I think we just like to complain.

Oh that's fine, complaining about public transport seems to be somewhat of a national sport in Australia - judging by you guys, the US as well.

Just when I thought this whole rigmarole couldn't get any more convoluted or confusing: Ted Cruz sweeps Colorado amid Trump camp's disarray | US news | The Guardian

PS Sorry for bringing the thread back on topic.

I've never voted in a primary before, do I need to do anything or is being registered to vote enough?

Here, the primaries worked just like midterms. Granted, that's secondhand information since I'm not registered with a party. But, how it works in PA is totally up to your state party.

Yeah, I think last time they even had me down with the wrong name (mine being rather generic) and just went with it.

I'm slightly exaggerating. They were not paying particularly close attention and originally checked me in under the name above me in the registry (same last name) but I corrected them before I voted.

I was actually making the equivalent of an Internet dad joke. How'd they mess up "PhilsFan?"

"I met this humbling man called Abu [Bakhar al-Baghdadi]... and his son... he looks like Bill Gates *laughs*..."


That video clip really does make Bono look like a condescending turd.

He's kind of all over the spectrum.

"The refugee crisis poses an existential threat to Europe"

"European Unity is at risk"

"We need more weapons"

"We need a Marshall Plan for the current problems in the Middle East"

"Be proactive now to prevent future problems"

And of course

His campaign slogan
"America is not just a country but an idea"

I found his views refreshing with some substance and understanding. Better stated than some of our own politicians.

I hope a congressperson grills him on SOE release date when he testifies today.

They did, but try and pretend you aren't a U2 fan. Close your eyes, and you can hear his smirk lol.
