    Similar to me but I went with Chuck Baldwin.

    There was this thing about Ronny... He liked to invite astrologers to the white house. That was kinda weird.

    I can honestly say, I have never liked a single candidate that has been offered since I was voting age (bush sr was first).
    Although, at the time I was cool with Clinton nutting on some fatty's dress while at work, so I guess that's the most I've ever liked a president.

    But not voting is a kind of message.
    Low turnout should be an indicator that deligetimizes the system.
    The power of the government should be tied to how many people actually vote.
    Lower turnout should mean lower government power to do anything. There should be a system with the government's ability to tax is tied to voter turnout, regardless of who wins the election.
    That would be awesome.

    Now I wait for Ruven's mods to the idea with 384 different rules and cases to make it incomprehensible.

    All those valley girl hot yoga chicks you are banging must be worth it.

    I know diablo is just taking back the "im not religious but im spiritual" meme away from the former tians whose parents forced to go to church or college students who took a class about eastern cultures or someone into some mystical self empowerment trip that uses mantras massages oils crystals chakras martial arts dreamcatchers etc... Or maybe just someone into curry and weed.

    Never been a big fan of Dave Chapelle.
    He just doesn't make me laugh. To be fair, I have barely watched any of his stand-up or his show.
    Appreciate the talent though.
    He's clearly an upper tier, all-time great who has made a shit ton of money telling jokes and has earned the adoration of his peers

    I checked out the Netflix special for about 10 minutes (along with select clips online) and wasn't really amused.
    Do I agree with some of his observations? Sure. But was it funny to me? Not especially.
    I didn't find the subtext original or that insightful, either.

    Nick Di Paolo's "Breath of Fresh Air" wasn't exactly amazing, but I think it was funnier than Dave's special.

    ...The thing about Bernie Sanders is he cannot get the black vote. I keep e-mailing the fucker; change your first name to "Colonel"!


    I will give it a longer watch sometime and see if my opinion changes. It's hard to say for sure something is not funny when I haven't watched the entire special.

    Until then...

    I tend to agree although the man made me laugh out loud several times during this special
    what's amazing is that even though he's a liberal he is out there taking a bat to a lot of their nonsense
    he's just citing common sense but its rare to see that coming from a Hollywood minority, comedian or not
    the juicy smolet bit was worth the price of admission
    watching the folks in the crowd go from big wide smiles to sitting back uncomfortably was, well juicy
    his shows are legendary of course, but his continual laughing at his own jokes and walking to the back of the stage got old
    still its about time comedians start taking back the stage
    there were all sorts of things I didn't agree w but that's sort of the point
    no one is supposed to be comfortable
    and its been a loooooong time since I've seen the left get taken out behind the wood shed so good on him

    I watched his Netflix special last night. I thought it was pretty funny, but didn't stand up to his work in classics like, "Half Baked."
    I can also understand why some people had their feelings hurt.
    I think it's fuckin hilarious when he makes fun of white people. I should probably work on being more butthurt about that.

    I thought the first half was the strongest part. He derailed a bit on the Alphabet people bit. The joke itself is funny, but the whole "who sits where in the car of gay" was a bit meh to me.

    Still, he killed it in the last ten minutes, because as much as I disagree with him, he set out to burn down the village with that, and he did it.

    I think that punching bag has "subjective theory of value" written on it.

    Dude i'm working on it!
    Old habits die hard.
    I appreciate the message.
    So i'll give you a little bit of classic.
    One paragraph, just for old times sake.
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Rule 1. There is no should.
    Case ยน Self evident.

    Not voting is like not going to church.
    Exactly the same thing.
    You either practice the state religion and take part in its religious rites and light your votive candle to elect your guardian angels and you better pay your tribute... Or don't.
    Nobody will judge you except your peers.
    Low turnout is by design.
    It legitimizes power.
    The fewer the votes the more powerful they are.
    A country that actually wants the majority of people to vote would do it differently.
    That is not how the system works.
    If the governments power to tax was tied to turnout then even fewer people would vote.
    Then the incentive is to have low turnouts so the government can't flex their power.
    At least from the people who don't want to be taxed further.
