  1. Let me @skillzdadirecta your attention to how I see this election: Trump saw the call earlier for @Joe Biden as @Mr.Vic20 President-Elect and said @BloodyHell. Sure, he wanted to be a @CastlevaniaNut18 but unfortunately for him this is a democracy, not a monarchy. As American @CitizenVectrons, it was our duty to put new leadership into the White House even if it was as laborious as pushing a skyscraper up a @SlipperySlope. We couldn't just let bad things happening drive us to @Spawn_of_Apathy. We had to wait as the results @Slugged along, yet our patience paid off. Biden won @ThreePi of those Rust Belt states we lost last time, and Trump lost @mrbiggsly. The margins are big enough where we can say this is a mandate and we didn't @Dodger a bullet. Signs were @Ominous Election Night, and when Florida, home of the @Commissar SFLUFAN in Gainesville, tipped toward Trump, it felt like a @Comet had hit us, or worse a @Spork3245 in the eye or @Brick to the face, our morale @Chollowa. We stayed calm with no @Remarkableriots. Rudy tried to be a @Massdriver of misinformation, but it came from Rudy, which @Signifyin(g)Monkey that it was bullshit. Libertarians and liberals and Democratic socialists joined together, rivals who came together like @marioandsonic. In a way, Trump did unite us, but against him. The @silentbob majority in this not so @SilentWorld was the Biden voter: no ostentatious red hat, no rallies, just a vote that ended up being louder than all of boat parades you can think of. We were not @PaladinSolo; we were together in this. No difference made being @MarSolo, but as one unit, we could fight back. We saw that he could win once (and doesn't pre-2016 feel like @SimpleG times in comparison?) so we wouldn't be @LazyPiranha and stay home. Sure, we weren't @Kal-El814, but not all heroes wear capes. While his tantrums may @Ricofoley in people's minds, remember that he won't stay as president soon; January 20 will be his @finaljedi day where he can say that. If he says he is on January 21, just be like @SaysWho?. And @Jason Miller will be gone, too! @osxmatt Gaetz can whine, but it makes no difference. And no more hearing someone pretend he's done more for the black community since @cusideabelincoln. Will Putin and Trump @69los after January 20 and put it on @Bloodpornehub? I don't care! And whether you like/dislike or are neutral toward her, Kamala being the first woman in the White House will leave a @GeneticBlueprint for future generations as to what's possible, a giant @stepee toward a more perfect union, and a reminder of the @Firewithin our American spirits to vote, where my one vote is worth as much in my state as Trump's. Yes, it's fun to picture Trump as a @Chairslinger and crap on his @Reputator, but this is more than that. I don't need to check out @sexy_shapiro's Twitter account to read his silly comments. I can just bask in this triumph and then get back to work tomorrow. We'll need Biden, Harris, but more importantly, the American people to @Captain Pickle this ship to calmer waters. We'll start with getting those Georgia Senate seats. Then maybe a safe COVID @vaxick? And God, this year has felt like it's taken forever. Wasn't it yesterday that @Chris- Matthews was let go? Feels like it. Hell, it feels like not long ago that Biden announced he would @run32.dll for president. Or Bernie/Liz, who we thought were @Greatoneshere but couldn't get the votes. As an aside, @Keyser_Soze is one of the characters in The Usual Suspects which is a @sblfilms, Americans like @Bacon, @b_m_b_m_b_m are on the bottom of your keyboard, and @mclumber1 is what we'll eventually have after we chop down a tree. Sorry but I don't think I can figure out bullshit ways to sneak more of you into this story.

