If you think that respect is now universal,
if you think the fight for equality has been won,
if you think that your vote has no importance,
let me tell you, dear, our work is far from done.

According to the couple here, they have had to shoulder most or all of the legal costs. (There's a gofundme for that purpose.)

"I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president... For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that."

When even a SCOTUS Justice is saying that the Court is at severe long-term deleterious risk -- much more than four years of impact on the country -- if Trump is elected, you ideological purists who are avoiding Clinton [on basically meme principles and gut feel] should pay some serious fucking attention.

This year's election is no time to play moronic voting games. If you vote third party [for President specifically] or stay home and pout, it will be absolutely clear that you've allowed yourself to be hoodwinked about how Presidential elections work, and what real long-term impact that office holds.

(Apologies for the language. It needed the emphasis.)
Justice Ginsburg took stock of a tumultuous term for the Supreme Court after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and gave her thoughts about a Trump presidency.

If I was going to vote for Trump, I would have said so waaaaaaay back up at the top.

OMG HOW TO DEAL WHEN YOU JUST CAN'T EVEN... what a bizarre fluff piece for this morning.
Limiting your media exposure and sharing your emotions with family are ways to manage stress from the recent police-related shootings.

And now for something completely different...
Daniel Herndon of +Skydive Airtight had a tangled main chute, couldn't untwist the cables, and had to use the reserve, all caught on camera. Amazing footage!

Of course, most media zeroed in on the word "lost" -- no, this is not really "losing" a parachute (which most people would think as meaning a sudden, unexpected detachment). This is intentionally getting rid of the tangled one ("cut-away") so the reserve won't also get tangled. KOCO in Oklahoma City seemed to be one of the few media outlets to understand the difference. Good on them.

The farm remains unbought for another day! #NoBounce
A local professional skydiver is looking for his parachute after an issue mid-air during a jump led to him having to use his emergency back-up chute.

For those who like skydiving, there's training for that. The steel will and tempering of panic comes naturally to some, but others need to learn it. :)

Oh, yeah. Nate Silver's 2016 general election forecasts have launched. As of this writing, the top ten "battleground" states are: Arizona. Missouri. Georgia. North Carolina. South Carolina. Ohio. Colorado. Mississippi. Kansas. Nevada.
Mississippi!?

Maybe the Southern Strategy has finally collapsed. If so, The Donald gets one-half of a thumbs-up. (That's being generous.)

+Zachary Vogt​, I don't recall their projection ever going as low as 0% for Trump. Though they did typically have him in the single digits early on in the season, they adjusted upward as he started winning states.

James Dobson has dubbed Trump "born-again". If this isn't reason enough to vote against him, you aren't paying attention.

This year might see states like Georgia and North Carolina flip majorities. Your vote WILL count. Choose wisely, and choose primary party [for President specifically].

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has become a born-again Christian, according to one of the country's most prominent evangelical leaders.

This time, presented without further comment.
Donald Trump's choice of Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate has irked some Republican activists who see the Indiana governor's years of opposition to gay rights initiatives as a setback to efforts to broaden the party's appeal.

So, can we finally move on now and quit the stupid whinging about voting write-in or staying home and pouting?

(BTW, if you do stay home and pout instead of going to the polls in November, you don't get to complain about anything the government does for the next four years. Apathy is the worst plague of the electorate.)
Democrat Bernie Sanders endorsed former rival Hillary Clinton for president in a show of party unity on Tuesday, saying she was the best candidate to fix the country's problems and beat Republican Donald Trump in the Nov. 8 election.

+Kee Hinckley Same. I have the privilege to make it through a Trump administration -- and maybe the potential SCOTUS aftermath (everyone seems to be forgetting this; they're justices for life!) -- but I., for one, would rather not go through another four or eight years of someone in a similar mental vein to W.

So, Black Lives Matter Toronto, you owe Toronto and the world an apology. You are now the problem, not the solution. #PrideTO

So here's the poster child town, which illustrates the cognitive dissonance in the #Brexit vote most poignantly. I'd bet that Flint, Michigan (a town well-known for its devastation from the shuttering of industrial work) would join the EU if they were allowed.

In the meantime, the England team has done their own #Brexit  and left the Euro2016 - Boris Johnson however insists to take it slow and just keep playing for now...
