Great.

So, for those who continue to argue with me and others, just relax then. Everything is fine.

ISIS will fall and Democrats can celebrate their superior intellect, knowing everything will work out. I even feel better typing this.

Thank you to whomever mentioned (in this thread, I think?) the RES extension that lets you filter out subreddits from /r/all. It's made going there much better.
RES is a fucking life saver. Everything is becoming a "You're in the tank for [any candidate]" by every candidates followers. If we still had enough post activity to keep me busy, I wouldn't bother with reddit. But we're a dying breed that uses forums.

I don't even know how to search for how many posts people have in a thread.

It's exceedingly difficult. Go to the forum page (ie, the page that has all the threads in this sub forum). Look for the column on the right labeled "replies". This thread should have a number over 16,000. Click on the number. Voila!

No, it's not (not that there's anything wrong with that).

But that highlights a problem the movie had. They had no idea how to market it.

Thanks. Most people aren't interested in every factoid about the emails and the investigation. I think you're missing the forest for the trees. Maybe Clinton will be indicted, but I haven't seen anyone here make a good case for indictment based on the law, sound reasoning, and legal precedent.

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread: come for the anger, stay for the Hüsker Dü

Holy shit, this is depressing.
A Trump Rally in Greensboro "Anger in here is palpable"

Just a few of the 75 updates:
Trump event like a security state. Just watched a girl get denied for being "too alternative."
Crowd chanting BUILD THAT WALL BUILD THAT WALL over operatic music.
Crowd member just shouted "gays had it coming"
Bragging that he took credentials from WA Post. Crowd yells Kill them all.
I feel so terrible for the children here.
Recites poem about snake, emphasizes line "Silly Woman," crowd goes nuts
Calls Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas, says he was asked to apologized, will only apologize to Pocahontas. Guy next to me does a war dance
Rally ends. Crowd on way mumbling about immigrants. Vendors yelling HILLARY SUCKS BUT NOT LIKE MONICA. America. 2016.
Overheard: immigrants aren't people, honey
Father explaining Clinton let her husband have "all kinds of oral sex" to his ten year old

"Build that wall!"

ZOMG! The terrorits errr alzreddy herez!

Funny how comments were noted from Trimp events but comments from others...are not.

Maybe take Obama's advice. Ignore a problem...and it will go away.

So this guy has to go to a Clinton rally before he's allowed to tweet out what happened at a Trump rally?

So I haven't been following Trump too closely, but is there any consensus as to whether people are actually buying into this fear mongering idiocy or is this more like a deep south pep rally thing?

I mean, a few of his policy ideas are fairly decent, and he's not Clinton, but man do the other proposed policy ideas and his supporters make us look like a bunch of ignorant pussies. His Obama attacks are particularly cringe worthy, like he pulled them off some Facebook memes.

No different than others believing the fear-mongering of folks who predict the end of the world if Trump is in office.

It's Pick Your Apocalypse 2016.

I love that song!

But we need a second verse!

We don't need no...identification.

We don't need no...border patrol.

Hey! Liberals! Leave common sense alone.

All in all you're just another kick in America's balls.

Not really surprised. It's been my experience that his most ardent supporters are fundamentally broken people. I expect this behavior from people like that. Thankfully, they're in an ever dwindling minority. This Trump bullshit is just their last gasp for life and meaning.

Agreed, but it is still somewhat jarring to see a sizable portion of neo-fascists congregated at one event. At least here stateside, then again I guess I shouldn't really be surprised.

Also, Dan looks like he addressed this before I chimed in.

This was my favorite of his tweets:

Guy wearing Socialism Sucks shirt and lip syncing to Tiny Dancer. Nothing makes sense anymore.

"Thinking About Hillary"
by Michael Arnovitz


I thought this was a pretty interesting piece. Part forensic journalism, part history lesson, for most of us Hillary "dislikers". Though I doubt it will move most of the most the ardent Hillary "haters" - why allow facts to intrude upon your world view? But for us Sanders' supporters or the lukewarm but Trump intolerant, this may help the Clinton-medicine go down a little easier.

TL;DR Judge Sullivan read the secret details of the Pagliano immunity agreement. He can't speak about those details, but he did confirm that the immunity was given in the FBI's "criminal investigation." The deposition can be videotaped, but it cannot be released for now. So we'll all have to wait for that riveting footage of, "I take the 5th" for hours on end.

Honest question, should I just make a one and only thread Hillary's emails? If that would please the majority, I can certainly do it and people can ignore it.
Why? Do we then make a Trump Scandals thread too?

Why, if the investigation continues long enough, they're certain to find a serious violation of the law.
I wonder if they'll find secret recordings of Hillary fucking an intern on a State Dept mission?

Unless someone wants to start a new Trump thread every day, there probably needs to be a new subforum for that.
