All together now, "VOTE HIM OUT!"

Listen, and understand. The election is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until the entire Fark main page is filled.

snocone: All together now, "VOTE HIM OUT!"


How many people do you think it would take to have a crowd of people surrounding the block around the White House (about three people deep, with masks, of course) chanting VOTE HIM OUT every day until the election?

Asking for a democratic republic.

Don't know. He is behind three fences now.
While not as good as seven(7) proxies, it does make it farking difficult.

I've barely worked since March.  I have to move at the end of the year.  And now I get to wonder if I'm going to have civil rights in a few months.

I will never know what it's like to be so racist to actually want to vote for Trump.

I think some people might just have realized that this year.

If I had that much money, I'd probably vote R.

My sister in law is voting in NC this election. She's 46. She's never registered to vote. Until now. She signed up unprompted.  We begged her to vote a few weeks ago thinking she was still on the fence, she said she was already registered.

Also asked my piano instructor, who is in her early 20s. She said no less than a dozen people asked her if she was voting.

I'm staying hopeful.

And yet, even in a well-run electoral system, we'd be lucky to get 65% turnout with more than 49% of the vote going to the Dem.

Let's face it, even this shiatty government is better than most voting-age Americans deserve.

for me it depends on the circumstances surrounding that money.

humble beginnings with wealth resulting from hard work and lucky breaks? nah dude, tax the sh*t out of me. pay for schools and college and healthcare. make society better through it because better societies buy more things. i fantasize about winning the lottery and dropping a $500 tip on some unsuspecting server because they kept my drink full.

the other kind, where you inherited a pile of money and opportunities and privilege from your wealthy parents? yeah, I'd vote the sh*t out of R. if poor people didn't want to be poor, they shouldn't have been born that way. i don't make the rules.

It really is.  Donald Trump's presidency has proven how much direct and indirect impact the president can have on the individual especially minorities and women.

You would think that Trump's volatility, poor decisions and the administration's foreign policy clusterfark would make it difficult for 1%ers and "Captains of Industry" (just threw up in my mouth typing that). But tax cuts...
 
2020-09-24 2:17:04 PM  
Whatever gets you to the polls.

But don't forget that you have to refocus a whole lot of that passion into forcing Dem leadership into sufficiently address accelerating anthropogenic global warming, or you're gonna have even worse shiat to deal with in the future, not to mention how much worse it's going to be for your progeny.

/do you want your progeny to despise you? because failing to sufficiently tackle AAGW is how they'll despise you.

Amazing how we actually start to look inwards at our problems when our benevolent corporate overlords don't have our nose to the grindstone.

Here's what grinds my gears, not only do the Democrats have to get more votes, they have to get millions upon millions more votes to make up for the reams of votes the Republicans are going to chisel away.   By a slightly different signature, a torn envelope, a little electronic glitchery with the paperless voting machines, closing down polling stations, crippling the postal system, intimidating voters at the polling stations, losing ballots, disqualifying ex-felons for unpaid fines, gerrymandering districts, ID requirements.  Before they even start to game the EC.
If I were them, god forbid, I would have a few questions about how and why my side was trying to control every aspect of government against the popular will.

Not all of it is privilege.  Some of it is straight-up despair and hopelessness.  If you live in a safe blue or red state, that only makes your vote feel like it matters even less.  You don't have to be privileged--you just have to feel like you don't matter.

I wonder how many racist conservatives sit around thinking there's no point in voting . . .

And remember, if Biden wins by a landslide, that will just make Trump cry "Fraud!" even louder and they'll still try and take the election out of the hands of voters.  The only acceptable outcome for Trump and the GOP is a Trump win.  They will make anything else into a total, possibly hopeless shiatshow.

By that category I mean well off enough to not be crushed by this shiat gibbon and also being a white mail (pasty white) helps. Still fark that noise.

It's sad that in these times of COVID-19, civil unrest, and the collapsing economy, that for some, abortion is still their main concern.

Ironic how "fill that seat" would as a way of copulating, take care of the need for (most*) abortions.

Only do that in a restaurant you aren't planning on going back to. The Mexican place my wife likes to go to on Sundays? Can't do that every time. I mean, you could, since that's only $26K/year and with a $100M lotto win, that's chump change, but they're gonna expect it and the first time you don't, someone's getting upset.

All the "good" ones are taken. Is Gaetz or Nunez really worth it just to have a politician?

Now, if you could buy McConnell...

Exactly. Why would I expect to buy a "good" politician?
You already see the logic behind buying the worst ones.

I've seen some really awesome bar regulars and even cafe regulars drop some big tips on a  server's birthday. So there is some wiggle room for a regular to drop a large tip on a server they see 4 times a week or more. Not at chains though. An impersonal Starbucks just isn't the same personal league as Bob's Burgers.
