Unwashed Village / Re: The Presidential Debatabacle

Meh.

Really, I blame the whole thing on the third parties. This was arguably the first election where they could have actually won, thus establishing themselves as relevant. But the Greens and the Libertarians put up horrible candidates. Seriously. If I were the head of the Green party I would have have begged Ralph Nader (who isn't actually a Green, but ran for them previously) to run again. He certainly would have been better than any of the other choices. And the Libertarians should have had their Veep be running as for Pres, and gotten someone with a clue to run as Veep.

The two major parties put up very unlikable candidates. It was a golden chance for the other parties. But they shat the bed.

Do I think Hillary would have been better than Trump. Yep! Do I think she was a particularly good candidate? Nope! But I sure as Hell wasn't voting for anyone else. And that's really a sad statement for someone who prides himself on usually voting for third parties. I just couldn't do it this time, even though the major party candidate I voted for was probably worse than any of the other major party candidates I could have voted for in other elections/positions.

I mean, you know that's up to you, right?

I got a lady I've been with for around five years.  People keep yelling at me to propose; I keep trying to explaint that I am down but that lady is less down.  Then I think, maybe  I should pop the question and she'll go for it even though she's less down; but maybeshe won't; but ahahhaghahhhhhhh FREAK OUT

but the nice thing is that I continue to have total control over my life and problems.  I mean, I love the lady, she has input, but, uhm

basically what I am trying to say is that whole "OH GOD IF YOU GET MARRIED YOU LOSE YOUR INDEPENDENCE" thing

seems pretty stupid to me.  I'm gonna keep chasing this woman to the end of the world, and if at the end of the world it turns out she's irritating me, then I'm gonna bitch at her
hopefully she'll think maybe I ahve a point
but if she don't think that, I'll think, god damn, life is hard.


Grow the fuck up.

I've been with my partner for about 10.5 years now. Main reason we aren't married is her massive amount of debt. We'd be common law if we lived in a state that recognized it. She's my domestic partner on my company benefits. At the end of the day, marriage is simply a contract that lacks legal consideration (and the only binding contract that doesn't require consideration). It's a piece of paper that carries some nice legal benefits, but at the end of the day, your either committed to your relationship or you aren't. Having official legal standing can make that relationship harder to break off, but that's about it. Marriage is overrated.


I've been married for almost 5 years and my husband has just as much gaming/computer time as before we moved in together. Hell, he even masterbates more than he did before we were married (while still keeping up the interest in me that I expect/hope for).

It's "masturbate". Masterbate makes me think of someone who's really skilled at holding their breath.

We don't have a facebook group, but a lot of us are connected through it (I'm friends with probably 15 or so UV'ers through facebook, even those that no longer hang out here). I'm Grant Anderson and am the only one in Chicago, so I'm easy enough to find. We probably could set one up if enough people think it's worth it.

Boy, life is really going to suck when I get married and have kids and a career.

Your priorities will change on their own. Unless you seriously fuck up somewhere, it won't be like someone flipped a light switch. Life will be as it is now, exactly what you make of it.

Binding of Issac: Rebirth. I've always liked roguelikes, they're like if you combined a D&D dungeon and let a computer AI go LARPING. Its not really a roguelike, but about the closest that most people can enjoy.

Finished Dark Souls 3. I basically hate the game, and never want to play the series again. Not because its hard, but because its frustrating for bad reasons. Sad to say that, because some parts were actually fun.

Theres a few games I feel I need to play soon too. Deus EX: Mankind Divided, Zelda: Breath of Wild, DOOM.

Boy, life is really going to suck when I get married and have kids and a career.

Later on, she would accept full responsibility for her loss, and then in the same breath, blame Comey.
I fucking saw that too! And I about lost my shit when she said "If the election had been held on October 27, I'd be your president" The arrogance of that fucking woman! Even if Comey had influenced enough people past the tipping point to cost her the election, theres no way to fucking prove things would be different. She's not some inter-dimensional time traveler. Its just a rather pathetic coping mechanism to justify what she was overly confident would happen, but didn't.

 My dad always used to say "don't use shoulda/coulda/woulda and just accept the results of your actions". Instead of admitting "Our message wasn't very good, and my campaign focused too narrowly on population centers. Trump obviously had more support across broader areas." its blaming Russia, Comey, and now even the DNC. Its pretty scary, and i'm thankful things happened the way they did. I earnestly think the election results may have been influenced by God, and what was meant to happen did.

Why don't we overthrow every world's government and replace it with soviet llamas, that would be better than any candidate of any nation to date.

I'd say plenty of reasons to not like Hillary, but then I'd have to get into specifics about which Hillary
the one that's always been a moderate,
or
 the one that's always been a progressive

the one that gives s speech to Verizon execs
or
the one that goes down to the street with Verizon workers on strike for a photo op

When her stance depends on audience, it's hard to figure out what she actually supports. But when the DNC lifted Obama's ban on contributions from lobbyists, the DNC used state and local Democratic parties to launder money for her campaign, it proved just how strong her Wall Street ties are; well that and the board meeting she had with her "investors"/donors to explain why she lost. Later on, she would accept full responsibility for her loss, and then in the same breath, blame Comey. Despite all of her flaws, despite the obvious electioneering and the obvious collusion, the only reason she lost is because she alienated voters. She alienated them with things she said. She alienated them with her million dollar troll brigade. She alienated them with her fake news stories being pushed by David Brock and Blue Nation Review. And then her loyal followers followed her example attacking anyone that was not on board with her 100%.

The DNC has not denied collusion with the Clinton campaign in the current lawsuit against them, instead they insisted there was no reason for impartiality because they are a private organization, and even that they can pick their own candidate regardless of tax payer funded primaries. Of course it helped to have people from her earlier campaign now in key positions within the DNC for this campaign.

Now as far as any criminal negligence on her part regarding her server and the emails, I think you're aware that in fact during the Congressional hearing with Comey (available on C-Span's website) he did admit there was criminal negligence on her part. In fact, whether you hate her or are a diehard fan, you really should actually watch the video. Yes, it's long and boring, and Democrats try to build up Comey like they're trying to score a date with him. But just listen to his answers when they actually ask him questions.

And keep in mind Hillary was not just some janitor at a school, she was the Secretary of State, a position that required handling classified information on a daily basis. Her server was without a valid security certificate for 3 months. And we all know about Paul Combetta asking about how to edit the email database during the FBI's investigation, a move that would be considered tampering with evidence/ destruction of evidence. He also posted some details about the server that should never have been posted, and then went back and started deleting these posts during the congressional hearing.

The legality of the server itself hasn't come up as much as the question behind the reasoning for it. It's been shown that Sate Department and the Clinton foundation had enough overlap in business to raise several red flags. In fact, even the Washington Post, where Podesta is now a columnist, wrote a piece on it. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/emails-reveal-how-foundation-donors-got-access-to-clinton-and-her-close-aides-at-state-dept/2016/08/22/345b5200-6882-11e6-8225-fbb8a6fc65bc_story.html?utm_term=.47d76e1128ab

Thank god she wants to lead the #McResistance now. Not sure what she's resisting, except responsibility for her own actions. But at least she gets to handle someone else's money again.
