    I respectfully disagree with you... it may be why Trump is popular with a minority group of the minority party (I know you'll argue this point), but it's one of the major problems we have as a society right now... few are thoughtful, nice and considerate anymore. Vigilante posses have always been popular with some. The old-farts couch it as, "I'm old, I've earned the right to live my life as I please." Good for you, I respect that, but not at the expense (verbal, physical or whatever) of other people. I get Steve Wynn's point and don't have a problem with it in the least... yours' is more concerning to me. Time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans, my group (I'm 57) and the one before it (yes...The Greatest Generation) has pretty much fucked-up everything!

    Trump makes it easy for some folks to abdicate their responsibilities as sentient beings and as an electorate. The latest numbers regarding the anti-Trumps sentiment are staggering. Bill's back in the White House.

    Disagreements are perfectly fine. That's what life's all about. The ability to get past them and respect differences of opinion is what has been lost. Oversensitive cry-babies that take offense to everything is the problem I was referring to. People also have the ability to not listen to a person if they don't like what is being said. Tough-talk may not be favorable to hear, but I'd rather not be bullshitted to death.

    Also, my generation (I'm turning 40 Saturday) is very selfish and created the even more selfish millennials. I blame this on many factors, but the "greatest generation" didn't start this. Once televisions, computers, and now cellphones began distracting people from their family, friends and turned everyone inward, the deterioration of America (and society) began. Today's youth have become robots following whatever the #hashtag of the day is (trust me, I work for a private college in Manhattan). I couldn't tell you how many of them walk into walls and poles because they are reading their phone (I wish I made that part up).

    That being said, I would never take anything personal or get aggravated by someone else's views. that's their view, who am I to say if it's wrong. In my world (my mind) I'm right, so it makes no difference to me. Life is too precious, I'd rather dream about Vegas anyway.

    Bill may have just sabotaged Hillary. Did you see the video where he gave it to BLM protesters? He was on-point, but that's going to have a big impact on Hillary.

    Is the board having an issue as the first post in this thread I see is Smartone quoting yankees, but I see no other pages where the quoted post came from?

    They pulled this from the Wynn comment thread and created this one.
