Comment Re:32% would vote clinton (Score 1) 83

Still better than pissing my pants in terror.

Seriously though, under Hillary, the stock market's not gonna collapse, and ISIS aren't going to overrun the country. She's not going to be able to pass any meaningful gun control and I highly doubt any 'upgrades' to Obamacare are in play 'til at least 2020. Hell, she probably won't even have the Senate either, which means the SC isn't in play til 2020 either.

Similarly, most of Trumps foreign policy BS will be steamrolled by DoD inertia, he's not going to institute a theocracy and he ain't going to be Putin's BFF.

If enough people do it the major parties will be forced to actually represent the people

It won't happen. People like tribalism, especially in a representative democracy. If you were going to spend more than 5 minutes attention on who's running for president, you'd just do it yourself.

Should espionage and violation of national security for political gain ever be something joked about by a major party Presidential candidate?

So instead of the candidate who made an already-made-several-times-by-other-people joke, you prefer the candidate who looks you in the eye and knowingly, deliberately, repeatedly lies to you about her handling of matters related to espionage and national security? Why?

As opposed to waiting six months at a time for Clinton to even hold a press conference (it's been that long - that's how scared she is of her own supporting media) and then knowing, based on years of examples, that quite a bit of what she says are bald-faced lies? And, you're not scared of HER scary proposals? She's gleefully in favor of infringing on constitutionally protected rights, supports nationally self-destructive immigration policies, and wants to see the government involved in wildly more private sector activities, at both the business and personal level. She also "says a ton of things," but because it's done in that focus-group-tuned, calculating Clinton way, it's actually a lot more sinister.

What does the engineering difference between those two styles of air brakes have to do with the judgement call of when or whether to apply brakes in the first place? Is the fact that a guy in Nice, France chose to run down 84 people with an air-brake-equipped truck just an engineering failure, as far as you're concerned?

No, it's saying they can't promise them the quality of the offer. Other emails draw attention to the fact that the sorts of appointments that can be handed out are going fast, and there's even a "last call" to staffers to get them the donor names/numbers so they can get it wrapped up. Yeah, it's relevant, because the very act of talking about the quality of the appointments left to dole out conveys the routine-ness of the DNC's activities in this regard.
