    President Harris soon...very, very soon. Don't make me say I told you so, because I will do it unashamedly.

    Even though I made a career around programming I have problems with logic. From the link:

    As a demonstration of the principle, consider two contradictory statements—"All lemons are yellow" and "Not all lemons are yellow"—and suppose that both are true. If that is the case, anything can be proven, e.g., the assertion that "unicorns exist", by using the following argument:

    We know that "Not all lemons are yellow", as it has been assumed to be true.

    We know that "All lemons are yellow", as it has been assumed to be true.

    Therefore, the two-part statement "All lemons are yellow or unicorns exist" must also be true, since the first part of the statement ("All lemons are yellow") has already been assumed, and the use of "or" means that if even one part of the statement is true, the statement as a whole must be true as well.

    However, since we also know that "Not all lemons are yellow" (as this has been assumed), the first part is false, and hence the second part must be true to ensure the two-part statement to be true, i.e., unicorns exist (this inference is known as the Disjunctive syllogism).

    The procedure may be repeated to prove that unicorns do not exist (hence proving an additional contradiction where unicorns do and do not exist), as well as any other well-formed formula. Thus, there is an explosion of true statements.

    In a different solution to the problems posed by the principle of explosion, some mathematicians have devised alternative theories of logic called paraconsistent logics, which allow some contradictory statements to be proven without affecting the truth value of (all) other statements.[7]

    Note: This isn't directed at anyone in particular, or in response to any recent posts.

    In the interest of equal time, I offer the following.

    Anyone who is "happy" about this current political chaos, with Biden dropping out, and now whisperings of his potentially imminent resignation, is possibly an idiot, or at the very least very shortsighted.

    If you think it is good, either because you think it is more likely that Trump gets elected because of it, or you think it is less likely that Trump gets elected because of it, you are ignoring the fact that the USA has been historically vulnerable to attacks whenever there is "top level" political uncertainty. It is not good.

    It someone can't distinguish your jokes perhaps it is on you, or maybe "I told you so" just isn't funny...

    Not sure what historical attacks you are referring to??

    I don't think Biden dropping out of the presidential race increases the political uncertainty. I think you can make the case that it increases our political certainty due to the amount of concern there was over Bidens age. Either way, I wouldn't call people who are happy about Biden leaving the race an idiot or short sighted. He just wasn't their preference.

    It couldn't be held. Biden was clearly not fit but that was withheld until the debate, after the debate there was nothing more to be done.
    The problem is why they insisted of withholding Biden's condition. Also Trump's crew made a serious mistake that they did not see that Biden will go zap zip slluuzz in the debate and allowed to take place very early in the race. They might have paid that because it was almost certain Biden will be replaced but the attack on Trump although despicable was very helpful for him and will probably save his election.

    I think the entire thing appeals to the collapsetarian in me. Sort of "you reap what you sow" mentality. I think this entire political process is terrible for the country, but there's nothing I can do about it and voters on both sides put themselves in this situation. So what else is there for me to do but to get a few cheap laughs out of it?

    In 2020, Biden literally ran out of his basement under the notion that "we're in the middle of a once in a century pandemic, I'm doing the right thing, and Donald Trump is doing the wrong thing by holding these outdoor rallies" then over the years there have been people pointing out that Biden is in an obvious mental decline but the DNC and the corporate media vehemently denied it (remember the shortest lived propaganda "cheap fakes") until it got to the point to where you just couldn't anymore.

    The Trump administration was an absolute disaster. His main two priorities in 2016 was to "build the wall" and "drain the swamp". Well, we have no wall and he appointed John Bolton of all people as the national security advisor (need I say more). And what's his pitch in 2024? I'm going to make America great again and this time I'll really do it. Sure Trump, sure.

    This stretches back to as far as I can remember. I remember in 2008, Obama had a golden opportunity to unite this country and instead he pursued identity politics which deeply divided the country and I think was one of the contributing factors to putting Trump (the obvious outsider) over the finish line.

    So yeah, I am incredibly frustrated with the state of our country, I blame the partisans for putting the R's and D's we have in power, and it does make me a bit gleeful that this election cycle has gone to crap.

    I wouldn't get frustrated, it's just politics. lol

    But I can't think of one political system that doesn't have it's problems, we're no different.

    There is no denying either one of those statements.

    Let me see if I understand you correctly. You're in favor of democracy when the electoral college snubs your party, but against it when your convinced that your party candidate must go. Is that about right?
