The Coffee Shop is an open thread-style discussion forum for human interest news of the day.
From Jonathan Pie:
This is an open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments. If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet. Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.
This is an Open Thread. Grab your cup, pull up a chair, sit a spell and share what’s on your mind today.
My fear is that all the lunatic right-wing fringers will turn out to vote, and the left will stay home, which would hand Donald Trump a ‘political mandate’ to do every insane thing that’s come out of his mouth.
Good morning, Nona! Latest poll results I heard had both Clinton and Trump tied and Sanders substantially leading over Trump. If Clinton gets the nomination, will the left stay home? Well she’s not left to begin with, and she is actively courting republicans. In addition some people will never vote for a hawk as the lesser evil, and there is all the Clinton baggage. She will be a disaster as the nominee.
I hope this works – TYT, 5/10/16:
