It seems that America’s election comes to a conclusion tomorrow with two of the most unfit presidential candidates in history. We’re left to reflect on what the hell went wrong; how did we end up with Hillary and Trump as the two main party candidates to choose from? Both of them are hardly worthy of being POTUS due to their faults and scandals; however, both have a very dedicated fan base and the country is dichotimized. Even though both candidates are liars and cheaters, they are different in small ways.
Hillary has been in politics for over 30 years and while she has some accomplishments, she has also done some deplorable things. From refusing to listen to advice on how to handle sensitive communications to taking large amounts of money as speaking fees from Wall Street. There are even questionable practices with a charitable foundation that bears her name. Despite all the issues surrounding her, Trump is possibly even worse.
Trump started his business ventures when he received a “small” business loan of $14 million from his father. He has been very quick to shaft the small businesses he hires to do work for him and go bankrupt on his businesses that have failed. Along with failures is his need to lie about even the most basic things. He has been known to deny saying things even when there is video or audio evidence .
The appeal of Trump is that he is not a politician. I would argue what makes that theory null and void is he’s a corrupt businessman that takes advantage of people and has even ruined some small businesses. Trump’s idea of being smart includes not paying (or paying very little) taxes. While paying limited taxes is the goal of most corporations, this places more of a burden on middle class tax paying citizens.
Hillary claims to want to help the middle class too, but she has endorsed trade agreements that have helped corporations move overseas so that they can pay less for manual labor. While we can’t make everything in America, many of thing things we CAN produce are now made overseas to increase corporate profit margins.
While it seems that voting third party is the answer, our established system makes it impossible for those candidates to win. Possible changes to the way voting works could help add more options to the ballot without a vote being wasted, but that would require an overhaul and the two main parties will not allow that.
The world most certainly won’t end after this election; though there may be many issues America will have to deal with. Trump is not a good businessman; Bill Gates is a good businessman who started his company in a garage. Hillary is not a good politician; Bernie Sanders is a good one who has stayed true to his values and hasn’t changed his position on issues. And while there are some ways to vote their party that wouldn’t be wasted on a swing state, there has to be a better way to vote for third parties without fear of not having your vote count. It’s obvious the current way isn’t working and is just stupid.
Several YouTube playlists were created on our channel to showcase human stupidity and anti-stupidity based on the topics on this site. We have been watching videos and adding ones we feel are worth watching and are entertaining. While we haven’t created any videos yet, there are plans to potentially create some in the future.
There are also many posts nearly ready to be released. We’re working on finishing them up, having our editor to go through them, and then scheduling them to cover the next few months.
In the United States, mass shootings have become a common occurrence with them happening almost daily while some days have multiple events. Sadly, only the more tragic ones take the national news with the latest happening in Orlando, FL. Since that event there have been half a dozen more mass shootings with no hope of them slowing down. Solutions proposed at preventing mass shootings range from allowing less guns to allowing more guns.

Your right to travel in the United States has been a major point since the foundation of the country. The Articles of Confederation served as the first draft to the Constitution and was superseded when the final one was completed in 1789 and the federal government was formed. Allowing the freedom of movement between states was important since each state would be allowed to govern over their citizens. The founders of the country wanted to make sure that states wouldn’t impose limits or make it difficult to travel or move from one state to another.

Everyone knows that if you want to travel by airplane post 9/11 you’re going to have to go through airport security, which means dealing with the TSA. They are tasked with protecting aircrafts and keeping the skies safe. This sounds terrific until it’s pointed out they are ineffective and a major inconvenience.

Vaccines are one of the biggest benefits we gained in life enhancements since the early 1900’s. Current vaccines are estimated to save about 2.5 million lives per year. Even while saving lives and ensuring a higher quality life, vaccines have not been exempt from having backlash against them.

Intelligent design is part of creationism which is a counter argument to evolution. Its belief is that we were designed and created by a god-like being in our present form including all plants and animals and states that species cannot become other species. Many feel that this different opinion should be taught in schools so that students hear both sides of the argument. Currently it shouldn’t because right now it’s more like “Unintelligent Design” since it has no concrete facts for it and many facts against it.

Corporate greed has been killing the middle class for decades. Executives have been rewarding themselves with yearly million dollar plus bonuses while the true workers usually don’t see anything. Corporations have the desire to maximize their profits which they tend to pass on as a cost to their employees by reducing or simply eliminating benefits. Sometimes companies will move their operations overseas and pay pennies per hour to foreign workers just to squeeze out every dollar.

Chemtrails are unknown chemicals being sprayed by airplanes high up in the atmosphere that resemble contrails but usually take longer to dissipate. Theories as to what the chemicals are used for range from weather control to human mind manipulation. What the true purpose may be no one will know, simply because of the fact they are just contrails from planes, and some stick around for a while.
