The official RNC video for the 2016 Presidential Campaign

If Republicans cannot handle CNBC, how can they handle Iran? Or Putin? Or ISIS?

Taking your ball and going home is not a strategy.

If we all lived like the Amish, would be facing Climate Change?

So, maybe the Amish were right all along.

Wow. The Hillary attack threads are multiplying. I wonder why.

Oh, here's why:

Her lead is going back up to 31 points, and 23.5 point in the poll of polls.

Hillary Clinton has followed a successful debate performance by rebounding in the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, regaining ground against Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden alike.

With anticipation surrounding Biden at a peak, Clinton has 54 percent support in interviews Thursday through Sunday, compared with Sandersí 23 percent and Bidenís 16 percent. Thatís 12 percentage points better for Clinton than her position a month ago, bringing her halfway back to her level of support in the spring and summer, before her September stumble.



Folks, she's winning because she's running a great campaign, and the Democratic party supports her.

Problem with my Windows 10 Start Button

My Start button works when it wants to. Why?

Why this Yankees fan is rooting hard for the Royals to win the WS

So that the stupid meme of how small market teams can't compete in MLB can be put to rest. It was bullshit. And the Royals's success shows that when you draft and develop talent, you can win in MLB. It's not the payroll.

What's with all the Mets hate?

What's the problem with the Mets?

My vote for Hillary in the GE is NOT a vote for the "lesser of two evils"

I will vote for whatever Democrat gets the nomination. And, no, I mean HELL NO, is my vote a vote for the lesser of two evils. My vote will be for continuing and improving on the recovery that we're going through from 8 years of GWB. I clearly remember 2000. Yes, I do. I clearly remember getting into heated arguments here and elsewhere with Liberals about how W was not that much different from Gore.

Then 9/11 happened. The Afghanistan war. The Iraq war. Torture. Katrina. The financial meltdown. We lurched from one major fucking crisis to another. John Kerry's wife, Theresa, was dead right when she said in 2004: "they want 4 more years of hell", and that's what we got in bundles. We got damn lucky in 2008 to get Obama, and things have improved tremendously. Not to the level that we all want, but they have improved and we're not lurching from one shit storm to the next.

If any one of those Republican ass clowns in office, and the damage to your fellow Americans, in particular those most at-risk, will be enormous. Given the 8 years of Bush, given that the current Republican field is a 1000 times worse than Bush, and given the hard work of recovery that Obama has had to go through to pull us back from the brink, it's fucking selfish of anyone to say, "I won't vote for the lesser of two evils" because that's a grotesque mis-characterization of this election. We're voting to maintain the pace of our recovery and to improve it.

If it's Hillary, then I'm voting for a continuation of the path that we're on. I don't want to go back to the fucked up days of Bush.

If you are still somehow confused about White Privilege in America, watch HBO's Project Greenlight

Even though HBO is supposedly a Liberal bastion and even though the show is produced by Liberal stalwarts, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, watch how White privilege works in Hollywood which is a decent representation of how it works in America as a whole. Yes, they're making a movie, but this can ANY number of work/school projects that I've been on.

Are there any Rick and Morty fans here?

If you aren't a fan, shame on you. It's one of the funniest shows on TV, and it just concluded its second season with a doozy of a cliffhanger. The problem is that the show isn't coming back for another 18 months, probably more, and that will be its final season.
