    Good to see. I think he resonates well with a lot of people in the midwest.

    While the delegate math still isn't friendly to him going forward, a similar win in ohio on march 15th would definitely make things interesting

    Naturally I'll be in Texas that day. Otherwise, I'd throw him a vote.

    You can vote early in Ohio. Just need to find your county's Board of Elections, I believe.

    Good tip. I just moved so I'll have to figure that out before I leave.

    While looking up absentee voter hours at my local board of elections, I learned that I'm not registered to vote. Despite registering when I renewed my license 2 years ago. Isn't that some :poop:.

    If a US Drone Strike Kills 150 People, Does Anyone Care?

    Greenwald article: Nobody Knows the Identities of the 150 Killed by U.S. in Somalia but Most are Certain They Deserved it

    God, I hate that shit. That Greenwald article is definitely going to be one of my go-to anti-drone pieces now. It's such a disgusting, imperialistic practice. And we wonder why people are so willing to see Muslims as "the other" and not value their lives at all.

    my parents - and many republicans - are angry at Obama for not attacking ISIS but aren't aware that we are literally hitting areas with drones on the regular. (meanwhile, i'm angry at Obama for okaying deaths so indiscriminately...)

    do you have a thing for seemingly unrelated alliterative usernames or is there some meaning to that out of curiosity?

    avocado squirrel rides again Prestigious

    OctoberOrigins referred to the fact that i was born in october and the alliteration was on purpose. This one was just me combining parts of the last two songs i had listened to when i was trying to think of a new twitter handle awhile back. "Pyramids" by Frank Ocean and "A Picture Postcard" by The Promise Ring, so the alliteration was accidental.

    It is SURREAL to watch republicans respond to this clash of Trump supporters and mostly Black protesters with essentially "Trump is racist and people are rightfully angry" because it's Trump. Imagine them saying that about any other violent protest involving Black protesters? This is ridiculous

    Carson endorsing Trump broke my dad's heart (he did say he'd even consider voting for Hillary if it came down to her v Trump and he likes Bernie's character soooo we can hope that i'm chipping away at that)
