This white man over 50 just contributed to Jill Stein's effort to recount the election in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania:…

We aren't all Breitbart fanboys like Jarhead.

Jill Stein has begun an effort to recount the election in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. She needs to raise $2.5 Million by Friday at 2:00 PST. Please contribute here:…

Even small donations help.

I can understand why Clinton might not want to challenge the election, but Stein has nothing to lose.

I did give Trump a chance. Then he nominated Steve Bannon to be his chief strategist and senior adviser. I'm not giving Trump any more chances.

^ Where in this post did Steve suggest that no one from outside Oregon should move here? Where has he ever done so?

Don't smoke pot in your apartment either. Your upstairs neighbor is sick to death of having his apartment smell like a flatulent skunk EVERY FREAKING DAY. If you live in an apartment building, switch to edibles.
Oct 14, 2016 albert commented on Ringo Starr Is Basically My Surrogate Uncle.
Very few drummers argue that Ringo was a shitty drummer, and those that do tend to be obsessed with technique rather than music. His shuffles are perfect, and his fills -- especially during the Beatles' psychedelic era -- are melodic and inventive. Imagine any other drummer playing on A Day in the Life or Strawberry Fields Forever; neither song would be anywhere near as good.

Still, I would love to hear Keith Moon on Helter Skelter.

Yes, it is only for atonal immigrants. That's why you hear Arnold Schoenberg every time you're on the east end of the Burnside Bridge.

I’m not surprised it took a foreigner to notice that. Americans today are nothing but riff-raff, and you’re lucky if someone doesn’t knife you for even the slightest display of good manners. Regrettably, we as a nation have become accustomed to it.

In the America of my youth, when someone said, “Thank you,” even the most detestable miscreant would reply, “You honor me deeply with your words. The idea that I may have performed any act or spoken any words that would elicit your gratitude fills my soul with a jubilance that I had hardly imagined possible. It is my greatest desire that someday I may again receive the thanks of such a fine gentleman (or gentlewoman) such as yourself. May the angels smile upon you.” Of course, that was BEFORE OBAMA.

Don’t worry. As soon as Uber replaces its drivers with driver-less cars, all Uber drivers will be out of their jobs. By driving for Uber, they're funding Uber's program to make their jobs obsolete. And, if Uber has its way, they won't even be able to collect unemployment, because Uber considers them to be independent contractors instead of employees.

The bad news is that taxi drivers will most likely be out of their jobs by then, too, and they are also independent contractors.
