Will be giving this a whirl this weekend
I'm just going to get the Financial Times, get the Financial Times
so i'm only vaguely aware of the eu vote and the potential consequences, but how close is this to the trump movement in the states? as in an uneducated populace (a minority i'm sure) following a right wing movement without any thought as to the consequences?
As an outsider this had all the stink of American politics -- plutocrats stoking the fears of the common people to convince them to vote against their interests. Thankfully Trump is going to get smashed in November. Demagoguery only gets you so far.

Wrong thread Erik!
I'd come out of sobriety to ledge it with Fadas.

Death Valley for me as well...
I get that they shouldn't force you to upgrade but honestly what's the big deal? Surely it's not any worse than 7. Definitely an improvement on 8.
I bet Runcorn Dave is up there.
I'd like to throw my own hat in for 97-98 emo bands from florida...
Line of Duty is really fucking good.
I've just dl'ed and haven't listened but will DEFINITELY do so on the back of this soundcloud comment:
"this is an awesome mix. you tell a great story of emotion and deepness through those dozens of fantastic songs. great job!"
iTunes is a shambles. Why Apple insist on one single application that does everything from device management through to online shopping and music streaming is beyond me. It's a bloated fucking mess which I used to put up with due to using an iPhone and a Mac. .
And if you have the nerve to try to run Itunes on a PC it's whole new layer of hell. Literally the worst application I have ever come across in my whole life. I finally use something like Syncios to transfer files.
Slabs..you're in Boston and Zack..you're in Philly? Why on earth would you two want to vote for someone who would raise your taxes significantly? Both of you. Including me live in the highest taxed cites in the nation. Were you for the min wage hike too? I can never see it getting to fifteen dollars. Or needing to.
I don't know if you know this, but "Taxachusetts" is number one in the nation in just about fucking everything. Lowest percentage of uninsured residents, #1 in education, including among the top 5 or 10 nations in the world in reading and math, best prenatal care, best access to medical and dental care, top 5 infant mortality rate, top 10 life expectancy, 2nd highest per-capita income, a booming tech-driven economy...I could go on and on.
So yeah I think the "welfare state" is doing just fine.
Also unless I'm mistaken I haven't see a plan where one of the Democrats would raise taxes on middle class Americans. It's definitely not in Hillary's plan, though of course I take all their promises with more than a grain of salt.

Give it up Zack, you lost. Obviously I support Bernie's pie-in-the-sky progressive policies as well but we live in the real world. Still waiting for the Ron Paul revolution to take place as well.
Great timing for a new Meek Mills set, thanks sparky.
Saying "the poorest cities are run by Democrats" is playing really fast and loose with causality -- as if Democratic leadership ran those cities into the ground, instead of it simply being the case that urban areas tend to tilt Democratic.
Unless you care to speculate as to why 95 of the poorest 100 counties in the US are run by Republicans?
It's called demographics.
Would the sepo's who said you'll never see Trump as President all come forward now please?
I said it. It's still true. There's a gigantic difference between winning a party nomination against a bunch of Republican moonfruits and a general election.

The build of this mix is just fantastic. Reminder of why Diggers is the best live DJ there is.
I thought Office Space was boss.
It's puzzling that the head offices of the insurance companies haven't been burned to the ground by angry mobs with pitch forks. The indifference to it by Republican voters shows a high level of savage ignorance tbf
You have to hand it to the Republicans -- they're great at leveraging social issues ("gays are gross!") to persuade their poorer constituents to vote against their interests.
US healthcare is a disaster.
We spend about £2000 per person per year on healthcare, give or take.
That's under $3500 per person per year for the yanks. For everything.
I don't know where the fuck Furry get's $1800 a MONTH from, that's insane, some people don't even pay that per year. The average is around $300 a month, which works out to about to about $3600.
It's still a shitshow but it's not that bad.
