    We all remember this disturbing video of Hillary sitting in a darkened room screeching at the camera like a banshee on 'shrooms.



    That speech was addressed to the Laborers’ International Union of North America, a strong Hillary supporter (at least at the leadership level. We pretty much know now how the rank & file felt about her.) Today their website indicates that they have had somewhat of a change of heart and maybe America First! doesn't sound so bad anymore.

    Sounds like they are trying to make the best out of a terrible situation

    I don't feel no ways tired....

    It seems like people are waking up and coming around to the right way of looking at things.

    Do you prefer Trump's
    And that right way is to investigate illegal immigrants voting (even though not many do and it was the russians who rigged the election). And how we should build dirty pipelines through native soil to create jobs (even though those jobs are only temporary and you're just finding foreign corporations). And to freak out about how nobody attended an inauguration (even though this literally doesn't matter for any reason at all). And to pass tons of executive orders within the first week (even though we b****** about how obama passed too many when he was president).

    Yeah this whole "thinking the right way" thing sure is working out great!!!!!

    How can you verify that illegals aren't voting when the left has pushed NO VOTER ID on us? There is no way to verify your claim. Canada even has positive voter ID for crying out loud.

    P.S. I'm not putting you on the ignore list. You're the only person on that list. I can't take your ________ posts anymore. Have a great life.

    She reminds me of the old lady next door who used to run outside and grab the ball and take it in her house when it accidentally went in her yard when I was playing kickball with my brothers when we were about 5 or 6.

    Not to mention the constant coughing, hopefully she gets the medical attention she needs.

    I'm still amazed by the political paradigm shift that's occurring before us. Just think, a few months ago the Democrats were the party of the working class with strong backing from labor. The script flipped with amazing speed. How did that happen? Scholars will study this phenomenon for decades to come.

    "Working class" works less than management (generally) .. let's call them what they are: the labour class.

    Heard an interview with the United Steelworkers president who said "the union backed Hillary BUT the membership backed Trump"

    I asked this question in another thread, but so far nobody has answered, so I'll ask again.

    Honest question - Logically, how would it be possible for a significant number (in the millions) to illegally vote? Even in states with no ID required, don't you have to give a name and address? And that name/address is matched to the voter rolls. So these illegals would have to use names of people who are already (legally) registered, yes? And by a stroke of luck, these millions chose people who weren't going to vote anyway. Because, when they showed up to vote and were told that they had already voted I'm sure they chose not to say anything, which is why we haven't heard of this widespread problem.

    Or are you saying that they are illegally registering? Even in states where no ID is required to vote, you still have to prove citizenship to register. So, do you believe that these millions of illegal aliens are faking birth certificates in an effort to illegally register?

    Technically the pipeline does not go through any Indian reservations.

    I guess you just couldn't handle talking to people with different opinions than yours, and finally got too triggered.

    yeah that annoyed me so much how the union heads would endorse a candidate that in no way represents what their employees wanted. That happened a lot with hillary, where the heads would endorse her but the people wanted trump or sanders

    the only phenomenon I see is the current ruling party always says they are number one and for the people

    Why are conservatives so obsessed with Hillary? Even the liberals are over it, Trump got the electoral college, let's move on. Sheesh, talk about living in the past.

    Blue collar workers with a specific skillset not applicable in other fields is more apt.

    Of the major candidates, Bernie Sanders was the only true champion of poor and working middle class in this country.

    This.

    Well, Trump's policies are going to create a lot more jobs in the areas of toxic materials cleanup, rebuilding homes destroyed over and over by climate change, and, ultimately, the funeral industry.

    Labor unions and the American working class love President Trump. What's Naomi Klein got to say about that? Probably something like, "When American workers vote for American jobs they are voting against their own interests." Lol, no one is more clueless and patronizing than left-wing intellectuals lecturing the working class on how they should live their lives.
