Not that it matters, no matter who wins, ( Ego A or Ego B ) we all lose anyway.
You realize there are more options than Hillary or Trump, right? I understand that any of those candidates or parties are an absolute long shot for the presidency, but if you think we're fucked if either Hillary or Trump get in, why not "waste" your vote on one of the other candidates, and get a few of your friends and relatives to join you. It may not happen this election, but if the "outsider" parties start gaining traction we may be able to get out of the two-party-system hellhole.
but I heard it has a lot of oil.
Sounds like they need some Freedom(TM)
And nothing of value was lost.
Dammit, I was gonna say that!
I've built several dozen pcs over the last 16-17 years and I enjoy it
Couldn't agree more. The only part about the ridiculous article I agree with is the hunting and picking components, then price-shopping to get the best deal. It's not hard to blow an entire Saturday researching, hunting, and buying computer components.
The rest of the "Article" reads like a teenager trying to fix his four-wheeler. "Waaaaaaa, this is hard" "I dropped my wrench." "Which way to I turn a bolt to loosen it?" "What color is oil supposed to be?" "My hands got dirty."
"That's why I recommend Apple products..." Fucker probably pays Jiffy Lube to change his oil and windshield wipers too.
How about some numbers:
Number of law enforcement officers in the US: 765,000
Number of LEO related deaths last year: 1,000
Number of blacks in the US: 37,685,840
Number of black gang members in the US: 279,000
Blacks that are gang members:
Number of gang related deaths last year: 2000
Number caused by blacks: 600 (This assumes the same ratio of total gang members vs black gang members, 31%)
I'm not sure the point I was trying to make, but numbers are interesting, nonetheless. (I was going to just not post this, after forgetting what my point was, but I wasted too much time digging through the internet for numbers) WP has a good article analyzing the all police involved shootings in 2015: http://www.washingtonpost.com/...
Hint: Police keep killing folks. Many of them unarmed, in handcuffs, and mostly black

Now, I can't disagree, police killing people is a problem, but why does race ALWAYS have to play a part? According to this 100 (ish) people were killed by police last month. 35 white, 27 black, 19 latino. Why do we only care about the black ones?
All cops are the problem though, because even if they aren't racist killers themselves they're aiding and abetting the ones who are.
This is going to get me flamed, but I'm past the point of giving a crap. Let's change out a few words here and see how it works
All blacks are the problem though, because even if they aren't gang bangers and killers themselves they're aiding and abetting the ones who are.
Let's try a less inflammatory one
All programmers are the problem though, because even if they aren't bad programmers themselves they're aiding and abetting the ones who are.
There are good people and bad people, good cops and bad cops, good programmers and bad programmers. How about we quit painting with such a broad brush?
What infuriates me is the lack of accountability. I understand that cops have a shitty job, and I understand that the use of force is probably justified the majority of the time. Even if the majority of them are justified, that leaves a percentage that aren't. Where is the accountability for those? On the other hand, where is the accountability for the citizens dancing and taunting police officers after they came to stop a local 7-11 from being looted, while the officer's brothers are laying dead?
Republican primary voters weren't interested in traditional candidates.
The Republican primary was more akin to a Reality TV competition than an actual democratic process. If you could smash together an episode of Jerry Springer, Celebrity Apprentice, and American Idol you'd have a pretty close representation of the Republican primary process. And, like every other reality TV show, American sheep are just lapping it up.
