I'm bored.

Can anyone tell me if LynneSin learned anything interesting in her thread?

Please take your jury duty seriously

There's a sicko who lurks, and posts here.

His most common handle is "name removed"

It might be some ass named Dwayne, or in my opinion, it's a jerkass named Gary.

He likes to use dark email accounts to attempt to harass people. I'm assuming he has tiny hands like rump.

Anyway, this sicko thinks it's funny to be a misogynistic, racist pig.

Cut the shit, Gary.

Hillary Clinton just slammed the stigma surrounding sexually transmitted infections

Ella Dawson expected to find a Netflix bill in her Brooklyn mailbox. She discovered instead a letter from Hillary Clinton. The 24-year-old blogger, who writes often about living with genital herpes, figured it was a standard campaign mailer. She once donated $50 to Clinton.

She tore open the envelope. She froze. Did the Democratic presidential candidate, one of the most famous figures on the planet, just thank her for talking about sexually transmitted infections on the Internet?

“I am so grateful to you for not only speaking out against the stigma,” Clinton wrote, “but for also taking a courageous stand against the ridiculous, but very real, barrage of hate you received online.”


That's the Hillary I know.

Is It Time For The Press To STFU About Hillary Clinton’s Press Conferences?

There is a very stupid controversy happening right now, about whether Hillary gave a press conference on her aero-plane, or whether it was a press gaggle, and did Asshole Hillary even give the traveling press the correct flavor of ice cream sandwiches afterward? She did not. Has it been 275 days since Hillary gave a press conference, or has it just been a day and a half? This is an IMPORTANT QUESTION.


must read.

Stevie Nicks Wants to Play ‘Landslide’ if Hillary Clinton Wins Election


“When she wins by a landslide, I could gather together the Dixie Chicks, Billy Corgan and everybody who’s ever sung a version of ‘Landslide,'” she said. “It’s not uptempo, but it certainly would get the message across.”

The rocker has expressed her support for Clinton’s candidacy in the past. “She’s so damn smart,” Nicks told MacLean’s last year. “As far as the Republicans go — and my parents were both Republicans — there is no rising star. If you think of the great Republican presidents, there is no that guy. There is no John Kennedy rising in the Republican world. There is no Ronald Reagan. In the Democratic world, there is no that guy either. There is Hillary. Period.”


One of my favorites, although I like to change the lyrics a bit...

"time makes you older, children get bolder and I'm getting bolder too.."

I decided to do another poll, this time at the mall

and I was especially interested in collecting enthusiasm data.

Here's what I found.

80% of the people I asked were voting for Hillary.

20% either ignored me, or said "Lady, I'm just trying to shop here."

As far as enthusiasm with the Hillary voters,

10 people were willing to give me a high five.

5 people smiled.

2 people asked me if I was a real pollster.

1 asked me for directions to a store.

Nobody was willing to do jumping jacks on camera, except a four year old who also did summersaults and sang me a song as well.

The Sexist Press

A lot of the media coverage of Hillary Clinton reeks of sexism.

Journalists, like everyone, assume certain things are true. One of those things is that journalists serve democracy by questioning presidential candidates and holding them to account. This is a good assumption in theory.

In practice, not so much.

Prior to Labor Day, Hillary Clinton had not held a press conference in months. Withholding access was no doubt a source of great annoyance among reporters. That gets you little sympathy, though. On Twitter, reporters sought sympathy by appealing to a higher principle. We do it for you, dear voter, said NBC's Katy Tur.

If that were true, reporting on Clinton's first press conference in 275 days should have revealed things that voters care about, such as her thoughts on the Syrian civil war, collective bargaining rights, the Trans-Pacific Partnership and a host of other important issues.

Instead, we got reporting about what journalists thought was news: that Clinton held a press conference. To be sure, as NPR's Tamara Keith noted, Donald Trump has counted the days since her last press conference. But that's a convenient rationale for weeks of bellyaching by the press.


It's nice to see more people catching on.

Do you believe sexism plays a part in Hillary's polling numbers

regarding trust and honesty?
