Zuckerberg looks like he's cosplaying as Data.

I read "threat to our democracy" as "threat to the democrat party" and it makes more sense that way.

Part of the problem here is that our own intelligence agencies have been undermining our own democracy.

And it is by no means their first time doing such a thing.

This is why they call it "selling out."

We build trust in institutions, but the people who make up those institutions change. Eventually you get some jerk who wants to convert the goodwill into cash or something equivalent for their own benefit.

I used to have an ISP that was really good and had a great reputation. It got bought out by complete jerks who scammed me when I tried to leave. It seems like there's this constant treadmill of selling out.

I've read plenty of letters from lawyers and this looks like BS. A good lawyer will definitely cite whatever laws you supposedly violated. This reads like what a shyster would do when they want you to stop doing something because they wrote a letter on legal letterhead but they have no legal basis for asking.

So I'm not actually saying they're a shyster, I'm just saying I don't know how to distinguish them from one. IANAL, etc.

I thought the Demoncrats bought them during the primaries?

It's like flipping a coin, if it keeps landing on heads, you've probably got a trick coin.

When all the "errors" only benefit one party, well, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that it's a trick.

Reddit also has a post with a ton of karma and a zillion awards saying it's "fascism" for us to get to watch the votes be counted. Really.

Just wait until they have to walk back more results :)

Report to the salt mines first thing tomorrow!

Still early results, but we're favored right now and it flipped its lean projection.

538 is already starting to melt down.

They say that losing to Mitch has become a "tradition" for them :D

I found the original TD on Reddit back when we could get on the front page, then I followed it through the Great Cuckening of Spez until they quarantined us for allegedly threatening the police (LOL) and eventually edited that out when banning us.

I quickly found that it was the only place for uncensored news and kept watch as you guys threw a monkey wrench into the propaganda machine.

Why do I remember that meme where Homer tells Bart that it's only the worst day of his life so far? :)

Ahh you're right, I forgot that weird rule. That's at least some consolation, but we need to do better than a tie.

They're trying to target likely Dem voters to get them to the polls.

Feel free to waste their money though if you have time to spare, but don't stay out late. Things will get ugly if they see themselves losing.

Judges are really hard, we should share more info on this if we can get some lawyer pedes to help us understand their rulings.

I kept notes about really bad legal decisions I saw in the press, but most of those seem to come from Article 3 judges that aren't subject to elections :(
