I'm not sure he's got t he correct source of the problem, but I think like ideas on how to fix it at the end.
 
Pls read LoL
Intellectuals have always been persecuted and shoved in lockers, but something in my gut tells me we’re at a low point, all because of one TV show.

First polls close in 6 minutes. Remember, if you are in line when the polls close, they have to let you vote!

This is why I always use ECC RAM in my desktops and servers:

Today, in the wonderful world of Chromium on Debian, I get to chose between not being able to access most https sites (v53: NET::ERR_CERTIFICATE_TRANSPARENCY_REQUIRED) or not having audio on any site (v55 broke PA support.)

When resistance is illegal, being arrested can be resistance.

Resist. Peace.

Yes, we need to change the way we vote. FPtP is simple, but quite flawed. IRV is worse -- guess what Maine switched to?

First we need to implement verifiable democracy, then a Condorcet method or possibly range voting.
 
Unhappy with the results of their past elections, Mainers have opted for ranked-choice voting. It could lead to more civilized politics but lower voter turnout.

+Jim Benson Sure, but I'm pretty sure there's a 3-candidate, 4-voting bloc counter example that shows IRV does not satisfy the Condorcet Loser criterion.

Please vote. Many states continue early voting today. Swing by during lunch or right after work. The last day to vote is tomorrow (2016-11-08), so make time tomorrow if you can't get away today.

The video endorses a specific candidate. I want you vote, no matter who you vote for. LWV and local organizations produce simple voting guides, if you feel uninformed. In any case, please vote.

Fried okra and mac and cheese were excellent, as good or better that your grandmother's. Atmosphere meets expectations. Meat is a little lacking. Sauce is good if you want NC vinegar-based.

Like all WH locations, the food is all too greasy. Everything else is at or above standards.
