    Part of me refuses to accept that tonight's results transpired in the real world. Like, Russian hackers sabotaged the election, or there was a gas leak and I'm just really, really disoriented right now.

    The best Paul harnden story was the one where he gave his son one of the jackets as a birthday gift but the son would have rather had cash than one of his dad's ugly jackets so got his girlfriend to flog it off on eBay

    http://m.ebay.com/itm/261559374329?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&_mwBanner=1




    This was given to my Boyfriend by his father, Paul, but he hardly wears it and it can't be sold back to a retail outlet. The retail price in Liberty was £3000. The Chest fits a 40inch, which is the models size. The label says large but it would be better suited for a M-L, as the cut is slightly small.

    There are four deep inside pockets and the buttons are made of horn. The interior is white cotton and the exterior is black waxed cotton so its shower proof. The item is Made in England. It's designed by Paul in the workshop and made in Surrey.

    If you have any questions please feel free to email me and i'll try and respond by that evening at the latest.

    If you like this item, check out my other listings. I'm having to sell a lot of clothes as i'm moving to Australia ... pack light and all :)

    Y'all thinking of moving abroad, not any better, I spent all day explaining what the hell happened to my bewildered coworkers in a haze of disbelief and depression

    There are approximately 156M white, non-Hispanic eligible voters in the US (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tan...rate-will-be-the-most-diverse-in-u-s-history/)

    Approximately 49% of the US population is male.

    This means one of two* things:

    1. Over 75% of the white male population voted for Trump
    2. Women and minorities actually voted for Trump


    *I'm still holding out a sliver of hope for 3. massive voter fraud leading to a recall election

    29% of Latinos voted for him, I'm still having a hard time processing that one (well, and the overall result obvs)

    Still the most bewildering stat to me is the 54% participation rate. I understand reasons for feeling disengaged, but that is a pathetic number when you see what's at stake

    White men AND women, particularly those without college, showed up to vote for Trump in overwhelming numbers. Essentially, white people b are staying to vote like a minority, which they are on their way to bring, though they are not yet. I think that you guys are all underestimating the degree of resentment against both liberal values (aka political correctness) and economic decline among a very segment of the population.

    Finally, let's take this to current events if you guys want to discuss the continuing circus.

    In fashion thoughts, thinking of ordering a midnight blue leather type 3 jacket.

    huh...everything I've seen so far has pointed to record turnouts ?

    That place is absurd (even though I keep going there) ... need an SWD-CE without the psychopaths--not to build an echo chamber, as disagreement can be healthy, but I just can't imagine the folks here to be completely off their rockers

    No can do. The guys in there are not crazy, some just happen to hold a worldview opoosed to your own. It's a good thing topo be forced out of your comfort zone. This, right here, is precisely a echo chamber.

    Anyway, I'm going. to move any further discussion of the election to CE. You all are strong enough to stake out territory and defend it.
