  1. Although a lot of good things happened to me in my personal life this year, I have to say watching John Oliver explode a giant lit up 2016 and seeing so many people say fuck 2016 on his show last night gave me an immense sense of pleasure. I also like the idea of writing a note saying "this is not normal". The people saying give him a chance are pissing me off, so I enjoyed John's attitude about all of this.
  2. Yup, very far. I have heard so many women defend this using those exact phrases. They even applauded it because they are tired of "pc" culture.
  3. I don't have a car to get to protests, so I am donating to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and Sierra Club. It may not be much, but it feels like it is something positive.
  4. It made me feel worse. Particularly #2. And #3. It is just rationalizing this. god, particularly the part about trump states legalizing marijuana. Hey, the KKK endorsed candidate won, but maybe at least those racists are ok with me getting high!
  5. You know, part of me is like fuck it. You guys can have your four years of the Donald, we can have our four years of Yeezy. Let's just give in to the shit show. Then maybe we'll have to compromise on a sane rational candidate in 2024.

  6. Yes. http://www.highsnobiety.com/2016/10/17/kanye-west-president-2020/
  7. A reality show star won. Kanye's 2020 bid does not seem so farfetched anymore.
  8. I am clinging on to the fact that my state legalized marijuana. But if the SC leans right, could this be something that is potentially overruled?
  9. I'm sorry, but I can't agree. This campaign was very positive in the end. They want change in the sense that they are afraid of positive change. They want the good ole days back. I like Warren and Sanders more than HRC, but this would have happened with them too at this point of time. This is a backlash to change.
  10. Fuck, I feel awful about saying before that Gary Johnson would take Trump voters, not Hillary. I do wonder how many bitter Bernie bros sat out. As a vehemently pro choice woman, I am now terrified of the idea of back alley abortions becoming a huge thing. I am terrified for immigrants and minorities in this country being victims of hate and violence since fear against them has been validated by this election. I am terrified of LGBT friends losing their rights. I am terrified for my near retirement parents. I am terrified for my husband in the military now that this ass clown will our commander in chief. fuck.
  11. I knew this would happen. I don't know what to say. Take care of yourselves, everyone. I won't be able to watch HRC's speech. Of all people to have to concede to.
  12. Once Florida (hopefully) gets called for Clinton, I will be good. I will get on Facebook and drink some Trumpster tears.
  13. I love Mumm! Hoping to visit the winery this weekend. For reasons too complicated to get into, I will be with my husband's Repub friends tomorrow night. My original plan of drinking and watching the results will not happening since I have less of a chance of holding my tongue. So I am trying to plan a game night to pass time in the evening or go see a movie or something. I am kind of bummed, I was looking forward to the live chat.
  14. I think Patrick is an ASS for questioning Alla, but I get why he is so invested. He has seen his best friend go through three divorces, and has presumably had to be his rock during those times. I would be questioning and side eyeing my best friend in the same situation, and they would do the same for me. Like it or not, but Matt clearly wants love. I doubt someone would get married three times and engaged a fourth without being a romantic. He strikes me as a love addict. Issues of worries for Alla and her son aside, this will not end well most likely, beause of Matt, not Alla, and I can't blame a best friend for being upset. He is going about it the wrong way but I get his frustration.
  15. Oh, man, thanks for the laugh, Melania. Going on about bullying and social media roughness. There is just zero self awareness from this campaign and its supporters.
  16. Word to everything that sleakandchic said. And the scary part to me is that despite the lying and him being dangerous seeming so obvious to so many, if he wins, it means that there is a substantial part of the country that doesn't see this or is not willing to see this. It scares me enough that he was able to win the primary. But the election? The fact that it is this close and so many are throwing their support behind him makes me question people who I used to think wanted the best for this country just like I do, in my mind they just had a different path of how to get the country in a better place. If he wins, the political climate really about feelings and fear, not hope and facts.
  17. This is me. Call me a coward, but I also keep quiet with a lot of people to keep the peace. I am not going to change their minds, they won't change mine.
  18. I have seen an ad that implies that a man is voting as a father. Granted, it is because he is a father of three girls.
  19. What scares me in addition to the above? Terrified of Trump managing foreign relations and being overly sensitive and getting us into a worse situation than Bush 2 did.
  20. Plus, Alla deserves to have an outlet/friend that isn't Matt's smothering mother.
  21. Weirdly, I am not concerned about the Nader effect. I do see a lot of Johnson support, but it is from people who would be voting republican to begin with. I was for Bernie originally, as were a lot of my left leaning friends, and we all understand that Johnson runs on a campaign that is pretty much the opposite of what we believe in. I can respect Libertarians as individuals far more than Trump republicans, but there is nothing in that campaign that speaks to me. Johnson will be taking away mostly Trump votes.
