Comment Re:Let's be clear on what we mean by election hack (Score 1) 250

Thats true but they were also used as a club.... that, along with the collusion with the major media outlets (providing access in return for not covering Bernie, always displaying the electoral count with super delegates to make people feel like voting for him was hopeless and providing Hillary with the questions to a debate ahead of time).

If super delegates didn't exist at least part of that collusion would have been considerably less effective and we might have had a different outcome... and of course that doesn't even get into the question of voter suppression and the mysterious access that each campaign had to each others data due to a system put in place by Hillary's supporters.

Everything about that primary stunk to high heaven but we already knew that.

If they act now they get pence in office for a nice long time and there is plenty of time for the country to forget about Trump before the midterms. If you are worried that his lack of popularity and these scandals and all these pissed off constituents in town hall meetings might result in you losing your position, or your party losing its majority, you might consider acting.

Wait too long and the midterms will loom large and who knows what Trump might be up to. Its a tricky question and I can't put myself in the shoe's of the republican senators but if keeping Trump in place looks like it might cost them the majority in the senate they will have to move.

Human contact is extremely important and its difficult to maintain a close and intimate relationship with someone without the reinforcement of sex, its kind of built into our brain chemistry. Now if both partners are of a low sex drive variety then maybe its workable, you find other ways to be intimate and close but if one partner wants sex and the other is un-interested it can create a much more serious issue. This is only made worse when compounded by the gender stereotype that men want sex all the time... if its the man with a low or non existent sex drive it can create even more tension in the relationship. Ultimately this can cause the relationship to fail and leave the partner with low sex drive feeling like its not worth it to try to engage with someone else... which keeps them from the intimacy and contact that, as a human, they still require.

Its nearly impossible to hire good engineers where I live despite the fact that there are a ton of them, because they all have excellent jobs. Maybe there is a surplus elsewhere in the country but unless you are willing to move here that doesn't do me a whole lot of good.

If all these extra skilled workers were willing to move where the jobs are (and yes, its more expensive to live here) then maybe that would solve the issue, but I dont see many resumes from Peoria.

I think there is a lack of mobility in the workforce that does contribute to the problem.
