    I thought she was leaving the country?

      My favorite “I’m leaving the country” proclamation was from Lena Dunham. Even went so far to say that “Everyone thinks I’m joking but I’m really not”- then proceeded to describe her home in Canada and how it would only be temporary. Obviously never followed through. Shocker. Liberal or Conservative I think we can all agree that she is the worst.

        Besides all that, it’s insurmountably hard in most cases for the average American to immigrate to a country with a standard of living anything similar to how things are in the US.

          She went to my alma mater but dropped out. I never saw her though… only found out after the fact. I love her Betty Rubble laugh!

    maybe you should accept election results like a grownup. Maybe you should spend time with all those unlucky adopted children you neglect while you’re at it “Rosie instead of endless posturing with useless protests. And then maybe we’ll try to forget your claim that you were in love with Tom Cruise…remember?
