Meanwhile, petulant children are throwing fits across the country by performing clearly logical violent acts... like burning limos in front of newspaper buildings that actually share their political views, and breaking the windows of businesses that ALSO share their political views. Genius!

Yeesh! I'm all for protesting, but once the protest gets so violent to the point where people start breaking things, that's where the protest really starts to become invalidated, and the rioters do deserve the consequence.

Plus, in general, I don't really see the point of protesting the inauguration. Yes, I despise Trump as much as the next person, but he did win fair and square. If you don't like that, then it's not the inauguration that people should fight for, but rather the system that got Trump elected in the first place, i.e. the electoral college. Protesting the inauguration isn't going to change that. It's through the system that he won, and there's nothing, not Obama, or any other government officials can do about it even if they wanted to.

I still do have my fears about what may come out of Trump's presidency. I know most people here are more optimistic about Trump's presidency than I am, and I am doing my best not to assume the worst. But this is a divided country we are living in at the moment whether you think it is or not. If there is one silver lining I'm seeing, is that people seem to be very willing to fight for the rights that Trump wants to eliminate. The nationwide women's march is a good first step to that as I'm loving what I'm seeing of that. I also hope we see the same fight being put up when fighting for things like racism, health care, social security, and most importantly, climate change.

Er... what rights exactly? This is what is confusing to me about these so called marches. What are they marching for? I don't recall any campaign rhetoric that eluded to taking away anyone's rights.

As for the newest pet environmental scam, I'm afraid the only thing that can be done is to figure out some way to control the Sun. Probably not gonna happen though... just guessin'.

Nothing really. They're just bored.

I noticed that while senators like Elizabeth Warren got the crowd fired up, Hillary Clinton did not even attend the Women's March.

That is why Clinton lost the election, not because she is woman but because she is not a leader.

Facepalm worthy quote of the day.

The reason marches like that exist is to send a message to our government, or in this case, President Trump, that we won't be divided. He also wants to take away basic rights like abortions and defunding Planned Parenthood. You know, things that are basic human rights for women. Not to mention we have a president who bragged so much about sexually assaulting women. Also, the fact that there were way more people who attended the women's march than there were those who attended his inauguration is pretty telling of how everyone, including myself, feels about Trump. I would have attended a women's march myself if I didn't have work that day, but I'd be up for attending anything else in the future.

But yeah, you're right. Every single person who joined in on the women's march are clearly just bored.

Yeah, Hillary Clinton has been completely silent about everything that has been happening with Trump in these past few months, where as Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders has been out there fighting against Trump's policies and views. It really goes to show where Hillary really stands on the issues.

That, and Hillary Clinton, in general, is a very losing candidate. The only reason she got even some support was because she's not Trump. Not because they necessarily supported her. If she was going up against a rock for president, she still would have lost. I do believe it's partially because of how the DNC favored Hillary that we even got president Trump in the first place.

This is a really funny comment i saw in a youtube video: "Donald Trump in one day made more fat woman go for a walk than Michelle Obama in 8 years. What a great leader he is!".

I thought that was pretty hilarious (and kind of true).
