You must hold your nose when you type, buddy. Better them girls grabbing themselves than old Bubba Clinton having a go, eh? He was fairly unwholesome, indeed. Of course, as we're reminded, Bill wasn't running for president. And as you like to overlook, he did all this in the Oval Office. Sacrilege, indeed! Cover

AP, a word of advice: please watch the video I posted. You'd learn about yourself, and your stubborn unwillingness to listen to anyone. It's a rant by a lefty who'd have voted for Hillary! But he perfectly points out the problem with the political LEFT WING like yourself - and therefore shows why Hillary lost.

I'll post it again:

https://www.facebook.com/JonathanPieRepo...035645189/

It resonates perfectly with experiences I've had with intolerant lefties, during Brexit, the gay marriage vote in Ireland, and now this. Do yourself a favour and take heed of one of your own.

NSFW language!

RE: USA Elections 2016
The violent protests are just immature anguish. Impotent after the fact moaning. More silly but indicative of a dangerous new trend is the idea that somehow the electoral college can be jury-rigged to discard the result and throw a shocked Clinton back into the White House. This happened with Brexit tooo, that the democratic process was neither respected nor accepted by some liberal sorts who have made it their business to overthrow a rare example of pure democracy in the bureaucratic tyranny that is the European Union.

It makes me think that democracy is under greater threat from liberals, who simply fail to understood that there are people out there who have disagreed with them in enough numbers to win the game, according to the rules we all accept going in. Change the rules after, then, so we win, bleat these ignorant infants. It's a disturbing trend, and one I hope doesn't gather any momentum, because if it was ever to succeed, the effects would be terrifying...

I heard Brexit is in trouble. The high court has ruled that the referendum was only of advisorial nature and not binding. The MP's have to vote on Brexit in the Parliament and that would determine whether Brexit is for real or not.

Obviously, this is being appealed or will be appealed and the final decision will come from supreme court.

Now, what happens if the supreme court decides MP's have to vote and the MPs vote to make Brexit null and void. Puzzled

The MPs won't vote against Brexit. Even Corbin got an initial horn then a droop at the prospect. When the idea of a referendum was first put to parliament, the terms were that the people would decide britains future in the EU. Parliament then voted 6 to 1 in favour of the referendum taking places, under those conditions. There's no way they'd try to back out now. But Brexit has become a litmus test for modern democracy, which is all but dead in the European Union. In some far-fetched scenario which sees Brexit overthrown, then democracy will also have died in Britain. ..

They voted 6 to 1 in favor of referendum thinking that the people would decide to stay with the EU. I don't think the conditions were binding on them. However, a politician would not generally want to vote against the wishes of his people as (s)he won't be reelected if he does so. But, the brexit vote was so close and so the MP's might get a feeling that they can vote against Brexit with impunity. Devil

Stranger things have happened.

Funnily enough, Britain didn't have to vote Brexit. Cameron went to negotiate with the EU months before the referendum and he told them, the Big Dawg in the race is that Britain has no control over its own borders. Remarkable, isn't it, that these unelected technocrats told him that this would remain unchanged, and that the European project could make no concessions to Britain, a sovereign nation, in this matter.

Once Cameron failed, the result was always in doubt. British people decided that Britain - and not overpaid and unelected mandarins from Luxembourg and Brussels - should control its own borders, budgets and lawmaking. Seems insane, really, that it required a referendum...

Don't think it hasn't occurred to many! I haven't watched the news due to relentless coverage of this travesty! My eyes absolutely roll to the back of my head thinking of the loons being proposed to fill cabinet positions! We've set ourselves back 50 years! World wide balance is so tenuous; hard to believe people aren't taking this about as serious as a heart attack! Good luck ya'll! "You got what ya always wanted; ANARCHY! Enjoy it!" Puzzled No No Cover Rolleyes
