You guys really should try to enjoy life... It's okay to laugh at humor.. If this was exactly the same video but said Obama you would love it. 

I don't understand that mentality.

Whatever... You post crazy stupid humor about the left all the time... I never neg that... I can laugh at jokes, too bad some people are so wound up they simply can't let go for a minute... No wonder that type of person is never really happy. They are always stuck looking for negatives and cannot enjoy basic human nature and laughing because it's funny regardless of politics... That is really an unfortunate way to go through life.

Yes it used to be funny but the Obama years and the media lying about what he was doing have made it not so funny anymore, we're afraid after we quit laughing our country will be a socialist country with the next step being communism, hope is to get back to laughing at Pres jokes, watching SNL, late night TV, trust in the media

I hear this all the time as if some elected can simply flip a switch. I'm not a Biden, Warren or Sanders guy, but if one of them should happen to win do you honestly believe our country will suddenly change? That is fantasy and fear mongering. Our country will not instantly become a different type of republic. One person cannot change our country or it's basic vision. Again, don't fall for the fear mongering put out by highly paid marketing professionals. Throughout our history there have been many examples of fear mongering and how someone or a group of people would take down America... It is propaganda and it has been tried before.

 

Here is an example....

 

One example of fearmongering in American politics is the Daisy television commercial, an oft-referenced advertisement used during Lyndon B. Johnson's 1964 presidential run. It begins with a little girl standing in a meadow with chirping birds, picking the petals of a daisy while counting each petal slowly. When she reaches "9", an ominous-sounding male voice is then heard counting down a missile launch, and as the girl's eyes turn toward something she sees in the sky, the camera zooms in until her pupil fills the screen, blacking it out. When the countdown reaches zero, the blackness is replaced by the flash and mushroom cloud of a nuclear explosion.

As the firestorm rages, a voice-over from president Johnson states, "These are the stakes! To make a world in which all of God's children can live, or to go into the dark. We must either love each other, or we must die". Another voice-over then says, "Vote for President Johnson on November 3. The stakes are too high for you to stay home".

 

And another example.

 

You had, for instance, the candidate of the Know-Nothings, 1856, Millard Fillmore, a former president, who said if you allow people of Irish origin and others to run rampant in American society — he was also anti-Catholic — this will be a danger to America.

 

One more for you. Just to see how this works...

 

Wendell Willkie in 1940, he certainly was — never said anything remotely like what we are talking about in terms of defaming minority groups, but he did in the full campaign say essentially, if you elect Franklin Roosevelt, even though he is promising you that he will not involve the United States in a foreign war, you can be sure that, if he's elected, we are going to be at war probably within a few months.

He didn't believe that was true. It went way beyond the facts, but it caused Willkie to soar ahead in the polls to the point that, by November, he was almost within striking distance of winning the presidency.

In order to best understand what is happening in the world one should consider eschatology.

Again just because the say it doesn't mean it will happen. Let me give you an example.... Mexico will pay for the wall.   That sure sounded good and people believed it. It doesn't mean it will happen, so please don't fall the fear mongering being used for someone's agenda...

He is most definitely the most intellectual and/or politically involved truck driver in the Americas....Besides being the King of US truck drivers

 

It's indeed a great honor to have him here on DV ( I'm serious)...As we're receiving lessons of life for free.....Not bad

Well, I guess some people believe anything... Personally I don't believe our country will suddenly become a new government because one person is elected. I think the Congress and Senate might have something to say about.

Same issue arises in many Countries....And things do not change all of a sudden.....Unless one takes for granted that the Citizens of a specific Country are extremely easy to manipulate....Which most of the time doesn't happen...A huge collective brain-wash....No way

 

 

Certainly not now with all the means of information one can have available...With different opinions

Are you comparing The United States of America to Venezuela? You really should come off the conspiracy sites. Venezuela is a banana republic and currently probably allow humor like we have in America. They don't have SNL, or late night talks shows where people can express their opinions or make fun of the government. Although after reading of the comments on this site, there does seem to be a faction of Americans who would like a dictatorship. A country without media, freedom of speech, basic human rights and many of the things we enjoy in our country.

  

This thread is about humor and if you would like to post satirical pieces on democrats running for office, I don't think the people on the left here at DV would whine and cry about it. Unlike the self labeled tough guys who back Trump seem to do every time they see something don't like. Stop and laugh even if it makes fun of Trump. Everyone laughed at Clinton and Obama, heck even Bush laughed at Bush jokes. Why are jokes about Trump sacrilege for his supporters?

Now that's not nice. Umbertino and I bring news articles. Just because you don't like or seek truth, that shouldn't be a reason for anger and attack posts. And truth is I'm not a Clinton voter, however she did win the majority. Majority, that means more people voted for her than her opponent. A novel concept that means nothing. So truth be known, he was appointed. The electoral college is made up of chosen folks by party members. So the republicans had more politicians living off the government than the democrats in 2016. But now that number is changing and democrats will be picking electoral college members and then they will get to appoint someone. Let's see what you think about the electoral college when that happens.
