I'm 2 years older than you, and mine is 61.

My dad is 68. Or maybe 69, now? Not entirely sure.

Point is, your mum's a spring hare by comparison.

Oh god all the worries I have about my mother falling over or mismanaging her blood sugar. She's only 55!

The presidency...
The senate...
The house...

I don't understand.

What the fuck. What the actual fuck.
It's a movement. I guess it's a yuge movement.

Had to punish my two pre-teen nephews (once removed) today for literally fighting about the election, in a school in England:o
Unlike me, they don't have citizenship, and definitely no election rights (separate from the fact of age).
Apparently there were quite a few participants according to the local parents irc.

Whaaaaaaaat?

...People from my school might just fight over Clinton-Sanders. Wow.

In other English-American news, my dad can name all the states of America on a map, even if you don't show him the map. He can visualize it.

He doesn't have any particular job related reason to. ???

Pretty much told them that if they still want to bring America into their school, I'll bring a paddle in too and make it authentic. :-\

TBH my life won't change that much, I already live in a conservative hellhole that elects assholes for the worst and flimsiest reasons. This is just the country doing it instead of the state.
Wait... Where do you live?
Kentucky. Last gubernatorial election people put in a goddamn Yankee carpetbagger businessman who's been busy breaking state laws and dismantling our health care system. Because he spoke supporting that incompetent homophobic county clerk that refused to issue paperwork to gay couples trying to get married. Fuck this state.


The state government went fully red yesterday. Weakened unions in Kentucky are almost guaranteed now, and wages/work safety drop in general when unions are weaker. So everyone can look forward to that. And Bevin can probably have his way with Obamacare here unimpeded.

We've also got a federal government that's now more likely to leave things up to the states, allowing for even more good decisions. Maybe we'll take another pass at passing an anti-trans bathroom bill.
I know. We're already so deep in the goddamn hole that you can barely see it getting deeper. He's already wrecked Kynect, mostly, I'm not sure how much damage is left to be done. Unions were weak as shit already, at least from my perspective -- one that barely does anything, several workplaces that outright tell you that attempting to organize means immediate termination--with unsafe working conditions to boot; nothing like working with tattered, rotting fiberglass insulation with no respirator masks or goggles, eh? I'm putting what tiny scraps of hope I have in the courts continuing to roadblock him, and stepping up to stop unconstitutional bullshit from the GA if any passes.

We've seen this coming for a long time, though. The old standard of "Democratic state that votes Republican in POTUS elections" has been withering for years. Only thing left to do is keep on trucking and holding Yarmuth (or whoever succeeds him) in the House, because I'm damned sure Louisville won't go red any time soon.

11/9, never forget.

Since nobody responded last time I asked and it's buried under like twenty pages of Ameripol: how feasible is it to immigrate to Canada to attend college? I have a variety of reasons now, but foremost is that I'd rather not have to deal with American student loans with a Trump economy on the horizon.

So, to comfort or reassure the Americans; I've been trying out new cigarette brands lately. My usual brand has gotten worse than the prize. And let me tell you, American smokes are the best. That has not changed. Of course, if they're made in America or grown in America or if the brand is even American anymore is another question entirely. I want to believe.

So can I (mostly), which is odd. It's... Interest. The Americas, and the United States, are interesting. It's not a very popular party trick. Singing the Soviet national anthem on demand tends to draw more cheers.

Here in Virginia, I know there's a big Marlboro factory in either Petersberg or Richmond, and in quite a few areas you can still find large tobacco fields, when they aren't growing soybeans for the sake of crop rotation.

I doubt that stuffs there for the fun of it.

By the reports of my customers, Native or Seneca brand cigarettes taste almost exactly like marlboro, but they're both additive-free premium brands. And also half the price, at least as my employer was selling them. I guess if you're going to smoke, smoke something with the shortest list of toxic crap in it...

Dittoing this.

Also, what about transferring credits?

Canadian immigration site servers crashed last night.

Pretty damn funny, when you take a moment to think about it.

Canada's gonna build a wall and we're gonna pay for it
