G'day,

Congratulations to all our USA friends, I'm sure President Trump will turn the whole world upside-down, but then the world does need a good spring-clean anyway. It's certainly less likely that there will be any nuclear world war anytime soon, tho a civil war is much more likely.

And what about our love of models? Well with Trumps America promising a 45% tariff increase on everything coming out of China, I suspect many of us will be leaving the hobby? Or will Gemini Jets, Aeroclassics, et al be moving back to the USA to manufacture..? I suspect no-one will want to pay an extra 45%+ for their models? Oooh it will probably be more as the US $ will deflate as well. Maybe 80% more??? Much like the British Pound...

Cheers everyone

Funny you say that...They showed a clip of NBC today's Matt Lauer interviewing President Obama at the White House from Last January and Mr. Lauer asked Mr. Obama will Donald Trump ever see the Oval Office as president?

Mr. Obama answered, "Only if its a skit from SNL"

Now who is laughing?

Thanks for the heads up from Australia though I don't really see the civil unrest just yet...unless you are on fb I suppose; but, hey, thanks for the warning. Your time zone is ahead of the US so maybe your'e on to something. We all better be prepared.

Mr Trump's political agenda:

Trump's First 100 Days: Here Is What The President-Elect Wants To Do : NPR

* FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205

* SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership

* THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator

* FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately

* FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars' worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.

* SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward

* SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America's water and environmental infrastructure

If you want to **** your economy, be my guest, but don't **** with the environment, that affects us all.

I find it unbelievable that for second time in the past 3 elections we have elected a President that DID NOT win the majority of votes cast. Trump like Bush won with fewer votes than their opponent.

Doe any one find that democratic? We are supposed to be a Republic, and we are becoming a banana republic by continuing to use an archaic system that continually fails us.

I live in France, and next year the French have their presidental election. They have a very odd system, the candidate with the most votes wins. Weird I know.

Lets be honest, If this had happened to Trump you'd be screaming like a little b*tch, the difference though is I would agree with you. You only think with your partisan blinders on.

So let me explain something to you: winning the election was the easy part. The hard part is governing. I was never a fan of Hillary, I only thought she would do a better job. Therefore You republicans better not dissappoint the country and screw up. The majority of the country was against you. You have control of all facets of government at the moment so you won't be able to blame the Democrats or the "establishment". Starting January 20 2017, you are the establishment.

Personally, I think Trump is going to be a 1-term President.

See you in 2020.

Of course not, but because this is the way our system is setup the loser (who happens to be the winner by popularity) have no other choice but to accept it. You figure that after Gore lost to Bush, the Democrats would be pushing for a change. Specially considering that times have changed and the electoral system is outdated. BUT, they opted not to and it kicked their butt a second time in recent elections.

Trump says he will do all that in the first 100 days...what is he another Dutuerte? The first 100 days will be interesting.

When Gore lost, the experts said it was a rare fluke that the President should win the electoral but not the popular which is why it was dismissed.

I am not saying the result should be changed this election. 2016 is done and over. However this abnormality is no longer a rare fluke anymore, and should it continue then steps need to be taken to redesign our election system. The electoral college is a outdated and flawed system, even the country that invented it no longer uses it. Its time for our system to be modernized into a more fairer system.

I suspect it will still be cheaper with the 45% tariff on Chinese made products, compared to being made in the US.

No doubt, but with a Republican controlled Congress and having benefited twice by the system, don't think they are in much of a rush to change things.

As for the people protesting, they should just go home and accept the fact that Trump won. Hillary could have won had she not assumed she certain states were going her way. I read that she didn't visit WI towards the end because they usually voted for the Democrats. The DNC strategists made a big mistake there.

We don't have a spare planet to move to.

So our actions will impact future generations.

As a human being it is thus encumbent on the living to ensure the environment is not destroyed to satisfy a relatively short term popularity vote.

This is one of the problems I have with the democratic system. People are elected for a short period and then they are off. But what they leave behind can cause damage for generations to come.

You can't say "the environment doesn't mean jack ...."

Environmental issues is not to be discarded because people don't have jobs.

It is not a "jobs OR the other environment situation".
It is a "we need this AND we need to stay cognizant of environmental issues as those could be devastating in future"

The difficult part - which is what a president and his cabinet is supposed to do -- would be to create jobs and growth WITHOUT impacting negatively on the climate/environment.

I'm not saying the environment isn't important. It is. I just think in this case, the benefits of stimulating the economy outweigh the drawbacks.

After all, Greece won't be putting up many expensive wind turbines with riots in the streets and no money in the banks.

Stop people having so many kids and you'll have your solution. Two child policy please.

She may well hang on to a miniscule lead in the end, we''ll just have to wait and see.

The electoral college isn't going anywhere, and as for the sniveling crybaby that wishes the US had a political system like France... All I can say is thank God Almighty that we are not, and never will be France.

You lack vision, at the end it will be more expensive to fix the coal-fired power problems than stay with clean wind/solar/nuclear energy.

The job problem is the neoliberal system we live in today, the rich have too much money and the poor have too little, and the gap is getting bigger, and taking restrictions off the power plants won't change that.

The electoral college isn't going anywhere, and as for the sniveling crybaby that wishes the US had a political system like France... All I can say is thank God Almighty that we are not, and never will be France.
Ever wonder why practically nobody, including the UK whom invented the system never actually adopted it?

