I can't. I'm out. Life is too short to watch this debate.

Why am I watching this shitshow

What the actual fuck is this "debate"

Food (vegan) 

I've been curious about vegan lox for a while, but it seemed like a lot of effort (slow roasting carrots in salt, marinating) for what might end up being one of those foods that people who haven't eaten meat in a while say "It's just like the real thing!" but there's something off about it as a meat analogue or as a standalone veggie. Anyway, this is a packaged one that's a bit more al dente than salmon and admittedly does taste carrot-y by itself, but is perfect on a bagel.

Happy birthday to GNU \o/

Shout-out to the people who are legit trying to make the world a better place.

Just sitting around and thinking about my opinions (all of which are good) and how I arrived at them (born knowing everything)

I ate a bagel today. It was good but god damn the bagel coma is real

is your child a communist? 

they may be running "Linux", a known communist operating system that's handed out to everyone free of charge (imagine!) and comes with the built in commands "cp" (Communist Party), "ls" (Left Socialism), "rm" (Revolutionary Marxism), and "cat" (Communism at All Times)

Electoral strategy:

Why is it that the dems are always talking about how they need to appeal to repub voters, and never the reverse? My first thought was that American voters are really just predominantly cruel and racist so the dems have to try to appeal to that, but I really don't think that's the case. More likely the districts are gerrymandered so hard that the areas where the cruel racist voters live are where the contests are decided.

TikTok ban:

My prediction is they are going to cancel it at the last minute. Threatening the ban will get a lot of publicity, especially on the TikTok platform itself, then when the ban is dropped Trump can take credit for "saving" TikTok. Create a crisis and then save us from the crisis you yourself created, is straight out of the Trump playbook.

On the topic of SCOTUS, why are its members called "Justice?" Like they are the physical embodiment of the abstract concept of justice?

So, we're doing uspol tonight? Seems like the right night for it.

On the new SCOTUS vacancy, my guess is the senate will claim this is different from 2016 because it was Obama's 2nd term and therefore we were assured a new pres whereas now ofc Trump is going to be reelected therefore might as well confirm a justice now. Utter bullshit of course but if they say it like they believe it that will be all the justification they need.
