Just a little bit from Obama regarding Trump. It was funny before last night, but now it's just straight up hilarious.

We've yet to see how he will govern and how his policies will affect America.

True however he is the worst president in my books since his trading policies are going to make free trade from my country and his a hassle.
That being said most people only buy stuff digitally from America...and will probably just resort to piracy xD

Free trade benefits the large global corporations and hurts the localities that sell their goods.

The USA used to fund itself *entirely* from tariffs, before the unconstitutional income tax was enacted.

Getting sutured hurts, if you've ever had it done without novicane.

Doesnt mean its worse than leaving the pus to form, though

So the US thrives a tiny bit more whilst everyone else suffers.

Eh all it means to me is if the costs for my hobby goes up ill switch to pirating

Eh... Opposed to how screwed the US is currently due to our trade policy at the moment.

Maybe you should just reserve judgment for a year or so.

I understand what you mean. But, you're referring to media specifically, which is really, almost in every way, not essential to survival.

You want to know where the US can REALLY hurt the world as far as products are concerned? Agriculture. We're one of the top producers. But we haven't.

Personally, I don't want to screw over other nations. But, people who don't live in the US seem to think we live in some form of idiotic fantasy land where shit comes easy. This simply is not true.

Our unemployment rates are WAY higher than people know, because the only ones we count as "unemployed" are the ones who are seeking assistance from the government in seeking a job. And that amounts to a whole shit ton of people not using Workforce Solutions (for where I live) because IF you get a job with them, it pays shit, and they require a ton of extra BS, like classes. If I don't have a job, how the fuck can I afford to drive a two hour round trip so you can tell me how to get a job that isn't even going to pay for the gas to get there?

Point being, America has been slowly turning to shit. Unless you have a really good degree, a ton of experience, or happen to know the right people, it is damned near impossible to find a job that you can support a family with.

For like the 5th time in 3 years, I'm living with my mother... and I don't even have to pay rent at my other home, just taxes, because I own the mother fucker outright.

And you know what's the saddest thing? I just got hired as a jailer for the county jail. Benefits are great, but they STILL are not enough to support a family. I'm looking at about $1600 MAX per month. I can't do shit with that.

Me and my wife cannot both get a job, because childcare costs so much, by the time we pay for gas and childcare her check wouldn't even make any money. We've applied for government assistance child care TWO YEARS AGO, and we've still not been able to receive the help.

We don't want a hand out, we want a hand UP!

Now, if Trump can deregulate, my county should have a huge influx of oil and gas business (as we did before Obama got into office). The oil and gas workers are paid well, and spend a lot of money. This means more tax revenue for my county. This means My county can increase budget items such as pay for jailers and dispatchers.

So, YES, in a very real way, Trump getting into office could drastically improve the quality of my life.

And, if that means you pirate movies and programs, good for you, I don't give a shit. I have a family I'm desperately trying to support.

Unemployment is big in every country heck its going to become more and more a problem in every country even if Trump does do what he says.

I hope things do work out the way you think they will im still worried for my quality of life and the rest of the world.
For alot of thing my quality of life is probably about to drop due to Trump getting in and we are suffering mass unemployment where i live and barely getting by with our low dollar which is falling more and more.

There is always a price America may have it better via trump but in turn someone has to suffer and that's going to be me and the other people who rely on american imports. :(

Im having a hard time getting by now if the dollar keeps dropping....soon i won't be able to afford to be going to university or study or even live comfortably or goto the doctor.

Oh my God. You really don't get it.

I'm ALREADY there.

This is probably going to disturb some of you but, here I go: I'm a veteran. I get free health care through the VA. However, it is so slow, it takes FOREVER to get seen.

About a month ago, I had severe abdominal pain. I had to go to the ER, because I can't afford a doctor, and I can't get seen immediately by the VA.

I was in so much pain, they gave me morphine. That wasn't enough, so they gave a Tramadol after.

They released me when the pain had subsided, because that's all they'll fucking do. I woke up about 4 am in just as much pain....popped a shit ton of pain meds, Tylenol, Aspirin, and Ibuprofen all at the same time. Thought I was going to have to go back to the ER.

So, they gave me follow-up paper work (which included recommended work-ups like a HIDA scan, etc), and the next day, still in a shit ton of pain, I give the papers to the VA. They tell me it could be the next day before the doctor looked at it. So I went home. Also, that was a two hour round trip drive to get there.

A WEEK later, the VA calls and tells me they will "be setting up appointments" in Houston (that's 3 hours away, 6 hour round trip) sometime in the future. Still no notifications about that.

Now, I'm no longer in pain, but since that night I've been shitting blood EVERY day. A LOT. Like, scary amounts. And I've told them this.

But, there is nothing I can do until I get my insurance from the Sheriff's Office. The ER will not do anything. I can't afford a doctor. The VA takes its goddamned time.

So, oh no, you might not be able to afford a doctor? Well, I'm already there, so get over it.

Exactly you are there so how is it fair to put someone else in that position so you can be in theirs?

I do get that you are there and that isn't good however choosing an option that improves your life but means others have to suffer how you suffered imo is selfish.

But i can't blame you if i was in the same situation i would probably be just as selfish.

You assume that i don't understand i do i just don't agree that swapping who gets to suffer is the best way to go about it surely there must be some other option atleast i wish to imagine there is.

oh well in the end i guess ill have to hope my country doesn't follow in the foot steps of America and we find another way that doesn't make other countries suffer so we can have it good.

Im sorry for what is happening to you i am but i don't want to be put into the same position so you can't blame me for being upset or dissapointed.

I hope in the end something will happen that will bring free trade whilst helping Americas economy.

Oh Lord.

You still don't get it.

We're not trying to screw people.... WE'RE being screwed by everyone else, and we're trying to unfuck that.

I'm sorry that means your nation will have to find another means to make money rather than fucking the US in trade.
