FML - The follow-up
crazymentalblond Say more :
OP here, when the second classmate made his announcement, everyone went silent (I swear crickets were chirping). He went into a ramble that sounded oddly like "the statue we got it in 1962." It took us all a few minutes to stifle our laughter to correct him. After that, yes someone did inform the first guy he was indeed wrong and told him several reasons why. At least it was a good way to kick off a what was slowly becoming a boring day. And yes I focused on the second guy a little bit

Can you not? It doesn't matter who people voted for. That's the type of attitude that tears this country apart. People bashing Hilary voters and then those voters turn around and bash Trump voters. Who cares who voted for who. It's not like the people just up and changed when they voted for the new President. Stop being so judgemental. It isn't cute and gets you no where. How would you feel if someone said this is FML, the person who thought French gave us the Mona Lisa, was the product of you?

I'm sorry but allied countries do tend to help each other out. Also America would not have won the revolutionary war without the aid of Lafayette, a French general.

I will concede. Estimates say that the French provided up to 90% of arms as well as a plethora of grants and maritime assistance. The reason was motivated in part to get revenge on the British.

#31, Different regime than the one that helped us in the Revolutionary War. Napoleon Bonaparte sold the Louisiana Purchase for around $11.25 million (and some cancelled debts), for a total of around $15 million . He decided to sell due to threatened war with Britain and the inability to be able to defend New Orleans (Spain delayed in transferring Florida to France and Haiti had rebelled successfully). The US representatives were offering $10 million for New Orleans alone, and accepted the exp

It's quite accurate to suggest that pandering to the less educated got him elected. He told them what he wanted to hear, and they didn't have the sense to really think about what he said. I don't get why people want an "outsider" as president. It's one thing for an outsider to be mayor or a city council member. But not president. I mean, would you want someone who doesn't know what s/he's doing to perform surgery on you, or would you want an experienced surgeon who knows what s/he's d

Let's stop acting like everyone who voted for Trump is an ignorant, uneducated, hateful fuck. Granted, a lot of them are, but there are also a lot of people who voted for Trump who didn't like Trump at all. They just thought Clinton was worse. My mother has a master's degree and has studied French and history and she voted for Trump, again, not because she liked him, but because she decided he was the lesser of two evils. I'm a registered Republican and I would have voted for the Democrat nomine

32, I don't know why you're getting thumbed down. Maybe you're just making too much sense and a little too civil for this site. But I agree, Trump got elected on a huge part due to a poor choice of an opponent. Trump didn't turn out any more voters than Mitt Romney, and Clinton turned out far fewer than those who voted for Pres. Obama. Had anyone else run against Trump, we would have a different president-elect. (And I voted for Johnson too. Third party all the way).

Obama wasnt any huge part of politics before he was elected and please tell me how he helped unite anyone. more race riots them bush, backed thugs and shit on police that defended themselves, gave our enemy billions, destabilized the middle East more and spent like money grew on trees. now people are paying more for worse health insurance as well. trump wasn't my first pick but I'll take my chances with him then get what Clinton promised.

they have also given the world some of the best food! also, I never really thought of the statue of liberty's facial expression being similar to that of the Mona Lisa until now. . .
