[quote="goat balls"]Oh yeah FF, it looks like the FBI guys are leaking to the English newspapers to make sure it gets out.[/quote]


Today, in The Guardian, read the article that describes the FBI as Trumplandia, swarming with agents who view Hillary as the anti-Christ, agents who are using the powers at their disposal to sway an American election.

That's what it's all about.

Whose fiasco is worse? Our election or the UK's current woes?


Woes? Economy is swell. The remoaners are toasting (with socialist champagne no doubt) their pyrrhic victory at the high court yesterday. Unlike you whiny cunts this country knows what real hardship is, and Brexit isn't even close to being difficult. We will fucking PISS our way through whatever fate serves up.

You on the other hand have a choice between the two biggest shitcunts any political party vomited out, EVER. Two career criminals who are narcissistic sociopaths to boot.

A worldwide laughing stock, and boy it just keeps on giving. I fucking love watching it crumble.

Luckily the U.S. could function just fine with a jellyfish in the Oval Office.I think it's healthy for America to go through the next four years. People might start actually holding elected official accountable and the media might start reporting on things other than DC and Hollywood.

What was that about laughing stocks?

Don't sweat about the brexit thing. You haven't actually done it yet, and thanks to your high court it's not even clear if you can.

I've no doubt the US would survive 4 years of Trump without many major short-term consequences. The consequences for the rest of the world, however, are pretty grim. Not that any voters actually give a fuck.

America doesn't care about the rest of the world. With Trump or Clinton we will care even less.

Well, I voted. For Clinton, of course. She's a terrible neocon Wall Street Republican blah blah blah, but compared to Trump she's practically [insert your favorite leader of all time here]. It wasn't a choice I wanted to make, but at least it was incredibly easy to make.

BUT. So, there is this thing called Pantsuit Nation on Facebook that makes me want to hurl. It's a "grassroots secret Facebook group inspired by Hillary Clinton" and is so fucking obviously political advertising. The whole new marketing model for everyone in the USA is "the power of story." That's what my main client does, we turn your sales pitch, or your contract bid, or whatever corporate communication, into a "story." With a plot and social media support and all that other stuff. Pantsuit Nation has all these "posters" who create compelling stories - these are obviously professional writers - about how their 92yo mom finally gets to vote for a woman, or a same-sex couple overcame adversity to marry and adopt and finally gets to vote for Clinton, or a woman survived being sexually harassed by her boss and finally gets to vote for Clinton, etc. The posts are accompanied by professional-quality photos that are supposed to be phone snaps. OH. And you don't opt into this group. You're invited, automatically signed up, so you have to opt out. Once you're invited in, it makes it super easy to invite your friends, and the ones who "like" Clinton on FB are the first ones to come up. So, you look at the friends list and the first 20 or 50 people are people you already know, so it looks real. Although the posts - which are paid, so all of them go on your FB feed, unlike the pages you normally like where you hardly ever see a post - are these beautiful stories designed to make your mirror neurons buzz like cocaine and serotonin. It's fucking genius.

And, obviously paid political advertising, right? Like, blatant. Like, I was fooled for maybe two minutes. Then I started clicking around, and all the top posters had the same security settings, had demographically appealing, professional photos for their headshot and banner photos, you couldn't see their friend list, it was obvious. AND MY FRIENDS ARE ALL FALLING FOR IT. OH. MY. GOD. It's making me angry. Like, seriously pissed off.

OK, just wanted to vent, and when I did it on Facebook everyone was like, "No it's real, it's so inspiring, this woman waited 92 years to vote for a woman blah blah blah." And I'm like, I have nothing good to say about Sarah Palin except that I want her on my side in a bar fight, AND she happens to have a vagina, AND she would be the GOP nominee this time around if McCain had won both terms and done a decent job. And her credentials had nothing to do with who she was fucking, her husband is like a dog trainer or something, right? BUT WHATEVER. Geraldine Ferraro. Elizabeth Dole. Untold zillions of third party candidates. But whatever. After 92 years, that perfectly lit snapshot of an older woman with professionally done makeup in her church clothes, she finally got to vote for a woman and she's crying because it makes her so happy that she's come a long way, baby GAH.

You have made hundreds of insightful, informative and humorous posts over the years so you will eventually come back from even this colossal error in judgement. The country was doomed anyway so your tragic error in voting for a pathological liar with a Luciferian backup band will not change history much. In the future those who voted as you did will form a group that must be forgiven to move on, like the Kmer Rouge or the population of Rwanda.

Looking forward to your posts on any other subject.

It's pretty clear that Hillary, the spayed jackel will win against the gilded ferret. I am not sure whose guts she will feast on first in all her election glory but I hope her reign of postmenopausal fire scars America so bad they create standards that approximate standards for further presidential candidates.

I sort of thought Trump did OK, but of course all my friends thought Hillary smashed him. Especially with the fact checks coming through in real time, it was kind of hilarious to watch him says "I never said that" then have his tweet, where he said that, scroll across the screen. Which made me feel better.... but this is wrestling, not politics, did she REALLY win?

Then, I remembered the Mexican Peso.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/ ... ial-debate

After the conventions, the Hillary and the peso both got a bump, but during the weeks we didn't see much of the candidates, Trump gained ground and the peso lost value. Until mid-debate, about the time Trump made the hashtaggable gaffe, "I have a winning temperament" sending the audience into uncontrolled laughter. The peso had a major rebound. Which will likely continue all day. As did the S&P, although that was softer. I don't trust the Hillary supporters, and I sure as hell don't trust the Donald supporters. The money, I trust.




The Mexican Peso is still down.


Thanks for giving us another reason why women shouldn't be allowed to vote. Stop thinking with your pussy and start using your brain. If that's even possible.
I am the object of criticism around the world. But I think that since I am being discussed, then I am on the right track.

Voting with my pussy would have been difficult in Georgia. We use a touchscreen.
