The solution to America's problems is NOT to vote and hope for the best, it's to vote for the best candidate you can (and vote for the squishiest person if they're all bad options), and then put the fucking squeeze on them. Don't vote for unrealistic candidates, a libcuck who we can bully and wins is far better than a perfect anarchosocialist third party candidate who loses to a right wing zealot (read: Republican).
Every language has some bullshit in it. That's because our languages evolved over time, and continue to evolve according to the whims of those who speak them. Much like how our bodies have some stupid inefficient bullshit in the way they're constructed (what the fuck is up with the blood vessel over the fucking retina?), languages will have weird little shit that makes no sense for a variety of reasons simply because it works well enough to get by.
FUCK Olive Garden! Got some leftover pasta and it was so fucking mediocre, and it was really expensive, too. Why would you eat there when there are so many vastly superior Italian restaurants here? And another thing, why would you build an Olive Garden with such stiff competition, when you could've built a Red Lobster?! That's a slam dunk! You have no competition in seafood restaurants to make us realize how lame it is!
