Sure, subby, hang those morons out to dry.  And what about the low-income, struggling Americans who didn't vote for President Pussy-Grabber?  Who voted, gods-be-feathered, for Clinton?  D'ya think there's any practical way to separate the two groups and treat them accordingly?

Democrats have zero leverage to stop anything. It doesn't matter what we think about trump voters. They voted for stiggin it and by God they are gettin stuck, along with everyone else.

Forgive me, but I've just spent a bit of time on the World of Warcraft forums and now my brain is broken.  But you are joking, yes?  Since Venezuela manages its affairs rather less well than Trumpfenfuhrer manages his hair...

If I was serious I would have included a bit more context

Like I am doing right now

And when they burn, so may the entrenched congresspeople from their areas, who let this shiat happen.

/and that may also be a good thing.

Thank you.  As I said, my brain is broken.  The WoW forums often have that effect on people.

I think an IQ test would be a good way to start,
I would also check to see if they had developed the valuable human skill of empathy.

"I understand what he's trying to do, but I think he's just not stopping to think that there are people caught in the middle he is really going to hurt," said Ms. Feltner, 57, who was a nurse for 25 years and voted for Mr. Trump.

You don't understand what he's trying to do or you wouldn't have voted for him. And he's "not stopping to think" about people like you because he doesn't give two shiats about people like you.

This bears repeating.

He treated his candidacy like he treats any of his tacky products in that he views the voters the same way he views his customers.

If people would've actually done some research on the guy to see how he is instead of buying all the sappy promises and platitudes he was selling to them, they might have realized that the man is nothing more than a con-artist just like he's been his whole life.

A lot of them like to say the rest of us have to learn to accept that we lost this election, but the irony is that it applies to the people who voted for Trump, too.

Not to mention the people they demonized for being refugees . . . .

Except the rest of us will also get caught in the fire, and those lawmakers by and large won't face consequences. Most people dumb enough to vote for Trump the first time will just blame democrats and liberals for anything bad he does and keep voting straight-ticket R.

We have to run this society DESPITE them. There will always (at least for the foreseeable future) be morons trying to break the country they depend on.

Exactly.  Let them sit in their shiat  and broken toys for a few years.  It's well past time they learned just how little the GOP actually cares about the citizens of it's country and that lesson needs to stick.

FARK YOU PEOPLE!

WE TRIED TO WARN YOU, WE'VE BEEN TELLING YOU FOR THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF THAT TRUMP DIDN'T GIVE TWO WET FAR TO ABOUT YOU.

But did you listen? No. You wanted a farking baseball cap and wanted to kick the Brown people out of the country.

Anyone with the sense that God gave a turd could see that Trump was going to Fark you over like he farks over the people he claims to like.

SO ENJOY THAT FARKING BED YOU MADE. AND DON'T COME CRYING TO ME.

As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

Yeah, me either.

When I see them begging for change at the stop light, I'm gonna hand them one of those notes that look like a 10 dollar bill when folded up.  They'll open it up to discover the message inside............"but her emails".

"I understand what he's trying to do, but I think he's just not stopping to think that there are people caught in the middle he is really going to hurt."

No, sweetie.  You're not in the middle.  You think you're in the middle because the republican party for the past 30 years has been telling you that people who need help from the government are lazy leeches.  But what they are are honest, hard-working good people like you in bad circumstances. You are exactly the person you voted to take subsidies away from while thinking it was the fictional "welfare queen".

One of those proposed cuts would kill the Legal Service Corporation, which funds 133 civil legal aid programs in the 50 states at a cost of $385 million. That funding stream makes up 40 percent of the budget for Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, whose lawyers saved Paula and Joe Frye from losing their nine-acre home.
The Fryes, who live in Warner, had missed a $14 tax payment four years earlier. They learned that their property had been put up for auction only when a man pulled up to their home and Mr. Frye asked him what he wanted. "The man said he wanted to look at the land for sale," said Mrs. Frye, a retired turkey hatchery worker.
They were unable to resolve the unpaid bill themselves, but the land was sold at a county auction for $5,000. The Fryes could not match that, or afford a lawyer.
Only when they turned to Legal Aid did a lawyer there discover a technical flaw in the county's handling of the tax arrears and the Fryes got their home back.


Ah,a perfect example of the Liberal Bullshiat Story (LBS). Common in most newspapers, but most common in the NYTimes.
