  1. U.S. Elections - Philadelphia edition

    Yeah this is a consistent thing with Johnson. He'd be just appalled if you got fired because you were black, but he wouldn't lift a finger to stop it because government shouldn't tell people what to do. Libertarians are the fucking worst.

    You are delusional. If anything Obama tried way too long to make nice, well after it became clear that Republicans wouldn't so much as piss on him if he were on fire. The man defined bipartisanship and he got nothing but spit on for his trouble.

    RE: current polling, don't break out the cyanide capsules just yet. Conventions always give their party a bump, we were always going to see a polling improvement for the GOP following their convention.
  5. U.S. Elections: The Trumph of the Will

    Much longer in the making than one bad press cycle, but yes. For christ's sake, I hope Clinton's campaign will finally learn that looking bad is enough to hurt you, even if you didn't technically break any laws. RE: Gary Johnson, he's a horrible proxy for Sanders. Many reasons why have already been discussed, but Johnson would also be fine with you getting fired for being the wrong race, gender, or sexual orientation. He's not "in favor" of that happening, technically, but he doesn't believe the government should be able to stop it.
  6. U.S. Elections: The Trumph of the Will

    Based on what I'm reading, it seems like there is no genuine story to the DNC leaks. There is a lot of shady-looking shit, and those optics are going to piss off a lot of people. As far as I can tell, they tip-toed right up to the line, but didn't cross it, which is pretty much the story of Clinton's last however long. Whether there were actual violations or not (there weren't, looks like!), Clinton and the DNC really, really need to start taking notice of how bad some of this stuff looks to the public, because I really believe it will have electoral consequences. So far they have shown zero inclination toward self-reflection on these matters, so hopefully they won't be enough to give us President Trump.
  7. U.S. Elections: The Trumph of the Will

    If they didn't actually do any of it, then it's a bit of a tempest in a teacup. I don't recall being asked that question before. I didn't pay enough attention to the Romney situation, so this is the first I'm hearing that the RNC asked him to do it, if that's what you're saying. It's not appropriate, although I have no problem with Romney shit-talking Trump of his own accord. And of course I don't like him and am much less bothered by it since he's in bed with all kinds of horrifying people. Re: superdelegates, I think the entire system is wildly inappropriate, and so do most people who aren't superdelegates themselves. The DNC knows it, too -- the only way they can stave off an all-out mutiny from their members is to hastily assure people that superdelegates have never changed an outcome and promise that they won't now.
  8. U.S. Elections: The Trumph of the Will

    Because (I believe) you shouldn't ask people if they prefer A or B (i.e., the primary election) while simultaneously working behind the scenes to try to tilt the scales. This question is bizarro land, dude. The whole point of a primary election is to tally the results of the vote of your party. If you already decided you want A, fine, pick A. But don't try to maneuver people into picking it for you while pretending you're a neutral party. It's dishonest. This is such an inane question I don't know how to answer it.
  9. U.S. Elections: The Trumph of the Will

    Yeah storing unencrypted CC info is beyond inexcusable. Kind of par for the course for political orgs though, they don't know shit about shit. I'm not saying it's illegal -- but the DNC has no business trying to force a particular outcome. It may not be illegal, but it's a real bad look. The DNC should not be in the tank for a candidate.
  10. U.S. Elections: The Trumph of the Will

    I mean, that's bad enough, isn't it? The DNC isn't really supposed to have its thumb on the scale.
  11. U.S. Elections: The Trumph of the Will

    So, does anything in this DNC email leak actually matter? Reddit is in a tizzy, but that doesn't mean much. Major "real" papers or news sites don't seem to be reporting on it.
  12. EDIT: Never mind, there are posts in the Dallas shooting thread, which makes sense and which I somehow did not see: http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/142393-police-killed-at-dallas-protest/
  13. Solo travelling for kids

    Okay. I flew on my own for a couple hours from a camp to back home when I was that age and I was fine. (Obviously this is a bit longer.) I was, however, comfortable with planes in general. If they've made three previous trans-Atlantic flights I would guess they'd be all right as long as someone gets them to the airport in plenty of time and there's someone to meet them when they de-plane. I've never used a concierge service like that but I am not sure it's actually needed. Main thing I didn't have to deal with at that age was customs. It'll be a lot of waiting for them, certainly.

    How old are they? How much traveling experience do they have in your company, if any?
  15. Careerchat II

    Congrats Isk! My job called me over the weekend to tell me they'd like me to attend training this week. It's nice to have my job offer me training, finally. A lot of it is barely relevant to what I'm doing, but if I can be the go-to guy on this in the future it's good news for my career.
