No sympathy for you. Did you not hear him flip-flop mid-sentence all the time during the campaign? Did you not realize your health insurance problems were due to your state government's decisions and not the federal government's? Did you not realize you were gathering all of your information from one source and were actively ignoring all others that were countering your main source?

There are no do-overs. You chose, you get what you deserve. Enjoy.
It took me just a few days to realize I’d supported a demagogue.

"Born in the USA" is a critique of America, not a patriotic masturbation. Too many people don't seem to get that, likely fooled by the upbeat music and the chorus. Minimal attention to the lyrics is enough to understand what the song is about, but I guess even that's too difficult to them.
The Bruce Springsteen cover band scheduled to play a Donald Trump inauguration party has dropped out of "respect and gratitude" for Springsteen.

Congratulations, US media! You’ve just covered your first press conference of an authoritarian leader with a massive ego and a deep disdain for your trade.

You know, at least he's admitting his statement was dumb (not to mention the delivery, oops). That's better than the other nominees. The bar is low.
Senate confirmation hearing begins for the former Texas governor who couldn’t remember the department’s name during a 2012 presidential debate.

As an immigrant who spent much time with other immigrants, I don't buy this. "It's not that easy?" Of course it's not! Was it easy for "the Mexicans" who "stole" jobs? Many of them left their home, family, and friends, and came to a foreign country speaking a foreign tongue with nothing on their hands to build something from literal nothing. That's who you're competing with, so step up your game.

Many ask why workers like Lexso and Sheridan don't pack up and move somewhere else for a job. GM says it's trying to find other openings for workers. Some are heading to Tennessee.

But it's not that easy, especially for people with deep roots and family ties. Lexso has three children. Her husband nurses an injury from his factory job at another plant and she's also caring for two sick uncles.
2,000 GM workers are losing their job on January 20, 2017, the day Donald Trump takes office. Many of these workers in Ohio and Michigan voted for Trump. They hope he'll save their jobs.

They provide a bland response to a detailed timeline and questions, then proceed to complain about omissions.

Introduction
I'm a research technician in the U.S. preparing to go to medical school. On the web, I often go by the screen name kkendd. Please don't ask what that means; it really is just a random sequence of letters that I came up with many years ago during the dial-up era when I began to form an online presence, and is most definitely NOT related to the classic video game KKND.

I enjoy modelling and painting 28mm-scale miniatures, and lately have been working on Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 series miniatures.

I also am a gadget enthusiast, and am nerdy enough to enjoy customizing them. I try to keep up with the latest tech news. I use a custom built desktop, built by me.

I love traveling, although I have little time to go anywhere these days.

Lastly, I make sure I don't lose my Asian-ness by watching the latest Japanese anime.

I'm fluent in English and Korean, and can manage to communicate in the most basic way in Japanese.

I run a Twitter account in Korean (@kkendd). My Google+, on the other hand, will almost exclusively be in English.
Bragging rights
I was on a local newspaper when I was in highschool; My painted miniature was presented on the BBC; I graduated from the University of Notre Dame; I have a Master's Degree in science.

The popular form of Korean chicken ribs are cooked on iron griddle, but according to the locals in Chuncheon, the home of chicken ribs, the original dish is cooked on charcoal grill. I've never had chicken cooked on stone placed on top of the grill, but was pleasantly surprised. For those who love the griddle cooked chicken ribs, I recommend trying the "original" form as well. It's different, and it's good.

Teddy hotel is a decent hotel with giant teddy bears everywhere. The rooms are comfortably large, and some rooms feature whirlpool bathtubs. Breakfast buffet is also included. I did not play golf here, but I've heard good things about the country club. The pool was rather disappointing, however. All in all, Teddy valley hotel was a satisfactory experience with bonus teddy bear cuteness.

Decent course with moderate difficulty. The greens can be a little complicated, but the way there is forgiving. The soil is very soft, perhaps to a fault. The high altitude and island breeze makes the environment enjoyable even in summer, if your tee time is early. The humidity becomes unbearable later in the day, however. Our caddie provided excellent service, and we had a good time.

Hallim park is part botanical garden, mini zoo, and culture center. The majority of Hallim is fairly average, but the jewel of the park is its rich bonsai collection. There's an extensive range of bonsai trees at display, some of them are over 300 years old. To those unfamiliar with bonsai trees, they may just be miniature trees; but to those who know the value of these works of art, these bonsai trees are literally priceless. In fact, it's almost unbelievable how openly accessible these trees are to the guests, considering their value and need for extreme care. If you're planning on visiting, briefly study the artistry before your trip to enhance the enjoyment. This is a one-of-a-kind collection.

Like most people, I visited Mawon to try the exotic horse meat. As expected, the meat was very lean, but pleasantly was not tough. In fact, the meat was soft and tasteful, which made it perfect to be consumed raw. The grilled meat was also excellent, but the burger was rather disappointing. If you're like me and want to try every horse meat dish the restaurant has to offer, then go with the course meal. Highly recommended for adventurous foodies.

Every great sushi chef has a unique selection of dishes for his omakase service. Sushi Hoshikai's master chef Lim was knowledgeable, delicate, and skillful. Many of his creations displayed a hint of Jeju's taste, combined seamlessly with his Kyoto trained deliciousness. As an added bonus, the complimentary cold matcha served throughout the dinner is outstanding. There's no doubt Sushi Hoshikai is the best sushi restaurant in Jeju.

Everything here is fresh! The seaweed soup, served as an appetizer of sorts, was the signal of a good start. Then came the fish, both baked and stewed, and they were both excellent. I also had Jeju's famous abalone soup, which was possibly the best dish on an already delicious table. The restaurant had a dedicated parking lot, and also features electric car charging stations. There's also free Wi-Fi.
