This thread is going to be good.  And by "good", I mean "pathetic", and by "pathetic", I am referring to the individuals who will be posting in it.

The best advice is to immediately make your feelings known on social media.  Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, etc.  Everybody wants to know my opinion about the important political news events of the day.  It is by far the best medium for cogently expressing your views in a thoughtful manner, and your friends will thank you for making their lives just a little brighter that day.

AdmirableSnackbar: Norquist Vagprobe: AdmirableSnackbar: When you only vote for garbage politicians of course there's only shiatty political news. Vote for better and you'll get better news that's better for your mental health.

Snackbar? Is that you? I've never known you to hold the voters accountable for anything, unless they're Clinton or Biden primary voters.

Did you see me excluding those people in my post? No you did not.


Still though, it's an improvement.

Pol tab threads are a bright spark in the otherwise dismal gloom of 2020. Which is pathetic.
