Knock yourselves out
It is this year's presidential election. The fanatics on both sides are positively spinning out of control.
And I am discovering my apparently unique ability to bring out their inner child that maybe, until now, they never realized was there. Wow! But there it is! Shouting, screaming, kicking...
Just did a quick check. Doesn't really look good for Don. But maybe congress and state legislators can keep things under control. Let's hope they can hold off a convention for at least eight more years, or you can kiss the Bill of Rights adios
Shit! I didn't know ol' boy left. That's not cool.
What's the word for those so desperately grasping at straws, Bush, Cheney, Nader, anything at all avoid the truth in why they lose elections? They will not ever accept that it is because they suck. They put up weak candidates, Humphrey, Carter, Mondale, Dukakis, Gore, that present no opposition to the other side, and demand we all play along. This is why republicans do, and Trump can win*. It is that simple. And people like me will always catch shit for seeing through the charade.
*personally I think it's intentional as part of their tag team methods
Well, since it is well documented I am the literary midget of Slashdot, I found an article, courtesy MH42 (a person who is either the most sincere, or the best troll in these parts. I kid, man. You're cool), That can explain my thoughts far better than I can, in spite of the minor quibbles I have over third party voting, and maybe one or two little things that would just be distraction from the overall message. See, I really do know how to compromise, where it is merited. So, enjoy, and STFU! you dumbasses! Full apologies to and in memory of our best friend Red. I hope he comes back some day, and Smith too, maybe then we will see the return of
And stay out of the dark alleys if you don't want to suffer a most painful death.
thank you, and good night ladies
No way, man! You're asking for far too much way too fast!
"Progress for the sake of progress must be discouraged. Let us preserve what must be preserved, perfect what can be perfected, and prune practices that ought to be prohibited."
Make Bernie VP? I kinda prefer Warren. This is entirely within the context of something like, which is Freddy Krueger's good side? But since "the devil we know" is the game here, let's pick the best devil, right? Call it a fashion statement.
Like Linux on the desktop, will this be the year the democrats honor the platform? I mean, to save a lot of time, they only need to say one magic word to win, Beetlejuice!
Obviously he was high on drugs
Keep your tires properly inflated
Always use your seat belt
If you drive a nice car, wear a chauffeur's cap, and seat all passengers in back.
And make damn sure to check your tail lights before leaving the house! It also would help if the covers can resist a couple of whacks with the billy club. Shopping tip - Try to replace the bulbs with multiple LEDs. They last much longer and are harder to knock out.
Do not even have a gun near by, much less on your person. The permit means nothing, it is confetti.
Keep your hands UP! at all times.
Good luck and safe trip
I think the election is scrambling peoples' brains. They seem to feel the need to lash out, against anything, and I'm the flavor of the week with one of them. I'm sure he'll find something else to occupy himself eventually. In the meantime, why not roll with it, right?
One of these will win the election for the other.
The democrats have a problem. If the election swings too far their way, congress will become very lopsided, and they will no longer be able to blame the republicans for obstruction. The entire rotating villain game goes out the window. They almost fucked it up in 2008, but there are enough bourbon democrats to keep the balance, and discourage the voters from participating, thus handing congress over to the "opposition", just the right amount. Now they need to tamp down the enthusiasm just enough to keep congress as close to 50/50 as possible, the FBI report being the latest example. It was a duzy, almost reveals too much about selective enforcement of the law, but it's still working. Partly because... Trump. Mention the name and all is forgotten. The distraction works. Can't argue with success. What you always end up with though is the most wretched of the wretched. And it effectively has half the population battling the other with pure distraction politics. We have an election where the biggest loser wins.
Just google the story... stories, it turns out.
Obviously some people are allowing themselves be manipulated into doing stupid shit, costing a great deal of credibility, which is probably the intention. Divide and conquer never fails.
If the choices for president were Democrat Hillary Clinton, Republican Donald Trump, and a Giant Meteor hitting the earth, which would you choose?
Hillary Clinton ----------------- 43%
Donald Trump ----------------- 38%
Giant Meteor hitting earth -- 13%
Not sure ----------------------- 7%
Other polls show Johnson and Stein getting 5% and 2% respectively
Amongst independents the Giant Meteor gets 27%, fairly close to a three way tie.
What advantage does the Giant Meteor offer over the others? I believe the answer is obvious.
Two JEs for the price of one:
People are questioning why Sanders won't just endorse Clinton. It should be obvious, but apparently not. It's still the regular culprit, money. When he endorses Clinton, the money and attention from the part of his sect which will never vote for her anyway that he brings into the party will dry up and go to Stein. The game has to run for as long as possible. Can't let third party distractions get in the way. It's that simple*.
*yeah, I know how you hate that word since it grates against your expensive edumacation and personal bias, so feel free to write it off as a troll and save your breath, and your keyboard
He will be out of the way soon, leaving Hillary standing out there all by herself. Maybe it was a good thing the Greens haven't gotten much attention while watching the majors chew themselves up. The leftovers can be easy pickings. Hope springs eternal, but no doubt will be plowed under once again on Black Tuesday.
And don't worry about Trump. If he wins, he'll be calling Hillary every five minutes for advice.
He just wants her to get her own apartment...
It will be years before anything happens anyway, if at all. If the bubble pops in September, it won't be from this.
The star of riches is shining upon you.
