This election was the biggest shit-show that's been seen in our time. I don't know if the bar will ever get raised again.
You're not kidding.

All standards for civility and dignity were shattered, often in crude juvenile ways -- and people got away with it. Factual accuracy in arguments was simply dismissed as not important.

The level of choosing leadership fell to that of a reality TV show, and we all know they have as much actual reality as the WWE.

I fear we'll never overcome this, because the bar isn't just low, it fell to the ground.

Well let's see.

Clinton usurped Sanders to get the nod from the DNC by pulling strings.
Trump followed the say whatever it ever it takes to get the nomination and basically Rick-rolled everybody along the way.

Nope, I was not happy at seeing either of them on the ballot.

IMO, what we're going to see when we open the box isn't going to match the packaging of the POTUS-elect.

Some will be happy, but I suspect there will be a lot of disappointments along the way.

I think we're gonna be like Brad Pitt at the end of Seven when we open the box.

Sometimes people are faced with the prospect of truth. I'm pleased to see Rolling Stone may actually be thinking outside their little box.

During the cold war when the US and the (then) USSR were at odds there were massive operations to gather intelligence on each other. We got very little information from the USSR. What we did get when we got it was golden. The USSR got vast amounts of information from us. The problem was it was mostly fabricated. So what we got was pristine and they got so much information they had problems validating or invalidating what they got. This type of information seeding is a technique which I really think has been put into the hands of the masses thanks to social media. People seem to be more than willing to "spread someone else's word"  all too eagerly when it lines up with their set of values. That's just human nature though. I try not to cosign anybody else's BS. The Rolling Stone has (for me) always been a great cosigner of a lot of BS. This seems to be a bit of a departure for them.

Well, at least this time we didn't get such intelligence about Russia and decide to retaliate by invading France.

Along the same lines, funny how somehow it's perfectly OK for the US to plant malware in the Iran to make centrifuges self destruct, but when others invade our cyberspace, it's an act of war.

Cyberwarfare isn't just a buzzword anymore, it's a real thing. The US is constantly under attack by any number of nations at any given time. We do the same thing right back to. Most of the time it's used for information gathering and not outright sabotage that would alert anyone to the goings-on.

As to the acts of war, it all depends on whose side you're on.
