How does the fact that someone else makes more money than you do make you a slave? Be specific. Try to be intellectually coherent, too. Oh, and while you're at it, you make more money than most people in the entire world ... is your willingness to accept that money making other people slaves? No? I see.

Because if you look at who the emails are from, according to TFS, none are from Hillary. The headline is clickbait.

They're not from her, but they're directly or indirectly all ABOUT her and the DNC's unwavering Coronate Hillary position. What else did you think was going to be the focus of the matter? Yoga and wedding plans? Right.

I didn't know that nominating the primary candidate with the most votes of any party in a democratic election was a "coronation"

It has the "coronation" feel to it because it's been a foregone conclusion since before Sanders suddenly woke up one morning and decided he was a Democrat and joined the party so he could push Hillary into a more publicly-visible lefty posture. He had no chance of beating the Clinton machine and the fully assembled corporate, media, and entertainment industry backers that had already picked her, and he knew it.

There might be sensitive or personal information that he doesn't think should be made public

Since when has that stopped him?

The ONLY consideration on his part is whether he's got his hands on something he can personally leverage to improve his own situation and stick himself back into public focus.

All of the Birkenstock wearing hippies will have to buy their overpriced status symbols somewhere else. The horror!

The issue here, really, was that some vendors were actually willing to discount Birkenstock products instead of sticking to full retail price - and that made BIrkenstock's brick-and-mortar and small-web-site retailers cranky. So Birkenstock would rather lose a huge outlet for their products than lose a lot of smaller ones that don't want to compete on price. That's their call. But this is only marginally if at all about knock-offs. This is about competition and price, and Birkenstock is chopping off a venue where shoppers might save a few dollars on shoes so they could spend it on tofu instead.

Sure a filter that spares you from having to read the words in front of you would make it a little quicker. But there is no way to purchase from a third party vendor at Amazon without knowing that's exactly what you're doing. If you don't like third party sellers, don't click "Add To Cart" on those items. How hard is that, really?

Right there in front of you in writing are instructions on how to have UPS stop at your door and pick up the item you're returning. Yes, it's a shame an unscrupulous third party sold you a counterfeit item. But don't pretend Amazon doesn't have mechanisms in place to have that UPS driver pick up your return. They do it every day.

Clearly an idea by someone who has no clue about religious sensitivities, congregations, and the like.

Would those be the delicate religious sensitivities that already have huge numbers of congregations helping to fund their tax-free social club by renting out space for cell phone antenna clusters? Those religious sensitivities? Please.

Mitigating his central point by dismissively pointing out things he thinks are meaningless doesn't really change his central point, does it? He knows that stuff, and doesn't care. Doesn't think they matter, and is telling you, if you care about the person chosen, that you're a "dumb fuck." How much more about his take on things do you need to grasp what he thinks of you?

I don't think either one has any major health problems

Not counting Clinton's serious brain problem, which put her out of action for quite a while, nearly killed her, and forced her to wear ultra-heavy glasses to pull her eyesight back into alignment. And, of course, have you watched any of her several uncontrollable coughing fits, bad enough that she's had to leave the stage where she's appearing? Neither are spring chickens, but I think she has more miles on her, health-wise.
