Pretty much all of my Facebook statuses since Donald J. Trump became the president elect of the United States.

My Thoughts on a President Trump

Here were all my thoughts after the election up until this point. It's mostly my ranting being pissed off at how shitty Hillary Clinton ran her campaign. Enjoy!

Last night, Hillary Clinton lost to a racist, bigoted, perverted cheetoe. Let that sink in. But we were told she's the best general election candidate. Just so you know, the voters decide that. Not stupid talking heads at CNN. This is what happens when the rich establishment Washington bubble thinks they know more about voters than the actual voters do.

Let's talk about why Hillary lost the election and I will expand upon it later in an article but I'm not going to focus on the primaries. I'm going to focus on the general election only. First, let's talk about some key states she lost. As you know, only the swing states matter in an election. So when a democratic hack loyalist blames you for voting Jill Stein, just shut them up. Some key states she lost are Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan. During the Democratic National Convention, she and the rest of the DNC silenced Nina Turner. How smart was that?You silencedone of the most popular senators in the countrythat'sin a battleground state? That's stupid! In Wisconsin, she didn't campaign at all assuming she had it on lock. Michigan showed they didn't like her during the primaries and they preferred Bernie Sanders, but throughout the general election process, she and her supporters admonished Bernie supporters and called them sexist. Not only that, Hillary thought it was more important to have celebrity backing that substantive policies that would attract millennials.

Furthermore, she refused to come out against DAPL. She lied during the primaries about her positions, why would she not lie now? I'll tell you why her hubris and arrogance lead her to believe that voters would show up for her no matter how far right she went or how bad she snubbed her base.

The republicans have a very cult-like mentality. They will vote for the republican no matter what. Nondemocratic loyal which is 43% of the country can be swayed either way; 43% percent of the countries are independents. Hillary's silence on DAPL secured her fate. I said just two days ago, if she came out against DAPL, she would win the election. But her silence told the entire story.

Now Trump is horrific. I've always said he's worse than Hillary. With a republican house and senate, all the progressives that said Hillary is worse will see. People will suffer over the next few years. That being said, if the democrats in the 2020 election things that they can put out another shitty corporatist candidate like Hillary and win, they have another thing coming. That democrat will lose again to Trump no matter how horrible he is. Remember, Bush was elected twice. The republicans are a cult. The leftists are not. They will only show up for a candidate who appears will be on their side. So all democrats who are hack democratic loyalists, you need to reject any candidate like Hillary going forward.

Republicans like Republicans. Democrats like Democrats. No one like a democrat acting like a Republican or someone who is republican-lite (stolen from Kyle Kulinski). Republicans will never act democratic-lite. When given the choice between a republican, and republican-lite, the republican will win every single time.

Martin O'Malley would have beaten Trump by 10 points and he's the most boring milk-toast, plain, vanilla yogurt candidate in history.

Mitt Romney in 2012 got more votes than both Hillary and Trump. Let that sink in

How People felt in the voting booth:

The country is not necessarily in shamble. The Republicans control the house and the senate which seems horrible, but it's not the end of the world. They do not have a super majority. Just like republicans filibustered everything Obama did since 2010. The democrats can do the same. They don't have to listen to ANY supreme court hearing for the republicans. If they don't filibuster everything the republicans do when they have the power to, this election is the death of the democratic party. Let's see if we have elected officials that will fight for us

There's a lot of talk saying that the white male and third party is the sole reason Hillary lost. Exit polls contradict that notion and in every swing state minus Michigan. Michigan was the only additional swing state she could have won if not for third party voting. That being said, winning Michigan would not have been enough to make her president. According to exit polls, the entire country rejected her to an extent. She did worse than Obama in every single category except white college educated women and republicans. Hillary got demolished by noncollege-educated white women. Hillary only gained 1% of the republican vote as compared to Obama. She moved so far right during the general, was it really worth 1% of addition republicans you thought you could sway Hillary? Click here

Praying we last that long. Got a serious fight ahead of us. This is the first time to in a long time that it seems the majority of America are awake .

We have to consider the lack of education most of our republican counterparts.

They elected a 💩 actor (Ronald Regan)
They elected George Bush (Not much else needs to be said)
And a racist, fascist cheetoe.

Not we have to consider the sheepness of the democratic loyalists.

They voted for a neoliberal George McGovern (who lost to Regan)
They voted for a neoliberal Al Gore and John Kerry (who lost to Bush)
They voted for a neoliberal with every scandal (who lost to a cheetoe.)

Nice job republicans and sheeple. How did those republicans do? How did those neoliberals do against them in the election?

