    Boy, this seems downright racist to me.

    Shouldn't she have used an orangutan instead of a chimp?

    I wonder how long his Secret Service guys will be given time off as reward for service above and beyond the call of duty.

    I'm sure Pig hillarys Secret Service detail gets extra pay every time they have to act as EMTs or emergency triage support.

    Since the dominate chimp rises to the top social position, is Jane Goodall's implicit suggestion that Trump will rise to the top political position?

    You don't have to be Marlon Perkins to know how Mother Nature deals with the weak and the infirm. Hillary should be
    very worried.

    Why does the noun 'pig' (one I think may be intended as an insult in the actual context of this post, but it is possible that I am mistaken) take a capital letter, while the proper noun "Hillary" (in other words, the name of a person) does not?

    I seem to remember some soRt of scandal a few years ago when someone called Obama a monkey. Double standards?

    I consider "Pig" part of her name. Not based on looks, but because just like a pig, nothing is ever enough. She needs more power, more money, etc. And I don't believe there is any amount of either that will satisfy her. That's why.

    I want a dominant male for a change. I tired of pussified wimps in office.

    The thing is, agreesive male chimps get nowhere on their own. They foster allies. Unlike Trump, who seems to alienate even people in the GOP.

    Trump is more of the monkey in the zoo flinging poo at people.

    Then Hillary Clinton is your guy! :D

    An apt analogy! He seems to have an endless supply of it too with all the crap he makes up.

    No. That would implicitly suggest that we are all like chimps, and we are not. Perhaps some of Trumps supporters are though, not sure.

    Well Trump sure blows that theory. Instead he is just a rambling stream of consciousness that gets easily sidetracked and derailed. He's kind of like one big long PRSI thread...all over the place with little focus and lots of complaining and negativity.

    The science is settled: chimps and humans share 99% of our DNA so yea, we're all like chimps. Don't be a denier.

    I do not deny that we share DNA, but the point was that we do not all act like chimps, our intellect and culture are much more developed. However, the claim here was that Trump did act like a dominant chimp, does that mean he then will be accepted as leader, no.

    sharing DNA doesn't mean as much as people think it does. a lot of the human genome (and chimp genome) is junk DNA. which never gets expressed at all. Additionally, when DNA is transcribed to RNA, it goes through a splicing process which creates different proteins from a same gene. This is further pronounced on a species vs species basis, producing a lot of genetic variation between chimps and humans. Additionally genes have different methylation sites which can turn off and on certain genes at various stages of development.

    an example, just in humans, is that during fetal development, certain factors (called transcription factors) can activate genes and are expressed during development, but are never expressed after the person is born. this is another process that is way different between chimp development and human development.

    While the 99% figure is accurate, its misleading because it only compares the absolute value of DNA base pairs in a chimp genome vs human genome. Additionally, through evolution, there have been a plethora of gene deletions or insertions that originated in a common ancestor and diverged as the phylogenies of chimps and humans further were separated on the evolutionary "chart".

    so aaronvan is just talking out of his ass as usual

    Polite speech has not benefited us in anyway. Being afraid of not being polite has allowed our corrupt politicians to run rough shod over the American people.

    I actually enjoyed this. And I usually don't like your posts. I have stated several times here that Pig Hillary is basically a man. Not apearence wise but in her manurisims and conduct. She's basically a man with no penis.

    Naw, more of a sexless hominid draped in a potato sack. A real evolutionary dead-end.
