The raw hate and fear of a clinton presidency is like the fever dream of someone who has been mainlining rush limbaugh and glen beck for a decade.

Totally agree. Even the Pope said journalism/media (if you can call it that) can be terrorism too. A word like that might already be overused and he might be stating the obvious. But very few people with his reach have done so. But he's right terrorism is about creating fear at a large scale and at least some media does that too.

OK, so let me be clear I'm in Europe. So I might have it wrong, but I'll give my perspective.

I totally agree things like ISIS are a total fuck up. I'm just saying, you have a 2 party system and both parties and their candidates suck.

It's a history of fucks ups, something like 40 years of them, the parties don't seem to matter at all.

My perspective is: the system is currently fundamentally broken. And I see to few people in the US trying to fix it. I haven't done even hours of research, but maybe something like Wolf PAC might solve your problems. It might be a small step and it will take a long time, but at least people would be doing something.

I wouldn't be surprised that the problems you are having now with racism and protests are just a small in comparison to what is coming if this graph is to be believed: http://i1.wp.com/andrewmcafee....

This is still true:

"Quote from Netflix on their blog regarding this:

Here’s a snapshot: x265 and libvpx demonstrate superior compression performance compared to x264, with bitrate savings reaching up to 50% especially at the higher resolutions. x265 outperforms libvpx for almost all resolutions and quality metrics, but the performance gap narrows (or even reverses) at 1080p."

Poppycock.

Our government doesn't declare war. We just invent some moralistic rationales about the "threat" to our "security" and then we crank up our mass media propaganda system to "sell" the war before we attack. :(

Yep, declare war on a thing/word/concept that will solve everything. ;-)

War on drugs, war on terror, what's next ?
