Conservatism may be dead unless Ryan has more power than I think.

How apt that the 21st century equivalent of the brown shirt will be a pair of ****ty trainers.

I see conservatism as resistance to progressive change.

Free market capitalism is the status quo but now it's apparent that it's responsible for upsetting the balance of global economic power, opposing it is still consistent with conservatism.

Walker says the man in the white jacket in the surveillance video, who is Hispanic, tried to talk to her as she went back into the bar to retrieve her phone.

She says he then said something disrespectful.

"And Mitchell was like, 'What did he say to you?'" she said.

She says Mormon and the man began arguing. She says Mormon jokingly told the man he voted for Donald Trump and he would be gone next week.

Walker says the argument continued, the shooter went around the corner, came back with a gun and opened fire.
So rather than some political attack based on political support for Donald Trump, it's a bar fight with people mouthing off back and forth and some guy going to his car and getting a gun and shooting the other person. Tragic and pretty common.

But handed to the Daily Caller, the Free Beacon, and the fake news network it becomes some guy just joking around and says he voted for Donald Trump and some guy comes up and shoots him.

I hope the catch the murderer but Donald Trump is tangential to it. That's how you get played.

It's done so easily. Like, how do you combat this?

I don't think you can, really. At least I don't know how.

But we've produced 60 million Trump voters by ignoring these issues and just wishing they would die off. They're not going to just die off. We have to be active. Go out and make a difference.
QFT. In addition, sexism needs to get shut the **** down immediately too. It's amazing that Trump getting caught bragging about sexual assault has only served the purpose of emboldening sexual predators now that he's won.

Quote:
Opposing Trump didn’t prevent Singer from profiting from his win.

Hedge fund billionaire Paul Singer was no fan of Donald Trump, but he has the President-elect to thank for a big payoff on one recent trade.

Last quarter, Singer’s firm Elliott Management placed bets worth approximately $100 million on two private prison stocks, GEO Group GEO and CoreCivic CXW, the company formerly known as Corrections Corporation of America. Today, Singer’s holdings in the jail operators are worth more than $150 million—a profit of more than $42 million and a return of almost 40% in less than two months.

Prison stocks broke out of their funk after the presidential election last week, as Trump’s victory assuaged fears that Hillary Clinton would shut down private prisons, something she’d suggested during her campaign out of public safety concerns. CoreCivic, then still called Corrections Corp., was the top-performing stock the day after the election, up nearly 50%, while GEO Group stock rose 21%. (The company since then has implemented a name change that it announced in October.)
