    Mark your words? People like you SWORE up and down that Clinton couldn't possibly lose against Trump.

    America is still mostly white, ignorant and racist. Get used to it.

    I'm not denying parts of this country are racist, but to say that "most" of America is racist is dumb. Most people didn't vote for him and his approval rating is extremely low.

    Most national polls saw Hillary winning by 3 points which is exactly what happened, even with the GOP's gerrymandering and voter suppression efforts. Even with Russian meddling in swing states.

    Trump won Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin by 0.2, 0.7 and 0.8 percentage points, which is what gave him the victory. Other states had close margins too.

    No one is disputing that he won the presidency, but the whole idea that "most" of this country is behind him is false.

     

  2. In theory, legal hunting of animals like lions and elephants is supposed to help fund conservation while eliminating animals that can no longer breed or that will inhibit others from breeding. While it's technically true that a portion of every hunt goes toward conservation, there's increasing evidence that the money often ends up in the wrong hands and there's very little evidence that any animals are being helped.

    The excuse that it's all for conservation is utter bullshit.