  2. There is never a guarantee you’ll get a Schadenfreude Day like this. There are election years like 2016, where you just have to sit there with gritted teeth while Billy Bob Joe from Bumblescum celebrates the election results with hoots and hollers and lynching a black man. But not this year. No, this time Donald Trump has to eat shit from a man old enough to be my grandfather. It has been four long, agonizing, and stupid years, so you better believe I am going summon every single petty, misguided instinct within me to bask in the glow of this defeat. You lost, Trump. I know the Dems also lost because they likely aren't getting the Senate and because they always suck but that doesn't change that Trump lost. Our grunting Cheeto dictator of a president probably would have won if he took Covid seriously by just listening to the smart people in the room for once in his miserable life, but of course the bloodworms in his brain would never let him do that, so now he has to watch the election and the presidency slip through his tiny hands and now everyone is happy because FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU, we cry from Pennsylvania. FUCK YOU, they cry from Georgia. FUCK YOU, they cry from Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, and maybe even North Carolina a little. All over the country, people gather as if for worship, except in this case they’re doing it to lift their middle fingers aloft and cry out FUCK YOU. Choirs of small children gather on stage risers in tasteful white robes to sing the words FUCK YOU in angelic tones. Passing cumulus masses in the sky arrange themselves into a warm FUCK YOU shape as a message from the heavens. A lone woman runs across an alpine mountainside to tell the hills the news that Trump lost, and therefore FUCK YOU FOREVER. I have no doubt that Trump and his whiny, entitled dipshit cultists will take the worldwide celebration of their demise (for now at least) as a hint, but I hope they do. One of the issues with America is its education system, and I think one of the problems with it is that none of our schools appear to offer any sort of course in How To Go The Fuck Away. You people could use one. You people could stand to go take a sabbatical in fucking Greenland for the next three decades. Go away. Fuck off. Leave the rest of the world alone with your endless, bipolar neediness. Donald Trump? Go the fuck away. I could not bear another four years of this man. I couldn't. It’s like they took everything bad about America, boiled it down, and then poured it into a big fat orange mold and THIS asshole is what popped out of it. I hate him! I hate him so MUCH. I hate him nearly as much as all of Ivanka does. Mitch McConnell? Go the fuck away. I wish you had lost either your election or the Senate, so you could go spend your remaining days as the dour tortoise farmer you were born to be. Tucker Carlson? Go the fuck away. Learn how to make some sort of face that doesn't look like you're confused and looking around the room trying to pick out the guy who farted. Sean Hannity? Go the fuck away. You deserve to have Obama force-feed you an entire bottle of dijon mustard live on air. Rush Limbaugh? Go the fuck away. How you are still alive is beyond me. Go the fuck away, MAGAtards. You’ll have to find a different year to celebrate the GOP's dystopian zeal for making literally every human being miserable and replaceable, and to pretend them winning somehow makes up for your own myriad, hilarious personal shortcomings. This is a glorious day. I’M GONNA GO STAND BY THE NEARBY FREEWAY AND PASS OUT FREE STEAKS TO EVERYONE BECAUSE TRUMP HAD HIS SHIT RUINED

  3. Today is such a special day in so many ways. It’s the first day where everyone is finally feeling comfortable enough to celebrate a Biden victory. And for me it’s my 400th day without alcohol. I’m so happy with myself and the world right now that I feel like crying. This is a good day.

  4. I'd like to give thanks to our PA residents. @Chris-, @Greatoneshere, @marioandsonic, @MarSolo. Thank you for helping push this victory over the line. I know there are other PA peeps here but I can't remember every single one right this second as I write this on my phone while walking my dogs. Special shout-out to our resident Libertarian @mclumber1 for setting aside his preferences and voting for the greater good in his swing state. @Remarkableriotsgets a shout-out here too. Shout-outs and thanks to @Commissar SFLUFANSFLUFAN, @Joe, and others who I can't remember specifically who made calls into battleground states (I think maybe @Chollowa?). Pretty sure @Dodger who is in AZ voted for Biden too. He gets thanks for that. I know @Iculus is on Georgia, but I don't know who he voted for. If it was Biden then you get a thanks as well. Can't forget our midwest folks either. @vaxick and @Ominous in MI I know for sure. Not sure who else is a midwesterner here. Can't forget @SlipperySlope who donated like half of every paycheck to blue as well. And lastly thanks to all who voted for Biden even if he wasn't our absolute favorite candidate or first preference. Or even if he was. Even if you live in a ruby red state like me or a safe blue state. The popular vote will give Biden some sort of mandate and you contributed to that. But, the work isn't over, it's just beginning! Hugs and fist bumps to you all.

  5. So I'm visiting my family this weekend for a hunting trip and gods, this is another world here. Trump flags everywhere. FUCKING EVERYWHERE. I haven't see a single Biden sign. My dad has two in his shop. Hanging next to the Confederate flag. I asked him if that was his hall of losers up in the rafters.

  6. The 7 people i took to the polls for the general asked if I could take them for the runoff. I agreed, of course, and asked if they had any friends or family that needed a ride as well. We'll see what happens.

