I thought that was his point: that the FBI didn't protect HRC, and in fact threw the election for Trump? That abuse of power by a Federal organization as powerful as the FBI is bad for everyone? Hoover basically ran the country when he ran the FBI. Am I misreading him?

The FBI has long been a conservative organization that has gone after liberals and "hippies" with abandon. That being said, they've done it (largely) within the constrains of the law.
Clearly the FBI is incompetent. They meant to tilt the election process towards HRC but instead they tilted it toward Trump. Changes clearly need to be made!

Because of the heat I was thinking maybe I'd go see a movie. Was looking around and.. what the hell? Really? 30 years later they make a movie about Gary Hart? Wonder what Hugh Jackman was paid to play him. Simply bizarre.

Eventually I'll get this cheap on a Steam sale,
If you have an interest in an exploring game it is probably worth the full price now. But yeah, I got it for $30 on sale -- quite the bargain.

Farmerís Almanac predicts brutally cold winter

That's for all you jerks complaining about the heat. This is all your fault! Thanks a lot!
I don't mind the cold so much (although I mind it more as I age) but the snow definitely sucks. *shrug* The price I am willing to pay for getting a Spring and a Fall and to be free of earthquakes, wild fires, and hurricanes.

Mueller's no idiot. He'll keep his cards close to his vest until the Dems have solid control of the house. Then the charges can't be swept under the rug.
And if the Ds don't get the House, I'm just hoping someone on Mueller's team is willing to take a copy of the investigation report and if necessary, leak it when the GOP buries it.

What you're describing is already illegal, or if not strictly illegal is a legitimate firing offense.
You think there was one guilty person? It was a "culture" of inappropriate behavior. Behavior which if you were working at a Fortune 500 company would get you fired.

Welcome to 2018. A place in time where, even if you name yourself Riot Games, you can not be as anarchistic as you like anymore w/o some SJW shitcocks climbing up and down your ass insisting that political correctness must be maintained. Le sigh.
After all, what's a few rape jokes between friends, right?

Any tennis aficionados here?

I'm watching the US Open coverage and when they show the brackets they only show one quarter of the full bracket at a time. Which is fine, what I don't understand is seeing as this is the first round, I would think half of the people would have seeds. But they don't. Despite having seen seeds as high as 32, you usually only see 3-5 seeds listed in each quarter-bracket. What is going on here?

Edit: Ahh, it is actually 1/8 of the bracket. 128 contestants, not 64 as I was thinking. So, 3-5 seeds per 1/8 of the bracket assuming 32 seeds is about right. Derp.

Ten years ago I would have said the same thing about gay marriage or a black president.
Yes, I'll agree prior to 2008 I thought it was highly unlikely I would live to see a black president. However, there was no constitutional block keeping that from happening. Basically, if you can't get 3/4 of the country to agree, there isn't going to be a change to the constitution. Can you honestly say you think 3/4 of the country will want to repeal the 2nd amendment within the next 30 years?

Simply because it should not be repealed.
I wouldn't go that far, there is nothing simple about the issue.

If people realize that the 2nd Amendment is already moot, there's a chance it could get repealed.
I'd say there is basically 0% chance of that happening any time soon. Certainly not in my lifetime.

While I would agree somewhat that the Ds are seemingly not doing a good job of capitalizing on Trump's idiocy, it is tempered by knowing Trump voters simply don't care. There was a poll not long ago where 51% of the GOP polled agreed that the media was an enemy of the state. There was another where a majority of the GOP (don't recall the actual number) agreed it would be a good idea to delay the 2020 presidential election.

There is only one thing the Ds can actually do to end the current situation -- show up in droves in November. If they do, some semblance of sanity might return. If they don't, I might get to see the US tumble into a failed democracy before I die...

One of the weirdest things I saw out of the 2008 financial crisis was CBS stock. Like everything it dropped significantly, ultimately to under $4 a share. I remember seeing it and thinking, "that's never coming back". Wrong. Don't have the exact number but it went up to about $80 a share. It's back down a bit now, but how in the world CBS recovered is beyond my understanding.
