The failing New York Times has called Alabama for Jones.  Dems have shown their electoral mettle by defeating a child molester.  Just barely.

NBC is refusing to call it, with Jones ahead by about 14,000 votes and 95 percent of the votes counted.

If the final margin of victory is less than 0.5%, there will be an automatic recount from what I gather.  But the Alabama Supreme Court stayed a lower court ruling to preserve digital voting records.  It's all so wonderfully messy.  I'm happy Jones won; this narrows the Senate majority and may lead to less getting done.  Of course, I would have been happy had Moore won, too. 

Onward to November 2018!

Mitch McConnell and Jeb! have both called for Roy Moore to step down. That should be enough to propel Moore to victory, if any propulsion was necessary.

Oops. I was wrong!

Dems have shown their electoral mettle by defeating a child molester.  Just barely.

In a state that “grab them by the pussy” won by 28 points.

But I agree that this was a unique situation. Some R candidates are not child molesters, and most know not to say things like “even though we had slavery” out loud.

'Six women told The Washington Post that Moore pursued them in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Five were teenagers at the time, and one was 22. Moore, who denied misconduct but admitted to possibly dating high school girls, was in his early 30s at the time. One woman, Leigh Corfman, said she was 14 and Moore was 32 when he took her to his house, gave her alcohol and touched her sexually.'   https://www.washingtonpost.com/powerpost/voters-head-to-the-polls-in-contentious-senate-race-in-alabama/2017/12/11/26e36b56-deb7-11e7-8679-a9728984779c_story.html?pushid=5a30b060edb3621d000000ca&tidr=notifi_push_breaking-news&utm_term=.0059ee3e13ca

Pro-abortionist is not a thing. It's pro-choice.
Pro-life people are pro-life until the child is born, after that they don't give a f**k and are ready to apply death penalty to the person some 20 years later. So, pro-life people are actually pro-misery.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Sure we can choose to do good or evil. This is called free will.
The real misery is behind the scenes of a grotesque billion dollar business, causing untold trauma.
A very small percentage of the 60 million in the US are from rape or life threatening danger to the mother.
Some women do, strange to report in such a narcissistic era, opt to give their lives for the unborn child.
This happened to a relative, albeit more than 50 years ago, a heroic lady.
