NYPD are looking for Ahmad Khan Rahami, a naturalised Afghan born 28 year old, for questioning.

He also appears to be responsible for the backpack bomb found in New Jersey yesterday too, though it's not clear if he's responsible for the pipe bomb planted during the charity race in New Jersey on Saturday.

So, I don't know if I mentioned this, but apparently my preliminary security report for the building I work in (the A4 page I put together as a taster and freebie as my offer for a more thorough site analysis) has been kept in an office for the past year and repeatedly looked at and referenced, all while no-one has actually bothered to come and ask me anything about it or for a more exhaustive follow up.

These people are hopeless.  Literally hopeless.

Diane James on Romanians:

    “On 1 January 2014 the floodgates will open for Bulgarian and Romanian citizens [to come to Britain].

    “We are not just talking about pressure on services from immigration but also, and I have to say it, the crime associated with Romanians.”

UKIP has picked it's new leader.  Diane James was the former home affairs spokesperson for UKIP, admirer of Putin (of course) and graduate of Thames Valley University, which is disconcerting.  Thames Valley may have improved now, I don't know for sure, but when I was applying for places, it was well known the main requirement of Thames Valley was "has a pulse, can move under own power".  It was Regent University for people too poor to sit around and smoke pot all day.  And it had been that way for decades.

Meanwhile, the press and Hillary Clinton are discussing Pepe the Frog.

Just when you thought this election cycle couldn't get more surreal...

Applied to go back to Switzerland, for a doctoral program.

I think my Australian passport may give me an edge over other British applicants, in that if we do do something stupid re: Brexit, arrangements with Australia will remain unaffected and so shouldn't pose a problem for an academic or work visa.  Since these programs are all 4+ years long, and who knows what idiocy we will see in the meantime.

It's not as good as an EU second nationality would be...but I'll work with what I have.

Hillary Clinton's national lead over Donald Trump continues to narrow. Clinton now leads Trump 48 percent to 44 percent, a decline of 2 points since last week, according to results from the latest NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll.

Quote
In a four-way match-up, Clinton leads Trump by just 2 points — 42 percent to 40 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson maintains 11 points, essentially unmoved even after his "Aleppo" campaign gaffe, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein maintains 4 points.

Someone posted this all over my workplace.

I am simultaneously angry and cringing.

What I find most amusing and yet also frustrating about this election is how shockingly many white men can't seem to wrap their minds around the fact that the votes of women and minorities actually matter. Let alone that they matter enough to potentially render white male votes irrelevant.

TBH, it's been the case that since the 1950s, the Democrats have not had at least 50% of the white vote.  And it doesn't seem to have harmed their electoral prospects any.

A multitude of crowbars at extreme velocity.

Speaking of prophecy, it was exactly a year ago today I said Trump would get the nomination.

57
Is that due to the recent change in law with company liability on such cases, or were they got under the old rules?

BTW, just thought I should mention Tila Tequila, she of minor fame before she had brain damage and started to worship Hitler and worry about the Illuminati, is going to be a keynote speaker at an alt-right conference.

Yes, you've read right: the alt-right is politically compatible with the kind of paranoid, racist nonsense one spews due to literal brain damage.

This pneumonia thing has reignited the Bernie crowd, in the very unlikely event that Clinton pulls out in the next few weeks, what kind of chance do you think Bernie would have of 1) Getting the Transferred nomination and 2) Getting voted in instead of Trump?

I would've thought her VP pick would take precedence in any such situation.  It's what the VP pick is for, after all.

Though Sanders polls better than Clinton against Trump, I suspect the reason Trump's attacks were so focused on Clinton is that Sanders is the weaker candidate when it came to smears, and that they intended to make hay with the socialism/Communism stuff if he did win the nomination.  It'd be the whole Tea Party circa 2010 playbook all over again.  Hashtag "creeping communism".

OK, LMNO, you wanted to know about undecided voters?

Here are some undecided voters.
