    I am German and what I wanted to say is that total surveillance isn´t a joking matter and can happen even/especially in western democracies.

    And it isn´t the current use of the footage that worries me, but the possibilities for misuse.

    This ad would have gotten a few chuckles out of me if it was a College Humor type thing, but as an actual campaign ad it makes me sad.

    Another USA presidential election cycle, another necromancy. (To be fair, Taure's post did the lion's share of the unearthing, but the truth is that simply nobody cares about our Euroshit.)

    I'll be damned if that isn't an absolutely insipid campaign logo, basically appropriately representative of the candidate herself, but use your imagination a little and it becomes fun to play with. (To me it seems to stand unmistakeably for "to the right!".)

    "Swipe Right for Hillary" will be a Tinder ad before this is all over and done with.

    In today's edition of probably not a good idea.

    If you want to read the whole thing.

    A lot of Sanders supporters are posting this on social media, and it's doing more to drive away the people Sanders needs to sway to get the nomination than not. It's the kind of tone-deaf idiocy that, while not surprising, is disappointing.

    I truly feel like America is following the same path as the Roman Empire...

    -Insane Person in power: Check
    -Military Forces Stretched Thin over the World: Check
    -Cutting Taxes while still keeping budget the same: Check....

    We're probably gonna split soon :p

    Well, at least we can take comfort from the fact that if we fall like the Roman Empire, then we'll probably take the rest of the world with us.

    Anyway, here's another late night political pic:
