This week on BTL, we've cover the important news: Bobby Pin-Gate 2016, Michele Bachmann's latest talking spell, and, Hillary Clinton's continued technological failings. Oh, and I guess while we're at it we get to Trump's surprise Mexico trip (?!!?!), polls, some news about where on earth Clinton's been for the last month, and other more traditional "news" news. We bring it all because we care. We're THOSE friends. You're welcome.
Many of us are still less than enthused by the Clinton/Kaine ticket, but as your Facebook friends rant about voters who haven’t gone full-Clinton being traitors to the human race, they might be forgetting that that there are thousands of ways to fight the rise of Il Duce without putting time and money into his heavily compromised opponent. Here are some ideas.
Yesterday, two of our obsessions, gun control and real-life, non-silent, non-procedural filibusters collided as Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT, Newly Minted Hero) held the senate floor for 14+ hours to demand a vote on two of the most minor and widely supported gun control measures on the planet.
We encourage anybody in a state voting tomorrow to show up to the polls and vote for whoever you damn well please even if you've been told nothing matters anybody and your time would be better spent staring a 24 hour news coverage and eating ice cream. Don't allow your vote to not matter by not casting it.
