The worst election in modern US history

It is upon us! We are not worthy!
Hilary Clinton, whose moral scruples are somehow less then her popularity, which is as low as it can get in the modern era, versus Donald Trump, as nasty a piece of work as has been seen in some time in US politics.
It'll be bare knuckle brawling from here on out, and I get the feeling the Drumpf will have the advantage in a pure mud slinging dirty campaign. Then again, I could be wrong.
But I'm not wrong when I predict this will be a low voter turnout. At this point, who cares who wins?
Hilary Clinton is More of the Same! Whereas Trump is Power to the One Percent!
You know, it'll be shit sandwiches, as Ian Welsh calls it, for everyone, regardless of who wins. The difference between the two, is while Hilary will force you all to buy the shit sandwich, she won't force you to eat it, whereas Trump will force you to eat it, but you won't have to buy it.
Well, there's nuances, and everything to consider. What kind of bread, and what animal the shit is from. Regardless, in the end, it's still shit sandwiches.
You all know, as I do, that electing Clinton won't change a damn thing. The US is headed into decline. It's been stagnating for years, now, and there's no turnaround in sight. And with a Clinton presidency, that turnaround will be longer off by an extra four to eight years. Meanwhile, a Trump presidency would ensure you would know how bad times could get, perhaps even right away.
Ah, choice.

Most CRA auditors polled say Canada's tax system is skewed to protect the wealthy

This is hardly surprising. This should have been a top priority during the new government's installment over these past few years, but it hasn't. Things should be far better, but they're more or less the same as the previous government. Being slightly better than the Cons on taxes on the well-off isn't an inspiring reason to re-elect these chumps, and they're well within the danger zone of losing the next election over reasons such as this. Why bother voting Liberal if all Canada's getting is less-mean Conservatives. Canadians wanted change, not this tepid nonsense.
Worse off, the optics are awful. Canada needs that tax revenue, now more than ever, what with the government fumbling around in regards to that US President who's intent on tanking economies world-wide.

I share the concerns voiced in this article.
Honestly, the Russians had nothing to do with the 2016 election. The claims being made are now becoming toxic and insensible. It's difficult to bare with progressives and liberals carrying water for neo-liberals and neo-conservatives. People are being fed yellow cake, and are eating it all up, crumbs and all.
There's no good to be had, attacking Trump from this angle. It's absolutely shameful.

Why Did Two-Thirds of These Weird Antelope Suddenly Drop Dead?

My goodness. What is suggested in this report is how a changing climate can negatively effect our physiology, which could turn our own bodily systems against itself.
Only one factor fit the bill: climate. The places where the saigas died in May 2015 were extremely warm and humid. In fact, humidity levels were the highest ever seen the region since records began in 1948. The same pattern held for two earlier, and much smaller, die-offs from 1981 and 1988. When the temperature gets really hot, and the air gets really wet, saiga die. Climate is the trigger, Pasteurella is the bullet.
