I disagree

I think you picked the wrong boogie man.

Yes, the right is completely and totally unacceptable. Since the Republfucks can't govern we are going to have to learn to. Eventually it means building a consensus majority big enough to fully defeat and discredit them. On that day we will need the far left. "How can we bring them to our side?" is the question we should be asking IMO. Obama was able to do it - Hillary and Gore were not. (Though Gore was somewhat more successful than Hillary.) There was a reason for that. Sorry if it makes you feel bad but it is the truth. We are going to have to get over our devastating defeat in 2016 and pull it together. The nation depends on it.

It is wrong to single out the far left. I think some think we should have "had their votes" but I'm not sure we ever did regardless of candidate. If we had had an Obama maybe but someone like that only comes around once in 100 years or so.

Received a death threat on another (non-political) site tonight

It scared the shit out of me. All I did was respond to a post about "chess and the election". The article said that the choice was hard. I responded in the comments that "no it wasn't" Someone then posted that I was right and it was obvious that Trump was the correct but flawed choice. I obviously responded that that was the opposite of what I meant by saying that the choice was obvious and that Trump was a danger and that I opposed him with every fiber of my being.

As a result I received the following threat (from a different poster) on my home page:

What a politically correct cunnt u are!!! either get on the trump train or hang on a tree!! u probably anyways gonna hang, cause ur points of view are a mental disease!!! and it doesnt seem like u guys are gonna get healed soon... so have fun with that bullet in ur head...........................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahahahahhahhHAHAHAHHA


I took it as a threat. Not a direct one but it scared me. I have contacted the site administrators and they have revoked the guys right to post. Unfortunately, they didn't revoke his right to play which I disagree with.

I'm posting this to REMIND EVERYONE TO LIMIT YOUR INTERNET FOOTPRINT. These assholes are real and this situation is very real. We need to remember to be careful. I have since removed several location identifying information from that site. I never post my location for public view but I innocently did on this site because I considered it non-political and thus safe. It was not!
