  1. Thanks! (and thanks for sharing that episode) I think I need to update my avatar and signature with something more recent...I do wonder how that Paul/Tracy/Laura triangle would have worked out if Maura hadn't wanted to be paired with Burgi - or so the story goes. As for the last couple months, I gotta check episode counts to see how she made out for 2016...
  2. Thank you!!! Thank you!!!
  3. That's a good point. A colleague of mine who supported Bernie, voted Stein, saying Trump and Clinton were both terrible candidates. Another, who also supported Bernie, told me over the summer she may have to vote for Trump because she just doesn't like Hillary. I encouraged her to research and look at the issues. These colleagues are both in their younger 20s for what it's worth. The second one would later say she didn't like Trump, but she and I never discussed who she voted for. Back to third party candidates... If people truly believed in what Stein or Johnson stood for, then, sure, vote for them. I don't agree with voting for 3rd party candidates because they are not going to win, and to me, it's throwing your vote away. But at the same time, it's hard for me to tell someone to not vote their conscience. But to just vote for them because they're not Clinton or Trump or to vote for them because your guy, Bernie, lost? That's throwing your vote away in protest. Like voting for Harambe. I know Bernie Bros weren't the only ones who voted third party, but I just don't know how you vote for someone that guarantees everything you supposedly care about won't get implemented.
  4. I think Stein's voters were more likely to go to Clinton than Trump because of the climate change issue. But if Stein had dropped out, I wonder how many of her supporters would have turned to the other third party candidate. I don't know how her and Johnson's beliefs align tbh.
  5. And second person in this instance below (without actually saying "you")... From a Florida speech, less than a week before the election: "We’ve got to be nice and cool, nice and calm. All right, stay on point, Donald, stay on point. No sidetracks, Donald. Nice and easy."
  6. Edited to add: Why are Democrats the ones to win popular vote and lose the election?! Luck of the draw, I guess. I looked it up and the 5 times it's happened, it's been the Dems... except for one candidate that was listed as Democrat-Republican, but back then, everyone was Democrat-Republican (or Whig or Federalist, I guess). It was 1824 and after the loss, they were inspired to create the Democratic party.
  7. She actually lost Arizona and Georgia by a smaller margin than Ohio! I thought she was making a go at Arizona. I would have stayed out of the recount. Trump is so unpredictable and petty... He'd hire someone to go after her in a heartbeat. He'd probably change his mind 2 minutes later, but I wouldn't risk it. Republicans may have said a ton of nice things about her throughout the years, but their actions speak louder. Most of them dislike her and have forever... I recently read this: As Time magazine noted as far back as 1993, cranking out spurious stories that discredited Hillary Clinton and were attributed to anonymous Secret Service agents was a known political trick: A Republican consultant told a network newscaster that his job was to make sure Hillary Clinton is discredited before the 1996 campaign. Each day anti-Hillary talking points go out to talk-show hosts. Many of the stories are attributed to the Secret Service in an attempt to give the tales credibility. The title of Trump's statement was so funny... "Ridiculous Recount Request" was in it. I think it should have just said "Recount Request." I actually don't think the recount itself is ridiculous (in Wisconsin and Michigan anyway), but those 2 states aren't enough, and I wish her campaign had stayed out of it.
  8. What I'm confused about is that the HRC campaign lawyer actually said they didn't see any evidence of tampering or else they, themselves, would have filed for the recount. So why even oversee it if you don't expect anything?
  9. This isn't for real, but it's a funny tweet. I know I didn't donate. Don't trust Jill Stein at all.
  10. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence? 3:23 AM - 4 Jun 2014
  11. Oh I know. Was just pointing out a couple of Trump supporters' horrifying behaviors. I actually just found out that Secretary of States, when working, get Diplomatic Security Service protection, not Secret Service protection. I don't know if DSS is for life though. But as a former First Lady, Hillary got Secret Service protection at home while serving as Secretary of State, and as you said, gets it for life. In other news, Jill Stein is fundraising for a recount in WI, MI, and PA. No way she hits her goal, but I thought it was interesting... The Stein/Baraka Green Party Campaign is launching an effort to ensure the integrity of our elections. With your help, are are raising money to demand recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania-- three states where the data suggests a significant need to verify machine-counted in vote totals. This effort to ensure election integrity is inyour hands! We need to raise over $2 million by this Friday, 4pm central. In true grassroots fashion, we’re turning to you, the people, and not big-money corporate donors to make this happen.
  12. One of them lynched a life sized Hillary doll during the general election... And another was selling posters with her face as a target for bullets.
  13. Interesting. My sister was a Bernie supporter before Hillary and her reasons that she took one of those political surveys and scored a slightly higher percentage for Bernie over Hillary. She also thought Hillary wasn't a good candidate in the sense that she had that never ending email saga. She ended up supporting Hillary... saying she also agreed with her views and that Bernie got annoying with his "everything must be FREE" stuff... and she also developed a ton of respect for her after watching her in the debates. And as someone whose seen sexism in the work place, my sister really wanted a woman president. She was talking about the double standard the other night, beginning with "What if Hillary came up on that convention stage with 5 children from 3 different husbands? She would have been called a slut." Anyway, I'm not really sure what the point of me sharing all of this is, but I guess it's about a Bernie fan turned Hillary supporter. She does think Bernie would have won though against Trump because he's a man and because the stuff against him wouldn't have been as bad in her opinion.
  14. I also think he's pushing for himself. And I thought Hillary had all of that in her platform... Wasn't it the most progressive Democratic platform in history? Did people not buy it coming from Hillary? I read she and Bernie voted 93% of the same in the Senate, so I think she's more progressive than people might think.
  15. I totally think he wants to run again and beat Trump. And I don't like the implication that Hillary's platform was "vote for me, I'm a woman." That was part of it for sure, and it makes sense after it gave her a boost in 2008 when she first tried to leave her gender out of it, but he is acting like that was all she did.
