And now we know exactly how hard Republicans have to work at screwing up to lose in freaking Alabama.  Doug Jones didn't win this race.  Moore lost it.

Inb4 Fox and Republicans blame it on the liberal media manufacturing allegations against such a good guy.

Brandon you were an eternity too late. There was less than a planck unit between the results being known and Alex Jones suggesting fraud.

Turns out they accidentally counted black people votes as 1 vote each instead of 1/3
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I guess this goes in politics.  What do you all think about the whole Net Neutrality thing?  I have zero trust in Comcast, etc, but people on the internet are acting like this is the end of the world.

It's not the end of the world, but it has potentially serious consequences.  It's allowing the telecoms in the States to be the gatekeepers.  If it was any other country passing these sorts of laws, then it'd be unfortunate, but not a big deal.  However, as most websites are based in the states this has the potential to have cascading effects throughout the internet.  It's too soon now to know what'll happen.  They'll roll out their nonsense over the course of the next few years.  We just gotta ride the wave and see what happens.

If they have time

idk.

again full of hope that we will see a big blue turnout and take care of business including fixing the internet

in the meantime states seem to be keeping on their toes and delaying action, furthermore some states are also thinking of fighting with legislation protecting their citizens isp expectations, so we'll see what happens there

the judges tho, smh, so ****ed there. Like, idk, i wish when we retake power and they're foudn to be a criminal cabal we can go line by line on all these confirmed judges and boot em, that's pie in the sky **** but these guys will do the most damage by far

same with his cabinet boys, damage is done imo, and as long as they maintain their positions damage will continue, so till that gets cleaned its another net loss
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Here comes the shutdown.  And don't look at the Stormy Daniels stories.  DO NOT.  Unless you want to have those images in your head.



EDIT:  The clock has hit midnight, we officially have a shutdown!

Not much of a shutdown, thankfully.

State of the Union tomorrow.  You should probably start drinking now.
