The good news for our Canadian brethren is all the Libs that were rushing there have (as predicted) wussed out & are now saying they were only joking.
Buncha wimps, as Hoadie would say.

It gets better and better: The Libtards were screaming Hillary won the popular vote but as we near the final  official count Trump is a head (again) by 500,000.  Of course there may some more votes from deceased voters in Chicago that could change the final numbers.

I'm trying desperately to "take the moral high ground" now the election is over, but the volume, width & nastiness of many of the posts from those I thought my friends aren't making it easy.

Shamu,
I don't know if you know the poem, "The Rose of Arundel"  It is an old poem, but by gum, (as they said back home), it has lots of very pertinent points in it!

i guess i was raised wrong , somewhere my folks and teachers and even friends forgot to tell me that when you loose you are supposed to throw a tantrum and behave poorly , i also failed to learn that if you believed in your candidate you were to break the law and destroy other peoples property to prove how valid your point was in spite of the fact other failed to agree with you , 

after all these years im just now seeing how poorly i was raised ,

I'm afraid not, I'm not a big poetry fan, my tastes are pretty much Ozimandias or limericks!

im not going to say there is a new world rising but this is worth the read and contemplation - i know there are other areas of the country with such enclaves of thinking ---

Trump Train rides through Ely

Submitted by admin on Sun, 11/13/2016 - 11:37

This week’s headline atop the front page - An election night for the ages - speaks volumes.
Shock waves continue to reverberate around the globe and throughout the United States in the midst of Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the presidential race.
It was a triumph that may know no match in American electoral history.
Indeed, even as the returns began pouring in on Tuesday night, and the raw vote total clearly signalled a Trump upset, many of the TV talking heads were rattling off talking points fueled by faulty pre-election poling as well as Election Day exit polls.
It was as if the pundits were trying to talk themselves into believing Clinton was heading toward a decisive win when the evidence clearly showed the opposite. They were expressing one narrative while the voters were delivering a thunderous and divergent message - one that took hours to recognize.
In many ways, the reaction by the television analysts was a microcosm of the entire race.
One side was tone deaf, while the other struck a chord that truly resonated with the voters.
Trump took a populist, anti-establishment message to the electorate and it was well received, particularly in rural areas across the nation.
The tremors of a Trump victory were felt even in traditionally true blue Minnesota and the northeastern part of the state.
Trump came within a whisker of becoming the first GOP nominee to win Minnesota in 44 years, and Iron Range precincts that often select Democratic presidential candidates by two-to-one margins instead flipped to Trump.
It was a red Trump wave across the extended Ely area, with the business mogul outpolling Democrat Hillary Clinton in Ely, Winton, Babbitt and Embarrass - all by comfortable margins.
Trump even eked out a seven-vote win in Morse Township and scored a seemingly incomprehensible win in HIbbing, where President Obama won by 30 points four years ago.
The question for Clinton and Democrats to ponder is how it could happen, but make no mistake, the seeds for a Trump win had been planted long ago.

Good post A-Square, and in your earlier post, you clearly weren't brought up right if you didn't learn to throw tantrums!  LOL
I wasn't brung up right either!
 
Shamu,
Me no poet either, but saw it in a "This England" magazine and it resonated.
