Saw this in my Facebook news feed as a response to a flailing HRC supporter:

The stages of grief:

Shock
Denial <--- You are here.
Bargaining
Anger
Depression
Acceptance
So much truth there.

you have exactly zero credibility here.
I guess you got your answer from Urlik so I pass on this.

if you don't vote, you shouldn't get a say about what you think. go back to trolling the B5 forum.
None of your business what I do. A troll is infinitely better than a rude cocky arrogant like you. Never comment on my posts again.:puke:

I disagree, not voting is as valid a choice as selecting a name. Only Socialist countries and dictatorships get 100% participation.
bragging about never voting in the lifetime of someone who is 53 years old lends (imho) zero credibility to any criticism he might make. so let's see - that's 35 years of eligibility, so roughly 18 elections at the national level he's blown off... sorry, Jeff, I stand by my original assessment. I've always been of the opinion that if you don't vote, you have no leg to stand on to be critical of what is going on in your government. I'm not changing that opinion based on your argument.

So I should vote to bring bunch of corrupt SOBs to power then I am eligible to criticize them. Otherwise, if I don't vote then I should close my eyes on all corruptions. Is that your humble opinion?

Your level of ignorance is jaw dropping. Go focus on repairing B5s. :poke: You are added to my ignore list.

Actually, out of all the elections in my life, this one is the one were that choice makes the most sense. It's EXTREMELY conceivable that someone believes that both parties but up nominees that have no business holding the office and are not worth a vote. A corollary to your argument about non-voters is that voting for a third party is no different than not voting because the vote is wasted. I watched the MSNBC idiots argue that election night.

doesn't matter, Jeff. c'mon, someone who is 53 years old and brags about not ever voting, then complains?! screw that, there's no corollary. I'm not even going to say that was a nice try.

if everyone voted (a pipe dream, but whatever, people are always going to find excuses not to), then people might actually get a govt that is more representative of the will of the people, rather than what we presently have.

they might not be such a bunch of corrupt SOBs if people like you got off your lazy butts, actually did some work to get informed on the issues, and then went to the polls. but you'd rather be lazy, not participate, and then whine that nobody was in the election you liked. I'd call that the ignorant way, and many others would see it as the same.

I'm done with you, Emry. if you truly did put me on your ignore list, you won't see this anyway.

You are truly wasting your time with this guy here. He is producing all this nonsense crap just for the heck of having said something against me. His statement that if you don't vote you have no right to criticize is the most childish ridiculous one could have heard of. Less than 50% of the population vote in any election. According to his humble opinion all who do not vote are lazy and have no right to say anything. LoL! Even if 100% of population would have voted there were no difference at all. The outcome would have been the same. One of the two Mafia parties always win. Voting is totally irrelevant. If you're not totally corrupt there is no way they let you in. These are simple facts this guy doesn't understand. He's a Trumpist. Exactly the same bullying rude attitude as his idol. :puke:

No I'm not. I truly understand (which you obviously do not in any way, Trumpist?!?) what's going on with him right now and he's not alone. Many in this country need time to process what happened. I refuse to be like too many in this country and think that only one side is correct and the other is evil.

While I was shocked at the outcome, I did not like either candidate and I did not vote for either of them (but I did vote). I do not feel a 3rd party vote is wasted, it clearly shows what and whom you support vs showing just apathy for the election (I have that as well). As I am generally apolitical, I do not expect the outcome to seriously change much except to lend credence to people who hate rather than tolerate.
Apart from that, the political parties (on both sides) are too dysfunctional to really enact most of the changes they promise.

I think too many in the media make a darn good living off of promoting the bipolar view. And too many of the masses willingly don the blinders and subscribe to a simplistic "good guy/bad guy" view. Too few stop to consider the big picture and the long term. It's easier and far more entertaining to listen to an 8 second sound bite taken out of context and then feel alarmed and upset.

Ironically, Bill Clinton recently said that the worst prejudice that still exists in America is the inability to accept that someone else has a different opinion than you. If we can learn to bridge this gap, much good will follow.

Slightly OT Op-Ed: ObIslamas Legacy

It's really sad (I guess) that he didn't have a Democratic Congress his entire second term...all those Exec. Orders wisping into thin air.

Fact: Since 2009, Democrats have lost 13 U.S. Senate seats, 64 U.S. House seats, 13 governorships and 33 statehouses.

Wow! What a legacy.

A message totally missed by the media.

Mtech, I agree with most of what you've said. Keep in mind we just had 8 years with Barack and made a lot of gains. Hopefully 4 years of the Donald won't erase them all. 2020 and it could be a new story.
