    The Republicans are looking at a special budget bill to help fund the border wall.

    "Boy, we sure hate government spending and it's totally out of control!" Weren't that their words when Obama was in office? The wall is such a stupid idea that is both expensive and very cumbersome to build and will not solve the problem of illegal immigration.

    We finally have a premiere date!
    To say I'm excited is an understatement! I'm glad to see it's not too much more of a wait either!

    I've seen various protests on TV throughout my lifetime and I can honestly say that I can remember the last time I saw global protest as big as this time! Those crowds were just unbelievable and smashed expected attendance records!

    I watched the whole Steven bomb this morning and while I don't want to give anything away, I will say you're in for a real treat! That was one of the best Steven bombs ever!

    2016 was much better for me personally than last year. I managed to get 6 trips in and already have more lined up for next year. Having SoS make a comeback and getting to see everyone there was such a treat and is definitely one of the biggest highlights for me! The July 4th holiday weekend was also one of the best ones I've ever had due to being able to spend it with a very close friend of mine and even she had a great time as well!

    Last year, I managed to lose 50 pounds and this year, I've successfully kept the weight off and even gained some muscle mass due to getting some weight lifting in while doing my usual walks everyday. Everyone else in my family looks and feels great too!

    News-wise, I'd have to say two of the biggest things that stood out to me were sports related stories. The first being Leicester City winning the Premiere League back in May and the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series in November, thus ending their 108 year drought. No one expected either of these teams to go all the way!

    So guess who jumped on the Yuri on Ice bandwagon? I watched the first episode earlier and I'm already liking it with both its music and character development and dynamic!

    So it seems Trump didn't like SNL's latest cold opening. Alec Baldwin had a great response to him of "You release your tax returns and I'll stop impersonating you."
    Our President-elect ladies and gentlemen.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! My plans today are watching the parade, going to see Moana, and then helping my Mom with the cooking.

    I'm not gonna lie, that was one of the best if not the best animated sequences in the whole anime!
    I completely agree with you in regards to TOFi expanding their talent pool! I noticed the similarities right away as well and it really hurts the dub in general.

    While it's technically not anime, it's a live action movie based off one. We're getting a live action Full Metal Alchemist in 2017. Here's the trailer for it.

    Lots of protests against Trump in various cities across the country. Shock has turned to anger now. Hopefully this sends a strong message to him that if he fucks up badly, he's going to hear an earful from the people.

    Now that I've digested last night's results, I can give my complete though. Before I do, as I was heading to work this morning, I've noticed a very hushed atmosphere. I think everyone is still trying to process what happened last night. It was a very eerie feeling.

    Like everyone else, I was stunned at the results. Getting all the "Simpsons did it", "equivalent exchange", etc jokes out of the way, here's my analysis on the whole thing:

    -Throughout the campaign, Trump said he could flip the rust belt states. Well lo and behold, he did it! These states haven't gone Republican in years! I can understand why though. Rural voters who've lost their manufacturing jobs were very upset and felt like they weren't being heard. Trump came out and connected with them, hence why they came out in droves to vote for him. You've got to empathize with this group on a technicality that they've gone through rough times. Clinton made a mistake by not reaching out to this group and thought she could hold that "blue firewall" easily.

    -Clinton was a terrible candidate. There's no way around it. One thing to keep in mind the areas in the rust belt who went from Trump went for Sanders in the primary. While I'm skeptical he would have beaten Trump, he would have had a good shot at least. It also did help that Clinton brought a lot of baggage with her, was very unpopular, and didn't bring out the excitement Obama did. Many people simply do not like her for various reasons.

    -On a side note, the county I live in here in Georgia actually went for Clinton! I had to do a double take because it's considered the most conservative county in the Metro Atlanta area. However, it's a very highly educated area, a demographic Trump did do well in and they went Rubio in the primary, not Trump.

    No matter how you look at it, this is an election that's going to be talked about for a long time. Even though I didn't like any of the candidates, one piece of advice I can give to everyone who's upset tonight is that life will move on. People seem to be forgetting that we have a strong system of checks and balances and if Trump does something to really piss off the country, the voters will be giving him an earful about it along with results to boot in the 2018 midterms. If there's a bright spot for the Dems, the incumbent party tends to lose in the midterms anyway. Let's not forget, it's very easy for a candidate to promise everything during a campaign and then not deliver once in office. Obama should teach us a lesson in that.

    Well it's Election Eve, and I just want to give my final thoughts before it's (hopefully) all over tomorrow evening.

    I have to say this has been one of the most remarkable and unpredictable elections I've lived through. Everything from Trump's rise, to the debates, the e-mail scandal, pussy-gate, and so on has lead to many twists and turns here. Personally, I think this is one election that won't be forgotten for a long time and one that is to be written for the history books and is also ripe to be analyzed by historians years down the road.

    I'm nervouscited about the results tomorrow and can only hope there's a positive path forward after this.
