Make America Nice Again
#1
Make America Nice Again
I watched The President-Elect's speech tonight. He stated that he is going to be the President of America, that he does not see Blue States or Red States, only the United States of America; he also said that the divisive rhetoric and the temperature must be lowered, that we must listen to one another again and that we stop looking at each other as enemies.
I am willing to do that. For me, personally, it is going to be dependent on these 6 conditions:
1. The Conservatives started this culture war shit. They will have to stop calling me and my people "dirty damn liberals." They must be the first to stop weaponizing politics and stand down.
2. Our country (OUR, as in all Americans) is NOT YOUR CHURCH: the wall of separation between government and religion must be repaired and respected. Conservatives and Republicans MUST STOP trying to legislate their sacred texts and STOP trying to make America into a theocracy.
3. Everyone should again understand the definitions of Fact, Truth, and Mythology and recognize what the difference is among all three. Recognize Science. Respect Science.
4. Understand that even though you are entitled to your own opinion you ARE NOT entitled to your own facts. See no. 3.
5. If you are nice to me I will be nice to you.
6. Last, but not the least important: GIVE PRESIDENT ELECT JOE BIDEN AND V.P. ELECT KAMALA HARRIS a chance!
If at any moment that I see that any and/or all of these provisions are violated, I will go back to war mode and do everything and anything in my power to get rid of the violators from the other side. You now have a grace period. I strongly advise you all to use it wisely.
If anyone agrees with this proviso please copy, paste and/or share, you have my permission. Please spread the word.

I'm not American and usually have little interest in American politics, but I must say I agree  with every word of this.
BTW, is anyone surprised that Trump is such a sore loser?

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

TBH, Secular Elf, IMO 5. should be prioritized first, if that numbering scheme is sectioned after priority and not just random 6 points on a list.

The stupid value system of a lot of people, way too many IMO, supersedes the basic human value of everyone. If you would discount any human being on the basis of some idea, then you're on a dark path of excusing atrocities if you go down that line into a fucking pitchblack abyss.

Be nice.

But with that said, and all the jazz about practical stuff, you still have to recognize the morons in the abyss lashing out and defend yourself against them.

Lol.

They won an election - not a war. 

Come back in 4 years (of nothing but partisan bickering) and tell me what a great day this is.


You eternal optimists are cute....

Yes, yes. Let's ignore that y'all just veered away from a course into the fucking abyss of fascism ... for now. Must be nice to live in OLB land.

Who isn't?

Expecting people to change because you won an election is delusional as fuck.
