    Bill Weld has a smallish campaign, but the rest are pretty much confined to their own localities hoping they get a national voice by luck.

    Unless the incumbent was WILDLY UNPOPULAR and the party turned against them, anyone else running against the sitting President in the primary basically has zero chance of winning, especially because the party (in the case the republican party) will put all their support behind the President. Most of the people that challenge a sitting president in the primary are doing it on principal I guess? Because they realistic have no shot whatsoever.

    It plainly obvious when you know an issue quite well too... I see some old college acquaintances posting militantly in support of the protests and I'm going...where the hell are you getting your news? It's just wrong. It's not mainstream media, can't blame them because they've been pretty even-keel about it all.

    My younger nephew won his 184 lb weight class Sectional Championship (high school wrestling). He's headed to the State tournament next month.

    I'm sure it's completely intentionally playing on human psychology, but I am still 10x more likely to whitelist a website from my adblock if the site gives me the option to continue to the website anyways without whitelisting.

    I never whitelist anything. Either I continue without or I close the site and find the article somewhere else.

    Most of the time I will look elsewhere, but I might temporarily whitelist something if that's the only place I can find what I'm looking for. The problem is that I'm not against these sites running ads to try and generate revenue, it's that they run SO MANY ads and they are all obnoxious and intrusive.
