    Thanks NW. Needed something positive. I just hope we are able to maintain all of this progress.

    Our sharemarket sure is panicking – all ords down 2%, ASX 200 down 4% – there go my retirement.

      GM 99ts.

      The world is panicking.

      Check out @joshtpm timeline now if you want to get really depressed.

      What America is showing the world now is that white people’s fears have now made the US an isolationist, regional power.

      Putin will bait DJT by invading the Balkans, and we’ll abandon NATO, just as Putin (who will control the levers of power in the US) wants.

      We’ll watch China and Russia rise, the world will become more polluted, violent (nukes for everyone!) and overpopulated (birth control for anyone is a big no-no) while DJT sells our western beauty (including National Parks) to the Koch brothers.

      The US will retreat to its position as a regional power as the oceans overtake low-lying coastal and inland delta areas.

      Absolutely unbelievable, absolutely dystopian.

      Hope MSM is proud of themselves for the downfall of the US as superpower, while they themselves are out of jobs, since the only ones allowed to keep their presses open will be Breitbart and Drudge.

      Sorry to paint such a dark vision, but at this moment I absolutely despise capitalism and commercial media (I didn’t post any tweets in Josh Marshall’s timeline now because it would only add to the darkness of this comment).

    I want to apologize to all POC for the white people of this country. I am distraught that we have so many stupid white people. I am ashamed of my country that they have voted for a crude charlatan. I have lost 2 sisters to cancer and am a breast cancer survivor; I have never felt so down.

      I certainly hope the Detroit Free Press is right. Clinton must win MI, WI, NC or two of these three to win the presidency.

    John King is a trip on CNN ya all..
    He keeps saying trying to find votes for Hillary in Madison 60% reporting It looks like she only has about 90k more votes in that county if these numbers hold up . Not good…
    Now trump red county 70% reporting has about 2k votes remaining here if numbers hold up that’s great for him.

    I was feeling more confident in the last couple days about the election from what I heard from the polls. Maybe Nate was right. That makes it so much worse in thinking of a Donald Trump as President along with Rudy, Newt and crew as chosen admin team. We will have gone from the most intelligent, least corrupt, caring administration to corrupt, racist, inept, inexperienced maybe in history. High to low. I am really praying Hillary can still pull this off.

      GE DF.

      It was.

      All of it.

      The GOP got their wish, they’ve got an unhinged moron in charge of all 3 branches of government (see upthread comment) to 99ts.

      The voters allowed this unconstitutional action, and the US and the world will pay a price.

      This is first time (to my knowledge) that the separation of powers has been unraveled, and this country and the world will look far different when the next Presidential election takes place.

      We are now living in the reimagined fantasy of the South winning the Civil War, 150 years later.

      Heaven help us all.

      Me too. I’m in the process of closing all my social media accounts. I’m just waiting for the final result. I’m looking for an international Internet provider so I can get email and have access to the Internet. A black company in the US would be fine. please let me know if anyone has any ideas. I’m also cancelling my COMCAST cable which owns MSNBC. I was thinking about getting sling. I want to keep OWN but I want to get rid of Comcast. Finally, I’m getting rid of Sprint, getting a very cheap cell phone and landline. If there’s a AA owned cell co pany I would prefer that.

      Thank you, amk, for checking in, sending us your best wishes.

      Absolutely unbelievable, what white fear has done to this country and the balance of power in the world.

      Best wishes to you, as US sinks into its role as isolated, impotent has-been.

      Power abhors a vaccum, so there’s sure to be a lot of jostling in the world as Britain and the US exit the world stage, in tandem.

      Congratulations, USA, you’ve elected an unhinged dictator (whose only experience is swindling and firing people on #RealityTV) with NOTHING to check his powers.

      Sad to see you and Chips go, but completely understandable. This is no longer the America established by our founding fathers. Damn.

    It looks like the racists and the opportunists are going to “get their country back”, but it will not be anything like they imagine. They came all out for a man who used them.

    I do not see how she can get to the 270 from 209 before he gets 270 from 244. Working on telling myself that I will get through this as I have other times, but if he wins, the west will continue the decline that began with Brexit. Never thought to see this. A few days ago I had changed m y mind about going out and about after election day; now I have to reconsider this.
    I hope and pray that I can sign on later and rejoice about a close win for Hillary, a dream of a Hollywood ending.

    The results so far are not what I am hoping for either.
    Perhaps everything happens for a reason. Who knows? Maybe I say it to comfort myself.
    I say to everyone here take a breather … and re-group in a while.
    You are the change you want. Perhaps this is a blessing (thinking of it any other way … might just do me harm). I don’t know. I am just accepting what is.
    Hopefully I can sleep tonight.

    Have a good night all.

      I hope so. The support during such a time of grief and desolation is needed. Despair is not the path our President would want us to choose, so we need to be reminded that there are still people of good will. We all need to connect to the Obama family and be inspired by them and support them in their life ahead. Thank you, NW, for all you have done for us and this community.