The countries that actually still use it are Burundi, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Myanmar, Pakistan, Trinidad and Tobago and Vanuatu.

As you can see, that's a top tier category of democracies right there.

I also could go on an explain why a parliamentary system would be better, for example a fairer voting system, greater allowance of multiple parties in the political process, the ability no recall incompetent heads of state, etc. All of which our current system lacks

But lets be honest, you are too stupid and ignorant to really understand anyway so why waste my time?

OK yes, I get it... when you can't offer an intelligent or adult response, you simply resort to juvenile antics and insults, yeah that works, and will surely win you many supporters.

Just a brief note on the electoral college.. Changing the EC or ditching it altogether would require a Constitutional Amendment, and that is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, it has about as much chance of success as Obama being re-installed as Emperor for Life, in other words ZERO.

As for the people protesting, they should just go home and accept the fact that Trump won. Hillary could have won had she not assumed she certain states were going her way. I read that she didn't visit WI towards the end because they usually voted for the Democrats. The DNC strategists made a big mistake there.
Which is why this abnormality needs to hit the Republicans before change to actually happen. Some smug a-holes here think the system (which was designed in the 17th century by a completely different country) is fine because their candidate won, but when a democrat wins using the same system exploit you'll see how quickly they will reconsider. My view is consistent, it doesn't matter which party wins the system still sucks.

I do agree about the protests, it wont change anything. Flawed as the system is Trump still won regardless. The time would be better spent analyzing what went wrong. Trump is going to be a weak president, he's already made quite a few enemies and given his vindictiveness he likely make more. He'll be particularly vulnerable in 2020 if the Democrats don't find a way to screw it up.

Are you serious? You started this, and now you're actually going to whine and lecture me about being an adult? Too funny.

I think we have identified the crybaby now haven't we? You have a choice: Either learn some manners, politely disagree, and act like adult or else grow some balls if you are going to act like an a-hole!

Personally I prefer polite disagreement, but if you take that kind of disrespectful tone with me I will hit you back, so don't cry about it when payback comes.

Back to subject: Difficult yes, not impossible. If you read Trump's 100 day plan he wants to bring term limits to congress in a year where his party the republican controls both houses. I would put the chances of that happening at even less than redesigning our electoral system. The way you do it via the grassroots. If Public opinion can united in opting for a constitutional change, those in power will dare not oppose it if the protest is loud enough.

So if you think changing the constitution is impossible you might want to let the President-elect know because he disagrees with you.

The way you do it via the grassroots. If Public opinion can united in opting for a change, those in power will dare not oppose it of the protest is loud enough.

As for who threatened who first, it doesn't really matter does it? The point is that both sides have been guilty of it.

Doesn't matter? Iran is threatening to destroy Israel for no reason. Israel is defending itself against such a threat. For you that doesn't matter?

Trump will repair the damage that the Obama administration has caused to US - Israeli relations over the past 8 yrs., and it can't come soon enough, Israel is and has always been the USA's strongest ally in the region, and will remain so.

Now let the Anti Semitic tirade begin, and make no mistake about it people... he is an Anti Semite.
There you go name-calling again,

You really ought to learn the difference not liking a government (which I readily admit) and not liking a entire people before spouting such garbage.

I don't like the Israeli Government, and I don't like dual-loyalty traitors like yourself that put Israel's interests above our own.

This is a country that has routinely spied on us, sold our military technology to the Chinese and oh yeah attacked the USS Liberty as an "Accident". 32 NAVY lives lost to your BFF.
Had this been any other country we'd have bombed the crap outta them, but because it was Israel they got a pass. And all to the tune of $11.5 Billion we give them annually for the past 40 years.
Yes clearly I have no right to be pissed about it, I am simply a mean anti-Semite, just like you are an imbecile.

And this is the type of ally you want. It speaks volumes about them and you.

Well, Israel wouldn't have threatened Iran prior to the Iranian revolution would they? After all, up until 1979, Iran was ruled by the Shah, another staunch ally of the US in the region. No surprise there.

Back on topic, and a genuine question. Why is it that in most democracies, we cannot have a 'one man one vote' system? surely the most democratic method for choosing a government.

You and ELY must stop your bullcrap.

Just because someone doesn't agree with your narrow world view does not make them an antisemite.

If you make statements like that it is the embodyment of bigotry:
Bigotry = "intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself"

You can say that you don'g agree with March, you may even call him an idiot for his views, but you cannot brand him antisemitic.

I have a strong opinion about this because I have also been called antisemetic in this very thread and it is totally below the belt and untrue. I value all lives and don't wish death on anyone.

When I read about terrorist actions I am just as appaled and disgusted by them and the immediate feeling is "strike them back and blow them to smithereens". But then my rational mind asks "How can one find another way to stop the circle. For violence will eventually just beget violence. If one can find a way to convince someone without spilling blood, then that would be a better option in the long run.

Learn to build bridges and understanding and acceptance amongs people of different world views. But maybe that is just too difficult for some mindsets to do.

My wish is for people from both sides of the political divide to stop throwing **** at each other. What will that accomplish, just escalation.
Into what? Civil war?

So stop saying "We Won". As if it was a battle between enemies.
Build a bloody nation. Become a bastion of unity and multiculturalism where acceptance and live-and-let-live is at the order of the day.

/rant over.
