    Believe it or not, but in the USA you don't need to prove citizenship to vote. In some cases, you can register without any ID at all.

    Voter fraud comes up every election there. There have been numerous attempts to institute an official voter ID, but it never happens for some reason.

    Castro created over 1.2 million refugees, executed tens of thousands, forced homosexuals into work camps, and made freedom of movement, freedom of belief and freedom of speech crimes against the state. He ran mental hospitals as extensions of the penal system, employing electro shock therapy against political prisoners. He was a despot.

    The world is a better place without him.

    The Democrats have lost the house and senate, and iirc the number of democrat state governors is the lowest since the war.

    If these recounts result in a Clinton presidency, the absolute best anyone can hope for is 4 years of getting nothing done.

    The worst case scenario is civil war. If these recounts are not conducted with absolute transparency, that is a very real possibility. The Right is very well armed, and angry enough to vote in Trump. Let that sink in.

    Why do you think Wikileaks hasn't hacked Trump's tax info?

    Because Wikileaks aren't hackers.

    They are a media organization that publishes material given to them by whistleblowers around the world. How does anyone in 2016 not know this?

    I see that Trump has been named in over 3,500 lawsuits over the years. That's more than any presidential nominee in the history of the U. S.! Does that, perhaps, count as an accmplishment that makes Trump look so amazing to his supporters?

    Actually it's over 4,000 now. Here's an interactive website outlining all of them: http://www.usatoday.com/pages/interactives/trump-lawsuits/

    Oh, wait. It's actually 4,000 times he or any of his companies have been the plaintiff or defendant in the last 30+ years. Not exactly the scandal it sounds like.

    Now, about Clinton deleting 33,000 emails...

    Strangerland:

    If she's done something illegal. Or do you just want her under arrest even if she hasn't?

    What? People are arrested on suspicion all the time. It's the job of the courts to determine guilt, not the police.

    Clinton's foundation colluded with drug companies to jack the price of the AIDS medicine it was distributing to third world countries.

    Nothing Trump has ever done or even been accused of comes close to that level. How anyone can just brush that off as standard politics is beyond me.

    Americans never cease to amaze me.

    In the past month, we've seen hard evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding with the media to direct the narrative, hard evidence of tampering in the primaries, direct contradiction of core policies when speaking to business leaders in the Goldman Sachs transcripts, conspiracy to mislead congress, felony collusion with their SuperPACs, paid protestors inciting violence at Trump rallies admitting their deeds on video, leaks of state secrets and intel, political and private donations from every level of media and polling company, and a one million dollar "birthday present" from Qatar, which was followed by a massive arms deal. And the really scary thing is that's just off the to of my head. There's a lot more.

    All of that is out in the open. That's a small amount of what we know so far from the Podesta emails. And despite all of that, Americans are supporting her over Trump - because ..,why, exactly?

    The only people talking about Assange are the ones desperately trying to deflect attention from the CONTENT of the leaks. That's as true today as it was during the Bush administration.

    Clinton and staff have committed numerous crimes. Ignoring this because of the messenger is insane.

    The David Cameron thing wasn't Wikileaks. It was someone's book.

    Odd that you think it was, though. Somehow a lot of people have recently become convinced that Wikileaks is just celebrity gossip - as opposed to verified, vetted leaked government information with a 100% accuracy rating.

    Good to see that someone's damage control dollars are paying off. You can actually read the emails where clintons team are discussing this kind of damage control. It's right there, but so few people will bother. I'll take my downvotes now...

    @Madverts

    That's called shooting the messenger. Just sayin.

    Assange isn't writing the leaks, Wikileaks is publishing them. Dismissing them wholesale because you don't like the frontman is simply burying your head in the sand.

    These potatoes are so small as to not even been mentioned.

    Compared to what else is in this leak, you're absolutely right.

    Collaboration with journalists, Bernie backstabbing, foreign cash, and full knowledge of deleting the emails. Next leak is coming in a couple of days. Interesting reading.

    So the choices are:

    Dammit, America. How does a nation that has produced the greatest number of intellectuals, innovators and creative genii of any country since the fall of the Roman Empire wind up with these as their only options? Seriously, get your s--t together, you're embarrassing yourselves.

    @wtfjapan

    a lot more complex than that, you need to set up a very complex filtering system that pumps up the ground water , filters it , the pumps it back into the ground. This needs to be don until the groud water is back to acceptable levels. They had a similar system in Sydney setup on their ground water many years ago as it was contaminated by a petroleum refinery, cost many $100s millions and many years to complete

    You don't need to build a new multi-million dollar processing facility.

    You need to run a pipe from the pump to the existing multi-million dollar processing facility. The one that's been processing groundwater for the last 8 years or so.

    I really don't understand what the problem is here.

    @papigiulio

    Permissible levels or not, soil should not contain these chemicals period, especially if you are planning to build a facility on it where food will be handled/sold.

    you know what's even more hazardous? Cleaning products.

    Yes, the soil is contaminated. We've known this for over a decade. Yes, the groundwater is contaminated. We've known this for over a decade.

    No, these things don't pose a danger. Because the facility has several layers of concrete, steel, wood, glass and plastic separating the contaminated soil from workers and product.

    If you're really worried, install some pumps and an exhaust fan. That will cost about 10 grand, and take 4 guys about 8 hours to complete. That should be the end of it, and yes, it's that simple.

    Now what am I going to do?

    I guess you'll have to find another damp unlit sub-sub basement floor to lick water from.

    @kapuns

    Why is the worry about toxic water in the basement, instead of why IS there water in the basement?

    Because they knew, with a high level of certainty, where the water came from. The area around the building isn't paved yet, thus rainwater goes down. Once it's paved and all the proper drainage is installed, the problem will stop.

    Everyone involved in construction, maintenance and building operation (ie. People who actually know how buildings work) have been saying this all along. Politicians who have zero knowledge of construction or hazards are putting on a show for the camera.

    If there was an actual danger from gas, they wouldn't have been let into the basement in rubber boots and street clothes. If there was an actual danger of benzene or arsenic or cyanide in the water, they wouldn't be ph-testing it on camera without gloves. (I use that same kit at work, btw - blue is ph-neutral, exactly what you'd expect from rainwater.)

    I honestly can't understand what they're trying to accomplish here.
