    Of course. Trump wants an authoritarian administration. He wants to be as close to a dictator as one can get in our system of government. His way or the highway. He doesn't like having to answer to anyone else. You can see that over and over again in his comments on things. Particularly on court rulings.

    I think trump thinks everyone breaks the law often like he does himself.

    Trump didn't sign indefinite detention without trial or wiretap journalists or expand dragnet surveillance or prosecute more whistleblowers for espionage than every other president combined.

    Where were you when the true authoritarian was in office? Nowhere!

    everything the democrats do is acceptable to them.

    As rarely as it might happen, I agree with you on this.

    It's irrelevant where anyone was yesterday. We're talking about this issue.

    We got to this point because democrats didn't care when their clowns were doing the misdeeds

    And Republicans didn't care before that. And Democrats before that. And Republicans before that. See where I'm going with this? Time to move forward.

    Give him time. He's barely set foot in the door! Plenty of time still.

    It will be interesting to see your reaction to things as the corruption continues over the next four years. Assuming his administration last that long.

    That's a convenient way to explain away your silence to Obama's misdeeds…

    Right.

    Because Hillary Clinton gave a couple of paid speeches to a Wall Street investment bank, and ran a successful global charity - it's pretty much her fault that Donald Trump is turning the US Presidency into some sort of weird multi-level marketing campaign for his family business. That we now have a Presidential Administration that seems to have declared war on - let me see here - Mexico; Canada; the EU; the UN; Australia; the CIA; the National Parks Service; Nordstrom's department stores; General Motors; the press; and the entire Federal Court System.

    Yeah. It's all Hillary Clinton's fault.

    I simply don't understand what version of reality it is that you live in.

    The reality is that it is because of people like YOU that we have this sh*tgibbon in the White House. And if this country, or humanity itself, suffers the terrible consequences of his election, I'm going to hold people like you personally responsible.

    Except you have no frame of reference or facts to back up that assertion. You don't know what I was silent or vocal about in regards to Obama.

    Further - we were talking broadly, not specifically. jkcerda was not singling me out nor was I commenting specifically about him.

    Apparently murders are up a good bit the last 2 years (I think 25%). Like any year on year change people will ignore/make hay of it as suits their politics.

    I looked up homicide numbers for 2016, and I found a Brennan Center study that took data up to September and then projected the rest of the year. They found a murder rate increase of 13.1%.

    While I'm not doubting an increase, I would suggest that it's best to wait until the final numbers are in and not rely on projections. There's a reason the FBI and CDC trail a year or more behind in their official tallies.

    This isn't the kind of conclusion to rush to.