  7. I want to thank everyone’s contributions to this thread. It was the most concentrated outlet of information. I haven’t needed to watch a single minute of TV to follow along...and the fucking memes were amazing. Funny story - I was relaying information from this thread to my wife, who was glued to CNN, faster than she was getting it. So she asked me where I was getting the info from - So I tell her a video game message board I go on. She legit LOL’d at me. As it continued and time went on, she shut off the TV and would ask me every 1/2hr “what is everyone on that board saying”. thanks everyone, for real! Today is our 16yr anniversary from the day we met (married 12 years). What a fucking glorious day to celebrate it.

  8. I'm probably going to call it a night at 10pm, largely because I'm beyond the point of concern. But - I will say this to you all. No matter the outcome of this thing in the next few hours or days, you will always have a "home" in our little community. You will always have a sympathetic ear to vent about what's going on in the world. I can't change or control everything that goes on out there, but I can absolutely control what's going on in here, and I fully intend for this place to remain your "safe harbor" during these times that try our souls. This is my promise to you all

  9. I'm very worried, not just about the election, but about what everything leading up to this moment means for the future of the country. The fact that literally anybody with eyes or ears thinks that Donald Trump should be president is itself insane. And after four years of watching things spiral helplessly out of control, in the middle of a worldwide pandemic and the worst economic recession in generations, to still throw your support behind him and the sycophantic republicans in congress is essentially malicious and sociopathic. I've always been hard left, but to some extent I thought that I understood the general tenets of conservatism and their merits. It's abundantly clear now that those ideas are a smokescreen for the greed, racism and hatred that lives at the core of the republican party and within its followers. I think the bigger issue, however, is that it's very clear that we will not rise to meet the existential challenges facing us in the next few decades. I just don't see how it's possible given the intense social and economic division that has all but crippled our society. That said, these things are far out of any individual's control, and while the scale and scope of suffering in this country and on this planet is overwhelming, there is always an opportunity to do the right thing, no matter how small it seems. I want to note how I am humbled by the intelligence and compassion that I've seen on this board regarding everything going on right now. There will always be internet bullshit (it's all over this thread!), but this place has served as an excellent resource and an oasis during these trying times, so way to go everybody, keep it up.

  11. Now that everything is ok, I'm ready to share. My parents have been fully vaxxed (Pfizer) since spring but still caught it. My mom had a light case but my dad (in his 70s with numerous health issues) developed pneumonia. He spent a week in the hospital but is now home and recovered! His doctor said if he wasn't vaccinated he most likely would have died. The doc said that there were many other covid cases that were much worse off than my dad. In fact, at first they didn't think they would even have a bed for him and that he would have to transfer to a hospital two hours away. Luckily they had a bed, and thank the good fucking lord for vaccines.

  13. For the record, I had no idea we have a space laser. Local Jew Feels Left Out Of Worldwide Jewish Conspiracy LOCAL.THEONION.COM SOUTHFIELD, MI—It is an hour past sunset on a brisk Thursday night, and, like their brethren around the globe, the Jews of this affluent Detroit suburb are gathered in synagogues, busily hatching plots for world domination through financial chicanery and media influence. But for Seth Nussbaum, it will be just another lonely evening.

  17. If it gets called for Biden, I will open a bottle of Wild Turkey. If it gets called for Trump, I will open a bottle of Wild Turkey. The only difference will be whether I also grab a glass.

  18. Alright, first off, I apologize for being completely unstable last night. I should be glad I didn't do any drinking... Anyway, let me sum up my thoughts as of now: POSITIVES: --As of now, if looks like mail-in and early voting will give Biden the votes he needs to pull off the win from behind. And Trump getting booted from the WH is a much, MUCH needed victory, especially with how 2020 has gone. --There is still a chance that the Senate would be split 50/50. Assuming Biden wins, while this means the Dems won't get the majority like we hoped, it would at least give them the tiebreaker, so maybe they can get some shit done. NEGATIVES: --This was nowhere near the landslide that we were hoping for, which would have been a rebuke on Trumpism. Which means that for the foreseeable future, the GOP is going to triple down on it. That does not bode well for 2022 and 2024... --If this doesn't demonstrate how big of a failure the Dem leadership is, nothing will. Pelosi, Schumer, and the like need to step down, as their current strategy trying to cater to left-leaning centrists isn't working. Maybe this could work around into being a positive? But I doubt it. --The EC is still a joke

  19. You assholes will be glad to know I dropped off my ballot today, and I voted for Biden. The first time I've voted for a Democrat for President. Sorry Jo, maybe I'll vote Libertarian again in 2024.
