Sooo, you want a universe where Washington got access to the Fountain of Youth and people keep voting him into the presidency against his will?
*headdesk* Really? I did NOT know that. Not at alllllll. I certainly wasn't both expressing my opinion on the actual event and at the same time taking a jab at the ubiquity of cat pictures on the internet. Which of course subsequently gets labeled troll by idiots to dense to figure out my position. Or by people who want the people who killed her to get away with it. Hard to say.
I was going to offer my condolences. I was going to say how this was a great loss. I was going to say that the barbarians responsible should be hunted down like the dogs they are. But then I saw the cat pictures.
It is however, both much easier to fuck up doing and much more expensive per fuckup.
Because between 5 and 10% of convicted felons are actually innocent of the crime they were convicted of. Given the current state of laws in the US, saying they are wholly innocent of any lawbreaking is insane. In any case, that means that between 1 in 10 and 1 in 20 of people killed by the state should not have been, which is wholly unacceptable.
Which goes to show that Paul the elder is a fucking dunderhead. The chance of peace breaking out in 1908 Europe, oh sorry, the Middle East is about as likely as the Kardashians suddenly deciding not to act like media whores or ISIS to convert wholesale to Asatru.
Of course, the difference is that Nixon primarily did what he did out of paranoia that he would lose the election, which hilariously turned out to be baseless. Clinton does it to cover a multitude of other crimes.
Email Server. Really that's all you need to know. She turned over roughly half the emails, then DELETED the rest. When several of the emails reference second hand that she employed one of the premier private intelligence services in the world none of which is primarily touched upon by the turned over emails, this is a pretty big problem.
Except that A) his rants came in response to screeds just as racist by Jemsin(also functionally wrong given VD's actual heritage) and B) he said that a civilization composed of Jemsins would be utterly useless and without accomplishment. He did, however, call her a half savage.
If by "they" you mean one guy who was also an active GGer tweeted about it, and then your side started bitching about it like the coming of the Antichrist, than yes, "they" brought in GamerGate
Redshirts, literally "professional" fan fiction, won the year it came out. Moreover the same people pitching a bitch fit over Williamson's collection of internet schloch voted previously to Scalzis collection of itneret schlock previously and not a peep was made
Damn those dastardly time travelling GamerGaters. If only the used their time travel technology for good. Like finding out where Jimmy Hoffa is buried.
Bullshit. Rather, the only successful violence by those who weren't very obviously batshit fucking crazy(Batman shooter, Gillibrand shooter, that dude with the plane), ignoring the Unabomber as an outlier, was committed by right wing adherents. Just because the left can't organize its way out of a wet paper bag when it comes to committing violence doesn't mean the don't give it the old college try. *cough*Weathermen*cough*
Except clearly the anti-puppies didn't find it that great since they nominated two other novels in place of it. Moreover, since none of the people involved in SP3 had read it and its market penetration was not great enough to have a copy available for several of the people deciding the final slate to buy easily, the only way for them to nominate it would be to nominate something they hadn't read.
If by they you mean Wright's own adherents, then yes. SP certainly didn't slate 6 of Wright's works. Not to mention the nomination of Vox Day was done entirely on his own merit with his own slate. He was not part of SP3 at all.
