I seriously hope none of my peers are participating in these absurd protests. I understand the need to protest when something unfair has happened and there's a tangible outcome but this isn't that.

I think the protesters mean well, but I think they need to more clearly define their mission. If it is to protest the results of the election, that is misguided. However, I do see the value of immigrants/Muslims/LGBT/Latino people, etc to come together and show Trump that they deserve to have their voices heard and factored in his decisions as a President given the rhetoric he used against these very groups during the election.

Are you joking? Chicago and Oakland are out of control, Portland was declared a riot and idiot protestors started fighting amongst themselves, in LA an officer was assaulted... the info is out there you just need to look. The police can't stop it cold because 1) in some cities they are understaffed and 2) if they tried the very same people would whine about police brutality

The cool thing about America is that people can freely protest for whatever they want

"Absurd protest"? Do you even know why these people are protesting OP and why they are protesting. Have you spoke to each one of them? Or do you feel it is okay to lump all of them together as "bunch of privileged millennials/sore losers/whiners"? I am a gay immigrant and I don't support these protests but shaming that way like you are doing is minimizing the legitimate fears and frustrations of many minorities . Please be a bit more empathetic and assuring in your tone at least rather than being so judgmental

Kudos P1 for bringing us back on topic. But consider your language here. People "melting down" and "terrorizing" cities in peaceful protest is their constitutional right. And it is the bedrock of our nation. Think Boston Tea Party, MLK, Vietnam, Million Man March. All I'm saying is you cannot ignore that. And obviously we haven't.

I don't think you understand what the protests are about. They are making a stand that they will not watch their civil liberties be eroded. They aren't challenging his election.

The popular vote would be different if those were the rules campaigns played by. They would spend all their time campaigning in populous states and the entire Midwest would be forgotten (again). They would pander to just the biggest cities and promise them the moon to get elected

Anyone here know what the membership rates are for the in-town country clubs (e.g., Cherokee, Capital City, PDC, Ansley, Druid Hills)? Looking for rough estimates of the initial membership fee and annual dues / other costs. Fiancé and I are both in our early 30s if that matters.
