    Pretty sure he was a democrat back then, so he would have been "Bernied" in the primary too.

    It depends on the family and the employer. I have a couple of relatives that haven't talked to me since the election. A coworker lost about a quarter of her FB "friends" when she let it be known she voted Trump. On the job, if you are in an at-will state, you probably don't want to talk about politics in today's environment. Sex, politics, and religion can get you in trouble, and not just from HR.

    I think some segment (a large one IMHO) of Trump supporters are afraid to talk openly about their support because they just don't want to deal with the BS. If you voted Trump, you aren't just wrong, you're evil in a lot of people's opinion. Sad state of affairs we've come to, and I fear where we are going to end up.

    It's WaPo, so of course there will be no evidence,and no named sources, but plenty of "might haves" and "maybe dids" and of course, "he should be impeached for it"

    They are trying hard to pass CNN in the Fake News sweepstakes.

    I can't begin to follow the math involved in anything relating to relativity, but I don't think you can think of time separately when talking about things at the fundamental level of gravity waves.

    Think of the ball on the rubber sheet depiction of how mass warps spacetime. Gravity waves passing through that depiction permanently alter it in some way. I couldn't begin to know how but I guess what they are getting at is that that than a sine (gravity) wave passing through, bending and returning to it's previous state, it leaves behind a change (an echo perhaps?) Being able to somehow see those changes would let the really bright folks theorize and prove some more things I don't understand.

    I think it's the "permanent" part of the warping that is new.

    Because they would open themselves to all sorts of questions and potential legal jeopardy. Which US political campaigns (at all levels down to city dogcatcher) opened accounts to spread propaganda?

    Did FB donate money to any of these campaigns or otherwise favor any of them? How about their algorithms, did they favor or censor anyone?

    Losing candidate(s) sue, in discovery, how do these algorithms work?

    Remember Whitewater? That eventually led to a perjury charge and an impeachment. Special prosecutors can go down all sorts of rabbit holes.

    The New York Times has not viewed a copy of the memo, which is unclassified, but one of Mr. Comey’s associates read parts of it to a Times reporter.

    More unnamed sources allegedly reading "parts" of a document supposedly created by someone who has only a passing relationship with the truth.

    Ok, fire up the impeachment machine.

    If all this is true, Comey himself may be guilty of obstruction if he didn't immediately pass the memo on to Justice.

    CNN lost me for good when they said it would be illegal to read wikileaks, I had to trust them to report on it. I can rarely watch the five or Hannity on Fox, and local network news. My TV, when it's on, is usually on sports or Netflix/Prime

    0< number of hate incidents/crimes > number reported

    0 < number of racists/ misogynists /nazis/actual deplorables > number reported

    Where on that spectrum, we'll have to disagree.

    I've seen enough of war to know that protesting it usually is patriotic. Afghanistan was necessary, and good, until they turned it into nation building, then it was shit. Iraq was completely unnecessary the second time, and questionable the first. Panama was good. Grenada was good. Vietnam was shit, but you have to look at it through the bipolar world of the cold war to understand it. Everything before that, I only know from history books, and those are written by the victors.

    This has been a good conversation. I like to talk to people who know how to disagree without being disagreeable. Happens too rarely.

    The last real one that I saw

    Missed that part, I think.

    That said, how can you be so sure you know exactly how prevalent and institutional bigotry is?

    By my own experiences, not what a media with an agenda says.

    I've lived in neighborhoods that were "integrated" only by my presence, they ceased to be when I moved. I've lived on both coasts, north an south. I've spent more than a month in 44 of the 48 contiguous states. I know and believe what I see.

    What you see as bigotry, I can't argue with. Neither of us is going to change the other's mind. Trump is blunt. That appeals to some, and utterly turns some off.

    Can you admit there’s something ugly underneath nativism?

    What you call nativism, I call patriotism. But my youngest years were in south Florida, and I dimly remember the missile crisis. I clearly remember doing duck and cover drills in elementary school. I joined the military during some of the warmest parts of the cold war, so my outlook is very different from most younger folks.I lived the first half of my life 30 minutes from the end of civilization, and maybe life on the planet.

    Until the bigots get out of hand. Beyond that, people need to die. You might need a March to the Sea. Or a D-Day. Or whatever.

