The rules and guidelines will continue to be enforce. I have felt very strongly many times here and found upon reflection that taking the high road was best.

So, I will address Mr Trump as Presdent-elect and as President come this Jan 20th.

Excuse me now, I have to go throw up, my colon has a blockage causing a back up.

We''re not in the military. False equivalence. Hmm

There is a standard in the military which IS directly applicable. We observe OUR standards to avoid becoming THEM. I will always seek truth, express myself, and fight oppression - but I will do so with dignity and honor, even if my opponent does not. I will not become them.

You're classy, I'm not. I'm a simple blue-collar guy with a street-level mentality. (After all, my parents were Republicans smile )

I say, fight those mean, nasty, cheap and chintzy, stingy CONservative bitches and get every last one of them to scream "Uncle!"

He's already ditching the press corp, skipping briefings, tweeting about the intelligence agencies, etc.

I'd put the odds of a full four year term with none of the above at 10%. I think the odds of assassination are very high: Hijacking the Republican Party and getting elected is a huge troll (in the internet sense, not the fairy tale sense). The person who does it is an even bigger troll, and there have to be hundreds of people who want that kind of notoriety. (Not me, of course, merely an observation.)


If Litvinenko had survived, his views on Putin's intentions toward President-elect Trump would be very interesting.
