I respect those who have served more than anyone else. You all are at the top of my list. No one has risked more. Thank you.

If you are someone that needs help or know someone that needs help, please, reach out to someone you trust. We don't need to lose anyone else when they come home.

Never finished it. The "retro" color palette (ie why is everything fucking blue?) threw me off. Couldn't do it.

"After being wrongly profiled as a criminal risk by a citywide operating system, Marcus Holloway..."

...decides to be a terrorist!

So the system correctly profiled him ^^

So basically the game is telling us to support terrorism and disable a system that 100% correctly ID'd a future terrorist?

This is already a movie. Isn't this Minority Report? I think there was another one as well.

Any hopes for real steps towards universal healthcare are dead.

Repealing Obamacare will be the best thing Trump does.

- Before Obamacare, I had health insurance at a cost of ~ 280 dollars a month. 500 deductible, 3500 out of pocket max.
- In the three years of Obamacare, my premium went from 280 to 300 to 400 to 720 (what it would be next year if I kept it.)
- My deductible went from 500 to 1000 to 1500 to 2500.
- I don't even know how much my out of pocket max next year would be. It was 6800 this last year. It'll likely be 10 grand or so. I just quit reading the letter after it said 720 dollars a month in premium.

(This isn't even counting the fact my medications have nearly doubled in price too.)

For the majority of Americans, it'll just be cheaper to pay the penalty. (You know, let's punish them for being TOO FUCKING POOR TO AFFORD HEALTH INSURANCE.) Yeah, that's a great system. Too bad we're losing it!

Sorry, not meant as an attack against you personally, but Obamacare is fucking bankrupting the people in this country who are unfortunate enough to not have healthcare through their employer.



Once again people forget Obama came from Chicago and is a big business figure head. The DEMS love to pretend they aren't stinking fucking rich!

You want to fix healthcare? Demand all law makers use it.

So far I've made $94 on my mutual fund investments. So there's that. That's about as far as I go. Yay for neutrality!

If you're smart and you can, buy as much as you can afford when they drop. They will rebound, as always.

I don't buy individual stocks, but absolutely. Now, would be the best time to buy. Historically the average has always shown that strong companies, who get hit by some kind of external force (e.g. 2008 housing crisis, election results, and so on), typical out-perform themselves. Warren Buffett said, "Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful". In other words, if people are selling, buy!

Logged in to a nice 3.5% gain today. Makes up for the 3% or so loss in the last 2 months leading up to this shitshow. Almost back to my high of 9% for a running 12 month period.

Anyone enjoy the pundits last night in just utter astonishment that they were so dead wrong that they were speechless? It was beyond hilarious. I only got 2 hours of sleep as I was enjoying them trying to think of something to say without puking all over themselves.

This was a HUGE middle finger to DC and the media.

Well, if that's the case, you're only hope is to get a boat and live in the open sea. Because you're saying that democracy never works. Or do you offer a solution?

Yeah, and it's not that difficult a solution either. Stop with the ridiculous cash contributions for policy. Everyone's railing about the Supreme Court going republican, but it was the democratically led SCOTUS that did the utterly insane "Corporations can now bribe politicians directly" interpretation.

Stop lobbying. Stop bribes. Stop letting Comcast just give a senator 30K in "campaign contributions", and suddenly that Senator is voting that Comcast should be allowed to raise their fees by 17000 dollars a month, and now comcast subscriptions are mandatory for everyone living in their service area.

I mean, they're not even TRYING to hide it anymore.

There used to be a time when this shit was illegal, but not anymore. As long as this goes on, the entire concept of democracy is null and void. Maybe we can call it "Democracy for the Rich."



We don't always agree - but this couldn't be more true. I have been saying this for a long time.

Can't buy votes, yet not one lawmaker writes their own laws. It is all lobbyists BS - which is why it is all funny money law shit and special interests. Anyone that does any homework whats so ever whould be appalled by what goes into these "bills".

On the one hand, I feel bad for anyone who bought Trump's rhetoric. He intends to follow through on none of it. On the other hand, there has been immense dissatisfaction with the US political system, and it just manifested itself.

The people wanted someone who understands them and the world they have to live in. A man who knows poverty and unemployment first hand. A man of the middle. A man who is not driven by greed. A friendly neighborhood billionaire.
Hillary cannot admit her defeat in public? Wasn't that actually what Trump announced he would do?
Trump will fire lazy non-white US citizens (don't ask, he just WILL) and will outsource US citizenship to China just like he did with the jobs in his companies. See? Problems solved. Easy.

Not defending anything - but posts like this confuse me, as Dems have done this for years and then felt bad about it and included them by selling out and defunding our Social Security.

No one ever does what they say they will once they get into office. The political system is sooooo corrupt in the USA. We just had a president for a whole slew of years who never went BACK to Chicago, never spoke of the corruption there, never talked about or tried to solve anything related to the cess pool he came from, yet was grown and fostered in an environment where several major political players are now in jail. A place where everyone votes twice even the dead.

I hope this is the end of the 2 party system.
