  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 @Three

  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 lo

  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. So i've been sitting with this post for a couple of days and I've been trying to collect and organize my thoughts so that I could best respond. I appreciate the thought put into this post @Emperor Diocletian II and I didn't want to just respond with a clever quip or snarky comment. You asked the question that with all of the trials and tribulations and systemic inequities that black people face "how could someone NOT become nihilistic?" the term you are using to describe the apathy that you see in people that would commit the types of acts like David Dorn's murder. I can answer... with a TREME

  6. 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 speci

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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”.

  11. 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

  12. 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

  14. We haven't had one of these in a while, so I figured why not make this holiday weekend the one for the first game giveaway of 2019? Rules are easy: just post in this thread over the course of the weekend and you're eligible to be selected! Note: if you're interested in the PlayStation version of a game, remember that in its infinite wisdom, Sony is no longer providing digital keys to third-party retailers like Amazon, Gamestop, Best Buy, etc. so if you're selected and you want a Sony game, you'll receive a PlayStation Store gift card code instead.

  15. 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.

  19. Some good news, I think: Spouse's test results were posted on the online Sask Health Authority portal, and she is negative. Can't say enough positive things about the process though: Wed - cough, headache Sun - chest tightness, fever, loss of taste Mon afternoon - called 811 Healthline, left msg, they called back in 1 hr. Approved her for test (and me). Ordered to quarantine for 14 days. Can only leave for test. Mon evening - get call from SHA, test is Tue AM Tue morning - drive to testing site. Large digital signs set up to guide. Multiple security station

  20. Thank you all so very much for this absolutely wonderful bounty! You have absolutely no idea how much this means to me (and Inuk for his new toy and jerky treats!) This community is a very special place and you all are like...no, not like...you all ARE family to me (albeit a slightly dysfunctional one on occasion ) Thank you so very much...I'm actually crying tears of joy right now!

  23. 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.

  24. 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 lea

  25. 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.
