  • Oh brother, can we dispense with the melodrama?

    I was reading this:

    http://www.cracked.com/blog/a-letter...fter-election/

    and honestly I couldn't help laughing. I can understand being disappointed but the hysteria over this is a little much. And I've been seeing stuff like this all over the net and even in the workplace. Now I can understand the election being a disappointment but we as a people really need to stop acting like the world ends when we lose an election. I've said before that the office of President isn't a dictatorship and that neither Clinton nor Trump could be as destructive as alarmists claim. All this crying is for nothing. You lost. I won't mock you for it but I will encourage you to be a little more adult about it. It's not the end of the world. There will be more elections and in the mean time you still have a voice. I for one would love unity so if you'll stop calling me a deplorable I would be happy to reach out because I'm getting tired of partisanship too. But you need to stop acting like the world ended, move past the anger, and meet us as equals. With mutual respect comes mutual progress.
    A new life awaits you in the off world colonies; the chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!

        The human brain has been shrinking and other signs of neoteny increasing for thousands of years due to self domestication. At the same time IQ has been slowly increasing. What we are witnessing is the emergence of a highly intelligent juvenile form of human being. Think perpetual adolescence.

        It should come as no surprise that the idealism normal associated with youth where emotions trump reason are extended through adult life. What appears to be hypocrisy is just the normal confusion of immature brains.

            I guess everyone forgot about Texans wanting to secede.

            Personally I don't have a problem with it. Let people be governed the way they want.

              California can't generate enough electricity on its own. Or manage its economy. Nation-building in the land of granola would be a heavy investment.
              Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                    That's only partially correct... California is going to get more stoned... they already are there.

                      You won't have that.....all it takes is cutting SoCal's access to water from the other states......if the DPRC stops at the border, then you're totally screwed, since you have an unsustainable population trying to make a liberal paradise in a bloody desert.

                        Plus without the electricity they're buying at a sizeable mark-up from other states, they couldn't pump the water they do get.

                        California is on life support. When the money runs out, the plugs get pulled. And they are relying on Federal charity for the money.

                              Provided the lights stay on and your state doesn't go bankrupt.

                              Or they start pumping your water to the thirsty in LA.
