Wow! A tiny note: They are not as ORGANIZED as thought. Having trouble with the transition. Trump can't find qualified repubs to man major agencies. The watch dogs WON'T let him appoint ANYONE he wants. They have to be cleared [no leftists or nationals]. As why there is currently much controversy of his choices and why there's a slight delay. Still don't trust Trump. On the bright side I do smell a loophole. Kinda. Plus people are waking up from the shock. This is a wait and see situation.

I'm really contemplating America's politics and election "system", and just how rigged it really is, and for how long, or if it has always been rigged. The voting machines flipping Hillary's votes over to Trump, missing election ballots, missing (and 'confiscated') voter registrations, or even how far ahead Hillary was until, miraculously, all of a sudden, Trump just happens to start out- winning Hillary [and how it's is not even being questioned].

At least some White Americans, 'get it', when it comes to the racist fascism that Trump is making sure will take over the United States Government. This is far more serious than most Americans realize. This is far more serious than African Americans/Black people realize. This is far more serious than the entire Black race globally realizes.

But, this is exactly what is happening. This is much bigger than this idiot's business. Large portions of corporate America is on board with the GOP in wanting to see Obama's presidency appear to be a failure, that's why Bush sounded the false alarm about how bad the economy was right before leaving office in order for tax dollars to be fleeced to tide corporate America over until Obama is no longer in office.

I was in my local Wal-Mart store once when all of the electricity went out ... and, apparently, the generators didn't kick in. They cleared the store and put us out until the problem was corrected. I later found out that the MAIN reason for that was because the store's cameras and security devices were off-line and they felt they could not adequately guard against massive THEFT during that time. It was closed for about 30 minutes. And then ... it was back to 'shopping as usual'!! However ...
