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.

Drumpf has run most of his campaign by going from one conspiracy to another. He's convinced that there is something astronomically nefarious in those missing emails, and he knows from all the people shouting for Hillary's lynching at the GOP convention that this is a really popular conspiracy with this supporters. The complete and total absence of factual support for this conspiracy is of no consequence to him.

Exact location? Sign me up for non-emergency use, please.

I never realized how shitty my phone's GPS was (it was always good enough for driving), until I started playing this fucking new game (you know the one). I can literally touch a certain gym's real-world counterpart with my hand, but in the game, I'm running back and forth from one side of it to the other, always "too far away."

Unless you actually provide some evidence to support your conspiracy, this is my final reply to you in this JE discussion.

I will point out that I have never accused you of trolling in this JE. I gave you the benefit of the doubt - repeatedly - that perhaps you actually had some evidence to support your conspiracy. I even gave you repeated opportunities to choose other angles from which to attack Hillary, and you passed on those as well. You claimed that the wikileaks dump would support your conspiracy, yet there is absolutely no reason to believe that as the dump has already been parsed through by various organizations of all different political stripes from all over the world and none of them have found any such evidence.

As I've said before, Hillary is no saint. I'm not a big fan of hers and see plenty wrong with her. Why you insist on propagating fact-free conspiracies is the big question here when there is so much supported fodder you could use instead.

Nobody can save KMart or Sears.

You're right on KMart, it is a dead duck. I disagree on Sears, though. Sears could be saved by a competent CEO with knowledge of how retail works. Instead they have a Randian maniac who cannot be bothered to even show up in person to board meetings (preferring instead to yell at the board members over a videoconference connection). There are plenty of worthwhile assets belonging to Sears; if a competent person was in charge the company could be made relevant again. Instead it is circling the drain at a higher rate than before.

$4.3M seems like a deal if he was able to keep it open another year

He has utterly trashed the company, he started on autopilot and now he is in accelerated decay. He gets the pay because he can demand it as he owns more of the company than does the board and they can't refuse anything he wants to do - they can't even fire him. It is still open in spite of what he has done, not because of it. I don't know if you are been in a Sears in the past few years but he has pretty much turned the stores into Lord of the Flies between the very few employees that are around. It's not a pleasant experience to for customers to see and its even worse for the employees to experience.

At this point I'm pretty sure we've seen the last of MH42 and his conspiracy. He expected since he was spouting it off in this site - which some time ago became a conservative echo chamber - that nobody would challenge him on it. He has had plenty of opportunity to try to back it up (even though we all know he cannot) with facts. He won't come back to this thread as he knows it will be put right back in his face again.

Which is a shame. MH42 didn't used to operate like this.

Is that how you are admitting that you have absolutely zero evidence to support your earlier conspiracy? If you are trying to convince me that it is a good idea to have a discussion with you, you aren't doing a good job of it. Again, there is no shortage of actual problems with Hillary; just pick one and go after it. Don't repeat fact-free conspiracies in the hopes that they will become valid through pure repetition - it only makes you look worse.
