    I used to wonder how the tards' brains did not explode from cognitive dissonance.

    One moment, they are celebrating the massive impact the email leaks had on Clinton's election chances.

    Then after they learn Russia was behind the leaks, they attempt to claim Russia had no impact!

    But I finally figured out why their heads don't explode from cognitive dissonance.

    That would require cognition. Instead, they are just parrots blindly repeating what their propagandists tell them from one moment to the next, and never engage a single brain cell in independent thought.

    Vegas tilts odds towards the "team" objectively most likely to lose, so that more people bet on that team, so no matter who wins, Vegas makes money by taking a small cut off the top regardless of who wins, and has enough in the pot to pay either winner. In other words, only idiots cite Vegas odds for support of "a team."

    They just arrested a doctor in my area for over-prescribing opioids.
    Gangs sell fentanyl dirt cheap. That is what is killing most of the morons.
    If you need doctor prescribed medications, fine.
    We're discussing what is killing 70,000 Americans a year.

    Well that and the Democrats all have to go through a primary election which helps Trump's odds.

    Facts, shitferbrains.

    1) Assange has repeatedly stated that no state actor (that means a government, numbnutz) aided him in getting the information he had.

    2) The data transfer rates from the DNC servers were to fast to have gone over the internet....They were downloaded at the source onto disks or thumb drives.

    Assange is kind of an asshole, let's face it. I trust people better than you on your second point.

    Well, I'd think that normally a primary would improve dems' chances by winnowing out unpopular ideas, but the problem is that the dems (and Trump's party) may be so enamoured with policies popular to them but unpopular to the majority … that we're fucked no matter who wins.

    Whether or not Assange is an asshole is irrelevant.

    People better and smarter than me about tech are the ones who have worked out the data transfer rates.

    You have neither jack nor shit to support your crackpot RUSSIA! conspiracy lunacy.

    Looking at the odds though. For example The Democrats have 3 or four in their top tier. If it were four that would average out to a 25% chance just to get over that hurdle. Then face Trump. Where as Trump is already sitting at about a 50/50 shot. So, his odds are going to tower over the other candidates until after the primary when it's just one on one.
