I realize you have a job and don't see everything that goes on here. I am certainly no angel nor do i portray myself as one. However, there is a lot of shit that i see here that, in my opinion, gets overlooked. No fault to you, but it does happen. I am not the kind of person to hit the "report a post to a moderator" button, however, if the moderator is going to call me out twice in a week over what they feel is "sexist", then maybe i should?
yes, you should. You can't complain about a lack of moderation, but sit there and do nothing to draw the moderator's attention to it.

Yet this poster who posted that is still here.

The poster who is still here didn't discuss all the positives about the hypothetical assassination of one of our political candidates.

'memba that? 'memba?

There is officially a TrumpTV sign in the press row at the Midtown Hilton, site of Trump's Sad! party.

Oh, Republicans. Your candidate has used you to set up a television network for himself and never had any intention of ever being President.

Sad!

Sounds like the North Carolina GOP has been very successful in suppressing the vote there. Glad Democrats sent them money though!

You just don't let up, do you, Peef?

It was the right thing to do in the eyes of some. You didn't agree, got it. They're shitty people, I agree. They're doing shitty things, I agree. The people that sent them 10,000 to fix a building that was vandalized did NOT fund them.

Ok, so not an expert on US elections, so someone please contextualise for me... Trump up by tens of thousands in initial counts in Indiana and Kentucky. Very early days, I know, but 43000 vs 16000 is still a bit of a shock.
Is this a representative chunk of votes for those states? Or do certain districts get their votes counted sooner than others, and those early counts are red districts?
Some context, you gurus!?

Here is one of many posts where someone used the "c" word:

http://www.u2interference.com/forums...ml#post8087077

Imagine if a TRUMP voter had done this about HRC, i suspect there would be some "vacations" handed out from by the Mod along with a massive pile-on from all of the HRC supporters.

Here is another instance:

http://www.u2interference.com/forums...ml#post8110162

Now we're calling Bernie Sanders the "c" word? Classy!

http://www.u2interference.com/forums...ml#post8081891

I don't even know what to say about this post, so many insults in one place, wow

http://www.u2interference.com/forums...ml#post8072172

Should i keep going?

Wow, I guess you really do have a blind spot on this. Do you really not see the problem with the intentionally negative portrayal of a real-life woman as a witch?

One percent or precincts reporting, and Clinton was never going to win Kentucky anyway.

Indiana and Kentucky are deep red states, so it is expected that Trump wins them. And yes, with a ~70% to ~20% vote. So no news here, for now.
