You can
Did you watch the Dem Convention, they had illegal aliens on stage as speakers and then a key speaker encouraged illegal immigrants to support Hillary, most (many) states don't require I D, to register to vote

Jesus, Dave, come on. Don't attack someone who has, by and large (especially as of late) been attempting to contribute to conversation. You know you're just going to get yourself in trouble. Be the bigger person.

abject stupidity trying to masquerade itself as truth is what bothers me.

I imagine you'd likely have to read my posts in order to laugh at them, and by your interpretation of them, I'm going to assume you haven't. It won't surprise me if/when Clinton wins, and I don't particularly prefer Trump.

Additionally, I think this is probably the longest exchange I've ever had with you here, so I can't imagine how you've managed to build up this hostility already, haha.

Hm, would you like to engage on what you think I've said that's untrue? As I said at the end of that monstrosity of a post: I wrote that in order to engage with you all on those subjects, and if I'm wrong, I'd like to be called out for it (though I believe I can defend those points).

Or you can keyboard-yell more at me, haha. Either works

Seriously, Dave. Of all the people to direct anger at for being disingenuous and intellectually dishonest, Caleb is an odd choice.

If you can't discuss things without insulting people, cool off until you can.

and i thought i was pretty clearly speaking to the trump supporters in general here, not caleb specifically.

whatever. i gotta be honest and say i stand by every word i said tonight, drunk or not. the way they disappeared the minute trump started talking about sexually assaulting people and are now acting like it never happened and they have some high horse to sit on now, they should be fucking embarrassed to come back here and act like they have some reason to gloat. they're fucking emails. your candidate has openly admitted to sexually assaulting people. fuck this bullshit.

I think the return of the interference repubes in hiding must have gotten to you 😛

But I don't think Caleb is even remotely part of that bunch.

this is a true statement


it seems like when you see posts you don't favor often you just label it trolling

when there is a lot of real trolling by people agree with, that gets overlooked.

Also, I agree with everyone else's frustration at the Trump people leaving for weeks and then showing up and trolling tonight. Its lame as hell.

He was a private citizen talking in hypotheticals. You'll hear worse on a middle school playground.

I'm allowed to come and go as I please. U2 chickened out at Dreamforce from playing new tunes. I found other reading outlets for news.

Let's face it, you need a foil (me and bob) to take out your angst. The liberal instinct to attack has been absent without us here. The thread got stale.

It's really fascinating sociologically to me to see how the thread activity is amped up in the past 10 hours because you have an opposing force. Don't act like you're not entertained.

I hate to say it, I really fucking do, but this election has made me so numb to verbal abuse, stupidity, corruption and borderline supervillainy that I can't trust myself to make a prudent decision with my available information.

Scrolling through all of that, all I want to do is shrug. I mean, it's a lot of bad stuff, sure, but then I look over to Trump, an overgrown adolescent with terrible platforms (is that even the right word for his vague proposals?), no tact, no political experience and some of the most uninformed supporters in recent memory and I just want to take a shower. What an awful candidate.

So one thing Hillary has going for her is that she isn't Trump. Fantastic. Then what? Well, a lot of Democrats are hitting a wall there. My apathy is nothing personal; as I said before, the emails and "corruption" mean nothing to me at this point. Everyone involved in this election has done or said something I find morally reprehensible, so at least impress me with some exciting policies and...nope. That's not happening either. Never has. I scanned through her policies back in January and nothing in her speeches nor those awful debates changed my mind. She's more in line with my thinking than Trump of course, but not enough to make me an active supporter. I fucking hate her donors too. Talk about a basket of deplorables, holy shit.

BTW, the Clinton campaign will drop a video of Trump lighting puppies on fire in Putin's backyard sometime before the election, so none of this matters. Trump will lose the election, handily. This campaign has been decided by gossip rags since day 1 and that will be the case until the bitter end. That's why the debates were shit. Clinton will have the last word and Trump's campaign will be finished. There's got to be a whole storage locker of dirt on this guy that hasn't been released yet.

For what it's worth, this is a position I can completely and totally respect. I think I come off more hard-line anti-Clinton than I am. It's not, "If you're voting for Clinton you're a mindless shill who doesn't love AMURKA!" with me. I just want more people to actually walk through the value judgment they're making, like you did, instead of just trying to whitewash what is a very, very sordid history.

I have grown to pretty much hate the Clintons. I think they're corrupt on levels that could only be considered Nixonian if you wanted to be quite unfair to Nixon.

But the other person is a fuckin reality tv star. I completely understand your moral calculus, here.

I only really lose patience when people who are ostensibly "liberal" in a classical sense, and who generally bemoan corruption and cold calculation for gain at to the detriment of those less powerful, suddenly begin shedding their principles like a sweater in the sun the minute the Democratic candidate was Clinton.

One minute it was, "Citizens United is ruining this country!" and now it's, "but can you really PROVE it was a quid pro quo...?"

Your mental calculus is totally fair to me.

I can't understand being *enthusiastic* for either candidate. Frankly, though, I can understand how decent, moral people can find themselves on either side of this election. As long as a person can step back and honestly recognize the valid criticisms of his/her candidate, they're ok w/ me this year.
