The term "friend list" is a misnomer. Most of these lists are made up of people one rarely interacts with or has ever interacted with on a personal level.

Perhaps a more appropriate term would be "audience list".

Re: RECOUNT in 3 SWING STATES - HERE WE GO!

Do not pretend that's not true. And the increase in hate crimes grew even MORE frequent AFTER he won the electoral vote. Stay tunned. Next. Basically what I was gonna say... you never said they were happening, only that it was coming... Anyone can make a prediction. May or may not come to pass. Nob...

Re: RECOUNT in 3 SWING STATES - HERE WE GO!

Third World Election tactics. And they said Trump was the one who wouldn't accept the results. Jill Stein is a stooge for HDRC, pure and simple. Bought and paid for. Possible but doubtful. The Greens aren't crazy about the hawkish foreign policies of either major party. We tend to attribute hawks t...

Re: RECOUNT in 3 SWING STATES - HERE WE GO!

If I understand the Radiodoc logic here... "Trump won fair and square with our electoral system" Asking for a recount is also a part of the system. Let the system run it's course and quit bitching. Why should you care if they ask for a recount? Hey, as long as I ain't payin' for it, let 'em count t...

Re: RECOUNT in 3 SWING STATES - HERE WE GO!

Libertarian candidates have traditionally attracted disgruntled Republicans and taken votes from GOP candidates. This time I think it was a little different. I've read that Johnson attracted fairly equivalent numbers of Democrats and Republicans and dinged both major party candidates. The LP platfor...

Re: Do You Discuss Politics on Social Media?

Free speech is between you and the government and how it cannot limit your free expression. It doesn't apply to an individual or private entity. They CAN tell you to shut up. People have taken the idea of "free speech" and run with it... often when it doesn't apply because the government is not inv...

Re: Do You Discuss Politics on Social Media?

I am a Luddite... I use no social media and I don't care to. I don't see the point. You know, posting in forums such as this one really isn't much different than "social media." The only difference is specific forums have specific discussion topics. Well that, and you probably know far fewer people...

Re: Do You Discuss Politics on Social Media?

I do, though not a lot. On facebook, I have been unfriended at least 3 times from what I'm almost certain is politics-related discussions. One friend in particular, who we had been friends for over 7 years, was particularly distraught over Trump winning - she posted that basically it was because th...

Re: Hillary Wins Popular Vote = Protests

Remember the scene in the movie Tora,Tora,Tora ... where the officer who wouldn't take seriously warnings - by which others were alarmed - was now watching out a window Pearl Harbor and most of the US fleet being bombed by the Japanese? At that moment one of those others looks him straight in the e...

Re: RECOUNT in 3 SWING STATES - HERE WE GO!

Michigan election officials have stated time and time again that our polling system is pretty much fraud-proof. Voting machines are secured, and nothing is connected to the internet. Look, I'm no Trump fan (not that I'm any Hillary fan either), but according to our nation's election system, he won b...
