I'm torn because according to a bunch of people who specialize in these things who say today was supposed to be the day the Anti-Christ revealed him/herself to the world.

BUT, according to other people who specialize in these things, the Anti-Christ can't reveal him/herself until AFTER the Rapture.

Also some people believe the Pope will announce the Anti-Christ, but others believe the Pope IS the Anti-Christ, so it's possible the Anti-Christ may be Schrodinger's cat.

My conclusion is that there were so few people who got Raptured that no one noticed, which leads to the possibility that maybe the only people who got Raptured were the people the Clintons have had assassinated.

Also there are those who believe that Anthony Weiner was supposed to be the Anti-Christ, but now that he's deleted his Twitter account he can't announce himself, so the whole of Armageddon was prevented by an ill-considered dick pic.

There are also those who believe that your interpretation of the Bible is really just a Rorschach test that reflects the pre-existing beliefs and morality you already bring to the reading, and only serve to confirm what you already think, but most of those people were unavailable for comment because they were off writing snarky posts on Facebook.

Nothing starts a morning off better than waking up for a 5am quick run, enjoying the crisp cold morning air, then waking up at 7am and realizing it was just a dream and having donuts for breakfast.

It's so sad what this electoral process has done to my friends and family here on social media. The constant bickering and animosity is driving people apart.

On one side, I have a bunch of friends and family who say that Trump is an bullying, racist fuckhead. On the other side, a group that says that Trump is a bigoted, xenophobic, narcissistic troll.

It goes back and forth all day, and there is no resolution, just escalating tension. Would it be so hard for us to truly LISTEN to each other and come to a compromise? Why can't we all just get together and agree that, for once in my lifetime of electoral observation, it's possible that we have a candidate who is both an bullying, racist fuckhead AND a bigoted, xenophobic, narcissistic troll? Maybe we are ALL right, in our own way?

We are stronger than our disagreements, friends. I beg of you: don't let the candidate divide us. Practice empathy, listen with an open heart, and call the sad little douchenozzle out.

Namaste.

It's definitely a conflict of interest for the President to want to continue to fight against AIDS worldwide and improve the lives of children while in office. Unacceptable and disgraceful. She should shut the foundation down, because that will definitely appease the people who are complaining and make them vote for her.

By all means, shut down a foundation that helps provide AIDS medication to hundreds of thousands of CHILDREN worldwide, simply to stop the squawking from right-wing conspiracy theorists because 3 donors to the Foundation requested favors from Clinton while she was Secretary of State, 2 were rejected, the 3rd got nothing more than a meeting, with Huma Abedin doing what appears to have been a fantastic job of running interference against Foundation donors asking for favors. In other words, exactly the behavior we should expect from our elected leaders.

If I were the Clintons, I would encourage the GOP conspiracy theorists to look even deeper. Look for more scandal! Investigate what the Foundation is doing! Those Clinton monsters are funnelling money towards GIVING WOMEN CIVIL RIGHTS! And EDUCATION! It's an A-RATED CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION!

Of COURSE we should tear it down. But don't worry about Trump's taxes, or where he got his money, or who he still owes money to, or his many, MANY lawsuits, his abuse of the legal process, his role in scams like "Trump University" or how any of that might influence a Trump administration. Let's shut down the organization that actually does some GOOD.

We have two candidates for President: one who is criticized because she runs a charitable foundation that provides AIDS medicine to children, the other because he runs a fake "university" that scams people out of tens of thousands of dollars for worthless degrees.

AND SOMEHOW THIS IS STILL A FUCKING RACE.

A good rule of thumb is that if your news source regularly has headlines like "Elizabeth Warren DESTROYS Trump in 30-second speech" or "Ex-FBI Director makes statement on Benghazi, Clinton is FURIOUS" or "Trump campaign in SHAMBLES after this video goes viral!", the reality is that (a) no, she didn't, he's still there, (b) no, she's not, the author just imagines she should be and (c) no, it's not, this video is just rehashed highly-edited garbage and out-of-context quotes.

If that describes your favorite news source (I'm looking at you "bipartisanreport" and "bluedot"), then another good thing to consider is that they are so far inside their own bubble they're actually making it harder for you to have a conversation with someone whose opinions might differ from your own. None of the arguments presented in those articles are the devastating body blows they purport to be, and in most cases are presenting quotes and actions completely out of context, that are usually innocuous and non-controversial when considered in the whole.

Be wary of anyone who claims to be able to dismantle an argument for or against any complex and nuanced issue with a 30-second, highly edited video. If those constitute your entire argument against or for a position, prepare to be taken apart by people who have actually seen or read the whole speech. It's wishful thinking that only really works if you are right beside them in that bubble.

+Dean Reimer Maybe more like 10% fact, but the 10% is cherrypicked from the 100% available.

I have, on multiple occasions in my life, asked myself whether I should finish the last 3-4 bites of what I'm eating, and then immediately stuffed the rest of it in my mouth so that the question doesn't come up any more.

Emmett Till was murdered only 61 years ago, well within the lifetime of a lot of people alive today, and WELL within the lifetime of even more people who learned their attitudes on race at their parents' and grandparents' feet.

They will be voting in November.

For those of you who are being hurt by the high price of Epipens: I still have a few left over from the home brew batch I put together in May. First come, first serve. I have mint, raspberry and some lingonberry, but not many. I have a TON of the peanut butter flavor ones left for some reason.

Mostly there is NO THIMERASOL in these.

$20 OBO.

It's not obvious because of the size distortions inherent to projection maps, but if you took the state of Alaska and placed it over Minnesota, you'd probably kill millions of people.

More than half the people being treated for AIDS around the world receive medication from the Clinton Foundation. "In more than 70 countries, according to the foundation, it helps 11.5 million people, including 800,000 children, with HIV/AIDS get their medication at 90% lower cost -- more than half the adults and three-quarters of the children getting treatment in the world today." (CNN)

So by all means, it's a GREAT idea to just shut it down so that right-wing conspiracy theorists who would never vote for Clinton in the first place feel more comfortable about any "appearance" of impropriety, in the absence of any actual proof of such a thing.

There are much easier ways to scam people out of their money than by creating a philanthropic organization (with top ratings from organizations that review that kind of activity), and using the org to support healthcare, education, women’s rights, climate change work, and improving opportunities for girls and women worldwide.

MUCH easier ways. Real estate scams, for example. Or fake universities.
You see, that's the difference. The Clintons put their name all over a global initiative that helps direct millions of dollars in aid to people who need it, and have provided direct assistance to support the issues above in multiple countries. That's what they want their name to be associated with. The accusation is that they are somehow secretly economically benefiting from this organization.

Trump puts his name all over scammy universities, failed steaks, bankrupt casinos and hotels and various other swindles where he gladly and proudly TELLS you that his only real goal is to benefit himself economically, EVEN IF everyone else involved gets pennies on the dollar as a return for their investment. He touts the shafting and bankrupting of small businesses that have provided services to his investments as proof of his being such a great businessman, and a reason to vote for him. That's what he wants his name to be associated with.

I know which candidate I want MY name to be associated with.

It's not a coincidence that the manufacturer of the Epipen has jacked up the price 600% JUST AS THE PRICE OF PEANUTS IS FALLING TO A 10-YEAR LOW

Don't trust Big Legume, man.
