I think we're going through some kind of an immune response. The mere presence of Donald Trump is forcing the raving lunatic nutjobs to come out of the wood work and have their reputations exterminated. It may still get a little worse before it really starts to get better.

This kind of thinking is very common among left. I'll give just one example: Business owners started laying off full time employees and hire part time, thanks to Obamacare. What did Obama do to fix it? He outlawed showing Obamacare as a reason for layoffs. See? Never fix the cause, always meddle with results. Shortsighted? Yes. Outright stupid? Yes. But that's what the left do, that's the limit of their IQ.

Both the Democrats and the Republicans have lost sight of reasonable positions. The Democrats have been pandering to progressive racists and radical feminists. The Republicans have been pandering to religious zealots and big businesses. Both are a problem and both try to legislate morality.

Trump is doing a marvelous job of overturning the tables and hopefully it will lead to either two new parties or a complete take over of the current ones with more reasonable people.

Maybe outlawing is not the right word, the truth is showing Obamacare as layoff reason was not allowed nor accepted by Obama administration. I remember the news item back then, but I do not remember the exact wording.

I think he means it was not accepted as terms for a layoff. Other reasons needed to be cited to qualify as a layoff instead of a firing.

:lol:

So glad he's gone.

I'd spend money to advertise that, especially locally (that is if I were laying off people and was told that I couldn't use that as a reason).