    When they start rounding people up for death camps, I'll be there fighting. The organized violence from Antifa and associated cowards who have to cover their faces to bravely throw bottles and m-80s or sucker punch people is going to get someone killed, then one or both sides will have the martyrs they crave.

    Re-think your sources of information then. For real.

    Point me to some. Exclude NYT, WaPo, CNN, Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, or any late night "comedian" they are all shit for actual news. Propaganda, they do very well. NPR, BBC and Al Jazera are sometimes ok, though NPR is sliding.

    Note: I don't care about the latest gossip about which celebrity is sleeping with whom or their political opinions. I'm not really interested in the latest outrage, poutrage, or fauxrage of the day of either side. Trump is going to be the president for the next 4 years (maybe 8 if the left keeps self-destructing, certainly if Clinton is the dem candidate). He's not going to be impeached. No do overs or take backs.

    Hair Furor

    Haven't heard that one, I'm so stealing it.

    I know you don’t see bigotry. So ingrained is your habit of denying there is such a thing that every so often you need reminding there is.

    I grew up in the deep south with a father that named his black lab "nigger" so he could yell at it "Come here nigger" at the dog in the yard and piss certain people off. I joined the military to get away from that and spent 24 years on 4 continents and all over the US. I've lived in and spent time in nice places and not-nice places. both large-city urban and deeply rural. Bigotry exists, but it is not nearly as prevalent nor as institutional as some people are screaming.

    Draw attention

    The last one that I saw was real was the Charleston church shooting. Not a single graffiti one/non violent one has been proven true and many have been proven false. What leads me to belive most of them are false is where they are happening. (Not in red counties where all those "racists" live)

    explosion of overt racism in the Trump Era.

    I see an explosion of the MSM calling things racism. Deporting illegals or building a wall to keep them out isn't about anyone's race, it's about being here illegally. Not wanting to allow immigration from certain countries, or provide additional vetting, isn't racism. (Muslim is a religion, not a race. And there are far more predominately muslim populated countries than the 6 or 7 on the last ban EOs that were not affected. But "racism" is of course the favored byword of the talking heads who live in expensive gated communities and send their kids to private schools.

    It's called the Big Lie. And people that lack critical thinking skills will conflate race, religion, legal status and swallow the shit that the MSM feeds them. "I saw it on CNN/Daily Show/ABC et al so it must be true"

    My 1A point isn't about their unpopularity, it's about their right to speak. They are afforded the right to be stupid, offensive racists and even to display it to prove it. Turning violent because it offends you or even might offend you is the exact wrong play. Mocking laughter is much more effective.

    No one has the right to not be offended.

    He's protecting himself. In a closed session, he can't use the excuse "I can't answer that, it's classified" and his answers would have to match what was in his files in his office that he didn't have the opportunity to wipe, like with a towel.

    "Nazi", "white supremacist", "racist" and "misogynist" have become synonyms for "People I don't like" and "People I disagree with" for a large group in this country. According to these special snowflakes, the half of the country that voted for Trump all fit into one of those categories. They have used those words so often, so loudly, and so inappropriately, that they have lost any meaning except to virtue signal to their fellow mental defectives.

    Do these bad people exist? Certainly. Are they as widespread as some would like to (or have to) believe? Certainly not.The SPLC estimated the KKK has between 3000 and 8000 members nationwide in approximately 190 chapters.. A bit shy of the ~62M that voted for Trump.

    What about all the Nazi symbols and hate graffiti being found everywhere? Found everywhere in predominately areas that voted for Hillary. Time after time, it's the church member that burned down the church to "draw attention" to racism. It's the Jewish person who painted the swastika, the black college student that painted the racial epithet, the SJW who put the Quran in the toilet. All to "draw attention".

    It's the law of the free market, I suppose. There isn't enough racism or hate in the country, so someone has to step in and manufacture it.

    As far as free speech goes, the 1st amendment isn't there to protect popular speech. It's there to protect unpopular speech. Even hateful speech. These idiots in Antifa are free to call everyone they don't like whatever names they want (though they have no credibility doing so, and no sense of history). Escalating to violence to 'protect" (what exactly?) from speech they are offended by, not so much.

    When we look at the [2016 county-level election map] (http://brilliantmaps.com/2016-county-election-map/) it appears that the vast majority of the graffiti is happening in blue areas.
