  1. US elections 2016 - "Go ahead, throw your vote away"

    My impression was that he's willing to be utterly hated and unpopular to achieve his goals so I thought he'd stick to his guns.
  2. US elections 2016 - "Go ahead, throw your vote away"

    If Vox is to be believed it's more that he's facing a potential primary challenge. So the same reason everyone else gave up their dignity. This is pathetic.
  3. Mr. Robot (spoilers).... 'cause I suck at this stuff

    Just the finale? Elliot's job has either been to be the audience surrogate who doesn't know anything, the wet blanket or just a flat out liar in terms of what's actually happening the entire season.
  4. US elections 2016 - "Go ahead, throw your vote away"

    I don't see how my post requires every Trump supporter to be a...deplorable to make the point?
  5. Mr. Robot (spoilers).... 'cause I suck at this stuff

    Yes. I mean...Phase 1 was supposed to be a big deal and yet it gave us this season, so I'm not sure why revealing Phase 2 is some sort of glorious capstone that can end the season. We've learned that the big moments don't necessarily force the show onto a different pace. It's hard to get really excited about it.
  6. US elections 2016 - "Go ahead, throw your vote away"

    This is why you get into the circle-of-madness where Bernie people demand policies that favor them and claim that she never ever talks about policy (and then reject policy but that's on the backend). Bonus points if they were the ones complaining about "low information voters" going for Hillary in the primary. This is why I have no sympathy for the handwringing from progressives and concern trolling from alt-righters and other disaffected groups about how progressives somehow made Trump's supporters his by being too smug...these people and this mentality have always been around. It's just vanity to believe that they belonged to you until you fumbled some ball. There really is no answer. for them. It's one thing if it's one person but they have an entire party that weaponizes any discomfort to blame people (like Obama) for being "divisive" and tied up in their identity so...what can you do?
  7. The Strain season 3 (Spoilers)

    It was written by a guy who directed Blade 2 so maybe not-so-parallel thinking.
  8. MMA & Boxing 18: "I'm The World Champion!"

    Right; There's a sort of leeway for Diego Costa-like fuckery where the person does something fucked everyone seems to go "well, that's just X for you haha", but when a fighter ends a fight talking about how he can't see at all..that's stomach churning. We've moved way beyond a few tactical fouls imo. It's hard, cause you don't ever want to accuse someone of trying to hurt someone else's eyes (except when it's Jones :P) but twice is enemy action, in MMA at least.
  9. MMA & Boxing 18: "I'm The World Champion!"

    That's the charitable explanation. It's happened before with Faber.
  10. U.S. Elections 2016: It's Not A Lie, If YOU Believe It

    I can't believe that I woke up to that video of Clinton. Jesus fucking Christ.
  11. MMA & Boxing 18: "I'm The World Champion!"

    Also: Faber needs to fucking quit. Once again he had nothing, and, to add insult to injury, he may have permanently hurt his opponent's eye, in what was irresponsible at best if not deliberate.
  12. MMA & Boxing 18: "I'm The World Champion!"

    He can do what Batista did and quietly take a fight on an amateur level. If it was merely about a challenge there was never any reason to hang than on the UFC.
  13. MMA & Boxing 18: "I'm The World Champion!"

    I'm not surprised motherfuckers. Punk made Gall look like Royce Gracie.

    It doesn't seem like a good idea to conflate "corrupt" and "conservative" (or to imagine a movement away from "corruption" as a move towards the center, at least the US center) as you see to be doing here. If we don't though...if Rubio and Cruz are the examples we're using they've basically fallen in with their party.
