As long as we have people who think you have to vote for one of two parties, Trump is doing is a favour.

My newest horror story: Once upon a time there was a man named Donald Trump, and he ran for president. Some people wanted him to win.

There's some cool shit I want to see and do in the States but I dunno if I'm into it for awhile. Over half the voter base wanted this and are still like "Yup, he's the fuckin man!!"

Me, too. I still have a bucket list of a few spots I want to ride in the US, but to be honest I am too concerned about all the weapons.

Call me crazy or scared, but I do not like the idea of spending time in a country in which you can get shot (at) by a total stranger. Adding to that the apparent xenophobic/redneck nature of almost half the citizens as you mentioned in your post, well, no thanks.

Oh, and if there are some posters who like to defend the idea of the 2nd Amendment in connection to assault rifles, check Jimmy Kimmel's comment and the comments by musician Caleb Keeter on what happened in Las Vegas.

lol........yeah man, there's a crazed gunman out there behind every American shrub and rock, just waiting for a mtn. biker to come along.

Conversely, a precedent has been set right here in Vancouver with a mtn. biker being brutally beaten to death with a ball peen hammer by someone who was hiding behind a tree!

Just stay away from night markets in your own country Mic, you'll be just fine.

Not unlike a ball point pen or say, car, a ball peen hammer was never made with the intention of killing. Guns on the other hand...

Puerto Rico is filled with a bunch of ingrates.  How dare they ask for assistance after being hit head-on by a class 5 hurricane.

This is clearly fake news.  Maria was just a paltry class 4 when it hit Puerto Rico. :)

Dunno what Puerto Ricans have to complain about ... the dang President threw out free rolls of paper towel into a crowd!  What more do they need to clean up their mess?
