That's not lying, that's disputing the facts.

The innaugration photos were "liberal narrative" at it's best. Bowling green was one of those "foiled by the FBI" things that the liberal media is happily engaging in itself this very moment.

The whole "Russia" thing is simply delusional. No one that has ever stepped out the liberal bubble takes it seriously. A good portion of the country has hated Hillary since she was first lady. They didn't need any encouragement from the Russians.

OMG a wait in line at the DMV. That never happens to "privileged people". Save your sob story. We've all been there. It's just that it's not an option for most of us because we have to DRIVE to WORK. The sh*t isn't optional so we put up with it. We don't whine and make excuses about it.

What you're describing is pandering to the "can't be bothered" crowd. They simply don't value voting. That's their problem, not society's problem.

Obama deported plenty without them. This is the problem with people on both sides. They only see what they want to see. Their preferred source of propaganda will feed into this.

Nearly all sources of "journalism" are now shameless party rags that have a predefined narrative. Anything outside the narrative gets dropped. They also may tell blatant falsehoods. Their version of the facts may bear no resemblance to reality. Unless you have a first hand source of your own, it's difficult to catch onto this but very glaring once it happens.

So called "news" has become entertainment and media has cranked up the nonsense in order to keep eyeballs.

Both sides are equally rubbish. You need to see the same story from different bias points just to get something remotely reasonable.

After the last election, this should be obvious to anyone with any sort of capacity for independent thought.

So, some Ivory tower weenies are whining that something isn't perfect therefore it must be rubbished as a menace. Where have we heard this before? This should be ancient news to all of the peanut gallery here. Anyone here buying into this nonsense should just hand in your geek card now.

I'm the kind of person they claim to be championing and I say they need to STFU and try something else. They might suck at it less.

Watch Big Bang Theory sometime.

We still have this stupid idea (encouraged by mass media) that the ER is "the place to go" if you suffer the tiniest little mishap. The fact that patients may now be required to pay a trifling co-pay doesn't really alter the equation all that much.

That moron Wolowitz also needs to carry an Epipen and Sheldon should have one in his First Aid kit.

No. Esoteric is something that the vast majority of users don't use and have never heard of and it would never occur to them to do.

This is why Macs can be so useful. The vast majority of consumer users don't need obscure vertical apps or an overwrought word processor. Using a spreadsheet doesn't even occur to them.

Even among actual business users, more esoteric spreadsheet functions are not relevant and would probably be considered backwards and cludgey. This is 2016. We have moved past the single user desktop mentality of the 80s.
