Election Day

number of injured just doubled to more than 400

watching a live las vegas news feed

Anyone else subscribe to the daily Federal Register?

i voted for them both.

i love Bernie and i love Hillary. both are great; both are flawed.

isn't the constant squabbling a zero sum game? maybe i don't know what that means. all i know is i skip over the bernie bashing and skip over the hillary bashing. i feel it more acutely with Hillary right now because of the increased attention due to her book coming out. i feel the sexism. nobody that i can think of has taken more unwarranted criticism from the left than Hillary Clinton. for decades and decades there has been a campaign of propaganda and i believe much of it has been internalized by leftists with purist tendencies.

we are not going to get a perfect candidate. but we can, and should, get a winning candidate. Lots of them! 2018, 2020, are so important. we just need to be together. it's just so important. the country is going down the tubes under trump and republicans. please.

i hate them so much.

i had to turn it off. sessions said "illegal alien" about 5 times in the 30 to 60 seconds i kept it on.

fuck them. absolutely fuming. my son came out of his room and asked me if i was all right. no, no i am not. i don't live in my country anymore.

Posted per request. there is very little else at the link

what do you when

you're a little anal about grammar and spelling, and you like a post or a tweet or whatever, and it has this error that just LEAPS at your eyes and offends your inner spelling nerd, and you wanna like it, or rec it, but you really want to correct it?

here's a tweet:
Jail Donald Drumpf‏ @DTrumpExposed
Replying to @DTrumpExposed @realDonaldTrump

If you really believe that Russian medalling is OK then you should study history.


medalling. not a word, not a word. but i like the message. i think i know that @realDonaldTrump never reads the replies to his tweets, but i still like doing it and seeing that others do it, because maybe he does, and maybe he will either get a clue (haha, ain't happening), or melt down entirely (much more likely imo)

how hard is it to right click on the word that has the red squiggly line under it? maybe you don't get that on phones and phones are probably where most tweets come from.

anyhow. gone on and on about something really trivial. i think i just want some validation that i am not the only one who's this way.

LOLGOP on twitter just quoted this

and i love it
