The worst has arrived, America. Donald Trump is the presumptive Presidential nominee for the Republican Party and that means millions of Democrats (and even some level-headed Republicans) will have to learn how to cope with an army of angry, overly-tanned Trump supporters. Luckily, there are a few simple tricks when it comes to dealing with those simple-minded dicks.

1. Avoid at all costs anyone wearing a "Make America Great Again" baseball hat.

The hat wearing crowd are most definitely the type of Trump supporters who would rather work through difficult ideological political questions with their fists rather than with their brains, so avoid the red baseball cap the way Donald Trump avoids women over the age of 26.

2. Do not mention trigger words like "experience" or "decorum."

Trump fans do not believe in actual experienced lawmakers being president, nor do they believe in presidents representing the United States of America in a positive light. They do believe, however, that the all day breakfast at McDonald's is evidence of divine intervention.

3. When speaking with a Trump supporter, stand up as straight as possible (straight as a border wall perhaps).

If you can convince a Trump supporter that you might be a segment of the legendary border wall Overlord Trump will build to protect the Stars and Stripes from the "rapists" coming from Mexico, they may just break out into organized and disturbing chants.

4. If a Trump supporter brings up politics, try to forget everything your grandmother has taught you about manners to level the playing field.

Trump supporters are a feisty bunch. If you find yourself locked in conversation with a Trumpist (trendy nickname for Trump supporters) be sure to disregard all civilized rules of polite society as to not intimidate and scare the Trumpist away before you spit the truth about Trump's hefty fortune.

5. If r when a Trump supporter fangirls over Trump's honesty and business success, politely direct them to this video produced by John Oliver.

Not only will it give you around 21 minutes of peace and quiet to reflect on the lowest lows of the radicalized conservative right, but it may also give the Trump supporter some pause before they buy anymore pro-Trump bumper stickers for their cars.

6. When encountering Trump fans wearing any articles of clothing with Trump's face on it, be sure to apply extra sunscreen to avoid the glare from his clementine tan.

While earlier researchers believed the rays shooting from Trump's tastefully tanned face were only dangerous if seen in the flesh, recently scientists have said that the damage can be projected through tacky T-shirts and other Trump related iconography.

7. When encountering a Trump fan, always be sure to remind them that Trump isn't running for "Worst Hairpiece" or "Expression That Most Adequately Portrays The Evils of American Society."

The man is running for president of the United States. Maybe, if we can spread the word that the Miss America Pageant doesn't actually affect American politics, the Trumpists of the world might remember that they are supporting a reality show joker and con man as a legitimate Presidential candidate.

There is always danger when dealing with a Trump supporter, but hopefully these seven helpful tricks can spare you a few agonizing conversations.

The US is a country founded on free speech which means that even if we do not like listening to the garbage spill out of the mouths of Trump and his minions, we do not have the legal right to actually punch them in the face. Thus, by using these simple tricks you can survive your interactions with Trump supporters this election year.

I'm An 18-Year-Old Female And I Will Never Be A Feminist

Honestly, I'd rather be caught dead than caught calling myself a modern-day feminist.
741325

"A man told me to have a good day... I'm triggered." How ludicrous does that sound? Tune in because that is the extent of modern day feminism.

Sure, I think boys are stupid and that I'm probably better than 90% of the male population, but that doesn't make me a modern-day feminist. Now I believe that woman should stand up for themselves, and Golding's quote: "I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been," is by far one of my favorite quotes... but modern day feminism is not something I want to be associated with.

I'm all for "anything you can do I can do better," and "We can do it!" but realistically speaking in some situations, that isn't feasible. As an 18-year-old woman who works out regularly, and is stronger than the average female, I couldn't carry a 190-pound man back to a safe zone after he was shot on the front line of a war even if I tried. It is not anatomically possible for a grown woman to be as strong as a fully developed male.

Reality check: Men and women are not equal.

They are not physically equal, they are not mentally equal. Modern-day feminism is equality between the two genders, but corrupt and on steroids. I support what feminism used to be. I support women who work hard and have goals and ambition... not girls who hate men and stomp around with no shirts on to piss off the public. Feminism has developed into a polluted teaching that young men and women are plunging into.

We are built dissimilarly.

