The Republicans (Right-wing) want to help the rich, but screw the poor and middle class
The Democrats (Theoretically left-wing, but really center-right these days) want to help the poor, but screw the rich and middle class (Except themselves).
Both sides are bought and paid for by large corporations.
Both sides want to screw the middle class.
Both sides will say whatever it takes to get re-elected.
Both sides are hypocrites and liars.
Some of the American people have been completely brainwashed by one party or the other
Some of the American people are so sick of it or so apathetic that they won't vote at all
Some of the American people will go through all of the issues for each choice and pick the best candidate (In their opinion)
Some of the American people have no idea what's going on, so will just vote for whoever their religious leader, family member, or friend tells them is better.
The media will consistently and accurately report the current viewpoint of that last category.
This situation will continue until we reform the electoral system so third-party candidates are actually feasible.
I got my ass handed to me Saturday night doing improv. Had a horrible performance, bombed, sucked, etc. I feel bad for the group that invited us to open. They chose us because they thought we were good, did not live up to that.

That would be in the 'ballpark' of a literary/rhetorical form known as chiasmus. But, yes, I failed to get 'Internet Explorer' in there, so forget about it. Inverting "Internet Explorer" to "stay-at-home Luddite:" just won't fly.
For a double shot of chiasmus, with this raw material, you're going to have to pony-up to DD or OG, I think.
Two of your ripostes on this thread got #5 from me; your wit's sparkling today !
At least, I think so. Finally found a venue, my vote is for: [^]
Now, I have an idea and I'm curious as to what you think. It's already an urban, hipster wedding, so we were thinking, that in the wee hours, well after dinner service and everyone is pretty drunk: Food trucks will arrive. [^] Served by a man in a lucha libre mask. Am the only one that gets hungry at the end of wedding? Maybe not this one, but there's a hundred hip food trucks, so we would sample them and pick one.
I'm still trying to figure out what a urban, hipster wedding is all about but I'll let that slide.
When it comes to weddings I wish that people would relax and do something simple. Throw up a couple of tents in a backyard, have tons of cold drinks and a big BBQ. Serve everyone at about $10 per person instead of $50+. That way people can relax and enjoy a nice evening of socializing instead of running through the same tired old wedding cliches all evening.
Then again, I'm a man with two daughters - so I might have other motives here.

It will not be traditional, no religion involved, probably not going to do a lot of the traditional stuff (throwing bouquet, chicken dance, etc.) The space is essentially an old warehouse painted white. No flower girl, no ring boy, no giant bridal parties or 16+ groomsmen.
