Sorry, but I hate what the producers have done to Game of Thrones

The show is quickly becoming like all other fictional narratives. This is the good person. This is the bad person, and the good person triumphs over the bad one. And everything works out in the end. The entire reason why the series resonated so strongly with the culture is that the bad guys often won which reflects well in our personal lives. Just because you were good and has truth on your side, that alone does not mean that you win. Given this dynamic, the reader was in a constant state of tension whenever you turned the page. You never felt safe. Why do you think that reactions to the Red Wedding was so fierce and shook the culture.

The show is abandoning this narrative. It's reaching for quick resolutions instead of developing an intricate story line. It's given into the audience instead of challenging us. I can get hero stories every where I turn. I want a story that reflects my life experience of seeing bad people win and bad things happen.

At this point, shouldn't BS and his supporters be more focused on getting Dems elected to congress

Now that his run for the nomination is all but over, wouldn't a better use of his time and resources be deployed to see that other like-minded Dems get elected to federal and state offices?

Just a thought.

This outsourcing crap is getting out of control!

Not only did I have to train my replacement, I had to clean out her litter box as well!!!

Name one blue state that will vote for Trump.

I just don't see it.

Did you hear Rachel?

She just said that there's no way that Bernie can win the nomination. Methinks her inbox will be full.

It's Time to focus on Trump. Donate now!

I'm done with Bernie. He lost but won't get off the field. It's time to focus 100% on Trump. Time to donate. Time to get to work. Let's not take ANYTHING for granted.

The entitlement mentality of BS supporters proves why his "revolution" is a farce --HRC Group

"Southern red states don't matter". "Blacks are too ignorant to know what's good for them". "We lost because of voter fraud." "The media is against us." "NY's registration laws are voter suppression". And the new one, "Hillary supporters trolled our Facebook page."

In sum, their entire philosophy can be summed as we should win because we are right, and anyone who disagrees with us is either corrupt and/or stupid. It's not our job to do the work to get our message out. It's not our job to understand voting laws. It's not our job to build alliances within the party.

At times their campaign has been sexist, racially insensitive, bullying, and show utter contempt to anyone who disagrees or challenges their position in any way. Yet, somehow they think that the rest of America will rally to support his agenda once he is president?!?!

We're Democrats and they get on our nerves. Imagine how the rest of America is going to feel about them.

Stage 3 - Bargaining

Bargaining The third stage involves the hope that the individual can avoid a cause of grief. Usually, the negotiation for an extended [campaign] is made in exchange for a reformed lifestyle. People facing less serious trauma can bargain or seek compromise.

BS supporters are in this stage.

This is the worst year for music that I can remember

Maybe during the late 60s it was worse, but damn, damn, and damn.

If you and your co-workers did the hard work to form a union on your job...

Would you allow non-union people on your job to vote for your union representatives or whether or not you go out on strike?
