If I had known anyone relatively trustworthy promoted or organized this, Bannon included, I would have criticized it less. That's not to say that grassroots things can't exist, but this one smelled bad, and Trump called it also. Jan 6 was partly a mess because Alex Jones got out in charge of something he wasn't fully prepared for. If Bannon is involved and hasat least laid some groundwork, then I can be wrong about it. I wasn't aware of that.

I need an explanation and video or something. This is insane. Is the ballot inside the mail envelope and the privacy envelope? What's used here? Blacklight? Something else?

This is something everyone needs to understand. Inequity is greater than any other possible sin. The left will justify anything - from small simple violations of individual rights up to and including mass murder - as long as it's racially equitable, because in their eyes, inequity is always worse than any other sin.

Fyi, If you live in a state with open primaries, there's no reason to register with as party. Get that shit off if there is it has no beating on the voting process

Oddly enough I feel the same way about the HHS secretary. And the transportation secretary while we're at it. Most of the cabinet, really.

It's legitimately a sad mental condition. Kudos to those who acknowledge it and try to do something about it. I have enough trouble with dieting - I can't imagine how hard it is to deal with it at that level. It's something easy to be compassionate about.

But the people who have no shame at all? Think they're doing nothing wrong, think it's beautiful, and blame everyone else? Fuck those people.

All she has to do is win the primary. No way in hell a dem wins. Can't see her losing the primary.

A single party state, no matter the party, is totalitarianism and that is un-American.

We need democrats, real democrats

This is the sentiment I saw on r/republican after the win in 2016. They were so upset about winning that they were afraid that we'd be lost with the Democrats losing so much.

Fuck that. We don't need Democrats at all. The whole party can go up in smoke. If the Republicans take total control one day, the first thing to happen on day 2 is that there will be a split between the republicans, the conservatives, and the libertarians. We'll still have 2 or 3 parties.

I have no interest in the country being a monolithic democratic nation-state or reduced to a province of a globalist entity. We're either a union of republican (small r) states, or we're done.

If by "control the country" you mean finally take the reigns required to put governance back the way it was originally intended to be, lets states mostly do their own thing, and leave individuals mostly the fuck alone, then, sure, this.

Well they remade it with a black cast and cutting Nathan Lane's cross dressing joke

Yep!

Archie Bunker wasn't supposed to be the relatable one. He was funny, but the audience was supposed to identify with the enlightened meathead.

Southerners liked the Andy Griffith show but the whole show was mocking the south. The only married person in the whole town was Otis the drunk. Its purpose was to backdoor liberalism to a captive conservative audience.

The Waltons was quite liberal, too.

I've been working remote for 6 years, except for a year at a consulting firm in between. The consulting firm was basically working in the office for remote clients, but frowned on people working from home for more than one day a month. Of course they've changed their tune now - I stalk them on LinkedIn and they act like they've always been pros at remote work. I want to call them out so bad.

At the job I've had for 3 years, I've been flown out once, but the rest is 100% remote and I make nearly twice as much. We're constantly hiring. It's no wonder tech people are leaving bad jobs with the student increase in opportunity and coming from bad jobs that frown on remote work or don't know how to manage it properly.

I won't go back of I can help it. Chances are I'll be in this boat for a long time.
