I'm quite scared for our future. Jingoism, sexism, science ignorance, and bigotry will not only be prevalent in this upcoming administration, but it will validate such behavior nationwide by its fanatical constituents.

Executive leadership often sets a culture tone in law, education. and attitude.

Many news outlets are trying to down play it to keep the peace and to prevent widespread panic, but history has shown that often the situation is much worse than is either predicted or what people are willing to imagine.

I truly hope our California government can protect us.

i think we're only mildly fucked. If you thought Congress stonewalled President Obama, just wait and see what happens with President Fuckstick Von Clownstein.

PS
Congress refusal to approve the SCOTUS nomination was a national disgrace.

Very different scenario. This time, he will be one of their own, Let's not underestimate the ability of an extremist to manipulate sycophants against each in order to obtain an uncontested outcome. See history. ...

I hope he does one thing, that's sort of expected of his campaign, and that's fight crime. It's surging and spreading in waves and it's getting to the point where places that used to feel safe are full of gangs, graffiti, shootings, and thugs. I'm not asking for a totalitarian regime or some kind of police state, but I'm tired of losing the freedom to walk the streets. I actually thought if Hillary won she'd push for better law enforcement as well, as Bill did.

Freedom to be safe and walk the streets should be considered a 'right'.
National crime stats are at decades-low rates, three times lower than just 20 years ago. If there's a surge in your area, it's local, and you can probably bug your local rep to do something about it.


Prop 47 and early release ... that's affecting all of California.

Fact Check

Also, do I have to mention Boston, San Bernardino, Orlando, and others?

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 think he can bring jobs back... corporations don't give out jobs as a charity, they are greedy. Besides, automation like AI, robots, and autonomous vehicles .. that's going to destroy jobs more than anything else and no candidate has ever addressed that problem.

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."



California Prop 59 - Passed

It's proof that we are not ruled by an oligarchy. We can dislike, fear, and even dread the results but we must admit, our democracy works.

It is / does it? We can still elect a weirdo as president, but the next four years will pretty much guaranteed go against the wishes of 90+% of the population, and be entirely dictated by the will of those with millions/billions to spend in lobbying fees bribes.

I'm fairly sure that's considered an oligarchy...

Many of us voted for Hillary and Trump won. But let's stand back in awe and respect of the US Constitution. It has proven it truly works. Democracy lives. No matter how much media bias, elitism, campaign money, intellectualism, and faulty polling is tossed around, a silent majority has won an election. It's proof that we are not ruled by an oligarchy. We can dislike, fear, and even dread the results but we must admit, our democracy works. The next election needs to be about all of the people, including the silent ones.

Predictions?

Presidential winner? Number of electoral votes? Results contested or accepted?

Propositions passed? Propositions failed?

Example:

Death penalty - kept or abolished?
Marijuana - legalized or not?
Single use plastic bags - banned or allowed?

What are your predictions on what will transpire in tonight's presidential debate?

I'm hoping for a well timed freak meteor incident so we no longer have to hear anything from either one of them ever again, personally.

Grr ..

So eBay has a 100% guarantee, but wait, stop ... not so fast. Seller sends me wrong item. I message seller. No response. I request return. Seller sends me a return label. Zero communication. No apology. Nothing.

I call eBay .. So basically, not only did I get the wrong item, in order to get my money back, I must get a new envelope, tape it up, drive to the post office (costing time and gas money) and then return it myself. Their suggestion is to leave the seller feedback. That's it? No credit for loss of money - gas and envelope - and inconvenience?

Never again ... Going to use Amazon or a direct online store -- with a solid customer service reputation -- in the future.

There are some things you have to go to eBay for, but in general, yeah... Amazon is really great with returns these days. All you have to do is put whatever is wrong or damaged back in the packaging it came in and UPS will pick it up for free. You don't even have to put a label on, they bring that with them.

Torch that seller's feedback rep and don't look back!

Thanks for that. I'll leave a negative feedback. I try to make it a habit of not giving any feedback, simply voting with my money (to be a returning customer or go elsewhere), but in this case I don't seem to have much choice.

Its funny BobBob, cause youre arguments could be used to make a case that humans aren't fully sentient either, or to be more precise that we don't have true free will.
