Wishing it weren't so
Carry on about Clinton.
This interview makes me Hard to believe that Marley's only 11 years old.Reading our interview, I think it's very obvious that Hillary Clinton can be deep and funny at the same time. Sometimes, we expect a woman like her to be really serious always, but I want people to understand that she can talk about deep issues and chocolate, and that's okay. She's a real person—just like I am, just like my mom is, just like you are. She's not just a presidential nominee. She's a friend. She's human! And her favorite black girl book is I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou, which is an excellent choice.
Yeah, I get the love vs. hate thingy, but I'm with you. This should basically be a cheer thread where the ire can be discussed, analyzed and discounted where it's based on fiction, speculation and pure vitriolic misogyny. But let's emphasize the positive, as the negative s**t has been done to death and then some.Ire is different from hate - JMO
Salon makes it clear that people of color not only want to vote for Hillary, they like her a lot better than white people do:Discarding older women means discarding years of knowledge and know-how.
The “grandmother hypothesis” even suggests that older women — and killer whales, the only other species to go through menopause — are biologically made to lead. That’s why their fertility ends, so they can get to the business of being leaders to all those creatures they created.
But there is hope that the invisibility trend is fading.
At 83, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so respected, she’s got a street name: the Notorious R.B.G.
She's been hated since she was a young woman though - by a certain section of the population... Vast right wing conspiracy is right, I think.
That's the phenomenon about Clinton - she is disliked during election campaigns and then liked once elected. Which so doesn't make sense because why dislike/hate her when you actually approve of her politics? I get when that happens during a first campaign but once you know the person is doing their job well and you like what that person is doing, why keep up the pattern?I just want to say I am so tired of people parroting that Hillary Clinton is the most hated politician ever. As if this was a fact and immutable. Don't people remember when she was Secretary of State and had approval ratings of 66-67%? That's higher than most politicians ever achieve. I believe that it's higher than Obama has ever had (But I haven't noted his for the past few months).
This is assuming that a person's "approval rating" is a even real thing and not pollsters' educated guesses based on inputs and modeling that are not an exact science.
With no disrespect for Angie or @BigB08822 or other FSU posters in LA....This board is rigged - RIGGED - I tell ya.
I swear - that is the same thing I was thinking last night - when Hillary WINS. Those nuts yelling lock her up will target women and minorities. We'll start seeing KKK rallies. They'll probably all go out and buy guns because they believe the bull about Hillary wanting to take them away.
The same thing was said about Obama winning.
You did well.I replied:
"I WILL always defend Hillary. And I do watch the crap on t.v. Hillary's commercials contain Trump's own words. Trump’s opinions are not facts. That is the problem. He does not have the right to try to run the country on his biased opinions. He is a pathological liar. Every day there is new evidence that he should not be president and his supporters don’t care. Every day there is another group that speaks out against him. Every day there is new evidence of his bad, possibly illegal business practices. I’m certainly not a bleeding heart liberal. This is the first presidential election I have ever been this interested in and had such intense feelings about the other candidate being a danger to this country and the people. He spews hatred everywhere he goes. He misrepresents (nice word for lying) Hillary’s policies and the people at his rallies cheer. He has no sane, rational, workable policies. His own running mate could not even defend him. He has the attention span of a goldfish and the temperament of a bratty 12 year old. He may be anti-government, but he’s going to have to work within the government to get anything done, not sit in the oval office and tweet insults all day. This message would probably be approved by Hillary Clinton! "
Did I do good? It's not like I am going to change anyone's opinion, but it felt good to get it out somewhere outside this friendly place.