The human brain is literally an organ that is sex oriented. There is a cognitive difference, that singlehandedly destroys gender equality.

I will not spend my time running a revolution against anyone who likes Donald Trump. I am not going to binge watch Trump's twitter in an effort to start some leftist gob of drama. I refuse to be part of this head hunt to attack all Republicans on the newest Instagram post made about how feminism is stupid. I do not hate men, and society would crash and burn without the successful men and women who work together to create what we call the United States of America.

Why, you ask? Why are the 15-25 year olds of our society clinging to feminism? They are hopping on the rapidly growing bandwagon where all the hipsters, feminists and Trump haters reside. It's "cool" to hate Donald Trump. Twitter is a world of liberalism, hatred and fake love towards all. Social media is where this generation is living — and modern-day feminism brews there.

We need to keep separation in the household within roles.

We must raise our children to do what they are best at rather than trying to do something they are incapable of just to prove an irrelevant point.

Women must stand up for what they believe in and be strong in their shoes, while not getting so caught up in what your modern day feminist says she thinks is right.

We cannot let this briskly changing society sway us away from what is going to keep the world working precisely.

President Trump's Government Shutdown Is A Threat To National Security

National parks are unstaffed, but not closed. Americans can visit them without paying an entrance fee, but it is "go at your own risk."

Just as Americans were settling in for the holiday season, President Trump intiated a shutdown of the federal government by rejecting any budget that did not include funding for a massive wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. There is a four-way wrangle between, Mr. Trump, senators who are for the wall, senators who detest the wall, and senators who are clueless about what to do next. About 380,000 of federal government employees(civil servants and government contractors) are on unpaid leave while another 420,000 essential security personnel (FBI agents, Border Patrol, Secret Service agents, airport security agents, etc.) are working without pay. The shutdown began on December 22, 2018, and is still continuing in mid-January, 2019.

Mr. Trump's is asking for over $5.6 billion of homegrown American taxpayer dollars to complete the wall. Neither Mexico nor Central America countries have indicated any desire to pay for it, another promise Trump campaign on. Mr. Trump states that "Drugs, terrorists, violent criminals, and child traffickers are entering our country" with consequences of "drug debts, violent murder, gang violence." Of course, we cannot allow that to happen. From his "state of emergency" and "TEXT BORDER" advertisement, it looks like America is in a war zone.

But are we?

A concrete or steel wall might be practical if there were a stamped of drug dealers, gangs, and violent criminals charging toward the U.S.-Mexico border. The only war zone there is on the U.S. Senate floor, where neither party nor the president can come to a conclusion about border funding. President Trump is also pushing for the establishment of the United States Space Force to keep our country safe. The issue is that if the country can't even maintain a ground force at the southern border, how can there be a Space Force?

On a more serious note, hundreds of thousands of federal employees will be missing their first paycheck. While raising the minimum wage is debatable, receiving no pay is not. This past Christmas, many federal employees, and their families had to cut back on Christmas gifts and spending in general as they face financial hardship. That's not even the worst part. The 420,000 essential security personnel are forced to work for no pay because America cannot be kept safe without them. Recently, close to 21% of TSA employees, who work in airport security, have called in sick. The men and women who work in airport security usually earn an average starting salary of $15.50 an hour. Airports now have fewer screeners and security agents, which entails shutting down security lines or conduct more brief security checks. Longer lines will lead to more frustrated passengers and lateness for those traveling for business purposes. It is very likely that airports will move towards looser security check since impatient crowds of people aren't going to sit still. It is also possible that more people will avoid flying and drive instead-if the route is driveable.

National parks are unstaffed, but not closed. Americans can visit them without paying an entrance fee, but it is "go at your own risk." Bathrooms are unmaintained or closed, there are no rangers to ask for guidance or help, and few if no one to call in an emergency.

The FDA is affected by the shutdown, meaning food safety inspections will be conducted even less frequently, which will increase one's risk of foodborne illness, especially the elderly, those with weak immune systems and younger children.

While the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is still in operation, but the staffing is down to 45 percent, which will reduce their capability to detect and prevent cyber security threats. These individuals already overworked, and not paying them would only decrease their morale, further lowering productivity. DHS was also received one of the lowest ranks in the best places to work in the government, which can lower prospects for seeking new employees to fill vital roles in government cybersecurity.