Learn from history or you will continue to fall victim to it.

Dear right wingers,

Why do you hate ObamaCare? ObamaCare was originally proposed by Richard Nixon and a right winged think-tank. So you should love it. I'm starting to think you hate it because a black man's name is on it.


The democratic establishment is floating Tim Kaine for 2020. Don't be stupid. He's worse than Hillary. I guess the democrats want an 8 year Trump presidency

Dear Nina Turner,

Please run for president in 2020. The democrats are stupid and think Tim Kaine, Howard Dean, Corey Booker, Chuck Schumer or Kirsten Gillibrand can lead the party going forward. The DNC is incompetent. They put the world in danger by coronating Hillary Clinton. Now they want to put the world in more danger by giving Trump two terms. Nina Turner, please don't allow this to happen.

-Sincerely everyone

There used to be a literacy test to allow black people to vote. There needs to be a test in order to run for president. If there was a test to run for president, no republicans would be allowed to run LOL

Chelsea Clinton wants to run for a seat in congress. Oh no. Please don't. The Clintons need to be blackballed from politics. No Clintons, no Bushs. GO HOME

I used to think brain surgery was hard. Then I listened to Ben Carson talk.


I'd rather be a person who is considered an unpopular, radical, idealist fighting for change than a popular nobody who doesn't care if things remain the same. Whether or not an issue affects me is irrelevant.

Two times since 2000, the candidate that lost the popular vote won the election. Instead of staying change the electoral college to at the very least changing it from a winner takes all system to a proportional representation system, they say get rid of third parties. Get rid of your democracy and your choices.

BTW, the smaller states have a bigger voice in our elections than the larger states.

California has 55 Electors for 38.8 million people
New York has 29 Electors for 19.75 million people
Nevada has 6 Electors for 2.9 million people

California gets 1 elector per 705,454 person
New York gets 1 elector per 681,034 person
Nevada gets 1 elector per 483,334 person
the smaller states in essences have a loud voice than the bigger states.


So a lot of people are blaming voter turnout for Hillary losing. Let's discuss why voter turnout is low. First off, Hillary Clinton ran the worst campaign in history but more importantly, 33 states have voter ID laws which prevent 11 million people from voting. 7 million fewer people voted for Hillary than Obama. Instead of blaming people for outcomes, look at the reasons for the outcomes.


38% of Americans made less than $20,000
51% of Americans made less than $30,000
62% of Americans made less than $40,000
71% of Americans made less than $50,000

50% of Americans live below poverty

America has the highest childhood poverty rate of any industrialized nation in the world

Flint Michigan still has no clean water.

The American middle and lower class are the third worst off of any industrialized nation. Only the Philippines and Russia are worse off.

Since 2009, 95% of all new income went to the top 1%

America spent $1.5 trillion on a Jet that doesn't fly

America is currently the richest country in the history of the world



Everyone protesting Trump, are you going to fight to change the electoral college system or????

Here's why no one should be surprised by Trump. I kept saying before election night, if Trump doesn't win this time around, someone like Trump who is actually smart WILL rise to power. This guy predicted Trump's rise SIX years ago. Everybody who were BLINDLY behind Hillary, you BETTER be fighting Trump's stupid policies and you BETTER not vote for another neoliberal again. You were part of the problem. Acting just like the republicans, turning a blind eye to corruption and voter suppression and didn't appear to give a damn about people other than yourself. If you actually care, fight Trump every day he is in office and tell the democrats, "I will not vote for anyone who takes corporate money".

A quote from Noam Chomsky in 2010:

The United States is extremely lucky that no honest, charismatic figure has arisen. Every charismatic figure is such an obvious crook that he destroys himself, like McCarthy or Nixon or the evangelist preachers. If somebody comes along who is charismatic and honest this country is in real trouble because of the frustration, disillusionment, the justified anger and the absence of any coherent response. What are people supposed to think if someone says ‘I have got an answer, we have an enemy’? There it was the Jews. Here it will be the illegal immigrants and the blacks. We will be told that white males are a persecuted minority. We will be told we have to defend ourselves and the honor of the nation. Military force will be exalted. People will be beaten up. This could become an overwhelming force. And if it happens it will be more dangerous than Germany. The United States is the world power. Germany was powerful but had more powerful antagonists. I don’t think all this is very far away. If the polls are accurate it is not the Republicans but the right-wing Republicans, the crazed Republicans, who will sweep the next election.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

loaves of challah and easter bread stacked up aside each other, an abundance of food in baskets

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
