, blow it out your ass. Maybe that extra three millions votes Hillary Clinton got could each produce a hundred dollars to start the funding. I'm am sure the donors that were conned by the Clintons would like their money back and diverted to Planned Parenthood. Then there is always the Clinton slush fund sitting with $2,000,000,000 and nothing to spend it on. You have a mouth that likes spending other peoples money, how about you get out your wallet and contribute to the the cause you believe in using your cash. Grab a movie star or two and get rolling.

Planned Parenthood:

"Planned Parenthood has received federal funding since 1970, when President Richard Nixon signed into law the Family Planning Services and Population Research Act, amending the Public Health Service Act. Title X of that law provides funding for family planning services, including contraception and family planning information. The law had support from both Republicans and Democrats. Nixon described Title X funding as based on the premise that "no American woman should be denied access to family planning assistance because of her economic condition".

GOP Blasts Trump’s Nazi Defense

Republicans are predictably up in arms about Donald Trump's defense of white supremacists following the Charlottesville terror attack.

But are they ready to take responsibility for helping create this climate of hate in the first place?

By defending neo-Nazis, Donald Trump might finally have reached his expiration date with the institutional Republican Party.
